By CRA News Service John Kelly, a vice president at Clemson University, has been selected to lead Florida Atlantic University as its seventh president. The Board of Trustees selected Kelly, 59, over two other finalists, Christopher Earley, dean of the Krannert School of Management at Purdue University in Indiana and former U.S. Sen. George LeMieux who also was former chief of staff to Gov. Charlie Crist. Kelly succeeds Mary Jane Saunders, who stepped down as the universitys president in May 2013. I am privileged to have been selected as the next president of FAU, said Kelly, who holds a doctorate degree and was in charge of economic development at the South Carolina school. It was a long and open process, and I am honored that the Board of Trustees unanimously chose me to lead FAU. The trustees eliminated Earley prior to the ultimate selection. While the final vote was unanimous, an informal poll taken showed Kelly with a slight edge over LeMieux by a margin of 8-5. Today marks a great day in the history of FAU, said Anthony Barbar, chair of FAUs Board of Trustees. We are proud of our selection of Dr. Kelly as our leader, and we are confident that his vision will guide FAU to its next level of greatness. Kelly said he was impressed by what he saw during his visit to FAUs campuses especially the Jupiter campus, which houses biotech researchers Scripps Florida and the Max Planck Florida Institute. No one else in the country has that, he said. These are incredible assets that are somewhat hidden from a national audience. I am ready to roll up my sleeves and go to work.

Edition 1703for news 24/7 go to January 24, through January 30, 2014 Community News Community NewsThe Boca Raton Tribune By CRA News Service John Kelly, a vice president at Clemson University, has been selected to lead Florida Atlantic University as its seventh president. The Board of Trustees selected Kelly, 59, over two other finalists, Christopher Earley, dean of the Krannert School of Management at Purdue University in Indiana and former U.S. Sen. George LeMieux who also was former chief of staff to Gov. Charlie Crist. Kelly succeeds Mary Jane Saunders, who stepped down as the universitys president in May 2013. I am privileged to have been selected as the next president of FAU, said Kelly, who holds a doctorate degree and was in charge of economic development at the South Carolina school. It was a long and open process, and I am honored that the Board of Trustees unanimously chose me to lead FAU. The trustees eliminated Earley prior to the ultimate selection. While the final vote was unanimous, an informal poll taken showed Kelly with a slight edge over LeMieux by a margin of 8-5. Today marks a great day in the history of FAU, said Anthony Barbar, chair of FAUs Board of Trustees. We are proud of our selection of Dr. Kelly as our leader, and we are confident that his vision will guide FAU to its next level of greatness. Kelly said he was impressed by what he saw during his visit to FAUs campuses especially the Jupiter campus, which houses biotech researchers Scripps Florida and the Max Planck Florida Institute. No one else in the country has that, he said. These are incredible assets that are somewhat hidden from a national audience. I am ready to roll up my sleeves and go to work. He also met with students and faculty. The South Carolina native, who has been at Clemson since 1985, was responsible for developing and implementing university policy, strategic planning, hiring strategies, communication and budgeting. He manages a $90 million budget with more than 900 employees, according to his Clemson biography. He said hes helped the university raise $750 million as part of its current $1 billion capital campaign. Clemson has the fourthhighest rate of alumni giving in the country; FAU has the lowest in Florida, at 1 percent. He has a similar plan for FAU: learn about the universitys culture and reach out to alumni to get them re-engaged in the university community. I want to get to know your people. I want to immerse myself in FAU, he said. I want to heal those broken relationships that the institution has. We need to be [making] friends constantly, not losing them. Since January 2007, Kelly has served as executive director of the Clemson University Restoration Institute, where university officials said he built a team to educate students and direct research in energy systems. He also had overall responsibility for the public service mission of the university and served as the state of South Carolina agency head of Clemson University Public Service Activities, including the S.C. Experiment Station, Clemson University Cooperative Extension Service, Regulatory Services and Livestock Poultry Health, with programs in 46 counties. Kelly impressed trustees after he said he would push aggressively to improve FAUs academic standing. He said the university needs to think bigger and he wants to take advantage of communications, compete globally and recruit outof-state students. If we complete globally, we automatically compete locally, he told the trustees. When you have a national reputation, more financial resources are going to come. Students from other states will all want to come to Boca. Kelly said he helped Clemson boost its academic standing, where its now ranked the 21st best public university in the country, according to U.S. News & World Report. He also said the university this year received 19,000 applications for 3,200 spots. The board expressed concerns that Kelly did not have strong ties to Tallahassee, but ultimately seemed confident he could get the university back to where it needs to be. One board member said Kellys next trip needs to be in Tallahassee. He needs to shake hands, kiss babies and get us money, the board member continued. But several board members said they are confident he can steer the university in the right direction as he has a vibe that made you like him right away. LeMieux, who is chairman of the board of the Gunster law firm, turned out to be the second candidate with strong political ties to lose out on his bid for the post. A week earlier a search committee eliminated Chief Financial Officer Jeff Atwater from consideration. Atwater, a Republican, was cruising to an easy re-election when he decided to become a candidate for the job in early January. But after the surprising vote he was forced to quickly announce he would seek a second term after all. If Atwater had gotten the FAU job it would have triggered jockeying among both political parties. Many trustees cited LeMieuxs political connections and his longstanding ties to South Florida as an asset that could help FAU compete against some of the states more high-profile universities. During his final interview LeMieux was forced to answer questions about his relationship with former Gov. Charlie Crist. LeMieux was chief of staff for Crist, but did not back the governor when he switched parties and ran for the U.S. Senate as an independent in 2010. LeMieux is backing Gov. Rick Scott for reelection over Crist. LeMieux insisted, however, that he still had a good personal relationship with Crist despite their political falling out. FAU has been without a permanent president since Saunders resigned after a problematic year where she was accused of hitting a student protester with her car. The university also became well known when a communications professor, James Tracy, called the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting a hoax and when another, Deandre Poole, instructed students to stomp on Jesus as part of a classroom exercise. FAU has had four presidents in 12 years, and some faculty have complained that the frequent turnover has been unsettling.FAU Taps Clemsons Executive as its Seventh President


4 -Edition 170 January 24, through January 30, 2014 www.bocaratontribune.comCommunity News Come join us for a night of fellowship, music, fun, and life changing study as we go through Jefferson Bethkes new book, From 7pm9pm Want to do something different with your Thursdsay nights? Boc a Gla des Ba ptist Churc h10101 J udg e W inik off Rd, Boc a R a ton, FL 33428 Florida Atlantic Universitys Christine E. Lynn College of Nursing announced today that it has been selected as one of 52 schools to receive grant funding from the prestigious Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) New Careers in Nursing Scholarship Program (NCIN). During the 2013-2014 academic year, the College will receive $50,000 to support students in the schools baccalaureate program who are traditionally underrepresented in the field of nursing. NCIN is a program of RWJF and the American Association of Colleges of Nursing (AACN). At this time when the nations need for highly educated nurses is growing, we are delighted to be able to support nursing students who will bring diverse and valuable perspectives to the field, and become capable, culturally-competent nurses, said David Krol, MD, MPH, FAAP, RWJF senior program officer. NCIN is not only helping these students succeed in school, it is helping prepare the nursing workforce to meet the challenges that lie ahead. Each NCIN Scholar has already earned a bachelors degree in another field and is making a career switch to nursing through an accelerated BSN program that is completed in 12-18 months. On program completion, these students are eligible for licensure as a registered nurse. Five students at FAUs College of Nursing will be awarded $10,000 scholarships. Since 2008, the NCIN program has distributed 3,117 scholarships to students at 125 unique schools of nursing. This year, funding for 400 scholarships was granted to 52 schools of nursing. FAUs College of Nursing Dean Marlaine Smith, RN, PhD, AHNBC, FAAN, explained, These scholarships will help students from underrepresented groups realize their dream of becoming a nurse in 15 months. This will bring greater diversity into the nursing workforce in a shorter period of time. This is important to meet the healthcare needs of the diverse population of South Florida. In addition to a $10,000 scholarship, NCIN scholars receive other support to help them meet the demands of an accelerated degree program. All NCIN grantee schools maintain a leadership program and a mentoring program for their scholars, as well as a pre-entry immersion program to help scholars learn study, test-taking, and other skills that will help them manage the challenges of an accelerated program. NCIN is strengthening nursing education and creating a culture of change at schools of nursing across the country, said AACN President Jane Kirschling, PhD, RN, FAAN. Our grantee schools are committed to enrolling students traditionally underrepresented in nursing, and students are benefiting from the emphasis on mentoring and leadership development that are hallmarks of the NCIN program. AACN is proud to collaborate with RWJF on this ground-breaking effort. The 2010 Institute of Medicine (IOM) report, The Future of Nursing: Leading Change, Advancing Health recommends increasing the proportion of nurses with a baccalaureate degree or higher, and increasing the diversity of students to create a nursing workforce prepared to meet the health care demands of diverse populations across the lifespan. NCIN is helping to advance those recommendations, enabling schools to expand student capacity in higher education, and encouraging more diversity. By bringing more nurses into the profession at the baccalaureate and masters degree levels, the NCIN program also helps to address the nations nurse faculty shortage. This trend is reflected in the NCIN scholars, as 91 percent of the students receiving funding in the first three years of the program indicate a desire to advance their education to the masters and doctoral levels.FAUs Christine E.

8 -Edition 170 January 24, through January 30, 2014 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 Online Edition Editor Social Media Software Engineer address. to the editor.Letter Guidelines Letters to the EditorEditors note: Charlene Farrington, Director of the Spady Cultural Museum in Delray Beach, recently delivered the below message at a Dr. MLK observance in the city. By Charlene Farrington The theme of this years Dr. MLK Memorial service is Keep the Dream Alive and by now even the youngest among us have heard some, if not all, of what Dr. Kings dream is. Because we are being asked to keep the dream alive, it is probably prudent for us to review the dream so can be sure we are all working toward the same goal. In preparation for todays event, I pulled out my copy of Dr. Kings iconic I Have a Dream speech and read through it yet again. Like the Holy Bible, with each reading new truths and clearer understanding is revealed and I am inspired all over again based on where I am in my own personal growth at that moment. So I read through and pulled out just a few key points: Dr. King starts his speech by giving honor to the American president who signed the emancipation proclamation and we all know who that is President Abraham Lincoln. Dr. King rightly stated that the signing of the document was a light of hope to the Negro slaves (we were called Negros back then) because he knew, like we know, that the signing of that document did not FREE the slaves. It was just one step in an on-going process to undo some of the damage done to the Negro people by the devastating and lifealtering (but not new to the human race) interruption of life called slavery. Dr. King goes on to say that 100 years later, which was when he wrote his speech, the Negro is still not free. It is now 50 years after Dr. King wrote this speech and today we are called African Americans. So the question is, is the African American free yet? In the speech, Dr. King describes the freedom we are seeking. He mentions the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence and repeats these words specifically all men-yes black men as well as white men-would be guaranteed the unalienable rights of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Then, he explains that just because Negros are no longer physically restrained and forced to work for no pay does not mean our lives are no longer threatened, that we are able to act and speak freely, and that we are able to follow our passions and fulfill our dreams. Because as one tool or mechanism of discrimination is dismantled, other forms take its place. So, in his speech, Dr. King states, is not an end but a beginning. Those who hope that the Negro needed to blow off steam and will now be content will have a rude awakening if the nation returns to business as usual. It is our job to make sure this nation does not slip back into business as usual. We must keep the dream alive. Dr. King goes on to give us some guidance on how to go about keeping the dream alive. He warns us, we must forever conduct our struggle on the high plane of dignity and discipline. That means, we cant resort to violence which would be the easy way out and we cant just do nothing. And then, embedded in the heart of Dr. Kings speech is more guidance, we cannot walk alone; we must pledge that we will always march ahead; we cannot turn back. So why are we here today? We are here to keep the dream alive. The dream is a United States of America where African Americans are free to buy tea and candy from a local store and walk home without being confronted by hate and losing their life; where little girls are free to go to school with their hair combed out naturally and not be sent home and told their hairstyle is a distraction; where African Americans can vote for candidates of their choice and feel confident their votes will be counted and not lost or thrown out on an ever changing technicality. As long as things like this are still happening to people in the United States, and not just to African American people either, then the dream has not yet been realized and we have to march ahead but we cannot walk alone and we cannot turn back. I consider it an honor to join with you to keep the dream alive.Is Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.s dream being kept alive? bocaratontribune .com


Edition 1709for news 24/7 go to January 24, through January 30, 2014 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. A Smile for Every Occasion! Compensation and Restitution bocaratontribune.comA human smile is one of the most significant components of any life. It requires the use of less muscles than a frown would demand. Furthermore, it manifests a balanced individual and it positively affects the environment where it is displayed. Many years ago I wrote an article entitled, Miles of Smiles indicating that every individual should have an abundant supply of smiles within, to be meaningfully utilized at all times, especially in human interactions, where others can benefit from the sound posture we wish to display. Indeed, smiling faces meaningfully impact the entire milieu which they occupy be it at home, in the neighborhood, at the work place, and even in places where one is unknown, but where it can be noticed by others and several can benefit from it. A smile is not synonymous with laughter, though they are related. Neither is it the opposite of tears. Ive seen people smile through tears, especially tears of joy which spring after a special announcement, or on account of a lovely experience. Never forget that a smile is often a great accompaniment to a personal greeting. One can say hello to another without it, but when the smile is present it helps bring some tranquility to any environment where it is shared. Those who receive a greeting with a smile feel affirmed and, for that reason, feel good also! Furthermore, they are also more prone to do it themselves, toward others! Just as cries respond to varied situations, such as disappointing news received, personal losses, a physical or emotional hurt experienced, besides countless other reasons a smile also is often provoked by varied factors in ones daily routine. I suggest that one utilize the most appropriate smile that a specific occasion or situation may ask, and that it be avoided in moments when it would be totally inappropriate to display it. Have one when you reencounter a long-unseen friend, a different one manifesting satisfaction for good news received, or while commenting the delights of a great meal just finished, and so forth. In your dealings with other people recognize the signs pointing to a variety of situations when a smile can help and heal. Choose your smiles cautiously so they can surely provide a soothing effect which others around will benefit, and most especially the one individual whose life you wish to impact! Just carry with you always an adequate supply of smiles for every occasion! Some time ago, my wife, Kathy, and I received a surprising offer of financial compensation from a major chemical manufacturer for damage one of its products did to our pine trees. Their settlement offer not only compensated us for actual losses, but also included an additional 15 percent for restitution. With this gesture, which the company had no legal obligation to do, they were demonstrating a willingness to go beyond the cost of replacing our trees. They were acknowledging the problem might have caused a measure of personal hardship and distress for us, and were offering to make amends through additional compensation. I have no way of knowing what process this internationally known company utilized for determining what their settlement offer should be, but I do know where their underlying concept for providing restitution originated: The Bible. The Old Testament of the Bible teaches, When a man or woman commits any of the sins of mankind then he shall confess his sins which he has committed, and he shall make restitution in full for his wrong and add to it one-fifth of it, and give it to him whom he has wronged (Numbers 5:6-7). There are two principles included in this admonition: First, when a wrong is committed and someone suffers a financial or material loss, the offender should be required to compensate the victim for the amount of loss. Second, damages may exceed the actual monetary value of the loss. If so, then additional compensation should be made to make amends. In society today, we often see companies seeking to get by with what they perceive as the bare minimum, both in terms of quality and customer service. So it was refreshing to encounter an example of a corporation committed to going beyond what they are required or even expected to do. In His so-called Sermon on the Mount, Jesus told His followers how they should properly respond to their enemies. But the principles He gave are applicable as well for businesses wanting to ensure that their customers do not become enemies or adversaries: And if someone wants to sue you and take your tunic, give him your cloak as well. If someone forces you to go one mile, go with him two miles (Matthew 5:40-41). So I would suggest that if you discover you have wronged someone even if the act was completely unintentional and you truly want to make amends, consider adding to the amount of actual damages an additional amount for restitution. No one can ever fault you for resolving to do more than they could reasonably expect of you. I have seen more than one example of companies, with an earnest effort to serve and satisfy a customer for a wrong they have committed, not only salvaging the customers repeat business but also seeing business increase because of their commitment to doing the right thing.

Edition 17011for news 24/7 go to January 24, through January 30, 2014Municipal NewsThe Boca Raton Tribune Burglar caught red handedBoca Raton, FL On Wednesday, January 15, at about 1:35 p.m., Boca Raton Police officers responded to a report of a residential burglary that was in progress in the 1000 block of West Camino Real. The resident told officers that she left her home at about 12:10 p.m. and when she returned home, she was unable to open her front door. She believed someone was inside the home holding the door shut. As the resident backed away from the front door, she saw a broken window on the side of her home and a bicycle seemingly abandoned in the neighbors yard. She called 911 and when responding officers checked the victims home, they discovered blood on the front door, near the broken window and on a folder in the home. A Tactical Team officer saw a male, later identified as Marcus Hunter, on the sidewalk about a half mile from the burglary. Hunter was looking around suspiciously, so the officer stopped to speak with him. The officer asked Hunter for identification and as Hunter began removing items from his pockets, the officer saw a debit card with the name Gayle, on it. Hunter told the officer he did not know the owner of the card. The officer also noticed that Hunters hand was bleeding, and he had leaf litter and grass on his shirt. The officer was told the burglary victims name was Gayle and several debit cards were missing from her home. When officers questioned Hunter, he admitted to burglarizing the home. Officers arrested Hunter and charged him with burglary to a structure. When officers searched Hunter, they discovered several other debit cards and miscellaneous paperwork belonging to the victim. On Thursday, January 9, a male entered St Moritz Jewelry Store, 21310 St. Andrews Boulevard at about 1:30 p.m., and stole an engagement ring and tennis bracelet. The theft was caught on video. On Thursday, January 16, a warrant for a home invasion robbery case was executed in unincorporated Boca Raton. Nicholas Maida was arrested for that crime. Maida not only matched the description of the suspect in the jewelry theft, but a detective recognized Maida as the offender of another jewelry store theft. The previous theft occurred in 2008 at another jewelry store in the same area and the jewelry was taken in same manner. When questioned by detectives Maida said, There is a lot of people who look like me. One detective recalled that when Maida was arrested for the 2008 jewelry theft, he told detectives the very same thing. Detectives met with Maidas father and Maidas girlfriend, both who identified Nicholas as the person seen in the St. Mortitz video of the theft. Detectives charged Maida with grand theft. bocaratontribune.comBy Jason SchwartzA Palm Beach County judge has sentenced a 49-year-old Boca Raton real estate agent to 13 years in prison for coercing two teens into letting him take explicit photos of them and having sex with them. Gary Jay Goldberg, who also is a former Palm Beach County Sheriffs Office patrol volunteer, pleaded guilty to enticing a minor to engage in an unlawful sex act. He also admitted that he performed oral sex on the 15-year-old in a gas station restroom on Glades Road. He faced 10 years to life in prison. The act that I did commit was unconscionable, the father of three said, apologizing to the victims and their families. Assistant Federal Public Defender Neison Marks told the judge that Goldberg became addicted to pain pills and was depressed after a car crash. U.S. District Judge Kenneth Marra told Goldberg his crimes were serious and troubling. Goldberg was terminated from his volunteer role as a Palm Beach County Sheriffs Officer rover on Feb. 12, after the criminal investigation began last year, a Sheriffs Office spokeswoman said. Rovers patrol unincorporated areas of the county, help motorists in distress and conduct directed patrols in identified crime areas, according to the Sheriffs Office. The investigation began in January 2013 when the 17-yearolds parents told local authorities about inappropriate texts on her phone. Investigators found evidence of Goldbergs actions lewd photos on computer equipment seized from his office, text messages, surveillance video from his office and the gas station, that corroborated the girls account. The case was part of Project Safe Childhood, a nationwide initiative to combat the growing epidemic of child sexual exploitation and abuse launched in May 2006 by the Department of Justice, according to a news release issued by the Department of Justice. The 17-year-olds parents told the judge that Goldberg told their daughter he did patrols for the Sheriffs Office to help win her trust. The mother said Goldbergs conduct was the calculated activity of an abuser. In addition to the 13-year prison term, Goldberg must serve 25 years of supervised release, register as a sex offender and have no unsupervised contact with minors.Boca Raton real estate agent sentenced to 13 years for having sex with teens Boca Raton girl reported missing from her home has been foundBy CRA News ServiceA 17-year-old Boca Raton girl who went missing Friday night has been found, the Palm Beach County Sheriffs Office said Monday.

Susan Tedeschi and Derek Trucks and their Tedeschi Trucks Band were the headliners once again, and this time some truly legendary musicians accepted the invitation. To anyone who has ever played bass, Stanley Clarke is an idol. For his first time in Boca Raton he proved what can be accomplished on four strings. Oklahoma-born Leon Russell was known first as a Los Angeles session musician and songwriter of such gems as Delta Lady, Superstar and A Song for You. Delta Lady became a big hit for Joe Cocker, who joined Russell for a Mad Dogs and Englishmen world tour in 1970. Russells musical chops are as strong as ever, as is his twangy singing voice. JJ Grey hails from Jacksonville, Florida where he fronts a popular swamp rock group call Mofro. For his Boca Raton debut Grey went solo. His loyal fans knew all the words to his songs and sang along. Hot Tuna is a duo comprised of bassist Jack Casady and guitarist Jorma Kaukonen, who were core members of the Grateful Dead. Hot Tuna also went acoustic for an intimate set. Galactic is a big funk band from New Orleans with horns, two keyboards and a new singer named Maggie, who wowed the crowd. The finale was the Tedeschi Trucks Band, complete with Hammond organ and three backup singers. Lead singer Susan Tedeschi fronted her own band before she met guitarist Derek Trucks, who is now her husband. Trucks began jamming with his Uncle Butch Trucks Band, the Allman Brothers, when he was a young teenager. He has developed into a worldclass musician (he has toured with Eric Clapton) and a master of the Gibson SG guitar, both fingerpicked and with glass slide. Several of the musicians, including Louisiana favorite son Tab Benoit, migrated over to the Funky Biscuit for a lively postconcert jam. For one outstanding weekend, the blues was king in Boca Raton.

Weisman Art Foundation, up through April 23. Co-curated by the Museums Kelli Bodle, Futurism was created largely by Steve Acunto, Honorary Vice Consul for Italy in New York. The works, represent seven Italian artists from the innovative first wave 1908-1919 and second wave 1920s and 1930s of a movement dubbed Futurism. These paintings, drawings performances and poetry seem surprisingly bright and contemporary. They are all a part of the Collection of Steve and Carole Acunto. Steve Acunto was instrumental in making this exhibit possible for us, said Bodle on opening night. He put a lot of work into it. I feel it is quite a coup for the Boca Museum. Pop Culture, which was gleaned from the Frederick R. Weisman Foundation, features such familiar brand names as Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein, James Rosenquist, Keith Haring, Edward Rucha, as well as lesser-known artists from artists of the 1950s and 1960s who celebrated rather than disdained the kitschy, clichd and commercial elements of mass culture and consumerism. More than 100 works fill the museums first floor galleries. Boca Raton Museum of Art is hosting fund-raising fun event, A Night to Remember, from 5:30-9 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 26 aboard the Lady Atlantic, which is berthed at 801 E. Atlantic Ave., Delray Beach.

PAGE 15 Edition 170B3Section B January 24, through January 30, 2014 Tonys Tips For Success Tony Hall Personally for me, I plan on 2014 being a record breaking year! I plan on shattering and demolishing my 2013 goals. The first step to doing that is taking my dreams in my head and writing them down on paper. The amazing thing about being a Martial Arts Athlete is we always have new Goals to strive for such as stripes, belts, titles and much, much ,more! When you continue to have victories it will fuel your future success! So how do we plan our goals? How do we turn our dreams into reality? Step 1: Sit Down with a pen and paper. Write them down! When you have Clarity of Goals it will turn into Clarity of Actions! Step 2: Follow the acronym S.M.A.R.T. for setting Goals. Set SMART GOALS! Specific: To set a specific goal is there the real planning takes place. Lets say your goal is I want to lose weight in 2014! Well that is too generic and too broad of a statement. Why do you want to lose weight? How much weight do you want to lose? When do you want to lose it by? What is involved in losing weight? Where are you going to go to lose it? Who is going to be my support team? Measurable: Make sure what ever the goal is that it is something you can measure. Losing weight is easy because you can track your weight and measure your body size. Some goals can be a little bit harder to measure, such as promotions at work or finding a new person in your life. Just be sure to ask yourself these questions. How Much? How Many? How will I know when I have accomplished it? Attainable: Any goal can be attainable when you set the proper steps before it, follow through with those steps and move on the the next. There was a point when goals seemed so far away, but you grew and learned from each step before it to achieve it. Realistic: This does not mean dont try because you will never achieve it! We would never have landed on the moon if we said, That is an unrealistic goal! Just make sure the sets and objective that you are willing and able to work. If I want a new car, but I am not willing or able to make the sacrifices needed to pay off current debt or make time to work more, then that would be an unrealistic goal. Timely: Set a time frame for your goal. Be specific. The more specific the better. If I said I want to be debt free in 2014, you would look at me like, OK Tony, I believe you. Now if I said, I want to be debt free by my anniversary October 18th, 2014, I have a lot more conviction and an actual goal date to achieve! Which sounds more convincing? Now that you know the formula for SMART goal setting. Sit down with that pen and put it down on paper. Then put it somewhere where you will see it everyday!

Edition 17019for news 24/7 go to January 24, through January 30, 2014Real EstateThe Boca Raton Tribune Last week we laid the foundation for creating a budget in order to buy a home. Now that you set your goals, estimated your income, and analyzed your spending, lets jump right into the next step. Step 4: Planning Your Future Spending (Creating Your Budget): The purpose of analyzing your current spending is so you can create your future budget. By doing so, it will help you figure out if you are spending your money wisely or just throwing it away. Here is an easy way to figure out your budget. Grab a blank piece of paper and fold into 4 squares. Label the top 2 squares Fixed and Flexible. In the Fixed box write down items you cant go without such as rent, car insurance, medical insurance, etc. Under the next box labeled Flexible write down items you can either cutback on or stop buying such as eating out, trips to the coffee shop, cigarettes, etc. Now label the bottom 2 boxes as such: Label the bottom left box Negotiate Better Price and the bottom right box label as Cutting Back/Cutting Out. In the Negotiate Better Price area, write down the things you can call about to try reducing costs. For example, call your car insurance company to see about any discounts. If they say no then call around to get different quotes. Yes this may take a few minutes to do but can save you hundreds of $$ in the long run. Go through each item to see what you can reduce. Always remember be respectful to those on the other end of the phone or across the counter trying to help you. In the last box labeled Cut back/Cutting Out write down a plan for each item you wrote down in the box above that. For instance, one thing I noticed I was spending too much money on was Coffee. I was going to buy coffee out 5 times a week which was costing me about $20 per week = $80 per month =$960 per year. That is a lot of money over time that is wasted!! I put a plan down to help save me money over the long run. I decided to only have coffee out once per week at a different location and make the rest at home. By having a plan it is saving me $762 per year, and that is just one of the items I analyzed. Ask yourself how much of the money you spend is for necessities and where you can cutback in order to increase the amount you are able to save. You will be surprised how much you can save. I know I did! When you get done with this step, I would love to hear back from you. Let me know if this helped you as much as it helped me.

It is being reported that nearly HALF of STATES ARE WITHIN REACH of PEAK HOME PRICES from before the housing down turn. They report that 23 states, almost half the states, are within 10 percent of their 2006 home price peaks as of the October data. The five states with the highest year over year appreciation were Nevada, California, Georgia, Michigan and Arizona, with values rising from almost 26% to 14% respectively. In all, there were 16 States reported to be within 5% of their 2006 peak values. They were Arkansas, Colorado, District of Columbia, Iowa, Louisiana, Nebraska, Montana, New York, North Dakota, Oklahoma, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Vermont, Wyoming, and Alaska. Almost half the states were reported to be within 10% of their peak 2006 prices. Heres the kicker though: They listed the five states that remained the furthest from their peak values prior to the housing turndown and Florida was second on the list as of October, remaining -37.4% off its peak from 2006. This distance is only surpassed by the state of Nevada which was -40.7% off its 2006 peak. The five states furthest from their peak in order as of October were: What does all this mean? For me it means there is still plenty of upside potential as the economy continues to improve and local housing inventory remains low.

Edition 17021for news 24/7 go to January 24, through January 30, 2014 ColumnistsThe Boca Raton Tribune Michael H. Gora has been certified by the Board of Education and Specialization of The Florida Bar as a specialist in family and matrimonial law and is a partner with Shapiro Blasi Wasserman & Gora P.A. in Boca Raton. Mr. Gora can be reached at When The Dicult Way is the EasiestFAITHBy Robert J. Tamasy DIVORCE FLORIDA STYLEBy Mike Gora Something about the human psyche prefers the path of least resistance, the easy way, the course that requires the smallest investment of blood, sweat and tears. But history teaches that quick and simple is rarely the avenue for achieving lasting success and significance. In the realms of entertainment and art, we often hear about the overnight success, the person that was a virtual unknown one day whose name was on the lips of everyone the next: the breakout star of a major motion picture; a singer soaring to the top of the music charts; an author whose book gains widespread public acclaim, turning her into an instant celebrity. But we all know that even though a person may go from being unnoticed to stardom in the blink of an eye, much effort, struggle and preparation were invested to make that overnight success possible. My friend, Gary Highfield, is a great example. In his book, When Want To Becomes Have To!, Gary details a very difficult childhood, including some heartwrenching experiences. As a young adult with a wife and three children, he had a dead-end, hourly wage job, barely scraping by. He wanted a better life for his family, and then his want to became have to, starting an ambitious self-improvement program. Garys book not only tells his personal story, but also presents many of the principles and wisdom he gained over the years through hard work, determination, a refusal to quit and the grace and timely provision of God. His path was difficult, but he refused to accept failure and the seemingly easier alternative of resigning himself to being a victim of his circumstances. In the process, Garys career transformed from frustrating, unfulfilling manual labor to great success in sales and entrepreneurship. Today many disadvantaged people are being promised entitlements, but he understood his true entitlement was to utilize the talents and abilities God had built into him to realize his personal and professional goals and dreams. Today he seeks to help others in similar circumstances. The Bible speaks a lot about this, both in workplace and spiritual terms. Here are some examples: Sufferings serve to strengthen us. Hardships can build endurance, just as years of training equip top athletes to perform at championship levels, far beyond their peers. but we also rejoice in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope. And hope does not disappoint us (Romans 5:3-4). No such thing as a quick fix. Many people want instant success, rewards without the struggle. But often formulating a plan, even if it takes time and overcoming challenges to carry out, can serve as a reward in itself. Steady plodding brings prosperity; hasty speculation brings poverty (Proverbs 21:5). Struggles shape and refine us. A caterpillar faces great difficulty escaping the cocoon after turning into a butterfly, but its struggle is rewarded as it flies majestically through the air. Similarly, hard work refines us into who and what we are to become. Consider it pure joy, my brothers, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith develops perseverance. Perseverance must finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything (James 1:3-4).Robert J.

A few months ago we broke up, and I have found out that he moved in with another woman who has a child from an earlier marriage. Over the years my brokerage account went up and down a bit because of the market, however at present I have about two million dollars in my account. On the other hand his account was about $75,000.00. Yesterday I received a letter from a divorce lawyer he hired which asked for last months statement on my account, and sent me my former friends last statement from his checking account. His lawyer suggested that my Ex was entitled to one half of the combined accounts held between us, as a matter of law, and alimony because my income at that time was twice his. I have not hired an attorney and I do not know what the lawyer was talking about since my Ex and I were not married; am I wrong. A. The short answer in no, and probably yes. The no, is for the alimony demand. Under Florida law if there is no formal marriage. There is no common-law marriage in Florida and, thus, there is no alimony under most circumstances. Florida law does not recognize Palimony, that is alimony just because the two of you lived together. The limited exception mentioned above is not relevant to you and your former boyfriend. The division of your net finical difference may be a problem to you. Your initial agreement did not contain any provisions regarding what happened to each of your accounts if and when you split. However Florida appellate courts have ruled that under your circumstances it would be inequitable for you to receive a windfall by virtue of his paying all of your mutual expenses for the fifteen years, while you were able to grow your assets through the stock market and other investments. If you and your EX cannot negotiate an amount less than one half of your combined assets his lawyer will probably file a petition asking the court to construct a trust, and then subject all of your combined money to this trust, and order the division of the trust funds 50/50. I say probably because you may know of other benefits that he received from your income which might help balance the scales, lowering or diminishing his share.

Edition 17023for news 24/7 go to January 24, through January 30, 2014BusinessThe Boca Raton Tribune Officials at Boca Raton Regional Hospital and North Shore-LIJ Health System today announced an affiliation agreement aimed at creating synergistic opportunities in such areas as patient care, clinical program development and research and education in the health sciences. The agreement has an initial three-year term. North Shore-LIJ Health System is the largest integrated healthcare network in the state of New York and one of the nations largest healthcare systems, with net annual revenue of more than $7 billion. The health system has 16 member hospitals and nearly 400 ambulatory physician practices throughout the New York metropolitan area, affiliations with more than 9,400 physicians and a total workforce of more than 47,000 the largest private employer in New York. North Shore-LIJ also has its own medical school (the Hofstra North Shore-LIJ School of Medicine) and research enterprise (The Feinstein Institute for Medical Research). This is a very exciting and important development for Boca Raton Regional Hospital, said Jerry Fedele, President and CEO. We are thrilled to establish a mutually beneficial relationship with one of the most accomplished health systems in the country. This unique agreement between independent healthcare systems operating in different states provides substantial value to the respective hospitals, affiliated physicians and patients in both New York and Florida. Our affiliation will permit both organizations to collaborate and share best practices to better meet the healthcare needs of the populations we serve, including many patients who live in the New York area and spend the winter months in Palm Beach and Broward counties, said Michael J. Dowling, North Shore-LIJs President and CEO. Establishing this new relationship will lead to better continuity of care for patients who rely on both providers for their care. From the continuity and quality of care perspective alone, we had an excellent foundation for establishing a relationship. Both Fedele and Dowling emphasized that discussions between the organizations identified a number of opportunities for additional collaboration. While our preliminary talks were rooted in continuity of care, we soon discovered a joint desire to explore ways that we could learn from each other, said Fedele. The depth and experience of a system such as North Shore-LIJ certainly presents outstanding advantages to us and will be important as healthcare migrates to new paradigms of care that are focused on population health management, wellness and new risk and performance-based payment structures. Dowling stressed that the quality of programs and services at Boca Regional was also a determining factor for North Shore-LIJ to structure an affiliation. It was essential for us to partner with an organization that shares our level of commitment to patient care. By any metric, be it patient safety, quality of care or national accolades for clinical excellence, Boca Regional is exceptional, he said. When you couple that with its programmatic vibrancy and its regional leadership in such areas as heart and cancer care, womens health and now the neurosciences, this is a hospital that we can recommend to our patients with great confidence and enthusiasm. Fedele emphasized that the affiliation with North Shore-LIJ was indicative of Boca Regionals ongoing efforts to not only respond to industry challenges, but also to strengthen itself through creative relationships. The Hospitals Board of Trustees recently completed a strategic planning process that called for Boca Regional to remain an independent, not-for-profit hospital while seeking partnerships that would strengthen its ability to thrive and provide the best care for its patients in an evolving healthcare environment. According to the affiliation agreement, both Boca Raton Regional Hospital and North Shore-LIJ will maintain their respective corporate independence and local autonomy. We are most enthused with this agreement, said Boca Regional Board Chair, Christine E. Lynn. It is indicative of both the Board and managements desire to seek out new and better ways to serve our community while remaining true to our mission and heritage. Our new relationship with North Shore-LIJ compliments that goal perfectly. North Shore-LIJ is thrilled to develop this formal affiliation with a hospital outside of New York that will focus principally on clinical care programming, said Richard D. Goldstein, Chair of the North ShoreLIJ Board of Trustees. Working with an extraordinary partner like Boca Raton Regional Hospital, we will ensure that thousands of New Yorkers and Floridians with homes in both states will be able to access the coordinated care they need to stay healthy.Boca Raton Regional Hospital Announce Aliation Agreement Grayrobinson Announces Expansion Of Boca Raton OceBOCA RATON, Fla.

We have been successful in bringing an attractive and affordable plan to the membership that will enhance the resort-style experience, said Eben Molloy, General Manager of Woodfield Country Club. Maintaining our position as the premier family country club in the fiercely competitive local marketplace involves continually investing in our club and evolving to meet the needs of current and future members.

Our ability to attract families and those seeking a vibrant lifestyle sets us apart from many other country club communities, added Molloy. The planned improvements are the direct result of input from our members. There is a combination of renovations that appeal to children as well as adults. This diversity is what has established Woodfield as the premier family country club in Boca Raton.

He knows the game and is excited to learn more as he matures as a defenseman. Nick Bellinato, Bjorn Bjornsson, Wilder Rumpf, Tom Sharp, Gabe Torres and Zach Williams will be the core group of midfielders next season.

30 -Edition 170 January 24, through January 30, 2014 www.bocaratontribune.comSports By Chad BeattieLynn University hosted its final home swim meet of the season with mixed results, falling 124-71 in points to California University of Pennsylvania but winning four overall events. Thalie Carmigniani continued to excel by taking victory in two more individual events, Tyne Potgieter earned a win in the 200 breast stroke and the Fighting Knights medley relay improved to 6-1 in races. Swimming in their second match in as many days, one could forgive the Blue & White if they came out slow in the opening event. Quite the opposite, though, as Lynn breezed to victory in the 400 medley relay (4:04.26), outlasting California (Pa.) by 10 seconds. The same quartet which took first at Saint Leo, Carmigniani, Potgieter, Magdalena Baranowska and Julia Pedersen, were able to duplicate their success in the pool. Morgan Glazer led things off for Lynn in the 1000 freestyle, putting forth a time of 12:41.68 to claim two points. Baranowska followed as the runner-up in the 200 freestyle while Clairissa Myatt took forth to help the team pick up six more points. Pedersen (25.99), Potgieter (27.49) and Emily Angst (28.14) all competed in the 50 freestyle, finishing third, sixth and seventh, respectively. The Fighting Knights success was limited until the fourth individual competition when Carmigniani sped past the field with a NCAA B cut time of 2:13.00 in the 200 individual medley, seven seconds better than second place. Savannah Maier took sixth with a time of 2:27.43. Angst was the only member of the Blue & White to participate in the 200 butterfly and the freshman placed second with a time of 2:33.01.
