Sporting green shirts with the bold words I Am the Revolution of Responsibility, this years message addresses the misconception that youth are not informed of whats going on in their communities and promotes the findings that youth are making a real impact every day. The event, which is spearheaded by the State 4-H Council, allows 4-H youth to meet lawmakers and elected officials, including former 4-H member and Commissioner of Agriculture Adam Putnam, and to experience civic engagement first hand. This is an excellent opportunity for young 4-Hers to learn about the government and how it works, as well as senior 4-Hers to gain more knowledge of their government, said Kaitlyn Pace, Florida 4-H State Council historian and 2012 4-H Day at the Capitol chair. 4-H Day at the Capitol gives 4-H Youth and volunteers the opportunity to promote to their legislators and government officials the positive impacts of the Florida 4-H program. Last year, Florida 4-H youth completed over 100,000 projects in the area of citizenship and leadership development. Our Palm Beach 4-Hers really care about others, said Jon Mayer, 4-H agent in Palm Beach County. The kids volunteer throughout our community every year. For example, this year they have been collecting toiletries such as toothpaste, soap and other essential items, then donating them to organizations and people in need. Many of them even helped raise funds to make this trip possible. Founded in 1909, the Florida 4-H Youth Development Program works annually with more than 230,000 young people, ages 5-18, and nearly 15,000 volunteers. The program is active in all 67 counties and the Seminole Tribe of Florida. Headquartered in Gainesville, its part of the University of Floridas Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences.

Hundreds of supporters attended the event that included a cocktail reception, live and silent auctions, dinner and danc ing. Proceeds raised this evening will assist in funding the American Heart Associations educational programs, outreach ac tivities and research, said Caren and Michael Weinberg, event co-chairs. A good portion of the funds stay right here in South Florida, as in one of our honorees, Dr. James Morris, who has been the recipient of an American Heart Associa tion grant. Dr. Morris was honored in the medical category. Honored in the sports category was Coach Howard Schnellenberger and community honoree was Marleen Forkas. Honorary Heart Ambassador Burt Reynolds was not present, but in a pre-recorded video, he told of how the Heart Association helped him learn that he had five blocked heart valves, and he was able to rectify it. A particularly heartwarming story unfolded with the appearance of little Gavin, son of Susanna Laurenti and Ed Weiser, and grandson of Lynn Laurenti. At birth, Gavin suffered several life-threatening heart problems that were taken care of by doctors assisted by the American Heart Association.

Hennekens, M.D., DrPH? They are all scientists recognized by Science Heroes.com for their discoveries that led directly to saving large numbers of human lives. Hennekens, the first Sir Richard Doll Research Professor in FAUs Charles E. Schmidt College of Medicine, is ranked No. 81 in the history of the world for saving more than 1 million lives. As an epidemiologist or medical detective, he has dedicated his life to the prevention of premature death and disability. My chief motivation to pursue an academic career in preventive cardiovascular medicine was the premature death of my father from sudden cardiac death, said Hennekens, emphasizing that death is inevitable, prema ture death is not. Hennekens was the founding principal investigator of the landmark Physicians Health Study of 22,071 doctors. He was also a subject in the trial and took a placebo for five years when the federally funded grant was terminated early due to a statistically extreme and clinically important reduction in a first heart attack among those assigned at random to aspirin. He credits the dedicated and conscientious efforts of these participating physicians in enabling him to be the first researcher in the world to discover that aspirin prevents a first heart attack. He was also the first to demonstrate that aspirin prevents heart attacks, strokes, and cardiovascular deaths when given within 24 hours after onset of symptoms of a heart attack as well as to a wide variety of patients who have survived an event associated with a blockage in the heart, brain, or legs. Hennekens has also done seminal work on the benefits of statins, angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors, angiotensin receptor blockers (ARB) as well as beta adrenergic blockers all of which play major roles in decreasing premature deaths from heart attacks and strokes. During National Heart Month, it is truly fitting that Professor Hennekens has received this prestigious and well-deserved recognition for his major contributions in the prevention and treatment of a wide range of cardiovascular diseases, said Dr. David J. Bjorkman, M.D., M.S.P.H., the new dean of FAUs Charles E. Schmidt College of Medicine. Hennekens advises the general public that all these cardiovascular drugs of lifesaving benefit should be adjuncts not alternatives to therapeutic lifestyle changes. He strongly advocates avoidance and cessation of smoking, avoidance of obesity, and taking brisk 20 minute daily walks. Even these three simple changes will add years to your life as well as life to your years, said Hennekens, who includes two hours of tennis at least five times a week into his daily regimen. Im not even among the top four in my age group at The Hamlet Country Club where I play on a 55 and older team, despite having been ranked No. 4 in the U.S. in squash when I was 40. Hennekens truly enjoys the exercise and competition and adds that it is far better to be over the hill than under the hill. Science Watch ranked Hennekens as the third most widely cited medical researcher in the world from 1995-2005, and five of the top 20 were his former trainees and/or fellows. Dr. Charles H. Hennekens, M.D., DrPH

Boys & Girls Clubs of Palm Beach County members, ages 6 to 17, learn photography skills and take photographs during scheduled club field trips within the community. This annual exhibition is part of the organizations participation in a national photography competition. Photography helps build confidence as the children discover their hidden artistic skills, said Dennis Young, director of computer education for the Boys & Girls Clubs of Palm Beach County, who directs the project with Anton Spalding, core technology specialist. Many of the participants have never touched a camera before. In the five years we have been providing the program, the young photographers get better and more creative. The photos are truly amazing. More than 7,500 children participate in the Boys & Girls Clubs program at one of 13 clubhouses throughout Palm Beach County. The Boys & Girls Club is the countys largest not-forprofit youth development organization dedicated to serving youth from 6 to 18 years of age, particularly those from disadvantaged circumstances. The project is being hosted at FAU by the University Galleries Museum Educa tion Program, a program that engages FAU art students in providing art educa tion services through interactive tours of exhibitions.

Sincerely, Aileen, Carroll Tilson PR To the Editor: The story on the recent dog rescue and the AMAZING job that the Tri County Humane Society and its supporters and partners have done is wonderful. We are PROUD that our show [Talk of the Town] supports this organization, and we will continue to do so. Jeannette Christos, we know you are watching and smiling down on all the people who are working to continue your legacy! Sincerely, Jacqui Wyatt Director of Marketing Investments Limited/Royal Palm Place Douglas How timely that two editorials appeared side by side in last weeks issue of The Boca Raton Tribune, both alluding to reminders as to how our lives can be more meaningful and lived to the fullest. Your Caught Up In Minutes Or Moments commentary and Dr. Lyras Every Person Needs Tune-Ups were thought-provoking, inspirational, and provided some seriously good reading as to how we balance our lives and how we should put every possible resource to task in living a fulfilled life, not only as individuals, but also with relationships. Thank you for the messages and the Biblical references to carry the messages home---home to a life that brings about happy days no matter the challenges. Psalm 118:24 This is the day the LORD has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it. Happy Day! Emily M LillyI remember Joe Joyce for several reasons. He was my high school principal. He later went on to become a city councilman in my home town, and I covered many of those meetings for the newspaper I worked for up north. But Joe Joyce told me something that has stuck in my mind for many years and what he said is absolutely true. I ran into Joe at a football game. We chatted a bit, particularly about how much time had passed since wed seen each other. And then Joe said this: The older you get, the faster time passes. I dont think I ever heard anything so true. And now that I have become part of the 60plus crowd, I am amazed at how quickly one day leads into another, one week into another, and so on. My wife often wonders why I seem to live in the past. Jokingly, I say that at my age, I have a lot of years behind me and not too many ahead of me. I see her point, and, on occasion, I tell her about something that happened way back when just to bust her up. But she is right. I do seem to enjoy memories that would mean nothing to the youngsters of today. My mother did a lot of living in the past, particularly after my father passed away. She lived to the venerable age of 96 the last 21 years without my father. Time must mean something important to a lot of people. There are so many expressions about time. Time flies when youre having fun. The time is right. No time like the present. Carly Simon sang about not having time for the pain. The Rolling Stones boasted that time was on their side. A few months ago, I was in a thrift store and, no, I didnt buy an old videocassette like I usually do. Instead, I bought a 10-disc set of the original radio series, Amos and Andy. I knew it would be a delight for my older brother, who grew up in the golden age of radio. He even got me hooked. But I was a little young er, and took an early interest in the Amos and Andy TV show. The disc package is still here in the house. I can see it on a nearby ta ble. When my wife asks why I havent sent it yet, I tell her, sheepishly, I havent had the time. Thats a pretty poor excuse. But lately, there have been days that just seemed to pass at the speed of light. Today, for example. My wife and I were out doing a number of errands. The traffic was terrible. Drivers were going horrifically slow. And then we hit every red light. My wife is very impa tient behind the wheel. I try to be a little calmer, but even today, the traffic and long light cycles seemed to wrangle me. Tonight, we stopped for dinner at a place we often visit for their wonderful food. But it took an eternity to bring it. We loaded up on rolls, so we ended up bring ing some of the dinner home with us. We didnt really get an explanation of why it took so long. The place was busy and our waitress justwell, I guess she didnt have time to explain. This has been a pretty busy week over all, and our various errands have taken up a lot of time. Weve barely had time to relax. We missed both nights of American Idol, which usually is our down time. Even our dog, Peanut, didnt get the chance to sit on his mommys lap and watch TV two things he loves. I once had a job where my boss actually ordered me to take a time management course. Im not sure I retained much from that class. But one thing is certain. If you dont get the hang of time management, you could end up needing to take anger management.

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 HeizerTHOUGHTS FROM THE PUBLISHER EDITORIALS & LETTERS East/West Boca Raton, FL By Dr. Synesio Lyra, Jr.POSITIVE LIVING Home Intensive CareMany years ago I came across an unusual response given to a Real Estate agent. After approaching someone he considered as a potential house buyer, the latter responded in this unique fashion: Why buy a home? I was born in a hospital, reared in a boarding school, educated in College, courted in an automobile, and married in a church. I get my meals in a cafeteria, live in an apartment, spend my mornings playing golf, my afternoons playing bridge; in the evenings we dance or go to the movies; when Im sick I go to a hospital, and when I die I shall be buried from an undertakers parlor. Who needs a home? All we need is a garage with a bedroom. Sadly, today the confusion is even greater with regard to the real meaning of a home. People tend to confuse the physical structure of a house with an actual home. Yet homes are built differently, not merely with bricks, stones, or wood. They cannot be bought with money, but must be developed with love! A home can and should be a haven of rest against all the blows life inflicts on every member of the human race! For some home, unfortunately, is just where you park your car at a days end, or where you take a shower, change your clothes, and sleep at night. Nevertheless, it surpasses all of that and more; its not the locale where you hang your hat. Home is where you hang your heart, making it available to all fellow family members who dwell therein, as well as for those who become the objects of its hospitality! Author Nicholas Boothman concluded, from his research, that people who connect live longer; people who connect get cooperation; and people who connect feel safe and strong. The home is the best human agency to accomplish that, both for its inhabitants and for those it invites in! All facets of mutual caring at home must be accomplished not out of compulsion, or a mere sense of duty, but responsibly, with joy and intensity. The intensive care provided at home will always have a continuing, impacting echo in society. It must consistently contribute to making our world a better place to live. The great challenge to individuals and families is the fact that such intensive care is not to be momentary, nor temporary, as in a hospital. It is a daily expression of genuine love from child to parent, from sibling to sibling, from wife to husband, and vice versa. This occurs by word and deed! What a revolutionary difference that can make when thus prac ticed in a consistent way! American poet, Robert Frost, recorded his immortal assessment of this issue when he wrote: Home is the place where, when you have to go there, they have to take you in. What Can You Do?With the Boca Raton City Elections coming up around the corner, we at our office have been getting swamped with calls, emails, and even letters from citizens accusing both can didates of things they have done wrong and boasting of the things they have done right. When we get these emails and calls we just think to ourselves about that bible verse in John 8:7 when Jesus is being asked by the Pharisees about what they should do with the woman that was caught in the act of adultery. Jesus simply looked at them and said He who is without sin cast the first stone. That goes for elections as well. We all know no one is perfect, we are all humans and we all make mistakes. Personally we dont believe in the tactic of campaigning when both sides simply accuse the other of things. And honestly, we think everyone is Just look at the news or listen to the Republican Primaries, the only thing the candidates are doing is attacking one another, telling the media what the other has done wrong. But, the one thing that everyone seems to be failing to do is say what they can ac tually do. We at the Boca Ra ton Tribune dont take any responsibility for anything our paid advertiser put on their advertisements. We are on our 89th edition of the paper and we have not once picked a side, we give you the unbi ased news. If you can remember back during the 2010 elections, we had the Republicans one week in the paper, then the next we had the Democrats. We have always given both sides of the sto ry and we wont begin to pick sides now. There is already so much bad news in the world, and so our editorials are always trying to give the best side of the news. We wish both Antho ny Majhess and Frank Chapman good luck with their campaigns, may the best man win. Next week, we will have an interview with both candidates on their plans as to what they would do if they are elected to the City Council. Stay Tuned. 561-208-6029

Let them know you saw their Ads in the Boca Tribune.By Skip Sheffield Sharon Lee Parker knows about matters of life and death. When she was diagnosed with two kinds of cancer and a brain tumor ten years ago she refused to accept a death sentence. She lived to write about her miraculous recovery in the book Look Out Cancer, Here I Come, now in its third printing. She has been an inspiration to more than 1,000 cancer survivors as their coach. When this Boca Ra ton grandmother of four learned her favorite fine American ceramic company, Boehm Porcelain, was being threatened with closure she pooled her resources and bought the 60-year-old Trenton, New Jersey company. I walked into the fac tory three years ago to buy a Hope Rose, and people were crying, she recounts. Americas finest art porcelain company was either closing or production would be outsourced overseas. I felt this cannot happen to this American legacy. There were no heirs interested in continuing the company, so I assumed the debt and we kept the doors open. Boehm (pronounced beam) was founded in 1949 by sculptor Edward Marshall Boehm and his wife Helen. Boehm Porcelain rapidly became foremost among the finest art porcelain in the world, with uncanny delicate detail and texture of flowers and natural objects. E.M. Boehm died in 1969, but Helen Boehm soldiered on as the face of Boehm Porcelain, with a staff of fine artists designing new pieces fired in giant specially-made kilns in Trenton. Helen Boehm was a longtime winter resident of Florida. As an avid collec tor, Sharon Lee Parker became a close personal friend of Mrs. Boehm. I used to visit her in her apartment in the Trump Tower in West Palm Beach, Parker reveals. She got cancer and died a year ago this February. I attended her wake in Palm Beach and her funeral in New Jersey. As the new face of Boehm Porcelain, Parker realized she had big shoes to fill. She was more than up to the task. Sharon Lee Parker travels America and the world as the number-one promoter of Boehm Porcelain and American hand-crafted art. I feel I have a very honorable tradition to uphold, declares Parker. Every President since Eisenhower has been presented Boehm Porcelain. I personally presented President Obama with a Boehm American Eagle. I considered it a finest hour when I presented a Boehm to Pope Benedict this summer. E.M. Boehm is so highly regard by the Vatican in 1992 a wing of the Vatican Museums was named in his honor; the first time in 500 years an American was so honored. Prince Charles is a Boehm collector. So is his mother HRH Elizabeth II. When William and Kate were married, Parker gifted them with a Boehm. Locally Boehm art is available at Best Wishes in Fifth Avenue Shops. Parker often has pieces commissioned for charitable causes. The Hope Rose and Life Lover Lily benefit Parkers favorite cause, cancer research and her Life lover Foundation. Currently artists are designing a one-off piece to benefit Boca Ballet. No two pieces are exactly alike, Parker reveals. Sure, people can buy ceramic objects cheaper at K-mart or Wal-Mart, but Boehm is real hand-crafted art. Boehms are like adult toys. There once were hundreds of American fine art porcelain companies. Boehm is the last one. We can do it. We have the talent. I guess Im having a love affair with America. Sharon Lee Parker can be reached personally at:Sharon@boehmporcelain.com.

The starring role in this classic musical has been on Carbonell Award-winning actress Margot Morelands wish list for a long time. Playing Charity Hope Valentine is a dream come true, a role I have loved from afar and never thought Id get the chance to play, Moreland says. She is sweet, hopeful, feisty, charming, complex and vulnerable while on her quest for love. I am so excited to be a part of this show, Moreland says. It has a funny and heart-warming book by Neil Simon, fabulous music written by Cy Coleman, hysterical and poignant lyrics from Dorothy Fields, and its all being molded together by the extraordinary vision of our director, Keith Garsson. Jeffrey Bruce, who plays Charitys principal love interest, Oscar Lindquist, is equally enthusiastic about the production: Its so exciting to be doing Sweet Charity at this time Im very proud to be part of the BRTGs continuing transition from community to professional theatre. Bruce says. And the chance to play opposite my friend of many years, Margot Moreland, is just wonderful. We were always touring one place or another and never had the opportunity. The Boca Raton Theatre Guild has given us this chance and I couldnt have asked for more. Margot gives 150 percent and makes the process so easy for the entire cast. I play her boyfriend, Oscar, and for me, well, its about time! Both Margot and I are nontraditional casting for the roles and I think we both bring new insights to our characters. Performances are: Wednesday Saturday at 8 p.m., and Saturdays and Sundays at 2 p.m. The Willow Theatre in Sugar Sand Park is located at 300 South Military Trail in Boca Raton, just south of Palmetto Park Road. Tickets are $20 and are on sale now. Tickets can be purchased at the Willow Theatre Box office: 561-3473948.

Jeffery Bruce, Margot MorelandDrake Takes Crowd to Club Paradise By: Pedro Heizer Tickets to the much anticipated Club Paradise Tour were on high demand as the Toronto rhymers tour hit Tallahassee this past weekend. The only thing you could hear around the city entire weekend was about the Club Paradise Tour. As I sat at a Chilis restaurant before the concert, I began talking to Jennifer Capa nado, a fan of Drake since the days when he stared as the basketball-playing, wheelchair-bound Jimmy Brooks on the Canadian teen drama Degrassi: The Next Genera tion. This has been the big gest thing to hit Tallahassee in a long time, she told me My friends and I have been waiting for this stop on the tour since he announced it. Drake didnt do it alone, joining him on stage were up and comers Kendrick Lamar, A$SAP Rocky, and Chase N Cashe. Up first in to the stage was Chase N Cashe. The New Orleans rapper took stage and preformed songs out of his latest mixtape, The Heir Up There. Following Chase N Cashe was Harlems own A$AP Rocky and his crew. A$ASP preformed some of his most popular songs which included Pretty Flocko, Peso, Purple Swag, and Trilla. Kendrick Lamar was up next and although he had a quick show, it was very good in its own right. Kendrick came on after Chase N Cashe and A$AP Rocky and preformed his hitsHol Up, ADHA, P&P 1.5, She Needs Me, and HiiiPower. After a 15 minute wait, Drake himself took stage with a standing ovation by the sellout crowd. Drake opened the concert with his song Lord Knows which sounded fantastic with the live instrumentals. The instrumentals, to me, were what made the show go to a different level. There is so much talk nowadays that going to a rap concert is a waste of money because they rapper isnt nowhere near as good live as he is in the record. Well, Drake proved that statement to be false. Unlike most rap concert where there is only a DJ and the rapper simply raps over his song, Drake had a live band with him and that made the difference between an average rap concert and a rap concert that will be talked about for months to come. Drake played most of his hits, songs like Im On One, Crew Love, Shot For Me, Forever, Marvins Room, Take Care, Miss Me, Make Me Proud, HYFR and Headlines were some of the songs the Toronto superstar performed to a sellout crowd. Drakes stage presence was undeniable, the rapper was so comfortable up there and it showed. Drake may rap that all he cares about is money and the city that hes from, but his fans also hold a special place in his heart. Halfway through the show, Drake stops the music and thanks his fans Without you guys, I wouldnt be doing what Im doing. Thank You, he said. He proceeded to go from the right side of the stage to the left, and the center and pointed out some fans screaming his name. Not only that, but instead of having his tour on bigger venues and getting more money, he decided to play in college arenas around the country. I fought for this tour, I fought really hard for this tour because, of course, they want me to go get the big bucks, go into the stadiums and cash out, Drake revealed about the decision to play more intimate shows. But I was just like, I really made this album for the same people that supported me since day one. Drake closed the show with his hit Headlines and once he was done, he went to the center of stage and talked about how he will be unlike all the other rappers that have two or three albums and fall off the face of the planet. I promise you this, I will rap until the day I cant anymore.

Unanimously, we were thrilled with the current menu there was a parade of the best tasting foods weve experienced. While the standard menu changes seasonally, each day it is supplemented by a different list of specials. Each item is less than 475 calories a very welcome concept yet the dishes ingredients create flavors that belie their diet-oriented concept. 5 flatbread offerings on the menu and another as a daily special were sampled thin, thin flatbread with steak+cremini mushrooms and another with portobella mushrooms were tasted then devored rapidly as their toppings were perfection. 10 appetizers listed include a gentle vegetable soup and a really fine chicken tortilla soup with a fair degree of spice. We had goat cheese ravioli-soft pillows oozing melted cheesesimmered in organic tomato broth for a superb taste. Jumbo tiger shrimp, chilled with both homemade cocktail sauce and a delightful homemade mustard sauce was a fine dish as well. They offer Prince Edward Island musselsdainty bivalves steamed in a zesty marinara sauce for a smooth tasting treat. Then we had as very, very spicy chicken chile releno with sun dried tomatoes, goat cheese and spinach on pico de gallothe heat lingers! Listed are 5 small salads and 5 entre salads. Fresh organic tomato stacked slices were interwoven with blue cheese, chopped bacon and arugula with a balsamic glazejuicy and tasty. The Kalymnos Greek salad with feta, cucumber, tomatoes, sliced red onions and Kalamata olives was as fine as one could have at a true Greek restaurant. A baby spinach salad was completed with sliced pears, toasted pine nuts and gorgonzola cheese while the farmers market vegetable plate included roasted bosc pear, butternut squash and truly fine grilled tofu plus a timbale of almond tabbouleh. Of the 5 listings of Fish and Seafood, we had an amazing grilled boneless trout served with parsley new potatoes, baby carrots and asparagus. The flavor was perfect! Sea scallops caramelized and the grilled arrived with roasted asparagus and tomato/mushroom pearl pasta-a delight! We had never experienced roasted artichoke stuffed shrimp until now and we applaud it, together with its wilted leaf spinach, pasta pearls and great clam cioppino sauce. Well try the planked roasted salmon and shrimp pasta next time. Turning to their heading of Poultry and Meat, we ordered lamb T-bone chops, done medium and were rewarded with fine tasting lamb with a great red wine glaze and with asparagus and dainty truffle mashed potatoes. An all-natural chicken was served with a rich cabernet sauce, veg etables and organic wild rice real chicken taste coming through! This sec tion also features wood roasted pork tenderloin, oak grilled filet mignon and grilled venison chop with a mushroom ragoutthis for us at a future sitting. In keeping with the under 475 calorie concept, desserts are small in size but rich in flavor and there are 8 of these miniindulgences to select from. They are artful combina tions of sweets that you will find as a fitting conclusion to fine dining.

Some things we do take dayshours.weeks, even months, to help us appear younger looking. Then there are some things we go out of our way to do that make us look older. Heres how to correct them: 1. An Oily or Shiny Face A shiny face actually makes the face look older because the shine plays up the wrinkles and lines on the faceoil or shine exaggerates them. Here is the answer Powder down to blend makeup colors and take off the shine. TRY THIS TEST: Before applying powder, stand sideways to a window while looking in a mirror and study your facethe lines will be more exaggerated. Now apply powder. Return to the window with the mirror to see the difference. 2. Iridescent or Bright Color Eye Shadow Dont forget that manufactures are there to sell you have to pick and choose what flatters your face. Here is the answer. Remember, your eyes should steal the shownot the eye shadow. Here are some simple rules: 1. Wear more natural colors. My favorite is a soft offwhite or light tone eye shadow on the lids and a brown or gray shade above the lids and a little above the eye bone The off-white mostly blends into the eyelid skin after a short time to give a natural look 3. Purple, Black or Orange Lipstick These colors can be aging and distracting to the face in most cases. Here is the answer Maybe a soft orange is OK to fit a special garment color, but use a soft color orange if you mustone with a little brown tone in it make sure your rouge color blends with the lipstick tone. Red should have a little blue color in it so it does not look orange. 4. Dull, Dry Hair Even if you have bleached or tinted hair, straightened hair or sun dried hair there are products on the market to get your hair back into shape. Dull, dry hair gives an older look to your overall appearance. Heres the answer Apply a good Conditioner on hair and cover with a plastic cap then wrap towel around your head to hold the heat in. You can also apply a gloss on the hair after washing and drying it this is a clear very light oil to make hair shine. You will love the more youthful and flattering look. 5. No eye make-up Going without eye makeup is fine if that is the look you like. But we look more youthful with at least a little eye makeup. It gives an alive look to our face as well as making us appear more glamorous. Heres the answer Click on www.oleda.com/ makeupschool/ to Oleda Makeup School where you will see easy instructions on not only for eye makeup but for makeup in general. Youll also find 10 Real People Makeovers Before and After Step by Step. 6. No Rouge, Too Little Rouge or Putting It In The Wrong Place Well here is one of my problems Often I worry about having too much rouge, or not enough. I often ask my husband to take a look before going out. Sometimes I have to go back and tone it down! Another rouge problem is WHERE to apply it. Heres the answer When using rouge, apply it where the sun would make your face naturally rosy--except for the nose, of course-across the cheekbones, somewhat over and under them and tapered off toward the ears. Apply ever-so-little to the top of the forehead and up to the hairline blending so it is hardly noticeable. (Add a bit of color to your neck to make it look like it belongs to your face. See http://www.oleda.com/makeupschool/ for more instruc tions. 7. Poor Posture Ages you Never underestimate the beauty and health benefits, of good posture. Often poor posture is just a bad habit that is easily corrected. Poor posture not only makes you look older, but could be the first step toward dowagers hump, double chin, potbelly, and swayback as well as some internal problems too. Heres the answer To correct poor posture we must be aware of our posture all of our waking hours for a few days or weeks. Make a point to stand straight with shoulders backchin up not down for a more youthful look! Ask your best friend, your kids or husband to keep an eye on your posture and to let you know when you are not standing straight. This can help you get out of a bad habit. Dont forget good posture when you are sitting for the very same reasons. Until next time, Love, OledaBig Miracle is based on a real-life incident in 1988.

What started out as a little local news story grew and blossomed into an international sensation which ultimately brought together the USA and the Soviet Union in a joint effort to free the whales. Big Miracle is a fictionalized version of Tom Roses 1989 book, Freeing the Whales. The trailer I first saw looked a bit hokey and corny, but darned if this determinably feel-good movie takes hold and lures the viewer into an idealist realm where adversaries can put aside their differences and cooperate on a mutual goal for the common good. There has already been some criticism that Big Miracle reduces the important role the native Inuit Eskimos played in what was called Operation Breakthrough, while maximizing the role of Caucasians. From a Hollywood and a political point of view I understand why it was done. This movie is the first one subsidized to the tune of one-third the $30 million budget by the State of Alaska. As such it is kind of an advertisement for the state. In a way it reminded me of the musical Oklahoma! where ultimately the cowboy and the farmer can be friends. Big Miracle stars Drew Barrymore as Ra chel Kramer, ardent environmentalist and head of Greenpeace up in the Arctic Circle. The charac ter is based on the real-life Greenpeace activist Cindy Lowry. John Krasinski plays Adam Carlson, Rachels ex-boyfriend who works as a television reporter at the tiny Barrow station. Adam Carlson is a composite character who represents the reporters who became interested in the story and saw its potential as a na tional cause. It also gives the story some romantic tension when an ambitious Los Angeles television reporter, Jill Gerard (Kristin Bell) flies to Alaska to cover the story. Adam cant help noticing. The Polar adversary of Rachel Kramer is Liam Peterson (Ted Danson), the combative oilman who wants to drill in the pristine wilderness and could use some good public relations. In truth Big Miracle is more about politics and media influence than it is about whales. Each of the disparate characters sees the do-gooder mission of rescuing the whales as a means to promote his or her cause. National Guard commander Tom Carroll (Dermot Mulroney) originally thinks its a risky, foolish mission. Governor Haskell (Stephen Root) sees no political benefit. The native Eskimos fear being typed as bad guys because they still hunt certain whales for sustenance. Director Ken Kwapis keeps cutting back and forth to the poor whales (actually robotic figures) and the bickering, struggling humans as the clock ticks on toward a deep freeze. Ultimately it is up to Ronnie Reagan to put aside political differences and call his pal Gorby Gorbachev, and say hey, can you Russkies sent that big ice-breaker our way? Sure it is hokey, contrived and distanced from reality, but when you think about it, Operation Breakthrough was the first sign of thaw between two superpowers capable of annihilating the planet. Now that is feel-good. Three stars ENTERTAINMENT Can whales save the world? If you see Big Miracle, you may think so. Seven Beauty Tips That Can Instantly Make Us Look Younger.

When the teller looked up, the suspect was holding a handwritten note which stated, Give me $40,000, no dye pack and no alarm. As the teller glanced to her left, the suspect said you pulled the alarm. He ran out of the bank through the north door, without any cash.

The 12-year-old victim told officers her school bus dropped her off near the Salvation Army at 300 SW 2nd Avenue about 4:40 p.m. As she walked south on 2nd Avenue toward her grandmothers house, she noticed a newer model white van driving slowly behind her. Police said that when she arrived at her grandmothers house, no one answered the door, so she walked to a friends house on SW 2nd Avenue. As she approached the apartment building, police said, she saw that the van was parked on the swale facing south on the east side of the road. The victim avoided the van and went to her friends apartment, but no one was home. As she sat on the building steps on the north side of the building texting a friend, the driver of the van approached her. The male asked the victim her name, but she was scared and walked away without answering him. Police said the suspect followed her, then got in front of her and screamed, Why wont you answer me? The suspect grabbed the victims cell phone and threw it on the ground causing it to break. The victim told officers she was very frightened and ran to another friends house where she called police.

As part of that effort, Subway of South Florida has launched an initiative that may move a current site to a better location nearby. Thats creating great opportunities for property owners and landlords, especially those who may have space in non-traditional locations, such as a hospital, a museum, an office building or a potential drive-through location. In addition, as part of an upscale modernization effort, the first Subway Caf in South Florida is scheduled to open this month on the Florida At lantic University campus. Subway Cafs have more of a coffeehouse ambiance, offering additional menu items such as Seattles Best Coffee, baked goods and dessert items and a full line of espresso-based cof fee specialty drinks. The restaurant chain is also updating its existing and new restaurants with its innovative Metro design. Larry Feldman, a Subway development agent who owns more than 1,450 Subways and is expanding in the Bro ward and Palm Beach counties and up through the Treasure Coast, said landlords sign leases with Subway, not franchisees, providing them with a greater level of security. In addition, property owners find that having the Subway brand on their property helps lease their remaining spaces.

Rain Cant Stop the Giving HeartLocal nonprofit organization, Stand Among Friends, held its second annual emb(race) event this past Sunday on Florida Atlantic Universitys campus in Boca Raton. Founded in 1997 Stand Among Friends (SAF) provides career and employment assistance for the disabled community, allowing them to live an independent and fulfilling life. SAF Founder Shawn Friedkin started the nonprofit after suffering a horrific accident in which he became paralyzed and wheelchair bound at 28 years old, discovering there were very few resources for people in his situation. Now many years later, the organization is able to provide services to over 600 disabled locals annually thanks to fundraising efforts like the emb(race) event, their biggest of the year. This years event saw a crowd of over 1,500 which included wellknown dignitaries such as US Congressmen Allen West and Ted Deutch, Boca Raton City Council Member Constance Scott, Vice Mayor of Boca Ra ton Susan Haynie, FAU President MJ Saunders, and some local famous fac esChristine Lynn, NBC Channel 5s Keli Fulton, FOX 29s Rachel Leigh, and Olympic Gold Medalist Boxer Howard Davis Jr. Over 1,000 attendees ran, walked, strolled, or rolled in wheelchairs and hand-cycles in one or more of the days events, which included a 10K, 5K and one mile family fun walk. Touted as the all inclusive race, the emb(race) event welcomed those with any type of disability. A little rain and windy weather didnt stop more than 200 volunteers from showing up before sunrise to help kickoff the event. Over 135,000 dollars was raised, far exceeding the organizations monetary goal and nearly doubling last years amount of 72,000 dollars. The orga nization recognized Rob Coffino of Inifinty Sales Group, who singlehandedly raised almost twelve thousand dollars by recruiting a team of 122 people.

Bernard Featherman is a columnist for the Boca Raton Tribune and is also the mayor of Highland Beach. By Mayor Bernard FeathermanTHE CORNER OFFICE Mottos to Live ByThree mottos on the walls of my high school study hall have been a great source of inspiration in guiding me throughout life. The first motto on the left wall read: Good, better, best Never, ever rest Until your good is better, And your better is best. In essence, it means that each person should strive to do the very best they can, not only in their private and working lives, but even into retirement. Its that extra effort that makes better into best. Everyone should try to reach for goals beyond their grasp. It is an awesome feeling when one can accomplish the unexpected that others think cant be done. Knowledge is power is the second motto over the entrance door to the study hall. Things are changing so rapidly that what happened a decade ago seems like the Dark Ages today. You must continue lifelong learning, from the cra dle into retirement, in order to keep on the cutting edge of change and to acquire the new knowledge it brings. For those who have not read Tom Friedmans book The World is Flat, let me share this example. Small and large CPA accounting firms in America send their clients tax forms to foreign countries such as India where they are processed and returned to them the next day. American hospitals sometimes send pa tients x-rays to foreign doctors for professional interpretation which is done overnight and returned the next morning. Many of these doctors and accountants have had American educations. Why do they do it? The answer is simple. When our workday ends after daylight hours, in places like India daylight hours begin. When it is 7 a.m. here in America, it is 7 p.m. there. Many foreign workers go to universities for MBAs and advanced engineering degrees during their morning hours and work in the evenings after 7 p.m. Also, many of these college graduate students come to America to get advanced degrees and then return to their country to get better jobs. Pretty cool dudes. In call centers, Indias workers take speech lessons to eliminate their ac cents. They take American names so people in America dont feel they are talking to a person thousands of miles away, in a foreign country. These special afterhour workers are paid over $100 a week, considered a premium wage, while most general labor workers in India receive around $100 per month. But beware. In the next decade, countries such as India could replace a ma jority of jobs in America, especially small businesses as they become educated in job skills here and return to their own country to eventually compete with us. Education is the key to our future. Americans can take major steps to be competitive, to grow our economy and to create more jobs. It should be our first priority, regardless of age; to establish an ongoing lifetime learning process for our youth, baby boomers and persons in retirement. Schools must stress more mathematics, sciences and engineering courses. The Y generation ages 16 to 23, should be encouraged not to drop out of high school. For those not seeking a college education or careers in the military, students should have the opportunity to learn voca tional skills such as plumbing, electrical and carpentry trades, for skilled entry level jobs that can grow into higher paying jobs. The third motto on the opposite wall of the study hall entrance is a simple six letter word OTHERS -but is the most important motto of them all. We must learn to network with others, and develop meaning ful friendships and collaborations. We need to share common values and goals by becoming involved in charitable and non-profit organizations, schools, church and temple groups. By doing so, volunteer services to others will help in many ways to build a network of friends, acquaintances and references, especially in difficult economic times like today. It can be your ticket to helping yourself, too. When you help others, you generally help yourself, by getting much more back than you give. It is important to take the time to think about these mottos. Most of you have already put them to use. For those who havent, its never too late to start.

Gora has been certified by the Board of Specialization 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 at mailto:mhgora@ sbwlawfirm.com. The Price of GasThe price of gasoline at the pump used to be the product of market forces: that is supply and demand. The present rise in the price of gaso line at the pump is being driven by the wish of the oil industry to defeat the re-election of President Obama while increasing their profits. From the supply side there is no real shortage other than that created by the companies and the countries which are con spiring to create higher prices at the pump. First the countries owning the oil like Saudi Arabia decrease the supply, shrinking the availability of crude by agreeing to pump and/ or market less. At the same time the gasoline companies delay availability of refining capac ity by choosing the next few months to retrofit and clean enough refin eries to further squeeze the apparent supply. Late last year the President disclosed that he was considering a push to eliminate subsidies and tax breaks to the oil industry, citing its profitability and virtual monopoly in order to decrease the current cost of government and reduce future deficits. Since that announcement the average price of gasoline has risen from about $3.00 a gallon to about $4.00 a gallon. As those of us who buy gas in Boca Ra ton know our gas prices are even higher. The effect of the rise in the price of gasoline at the pump as it reach es and exceeds $4.00 a gallon at the pump and heads for $5.00 hurts each and every person in this country who drives a car, takes public transportation, buys food delivered to a supermarket by truck, eats food produced on petroleum fired equipment from tractors to fishing and scrimping boats, or buys anything in every retail outlet. As retail sales wane so will wholesale sales caus ing the value of shares of stock in U.S. corporations such as General Motors, General Electric, Disney and the rest, except for the oil compa nies. By the day before the November election andt $5.00 a gallon gas ap pears on those really big signs at each gas station, and a tank of gas in an averages sized citizens auto reaches $100.00 people who can afford it will be really ticked off, and people who cannot will not be able to get to work or buy food. These people harmed will be members of both political parties and at every level of the economy. When $5.00 gas happens the buck will stop, as it always does, at the Presidents desk and the manipulators will have won an election by hurting all of us, Republicans and Democrats alike. This President will have no ability to prevent this attack on the good and welfare of his fellow citizens, but will be blamed for it.What Constitutes a Real Winner?In every area of life, whether in the world of sports, the workplace, or in recreational activities, we enjoy the experience of being a winner. Winning an important contract, earning a well-deserved promotion, or receiving a significant pay raise all can bring us much happiness and fulfillment as business and professional people. As spectators, we still feel like winners when our favorite sports team triumphs over its greatest rival. Many of us, even when playing casual games at home with family and friends, strive to be the winner. But is that what being a winner truly means? Could it be that there is something more to winning than prevailing over a competitor, or scoring more points than your opponent does? Here are some thoughts about what a true winner is: A winner respects those who are superior to him and tries to learn something from them; A loser resents those who are superior and rationalizes their achievements. A winner explains; A loser explains away, making excuses. A winner says, We must find a way; A loser says, There is no way. A winner goes through a problem, working toward a solution; A loser tries to go around a problem, seeking to avoid it entirely. A winner says, There should be a better way to do it; A loser says, Thats the way it has always been done here. A winner shows he is sorry by making amends for it; A loser says Im sorry, but repeats the same offense the next time. A winner knows what to fight for and what to compromise on; A loser compromises on what he should not, and fights for what is not worth fighting for. A winner works harder than a loser, and has more time; A loser is always too busy to do what is necessary. A winner is not afraid of losing; A loser is secretly afraid of winning. A winner makes and honors commitments; A loser makes promises but then ig nores them. The Bible also offers some challenging thoughts about winning and losing. For instance, the apostle Paul wrote about the importance of becoming prepared to achieve victory: Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one gets the prize? Run in such a way as to get the prize (1 Corinthians 9:24). In another passage, Jesus warned about the risk of losing even if you win: For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?(Mark 8:36). Based on the thoughts above, which are you a winner or a loser? 2012, Purpose Driven Life. All rights reserved.

FAU had the bases loaded with no outs in the bottom of the fifth, but MSU managed to get out of the inning without a run crossing the plate. Taylor Fawbush led off the seventh with a base hit down the line in left, then Stephanie Call reached and Fawbush advanced to third on another Spartan error and Call gave way to pinch runner Sara Rotunno. After a Laura Mann popup, Michigan State was able to pick Fawbush off of third for the second out of the inning. Jordan Stovall pinch hit for Quincy Wilson and popped a ball up to the shortstop in the shallow left field grass. However, the shortstop was unable to make and Rotunno scored from sec ond on the play, giving the Owls the win. Paige Pender scattered seven hits for her second win of the season.

Marianne Johnson also had a solid game with a 2-for-4 day and a .667 on base percentage.

The Fighting Knights continued to battle and put their first run on the board after Johnson walked and moved to second on a Van Casteren groundout then scored on a Kaci Vassallo two-out RBI single to centerfield.

More Running for Morris? By Chuck King After failing to run the 4.5 40-yard dash he was hoping for at this past weekends NFL Scouting Combine, FAU running back Alfred Morris might choose to try again at FAUs March 19 Pro Day. Prior to heading to the Combine, Morris had said he would only participate in position drills at FAUs Pro Day. Im reconsidering. Well see what happens, Morris said. Its a maybe right now. FAUs all-time leading rusher, Morris led the Owls with 1,186 yards and nine touchdowns in 2011. While some insist Morris will be a fullback at the next level, Morris said teams are talking to him about being a tailback. The biggest question mark about Morris measurables has been his speed. At last years Junior Day Morris was struggling with a sore back when he ran a 4.77. Heading into the combine Morris said he had a goal of 4.5, but he managed only times in the 4.65 range in Indianapolis. My start was not good both of them and it hurt me, Morris said. I think I did well [overall]. I wasnt disappointed, but I wanted my 40 to be a lot better. Morris previous 40 time doesnt seem to have caused many teams to lose interest. Morris said he talked with representatives from at least 20 teams while in Indianapolis prior to running. The Bengals sent the largest contingent, including head coach Marvin Lewis. They seemed very interested in me, Morris said. I think the meeting went very well. I was impressed with them and I think they were impressed with me. After training for the combine in Bradenton over the past couple months, Morris said he intends to take rest his legs for a few days before getting back to work. He called the combine a great experience. While Morris 40 time wasnt what he was looking for, he fared better in the shuttle, 60-yard dash and cone, according to FootballsFuture.coms stats. Im happy with all my numbers, Morris said. I didnt do bad or stink it up. Everything was comparable with the guys who were there. When they look at my film they will see the kind of player I am.

The Owls cap tured the series by winning three of the four games against the Jas pers, the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference defending champions and a NCAA regional qualifier last season. We need to be ready to play and be better offensively early in games, said John McCormack, FAUs head baseball coach. Manhattan is a good ball club that will win many games this season. We had some scoring chances early in the game and just didnt capitalize on those opportunities. We got the victory and being 6-1 is a good way to start the season. Trailing 2-1 in the seventh inning, a sac rifice fly to center field by senior catcher Mike Albaladejo scored sophomore infielder Robert Buckley to tie the game. Later in the frame, junior designated hitter Corey Keller snuck a ground ball through the right side of the Manhattan infield to plate junior outfielder Nathan Pitt man or the go-ahead run, 3-2. The Owls would not trail again, scoring four runs in the bottom of the eighth inning. Junior infielder Kyle Newton led off the inning with his third home run of the season. Albaladejo would drive in his second run of the game with a single to center field scoring junior first baseman Mark Nelson. Pitt man would help tally two more runs with a double in the next at-bat. Manhattan (1-3) didnt go away easily, scoring one run in the top of the ninth inning and having the potential game-tying run at the plate. Thats when junior right-handed reliever Michael Sylvestri induced a groundball to end the game. Senior outfielder Alex Hudak cut an early 2-0 Manhattan lead in half with a blast over the right field fence -his fourth home run of the season -to lead off the second inning. Junior reliever R.J. Alvarez picked up his second win of the season, tossing 2.2 scoreless innings. He struck out four batters and allowed just two singles. Freshman left hander Austin Gomber struck out four batters over 4.1 innings in his collegiate debut. Senior reliever Ahmed Garcia joined Alvarez and Sylvestri in contributing to the victory from the Owls quality bullpen. Albaladejo paced the FAU offensive attack with three hits, marking the fourth time this season he has recorded three or more hits in a game. The senior is now batting a team-best .536 for the season. Nelson also tallied three hits with a run scored. The team pounded out 12 hits in the series-ending victory. Manhattan was led by Nick Camastro and Ra mon Ortega, with both collecting hits. Camastro drove in two runs with a double in the second inning. The Owls outscored the Jaspers 29-15 in the four-game set which opened the teams home schedule. FAU returns to the diamond on Wednesday, February 29, at 6 p.m. with a South Florida showdown with nationally ranked University of Miami from Coral Ga bles. The meeting will be the first of three scheduled games this season between the rivals. The Owls won the season series from the Hurricanes last year, winning the final game at the Hurricanes home ballpark.By: Matt Pineda Norris Cole was a late add-in to the BBVA Rising Stars Challenge for the Rookie-Sophomore game only to get Jeremy Lin in the game. Team Shaq picked him, along with 4 other point guards, but they were happy they did. Cole shined in the first half, scoring 9 points with a three-pointer on his first shot. Kenny Smith referred to him as just getting buckets and praised the young rookie for his game. Coles game isnt a whole lot of flash and doesnt exactly fit great in an all-star type game like this, but he fet in pretty well. Cole was able to work off the ball and get into the lane, but it was clear he didnt have the flash like Rubio, Wall, and Kyrie. Despite Coles 9 points (4-7 FG, 2 assists, 2 steals), Team Shaq trailed Team Chuck at halftime by 12. In the second half, Team Chuck took more control and extended their lead all the way to 21. They lead by double figures for most of the half. Cole had a few more buckets, and dropped some more assists on his way. Norris had an interview earlier in the night where he said Wade and LeBron told him to just play his game. And as Cole seemed to do that early, after he got his layup blocked by John Wall in the first half, he didnt go inside much again. Cole jacked up way more 3-pointers than he probably does in prac tice. He didnt play his game, which was unfortunate, but he still got a lot of run and looked good. Cole ended the game with 18 points, 5 assists and 4 steals. Team Chuck won the game 146 133. John Wall finished the game with some sick dunks, but it was Kyrie Irving who took home the MVP award with 34 points and 9 assists for Team Chuck. Cole was just the first of several HEAT players to take part in All Star Weekend. Saturday night, Mario Chalmers and James Jones look to test their hand in the 3-point contest, and Wade, James and Bosh took the stage for the All-Star game on Sunday.SPORTS East/West Boca Raton, FL FAU Baseball Improves to 6-1 on the Season Cole Shines in BBVA Rising Stars Challenge
