By Dale M. King PALM BEACH COUNTY County voters tiring of the constant TV coverage and news reports about the race for president pitting incumbent Barack Obama against challenger Mitt Romney dont have to wait until Election Day to make their decision. The county will again schedule early voting throughout Palm Beach County, as it has done for most elec tions for the past seven years. And if the 2008 presidential elec tion turnout is any indication of what will happen this year, polling places will be packed throughout the usual 10-day early voting period. The race between Obama and John McCain four years ago drew many voters to the polls both on Election Day and at early voting locations. A similar turnout is expected this year. Election Day is Nov. 6. Supervisor of Elections Susan Bucher has not yet announced the early voting period or assigned polling plac es. During early voting, the electorate does not cast ballots at their own voting spots; rather, Bucher assigns those duties to workers at a number of countywide locations. In the run-up to the Aug. 14 prima ry, the elections boss set early voting from Aug. 4 to 11, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. each day. Four Boca-Delray area polling places were established at the West Boca Library, Hagen Ranch Library in Delray Beach, Delray Beach City Hall and the Spanish River Library. Florida has allowed early voting since the 2004 Legislature passed a measure standardizing the practice throughout the state. Early voting is defined as casting a ballot prior to Election Day at a location designated by the supervisor of elections and depositing the ballot in the tabulation system. Under a new House Bill directive which went into effect May 2011, all supervisors will begin conducting early voting in their main and branch offices 10 days before the election and end them on the third day before an election. In addition, supervisors may designate any city hall or public library as an early voting site; however, if so designated, these sites must be geographically located so that all voters in the county have an equal opportunity to cast a vote. Early voting will be conducted no less than six hours and no more than 12 hours per day. The hours will be determined at the discretion of the elections supervisor.

Edition 115ObituaryThe Boca Raton Tribune Interns:Guadalupe Monarrez, Gina Onori, Malcolm Shields, Shannon CopelandThe Boca Raton Tribune COMMUNITY NEWS East/West Boca Raton, FL Community News MCALLISTER, DR. RAY MOND F. (Dr. Mac), Age 89, of Lighthouse Point, Florida passed away quietly in his home on Monday, September 17, 2012. He was born in 1923 to Raymond and Jessie McAllister, with honorary father King Neptune. He is survived by his two sons, Keith and Kevin McAllister; his daughter, Karen Day; granddaughters, Lisa and Maureen McAllister, Cristin Day, and Kerry McAllister; grandsons, Matthew McAllister, Patrick Day, and Evan McAllister; great grandson Nicholas, and great granddaughter Isa bella. He will be greatly missed. Ray served his country with honor and courage in the United States Army during WWII early invasion of North Africa, the Italian campaign including the Anzio landings, and in Southern France. He received his doctorate in Marine Geology from Texas A&M in College Station, TX. Ray maintained a lifelong fascination with and love of the worlds oceans. He learned to scuba dive in 1952. That began his career teaching about the oceans, studying and exploring them worldwide from Bermuda to Guam. One of his more unusual exploits was his attempt to ride a humpback whale one evening at sea, when he got his foot caught in the blowhole. The whale rolled away from the side of the ship and sounded (as whales are wont to do with a foot inserted). Clearly he extricated himself and lived to tell the story again and again and again. Ray helped start the worlds first Ocean Engineering program at Florida Atlantic University (FAU) and taught oceanography there for 28 years, before retiring as a Professor Emeritus in 1993. He was a founder and mentor of the FAU Human Powered Submarine race team. During the years he lived in southeast Florida, Dr. Mac tirelessly advocated for the protection and preservation of Floridas coral reefs. He served as an honorary member of the U. S. Coast Guard Auxiliary, was an active member of the Under Sea Adventurers Dive Club, participated as an honorary member of the Old Time Music Jammers, and had served as a member of the Hillsboro Lighthouse Preserva tion Society. For more information about Dr. Ray McAllister, see his website at http://dinodiver.com/ index.html. A Mass will be said in his memory at 9:30 am Saturday, September 22 at Saint Paul the Apostle Catholic Church in Lighthouse Point, with a reception to follow at 11:00 am at the Pompano Beach Elks Lodge No. 1898, 700 NE 10th Street, Pompano Beach, FL 33060. In lieu of flowers, Ray would appreciate contributions to Catholic Charities USA or Catholic Relief Services. Arrangements entrusted to Kraeer Funeral Home, 1199 E. Sample Rd, Pompano Beach, FL 33064.

Voting sites and hours of operation will be provided 30 days prior to an election. Voters who want to vote early must bring a photo and signature identification with them. Elections officials say the intent of early voting is to meet the needs of busy people who want more options than just voting on a single day at a single precinct. Some voters, however, may wish to wait until Election Day to cast their votes. Historically, officials say, there has always been a crush of last-minute news coverage or other information about the candidates that happens in the final days of a campaign. This information may be helpful in making a decision. Those who know who they plan to support can cast votes early.

B5 Maxs Harvest Presents Food and Wine Lovers AdventureDELRAY BEACH -Many diners believe the act of pairing food with the right wine is either a mystical exercise in blind luck or too complex for the casual wine lover to grasp. Not so, says wine educator Lyn Farmer, who joins chef Chris Miracolo of Maxs Harvest for a unique exploration of the art of tasting. The event, Engaging the Senses, will be held Friday, Sept. 28 from 6-8 p.m. at Maxs Harvest Restaurant. Seating is limited. The menu for the evening will include a variety of seafood tastings, an interesting duck morsel, a rib eye course prepared three ways and an artisanal cheese course to round our the evening. We are excited to have this opportunity to educate and entertain our guests with this unique event, comments Chef Chris Miracolo of Maxs Harvest. Just as the restaurant takes a holistic, organic approach to food, Farmer believes one can taste wine in a holistic way as well, using all five senses and a little common sense to arrive at some stunning combinations of flavors. In Engaging the Senses, Lyn works closely with Chef Miracolo to show that wine does not change the taste of food, but that food can often change the taste of wine. Using this concept as a starting point and with a collection of sparking, white, ros and red wines, he shows how to maximize the compatibility of wine and food. Lyn Farmer is an internationally respected journalist and the recipient of the James Beard Foundation Award for Best Writing on Wines & Spirits. He is also Festival Direc tor of the United Way Miami Wine & Food Festival. Maxs Harvest is Delray Beachs own Farm to Fork restaurant, which uses the freshest ingredients available from local farmers and fisherman. The restaurants meat comes from animals that were raised humanely and free of steroids, growth hormones and antibiotics. They use seafood that was caught or raised without damaging the ecosystem and they treat their products responsibly and prepare them simply.

8 Edition 115 September 20, 2012 through September 26, 2012www.bocaratontribune.com All letters to the editor should be sent to: The Boca Raton Tribune, Ive spent a lot of time thinking about what to write in this weeks column. There are so many things to talk about. Anti-American unrest in the Middle East. The nasty presidential election. High gas prices. No, these are all too grim. Id really like to comment on what a great job Boca Raton and the sponsors did planning and executing the Boca and Brazil meet to celebrate the Brazilian Beat for Brazilian Independence Day earlier this month. I hate to say it, but this was the first Friday Night LIVE! event that my wife and I were able to attend. We brought a couple of friends and we all enjoyed the great music and the terrific ambiance. I saw an item on Facebook that said the crowd numbered around 10,000. I didnt think Sanborn Square could accommodate such a crowd. Admittedly, the festival was jammed, but there was still lots of room to move around. I was particularly impressed by the orderly crowd. Everyone was enjoying the evening without causing any undue behavior problems. Since I work with Douglas Heizer and his family at the Tribune, I obviously was aware of the event long before it was held. I remember Douglas and Carlo Barbieri visiting Miami with Mayor Susan Whelchel, Councilwoman Constance Scott and others to meet with officials at the Brazilian Consulate. In just the past couple of months, I have learned a lot about the importance of Brazil to the economy of the world and, in particular, the United States. A lot of Brazilian business people have set up shop in the US, even within the greater Boca Raton area. Ive discovered that Brazilians are a cordial people who love their work, but also love to party and that was clear on the streets of Boca Raton the night of the Independence Day celebration. We heard a lot of great music coming from the stage set up on Federal Highway next to Sanborn Square. Entertainers were sing er Rose Max and Batuke Samba Funk along with a Capoeira and Carnival show and Zumba demonstration and DJ Fred. I passed one of the gourmet food trucks along the way and sniffed my way toward. My wife stopped me at that point and noted that we had stopped for dinner on the way to the event, so there was no need for more munching. I simply told her I wanted to explore Brazilian cuisine. I think her response was Yeah, right. (She quickly sees through my phony stories.) I just wanted to emphasize what a great job everyone did, and Im glad the Tribune was among the sponsors, along with the Consultate General of Brazil, the Palm Beach County Convention & Visitors Bureau, Rotary Club of West Boca Raton, Leblon, Caf Brasil 88.9 FM, Gazeta Brazilian News, Acontece Magazine and others. Next Stop, Meet Me On The Promenade Following up on the Brazilian Beat festivities I discussed above, Downtown Boca is readying for its second annual Meet Me On The Promenade free two-night, one-day community festival set for Friday, October 26th from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. and Saturday, October 27th from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. This is another great event that shows downtown Boca Raton is alive and well. My wife and I went last year, and since then, Ive been telling everyone in City Hall to please, please schedule another one this year. I guess they heard my pleading. According to Boca Raton Downtown Manager Ruby Childers (not to be confused with Ruby Tuesday), a Stroll, Shop & Savor downtown Boca self-guided tour program will help attendees navigate easily through the communitys assets: dining, shopping, fashion, culture, family fun, living, and nightlife and all the Meet Me On The Promenade scheduled activities and programming, entertainment, retail and dining discounts, and giveaway offerings. Participating retailers and restaurants will remain open late, and trolleys will run continually during Meet Me on the Promenade activities.

Its unfortunate how the quality of government in our great city has declined in the last couple of years. The Chapman debacle should have taught them to be responsive to the voters. Well set things right in the next election! Dear Mr. Gora, I read your article but I do not understand if in the end, at present Florida law does or does not require to include financial affidavits as public records in divorce judgments. I ask this question because last July I got an uncontested divorce with a Marital Settlement Agreement and at that time was not even discussed at the hearing the fact that we would have preferred not having our financial affidavits in public records. Could I at this point request the court of not making them publicly available? What is the Florida Statues governing this issue? Thank you very much for your reply that I am confident will help me to better understand the issue. Sincerely yours.

There are times when exclamation points shall spontaneously emerge, on account of what you see, hear and experi ence! Life is to be lived with awe, filled with a sense of wonder! Moment by moment, you are met with manifold and multiform surprises. Its good to possess the tools needed to express the unique emotion elicited by each new experience! In like manner, you also need the corresponding punctuation marks which best convey those unique sentiments! Just like you punctuate whatever you record on paper, your life pilgrimage will also benefit from the same in order to make sense to people who observe you, as well as for personal meaning in your own manifold experiences and challenges! Therefore, never place a coma where God intends a period, nor a period where a coma should be employed. Be sure to utilize interrogation points where they are legitimately called for, and never neglect the rightful use of exclamation points. The more you consider all your actions, you shall also find reasons to make use of colons and semi-colons in situations where these are necessary to make more sense. Indeed, every single punctuation sign has a place in every transaction you make, in each activity you engage in! In the readings of written texts, one depends on adequate punctuation signs for better understanding and fuller enjoyment of what is written before ones eyes. Improperly composed texts make little or no sense at all. It may appear on an advertisement, an article, a book, in personal letters, or in whatever document requiring a signature and commitment! Some individuals, unwisely, force their life to proceed without a period; they move day in, day out at a fast pace and without a stop. Even their short pauses, such as a coffee break, a meal, and other customary daily interruptions, do not remove the tensions which such persons force into their endeavors. They fail to acknowledge the need of balance in the execution of their tasks, both for their own sanity, and for the sake of better quality in productivity! Never lose your sense of curiosity. To that end, make good use of as many question marks you may need, remembering at the same time that there may be no answers to some of your interrogations! At the same time, dont just ask questions which make no sense, nor bring any new light into a pressing subject or investigation! Although punctuation signs are almost inevitable in your daily trajectory, consider the exclama tion point with extra care. Life is filled with wonder; many of your encounters with nature and other significant experiences in the heavy traffic of daily life should elicit more Wow and Aha reactions from you and every other human observant! To that end, be attentive to the manifold surprises which life brings your way, any day, any time, both good and bad each begging for your acknowledgment in the form of an appropriate exclamation! 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. This week I have decided to place this sensational column written by Ken Korkow as my Thoughts from the Publisher. Dont we all wish we sometimes could have a do over in life? This is a great read, I hope you enjoy this column as much I have enjoyed it. Have a great week and God bless. Douglas Heizer There are times when I wish I could have some do overs in my life. One of the first things I would change, if I could, would benot investing the time and money that I did in getting my MBA. Yes, my Master in Business Administration degree was a stepping stone to my first job. Yes, it provided a good network of relationships. And yes, the degree gave me confidence. But it was similar to the diploma that gave the scarecrow confidence in the classic film, The Wizard of Oz. He did not really need it he only believed that he did. In my pursuit of the MBA, which many business leaders consider a prerequisite to success in the work world, I learned many things that just were not pertinent or even true. No, I am not a Luddite one of those people that resist progress or change. I just try to be realistic and practical. In my everyday search for bottom-line truth, I have always strived to find what really works. And time and experience have taught me that most of the knowledge acquired during the quest for an MBA does not work. Let me give you a case in point: finances. While I was a student, our MBA mantra was: The function of business is to maximize profits within legal and ethical constraints. I learned that, believed it, and adhered to each word. In the process I became the head of several different organizations. I had the toys, the material rewards that come from making profits the top priority in your company. I became wealthy, beyond anything I could have imagined. However, as I continued this quest to maximize profits within legal and ethical constraints, swallowing that philosophy completely, I became a manipulating people user. I left a trail of broken relationships in my wake, and nearly lost my marriage in the process. I am not trying to condemn everyone that has earned an MBA, but I understand too well how that course of academic training can skew a persons goals and values. I have since come to embrace something far better than an MBA. What is better than an MBA? It is the realistic, practical, bottom-line truth that comes from only one source: the Bible. You see, the Bible talks a lot about finances, too. In fact, it says more about finances than it talks about heaven and hell! For more than two decades I have become a diligent student of the Bible and have concluded it holds more truth, more practical guidance for everyday living including the workplace of the 21st century than 1,000 MBAs could even hope to offer. The New Testament summarizes the value of learning and applying the Word of God: All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the man (and woman) of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work (2 Timothy 3:16-17). My best advice for business and professional people is to study Gods Word every day. If you do this with sincerity and an honest, open heart, you will be amazed at what it has to say about your life and your work. Without question, it is life-changing.If I Could Do It Over Again
10 Edition 115 September 20, 2012 through September 26, 2012www.bocaratontribune.com BOCA RATON More than $55,000 in educational program grants were awarded during the Greater Boca Raton Chamber of Commerces September Membership Breakfast Sept. 13 at the Via Mizner Golf and Country Club. The money was given as part of the Chambers Golden Bell Education Foundation, which has contributed more than $1 million since 1991. In 1991, a group of business leaders developed Golden Bell to raise and appropriate funds to our local classrooms, said Troy M. McLellan, CCE, President and CEO of the Greater Boca Raton Chamber of Commerce. They knew then, as we know now, that a strong education system ensures the sustainability of our communitys success throughout the years. Since then, the local business community has stepped up to support Golden Bell and we look forward to another 20 years of giving back. The breakfast was sponsored by Bluegreen Corporation, which also donated a five-night stay in any of its resorts which was awarded at the event and raised additional funds for the Golden Bell Foundation The Boca Chamber believes that a quality education is instrumental to the success of the business community in all industries. The Golden Bell Education Foundation was created with the goal of providing grants for innova tive educational programs to local schools. More than 260 Boca Chamber members and guests attended the Golden Bell breakfast. The grant recipients included: A.D. Henderson University School, Addison Mizner Elementary, Boca Raton Elementary, Boca Raton Charter, Del Prado Elementary, Hammock Pointe Elementary, J.C. Mitchell elementary, Sandpiper Shores Elementary, Sunrise Park Elementary, Whispering Pines Elementary, Don Estridge High Tech Middle, Eagles Landing Middle, Loggers Run Middle, Omni Middle, A.D. Henderson High School, Boca Raton community High School, Olympic Heights High School, West Boca Raton Community High and the George Snow Scholarship Fund. In other business, the Chamber announced its October Membership Breakfast will be held Oct. 11 at Via Mizner Golf and Country Club, 6200 Boca Del Mar Drive, Boca Raton, starting at 7:45 a.m. The breakfast, sponsored by Boca Raton Regional Hospital, will include a presentation by Louise Morrell, M.D., Medical Director, Lynn Cancer Institute, Boca Raton Regional Hospital The Boca Raton Tribune COMMUNITY NEWS East/West Boca Raton, FL Career FAU Medical School Professor Robert E. Hinkley to RetireBOCA RATON Florida Atlantic Universitys Charles E. Schmidt College of Medicine has announced the retirement of Robert E. Hinkley, Ph.D., 69, associate dean of admissions and enrollment. He will step down at the end of this year. Hinkley joined the college in 2010 to champion the admissions and enrollment process of FAUs new medical school, recruiting and assembling 64 students in the inaugural class and 64 students in this years incoming class. Hinkley has worked in medical admissions and enrollment for more than 39 years. This year, we doubled the number of applications we received to 3,000 for 64 positions in our incoming class, and this is a testament to Dr. Hinkleys outstanding skills and experience, said David J. Bjorkman, M.D., M.S.P.H., dean of the Schmidt College of Medicine. He leaves a leg acy that puts students first and we are most grateful for his service and dedication to our new medical school and to medical education. Under Hinkleys leadership, the Schmidt College of Medicine received more than 1,500 applications for its inaugural class last year within a very condensed timeframe. The inaugural class represents all of the major colleges and universities in Florida as well as institutions around the nation such as Princeton, Johns Hopkins, Cornell, Vanderbilt, Brigham Young and Duke. Fifty-eight percent of the 64 students in this years class of 2016 are womenhigher than the national average of 49 percent. Some 13 percent of the class is Hispanic, 11 percent are Asian and 3 percent are AfricanAmerican. Although 75 percent of the class majored in traditional pre-med subjects, the class is also made up of students who have non-science majors such as Asian studies, philosophy, history and economics. Twelve of the class members have advanced degrees, including one student who is a postdoctoral fellow and holds an M.S. degree and a Ph.D. in pathobiology. It has been a privilege to work with an extraordinary group of individuals in the Schmidt College of Medicine and FAU, said Hinkley. After nearly 40 years of service to medical education I am retiring with the deepest of pride knowing that my work has helped a generation of students realize their dreams and ensure that our region will have an adequate and diverse physician workforce to serve our communities. Hinkley received a Lifetime Achievement Award from the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine in 2008, where he spent 17 years overseeing the medical admissions program there. He was also tapped for Iron Arrow in 1995, the highest honor attainable at the University of Miami. In addition to the senior administrative positions he has held during his career, he is an accomplished researcher who conducted National Institutes of Health-sponsored research for more than 20 years and received a Research Career Development Award from the NIH. Hinkley received his Ph.D. in comparative biochemistry and physiology from the University of Kansas in Lawrence, Kansas, and conducted his post-doctoral training in the Department of Anesthesia at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine in Chicago. He received his M.S. in biology and his B.S. in zoology from Tulane University in New Orleans, Louisiana. FAUs Charles E. Schmidt College of Medicine will begin the search for Hinkleys replacement in the coming months.Community Newssee pics pg.

Criminal Justice Commission Gets $1 Million in Federal GrantsThe Palm Beach County Criminal Justice Commission was recently awarded two federal grants from the United States Department of Justice totaling nearly $1 million. CJC received a FY-2011 Justice and Mental Health Collaboration Program: Planning and Implementation Grant of $249,955 which will enable the Juvenile Drug Court to increase support of cooccurring mental and substance abuse disorders. This will increase public safety by facilitating collaboration among the criminal justice, juvenile justice and mental health and substance abuse systems.

It was written by CJC intern Jyota Snyder, a former student at Florida Atlantic University, under the direction of CJC Program Manager Becky Walker. An award of $750,000 from the FY2012 Second Chance Act Adult Offender Re-entry Program for Planning and Demonstration: Implementation Grant program begins Oct. 1, 2012 and continues until Sept. 30, 2013.

The grant provides for comprehensive services to men and women incarcerated by the Florida Department of Correc tions in certain re-entry prisons. Services include case management, education, substance abuse treatment, family reunifica tion and housing to reduce the recidivism rate in Palm Beach County. Craig Spatara is the program manager and author of the grant, which was awarded Aug. 28. This is the second grant CJC has received for re-entry from the U.S. Department of Justice. CJC was created in 1988 and has an established history of building strong partnerships to improve the criminal justice system in the county. The four components of the Criminal Justice Commission include crime prevention, law enforcement, courts, and corrections.

Jerry MossWest Delray Man Dies After One-Car Accident, says PBSODELRAY BEACH A motorist died Saturday, Sept. 15, at Delray Beach Medical Center following a single-car accident at 9701 West Atlantic Ave., says a report from the Palm Beach County Sheriffs Office. PBSO said David Armstrong, 82, of 5190 Las Verdes Circle, was unresponsive when responders reached him at the scene. The report says he was pronounced dead at the hospital. Investigators said Armstrong was driving west on West Atlantic Avenue west of Lyons Road just after 10:40 a.m. when he apparently lost consciousness and veered off the road. He traveled through a drainage ditch and into a private parking lot at 9701 West Atlantic Ave. before knocking over a mailbox and coming to rest against a tree, says the report. Rabid Raccoon Attacks Dog in Western Palm Beach CountyResults from the Florida State Lab have confirmed a raccoon that attacked a dog on Caloosa Boulevard near Bee Line Highway in northwestern Palm Beach County was ra bid. In this instance, a tan and white, 65-pound dog named Champ was attacked and bitten. Animal Care and Control was notified and sent the deceased raccoon for testing. Champ sustained bites on the leg and was treated by a local veterinarian with a rabies booster shot and antibiotics. Health officials said all citizens in Palm Beach County should be aware that rabies is present in the wild animal population and domestic animals are at risk if not vaccinated. The public is asked to maintain a heightened awareness that rabies is active in this area. Animal Care and Control has placed informational flyers in the neighborhood where the bite took place. The following advice is issued: Keep rabies vaccinations up to date for all pets. Keep your pets under direct supervision so they do not come in contact with wild animals. If your pet is bitten by a wild animal, seek veterinary assistance for the animal immediately and contact Animal Care & Control at 561-233-1200. Call your local animal control agency to remove any stray animals from your neighborhood. Spay or neuter your pets to help reduce the number of unwanted pets that may not be properly cared for or regularly vaccinated. Do not handle, feed, or unintentionally attract wild animals with open garbage cans or litter. Never adopt wild animals or bring them into your home. Teach children never to handle unfamiliar animals, wild or domestic, even if they appear friendly.

18 Edition 115 September 20, 2012 through September 26, 2012www.bocaratontribune.com Clint Eastwood may be Americas favorite crusty old curmudgeon. Like John Wayne before him, Eastwood is staunchly right-wing politically. In his case liberal-leaning fans forgive him because he is such an American icon, and he does have a few progressive ideas. Eastwood uses his icon status to good advantage in Trouble with the Curve, directed by his young buddy Robert Lorenz, who is making his debut as director after serving as Eastwoods producing partner and first assistant director since 1994. Eastwood is 82-years-old, but he is still tall, erect and very feisty. In Trouble with the Curve he surrounds himself with much younger players, including Amy Adams, Justin Timberlake, Matthew Lilliard and his own son, Scott Eastwood. Amy Adams, who is 38 but looks much younger, plays Mickey, the daughter of Eastwoods character, Gus Lobel, created by debut screenwriter Randy Brown. Gus is a longtime baseball scout for the Atlanta Braves. He is a workaholic widower whose wife died when Mickey was only 6. Mickey has grown up to be an overachieving attorney who stands a good chance to become a partner in her law firm. Gus is a very stubborn man who has been a largely absent father figure. He is fiercely independent, but lately he has been having problems with the eyesight. After a visit to the eye doctor, Gus learns he has macular degeneration and perhaps glaucoma. This is not good for a man who makes his living judging the fine points of a young players ability. So, to cut to the chase, after much grumping and protesting Gus allows Mickey to be his eyes at a North Carolina high school baseball game where the star player, Bo Gentry, is a hotshot power-hitting. Also scouting the game is Johnny Flana gan (Justin Timberlake), a once promising pitcher who never made it in the bigs but settled as scout for the Red Sox. Gus grudgingly admires his young rival, and actually encourages him to check out his daughter. Its pretty easy to see where all this is going in this old-fashioned meller drammer with a dash of romance on the side. You have your stock villains like the cocky, racist hitter, the back-stabbing law colleague and the equally back-stabbing young director of Braves scouts (Matthew Lilliard). What makes it worth watching is the pure charm of Amy Adams and Justin Timberlake and their simmering chemistry. As for crusty Clint, of course he is lovable in the long run, and everything is right with the world. Play ball! Two and a half years Richard Gere Makes One Sleek Bad Boy Richard Gere has been a very bad boy. To be more concise, Richard Geres character in Arbitrage is a very badly-behaving person, and he gets worse in the progression of this white-collar thriller debut, written and directed by NYU Film School graduate Nicholas Jarecki. Coming on the heels of Cosmopolis, Arbitrage is another timely reminder of the nasty stuff that goes on as a matter of course around Wall Street. Gere is Robert Miller, founder and CEO of a hedge fund bearing his name. The story opens on the eve of Millers 60th birthday. He is at the top of his form. His brainy, loyal daughter Brooke (Brit Marling) is poised to take over after he retires. His adoring wife Ellen (Susan Sarandon) is the cream of philanthropic society. Arbitrage means taking advantages of price differences between markets. In theory one can make a risk-free profit at zero cost. However, there is a human equation involved. Hedge fund managers are supposed to adhere to the highest moral and ethical standards. Major institutions stake their resources and reputations on them. As the Bernard Madoff scandal proved, hedge funds can be a very risky business indeed and downright criminal if the guy at the top is a liar and thief. Robert Miller is not a thief, but he is skating on the thin ice of moral and financial crisis. A bad call has put half of his hedge fund in jeopardy, and he has been robbing Peter to pay Paul to cover up for his bad judgment. With typical arrogance of a tycoon, Miller feels he is above conventional morality. He has been having an affair with a pretty young art dealer (Laetitia Casta) and promoting her career. One reckless decision by Miller will result in tragedy for one human life and the ruination of Millers career and company. As the web of deception tightens on Miller, he reaches out to an unlikely young ally named Jimmy Grant (Nate Parker, perfectly cast), and in turn Jimmy will be put in jeopardy. Breathing down Millers trail is bra zen, wily police detective Michael Bryer (Tim Roth), who is not averse to pulling off a few tricks of his own to snare the perpetra tor. Early in his career Richard Gere played a lot of idealized young romantic heroes. Now that he has silvery hair and a creased face he has more resonance and depth as an actor. This is one of his best performances ever. The always-entertaining Tim Roth affects a skeptical combative stance and a tough New York accent for his bullying detective. Susan Sarandon saves her best for the last as Millers forgiving, loyal, but quietly raging wife Ellenfinally at the end of her patience. There is nothing novel or groundbreaking about Arbitrage, but it does generate a fair amount of suspense and impassioned performances all around. Sadly, the end has the ironic ring of truth. Good guys dont always win and bad guys dont always lose. Nicolas Jarecki is a bright young talent to watch. Three stars Seasonally inspired cooking brings new items to this fine restaurants menu. We are pleased to report on: Thin flatbreads included an artichoke and goat cheese with spinach, balsamic onions and roasted peppersdelicious and enough for two as was a spicy chipotle shrimp with grilled pineapple, feta cheese and roasted pablano peppersnot too spicy but with a delightful taste and aftertaste. They also feature a garlic chicken, ripe plum tomato plus the fine steak and cremini mushroom flatbread we enjoyed this past fall. Appetizers, 8 in number, gave us a chance to sample beef chili with black beans and cilantro sour cream a strong dish with generous portions of beef and a nice bite. Organic eda mame soy beans were hot and tasty with or without the green tea salt garnish. Unfortunately, the goat cheese ravioli had mushy pasta envelopes for the cheese and was swimming in a weak tomato broth not their finest moment. However, the lump crab, roasted shrimp and spinach stuffed mushrooms were a complex dish with each ingredient perfectly presented very, very nice! The Ahi tuna taste of sliced tuna could not be enhanced with the cucumber salad or the wasa bi not typical bright tuna taste here. Seasons 52 have both 4 small and 5 entre salads on the menu. We tasted several in the past and found all to be fresh, crisp and containing a variety of tasty ingredients. As 6 dishes were listed as fish and seafood, we tested the grilled jumbo shrimp cavatappi pasta excellent shrimp perfectly prepared with cara melized garlic, organic tomatoes, fresh broccoli and peppers. The cedar plank roasted salmon, a large portion with taste and texture was complimented with roasted carrot slices, red bliss potatoes and fresh asparagus a winner! Three other listings were tested in the past and all were fine choices at that time. Last review, of the 5 items listed as poultry and meat, we had tried and enjoyed all but the wood roasted pork tenderloin. With its soft herb polenta, cremini mushrooms, broccoli and shallot Dijon glaze, it is a pleasure to recommend this very tender and tasty meat dish. Seasons 52 is noted for its selection of classic dessert mini indulgences individual servings of such classics as: Chocolate peanut butter mousse Mocha macchiato Blueberry cheesecake Pecan pie with vanilla mousse Key lime pie Belgian chocolate rocky road Raspberry chocolate chip cannoli Carrot cake This review we sampled 6 of these treats all superb examples of the dessert Chefs art. A final note. Seasons 52 is located at 2300 NW Executive Center Drive (Off Glades Road) in Boca Raton (561-998-9952). It has an extensive drink and wine menu and is open 7 days for luncheon from 11:30AM, dinner to 10PM (11PM on Fridays and Saturdays).

This is a significant increase in the numbers of those who suffer of type 2 diabetes, as well as there is a significant change in the outline of this population with more young people including those who are skinny being diag nosed with type 2 diabetes. Other surprising findings were: women have 1.3 more chances of being hospitalized due to complications of diabetes than men; and those who are considered per-diabetics with ages ranging from 20 years and older have reached 65 milion. Currently type 2 diabetes has become also a problem of the younger adults, according with the National Institute of Health 15 percent of the of those suffering of type 2 diabetes are not obese. Visceral Fat and Diabetes In those patients considered skinny the diabetes develops secondary to the accumulation of fat in the abdominal cavity, around the internal organs. This pattern of fat accumulation leads to the production of inflammatory substances that affect the liver and the pancreas decreasing the persons sensitivity to the insulin, and leading to an increase in the risk for type 2 diabetes. In these cases, the person appears to be skinny, but in reality their body is behaving as if he/she was obese. The lack of physical exercises and the battle with the diets to control the body weight also lead to an increased risk of diabetes. The regular practice of moderate physical exercises is essential for the maintenance of the glucose levels, causing an increase of up to 20 times in the absorption of glucose when compared to those who do not exercise. Another important fact is that regular physical exercise is the only way to burn the fat accumulated in among the organs. When you diet without exercising you primarily burn muscle tissue once this is the most available form of energy. When you stop the diet you re-gain the weight, but now you re-gain that weight as fat. Muscle mass is essential to assist in abdominal fat burning, and helps to regulate the glucose levels in the blood. In plain English: diet without physical exercise increases the risk for type 2 diabetes. Another important factor is the stress. The frequent deadlines and multitasking required in our daily life lead to an increase of the hormone known as cortisol to assist in the increase of our levels of energy. The problem is that the cortisol temporarily increases the levels of glucose. If you are constantly under pressure, living a stressed life, there is a constant release of cortisol leading to a chronically elevated level of glucose in the blood, and consequently to an accumula tion of visceral fat. Scientists confirmed that young adults with family history of at least one person diagnosed with type 2 diabetes are at a higher risk. Prevention Type 2 diabets is non-reversible, but what is called per-diabetes is not. The biggest problem is that more than 90 percent of the pre-diabetics dont even know they are sick. Visit your family physician every year for check-ups and maintenance. Eat a healthy diet, mainly from fresh and home cooked foods. Avoid fastfoods, choose olive oil over salad dressings, avoid fried foods, eat more whole wheat grains, and avoid processed foods once the majority of them contain high-fructose corn syrup, which is rapidly transformed in visceral fat. Save the sweets and candies for special occa sions. Give preference to fresh fruits and veg etables, white meats and fish. Exercise daily at a moderate level of effort, a brisk walk, Pilates, yoga, weight training, swimming, cross training, just choose what you feel more comfortable with. Make small changes of habits daily to allow your body to adapt little-by-little. Live happy, live healthy. Healthy Living Dr. Marcia Perretto MedinaSkinny and Diabetic: How is it Possible?

She has written ten books on beauty, diet and health. I Hate My Bloated StomachCan You Get Rid of an Uncomfortable Bloated Stomach? Its no secret that as we age it can become more difficult to enjoy a meal without suffering digestive discomfort. For every 10 years of life the pancreas produces fewer digestive enzymes and, on top of that, todays modern diets are largely void of natural plant enzymes. This lack of natural enzymes requires the body to work harder, thereby straining our internal organs and digestive system. A bloated stomach can have several causes and is not to be confused with Belly Fat, which are fatty cells that you cant get rid of it without losing weight Oleda Baker C.E.O. Oleda & Company, Inc. through diet and exercise. A bloated stomach can usually be flattened..if you can figure out what is causing the discomfortheres the story: Stomach discomfort is when the abdomen feels full and tight, even before eating. It most often occurs in the small intestine rather than the stomach, as most people believe. The most common cause is irregular digestion that produces gas at a higher rate than normal, often caused by:. At the beginning of a health diet, a sudden increase in fiber from vegetables, fruits and beans could cause discomfort. If this occurs, simply ease up on these foods and reintroduce them more gradually. If you are eating late at night, or drinking too much alcohol, it will encourage the build up of acid. The digestive system works more effectively when you are up and about for at least 3 hours, not after eating before retiring and lying flat. A large meal can also cause discomfort as the stomach becomes distended and certain foods produce more gas than others. Intolerance to some foods can cause abdominal discomfort Digestion is a series of chemical reac tions that break down food into components from which we derive energy. The remaining material is waste and is eliminated through the intestinal tract. Some of those wastes are gases that are normally managed easily by the elasticity of the intestinal canal. Sometimes, however, large pockets of gases stretch the gut wall past its comfortable elastic limit and we feel uncomfortable by an expansion in the abdomen. It may even become difficult to fit into your jeans. There is only one way to identify food intolerance and thats by the process of elimination one food at a time. Once you or your doctor has determined there is no medical condition causing the excessive gas, you can begin eliminating foods that may be causing the symptoms. Continue to eat as you normally do, but eliminate one gas producing food for at least a week. If there is no lessening of gas, put that food back in the diet and go on to eliminate another one. Follow this procedure until all gas producing foods are tested. Experience tells us that beans (all types), milk, and milk products may be the worst offenders in causing gas. Other troublesome foods include onions, celery, carrots, raisins, apricots, prune juice, wheat products, and Brussels sprouts. A well balanced intestinal enzyme builder supplement could help create a more comfortable and flatter stomach. This balance should contain a high amount, and a variety, of enzymes like Ginger Root, Fennel Seed, Clove Powder, Simethicone, Peppermint Leaves Ext, Acid Stable Protease, as well as other nec essary ingredients, that address the various types of food: protein, fats, starches, dairy, plant, vegetable material and sugar.

22 Edition 115 September 20, 2012 through September 26, 2012www.bocaratontribune.com The Boca Raton Tribune MUNICIPAL East/West Boca Raton, FL THE CITIZENS VOICEBy Al Zucaro Municipal NewsPower Corrupts and Absolute Power Corrupts AbsolutelyA few weeks ago, I reported that the president of Bocas Chamber of Commerce announced one of the chambers main political objectives for this upcoming year is to change the voting pattern of the city from the current March voting cycle to a proposed November cycle. Well unbeknownst at the time is that there actually may be an unholy alliance between this objective and sitting council members desiring to accomplish such a change. Such a charter change may actually have merit on the basis that a November election cycle would result in a larger voter turnout and in cost savings to the city. These objec tives still seem meritorious but voices within the city now suggest reasons to believe these objectives may be smoke screens for a far more nefarious objective, to wit: extending the terms of the current city council for an additional eight month period. Initially dismissed as improbable, it seems that there may be actual reason for concern. According to sources who wish to remain anonymous, this plan is already a done deal. Well how is that possible? A review of the Citys Charter and Code of Ordinances reflects specific areas of reference with regards to elections. City Charter section 5.05(a) specifically states that the regular election shall be held on the second Tuesday of March. The next Boca Raton election is scheduled for March, 2014 as no council seats are in play for 2013. City Charter section 3.03 specifically states the dates for elections to be the calendar month of March for all elements including the initial vote, any runoff vote and the swearing in ceremony of the ballot winners. The Citys Code of Ordinances further reveals a specific provision defining a March election cycle. Section 6.6 states that the regular city election shall be held on the date prescribed in section 5.05 of the Charter. Charter section 5.05 is unequivocal to the March voting cycle. So whats the concern? With all these sections pointing to a March and with the consistent use of the term shall (mandatory language in legal construction) there should be no concern that the Charters election provisions are in place unless and until there is a vote of the people to change the charter and then change the code. Correct? Well maybe not. City Charter section 7.01 undermines the previous charter protections. This sec tion outlines two ways that the City Charter can be amended. The first is Initiation by ordinance where the council may propose amendment to any part or all of this Charter with limited exception. Upon passage of such an ordinance, the ordinance shall be placed to a vote of the electors at the next general elec tion or at a special election called for this specific purpose. The second is Initiation by petition where the electors may propose charter amendments by presenting a petition signed by qualified voters equal to at least 10% of the total voters registered in the last regular city election. So, we now find legislative support for the statement that changing the cycle is a done deal. An ordinance passes with a simple ma jority vote of the council. At least three current city council members would benefit from such a change and these same three members know that the antics of the recent past put them clearly in harms way for the old adage of throw the bums out. Begs the question..Why? Speculation is that March 2014 offers citizens the opportunity to change the mode, temperament and direction of the city council. At least three seats, the mayor and two council seats, are subject to the vote. The powers behind the scene may be fearful that if given the opportunity the electors will disrupt the cozy relationships that currently exist between the majority of city council members and the developers whose objective it is to change the face of Boca Raton forever. The stakes are high and completing the task of vesting development rights is a strategic objective that must be accomplished. A new council ma jority may disrupt this. The language of section 7.01 cited above is tricky language when comparing the two methods that allow for charter change. In the initiation by ordinance, the electors may get to vote on the change at the next general election held within the city or at a special election called for such purpose. This could actually be as early as November, 2012. While in the Initiation by petition, there is reference to when the electors would vote, to wit: no sooner than 60 days after certification or no later than 3 months from that date. This nuance may not result in the same meaning when focused upon specifically or in a timely opportunity for the electors to vote at all. Even more disturbing is language limiting the Initiation by petition section whereas, before a petition drive can even begin, the city council shall, by ordinance, determine a standard form of petition for the full text of any proposed charter amendment to be attached. There is language requiring the city council to act on such an ordinance but no guidance or limitation on obstructive ac tions the council might attempt to thwart the will of the electors. There also is no equivalent filtering process for the charter amendment language that the city council may propose within the Initiation by ordinance section. One favorable note is that the signature requirement for a charter amendment by petition is 10% of the qualified voters registered for the last local election whereas the signature requirement of an initiative by petition of an ordinance is higher at 15%. Interesting. Hence, as suggested above, power corrupts and here in Boca Raton absolute power over the will of the people may have already corrupted absolutely. Al Zucaro

24 Edition 115 September 20, 2012 through September 26, 2012www.bocaratontribune.com Minorities and Politics: A Lesson in Inclusion and Class WarfareThe cultural face of America today is not what it was a half-century ago. No longer would anyone give a serious thought to forcing a Black man to sit at the back or a bus, or turn him away from a lunch counter. The continuing and growing impact of minorities in this nation of how they are and have been treated by the Caucasian public in general and by the two major political parties specifically is food for serious thought by those who look to shape the future of America. That shaping is happening right now. The USA has a president with Black roots. Hispanics are serving in high office consider Floridas own U.S. Senator Marco Rubio. And women have served in positions as high as sec retary of state. Traditionally, minorities seem drawn to Democratic ranks, though even that is changing. David Wasserman, an elec tion analyst for the non-partisan HY PERLINK http://cookpolitical.com/ \t _blank Cook Political Report, cites the rise of women and minorities in the Democratic Party, but that, he notes, is accompanied by so-called white flight by former party faithful. Democrats have always stood for inclusion while Republicans appear stand-offish. In a nutshell, the Republican Party seems to offer little enticement to Blacks and Hispanics. The GOP is still seen as a basically white-only organiza tion. (Dr. Condoleezza Rice is a glaring exception.) On a national level, Democrats do a better job of appealing to women and minority voters because this segment of the electorate sees themselves reflected in the party mirror. But in the U.S. House, the party is increasingly anchored in urban and suburban areas based on how congressional districts are drawn, ceding almost all of rural America to the GOP and raising doubts about Democrats ability to win a House majority when they are so geographically restricted. Political correctness almost demands a conciliatory attitude toward minorities from both parties. Republicans choke on political correctness, and they dont play well with minorities. Also, during the 2012 campaign, the GOP has been accused of igniting a War on Women, as if to exclude that so-called minority from its ranks. The broader appeal of the Democratic Party to women and minorities is good news for President Barack Obama in his quest for re-election because they represent two-thirds of his coalition. (The other major bloc is young voters). For Republicans, their congressional districts are generally drawn for white lawmakers, representing white constituencies, self-restricting the level of diversity in their districts and the lawmakers that represent those districts. So, while Republicans may have used the 2012 redistricting process to solidify their grip on a number of previously more competitive districts that helps them hold their current House majority, the lack of diversity in the GOP makes it increasingly harder to win on a national level. The bottom line is this: AfricanAmericans, Hispanics and others not of the Caucasian race currently make up 20 to 30 percent of the population. But if Obama can count on that group to give him a third of his total ballots in November, how difficult could it be to tally another 20 percent or so from the rest of the party and win re-election? This brings us to another group not necessarily a minority, but definitely an endangered species the middle class. This year, that segment has been slammed with soaring gasoline prices, high food and energy costs and the horrific impact of the housing market downturn. Add to that 23 million jobless and underemployed most of them middle classers -and you have a voting bloc thats angry, frustrated and in desperate search for the truth. Unfortunately, neither party has delivered absolute truth. Republican and Democrat candidates seem bent on destroying each other while forgetting to throw life preservers to the sinking middle class. Democrats traditionally the party associated with higher taxes are trying to throw that yoke to the GOP. At the same time, President Obama is sidestepping his dismal performance in office to focus on non-issues such as the killing of Osama bin Laden and Mitt Romneys failure to release his tax records. Both parties promises to buttress the floundering middle class leave ordinary folk baffled and unclear about the future. Worse, it sets the stage for class warfare between the rich and the less-than-rich -the ones enduring the slings and arrows of outrageous politics inundated with half-truths and uncertainty that can only ignite envy and jealousy toward the wealthy. Right now, America is under attack throughout the Middle East. Democrats seem unconcerned about these radical terrorists as well as class warfare at home. So, in the end, it is up to Republicans to pay attention to the needs of the middle class, and stem the likelihood that fighting in the streets of the USA wont follow the anti-US fighting in dozens of nations around the world.Business Advent Lutheran Church 300 East Yamato Road Boca Raton, FL 33431 561-395-3632 www.adventboca.org First Church Of Christ, Scientist 566 W Palmetto Park Road Boca Raton, FL 33432 561-391-7689 Armation Lutheran Church 9465 Glades Road Boca Raton, FL 33434 561-483-6004 First United Methodist Church www.fumcbocaraton.org 625 NE Mizner Blvd. Boca Raton, FL 33432 561-395-1244 Ascension Catholic Church 7250 N Federal Hwy Boca Raton, FL 33487 561-997-5486 Friendship Baptist Church 1422 NE 2nd Court Boca Raton, FL 33432 561-395-6871 Assembly of God Hispanic Church Centro Cristiano Familiar 21121 Oriole Country Rd Boca Raton, FL 33433 561-746-8626 Frontline Christian Center Olympic Heights High Schl 20101 Lyons Rd Boca Raton FL 33434 561-826-0404 www.frontlinechristiancenter.com Ayts Chayim Messianic Synagogue 600 W.

Just as it is important in your personal life to establish good relationships, so is it important for the life of your business. Distrust, disrespect, secrets, gossiping and the like shakes the foundation. We cant be all things to all people but we can be team players. Just as in families, the standards are set at the top and filter down, so is it in business. It all starts at the top! When I walk into an office and the receptionist is cold, unfriendly or downright nasty, I get a clue the boss probably is, too. The true relationship between an organization and its clients actually starts after the transaction is completed. How well the relationship proceeds is determined by how it is managed by the organization. Ethics and honesty play a major role in rela tionship development. Always remember, it is more cost effective to maintain existing clients than it is to find new ones to replace them. Retaining your customer base is always a priority. Good relationships with clients should not be underestimated. In a selling situation, for example, it used to be that the organiza tion and buyer sat on opposite sides of the fence. Today, this has largely changed to a partnering situation between buyer and seller working together to achieve their mutual goals. Sellers today recognize that a buyers failure with their product/service will reflect negatively on their performance. Therefore, it behooves the seller to take an active role in helping the buyer select the right product the right equipment, the right style. Before the seller starts a relationship with the buyer, she/he must understand what the buyer wants in the relationship. Buyers want their sellers to be team members and have a high degree of ethics and integrity. They want that comfort zone in the relationship, in knowing that the seller will do as promised. The relationship cannot progress unless the seller is able to be a problem solver, provide the buyer with service, and satisfy the buyers perceived value. The seller can ensure a lasting relationship by trying to make sure that each and every transaction will be mutually beneficial. Strange as it may seem, sometimes the best way for the seller to establish this trust and build a relationship is to solve a problem when she/he foresees one that the buyer may have with his/her product/service; late delivery, merchandise not received as ordered or any area that the company has not performed as promised. It is important to understand that the person wanting your product/service really wants more than that. They want you to be a team member. They are hoping to do business with an ethical person and one who has integrity. They want to feel secure in knowing that you will do and deliver whatever was promised. Statistically, more than 50 percent of marriages end in the divorce courts. We are living in a me first society; we want immediate success, instant gratification, all this, without being committed to making things work! Maintaining a successful rela tionship, both personally and in business, requires a willingness to work at it. Excerpts from the book, The Real World Guide to Fashion Selling & Management, Gerald J.

27 Edition 115 for news 24/7 go to bocaratontribune.com September 20, 2012 through September 26, 2012www.bocaratontribune.com Creating Energy Through TeamworkA revolution is taking place in the world of business. Around the world, companies are starting to restructure around cross-functional teams. Managers are capitalizing on a basic fact of human behavior: People are more creative and more productive when they work together. For some business leaders, this idea of worker synergy and productivity seems new, but actually it has been around for a while. In fact, several thousand years ago, the Bible stated it this way: Two can accomplish more than twice as much as one, for the results can be much better. If one falls, the other pulls him up; but if a man falls when he is alone, hes in trouble (Ecclesiastes 4:9-10). However, just putting a group of people together does not make a team. They must learn how to relate to each other and work together effectively. They must be trained in team-building skills. If you are a part of a team at work, or if youd like to increase the productivity of yourself and those you work with, I suggest you discuss and agree to practice these six energy-creating principles: Emphasize the best in each other. People blossom with affirmation. They will not flourish, however, under constant criticism.A good guideline is to strive to give more strokes than pokes. Every time you succeed at doing this, you increase the value of the team. Never try to control each other. Many people like to control what is being done and those who are doing it, but exerting extreme control is generally counterproductive. There are many ways to play the control game: Interrogator -controlling through questions.Intimidator controlling through anger.Martyr controlling through guilt.Aloof controlling through apathy and/or passivity. Encourage the free flow of ideas. Never try to create or solicit ideas and evaluate them at the same time. To do so will dry up team creativity.Let the participants have fun, and join in it yourself!Value everyones opinion, even when you disagree with them. Replace competition with coopera tion.To build a team, you need to foster a cooperative spirit, not a competitive environment. Your competition is found at another business, not in your office. Help every person and every department to see and understand the big pic ture your overall goals so they will realize and appreciate how their part helps the whole company. Give away what you have... and watch it multiply!This is a spiritual law that really works. Whatever you need more of energy, ideas, authority whatever you have and desire to increase, learn to share it with others on your team.You will inevitably receive more back. Yield the credit to others. Remember that youre a team! Rick Warren is the author of the highly acclaimed, best-selling book, The PurposeDrive Life,which has been translated into many languages and sold throughout the world. It affirms the importance of having a carefully considered, clearly expressed pur pose to guide everyday life.FAITHBy Rick Warren DIVORCE FLORIDA STYLEBy Mike Gora ColumnistsThe Boca Raton Tribune 561-208-6029 Michael H. 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 ShaftQ. I think that the judge in my case is about to give me the shaft. My case was set for trial a couple of days ago. Everything was ready to go, and I was looking forward to getting my divorce case behind me. It had been dragging. While I was getting temporary alimony and child support, my husband and I were constantly bickering over property distribution, child raising and other things. My lawyer, who also does some criminal cases, was called to an emergency hearing before a Federal Mag istrate in Fort Lauderdale on a drug case the day before my trial was supposed to begin. Through his secretary he left a message with the judicial assistant for my divorce judge, saying that because of the emergency he was asking for a continuance. During the drug case, the magistrate came into court and said the divorce judge had left a message on his answering machine that said, My lawyer better call him immediately if he ever wanted to practice before him again. My lawyer said he tried to call the judge twice, got a machine and left messages. The next day the divorce judge entered an order continuing the case, but suspended my alimony and income deduction order. My lawyer does not know what to do. Can I get my judge removed from the case? How does that work? Will there be a hearing? A. Your lawyer should file a motion to disqualify the judge as soon as possible, as the rules require filing immediately after the offending judicial conduct. The motion goes before the same divorce judge you are complaining about, but his or her decision may be appealed. The question is whether the motion demonstrates a well-founded fear in you that you will not receive a fair trial at the hands of the trial judge. The court must consider whether his or her actions would place a reasonable, prudent person in fear of not receiving an impartial trial. The trial judge must decide the motion on the face of the allegations in the motion, taken as true. There will be no hearing. The Florida Supreme Court has ruled that a trial judge may be disqualified because of prejudice toward an attorney if the prejudice is of such a degree that it adversely affects the client. When a judge signals a predisposition about a case, a partys fears about fairness at an upcoming hearing are well founded. As the divorce judge entered an order against you, after threatening your attorney, based on your lawyers legitimate request, and took away your alimony without a motion being filed or a hearing, the judge should disqualify himself.

29 Edition 115 for news 24/7 go to bocaratontribune.com September 20, 2012 through September 26, 2012www.bocaratontribune.com SportsThe Boca Raton Tribune SportsJohn McCormack Signs Multi-Year Contract Extension with FAUBoca Raton, FL Florida Atlantic University Head Baseball Coach John McCormack has been rewarded for leading the program to two Sun Belt Conference (SBC) regular-season championships and a NCAA regional appearance with a four-year contract extension. The contact begins with the current 2012-13 athletic year. Coach McCormack espouses all the values we look for in our head coaches, said Pat Chun, FAUs Director of Athletics. He is a great teacher and mentor. Above all else, he is a good person. Chun continued, John is the best baseball coach in our league and one of the best in the nation. We are fortunate to have him serve our student-athletes and our great university. We are proud of what the baseball team has accomplished under Johns leadership and feel this commitment goes a long way to ensuring our future success. McCormack has won 131 games in his four seasons as the Owls head coach, and has a 69-47 mark in SBC games the top winning percentage (.595) of any program during that coaching span. Extending my contract is a valida tion that we are representing FAU at a high level, both in the classroom and on the field, said McCormack. I would like to thank President Saunders, Pat Chun (Athletics Director) and Melissa Dawson (Senior Associate Athletic Director) for the commitment they made to my family and I. The 2012 FAU team captured the leagues regular-season title, with a 19-8 league record, and opened the sea son by sweeping the University of Ala bama of the Southeastern Conference. The first triumph in the series gave Mc Cormack his 100th coaching victory. In 2011, McCormack guided FAU to its first season series victory over the University of Miami since 1984. Then, the 2010 team captured the SBC reg ular-season title and advanced to the championship game of the NCAA Division I Gainesville regional. Before becoming head coach in 2009, McCormack served as an assistant on the Florida Atlantic coaching staff since 1991, spending 11 seasons as associate head coach. The baseball program has had 14-consecutive winning seasons and produced 89 players that have played professionally during Mc Cormacks tenure on the coaching staff, including two who are currently playing in the major leagues. FAU is a special place. I am blessed to be a part of such a dynamic university, said McCormack. I would like to thank my assistant coaches and players, past and present. Our successes would not have been possible without their hard work and dedica tion. FAU Faces Crimson Tide in Showdown in AlabamaThe Florida Atlantic football team will face their highest-ranked opponent in the programs short history on Saturday. After falling this past week to No. 7 Georgia, 56-20, the Owls finish up their back-to-back slate of extremely tough road games against top-ranked and Southeastern Conference opponents when they face the consensus number-one team in the land, the Ala bama Crimson Tide. Theyre just efficient, theyre a typical (head coach Nick) Saban team, said coachCarl Pelini. They dont beat themselves, they dont make mistakes, they dont miss assignments, they dont drop balls, they dont fumble, and (Saban) makes the right reads. Theyre not real intricate, but they just execute. Alabama has won their first three games by a combined score of 128-14. Last week, they defeated SEC West rival Arkansas at the Razorbacks home stadium a team ranked 10th in the preseason by the score of 52-0. The Crimson Tides ranking is the highest of any FBS opponent that the Owls have ever faced. That distinction was previously held by No. 6 USF, on Oc tober 6, 2007. FAU does bring some momentum into Saturday: playing even with Georgia for a quarter and half (it was a 14-14 game during the second quarter), and for a time, quieting down 92,000+ fans at Sanford Stadium. Pelini believes this is something to build on. My biggest message to our players is it doesnt matter what `they do, it matters what we do, he said. Thats something I can point to. Look what happens when we do what were supposed to do, we can be pretty good. Anytime you can have that suc cess against a good team, its a good learning lesson for our guys. But by no means should they be satisfied. Pelini also was very complimentary of quarterback Graham Wilberts play. So far this season, the redshirt senior has completed 68 percent of his passes, and ranks fourth in the Sun Belt Conference in passing efficiency (143.6) and seventh passing yards per game (189.7). Graham is a smart guy, hes like having a coach on the field, said Pelini. He understands this offense. (Offensive coordinator) Brian (Wrights) passing game is really `take what they give you; understanding the weaknesses of the different coverages you see. Thats perfect for Graham because hes so smart and analytical. Hes out there, not making bad reads, and he knows where to go with the football. Thats 90 percent the battle with this offense. Strikers Fail To Gain Ground In Atlanta LossThe Fort Lauderdale Strikers (9W-8T-10L) fell to the Atlanta Silverbacks (6W-8T-12L) by a final of 1-0 on Saturday, Sept. 15. The gamewinning goal came from Atlanta forward Matt Horth in the 11th minute of the match. The Strikers remain in fifth place in the NASL standings despite the loss. Fort Lauderdale completes their regular season schedule on Sunday, Sept. 23, against FC Edmonton. The Strikers started the match with a few early chances, but failed to directly challenge Atlanta goalkeeper Joe Nasco. Then, in the 11th minute, a turnover near midfield put the ball on the feet of Lucas Paulini. The Atlanta midfielder turned and found forward Matt Horth who was streaking near the top right corner of the penalty area. Instead of shooting toward the far post, Horth placed his shot low and just inside the near post to beat a flatfooted Glaeser. Coming out of halftime, the Strikers were able to maintain some pressure on the Silverbacks. In the 52nd minute the Strikers put the ball in the net, but Darnell King was ruled to be in an offside position. The next best chance for Fort Lauderdale came in the 61st minute when defender Lance Laing sent a long ball toward the Atlanta net. The ball went over the head of Nasco and bounced just wide of the goal. In the 74th minute, Fort Lauderdales Alfonso Motagalvan was issued a yellow card, followed by a red card for dissent after a foul called on a Striker in the Atlanta penalty area. The 10-man Strikers were able to produce perhaps their best chance of the game in the 90th minute on a half-volley attempt by second half substitution Scott Lorenz, but it failed to find the back of the net. The Strikers will travel to Canada to play their final regular season game against FC Edmonton on Sunday, Sept. 23, at 4:05pm EDT.
