The current Mayor, Susan Whelchel, retains the office until March 2014 when term limitations occur. The election for Boca Raton Mayor will be held on March 11, 2014. Majhess currently occupies Seat D in the Boca Raton City Council. But now he feels compelled to take on Haynie and her ideas for development. There are two visions for Boca Raton competing right now and Susan Haynies vision is one of high density development, said Majhess. I think the other vision is a more responsible development. Kind of along the lines of where the citys grown over the last 85 years. The majority of the council, which includes his opponent, has been promoting developments based on transits which allow for greater density and less of a parking requirement. By having convenient stores closer to homes, there is a premise that people are going walk more or ride bicycles. However, Majhess worries that this is going to create more traffic, parking problems and eventually turn Boca Raton into an urban hub. I dont know if [people are] going to walk a quarter mile to lunch in the summertime in Boca Raton. Youre probably going to get in your car and drive, said Majhess. Its just going to create a traffic nightmare. The other difference, according to Majhess is that Haynies vision focuses on construction development as a way to appeal to business. The goal is to provide residential housing that will attract companies. But Majhess disagrees. I think we should just be focusing on attracting companies that want to relocate here and try to bring jobs, Majhess said. I think theres a lot more to business development than building a high density apartment building. Mark Guzzetta, who was involved in developing a downtown apartment building called Archstone, criticized his views. Majhess is afraid of the future, so he wants to take us back to the past, he told the Sun Sentinel. Its easy to shoot down everything when you dont have a vision for anything. As part of what qualifies him, Majhess credits his background in business as an international sales manager. However he gives most credit to just being a general member of the community for 17 years. Just from being a part of whats been going on for the last 5 years here in the city I think I have a pretty good handle on what the city can be doing, Majhess said. Next week the Boca Raton Tribune will have an exclusive interview with current Deputy Mayor Susan Haynie, stay tuned!The Race is On: Majhess Files His Intent to Run for Mayor Downtown Boca Unveils Winning Artwork, Poster to Reect Meet me on the PromenadeBOCA RATON Downtown Boca recently unveiled the vibrant artwork, created by Boca Raton resident MarJour Jourgensen, chosen to reflect this years Meet Me on the Promenade event, set for Oct. 25 and 26.

The incumbent, Anthony J Majhess has announced he will run for Mayor to succeed term limited Mayor, Susan S Whelchel. Some of the issues Weinroth will highlight during the upcoming campaign are planning for the Citys future growth while focusing on the current commercial and residential development to ensure Boca Raton is positioned to be the best place to live, work and raise a family. Our city is the envy of Palm Beach County as taxes and fees have been kept in check, Weinroth said. We need to continue to ensure our City is on a sustainable path with respect to fiscal, public safety and environmental issues while remaining guardians of our beautiful beaches and parks. It is important for us at this time to ensure we are making fact-based decisions that take into account the residents of the neighborhoods throughout the city, Weinroth continued. As a local small businessman, I am sensitive to the need to balance the needs of our business, medical and academic communities with their residential impact. My business experience, legal knowledge and attention to service make me uniquely suited to work together with the new Mayor and City Council to maintain a common-sense approach to the governance of our City. I will work to ensure equity and transparency while remaining accessible to everyone I am privileged to serve, Weinroth promised. Weinroth, an attorney admitted to practice in Florida, Massachusetts and New Jersey, currently serves as president and general counsel of Freedom Medical Services Inc, a medical supply company, located in Boca Raton, under the trade name of FREEDOMED.

Editorial Interim Editor Managing Editor Online Edition Editor Social Media Software Engineer The Boca Raton Tribune, address. sidered for publication. to the editor.Letter Guidelines Letters to the EditorBy Clay Robinson How are you feeling today? When presented with this question do you think only about aches and pains, or do you also think about your mental state? Many of us walk around each and every day with a million things on our mind. Thoughts that occupy your mind will actually determine how you feel. So when asked that question again, think about how you feel mentally. We are always told to take care of our body because its the only one we have. Well, that should apply to our mind also. When you feel bad mentally how do you react to others around you? Do you do and say things that cause even bigger issues? Afterwards do you regret some things you have said or done, or do you think nothing of it? If someone tells you that you hurt their feelings, does it bother you? These are questions that need to be asked, but are usually asked only in counseling sessions. I have occasionally asked people I know What do you think will happen if you stood on the corner and started screaming? It often gives me some insight into how that person feels about mental health. How do you think mental health is viewed in our society? Are you comfortable speaking about your thoughts and feelings? If someone you know asked for your help, what would you do? There are numerous approaches and questioning opportunities that can help a person begin to think about how they really feel. One main problem is many seldom get the chance until something bad happens. I recently had a discussion with an acquaintance who described how not taking mental health more seriously can have a lasting impact on you and those closest to you for years to come. She spoke with me about what she described as the unraveling of her sisters mental health due to lack of knowledge or understanding about mental health and her mothers denial. She described how as a young child she watched her sister engage in conversationswhen there was clearly no one there and exhibit other behaviors that where so extreme and contrary to the rest of her family members, she sensed something wrong. She discussed these behaviors over and over again with her mother and continuously begged her mother to seek out help for her sister. She was met with denial and the belief that she would grow out of it. Because this took place back in the early seventies in a small southern town, she had two things working against her, the lack of societys knowledge about mental health and her mothers fear of being ostracized. Fast forward to forty years later; her sister has still not received any help. She has floated from one unhealthy relationship to another, become the mother of two children, and spent years self-medicating with alcohol and other drugs. Her life as well as the lives of her children, siblings, mother, and plenty of others she has come into contact with has been negatively impacted in some way because of the decision to look the other way early on. She will never know if getting her sister help back then would have made things turn out any differently, but it would have been worth a try. She is now headed back to that same small town to figure out how to do what should have been done so long ago, and yes, her mother is still in denial and wont discuss it. So, how do you really feel?Your Mind TodayDear Dr Gora, This is in regards to your Column entitled: Trayvon Martin, Meets George Zimmerman. Except in this perpendicular universe, we DO know most of the details of the real meeting. We know that a troubled youth from a broken family (his father was shacking up in Sanford with his latest squeeze while still married to Trayvons stepmom and divorced for 14 years from Trayvons biological mother who couldnt handle his delinquency and sent him to stay with his father who also failed to discipline him) chose to return to and confront a mild-mannered community servant who was trying to keep his neighborhood safe from an almost daily rash of criminal activity, most of it committed by young, black males just like Trayvon. @crankuptheheat @crankuptheheat /crankuptheheat
Edition 1609for news 24/7 go to bocaratontribune.com www.bocaratontribune.comOctober 11, through October 24, 2013 The Boca Raton Tribune 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. People as they Really Are! Going Beyond What The Law Requires bocaratontribune.comIt might appear advantageous for any society if people could be recognized and known as they really are. Nevertheless, that is a practical difficulty. Individuals are in the process of perpetual becoming. Some get worse than they were, though many make a significant effort to be always better today than they were yesterday, and so on! Furthermore, the circumstances of any given moment affect how people will act; the manner one dresses, the location where one is present at a certain time, as well as the nature of any conversation held, brings something different from each person. Not to be forgotten also, when people are in a group they can easily put up fronts and act somewhat differently than they really are most of the time. Even in religious institutions theres an inbuilt proclivity on the part of some to look, act, and appear better than others which, of course, can never happen since theres no human perfection on earth. No one can ever reach that level while in the world; any such attempt is just a fake! It was the ancient, Pre-Socratic philosopher, Heraclitus, who had stated that no person enters the same river twice. Each occasion one descends its banks, the water is new, the gravel at the bottom is different, even the fish will vary. Much more so is the case with human beings. The experiences of each new day affect ones thinking and being; new issues learned and attitudes manifested change continually, causing one to act differently. Personal growth or lack thereof, from one day to another, affect the personal projection of ones self! Nevertheless, however true all that may be, certain features need to remain constant in each individual, regardless of where she or he may be; certain values acquired may be among those things which never change, and continue to affect human behavior in consistent ways. More than anything else, ones identity must be recognizable and a persons genuineness should remain steady, apart from other changes occurring. While much is in flux in every human life, theres also much that does not pass away, and such are the traits which can best point to people as they really are, every moment you encounter each! When you think about the rules and regulations that affect you in the workplace, whether they are broadbased laws that apply to everyone or statutes that were designed specifically for your industry or profession, how do you deal with them? Do you comply only to the minimum extent required, choosing to abide strictly to the letter of the law, or would you consider the sometimes broader spirit of the law the underlying and sometimes more demanding intent behind it? For years I have consulted with business and professional leaders, helping them to grasp and understand biblical principles that apply to the everyday marketplace. When I began doing this, it became evident that to avoid the danger of not practicing what I was teaching, I had to do an honest self-appraisal. This included examining my life for any past issues that I ignored or had not properly resolved. To be honest, doing this can be humbling and uncomfortable, but I felt it was necessary and important for my integrity as a consultant. I became convicted about a small, unpaid corporate debt from a previous business I had owned. Although the financial obligation was corporate, and legally I had no personal responsibility, God made it clear that He wanted all of my business dealings to be beyond reproach. As a result, I tracked down the business that was still owed money by my former company and sent them a check for the proper amount. The owners were more than surprised they were amazed. They called not only to thank me but also to tell me that since the debt had been written off and removed from their financial records, they donated the payment to a local church. Without question, I could have overlooked the unpaid debt. It was a legally constructed corporate entity a business that no longer existed that technically owed the money. Since my personal finances were not involved in any way, legally I had no responsibility. That was what the letter of the law would have said. However, as a follower of Jesus Christ, committed to living and working with integrity, I could not use that excuse. The spirit of the law, I knew, would have said differently. How could I speak with and advise leaders in the workplace about honesty and integrity if I were not willing to hold myself to the same standards? In the Bibles New Testament, Ephesians 5:3 teaches, But immorality or any impurity or greed must not even be named among you, as is proper among saints. Gods standards as He reveals in the Scriptures often exceed the law, but if we are to be effective and credible as His ambassadors, it is essential for us to live accordingly. My purpose is not to put anyone under a guilt trip. However, if God brings to your mind something you have done that should be corrected or something you need to do I urge you to follow through on that as soon as possible. Even if it means going beyond what the law requires. You will not regret it. By Rick BoxxINTEGRETY MOMENTS Copyright 2013, Integrity Resource Center, Inc.

10 -Edition 160 October 11, through October 24, 2013 www.bocaratontribune.comThe Boca Raton Tribune COMMUNITY NEWS When 99-year-old Charlie Brooks attended elementary school, Woodrow Wilson was President of the United States, and World War I was wrapping up. Fast forward to 2013, and Brooks finds himself once again in an elementary school classroom. Only this time, he is part of a one-ofa-kind program that is pairing up our areas youngest with our areas seniors. Sunrise Park Elementary School in Boca Raton has created a unique partnership with a senior living facility that allows seven seniors, age 80 to 99 to work with students in the classroom. The program was inspired by second grade teacher Sarah Lazarus, whose mother is currently in an assisted living facility in Miami. It started as a simple idea a few years ago, and is now a full program for the children. You never would believe how well two people who are almost a century apart in age can relate to one another, and enjoy each others company, Lazarus said. The volunteers help the kids with reading, writing, math and science. And once in a while they can slip in a little history lesson about what the world was like when they were in elementary school. There are so many seniors with valuable experience and knowledge that can be helping to guide, teach and motivate young learners, Principal Alicia Steiger said. Having them volunteer in the school gives the seniors a sense of responsibility, and feeling of being needed, she said. The children love the one on one attention and help they receive from the seniors and the teachers appreciate any extra help they can receive in the classroom. For more information about the program, call Sunrise Park Elementary School at 561.4774300 or e-mail sarah.lazarus@ palmbeachschools.org.Local Elementary Teacher Credited For Program That Helps Seniors,Kids By Bito David The award-winning Boca Raton Community High School Drama Department will open its season with a spectacular production of William Shakespeares most joyful and moving comedy, Much Ado About Nothing.

www.delraybeachtribune.com B4 The Delray Beach Tribune Edition 14The Delray Beach TribuneOctober 2013By Jason Schwartz and Samantha NeeleyDELRAY BEACH After an extensive and competitive bidding for a prime redevelopment site in the core of downtown, iPic Entertainment's proposal for a mixed-use development anchored by an eight screen, 529-seat luxury movie theater, received a unanimous vote by the city's Community Redevelopment Agency recently. "We are excited and honored to be chosen for this unique and one-ofa-kind project and look forward to bringing the revolutionary concept of iPic Theaters to the historic City of Delray Beach," said Hamid Hashemi, president and CEO of iPic Entertainment. Slated to open in 2015, the highend movie theater will develop on the historic Old Delray Library site on Southeast Fourth Street. The project will create more than 400 jobs and attract more than 400,000 visitors to downtown Delray Beach, according to a news release. The new iPic Theaters at the 1.57 acre Fourth and Fifth avenues site will mark iPic's second location in South Florida, joining its flagship Boca Raton location situated at the luxury dining and shopping destination, Mizner Park. City official heralded the move calling it a big deal for the downtown area. This is a prime piece of real estate in our downtown core that has been sitting underutilized and has been slated for redevelopment for about seven years, so its great to finally see some motion on this after the last deal for this property fell through, said Elizabeth Burrows, spokeswoman for the CRA. The second reason, Burrows added, is the proposal from Delray Beach Holdings, LLC will offer varied uses that will benefit the downtown and add to the areas overall offering. Its creating classy office space, which is something that we need downtown Delray Beach and something weve been trying to get more of. Theres demand for it, she said. Were going to be putting more people in our downtown area that means more people with more disposable income to patronize the surrounding merchants, restaurants and everything thats there in our downtown. Delray moviegoers can expect the same level of affordable luxury and a superior movie-going experience as iPic's neighboring site, the release said. The development will boast spectacular architectural features and a mesmerizing atmosphere, along with a living wall and rooftop garden deck, while providing a memorable landmark for the growing downtown area. "iPic destinations go beyond movies," Hashemi said. "Moviegoers escape to where iconic design and contemporary luxury set the stage for an exclusive day or night out." iPic invites guests to enjoy movies in ultimate relaxation and style with the option of Premium or Premium Plus leather seating and iPic's gourmet, chef-driven Tanzy Express. Premium seat ticketholders will relax in large, plush leather seats and may purchase food and beverage from Tanzy Express and carry into the theater to enjoy at their seat. Premium Plus ticketholders enjoy the comfort of the exclusive full-leg reclining seats, pillows and blankets and personal service-call buttons that summon servers to deliver signature dishes or hand-crafted cocktails to their seat from Tanzy Express. iPic Delray will feature eight auditoriums with seating between 40 to 120 in an intimate setting. All auditoriums will be equipped with 4K digital cinema technology. All seats may be reserved ahead of time on iPic's proprietary reservation system by visiting ipic.com or moviegoers can simply download the iPic App to their iPhones or Android for a hasslefree, one-step transaction process.

Thats because the Downtown Development Authority in partnership with SunTrust Bank and the Miami Dolphins offered dozens of reasons to stop working and start celebrating at an appreciation party recently. The SunTrust Bank, 302 E. Atlantic Ave., was transformed from a contemporary business banking facility to a festive space filled with great food and drinks, and a beauty bar section providing makeup and hair sessions along with fashion tips. With over 5,000 employees working in DDA district, it is hard to meet them all and to show our gratitude, said Marjorie Ferrer, DDA executive director. But with the help of SunTrust Bank and the many other partners that are part of this first ever event, we are hopeful that we can at least attempt to thank most of them. The Miami Dolphin Cheerleaders made an exclusive appearance, took photographs with guests and gave away great prizes including tickets to this seasons home games. Delray Subaru provided test drives in their 2013 and 2014 models along with giving all the employees free gifts and an opportunity to win some amazing prizes. One of the highlights was a charity component called Hand Bag it Over for Dress for Success of the Palm Beaches. Attendees were asked to bring a gently used hand bag or briefcase to donate in exchange for a gift certificate from Second Time Around, a local small business in Downtown Delray. After the event, the property owners, sponsors, executives and other guests attended a VIP Reception where they had a chance to a special evening to network and special recognition.DELRAY BEACH In todays economy, it is unusual to find a business that has survived more than three decadesmuch less in the same location. But thats just what the Park Ten Industrial Business Park can boast. Maintaining a business for three decades is a challenging undertaking in any industry and it requires the ability to not only adjust to changes but also to customer needs, said Joseph Carosella, general partner and one of the founders. Founded in 1979 by Carosella, Michael Bianchini, Donald Berlanti, and Richard Berlanti, the business has been in the family for four generations with three generations still actively participating in the business. Park Ten has an impressive list of tenants, some of whom have been with them for decades. One of their tenants, Tamiami Tile, has been in the complex for 32 years. They started with 3,000 square feet and now have 15,000 square feet of space. Another tenant, Orkin, had a structure built for them and has been a tenant for 22 years. Helmet City, a national supplier of lightweight cycle headgear, has been in the Park for 10 years. Park Ten is not only home to established businesses but it is also an incubator for new businesses as well. We are proud to celebrate this milestone in our companys history, said Nichole Carosella, property manager and a real estate broker. It is a testament to our founders and the vision they set into motion more than 34 years ago that weve successfully built upon their strong foundation and heritage of leadership.Park Ten Industrial Business Park Celebrates 34 Years in Delray Beach 2 Local Tenet Hospitals Receive A Safety Ratings in National SurveyBy Jason Schwartz Delray Medical Center and West Boca Medical Center were honored with an A Hospital Safety Score by The Leapfrog Group, hospital officials announced. The A score was awarded in the latest update to the Hospital Safety Score based on preventable medical errors, injuries, accidents and infections. The two local hospitals were among eight Tenet Florida hospitals that earned an A. The others are Coral Gables Hospital, Good Samaritan Medical Center, North Shore Medical Center, Palm Beach Gardens Medical Center, Palmetto General Hospital and St. Marys Medical Center. All of our hospitals are dedicated to delivering safe, quality care, Marsha Powers, senior vice president of operations of the Tenet Florida Region, said in a release. The hard work of all of the staff members, nurses and physicians is being exemplified through this distinguished award, which is grounded in evidencebased quality. The Washington-based Leapfrog Group evaluates hospitals based on data the hospitals file with the federal government as part of its treatment of Medicare patients. Leapfrog also asks hospitals to complete a questionnaire focused on information technology and employee education. Hospitals that earn an A have demonstrated their commitment to their patients and their community, said Leah Binder, president and CEO of The Leapfrog Group. I congratulate these hospitals for their safety excellence, and look forward to the day when all hospitals will match this standard. The Leapfrog Group was formed in the 1990s among employers such as General Motors, FedEx, UPS and Toyota that were concerned that many of their workers were getting hurt in hospitals that were supposed to restore them to health. About 180,000 Americans die each year from preventable hospital errors such as infections. The Hospital Safety Score was compiled under the guidance of the nations leading experts on patient safety and is designed to give the public information they can use to protect themselves and their families.

www.delraybeachtribune.com B6 The Delray Beach Tribune Edition 14The Delray Beach TribuneOctober 2013We all have a wide variety of jobs and gain our skills through formal education, trainings or other sources. The vast majority of the time we place a great deal of value on the sacrifices we make for our employment preparation. So why do so many of us jeopardize or completely give up all that we have worked so hard for in a matter of a moment. Our jobs expose us to people who can sometimes have an impact on how we feel. Those feelings can range from sympathy, anger, jealousy, lust, etc. On almost any day somewhere, someone is allowing their work exposure to jeopardize all that he or she has worked for. We see professionals, to the not so highly trained experiencing the same things. So why is it that some of us can value what we have so much, be it income, family, etc. that we can control getting caught up and so many others cant? We all have days when an employee, supervisor, customer, or co-worker can test your inner control. When a challenging moment occurs at your job, are you quick to think about the consequences of your actions or are you the type of person who throws what you value out of the window and just lets go? If you are the type who just lets go regardless of the consequences, did you really value that which you have just risked losing? I personally have spent many hours talking to men and women who didnt control their emotional moments. Throughout my years as a business owner, I have also dealt with employees of my own who have allowed their emotions to get out of control. They claim to value their career, benefits, and income, yet some of them are so willing to risk it all by just simply losing control. A few years ago I met with a gentleman who was sentenced to classes for domestic violence. His problem began at home when there was an argument with his wife about one of the childrens school issues. The argument at home was not settled before he and his wife left for work and they happened to work in the same building separated by three floors. He explained to me that he had some comments to make to his wife, which he thought would solve the problem at home. What occurred was, his wife rejected is suggestion and embarrassed him in front of co-workers. He reacted by grabbing his wife around her neck which resulted in a domestic violence charge. Because the employer had zero tolerance for any fighting in the workplace, both he and his wife were terminated from their employment and loss all benefits and pensions. Between the two of them they had a combined total of 35 years on the job. Failure begins with you. It will always be your decision on how you respond to something. Dont try to say they made me do it, I dont know what happened, or my all-time favorite I blacked out yeah right! Barring a mental health condition that robs your cognitive control, its all on you. Its time for us to make better choices about behaviors that can cause us to lose the things we care so much about. We must not allow moments on our job to impact our lives negatively. Dont let the anger or frustrations take control. Remember the time, effort and often big bucks that went into our livelihoods. Too many times those livelihoods are lost all because of a moment.By Clay Robinson What Do You Value?Last month we left off considering, praying, and applying four truths about God. Because God has come to rescue and renew us in the person of Jesus Christ, let us now explore these four truths that really are good news. 1. God is greatso I do not have to be in control. 2. God is goodso I do not have to look elsewhere. 3. God is gloriousso I do not have to fear others. 4. God is graciousso I do not have to prove myself. I usually find that when I choose my sin over obedience to Jesus, it is because I have believed a lie about God. So repentance or changing my direction in an area of weakness, is all about believing the truth about God and asking him to bring my life in line with that truth. 1. God is greatso I do not have to be in control. This is such good news to those of us who have a tendency to worry. What this means, is that when I worry I have chosen to believe a lie about God; primarily that he is not as great as he says he is and thus I have to be in control. When Gods Spirit convicts me of my unbelief, I can then turn to God and worship him as being just as great as he describes himself. 2. God is goodso I do not have to look elsewhere. This is such good news to those of us who struggle with lust. Lust for the opposite sex, lust for money, lust for powerwhatever it may be, we have bought a lie. The lie is, God is not good enough in himself so we must look elsewhere. When I realize I have looked elsewhere for what is really good in my life, I can simply turn back to Him and worship Jesus for being my true best and fulfilling treasure. 3. God is gloriousso I do not have to fear others. This is such good news for those of us who struggle with the idol of approval. I do not actually have to live as a co-dependent people pleaser thanks to Jesus. And when I do, it is because I am choosing not to believe that he is truly glorious and putting my faith in the glory of others. Other people have become too big and God has become too small, or else I would have found my identity and worth in Gods acceptance and not need your approval. When I find myself here, God invites me to worship Him as being so glorious, and so satisfied with me because he is so satisfied with Jesus death and resurrection in my place. 4. God is graciousso I do not need to prove myself. This is such good news to those of us who struggle pride. Pride comes in different forms, and one of those forms can be when we think we can earn something from God, rather than just receiving his grace poured out on us through the Jesus. So when I become fearful, weary, and tired from all of my striving and performance-based livingJesus invites me to rest. To quit believing the lie that God is not as gracious as he promises to be, and to begin to worship him as the one who gives grace lavishly to sinners like me. The gospel really is good news. The death and resurrection of Jesus Christ has accomplished far more than we will ever realize for those who follow Him. This is more than just an ambiguous philosophy or feel good motivation idea that does not touch my life. I am indeed one that struggles on a regular basis with all of these things, anxiety, lust, approval, and pride. I find myself more than I would like to think with the RIDsrestless, irritable, and discontent. This is usually where my sin leads me and leaves me. But Jesus. There is good news in Jesus Christ and that is the only thing that ever takes me from where I do not want to into a place where I always want to be. But thanks be to God, who has given us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. 1Cor. 15:57 More Good NewsFAITHBy Casey Cleveland Delray Beach Tribune delraybeachtribune.com

Mr. Gora can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org. Are You Properly Inversted in Your Work?FAITHBy Robert J. Tamasy DIVORCE FLORIDA STYLEBy Mike Gora If you had the opportunity to do anything you wanted to do, and money (financial compensation) was not an issue, would you still do what you are doing right now? When a good friend asked me this question years ago, it caught me by surprise. I paused as I considered how to respond. Finally, I admitted that I would not. I would be doing something different. This conversation started a process that resulted in dramatic career changes that opened doors to opportunities I could never have imagined. So I found it interesting recently when I read a blog post by a writer another friend had recommended. The blogger, Seth Godin, is a marketing consultant, entrepreneur, and public speaker. He cited the importance of making wise, rewarding use of our time, talents and energy, echoing my thoughts years before when I was asked the momentous question. Godin wrote: Every day you invest a little bit of yourself into your work, and one of the biggest choices available to you is where youll be making that investment. That project you are working on or that boss you report to: Is it worth it? Investing in the wrong place for a week or a month will not kill you. But spending 10 years contributing to something you do not care about, or working with someone who does not care about you you can do better. Admittedly, in todays uncertain and often limited employment market, changing jobs is not something to be taken lightly. The adage, a bird in the hand is worth two in the bush, can apply to major career decisions. I have always reasoned it makes sense to find the next job before leaving the last one. However, as Godin pointed out, this does not justify squandering substantial portions of our working life performing functions and carrying out responsibilities that seem pointless or unrewarding. In the organization I work with, we talk with business and professional leaders about pursuing their passion, whether within the context of their work or, if necessary, outside of it. When we have the opportunity to do work and engage in activities we feel passionate about, which also provide personal fulfillment, we find contentment, become more productive, and enjoy life. Contrary to popular notions, work is not a necessary evil. God established work and designated mankind to be caretakers of His creation. In fact, the Bible describes God as a worker. By the seventh day God had finished the work he had been doing; so on the seventh day he rested from all his work. And God blessed the seventh day and made it holy, because on it he rested from all the work of creating that he had done (Genesis 2:2-3). As God did, pursue your passion and then rest. Work, of course, is not easy. But it becomes much easier and more enjoyable with the right motivation. So the Bible says we should ask God to establish the work of our hands for us yes, establish the work of our hands (Psalm 90:17). Ultimately, work is Gods idea, so its best to do what He wants of us and to do it His way.Robert J.

Savings FraudQ: I am a forensic accountant, and recently met with a local divorce lawyer and his client to prepare to file a case against her husband of 18 years. He and his brother own several franchises in a popular chain of restaurants. I explained that their corporation was registered as a Sub-chapter S corporation with the IRS. For income tax purposes, all of the net income of their business is considered personal income, whether or not it is all taken out of the company at the end of the year. Both men own 50 percent of the stock in the corporation, so half of the income winds up in their individual tax returns. According to the corporations tax return, until two years ago the corporation paid the two brothers almost all of the net profit as distributions. The last two years, however, they kept most of the profits in the corporation, as retained earnings. This meant they paid income tax on money they had not personally received, lowering money they had available as personal income, in two ways, as they had to pay income tax on money they never received. The client, according to her attorney, is a good candidate for permanent alimony, and there are 13-year-old twins to be supported. He also tells me that it is unclear whether a Florida court can count the income retained in the corporation as the husbands for alimony and child support. He is of the opinion that the husband and his brother may have been doing some divorce planning, as the brother-in-law is also going through a divorce. Is there any Florida law on this specific subject? A: Yes, but as usual, the bottom line is, It depends. The Florida Supreme Court has given the lower courts directions when faced with the same question. It ruled that the money kept in a Sub-S corporation may or may not be counted as increasing ability to pay alimony and child support, depending on whether there was a legitimate business reason to retain the earnings in the corporation. If the wifes counsel proves to the trial judge that the money was kept in the corporation for the purpose of defeating alimony and child support, and not for a legitimate business purpose, it can be considered as income. The court also ruled that the burden of proof was on the person in charge of the corporation to prove that he, or she, kept the money in the corporation for legitimate business purposes, and not to harm the spouse. In this case, history might help your client, if as you say; the retained earnings were greatly increased only when the two stockholders were contemplating divorce. On the other hand, if there was a plan to use the retained earnings to buy more franchises that had just become available, a judge might consider that as proof of good motive. If you testify that there was no good business reason to retain the amount of money kept in the corporation, you can bet that the husbands forensic accountant will disagree with you. If the case goes to trial, the judge will have to decide between your two positions.

Edition 16025for news 24/7 go to bocaratontribune.com www.bocaratontribune.comOctober 11, through October 24, 2013Business NewsDemagogy and Socialism CARLO BARBIERIBy Carlo Barbieri In very few countries, the high demagogy cost of the arrogant socialists can be observed so explicitly like here in the USA. Being a country in which there is a great deal of respect for the Member States autonomy and independence, we could realize that, in this recent crisis between freedom of initiative and governmental interventionism, the onuses of demagogy attempting to implement a socialism that cannibalizes the productive resources to serve perks to the governmental bureaucracy. Let us take Florida, for instance. Certainly, it has been one of the most affected states by the economical crisis. No hurricane has ever been so devastating to this state as the crisis of 2008, in particular to the real estate segment, making millions of people in the field simply jobless. Property prices simply collapsed and, in some cases, they turned out to reach down to half construction cost. This fact, in addition to the undocumented immigrant persecution, who, back then, were not even allowed to drive any longer, have led millions of them to return to their origin countries, as it was the case with over 100,000 Brazilians who simply returned to their tropical country. On the other hand, let us see Detroit, the elite of American cities. Back in the 1950s, the city had one million and eight hundred thousand inhabitants, one of the highest income rates per capita of the country. Today, Detroit is legally in bankruptcy, it cannot afford to pay its debts. It has fewer than 700,000 inhabitants and its unemployment rate is around 20%. Only 10% of crimes are solved and it corresponds to one third of American per capita income currently. This city has received billions of dollars from the federal government after the local automobile industry was able to save and generate jobs. But the unemployment rate is still on the rise. Corruption and literal thefts by mayors emptied the public coffers and the state now owes about 20 billion dollars. The pension, retirement, health insurance and life funds from federal employees as well as generalized corruption are responsible for such calamity. Great factories left the city gradually as they were not profitable or productive due the high operational costs imposed by the labor unions. From all automobile industries, GM is the only one that is still there. Definitely the socialist experience, labor parties, the demagogic domain of political management by one ethnic group only as well as the endemic corruption destroyed the city and provided no possibility for any turnaround. Let us go back to Florida. After such shock Florida has shone again. Civil Construction is back on track. Real Estate prices are on the rise reaching two digits annually over the last couple years. But the job politics does not affect the Real Estate business only. Let us take into account a State which has no mandatory-paid vacation there is no punishment for laying off employees without any reason, there is no such 13th salary, no state income tax for private individuals, it has a great deal of respect for private property whose owners have their assets very well protected. In Florida, an invasion to any piece of property entitles the owners to shoot the intruder without giving the police a chance to press any charges against them. There are over 24,500 companies dedicated to high technology, generating about 300,000 jobs for very high-qualified people. This freedom to hire at the States discretion has turned Florida into the 3rd greatest American State in Cutting-edge technology. Segments of the so-called New Economy` such as Aviation and Aerospace, Information Technology, Training Technology, Simulations and Modeling, Natural Sciences and Security and Domestic Defense have found their natural habitat in Florida. This free-initiative environment has allowed Florida to be the spotlight for the `Business National Center`. Government incentives have been significantly used to generate jobs, investment and training. The public red tape, not the jobs, is reduced each and every day. Licensing and documentation have been accelerated. In doing so, Florida has become the 4th economical power in the USA (next year it must go up to 3rd in the rank) and the greatest hostess of internal migration in the country. The fallacious argument in which demagogy guarantees job security, initiatives that have led Michigan to have an experience of labor union as well as the American socialism has simply failed, bringing its economy to a halt, preventing any reaction to crisis. More than that, they have led people away from Detroit as well their industries to look for other spots within the American land or even abroad, where they could operate more freely without the financial infliction by the social demagogy of the labor unions. Even though the crowned king` may not agree, the American economy power has its foundation on the basis of respect and support of the free initiatives and not of the demagogical socialism.

ESPN Announces Creation of Boca Raton BowlBy Chad Beattie BOCA RATON, Fla. Lynn Universitys mens soccer team recorded an offensive explosion it hadnt seen in four years by downing Eckerd 7-0 on Wednesday afternoon. Yannick Braeuer notched his first career multigoal game and turned in a careerbest five points while his fellow countryman, Simon Gubisch, added a goal and two assists. The Fighting Knights improve to 6-41 overall and 3-1-0 in the Sunshine State Conference. This win marks the largest margin of victory against Eckerd (3-7-2, 1-2-0 SSC) since 2000 and tied for the second largest in program history. The Blue & White last scored seven goals overall in a match on October 7, 2009 in a 7-0 win against Johnson & Wales. Braeuer, from Hamberg, Germany, helped his team get on the board in the 13th minute of play when he took a pass from Gubisch, of Stuttgart, Germany, near the top-left corner of the 18-yard box. A quick spin move shook off his defender and Braeuer switched feet to fire a shot towards the upper right corner for the goal. Lynns offense looked to hit a stalemate until an Eckerd mistake in the midfield during the 35th minute freed up Gubisch on the left wing. The graduate midfielder raced towards goal and ripped a low line drive across the field and inside the right post to put LU on top 2-0. Michael ONeill didnt need long after that to make it a 3-0 game, scoring nearly two minutes later. The central midfielder played giveand-go with Braeuer 30-yards out on the right sideline and ONeill did not bypass his chance on a shot, serving one up past the diving Tritons keeper for his third goal of the year. Just as he did to start the game, Braeuer led off the second half with a bang goal to give Lynn a 4-0 lead. Keeper Kevin Shields started the play with a long kick off the pitch to the Tritons third of the field where Gubisch served a cross towards the middle of the box. Braeuer volleyed the ball past Toni Virtanen for his seventh career goal. Lynns offense was just opening up. Freshman Chris Hellman logged his first career point in the 55th minute when his corner kick from the right flag sailed off the head of Javier Mochon at the left post. Mochon leads the Fighting Knights with five goals and 11 points. Hellman later added his first career goal in the 82nd minute. The German forward stood over a free kick from 25-yards out and knocked a brilliant attempt over the wall and inside the left post to make it 6-0. Isaac Hamui and Chris Klarner hooked up for the final score in the 88th minute of play. Klarner beat his man on the left wing and sent in a textbook cross over the keeper and defender. Hamui found himself in the perfect place at the right time for the open-net strike. Kevin Shields had two saves on the day but Lynns defense did an outstanding job of keeping the Tritons away from its third of the field. LU outshot EC 24-3 and held an astounding 9-2 advantage in corner kicks.Tri-ton as it Might, Eckerd Cant Stop Lynn Mens Soccer

Paige Meggison followed the shot for an easy stab into the goal. Lynn kept up the pressure and were compensated with a second goal four minutes later.
