12 -Edition 176 March 07, through March 13, 2014 www.bocaratontribune.com By Fred HamiltonA Boca Raton man who was convicted of one count of attempted manslaughter after he struck his wife multiple times with a machete was sentenced to 15 years in state prison on Tuesday. Circuit Judge Robin Rosenberg agreed with prosecutors that Tilakdharry Basdeo deserved the "brutal nature of this attack" on July days already served in jail. A jury convicted Basdeo, 36, on Dec. 19 on one count of attempted manslaughter. Assistant Public Defender Christine Geraghty had requested a sentence of five years and about five months, the lowest possible penalty, citing Basdeo's close family ties and a recent request for leniency from victim Sonawatie Sukhu. "I am still willing to forgive and forget and move on with life," she wrote in a Jan. 16 letter to the judge. While they called it a premeditated act of attempted first-degree murder, Geraghty and Assistant Public Defender Greg Rosenfeld argued there was a lack of evidence Basdeo intended to kill Sukhu. They told the jury Basdeo was in a "blind rage" when he sliced Sukhu eight times with the machete, after Sukhu repeatedly refused to tell her husband where she spent the previous night away from their home on Marlin Drive west of the city. When the woman arrived home around 3:30 p.m. the following day, Basdeo, who was outside chopping trees, called a family meeting to discuss his wife staying out late the previous night. The discussion soon escalated to an enraged argument between the two, according to the report. Basdeo left the room while shouting, "I'm going to get a machete and cut you into pieces," prosecutors told the jury. on his claim, holding his wife down and swinging the machete toward her shoulder several times, they said. When the couple's daughter began to cry, Basdeo raised the machete above his head as if to strike her and yelled, 'stop crying,' police said. But when his daughter screamed for him to stop, he returned to strike the mother four to five more times, prosecutors said.Boca man Convicted of Chopping his Wife Gets 15 years

Michael Mullaugh was first appointed in 2008 to fill vacated Council Seat B, and was elected without opposition his first time actually running an election campaign, Mullaugh the race. A native of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, Michael moved to Boca in 1997. A lawyer by training, for many years he worked for a bank in the trusts and estates department. When Mullaugh and his family first came to Boca they knew it was a wonderful place to live, and he immediately became involved in the community, by helping the residents at Boca Teeca who were having a problem with airplanes flying over their buildings early in the morning, creating unbearable noise. Mullaugh was able to get local support and go to the county commissioners and city of Boca to get the federal agencies in charge of flight patterns, to change them so that planes would fly over the ocean, instead of the apartment buildings. Michael was also president of the Broken Sound Country Club for 3 years. With a background in finance, one of the main things Mullaugh has brought to the city council is a disciplined approach on how When things started going badly with the budget in 2008 and some members wanted to invade the city reserves, I said that was not the right thing to do; instead I advised the city manager and administration to do some budget cuts, wherever possible, without invading the reserves. When things got better they had not invaded the reserves, Michael Mullaugh believes city government is important because, among other things, it is what determines how safe the community is and ensures quality of life for that city; it is the basic unit of government that comes into play when something goes wrong.

Robert completed his degree, although he did not wish to start his own practice. Instead he began working for insurance companies in their legal departments, in Boston, York City. After working for AIG for some time, Weinroth decided that rather than starting a new adventure south, to the Boca Raton area, where he had some relatives: Boca sounded like a nice place to put my stake in the ground, he affirms. as a manager and lawyer and a medical supplies company: My wife and I built the company from nothing.

Rosetta was born and raised in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania Bank for 26 years before deciding been a resident of Boca for over 5 years. Bailey affirms that, for her, running for city council has been one of her most memorable accomplishments. She admits it has been quite a challenge, but also an enjoyable journey. In contrast to her as politically inclined as the other candidates, but I will not comply; I stick to the truth and to my agenda. Along those lines, Bailey believes one of her strongest traits, which makes her stand out among the other candidates, is transparency: what is happening; there are over 85,000 people in this city, and only about 6,000 actually vote. I want to change that, and let people know that it is a privilege to vote; it is the truth and honesty is reflected in my neighbors wrote me an email believe that as long as you stick to the truth no one can turn around and accuse you of lying. The changed, and that is what I run on. member of city council she will for the council men and women their way; I work for the people of the city. When a group of council members drafted an ordinance that would place limitations on how rights, Bailey decided it was time to get involved in city politics to make that known to residents and keep it from happening again. Another factor that strongly contributed to she has been traveling the East coast presentations about Agenda 21, the Seven-50 movement, the Wildlands Project, among others, educating everyone who listens. During her travels, Rose has seen and spoken to people from all walks of life, and has truly been able to listen to the concerns of residents. According to Bailey, what it all comes down to is making smart decisions that will benefit the city as a whole. As a member of the city be: maintaining transparency in every respect, finding out who truly benefits from all the development and construction happening downtown, family-friendly, and finally bringing more awareness about the hardships suffered by service men and women, by creating a more welcoming environment in the city for them.

What Is Quality And How Do You Achieve It? Company had an often-used advertising slogan, "Quality is motto persuaded some car buyers to purchase cars and trucks made by had a strong commitment to producing quality vehicles. The only question is, what does "quality" mean? I suspect if you were to ask 10 different people, they would provide you with as many as 10 different opinions. Recently, in working on a book project with a manufacturing company, I was talking with the director of quality. I asked him that question and liked his response: "Doing the right thing every time." always doing what you are supposed to do, doing things correctly consistently. And not messing up. In our industry, not messing up is very important." Quality, of course, can mean many other things. You would but regardless of which brand you have, you would still want it to tell you the correct time. A Mercedes sedan might offer greater "quality" than an economy sedan, but you you safely from point A to point B. We become upset if that does not happen. So getting back to the earlier definition, "doing the right thing every time" says a lot. Would you feel confident undergoing major surgery if the surgeon had a reputation for patients surviving flying in a passenger jet piloted by someone who successfully landed 75 percent of his flights? Would you want to buy a high-definition TV that turned on only 60 percent of the time? We insist on quality which means the product or service should do the right thing every time. we perform in the workplace? Can our employers and customers consistency and dependability are hallmarks of quality businesses and business and professional people that achieve high levels of success.
