Both were constantly working in New York, Hollywood, Europe and the Orient.

Schmidt College of Sciences Center for Molecular Biology and Biotechnology at Florida Atlantic University has been named a charter fellow of the Na tional Academy of Inventors (NAI). I am indeed honored to be elected a charter fellow of the National Academy of Inventors, a group of very distinguished scientists, said Weissbach. Our research here at FAU has concentrated on the role of oxidative damage in aging, especially with regard to how cells protect against this damage and the differences between normal and cancer cells. We hope that this ba sic research can be translated into new therapies for age-related diseases and novel approaches to develop drugs that will specifically kill cancer cells, but not normal cells. Weissbach has had a prominent ca reer in biochemistry and molecular biology, receiving a number of awards and honors including the American Chemical Society Enzyme Award. He also was listed as one of the top 300 most cited authors (1961-1976), the Townsend Harris Medal from City College of New York and the George Washington University Distinguished Alumni Award. I cannot think of a better individual to be elected as a charter fellow to the NAI, said Gary W. Perry, Ph.D, dean of FAUs Charles E. Schmidt College of Science. Professor Weissbach has a distinguished career as a biochemist, an acute awareness of potential intellectual property and licensing issues regarding drug discovery. He holds several patents on his inventions at FAU and we are proud of him serving in this capacity. Election to NAI fellow status is a high-professional distinction accorded to academic inventors who have demonstrated a highly prolific spirit of innovation in creating or facilitating outstanding inventions that have made a tangible impact on quality of life, economic development and the welfare of society. The 98 innovators elected to NAI fellow status represent 54 universities and nonprofit research institutes. Together, they hold more than 3,200 U.S. patents. The NAI charter fellows will be inducted by the U.S. Commissioner for Patents, Margaret A. Focarino, from the United States Patent and Trademark Office, during the second annual Conference of the National Academy of Inventors, on Friday, Feb. 22 in Tampa.FAU Professor Named Charter Fellow of National Academy of InventorsDr. Herbert Weissbach

C.M.0 Editorial Executive Editor Managing Editor Online Edition Editor Social Media Software Engineer Lights on for the New Year. Its now legal in FloridaI remember when I was approaching age 16. My father began the task of teaching me how to drive. He took me to a large parking area and told me to take the wheel. Thats how it all began. My father also taught me the rules of the road, and the guidelines of the road you know, the things you do that arent really recognized by law, but are things you should do to help your roadway buddies. One of them is this: If you see a police cruiser at the side of the road, flash your headlights at oncoming cars to warn them. Dad did it and I following suit. It was something I never really figured would be recognized by the authorities. But apparently, Florida did, and had ruled it illegal. But not any more. I was checking over one of those lists of unusual laws that go into effect each Jan. 1. And in Florida, as of Jan. 1, it is no longer against the law to flash your headlights to warn drivers about a speed trap set up by police. I scrolled down and found a couple of other new laws in Florida that are a bit twisted. In Florida, if you own a swamp buggy, you no longer have to register it as a motor vehicle. Also, one of the new laws on the books is Florida is this: It is now illegal to film someone without their knowledge in a residential dwelling. This one is going to be tough to enforce, with so many people armed with video cameras in their cell phones. There are unusual laws in other states, too. Illinois is imposing a law cracking down on those who possess, sell or distribute shark fins. (The range of this law should be limited, considering the lengthy distance from Illinois to any ocean.) Heres one from my own home state of Massachusetts. As of Jan. 1, plastic bottles are to be considered contraband. Concord will be the first town in the nation to outlaw plastic bottles. A lot of water and soda drinkers will have to switch back to glass or cans. Finally, it turns out that Florida and my other adopted state of Rhode Island have something in common. They are among 10 states including Arizona, Colorado, Missouri, Montana, Ohio, Oregon, Vermont and Washington State to raise their minimum wage by 10 to 35 cents an hour. BYE, BYE CHRISTMAS TREE I hope you still dont have a live Christmas tree in your house. If so, it has probably turned brown and is a major fire hazard. The City of Boca Raton is conducting a Christmas tree collection program through Jan. 18.

The citys Recreation Services Department will pick up the trees and will chip them into mulch for Gumbo Limbo Nature Center. For additional information please call 561-393-7812.

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. Facing New Beginnings With Courage! By Douglas HeizerTHOUGHTS FROM THE PUBLISHER Mayor Whelchel Offers Comments, Suggestions on Planned MobilityFor the past two weeks, I have devoted my columns to a discussion of the Planned Mobility ordinance which the Boca Raton City Council adopted last week on a vote of 4-1. I sent a copy of last weeks column to Mayor Susan Whelchel, who has responded with her comments and suggestions about our stance. I am yield ing my column space to her this week for a couple of reasons. As mayor of the city, her comments are very important. And because the ordinance change proposal led to the dissemi nation of misinformation through out the city, we want her to comment and make the various parts of the law crystal clear. Here are her comments, unedited and in their entirety: Hi Doug, I thought you may be interested in the following comments. I appreciate you sharing your editorial with me. Following are some comments and suggestions for you. Note that the area we approved for possible Planned Mobility development is WEST of I-95 on the north and south sides of Yamato Road. It does not extend down to Glades Road. The 1,000 + acre area near the IBM facility is what is covered by the new regulations. This area included along with IBM other related and compatible businesses. This is not a whatever suits you kind of regulation. It provides the flexibility, within specific guidelines, to introduce uses new to the area, including residential. Regarding tweaking the ordinance, this will need to be done as the other areas that are designated for Planned Mobility come in for possible development. The hospital area, the Town Center area, and the Lamson property will need to have their own rules. Those rules will be closely modeled on the Planned Mobility rules we adopted Tuesday night but they will need to be responsive to the unique characteris tics of each of the other areas, because each of those areas is different. The purported increase of 25 percent of households is something of a scare tactic in my book. It is unrealis tic to expect this increase. Remember that we limited the number of new multi-family residential units in the northwest area to 2,500. To be more specific about the Jim Batmasian issue, Jim and his team presented a concept plan for the Wild flower property that proposed a plan for 40 to 80 units ranging in size from 700 to 1,300 square feet--it was totally a concept plan. The City Council did not comment on the proposal because it was and remains our objective to have an attractive public amenity, such as a restaurant, on the property. I do not recall any comments about the size of the proposed units. While we are on the topic, just how are apartments that have an average size of 900 square feet not Boca? We are a full service city with a diverse population within diverse eco nomic tiers. Why would we not want a diversity of housing types? Dont we want to attract young professionals who will work at good jobs in the northwest area and the city as a whole to live in the city and be part of our community? I think the answer to those questions is YES. Do we judge peoples worth within the community by the size of their dwelling unit? Are we really that shallow? I certainly hope NOT. I am glad however, that overall you see the value of Planned Mobility to the future of the City. I hope this information has helped clarify some of the issues. Best Regards and Merry Christmas, Susan Whelchel We at the Tribune and all in Boca Raton appreciate the mayor taking time to discuss the ordinance and to clarify some of the issues. The Boca Tribune has always supported the Planned Mobility concept in the northwest part of the city, and pointed out that other locations also need the flexibility this ordinance brings. We will follow developments closely and report on them as they occur. We also wish Mayor Whelchel, her family and all residents in the city of Boca Raton and its neighboring com munities a wonderful holiday season and Happy New Year.Everyone should face any new beginning with zest and enthusiasm if good things are to emerge from that experience. It is always good to be forward-looking, but far better to be forward moving! Looking ahead offers invitations that need to be answered. The future is always calling us, humans, but only those who respond with decisive action shall benefit from the challenges being presented! A forward-looking attitude alone will never advance you beyond the status-quo. And that is not the posture anyone desires to observe, for new opportunities are calling us, new challenges await everyone, everywhere! And challenges are not to be feared but simply to be confronted with courage and decisive action! New beginnings usually occur after something else has ended. An old year concludes, but a new one immediately arrives, leaving behind both the good and the bad which previously took place. Some things will be repeated, but new projects also await execution and fresh ventures to be launched. Life never stands still! The same is true with the conclusion of one level of schooling. Instead of stopping there, why not consider higher levels which will increase your knowledge and skills, while providing better opportunities ahead? The difficulties to be faced are no reason to desist or be discouraged, for the wherewithal for their execution will always be available! Just like past events saw countless barriers and diverse problems, any new beginning will also have its share of unpleasant occurrences. Nevertheless, these dont signify a complete stop but only a momentary detour, or perhaps a meaning ful change to ensure the full, legitimate success being sought! Always remember that no one can ever rush to success. If it is to come, it will always require diligent effort, often accompanied by sweat and tears. All difficulties encountered along the way towards the realization of any project do not signify that they are impossible; it probably only means that the effort will require extra time and labor!

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. New Years Resolutionlead wellFAITHBy Casey Cleveland Q: I am in the process of getting divorced from a cop after an eighteen year marriage. He has a good salary, I dont. He has a pension plan, all saved during the marriage, I dont. He can afford to pay me some alimony and child support, he wont. I know he wont because we were at the office of the mediator in the courthouse, you know the cheaper kind and, after two hours he walked out because he refused to agree to any reasonable settlement, taking the position that since he earned it all was his. He said that our legislature was going to ban permanent alimony next year, and if he did not agree to alimony in a contract he would be able to get out of a judge ordered permanent alimony after the new legislation passes. Is he correct? Is our Republican legislature continuing the War on Women that I heard about during the presidential campaign? A: Your cop seems to be a little right and a lot wrong. As to his wish to keep all of the marital assets for himself because he earned it he has no chance of success. The equitable distribution statute is virtually bullet proof when it comes to equally splitting marital assets that is anything ac cumulated during the marriage as the result of marital labor and savings. So far the legislature is not messing with that concept. On the other hand he appears to be right about the suggested demise of periodic permanent alimony. Under the proposed new statute a judge would not be able to award permanent periodic alimony but will have the power to grant durational alimony for a number of years equal to or less than the length of the marriage after the first seven years of marriage. Additionally, the proposed new statute proposes a right granted to anyone who was divorced within two years before the passage of the legislation to go back to court to change the alimony plan from permanent to durational or less. There is a quirk in that process: (1) if the permanent periodic alimony is agreed to in a marital settlement agreement, a contract, it is unlikely that a court could set it aside due to the constitutional protection granted to contract rights, but (2) if the permanent award came after a trial and judgment there would be no bar to the application of the proposed new statute. In years of practice I have never met a man who wanted to give his wife alimony, of any kind. Apparently there were a couple of men in the legisla ture, who had recently undergone the divorce process, who have started and pushed the pending legislation. Sounds like sour grapes.If we lose sight of people, we lose sight of the very purpose of leadership. Tony Dungy So it is here once again. The New Year is upon us and we find ourselves thinking about new beginnings, fresh starts, and a bright future. We usually prepare for this time by pondering what might be different or better for the year to come. Better known as New Years resolutions. As a pastor, I love this time of year because it reminds me of the newness of life, forgiveness of sin, and freedom from the past, that Jesus promises can be found in Him. And with this newness, forgiveness, and freedom come an amazing privilege and response from those who have been touched by this love of God. We are set in motion, given a purpose, called to love God, to love others, and to share this good news. That is awesome. Seriously, think about it for a moment. Being transformed by the love of God is not just for us. It is totally not about usthis should be both relieving and refreshing. So then who is it about, really? The Bible tells us it is about God, His glory, loving Him and enjoying him forever. And one of the very practical applications of being a part of Gods story is loving others well. If we are to truly move in this direc tion we should consider how well we are leading those within our sphere of influence. Because we all have leadership opportunities, all of us. And leading people gives us an incredible opportunity in loving people. May I just encourage you with the truth that God has placed specific people in your life that can be forever changed based on the way you speak into their life. Anyone from your daughter, to a child you coach, to your employee, to a neighbor. Your influence is huge, and you are accountable. So Back to your New Years resolutions. Would you consider this year making a priority, a goal, a resolution, in the area of your leadership? I challenge you think through and specifically name those God has placed in your life to influence. I challenge you to begin praying for them by name. And I challenge you to commit yourself, as a leader this year, to the following 4 Cs of leadership as developed by Bill Hybels. 1. Character 2. Competency 3. Chemistry 4. Calling Character must always be first because if this goes so does your leadership. Commit yourself this year to being honest about any areas you are tempted to compromise your integrity. And then pursue the absolute opposite of your compromise. Competency is critical no matter if you are CEO or mom, or both. Commit yourself this year to learning how to do your job better. Read a book, take a course, get a mentor. Do something, move forward somehow. Chemistry is a must between those you are leading and yourself. How effective can you be with someone who feels they are not valued or even liked? Commit yourself to developing a deeper relationship this year with those you lead. And last but not least is calling. There is no greater way to ensure your calling as a leader than by reading the Bible. Really. Because only in the pages of Gods story can you fully see your place and purpose within your own story. Lead well this year. Much Love-Casey

January 10, 2013 through January 16,2013www.bocaratontribune.com B2 Edition 129 Section BBoca Life & Arts Entertainment Skip SheffieldA Treat for Garage band Members of a Certain AgeIf you were in a band back in the 1960s, you will really relate to Not Fade Away. I was and I did. However my companion, a woman 15 years younger than I, couldnt see what the big deal was. Not Fade Away is a highly personalized memoir by Sopranos creator David Chase, 67. Chase, who is two years older than I, dreamed of being a star drummer in a rock n roll band. As a teenager he played the sock hops, keggers and teen clubs of suburban New Jersey. As a teenager I did the same thing, only in South and Central Florida. Like Chase I was strongly influenced by the British Invasion bands such as the Beatles, Kinks, Animals and Rolling Stones. The latter group did a version of the Buddy Holly song Not Fade Away, which gives the film its title. Wouldnt you know my most suc cessful group played that very song, with me up front singing and shaking my maracas like Mick Jagger. Neither Chase nor I became a rock star, but we still have a profound love for the music of our high school and college era. And so I am a big sucker for Chases story of a garage bands struggles, dreams and disappointments. The main character is Doug las (John Magaro), a curly-haired drummer who discovers he is more valuable as a singer. Douglas best girlfriend and No. 1 fan is the willowy, winsome Grace (Bella Heathcote), who looks like a cross between Jean Shrimpton and Twiggy. Those were Mod Era fashion models for those too young to know. The band has its typical squabbles, rivalries and misunderstandings. Some band members always dream bigger than others and some are more single-minded in their career pursuit. Then there are the inevitable objections of parents, played by James Gandolfini and Molly Price, who cant understand why their nice boy wants to be such a noisy ruffian. This is probably not so interesting for those who have never been there, but believe me, Chases fable rings true in a fleeting, melancholy way. No, it will never fade away for me either. Three stars A Disaster of Impossible Proportions There are disasters and then there is The Impossible, a Spanish film from the makers of the chilling thriller The Orphanage, including director Juan Antonio Bayona and screenwriter Sergio G. Sanchez, working with real-life survivor Ma ria Belon. The familys nationality is changed from Spanish to British. Maria is played by Naomi Watts. Her husband Henry Belon is played by Ewan McGregor. The couple is on a Christmas vacation at a posh seaside resort in Thailand. The stage is set with festive holiday trappings and carefree sun and fun. Unbeknownst to anyone, one of the worst natural disasters is about to happen. A tsunami, spawned by earthquakes far away, hit Asia with a massive wall of wa ter on Dec. 26, 2004. The Impossible is a saga of relentless, unpitying destruction of everything in the tsunamis path. When the wave hits, Maria is separated from her husband, but she miraculously finds her eldest son Lucas (Tom Holland), and the two literally cling together for survivor. Both Watts and McGregor are powerful professionals, but the real surprise is young Tom Holland in a star-making turn. The Impossible gets a bit relentless and mired literally in the mud and debris, but it is one of the best-made, most convincing disaster movies of all time. Three and a half stars Holocaust Memory Play at Willow Theater The Womens Theatre Project is back with a second production, The Interview, opening Friday Jan. 4 and running through Jan. 20 at the Willow Theater of Sugar Sand park, 300 S. Military Trail, Boca Raton. The Interview is the searing memory play by award-winning writer Faye Sholiton. Directed by Genie Croft, the play stars Harriet Oser as Bracha Weissman, who has become an emotional recluse after the loss of her family to Nazi death camps. Patti Gardner plays Ann Meshenberg, who records Brachas testimony on video. Irene Adjan is Brachas daughter Rifka, and Christopher Mitchell is the videographer. Playwright Faye Sholiton is scheduled to attend opening night. Tickets are $25. Call 561-3473948.
Edition 129 B3Section B January 10, 2013 through January 16,2013www.bocaratontribune.com Boca Life & ArtsDELRAY BEACH -Theatre at Arts Garage has announced that famed playwright Israel Horovitzs latest work, Gloucester Blue, will make its world premiere at the Delray Beach venue on Jan. 25th. Master story-teller Israel Horovitz continues his Gloucester Series of plays, using the intimate locale of Gloucester, Mass., to tell epic stories of sex, murder and intrigue. Horovitz will be in South Florida during the month of January collaborating with director Lou Tyrrell on the production. Israel Horovitz is one of our finest American playwrights living today, said Tyrrell. His understanding of what drives human behavior is original, unique and completely theatrical. He is an artistic treasure, and to produce a world premiere of one of his plays at Arts Garage is a thrill and an honor. Gloucester Blue is an example of American playwriting at its best. Gloucester Blue is a dark and wicked comedy and refers to a color choice for the walls of a restored harbor-front fish fac tory cum gentrified residence. But no amount of renovation can gloss over the illicit secret motivations and unexpected connections of these characters, when the working-class world of two house painters collides with the privileged-class owners of this storied property. When the best in us gives way to the worst in us, misadventure is the best adventure of all, and great theatre is afoot, said Tyrrell. Never have our darkest impulses and deepest misbehavior been so much fun! Horovitz has written more than 70 produced plays, many of which have been translated and performed in more than 30 languages world-wide. His screenplay for the 1982 film, Author! Author!, starring Al Pacino, is a largely autobiographical account of a playwright dealing with the stress of having his play produced on Broadway while he tries to raise a large family.LEGAL SEAFOODS PRESENT LIGHT LUNCHEON OFFERINGS Food Review Marc Kent In the quest for innovating integrated menu items for their 32 restaurants on the eastern sea board, Legal Seafoods through their Culinary Director, Kevin Watson developed regionals luncheon specialties. Meeting with Chef Watson, we were able to sample three soup creations including a New Eng land clam chowder, quite light yet full bodied with tender clam bits. The Key West soup had a curry spice that was just perfec tion with the right bite and defined taste. We found the yellow gazpacho to be cool and pleasant though it needed a bit more of a chunky body. A seafood tray consisting of Cape Cod oysters, with the usual red sauce, champagne vinegar sauce and a diced jalapeno sauce that wasnt too spicy nice ac companiment to the cool, crisp bi-valves. The tray also featured littleneck clams and jumbo, delicious shrimp. A swordfish salad was a perfectly seared warm fish steak served with cool cucumber, toma to, chick peas and strips of fennel a great luncheon creation. An excellent tuna steak was coated in a fantastic dried spice mixture if it is on your menu, do try it! We also sampled a Portuguese fisherman stew with mussels, fish, clams and chorizos in a light and slightly sweet broth a winner. Dessert was a gift box of eight different cookies each a sweet treat and most creative this should be most popular for luncheons. Future offerings promise to be quite creative and pleasing as well.

This years festivities celebrated the dreams and aspirations of the 625 children served by FFCDC Wee Dream Ball co-chairs Carrie Rubin and Stacey Packer along with an impressive committee of dedicated volunteers worked tirelessly on the enchanted garden infused 2012 Wee Dream Ball. Breaking all records, a total of $482,000 was raised for the two Florence Fuller Child Development Centers in east and west Boca Raton.

January 10, 2013 through January 16,2013www.bocaratontribune.com B6 Edition 129 Section BBoca Life & Arts By Skip Sheffield Michael Gora and Charles Cohen are two prominent Boca Raton lawyers practicing family law. Gora is also a columnist for Boca Raton Tribune ans member of the Artists Guild of Boca Raton Museum of Art. Both men have found a creative outlet in photography. Their growing body of work has been seen in many galleries and museums. In June of 2012 Gora and Cohen went to Israel to record the experience through visual images. Their efforts, titled Reflection of the Holy Land, are on display for two months from Thursday, Jan. 10 at Griffin Gallery Ancient Art at Gallery Center, 608 Banyan Trail, Boca Raton. The artists will meet the public at 5:30 p.m. A group opening is from 6-8 p.m. Jan. 10. The public is invited free of charge. We think of it as a road trip, joked Gora recently. One the road to Jerusa lem, like one of those Bob Hope-Bing Crosby movies. I always wanted to go to Israel, said Charles Cohen. I am not a partic ularly religious person, but there is so much there of historical importance. The itinerary was planned by a Boca Raton travel agency with the aim of including Israels most important scenic and historic sites. The photographers flew out of Madrid to Ben-Gurion International Airport in Tel Aviv and to a hotel in Jerusalem. The first day began with a trip to the biblical Mount of Olives for a panoramic view of Old Jerusalem. The men were accompanied by an Israeli guide, Moshe Mor, who lived in Boca Raton for a couple years. Many people are concerned about the dangers of traveling to Israel, allows Cohen. We never felt fear anyplace. However, after we left we learned a rocket strike hit near where we stayed in Tel Aviv. There are four sectors in Old Jerusalem: the Armenian, Muslim, Christian and Jewish sections. Once of the most important sites is the Western Wall. It is all that remains of the Sec ond Temple from the time of King Herod. It is the most sacred spot for devout Jews. For Christians, the Via Delarosa, or Stations of the Cross, is a must-experience, as is the Church of the Holy Sepulcher. New Jerusalem has the Herzl Cemetery, where three of Israels Prime Ministers and several presidents are buried. The men visited Vad Vashemthe Holocaust Museum and the artists village of Ein Karem. Highlights included two nights spent in a kibbutz on the shore of the Sea of Galilee, a stop at Golan Heights and a side trip to the Dead Sea and Ma sada, which is the most revered symbol of Jewish courage and pride. Capernaum was a large fishing village and trade center where the remains of a synagogue believed to be one where Jesus taught is located. Nearby is Peters House, where Jesus lived and did healing. Other stops included Megiddo (the Armageddon), Mount Carmel and its Druze villages, the ancient seaside town of Caesarea and the old port of Jaffa. Im ready to go back, vows Cohen. This time our wives want to go. For more information call Griffin Gallery at 561-994-0811 or go to www. griffingallery.net.Photos of Israel on Display at Grin Gallery Ancient Art
Edition 129 19for news 24/7 go to bocaratontribune.com www.bocaratontribune.comJanuary 10, 2013 through January 16,2013Municipal NewsThe Boca Raton Tribune BOCA RATON -On Tuesday, December 11, while conducting surveillance, a Boca Raton Police Tac Team officer noticed a black Nissan Sentra driving slowing on Technology Way. The car appeared to match the description of one suspected in two previous auto burglaries at LA Fitness. Police said the driver dropped off his female passenger and left the area heading west on Yamato Road. Because the window tint appeared darker than allowed by law, officers attempted to stop the vehicle. The driver refused to pull over. As the car entered the 95 onramp, another officer deployed stop sticks and the car stopped just before running over the deflation device. As officers approached the car they smelled a strong odor of marijuana, said police. When the suspect, identified by police as Daquan Johnson, 19, of Fort Lauderdale, got out of the vehicle, he told officers he had weed in the vehicle. While searching the car, officers found 3.1 grams of marijuana in the center console. Also found, police said, was a TomTom GPS with charger, three iPhones, a Samsung Sprint phone, a Motorola T-Mobile phone, a flashlight, two childrens books, a Winchester multi-tool and multiple pairs of sunglasses. In the trunk, officers found two USB ca bles, an AC power adaptor, a purse, a pair of Nike shoes, a Victorias Secret rewards card and a brown wallet. The victim of an LA Fitness auto burglary Dec. 1 was contacted and positively identified the purse as hers. Through an analysis of the iPhones, a phone number was obtained and the probable owner was contacted. That person confirmed it was her iPhone and that it was stolen from her in North Lauderdale. Police said Johnson was charged with possession of burglary tools, burglary to a conveyance, grand theft, theft of credit cards and unauthorized possession and fraudulent use of a credit card. Boca Police Ocers Nab LA Fitness Vehicle Burglar BOCA RATON On Christmas Eve, just after 2 a.m., Boca Raton Police officers responded to an armed robbery at the Kentucky Fried Chicken, 1601 North Federal Highway. The manager told officers he left the business at about 2 a.m. and went to his car to put some items in the trunk. The manager went back inside the business, locked up and returned to his car with the weekend deposits. He placed the deposit bags inside the car when he was confronted by an unknown male.

The victims received phone calls from an unknown person calling from 787, 786 and/or 347 area codes, all in Puerto Rico. The suspect tells the victim a family member has been kidnapped or was involved in a car accident and was kidnapped. The suspect tells the victim that if they hang up the phone or call the police, the family member will be killed. Victims are instructed to wire money via Western Union to various people in Puerto Rico. The increments of money are generally around $1,000, said police. After the victim has complied with the instructions, they discover the family members are safe, unharmed, and had never been approached by anyone or were never in any danger. If you receive a phone call like this, it is most likely a scam. Find a way to have someone else call your family member and try to notify police while you are on the phone with the caller. When speaking with the suspect, never add any information about the family member. Be aware that criminals are always looking for new ways to take your money or belongings. Never sent money via Western Union to a person you do not know. Kidnappers dont use Western Union. Be alert, vigilant and report all suspicious activity, warn police. If you have any information about these crimes or similar crimes, call Detective Max Del Valle at (561) 338-1302 or Palm Beach County Crime Stoppers at (800) 458-TIPS. BOCA RATON -On Wednesday, December 19, at about 9:40 a.m., Boca Raton Police officers responded to a robbery that occurred on the sidewalk on SW 2nd Avenue, police said. The victim told officers he and a friend were walking south on the sidewalk when an unknown male approached them and snatched the necklace off his neck. The suspect is described by police as a dark skinned black male about 20 years old, about 6 tall, average build, and wearing a black muscle shirt and black shorts. Police said that after the suspect grabbed the victims necklace, the suspect ran to the northeast parking lot. He got into the passenger seat of a newer model, four-door car, possibly a Volkswagen Jetta, bearing a Florida tag with BC somewhere in it. The vehicle left north on SW 2nd Avenue. The victim was not injured. If anyone has information about this crime, they are asked to call Detec tive Scott Hanley at (561) 338-1344 or Palm Beach County Crime Stoppers at (800) 458-TIPS.Necklace snatched from mans neck in Boca Raton BOCA RATON -Quick ac tion by Boca Raton resident is being credited for the arrest of five individuals who allegedly came to Boca Raton to break into houses. They were identified by police as Jordan Exantus, 16, of Margate; Johan Smith, 20, of Lauderdale Lakes and Javan Hughes, 20, Florisma Hyppolite, 18 and Kansas Derilus, 18, all of North Lauderdale. At about 11 a.m. Dec. 18, a Glen Oaks resident said a male knocked on her door and asked if Johnny was home. The suspect, with his cell phone to his ear, left when he realized someone was home. Finding the interaction suspicious, the resident refused to open the door and immediately called 911. Officers of the Tac Team quickly closed in on the area. Since multiple officers were responding to the Glen Oaks neighborhood, others went to adjacent neighborhoods. While entering the Boca Madera neighborhood, one Tac Team officer noticed a car matching the vehicle described by the resident parked in front of a house on 32nd Street. The officer then observed a person matching the suspects description quickly walking down the driveway toward the car with a cell phone to his ear. Officers following the car, observed it make an illegal turn on Saint Andrews Boulevard and then proceeded to make a traffic stop. When the driver opened the window, a strong smell of marijuana could be detected, police said. All five occupants were questioned and the car was searched. Initially, three suspects said they came to visit a friend but didnt know which house he lived in. Another suspect said he was sleeping. Eventually two suspects allegedly admitted they came to burglarize houses in Boca. While searching the car, officers found two pairs of knit gloves, a knit ski mask, a black knit cap, a utility knife and a metal window punch. All five suspects were charged with loitering & prowling, possession of burglary tools and possession of marijuana.

This is the highest level trauma service designated by the Florida Department of Health and elevates Delray Medical Center to a select group of trauma research centers in the state. Delray Medical Center is dedicated to ensuring its trauma services meet the highest standard of care, said Chief Executive Officer Mark Bryan. This desig nation represents the culmination of our efforts and our commitment by the skilled team of physicians and staff at Delray Medical Center. We are proud to provide the community with the highest level of trauma care in Palm Beach County. Delray Medical Center is one of 22 verified trauma centers in Florida, and will be one of only four Level 1 Trauma Centers in South Florida. Under circumstances when transfer time is critical to trauma patients due to the life threatening nature of the injuries, Delray Medical Center is now the Level 1 Trauma Center most readily accessible to the residents of Palm Beach County. After years of experience as a Level II Trauma Center, the Level 1 Trauma Center status reflects that Delray Medical Center meets strict additional requirements which include pediatric trauma pa tient care services that are separate and distinct from adult trauma patient care services, adult and pediatric trauma intensive care units and cardiac surgery. In addition, one of the major responsibilities Delray Medical Center has as a Level 1 trauma center is to continually expand the body of knowledge in the field of trauma through clinical and basic research programs, apply this new knowledge to the treatment of the injured patient, and disseminate the knowledge throughout the medical community. For the past six years, Delray Medical Center has been ranked one of Healthgrades Americas 50 Best Hospitals, as well as being a recipient of the Healthgrades Critical Care Excellence Award for the past two years. Delray Medical Center was also named one of Healthgrades 100 Best Hospitals for General Surgery for two consecutive years. For over 30 years, Delray Medical Center, a 493-bed acute care hospital, has served South Palm Beach County. As both a community hospital and Provisional Level I Trauma Center located on a 42-acre medical plaza, Delray Medical Center has the ability to offer several specialized services including cardiac care, orthopedics, rehabilitation, neurosciences and emergency care, among others.Florida Names Delray Medical Level I Trauma Center Claudio Correia The Man for All Seasons and Beauty ReasonBy Diane Feen Claudio Correia moved to Boca Raton in 1995 and has been creating products and services that fit todays Florida Lifestyle. Correia has worked diligently developing products (and services) that will touch peoples lives. He was formally in the healthcare business, custom made wheelchairs, and he built a state-oftheart rehab center in San Paulo, Brazil. Correia started out as an engineer and after receiving a degree in Brazil, he found his passion in the marketing realm. I started as operations manager for a fashion com pany from Canada that did business in the Middle East. As a matter of fact, we were the first Western company to cross the Eastern Wall, said Correia. While studying in Latin America, Europe and at the Harvard Business School, Claudio expanded and honed his marketing skills so he could make a difference in the world (and its people). Correia is currently the Co-Founder and President of Boca Cosmetics Group, a manufacturer of innovative and quality hair care products. The reason they qualify as life-changing is because they combine natural ingredients such as seeds from the Amazon and Peru to make oils and hair gloss. The gloss has mica in it and comes from the Amazon embankment. Their Argon oil comes directly from Morocco. Correia also devised a way to utilize Apple Stem Cells on hair follicles in 14 days. This way the usage multiplies the follicles and is the most advanced technology on the market. BCGs products con tain natural, exotic ingredi ents from all over the world, including Brazil, Morocco, and Switzerland. Two years ago The Home Shopping Network (HSN) launched Zelo, one of Boca Cosmetics Groups keratin straightening systems. This product is the first of its kind for home use and costs a frac tion of what it would cost in a salon. As a contract manufacturer of several well-recognized brands, Boca Cosmetics has its own line of Olez professional hair care products. This year, BCG introduced the first hair straightening product containing apple-stem cells, which not only straightens hair, but has restorative properties to protect hair for up six months. Boca Cosmetics Group recently opened a state-of-theart training center in Boca Raton. It is there that stylists from around the country come to train and become certified to use and utilize these revolutionary products effectively.

26 -Edition 129 January 10, 2013 through January 16,2013 www.bocaratontribune.comBusiness By Gerald J. Sherman WHAT BUSINESS ARE YOU IN?Social Responsibility Its The Right Thing to Do! We are at a point in our society where helping one another is essential to preserving it. Its the right thing to do! We can look at our schools today and see that the kids are required to do some community service. They are learning early on, that its the right thing to do! Its called Social Responsibility, which concerns itself with individuals, corporations, organizations, governmental entities having a responsibility to our community and society at large. Like private organizations, nonprofits are reaching out to be financially sound and to improve their brand/ image. Getting their word out to their community is a necessity. This is where for profit businesses get the chance to become involved for the good of all. Partnering/sponsoring with a nonprofit has many advantages. It can give the commercial organization the opportunity to both serve the community and receive positive public opinion from this association. This symbiotic relationship can prove to be a benefit for all; the non-profit, the business organization and the public they serve. Sponsoring with a non-profit includes getting the word out about the non-profit. Both smaller and larger non-profit need to get positive public opinion, media attention and help in conducting events in order to raise funds. Their survival depends on getting the word out to their target market. Non-profits like the United Way, Multiple Sclerosis Society, the Red Cross and other large non-profits do employ public relations personnel and advertise but most non-profits try to do PR in house by members or volunteers or relationships with companies that can support their needs. There are always opportunities available to compa nies who wish to be socially responsible and partner with non-profits. Naturally, when a commercial enterprise supports a non-profit it should consider some of the following: community? companys culture, product or service? How active do they want the partner to be? One of the ways of supporting a non-profit is sponsorship of special events. It brings your companys product/service to the attention of the audience. It also enables a company to reach the target audience in a specific geographical area. This partner/ sponsorship program combines local advertising, public relations, promotions and philanthropic activity. Many companies find this cost-effective due to fewer expenses involved in marketing the event. The charitable organiza tion does CO-OP advertising with the commercial company and the charity does all the marketing with the participating companys logo, which is identified with the charitable cause in all the advertisements, mailers and brochures. The company sponsoring an event is assured of an audience that will relate to their target market. The golf-wear manufacturer sponsoring the golf tournament similarly assures that its audience will take notice of its brand and products. The main thing is for companies to be pro-active in working with charitable causes and to make sure they are compatible with the product/service they are marketing. A cause related activity is another way of supporting and becoming ac tive with nonprofits. It gives the commercial company an opportunity to increase their sales and still contribute to their favorite non-profit. It involves the commercial companys contribution to a worthy cause tied into a consumer purchase of their product or service. This cause related activity is an activity or initiative in which an organization or corporation pledges a percentage of its gross sales towards a specific cause or non-profit project. Cause-related ac tivities are an effective means of serving the community. Participating in cause-related activities is fast becoming a popular method. We find more business establishments are interested in this type of activity due to the many public relations opportunities it provides for both the cause and the company. However, the companys contribution is dependent upon the consumer buying the product/service that will benefit the cause. The trend for commercial entities is clear, become active in the community and look to help others. It will pay big dividends in knowing you served. After all, being socially responsible is the right thing to do! Excerpts from the book, Fashion Public Relations, Gerald J. Sherman & Sar S. Perlman.

Wambach, the second American to be named Womens World Player of the year, received the award today at the 2013 FIFA Ballon dOr gala in Zurich, Switzerland, where the worlds governing body for soccer held its annual gala event. Argentinian Lionel Messi of Barcelona, was named the FIFA World Player of the Year for the fourth year in a row. This is the third time an American woman has been named FIFA Womens World Player of the Year following Mia Hamms selection in 2001 and 2002, the first two years the award was presented. Im very, very surprised, said a shocked Wambach after receiving the award. Individual honors only happen if you have great teams and great people who have given you the chance to be here. Not only do I think Marta and Alex could have won, but many other players could have been here as well. Thanks to FIFA, thanks to U.S. Soc cer and thanks to all the fans and my family for putting me in this position. I dont think of myself as the best player in the world, just a player who plays on the best team in the world. Wambach finished first in voting by coaches and captains of womens national teams from around the world. Each ballot allowed the coaches and captains to name their top three players, with a first-place nomination worth five points, and positions two and three rewarded with three points and one point, respectively. Im so happy for Abby for all the work she has put into this team and into the sport, said Alex Morgan. Shes so completely deserving of this award and Im truly happy for her. Shes made such a huge mark on womens soccer over the past decade. Shes an inspirational to not only the thousands of young girls around the country and world, but also to me. Morgan, who scored 28 goals with 21 assists in one of the best scoring years in U.S. history, took third place in the voting and Marta, five-time FIFA Womens World Player of the Year, took second. Together, Wambach and Morgan accounted for 55 goals this past year, tying a record for most goals scored by a duo in U.S. history that was set in 1991 by Michelle Akers (39) and Carin Jennings (16). The contributions Abby Wambach has made to U.S. Soccer and womens sports in general are far-reaching and significant, said U.S. Soccer President Sunil Gulati. Her play on the field during her entire career and her leadership this year in helping capture the gold medal were both inspirational and consistently world-class. As a person and a player, she has represented her country and her teammates for more than a decade with tremendous professionalism. We are extremely happy for Abby and proud that a U.S. player has won such a prestigious award from FIFA for the third time. The 2012 FIFA Womens World Player of the Year and her teammates return to the field on Feb. 9 when the U.S. WNT opens its 2013 schedule against Scotland at EverBank Field in Jacksonville, Fla. The match will kick off at 5 p.m. ET, and broadcast information will be released at a later date. It will be new head coach Tom Sermannis first official match.Abby Wambach wins 2012 FIFA Womens World Player of the YearBy: Pedro HeizerPia Sundhage, who led the USA to the 2012 Olympic gold medal, has been named the 2012 World Coach of the Year for Womens Soccer. Sundhage becomes the first coach of a U.S. team to win the award, which was instituted in 2008. Sundhage finished third in voting for World Coach of the Year in 2008 and second last year behind Japan head coach Norio Sa saki. Sasaki was the runner-up for this years award and Frances Bruno Bini was third. Pia is the not the only great coach in the world, but in my opinion, this year she exemplified what separated her from all the other great coaches, and that was the ability to get her team to come home with the championship, said Abby Wambach of Sundhage. That task is certainly not easy these days. A lot of things have to go right, a lot of your players have to play well and at the end of the day, she was the last coach standing. Her humility and her ability to effectively motivate her players are things Ill never forgot and always be thankful for. Sundhage ended a spectacular fiveyear tenure at the helm of the U.S. team in September of 2012, finishing off her run that included two Olympic gold medals and a second-place finish at the 2011 FIFA Womens World Cup with a rousing 6-2 victory against Australia in Commerce City, Colo. She finished her career as head coach of the USA with an 88-6-10 record, including 20-1-1 this year before she left to take the job as the head coach of the Sweden Womens National Team in her home country. Im so happy for Pia because she sacrificed so much to come to the U.S., put on our crest every day and make us her priority day in and day out, said a thankful Alex Morgan after the awards gala. She gave me my first cap so I feel indebted to her. Going into the Olympics, we definitely wanted to show the world we were number one and Pia really helped us stay positive, stay on track and take the field every game with that positivity and confidence that we could win. At the same time, she was always reminding us to continue to have fun and respect and enjoy the game. She completely deserves this award and we all wish her good luck to her in the future.Pia Sundhage wins 2012 World Coach of the Year for Womens Soccer
