visited Omaha, Neb., in 1941, the city commis-

which melted when it lost its frigid home. However,
Omaha is still home to a strange walk-in rock grotto
nestled between the mental hospital and a parking

Marjorie Trowbridge Wil-
son was born in Bloom-
field, New Jersey not long
before the infamous stock
market crash of 1929. She

was the daughter of Irving
Napoleon Trowbridge and
Clara Barton Cory. She
spent her younger years
in Port Murray, New Jer-
sey and later moved to
Glassboro, New Jersey.
There she met the love of
her life, Dwight Wilson,
while working in a bak-
ery. They were married
on November 29, 1950
in Glassboro. Dwight and
Marjorie were blessed
with two sons, Dwight
Jr. and David. Due to
Marjorie's fragile health,
they moved to Florida a
few years before David's
birth. Marjorie trained as
a beautician but her main
job in live was Mother
and Wife. The family was
deeply saddened when
Dwight Sr passed away

on his birthday in 2009
because Dad said his
job was to take care of
Mom. Marjorie's health
declined rapidly follow-
ing Dwight Sr's death
and she came to live
with David and his wife,
Yvette, in April 2010
when the doctor told her
she could no longer live
alone. Sadly for the rest
of us, she rejoined her be-
loved husband on July 31,
2010. We mourn her pass-
ing and miss both of them
deeply. She is survived by
her sons Dwight R Wilson
Jr. of Tavares, Florida,

of Boca Raton, Florida,

A safety tip from Boca Raton Police

Q: Can I leave my kids alone in the vehicle
while I quickly run an errand, like running
into the post office or dropping off my dry

A: Florida law permits a child to be left unat-
tended in a vehicle for 15 minutes or less only if
the health of the child is not in danger. Florida's
high temperatures mean that even on a mild day
a child is in danger, as vehicle temperatures rise
20 degrees for every 10 minutes that the vehicle
is turned off. Because children's temperatures
rise 3-5 times faster than an adult's, there is no
safe amount of time for a child to be left alone
in a vehicle.
Crime and safety questions are answered by Of-
ficers from the Boca Raton Police Services De-
partment's Crime Prevention Unit. For more in-
formation visit www.bocapolice.com

ed, "We know that young

I've been spending a lot
of time on North Federal
Highway lately. My wife
and I took in a couple of
shows at Caldwell. She's
been checking stores for
new furniture. And we
found a great Greek res-
taurant that we've been

It's disappointing, though,
because I was around when

way Steering Committee
was conducting its char-
rette that developed what

Number One Boxer "
Number One Bx 10 questions from

in the United States Tribune readers
Tribune readers

Boca Raton Trihlne Sports
Editor Pedro Heizer inter-
viewedSteve Geffrard, one
of not only the best box-
ers in Florida, but in the
United States. Heizer had
a sit-down with Steve at
the Police Athletic League
gym and asked him ques-
tions that were emailed
from readers.
These are the questions
and a synopsis of her an-
swers. Hear and view the
complete interview on
www. bocaratontribune.

How did you begin box-
Steve: A friend of mine
took me to the Boca
Raton Police Athletic
League when I was only
13 years old. At that time,
I was lifting weights and
playing recreational
league football, and I saw
the other guys in the box-
ing gym lifting weights
and I was very curious
and I got into boxing
from that day.
What changed in your
life after boxing?
Steve: Boxing has helped
me take life more serious.
It's helped me become
more motivated and fo-
cused. In boxing you
can't take shortcuts, if
you do you will lose. The
person that works hard

will be victorious, and in
life it's the same way.
How was your experi-
ence at St. Andrews?
Steve: St. Andrews was
a great experience. I
think it's one of the best
schools in the southeast-
ern United States. It was
a life changing experi-
ence for me.
Why didn't you just go
into professional boxing
once you could?
Steve: If you are a pro

boxer you can't box in
the Olympics. I think it
would be a great thing
for me to represent the
US in the Olympics es-
pecially in the heavy-
weight division, because
we haven't won a gold
medal in that division in
so many years.
How is your experience
with team USA been go-
Steve: I actually just
came back from the USA

National Championships
in Colorado Springs at
the Olympic training
center. It was great. I've
known most of the guys
from other tournaments
and last year I was also
there training for another
tournament as well.
How are you handling
the publicity? Do you
feel it's hard to stay
down to earth?
Steve: Not really, the
way I was raised was to
stay humble, and stay
grounded. I just try to
not let it get to my head.
I know that even though
I'm wining all these
tournaments, that only
invites me to train even
harder because I know I
will be the guy to beat in
these tournaments.
What are your future
Steve: Starting in Sep-
tember I'm going to col-
lege. Hopefully I can jug-
gle that and the national
team all together. Hope-
fully after the Olympics
I can go pro and still
juggle school and things
like that.
Do you want to move
up in class?
Steve: No, I actually just
moved up to the heavy-
weight division. I'm not
planning on moving up
anytime soon.

Delay Judgment and Live

More Joyfully!

The tendency of so many
persons, unfortu-
nately, is not to
withhold judg-
ment but, rather,
to jump into con-
clusions, to rush
into condemna-
tion, either of
people or situa-
tions, long before Dr Sy
all facts are available.
Awareness of this long-
standing human procliv-
ity may be among the
reasons which led Baal
Shem Tov, the founder
of Hasidic Judaism in
the mid 18th century, to
warn, "Let us fall into the
hands of the Lord but let
us not into the hands of
man." Indeed, God is the
only One who can judge
accurately any individual
with the right judgment.
Many years ago I found
a plaque with an interest-
ing inscription. It said:
"It is better to be silent
and be thought a fool
than to speak up and re-
move all doubt." How
sadly true that so many
are too quick in making
pronouncements long
before they know an is-
sue sufficiently, or have
all the necessary data for
their conclusions. My
advice to such persons
is, when you jump into
something with both feet,
be sure one foot doesn't
go into your mouth! And
yet, such is the picture
presented by anyone who
is too swift in reaching a
premature verdict!
If you look for faults in
others, you shall surely
find them. Likewise, if
you search for good in
others, it will be there as
well. Blaming others for
your own sloth or stupid-
ity will never solve any
problem; instead, it may
ignite a flame where no
fire was previously exis-
tent. No relationship be-
tween two persons will

ever develop or thrive
if it is used as a
platform to vent
the anger and
frustration of
one individual,
on account of
unfounded sus-
picions, and a
premature judg-
sioLyra mental spirit.
People who believe
themselves as always
right, will never attract
nor develop long-lasting
relationships; their im-
pact is minimal or nil! If
you so readily question
something somebody
else says or does, it's
only fair that you also
doubt your own conclu-
Any negative emotions
you choose to carry, such
as grudges, resentments,
an unforgiving spirit,
will adversely affect your
human relationships,
poisoning the stream
flowing toward others.
You can never justify do-
ing anything wrong just
because you do many
other things right! It's
better to erase your sus-
picions quickly once you
find them to be baseless!
Don't insist on promot-
ing discord!

If students know the sounds that letters make before they enter kindergarten, they're ahead of the game.

Entering kindergarten is
a huge milestone for kids
and one for which they
should be well-prepared.
For some, it's the first
time they ever have been
in a classroom setting,
and it can be an over-
whelming experience for
them if they're not ready
for it. Here are some ways
parents can help their kids
get a jump-start on their
education and make their
transition to school a suc-
"Take them to differ-
ent places (zoos, parks,
libraries, beaches, play
groups)," says kindergar-

ten teacher Lani Salter.
"Read books and ask
them questions about it
so they are able to under-

about. Count with them
and teach them how to
represent the numbers,
meaning the value of the
numbers. For example,
one is one, whether it's

Office Depot distributes 6,000 backpacks to

Delray area kids

What weighs as much as
seven blue whales, stands
taller than 10,000 giraffes,
stretches from Denver to

The answer is 2.3 mil-

which happens to be the
number that the Office De-
pot Foundation has given
away to deserving children
since it established its Na-

10 years ago.
On Aug. 4, the Founda-

6,000 backpacks contain-
ing essential school sup-
plies to children served by
non-profit organizations

This year, the Office De-

have seen our backpacks
bring hope to children
whose families might not
be able to afford to buy
them a new backpack," said
Mary Wong, president of
the Office Depot Founda-
tion. "Parents and teachers
alike tell us that we truly are
helping children to build
self-confidence, boost self-
esteem and achieve greater
success in the classroom -
all as a result of being prop-
erly prepared for school."

The process of getting in

It has been observed that
life in general has be-
come more complicated,
but this is especially true
when it comes to applying
for college.
The process, which can
get complicated and
nerve-racking, should be-
gin with the student sitting
down with his or her par-
ents to clarify objectives,
according to Steven Roy
Goodman, an educational
consultant and the author
of "College Admissions
Together: It Takes a Fam-
"This is a very important
step," he says. "You, the
student, can't assume that
your parents will agree
with you about what you
should study or what col-
leges you should apply to.
In fact, your parents may
not agree with each other
on these points."
Topics that should be dis-
cussed include possible
majors and career inter-
ests, whether a liberal arts
or career-oriented institu-

tion is more appropriate,
whether the student will
choose a college close to
home or across the coun-
try and how to maximize
financial aid.
"You need to flesh out
these details before start-
ing the admissions pro-
cess. For example, one
parent may not believe in
women's colleges, while
the other may refuse to
pay for a liberal arts edu-
cation," Goodman says.
The student and parents
should determine what
issues they can agree on
and what, if anything, are
deal breakers. However,
the student must assume
the leading role in the col-
lege search.
"Someone has got to be
the quarterback. Ulti-
mately, the student needs
to accept the responsibil-
ity for his or her educa-
tion," Goodman believes.
Ana Homayoun, founder
of Green Ivy Educational
Consulting, advises stu-
dents and parents to work

together to develop a list
of institutions to which
the student will apply.
"Make a list in September
and the student should be
thrilled in April when the
admissions letters come
out," she says.
When it comes to com-
pleting college appli-
cations, many students
include long lists of ex-
tracurricular and commu-
nity activities to impress
the admissions officer or
committee. This, various
experts agree, often isn't
as effective as the appli-
cants may think.
It is a mistake for a stu-
dent to try to present him
or herself to the college as
a well-rounded individu-
al, Goodman says. "It's a
lopsided world. The days
of a student dabbling in a
long list of clubs so they
can be put on an applica-
tion are gone," he says.
"I advise students to do
what you want to do and
do a lot of it."

What can be done to fix this problem?

Bullying among children
is a school issue that never
will be eliminated com-
pletely. Communication
and clearly defined rules
may help to reduce bully-
ing incidents and effects.
Dr. Sylvia Rimm, writer
of several books and of the
syndicated column "Sylvia
Rimm on Raising Kids,"
says recent bullying could
be seen as a bigger prob-
lem than it was in the past
because of more aggressive
bullies and bullied victims
waging huge attacks on
other students. And new
technology tools, such as
text messaging, Twitter and
Facebook, make it easier to
pick on children at a faster

in schools for centuries, but

it has erupted into a major
crisis in schools where ad-

bullying as a major campus
problem," says Dr. Robert

weaker victims in order to
gain control. This control
makes the bullies feel pow-
erful. Rimm says some bul-

it," says Dr. Henry Gault,
a child and adolescent psy-
chiatrist who is part of the
American Academy of
Child & Adolescent Psy-
chiatry. "However, if it con-
tinues and a youngster feels
more and more alone and
isolated, there can be seri-
ous consequences.
Although bullying can oc-
cur at any age, Rimm says
that the middle-school
years tend to see frequent
bullying incidents. Early
adolescents are usually less
confident in their sexual-
ity and physical attractive-
ness and less secure with
their friend groups as they
go through puberty. Gault
suggests friendships as a
powerful element against
bullies. Because bullies en-
joy targeting single kids, a
friend may serve as a pro-
tective tool.
The goal is for a child to
convey the message that
he or she won't be pushed
around. Ignoring a bully
hardly ever works; the child
still is seen as vulnerable.
In milder cases, kids most
likely can take care of the
bullies alone. Stan Davis -
a former school counselor
and founder of Stop Bul-
lying Now! is co-leading
the Youth Voice Research
Project to learn more about
bullying prevention. The
research has found that
"telling them to stop" or
trying to "walk away"
makes the situation worse
with bullies.

Beauty is in

the eyes of

the beholder

W onderment and
beauty come in
different forms.
Some of us see beauty in
the shining sun while o-
thers see it as a potential
health threat. The same
goes for money to some
of us it is a divine right of
passage, to others it is the
root of all evil.
When I walked into the
new home of Maurice
Teich, I saw beauty every-
where. The Ligne Roset
sofa, the metal end table
with cut-out leaf pat-
tern, the black and white
swivel cube coffee table
and the dancing beams of
light coming through the
tall glass windows were
electrifying. The owners,
Maurice and Valerie, cre-
ated their dream home
from the ground up, with
art and artistic findings
that spanned the globe.
Yet I couldn't help but be
just as gleeful when I rode

the train home to Palm
Beach County. I was re-
lieved that I didn't have
to brave the highway (a
daredevil's task) and was
comforted by the sweet
glances of strangers. To
most people taking a train
in South Florida is akin
to sleeping on the street,
but to me it was a dream
sequence of the unknown
- a cool respite from the
warm night and a rela-
tively mindless mode of
Beauty also lies in the fa-
ces and figures of those
around us. A tall blond
model or chisel faced ma-
cho man enlighten our
intangible sense of the
visual (like a fine work
of art). Yet, to many of us
the Ugly Doll is a pretty
sight. This plush stuffed
doll doesn't fit the proto-
typical beauty standard of
our times. As a matter of
fact, the doll is ugly and

that's why so many of us
love them (and so many
have sold worldwide).
The Ugly Doll would not
get a date at a single's
dance, nor would an Ugly
Doll get picked up to grace
the cover of Ocean Drive
Magazine (I couldn't even
get an interview for a wri-
ter's position there) but on
Uglyverse the Ugly Doll
is beautiful. You know
why, because on Ugly-
verse ugly means unique
and special.
Beauty also takes on a

new dimension at the
"Collecting Biennial" ex-
hibit at the Whitney Mu-
seum in New York City.
It is there you can see
Louise Bourgeois's Pink
Days and Blue Days. This
very haute hot artwork
consists of pink dresses
hanging in mid-air from
iron rods wrapped around
enlarged human bones.
The concept of beauty
also takes a unique twist
with Allan McCollum.
This artist took 288 pic-
ture frames and filled

them with black paper (it
took him seven years to
do this).
Beauty also lies within the
simplistic in the art world.
Sherrie Levine framed a
piece of plywood with a
few drops of oil on it and
called it art and lo and
behold the Whitney Mu-
seum of Art agrees with
her. This carpenter's tool
has been decreed a na-
tional art treasure and is
worth a lot more than a
condo onA1A (go figure).
This is not to say that

the standard of beauty in
our culture has changed.
We still agree that Ange-
lina Jolie and Heidi Klum
are unequivocally beauti-
ful. But most of us would
agree that Klum's husband
Seal is anything but beauti-
ful which gives meaning
to my original conclusion
that beauty is in the eye of
the beholder. And for that
I am grateful because to
someone we are all beauti-

Barry had a chance en-
counter with a man he al-
most ran over with his car.
Instead of being angry, the

man, Barry (Steve Carell)
was apologetic for causing
any trouble. In the course
of conversation, gregari-
ous Barry revealed his un-
usual hobby of preserving
dead mice, placing them
in animated positions, and
dressing them up in cos-
tumes. Barry, a low level
employee of the IRS, is
so guileless, genuine and
honest Tim realizes he
may be just the fool Tim is
looking for.
Exploiting anyone for
their idiosyncrasies is cru-
el, and turning them into a
contest is crueler still.
Seeing Carell and Rudd
work together reminded
me of the old Martin &
Lewis comedies, with
Rudd in the role of hand-
some, smooth straight man
Dean Martin and Carell in
the role of Jerry Lewis, a
wacky, demented but bril-
liant comedian, unafraid
to do anything for a laugh.

role to date, and he com-

a much more upbeat end-
ing than the French ver-
The important thing is
that "Dinner" is laugh-
out-loud funny, even
when it is uncomfortable
and in very bad taste.
I have vowed to find the
original French version. I
suspect it will be funny in
a more barbed French sort
of way, but I'm guessing
this American version
has a warmer heart.

"Examine yourselves..." 2
Cor 13.5 (The Bible)
Everybody believes some-
thing. Nobody
operates out of
vacuum. The real
question is "what"
or "who" do you
believe. David O.
McKay wrote "the
greatest battles of Pr.
life are fought out daily in
the silent chambers of the
soul. "
For most Americans, life
is experienced in the fast
lane, and it is getting faster
every day. The demands of
going to work and school,
caring for the family, main-
taining the car, keeping the
house in shape, answering
emails, blogging, texting,
combine to push us beyond
the speed limit. We go to
bed with our minds racing,
reviewing all the undone
tasks and we are haunted
with the sense we are only
getting further behind.
All of this activity leaves
us with a disjointed and
distracted life. Margaret
Fuller once said, "Men, for
the sake of getting a living,
forget to live."
"By the time today's kin-
dergartners graduate from
high school, the amount
of knowledge in the world
will have doubled four
times. The Class of 2000
will be exposed to more
information in one year
than their grandparents
encountered in their en-
tire lives. They will have
to assimilate more inven-
tions and more information
than have appeared in the
last 150 years. (Marvin
Cetron and Owen Davies,
American Renaissance,
New York, St. Martin's
Press, 1989, p. 65)
When we lack direction,
are bombarded by distrac-
tion, with our lives frag-
mented and disjointed, we
tend to become discour-
aged. It is like comedian

Lewis Grizzard said, "Life
is like a dogsled team. If
you am't the lead dog,
the scenery never
How about you... are
you existing or re-
ally living. Most of
us are busy doing,
but what are we re-
'and ally accomplishing?
William James, a noted
psychologist and philoso-
pher of Harvard Universi-
ty, once delivered a lecture
which he called "The Will
to Believe." In the lecture
he addressed the question
of whether it is reasonable
to believe, in the religious
sense. He defined a "hy-
pothesis" as 1,!i ti1i,.
that may be proposed to
our belief "
There may be living op-
tions, in which a person
can see some possibility
of truth. Options may be
forced, meaning that the
person must make a deci-
sion one way or another,
or avoidable, meaning that
a person need make no de-
cision whatever. Options
may be momentous, vital-
ly important to one's life,
or trivial, of no real signifi-
cance at all. The matter of
religious faith, rather obvi-
ously, is a living, forced,
and momentous option.
(William James, The Will
to Believe, New York:
Longmanns, Green and
Co., 1987, pp. 2-3)
Every generation has strug-
gled with finding purpose
in life, but the unique chal-
lenge today is "do we have
the moral and intellectual
courage to sift through all
the trivial to find the sig-
nificant?" The internet is
literally a bottomless pit
of endless information that
can be either true or false.
Anyone can post anything
at any time and there is not
enough time in the day to
examine all the possible
sources or check the valid-

ity of the alleged facts.
We can believe whatever
we want, but what we be-
lieve must square with re-
ality. You may believe the
ten dollars in your wallet is
a thousand dollars, but all
the faith in the world will
not change the fact that it
is a ten dollar bill. Brian
Maiden correctly notes, "It
is not enough to worship
God; we must worship the
God who really is. Other-
wise we are not really wor-
shipping God at all. "
It is not arrogant to seek the
truth nor unkind to tell the
truth lovingly. The most
loving thing to do to a per-
son on the wrong train is
not to admire his sincerity
and say, "It doesn't matter
what you believe, all trains
lead to the same place,
have a pleasant trip!" The
most loving thing we can
do is to share the correct
information with him so he
can get to where he wants
to go.
Several years ago I read a
Persian proverb that pro-
vided a great bit of advice.
"He who knows not, and
knows not that he knows
not, is a fool; shun him.
He who knows not, and
knows that he knows not,
is a child; teach him. He
who knows and knows not
that he knows, is asleep;
wake him. He who knows,
and knows that he knows,
is wise; follow him."
In this ever-more confus-
ing, increasingly complex
world in which we live, we
must press on to "know,"
really know the truth about
life, God and ourselves.

Florida court unclear on use of

Sub-chapter S corporate cash

for alimony

Question: Iam a forensic
accountant, and recently
met with a local divorce
lawyer and his cli-
ent to prepare to
file a case against
her husband He
and his brother
own several fran-
chises in a popu-
lar chain of res- Mike
I explained that their cor-
poration was registered
as a Sub-chapter S corpo-
ration with the IRS.
For income tax purposes,
all of the net income of
their business is consi-
dered personal income,
whether or not it is all ta-
ken out of the company at
the end of the year Both
men own 50 percent of
the stock in the corpora-
tion, so halfofthe income
winds up in their indivi-
dual tax returns.

years ago the corporation

The parties have been
married for 18
years, and the wife
is a good candidate
for permanent
alimony. There
is a 13-year-old son
and an 11-year-
Jora old daughter to
be supported. The
wife k attorney tells me that
it is unclear whether a
Florida Court can count
the income retained in the
corporation as the hus-
band's for alimony and
child support.
He is of the opinion that
the husband and his bro-
ther may have been doing
some divorce planning, as
the brother-in-law is also
going ;1,,,,lrgh a divorce.
Is there any Florida law
on this specific subject?

Answer: Yes, but as u-
sual, the bottom line is,
"It depends." A few years
ago, the Florida Supreme
Court was faced with the
same question. It ruled
that the money kept in a
Sub-S corporation may or
may not be counted as in-
creasing ability to pay al-
imony and child support,
depending on whether
there was a legitimate bu-
siness reason to retain the
earnings in the corpora-
If the money was kept in

the corporation for the
purpose of defeating ali-
mony and child support,
and not for a legitimate
business purpose, it can
be considered.
The Court also ruled that
the "burden of proof' was
on the person in charge of
the corporation to prove
that he, or she, kept the
money in the corporation
for legitimate business pur-
poses, and not to harm the
In this case, history might
help your client, if as you
say; the retained earnings
were greatly increased
only when the two sto-
ckholders were contem-
plating divorce. On the
other hand, if there was
a plan to use the retained
earnings to open more
franchises that a judge
might consider that as
proof of good motive.
If you testify that there
was no good business rea-
son to retain the amount
of money kept in the cor-
poration, you can bet that
the husband's forensic
accountant will disagree
with you. If the case goes
to trial, the judge will
have to decide between
your two positions.

Teen wonders if she's too young

for breast reduction surgery

Dear Dr Man, I'm
only 16 years old
and entering my
junior year at high
school. Istartedde-
veloping at a young
age and have very
large breasts. I'm
a double D bra, Dr. DanielMan

even ;h. ,,gh I'm only 5'1 "
and I weigh 105 pounds.
My back is always hurt-
ing and I hate the size of
my breasts. While all my
friends wear cute bikinis, I
wear oversized t-shirts be-
cause I'm embarrassed. I
want breast reduction sur-
gery so badly, but my par-
ents think I'm too young.
We trust your advice. Am I
too young?
Answer: Women with very
large, pendulous breasts
may experience a vari-
ety of medical problems
caused by the excessive
weight, including back,
neck, and shoulder pain.
In addition, there may be
other physical discomforts,
such as bra straps leaving
indentations in their shoul-
ders. Large breasts can
also make women, espe-
cially young women like
yourself, feel embarrassed
or self-conscious.
Breast reduction, also
known as reduction mam-
moplasty, reduces dis-
proportionate, oversized
breasts by removing fat,
glandular tissue, and skin
from the breasts, making
them smaller, lighter, and
It can also reduce the
size of the areola, the
darker skin surrounding
the nipple. The goal of
the surgery is to give a

woman small-
er, better-
shaped breasts
in proportion
with the rest of
her body.
With regards
to being too
young. In most

cases, breast reduction
isn't performed until
a woman's breasts are
fully developed; how-
ever, it can be done ear-
lier if large breasts are
causing serious physi-
cal discomfort. From
what you told me, you
are very tiny and are
in discomfort and you
are feeling very self-
conscious. This could
mean you are ready for
the surgery. Below are
some details of what the
surgery entails.
Stitches are usually lo-
cated around the areola,
in a vertical line ex-
tending downward, and
along the lower crease
of the breast. Luckily,
modem surgical meth-
ods leave patients with
incision lines that are
only around the areola
and up and down, elimi-
nating the horizontal in-
cision at the bottom of
the breasts. These scars
should fade with time
and are usually covered
by a bra or bathing suit.
After surgery, the chest
area is wrapped in an
elastic bandage or a
surgical bra over gauze
dressings. The bandag-
es are usually removed
a day or two after sur-
gery, though the patient
continues wearing the

surgical bra around the
clock for several weeks,
until the swelling and
bruising subside.
Although the patient
may be up and about in
a day or two, the breasts
may still be tender. Most
women can return to non-
strenuous school, work or
social activities in 7 to 10
The best candidates for
this surgery are women
who are mature enough
to fully understand the
procedure and have real-
istic expectations about
the results. Every patient
and every physician has a
different view of what is
a desirable size and shape
for breasts.
In your initial consulta-
tion, it's important to
discuss your expectations
frankly with a board-
certified plastic surgeon,
and to listen to his or her
Breast reduction surgery
helps get rid of the physi-
cal discomfort of large
breasts, the body looks
better proportioned, and
clothes fit better. Chanc-
es are that, like most
young women, you will
be pleased with the re-

Bernie's Cleaners, dry

Bemie Audet was bor in

ing in the dry cleaning
business back when he
was only 13 years old with
his Aunt and Uncle back
home. Then, in 1992, Ber-
nie decided it was time to
spread his wings and fly
solo. The result was him
opening his first Bemie's

Bemie's Cleaners is lo-
cated at the intersection
of Powerline and Camino

owner of the dry cleaning

shop, has been in business
in Boca Raton for nine-
teen years. The shop sits
at the ground floor of an
office building and shares
space with an alteration
store. Adding flare to the
storefront is Sammy, a
twenty-two year old white
cockatoo. Audet has been
setting up Sammy's cage
on the sidewalk for years.
It's a nice decoration and
conversation piece, but

tomer asks."
Bemie grabs a hanger off
the dry cleaning convey-
or and walks back to the

Hurricane season begins slowly; August

and September await

By Donovan Ortega

The 2010 hurricane sea-
son began with tremen-
dous predictions of storms
swarming the Atlantic
basin. It had the poten-
tial to be the most active
hurricane season in fifty
years said the NOAA
and Colorado State Uni-
versity, two of the most
valued institutions in re-
spect to hurricane season
analysis. But June and
July have come and gone
and only two storms have
been named. Alex was
the first storm to form in
the Atlantic Ocean in June
since 1995 and struck
Mexico as a weak catego-
ry 2 hurricane. Tropical

storm Bonnie formed in
mid July and made land-
fall near Biscayne Bay,
FL on July 23rd, twitter-
ing out into the Gulf of
Mexico and dissipating.
Aside from those two
storms and a few tropi-
cal depressions, the 2010
season has been quiet.
"Given all the pre-season
hype about what a busy
season we're supposed
to be having, June and
July have been boring to
the point of being humor-
ous," said Howard Han-
son, oceanographer and
meteorologist at Florida
Atlantic University.
Storm season prediction
is a bit of a crapshoot
due to the multitude of

factors involved, but
the slow start is surpris-
ing given the favorable
conditions to hurricane
formation in the Atlantic
Ocean this summer.
"The best explanation
I've heard has to do with
the atmospheric loading
of dust blowing off the
Sahara Desert and drift-
ing across the tropical/
sub-tropical Atlantic,"
said Hanson, "This dust
absorbs sunlight and
heats up the upper tro-
posphere, stabilizing it
against the organized
deep convection that
turns into tropical cy-
It is important to note
that historically, June

and July are the slowest
months of any hurricane
season, while August and
September are the most
active. Between the year
1900 and 2006, a total
of 27 seven major hurri-
canes (category 3, 4, and
5) have struck the United
States in August, while
47 have hit in Septem-
ber. Thus, it is imperative
that the citizens of Boca
Raton remain vigilant.
August and September
have the potential to be
extremely active, and
it only takes one strong
storm to make the 2010
hurricane season memo-

Diver/photographer dies while

filming locally for National Geographic

ley Skiles, 52, of High
Springs, Fla.,died while
taking photographs for
National Geographic
magazine near the Boyn-
ton Beach Inlet about 3
p.m. Wednesday, July 21.
The Palm Beach Coun-
ty Sheriff's Office said
Skiles was diving with
a group of people three
miles east of the Boynton
Beach Inlet. Skiles was
filming locally for Na-
tional Geographic.

According to reports,
Skiles motioned to one of
his divers that he was as-
cending because he was
out of film. One of the
other divers saw him mak-
ing his way to the surface
but continued working and
did not continue to watch
Skiles. Several minutes
later, the remaining divers
decided to ascend.
As the remaining divers
made their way to the
surface, they saw Skiles'
body lying at the bottom

of the ocean floor, near
the reef, motionless. The
divers quickly took hold
of him and rushed him to
the surface.
Skiles was pulled onto
the vessel by the captain.
CPR was immediately ad-
ministered as they made
their way to the marina.
The photographer was
transported to the emer-
gency room of St. Mary's
Hospital where he was
pronounced dead, said

LeBron mania has officially
hit Florida. It's been over a
month and a half since '"The
Decision" but only now
has Miami really been in-
troduced to the mania hype
that this NBA season will
bring. The Miami Heat ap-
parel has been burning up
the shelves of local sports
stores; it's been hard to find
a Chris Bosh, or LeBron
James Heat jersey.
The one you will always see
though is Dwyane Wade.
What's going on? Has the
state gone mad forgotten
that our MV3 has been in
Miami since day one? Have
you forgotten he is the one
that brought LeBron and
Bosh to Miami? Remem-
ber what he said at the press
conference? "At the end of
the day, I always said I was
going to do what was best
for my family. And then I
thought about it, and Miami
is my family, this organiza-
tion is my family. So I did
what was best for my fam-
He loves us-he stayed
here in sunny south beach
instead of leaving us for his
cold hometown of Chicago.
But for some peculiar rea-
son, you don't see his jersey
flying off the shelf.
What's the explanation for

this great feat? The fair-
weather, bandwagon fans.
You know, the ones that for
the last two years have been
diehard Lakers fan, the ones
that three years ago were
Celtics fans? Yeah, those
people. The kind of fans
that if asked to name the
starting lineup of the Heat
last season would only be
able to name Wade.
Now, all of a sudden people
are calling the Heat LeB-
ron's team, LeBron's King-
dom, James' Clan. These
people not only annoy me,
but annoy the diehard Heat
fans who were part of the
2006 Championship glory,
but also part of the 15-67
misery. The ones who were
here for their team when
they saw the American Air-
lines Arena filled to capac-
ity and sold out every game,
and were also here when
the Arena was empty and
people practicality gave you
free Heat tickets.
Nothing wrong with LeB-
ron, he's one of the greatest
players in the NBA, if not
the best.
But, he will never be Wade.
I read somewhere about this
analogy that LeBron was
A-Rod and Wade was Jeter.
That was dead on. A-Rod
is a better player than Jeter,

but Jeter is the face of the
team, he's the one that has
been there since day one.
He's the one the fans love.
A-Rod at times was regard-
ed as the guy who was chas-
ing that elusive ring.
I hope LeBron wins his ring.
He will be loved in Miami,
that's for sure. People will
say that LeBron brought a
championship to Miami.
But that's false. If he did, he
would have already won a
few rings in Cleveland.
Wade has a ring, so no mat-
ter how many rings the
Three Kings win, Wade
will always be one ahead.
He will always be the fan
favorite in Miami, he will
always be the last player to
be announced at player in-
troduction, and his legacy
will forever be enshrined
with the Heat.
I guess it comes with the
territory. Having one of the
best teams in the world will
bring a few hundred fans
wanting a winning team.
But for all you newly pro-
claimed Heat fans, word of
advice to you, The Miami
Heat will never be LeBron's
Miami is the City of Wade,
this is his house, his team.
LeBron is simply a room-
mate in Wade's house

Steve Geffrard is Good as Gold -

By: Pedro Heizer

As I walked into the Po-
lice Athletic League gym,
I must admit, I was wor-
ried. Worried that Steve
Geffrard was going to be
one of those types of box-
ers who could come in
with his nose in the air and
not really care about what
I said. Boy was I ever
wrong. Steve is one of the
few athletes out there that
didn't let his fame get to
him "the way I was raised
was to stay humble, and
stay grounded. I just try to
not let it get to my head."
Well, Steve, I wish more
athletes were like you.
So, as I anxiously awaited
there in the boxing gym
for Steve, alas, the door
opened and in comes this
guy with glasses, and tex-
ting his life away on his
Blackberry. And then it
hit me "wow, he's nor-
mal after all!" he was all
smiles when I introduced

myself to him. He seemed
like he actually cared
about other people, some-
thing I haven't seen much
of with other athletes.
This kid is remarkable, I
asked what got him in the
boxing business and he
simply said "A friend of
mine took me to the Boca
Raton Police Athletic
League when I was only
13 years old... and I saw
the other guys in the box-
ing gym lifting weights
and I was very curious
and I got into boxing from
that day." That's great,
he's athletic and humble.
A graduate of St. An-
drews High School here
in Boca, starting in Sep-
tember, Steve will be at-
tending the Wayne Huiz-
enga School of Business
at Nova Southeastern
University. He will have
to juggle an Olympic ca-
reer and the everyday life
of an average college stu-
dent at the same time. But,

if there was an athlete that
I think could handle this,
it would be Steve.
Listen, this kid is destined
for greatness; he's got his
eye set on the prize and
will accomplish it at any
cost. His goal is simple:
"I want to represent the
US in the Olympics es-
pecially in the heavy-
weight division, because
we haven't won a gold
medal in that division in
so many years" with his
eyes set on gold, he has
become the golden stan-
dard of boxing with his
great victories, the latest
being a win at the USA
National Championships
in Colorado Springs at the
Olympic training center.
So here is to you Steve,
the athlete that has made
a difference. An athlete
that came up from a hum-
ble beginning and never
lost sight of where you
came from while look-
ing ahead to the future. I

wish more athletes would
be like you, care about
people, be humble, and
never forget where you
came from. I'm sure you
will win Olympic Gold
for the USA. We here at

The Boca Raton Tribune
are rooting for you, you
are not only an athlete we
will look up to, but you
are our hometown hero,
no matter the outcome.
Good Luck.
