For others, BHH means a backpack filled with food for the weekend for children. Still others associate BHH with limited financial assistance to pay rent or utility bills. However, its stated mission is to break the cycle of dependence. A recent $100,000 grant from The Jim Moran Foundation, along with support from The Salah Foundation and The Hagen Family Foundation, will allow BHH to take a major step forward in empowering clients to become self-sufficient. The new Job Readiness Catering Program will serve carefully screened and selected clients who will earn a small stipend while gaining skills and experience in the food service industry. At the conclusion of the threemonth program, the clients will be guided in their search for employment with the many restaurants and country clubs in our area, many of whom are continuously hiring. Our founder, Jim Moran, believed everyone deserved the chance to be successful, said Melanie Burgess, executive director, The Jim Moran Foundation. For those who are hungry and hurting, the Boca Helping Hands Job Readiness Program will offer a pathway to success through hands-on training, stipends, and connections to job opportunities. In January, the first class of 12 clients will begin their journey to gainful employment. During Phase 1, participants will learn life and social skills. The 12-hours of classroom instruction will be taught at BHH by faculty from Palm Beach State College. During Phase 2, also held at BHHs Remillard Family Resource Center by Palm Beach State College faculty, skills specific to the restaurant industry will be taught and mastered. Sugar Sand Park is one of the most elaborate recreation venues in the city. It has a Science Explorium, a theater, a playground, ball fields and, since 2005, a carousel. The Boca Raton Rotary Club Sunset was instrumental in raising money to help purchase the intricate merrygo-round, recalled Douglas Heizer, former president of Boca Rotary Sunset and now publisher of the Boca Ra ton Tribune. Because of the Rotary Clubs generosity, the Greater Boca Raton Beach & Parks District, which owns the play area, offered the club a chance to use the carousel one day a year without charge. That day has come to be known as the Annual Carousel Day at Sugar Sand Park. This year, the sixth annual event will be held Dec. 2 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the carousel in Sugar Sand Park at 300 S. Military Trail, Boca Raton. Heizer said the day is special for a number of reasons. Kids can ride the carousel for free. All visitors can enjoy hot dogs and hamburgers with all the fixins. The event is really a benefit for the needy children who will likely get no presents during the upcoming holidays. Those planning to attend are asked to bring a new, unwrapped toy. They will be distributed to children for Christmas at the Wayne Barton Study Center and to children who get their meals from Boca Helping Hands. The special day of free rides and food in exchange for a donated toy is sponsored by the Rotary Club Boca Ra ton West.

Edition 123 5 Planners Seek Infrastructure to Encourage Sustainable Growth in Boca Ratons NW SectorThis is the fourth in a series of articles from One Boca, One Future spotlighting the City of Boca Ratons most valuable yet under-realized growth area: The Northwest Sector, the space on the map between I-95 and Military Trail, Clint Moore Road and Spanish River Blvd. Boca Raton is a tale of two cities. To the east, the citys business corridor has office buildings, commercial plazas, restaurants and residences. In many areas, those workers who do commute in can leave their cars behind and walk to lunch or mass transit service up and down the south Florida rail and commuter corridor. Its a live / work / play destina tion for the thousands who frequent the area daily. Yet, to the west, where dozens of high-tech, 21st century businesses have changed the landscape and employ thousands more employees, facilities and services are few and far between. Vehicular traffic is unreasonably high, as workers from across South Florida and with no local housing options endure long commutes. Lunch runs or errands require a car trip to the nearest caf, eatery or commercial plaza. The picture is taxing on employers, their workers, the community and the citys long-term prospects. Lack of sustainable development affects the citys tax base, which is missing out on revenue opportunities that may only be realized when older, existing assets are given new life. Amenity Rich and Community Focused Visionaries looking at the Northwest Sector see a different future for the area one whose physical and human infrastructure will be amenity rich and community focused. From west to east, the entire city will benefit from the improvements high-quality residential and commercial development can bring in service, heightened tax base, quality of life and the enhancement of greater Boca Raton. Plans in place promise to remake an area left fallow since IBM dramatically downsized and mostly left the area in the 1980s. Just as many other areas like downtown Boca Raton have created plans to reinvent themselves, these efforts can help our city flourish as One Boca One Future. Currently, the Northwest Corridor features a limited and constrained mix of amenities to serve existing and future employers and their employees. It has some of the areas top ranked public schools, with Lynn University, Florida Atlantic University and Palm Beach State College nearby. Also close at hand but sufficiently far to require car travel to pa tronize are essential shopping, dining and residential services needed to serve the sectors robust and growing employee base. Sustainable Develpment Concepts Area employers note how a stronger infrastructure would better serve their existing employee base providing essential services and suitable multifamily housing for their high-skilled, high-wage employees. Those who today commute from Delray Beach, Boynton Beach, West Palm Beach or throughout Broward County to the south, instead will find suitable residential options in keeping with their educated, Millennial lifestyle. Theyll live close to work, support area businesses that enrich the tax base, while establishing roots in the local community. Area development will be linked together by a network of commuting and transportation options. Working with the city and county, investor developers and business owners will maximize mass transit to carry workers from the Tri-Rail station to area businesses. Battery-powered and lowemission trolleys and shuttles will travel to and from area restaurants for those employees who choose not to walk the route past lakes and beneath shade trees. Planned mobility and smart design are sustainable development concepts. Environmental and urban planning groups that support such initiatives include the National Multi Housing Council, the Sierra Club, the American Institute of Architects and the Urban Land Institute. These prac tices deliver an infrastructure that relies on proximity of residential, retail and employment to reduce reliance on cars. Deployed here, they will steer the sector into simpler, Boca Raton-centric living. Less traffic will mean less impact on the areas existing infrastructure and a lower carbon footprint and heat island effect on the climate. Such private sector-backed services will reduce or eliminate any financial impact on the city and make a strong statement about Boca Raton and its commitment to creating the infrastructure necessary to steer Boca Raton forward in an environmentally respectful manner and reduce traffic and connect the community. In the end, city leaders, landowners and business owners together can draft Boca Ratons roadmap to renewed, city-wide prosperity and transform the area into a dynamic live / work / play destination that is One Boca One Future.The next story in this series Creating the New City of Tomorrow will run next week. To learn more about Boca Ratons efforts to revitalize its future, visit www.OneBocaOneFuture.com.Area employers are convinced that a stronger infrastructure would better serve their existing employee base by providing essential services and suitable multifamily housing for their high-skilled, high-wage workers.

At the conclusion of Phase 3, Boca Helping Hands will provide contacts to area restaurants and caterers, thus opening the door for the participants to gain job interviews. This program is designed for those who truly want to break the cycle of dependence and obtain employment. BHH will provide the training, the experience and the opportunity. After that, its up to the client to build a new life. This new program embodies the American dream, said BHH Executive Director James S. Gavrilos. The generosity of The Jim Moran Founda tion, along with the Salah Foundation and the Hagen Family Foundation is a hand upnot a hand out. The clients must take accountability and responsibility for their own lives. We at Boca Helping Hands can only provide the springboard. The clients themselves must have the courage to dive! Boca Helping Hands serves the economically challenged, culturally diverse population of South Florida. Founded in 1998 by a group of local volunteers in response to the growing challenge of hunger and poverty in the community, BHH provides food, limited financial assistance and jobtraining to the unemployed and underemployed.

C.M.0 Editorial Executive Editor Managing Editor Online Edition Editor Social Media Software Engineer The recent effort by snack-cake maker Hostess to shut down its operations following a crippling strike by a couple of its unions has given us all pause to think about the role of unionism in the 21st century. The potential departure of Hostess and the possible demise of its humorously named products, Twinkies, Ding Dongs, Ho Hos, and other confections has been cause for jokes among the TV pundits. There is some good news, according to the Associated Press. Hostess and one of its largest unions have agreed to go into media tion, so the company will stay in business for the time being. That means the 18,500 employees who would lose their jobs if Hostess goes under will likely be able to keep their paychecks if and whether they discontinue the strike. The loss of Hostess hit a lot of people pretty hard, particularly those of us who grew up with the likes of Wonder Bread and all the goodies that included cupcakes with the cream inside. It would be great if the company can go on. But the matter of unionism and the tremendous impact it apparently had on Hostess Brands is food for thought and its not a sweet snack. I understand something about unions. I was a union member for 25 years at the newspaper where I was employed in Rhode Island. We worked for a tough, union-busting company, and being a member or an officer in that union was no walk in the park. Ive been out of that place for more than a dozen years now, and I suspect the union has been broken. I received emails a few years ago from my former colleagues saying another company had purchased the paper and was cutting staff by giving out severance packages. I suspected those packages looked good, but didnt have a whole lot of substance. And that seemed to prove itself true a few years later when I noticed that a lot of my friends were looking for work again. That union which was actually a Guild was necessary in that case to hold back a firm that would clearly have rolled over the rights of anyone working there if there werent some organization to stop it. I held just about every officer position in that Guild, from president to vice president, treasurer, secretary and contract committee member. In fact, I helped negotiate five contracts. I can say this. Our contract wasnt loaded with fat and stupid regulations which seem to be the downfall of many unions. This is where my experience seems to dovetail with the Hostess unions. From what I understand, that company had to follow some pretty draconian regulations. The company had to deliver bread and snack cakes in separate trucks. The drivers were not allowed to unload the trucks. And when the vehicles got to their destinations, two people were required to unload one for the bread and one for the snack foods. That is utterly ridiculous and that comes from a person who toiled a lot of years for my union and also for a company that was pretty short on praise and long on reprimands. We didnt have stupid rules like that. And we didnt want them. The bottom line is, as a member and officer of my union, I was taught to protect the membership from nasty company shenanigans. If that newspaper had gone out of business during my union presidency, I would have been beside myself with anger. Thankfully, it didnt and the firm is still in business. But even when I look at the paper on the Internet, I can see things that we, as a union, would have never allowed because if we had, we all would have lost our jobs. But there were no job losses because of anything the union did. Can the Hostess unions say the same? Did they protect the workers? If 18,500 people could have lost their jobs so Hostess workers could continue demanding ludicrous conditions, that is not protecting workers and their jobs. I hope that the mediation works so Hostess can go back into business. This nation cannot afford 18,500 more unemployed people.

Edition 123 9 The Boca Raton Tribune EDITORIALS & LETTERS East/West Boca Raton, FL By Dr. Synesio Lyra, Jr.POSITIVE LIVING world, having received his education in four of them. When he resided in southern California, he wrote a weekly column for the daily Anaheim Bulletin, which was carried for about six years, until he moved to south Florida. By Douglas HeizerTHOUGHTS FROM THE PUBLISHER A small, generous offer you make to a poor or homeless person does not lose its value for that reason when you happen to extend a similar gesture toward others of a higher status in society. The ultimate worth of what you provide is in the contribution made, and the sincerity of heart with which it was presented! Kindness is a quality which is to be shared indiscriminately to every fellow human, regardless of ones station in life. It can be a friendly greeting at a public place, the answer to an inquiry made, directions provided to a certain location, a personal word of cheer, or anything else, great or small, which can contribute to ones wellbeing at that moment, on that day! Furthermore, acts of caring and kindness do make a positive difference in the life of the one who receives it without leaving the one who gives it unrewarded. As I often say, theres no kindness you extend to others that wont come back to you in multiplied ways! Any good deed has the quality of a boomerang. Its also a seed which keeps on yielding a rich harvest, many times over! No one should be exalted on ac count of giving neither must anyone be diminished as the one receiving. It is a privilege to participate in the give and take which is indispensable in the smoother functioning of any society. As social creatures, all are responsible to ones neighbor as positive affirma tion of divine mandates, and as contributions for peace on earth through mutual aid! People are thankful for acts of kindness, no matter how little, as wisely observed. Never consider as too small something which will make an indelible, permanent impression in another life, which you can rather easily accomplish! By the same token, receive with joy and gratitude whatever good that is extended to you even if below your own standards or short of your immediate need. I still have in my files drawings made by my children when they were small, which so lovingly they offered to me after completion. I continue to collect similar expressions of love from my young grandsons who also draw something on paper, or cut and paste to offer me! Frequently I show those to them as proof of my appreciation, my love, my respect, and as a stimulus for them to act in this fashion toward others as well. The ripples of kindness keep going out indefinitely as Dr. James R. Kok recorded in one of his books. It is more blessed to give than to receive, but those who receive anything also need to give the sincere gratitude of their heart to anyone who presents them with such gift, albeit insignificant as it may ultimately be! Its often easier to open our wallets or checkbooks and make a contribution to people and causes we shall never physically see; its far more impacting when our offers are accompa nied by our physical presence as well! This week I have decided to place this great column written by Jim Mathis as my Thoughts from the Publisher. We have so much to be thankful for this holiday season. I hope you enjoy this column as much I have enjoyed it. Have a great week and God bless. Douglas Heizer Just about every culture has a time for celebrating the harvest and thanking God for another years provision. In the United States, Thanksgiving goes back to the early colonial times. Even though most of us are not farmers, millions of people still take time to show gratitude to God for providing for our needs. There is a curious thing about this annual holiday, however: It has become easy to confuse thanksgiving with comparing. For instance, it is not uncommon to hear people say something like, I am thankful for all I have because there are many people who do not have it as good. Or, I am thankful that I have a job, because there are a lot of people who are unemployed. While statements like these seem like expressions of gratitude, they also seem a little bit like saying we are thankful that we are not like THOSE folks. I wonder: When did the observance of Thanksgiving Day become a game of comparisons. Being thankful should not be about seeing how much better off we are than some other people. Instead, it should be about willingness to be content and happy with who we are and whatever state we find ourselves not compared to someone else. This day should be about being grateful for the small things that make life worth living. Not only material things, but also things like health (or having peace and hope in the midst of poor health); friends and family that we love; and the abilities and innate gifts that we possess that we can use for the benefit of others. Looking down on someone less fortunate than us or looking up to people we consider more fortunate than we are is never healthy. Thankfulness should look a lot more like contentment than searching to find somebody that in some way appears less fortunate than we are. The apostle Paul stated it this way:I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances. I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want (Philippians 4:11-12). I realize contentment is considered a dirty word in some circles. After all, should we not always be striving for more? Not necessarily. Jesus told His followers, Watch out! Be on your guard against all kinds of greed; a mans life does not consist in the abundance of his possessions(Luke 12:15). On the other hand, contentment should not be confused with compla cency. Other words for contentment are happiness, or peace of mind. It has to do with knowing yourself, having an honest appraisal of who you are and what you can do, and knowing that you are doing what you are supposed to be doing. For some people this is a hard statement, but it is essential nonetheless. We should accept who we are and where we are, be happy to be alive, and show gratitude for every breath we take. More than anything, Thanksgiving should be the time of year when we pause to give special thanks to God for being alive and having the ability to love and care for one other.

Edition 123 11 DIVORCE FLORIDA STYLEBy Mike Gora ColumnistsThe Boca Raton Tribune Q: I am a thirty-five-year-old bachelor, never been married. I was at home, recently, watching a pre-season football game, when the phone rang. It was a ten-year-old girl, who lived in another city in Florida. She said that she found out that I was her father, by looking through some old papers of her mother. He mother had told her that we had never married, and that I had died in a car accident before she was born. She found me by doing a search on her Mac, for Florida residents with my name, which is not that common. I asked her mothers name, realized that her story might be true, and asked to speak to her mother. She refused, but her mother still lived in the town where we had both grown up in Pennsylvania, so it was not hard to find her address and phone number. How can I find out if she really is my daughter? What are my legal rights and responsibilities toward my daughter? How can I invoke those rights, if I want to? A: It seems doubtful that the tenyear-old detective you describe will not report her findings to her mom. You should consider calling her mom and re-establishing some communications. If she denies that you are the father, and you want to know the truth, you can file a paternity suit against the mother to determine the truth through a DNA test. If the test proves that you are the father obligations for past and future child support will have to be addressed. Your liability for past support might depend on a number of facts, such as whether the mother had known your whereabouts for the entire period, and refused to let you know about your daughters birth, or had lost track of you and had no means to locate you. Under certain circumstances, the Florida statutes limit you liability to a few years prior to your gaining knowledge of your position. Florida law prohibits either parent waiving the right to receive child support from the other. If the state of Florida ha supplied some support to the mother because of your absence, it might have a claim for support against you. There are many legal rights arising in you behalf and on behalf of the child. If the young girl is your daughter, she will be able to inherit from you, if you have no will, and die owning property. Children, however can be disinherited. You will have a right to visitation, and other parental rights, if the court sees fit or you and mom can agree. Of course, care must be taken for the childs bests inters in establishing some normal contact. It is likely that advice from a therapist would be a good idea. It appears you have your work cut out for you. Michael H. Gora has been certified by the Board of Education and 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 can be reached at email@example.com. FAITHBy Rick Warren Over my many years of working with people, it has been my observation that high achievers usually have at least one obvious thing in common: Personal discipline. Suc cessful people are willing to do the difficult things that average people are unwilling to do. As the pastor of a church with over 20,000 attendees under my care, I have had the opportunity to know and counsel many of our areas most successful business and professional leaders. As we have met together, they have taught me a lot about success and the traits nec essary to achieve it. I have observed that successful people express self-discipline in six key ways: Successful people master their moods. They live by their commitments, not their emotions. People who do the right thing, even when they dont feel like it, accomplish most of what gets done in the world! A person without self-control is as defenseless as a city with broken down walls (Proverbs 25:28). Successful people watch their words. They put their minds in gear before opening their mouths. He who guards his lips guards his life (Proverbs 13:3). Successful people restrain their reactions. How much can you withstand before you lose your cool, before your emotions take control? If you are sensible you will control your temper. When someone wrongs you, it is a great virtue to ignore it (Proverbs 19:11). Successful people stick to their schedules. If you dont determine how you will spend your time, you can be sure that others will decide for you! Live life with a due sense of responsibility...make the best use of your time (Ephesians 5:15-16). Successful people manage their money. They learn to live on less than what they make and they invest the difference. The value of a budget is that it tells your money where you want it to go, rather than wondering where it went! The wise man saves for the future, but the foolish man spends whatever he gets (Proverbs 21:20). Successful people maintain their health. By taking care of themselves physically, they can accomplish more and enjoy their achievements. Each of you should control his own body, keeping it pure and treating it with respect (1 Thessa lonians 4:4). Where do YOU need to develop more self-control? The disciplines you establish today will determine your level of success tomorrow. But it takes more than just willpower for lasting self-control. It takes a power greater than yourself. Good intentions, by themselves, often are not enough. Think about this promise from the Bible: God does not give us a spirit of fear, but a spirit of power, love and self-control (2 Timothy 1:7). He can give us the strength and resolve to do the things we cannot do in our own power. Rick Warren is the author of the hig hly acclaimed, best-selling book, The Purpose-Drive Life, which has been translated into many languages and sold throughout the world. It affirms the importance of having a carefully considered, clearly expressed purpose to guide everyday life.
12 -Edition 123 By John William Johnson Municipal NewsYou know, Silas McMarner says, I think I have a solution to the whole thing. This mornings whole thing turns out to be two things with Mc Marner saying he has a solution to both health care reform, and deaths caused by guns. The Breakfast Club pauses, leans forward.....because this is going to be a good one: two ideas with one argument. I think I have a solution to the whole thing, McMarner repeats, adding quickly: instead of eliminating the guns, lets tax the bullets. He waits five seconds for effect. And then lets use the money from that tax to help pay for health care reform, because......... He smiles that sly fox smile of his, pausing even longer now for the rhetorical coup-de -grace. Well, Roscoe Bismark asks finally. Because what? Well, guns kill people, and killing is a sin, so we can make a tax on bullets another sin tax. McMarner is serious and perhaps hes right because without bullets, guns are simply clubs from which even slow people can run. Yeah, Roscoe says, finally warming to the argument (you can tell hes done so because his newspaper is now folded). Yeah, he repeats, and then lets sell those bullets only in towns with populations of 5,000 or less. Only 5,000 or less? I ask. Right.....look, he says in his best parent to child voice, the problem with people using guns to kill other people is primarily in the big cities. Lets first tax them, and then sell only the bullets in small towns because persons in the cities couldnt find their way there to buy them. Whether Silas plan has merit requires more space than available here -but the United States is, by far, the world leader is citizen deaths by handgun. As well, and according to the Violence Policy Center, Gun violence places a tremendous burden on Americas health-care system. Direct medical costs for gunshot wounds total more than $6 million a day. Nonfatal gunshot wounds are the leading cause of uninsured hospital stays in the United States, with an estimated half of such costs borne directly by the public. At the same time, the much cited Second Amendment says: A well-regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed. That amendment, says Roscoe, is his best lawlerly voice, insures a collective right (the right of more than one) rather than an individual right. During the debate over the Bills of Rights, Elbridge Gerry argued that a state militia was necessary.... to prevent the establishment of a standing army, the bane of liberty....whenever governments mean to invade the rights and liberties of the people, they always attempt to destroy the militia in order to raise an army upon the ruins. In short, the Second Amendment was to allay fears about a federal army usurping state authority and wasnt about guaranteeing an individuals right to gun ownership. Nonetheless, the amendments goal has been confused and blurred by the gun lobby over the last two centuries to where we now lead the world in annual deaths by handgun. And the solution is tax the bullets, McMarner smiles. Spike Opchinsky then shoots a link sausage bullet at McMarner using an elastic band stretched across his wide hand. Tax that, he laughs. firstname.lastname@example.org Next Time: The Breakfast Club Debates Obamacare.

BOCA RATON -Autism after 21, recently founded by Michelle Rubin to help individuals with autism once they are no longer eligible for help from their public school system, has received a $2,500 grant from The Geo Group to help the organization get off the ground. In addition, the National Greek Orthodox Ladies Philoptochos Society has donated $3,000 to Autism after 21, at the suggestion of Helen Ballerano, a Boca Raton resident active in the Society. Autism after 21, a nonprofit organization, was formed in 2011 to provide opportunities and services for autistic adults over the age of 21. Founder Michelle Rubin, whose son was diag nosed with autism at age 2, is the driving force behind the group. She recognized that for many families of an individual with special needs, it is dif ficult to find programs once their children turn 21, even though frequently an individuals needs do not change simply because their age does. Autism after 21 will provide young adults with autism spectrum disorders the life skills training they need to independently live full and functioning lives within our community. This would be accomplished within a program that would promote physical and mental well-being through therapy, employment, education, housing and social opportunities.

Outstanding taste of large portions. 17 popular rolls are also presented. The seafood heading had crystal shrimp smooth and light and fine. The standard shrimp in lobster sauce was shallow tasting.

Aptly named, The 1940s Radio Hour is a fun-filled, family-friendly evening of theatre arriving just in time to summon up the holiday spirit. The play portrays the final holiday broadcast of the struggling Mutual Manhattan Variety Cavalcade as it takes to the air during World War II to record its broadcast for the troops overseas. It features hit songs from the era, dancing and old-time sound effects created right before your eyes. Radio Hour is the story of a ha rassed producer whose lead singer is often drunk, a delivery boy who wants a chance behind the mike, a second ba nana who dreams of singing a ballad and a trumpet-playing sound effects man who chooses a fighter plane over Glenn Miller. The show features an excellent cast, well-voiced and groomed in 1940s style. Its a well-balanced mix of antics (in the style of WKRP in Cincinnati), 40s tunes and even old commercials. (Remember how they packaged products like Sal Hepatica, Pepsi Cola hits the spot and Chiquita Banana? Youll love it.) My older brother turned me on to the joy of old radio, and I thank him in advance for leading me to the playhouse stage for a wonderful evening. Nearly stealing the stage though he is way in the back is Pops Bailey (Richard Iverson), a crotchety, tense, wizened stage doorkeeper who makes book on the company phone and reads showgirl magazines. Lou Cohn (Daniel Eilola) is a big shot (at least in his own mind) who runs the show and is the sound effects man. Clifton Feddington (Rick Hvizdak) is the harried announcer who has the exaggerated radiospeak style down pat. And then theres Johnny Cantone (Jim Tyminski), the vocalist and Sinatra wannabe who drinks, smokes and flirts too much. Cerina Anderson is perfection as Geneva, the southern Belle who got her start as a teen performing in swing ballrooms. The stage is filled with 40s folks Andrew Spinelli as the singer/trumpeter in a uniform, ready to go to war; Marc Sachs as Wally, a delivery boy who wants a singing career and the girl singers Diane Tyminski, Valentina Diaz and Ashlley Rodriguez. They all sing to tunes from the keyboard of Roger Blakenship, portraying musical director Zoot. The songs are memorable and will probably roll around in you head through the holidays From Merry Little Christmas and Ill Never Smile Again to Aint She Sweet and Strike up the Band. The show is playing through Dec. 2 at the Lake Worth Playhouse, 713 Lake Avenue, Lake Worth. For tickets, call 561-586-6410. Cast of s Radio Hour As Geneva, Cerina Anderson is terrific.

B6 Edition 123 To relieve stress your body, mind and spirit need a break. A medical doctor I know in New York City has a busy practice and a stressful day. When he comes home, he takes a bath without fail. He draws a tub of very warm water and soaks in it for about twenty minutes. I asked him why. When you get out of bed in the morning, your bodys organs are more or less rested, he explained. As the day goes on, those organs, as well as your mind and spirit get put out of sorts due to the days stressful wear and tear, as it were. Hydrotherapy, a fifteen or twenty minute warm bath, relaxes me better than anything else Ive tried. I can feel myself returning to a calm state, and I believe its good for my long term health and well being, too. Ever since, I have soaked in a relaxing tub of warm water every day I possibly can. Hydrotherapy an Ancient Healing Practice Hydrothermal therapy (hot water treatment) has been used as a traditional treatment for disease and injury by many cultures, including China and Japan. The ancient Greek healing god, Asklepios, advocated the use of water as medicine. Similarly, Roman physicians Galen and Celsus used therapeutic baths for many remedies. So, water therapy has been used for centuries to heal the sick. A relaxing hot bath can help relieve congestion, aches and pains and will restore energy to your entire body, especially the neck and shoulders, which seem to suffer the most under stress. By expanding your capillaries, the smallest blood vessels in the body, the warm water helps bring more blood to all your organs, providing them with more nourishment. Lying horizontally in a tub also relieves the heart from the burden of having to pump against gravity and increases circulation without using extra energy. One of the functions of your skin with its millions of pores is the elimination of toxins. Immersion in warm water for 15 or 20 minutes helps stimulate this process, causing perspiration, which in turn, forces skin eruptions to emerge more quickly. Scientific studies have proved that a warm tub bath has a positive effect on the nervous system. Warm water stimulates the nerve ends in your skin, which in return deliver soothing messages to the organs, glands and muscles in your body. Water therapy is also very effective as a nontoxic calming agent to soothe your body and help you get a better nights sleep. It acts as a mild tranquilizer, if you do it just before going to bed. Taken in the morning, it provides energy for the day. How to Set Up Your Home Treatment Spa Your peak of good health, ultimate beauty and youthful vitality can be attained only when your body, including your internal organs, mind, and spirit are in harmony. But you dont have to go to a health spa, spend time in a whirlpool and indulge in a massage. An ordinary bathroom can be turned into a luxurious home treatment spa. Here is a checklist of things you can do easily to accomplish this and pamper yourself: on the bathroom door during every treatment yes I have one. two in the bathroom. shelf space close by nothing loud, and no commercials sip with a straw. Cool juice is great. at arms length. loofa or sponge is OK, too. Achieve Total Relaxation Heres How Most of us think we know when we are totally relaxed, but we usually are not, not even when were sleeping. Follow these five steps to make sure you are: 1. Once your personal spa) is ready, get into the bathtub and slowly sink into the water. Allow all of your shoulders to submerge up to your neck, even if you have to bend your legs and keep your knees out of the water. Make sure your feet are in the warm water though. Now get comfortable. Get so comfortable that you do not have to hold up any part of your body you must become dead weight to get totally relaxed. 2. Focus your attention on one part of your body at a time and command it to relax completely youll feel that part getting limp. Relaxing your back and neck muscles fully is most important. Rest your head on either a rolled-up towel, or better yet, a small waterproof head and neck cushion (you can buy one at most bath supply stores). It will greatly assist the relaxation process, and help keep your hair dry, as well. 3. Once you are totally relaxed, take a half dozen or so deep breaths s-l-o-w-l-y, and then exhale completely. 4. Think of one of the most pleasant things that ever happened to you. Focus on it. 5. Now soak for 15 or 20 minutes, pretending you are asleep. Make sure your shoulders and the base of your neck remain immersed in the warm water. Your hydrotherapy treatment will do the rest.

Edition 123 B7 Entertainment Skip SheffieldThe Sessions The Sessions is a most unusual film. Before I go any further let me add that I think it has Oscar-worthy performances by stars John Hawkes and Hel en Hunt and co-star William H. Macy as well as writer-director Ben Lewin. What makes The Sessions so unusu al is that it is about surrogate sex, yet it is not really about the act of sex. It is about friendship, love and redemp tion. Oh, and it is based on the true story of poet Mark OBrien, who was confined to an iron lung for most of his life due to the destructive effects of polio he contracted at age 6. The amazing John Hawkes (Winters Bone) plays Mark OBrien. Though Mark is in an iron lung he can still write, using a pencil clenched between his teeth. Mark requires constant care, but he does get out of his iron lung and his house, thanks to his helpers. A devout Catholic, the Berkeley, California resident regularly goes to confessional with his parish priest, Father Brendan (William H. Macy). Father Brendan is as an unusual a priest as Mark OBrien is a polio survivor. There is nothing Mark cant tell Father Brendan. When he tells him he longs to experience sexual union with a woman, and is thinking of hiring a sexual surrogate, Father Brendan understands and gives his blessing. Cheryl Cohen Greene (Helen Hunt) is the woman Mark hires. She lays down strict rules. There will be no more than six sessions; no socializing other than the therapy, and perish the thought of becoming emotionally involved. Cheryl is married and her husband knows what she does, but there are limits. Cheryl is infinitely patient with Mark, who though a paraplegic, can achieve erection and orgasm. Director Lewin, a polio survivor himself, uses a light touch in the awkward, tentative sexual encounters. The Sessions is actually quite funny at times. Fumbling sex is after all, pretty funny. John Hawkes went to great lengths to approximate the shriveled, twisted physique of his character. Helen Hunt is warm and completely selfless as Cheryl, and dignified even when she bares all. Helen Hunt is 49 and beautiful, both in face and body, but it is her love and understanding that moves the viewer. This is the best performance of her career. The Sessions is sad too. Losing his virginity at age 38 gave Mark more self-confidence and desire to have a relationship with an ordinary woman. Perhaps because of this he defied odds by living until age 49. Granted it was a short life, but The Sessions dramatically proves life can be fulfilling even under the harshest of handicaps, Four stars Silver Linings Playbook is about a handicap not of the body but of the mind. Pat Solitano (Bradley Coo per) has just been released after eight months in a psychiatric facility. A high school English teacher, his melt down has cost him his job, his wife Nikki (Brea Bee) and his house. Pat is picked up by his ever-loving mother Dolores (Jackie Weaver), who takes him back to the Philadelphia home he grew up in. His father Pat Sr. (Robert Di Niro) isnt thrilled, but he tries to give his oddball son some space. Pat Jr. went through some kind of 12-step program called Excelsior and now he is a fitness addict, jogging around the neighborhood with his upper torso wrapped in a black plastic garbage bag. On one of his jogs Pat encounters Tiffany (Jennifer Lawrence), a girl with problems of her own. Tiffany is also recently divorced and down in the dumps. She is mutually acquainted with Pats ex-wife, and when Pat asks her to deliver a letter to Nikki (she has a restraining order against Pat), Tiffany agrees. In return for that favor, Pat agrees to take a stab at Tiffanys request for him to be her dance partner in a local com petition. Writer-director David O. Russell (The Fighter) has thrown a little of everything into this feel-good comedy. Pats family are rabid fans of the Philadelphia Eagles. If you are a partisan, you will love that. Jennifer Lawrence made her spectacu lar screen debut at age 19 in Winters Bone with John Hawkes. Lawrence has an irresistible, vulnerable, yet scrappy appeal that serves her charac ter well. Bradley Cooper is enormously earnest and nave as Pat, and therefore quite funny. Di Niro has relaxed a bit as the apoplectic pop, and Jacki Weaver makes the perfect mother lioness. Emotional illness is nothing to laugh at, but Silver Linings makes recovery most entertaining.

Edition 123 21 Municipal NewsThe Boca Raton Tribune From left, Charlotte Robinson, Marilyn Surrett, Connie Neilsin BOCA RATON Boca Police are searching for the thief or thieves who stole thousands of copies of the Boca Raton Tribune along with additional thousands of advertising inserts from outside the Boca Raton Tribune building at 399 NW Second Ave. at mid-day on Friday, Nov. 16. Publisher Douglas Heizer told police he discovered the theft when he returned from lunch early in the afternoon. He reported that about 6,000 bundled copies of the Thanksgiving edition the paper were taken along with thousands of boxed advertising inserts. Heizer said the newspapers were dropped off from the printer about 3 a.m. Friday and were left in their usual spot outside the building. He said he noticed the pile of papers when he left for lunch, but they were gone when he returned about 20 minutes later. He said the boxes contained a total of about 30,000 advertising supplements. Some two-thirds of those boxes were taken, he told police. Investigators also noted some vandalism to a car parked near the spot where the papers were taken. The publisher said he has heard that other newspapers are being stolen from vending boxes by thieves who sell them by the pound to scrap paper companies. The advertising inserts fetch a higher price because they are printed on heavier, glossy paper. Heizer said there has never been an incident of papers being stolen from the outside of the Tribune building.

Allen West has conceded victory to his challenger, Patrick Murphy. West was seeking election to his second term in Congress, but his first in the newly created District 18. West was elected in 2010 in the former District 22. I appreciate Congressman Wests gracious concession today, Murphy told the Boca Raton Tribune after receiving word from West on Tuesday morning. I am truly humbled that the voters of the 18th district have entrusted me to represent them in Washington. To those who supported my oppo nent, my door is open and I want to hear your voice, said the congressman-elect. I campaigned on a mes sage of reaching across the aisle to get things done for the people of the Treasure Coast and Palm Beaches, and that is as important in this district as it is in Washington. I am excited and honored to get to work. Until this week, Republican West had refused to concede to the Democratic foe. West challenged vote totals in St. Lucie County and went to court in that county and Palm Beach County demanding a recount. Since Election Day, West has trailed Murphy, but the margin was always just a little higher than the .5 percent which, under Florida laws, demands an automatic recount.West Concedes Victory to Murphy after Long Ballot Battle Patrick Murphy Allen West

Thank you. Being on the world stage for the Presidential Debate would never have been accomplished without their courageous actions. Being on the world stage because of this event has elevated Boca Raton to international status with dignity, confidence, and virtually without incident. Kudos must also be given to the city administration, the police and fire personal and the city council/ CRA for bringing the event to the people in the Mizner Park Amphitheater on the actual evening of the debate. Well Done.. But perhaps the most unexpected event took place two week after the debate.On Sunday evening, November 4, the Leadership Society of Lynn University, in cooperation with the city of Boca Raton, conducted a free concert for the public to say THANK YOU to the community. Imagine they are saying thank you to us.amazing. A CELEBRATION of AMERICANA featured the Lynn Universitys Conservatory of Music Orchestra under the direction of Dr. Jon Robertson and performing musical selections demonstrating a cross-section of Americas culture and diversity. Selections included jazz, country, Broadway musicals and even a breathtaking rendition of Supermans March, highlighting their almost superhuman effort of the past year. Also performing to the crowds delight were four outstanding vocalists; to wit: Neil Nelson, baritone, Kristen DiNonno, soprano, Brian Ricci, tenor and Nadege Bellande Robertson, mezzo-soprano. All were terrific but a special shout out to Ms. Robertson for a hot rendition of the classic song, Fever, one of my all-time favorites. No concert celebrating Americana would be complete without a salute to our nations armed forces as well a salute to the patriotic heritage and history of our great land. This concert was no exception. Renditions of America the Beautiful and God Bless America were designed to inspire the crowd and to set the stage for the fireworks finale by Zambelli, truly a delightful surprise. Kudos also must be awarded to those sponsors and contributors who, with their generosity, made this experience possible. Sponsoring the event was the Len Chamber Charitable Trust, Sanford and Marion Goldstein Trustees. Also sponsoring the event was PNC Bank with a generous corporate sponsorship. These organizations provided hundreds of citizens a wonderful evenings under the stars, an evening that should not be easily forgotten. Lynn University continues to demonstrate its community participation. The tag line associated with the event is When talent meets inspiration, the results are extraordinary. This is oh so very true. Boca Ratons inspirational resources are significant. In the downtown we have a world class amphitheater that now seems to be reaching its stride. We have a cultural arts center that has the capac ity to be world class but is so very underutilized at this time and we have a willing local government ready to take their bows on the world stage. Also in our community are a myriad of other educational and cultural venues. Before Boca Raton can really become a significant interna tional business destination, we need to extend our hand in friendship to other global participants. We need to demonstrate with culture and with the arts that the world is welcome here. Events like this Celebra tion of Americana and the Brazilian festival are good a start. Culture always precedes commerce. That is a given. The city council, in this years goals setting session, committed to the advancement of the thought. Management has been tasked to establish a Sister City program this fiscal year. That would be a good thing.However, since the goal setting session, there has been little news on this item. It is essential that the council continue to advance this as a strategic objec tive. Councilwoman Scott is the energy behind this effort. She needs to get out front on this and make her presence known inside the na tional organization of sister cities and she need to participate with the world community at their locations in Miami and in Atlanta. Between these two world class cities, most of the worlds nations have diplomatic posts. These are good places to start. The world is at our doorstep....we need to invite them in.

Not only are veterans highly-skilled and have military values that help them excel in civilian positions, but also because they are used to a fast-paced work environment that is resultsdriven. In addition to that, there are also several financial incentives to hiring a veteran: The Returning Heroes Tax Credit, passed in November of 2011, provides businesses that hire unemployed veterans with a maximum credit of $5,600 per veteran. The Wounded Warriors Tax Credit, also passed last November, offers businesses that hire veterans with service-connected disabilities a maximum credit of $9,600 per veteran. Business owners may also be able to get reimbursed for training newly hired veterans through the Workforce Investment Act of 1998, which provides high-quality job training through state and local workforce development systems.

Edition 123 29 SportsThe Boca Raton Tribune SportsBy: Pedro Heizer The Strikers have started their offseason on a positive note by picking up the club option on four players, Walter Restrepo, Matt Glaeser, Hosman Ramos, and Scott Gordon. Im really excited and feel privileged to have an opportunity to keep playing for a club like the Strikers, said Scott Gordon. We have high expectations for the upcoming season and Im excited to get back to work. The Strikers, who have been making all the right moves in order to be one of the better teams in the league, have championship aspira tions as they look to bring the Soc cer Bowl to Fort Lauderdale for the first time in the history of the franchise. Earlier this offseason, Fort Lau derdale resigned rookie sensation Mark Anderson, and Pecka and now with the club picking up the option on four of its core players, the Strikers are on track to be one of the teams to beat in the NASL next season. Weve built a solid core group of players within our organization, said Strikers head coach Daryl Shore. Being able to keep them together is key to reaching our goal of winning a championship in 2013. Restrepo was one of those key core players the Strikers could not go without. Despite a knee injury suffered on August 15 that sidelined him for the rest of the season, Restrepo had an outstanding 2012 season earning a unanimous selection to the NASLs Best XI team alongside teammate Mark Anderson. Restrepo was also the NASL League leader in assists with eight. Its great being able to come back and play for the Strikers, said Restrepo. We have a great group of guys here in Fort Lauderdale and I feel comfortable with this club. According to Restrepo, the knee rehab is going well and says hes looking for a return to the pitch in March, I cannot wait to be back to full rhythm and help this team succeed. Glaeser, who had a record season for the Strikers this past season, has been one of the Strikers most reli able players in the past few years. This season, Glaeser broke some franchise record to go along with his solid season. He became the teams all-time leader in saves (191), wins (20), games played (55), and is tied for first in shutouts with 13. I was a little disappointed with the way the season finished. I felt that both as a team and indi vidually this season could have gone better, said Glaeser of the way the Fort Lauderdale Strikers 2012 season came to an end with a 3-1 loss to the Carolina RailHawks in the first round of the NASL Playoffs. We had some positives though, young players stepped up and played well this season. added Glaeser. Scott Gordon, who started the season in Major League Soccer with Chivas USA, played in only 22 games with the Strikers but his big body was a crutial in a Strikers defense in which at times was shaky before Gordons return to Fort Lauderdale. Gordon scored one goal and had one assists this past season. Rookie Hosman Ramos appeared in 12 matches for the yellow and red with seven starts. With core players intact and a front office eager to bring the Soc cer Bowl to Fort Lauderdale, the Strikers are poised for a fantastic 2013 Season. Every season I expect us to con tend for a championship, said Matt Glaeser as he echoed the thoughts of his head coach. With a solid core group returning, I see no reason why we cant win the league. Strikers Exercise 2013 Options on Restrepo, Glaeser, Ramos, and GordonThe Florida Atlantic University football team found itself on the losing end of an offensive shootout against rival FIU, falling 3424 in a nationally televised contest Friday at the FAU Stadium. Senior quarterback Graham Wilbert threw for 403 yards and two touchdowns in the loss. FIU (3-8, 2-5 Sun Belt) held a 14-10 halftime advantage. Then, FAUs Jonathan Wallace capped a six play, 61-yard drive with a oneyard touchdown run. The score gave the host a 17-14 lead with 6:43 left in the third quarter. The lead did not last long. FIUs Richard Leonard returned the ensuing kickoff 100 yards for a score. The Panthers would take a 27-17 lead in the final minute of the third quarter on a 15-yard touchdown pass from Jake Medlock to Wayne Times. FAU (3-8, 2-5 Sun Belt) answered on the first drive of the fourth quarter as Wilbert found Jenson Stoshak for a 60-yard touchdown pass. The offensive fireworks continued on FIUs next drive. Kedrick Rhodes scored on a one-yard rush at the 10:45 mark of the fourth quarter. FAUs William Dukes caught six passes for 116 yards. Daniel McKinney had a team-high seven receptions and Stoshak recorded 108 receiving yards. Nexon Dorvilus caught a first quarter touchdown pass. The Owls will close the 2012 sea son at home against the University of Louisiana on December 1, at 3 p.m. The program will honor its seniors prior to the game.

30 -Edition 123 Sports By: Matt PinedaChris Bosh was always reluctant to move to the center position through out his career. But as he saw the HEAT win the 2012 NBA Championship with him starting at center, his opinion may have changed. Bosh, this season, has started all 11 games for the HEAT at center. While Miami has a modest 8-3 record, Bosh has seen strides in his game that hasnt been there before. Bosh has led Miami in scoring 4 out of the 11 games, and has already racked up a 40 point game earlier this year against Phoenix. So far, Chris is averaging 19.6 PPG on 55% shooting. In his previous two seasons, Bosh scored 18.7 and 18.0 PPG on 49% and 48% shooting, respectively. Maybe the most telling part thats not included in those statistics is that Miami does not run plays for Chris anymore. Boshs production is simply based on him finding the right spots in spacing the floor, and cleaning up plays off the boards or screens. Bosh has found his perfect role in Miami. Because of the unique abilities of Dwyane Wade and LeBron James, Bosh isnt needed for isolation or plays ran for him. He is simply allowed to be used as a shooting threat to help space the floor. And scoring 19+PPG without a play being ran for you is impressive. Boshs current 55% shooting would be a career high. Chris is shoot ing a career best 86% from the charity strip, and doing all this in a career low 32 minutes per game. Coach Spoelstra has been able to manage everyones minutes very well oth er than the occasional over usage of LeBron James, who is so essential to the team. Bosh has adapted well to playing the center spot for Miami. He has to possibility of even starting for the Conference in the All-Star game if he keeps playing so well. Bosh will eventually struggle against the monsters of the middle like Tyson Chandler, Dwight Howard and Andrew Bynum. But Miamis weapons on offense must also be adapted to by the opposing teams. The move to the middle by Bosh has opened up so much for Miami. It means more time for Allen, Battier and Cole, and less time for offensively chal lenged Joel Anthony and Dexter Pittman. When Miami becomes sound defensively again, they will be a very challenging team to beat. Bosh has played big for Miami.
