Throughout the succeeding years of 2013, I discovered that was merely an introduction to the two sisters remarkable volunteer contributions to the well-being of the citizens of Boca Raton. In 2013, Jerry Fedele, President and CEO of Boca Raton Regional Hospital called it, helping hundreds of thousands with millions. Ruth McGoldrick arrived in South Florida in 1964. Her mental suitcase overflowed with practical experience. The actual luggage she brought with her was filled with her personal awards and commendations; some from those from the highest levels of international government. Ruths husband, General Francis McGoldrick was Commander at Eniwetok Island and later, Chief of Staff of the Army in Korea. Ruth and the General has recently returned from Korea. After spending years at many Armed Force bases throughout the United States, Ruth gained merchandising experience based on the Army PXs. As the Commanding Generals wife in Korea Ruth founded a school for young girls who were forced into a life of prostitution, because they were not trained for other employment. She also worked daily with paraplegics and helping war veterans craft items to make and sell for income. Ruths handsome velvet-boxed Scroll from Korean President, Pak Chung Hi, reads with pure enthusiastic devotion and profound understanding, you have given immeasurable assistance to the paraplegic Village of Seoul, in operating the workshop of the Village, in an effort to help develop the living standards of the severely disabled veterans of the Korean war. This is just a portion of the knowledge and experience Ruth brought to the Boca Raton Community Hospital when Volunteer Tommy Robinson urged her to join the hospitals volunteers. In 1971 her work began in the hospitals Thrift Shoppe as Secretary. Two years later she was First Vice President and later President of the Debbie Rand Memorial Service League. Founded in 1962 by Volunteers led by Glorida Drummond, the Leagues purpose was that of raising funds for the hospitals support, through the Debbie Rand Foundation. Three years later, Ruths sister, Sally and her husband Colonel John Crowe also retired to South Florida near the McGoldricks. From that time on Ruth and Sally began their daily early morning phone calls to each other. Sally became Chairman of the hospitals gift shop at the same time she encouraged Ruth to dedicate her effort to the Thrift Shoppe. In 1983, under Sallys leadership, the Gift Shoppe celebrated its significant financial contribution to the funds raised by the Debbie Rand Memorial League and the grand opening of the shops newly decorated space in the hospital lobby. Sally left the Gift Shoppe to ever-increasing annual profits that were greater than at any time its previous history. Even following a paralyzing aneurism, Sally worked with great effort to contribute her creativity and marketing recommendations. Ruth was her devoted messenger. A great loss was Sallys shortened life. Pictured in the hospital lobby she continues to be remembered for her remarkable accomplishment as Chairman of the Gift Shoppe. Following Ruths term as President of the League, she returned to the Thrift Shoppe. Thus began her year of eight-hour Volunteer days, sharing her past experience to bring continually increasing sales and profits for the Shoppe. When Ruth began her stint only one delivery man, Rufus, drove the Shoppes somewhat decrepit paneled truck. The truck was used for the delivery of items sold and the pickup of donations. Donations included used furniture, all sorts of household items, appliances and clothing. Under Ruths leadership, began to exceed expectations. Over the next ten years the Thrift Shoppe grew in popularity. It was always a steady moneymaker. In addition to its increasing sales, the Thrift Shoppe held an annual tea and fashion show attended by local residents; these events provided publicity for the Shoppe and attracted many new customers. to compliment the volunteers who worked closely with her. She recalls those years by saying, morale was very high. The Thrift Shoppe workers became a family. Everyone worked very hard. When space at the north end of the Thrift Shopped building was made available to the DebbieRand League the volunteers eagerly accepted the offer. The space served for offices for auxiliary functions and for an Activities Center to be used for meetings and other League projects. In 1980, Ruth McGoldrick was named General Chairman of the Debbie-Rand Thrift Shoppe. The Story of Two Sisters Place in the History of Boca Raton
4 -Edition 153 July 19, through July 25, 2013 www.bocaratontribune.comCommunity News By Jake Becker A Delray Beach doctor was arrested and charged in the death of a 50-year-old patient, who overdosed on methadone, according to the Palm Beach County Sheriffs Office. Dr. Barry Schultz, 57, was charged with one count of homicide negligent manslaughter and one count of writing an unlawful prescription. His bail was set at $50,000 for the first charge and $25,000 for the second. According to a sheriffs arrest affidavit, Schultz prescribed a lethal amount of methadone to his patient, David Tain, who died from an overdose. Schultzs license to practice medicine in Florida has been suspended, according to records from the Floridas Department of Health. He began practicing as a medical doctor in January 1987. In March 2011, Sheriffs investigators seized medical records that showed about 45 of Schultzs patients had received excessive methadone during an eight month period, according to the arrest report. Barry was arrested in 2011 for illegally distributing more than 60,000 tablets of oxycodone to at least six of his patients continually over a nine month period and overprescribing painkillers to almost three dozen of his patients, investigators said. This resulted in the suspension of his medical license and jail time.Former Delray Beach Physician Charged with manslaughterBy Oldine JosephA WWII veteran is making a name for himself not for his military service but for his spirit and charm in the hallways of Delray Medical Center.

Delray Beach City Commissioner Shelly Petrolia was also present and was among those who signed his huge birthday card.It means a lot to me that so many people are here to shake his hand and congratulate him, give him a kiss on the cheek, just give some warm expressions of their gratitude, Barry Carroll said of his father. As his son Im really proud of him.Carroll began volunteering at the hospital five years ago after recovering from a heart attack in 2003. He said he was grateful to the medical staff for the wonderful care, and wanted to give back. After a few weeks they had me straightened out again, said Carroll, who now has a pacemaker. I just owe so much for that, I wanted to do something. There were red and blue balloons hung up everywhere, hats decorated with the American flag, streamers, and delectable goodies such as bags of chocolate chip cookies with flags strung beside them. In addition ice cream and peach cobbler were served. Carroll sat with his wife Helen Carroll at a table near a mini-stage where a slideshow of pictures was projected while his son Barry Carroll detailed the major events from the past century. Hes worked hard all of his life, Barry Carroll said. He has served people in the military and whenever hes had an opportunity hes gone out of his way to be a blessing to other people.At 100, Veteran Still Wheels Patients Around Hospital

The recording of Amanda Zuckerman, 28, a contestant on the 15th season of CBS Big Brother, is the latest in a string of offensive comments, by contestants who are having their every move caught on camera for a chance to win $250,000, various other prizes, and at least 15 minutes of reality show fame. Zuckerman was recorded using a derogatory word to refer to house guest Andy Herren who is gay as Faggoty Ann and Kermit the Fag. In another incident on June 27, houseguest Kaitlin Barnaby was recorded telling Zuckerman, I just said the n-word! to which Zuckerman callously replied, So what? Infuriated viewers loaded videos of both clips and a series of other scenes on Youtube and they have since spread like wildfire on social media sites as well as fan forums. Zuckerman could not be reached for comment as the contestants have been stripped of their cell phones and have no contact with the outside world. Zuckermans mother and business partner, Marilyn Zuckerman, declined an interview with the Delray Beach Tribune on Wednesday. I think were going to let her come home and conduct her own interviews, said Marilyn Zuckerman, a resident of Boca Raton. She however sent a text message to the Palm Beach Post defending her daughter. We did not see the comment. She wrote, according to the newspaper. Amanda has been in the theater arts her whole life. Her roommate in NY was gay. She embraces the gay community and has many gay friends. Im sure the comment was made with affection and definitely not malice. Its unfortunate that the blogs and media sometimes seems (sic) to blow things out of proportion. On a recent installment of the show, CBS responded to criticism by playing for viewers a three-minute montage of previously un-aired discussions. The network also issued a statement shortly after saying that Big Brother is a reality show about watching a group of people who have no privacy 24/7 and seeing every moment of their lives. At times, the House Guests reveal prejudices and other beliefs that we do not condone. We certainly find the statements made by several of the House Guests on the live Internet feed to be offensive. Any views or opinions expressed in personal commentary by a House Guest appearing on Big Brother, either on any live feed from the house or during the broadcast, are those of the individual(s) speaking and do not represent the views or opinions of CBS or the producers of the program. Before arriving into the Big Brother house Zuckerman said in an interview with the Big Brother Network that she is often a little too honest and inappropriate. The show has been mired in controversy since it began on June 25 after live-feed viewers, who pay for an around-the-clock three-month subscription from the network, revealed numerous House Guests including Zuckerman making discriminatory and sexist comments. of two contestants from their jobs, which they have no idea of. The Big Brother house itself and microphones recording and tracking the House Guests as they interact and play the game. The show, prompted by angered fans has since revealed a small portion of the comments made by some not all contestants in its recent primetime broadcast.
8 -Edition 153 July 19, through July 25, 2013 www.bocaratontribune.com EDITORIAL By C. Ron Allen EDITORIALS/LETTERSThe Boca Raton TribuneFounded January 15, 2010 Publisher Business C.E.OC.O.O. Editorial Interim Editor Managing Editor Copy Editor Online Edition Editor Social Media Software Engineer Amidst the hoopla and revelry this week, a pall hung over the communities of Prescott and Yarnell in Central Arizona. While many of us were observing the Independence Day festivities by playing with sparklers and watching fireworks, 19 homes were void of a father, a husband, a son or a friend. Instead of residents waving patriotic red, white and blue ensigns, the flags were flown at half mast. The deaths of those 19 members of the elite Prescott Fire Department Granite Mountain Hotshots plunged the neighboring towns into mourning. The tragedy is the worst in a wildfire since 1933, when 29 firemen died battling a fire in Griffin Park, Los Angeles. The biggest loss of firefighters was 341, and two paramedics, in the 9/11 terrorist attacks in 2001. I am heartbroken about what happened and my thoughts and prayers go out to the families and residents. This devastating loss is certainly a reminder of the grave risks our firefighters take every day on our behalf and in communities across this nation. Those heroes lost their lives protecting the community in the face of danger for the betterment of others. The irony here is that the flames hadnt even touched Prescott, the neighboring town of approximately 40,000 residents. But like many other fire departments across the state, the Prescott team jumped in to help fight the ferocious flames in Yarnell Hill. This elite group was highly trained, with high standards of fitness. 80-hour critical training course and refresher each year, and they are also offered fire safety courses. Each has to pass a test carrying a work pack, as well as run one and a half miles in 10 minutes 35 seconds. They also have to complete 40 situps in 60 seconds, 25 push-ups in 60 seconds, and seven pull-ups. These were the guys who went out and walked five miles, they slept out Our common bond is our love of hard work and arduous adventure, according to the groups web site. As I listened to news reports and through my research, I surmised that being a part of the Hotshots is a way into the fire department. They were like the Seals of the United States Navy or the United States Army Special Forces, sometimes referred to as the Green Berets, so the victims were young guys between 21 and 43 with young kids. Thats what makes it hurt. I saw photos of the pickup trucks and cars parked at the Hotshots parking lot at Station 7. Most of the owners will never come back for them. And there was the final photo Andrew Ashcraft, a father-of-four, texted to his wife before perishing in the inferno. But the tear jerker was an interview with Ashcrafts heartbroken wife, Juliann. The couple had been texting each other throughout the day with him telling her how much he loved and missed her, and how proud he was of their young children until he abruptly stopped. I asked, Will you be sleeping out there tonight? she told the Today show as she struggled to hold back the tears. And of course there was no reply and they all laid out there that night. Juliann now has to raise those kids more so explain to them why daddy isnt coming home. The toddler will never know his dad. I am constantly reminded that the life of a firefighter is truly a manifestation of the highest calling, which is to serve humanity. Their investment makes our nation a safer place. They bravely did their jobs. They paid the ultimate price and their sacrifice will never be forgotten.They Paid the Ultimate Price 10396 Sunstream Lane Boca Raton, FL 33428 www.HaulinJunkLLC.com Jason@HaulinJunkLLC.com 1-85-Junk Away (1-855-865-2929)HAULIN JUNK LLC Jason Budd Manager 1-85-Junk Away YOU BEE CALLIN WE BEE HAULIN Commercial HAULIN JUNK LLC
Edition 1539for news 24/7 go to bocaratontribune.com www.bocaratontribune.comJuly 19, through July 25, 2013 EDITORIALS & LETTERS By Dr. Synesio Lyra, Jr.POSITIVE LIVING world, having received his education in four of them. When he resided in southern California, he wrote a weekly column for the daily Anaheim Bulletin, which was carried for about six years, until he moved to south Florida. By Douglas HeizerTHOUGHTS FROM THE PUBLISHER If things dont go well today, dont lose hope about your projects because a new day is coming. Often, what doesnt occur today may happen tomorrow, even in a much larger scale. Hurrying through any activity most often is not the proper alternative! It has been correctly acknowledged that haste makes waste! As Ive travelled extensively around the world, Im always impressed to see buildings, bridges, and works of art which took countless years to complete. Perhaps thats why they retain their significance and value through many generations after their original appearance! All human activity needs to be well measured in terms of what it takes to complete it, how long is necessary for its successful termination, what ensures its safety for those who shall benefit from it, and how its impact can be meaningfully felt among many of succeeding generations! People can receive encouragement regarding the urgency of what they are doing, and even concerning the rate with which the labor is being conducted. Deadlines are important and should be taken seriously! What is not good is to force a pace other than what can be delivered by the one doing the work. Each person should be entitled to reach their destination in the manner most ideal for ones self. What some people can do time and theres nothing wrong with that, as long as the task is completed within reason. Furthermore, those engaged in any production need to have the proper tools, to be at the right location, and to be free from unnecessary interruptions so that the labor goes on unhindered till completion. For many activities, its possible and most desirable that a schedule be set up with a target date for its termination. A good plan devised will best guarantee the execution of every portion of a major project until it comes to full fruition. Be diligent in all you do, avoid unnecessary delays, and remove any laziness which might creep in. Plan your best and the job shall be done in a timely fashion! Make Progress at the Necessary Speed!By Len M. Allen Who are you wearing? Does that unless you are a celebrity walking the so-called red carpet prior to a major entertainment event, such as the Academy Awards for motion pictures or the Grammy Awards for music. Then we understand the gown (or outfit) you are wearing? In response, we receive a list of wonderful costume designers who excel at making people look good by covering their faults and flaws with beautiful costumes. This is not a recent phenomenon. During the Renaissance Era, for instance, lavish costume balls were staged with dignitaries showing up in elaborate masks and even more elaborate suits and dresses. Most people share a common desire to cover themselves with costumes to conceal their true identity. Even fictional superheroes of comic books, like Superman, Ironman, Spiderman and Batman, wear costumes. Putting on outfits of disguise seems deeply entrenched in our collective psyche. Children find it liberating to play dress up. We find it enjoyable when people we know do not know who we are because of our attire. I remember working for a company years ago where part of my job was dressing up in a cow costume and attending public events. Since no one knew who I was, I felt empowered to act zany and feel totally free. In the workplace, costumes can support our need to succeed. Years ago the book Dress for Success became a big seller, advising business and professional people how to select and wear clothing that would enhance how their colleagues and clients would respond to them. Standards for proper attire have changed greatly, but we still have the tendency to evaluate people according to how they look on the outside. Even the Bible affirms this. In 1 Samuel 16:7 it states, The Lord does not look at the things man looks at. Man looks at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart. That simple passage makes two important points. One is that we can be fooled by the way people appear externally, unable to see their inner motives or hear their secret thoughts. As the adage tells us, Looks can be deceiving. The other is that although we might be able to disguise ourselves to other people, God can see through our costumes and understand who we really are. That is why Proverbs 16:2 declares, All a mans ways seem innocent to him, but motives are weighed by the Lord. But there is another aspect to the most of us never consider. According to the Scriptures, after we die we will face a judgment day in which we will you wearing. If we answer that we are wearing good works or wellmeaning efforts, the Bible says that will not be sufficient. Only one costume will be accepted on that day. Let me explain. One passage, Galatians 3:26-28, states, For in Christ Jesus you are all sons of God, through faith. For as many of you as were baptized into Christ have put on Christ. There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is no male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus. Another verse tells us, put off the old selfand put on the new self, which in the likeness of God has been created in righteousness and holiness of the truth (Ephesians 4:22-2). There are many similar passages, but each reaffirms when we stand before God for our individual day of judgment, only the covering of Jesus Christ the robes He has made for us will receive divine approval. On that very special day, who will you be wearing?Len M.

Boca Raton detectives met with the male, identified as Joshua Housen. Housen told detectives that earlier in the day he stole the necklace from a home he cleaned in Boca Raton. Housen added that he has worked for the same company for over a year and during this time, he has stolen jewelry and cash from numerous homes. Detectives contacted the cleaning company which employed Housen and got the address of the home on Boca Marina Court that he cleaned earlier in the day. Detectives met with the home owner and learned that during the last few months, she noticed multiple pieces of jewelry were missing from her home. The victim identified the necklace found in Housens possession as belonging to her. Housen was charged with theft from a person 65 years of age or older. The investigation is ongoing and detectives believe there may be additional victims. If you think you may have been a victim of this type of crime, please call Detective Kelly Shifflett at (561) 620-6134.Boca Raton, FL On Thursday, July 4th at about 1:50 a.m., Boca Raton Police officers responded to a report of several suspicious males riding bicycles and looking into cars in the parking lot of 940 Sweetwater Lane. When officers arrived they saw two males on bikes riding east on Sweetwater Lane. One male dropped his bike and took off running. The second male started to do the same, but stopped when the officer ordered him to. The male, identified as Logan Yannie, told officers he didnt know the male who was with him. Yannie added that met up with a friend named Kevin and was going to his house in Highland Beach to hang out. Yannie gave conflicting stories about why he was in the area. The witness identified Yannie as one of the males seen looking into cars. Yannie was charged with loitering and prowling and was released with a court date. On Friday, July 5th at about 2:30 a.m., officers met with two victims at the entrance to the Windwood development, who said their iPhones were taken from their home on SW 17th Court earlier in the evening.

Video shows the woman walk into the store and go directly to the rear, where she attempts to enter the mens restroom. After an employee tells her its the wrong restroom, she apologizes and then enters the womens restroom. After about 20 seconds, she exits the restroom, walks around the store and enters a second door leading to a back storage area. When confronted by a store employee again, the woman unzipped her hoodie and displayed a small black object attached to her chest by a strap.

I like underdogs and stories with social context, admits Seidelman, 60. The Hot Flashes is all about underdogs. Everyone has a challenge to overcome: body issues, racism, sexuality, divorce and disease. That does not mean we cant laugh. Sometimes the challenge is just the natural process of aging. In her 2006 film Boynton Beach Club a group of senior citizens deal with aging, dating, sex and loneliness. The story was based on an idea by Susans mother, Florence Seidelman, who actually lives in Boynton Beach. All three of Seidelmans most recent films played at the Miami International Film Festival. I love South Florida, says Seidelman. I visit often to see my mother. There is a lot to be learned from older people. When I started out everyone was older than me. This time I was older than the cast. The Hot Flashes was a six-year project with novice screenwriter Brad Henning. The film is dedicated to the memory of Brads mother Muriel, who died of breast cancer. Brad grew up in Texas and played basketball, Seidelman explains. As a middle-aged woman myself I can relate to the characters. Brad and I did a lot of noodling back and forth on the story. While the story is set in fictional Burning Bush, Texas, it was actually shot in a suburb of New Orleans. Louisiana has many strong incentives to have movies shot there, says Seidelman. We got additional breaks because we shot in an area that was damaged by Hurricane Katrina. Seidelman reveled in the fact she could cast a group of women who are fine actresses, yet do not get that much work in film. She stresses that the women trained very hard, eight hours a day for three weeks prior to shooting to believably play champion level women basketball players. She hopes the film will be an example to other directors to make better use of older women. Aging does not affect mens movie careers as much as it does women, she states. That sad fact of Hollywood is that after a certain age women become invisibleunless that woman is Meryl Streep. Seidelman has a long career of guiding women in acting careers. Her first film, Smithereens, was the first American independent film to compete at the 1982 Cannes Film Festival in France. Seidelman hit a home run with Desperately Seeking Susan in 1985, which featured singer Madonna in her first film role. The film also gave a jump-start to Aiden Quinn, John Turturro and comedian Steven Wright. The Hot Flashes is being marketed by a platform release, which means it has trial runs in selected areas. South Florida is one of only 12 markets. We truly home people will come out and see the film in its first weekend, she says. That is all-important for its future marketing. The Movies of Delray, Delray Medical Center and anticancer groups have been very helpful to us. We even plan to have a mobile mammogram unit parked at the theater. Susan Seidelman Interview
July 19, through July 25, 2013 www.bocaratontribune.com B2 Edition 153 Section B Entertainment Skip Sheffield bocaratontribune.com Pacific Rim is the newest mother of all monster films. Sure the story is absurd and the premise is beyond belief, but ever since King Kong in 1933, plausibility has never been a strong suit of monster movies. What is important is the wow factor, and Pacific Rim has it in spades. The story begins in the near future, in the year 2020. Slumbering dinosaur-like giants have arisen from the Pacific Ocean, and like Godzilla, Rodan and Mothra of old, they are wreaking havoc on the human population. To combat the Kaiju, as they are called, the countries of the world have put their heads together and have invented massive, lumbering robots known as Jeagers to do hand-to-hand combat with the alien creatures. The robots are controlled by two human Rangers working controls in tandem from a perch at the top of the robot. Not only are the Rangers working physically in tandem, their brains are united so each knows the others thoughts. The process is called drifting. This is what separates Travis Beachams fantastic screenplay from monster stories of old. The underlying theme of the story is cooperation for the common goodsort of like what the United Nations is supposed to do, but rarely does. imaginative and visionary Mexican writer-director. If you have ever seen Pans Labyrinth you know what I mean. Pacific Rim combines the ultra-fantastic with a very human story. The two principal characters are Raleigh Becket, a battle-scarred veteran Ranger played by Charlie Hunnan, and Mako Mori (Rinko Kikuchi), a novice, unproven Ranger. What she lacks in experience Mako makes up in will. She lost her family to a Kaiju attack, and like a World War II kamikaze pilot, she is out to avenge her loss and fight for her familys honor. Mako was taken in as an orphaned child by Stacker Pentecost (note the name), the commanding Ranger officer, played with stentorian dignity by Idris Elba. Stacker feels a paternal concern for Mako, and though he knows she has what it takes, he is reluctant to allow her to risk her life. There are many secondary characters good and bad to flesh out the story. My favorite is Ron Perlman, who has been in several of del Toros films. Perlmans character is Hannibal Chau (again note the name), a Hong Kong black marketer who deals organs from Kaiju carcasses for profit. Perlmans ridiculous-looking completely over-the-top costumed character provides great comic relief. So does Charlie Days nerdy scientist, Dr. Newton Geizler. In fact Pacific Rim is funnier than it ever is scary. While the CG special effects and mechanically marvelous set pieces are amazing; the best ever in a monster movie, you see one Kaiju vs. Jeager battle, youve seen them all. The endless combat is reminiscent of the recent Man of Steel but the clashes-of-titans are ameliorated with the human story. You just know that handsome, fearless Raleigh is like beauty Mako and she with him. No, there is nothing new in Pacific Rim. It is just done better than it ever has been before.

The records, produced between 1920 and 1958, were in a Long Island storage facility owned by Peter Muldavin, the worlds leading expert on American vintage childrens records, when the storm hit. Muldavin, also known as the Kiddie Rekord King, donated the water-damaged records to the RSA, which collects, organizes and protects access to digitized copies of vintage audio recordings at the Wimberly Library on FAUs Boca Raton campus. Mr. Muldavin understood our presented us with both a challenge and an opportunity, said Maxine Schackman, the RSAs director. We are excited to be working with such rare and wonderful artifacts from the 20th century. I cant wait to see the reaction when we are able to share our work online. The paper covers of many of the records feature beautiful artwork, story books and paper doll cut-outs that are being discarded because of mildew and mold. These are being preserved digitally and restored to original condition with the use of Adobe Photoshop. Some of the records are warped and many are hand washing. To help with the restoration, the RSA has purchased a vinyl record flattener, a device that slowly heats the recording between heavy metal plates. This is the most extensive restoration for the RSA, which has been restoring phonograph recordings for more than a decade. The digital images and music files from the records are expected to be available through RSAs passwordprotected Research Station by January 2014.FAU Works to Extract Sound and Digitally Restore Images from Phonograph Records Flooded during Hurricane Sandy

But what make change in the 21st century different from the kind of change experienced 50 years ago, for example, is its speed, intensity, and unpredictability: THINGS CHANGE FASTER TODAY. Technology is driving this increase in speed. The shelf life of products, for example, is getting shorter and shorter. New models, new methods, and new paradigms appear on the business scene daily. THINGS CHANGE MORE GREATLY TODAY. In the past, companies could remain competitive by making only incremental changes. Today, change happens on a massive scale. The so-called recession much of the world experienced some years ago was not really a recession at all. What was taking place was actually a fundamental restructuring of the economy, at both the national and international levels. Many of the jobs eliminated during that process are never going to return THINGS CHANGE MORE UNPREDICTABLY TODAY. There is no pattern to many of the changes in our world. Forecasting and long-range planning are highrisk activities now. We no longer can guarantee more of the same of anything. Perhaps the only prediction we can safely assume and act upon is the certainty that things will change! In this age of unreason, to the term suggested by writer Charles Handy, CEOs, managers, sales people and leaders must learn to think upsidedown, inside out, and backwards in order to cope with this unpredictable environment. Business consultant Tom Peters has called this ability thriving on chaos. To succeed, you must do more than cope with change; you must capitalize on it! Rather than a threat, we should view every change as an opportunity in disguise. Since you cant stop change, you must learn to take advantage of it. Here are three suggestions regarding change that we would be wise to consider from the Bible: 1. Keep a positive attitude toward change. Although not all changes are good, we do have the freedom to choose our attitude toward them. Change, even when it is negative, can be an ally If you take advantage of it and use it for good. Now your attitudes and thoughts must all be constantly changing for the better (Ephesians 4:23). 2. Never stop learning. Never think that you know it all. Stay humble and youll be surprised who you can learn from clients, enemies, employees, competitors, friends, even children. The intelligent man is always open to new ideas. In fact, he looks for them (Proverbs 18:15). 3. Stay flexible! Before glass bottles were invented, wine was kept in canteens made of animal skins. As the containers aged, they would become brittle and crack from new wine that was still fermenting and expanding. Jesus once said, You cant put new wine in old wineskins (Mark 2:21-22). Here was his point: When faced with change, we must adjust or we will explode! 2011, Purpose Driven Life. All rights reserved. Adapted from a column by Dr. Rick Warren, the author of numerous books, including the highly acclaimed, 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. It has been named one of the 100 Christian books that changed the 20th Century. He also has written The PurposeDriven Church. FAITHBy Rick Warren Q: Fifteen years ago, I married a man in Ft. Lauderdale. We have two boys, thirteen and eleven years old. We own a successful business in which we both work. We have a large home, savings in a brokerage account, a retirement account, a fine art collection, a house full of furniture, and a couple of upscale cars. My husband was born and raised in a small town in Texas. He told me that he had been married before, but had been divorced, went into the Navy, and when he was discharged, moved to Ft. Lauderdale. Two months ago, his first wife served him with divorce papers. The papers filed in Ft. Lauderdale, declared that he and she had a child, which she had raised, now seventeen years old. She asked for alimony, child support, and back child support, and distribution their marriage. We hired an attorney. The womans attorney told ours that the first wife had filed papers in Okalahoma, while my husband was in the Navy, but never followed through with them. She had lived with another man for years, but the sons age made it clear that the boy was my husbands son. Are my husband and I legally married? Since Texas has common law marriage, is she married to the man she has lived with? Can my husband be responsible for seventeen years of back child support to this woman? Alimony? Distribution of Property, which we have earned and saved? What rights would I have against him if we ever got divorced? A: If the woman in Okalahoma had not followed through with the original divorce, and no divorce judgment ever ended their marriage, you and your husband are not legally married. Since a person cannot be married to two people at the same time, the other woman and her live in cannot be married under Texas common law, or any other way. rights to alimony, child support, and that you and he now own are complex and driven by the facts concerning her relationship with the other man, whether or not she tried to find your husband over the last many years, and whether she could have found him if she had tried. If you and your husband own your titled property in joint names, it would be harder for her to establish an interest. Your husbands largest jeopardy might be for back child support. If the woman never tried to find him, or if she has always known where he could be served and never reached out to him for child support she may be barred from seeking it now, as child support can be waived under these narrow circumstances. If she had applied and received welfare payments for the child, the State of Texas might have a claim for reimbursement. It is less likely that she would be able to obtain an alimony award against your husband, or a distribution of property accumulated between you and your husband during the marriage. These rights, while statutory, in Texas and in well as in statute. She has lived with at least one other man, and perhaps more, while you and your husband earned the income, and accumulated your property, while working together. As to your right to claim these rights against your husband in a later legal action, Florida case law provides invests years in a marriage, only to find out that he or she is not legally married. by estopple, may be provided to you under such circumstances, if she can prove that she had no reason to believe that her husband had never legally divorced. This result will occur whether or not the husband had intentionally defrauded his wife or had erroneously depended on his first wife to complete the divorce proceedings. The right to distribution of property, which would have been marital, if the parties had legally been married, can be established through the construction by the court, or the parties settlement agreement, of a trust. Florida divorce law is designed to default to a fair, evenhanded, resolution of the marital relationships. principles broad enough and flexible enough to protect those who innocently believe that they are married, but are not. If you plan to stay together, it is suggested that after the divorce case is over, the two of you enter into a prenuptial agreement describing what happened, and re-establishing all rights between you, before you enter into a legal marriage.
20 -Edition 153 July 19, through July 25, 2013 www.bocaratontribune.comBusinessThe Boca Raton Tribune By Madison Mills In todays competitive housing market, every homeowner wants top dollar for their sale. One South Florida realtor is turning to the east to help get potential buyers for homes here in the west. Aviva Eyal uses her global influence to connect the buyers and sellers of these seemingly contrasting worlds. After living in Taiwan and learning to speak fluent Chinese, she moved here international Realtor at The Keyes Company, where she specializes in luxury real estate. Now, she is using her international knowledge previously untapped buyers: the Chinese. Eyal explained why the Chinese are interested in real estate here in the United States. The Chinese word for the United States is Mei Guo, meaning beautiful country. They have a special connection to the U.S, and now that Chinese leaders have opened the gates by allowing citizens to invest around the world, they are becoming more global, Eyal said. Chinese leaders are beginning to integrate a robust form of capitalism, causing the amount of prosperity in the country to reach an all-time high. China has become the worlds leading exporter and biggest trading nation. The leaders of China are also encouraging the expansion of their innovation sector. This will lead to an increase in private wealth amongst the Chinese, who will then be searching for lucrative investments for their newfound wealth. So what will the Chinese do with this excess cash? Aviva is hoping to entice Chinese profiteers to spend their money in the South Florida real estate market. Florida is especially attractive because it is a beautiful, commercial area that will allow buyers to get more for their money, explained Eyal. Here, they can live in a nice home on the water for the same price as a one bedroom condo in New York. This increase in buyers will then help the housing market continue to grow, as increased competition leads to increased sales. The more potential buyers there are for your home, the more likely it is that one of them will be a good fit for your sale. Eyals global contacts bring with them a much broader base of buyers to pull from. Her international skills dont end with her ability to speak multiple languages. She attended Su Chow University in Taiwan as well as Tel Aviv University in Israel, where she was born and raised (and learned to speak fluent Hebrew, making her trilingual). Her international experience in marketing and finance led her to live in Germany, London, New York and of course South Florida. Her incredible worldwide adventures have broadened her scope of influence, allowing her to base. Traveling and living all over the world has helped me understand other cultures and other peoples needs. The Chinese culture is very different, and you have to appreciate that culture, Eyal added. Bringing these clients to South Florida will help maintain the growth that has already begun within the real estate market here. Since the changes in the Chinese economy have left some Chinese with a surplus in wealth, there couldnt be a better time to introduce these investors to the sunshine state, and Aviva is just the person to make that introduction possible. I put all of myself and my heart into every transaction, and I build relationships with my clients. The best compliment I can receive is that a client is happy with their new home, said Aviva. Her ability to build lasting relationships with her clients will allow her to facilitate the needs of Chinese investors, helping both buyers and sellers to increase their profits. Local Realtor Broadens Home Buying MarketBoca Raton Regional Hospital today announced that it has been cited as a top-ranked regional hospital in U.S. News & World Reports 2013-2014 annual listing of Americas Best Hospitals. Boca Regional is ranked 21st in Florida and 9th in the MiamiFort Lauderdale metro area. U.S. News also rated Boca Regional a high-performing hospital in Gastroenterology/ Gastrointestinal Surgery and Gynecology.

Not only was the Hospital listed for the third consecutive year, but we have gone up in the rankings and were recognized as high-performing in two specialties. It is truly gratifying to be acknowledged in such a prestigious fashion for the care we provide. The 24th annual edition of Best Hospitals showcases less than 750 of the nations roughly 5,000 hospitals. Fewer than 150 are nationally ranked in at least one of 16 medical specialties. The rest of the recognized hospitals met a standard of performance nearly as demanding in one or more specialties. A hospital that emerges from our analysis as one of the best has much to be proud of, said Avery Comarow, U.S. News Health Rankings Editor. Only about 15 percent of hospitals are recognized for their high performance as among their regions best. Just three percent of all hospitals earn a national ranking in any specialty. The regional hospital rankings complement the U.S. News national rankings by including hospitals with solid performance nearly at the level of nationally ranked institutions. The regional rankings are aimed primarily at consumers who may not be willing or able to travel long distances for medical care. The rankings also give patients and their families more options of hospitals within their community and health insurance network. The rankings are derived out of an analysis of objective data including: death rates, patient safety and procedure volume. The rankings were published by U.S. News in collaboration with RTI International, a research organization based in Research Triangle Park, North Carolina. Highlights of the 2012-13 rankings will appear in the U.S. News Best Hospitals 2014 guidebook, to go on sale in August.

Thomas J. Madden, CEO of TransMedia Group, one of the nation's leading PR firms in launching new products and technologies, said it will highlight the unprecedented capabilities of the OEPI(TM) near-zero emission catalytic converter developed by internationally acclaimed scientist Dr. Francois P. Cornish, founder of FPCTech. Romney, CEO and co-founder of the new Sandy, UT based technology firm Arvus Global, said TransMedia will communicate the benefits of this breakthrough minimal emission technology, which will allow manufacturers to comply with the newly adopted federal emissions standards. "TransMedia will handle corporate public relations in the US and abroad for our exclusive world-wide marketing license agreement for the OEPI(TM) nearzero emission catalytic converter," Romney said. A nominee for the Nobel Prize in Physics, Professor Cornish has applied his inventive genius toward benefiting mankind, by developing an inexpensive, sustainable, clean energy technology that is the ultimate answer to the new emission standards announced by the Obama Administration, Madden said. "Our efforts will demonstrate how this remarkable non-platinum based technology supersedes current catalytic converter technology and is operable in automobiles, trucks and ships, and for aviation applications, said Madden, who was a top executive at NBC and American Broadcasting Companies before establishing TransMedia Group. "We will show how OEPI(TM) catalytic converter technology can run on any carbon-based fuel including jet fuel, bunker oil, diesel and gasoline, and even coal," he added. "Our public relations program will emphasize that this is the only certified zero emissions technology system in the world."

26 -Edition 153 July 19, through July 25, 2013 www.bocaratontribune.comSportsThe Boca Raton Tribune The Fort Lauderdale Strikers welcomed more than 80 players to their Summer 2013 tryouts which took place on Saturday, July 13 at the Strikers training facility at Fort Lauderdale Stadium. Interim head coach Ricardo Lopes, along with assistant coach Raoul Voss and other respected coaches from around South Florida were on hand to evaluate players, some of whom traveled from as far as Argentina to try out for the team. As is the case with all the tryouts we have, the diversity of the players trying out is great to see, said Strikers assistant coach Raoul Voss. Being able to have a tryout today was great timing. It gives several players the opportunity to join us on trial for preseason before we start the Fall season in the NASL. The open tryouts have been an excellent source of talent for the Strikers, who have signed several players, including Haitian defender Stephane Guillaume and ColombianAmerican midfielder Manny Gonzalez, from their play in an open tryout. Both contributed significant minutes this season and happened to be on hand to watch the tryouts, this time from the sidelines. The only thing you can do when you are playing in a tryout is to always give your best effort regardless of the position you are put in, remarked Guillaume. Im just trying my best to get the best out of me. Because whatever happens, Ill be satisfied with the decision knowing I gave everything I have. The tryouts kicked off at 8:00am with the players split up into four teams. The teams faced off against one another as the coaches watched for players who distinguished themselves. We are looking at overall talent. What we want to see is a high technical level, for them to be able to match the speed of our teams training sessions, said Voss.Strikers Brass looks for talent at Summer TryoutBOCA RATON, FL Florida Atlantic Universitys baseball team ended its 2013 season with a 4222 record and were listed in four postseason top-25 polls. The Owls were ranked No. 20 by Baseball America and Perfect Game, No. 22 by ESPN and No. 24 by Collegiate Baseball. It is gratifying to see the pollsters appreciate what we accomplished during the season, said John McCormack, FAUs head baseball coach. It is a testament to how hard the players worked and they should be very proud. The Owls won 14 of their last 16 games, captured the Sun Belt Conference Tournament title, advanced to the NCAA Chapel Hill Regional where they downed the nations No. 1 seed and tournament host North Carolina. FAU forced a 13 inning battle in the regional championship game that saw the Owls return home but not before becoming the No. 1 topic trending on Twitter by nights end. FAU returned home to see Hugh Adams earn All-American honors, Brendon Sanger receive regional recognition and Michael Sylvestri earn a selection in the 2013 major league draft, marking the 15th season in a row that an FAU player has been selected. Since that time, three additional players signed with independent teams. A total of 84 FAU players that John McCormack has recruited or coached at FAU have continued their professional baseball careers. The NCAA Regional finale marked the second time under McCormacks direction that FAU has advanced to an NCAA Regional final and his first 40+ win season as a head coach. FAU was just one of two teams in the state of Florida to advance to the regional championship game.FAU Baseball Ends Year in Four Top-25 PollsBy Chad Beattie JERUSALEM It may be two months until the start of soccer season but that is not stopping incoming Lynn University womens soccer player Amanda Feldstein, who was chosen to represent the United States at the 19th World Maccabiah Games. The junior from Staten Island, Fla., will be checking in with LynnFightingKnights.com to give updates on her experiences from in Israel from the culture to the games themselves. The Maccabiah 2013 Opening Ceremony will take place on July 18th, 2013 at Teddy Stadium in Jerusalem. About 32,000 people are expected to attend this outstanding event This will be the largest Maccabiah Games in history, with over nine thousand athletes representing 71 countries. The emotive ceremony will include the athletes march, the lighting of the Maccabiah torch, and live performances by local and internationally renowned artists such as Rami Kleinstein, one of Israels greatest composers, Grammy Award winning violinist Miri Ben Ari, X-Factor USA finalist Carly Rose Sonenclar, Canadian-born singer and winner of The Voice Israel Kathleen Reiter and Israeli star Harel Skaat. First journal entry from Amanda Feldstein: Its 9:12am now and at 11, we begin the touring portion of our trip called Israel Connect. We will begin with exploring the city of Tel Aviv down by the beach. When we arrived on July 8, it was after a long flight which found us being on the plane for 12 hours due to a delay! After arriving later that day we were to be up at 5:45am per instructions from coaches and chairs to start the training camp twoadays. Most of us woke up running on minimal sleep because of jet lag but we dealt with it. The next day (7/9) we scrimmaged a local team called ASA Tel Aviv, said to be the best pro team here. We lost 2-1 but it was a good game and we played well for having only 3 practices and being unfamiliar with each other. Check out my other pictures from around Israel! Talk to you soonAmandaLynns Amanda Feldstein Represents USA at World Maccabiah GamesThe Strikers were back at training this week as they begin preparations for the fall season and put the spring behind them. There is probably no player who wants to forget the spring more than Strikers goalkeeper Cody Laurendi. I have a very positive outlook and Im going to be ok, but it will take some time, said Laurendi. Obviously, you hate to see the guys struggle because you see the hard work thats put in day in and day out. Its been nearly three months since Laurendi was sidelined in the Strikers match against the Tampa Bay Rowdies on April 27. He was back at the stadium today, but his role on the team is going to be a bit different as he continues his recovery and rehabilitation. I just want to be someone who can be looked at to offer some positive reinforcement. With the successes I have enjoyed during my career, if I can project some of that onto others, that would be my main goal, added Laurendi. Facing a long recovery process may be daunting to a player, but Laurendi is used to working hard. His previous training regimen featured the very popular and physically demanding CrossFit, core training, flexibility training and even yoga. Laurendi would perform these workouts after training sessions with the team each day. You go from 100 miles an hour and the daily training routine of being a professional to zero, said Laurendi. So you have to use that time productively, whether its film study, reading or just a lot of walking. The team has made great strides in connecting with the community during the season and Laurendi also sees a role for himself in these efforts. Those would include making himself available to fans through team events or just offering words of advice to young Strikers fans who dream of becoming a pro. I was once that kid who would beg his parents to take him to a soccer game and then stay after to get an autograph. I want to be someone the fans can talk to on a personal basis and share my experiences, said Laurendi. Never believe someone elses opinion of yourself. You make your own.Laurendis recovery is a lot of work in progress
Edition 15327for news 24/7 go to bocaratontribune.com www.bocaratontribune.comJuly 19, through July 25, 2013Sports By: Brett Lerner The HEAT announced today they have exercised the amnesty clause on SF Mike Miller, which allows the remainder of his contract to come off the books with no penalty. According to Tim Reynolds of the Associated Press, the team tried to trade Miller for the past several days, but could not find a suitable trade partner to complete an attractive deal for both sides. Despite Pat Riley saying recently that he felt using the clause on Miller, or any other player on the roster was unnecessary but was ultimately leaving the decision up to owner Micky Arison, as he would be the one to pay the price if they had decided to keep Miller, literally. To keep it simple, the NBA sets a salary cap to tell each team how much they can spend to fill out their 15 man roster and while a team can go over this cap, they must then pay what is called a luxury tax to the NBA at the end of the league year. Under the new CBA, however, every year a team owes luxury tax, the amount increases exponentially as a penalty of sorts for overspending, a clause Pat Riley has been vocally against. Micky Arison was facing a $33 Million luxury tax bill and waiving Miller saves him $17 Million next season and potentially $40 Million over the next two. What comes with this move and why make it? Short term, if Miller wants to return to the HEAT, though unlikely, he is ineligible to do so until after the 201415 season. This prevents teams from using amnesty to do the contracts as teams do in the NFL. It also means the HEAT cannot amnesty anyone else for the rest of the current CBA in effect. Also, this could open the door to signing a player like Greg Oden, if he was previously unhappy with the money the team was offering him. The loss of Miller will also open the door for James Jones to step up and take over Millers spot. Long term though, this definitely increases the chances that Arison will take later tax hits to keep the Big Three together beyond next season because he is avoiding having to pay tax on Miller. It also creates more space to sign more impact role players to convince the Big Three to stay next offseason. There are a number of reactions from within the HEAT organization and Miller himself. Pat Riley calls the decision very difficult to amnesty Miller. Miller to AP: I understand. Very, very thankful for the opportunity that Ive had, but it hurts. Dwyane Wade to AP, reacting to Miller amnesty: Its tough to lose one of our brothers. But I think we all understand its not personal. Thanks to Tim Reynolds of the AP for the reactions. Crank Up The HEAT would like to take this opportunity to thank Mike Miller for a great three years in Miami. He left great memories, from the hobbling body of his coming out of nowhere to help seal the 2012 title during Game 5 of the Finals vs OKC, the 32-point game vs Toronto, the three made with one shoe in the 2013 Finals, and of course, being a huge part of helping Miami hoist two Larry OBrien trophies. Thank you, Mike, and always Let It Fly! Miami Heat Ocially Amnesty Two-Time NBA Champion Mike Miller, Whats Next?
28 -Edition 153 July 19, through July 25, 2013 www.bocaratontribune.comSports By: Pedro Heizer On Wednesday morning, the Fort Lauderdale Strikers officially announced the signing of Gnther Kronsteiner as not only their head coach, but also their newest sports director. The announcement has officially put to bed all speculation that former Miami Fusion star Ian The Strikers, who were holders of the worst record (2-2-8) in the Spring Season, will now look to make a complete 180 degree turn and atop of the NASL standings. Weve found a gentleman we think is really going to help us from a sports side take things to a new level, said Strikers president Tom Mulroy. Were really going to turn things up on the field from a competition standpoint. Kronsteiners resume is impressive: He began his professional career as a player in 1978 in Austria with Donawitzer SV Leoben. He later played with FC Wacker Innsbruck, where he won two titles with the team in the Austrian Bundesliga and participated in the UEFA Cup. He then went on to play with FC Salzburg, LASK Linz and finally with Rapid Lienz where he began his coaching career as a player/ coach in 1984. Kronsteiner has also worked as sports director for several organizations including FC Casino Salzburg, which reached the finals of the UEFA Cup in 1994. In 2000, he hired Hans Backe, former Head Coach for the New York Red Bulls, as the coach of FC Casino Salzburg. He then took over Austria Vienna as the head coach and led the team to the Quarterfinals of the UEFA Cup in 2005. He has an extremely good record from a coaching standpoint, added team president Tom Mulroy. Even with all the success in Austria, Krousteiner understands that to build the team in the way he wants will take time, and with the Strikers starting the Fall Championship Season on August 3rd versus the New York Cosmos, he doesnt have much of it. One of his first tasks will be trimming the fat as the roster currently stands at over 30 players. There are so many people practicing right now, said the 59year old from Austria. We will have to get rid of the players that dont make sense for us, because we need to put the team together with very little time. He knows the team had a lot of problems in the Spring season, and he hopes to bring the problems to light soon so they can have a successful Fall season, We need to look and see where the mistakes were and why this team under preformed. Kronsteiner added. Either the players were not good enough, or the coach was not good enough, or both things were not good enough. But we have to figure this out now if want to be able to He added that teams look forward to playing the Strikers because it will be an easy game. They should be scared when the Strikers are coming and this is what we want to do in the future, Kronsteiner said. One of the things the coach brought up was the Strikers goals against (24) and goals for (10) stats and he credits the separation between the players as the culprit, The defenders, the midfielders, and the forwards have to work much better together. In my opinion they didnt work together at all. Everyone was a bit separated. Its a fresh start for everyone, said Mark Anderson, who missed most of the Spring Season due to injury. We will definitely have a different mindset coming into the Fall and I believe that when you start with that, the results will come. It all begins with mentality, I dont know how soon youll see results on the pitch, but you will see a mental change immediately, Kronsteiner explained. Youll see a completely different team out there. Something that was interesting from Kronsteiner was how he emphasized discipline. There were rumors last season that players were not getting along in the locker room and that it was sink. Manny Gonzalez agrees, When you have bad results things tend to get disorganized, added the 22-year old midfielder in his first season with the Strikers. With a new coach we will all be on our toes as we will have to prove to him we deserve to be in the starting XI. Kronsteiner believes the Strikers have the right pieces to pull off a good run in the fall, but wishes he had more time to set everything up. We have a lot of potential here in Fort Lauderdale; the only thing that scares me is the time. We dont have enough time.Gnther Kronsteiner Ocially Introduced as New Strikers Head CoachSPORTS Mark Anderson, Gnther Kronsteiner, and Manny Gonzalez at the press conference on Wednesday morning. | Photo by: Pedro Heizer
