Grammy Awards have always been captive to the pre-
vious generation, producing howlingly out-of-step
results. For example, "Smells Like Teen Spirit" was a
revolutionary song that put grunge in the mainstream.
But it lost the 1992 Best Rock Song Grammy to a
22-year-old Eric Clapton song, "Layla," which had
been re-recorded acoustically without its famous gui-
tar riffs.

partment have positively
identified skeletal remains
found Sept. 12, 2008 in
an undeveloped area near
1800 West Palmetto Park
Police Chief Dan Alexan-
der told the Boca Raton
Tribune the break in the
case came when Detec-
tive Juan Pijuan received
a call from an investiga-
tor from the Palm Beach
County Sheriff's Office
who told Pijuan that he
worked a missing per-
son's case from a couple
of years prior involving a
homeless man in the area.
He provided Detective
Pijuan with the person's
name, Keith McGee. Once
he had a name, Detec-

tive Pijuan looked up
McGee's driver's license
photo. He noticed the
person in the picture ap-
peared to have had a bro-
ken nose. The autopsy
completed shortly after
the bones were discov-
ered, revealed the person
had a fractured nose that
later healed.
Also, an x-ray of the re-
mains by the medical e-
xaminer revealed a bul-
let lodged in one of the
After an extensive search,
McGee's father was lo-
cated and DNA samples
were taken to compare
against the remains. Fa-
mily members also con-
firmed that McGee was
shot in Gulfport, Missis-
sippi and doctors could
not remove the bullet due

to its proximity to his spi-
The nature of the injury
was difficult to corrobo-
rate since the hospital and
all of its records were de-
stroyed in Hurricane Ka-
trina, police said.
A special DNA test, which
took more than a year
to complete, determined
that the bones belonged to
McGee. The Medical Ex-
aminer's Office issued its
report on March 2, 2010,
citing the cause of death
to be undetermined.
Family members indi-
cated that McGee was
in poor health. The man,
they said, had no iden-
tifiable address and was
known to live in a make-
shift homeless camp near
the area where his re-
mains were discovered.

significant strides in secu-
ring the financial founda-
tion of our hospital," said
Jerry Fedele, president
and CEO of Boca Raton
Community Hospital. "It
is extremely gratifying to
see this progress stem
from operational perfor-
mance, which is critically
important to our long-
term growth and vitality."
For the first three quarters
of its current fiscal year,
BRCH recorded a net loss
of $1.6 million, which
was $7.9 million favo-
rable to the loss of $9.5
million in the same time
period during fiscal year
"Our trending is very po-
sitive," said Fedele. "I re-
main quite optimistic that
we will be profitable at
the end of the fiscal year."
In addition to its operat-
ing profit, Fedele cited a
number of significant de-

velopments contributing
to the hospital's success.
Operating EBITDA (Ear-
nings Before Interest,
Taxes, Depreciation and
Amortization) was $21.8
million for the first nine
months of the fiscal year,
an improvement of $4.8
million from the same pe-
riod of the prior year.
The hospital's oncology
program has reported net
income of $2.3 million
for the first nine months
of the fiscal year and is
seeing more than 2,700
new patients annually.
Operating expenses were
reduced by $4.2 million
for the nine-month period
as a result of manage-
ment's continued empha-
sis on efficiency.
"While we have reduced
expenses, we have not
compromised our quality
of care," Fedele empha-
sized. "I'm most proud

Possible GOP presidential candidate

Santorum slams Obama during speech

By Dale M. King

political leaders got a
good look at the two sides
of former Pennsylvania
U.S. Senator Rick San-
torum during his recent
visit to Boca Raton.
During a mid-day lunch
at the Grille on Congress,
the still-undecided pre-
sidential hopeful offered
his gentle side to a se-
lect crowd of community
leaders, talking about his
seven children and his
return to politics from a
2007 re-election loss.
But he pulled out the stops
that night at the Boca Ra-
ton Marriott when the he
blasted President Barack
Obama for alienating the
nations still friendly with
the United States, atta-
cking state policies while
wooing less-than-friendly
foreign leaders, and for
putting the USA on a
road to "Armageddon" by
weakening its military ar-
senal while Iran beefs up
its nuclear capabilities.
"The most dangerous thing
he is doing," Santorum
told members of the Boca
Raton Republican Club,
"is not stopping Iran from
getting nuclear weapons
or the missiles to deploy

approach to Iran, Santo-
rum said that with help
from the Russians, Iran
can create a nuclear force
"that neither we nor Israel
will be able to take out."

reign to rain terror on the
world," the former Key-
stone State senator said
in a resoundingly loud
voice. "He is risking Ar-

who had seen his kinder

BOCA begins

budget prep with

revenue down,

expenses up
By Dale M. King up.

mer in Boca Raton brings
flowers, beachgoers, tour-
ists and the preparation
of a budget for the coming
fiscal year.
That task has already
begun, Mayor Susan
Whelchel told members
of the Federation of Boca
Raton Homeowners As-
sociations at its recent
meeting. And the playing
field is just as rough as the
past few years, with rev-
enue down and expenses

Creation of a balanced
budget a necessity, ac-
cording to state law was
one of several top pri-
orities to come out of re-
cent goal-setting sessions,
Whelchel said. She sees
the city looking for new
revenues while also fac-
ing cutbacks.
She said that in January,
estimates for the 2010-
2011 tax year showed a
10 to 11 percent drop in
revenue as the city moves
into July.
Whelchel also noted that

Mayor Susan Whelchel talks about city issues with member
of the Federation of Boca Raton Homeowners Associations
at a recent in,. 1.i

City Manager LeifAhnell
has predicted the city will
finish the current fiscal
year with a tax base re-
duced by $2 billion, from
about $20 billion several
years ago to a $17 billion
Also, cuts of some $5 to
$7 million will have to be
made in the upcoming city
budget. Whelchel said she
hopes the city can retain
its total workforce with-
out the cutbacks that oc-
curred several years ago
when a couple of hundred
positions were elimina-
ted, including about 42
personnel layoffs.
The new fiscal year be-
gins Oct. 1. The city nor-
mally holds budget meet-
ings in September, but
all financial sessions are
open to the public.
One new source of cash
will come at the start of
the fiscal year in Octo-
ber. That's when nearly

400 parking meters will
go live around the down-
town, the beach and in
Mizner Park.
In the past, Ahnell has
said this should bring
in some $600,000 to
$700,000 in new money.
Annexation that is, bring
unincorporated proper-
ties west of the city into
Boca's boundaries is a-
nother potential method
of raising cash. She said
that will only be done "if
it is a positive cash flow."
She also said the city will
not annex any areas that
don't want to be part of
Boca Raton proper.
In her early morning ad-
dress to the Federation,
Whelchel touched on a
number of items that she
said help create "a sus-
tainable city."

Letters to the Editor

* t

nearly 40 years I
have spent toiling in
the news trade that
story ideas come to you
in strange and unexpected
I just came in from mo-
wing the lawn, and I don't
want you even to imagine
the sweaty, grass-stained
figure that I am as I type
these words. Luckily, the
shower is just around the
comer of the room.
It occurred to me, du-
ring this act of cutting in
90-some degree weather,
with thunderclouds for-
ming overhead, that I ha-
ve spent a lot of years,
and used a lot of diffe-
rent technologies, to slash
those little green spears
that jut from the ground.
And here I am in 2010,
using a push lawn mower.
Yes, a push mower. No
motor. No gasoline. No
decibel-shrieking buzz.
It's actually relatively
quiet and smooth.
I do get strange looks from
passers-by as I use a tech-
nology that my grandfa-
ther probably used when
he cut his grass. No, I'm

not opposed to improved
mechanics. I just figure
the lawn around our home
is pretty small, so why
spend a lot of money on
devices to control it?
Besides, a push mower
was cheaper to buy. And
I convinced my wife to
also get a weed whacker
to go along with it, so I
can now cut down those
nasty little buggers that
grow along the side of the
house, trees and the little
cement ornamental fen-
ces with ease.
Call me an anachronism
- and I'm sure the neigh-
bors probably do. (For
some, I'm sure, it's the
most polite thing they call
me.) But I've had my fill
of gas-powered mowers,
going back to the 1950s
when I cut my parents'
lawn with an old-style
Briggs & Stratton power
mower. You actually had
to wrap a clothesline a-
round the top and pull to
get it to start. And getting
it to start, I recall, took a
lot of yanks.
We had our share of rid-
ing mowers that didn't
work and one self-pro-

pelled mower that got
away from me one day
and cut a swath right into
the neighbor's yard.
My wife has gotten into
the habit of calling me
a "grumpy old man" be-
cause I seem to resist the
call of modem techno-
logy. I have a cell phone
that does nothing but take
phone calls. No pictures
(I have a camera.) No texts
(I don't know how to do
that) and no "aps."
The other day we were in
an electronics store and
she said we should buy
an IPod. Why, I said? If
I want to listen to music,
I can turn on the radio or
put on a CD.
As she walked away,
I thought I heard her
say something about a
"grumpy old man."

No, not MY wife!

Caring and sharing
The act of charity and
volunteerism are two of
the most valuable assets
a community can pos-
sess. To showcase the
dedication, caring, hard
work and achievements

of South Florida's non-
profit sector, Town Cen-
ter at Boca Raton will be

and Sharing" on Satur-

will be supplied with
chairs and a covered table
upon which they may dis-

It is only when one pauses

"When I am stressed it is
nearly always because I
am dealing with the 'what

need not be so with you
as long as you cultivate
joy and make it a perma-

Plan your happy hour

be for solitary consump-

insights or offer you new,

There are joys that come
and go, but there are also
joys that come to stay. As
a contemporary thinker
wisely put it: "The more
joyful we are, the more
attractive we become." Be
sure this represents your
posture accurately! Al-
ways choose happiness,
and plan for joy!

BOCA HOSPfTAL dedicates

waiting areas

ton Community Hospital
dedicated the Mary Ann
and Harold Perper Wai-
ting Areas in its Eugene
M. and Christine E. Lynn
Cancer Institute at a spe-
cial celebration May 19.
The event was held in
the second floor waiting
areas of the Lynn Cancer
Institute's Harvey and
Phyllis Sandler Pavilion.
The hospital was the re-
cipient of a donation
from the Perpers to name
the waiting areas, which
serve the needs of medi-
cal oncology patients at
the Lynn Cancer Institute.
Patients scheduled for
chemotherapy, or to be
seen by their oncologist,
access their medical care
through these locations.
The waiting areas have

been designed to create
surroundings that instill
a sense of comfort and
counter the anxiety a
cancer patient can expe-
rience while facing the
disease and being treated.
"The generosity of the
Perpers assists us greatly
in providing the most
sophisticated cancer care
possible," said Jan Sa-
varick, president of the
Boca Raton Community
Hospital Foundation.
"The largesse of the Per-
pers and other commu-
nity philanthropists has
made the Lynn Can-
cer Institute a national
leader in oncology."
Mary and Harold Perper
have been donors to Boca
Raton Community Hos-
pital for more than three
decades. Their gifts to the

hospital have supported
radiation/oncology servi-
ces in the Lynn Cancer
Institute, nursing pro-
grams and scholarships,
maternity services and the
Hospital's Care Center.
The Perpers are also long-
time patrons of the arts,
and have supported the
Boca Raton Museum of
Art as well as Lynn Uni-
versity, Florence Fuller
Child Development Cen-
ter and Hospice by the Sea.
Highlighting the evening
was an exhibition of
fine art photography by
artist Alan S. Maltz. His
art has been featured in
leading national and re-
gional publications such
as The New Yorker, The
Miami Herald and News-
day. His works also grace
private and public col-
lections throughout the
world including the Cart-
er Center and Presidential
Library, the Ritz Carlton
in St. Thomas and the
American Airlines Are-
na in Miami. Maltz has
gifted the exhibition to the
Lynn Cancer Institute.
"The Lynn Cancer Ins-
titute was specifically
designed to exude both
a sense of clinical com-
petence and a progres-
sive healing environment
through the use of open
space, natural light, water
displays and important-
ly, fine art," said Phillip
Smith, MD, medical di-
rector for the Lynn Can-
cer Institute. "The gift of
such prestigious works
by Mr. Maltz will great-
ly enhance the unique
atmosphere of care we
have established for pa-
tients and their loved
ones at the Institute."

Predictor of the

future SYLVIA

BROWNE scores

with crowd at


Sylvia Browne wal-
ked into a crowded
room of middle-
aged women looking for
answers and enlighten-
ment. The crowd was vi-
sibly excited to check out
this mistress of mysteries
who has written more than
50 books.
It was fitting that a wo-
man known for predicting
the future and seeing the
paranormal would show
up in a place where an-
swers lie in the foggy na-
ture of jackpots and near
misses (The Seminole Ca-
sino Coconut Creek).
But isn't that the way life
is these days? You either
hit the jackpot (meet the
man or woman of your
dreams) or get a pink slip
from an employer you
could swear was your fra-
ternal twin.
Perhaps it is the uncer-
tainty of life that has
many people (especially
women) longing for an-
swers. And who doesn't
like to see the future in
black and white or living
That's why the room was

packed to the rafters with
spiritual types and those
who just wanted to know,
"When will I find love?"
Browne, who claims to
have a two-year waiting
list to give psychic rea-
dings, talked about the
impending Florida hur-
ricanes. It's going to be a
bad hurricane season, but
not a terrible one." She
also said we have death
all backwards. "When we
leave we come into life,
right now we are ghosts."
Browne may be a ghost,
but she is a lucky one. Her
newest husband, whom she
met at a jewelry store in
California, was selling
spiritually divined je-
welry and looking pretty
svelte and tan (she is ru-
mored to have been mar-
ried five times).
But it was interesting to
listen to the diva of di-
vinity say, "If you don't
go through hardships,
how do you learn? After
all the bad things happen
something good comes,
but most people don't see
it because they're feeling

Browne, who has been
a spiritual teacher for 55
years, told the crowd to
love God and do good.
"You can ask God for
anything and it will come
to you."
The Goddess of gravity
was perched on a yellow
velvet chair and had be-
witching long gold nails
with sparkling gold shoes.
If you didn't know better
you might think she was
flown in on a Magic Car-
Browne chatted about lo-
ve, life and God when she
blurted out, "Aren't you
sick of cheaters like Tiger
Woods and Jessie James?
Why do we need to know
She also told us not to
be in the body, but to be
above the body. But being

above one's body must
entail nutrition as well.
"You must eat protein,
fruits and veggies (Dr.
Oz's mantra) but sugar
is the biggest health ha-
zard," she added.
Browne was adamant a-

bout keeping good com-
pany. "You re not sup-
posed to love everyone,
people who drain you or
are depressed, don't see
them." On a brighter note
she told us that our angels
are with us and so are our

departed loved ones -"you
are not alone."
The solution for depres-
sion, Browne said, is to
get off the couch and do
something, help someone
or write. After her worldly
and outer-worldly advice
(when you die you go
through a death tunnel and
then the Hall of Justice),
we did a meditation pic-
turing ourselves bathed in
white light, gold light and
green light.
The crowd was mute until
Browne announced that she
was taking questions from
the audience. The que-
ries varied from, "When
will my daughter get a
boyfriend," (at Christmas
time), "When will I meet
the man of my dreams?"
(Five years) to which the
woman moaned, "Oh no,
five years?" The funniest
question was, "I want to
know about my love life,"
to which Browne replied,
"What love life?"
It was a night of queries
and quandaries, with some
taking home a bag of tid-
bits about current affairs
and God's master plan.
But, as Browne reminded
us, you have to take the
good with the bad. "I lost
my eyesight but gained a

HealthGrades', the leading independent healthcare ratings organization, has ranked
Boca Raton Community Hospital #1 for cardiac surgery in the state of Florida in
2010. According to their study, patients having bypass or valve surgery at 3RCH
have a lower risk for adverse clinical outcomes relative to all other hospitals.

The National Cardiac Database also rates BRCH in the top 9% of programs in the
country. Over 90% of our open-heart procedures are performed off-pump. That
means a reduced risk of stroke, kidney failure and infection for patients.
Plus, a faster recovery.

If you or a loved one is in need of advanced, specialized cardiac care, talk to your
doctor about Boca Raton Community Hospital

BP Disaster Information Session at Boynton

Beach provides solutions for the oil spill
By Luana Gonaalves

A BP oil disaster informa-
tional session was held at
the Boynton Beach Inlet
Park on Tuesday night
to raise public awareness
on the crisis and issues a
call-to-action to citizens
to hold those responsible
Approximately 50 people
showed up to the informa-
tion session from all over
Palm Beach County.
The session started with
the host Allan Hendricks,
a Palm Beach County
Meet-up Organizer, pass-
ing out flyers with a list of
websites that are tracking

It's not a Gulf of Mex-
ico oil spill, it's a BP oil
spill," said Hendricks at
the opening of the session.
Hendricks informs that
there are 330 meetings
happening across the na-
tion to solve the oil spill
issue, and there are people
uniting in Jupiter and Del-
ray Beach as well. He also
mentions that the people
need to hold BP account-
able, let Palm Beach offi-
cials know that the public
are paying attention to the
crisis in the Gulf Coast,
and figure out why the
problem manifested in the
first place.

By Pastor Sandy

"Learning To Deal With Stress"

Someone once said,
"Life is a race which
is run uphill all
the way." In other
words we cannot
live life without
encountering stress
along the way.
Stress has now
been labeled by Pr.
the medical profession as
the leading cause of psy-
chosomatic illness, evi-
denced in such symptoms
as headache, tension, skin
disease, asthma, ulcers,
high blood pressure, and
heart attacks to name just
a few.
Just as we all live under
the pull of gravity, so do
all of us live under the
downward pull of stress.
Some are pulled to the
ground in defeat. Others
have developed a strategy
and the skills not only to
survive but to thrust be-
yond it and conquer the
outer reaches.
As is true with all of life's
problems, Scripture pro-
vides a clear perspective
as to how to deal with
stress. Genesis, the first
book of the Bible, reveals
that stress, literally de-
fined as "being pulled in
opposite directions at the
same time" was a result
of the disobedience and
self-will of the first hu-
mans, Adam and Eve, and
the subsequent repetitive
behavior in their children.
Here are simple admoni-
tions to help us deal with
the stresses of life.

It is impossible to cruise

through life without en-
countering conflict or be-
ing offended. Some
personal conflicts
are caused; oth-
ers are unavoid-
able, but in either
case they must be
addressed. Scrip-
,ndy ture encourages us
(Matt. 18.15) to lovingly,
graciously and honestly
address the issue with the
purpose of resolving the
conflict. Problems don't
just disappear... they
must be addressed and
the sooner the better.

Dr. John Bratner, a psy-
chologist at the Univer-
sity of Minnesota, lists
five physical factors that
promote survival. They
are (1) telling your trou-
bles to others, (2) making
new friends, (3) avoiding
depression, (4) keeping
physically active and (5)
pursuing a cause. Sounds
very similar to what the
Apostle Paul wrote in
(Gal.6.2) "bear each o-
ther's burdens." God has
designed us as social crea-
tures who need each other.
Internalizing our problems
accomplishes nothing.

Every great athlete or mu-
sician understands achie-
vement comes only after
days, weeks, months and
even years of pain, stress,
and hard work. The sta-
mina, courage, resolve,
fortitude or determination
that drives such individu-


als is the understanding that
the end result is worth the
pain. Again the Apostle
Paul writes, "we can re-
joice, too, when we run
into problems and trials,
for we know that they
help us develop endu-
rance... and endurance
develops strength of char-
acter." (Rom. 5.3-4)

In the 1976 Summer
Olympics, Vasili Alexeev
of Russia determined to
set a new world weight-
lifting record of 562
pounds. He stepped to the
bar, cleaned it to his shoul-
ders, paused for balance
and then jerked it over
his head. His muscles
snapped and strained to
hold the weight. The dan-
ger factor was high, but
he held the weight in the
air for the qualifying sec-
onds and then the judge
lowered his hands and
Alexeev stepped back,
allowing the weights to
crash to the floor.
There are times when
the crushing load of life,
like weights, is impossible
to carry very long. It is
at these times we must
do what another biblical
writer encourages us to
do, "give all your worries
and cares to God, for he
cares about you." (1 Peter

Portions of the damages

are marital, and would

Your lawyer in the per-

problem, as he now has
two clients at odds, a con-

He also has an obliga-

that any settlement must
carefully break down

it might all be marital.
You, your wife, and the

will use your animosity
to reduce your award or
defeat your cases.

World Cup Sticker Album Craze!
By Pedro Heizer

For as long as I can re-
member, when it was
time for the World Cup,
it was also time for
the World cup Sticker
Album. I know for a
fact that it's not a huge
thing in the U.S, but in
Brazil, it's a phenome-
non. Kids hurry to the
newsstands to purcha-
se these packs of 8
stickers that have a
variety of cards. They
are a mix of players,
Countries emblems, and
special stickers that are
related to the world up.
What one would do is
try the best he could
to collect them all. For
every country in the
Cup, there are about 15
players, a team picture,
and the country's em-
blem. It's a little game
that kids loved to play
and when I saw Wal-
greens selling them this
year for the 2010 World
Cup, I was super ex-
cited and bought it. The
album itself is cheap,
$1.99. The packs of 8
stickers are 99 cents.
Very cheap as long as
you aren't one of those
people that like to look
at the big picture and
say how much money
you lose if you buy 20
Although the World
Cup sticker isn't huge
in the US, in many o-
ther countries it's not
only a sticker album
but it's a tradition.
Many families buy the-
se albums and spend
countless hours trying
to fill the album with
every single sticker. In
places like Bolivia and
Brazil, they have mer-
chants that not only sell

the pack with 8 stickers, but they also sell specific
stickers like an emblem you might be needing or
a player you are missing. There are two ways to
get your hands on the cards you need, one way is
simple, just buy the packs in hope to fill the holes
in your sticker book. The other is by trading your
duplicates with other people or these merchants in
the hope of completing your album.
I personally have never completed an album. I
started doing the World Cup albums in 1998 for
the World Cup in France. I never finished that one.
Then 2002 I also came up short, in 2006 I didn't
even buy an album and now in 20101 want to final-
ly complete and album. There is a certain amount
of satisfaction that I can't explain once you com-
plete a sticker album or when you rip open a pack
and that smell of fresh brand new cards is present
and you find a sticker you have been coveting.

Hometown Heroes:

Jozy Altidore

By: Pedro Heizer

In 1998, David Beckham
played in his first World
Cup, Ronaldinho was
tearing up the Brazilian
league with the skills that
soon would make him a
World superstar, and Jozy
Altidore was eight years
When Altidore was in ele-
mentary school, he was
toying with children at lo-
cal parks. Josef Schulz, a
longtime youth coach in
Boca Raton, took note of
Altidore when he was 8
years old. He was playing
a pickup game at Boca's
South County Regional
Park and was amazed.
"I could not believe his
maturity for a player his
age," Schulz said. "I'm
from Europe. Soccer is
my profession. I know
what 8-year-olds nor-
mally look like, and Jozy
was different. He had an
awareness other kids his
age don't have. I told his
father, 'I see something
in your son, and I think
someday he could make
the national team.' His
dad laughed."
At 15, Altidore left home
for the U.S. Soccer Resi-
dency Program in Bra-
denton, FL. But, during
that time not many knew
about Jozy Altidore be-
cause of his counterpart,
Freddy Adu. "The big hy-
pe at that time was Freddy
Adu, but I told people,
'By the time they are 18,
19, 20, Adu will be for-
gotten, and Jozy will still
be around," Schultz said.
Unlike Adu, who drew
immediate fame as
America's next big thing
in soccer at age 14, Al-
tidore stayed under the
radar as a prospect until
he was 16 when he was
drafted by the New York
MetroStars (now the New
York Red Bulls) of Major
League Soccer with the
17th overall pick in the

2006 MLS SuperDraft.
He impressed immedia-
tely in his rookie cam-
paign scoring three goals
in seven games. Two
years later, Spanish club
Villarreal thought enough
of the prodigy to pay $10
million for his rights, an
MLS-record fee. At 19,
he became the youngest
player to score for the
U.S. national team.
Just because he was a
Major League Soccer
star, didn't mean that
it came without pains.
"When I was first ap-
proached by MLS, my
mother was not too fond
of the idea of me playing
professional soccer right
away. She thought it's
more important to get an
education than to pursue
personal goals, like athle-
tics." said Altidore. But,
he continued school and
received his High School
Diploma and was also a
star in Major League Soc-
"All I wanted was for
my children to go to col-
lege," His mother said.
"I love school, love col-
lege sports. Look at [ten-
nis player] John Isner. He

went to college and is
now playing pro. That's
what I planned for Jozy.
He was getting letters
from many colleges. My
first choice was UCLA.
But he kept telling me,
'Mama, I'm going pro-
fessional.' I thought it
was a bad idea, but my
husband had a long talk
with me and convinced
me it was the right thing
for Jozy. He was different
from the other kids."
Let's fast-forward to
2010; Jozy Altidore is
one of the X-Factors for
the U.S National team. It
seems like it was just yes-
terday that Josef Schulz
was taking a walk around
South County Regional
Park here in Boca and
he saw one of the grea-
test eight year old play.
Schulz talked to the pa-
rents, convinced them
to bring their soon-to-
be superstar son to play
with him in the Schulz
Academy here in Boca
Raton. And from then on,
the rest is history. We are
witnessing a hometown
hero in the flesh, Jozy Al-
tidore, striker for the US
National Team.

Fans pack the stands for the final round of this year s Allianz Championship held in February.

Allianz tourney to stay in Boca;

director eyes 10-year term

By Dale M. King

eyeballing a couple of
other golf courses, offi-
cials of the Allianz Golf
Championship have de-
cided to stay in Boca for
at least two more years
and, hopefully, as long as
10 years.
Since it arrived four years
ago, the annual tourney
held in February has put
Boca Raton on the in-
ternational golf map by
drawing some of the top
players in the game along
with well-known locals
to The Old Course at Bro-
ken Sound.
Not only has the popu-
lar tournament helped
the city financially, but it
raises money each year
for Boca Raton Commu-
nity Hospital.
"We were looking at sev-
eral other courses," Tour-
nament Director Ryan Di-
llon told the Boca Raton
Tribune. Since its con-
tract with the city expired
this year, he felt it was a
good time to check other
"Like any other business,
when you have a chance,
you look around."

But in the end, he said,
tournament officials de-
cided to say in Boca.
"We stayed because of
the success we have had,"
he said. "Now is not the
time to move on."
One thing that kicked up
attendance at this year's
fourth annual event was
free admission, he said.
That was made possible
by support from the city
of Boca Raton, Allianz
Life Insurance Company
of North America and
"Giving back is the right
thing to do," Dillon said
at the time. "Having re-
ceived such tremendous
support from fans and
corporate partners over
the past four years, we,
the city of Boca Raton,
Allianz Life and our other
sponsors are thrilled that
we have an opportunity
to say thank you and pro-
vide this free gift to golf
fans, their friends, family
and colleagues."
Fans were able to pur-
chase upgraded seats.
Dillon said the free ad-
mission attracted 20,000
more viewers than the
previous year.
"We'll go it again this

year," he said.
He said the tournament
intends to re-up for two
years and hopes for an-
other three after that.
"We'd love to stay in
Boca Raton," said Dillon.
"It's been great."
The Allianz Champion-
ship is the Champions
Tour's second tourna-
ment of the early-season
Florida swing, with the
Golf Channel televising
all three rounds from The
Old Course at Broken
Sound. Competing for the
tournament purse of well
over a million dollars.
This year's event inclu-
ded such legends of golf
as Bernhard Langer, the
Boca Raton resident who
won the prize with a dra-
matic finish an eagle 3
on the first playoff hole to
beat John Cook.
The 2011 tournament will
run from Feb. 7 to Feb.
13, with the final round
scheduled to begin at 10
a.m. Feb. 13. There will
be three rounds of play,
all of them televised on
the Golf Channel.

Joga Bonito: The Beautiful Game I

By: Pedro Heizer and
Stefano Tinucci Tozzi

With the World Cup upon
us, I believe that it is time
to talk about places in
which we can all enjoy
and take in the Cup. In
our first installment we
talked about a little his-
tory about the World Cup
and what it means to the
world. In the second in-
stallment, we talkedabout
the importance of the
World Cup to the United
States. In this third part,
we will talk about a few
places that you can enjoy
the World Cup. We have
places for you to go that
range from the regular
American "Bru Room",
to the exotic "Portugalia
Restaurant". Hopefully,
you can watch the world
cup in one of these great
places mentioned below
and have a terrific time.
We will begin the article
with "Bru Room Sports
Grill" in Coconut Creek...
The World Cupis such a
transcendent event
that even in these
United States, where
soccer is merely a niche
sport, soccer fever has
taken hold and American
establishments are pul-
ling out all the stops to put
on wonderful host parties
for all their patrons want-
ing to enjoy what pro-
mises to be a remarkable
World Cup. "Go USA!"
declares "Bru's Room
Sports Grill" of Coconut
Creek manager Ryan Pel-
perdang. "Bru's Room" is
an impressive sports grill
which boasts 7 different
locations in both Palm
Beach and Broward coun-
ties and the local chain is
run by general manager
Eric Hammond. As you
enter the "Bru's Room"
in Coconut Creek, the lo-
cation I visited, you are
greeted by World Cup
decorations on the walls.
And national team jerseys

hung at the restaurant's
main entrance. "Bru's
Room" is ready for South
Africa 2010. In my con-
versation with manager
Pelperdang he revealed
that through, "June 11th
to the 29th we will be
opening an hour earlier
at 10am instead of 11am
(the time they usually o-
pen)", to accommodate
his Cup watching cus-
tomers. A visit to "Bru's
Room" will make evident
how thoroughly prepared
the establishment is for
the event with 72" Hi Def
televisions, raffles that
give away commemora-
tive soccer balls, $1 shot
specials whenever a goal
is scored, etc... This is
definitely the place to be
for the total soccer expe-
rience, Pelperdang pro-
bably said it best when
he stated, "I'm more of
an American football fan
but this comes around
only once every 4 years
and it's a big deal and we
also have international pa-
trons". American or not
"Bru's Room" is ready for
the world's biggest sport-
ing event.
Looking for a more tradi-
tional World Cup experi-
ence? Immerse yourself
in a 19th century English
pub in downtown Del-
ray Beach on historic
Atlantic Avenue. "The
Blue Anchor", right on
the Intracoastal and just
a stone's throw from the
beach, on the surface ap-
pears to be a "square peg,
in a round hole", as in a
establishment more fit-
ting of a foggy London
night than South Florida
coastline. But it works
beautifully, as tradition
and sun find a happy ba-
lance in this cozy pub.
Everything about "The
Blue Anchor" screams
authenticity, from the
menu which features such
fare as "Bangers & Mash"
and "Roast Lamb & York-
shire Pudding" and beers

imported from the Home
Nations to the imposing
English oak front doors.
This is the place to be if
you are looking for the
right accommodations
to support Fabio Capel-
lo's "Three Lions". Pub
owner Michelle Harrison
is very upbeat about the
entire event assuring cos-
tumers that, "it will be
fabulous and there will
be huge crowds as games
will be shown on a 8-foot
screen". Harrison also
noted that her establish-
ment will "open for the 10
o'clock games and some
7:30 affairs", so potential
customers can have the
confidence in knowing
that "The Blue Anchor"
will be a venue singularly
dedicated to this sum-
mer's World Cup.
Looking for a more "La-
tin" touch? With South
Florida being one of the
United States' biggest
hotbeds of Spanish-spea-
king peoples and with
all of them being soccer
mad, this is a partner-
ship forged in heaven.
On busy Federal High-
way in Deerfield Beach
one will find a little slice
of Mexico in the form of
"Yucatan Mexican Bar &
Grill". And inside this lit-
tle quaint cantina one can
expect authentic Mexi-
can cuisine to be served
to quell the appetite for
food and soccer. The
"Yucatan" is run by Mel
Saenz and he emphati-
cally affirms that his bar
will show every game of
the competition; the ex-
perience comes complete
with $2 Miller, $3 Coro-
na, and $5 Tequila shots
drink specials to get a
good daytime buzz whilst
one absorbs all the soc-
cer action. Strewn about
the "Yucatan" is a bevy
of television sets hung off
stanchions which allows
for a 3600 view of all the
games, but the kicker is
the large projector which




will be set up in the west wing of the bar to give gr
amplitude to the competition's contests.
Portuguese-speaking alternatives are also availab
the area. In Boca Raton, nestled in a tiny plaza
State Rd 7 (441) is where Marco Dombrowski, o
of "Picanha Brazil", runs his business. Friends of
Boca Raton Tribune, "Picanha Brazil" offers a far


environment not just to
watch World Cup mat-
ches but also just to take
the family out for a fill-
ing lunchtime churrasco
by the pound. Two screen
projectors are set in place
inside of the restaurant,
one facing north, the other
south, with an active buf-
fet line in the backdrop.
Dombrowski will not
open earlier for games
will open regularly at
11am except for Brazil
matches. As he himself
says, "I will show all the
games after 11am but will
open my doors earlier for
early Brazil games, my
eater feed will be the ESPN
Deportes feed (usually a
le in Spanish-speaking chan-
ilong nel but due to contrac-
wner tual obligations will be

nilial matches in Portuguese)

as they will have Brazil-
ian announcers". So come
and cheer on the Selecao
in this welcoming envi-
For the European Portu-
guese-speaking option
Jodo Tavares' "Portu-
galia Restaurant" is per-
fect. Located on Atlantic
Boulevard between 1-95
and US 1 it's tiny but
personable, "Portugalia
Restaurant". This option
is certainly not for those
in search of a party en-
vironment, it is a more
laid-back atmosphere in
which you can catch all
the games. As one enters
the "Portugalia" you are
greeted by one very at-
tractive fish tank which
serves as the midpoint be-
tween "Portugalia's" bar
area and restaurant space.
The lighting is very dim

(again, very laid-back)
but the second you take
your seat at the bar you
feel almost instantaneous-
ly relaxed and at home.
Tavares says that he will
broadcast "every game"
and he will, "open my
doors at 10am and there
will be game-time snacks
and game-time happy
hour ($1 domestic, $2 im-
ported)". A hyped Tavares
excitedly shouts, "Bring a
Portuguese shirt!", as he
hopes for a good showing
at this year's World Cup
out of his beloved Portu-
gal and for many custom-
ers in his new "Portugalia
