Council members voted, 4-1, with Anthony Majhess voting against the proposal, to adopt Planned Mobility. Deputy City Manager George S. Brown explained the plan at length during a three-hour public hearing Tuesday night. He said the ordinance change creates flexibility in what can locate in the nearly 1,000-acre parcel thats a combination of several different commercial/industrial zonings. He stressed that there is no specific project in the works for that site. He also emphasized that the plan creates a framework for future development that could include up to 2,500 one-bedroom apartments that average about 900 square feet, but may be as small as 700 square feet. Brown said the concept is designed to bring businesses and employees closer together to eliminate some of the auto travel that is congesting city roads. It encourages walking and use of bikes, and discourages the use of cars by restricting parking.

That struc ture is now on FAUs Boca Raton campus. The Jaffe Center, one of the nations most prominent sites for books handmade by artists, began offering printing and bookbinding when it opened in 2007 at FAUs Wimberly Library, but always sought a hand papermaking lab to complete its education component. Although classes are not scheduled to begin until January 2013, the centers director, John Cutrone, began making paper as he prepared to open the lab in the historic building, which was named T-6 during World War II because it was intended to be a temporary structure. When I held the first dry sheet of paper with its beautiful deckled edge in my hands, I literally had a shiver run up and down my spine, said Cutrone. Making that sheet of pa per by yourself is a pretty amazing feeling. Cutrones aunt, Anne Dennis, an accordion player whose world tour with the USO during the war included the Boca Raton Army Air Field, was the celebrations featured guest. Dennis traveled from her home in Palos Park, Ill., with her daughter, Suzanne Tinaglia. Other guests included FAU President Mary Jane Saunders and her husband, George Newkome, Ph.D.; Brenda Claiborne, FAU provost; Rod Faulds, director of university galleries at FAU; Sandi-Jo Gordon of Miami; Maggie Delp of Hillsboro Beach and Don and Pat Cortese of Lake Worth. FAU benefactor Arthur Jaffe, who, with his wife, Mata, donated their private collection of 2,800 artists books to the Wimberly Library in 1998, retired from the center he founded last year, but continues to work there daily. Jaffe, also a World War II veteran, attended the opening celebration and greeted guests at the centers first expansion outside of the library. The lab is located near the FAU FAU Opens Hand Papermaking Lab in World War II BuildingStadium, across from the entrance of Palm Beach State College at the northeast corner of campus. The T-6 is one of the few remnants of the U.S. Army Air Field, which was a radar training facility. It is wonderful that we can repurpose this building, which served such an important purpose during World War II, and give it an entirely new life helping to create books and paper for artists who see the book as more than just a utilitarian object, said William Miller, Ph.D., dean of university libraries at FAU. The building was temporary, in terms of the war effort, but not so temporary in serving an educational purpose. During the opening celebrations, guests made paper, used a letterpress printing press to produce souvenir posters, sipped apple cider and snacked on doughnuts and apples. Dennis, ac companied by singer Jonas McCaffery, a student assistant at the Jaffe Center, led sing-alongs. Members of the South Florida Lindy Collective danced and also led songs.

The chapter now encompasses all of the east coast of Florida from Jacksonville to Key West and includes Gainesville. Through the generosity of New Epic Media, we have created a new logo and branding and are moving forward in keeping with our time-honored tra dition of discovering, cultivating and assisting young artists. The NSALs elegant five-course dinner party was once again hosted by NSAL members Bob and Dorinda Spahr in their Highland Beach Home. During the social hour, guests, seated concert-style around the grand piano, enjoyed a number of musical selections from two talented soloists. Chloe Dolandis, first place winner of the 2012 NSAL Musical Theatre Competition and award winning soloist Avery Sommers Proceeds from the benefit are earmarked for competitions, scholarships and opportunities to showcase young artists in dance, drama, art, literature, music, musical theatre and voice.

While some in the crowd complained of receiving late notice of the hearing, Mayor Susan Whelchel said, This was not done overnight. It is the most vetted, most talked-about legislation in 20 years. Planned Mobility was also the subject of an earlier public hearing in late November. Even foes favor the idea of kick-starting development in the NW Sector east of I-95 between Spanish River Boulevard and Glades Road. But they feel Planned Mobility wont stop people from using their own cars. Majhess explained his lack of support at length, saying the proposals vision is not balanced. Thats my opinion, one he said was developed by speaking with contractors and business people. He said he feels the plan has the potential of increasing the current 42,500 households in Boca by 22 to 25 percent. But most of the additional units, he said, will be small, 700-square foot apartment, and feels this plan doesnt meet the wishes of the general public. In his presentation, Brown said the units are not low-income housing. The mayor also asked Brown to clarify misinformation that has spread about the nature of the proposal, particularly items contained in an anti-development flier. The draft, said Brown, was developed by city staff working with a partnership from the Northwest Sector. Charles Siemon, a development attorney and spokesman for that group, recalled that IBM was a financial engine when it arrived in Boca, but the pullout to North Carolina caused a hurt that has never healed. We are here to address that rather traumatic decision (by IBM), said Siemon. He pointed out that of the 79,041 jobs in Boca, 88 percent, or 69,536 are held by people who live outside the city. Nearly 46,000 must commute more than 10 miles to their jobs. In support of the plan, Mayor Whelchel said Boca Raton is not a little village by the sea, it is a full-fledged city that must compete in the marketplace. She said the proposal will create jobs to keep Bocas young people in the city after they complete college. Many currently move to more lucrative job loca tions after their schooling. Both Deputy Mayor Susan Haynie and Councilwoman Constance Scott said Planned Mobility, in some fashion, goes back as far as 2004. An ordinance to create Planned Mobility sites in five areas of the city was adopted in 2010, and the NW Section is the first to be defined. This has been a 12-year journey, said Haynie. This is really an important piece of Bocas financial stability. It may be frightening to some individuals, but it will revitalize the Northwest part of the city. We really need quality development. Councilwoman Scott, chairwoman of the Community Redevelopment Agency which oversees downtown projects, said she feels very, very strongly that the path to future growth is well planned. She did acknowledge the opponents, but said a collec tive effort is needed to make it work. Both Scott and Whelchel apologized to residents of Boca Country Club, who said they were not notified of the meeting. BCC is located just outside the city limits, and Whelchel said that was why their comments were limited. In addition to the Northwest Sector, other areas where Planning Mobility will be tried include North Federal Highway, the area around Boca Raton Regional Hospital and the vicinity of Town Center at Boca Raton mall.From page 1

The new graduates join more than 124,000 alumni who have graduated from FAU since the university opened in 1964. Commencement is a revered tradition in the academic world, providing an opportunity for faculty, staff and the families and friends of graduates to come together in the spirit of celebra tion, said FAU President Mary Jane Saunders. We all join in expressing congratulations to our fall graduates, and we wish them well in their future endeavors. FAU presented the Presidents Distinguished Service Medallion to Claudia Hillinger, Ph.D., president of the Max Planck Florida Foundation, which is part of the Max Planck facility located at FAU Jupiter. She joined the Max Planck Society, Germanys most suc cessful scientific research organization, in 1998. Hillinger was responsible for Institute development before becoming research coordinator and head of the Central Scientific Laboratories and Technical Facilities for the Max Planck Institute of Biogeochemistry in Jena, Germany. She received a doctorate in biology from the Institute of Botany and Microbiology at the Technical University of Munich (TUM). She recently received the highest honor awarded by the German American Business Chamber in Miami the 2012 German American Award of Excellence. Jay Salkini, president and CEO of Tecore Networks and a two-time FAU alumnus, was awarded an Honorary Doctorate of Humane Letters at the Thursday ceremony. Major FAU benefactors Dr. Joan Rosmarin Chodorkoff, a retired psychologist, and Dr. Bernard Chodorkoff, a retired psychiatrist, were awarded Honorary Doctorate of Humane Letters at the Thursday ceremony. Emily Sutker was honored with an honorary bachelors degree posthumously from the College of Education at the Friday ceremony. She was pursuing a Bachelor of Arts in Elementary Education at FAU at the time of her death. Her family accepted the degree on her behalf. There are just a few times in life that one remembers forever, and receiving a college degree is certainly one of them, said Robert J. Stilley, chair of FAUs Board of Trustees. I congratulate all of FAUs graduates on this achievement and hope their degrees help them accomplish many more great things. Fall commencement highlighted the accomplishments of some outstanding graduates, including: served in the United States Public Health Service for more than 26 years.

C.M.0 Editorial Executive Editor Managing Editor Online Edition Editor Social Media Software Engineer Have a Holly Jolly FM-XM Xmas This YearDear Friends of Mosaic Theatre: A few weeks ago I submitted my resignation as Executive/Artistic Director, effective at the end of the 2012/2013 Season, to my Board. As you can imagine, it was with a heavy heart and the decision was not an easy one for me. I spent 14 years of my life investing everything I had in making Mosaic Theatre what it is today and Im quite proud of what we have accomplished. As I have become older and as I am about to become a father, I wish to improve my quality of life. My priorities have changed and I have changed. However, last Monday, the Board voted to close the theater. The Board believes that it was a financially responsible decision to close the theater as I am the heart and soul of the organization and without me, it has no chance to move forward. I, of course opposed the decision to close the theater, but unfortunately, I am only one vote. I want it to be clear that everyone on the Board loves the theater and wishes that it could continue. The Board tried to convince me to withdraw my resig nation. I didnt. Thank you, South Florida. It has been an honor to serve this community and I sincerely hope that I have enriched the quality of your lives in some way. Much love, Richard Jay Simon Founder and Executive/Artistic Director Mosaic TheatreI really enjoy driving my wifes car. Actually, its the same brand and model as mine, a little newer, maybe, but still the same nameplate. You see, her vehicle is equipped with a little goodie that I dont have a Sirius XM radio. And during the holiday season, the folks at XM have added a category specifically for Christmas music called XM Holly. In the past, I have raved about Sunny 107.9 and the fact that this FM station plays nothing but holiday favorites throughout the sea son. In fact, they began doing it two weeks before Thanksgiving, which means they actually started playing Christmas music around Veterans Day. So now, whether I am in my wifes car or my own, I have radio spots devoted specifically to happy holiday tunes. There is another attraction that comes with XM radio. Theres a screen on the dashboard that tells you the name of the song and who sings it. I really miss that in my car. I think the holiday music on XM is a little more hip than the tunes on 107.9 FM. For one thing, XM plays more Christmas music by singers who are still alive, which is kind of uplifting. Sure, I like Karen Carpenter, Bing Crosby, Gene Autry, Perry Como and that ilk (unfortunately, Andy Williams recently joined that list), but they have all passed on. XM brings on people like Michael Buble, Mariah Carey, Celine Dion, Julianne Hough, Manheim Steamroller, even the cast of Glee. Dont get me wrong. 107.9 plays its share of great tunes by live artists including those mentioned above along with Johnny Mathis, Barry Manilow and Madonna (who still does the best Santa Baby rendition, with apologies to Eartha Kitt.) I love Christmas songs. Cant get enough of The Christmas Song by Nat King Cole, Merry Christmas, Darling by the Carpenters and Little St. Nick by the Beach Boys. And I have a special affection for Hey, Santa, sung by Beach Boy Brian Wilsons two daughters. I havent yet heard Grandma got run over by a reindeer, but I did catch a bit of Dominic the Donkey by Italian favorite Lou Monte. Enjoy the melodies. Less than two weeks left! NOSTALGIA FOR NEW ENGLAND My wife and I spent a good part of our lives in New England. Because the holidays are so different there than in Florida, we get pretty nostalgic this time of year. Here, theres no snow, no frigid cold, no kids running around in snowsuits and mittens, now snow angels. Up north, the snowmen are not made of plastic and the snow is not created from cotton. We recently found a store in Boca filled with many of the foods that were not only part of our holiday celebration, but things we shopped for all year in New England. Weve made several visits to Josephs Classic Market in Boca Center and found lots of close-to-home items. Theres New England cod, New Bedford dried scallops and big Ma cintosh apples. Theres a tank full of Maine lobsters that can be steamed right in the store. Perhaps the most surprising find was Polar soda. I did a double take when I picked up one of the bottles and noticed the place of origin: Worcester, Massachusetts. Up north, wed get Polar soda in 2-liter bottles in stores like Stop & Shop and Shaws. Here, the bottles are a single liter, but its nice to see a product that hasnt been on our table for at least a dozen years. I remember my father was a big fan of Polar beverages. He had a special taste for a flavor I have never found since orange dry. When I left home to live on my own, I always made sure I had some in the refrigerator when my parents visited. Ah, the good old days. Mariah Carey Polar soda Bing Crosby

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 Planned Mobility is Just What Boca Raton Needs to Revive People and Things That Surround You!When you open your eyes, wherever you may be, what do you ac tually see? With what eyes do you perceive what is before or around you? Of course, this may depend on many factors. You may need to focus better, or your eye-sight may require a new exam. Furthermore, as it has been said, your point of view depends on your point of viewing! People observing the same event or object may report differently than others who are also contemplating the same at the very moment and location where you see what they also see! Its always beneficial to have a grid by which to interpret reality, to observe accurately what our eyes can grasp. The interpretation you give to what you see will vary in several ways, depending on different factors; some may be internal, while others are external. A friend once reported that distresses he had faced for several months prevented him from enjoying the most obvious pleasures around him. When things started getting better, one day he called his wifes attention to the flowers blooming in their front yard. His spouse was quick to make known that those flowers had been in bloom for several weeks already! Dont allow other preoccupations you are facing at any given moment to distort your perception, or to blind you to pleasant realities and doors of opportunity which may be opening for you where you are! Never concentrate your gaze at any problem you face. You can look above and beyond the problems where, more than likely, you shall contemplate better horizons and new vistas that may be opening up, besides all the good which perpetually surrounds your personal space! Never fail to notice other people some in need of your aid, and many more who are truly eager to bring encouragement to you! Dont ignore either possibility, both for the good you can provide as well as for the benefits you can derive from such interactions. Life is short and filled with problems. Your enjoyment of it depends on how you program your mind to interpret and, hopefully, enjoy what life offers, what you create with hands or mind, and the unsurpassable gifts which God bestows. Always look for some good even amidst the bad and ugly things you daily face!Planned Mobility for Boca Raton has been a long time coming. And now that it is here based on a 4-1 vote of the City Council Tuesday night we are expecting to see some major growth in the business sector east of I-95 between Spanish River Boulevard and Glades Road. Deputy City Manager George S. Brown explained Planned Mobility idea in great length at a three-hour public hearing Tuesday night. He said the ordinance change will create flexibility in what can locate in the nearly 1,000-acre parcel that used to be home to IBM. Development attorney Charlie Siemon summed up Big Blues pullout a few decades ago as traumatic. And finally, he said, the city is going to address it. The Boca Raton Tribune has been endorsing sustainable, well-planned growth in Bocas Northwest Sector. During the past six weeks, we have been publishing advertisements and advertorials addressing the concept of One Boca, One Future. The people behind this move have put a lot on the table, but it boils down to one thing. If you own property in the Northwest Sector, and you want to develop it under current Boca zoning laws, thats OK. If you want to do it under Planned Mobility, you can do that, too. Whatever suits you. Planned Mobility does allow more flexibility. It opens up the possibilities of building residential units. We agree with the idea that by con structing retail, commercial and industrial firms close to where people live, they can get to and from their jobs by bike or by walking, easing con gestion along some of Bocas major arteries. It would be wrong not to acknowledge the arguments of those opposed to this plan, chief among them, Councilman Anthony Majhess. He said it is his opinion that Planned Mobility wont work. That is his opinion, and he is entitled. During the hearing, he suggested that city staff look at tweaking the law so it can be applied in a more feasibility way at several other Planned Mobility sites that have not been addressed. Mr. Majhess feels this wont happen. We feel it should. We feel every concern should be addressed since this is a new concept for Boca. We do share one of his concerns. He said he feels the plan has the potential of increasing the current 42,500 households in Boca by 22 to 25 percent. But most of the additional units, he said, will be small, 700-square foot apartments, and feels this plan doesnt meet the wishes of the general public. What he could have said is that 700or 900-square foot, one-bedroom apartments are not Boca. The same was said by council members when Jim Batmasian proposed a development of small apartments at the Wildflower site. The council rejected this idea without debate. Reports are that Planned Mobility has been tried in nearby Boynton Beach, the area known as Renaissance Commons on Congress Avenue between Gateway Boulevard and Boynton Beach Boulevard. That area has become a thriving Mecca of stores, restaurants and residences. We know of that area and we know what it offers. We do know it seems to have attracted more traffic than it has relieved, and is, on occasion, very diffi cult to drive through. Boca has build traffic analysis into the Planned Mobility ordinance. And ironically, many of those who spoke at the hearing said they are con cerned it will create too LITTLE traffic, thus failing to provide the incentives for residents to leave their cars behind and either walk or bike. We also agree with Mayor Susan Whelchel who points out that Boca Raton is not a little village by the sea, it is a full-fledged city. We have edi torialized about that in the past. We are also in her corner when she talks about creating jobs to keep Bo cas young people in the city after they complete college. Councilwoman Constance Scott, chairwoman of the Community Redevelopment Agency which oversees downtown projects, said she feels very, very strongly that the path to future growth is well planned. As a whole, the council has come up with an intriguing idea that is worth the effort. They have toiled hard and we commend everyone who took part in the creation of this plan. We hope to see great changes soon.

Edition 126 11for news 24/7 go to bocaratontribune.com www.bocaratontribune.comDecember 14, 2012 through December 20, 2012 DIVORCE FLORIDA STYLEBy Mike Gora ColumnistsThe Boca Raton Tribune CONSIDERING SETTLEMENTQ My husband and I have been in divorce litigation for almost a year. We have a mediation coming up next week, and my attorney has been discussing my options with me. He has told me on several occa sions that in mediation we can reach a settlement that is far different on many of the issues that separate us than a judge could do if we go to trial. I have never quite understood the concept. I thought that divorce law was pretty well defined under Florida law, and when we negotiate a settlement agreement, it has to be proper under the Florida law. The issues we are going to try to settle include residential parenting, alimony, child support, and distribution, including the valuation of my husbands business, and some real estate. Please explain to me how we can settle the case, as my lawyer says, in ways that a judge cannot do. A There are many advantages which you and your husband can gain by settling your case, at mediation, without a trial. The first two are obvious, it will save you a lot of money in attorneys fees, and the case will be over, ending a very stressful time for you and your family. The more subtle advantage that you talk about is the ability to come to decisions in a settlement contract that a judge cannot give you after a trial. You and your husband will be negotiating a contract, just like two executives. As long as the contract does not have an illegal purpose, and is entered into freely and voluntarily, with full knowledge it is enforceable. Specifically, regarding the issues you mention: (1) In reaching an agreement on residential parenting and child support you and your husband can agree that he can have the children for 40% or more of the overnights, but also agree that such a plan will not reduce your child support. If you tried the case before a judge, a one-night difference per year, in over night visitation, changing your husbands nights with the children from 39% to 40% would cost you several thousands of dollars a year in child support. (2) You and your husband can agree on any alimony package, or none, that the two of you think is fair, without being bound by the Florida statute on alimony. You can make the permanent alimony non-modifiable, which the judge could not do after a trial. You can agree to bridge the gap alimony, for a period longer than the judge is allowed to grant under the applicable statute and case law. (3) If you and your husband have hired valuation experts to value your husbands business, and appraisers to appraise real estate or personal property the valuation experts may agree or disagree as to value. If you go to trial, the judge has limited options. He or she may accept the values of one expert, the other expert, or neither expert and ask you to come back with better evidence. The judge cannot average the opinions of the valuation experts. In mediation, you and your husband can agree to average the experts opinions of value in order to settle your case. Many other options you have in mediation do not exist in court. You should go to mediation prepared on all of the issues, with an open mind.Michael H.

Mr. Gora can be reached at mhgora@sbwlawfirm.com. SEVEN SECRETS OF SUCCESSFAITHBy Rick Warren There are many ways of defining success: status, power, promotions, money, and many other things. But one important measure of success is impact the influence individuals have on people surrounding them, whether in the workplace, the community, or their own homes. What difference has their life had on others? Looking historically, as well as spiritually, few people have made as much of an impact with their lives as the apostle Paul, whose life and writings are presented in the Bibles New Testament. By the end of his life, Paul had been instrumental in spreading the Christian faith across the entire Roman Empire, despite traveling mostly on foot. Imagine what he might have accomplished if he hed had a jet, a cellular phone, and a fax machine! Even though many of us devote our lives to pursuits in the business and professional world, I believe the life of Paul offers many lessons that we could apply to our own lives. Here are keys to his successful life: SENSE OF DIRECTION: To achieve success, it is important to know where you are going what your goals and objectives are. I run straight toward the goal in order to win the prize (Philippians 3:14). UNDERSTANDING: We need to be able to deal with unexpected circumstances and rise above adversity. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation (Philippians 4:12). COMMITMENT: Once we embark on an important enterprise, success requires willingness to persevere in the face of difficulties and challenges. I consider my life worth nothing to me, if only I may finish the race and complete the task the Lord Jesus has given me (Acts 20:24). COMPASSION: Just as the apostle Paul remained sensitive to the needs of people around him, we also must strive to protect the best interests of those working with us. I may have all knowledgeand the faith to move mountainsbut if I dont have love, it does me no good (1 Corinthians 13:2-3). ENTHUSIASTIC FAITH: Suc cessful leaders believe strongly in their mission, and their enthusiasm is contagious. I have the strength for all things through Christ who empowers me. I am ready for anything and equal to anything through Him who infuses inner strength into me (Philippians 4:13). SERVICE TO OTHERS: Selfcentered leaders generally have short tenures. The leader devoted to serving others, helping them reach their goals, is the one that finds eager followers. I will be glad to spend all I have, and myself as well, in order to help you (2 Corinthians 12:15). STAYING POWER: The adage reminds us, It is not how you start, but how you finish. This certainly was true of Paul. I am hard-pressed on all sides, but Im never frustrated; Im puzzled, but never in despair; I am persecuted, but Im never deserted by God; I may be knocked down but Im never knocked out! (2 Corinthians 4:8-9). Try building these qualities into your own life and see what happens. 2011, Purpose Driven Life. All rights reserved.

We think you shouldGo and Enjoy!Oh, That Rascal FDR Movie Review Franklin D. Roosevelt died before I was born, but his New Deal liberal policies were often a topic of my fathers grousing in our house. Hyde Park on the Hudson is not as much about FDRs politics or economics as it is about his love life. Who knew FDR was such a Don Juan? When he is played by Bill Murray, perhaps you can believe it. The title refers to Roosevelts family retreat, ruled over by Franklins starchy mother (Elizabeth Wilson). The story is set on a long weekend in 1939 in which the Roosevelts awaited the first ever visit by the King and Queen of England. FDR knew King George VI (Samuel West) had an ulterior motive when he agreed to travel with his wife and Queen Elizabeth (Olivia Colman), mother of the current British monarch. They desperately needed the help of the USA in the gathering storm of war, which would explode in just three months hence. The royals were quite stuffy and formal, which allows for much of the movies humor. Queen Elizabeth in particular is horrified that their hosts plan to serve hot dogs at a family picnic. Evidently no royal has ever deigned to taste the humble American snack. The social and political maneuverings are secondary to the allegedly true story of FDRs affair with a distant cousin. She is called Daisy (Laura Linney) here, but the story (by Richard Nelson) is inspired by the diaries of one Margaret Stuckley, which were discovered after her death at age 99. Whether or not FDR actually had an affair with Daisy is all a matter of conjecture. As presented here Daisy is but one of several mistresses FDR maintains simultaneously, despite the fact he was severely disabled by polio (which was hidden from the public with the complicity of the press) and married to unlovely Eleanor (Olivia Williams), who in this scenario knew full well her husbands discretions. Hyde Park depends heavily on the raffish charm of Bill Murray, who plays knaves and rotters we like anyway. FDR charms not only innocent Daisy, but the Queen and particularly the King of England, with whom he forms a bond. Director Roger Michell has given Murray free reign to be as outrageous as he needs to be. Laura Linney uses her considerable dramatic skill to expose the 32nd Presidents callous, thoughtless side. This film would confirm my fathers worst suspicions about FDR. For me it humanizes a man who has been put up on a pedestal and idealized, and it ac complishes it with great wit and humor.

Edition 126 23for news 24/7 go to bocaratontribune.com www.bocaratontribune.comDecember 14, 2012 through December 20, 2012Municipal NewsThe Boca Raton Tribune BOCA RATON -A mother and child escaped without injury Sunday, Dec. 2, after a stove top fire filled their apartment in the Boca Grande complex with smoke, said Assistant Fire Chief Michael Gergora. Crews arrived at the apartment on the sixth floor of the building at 233 S. Federal Highway at 6:01 p.m. to find heavy smoke filling the unit. Chief Gergora said the sprinkler system had been activated by the fire. The occupants fled after spotting the fire and waited for rescuers to extinguish the blaze. Firefighters put out the fire and worked quickly to prevent further water damage from the sprinklers. They also vented the apartment to rid the smoke. Stove Top Fire Fills Apartment with Smoke TALLAHASSEE In partnership with student government leaders, Floridas university presidents last week asked the state to invest an additional $118 million into the state university system for the 2013-14 school year. With that kind of investment, they said, they would be able to continue providing quality education without raising tuition by even one penny. The presidents announcement at the State Capitol kicked off the Aim Higher initiative, a student-led campaign focused on uniting students and community leaders in supporting more funding for higher education and raising awareness of the universities strong returns on public investments, including a big boost in local economies. The presidents highlighted the university systems powerful economic impact nearly $80 billion statewide annually and its vital role in training Floridas future workforce. They supported tying the additional state investment to performance goals, such as increased graduation rates. We encourage all Floridians to stand with us and our 330,000 students, said University of West Florida President Judy Bense. Lets invest in future doctors and scientists who someday could save our lives, future engineers who will build safe roads and bridges and future teachers who will provide our children with first-class educations. Lets invest in the future of our great state. Among the 12 state-operated schools of higher education is Florida Atlantic University, based in Boca Ra ton. Although tuition at Floridas public universities remains among the lowest in the country, students and their families have faced double-digit tuition increases in recent years as universities have coped with severe state budget cuts. Funding to the state university system has been cut nearly 40 percent during the past five years. A state investment of an additional $118 million would generate the revenue of a 15 percent tuition increase across the system next year, university leaders said. "I understand that students and their families have greatly invested in the university system during the past five years to help maintain a highquality education throughout Florida," said Cortez Whatley, president of the Florida Student Association and student body president at the University of Central Florida. For the sake of Floridas students, businesses and communities, we need to keep a college education affordable and accessible to all. State funding, which once covered about three-fourths of the cost of a students higher education, now pays for less than half at most state universities. Floridas public universities have a strong track record of spending tax and tuition dollars efficiently. As state funding has shrunk and enrollment has risen, universities have saved millions of dollars through cost-cutting efforts and the elimination or consolidation of academic programs. We cannot continue to tighten our belts without impacting our students, Bense said. For many of us, that may mean fewer class sections and students waiting longer to graduate. University of Florida President Bernie Machen focused on state universities roles as economic powerhouses and hotbeds of innovation. Floridas universities attract more than a billion dollars of research money to the state each year, which helps to find cures for diseases, develop new technologies and prepare students for a variety of jobs and industries. Just last week, the University of Florida opened its Research and Aca demic Center at Lake Nona in Orlando, anchored by UCFs College of Medicine. The center joins a burgeoning Medical City that has been described as the biggest economic game changer for Central Florida since Walt Disney World. Its projected to generate 30,000 jobs and a total annual impact of $7.6 billion by the end of 2017. Our universities are heavily invested in our communities and our state, Machen said. We are leading job creators and innovators, and we are the key to our state meeting industry demands for highly qualified employees. An investment in Floridas public universities is an investment our states economic future.University Presidents Seek State Investment, Pledge No Tuition Increases Floridas Capitol TALLAHASSEEE Frank T. Brogan, Chancellor of the State University System of Florida, and former president of Florida Atlantic University in Boca Raton, released the following statement following a meeting of state university presidents and student leaders: Time and again, our university system has proven its ability to provide some of the greatest returns on investments for the state of Florida," said Chancellor Frank T. Brogan. "Our students are graduating, getting jobs and helping to grow Floridas economy. If anyone doubts whether that investment is a good one, just ask our students and families. Theyve been asked to invest more year after year, and they have done so because they know higher education leads to a brighter future.Chancellor Brogan comments on Aim Higher proposal State University System Chancellor Frank T.

Pictured with them is Mary Dent-Maher, director of the Florence Fuller Child Development Center in West Boca Raton. The School District of Palm Beach County and the Association of Educational Secretaries and Office Professionals (AESOP) have reached a tentative agreement in contract negotiations. This pact provides a wage increase for the 2,000 employees represented by the union. The two sides had been in negotiations since last May and concluded bargaining on December 5. Some highlights of the agreement include: Salary increase of $0.72 cents per hour for all AESOP represented employees retroactive to July 1, 2012. In addition, AESOP employees will receive a one-time bonus of $500. AESOP employees whose children are enrolled in any of the districts After School Child Care programs will be eligible for a 25 percent employee discount. The additional pay for employees assigned to serve medically complex students is increased 50 cents from $1.50 to $2 per hour. The additional pay for paraprofessional employees who are assigned to a defined emotionally/ behaviorally disordered (E/BD) self-contained unit on a full-time basis is increased 50 cents per hour from 75 cents to $1.25 per hour. The attendance incentive pay is discontinued effective January 1, 2013. The funding for the attendance incentive pay was combined with the initial district 2 percent salary offer to achieve the 72 cents per hour increase. Given the uniform 72 cent increase to the hourly rate, the effective salary percentage increase will vary based on the employees current salary level. The average salary increase across the employee group is 5 percent. After considering the elimination of the attendance incentive, the net increase to base salary is 2 percent AESOP will conduct a ratifica tion vote of its represented employees later this month. The retroactive wage increases back to July 1, 2012 and the one-time $500 bonus payments will be made after employee ratification and School Board approval of this new Agreement. Pending employee ratification and School Board approval, these wage increases and bonus payments will be made in January. Professionals Reach Tentative Contract OK

Its located at 200 East Palmetto Park Road. The luxury brokerage purchased the new 3,100 square foot office space, located on the ground floor of building, from the developer, The Lojeta Group. Nestler Poletto Sothebys currently leases 2,800 square feet at One South Ocean Boulevard in Boca Raton, a spot it has oc cupied for the past five years. Brokerage co-owner John Poletto said the timing is perfect to move. We really wanted to be downtown because that is where all of the action is right now, and where people want to live, work and play, said Poletto. We took over in 2011 and our sales pace proved that this is where we want to be. The strength of the building and location makes 200 East the perfect home for us. The move is also strategic because Nestler Poletto Sothebys is the exclusive marketing and sales group for 200 East.

The project only has a limited number of brand new of condominiums and townhomes available at this time. Nestler Poletto has done a great job for us since coming on board, said Lon Tabatchnick, whose development company built 200 East in 2009. Now that their entire operation will be based here full-time; their local, national and global reach will put us in a better position to sell out the building quickly. Tabatchnick and Poletto attribute 200 Easts success to the fact that it is a highquality project in the heart of downtown Boca. All you have to do is look around because a lots happening downtown, said Mark Nestler, co broker and owner of Nestler Poletto Sothebys. Theyre getting new luxury retail stores, high-end restaurants and developing a bustling nightlife. Theres more going on here now than ever before. Its why we want to be here too. The new location also puts Nestler Poletto Sothebys and its 50 plus sales agents in a central location between Manalapan to the north and Hillsboro Beach to the South. Our new office not only lets us focus on downtown living, but we will be better positioned to service all of our luxury products including country club and gated communities further west and waterfront neighborhoods to the east.

But when the accountant walked through the door, he was greeted with a loud Surprise! He looked around and saw his co-workers from a local internet marketing firm and his boss, who handed him the key to a 2013 Ford Escape. Oh my God, said Ninos, who also was celebrating his 52nd birthday today. Wow, I am speechless. I cant believe this. BMI Elite CEO Brandon Rosen said Ninos deserves the special gift because he is loyal, honest, trustworthy and a hard worker. His car is falling apart, but unfortunately he cannot afford to buy a new one so we are giving him this brand new Ford Escape SUV to say thank you for everything that he does, Rosen said. I believe that this will change his life more than we all can imagine. Ninos, the companys chief financial officer for two years, was driving a 15-year-old Ford with 99,000 miles on it. While he was surprised, he was not by the gesture. You couldnt ask for a better company to work for and group of people to work with, he said. They take care of their employees. Its like a big family here. Dan Lansman, BMI Elite president, said the company, which is approaching 3-years-old, takes care of its employees and believes in rewarding good effort. He is a great worker, a guy who calls you at 5 oclock in the mornings on his day off to check in about the office, said Lansman, who has known Ninos for 11 years. So I just wanted to show him that we appreciate everything he does for us. Lansman said they considered giving Ninos a bonus for his birthday. But they decided to on the $30,000 SUV instead. We thought it would be a nice personal touch, something hell have for a long time and to totally surprise him at an event like this, is perfect, he said. The car was decorated with balloons and ribbons and Maroone Ford threw in three years of free service. I think its amazing that someone who runs a small company could really take care of their employees, said Paul Wuest, the salesman who sold Rosen the car. Obviously the gentleman has done a lot of work for them and it shows that they really appreciate it.Hard Work Pays off for Local Accountant BUSINESS BITS BOCA RATON -Incapital, a leading underwriter and distributor of fixed income and other financial products, announced that Chris OConnor has joined the firm as managing director of capital markets.

Obamacare: Healthcare Boon or Government Boondoggle? CARLO BARBIERIBy Carlo Barbieri Whether you like it or not, Obamacare is here to stay. President Barack Obamas main administrative act of his first term, officially known as the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA), survived the 2012 elec tion since its creator was re-elected. Obamas challenger, Mitt Romney, vowed many times to repeal the bill on Day 1 of his presidential term. That will not happen now. Obamacare a measure thats at least 2,400 pages long, though some count as many as 2,700 pages -has many foes and many friends. Proponents say health insurance will now reach many people who never had it before. It removes some challenges in the healthcare market. Under Obamacare, those with so-called pre-existing conditions such as diabetes will be able to get health care coverage, but not until 2014. To date, most carriers have denied them coverage. But Obamacare has a large share of foes. Among them are employers who say the cost of covering all employees will be prohibitively high. They said they will either not hire new staff or will hire part time help only (who would not get employee benefits). Others say they may go out of business. CNN Chief Medical Correspondent Dr. Sanjay Gupta sees Obamacare more as insurance regulation than healthcare regulations. There are some specific things that are going to kick in for everybody for adults and children alike such as not being able to charge higher premiums for being sick and not being denied coverage for pre-existing conditions. He said Obamacare may provide some relief to those paying very high premiums Polls indicate that public opinion has shifted over time from general support for health care reform to gradual opposition. Specific elements were very popular across the political spectrum, with the notable exception of the mandate to purchase insurance. Democrats favored the law, while Republicans and Independents did not. For example, a Reuters-Ipsos poll during June 2012 indicated the following: all were against the law, with 44% supporting it. By party affiliation, 75% of Democrats, 27% of Independents and 14% of Republicans favored the law overall. ance companies from denying coverage to people with pre-existing conditions. dren to stay on their parents' insurance until age 26. companies with more than 50 employees to provide insurance for their employees. Other topics receiving majority support from all political groups were: creation of insurance pools so small businesses and the uninsured have access to insurance exchanges to take advantage of large group pricing benefits and providing subsidies on a sliding scale to aid individuals and families who cannot afford health insurance As of February 2012, polls said 72% of registered voters believed PPACA's individual mandate was unconstitutional. Also, by a margin of 50% to 39%, Americans said the Supreme Court should overturn the entire statute. (This didnt happen either.) The following are some specifics from the PPACA: Health insurance providers can't cancel your coverage once you get sick a practice known as "rescission" unless you committed fraud or intentionally withhold facts about your health when you apply for coverage. Youth can be covered under a parent's plan until they turn 26. Children with pre-existing conditions cannot be denied coverage. Health insurance providers may not place a lifetime maximum on benefits. The law expands Medicare's coverage of preventive services, such as screenings for colon, prostate and breast cancer, which are now free to beneficiaries. Medicare will also pay for an annual wellness visit to the doctor. If you are older than 65, the law is narrowing a gap in the Medicare Part D prescription drug plan known as the "doughnut hole." But here are some uncertainties: We do not know what plans insurance companies have to work around the bill in order to earn more money. The measure is dependent upon de facto subsidies to these companies through such means as the mandate and therefore the insurance industrys manipulations are critical to the bills costs. The rules for expansion of Medicaid require payments from state budgets which more than a few states dont want to do. How much of this is verbiage and how much is reality remains to be seen Employers with 50 or more workers are required to have health insurance, but what if some break up their firms into smaller opera tions? And what if smaller firms drop their health plans? And what if large firms change the nature of their health insurance? How many will be hurt and in what ways? How will millions of Americans know what to do about this bill -and when? This is a bill written for bureaucrats and insurance compa nies, not ordinary citizens. A copy of the entire law is available online. It would be a good idea to familiarize yourself with it right away.

Edition 126 29for news 24/7 go to bocaratontribune.com www.bocaratontribune.comDecember 14, 2012 through December 20, 2012SportsThe Boca Raton Tribune SportsBy: Pedro Heizer The Fort Lauderdale Strikers have taken a step into the right direc tion once again as they announced that Traffic Sports, the company that owns the team, has appointed Tim Robbie to the position of Managing Director of Team Personnel and Stadium Development with the task of securing a long-term home at a soccer-specific stadium in South Florida. The success of the Fort Lauderdale Strikers requires a facility which enables the team to give the fans, sponsors and media the experience they expect in professional sports today, said Aaron Davidson, President of Traffic Sports USA. Traffic Sports has given me a mandate to seek a permanent, first class home for the Strikers, said Tim Robbie. Our top priority is to work with the city of Fort Lauderdale to renovate Lockhart Stadium as part of the overall development of the area. However, continued Robbie. We are prepared to explore any and all options for a new soccer facility in the South Florida area. Given the numerous meetings and conversa tions I have had on the matter, I am optimistic our efforts to find a worthy, long-term home for the Strikers will be successful. Robbies previous position of team president will be assumed by Tom Mulroy, an industry veteran with ties to the South Florida soc cer community reaching back more than 35 years. Its an honor to serve as the president of one of the most historic soccer franchises in America, added Mulroy. Its very exciting to become president of the club with the growth of the NASL and to have the opportunity to work side by side with Tim Robbie to fulfill this commitment of establishing a permanent home stadium for the Strikers. I am thrilled to be part of it all. Robbie had served as president of the Strikers since 2011, when the team tripled its average attendance from the previous year and ended the season as runners-up in the NASL Championship Series. I have the greatest respect for Tim and for what he has done with the Strikers, said Mulroy. I have some big shoes to fill. Mulroy first came into contact with the Fort Lauderdale Strikers back in 1976 when he was signed by the team as a player. From starting as a player with this franchise and now being president, its a complete honor, said Mulroy. The background that Tom has in soccer, his love for the game and the community, and his passion to see the game succeed are going to be of tremendous benefit for the Strikers going forward, Robbie said of his successor. Built in 1959 as an athletic facility for local high schools, Lockhart Stadium is part of a sports complex that also includes Fort Lauderdale Stadium. Lockhart was the home field for both the original Fort Lauderdale Strikers of the original North American Soccer League as well as Miami Fusion F.C. of Major League Soccer. During the gap in which the Miami Fusion folded and the rebranded Fort Lauderdale Strikers began play, the stadium was used for high school football games for Fort Lauderdale High School, Stra nahan High School, Northeast High School, and Dillard High School for home high school football games. The stadium also served as the home of the Florida Atlantic University football team from 2003 until 2010. Lockhart is a facility filled with rich soccer history, said Robbie. However, there is no doubt it certainly needs to be upgraded to meet the needs of a permanent home for a professional soccer team in South Florida. Finding a permanent home, an 8,000 to 10,000-seat stadium, is an evident progression, added Mulroy. The re-branding of the Strikers has had a lot of community success, and the people at Traffic Sports are committed with the team and they want them to be around for a long time. Its how all the successful teams do it. The Strikers averaged 3,615 fans this season, which ranked fourth in the NASL. San Antonio drew over 9,176 per game in their inaugural season, and next season they will move to Toyota Field, an 8,000-seat soccer-specific stadium funded entirely with private money. The fact the ownership is committed to a stadium is the reason I thought it was the right time to be involved, said Mulroy of why he accepted the position of team president. I think that having a place a team can call home is key to keeping a soccer franchise in South Florida for the long haul.Fort Lauderdale Strikers Announce Pursuit of rffrnrt

The Badgers proceeded to pull ahead by eight points, 49-41, after a basket by Tessa Cichy at the 14:47 mark. The back-and-forth action continued with FAU answering with eight straight points to tie the game after Turners layup with under 13 minutes to play. The game featured 10 ties and 10 lead changes. Turner paced the offensive attack with a season-high 25 points on 10-of-24 shooting, including making both 3-point field goals. Junior forward Chenise Miller scored 12 points and grabbed a team-high eight rebounds before fouling out of the game. Schrouder rounded out the double-figure scorers with 10 points. The Owls forced 27 turnovers after entering the game ranking fifth nationally in turnover margin. FAU returns to the court on Saturday, December 15 at 2 p.m. against in-state rival Stetson University.FAU Womens Basketball Drops Overtime Thriller at Wisconsin on Big Ten Network By Chad BeattieKansas City, Kans. Lynn Universitys mens soccer team continues to make headlines with the announcement of Jason Sangha as a National Soccer Coaches Association of America Third Team All-American on Tuesday. Sangha anchored a defense that led the Fighting Knights to winning the 2012 NCAA Division II national championship. A sophomore from Southampton, England, Sangha was the center back on a squad that tied for the national lead in shutouts (13), was second in goals against average (0.51) and ninth in shutout percentage (0.52). He was already honored as a Daktronics First Team All-American as well as a AllSunshine State Conference Second Team selection. Lynn has now recorded at least one NSCAA All-American for nine consec utive years and 26 of 27 overall. The Fighting Knights went 20-2-1 overall, won their 10th Sunshine State Conference title and claimed the fourth national title in program history.Lynns Sangha Garners NSCAA All-America Recognition By Chad BeattieThe Sunshine State Conference (SSC) will begin sponsoring the sports of mens lacrosse effective with the Spring 2014 sea son. The addition of lacrosse will increase the number of sports sponsored by the SSC to 17. The move was recently approved by the Sunshine State Conference Presidents Council. League bylaws require that half of the conferences member institutions offer a particular sport before it may become a conference-sponsored sport. At present, Florida Southern College, Florida Tech, Rollins College, Saint Leo University, and the University of Tampa field mens lacrosse teams. Additionally, Lynn University has announced its intention to add mens lacrosse beginning with the 2014 season. The entire conference is very excited that we are adding mens lacrosse to our conference-sponsored sport options, SSC Commissioner Jay Jones said. We feel certain that the sport will bring a lot of positive attention and recognition to the SSC. As the sport continues its rapid growth throughout the country and in Florida, we believe that our conference institutions will quickly become Division II leaders in lacrosse and be able to attract some of the best student-athletes in the game to the Sunshine State. League administrators and lacrosse coaches will soon begin work on formulating sport policies and schedules, among other things. The SSC is no stranger to that process, having added mens and womens swimming as conference-sponsored sports in 2010-11. With womens lacrosse also growing among SSC institutions, it is anticipated the SSC will begin sponsoring that sport within the next few years. Located in the SunTrust Plaza off Winter Parks famous Park Avenue, the Sunshine State Conference is the only NCAA conference headquartered in the state of Florida. Its nine member institutions, all private schools located within the state, are: Barry University (Miami Shores), Eckerd College (St. Petersburg), Florida Southern College (Lakeland), Florida Institute of Technology (Melbourne), Lynn University (Boca Raton), Nova Southeastern University (Ft. Lauderdale), Rollins College (Winter Park), Saint Leo University (Saint Leo), and the University of Tampa. The SSC currently sponsors 16 intercollegiate sports that compete in NCAA Division II. More than 2,000 studentathletes participate in mens and womens cross country, mens and womens soccer, volleyball, mens and womens basketball, mens and womens swimming, mens and womens golf, mens and womens tennis, baseball, softball, and womens rowing. Founded in 1975, SSC schools have won 79 NCAA Division II national championships. SSC teams have claimed at least two national titles for each of the past nine years.Sunshine State Conference Announces Plans to Sponsor Mens Lacrosse Beginning in 2014
