The Osceola Astros were a Houston minor league farm
team based in Kissimmee in Osceola County, Fla. Then
they were renamed for Kissimmee and changed their name
to the Cobras. Why? Because otherwise being the Kissim-
mee Astros would have been hilarious. The Cobras, by the
way, won the Florida State League championship in 1999.

Returning to yesterday's theme of terrible original band
names, Aerosmith was originally called the Hookers until
drummer Joey Kramer mashed two words he liked. Don't
you forget about Johnny and the Self-Abusers -- they
became Simple Minds. And Brian May formed Smile, a
badly named band that adopted a mildly less bad name in
1970 when they became Queen.

Boca police nab suspect wl

woman who was putting a
S to get change for the air
pump. The victim said the
male suspect followed her


Raton police recently ar-
rested a suspect for al-
legedly robbing a woman
while she was putting air
in her tires at a West Yam-
ato Road service station.
The suspect, Nicholas
Koliopoulos, was charged
with grand theft and with
robbery by force, vio-
lence, assault, or putting
in fear. Anyone with in-
formation about this case
is asked to contact Detec-
tive Suarez at 561- 620-
The woman told police
she pulled into the station

into the store and back out
to the air pump. She said
that she knelt down to put
air in her tire and placed
her wallet on the ground
next to her.
Police said the male
grabbed her wallet and
jumped into his car in an
attempt to flee. The vic-
tim ran after the suspect,
opened the front door to
his car and after a brief
struggle, was able to get
her wallet back. The vic-
tim then ran into the store
to call the police as the
suspect fled.
About an hour earlier,
officers responded to a
residence on NW 2nd
Avenue. The caller said
that when he let his dog
out, it was alerted by an
unknown man on the side

ho robbed

ir in tires
of his house. When the
resident confronted him,
he said he was looking
for pills. When the man
went back into the house,
he looked out the window
and saw the man entering
the car of a neighbor. The
resident confronted the
suspect who apologized
and left the area.
Investigators were able to
link the two incidents to
Nicolas Koliopoulos, who
resides on NW Second
Avenue in Boca Raton. In-
vestigators located a green
car matching the descrip-
tion given by the victim
from the service station.
Investigators used security
camera video from the sta-
tion to confirm that Kolio-
poulos was at the air pump
and inside the store near
the victim. The video also
shows the victim running
back inside to call police.

County to post tar ball

warnings at beaches; 500

signs ordered, says Abrams

The Board of County Com-
missioners has decided to
post signs in coastal areas
warning of tar balls or other
evidence of the Gulf oil
Commissioners received
an update from county
emergency management
and environmental offi-
cials June 29 concerning
the oil spill's potential
impact on Palm Beach
District 4 Commissioner
Steven Abrams said the
Board "also discussed the
county's recent initiative
to install signage on lo-
cal beaches to inform the
public with procedural in-

formation if they spot any
tar balls or other evidence
of oil. The county has or-
dered approximately 500
signs and they will be dis-
tributed to local coastal
municipalities for instal-
lation at their discretion."
He said the county "does
not plan to install any
signage at county owned
and/or operated beaches
unless it is determined
that oil balls/mats have
entered the loop current.
Other information re-
ceived June 29 from the
county's Deepwater Hori-
zon Task Force included:
* Eight tar balls have been
found along the county's
shoreline to date and none

originated from the oil
* Weather forecasts show
that winds and currents
are preventing eastward
movement of the oil
plume along the north-
west Florida coastline.
No significant amounts of
oil are within or moving
toward the loop current
and there is no indication
that the county would
experience any influx of
tar balls/mats in the next
* Florida straits are being
monitored for tar balls/
mats entering the eastern
coastal loop current. If
there is any indication
of any weathered oil, the

The resident came home
to find her house had been

and then entered the house
by prying open a rear slid-
ing glass door.
Once inside, said Boonen-
berg, the burglar stole two
flat screen televisions and
a cordless drill.
She said the suspect left

blood in four different
locations throughout the
house, including drops
left on the family dog.
Crime Scene Technician
Jason Neitz collected the
evidence and submitted it
to the Palm Beach County
Sheriff's Office forensics
unit for DNA analysis.
On June 6, Detective
Ronald Mello, who was
assigned to the case, re-
ceived notification that the

Abrams retains commission seat;

Sachs, Perman win without opposition

Steven Abrams

By Dale M. King

Three candidates for of-
fice in the Boca Raton
area are breathing a sigh
of relief today. Because
no one filed nomination
papers to run against
them, they have "won"
their offices.
Two politicians are mov-
ing up. District 86 State
Rep. Maria Lorts Sachs, a
Delray Beach Democrat,
has won the District 30
State Senate seat.
Also, Steve Perman, a
West Boca Raton chiro-
practor, is the new state
representative in District
District 4 County Com-
missioner Steven Abrams
keeps his seat for lack of
a challenger. There are
races in Commission Dis-
tricts, 2, 6 and 7 later this
"I am honored to repre-
sent the district, and to be
returned to office," said
Abrams, who served for
seven years as mayor of
Boca Raton. "It has been
a productive term, and I
look forward to return-
Known for his quips,
Abrams added: "I have

run opposed and I have
run unopposed. Guess
which one is better."
Abrams was appointed to
the Palm Beach County
Board of Commission-
ers by Gov. Charlie Crist
in 2009 to replace Mary
McCarty, who was con-
victed of honest services
fraud and sentenced to
five years in jail.
The former Boca mayor,
who left that seat in 2008
due to term limits, also
served five terms as a City
Council member in Boca
Raton from 1989 to 1999
and was a member of the
city's Planning and Zon-
ing Board between 1987
and 1989.
In the meantime, Perman
gets ready to take over the
seat he has sought for sev-
eral years. He succeeds
Kevin Rader, who is run-
ning for the Lake Worth-
Greenacres area State
Senate seat currently held
by David Aronberg.
Aronberg is also looking
to move up and is running
for the attorney general's
seat being vacated by Bill
McCollum, who is run-
ning for governor.
Active in the commu-
nity, Perman is a long-

time member and past
president of the Boca
Raton Rotary Sunset
Club, where he was
named "Rotarian of the
Year" in 1999. He was
named "Chiropractor of
the Year" in 2005 by the
Florida Chiropractic As-
Sachs, first elected to the
District 86 State Rep. seat
in 2006, succeeding Anne
Gannon when she became
county tax collector, is an
attorney by trade and is
also married to an attor-
ney, Peter Sachs, head of
Sachs, Sax & Caplan, lo-
cated in Boca Raton.
She will take over the
currently vacant seat of
former State Senator Ted
Deutch, who was chosen
in a special election this
year to succeed former
U.S. Rep. Robert Wexler
in congressional district
19. Wexler stepped down
to take a job with a Wash-
ington think tank.
Sachs is a graduate of the
University of Maryland
and Boston University,
and has a juris doctorate
degree from the Univer-
sity of Miami. She and

Emergency care at BRCH rated in top

5 percent of hospitals nationally

Raton Community Hospi-
tal's emergency medicine
care has been found to be
among the top 5 percent
in the nation, according to
a new study released by
HealthGrades, the leading
independent healthcare rat-
ings organization.
As a result, BRCH has re-
ceived the HealthGrades
2010 Emergency Medi-
cine Excellence AwardTM.
Of the 4,900 hospitals ex-
amined for their mortal-
ity rates in 11 of the most
common conditions for
Medicare patients associ-
ated with emergency med-
icine, only 255 received
this award.
As a group, Boca Raton
Community Hospital and
the other award recipients
had a 39 percent lower
mortality rate for the 11
conditions studied. The
mortality rates were risk-
adjusted so that hospitals
with sicker and older pa-
tients could be compared
on equal footing with oth-
er hospitals.
"Boca Raton Community
Hospital diagnoses and
treats more than 42,000
emergency patients a
year," said Jerry J. Fe-
dele, president and CEO
at Boca Raton Commu-
nity Hospital. "We are
proud to be the recipient
of HealthGrades 2010
Emergency Medicine Ex-
cellence Award. It is tes-
timony to our long-stand-

ing tradition of providing
our community superior
emergency medicine."
The latest accolade adds
to a growing list of hon-
ors. HealthGrades ranked
BRCH in the top 5 per-
cent nationally, earning
it the 2010 Distinguished
Hospitals for Clinical
Excellence. The hospital
was ranked #1 in Florida
for cardiac surgery, #2 in
Florida for the treatment
of stroke, #3 in Florida
for overall cardiac ser-
vices and #1 in Florida
for gastrointestinal medi-
cal treatment. In addition,
the hospital received the
2010-2011 HealthGrades
Women's Health Excel-
lence Award.
The study used 5 million
Medicare patient records
from 2006, 2007 and 2008
to analyze mortality rates
in the following proce-
dures: bowel obstruction,
chronic obstructive pul-
monary disease, diabetic
acidosis and coma, gas-
trointestinal bleed, heart
attack, pancreatitis, pneu-
monia, pulmonary embo-
lism, respiratory failure,
sepsis and stroke.
Hospitals in the top 5
percent improved their
patient outcomes in these
11 conditions, 16 percent
during the time period
studied, compared with
a 1 percent improvement
for all other hospitals in
the U.S.
"With the CDC showing

that 50 percent of hospital
admissions are now be-
ginning with emergency
rooms visits, it's more
important than ever for
hospitals to reach the level
of excellence achieved by
those in the top 5 percent
of this study," said Rick
May MD, a vice president
with HealthGrades and
co-author of the study.
"Those living in a com-
munity with a top 5 percent
hospital in emergency med-
icine should feel extremely
confident that, should an
emergency arise, they will
receive top-notch care."
Boca Raton Community
Hospital has instituted a
number of technologies
and services that are keep-
ing the hospital in the van-
guard of emergency medi-
cine, officials said.
The Hospital's Lifenet
Bluetooth cellular tech-
nology sends real-time
12-lead snapshots of the
heart and its functions
from the EMS field to the
Emergency Department
allowing doctors to eval-
uate the heart prior to the
patient's arrival.
The Emergency Depart-
ment meets the American
Heart Association's 60
to 90 minutes door-to-
balloon time in more than
75 percent of heart attack
patients. Fewer than one-
third of hospitals meet this

Hot dog eating competition had Boca Raton on a roll

Perhaps overlooked in the
flurry of activity this long
Fourth of July weekend
was the annual Nathan's
Famous Hot Dog Eating
competition at Coney Is-
land, N.Y
Seems the winner, a slim,
128-pound defending
champion named Joey
"Jaws" Chestnut, downed
54 hot dogs and rolls to win
his fourth title in a row.
What rankled this year's
hot dog derby was the be-
havior of a would-be con-
testant, Takeru Kobayas-
hi, who apparently went
crazy during the awards

from my other daily paper I receive at hom.
Keep up the good work! You made me a fan of The

Dealing With Difficult People

Living in the
world entails in-
teractions with
several people,
in a variety of
situations and
for multiple rea-
sons. Among
those we encounter, and
have dealings with, there
is no question some per-
sons will be difficult and
It is almost inevitable
that anywhere, anytime,
any one will encounter
individuals who may be
classified as a "one-man
grievance committee al-
ways in session." These
are people perpetually
dissatisfied with some-
thing, and if there is noth-
ing around to displease
them, they will quickly
create a situation that can
enable them to spew their
venom on others, and
dwell in negativity.
However unpleasant this
is, many persons cannot
fully escape such reality
and challenge. And one
resolves it not by running
away from the conflict but

by seeking better
ways of construc-
tively dealing with
it. As author Ca-
vett Robert views
it, "many can learn
to manage things
only but a few be-
come proficient in man-
aging people."
While we shall face some
situations beyond our
ability to resolve, I am
convinced that most peo-
ple problems, anywhere,
can be corrected. To that
end we need to give time,
exercise patience, mani-
fest wisdom, and gradual-
ly reach the best possible
The natural human ten-
dency is to avoid the
people who are antago-
nistic, or those who actu-
ally have caused us harm.
Perhaps the best way is to
seek them out and deter-
mine what is wrong, and
take the necessary steps
toward a sound resolu-
tion. Even when things
ultimately don't work out
to our full satisfaction, we
shall still retain a sense

of peace for having done
what is proper and right.
So much that causes con-
flict is often a misunder-
standing, and that can be
corrected through dia-
logue. On the other hand,
if we show no interest and
if we ignore the person
and the problem, the con-
flict may augment, thus
causing permanent harm
to many.
Although there will al-
ways be relationships and
situations we shall need
to mend, sometimes we
can make our own life
easier by the personal
interest we consistently
show towards people and
through the motivation
we offer to them. Like in
any interaction, someone
has to make the first move
and we can, and perhaps
should, be the ones to
take that initiative both to
avoid as well as to correct
For quite some time I
have been attempting to
practice the sound coun-
sel from the famous Ger-
man poet, Goethe: "Treat

people as if they were
what they ought to be and
you help them to become
what they are capable of
Our common challenge
is to keep our speech
seasoned with salt, and
our whole lives as fully
reflective of loving, posi-
tive qualities at work in
and through us. Although
this is much easier done
when nobody is adversely
affecting our nerves, that
posture needs to charac-
terize us at all times, if we
do our part in all circum-
stances we face!

Soroptimists glitter at golden

anniversary celebration

By Barbara McCormick

Members and friends of
Soroptimist International
of Boca Raton-Deerfield
Beach recently celebrated
the club's Fiftieth Anni-
versary with a social hour,
festive dinner and an instal-
lation of newly elected Of-
ficers. It was held at Brooks
Restaurant in Deerfield
Dining tables and room de-
cor reflected the glitz and
glamour of the special oc-
President Kim Champion
welcomed everyone and
introduced honored guests:
Governor Nidia Bemsteil
and Installing Officer Kathi
Kim continued by announc-
ing, "This 50th anniver-
sary is also an outstanding
reunion, as 12 of our past
presidents came to show
their continued support
of our club. We appreci-
ate their efforts in building
Soroptimist of Boca Raton
- Deerfield Beach over the
past five decades."
A nostalgic look at the his-

tory of the club, from 1960
to today, was presented by
two past presidents; Helen
Babione and Pat Reed. Hel-
en reported one of the first
important projects the club
undertook was to extend
services of The Palm Beach
County Nurses Association
from Lake Worth, down to
Boca Raton, as there were
no doctors or hospital in
Boca Raton at that time.
Helen recalled attending
many fashion shows, ga-
rage sales and theatre par-
ties which raised funds to
support local charities.
Pat Reed added," Our mis-
sion today is to raise and
donate money to financially
needy individuals and orga-
nizations, locally and inter-
nationally, for the benefit of
women and girls."
In keeping with the golden
anniversary theme, Install-
ing Officer, Kathi Pease,
presented golden jewehy,
mementos and pens to the
new slate of officers, in-
cluding: Past president Kim
Champion; Secretary, Teri
Martin; Treasurer, Cynthia
Cummings; VP of Pro-

grams, Carmen Uceda and

ela Montgomery; Co-VP's

Secretary, Connie Siskows-
ki; Lifetime Director &
Historian, Helen Babione;
Directors Maureen Burke
and Connie Gescheidt.
The grand presentation
was the placing of a gilded
crown on the head of So-
roptimist's newly elected
President Lorry Herdeen.
The awards continued, as
Connie Siskowski present-
ed Rosemary Krieger with
an honorary membership,
and Rosemary read and

Cheers and a toast were

churches have taught Vacation Bible School for the last two years at the Village of
Hope. They will be leaving on July 10th and will be teaching for a week.

13 is a preparatory year before university). Part of the Lazarus Project, Village
of Hope is an interdenominational mission sponsored by over 80 congregations
throughout the United States.
"After the earthquake, it is more important than ever to bring God's message of hope
and new life to a country devastated by systemic poverty, illness and natural disas-

Boca Children's Museum looks to past

- and future at anniversary event

Story by Dale King
and Barbara McCormick

Boca Raton Children's
Museum paid homage to
its past and took a step
into the future when
it recently celebrated
its 30th anniversary at
its Crawford Boulevard
Not only did museum and
city officials, friends and
visitors celebrate three
decades of activities de-
signed specifically for
youngsters, but also broke
ground for construction
of the historic Rickards
Executive Director Poppi
Mercier also talked of a
later phase of construc-
tion at the site, one that
will bring a futuristic
"Voyager" building.
"The Children's Museum
now has a 30 year time-
line," Mercier told the
crowd from a stage on the
museum grounds. "But,
most importantly, in that
time, we have served one
million children and their
family members in a vari-

ety of ways.'
"We have created over
20 school programs, five
major events, art camps
and exhibits," she said.
"Through these pro-
grams, children were ex-
posed to lessons in art,
science, math, history, the
environment and reading.
We know that children
need to be exposed to
culture and the arts at a
very young age. With the
building of the Rickards
House, we will be able to
widen our scope of mu-
sic programs for young
children through Jason's
Music Hall, which will
occupy the ground floor
of our new addition."
"Through our museum,
we strive to give chil-
dren the opportunity to
express themselves and
explore their future with
encouragement," added
"This is a tremendous as-
set to the community,"
County Commission Ste-
ven Abrams told the Boca
Raton Tribune following
the ceremony. He re-
called that when he first

ran for office in 1989, he
made his announcement
on the steps of the mu-
seum building.
"A tree was planted on
that occasion," he said,
expressing his happiness
that it is still there and
growing strong.
Following Mercier's wel-
come speech, thoughts
and comments were pre-
sented by Commissioner
Abrams, Deputy Mayor
Susan Haynie, Museum
Board President Penny
Morey, Board members
Anita Detert and Elaine
Wyner. Councilwoman
Constance Scott was also
on hand.
Board member Deborah
Carman announced that
a time capsule with pho-
tos, newspapers and sou-
venirs of the ceremony
will be encapsulated in
Mizner's Dream Castle
on the museum grounds.
The historic capsule will
be opened on the 50th an-
niversary of the museum
in 20 years.

sented awards and badges
during recent ceremonies
at the Fire Administration
Building at 6500 Con-
gress Avenue.
The chief honored Mi-
chael Hawkins for assist-
ing a driver who had been
in an accident.
On April 30, Hawkins
was working in the area
of Texas Trail when he
noticed a car drive by
and, seconds later, the ve-
hicle struck a pole.
Hawkins immediately
activated the 911 system
and ran over to the vehi-
cle where he began using
skills he learned just days
earlier when he gradu-
ated from his Emergency
Medical Technician class.
The rescuer checked the
victim to see if he had
a pulse, was breathing
and if he was awake and
could answer questions.
The victim was uncon-
scious so Hawkins held
his hnrdl nd neck to nrm-

tect his spine and awaited
the arrival of Boca Raton
Fire Rescue Paramedics.
On May 29, David Hill,
a city of Boca Raton em-
ployee, was at work when
he witnessed a motor ve-
hicle crash on North Di-
xie Highway near Hidden
Valley Boulevard. The
vehicle had rolled over
three times and came to
rest on the passenger side.
Hill quickly called 911
and made his way to the
vehicle. Finding the vic-
tims still belted in, Hill
gained access and as-
sisted them out of the un-
stable vehicle.
For their "willingness
to act and their selfless
dedication to humanitar-
ian needs" Hawkins and
Hill received the Boca
Raton Fire Rescue Ser-
vices "Citizen Courage
Chief Wood also rec-
ognized the following
members of Boca Raton

Intentional Moms host annual

luncheon at Polo Club of Boca Raton

Story, photos by
Barbara McCormick

BOCA RATON More than
250 members and friends at-
tended the annual luncheon
of Intentional Moms (im!)
celebrated at the elegant
Polo Club in Boca Raton.
Intentional Moms is a na-
tional organization dedicat-

and introduced her mother,
Catherine Hickem, LCSW,
founder, author, teacher, and



the keynote speaker for the
afternoon affair.
"All of us will leave a lega-
cy," said Mrs. Hickem. "The
question becomes, what will
that legacy be? It isn't how
we begin that matters. It is
how we finish that will set
into our place the heritage
we will leave our children."
"With the love, help and
encouragement given to me
by Intentional Moms, I now
feel like everyday is Moth-
er's Day for me" someone in
the crowd said.
Jeanette Lewis and Hilary
Lynch served as luncheon
chairs, assisted by board

members: Lynn Fisher, Pau-
la Martinez, Fitz Carty, Nat-
alie Little, Jackie Perez and

Bevy of restaurant openings lets Boca revelers eat, drink and be merry

Avew IKLA3 restaurant 12in ivzner FYarK.

The bright lights, the big
city the breast implants.
The summer social season
in Boca Raton is glitz-
ing, awash in mini sliders,
mozzarella cheese balls
and pizza.
And restaurant openings.
In just the past week two
popular restaurants were
reincarnated from the ghost
of their past. Saturday
night, the lights went back
on at the former Pranzo in
Mizer Park.
This new restaurant (called
RACKS) is classier and
clearly more comfortable
than the frigid noisy Pranzo.
Owner Gary Rack (who
also owns Table 42) is the
brains behind this new
Mizer haunt. And to cel-
ebrate its five-star renova-
tion (to the tune of $4 mil-
lion) the place was jumping
with a collection of beauti-

ful people and mini-sized
portions of things to come
(food wise).
There were mini grilled
cheese sandwiches, miso
sea bass wraps, Buffalo
calamari, chicken wings
and pizza. The sparkling
wine flowed and the
crowd seemed to multi-
ply within minutes of the
official pre-official open-
ing (there was an outside
courtyard serving food
and drinks to those who
could brave the heat).
The guest list included
many familiar faces -
Harvey Wachman, Steve
Fox and his gal pal, Carrie
Roman and singles guru
Ann Rotman (and pals).
Like many star spangled
bashes in Boca Raton,
the ratio of men to wom-
en was clearly a boon
for men. I often wonder

remembered that hot Boca
)abes usually come out at

and bats).
Over 1,200 people attend-
ed the lavish affair (about
900 were women) and
everyone seemed pretty
happy. "This restaurant is
great and the food looks

delicious," said stunner
Giselle Radice, a local
optometrist. The exotic
dark woods, classy chan-
deliers (one made of sil-
verware) and intimate
interior made up for the
lack of testosterone.
On Wednesday night, the
former Bova Ristorante
came back to life as Vivo
Partenza. This glamorous
sexy space is elegant, up-
beat and comfortable in a
California way. Tony and
Laurie Bova wanted to
continue doing what they
do best serving great
Italian food in an upbeat
friendly atmosphere.
(VIVO means alive and
lively in Italian).
And they didn't disap-
point. The crowd was a
wonderful mix of for-
mer Bova patrons and
locals who wanted to ce-

lebrate this new hot spot.
And, aside from the ter-
rific food (there was Wild
Scottish Salmon, French
fries, meatballs, pizza and
mozzarella balls) there
were men.
This abundance of testos-
terone was not on the press
release (or on the menu) but
it was a welcome sight. The
guests happily munched
on coin-sized cuisine and
seemed to genuinely enjoy
the company of such an
eclectic classy crowd (that
included Russell of bocara-
ton.com, Douglas Heizer
and the Boca Tribune gang,
Marleen Forkas and a slew
of other great folks).
What's it like to attend
these events? It's a lot
of fun if you enjoy great
people watching and
sampling foods that often
don't declare their origin.

Large platters are passed
around above eye level (if
you're short you're at a
disadvantage) and like any
competitive sport you have
to be in the right place at
the right time. But, there
was plenty of food and
drink to go around at both
"With this opening, we feel
like we are coming home,"
said Tony Bova. "As a
family we are focusing on
the things that have always
been most important to us,
which is making each and
every guest feel they are
part of our family every
time they dine with us."
So there you have it. It's
time to get off the couch
(turn off the news) and
watch life unfold in its nat-
ural habitat while enjoying
one of life's greatest plea-
sures food.

So "I Am Love" is real-

plenty of food, sex and nu-

say bon appetit.

Proverbs 6:6-7 "Take a
lesson from the ants, you
lazybones. Learn
from their ways
and become wise!
Though they have
no prince or gov-
ernor or ruler to
make them work,
they labor hard all Pr.
summer ga1li li' food
for the winter "
One of the marks of smart
people is that they seem
to learn from everything...
success or failures; the
"ups" or the "downs" of
life. These "bright" in-
dividuals are even attune
to the world around them
and can extrapolate prin-
ciples from nature.
Myrmecology is the study
of ants. And when we
do take a look at them
we find out that they are
quite amazing creatures,
and there is much wisdom
that can be gained from
watching them.
* There are over 10,000
different species of ants.
* They are able to lift 20
times their own body
* Certain species build
structures 500 times their
own height.
* The brain of one ant has
250,000 cells whereas the
human brain has 10,000
million brain cells.
* Ants also have 2 stom-
achs. One for storing up
food to share with others
later, and one for itself.
* The life expectancy of
an ant is 45-60 days. Yet
these tiny creatures ac-
complish much in their
short life-span.
Ants Teach Us About
Our Purpose
Every individual or com-

pany must have a plan
or else all their efforts are
ust useless activ-
ity. At first glance
it may appear that
ants are just running
around in random
patterns, but after
close examination it
nd becomes evident all
motion is measured and
It becomes very evident
that the reason they are
efficient is that they all
participate. Even a casu-
al observation reveals that
every ant is busy. They
clearly work in harmony
and each ant is busy do-
ing what he is supposed
to do. One of the reasons
ants can get so much done
despite their size and such
a small amount of time is
because everyone is do-
ing something. Someone
put it this way "if every-
one in the boat was busy
rowing, they would 't
have time (or the energy)
to rock it. "
Ants Teach Us About
"On their own, each ant '
behavior is relatively use-
less, but when swarms of
ants come together the
patterns optimize natu-
rally and allow them to
accomplish tasks that
should be far beyond
their reach. To the outside
observer their self-orga-
nizing efforts seem to be
directed by some larger
force or collective intelli-
gence. Theirs is a society
that is truly more than the
sum of its parts. "
The ant colony is a com-
munity. They build these
colonies sometimes to a
depth of 35 feet below

the ground... like a city
for ants. These structures
are sometimes complex
buildings with rooms for
various activities. Each
individual seems to un-
derstand that it is part of
a greater whole and will-
ingly cooperates for the
good of the community.
It is vital that humans
understand that we must,
as that great American
statesman said, either
"hang together or we will
hang separately."
They also understand
the necessity of coop-
eration.They share their
food, their facilities,
and even look after and
take care of each other's
young. "Once upon a
time there was a pig and
a cow living together
on a farm. The cow was
popular while the pig was
not. This puzzled the pig.
"People speak warmly of

likes me. Why is that?'"
The cow replied, "Per-

while I'm still living. '"

Since the inception of
my advice column, I've
received so many letters
and emails asking me the
same question is there a
way to see what I would
look like if I had plastic
surgery? For the past 30
years, in both my every-
day practice and while
conducting anti-aging re-

quest to find the ultimate
answer to one the most
common questions that
patients are asking: 'How

was so very important to
me to find a visual tool

What business are

you in?

Nothing happens

until somebody

sells something

Let me first give credit to
Arthur "Red" Motley for
the phrase, "Nothing Hap-
pens until Somebody Sells
Something" that appeared
in Parade Magazine in
1930. It was true then and it
is true today; selling is the
foundation of any business.
Many businesses have
lost sight of the value
of 'personal selling.'
Although we know
the importance that
advertising, public
relations and promo-
tions play in a success- Gerad
ful business, sometimes we
forget that many sales are
lost because the business
owner/manager does not
understand the mechanics
of actually making the ap-
pointment and then closing
the sale.
A neighbor of mine men-
tioned that he was able to
save a substantial amount
on his insurance premiums
(we both have similar cov-
erage). Naturally, I called
his representative and told
him that I was very inter-
ested. He asked me to send
him copies of my policies.
However, I never had the
time to send them to him. He
never called to remind me to
send copies of the policies.
I guess he was waiting for
me to make the move. So,
nothing happened I still
have the same policies and
he never made the sale.
This is an example of some-
thing that could have ben-
efited both of us. I am not
talking about high pressure
tactics. I am not talking
about the Willy Lomans of
the world (the lead charac-
ter from "Death of a Sales-
man"). My concern is with
business owners/manag-
ers and their salespeople
who do not have sufficient
knowledge and training in
the selling process and who
are unable to recognize buy-
ing signals.

These business owners and
managers may have product
knowledge but are lacking
in their ability to make the
sale. The business world
today is losing the per-
sonal touch that is needed
to close the sale. Too many
think that, 'Selling is a Dirty
Word' (Sherman
& Perlman 2007).
Nothing could be
further from the
Personal selling
is a key needed in
ermabuyer/seller rela-
tionships in both business-
to-consumer and business-
to-business marketing.
Personal selling is and has
always been an important
part in the mechanics of do-
ing business.
It is interesting to note that
conditions and roles may
have changed due to present
day technology, (Internet,
blogs, and Social Media)
but the basic ingredient for
success in the market place
-- personal selling -- has and
never will change. 'Person-
al Selling' is developing and
maintaining a close business
relationship with the cus-
tomer, where both customer
and salesperson trust and re-
spect each other, and where
the seller interacts for the
purpose of continuing the
relationship while obtaining
a sale for the mutual ben-
efit of both buyer and seller
(Sherman & Perlman 2007).

Boca Raton: Prepared for Hurricane Season

By Line: By Donovan

Nicole Gasparri, program
development manager for
the city of Boca Raton,
isn't paying attention to
the hurricane prognosti-
"Boca Raton prepares as
if it is going to be a busy
season every year. Our
biggest concern is that
since there has been no
hurricane activity in the
area since Wilma in 2005,
people have become lack-
adaisical and will not be
Boca Raton learned from
the power outages created

by Hurricane Wilma and
has since invested in 30
generators to control the
traffic lights and 10 trail-
er mounted generators to
keep the city's water sup-
ply flowing. There is also
a new water and ice site
established at the Spanish
River Library just east of
Military Trail. Even with
all of Boca's groundwork,
there is only so much that
the city can do to ensure
"What's most important
is that citizens take re-
sponsibility for their own
well being. This involves
protecting their homes,
having enough food and

water for two weeks, maintaining generators, and, if
the situation arises, evacuating," says Gasparri.
To learn more about evacuation zones, shelters, and
preparation, visit the Boca Raton city website at www.

Alex, first hurricane of

season makes landfall

Alex, the first storm of the 2010 hurricane season,
made landfall on July 1st as a category 2 in Mexico.
It caused severe damage and flooding in Playa Bay, a
small town 22 miles from the city of Matamoros.
Boca Raton--although experiencing an extremely rainy
Fourth of July weekend--can be thankful that there are
no hurricanes headed our way at the moment.
There is a tropical wave moving west-northwest off the
Yucatan Peninsula and rains are expected to hit Texas
late in the week. It isn't expected to develop into any-
thing serious.

Hundreds protest in Lake

Worth against off shore

drilling Seephotos in Spotlight onpage 16.

By Donovan Ortega

Crowds began to gather
at 11 A.M. on Lake Worth
Beach on June 26th to take
part in Hands Across the
Sand, a peaceful protest
against offshore drilling.
The movement began in
Florida on February 13th
of this year-before the oil
spill in the Gulf of Mex-
ico-and united over 90
beaches across the state. It's
caught on quickly and Lake
Worth is just one of the hun-
dreds of beaches around the
world in which protesters
will join hands to form hu-
man chains of unity against
off shore drilling. Surfrid-
ers, an environmental or-
ganization, pitched a tent
at the base of the pier and
people begin to swarm an
enthusiastic Tom Remmel
as he handed out petitions.
"The oil spill was a wake-
up call," says Remmel,
vice chair of Surfriders,
but we were aware of
the horrible possibilities
of offshore drilling before
it. We had over 300 peo-
ple out here in February,
and we expect more than
twice that number today."
Men lean on the railings at
the bar of Benny's on the
Beach. They talk about
the surf and the oil spill
and watch the crowds
grow below them. Protest-
ers carrying signs begin
to appear. One sign says,
"Find help to end your ad-
diction to oil," and Carol
Fields wears it proudly
around her neck. She is
part of the Raging Gran-
nies, just one of the many
organizations present that
include Greenpeace, the

Sierra Club, and Com-
pass. Bill Morgan holds
a sign that says, "Boycott
BP," and he smiles widely
as his picture is taken,
encouraged by the crowd
that is bottlenecking at
the stairs and spilling out
onto the beach.
The line begins to form. It
stretches to the north and
south of the pier as partici-
pants look to their left and
right, holding hands, not
holding hands, clapping,
laughing, and overall-
having a good time. Barry
Silver of the Environmen-
tal Coalition stalks the line
with a mega-phone, shout-
ing out encouragement,
thanks, and direction.
"This looks great," Sil-
ver yells as he walks in
the surf wearing white
tennis shoes, "This line
looks like it's a mile long.
Thanks for coming out!
Now slide down a little.
We want this line as long
as possible."
The line grows. People
who had planned on tan-
ning are suddenly protest-
ers, joining the line eager-
ly. A giant rainbow flag
blows in the wind and is
held by the Compass or-
"Look how far that line
goes," says Compass
member Taylor Stevens as
he looks down the beach,
" but I think that the more
we become known and
the more we become or-
ganized, we can stretch
this whole coast. That's
what we need to do."

Delray Beach children

who do good deeds can

get free popcorn

The children of Delray
Beach are busy doing good
deeds in the community,
thanks to a new program
initiated by two local busi-
The Atlantique Cafe and
The JYBAWorld Foun-
dation have joined forces
to encourage children to
do good deeds and be re-
warded by being given a
bag of free popcorn.
Children of all ages may
participate, according to
the program initiators. An
official JYBAWorld Good

seven days a

In addition, forms may

Beach Recreation Center
at 802 Veterans Park, at any

merce or at any participat-
ing Delray retail merchant.
Because of the Chihuahua
JYBA depicted on the The
JYBAWorld Good Deed
form, it is easy to spot and
The purpose of the Good
Deed for Popcorn initiative
is to remind Delray fami-
lies and children that doing
something good for others
helps both children and
communities thrive, Atlan-
tique Cafe owner, Dagmar
Hejda explained.
"As Delray business peo-
ple, we want to inspire

children to think about
doing good deeds and
we want to let the chil-
dren know that not only
do their parents appreci-
ate their kind acts, but the
Delray community wants
to acknowledge them as
Once a child performs a
good deed and writes a
brief description about it
on the form, a parent veri-
fies the completion of the
deed by signing the form.
The finished form may
then be turned in at The
Atlantique Cafe for a free
bag of pop-
Both Delray
Beach business
owners hope
This program
will spread
I and that many
businesses will
join as sponsors to reward
children's good deeds by
offering something special
in their store.
"Children who are fo-
cused on helping others
and go out of their way to
do a good deed establish
incredibly positive views
of themselves and the
JYBAWorld founder Ilon-
ka Harezi points out, "As
Whitney Houston's song
'Greatest Love of All' says
so profoundly, 'I believe
the children are our future,
Teach them well and let
them lead the way, Show
them all the beauty they
possess inside, Give them a

Reese! Yummy, aren't I?
I'm a neutered male Dachs-
hund, a year-and-a-half old,

ries behind me.

lots of treats, we may be
a match made in heaven.

ing guy and I like kids

and other dogs. Maybe
cats, too, who knows?
I KNOW you think I'm
cute, so let's meet and
seal the deal.
I'm available for adop-

hound. His owners adopted
him when he was seven
months old from a fam-

The Kings of South Beach

Chris Bosh and
Dwyane Wade
will join forces
in south beach to
create what has
been named the
"South Beach Su-
No one ever ex-
pected Wade to
leave his beloved
HEAT, but in the
past few days it
became a little of a
scare when Wade
met with Chicago
twice and was
talking about free
agency. But, now
all HEAT fans
can sleep better
tonight knowing
that our superstar is back
in Miami for at least an-
other 5 years with his new
buddy Chris Bosh. When
asked about what the dy-
namic duo will do for Mi-
ami bosh simply smiled
and said "We are going to
bring winning to Miami"
Simply put, Pat Riley is
a complete genius. Back
in the 2003 Draft, Riley
wanted Bosh but the Rap-
tors took him with the
4th pick, leaving Miami
and its 5th pick going to
the future MVP Dwyane
Wade. Now, Seven years
later, Riley gets his cake
and eats it too. With the
4th and 5th pick of that
star studded NBA Draft
class playing for his team.
Both players were all
smiles at their collec-
tive interview they held
on Wednesday afternoon
at 12:30 on Sportscen-
ter. Both players seemed
ecstatic to be playing to-
gether. From the begging,
Wade and Bosh made it
clear that they were not in
this for the money.
"We've wanted to play
with each other and we
have a golden opportuni-

ty to do that. We're going
to take advantage of it,"
Bosh said on SportsCen-
Wade said it was difficult
to turn down a return to
his hometown Chicago.
But in the end, an oppor-
tunity to play with Bosh
and build a title contender
in Miami won out over
his desire to play for Chi-
cago, he said.
"Now we can get on the
pace of building a cham-
pionship," Wade said.
Earlier in the week, the
Raptors were interested
in only doing a sign-and-
trade with the Cleveland
Cavaliers. Bosh though,
denied the trade saying
he didn't' want to play in
Cleveland. When asked
on Sportscenter about
his decision, he said: "I
wasn't sure if LeBron was
coming back [to Cleve-
land] and I just wanted to
leave that decision up to
him. I wanted to choose
the best situation for me
and my family and Miami
was the best decision for
Let's look into this deal
a little deeper, what will

Wade gain from a
pairing with Chris
Bosh? Wade will
gain a low post
threat that Miami
has been missing
since the days of
Alonzo and Shaq.
Wade will gain
a legitimate 2nd
scoring option
and a 20-10 per
night guy, noth-
ing but a win for
Miami, Pat Riley,
and Wade.
What's next for
Miami? Well, as-
suming LeBron
will not sign with
Miami, Miami
has the option of
going after David Lee, Car-
los Boozer, Raymond Fel-
ton, or even Derek Fisher.
The ideal situation would
be for Miami to sign a
solid point guard (Fisher
or Felton), and try to do
a sign and trade with the
Mavericks that would in-
clude Jermaine O'Neal,
and Michael Beasley for
their center Brandon Hay-
wood. With that, Miami
would have a solid center,
power forward, shooting
guard and point guard.
With the entire NBA World
raving about the Miami
Heat, one only has to re-
member one thing, when
the team was a 15-67 squad,
the fans that still cheered
and rooted for them were
still there. Now, those fans
are being repaid for 3 years
of mediocrity. To all the
new Miami Heat fans
jumping on the bandwag-
on, get in quick because
soon enough we are not
going to accept you guys.
And to us loyal, faithful
fans of Heat Nation, we
have been rewarded and
now we can surely cele-
brate in south beach with
some Coronas.

Dunga Gets Red Card. No

Longer Coach of The Selegao.
Learn more at www. 90minutesstrong. cor

Brought to you by
Achei USA: The Brazil-
ian Newspaper

The Brazilian Football
Federation (CBF) did not
even wait until the dust
settled in the World Cup
to dismiss the coach of
the Brazilians. Dunga and
his committee inclu-
ding assistant Jorginho,
the supervisor Americo
Faria and the doctor Jose
Luis Runco are no lon-
ger head of the team.
The official announce-
ment of the firing was
short and rude. "The work
that began back in August
2006 and finished with
the elimination of Bra-
zil's World Cup in South
Africa, the CBF anounces
that the current coaching
staff of the Brazilian team
is no longer in power. The
new coaching staff will
be announced later this
month" appeared on the
website of the entity.
Now the speculation will
begin as to who will be
the new occupant of one
of the most important
coaching positions in the
world. Five names have
been mumbled about: the
favorites, because they

were already in this same
situation in the past, are
the coach of Atletico Mi-
neiro, Vanderlei Luxem-
burgo, and newly hired
coach of Palmeiras, Luiz
Felipe Scolari. Also on
the list are the coaches of
Fluminense and Corinthi-
ans, Mano Menezes and
Muricy Ramalho, respec-
tively, and former player
Leonardo, who coached
Italy's AC Milan last sea-
The choice of Leonardo
does not seem absurd if
fans remember that the
president of CBF, Ri-
cardo Teixeira, wants to
promote the renewal of
the team. Looking to the
2014 World Cup and the
Olympics in 2016 both
competitions will be
played in Brazil, thus,
the contract would be the
future coach of six years
rather than the usual four.
Dunga, the now former
coach, was chosen to be
the replacement for Carlos
Alberto Parreira in August
2006, shortly after the fail-
ure of Brazil's World Cup
in Germany. The captain
of the fourth champion-
ship in 1994, despite the
disappointment in South

Africa, leaves office with
a surplus: he won the titles
of the 2007 Copa America
and Confederations Cup
2009, and finished the
qualifiers for the South
American World Cup 2010
as leader. But the World
Cup, which ultimately is
what counts, Brazil was
eliminated by the Nether-
lands in the quarterfinals.
Hours before he was offi-
cially fired, Dunga went
on to say, during his ar-
rival in Porto Alegre on
Sunday morning, that he
would rest for a week or
two and then later talk
about his situation. The
fans now wait anxiously,
to see who will be the
commander of the so
dreamed sixth champion-

Fans flood local

bars for World Cup

By Donovan Ortega

Television ratings have
soared for the 2010
World Cup, prompting
speculation that soccer
in the United States may
become an increasingly
predominant force in the
sporting landscape. The
Nielson ratings for the
United States' first match
against England were
higher than the first four
games of the NBA finals.
An average of 11.1 mil-
lion viewers watched the
United States play their
first three games, up 68
percent when compared
to the 2006 World Cup.
But putting the numbers
aside, what was most im-
pressive was the excitement
and verve that surrounded
the United States' games.
Fans showed up in droves
around the country, fill-
ing up bars to capacity,
wearing jerseys, dawn-
ing flags, tying red, white
and blue ribbons in their
hair, painting their faces,
and, well-freaking out.
America felt like England
or France, a footballing
nation. And Boca Ra-
ton was no exception. At
WOW!ES, a sports bar
off of Palmetto and Pow-
erline, general manager
Miguel Faget was sur-
prised at the turn out from
"It has been overwhelm-
ing. We were not expect-
ing this big of a response,
especially from American
people," said Faget, an
Argentine American, "the
environment was magi-
cal for the United States'

games. The vibe was
At Duffy's on St. An-
drews Blvd. the reaction
was the same. General
Manager Cecilio Barnes
was ecstatic about the
boon to business the
World Cup has been.
"Business has increased
drastically. It has been
a very good month,"
said Barnes, "and the at-
mosphere was electric.
The crowd would chant
U.S.A. Everyone was go-
ing crazy."
But with the United States
eliminated from the World
Cup, interest has waned
and it seems that America,
while being captivated by
soccer for short spurts,
might be more patriotic
than anything.
"For America to become
truly interested in soccer,
it's going to take more
than the World Cup. Soc-
cer needs more venues
and events. It needs more
promotion to keep it rele-
vant," said Barnes, "But I
think the interest is there.
We filled the restaurant
in 15 minutes when the
United States played. It
would be a great oppor-
tunity to promote now to
keep the momentum go-
Faget is more optimistic
about soccer in America
and feels that WOW!ES
can tap into the market.
"I think interest is defi-
nitely going to hold af-
ter the World Cup," said
Faget, "I think the MLS
games are going to grow
even more and we're going
to promote it."

The Boca Raton Tribune SPORTS East/West Boca Raton, FL

By Pedro Heizer

Some hail the US soccer
team as the sleeping giant,
which its future could well
come in league with top foot-
ball nations like Spain, Brazil
and Argentina. At its present
stage, USA Soccer Team is
regarded as an underdog but
it surely has the all important
component that many of the
great teams have... "Young
talent". The young talent
is flourishing alright but it
needs some time to reach its
full potential.
Bob Bradley has been able
to mold the squad into a
much better team than they
were in the 2006 World Cup.
As a coach he has been suc-
cessful in getting the most
and the best out of his team,
more than any other coach
in the past. Bradley has been
very good in combining ex-
perience at the defense with
the enthusiasm of the youth
at the attack line. But there
has been some talk that
Bradley's job is on the ropes
after the early exit from the
World Cup. But, I think that
Bradley should have another
shot at molding this team
into a champion.
Talking about young tal-
ent and experience, the US
soccer team is blessed with

both. In Jozy Altidore, they
have a powerful and agile
forward who can rip the best
of defenses apart and sim-
ply score at will as we saw
in the Trinidad and Tobago
game in which he scored
a hat-trick. Don't be too
quick to judge this 20 year
old phenomenon, just be-
cause he didn't have A great
World Cup like all were ex-
pecting, it doesn't mean he
won't be back when he's
24. He is already a fan fa-
vorite and will only get bet-
ter with his experiences in
Europe and grow to be one
of the most lethal scorers in
United States soccer history
one day. Expect nothing but
the best from Altidore when
looking ahead to the 2014
World Cup.
In the midfield, they have
Michael Bradley, Maurice
Edu and Freddy Adu, both
who are overflowing with
talent. And you can't for-
get about the experienced
veterans that may be able to
be in the pitch for one more
World Cup in 2014... Land-
on Donovan is only 28 and
in his prime and by 2014 he
will be 32 years of age. At
32, Donovan will not be the
scorer he is today, nor will
he be the agile midfielder
we have all grown to love,

but he will bring something
to the table that only he can
bring; Experience. One can't
forget about Clint Dempsey,
the attacking midfielder that

is only 27 years old and will
only be 31 in 2014. He and
Donovan are the ones that
can bring the experience
swagger to a very good
United States team. As they
hope to build on their disap-
pointing loss to Ghana in the
2010 World Cup.
Yes, this is all hypotheti-
cally speaking of course be-
cause you never know what
can happen to one of them,
much like what happened to
David Beckham, Donovan
or Dempsey can get hurt
right before the World Cup
and never play again. But, if
Donovan and Dempsey take
care of themselves, they def-
initely have one more World
Cup under their belts.
The young of today are the
future of tomorrow, and the
more talented the young
are, the better are the future
prospects. The present US
soccer team is young, tal-
ented and enthusiastic and
could be a force in interna-
tional soccer in the future.
