By Dale M. King BOCA RATON The city has been in the library planning business for nearly a decade. It began with the public adoption in 2003 of a multi-million dollar referendum that put two new libraries on the drawing board for the citys future. It continued with the construction of the Western Library, now known as Spanish River Library, which opened in 2008. It was delayed nearly two years by a legal dispute between the original contractor and the city. Once that building was finished, the city turned its attention to a new downtown facility. But the community has had to deal with serious economic woes in the past four years that forced it to reconfigure the facility. This is the day the shovels have arrived, Mayor Susan Whelchel said Tuesday, April 24, when groundbreaking was conducted in the middle of a large field where the new library will stand. The building, to be located on NW Second Avenue about two blocks north of the existing for news 24/7 go to bocaratontribune.comThe Boca Raton Tribune YOUR CLOSEST NEIGHBOR.Nearly 400,000 readers!

Lynn Library, recently developed a research guide specific to presidential debates in anticipation of Lynn University hosting the third and final presidential debate on Oct. 22. When Academic Vice President Gregg Cox encouraged the faculty to include lessons about the debates in their spring and fall classes, creating a debate research guide seemed like a great way the library could contribute to the debate fever on campus, said Barnett who has produced scores of online research guides to support Lynns curriculum. Lynn students studying political science, history, sociology and/or communication will be among those who use the guides over the next few months. Although most of the articles and ebooks are from proprietary databases restricted to the Lynn community, the guide allows anyone from the public to access all the past debate videos in one place. Excluding the 1980 debate between Ronald Regan and the independent candidate, John Anderson, that President Carter boycotted, the guide includes footage of every televised presidential debate from 1960, 1976-2008. Its important to put this years debates in context of past debates, said Barnett. The materials will give great insight. In fact, students in a Media and Society course are currently using the resources to write an essay on Reflections and Expectations of the 2012 Debate at Lynn University. Barnett has worked at Lynns library for more than 15 years, serving her last six years as a reference and instruction librarian. She earned both her undergraduate and graduate degrees in history.

The event started at 7 p.m. and ended at 9 p.m. with over five hundred people present. Pathway to the Stars was presented by 98-year-old Flossy Keesely a philanthropist who has maintained a long-standing interest for helping people. Ms. Keesely is dedicated to raising scholarship funds to assist students in pursuing a degree in production, television and communications at Lynn University. I love to see young people get the opportunity to show their talent, said Keesely. The theme of the concert was past, present, and future. Therefore, talents from various generations were displayed from young children to performers in their 80s. Entertainers included: Broadway Ziegfeld Entertainers, Mark and Rio, Francois Szony and Donna Shelley, Doug Crosley, Baritone, Betsy Wickward, Florida Follies, The Vogans, Reima Sang,Margo Joy, Soprano, Brett Loewenstern, Briana Kahane, Megan Saslo, Lizzie Sider, Melanie Sierra, and Boca Boys Music is a release to me, said American Idol finalist Brett Loewenstern. Loewenstern says that regardless of having 10 or ten million fans, as long as your message is heard thats all that matters. His message is to be yourself. Love yourself. When you are blessed with a gift you should share it with the world, said Loewenstern. Pianist Reima Sang says that a song with a positive message needs to be heard. Originally from China Town, NY Sang began playing the piano at age 7. She is also a private coach and teacher for students with special needs at Miami Dade College. The world is a better place because of music and the arts, said Sang. For guitarist Lukas of Boca Boys, Pathway to the Stars was his first live on-stage performance. I want to play for a better world, said guitarist Lukas of Boca Boys. I want to express the message of peace and love. For me, to play here is a dream, said Lukas. This is a great event supporting a great cause, said Boca Boys drummer Jordan Meyers. Flossy is a philanthropist who is generous and supportive to our community. Singer Doug Crosley also feels that Flossy is generous, compassionate, and charitable. I met Flossy 12 years ago singing with The Zig feld Follies Show, said Crosley. Weve been friends ever since. Crosley performed Oh What a Beautiful Morning, and Surrey With The Fringe on Top. Only the last 10 years did this singer realize what performing truly means. It is a feeling within yourself, said Crosley. I dont know what happens but you realize every note and word you sing is important. The show ended with the entire cast and audience sing ing God Bless America in harmony under a crisp, cloudless, moonlit sky. The show was very entertaining and eclectically different, said 40-year-old spec tator Matoskah Bear. They all had their own something special. Were very thankful for the generous work Flossy contributes, said special events coordinator Becky Self. Flossy is truly sincere and sweet in everything she does. She brings the community together and makes it a better place.library, should be finished a year from now, officials said. The new library will be about 40,000 square feet. The city has yet to announce what it will do with the present building adjacent to the police sta tion. Addressing the crowd during the late-afternoon ceremony, Mayor Whelchel noted the multitude of people who have had a hand in this. She said it has been the subject of a vast number of meetings. I dont know if anything has been vetted as much as this library. She said the structure will be a landmark building in Boca Raton. Also speaking at the ceremony were Recreation Director Mickey Gomez, Friends of the Library President Susan Sosin, Library Advisory Board chair Kate Greene, Mike Kaufman, of Kaufman Lynn Construction and Douglas Mummaw, president of the Rotary Club of Boca Raton The architectural firm PGAL has designed the building and interior. Kaufman Lynn which completed the Spanish River Library and has built several other buildings in the city will handle construction. The project is being funded with $10 from the 2003 bond issue. Friends of the Boca Library have also donated $250,000 and the Rotary Club of Boca Raton presented a $50,000 check to create a youth ac tivities center at the new library.The Boca Raton Tribune Community News see pics pg. 16 On Her Birthday, Flossy Keesely gives Boca Raton a Present; 4th Annual Pathway To The Stars Concert a SuccessBoca Raton Breaks Ground for Long-Awaited New Downtown Library Seated are Douglas Mummaw and Mayor Susan Whelchel.

April 24, 2012 Marks 97th Anniversary of the Armenian GenocideBy Cameron McCaffrey The Armenian Genocide was a tragic death campaign carried out by the Turks from the mid-1910s to the early 1920s which led to the eradication of over half of all of the Armenians on the planet at the timeto be precise, the years 1915 and 1916. This event also influenced future generations and played a significant role in a little-known fact: that Adolf Hitler was influenced by this event to carry out his infaamous Holocaust murder spree which led to the decimation of millions, includ ing seventy-five percent of all of the Jews that lived in Europe at the time. Adolf Hitler, Chancellor of Nazi Germany (1933-45), is on record for having said: Who, after all, speaks today of the annihilation of the Armenians? Approximately 1.5 mil lion Armenians perished during the Armenian Genocide, and about 500,000 oth ers were evicted from their ancestral homeland. In this current day and age, the government of Turkey regularly expresses denial of the Armenian Genocide ever having transpired, claiming that Armenian indi viduals merely experienced removal out of the warzone that resided in the East. The primary issue and concern at play here is politics, with some justifying American failure to acknowledge the event by saying that with wars taking place in that part of the world, America could not afford to insult the strongest regional NATO ally. Congress has consistently refused to officially recognize the Armenian Genocide, despite the fact that legislation to do so has been introduced over and over as far back as the 98th Congress (1982-1984) and as recently as the 111th Congress (2009-2010). Today, genocide is also still being attempted in plac es like Somalia, yet receives little attention. For anyone reading this, make no mistakesilence IS complicity, and turning a blind eye does not absolve one from responsibility. History is doomed to continuously repeat itself until the world takes decisive and enduring action. On March 19th of this year, Senators Robert Menendez and Mark Kirk officially introduced a new Armenian Genocide Resolution (S. Res 399), with Senator Menendez stating that it is time for the United States to join the nineteen nations including Belgium, Canada, France, Italy and the European Union that have formally recognized the actions carried out by the Ottoman Empire from 1915 to 1923 as genocide. Senator Kirk was quoted as saying that the Armenian Genocide is welldocumented and formally recognized by 11 NATO allies and the European Union. This resolution accurately characterizes the events of 1915-1923 as genocide, honors the memory of the victims, and strengthens Americas moral leadership on human rights and the prevention of mass atrocities around the world. Perhaps this time the U.S. will finally do what it should have done so many years ago. Historic Town Hall Named Top Civic Building In AIA CompetitionBy: Guadalupe Monarrez On April 18th, the Florida Chapter of the American Institute of Architects (AIA) named Old Boca Ra ton Town Hall the top civic building in its Florida Ar chitecture: 100 Years, 100 Places competition. Cele brating their 100th anniversary, the online competition gave voters the opportunity to award the top architec tural buildings in the state of Florida. The Fontainebleau Miami Beach received the most votes to win the contest, but members of the AIA also recognized 13 buildings in separate categories, including Old Town Hall. The achievement could not have occurred at a better time for the Boca Ra ton Historical Society & Museum, which is located in the restored Town Hall. The non-profit organization celebrated their 40th anniversary on Thursday, April 26th. We are very excited about receiving the award. Not only is it a source of publicity for the Town Hall and the Historic Society, but it is a source of pride for the community, said Susan Gillis, the curator of the Boca Raton Historical Society. In 1925, Addison Mizner was appointed city planner by the town commission. Mizner had many responsibilities, including the design of Boca Ratons city hall. However, his designs proved to be too costly for the town commission. Delray Beach architect William Alsmeyer completed the design of the building and it was built in 1927. Although Alsmeyer did not use Mizners original designs, the building was constructed using supplies from Mizner Indus tries. Old Town Hall is designed in a Mission Style. The exterior of the two story building features a gold domed bell tower, arched windows and doors, and iron grilles. The iron grilles are reminiscent of the Spanish Style and of Mizners designs. The interior features the original tiles, wood flooring, and gates provided by Mizner Industries. The completion of the hall served many purposes for the community. The police and fire department were located in the building, people payed their taxes here, and it even served as a sanctuary for civilians when hurricanes impacted the area. All civilian activity, including marriages and memorials, oc curred in the building. The space was very functional, acknowledged Gillis of the structures importance. The Historical Society uses the building as a museum to showcase a variety of exhibits. Currently, there are 3 exhibits on display. The Mizner Apartment Collection exhibit contains Addison Mizners antique furnishings and belongings from his Palm Beach home. The Mizner Indus tries/Mizner Style exhibit includes items from Mizner Industries. The Sentimental Journey: Boca Raton During World War II exhibit will be displayed until June 15th. The display contains photographs of the Army Air Corps training base, currently Florida Atlantic Universitys campus. The purpose of AIAs competition was to encourage Floridians to learn about the structures in their communities and their historical value. Gillis mentions, We receive about 25,000 visitors each year. We provide guided tours of all our exhibits in Town Hall, as well as other historic sites and buildings, for anyone who is interested in learning about their history. Old Boca Raton Town Hall is located at 71 North Federal Highway. For more information on guided tours of all historic locations in Boca Raton, call 561-3956766 or visit www.bocahis tory.org.

The council selected two graduating seniors and an adult volunteer to each receive $500 to help offset the cost of their future educational endeavors. Winners were chosen based on an original essay and letters of recommendation. Student applicants wrote essays responding to the prompt Being a PTA member means while adult applicants wrote essays that shared their thoughts about PTAEmpowering Families! Winners were: Larry Harris, a PTSA volunteer as well as a teacher at Omni Middle School in Boca Raton. His passion to inspire students to be educated and healthy generated an idea to train a group of kids for the Palm Beach Half Marathon. The goal: inspire the entire school to exercise and eat better. Together the PTSA and Mr. Harris developed a rigorous training schedule, running routes were varied with the help of a hunted down Garmin GPS watch; the students training was the subject of a local newspaper article, and PTSA parents provided breakfast on long run days. Setutsi Dennis, a senior and active student volunteer at Spanish River High School. He stated, Being a PTSA member means being a part of something much larger than yourself! Setutsis scholarship application shows that she has always been an active student and volunteer at her school from the Step Team to Student Government. However, it wasnt until a PTSA mom casually asked Why havent you joined PTSA? You participate in all our events that she joined PTSA. After two years Setutsi said that by being a member of PTSA, Ive learned by example that doing for the greater good is better than doing for myself. The grandeur of our PTSA is quite humbling and being a part of it really means the world to me The third winner was Wallis Stormont OHagan, a PTSA vicepresident and active senior at Suncoast High School. She shared that being a PTSA means opportunity and she embraced the opportunity to create a learning community that is both constructive and beneficial. The Palm Beach County Council of PTA/PTSA is a member of the largest advocacy group for children in the nation. PTA is comprised of millions of families, students, teachers, administrators, and business and community leaders devoted to the educational success of children and the promotion of parent involvement in schools.

Thank you for your annual show of support. Sincerely, Mary Csar Executive Director Boca Raton Historical SocietyI used to think that wealthy people had a certain air of sophistication. Sure, they live in fancy dwellings and drive expensive cars, but I thought that kind life also came with impec cable behavior. Right now, Id give that conclusion a conditional WRONG. You see, Im not talking about rich people in general. Im talking about the type of behavior that happens when you put a TV camera in front of them. I have watched Donald Trumps Apprentice program since it first aired. And at first, I admired the premise. Take some intelligent people and put them on teams to work as apprentices for The Donald. Create a competitive atmosphere and let the teams have at it. If a team wins, it remains intact. If a team loses, someone gets fired. Trump has done wonders with that Youre fired line. And undoubtedly, hes made a lot of money from the program. But then he turned to the dark side. He created something called Celebrity Apprentice. The premise is basically the same, but the celebrities raise money for charities. But over the past several seasons, his celebrities and what a motley crew they have been developed into petty arguers with heavy egos and little desire to cooperate. What they do bring to the table, unfortunately, is either a lot of money or friends with a lot of money. This really turns the Apprentice concept on its ear. For many of the tasks, the competitors dont really have to do very much. They just get out their Smartphones and call a friend. Sudden, in comes a check for $5,000 or $50,000 or more. Thus, a program that was set up to spotlight the talents of various individuals turns into a competition to see who has the wealthiest friends. Not only that, the people who come on Celebrity Apprentice love to battle. Some are worse than others, but nearly everyone seems to have a nasty streak that comes out in some manner either during the task or in the famous boardroom. Now, The Donald even has his kids involved. The little Donald, The Ivanka and The Eric. (What happened to The Tiffany and The Baron? Maybe in a future season.) Just consider who is or was -on the show this year. I watched because I am a fan of George Takei. He is much more than just the actor who played Sulu on Star Trek. I have seen him in person and he is very intelligent and well spoken. He got booted off early in the season by basically falling on his sword. He was the project manager for a failed effort. He took the fall and Trump gave him the dump. Ditto for Penn Jillette. He is a funny, intelligent and quiet man. He finally got bounced. Im glad. Because I think they dont belong with the people who remain. Some of these people are just plain bad. Lisa Lampanelli, a comedienne I have never heard of, must have the foulest mouth in the world. Sailors would cringe at her vocabulary. Aubrey ODay, who I never heard of either, has flaming red hair, but little is going on inside her head. She has spent the season dumping on people and taking the credit for doing everything, whether she did it or not. On one show, when her colleagues dumped on her, she walked out. The kid cant take it.

By Douglas HeizerTHOUGHTS FROM THE PUBLISHER EDITORIALS & LETTERS East/West Boca Raton, FL By Dr. Synesio Lyra, Jr.POSITIVE LIVING Its Okay to Change Your Mind!Any person behind the wheel of a car will occasionally discover to be driving in the wrong direction. In such situations, a U-turn is not only possible, but necessary as a correc tive measure! By so doing one regains the proper perspective and recovers the right aim for that trip. In lifes journey the same often occurs. A person can be unexpectedly distracted by varied, alluring signs, easily deviating into unplanned detours and possibly getting lost, instead of remaining in the main highway which can lead to ones planned destination. Obviously, it would be most foolish to persist in a certain trajectory if, by remaining there, the end of the line would be unknown, and the results of getting there could be injurious to the traveler. Not only would one be lost but it might also be nearly impossible to find the way back to certainty and safety. An old proverb declares that all roads lead to Rome. This might have been true or not! From our own domicile we can utilize different, alterna tive pathways to reach a certain place known to us. But in other journeys wed better pay attention to the map, carefully observe all road signs, measure our time, and do all that ensures our safe arrival at the planned location. As you attempt to live life to the fullest, its imperative that you re-check your road map with regularity and realistically determine whether you are going forward or simply moving around in circles. Are you finding more obstacles than you had anticipated, or is your pathway free from any obstruc tions? Yet, even with barriers you can still reach your goal on the basis of persistence and determination! Whatever new course of ac tion may be called for, you still have the opportunity to change your mind in order to correct any situation, to remove any obstacle, to proceed with caution but also with dispatch in the pathway set before you. Its imperative to act wisely in any endeavor, to measure potential consequences in advance, to project the time and other factors necessary for travel in a certain terrain, and to reach the anticipated terminal. As Dr. George Sweeting put it, single-mindedness is necessary for a pursuit of excellence. At the same time, it is equally paramount to acknowledge other options always before you, fearing no ill if the changes you make are for your own benefit. God Himself requires a change of mind when, by His grace, you can improve your condition and remain under His watch for the continual repairs necessary throughout lifes pilgrimage. For a God-fearing person, the possibility of success is ever present, and its very real. God loves you just the way you are, John L. Mason reminds us, but He loves you too much to leave you the way you are.Those of us at the Boca Raton Tribune are joining together with pride today to announce that the long-awaited Delray Beach Tribune is now available as in print edition form. Weve been hinting at it for the past few weeks, including a page of Delray Beach Tribune news in the Boca Raton Tribune. We congratulate everyone who has worked to make Delrays newest and best newspaper a reality, in particular, C. Ron Allen, the managing editor. He has a tremendous background in the newspaper industry along with much expertise in covering Delray Beach. Theres no finer a person to handle the job of making the Delray Beach Tribune the success that the Boca Ra ton Tribune has been. Those of you who have been reading the Boca Ra ton Tribune for more than two years may understand how we operate. The Boca Tribune began as a website back in 2010. The site gained readership until it was strong enough to spin off a print edition. But we still keep the Boca Tribune website up to date on breaking and indepth news to keep the community informed. The same thing happened with the Delray Beach Tribune. C. Ron Allen began the task of putting together a website soon after the Boca Raton Tribune hit the streets. It has always been our intention to put the Delray Tribune into print, but not before it developed its own following. And we are very happy to report that many Delray residents go to delraybeachtribune.com to get their news about local events. We think C. Ron Allen has done a wonderful job covering Delray Beach, calling upon his sources and acquaintances to produce great coverage. We commend him and look forward to seeing how the Delray Beach Tribune works as a print edition. It will begin as a monthly edition, with hopes that it will soon go to every other week and then to weekly. The Boca Tribune took a similar path, starting as a website, then going to print every other week and then weekly in October of 2010. It has remained weekly since then. The fact that we have put two newspapers into print in just over two years is a testa ment to the strength of our business plan. We will also continue to work on the Coral Springs Tribune website so that it can be spun of as a print product in the future. Editor David Volz is also doing a tremendous job on that site, working hard in the neighborhood to bring the news to everyone in that Broward County community. The Tribune organization is proud of what it has done, despite a general downturn in newspaper readership na tionwide and a very difficult economy. But we have been able to turn opportunities into reality. We are really not the ones responsible for the success of these websites and publica tions. It is you, our readers, who have kept us alive and we continue to work to serve you with the best news coverage in the area. We will let you know when we make our next big move. In the meantime, God Bless America! 561-208-6029 Dr. Synesio Lyra, Jr. is a Florida resident who, for many years, was a professor at the post-graduate level. He is a writer, a sought-after conference speaker, a man 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. Read All About it.

Scheduled to open in 2014, the Marcus Neuroscience Institute will serve as a state-of-the-art center of care for neurologic and neurosurgical patients and will transform the landscape of clinical capabilities available in the region. The Institute was established with a recently announced gift from Billi and Bernie Marcus and the Marcus Foundation. The Schmidt gift will be used to help fund the construction of a new 52,000 square foot addition to the hospital which will house the Marcus Neuroscience Institute and be named the Schmidt Family Pavilion. It will contain a 22-bed neuro intensive care and stepdown unit, two dedicated operating rooms equipped with intraoperative MRI, and the latest technology. We believe the Marcus Neuroscience Institute is the most important new development in healthcare in South Florida, said Dick Schmidt. It will serve as a destination for expert neurological care from the finest physicians and clinicians coupled with the most advanced technology. The Marcus Neuroscience Institute will transform the lives of many patients suffering from memory and movement disorders, as well as other neurological conditions. We are very excited to be a part of bringing this incredibly important service to Boca Raton Regional Hospital. The Schmidt family has a multi-generational legacy of support for Boca Raton Regional Hospital. Dicks parents, Charles and Dorothy Schmidt, were early contributors to the effort to build the hospital in the mid-60s. Dick and his wife Barbara and the Schmidt Family Foundation have given several philanthropic gifts to the Lynn Cancer Institute. In addition, Dick Schmidt has just completed his tenure as two-term chairman of the Hospital Board of Trustees. The Schmidts announced the gift at the Foundations Philanthropy Guild Reception, held annually to recognize the hospitals most generous donors. During his final remarks as Hospital chairman, Dick Schmidt presented a $5 million check to Jan Savarick, president of the Boca Raton Regional Hospital Founda tion. He encouraged those in attendance to join him in supporting the Hospitals services, including the Marcus Neuroscience Institute, the Christine E. Lynn Womens Health & Wellness Institute, the Wold Family Center for Emergency Medicine, the Christine E. Lynn Heart & Vascular Institute and the Eugene M. & Christine E. Lynn Cancer Institute, housed in the Harvey & Phyllis Sandler Pavilion. We are so appreciative of the Schmidt familys commitment to the Hospital, said Jan Savarick. Their leadership and legacy of philanthropy has saved many lives and continues to make a difference for so many in our community and in the region.

Boca Raton Regional Hospital .$15M Construction Improvement Plan Progresses at St. Andrews Country ClubBOCA RATON -A $15 million club construction improvement plan has begun at St. Andrews Country Club with the redesign of multiple areas including the clubhouse, two restaurants, main entry features and landscaping, and the recreation and aquatic center. The construction improvement plan is expected to take three phases of development with a target completion date of November 2014. Phase I of the plan encompasses the clubhouse front entry landscaping and lighting, Old Course bunkers, the mens card room and both mens and ladies locker rooms and will start this summer. Phase II will begin in April 2013 and includes the recreation and aquatic center and extensive clubhouse enhancements and updates to the dining and lounge areas. Phase III will begin June 2014 with functional and practical improvements to Lakeside, a free-standing dining and entertainment facility. We are pleased that the members and Board of Governors are fully committed to the new strategic direc tion the club is taking over the next few years, said Michael Goldman, president of St. Andrews Country Club Board of Governors. The end result will be to attract younger members to the community and the club stra tegic improvement plan is a major step forward in accomplishing this goal. When asked about the financing of the plan, Goldman responded, By taking advantage of todays low interest rates, St. Andrews Country Club members were able to finance the $15 million project with no increase in fees and no additional assessment. It is important that we continue to improve the club and facilities while being mindful of current economic conditions and the importance of not placing additional monetary burdens on the membership. Many prospective members seeking real estate in private residential communities are attracted to those clubs offering great upgraded fa cilities, reputable service and family-oriented amenities. The 3-year strategic improvement plan provides a roadmap for the club and facility upgrades, replacements or expansion that meets the needs of current and future members. The most important enhancements from the construction improvement plan are to the recreation and dining areas that will encourage and promote spaces for families of all ages to enjoy, added Craig D. Martin C.C.M., St. Andrews Country Club chief operating officer and general manager. St. Andrews Country Club has been the leader in the Boca Raton market for setting the benchmark on standards of excellence. Our goal is to protect our members real estate interests and investments while attracting new members who appreciate the highest quality of facilities and service. Over the past four years, the private country club has embarked on a project by project improvement plan including a new roof, new greens on the Old Course, reclaimed water irrigation system and most recently a new air conditioning system. St. Andrews Country Club of Boca Raton, a resident-only Platinum Club of America and an Emerald Club of America, is internationally recognized for magnificent estate residences. The club features two 18-hole championship golf courses, including an Arnold Palmer Signature Design. The club offers a comprehensive Golf Performance Center with an indoor hitting bay, private practice area, covered patio with complimentary beverage station, state of the art Callaway Golf branded club fitting area. The club also includes 15 clay tennis courts, including a European red clay court, a full service spa and fitness center and a 125,000 square foot clubhouse in the center of it all.

The third annual Fine Wine and Canines fundraiser to benefit PROPEL was far and away the greatest success so far, with more than 120 dogs and 400 humans in attendance at the Monument Plaza of Royal Palm Place. We know there were at least 120 dogs because we ran out of tags, said event co-chair Elizabeth Hevert. The amazing thing was that the dogs got along so well. They seem to sense they were at a party. PROPEL (People Reaching Out to Provide Education and Leadership offers assistant and guidance to more than 60 lower income or at-risk youth in the Boca Raton area. Fine Wine and Ca nines is one of two yearly fundraiser events. The other is a PROPEL Classic golf tournament held in the fall. A portion of the proceeds goes toward PROPEL scholarships, administered through the George Snow Foundation. Jeffrey Pepper, an AKC professional judge, drove from Palm Beach Gardens and volunteered his time as judge of a loosely-designed dog competition. Pepper travels the world judg ing canine events such as the Westminster Kennel Dog Show, but the PROPEL event is decidedly less formal. Pepper is also President of the Palm Beach Dog Club. Its always fun to play around a bit at a dog competition, said Pepper. People take things far too seriously. I tried to engage people. I actually asked the audience to judge the best costume by applause. Nineteen top restaurants from Royal Palm Place and other Boca Raton locations donated food from sample sta tions at the event. Wine was donated by Opici Wines of Palm Beach and spirits were donated by Blue Martini and Skinny Margarita. Also donating their time were professional musicians Angel Curras and Mary Eiland. I think its safe to say that we raised close to $10,000, commented Michael Daszkal, CPA, who volunteers as trea surer of PROPEL. The will help the PROPEL organization, and I think everyone had a good time. PROPEL has only one full-time employee, executive director Tolliver Miller. Approximately 40 people of all ages volunteered to make Fine Wines and Canines happen. When a function such as our Fine Wine and Canines is a success, we have to thank many people, said Miller. The credit starts with the planning committee and goes to the sponsors, vendors, volunteers and guests. We appreciate your support of our participants and programs.

Located at 2885 Federal Highway in Delray Beach (561-266-9298) they offer dining inside for 150 and another 20 on their patio. 10 sections of the menu total 108 dishes, their combinations another 35 and their chefs selections 14 more spicy dishes well marked. This reviewer and 3 foodies enjoy sampling such standards as plump, well filled egg rolls and spring rolls, both with above average taste. Both pork steamed dumplings and the shrimp steamed dumplings were light pockets of fine flavor. My soft shell crab was tasty but not crispy, which I much prefer. Owner Michael Chang suggested the House Special Wonton Soup a very nice broth with vegetables, shrimp and more! Their hot and sour soup was great with a discernible bite and after bite a must try. We sampled a sweet Pad Thai shrimp full flavored with good size shrimp in the excellent sauce. Chicken with ginger root then chicken with eggplant were both enjoyable. There is a special menu with dishes described in Chinese for their Chinese following. Michael described and presented a great Chinese style basil chicken which we feasted upon. Ask your server about the extra treat. We enjoyed the duck with plum sauce true duck taste comes through and is delicious! A must try. The average Chinese food goer orders a shrimp with lobster sauce, scallops with snow peas, chicken chow mein and the like. We found them average in taste but we encourage all to seek out their signature dishes. A case in point was the wonderful sliced lamb with garlic sauce, their flavors blended perfectly. Ask your server for suggestions. Old Place, in addition to dine in or take outs, does catering and banquets. Their true Chinese dishes are a cut above with nice sized portions for both lunch and dinner. Luncheon from 11:30PM to 3PM daily, a sunset dinner menu to 6:30PM and full dinners from 5PM to 9:30PM Sundays through Thursdays, 10PM Fridays and Saturdays. Established a year ago, they have a following who appreciates true Chinese foods in liberal portions and at attractive prices. Why notGo and Enjoy! FOOD REVIEWBy Marc Kent Quality Chinese Cuisine at Old Place BistroMoon Over Buffalo to be Performed Friday, May 4 at 7 pm and Saturday, May 5 at 8 pm. West Boca HighBOCA RATON Since its debut in November of 2011 to overwhelming success, West Boca High Schools Drama Department has been asked over and over to bring an encore performance of Ken Ludwigs comedy Moon over Buffalo, directed by Lance Blank, back to audiences! And they have. Performances will be presented May 4-5 at West Boca High School. The story begins with over-the-hill repertory thespians George and Charlotte Hay touring the backwaters of Buffalo, NY in 1953, the end of an era. Touring classical repertory is no longer in fashion, and George and Charlotte are touring with tired versions of Cyrano de Bergerac and Private Lives. The road shows that draw large crowds now are large musicals preferably with star names! But George and Charlotte still carry on, despite the dwindling audiences and their inappropriate roles as young lovers. But fortune has given them one more shot at stardom, as they learn that Frank Capra is en route to Buffalo to catch their matinee performance and consider casting them in his next movie, The Scarlet Pimpernel epic! Meanwhile, a domestic crisis drives George to drink, new and ex-lovers appear, and hilarious misunderstandings and madcap adventures ensue in this farce filled with twists and turns, collisions and mistaken identities, miscommunications, slapstick antics, terrifying swordplay and five doors! Tickets are $15 for all shows. Call the box office for reserved seats at 561-6722066 or come to the box office starting one hour before curtain. All shows are at West Boca High Schools Performing Arts Theatre, 3 miles west of 441 on Glades Road. For more information contact Cheryl Crout 561-672-2064 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.

This is the first time the competition has been staged in the beautiful new Wold Theater. The previous three shows were outdoors at Mizner Park Amphitheater. We think this is one of the strongest lineups ever, said Rotary President Doug Mummaw. Every one will be very comfortable in the new theater.

Harvey started out as a stand-up comedian, after stints as a boxer, insurance salesman and mail carrier. Now he is an accomplished author, actor and ra dio and television personality. While Harvey is an AfricanAmerican, his insights into human nature are universal, and thereby lies the appeal of Think Like a Man, brought to the screen by director Tim Story (Barbershop). Harveys unapologetically sexist book (written with Denene Miller) basically says that men are interested in just one thing: sex, which is referred to as The Cookie. Any rational adult knows that there is a lot more in male-female relationships than just that, but when it is played for laughs, it can be funny. With a skilled ensemble of agile comic actors, shallow as it is, Think Like a Man is quite funny. Each of the male and female characters is a stereotype. Dominic (Michael Ealy) is a Dreamer in love with Lauren (Taraji P. Henson), a high-powered business executive. Jeremy (Jerry Ferrara) is a Non-Committer, in a longterm relationship with Kristen (Gabrielle Union). Michael (Terrence Jenkins) is a Mamas Boy who falls for Candace (Regina Hall), a single mom with a young son. Zeke (Romany Malco) is a Player who is out to snare Mya (Meagan Good), a woman who is unsuccessfully trying to hold out for a 90-Day Rule. Bennett (Gary Owen) is a Happily Married Man and Cedric (Kevin Hart), an angry little man with a big chip on his should, is a Happily Divorced Man. The best dialogue is when the guys are together, drinking beer, playing basketball and talking guy stuff. The women do not have a similar opportunity to show much depth to their characters. Nevertheless, Think Like a Man is funny in a neverending battle of the sexes kind of way. In other words, it is not to be taken seriously for a minute. Two and a half starsHoudini Lives Again in MiamiThe acclaimed production of Death and Harry Houdini opens Thursday, April 26 and continues through May 20 in an exclusive South Florida run at Arsht Center for the Performing Arts in Miami. Playwright Nathan Allen has fine-tuned his script for this production, which premiered at the House Theatre of Chicago. The deathdefying illusionist Houdini is played by Dennis Watkins, an actor who is also an awardwinning magician.

22 April 27, 2012 through May 2, 2012 Edition 97Support your community newspaper Patronize The Boca Raton Tribune Advertisers. Let them know you saw their Ads in the Boca Tribune.Every May, the city council conducts a goal setting session to establish objec tives and direction for the city manager during the upcoming year. This year, May 2 4 is the dates set aside for this public exercise. In preparation for the moment, a review of the minutes from past goal setting sessions is helpful. 2010 and 2011minutes are easily accessible on the internet and provide insight into this process and the procedure to be expected next week in city hall chambers. Having reviewed these minutes, one can not help but wonder if the outcome of this years session can be written in advance as a cut and paste exercise from years gone by. Administration will come forward with the financial shortfalls projected in the citys budget; department heads will present the challenges and obstacles within each of their departments; and the public will offer comments that are so late in the process as to be rendered almost meaningless. Finally, the five council members will be asked to set in place their collective vision based upon this kaleidoscope of restraints and limitations. A harrowing task to say the least as vision may be the one outcome that is least likely to occur given this overall setting. Websters dictionary defines vision as the art of seeing; the ability to form a pic ture in ones mind of future greatness. Visionary is defined as someone who imag ines how things should be while paying little regard to how they actually are. Perhaps a little more of these characteristics could be infused in the goal setting exercise so that the results will enable our city, Boca Raton, to find ways to distinguish itself and attract greater interest from outside observers and investors to locate here instead of the myriad of other opportunities that exist nationwide. Vision is what makes us more attrac tive and more competitive. With these definitions in mind, one wonders what is the vision and who is the visionary to carry the message forward in the outside world? As to who there is no one person in this governmental structure assigned to this task and no one person who has stepped forward to carry it out. The council, collectively, conveys the vision for the city and through a process messages the image of what locating in Boca Raton may be like to both the residential and commercial observer. Residential is not the concern raised here. Commercial interest is. With millions of available square feet of entitled commercial space in the downtown and in the commerce park, attracting new users is one major item that adds immediately to the tax base, filling the councils coffers with new revenues without raising the millage and without adding to the costs.A no brainer but remarkably missing from the vision. A further review of the public record uncovers another document titled Boca Raton Vision 2026. This document is filled with many platitudes. A quality place to live; a great place to work; an outstanding place to play. Tell me any city that does not have these very same aspirations. Hogwash. Nowhere in the document is there any clear articulation of a vision to achieve these goals. Nowhere is there any clear articulation as to what in the vision would act as the catalyst to inspire outside commercial and investor interest to chose to locate here, to chose to invest in our great city. A fair reading of this document reflects a mundane, ministerial outline of a process completely lacking in inspiration and vision. Webster defines inspira tion as the creative impulse of an artist, a person who or thing that inspires! Again, putting aside the issue of person, this document is by no means the thing that inspires. It is merely the to do list for the city manager to manage over the next period of time. Inspirational it is not and the city manager is not meant to inspire. He is a functionary tasked to get the job done efficiently, on time, and on budget.nothing more, nothing less. So whats missing? Leadership. Back to Webster, leadership is defined as the quality displayed by a leader. A leader is someone who acts with the courage of ones conviction and puts ones opinion into actual practice. These goal setting sessions can not and do not achieve inspired vision or a coura geous leader. That is not to fault any individual but rather an overt criticism of our governmental structure where five equal elected council members are tasked with managing the manager and setting the budget. Again, merely a mundane and ministerial function certainly not designed for vision and inspiration. Moving into the future!

MUNICIPAL East/West Boca Raton, FL Boca Raton Police Rule Shooting Was Suicide AttemptBOCA RATON Boca Raton police have ruled that a shooting about 8:20 p.m. April 16 in the West Camino Real area was a suicide attempt. When officers arrived on scene, they met with the 25 year old victim who had a gunshot wound to his face. The victim originally told officers he was shot by a person with whom he was acquainted and provided a description of the suspects and their vehicle. As detectives arrived and continued the investigation, the victim changed his story, police said. Throughout the interview, the victim continued to change the details of his story including where it occurred and what had transpired, said a police report. The following evening, detectives went to Delray Medical Center and interviewed the victim again. This time, the victim told detectives he shot himself in a failed suicide attempt. The victim said he is a convicted felon and was afraid he would be arrested for having a handgun. Police said the victim is to be detained for psychiatric evaluation and charges may be pending.Vision.

Abrams attended the grand opening of the Biology Screening Laboratory at the Boca Raton Police Services Department. Specialists at this lab facility will pre-screen crime scene evidence to identify and collect biological stains for submission to the Forensic Biology Unit (FBU) of the Palm Beach County Sheriffs Office Crime Laboratory for prioritized DNA analysis. The new lab will provide quicker turn-around time in processing evidence for the Boca Raton, Boynton Beach and Delray Beach police departments. In 2009, the Board of County Commissioners approved more than $500,000 in grant funding in a joint project with the Boca Raton Police Services Department Forensic Laboratory. Boca Raton provided a 25 percent funding match and two laboratory analyst positions. No county funds were required.

Boca Police Nab Alleged Robber of CVS on North Federal HighwayBOCA RATON Boca Police have arrested a suspect in connection with the April 21 robbery of the CVS at 2390 North Federal Highway, a police report said. Officers met with the clerk who told them that at about 7:00 a.m., a male entered the store and attempted to purchase a Snickers bar. When the male got to the register he said he didnt have any money and had to go get his wallet. The suspect was wearing a black baseball cap, a green Coleman rain jacket, grey and white striped pajama bot toms and white sneakers. Several minutes later, the suspect re-entered the store and again went to the register to purchase a Snickers bar. While the clerk was ringing up the candy bar, the suspect put his hand in his pocket and made a pointing gesture at the clerk, and said, Give me the money in the register. The clerk asked him what he meant and he replied, Give me the money in the register or Ill shoot you. After the clerk gave him about $73, the suspect walked out the door and went north on Federal Highway, said police. Boca Raton detectives reviewed the surveillance video, realized the suspect looked like Douglas Wrigley, who lives at 2500 North Federal Highway. Detective Clare put a photo line-up together and it was shown to the clerk, who identified Wrigley as the probable suspect. Detectives who staked out Wrigleys home nabbed the alleged suspects as he walked out of his apartment about 4 p.m. The suspect reportedly told Detective Clare that he did not use a gun but only had a pen in his pocket. Detectives arrested Wrigley and charged him with robbery.

Vitality Laser Spa, the Finest Health and Beauty Treatments ImaginedBy Gina Onori BOCA RATONImmediately after Lyons and Glades Road intersect, rests Vitality Laser Spa in which one can experience the finest health and beauty treatments imag ined. The spa includes laser hair removal, manicures, pedicuress, skin tightening, acne treatments, facials, messages, cellulite treatments, spray tans, temporary tattoos, botox, fillers, teeth whitening, and non-surgical face lifts. Owners Shiela Nahari and Miriam Sinovetz have been running the spa since January 2011. All of the products in the spa are vegan, and all of the treatments are natural. We made a place where people can feel good about themselves, said Nahari. We want people to come and enjoy the experience and feel pretty, added Sinovetz. It is a wellness center in which we mix health with beauty. Vitality Laser Spa caters to all age groups and genders. A teenage girl may want a spray tan for prom, a 30-yearold woman who just had a baby might desire skin tightening for her stretch marks, or a 40-year-old man may need laser treatment to get rid of the unruly hair on his back. Vitality Laser Spa does not discriminate in any sense. Packages range depending on which treatment one desires. Laser hair removal is currently the most popular package at the spa. It is effortless and does not involve any pain. A top-of-the-line light goes inside of the skin and dries out the folicals. However, one treatment wont do the trick. Everyone is different, but successful therapies range anywhere from 4-8 treatments. Its practical, said Na hari. With laser removal you dont have to be wasting time shaving. Vitality Laser Spa is running a special in laser hair removal for a $299.00 package in which one can receive lower legs, brazilian bikini, and underarms treated. The spa is also holding another special for the same price in which one can receive chest, shoulders and arm lasered. Other package deals include a package of 10 non-surgical face lifts for $1,500.00, or $250.00 per session. Facials range anywhere from $75.00 to $250.00 depending on which kind one wants. Massage treatments also range from $20.00 to $85.00 depending on the area of the body and the time desired. Vitality Laser Spa is presently promoting a Mothers Day special in which 4 facial treatments are $400 and 4 skin tightening sessions are $1,500. This is a superb gift proposal for your loved one this Mothers Day.

Some people ask me if its a good time to invest in the markets, or if they should be sticking their money under a mattress. Others ask me about the economy. A few ask me about specific investments. But the most common question I get is probably the best. What, they say, is the number one tip you can give me? Precautions are useless after a crisis! The best tip I can give is quite simple, Precautions are useless after a crisis! Whens the worst time to buy a home-security system? After a break-in. Whens the worst time to check your tire pressure? After youve already had a blowout. Whens the worst time to put your seat belt on? You get the idea. Its a fundamental fact of life, and it extends to your finances, too. Money can take hits just like everything else. People lose their jobs. Investments can plummet. There might be a death in the family. We have to contend with natural disasters, theft, fraud, and just plain bad luck. Theres only one way to fight it: by having a plan. But a plan is nearly useless after the fact. So whats my number one tip as a financial advisor? Do now what youll wish you had done later. If you take suitable precautions for your money, youll find that its always there to support you, even in your direst need. Dont trap yourself by the hardships of life.

A: The last thing that I did today was help a dad who has most of the overnights with his two year old with potty training. He is a great dad, but has as little experience with potty training as any first time parent. Luckily, a week ago another client, a woman, emailed me a specific schedule recommended for her child by a child psychologist. So, after taking any identifying language from her e-mail I printed out the potty instructions and gave them to my client, who was delighted. Earlier in the day I spent a half hour on the phone trying to convince a lady whose husband had managed to steal her inheritance from her uncle as he was on his deathbed to stay with the lawyer that she had already hired, as he was a good lawyer and good guy. She had a difficult case, and really not enough money to complete the case that she needed to complete. Im in the middle of an attempt to collect fees against a former client through legal proceedings. When our trial was over she kissed my partner and I on our respective cheeks for doing a great job, but then later told a judge that we were bums and should not have gotten paid at all, even though we won the case. The judge disagreed and awarded us the fees. Needless to say we will probably get the money but no apology, and no referrals from her country club friends. In many cases we are the psychologist without portfolio and the accountant with no degree when the case is too small for the services of a forensic accountant. Thank God for the software developed by an Orlando divorce lawyer which does the adding, subtracting and the tax numbers. Clients cry on our shoulders, threaten us with Bar grievances (please check my record on The Florida Bar Website), walk into our offices wanting their new boy friend or girl friend to sit in on our consultation (which we cannot do) and call and e-mail us at all hours and days, and expect 24-7 service. Our clients are a mixture of the society and every crazy situation imaginable crosses our desks every day. We are obligated to take your cases, if you can pay for it, and then complete them as best possible. In each matter, the other side comes with his or her expectations and demands and most often neither believes that they have received all they were entitled to at the end of the day. The economy during the last five years has not helped. Who knew that there was such a thing as a short sale? Who knew that in South Florida ones house might become worth less than the price of paying off their mortgage? Why cant two guys get married in Florida, they could in New York? Can the two guys divorce here? No. The truth is we do anything in pursuit of your rights under the Florida statutes that we can do for you as long as we both stay within the law. Yes, we charge for the services and expect to be paid and, no, we do not guarantee any results. If it was not for the laws that we use to obtain our results you guys and gals would have no way to adjust your marital grievances with one another and might take to sarcasm or pistols to remedy your problems. Take my word, you are not clever enough to kill with your words and you are not a good shot. Over 90 percent of all cases filed are completed without a trial, so it is likely that no judge will ever rule on your case. We lawyers are your best chance to receive justice and fairness through the legal system.Effecting Change Renewing Your MindAlmost every one of us has something about ourselves we would like to change at work, in relationships, in day-today habits and actions. To change your life, however, you must first change how you think. Behind everything you do is a thought. Every behavior is motivated by a belief, and every action is prompted by an attitude. To hear modern-day gurus tell it, this would seem to be a startling new discovery. But God revealed this truth thousands of years before psychologists understood it: Be careful how you think; your life is shaped by your thoughts (Proverbs 4:23, Todays English Version). To illustrate this point, imagine riding in a speedboat on a lake with an automatic pilot set to go eastward. If you were to decide to reverse course and head toward the west, you have two possible ways to change the boats direction. One way is to grab the steering wheel and physically force the speedboat to head in the opposite direction from where the autopilot has been programmed to guide it. By sheer willpower, you could overcome the autopilot, but you would feel constant resistance. Your arms would eventually tire of the stress, you would have to let go of the steering wheel, and the boat would instantly turn back toward the east, as it had been internally programmed. Sounds like a lot of hard work, correct? And the change would only be temporary once you stopped trying to force the change, all would return to the way it was before. This is what happens when you try to change your life with willpower. You tell yourself, I will force myself to eat less ... stop smoking ... quit being disorganized and late not respond angrily when I am under pressure. Willpower can produce short-term change, but creates constant internal stress because you have not dealt with root causes of what you would like to change. Making the change you desire does not feel natural. It requires great effort and willpower. Eventually you give up and go off the diet, grab another cigarette, arrive late for another important meeting, or react with inappropriate anger. There is a better and easier way: Change your autopilot change the way you think. Or, as the Bible says, be willing for it to change: Let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think (Romans 12:2). Change always starts first in the mind. The way you think determines the way you feel, and the way you feel influences the way you act, which means, there must be a spiritual renewal of your thoughts and attitudes (Ephesians 4:23). To be like Christ, you must develop the mind of Christ. The Bible talks about having the mind of Jesus Christ, and calls this mental shift, repentance. The Greek literally means, to change your mind and direction. To repent means to change the way you think. You must change your thinking about God, yourself, sin, other people, life, your future, everything; and adopt Christs outlook and perspective on life: You follow Him! 2011, Purpose Driven Life.

The Strikers forward has formed a connection with midfielder Walter Restrepo, who assisted on both of Herrons goals in San Antonio. Andy (Herron) benefitted from two great passes from Walter (Restrepo), said Strikers head coach Daryl Shore. Were happy to see our players recognized by the league for their efforts. Herrons first goal came when Restrepo found him just inside the penalty area where Herron fired a near post shot toward goal and caught Scorpions goalkeeper Pat Hannigan wrongfooted. His second was a deft finish where Herron touched down a Restrepo pass and poked a shot past Hannigan to record the goal. Herron is now tied for the NASL lead with three goals on the season. The Strikers forward becomes the first Striker to receive the award twice in during a regular sea son. Herron spent five seasons in Major League Soccer with the Chicago Fire and Columbus Crew and has been capped 17 times for the Costa Rican National Team.

Picking things up in the bottom of the third, with Lynn down 6-0, Barry put two more runs on the board then added another two in the bottom of the fourth to put the game away and end things after five. Barry pitcher, Alexis Yohe, had a perfect game going in to the top of the forth before Bianca Savulak broke it up with an infield single. The only other threat from the Fighting Knights came in the top of the fifth when Vicky Naginsky struck a two-out single followed by a Kasey Murray hard-hit single through the left side. Barry then closed the door on Lynn with a strikeout to end the game. Missy Montgomery took the circle for Lynn in the second game of the day and surrendered three runs on eight hits to the Buc caneers in the 4-0 loss. Barry put one run up in the first on a twoout RBI single then in the second collected a three-run home run from Sara Broeseker to total a 4-0 tilt. Montgomery shut out the Buccaneers for the next four innings but the Lynn offense could not sting anything together. Christina Carvatta tallied the first hit of the game for Lynn in the third inning. Then in the fourth, Lauren Garceau pulled a 1-2 pitch down the left field line for a leadoff double. The only other hits for the Fighting Knights came in the sixth when Savulak doubled to left center.
