By Samantha MellmanIts the most wonderful time of the year at least for those with a sweet tooth as area Girl Scout troops bring out the colorful boxes of cookies to sell. Three weeks out of the year we see our local friendly Girl Scouts selling those delectable cookies we have all come to know and cannot resist. The big question we may face when we meet them is, how many boxes will we buy? But the bigger question should be what are you donating to? Every year the girls who sell the cookies earn troop proceeds and they actually decide what they want to do with their money, said Melinda Glasco, director of marketing YOUR CLOSEST NEIGHBOR.Nearly 400,000 readers!The Boca Raton Tribunefor news 24/7 go to bocaratontribune.com Send us a picture of you reading The Boca Raton Tribune to firstname.lastname@example.orgCommunitySee page 3 Boca Raton Police Rx Drop Box a SuccessMunicipalSee page 20 Boca Raton Author Releases e Whispers of the FallenLife & ArtsSee page B1 Psychological Warfare: Perception vs. RealityBusinessSee page 26 Black Violin to Open For Headliner Natalie ColeBob Ross reading The Boca Raton TribuneContinued on page 8 Girl Scouts: Selling Cookies while Teaching Life LessonsContinued on page 8Kultur Festival, Celebration of Jewish Culture, Returns to FAUCommunitySee page 6 Black Violin to Open For Headliner Natalie Cole The classically trained South Florida twosome known as Black Violin, fresh off their performance of the inauguration of President Barack Obamas second term, have signed to open for main act nine-time GRAMMY award-winning singer and songwriter Natalie Cole at the Nat King Cole Generation Hope, Inc.

After graduating college, they joined up as hip-hop studio rats in South Florida, working with several different acts before returning to their roots by fusing the two genres in a groundbreaking collaboration that has seen them play their music for everybody from the troops in Iraq to both the official Presidents Inaugural Ball and the Kids Inaugural in Washington, D.C. The pair also headlined 40 shows in two stints at the New Victory Theater on Broadway, including 16 sold-out shows over two weeks last November.

Much like the Nat King Cole Generation Hope, which raises much needed funds for music education where the resources are lacking, Black Violin is committed to turning young fans on to their own potential through a tireless schedule of appearances at schools, where they constantly stress the importance of arts education. Were passionate about it because we realize how fortunate we were to grow up having access to that, explains Wil B. Its something in which we take a great deal of pride. We encourage kids to think creatively, to take what they love doing and try to come up with something no one has ever done before. And that doesnt just apply to playing violin or even music, but whatever it is you decide to do. Expand your mind. Once we get their attention with the music, thats the message we want to deliver. Twin daughters of music legend Nat King Cole, Timolin and Casey Cole of Boca Raton, launched Nat King Cole Generation Hope, Inc. to honor the legacy, music and life of their father Nat King Cole in 2008 after learning of budget cuts in public schools directly affecting the arts.

8 -Edition 135 February 22, through February 28, 2013 www.bocaratontribune.com EDITORIAL By C. Ron Allen EDITORIALS/LETTERSThe Boca Raton TribuneFounded January 15, 2010 Publisher C.E.OC.O.O. Editorial Interim Editor Managing Editor Copy Editor Online Edition Editor Social Media Software Engineer RANDOM THOUGHTSI would be remiss if I did not thank those of you who called and wrote me over the last few weeks to share your thoughts on my column on gun control. At your suggestion and since I was not able to listen live to President Barack Obamas State of the Union address to Congress recently, I later listened online. And I was left fired up, once again, for some type of gun control. As the commander-in-chief shared his workmanlike list of initiatives for the upcoming year, I saw the parents of Hadiya Pendleton, the young woman from Chicago fresh from performing at the Presidents inauguration who was gunned down by a drive-by bullet. I also saw former Rep. Gabrielle Giffords and the dozens of victims of gun violence in attendance. (It was just nine days earlier, I saw 26 kids the same number of victims in the Sandy Hook Elementary Schools choir sing America the Beautiful during the Super Bowls pregame show.) I listened as the president urged Congress to vote on his proposals to expand background checks on gun sales, ban assault weapons and put strict limits on high-capacity ammunition clips. And I also remember that shortly after the Newtown massacre, information came out that gun sales shot up. I recall a dear friend telling me that he had decided to hoard my guns before the law comes down on us. So I think its safe to say there are more guns out here now. I found it interesting though, that the president didnt note that immediately before his address, millions of television viewers were captivated by the incendiary battle between law enforcement and vengeance-seeking ex-cop Christopher Jordan Dorner. The former Los Angeles police officer and fugitive accused of killing several people was holed up in a mountain cabin in another gun battle, and facing an inevitable end to his killing spree and his own life. Let me preface, I do not condone violence as a means of settling grievances. Unfortunately, this was the route taken by Mr. Dorner, a Navy veteran who after returning from war, and appeared to have been suffering from PTSD. His actions, however, raise some disquieting questions that we need to face some short-term, others long-term. I am not saying that all veterans are out here waiting to go off. I think though that had there been gun control in place, Mr. Dorner, who happens to be a sick veteran, and the others may not have had easy access to the weapons they used. Like Mr. Dorner, there are legions of other veterans locally who are crying out for help. I think the other unasked question is: what is being done in both military and civilian life to acknowledge the horrible effects of combat duty? Through training, local law enforcement officers have been doing a fair job in averting a disaster. I know firsthand as I have witnessed a few calls. What are we doing as a nation to channel resources toward mental health solutions so that those who seek help will be able to find it? We always seem to find money for war, but not for our returning warriors. Finally, what are we doing as a culture to reduce institutional racism so that everyone feels included and trusts they will get a fair shake in any disciplinary action, whether it be in school, employment or the criminal justice system? Taking the time to ask some hard questions opens the possibility that all those who died will not have died in vain. I think a great way to start is to contact your U.S. representatives and senators and chime in. What are your thoughts? Sound off at editor@Bocatribune.com and communications for the Girl Scouts of Southeast Florida. They can decide to take a really great, fantastic educational trip, many of them actually reinvest in the community and use it towards their community service project, some of them donate it to organizations that they have worked with throughout the year they can do fun things such a trip to sea-world. Last year the troops in Southeast Florida earned more than $1 million, she said. The annual Girl Scout cookie sale is about more than how many boxes of Thin Mints, Samoas and Tagalongs are sold. The bigger aim of the cookie sale program, troop leader Nina Heckerthorne said, is to teach the Girl Scouts business skills and interaction with people. Girl scouting is really about teaching them life skills, values, and how to be strong powerful women, said Heckerthorne, a first-year leader of Girl Scout Troop 20912 in Boca Raton. Troop 20912 has 15 members five Daisies and nine Brownies. The programs five key goals are goal setting, decision making, money management, people skills and business ethics. What I try to strive for my girls every day is that anybody can become a leader, be strong, and grow from your experiences, Heckerthorne said. I was a Girl Scout as a child and I remember how fulfilling it was to be with a group of girls who felt like sisters. The tradition of the cookie sale is entering its 80th year with the first cookie being sold in 1933. Back then Girl Scouts baked their cookies at home. Now the cookie sale is a nationwide effort and become a yearly tradition that people look forward to. Madison Hernandez is in her fifth year as a scout. She has enjoyed the many field trips and friends she has made along the way. The fairy tale camp out was my favorite, we each got to take a fairy home, Madison, 10, said.

Poverty Needs Not Cripple Permanently! By Douglas HeizerTHOUGHTS FROM THE PUBLISHER You Win Races Only When You FinishBy: Jim MathisSeveral few years ago we needed to have some carpet replaced in our home. My wife and I hired a company that came highly recommended, and we paid a premium price for the new carpet and the work. When the installers were done, my wife almost cried because the room looked so bad. I assured her we could fix the problem, and quickly gathered the carpet scraps, ran the vacuum over the new floor covering, and redid the baseboards. I even added to my tool collection some carpet tools they had left behind. After the furniture was moved back, the room looked beautiful. The installer simply had not cared enough to finish the job. Needless to say, we never called him again and would not have given a favorable recommendation to anyone if asked. Recently I had a bad experience with an automotive tire shop. Among other things, the tires on my car wore out prematurely because they had not been balanced correctly. After some discussion, the shop owners agreed to give me a new set of tires at a huge discount. They had an opportunity to win me back as a customer, but when I picked up my car, I found the alloy wheels were scuffed and covered with grease. I spent about thirty minutes cleaning and polishing the wheels, but they are still scuffed. Yes, I had new tires, but the work was totally unsatisfactory. To use an analogy from competitive sports, both companies could have won the race but failed to even reach the finish line. They did not care about me, my wife, the appearance of our home or the condition of my car. In baseball terminology, they could have hit a home run, but failed to pass third base. I am a photographer, and one of my commitments is to offer my customers the assurance that I will be swinging for the fences and will not stop until they are not only satisfied, but also delighted with their results. Regardless of what kind of business you are in or what types of products or services you provide, this should be your goal as well. This determination to provide the best service possible makes practical sense. In many cases the future of our businesses depend on having customers that use us again and again. Also, the best advertisement for any company is a satisfied customer. At the same time, dissatisfied customers can be disastrous. And the fact is, an unhappy customer is many times more likely to tell others about the experience. But there is an even better reason for striving for excellence, for doing work to the best of our ability. In the Bibles New Testament, it says, whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him. Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for men (Colossians 3:17,23). Each of us has received unique abilities, talents and experience that enable us to do the work that we do. One way of showing appreciation for what we have received is to use these to the best of our abilities. Until next week! Jim Mathis is the owner of a photography studio in Overland Park, Kansas, specializing in executive, commercial and theatrical portraits, and operates a school of photography. Jim is the author of High Performance Cameras for Ordinary People, a book on digital photography. He formerly was a coffee shop manager and executive director of CBMC in Kansas City, Kansas and Kansas City, Missouri.Human poverty should not prevent personal development and great achievement in any individual! Todays world still produces great leaders in varied fields who came from deprived backgrounds. In many cases, a parent had to sacrifice a great deal in order to motivate the youngster in the right direction, and provide a sound context with adequate tools for sound learning. In the majority of the cases, such efforts are crowned with unbelievable success! In other instances, an outsider took the loving initiative to encourage, and provide aid for a needy childs solid, comprehensive advancement in a field corresponding to the youths giftedness and passion. As Yale University professor, Miroslav Volf, wisely observed, wealth doesnt make us givers; poverty cant prevent us from being givers. With this understanding and conviction, a larger number of visionaries has been empowering certain agencies and institutions specializing in quality education, and offering other vital resources for children who, left to themselves, would inevitably enter a life of laziness or crime, on account of lacking basic instruction, devoid of the right incentives and motivation! As a result, artists, authors, musicians, scientists, politicians, and honored members of every profession and vocation are now significantly contributing to society, and some of those to the world at large as well. The world is always enriched when such things happen, while offering hope to others still stuck in poverty, malnutrition, and deprived of educational opportunities! You can easily find a reliable agency, whether in the U.S.A. or elsewhere in the world, making an enormous difference in several places, offering resources which are lifting many fellow humans to greatness, as they become productive citizens of the world, and their lives impact society in varied fields of endeavor and in manifold ways.

12 -Edition 135 February 22, through February 28, 2013 www.bocaratontribune.com Divorce Florida StyleBy Mike Gora ColumnistsThe Boca Raton Tribune Dan Marino & The Golden BunMichael H. Gora has been certified by the Board of Education and Specialization of The Florida Bar as a specialist in family and matrimonial law and is a partner with Shapiro Blasi Wasserman & Gora P.A. in Boca Raton. Mr. Gora can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org. Over the last fifteen years I have represented some of the best known professional athletes in the United States with their matrimonial situations from prenuptial agreement to divorce. Many times I have been asked to defend the athletes from paternity suits, or pursue child support on behalf of women who have been impregnated by wealthy and well known athletes. Of course, after first blood tests, and now DNA tests those cases are usually simple cases of applying the child support guidelines of Florida as modified by appellate law, which limits child support to reasonable and necessary amounts of money. After reading about the Dan Marino/Donna, Savattere tryst, and its offspring I recalled that there was a term often used by my wealthy client dads and very un-wealthy moms, the Golden Bun, as in the bun in the oven. (For those of you under thirty years old bun in the oven refers to a pregnancy.) I have heard a one night stand mom defend her morals by claiming that she loved my client, but I wasnt after a Golden Bun. The Dan and Donna case makes me wonder why two smart people had forgotten about birth control at just the right moment. Did Donna tell Dan that she was on the pill and not to worry? Was Donna going for the Golden Bun? The long happily married Dan did or didnt travel with an extra pack or two of condoms, but a New York sports caster lady in her mid thirties probably had a box of them in her night table drawer and didnt suggest one, and if not, why not. Was her biological clock running out? Did she want to hit the double jackpot, a child of her own and enough money to retire? Did Dan just decide to ride bareback for the hell of it; damn the torpedoes, full steam ahead? Did passion trump reason and logic or was Donna really hanging out just for that Golden Bun? Without pleading justification for Dan or using too many football metaphors it appears to me that while both teams were playing the game, one had a great hail Mary in mind which she executed perfectly. I had seen Dan throw an interception late in fourth quarters before. I dont blame either player for being a human being. I hope that the golden bun grows up to have a happy life knowing that she is loved by both her parents.How To Earn The Respect Of OthersFAITHBy Rick Warren Having a good reputation is an indispensable factor in succeeding at work. A recent study revealed that the difference between top salespeople and average ones was not talent, but reputation. People had more trust for those who achieved the top sales performances and their sales productivity was in part a reflection of the trust that they had earned. No one likes to do business with someone they dont respect. The Bible says, A good name is more desirable than great riches (Proverbs 22:1). In other words, your self-worth (how people esteem you) is more important than your net worth. A common mistake most people make is thinking that reputation is a matter of image how people perceive them based on external factors. So they concern themselves with questions like, How do I look? or Did I say the right thing? To build a long-term good reputation, however, it is necessary to focus on your character (what is unseen, on the inside), not your image (what is visible on the outside). Respect must be earned. The books of Proverbs and Psalms in the Bible identify six character qualities found in people that are respected by others: 1. RESPECT IS EARNED THROUGH INTEGRITY. Respect in business is earned over time, by demonstrating a consistency between what we say and what we do. Respect is not something that can be bought or simply awarded. The man of integrity walks securely, but he who takes crooked paths will be found out (Proverbs 10:9). 2. RESPECT IS EARNED THROUGH HUMILITY. When people sense humility a willingness to set aside our personal goals and self-interest, and to view others as more important than ourselves, they become more willing to work with us. Anyone who listens to correction is respected (Proverbs 13:18). Arrogance will bring your downfall, but if you are humble, you will be respected (Proverbs 29:23). 3. RESPECT IS EARNED THROUGH DEPENDABILITY. When people see that you keep your promises and commitments, even when they are inconvenient or costly, you gain their respect. Like clouds and wind without rain is a man who boasts of gifts he does not give (Proverbs 25:14). He who keeps an oath even when it hurts will never be shaken. (Psalm 15:45) 4. RESPECT IS EARNED THROUGH HAVING PRIORITIES. Your employees, coworkers, customers and suppliers come to respect you when they are confident that your purposes and goals have been carefully evaluated. If your goals are good, you will be respected (Proverbs 11:27) You will earn the trust and respect of others if you work for good (Proverbs 14:22). 5. RESPECT IS EARNED THROUGH GENEROSITY. The person who thinks of others and gives sincere consideration to their needs commands the respect of others. He who gives generously to the needy and shows kindness will be powerful and respected (Psalm 112:9). 6. RESPECT IS EARNED THROUGH PUTTING GOD FIRST IN YOUR LIFE. Who do you serve at work and in your personal life? What is the foundation for what you do and decisions you make? Your answer to these questions will greatly affect the measure of respect you will receive from others. If you want favor with both God and man, and a reputation for good judgment and common sense, then trust the Lord completely. In everything you do, put God first, and he will direct you and crown your efforts with success (Proverbs 3:4-6). This is adapted from a column by Rick Warren. Dr. Warren is the author of the highly acclaimed, bestselling book, The Purpose-Drive Life, which has been translated into many languages and sold throughout the world. It affirms the importance of having a carefully considered, clearly expressed purpose to guide everyday life.
Edition 135B1Section B February 22, through February 28, 2013www.bocaratontribune.com From Hart to Hart to Tallulah BankheadENTERT AINMENT See page B2 The Boca Raton Tribune B Section B Boca See page B3Mississippi Sweets Bocas Fine Bbq Restaurant FOOD REVIEWBy: Pedro HeizerJorge De Oliveira Netto is a new up and coming writer from Boca Raton who late last year completed his first novel, The Whispers of the Fallen. The book follows the epic fantasy route as rumors about the Diary of Lucifer echoed throughout Elysium, the world Netto created so beautifully. Hidden from all human knowledge, the Diary was kept a secret, locked away in the small village of Agalmath. The protagonists Isaac and Demetre find themselves in a dangerous journey as they uncover the truth about the Diary and its guardians. However, for Isaac and Demetre, danger lies at every step, hidden in the most unexpected places. Hunted by the Nephilins and the Fallen Stars, they must find others who will join them in the battle against the coming darkness. One star, Lucifer, rebelled against the Creator. He and the stars he deceived fell from grace. Lucifer was banished to the Abyss. But before, as a precaution, he left a Diary behind for his followers. With this Diary, he can be reawakened and return from the Abyss, to defy the Creator once more. When the novel starts, the dispersed and battered forces of Lucifer have regained dominance and openly claim their rule over the world again. They are at the point of getting hold of the Diary and its power, to make Lucifer reappear. The idea came to me while driving down Interstate 95, says the 24 year old writer about the inspiration behind this marvelous plot. I got home that night and I wrote about 40 pages of the book and knew the direction I wanted to take it. Netto has been passionate about writing, and fantasy from a young age, Ever since I was a young kid I was always interested in fantasy, says Netto. I would always be in my room either drawing, writing, or making little books to give to family members. Netto did a sensational job on the book; the plot draws the reader in and will instantly hook them for the entirety of the book. The reader will fall in love with the protagonist from the moment they meet him, they will cry, laugh, feel pain, and feel the power of choice. In fact, what Netto wants his readers to get from the book is simple, choice. All the characters in The Whispers of the Fallen had many choices. When you choose something be ready for the consequences, says Netto. No matter if the consequences are good or bad. It took Netto over six years to complete The Whispers of the Fallen. But he is already working on book number two. There will be four books, says the writer. Ive started on book two already, I dont want to wait another six years to publish the next one, he said jokingly. Book two, which will be called Rebellion, is slated for a 2014 release. Despite the recent success of Nettos The Whispers of the Fallen, this wasnt always the case. I got letters back saying there isnt a market for the book, says the writer who devoted six years of his life to writing the book. But in the first two weeks the book has been out, it had already sold over 200 copies, which for an unknown writer is really good Netto didnt let those rejection letters bring him down, I clearly remember when I sent my first letter to a New York house and my first rejection letter arrived two months later, Netto recalls. The rejection letters actually made me believe more in my story and on myself as an author. Rejection inspired me to write a better story, believing that Whispers could be more than just an entertaining novel, said the writer. Since then, over 500 copies of the book (electronic and hard copies) have been sold on amazon. com, barnesandnoble.com, on the official book website, and iTunes. Many have criticized the themes of the book, saying its too dark but this isnt news for Netto. The controversy surrounding the dark themes of this novel are not anything new or unexpected to me, explains Netto. Many have criticized the characters in the story, saying that they go against the beliefs of many. Honestly, my goal here is to inspire and entertain, showing that even during the darkest times, there will always a shining light. Netto will be attending the Book Expo of America, in New York City on May 29-June 1, 2013, the South Florida Super Con from July 4-7, 2013, and the New York Comic Con on October 11-14, 2013.

February 22, through February 28, 2013 www.bocaratontribune.com B2 Edition 135 Section B Entertainment Skip SheffieldFrom Hart to Hart to Tallulah BankheadIf she had a choice, Stefanie Powers would have preferred being cast as Tallulah Bankhead under different circumstances. Movie, stage and television star Stefanie Powers replaces Valerie Harper in Looped, opening Tuesday, Feb. 26 and continuing through Sunday, March 3 at Parker Playhouse in Fort Lauderdale. Harper worked closely with playwright Matthew Lombardo in recreating the eccentric, outrageous character of stage and screen star Tallulah Bankhead. Looped had a pre-Broadway tryout at the Cuillo Center (now Palm Beach Dramaworks) in West Palm Beach. Harper was forced to bow out due to an ongoing battle against lung cancer. Valerie is a dear, dear friend, and she will be back, asserts Powers. She put an awful lot of herself in the role of Tallulah. It is always a challenge to play someone else without it becoming a parody. Tallulah was such a larger-thanlife character it is easy to exaggerate her. Looped is a double entendre title that means both the process of looping, or over-dubbing new dialogue, and getting looped as in drunk. Bankhead was a heavy drinker and drug-user, and when she showed up for a looping session for her last film, Die! Die! My Darling, a horror film from Hammer Studios in England. Powers has a unique insight. She was in the film as a 20-something ingnue. I didnt know anything, but I think I can be forgiven she says. What 20-yearold knows anything? I didnt understand the response associated with her hilarity. Powers did know Bankhead was a radio star second only to Bob hope. She has been rehearsing and researching her role feverishly in preparation for the revival of Looped on Broadway. I hope those who enjoyed Valerie in the role will come back and see what I have done with it, she says. It has been a very interesting journey about an interesting, complex and misunderstood woman.

Edition 135B3Section B February 22, through February 28, 2013www.bocaratontribune.com Mississippi Sweets Bocas Fine Bbq Restaurant Food Review Marc Kent For a quarter century owner Randy Smiths set menu has drawn customers from far away for good reasonsuperior BBQ fare. Audrey and this reviewer agree. We sampled Brunswick stew appetizer southern special with a chicken base, lima beans and other veggies for a unusual and wonderful flavorful taste. Dixie wings are available mild tasting, full tasting and hot with a bit of an after bite all a great treat. Love me tenders, lightly breaded are chicken pieces, available original or Dixie style. Have a basket of rib and wings with celery, carrots and blue cheese dressing or a fine chicken noodle soup with all the fixins. There are four salads the dinner salad of assorted greens, tomato, cucumber and onion or the Biloxi blue which adds bacon and sun dried tomatoes to the greens or cottonwood salad with grilled chicken and cheddar cheese or riverboat salad containing romaine with Caesar dressing, croutons and parmesan cheese. For entrees try the spit-roasted chickenwhole or half bird, seasoned, slow cooked, crisp and tender. Baby back ribs half or full slab are the most popular expertly prepared. Have them alone or paired with BBQ chicken or chicken breast or Dixie wings or pulled pork. We chose the Choctaw catfish farm raised fried with a light breading. To produce a fantastic taste try it fried or blackened. Combine any choice with a selection of sides. These include thin sliced sweet potatoes, deep fried and crispy; cross cut French fries, baked beans, applesauce, cole slaw plus homemade corn bread. For those wishing sandwich choices, the menu features charbroiled burgers, BBQ beef, pulled pork, catfish and 8 chicken options plus a choice of sides. Bottled beers, wines plus sweet or ice tea, lemonade and more can quench your thirst while you sample mouthwatering desserts including a dynamite key lime pie!

We urge you toGo and Enjoy! bocaratontribune.comA Practical Guide for Mature, Widowed or Divorced Men Book Review Skip Sheffield Harold Hal Spielman lost Mary, his wife of 32 years, five years ago. It was the culmination of her 14year battle against breast cancer. Spielman, now 85, retired a year later from the large, worldwide marketing and advertising research company he founded in New York. Spielmans life changes at first seemed overwhelming. I was truly alone for the first time in my life, Spielman recalls. I felt rather lost. I searched for some practical advice and support and I found there was virtually nothing available for men in my position. There are about a zillion advice books for widowed or divorced women, but nothing for men. It dawned on Hal Spielman, a sociologist by education and research and marketing expert by practice, that maybe he could be just the guy to offer advice and practical suggestions to widowed and divorced men; particularly of older age. Spielberg now calls himself a Partner and a Life Explorer. The first thing he did was set up a web site, suddenlysolo.org. An outgrowth is a slim paperback volume of the same name, written with the help of Marc Sibert, a golfing buddy and seasoned professional writer. A number of popular myths are exploded in Suddenly Solo, which is sub-titled A lifestyle road map for the mature, widowed or divorced man. One of the most glaring facts is that only nine percent of women say it is very important to have a man in their life. By contrast 22 percent of men say it is very important to have a woman in their life. No wonder older men can feel lost. Based on his research interviews (more than 1,000 men and 600 women in their 60s and 70s), Spielman learned that a womans breasts are not as important to men as women think they are. Spielman found men first look at a womans eyes, then earrings or jewelry, then the face, necklace and finally cleavage. If you focus too much on physical appearance you are bound to be disappointed, he states. Mature men are not just interested in bigboobed young blondes. Of course a woman your own age will have wrinkles and be less than physically ideal. I have had both my knees and hips replaced. Conversely, women find sense of humor, honesty and integrity far more important than a mans physical appearance. Suddenly Solo was written to be light, breezy and humorous but backed by hard factual research. It is divided into five Stages, or chapters, with sub-headings. The first is Separation, which is a most difficult time regardless of reason. Stage Two concerns being alone and dealing with loneliness, conceding its a couples world. Stage Three becomes more practical with New Connections, addressing the question as to when or why a man should resume dating. Stage Four more directly focuses on The Search. Finally Stage Five is Moving onA New Life. That new life may not mean re-marriage. Suddenly Solo explores the phenomenon of RCF (Really Close Friends), who may or may not be wife material. Spielman himself has an RCF who lives here in Florida, where he has a home in Lake Worth. Spielmans principal residence remains Sands Point, New York. You have the opportunity to meet Hal Spielman at the Boomer Times booth at the Delray Beach International Tennis Center during the International Tennis Championships. Spielman will be there from 5:30-8 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 23 and 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Feb. 27 and 28. To contact Spielman, go to suddenlysolo.org or e-mail hal@ suddenlysolo.org.

February 22, through February 28, 2013 www.bocaratontribune.com B6 Edition 135 Section B Does DESIGN MATTER? Douglas A. MummawMy last article straegically described how the Variety of Uses within a Downtown evironment creates Synergy. Dining, Shopping, Recreational, Cultural and of course Living opportunities create diversity and choices. These choices are essential to creating a dynamic evolving pedestrian realm in our Downtown. The recent branding campaign for Boca Ratons Downtown Its Happening is marketing our special places and entertainment venues to promote and attract citizens to come and experience the energy of our downtown. This third volume of Why Design Matters in our Downtown will focus on the Urban and Architectural spaces that weave all the various Uses together and how these unique strategies truly enhance the experience. It is no accident that successfully designed promenades, on street parking convenience, continuous covered loggias and creatively designed landscape composed together, creates a haptic realm that enhances the activities of shopping, dining or casual strolling. Downtown Boca Raton continues to evolve. As mentioned in a previous article, Mizner Park has become a Urban Land Institute legacy project. It is a case study for all Urban Design students and professionals. We can experience an open park stroll along paver walkways with fountains, pavillions and benches. We have 1,000 lineal feet of options of being outside or strolling along the covered loggias, window shopping or people watching:). The outdoor dining areas covered with umbrellas located in open space or tucked into courtyards offer us multiple experiences. The Promenade recently constructed contiues the Mizner Park pedestrian boulevard south across NE 2nd Street and over to NE 1st Avenue along Sanborn Square. Yes, we have a downtown park and it, along with the amphitheater provides us with natural landscape to relax, play catch with our kids or enjoy a concert. The trees become the overhead shelter and acts as sun filters. These light shadows are playful and create beauty along a path or in a quite space. These spaces are bordered by tall buildings but cohesively co-exist. One of the best features of the Promenade is that there are no curbs. The car must subordinate to the pedestrian and when we have festivals like Meet me Downtown, the roads, parking spaces and sidewalks become a continuous boulevard. This project was critically important and our citys leaders were unfairly criticized for the expendature. If our City is ever to reach its potential, we need both public and private development to evolve together. Although I feel the Promenade is successful today, time will tell how it will be received by the public once the Yardhouse and Jazziz Bistro join IPIC on the South end of Mizner Park and these destination places spill out onto the Promnade. There has been exhaustive discussion about the Spine ( a main urban boulevard connecting Mizner Park and Royal Palm Place) for decades. The Promenade is not a spine but a very successfull improvement in space connectivity. And then there is Palmetto Park Road. We have all heard the dabates. Why cant we get Palmetto to become energized? Why are the shops struggling? What about traffic? Why hasnt it become our Downtown Delray or Fort Lauderdale? These are all important topics. Again, I have seen significant progress beginning with establishing our Downtown Design Guidelines and Pattern Book. This How To manual authored by Urban Design Associates in collaboration with our Citizens and City Leaders IS THE MAP TO FOLLOW. We are beginning to see the potential of Palmetto Park Road with Projects like 200 East and 5 Palms. Their connectivity to the street creates unique sidewalk experiences, on street dining and nicely amenitized landscape features. I firmly believe we need to isloate the types of commercial spaces that front the street which are closed at night and create dark pockets of inactivity along a pedestrian path. However, I will save that for another article on Strategic Zoning and Uses. In the meantime, bring on the rental communities recently approved. Over 1,500 new apartments will bring downtown living residents. HOOWA!! These young professionals and downtown residents will spill out onto the streets and seek out services and entertainment opportunities. I believe that our Urban Environment will come alive with activity. The successful spaces we have now will only be enhanced by these new projects and further demonstrate WHY DESIGN MATTERS in our Downtown......

The driver passed empty parking spaces until he finally backed into a spot near the entrance of the garage. A check of the tag showed the car was stolen out of Broward County. Several officers approached the car and immediately smelled the odor of marijuana coming from the vehicle. Both occupants were removed from the car and questioned. The first suspect, Devin Salley, told officers the car he was driving was a rock car, a vehicle that is exchanged for drugs. Salley couldnt provide the names or addresses of people he was supposedly visiting in the city. After more questioning, Salley told officers he came to Boca Raton to break into cars, and said there was a window punch under the front seat. The other occupant, Xavier Nelson, also couldnt offer a reason for his presence in the city. After repeated questioning Nelson stated Come on Sarge, you know whats up and Im going to jail. A search of the car turned up numerous items that were reported stolen from cars in the city of Boca Raton the day prior. Items included five cell phones, a wallet, drivers license, credit cards, a Coach gift card, a purse and other items. Nelson and Salley were both charged with Burglary/ Theft from Auto, Vehicle Theft, Possession of Marijuana, Loitering & Prowling and Possession of Burglary Tools.Boca Raton Police arrest suspects in rock car breaking into cars

The theft occurred on February 1st shortly after 7:00 pm. The suspect caught on store video asked to see several watches. Store employees say the man spoke with a southern accent and visited the store on at least two occasions. The second time he returned with a large stack of cash in what appeared to be a bank envelope. He tried on two different watches and when it appeared the employees were distracted, he ran out of the store wearing one of the watches. The watch is described as a rosegold, 18 karat Rolex, with a brown face and roman numerals.

26 -Edition 135 February 22, through February 28, 2013 www.bocaratontribune.comBusiness NewsBusinessThe Boca Raton Tribune Psychological Warfare: Perception vs. Reality CARLO BARBIERIBy Carlo Barbieri Its not unusual for people to fear what they dont understand. The first day of a new job can be traumatic for those who havent quite grasped the necessary tasks. People are afraid to fly because of perceived dangers, even though flight is proven to be the safest way to travel. Its often said that perception is more real than reality. Tapping into a persons psyche and ones ability to comprehend can change that persons mind and make him or her disregard good sense in favor of what sounds good and believable, but is probably not true. When people of any nation reach the point of fearing their own government because they dont understand or believe what political leaders are telling them, that is a horrible day. Unfortunately, it appears the United States is heading in that direction. Politicians are often said to speak in partial truths, doing fancy verbal dances around facts and offering vague explanations. Historically, this hasnt always been the case. President Harry S. Truman was known for his candor. The buck stops here, a phrase most associated with him, says it all. During the Cuban Missile Crisis, President John F. Kennedy had to confront the country on national TV with facts about a potentially disastrous situation just 90 miles off the coast of the United States. He couldnt mince words and he didnt. Lately, though, politics has become a negative business. The elections of 2012 provided fertile ground for politicians running for various offices to sow the seeds of negativism against their opponents. Many of their ads and TV commercials were simply recitations of their foes dark sides, with little attention to accuracy. No wonder many voters were confused and even fearful of the outcome of some political races. Many politicians try to convince people that something is good or bad, even if they cant specify why. They also argue that some issues are bad for people, and if voters dont agree, the politicians tell them they are out of touch or have taken the argument out of context. Abortion is such an issue. If you side with those who are against abortion, you are told you are ignoring womens rights. If you favor abortion as a choice, you are labeled a child killer. The early 21st century isnt the first time fear has been used as a whip. In the early 1950s, Wisconsin U.S. Sen. Joe McCarthy launched his Witch Hunt to root out communists in America at a time when the U.S. was terrified of the Red Scare. Many innocent people were blacklisted and their lives and occupations destroyed in this psychological cleansing effort. A decade later, American soldiers were sent to Vietnam to fight a war they didnt understand, dispatched by a military that didnt understand the ramifications. Soldiers trained in World War II battle tactics died in jungles filled with snipers and booby traps tactics they didnt understand. At home, the inability to grasp what was truly happening ignited protests. Soldiers returning home from Southeast Asia had to face the misinformed hatred of people who should have praised them for answering the nations call. It would take decades for that situation to be fully understood. In past columns, we have predicted the coming of a Second American Civil War, one that will divide us into classes. This war of mind and not blood will mainly pit the middle class and wealthy against each other. It is happening right now. The leftist minority is intimidating the conservative majority, calling them right-wingers and telling them they are bad, wrong or not in. Liberals say that if you dont agree with them, then you are wrong and possibly antiAmerican. Liberals disregard the importance of the nations growing financial crisis, allowing the debt to rise, federal spending to remain out of control and the economy to suffer without a second thought. They endorse the idea that the monied class can always be tapped for more cash. Success, they say, is bad. Entrepreneurs should pay more so the non-monied classes can survive without work. This nation needs to grasp reality. People need to bring common sense back to the table. It is the only frame of mind that will allow Americans to disregard lies and demand the truth, to question lame rhetoric and pursue the facts, to halt overspending and bring stability to a nation whose leaders are leaving its citizens wanting.safeHands Alcohol Free Hand Sanitizer Joins Nations Largest Hispanic-Owned Pharmacy Chain, NavarroContinuing its mission to Safe the Planet, safeHands Alcohol Free Hand Sanitizer announced entry into the South Florida retail market with the nations largest Hispanic-owned pharmacy chain, Navarro Discount Pharmacies, Inc. safeHands, the worlds first line of soothing and effective alcohol free hand sanitizers developed for multiple daily use, joins the retailers private label, Vida Mia providing shoppers a new and revolutionary alternative to alcoholbased hand sanitizer.

Edition 13529for news 24/7 go to bocaratontribune.com www.bocaratontribune.comFebruary 22, through February 28, 2013SportsThe Boca Raton Tribune SportsLong gone are the days in which a website offered insightful news and a fresh take on the sports world. Lately, sports blogs and websites are settling for cookie cutter stories about overhyped topics, whether its Tim Tebow, LeBron James or the Los Angeles Lakers. Sports website gurus, Pedro Heizer and David J. Verjano, are primed to change all that. Heizer and Verjano are starting the newest Miami sports site that will revolutionize the way sports news is delivered to Miami fans: LiveFromThe305.com. Too many sites are sacrificing sports journalism in favor of driveby entertainment, says Pedro Heizer, the founder and editor of CrankUpTheHeat.com and 90MinutesStrong.com and sports editor of The Boca Raton Tribune. People are ignorantly fed Hotties of the Week and clich, dated sports stories from sites that define themselves by social media fame. Live From The 305 will provide a unique balance of content that separates it from the excessive extravagance of sports infotainment blogs and the cookie cutter coverage of newspaper sites. The site will delve into stories that are beyond the box score and offer indepth analysis of relevant Miami sports stories. Rather than wasting time on game recaps, Live From The 305 will deliver lasting, insightful coverage. We want to break away from the mold of entertainment sports sites and revolutionize the Miami sports scene, says Verjano, founder and editor ofMiamiSportsGeneration. com and an experienced Marketing Communications Professional. Thats why we collaborated to launch Live From The 305. In addition to covering the major Miami sports teams, like the Miami Heat, Miami Dolphins and Miami Marlins, Live From The 305 will also cover the Florida Panthers, Miami Hurricanes, Fort Lauderdale Strikers, and other local South Florida sports teams. Heizer and Verjano are not only sports website veterans but savvy social media users as well, engaging the Miami sports community through various social media platforms. Heizers 90 Minutes Strong(@90MinutesStong), a soccer website, went from 100 followers to over 1,500 in less than a week. Live From The 305, a site dedicated to Miami and South Florida sports, will be active on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and any other relevant social media platforms that may emerge in an effort to connect with fans. Reaching out to Miami sports fans and creating a discussion about local sports teams is just part of our passion, stated Verjano. We dont just follow trends, we create them to further the conversation, add greater insight and contribute to the fan IQ, added Heizer.

The largest one-time gift in the history of FAU athletics, it will be used to support athletic operations, including FAUs intercollegiate athletic program, the stadium, scholarships and academic priorities. In recognition of this gift, the football stadium at FAUs Boca Raton campus will be named GEO Group Stadium. We are incredibly grateful for this wonderful gift, said FAU President Mary Jane Saunders. It is so exciting to now have a name for our beautiful stadium, and I couldnt think of a better way to do that than by way of philanthropy. This gift is a true representation of The GEO Groups incredible generosity to FAU and the community it serves. It is especially meaningful because George Zoley, GEOs chairman, is a two-time FAU alumnus and former chair of our Board of Trustees.

Through its charitable foundation, The GEO Group Foundation, the company supports charitable and educational causes nationwide and fosters national and international amateur sports competition. Were delighted with the opportunity to enter into this groundbreaking partnership with Florida Atlantic University. Our company has always been committed to making a positive contribution to the communities in which we serve, said George C. Zoley, Ph.D., chairman and chief executive officer of The GEO Group. Every year through our charitable foundation, The GEO Group Foundation, we donate approximately $1 million to support local charities and schools and to fund college scholarships for students in the communities we serve across the country. This new partnership between The GEO Group Foundation and the FAU Foundation will allow the University to support its scholarship and academic program priorities and will serve as a catalyst for continued academic and economic growth in South Florida. FAU and The GEO Group Foundation also will continue to work together to create solid learning opportunities for students enrolled at the University, specifically in the areas of criminal justice, social work and nursing. FAU will kick off the 2013 season at the University of Miami on Saturday, Sept. 3 in its first year as a member of Conference USA. The teams first home game in GEO Group Stadium is scheduled for Saturday, Sept. 21 against Middle Tennessee State University.Fau Receives $6 Million Gift From The Geo Group
30 -Edition 135 February 22, through February 28, 2013 www.bocaratontribune.comvariables are eliminated. This hasnt been the case so far with Indiana and Miami this season, as they have yet to play in Miami. Indiana played Miami tough last post-season, no doubt. And give them credit, they didnt back down. But are we conveniently forgetting that Chris Bosh missed 5 1/2 of the 6 games in that series? You know, the Chris Bosh who averages 17.7 PPG and 7.4 RPG. The one that coach Spoelstra and other players have called the most important player on the team. The one, who when inserted into the starting lineup, helped beat the Thunder in 4 straight games. Bosh makes the world of difference for Miami, especially in a series when defenses ID on Wade and James. Yet, without Bosh, Miami still beat the Pacers in 6 games, winning 2 in Indiana. And the Pacers arent much different than last year. Theyve lost Collison, and gained DJ Augustin, which is actually a downgrade. They added Ian Mahinmi, which is good, and Lance Stephenson has emerged in the rotation with Dahntay Jones out. Yes, Paul George has improved tremendously, but is it enough to consider them real threats against the HEAT? David West and Roy Hibbert are problems for the HEAT, but they overcame them last year in a series where they started Dexter Pittman one game, and played without Haslem for another. Did you hear me? Dexter Pittman started a playoff game! The Pacers do have a great defense. They give up a league best 89.9 PPG. But dont let that number fool you too much, they also play at one the leagues slowest paces, and are 28th in PPG at 92.8 offensively. The HEAT are tops in East in offense 103.2 PPG and defensively, Miami is 12th in the league. It wont be EASY for the HEAT to beat the Pacers, but with a healthy HEAT team, it wont take any more than 6 games again, maybe 5. And if the records maintain, the Pacers will have to battle the Knicks for the right to play the HEAT in the Conference Finals. Indiana is a threat, but Miami has too much depth, experience, and desire to be dethroned by the Pacers. Either way, it will be a tremendous series, if Indiana gets there.Sports By: Matt PinedaAmid Miamis 7 game win streak and in the wake of All-Star weekend, people and the media are beginning to look toward the playoffs, and rightfully so. Once you get past the talk of the Lakers and if they will or wont make the playoffs, there has been a lot of talk about determining who is the HEATs biggest threat in the Eastern Conference. As Miami is making its push for their third consecutive trip to the Finals, who stands in their way? Today, both Colin Cowherd and Stephen A. Smith of ESPN have said that it is the Indiana Pacers. Now, before I go any further, let me say that I do agree with them. The Knicks rely too much on the outside shot, and who knows if they will be healthy to contend with Miami. The Bulls are no match without Derrick Rose and it seems as though we have no idea if he will be back. And the Nets just dont stand a chance against Miami, as well as Boston without Rajon Rondo. Back to those Pacers. Yes, they are the HEATs biggest threat by default. But are they really a threat? Could they beat Miami in a 7-game series? Sure, its possible, but is it likely? Not at all. You can point to the two dominating wins the Pacers have had over Miami this season, and many will make the case that they have what it takes to beat the HEAT. They held Miami to a season low 77 points earlier this year and Ray Allen has yet to score against the Pacers. But if we have learned anything about the HEAT, it is that the regular season is of little importance when the playoffs roll around. In 2011, Miami lost 3/4 to Boston in the regular season and then beat them 4-1 in the playoffs. They lost all 3 match-ups with the Bulls that season and then beat them 4-1. Last year they struggled against Boston still, and yet got past them. Its true all over the league, not just in Miami. The regular season doesnt always foreshadow correctly. The regular season is much different than the playoffs. When everything is equal, you find out who the better team is. Travel schedules and practice time is the same, and the Are The Pacers a Threat to Miami?
