By Robert Baez Eleven percent of registered voters participated in the 2012 Boca Raton Municipal election, according to Palm Beach County Supervisor of Elections Susan Bucher. And in the previous year, even fewer voters a staggering 7 percent elected the current mayor, Susan Whelchel. Some may say that the reason for the low turnout rate is too little free time. Studies have shown that even weather conditions are reported as being an obstacle on Election Day. We are more caught up in a digital world than ever before, but it has become increasingly challenging to filter out resourceful information from all the noise that one encounters in a day. People have countless amount of information available at their fingertips but at the same time, less educated decisions about public policy are being made. Rather than learning how to be inquisitive and engaged in the public sphere, the younger generation is too caught up in deciding which filter their Instagram photo should have, and how many followers they have on Twitter. None of this is actually going to make an impactful difference within society. People have altered their free hours spent reading books and enjoying others company, to scrolling past have become inverted and citizens seem to be more interested in the rather than the impact they can cause with their vote. It is no surprise that the number of voters showing up to the polls on Election Day in Boca Raton, and the rest of the United States, is still deficient. Home entertainment devices and social media have caused a lack of community that is needed in order to have a balanced democratic society. We may live in a democracy, but if less than 10 percent of the population votes in municipal elections, are we truly getting a democratic result? Most politicians would be happy with this low number because they would strictly focus on the 10 percent that are actually voting, which in turn lowers their campaign costs and raises their chances of winning. The candidates focus on those particular groups of people and bombard them with political messages rather than appealing to the entire community. It is a vicious cycle that will continue to repeat itself as long as we continue to make the decision to not participate. Increased geographic mobility and instantaneous global news could also be a cause of low voter turnouts. Perhaps the ability to pick up your belongings and move to another city is so obtainable that many find themselves not contributing to their current community because they can see themselves in another area. Some districts have restrictions for residents who may have recently arrived that does not allow for them to participate in the voting process. People are consumed by the most current news happening around the world but not about the issues that are happening in their very own backyard. Maybe people are just not being informed about the elections. Some of them, especially the young adults, can be intimidated by the bureaucracy and voting routine. Increasing the awareness of each votes importance can encourage voters to feel more confident and prepared in making their decisions. In many democracies around the world, elections take place over the weekend. In the United States, by law, elections are held on the Tuesday after the first Monday of the month. Many can relate in having trouble getting to the polls because they may have work or class to attend, then have other duties immediately following their already hectic and stressed filled day. In countries such as Brazil, Argentina and Greece, voting is demanded of their citizens. Brazil even requires its abroad citizens to vote at the nearest Consulate. Since citizens may not be knowledgeable on contemporary topics and cause a sway in the integrity of the vote, rather than making voting mandatory, the level of civic awareness in our society needs to become a priority. The average American must feel more comfortable to engage and participate in the public sphere. Citizens of the United States of America have fought very hard for their right to vote. We have overcome racial and gender percent of registered voters decide what happens for the rest of the population. If you do not vote, do not complain. The people who show up determine every election. Abraham Lincoln said it best, Elections belong to the people. It's their decision. If they decide to turn their back on the fire and burn their behinds, then they will just have to sit on their blisters. The Boca Raton Municipal election will be on Tuesday, March 11.

8 -Edition 172 www.bocaratontribune.com EDITORIAL By C. Ron Allen EDITORIALS/LETTERSThe Boca Raton TribuneFounded January 15, 2010 Publisher By all reasonable expectations, months. No, not because of Valentines Day but this time each year, we observe Black History Month. It is one of my busiest and financially lucrative months. Its the one time a year when black authors and public speakers such as myself are in high demand. Every institution and organization is looking to book one. There is plenty of work to go around, especially since I and a few other black writers that I know tend to respectfully decline these invitations. Not that I couldnt use the extra money or anything, but I resent being ghettoized, having people interested in what I do and what I have to say only during the While I do not think we should relegate my history to a month, I think it is important for black people to know their history, and for white people to appreciate the contributions we made and continue to make to our country. In doing so we can and will uncover new truths about the journey we all share, and new promises for the next generation. Such has been the case already this week. This year, students at Village Academy in Delray Beach began a new learning experience. They are learning about blacks who changed the course of history through an on-campus museum. Teachers and volunteers have converted a portable classroom into the museum, complete with artifacts and live oral historians. The 30-minute presentations dubbed Through the Years, a Slice of Black History encompass profiles of prominent people, organizations and events and artifacts. Live recollections and experiences from local living legends are also infused into the presentation. I find it amazing to see the students, from 3-years-old and up, walk into that room and leave with a greater appreciation of their history. That laboratory experience is more than they could have learned in any traditional classroom. As we learn about the accomplishments of the many legends, I am left feeling like we still have not given full respect to the very legacies that were trying to honor. After all, these were phenomenal people who have accomplished phenomenal things, achievements that have been a tremendous benefit to the entire world, not just black people. I must add that this is not, as vat of a factually flawed and at times fictional history of how bad the blacks had it in America. Students will not hear that whites are privileged and their ancestors had slaves. Instead, this experience is one that teaches all children factual history. They will discover that without George Washington Carver, there might not be peanut butter, and if C. Spencer Pompey had not intervened, black teachers in Palm Beach County would not receive equal pay as their white counterparts and later equal number of days for black students. I find that the younger generations could care less about this month, and it seems like older generations are starting to share the consensus. The problem for many people is Black History Month (like every other habitual holiday in America) yields no meaning after its over. Its the short, cold month some) when the gaudy decorations are pulled out and dusted off and goes back into your closet at the end of the season. So because of the short period, they see no need to extensively reflect and no reason to relate. The organizers of the museum have promised Black History the accomplishments by blacks every day of the year. My only hope is that they will remain true to their promise and find a way to incorporate this rich information into their curriculum. Our journey is far from over, but as I look back on all that our nation has accomplished, I think Black History Month is truly a time to celebrate the freedom to strive, to achieve, and above all to contribute to a better, stronger American community. Without it, future generations wont even know or care that the ever present problems of black people are slowly but steadily slip-sliding off Americas radar.What Would America be Without Black History Month?

Edition 1729for news 24/7 go to bocaratontribune.com www.bocaratontribune.com 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. You Can Be and Do Your Best for Others!Every single day of any persons life, countless opportunities come and go requiring some type of action. In some situations one can totally ignore them, but in most, we should not so quickly dismiss, especially since what we do can make a positive different in that life! We are surrounded at all times by people in need. Even the financially wealthy lack certain things which others can help provide. Everybody needs encouragement, everyone passes through difficult phases in life which a friendly word, a wise counsel, or a concrete, positive action can help alleviate or even resolve altogether! No one should live on earth with eyes closed. If such were the case a person would constantly trip and fall, people would miss the beauty of the scenery en route to where they are going, and all would lose opportunities of helping a fellow human in ways that can tangibly affect them for good. In this, the wealthiest nation on earth, and the most privileged country of the globe, we cannot just think of ourselves, our wants, and even specific needs. Both within our borders and beyond them, theres a multitude of fellow humans eager to see, hear, and concretely benefit from whatever we are able to impart. Never consider your offers as too small, or insignificant. In life, the things that make or break are small in nature. Just like a frown, or an unkind word can negatively affect another life, a smile, a hug, and countless more acts of kindness can transform a life for the better. Let us not be selective in welldoing; instead, let us always be indiscriminate in our good will and positive gestures. Every human is of immeasurable value and deserves the best we can impart and provide, as insignificant or small as it may at first appear to us. A long, long time ago, Queen Mary of England was taking a walk alone in the beautiful area surrounding her Balmoral Palace. At one point, dark clouds started appearing in the skies, indicating the certainty of rain. Without being recognized, she knocked at a cottage along the way, and requested from the lady of the house an umbrella which she would promptly return the following day. An old, used one was found, and offered to that stranger at her door. As promised, the next day, Her Majesty sent one her royal employees, in full regalia, to return that umbrella, along with a note from her. After the umbrella was delivered and the borrower was identified, that lady was heard, behind the closed was for my Queen, I would have given her my very best. May we always be and do the best we can toward our fellow humans since we dont know who they are now, or who they will become tomorrow. Nevertheless, as fellow citizens of earth, they also deserve the very best we can supply! friends have assisted with a local Adopt a School program. One lesson I have learned through this involvement is the importance of hope. Children who have known and experienced grinding poverty and great oppression can be successful if they are given hope. I do not mean, hope so, which basically means best wishes or good luck. I mean true hope, gained through seeing real examples of people that have overcome similar adversities, along with receiving practical goals and strategies to put them on a path toward a better life. Strangely enough, feelings of hopelessness are not confined to ghettos and disadvantaged communities. Our workplaces could use some hope as well. A recent Gallup survey revealed only 30 percent of workers feel excited about their jobs, finding them meaningful and rewarding. Can you imagine less than one-third of workers today approach their workplace responsibilities with enthusiasm? What if the other 70 percent understood their callings as workers and were given hope, a real sense they could escape the feelings of drudgery and frustration that dominate their every day realities? If they could find hope, I believe most likely they would become more engaged and productive. Instead of being excess baggage for their companies, they could develop into important, valued employees. How could this happen? There is no simple, instant solution. Sometimes workers look like the proverbial square peg trying to fit into a round hole. Their unique mix of skills and talents might be a poor match for the responsibilities they have been assigned to perform every day. They might feel underutilized, or prevented from exploring opportunities to grow professionally and personally. They could feel stuck, like their job is a dead-end, without expectation for advancement. There are many types of proficiency and personality tests, along with motivational assessment tools employers can use to evaluate their employees and explore how to maximize their contributions to the company. In some cases, a dead-end job might indeed be just that, meaning the worker should be encouraged to pursue alternatives that would be more rewarding materially, mentally and emotionally. People need hope the expectation or confidence that better things lay ahead and can be reached. Hope deferred makes the heart sick, but a longing fulfilled is a tree of life. Lack of hope can take its toll physically, as well as in other ways. Ultimately, followers of Jesus Christ find their hope in God, assured of His promises to care for us, provide for us, and guide us instance, God gave this assurance I know the plans that I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for calamity to give you a future and a hope (Jeremiah specific plans for us and is diligently working to bring them about, how we not have hope? With this in mind, why not take a moment and try to provide hope to someone in your workplace today? Copyright 2013, Integrity Resource Center, Inc.

Lewis said he was her boyfriend, but when the witness didnt believe him, Lewis ran off, according to the report. Police said they found Lewis on and had witnesses identify him. Lewis is facing charges of aggravated battery using a deadly weapon, armed burglary and kidnapping. He is being held without bond at the Palm Beach County jail. It was absolutely the scariest thing that ever happened to me, Russo a Lynn University graduate, said. I was literally fighting for my life. All I could think about was living.

www.bocaratontribune.com Edition 172B1Section B By Skip SheffieldIt was Superbowl Sunday. I decided to do a profoundly un-Big Pinters Old Times at Palm Beach Dramaworks, 201 Clematis St., West Palm Beach. The play continues through March 2. I never watched the Big Game, but I sure am glad I saw Old Times. The thoroughly British, 2005 Nobel Prize for Literature-winner Harold Pinter is a difficult playwright. His dialogue is spare, enigmatic, contradictory and sometimes just baffling. His 1971 work Old Times is one of his most baffling, yet brilliant pieces. Some critics have described Pinters genre as comedy with menace. Certainly there is menace along with some laughs in this three-character play about a married couple and a friend of the wife who comes to visit after 20 years away. The play begins in the parlor of the couples converted farmhouse on the west coast of England. Deeley (Craig Wroe) asks his wife Kate (Shannon Koob) about her longlost friend. She was my best friend, Kate explains. She was my only friend. If you have only one of something, you cant say its the best of anything, Deeley counters. And so it continues with seemingly trivial small talk about the casserole Kate is cooking and the impending arrival of the mysterious guest. Anna (Pilar Witherspoon), who like Kate is in her early 40s, is a much more talkative, outgoing person than Anna. The small talk continues. Deeley recalls he met Anna at a movie theater that was showing Odd Man Out. That title will take on added significance by plays end, when we learn some things said by Deeley, Kate and Anna are simply not true. As Pinter himself says, A thing is not necessarily true or false; it can be both true and false. Old Times is performed without intermission in just one hour, 15 minutes. A set change is performed onstage in full view, as the parlor becomes an upstairs bedroom. Director J. Barry Lewis has cast three extraordinary professionals with most impressive credentials to play the sketchy, under-written characters. The power of the play is conveyed by the interior emotions of the characters, which is up to the actor to convey. My guest was a woman in her early 30s. She was as fascinated with the real meaning of the play as I was. We both came to pretty much the same conclusion, but the wonder of Pinter is that everything is up for debate. If you want a play that makes you think out of the box, this shows for you. 514-4012 or go to www. palmbeachdramaworks.org.

www.bocaratontribune.com B2 Edition 172 Section B Entertainment Skip Sheffield Tonys Tips For Success Plan It! Prepare It! Expect It! Tony HallWe have spent a few weeks talking about goals. Many of us have been planning to achieve our goals. We have written down the steps and procedures we need to take to strike gold. We should also by now be putting that plan into action! It is only when you Plan to Win! Prepare to Win! Can you expect to win! Lets chat about expecting to test coming up, it could be a test in school, a weigh-in if you are participating in a fitness challenge, it could even be a progress check here at the dojo. If you have put the work in, you feel confident that you will pass the test. That is the Goal right, Pass your Test? Wrong! The Goal is never to just pass. If we do our BEST in everything we do. Our Goal should be to get Straight As, Get every answer right on the test, Hit every sales goal, lose 10lbs if I set a goal for 5lbs, Be the best performer for your Teacher or Coach! As a teacher, I do the same goals as you do. I plan the lessons for the week. I work my plan and prepare you. Your teachers expect you to be state big on school testing. You can ask any educator, do they want a class that just barely meets the state requirement for passing, or do they want a 100% passing class. I think you can guess what they will say. Plan to be the Best! Prepare to be the Best! Be the Best! That is the only way to succeed! ~~~Confidence~~ I mentioned the Acronym C.O.O.L. in my last column. We are focusing this year on teaching kids how to be C.O.O.L. When I grew up it was Saved by the Bell Cool. What did he have other kids didnt? Confidence. Confident kids are less likely to be bullied and picked on. Most bullies know a second language. Body language! Bullies know how to tell if you are sad, happy, depressed, just an easy target. Teach your child how to read others body language and they will be more aware of their own. Play a game; ask them to tell you what emotion you are feeling. Confidence breeds confidence! If you child plans with confidence, prepares with confidence, you can expect they will be confident when the time comes to test them selves. You can Expect Them to WIN!Bromance Blooms in That Awkward MomentBy Skip SheffieldThe best I can say about That Awkward Moment is that it is not as lame as I feared. It actually has some laughs. The film is aimed at twentysomeings, but we have all been there. Michael B. Jordan star as three best friends in New York City. Jason (Efron) and Daniel (Teller) work as book jacket designers and Mikey (Jordan) is a doctor. Designing book jackets must really be lucrative, because the guys have a big, groovy pad down in Chelsea. The Award Moment of the title, written by first-time director Tom Gormican, is the point is this serious?, or is it just a passing fancy? chasing girls is fine. Mikey has made the commitment of marriage to beautiful Vera (Jessica Lucas), but she has cheated on him and fallen for another man. She wants a divorce. So like the men of Shakespeares Loves Labours Lost, the three modern musketeers make a pledge to swear off serious relationships and just have fun. Thats easier said than done, especially when a guy finds himself falling for someone special. the adorably imperfect Imogen Poots. Ellie is a rich girl who has a job in that same lucrative field of pal Chelsea (Mackenzie Davis), who is quickly becoming more than just a friend. Mikey still moons over Vera, and spends most of the film secretly trying to woo her back. Thats pretty much it, except for standard frat-boy rude sex, booze and the top-billed star, it is Miles Teller who is by far the more interesting actor. Unlike pretty boy Efron (who has put on a bit of weight, ladies), Teller has character, not the least of which are the prominent scars on his face and neck, resulting from a horrific car accident. Michael B. Jordan is one super good-looking dude, and if youve he can act, but his Mikey as written is the least interesting character. In all That Awkward Moment is fair to middling. It could have been worse. 1/2 stars
www.bocaratontribune.com Edition 172B3Section B Fitness Life Randy FineThe popsicle or dog walk diet As crazy as this sounds, it is based some back ground. When you eat food you fill your stomach. Then the stomach gets to a certain point, often determined by the amount of food you have been eating recently, your body sends a signal to the brain to tell you to stop eating. This is why you feel full. Your body sends the signal by means of a hormone called ghrelin. It takes about 20 minutes for the signal to go from the stomach to the brain. So if you eat quickly you can get in more than you intended to eat before the signal gets you to stop. The overeating often comes at the time that you would be having desert. The denser in calories the desert is, the more calories you will eat before you get the signal to stop. However if you have a popsicle that is lets say is 50 calories you will eat it at a much slower pace than say cake or cookies, in order to prevent a brain freeze. That is also proven by science to really exist as well. So in the time you can eat 300 calories you may only get down 50 to a 100. Getting up after dinner and walking the dog also causes a gap in time and allows enough time for the signal to be sent as well. Thus when you get back, you are completely capable of having desert, but more than likely will not feel the same urge to have it, that you had prior to walking the dog. If you would like help with your own eating, send me an email and maybe it will be an article that will help others as well.Saladino Dance Productions Singin and Dancin in the Rain celebrates Gene KellySaladino Dance Productions Rome Saladino and Marina Putane have assembled a superb eightmember ensemble to perform Singin and Dancin in the Rain, their tribute to Hollywoods legendary song and dance man, Gene Kelly.

Wilnic Gideon is an inspirational leader in his community who is continuing his commitment to the program by mentoring and empowering the next generation, said Madeline Pumariega, president and CEO of Take Stock in Children. We are proud to honor Wilnic Gideon, and all nominated alumni of excellence who exemplify our values of transforming lives through education. One of 14,041 Take Stock in Children program graduates, Gideon said the news caught him by surprise. I was shocked and a little humble as well, said Gideon, who has been a School District employee for two years. Im a very humble person so just finding out that I was being honored for something was shocking. I wasnt expecting it. Gideon will be honored during Stock in Childrens Leadership in Tallahassee. The Riviera Beach resident is an educator, coach, mentor and motivational coach. He attributes his success to the Take Stock in Children program that significantly impacted his life and helped him succeed both personally and academically. It was while a student at Lauderhill Middle School that Gideon enrolled in the program and was matched with a mentor. He attended Piper High School and later transferred to Palm Beach Gardens High from where State University and majored in Secondary mathematics Gideon spent countless hours tutoring, implementing programs, and mentoring students in the Tallahassee community. Its been a lifelong passion to help students that came from similar background, said Gideon, who taught Algebra 1 his first year before becoming a dean. He previously taught in Tallahassee. My idea was to implement whatever programs to get them the necessary things they need to be successful. When he returned home, he signed up to be a Take Stock in Children mentor and meets regularly with his mentee, Brion Crawford, a Boca Raton High School student. Gideon is continuing his education at Lynn University to receive his masters degree in Educational Leadership. Children has awarded scholarships to more than 1,000 students. The scholarship program is designed to motivate and assist students who show academic promise and who might not otherwise have the opportunity to attend college. The scholarship recipients are matched with adult volunteer mentors from the community who provide guidance and encouragement. All the selected scholarship recipients sign a contract agreeing to maintain good grades, to stay out of trouble, to stay away from drugs and alcohol and to graduate from high school.Trespassing Trio Busted After Refusing to Leave Irish PubBy Jason SchwartzThe Dubliner may be a place where strangers become friends.

Edition 17219for news 24/7 go to bocaratontribune.com www.bocaratontribune.com BusinessThe Boca Raton Tribune By: Quezia SalgadoInterviews with businessmen are almost always the same, suits, platitude, and lots of rushing. With Igor Pipolo is it different, however. A very calm and good-humored man, security consultant Igor Ppolo began his successful professional journey in his hometown of Natal, Rio Grande do Norte, in Brazil. During his youth he worked as an events promoter, organizing everything from night club parties, to scavenger hunts and jam sessions. Noticing his parents dissatisfaction towards his current job, he decided Infantry Motorized Battalion, where he began to have an interest for weapons and security in a general. Igor later received his law degree and worked as a business man in his hometown of Natal. In addition to that, after completing the High Direction Security course, organized by the Pontificia Comillas University of Madrid, in Sao Paulo, he occupied the position of director of the Alcauz State Penitentiary. Along his career, Igor encountered several people who he considers to be mentors, and whose contact and exchange of ideas, he says, became a determining factor for his success. Among those are Colonel Rio Grande do Norte, and Roberto Marconi, former director of security for Globo, Brazils main television station. Of Marconi, who recently I remember Marconi with great sadness and immense gratitude. His premature death deeply moves me. In the year 2000 Igor participated in yet another training Barry University, where he was invited by Roberto Marconi to work as coordinator of security for Globo TV. At Globo, his main responsibility was to guarantee the safety of grand events, news shows, soap opera premiers, etc., while also attending to personal demands from the stations directors and artists. During this time, Mr. Ppolos reputation grew immensely, due to the increasing demand of his security consulting services, which became more profitable than his television job. As a result, Igor decided to invest in his consulting career, and in 2005 he founded Nucleo Consulting. I founded the company with the intention of offering complete quality service. We do everything from auditing, to risk management, personal security, and information security, which is, without a doubt, a very delicate area. The company has grown since 2005, adding new partners, and today is composed of specialists in every area of security/protection. Eight months ago, Igor and his family moved to Boca, where he continues to work as a security consultant for Sekura, consulting for American companies that have bases in Brazil, as well as others that have an interest in investing in the country. We are very well accommodated; its a beautiful city that offers great quality of life.As an internationally renowned security specialist, Igor travels the world giving seminars and speaking at events geared towards various aspects of his field. Just last November, he was in White Plains, NY, where the Master Security Week conference was held. Among those in attendance were about 34 executives from Brazil, Mexico, Venezuela, Colombia, and Bolivia representing companies like Motorola, BP, Nestle, Nextel, among others. Mr. Ppolo and his team are currently working on getting the support of local universities to sponsor the conference, which is set to take place in June, right here in Boca. Dedication and Simplicity The Mark of SuccessThe Greater Boca Raton Estate Planning Council (GBREPC) held its monthly dinner meeting on January 21, at the Woodfield Country Club in Boca Raton. Alan B. Rosenthal, GBREPC President and Lanny Marks, GBREPC Immediate Past President, presented checks to Atlantic University, and John Gallo, representing Lynn University. Other recipients, not in attendance, included Palm Beach State University and selected local high schools. The GBREPC has a true commitment to local institutions of education, says Rosenthal. The funds will be used to enhance programs that improve the knowledge and skills of students whose careers may ultimately take them into the field of estate planning, whether through accounting, law or finance. The well attended meeting was co-sponsored by United Nursing Services and U.S .Trust Company. As guest presenter, Georgia State University College of Law Professor Samuel A. Donaldson, spoke on, Estate and Gift Tax Developments of Interest to Estate Planners" Registered nurse and co-owner of United Nursing Services, Lisa Hersch, has for close to 12 years supported GBREPC events. Working in the home health field, Hersch has built strong ties in the estate planning community. My boutique-style agency is small and personalized, says Hersch. We provide high-end services to highend clients. If our clients should seek assistance with long term financial planning, I know I can rely upon on my friends in the GBREPC. In turn, members of the GBREPC refer their clients in need of specialized nursing services, to United Nursing Services. This wonderful reciprocal relationship has its roots in the GBREPC, and I am most grateful. Representing event co-sponsor U.S. Trust, Jonathan Greene, a private client advisor at U.S. Trust, and GBREPC member, sees the GBREPC as an excellent resource. The GBREPC holds in-season, monthly meetings that enlighten its members, he says. I have been entrusted to keep my clients legacies solid and growing. Because the GBREPC provides its membership with the best and most current information, I feel well prepared to meet my clients needs. The GBREPC will hold its next dinner meeting on Tuesday, NE 1st Street, in Delray Beach. Gregory Schupra, vice president in Philanthropic Planning for Comerica Charitable Services Group, will speak on Thoughts on Best Practices in Philanthropic Planning.

These are all relevant but equally as important is preparing on how to qualify for a mortgage. Buying a home for most is the single biggest financial decision (and emotional too) that will be made in our lives. Yet, most are ill prepared. Getting a mortgage is not easy and is a process that takes time. I was discussing some pretty interesting topics with Mortgage Consultant Rick Salerno. Here are some pitfalls he recommended to 1. Not getting pre-approved for a home if you do not have a preapproval in hand. However, many do this only to find out they could not make an offer on time and the property of interest was taken by someone who was prepared. Sellers want to know you are financially prepared and serious about entering into a contract. You may lose out on your dream home if you are not. 2. Not knowing your credit score your scores are. A low score can be substantially higher in interest rate and cost of over time or may leave you with no approval at all. will be considered a larger credit risk if you apply for any other type of credit during the mortgage process. This could potentially lower your score and grant you a higher interest rate or worse kill the deal all together, therefore jeopardizing your earnest deposit. furniture, boat, or even co-signing for someone will hurt your chances. These are funds you will try to use for closing cost and down payment but will not be allowed unless they have been in your account for at unseasoned funds, be prepared to document where the funds came from with a paper trail. Mattress money or large cold cash deposits into your account will never be accepted. Also, do not borrow money as it will not be counted. want to make sure you will have steady income so do not jump from one job to another during the process. If you are thinking of a career change wait until you close on your home first. The housing market already shows signs of recovery and many markets across the U.S. favor the home sellers. You need to make yourself the best candidate as a buyer to get your dream home and it all starts with getting preapproved. It is a process that takes work and cooperation on your part to information about mortgages you can contact Rick Salerno at 954993-4500. be prepared is half the victory.

Sometimes this is true a customer makes a demand that cannot possibly be satisfied within the specified time frame. Or a client asks for a service far beyond your companys expertise. Often, however, we conclude something is not possible because it seems like too much work, we do not know whether it can be done or not, or fear putting forth the effort only to fail. My friend, Gary Highfield, has written an outstanding book called When Want To Becomes Have To!, his story of overcoming formidable odds to become a never knew his biological father and had a very unsettled childhood, even witnessing devastating family tragedy while he was a boy. financial adversity he encountered as a young husband and father, Gary undertook a very determined strategy for dramatically changing his circumstances. He discovered many useful life principles during this process, Impossible is not possible until you quit. This seven-word statement seems simple, but it is profound. Time and again, people told Gary what he could not do, such as becoming a top-producing, industry-leading salesman, an entrepreneur, small business owner and commercial loan officer. Yet he succeeded in achieving each of these goals. All because he refused to believe what he wanted to do was impossible. There are many other examples of people who ignored negative voices, who recognized what people said was impossible in fact was possible unless they quit trying. Michelangelo probably had his detractors when he embarked on painting the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel. Thomas Edison made multiple attempts at inventing an incandescent light bulb until he succeeded. He refused to quit trying. In 1943, IBM chairman Thomas Watson stated, I think there is a world market for maybe five computers. And Digital Equipment Corp. founder Ken Olson said in 1977, There is no reason anyone would want a computer in their home. However, through hard work, vision and innovation understanding impossible is not possible until you quit many men and women proved the one-time industry giants wrong. The Bible directly addresses this We cannot do it alone. The fact is, many of our desired goals often are unattainable in our own strength. They are not impossible, but require more than the power we can muster within ourselves. We need power outside of ourselves. I can do everything through (Christ) who strengthens me (Philippians We can but only with God. If you have a God-sized dream or goal, accomplishing it requires willingness to turn to the One that gave you the dream. As Jesus told His followers, With man this is impossible, but not with God; all things are possible with God We need the right motivation. It makes sense sometimes to ask ourselves, Why am I doing this? Why is accomplishing this so important to me? If our inspiration is not self-gratification, but rather to please and honor God, we can rely on His divine assistance and direction. Delight yourself in the Lord and He will give you the The Boca Raton Tribune About thirty seven years ago my first wife and I divorced after a fourteen year marriage which produced two children. Not so long after, by coincidence, I met and married a woman with a little boy and my first wife also re-married a man with two. All four children are fully and well grown with children of their own. At no time since that divorce did any of the adults conduct themselves in such a way to intentionally harm the children. Without saying, all three of the adults grew to understand that the less angst the better for the children. Since that time we were brought together with three bar mitzvahs and weddings, numerous Thanksgivings, and a ton of long weekends when the families got Book arrived my EX friended my wife. On the other hand, during my many years as a matrimonial attorney, I have seen marriages with children explode like a megaton atomic bond. Very harsh words were screamed at one another in the presence of young children old enough to be permanently damaged. Parents intentionally alienated children against the other parent and his or her new spouse. Parents found the worst ways to introduce a new friend to their existing children. Many children were ultimately referred to psychologists or psychiatrists by the selfish stupidity of their parents who did not understand the consequences of their conduct. Whenever I see my client, or the other begin to go down the road to the destruction of children because one of their parents, or both, have allowed their loss and hurt to destroy their childs love for their other parent I have a meeting with my client to remind them that our jurisprudence believes in the best interests of the child. I suggest to them that a judge observing what I have will often rule against the perpetrator in matters of time share, alimony and property distribution. I further suggest to them that continuing war between ex husband and wife can be costly, both in money for wasteful litigation and post judgment litigation, and in the damage done to the children which can last for a life time. sensible path for them to take, no matter their initial hurt, for the best interest of all children involved, is to accept the past, and hope that the other participants in their lives do the same. Im not saying that this is ever easy, but it is always in the childrens best interest.THE LONG VIEW

Edition 17229for news 24/7 go to bocaratontribune.com www.bocaratontribune.com SPORTS By: Pedro HeizerOn Wednesday morning, Miami moved one step closer to MLS when two-time MLS Cup Champion, David Beckham confirmed he has exercised his option to purchase an MLS expansion franchise in Miami. The deal will be finalized when the former English national team captain can ensure his franchise meets the requirements over a stadium and financing before the MLS board can accept Miami as the league's 22nd club. Beckham understands that it will be a long road ahead as he moves to make Miami the 22nd franchise, Theres a lot of things to do, said the Englishmen to the room of over 300 media members. Nothing successful is easy. There will be bumps along the way, and you have to go through tough times in order to become successful. I wanted to create a team that we could start from scratch, added Beckham as to why he wants to begin a team in Miami. "I know there was a team here 10 years ago and unfortunately they folded. But, I think going forward I wanted to create a team that would be very personal. "We are making a soccer club that is going to loved by millions of people. We plan on this being a global team," continued Beckham. When it comes to the funding of We dont want public funding. We will fund the stadium ourselves In order for this team to be successful it will need a world-class state-of-the-art soccer stadium to serve as its home venue, said MLS Commissioner Don Garber. "We started our negotiations last week," Miami-Dade Mayor Carlos Gimenez said. "We have to get rolling. There's a time crunch. We are willing partners. We are very grateful that Mr. Beckham and MLS have chosen Miami as the site for their next franchise. We're going to do all in our power to make sure we get the stadium built in the right place as quickly as possible." One of the things that many people are interested in knowing is what kind of players will the MLS Miami team attract. Beckham, who played for teams like Manchester United, Real Madrid, AC Milan, Los Angeles Galaxy and Paris SaintGermain mentioned that many of his former teammates have already messaged him about the possibility of playing in Miami. Despite him wanting his team to look like the Miami Heat in regards to star players, Beckham made sure to mention that his main goal is youth development. The one thing that I want to achieve more than anything is set up a great academy that brings young local talent that will play for the team. Its not just about bringing in the best players from Europe or South America. Its about nurturing the local talent David Beckham knows it wont be easy, but he believes this time MLS in Miami will work despite failing over 10 years ago. "Miami is a vibrant city with a lot of passion," he said. "I know this city is ready for football soccer this time around. I know this is going to be successful."Beckham Announces Intent To Bring MLS Back To Miami; Englishman Now Awaits Stadium Approval Photo By: Joshua Tomlinson
