As if it's not weird enough that Axl Rose and Elton
John performed together at a 1992 AIDS benefit, they
ended up performing the Queen song "Bohemian
Rhapsody." They later did a duet of "November Rain"
by Guns N' Roses. Elton John also joined Eminem
for a performance of Stan at the Grammys, around
the time Eminem was having homophobia problems.

A safety tip from Boca Raton Police

Q: Does my child need to sit in a booster seat
in the car? Why?

A: Vehicle seat belts are designed to fit an aver-
age-sized adult. To get the best protection from a
seat belt, children usually need a booster seat un-
til they are about 4 feet 9 inches tall and weight
80 to 100 pounds. A child can transition to a seat
belt when their back and bottom are against the
vehicle seat, knees bent over the edge of the
vehicle seat, feet flat on the floor, shoulder belt
resting across their chest and shoulder and lap
belt sitting low across their hips.

Crime and safety questions are answered by of-
ficers from the Crime Prevention Unit. For more
information, visit www.BocaPolice.com.

Abrams demands 'more cuts, more outsourcing'

to reduce county's 2010-2011 budget

Story, photo by
Dale M. King

4 Palm Beach County
Commissioner Steven A-
brams is still wielding the
ax that he took from Boca
Raton municipal office to
the county's governing
He said he doesn't like the
reductions being brought
to the table by County
Administrator Bob Weis-
man. "I didn't support
this approach," he said. "I
want more cuts and more
"I'm convinced we should
cut the budget lower," he
said. "I won't support it
unless we do cut lower."
He said that the problem
facing commissioners is
"when we make cuts, var-
ious groups ask us to re-
store them." He said that
about 150 to 200 business
leaders asked the board to
restore the 10 percent cut
in the Business Develop-
ment Board's budget. "I
didn't support it, even
though I am pro-business.
I would prefer to see that
amount (about $100,000)
go toward job creation."
But it passed anyway.
The commissioner did
remind those in the audi-
ence that a proposed sales
tax rate hike to cover
a portion of the cost of

4 On
the evening of July 21,
the Boca Raton police
and officers from other
surrounding agencies re-
ceived an Amber Alert
from the Miramar Police
Department regarding the
welfare of a woman, Jo-

county fire-rescue service
has been eliminated.
Right now, it appears
county taxpayers might
face about a 9 percent
increase in their tax rate
with the $4.80 per $1,000
valuation that's on the
table. The final numbers
won't be decided upon
until September for the
$4 billion budget that
goes into effect Oct. 1.
Speaking at the Federa-
tion of Boca Raton Home-
owners Associations'
monthly meeting Aug. 3,
Abrams a former Boca
Raton City Council mem-
ber and mayor for seven
years discussed nume-
rous challenges such as
the 2010-11 $100 mil-
lion budget shortfall and
the process that includes
eliminating and/or re-

during the funding for
numerous programs and
One challenge that seems
to have dissipated is the
danger of oil from the
Gulf spill ruining the
shoreline of Palm Beach
County. "The fears of it
getting into the loop cur-
rent" have abated, he said.
"We dodged that bullet."
But that does leave the re-
mainder of hurricane sea-
son to worry residents. A-
brams noted that a Palm
Beach County desk has
been added to the Boca
Raton Emergency Opera-
tions Center which will
provide increased coordi-
nation and communica-
tion countywide in case
of a hurricane or other e-
Some of news Abrams

delivered was a bit grim.
The county property tax
appraiser, for example,
predicts two more years
of property value declines
before things get better.
On the issue of branding
Palm Beach County, he
noted that the Tourism
Development Council has
brought someone in to help
in this area.
But Abrams is still fu-
ming about how Boca,
Delray and Deerfield lost
the Scripps project to Ju-
piter by former County
Commissioner Addie
Greene's vote that broke
a 3-3 tie. He said a cam-
pus similar to the Scripps
facility in La Jolla, Calif,
could have been created
in and around Boca. To
spread these out, as is be-
ing done in Jupiter, "is
not as effective."
In addition, the commis-
sioner discussed ongo-
ing economic initiatives
to stimulate local job
growth such as an expe-
dited permitting process
and incentives for new
businesses. But he also
noted that one large Boca-
based firm, U.S. Foodser-
vice, expanded its "huge
distribution facility" with-
out incentives. He said the
company is the second
largest food delivery firm
in the nation.

Voters head to polls Tuesday,

Aug. 24, to narrow candidate

field for November election
The political yammering that's been going on
for months will, in part, come to an end Tues-
day, Aug. 24 when voters throughout Florida
cast ballots in the Democratic and Republican pri-
The balloting is a preliminary to the November elec-
tion, when the votes will be cast that decide the fate
of political hopefuls. In Boca Raton and throughout
Florida, the polls Tuesday will be open from 7 a.m.
to 7 p.m.
The electorate will, among other things, pare down
massive fields of 22 candidates running for U.S.
Senator and 12 seeking the governor's chair.
To date, it appears Marco Rubio is the odds-on fa-
vorite to win the GOP nod for U.S. Senator. The
Democratic primary will decide between Kendrick
Meek and Jeff Greene for the nominee in that party.
And Gov. Charlie Crist, who forsook the Republi-
cans to run without party designation, is the odds
Seeking the governor's chair are current Attorney
General Bill McCollum and Rick Scott, who have
been fighting a pitched battle on the GOP side.
Among Democrats, it appears Chief Financial Offi-
cer Alex Sink may win the day and battle the winner
of the McCollum-Scott match in November.
Locally, two Republicans and two Democrats are
seeking the Senate seat 25 vacated by Jeff Atwater.
Republicans Ellyn Bogdanoff and Carl Domino are
looking to carry that party's flag into the November
election. Kelly Skidmore and Miranda Rosenberg
are doing the same on the Democratic side.

Other races of local interest are:

* Democrats Lori Berman and Carole Penny Kaye
are seeking the House District 86 seat. Since there
are no Republicans or write-ins, the winner will be-
come the new state rep.

* Democrats Sheldon "Klassy" Klasfeld and Irving
"Irv" Slosberg are running for the House District 90
seat. The winner will face Republican Alison Ramp-
ersad in November.

* In School Board District 4, a non-partisan race,
voters will pare down a field of five candidates to
the two who will face each other in November. Of-
fice seekers are Jennifer Prior Brown, Anne Kan-
jian, Lowell Levine, John McGovern and Marilyn

* The School Board District 6 race is a three-person
contest that will be cut to two on
Tuesday. Office seekers are Ron
Young, William Corey Abrams and
Thomas Hawkins.

port. The victim told them he was riding his bicycle
home from work and was a few blocks from home,

Boca Raton Local po-
lice arrested six suspects
Aug. 7 for allegedly rob-

when a group of men attacked him. The suspects, who
apparently laid in wait for him, knocked him off his
bicycle, punched him numerous times, and stole his
wallet and work hat.
Boonenberg said the suspects ran back to their car,
which was parked in a nearby parking lot, and fled the
scene. A witness saw the suspects get into a Honda Ac-
cord and leave heading towards Glades Road.
Members of the Tactical Team located the vehicle and
the occupants. The suspect's hat was recovered from
inside the vehicle, as were several items of clothing
that he and the witness said the suspects were wearing
during the commission of the crime.
The following six suspects were arrested and charged
with strong-arm robbery: Dylan Besser, 17, Erik

Boca Raton city manager holds tax

line on 2010-2011 budget -

but with sacrifices

By Dale M. King

blic hearings will be held
in September on Boca
Raton City Manager Leif
Ahnell's proposed general
fund operating budget of
$116,996,900 for 2010-
2011, up $673,800 from
the current fiscal year.
Some may want to com-
pliment him for again
holding the tax rate at vir-
tually the same level as
the past several years.
Others may want to argue
the viability of the sacri-
fices required to keep the
tax rate stable.
No matter what, Ahnell
has already explained the
city's proposed spending
package at two forums -
a public meeting Aug. 9
at City Hall; the other as
keynote speaker at Aug.
12's Greater Boca Raton
Chamber of Commerce
membership breakfast.
At both meetings, the city
manager explained the
difficulties of preparing
a budget that meets state
spending requirements.
Actually, the tax rate (also
called the millage rate) is
up just a hair, going from
$3.34 per $1,000 valu-
ation last year to $3.69
per $1,000 valuation in
the fiscal year that begins
Oct. 1.But he said the "the
average homeowner will
pay the same amount of
property taxes to the city

as last year [because] of
the decline in assessed
value" of their property.
Ahnell explained to Cham-
ber members that the total
value of property in Boca
Raton has dropped 6.81
percent from last year, or
a loss of $1.2 billion. Fa-
cing that challenge, he
said, "We had to refocus
and realign."
To meet the budget figure,
the city will again have
to dip into the person-
nel pool. Ahnell said 35
job positions -18 vacant
and 17 that are currently
filled will be cut. The
city hasn't laid off anyone
for budget reasons in four
He is also proposing the
closure of the city's youth
center in FY 2010-211.

Other cutbacks planned
in Ahnell's budget are:
* Delay vehicle and equi-
pment purchases.
* Reduce hours that both
city libraries will be open.
* Reduce hour that tennis
centers will be open.
* Close Spanish River Park
on Tuesday, Wednesdays
and Thursdays.
* Reduce the use of secu-
rity guards.
* Discontinue the hard-
copy edition of "The Rec-
reator" and run the listings
only online.
To cover the budget, resi-
dents will see an increase
from $40 to $60 annually
in the fire assessment fee.
The portion of the rubbish
fee paid by those living
in the city will increase
from $10 to $15 a month
for single family home-

owners ana irom 1 3./4
to $8.61 per month for
residents of multi-family
At the Chamber meeting,
Ahnell said residents will
see the city make "a sig-
nificant realignment of
resources." He said top
priorities are the budget
direction, economic de-
velopment, operation of
the Miner Park Amphi-
theater which the city has
just taken over, funding
for downtown events and
projects, continuing study
of the feasibility of charter
schools and seeing how a
new overlay district for
the Arvida Park of Com-
merce works out.
The city manager said the
community is adopting
new Comprehensive Plan
regulations, ones designed
to improve the business
climate. He said the city
also plans to set aside
more than $4 million to
attract and retain jobs by
offering financial incen-
tives to businesses that are
relocating to or expanding
in the city.
In fact, Boca plans to hire
an economic development
director as part of that ef-
The city manager said there
are positive things about
the upcoming budget.
The city's overall assessed
value of $16.5 billion is
among the highest in south
Florida. The tax rate is per-
haps the lowest among full-
service cities in the south-
ern tier. Water and sewer
rates, he said, are generally
lower than most surround-
ing communities.

nancial stories
hit the press-
room floor last
Boca Raton City Mana-
ger Leif Ahnell released
his budget for fiscal year
2010-2011. As he has in
most prior years, he has
held the tax rate line,
despite a terribly nega-
tive economy and some
spending cuts that will
force layoffs and service
I'm likely not the only

how Ahnell manages to
balance the budget while
still meeting all the cost-
cutting mandates imposed
by the state.

I remember sitting
at a Florida Atlantic
University Board Da
of Trustees meeting
just a few years ago when
then-BRCH CEO Gary
Strack told the crowd that
the hospital was planning
to build a new facility on
the campus. It would be
designed to work hand-
in-glove with the univer-
sity's fledgling medical
education program.
We hung onto the idea.
Not long after that, the
Schmidt Foundation an-
nounced it was going to
donate $75 million to
the hospital construction
fund. It seemed like a go.
Then, the economic ceil-
ing fell in. Boca hospi-
tal's red ink overflowed.
It eventually scrapped
the new hospital idea and
pulled out of the coopera-
tive effort with FAU.
News from the hospital


was grim. Eventually,
they hired a management
company that specializes
in saving failed hospitals.
That was the thing to
do. Jerry Fedele
from that compa-
ny, along with
his colleagues,
turned the defi-
cit around, revel-
ing in each quarter
when just a few
dollars were saved.
Fedele became the CEO,
and the facility that was
once called "The Mira-
cle on Meadows Road"
achieved another miracle
- a turn from deficit to
profit in just four years.
Those of us familiar with
how Boca hospital came
about were particularly
proud. And certainly Glo-
ria Drummond, who led
the drive to build a hos-
pital back in the 1960s,
must also be proud. It's
good to see that the com-
munity will honor her on
her 80th birthday next
I know the turnaround at
BRCH wasn't easy. Peo-
ple lost jobs in the pro-
cess. I worked with folks
whose friends and family
were eliminated from the

staff. And losing a job is
a terrible thing to hap-
pen, particularly in these
difficult economic times
when so many people are
suffering through the frus-
tration of finding work.
But BRCH is back on the

Political talk show host, Joyce

Kaufman, speaks in Boca Raton

Joyce Kaufman receiving a book, The History of the Jews, from the AICC

By Donovan Ortega

Controversial political talk
show host Joyce Kaufman
spoke to a packed house in
Boca Raton on Monday,
August 9th. The American-
Israel Chamber of Com-
merce (AICC) sponsored
the event at the European
Cafe and guests enjoyed
dinner and drinks. Execu-
tive Director of the AICC,
Linda Chase, chaired the
proceedings. Among the
many attendees were Glo-
ria and Milton Brenner of
the West Boca Community
Council. As they sat at their
table waiting for dinner ser-
vice, they explained why
they came to see Kaufman.
"She's got a lot to say and
I want to see where she's at
on the issues. She's a hot
lady," said Gloria Brenner
"She cuts right to the bone
and doesn't mince her
words," added Gloria's
husband, Milton Brenner.
True to form, Kaufman
didn't shy away from con-
troversy. In about fifteen
minutes she broached a
number of hot button is-
sues that included: lam-
basting American immi-
gration policy, stating that
the American press delib-
erately portrays Israel neg-
atively, claiming American

universities are filled with
Palestinian and Egyptian
professors that, "poison
our children's minds", and
likening Zionism to entre-
preneurship. She scoffed at
the notion that critics could
boycott Israeli products.
"I would like to see peo-
ple try and boycott Israeli
goods," said Kaufman
while standing at the po-
dium with a wry smile.
"They'd have to turn off
their computers. We'd see
the Darwinian theory take
effect," she quipped to ap-
plause and laughter. It is
Kaufman's ability to firmly
address multiple issues in a
short span that entices her
listeners to tune in, and is
why she describes herself
as, "one long run on sen-
And Kaufman didn't stop
talking at the podium. She
spoke readily to anyone
that approached her, affec-
tionately answering ques-
tions before and after the
event. It is one of the rea-
sons she enjoys speaking
"It's great because I can
make a connection with
people in person that I
can't do over the radio,"
said Kaufman. "A major-
ity of my listeners never
call in, so when they see
me they can express them-

selves. They can tell me if
I moved them, or if they're
mad at me. It's great."
After Kaufman was fin-
ished speaking, Linda
Chase, Executive Director
of American-Israel Chap-
ter of Commerce, proposed
a champagne toast and
then opened up the room
for questions. A man in the
front row volunteered and
queried about the Iranian
nuclear situation, asking
what was going to happen
ifIran developed an atomic
Kaufman paused for a mo-
ment, thinking carefully.
"Well, I don't have a crystal
ball, but I can give you my
opinion," she answered. "I
think Iran will complete
their mission to make a
bomb. And then Israel will
complete them."
While Kaufman might
not be a fortune-teller, she
freely shares her strong
"I'm just glad that I have
a microphone today,"
said Kaufman, "Israel has
been defending itself for
a long time. The Jewish
community has not had a
voice and throughout my
career, no matter what my
political affiliation, I have
always supported Israel."

serious cost-cutting mea-

specializes in reviving fi-

facilities have apparently
combined to pull Boca
Raton Community Hos-
pital out of a deep well of

Officials at BRCH an-

tution earning a profit of
just over one-half million
Hospital leaders said the

feat represents a $120
million improvement in
financial results from
2008 and marks the first
time the hospital has been
profitable since 2006.
About half of the $120
million improvement,
they said, is attributable
to improvements in oper-
ating performance, with
half attributed to changes
in non-operating gains
and losses and one-time
adjustments recorded in

ter of the fiscal year and

Boca Raton Community Hospital makes

profit for first time in four years

two straight quarters
of a positive bottom
line operationally.
"Our fiscal year re-
sults are outstanding
news for our hospi-
tal, our staff ...and
for our local residents,"
said Jerry Fedele, presi-
dent and CEO at BRCH.
"Just 18 months ago,
this important commu-
nity asset faced daunting
financial pressures. The
financial improvement
has stabilized our posi-
tion and is certainly one
of the most significant
turnarounds in the health-
care industry. It is strong
testimony to the talents -
and the dedication of our
physicians, nurses, sup-
port staff, volunteers and
philanthropists who made
this amazing comeback
Fedele also emphasized


the importance of the hos-
pital's recent gains from
operations. "Establishing
and sustaining operation-
al profitability is critical
to a hospital's success,"
he said. "We are very en-
couraged by our recent re-
sults in this regard."
For the year, BRCH re-
alized total operating
revenues of $346.5 mil-
lion on adjusted admis-
sions of 39,313. Operat-
ing EBITDA (Earnings
Before Interest, Taxes,
Depreciation and Amor-
tization) was $27.8 mil-
lion, an $18.8 million im-
provement over the prior
year and a $63.4 million
improvement compared
to 2008.
During fiscal year 2010,
operating expenses were
reduced by nearly $9 mil-
lion as compared to the
prior year and $32.2 mil-

lion from fiscal year 2008.
"We were successful in
managing our expenses
while improving our ca-
pabilities and program-
matic strengths," Fedele
said. He noted that the
hospital was designated
by HealthGrades as a
"Distinguished Hospital
for Clinical Excellence"
in 2010 and was ranked
by HealthGrades number
one in the state of Florida
for both cardiac surgery
and gastrointestinal care,
number two for stoke ca-
re and number three for
overall cardiac services.
The Hospital's Emergen-
cy Medical Services and

were also listed in the top

When it comes to getting
your back-to-school shop-
ping list together, think
funky and fun no mat-
ter what age from pre-
schoolers to the college
crowd. There is no way
you can't make the best
fashion grades ever if you
put a few of these trends to
the style test this fall. Start
researching the stores and
your favorite online sites
now to book the A-list
trends before the first bell
rings. Here's your check-
list for cool school:
o Graphic print T-shirts
and tanks. For kids young
and old, the T-shirt still
reigns. For younger kids,
it's "Small Paul," a new
collection by Paul Frank
that brings the monkey to
the funky tees; for older
teens, it's the rocker bands
that play up the fun aspect
of wearing fashion that
says something about you.
o Lots of layering pieces.
You can't have enough
T-shirts and tank tops be-
cause these are the basis of
everything kids throw on
each morning before they
catch the bus. So stock up

to be a new way
to get your denim fix, but
you can't go wrong with
scoping out your favorite
collections for the newest
looks. And the latestjeans
this year are the most
"distressed." Think casual
and relaxed. They even
may have a few holes in
o Roll 'em up. The dark
skinny jean is still around
but wom with cuffs rolled
up an extension of sum-
mer's much-loved Capri
styles. Or go for a carpen-
ter-style look that is looser
and sports a chic utilitar-
ian style.
o Print it. Leggings are
another favorite trend
for the back-to-school
girls club, from bold pat-
ters to sleek and black.
Teamed with fun boots
or high-top sneakers, leg-
gings are another way to
add some layering power
to a back-to-school shop-
ping list for all ages.
o Goody for hoodies.
Think about it. You buy
the jeans, and you buy the
leggings. You buy the T-
shirts and the tanks. Then
you cover it all up when

cool weather comes on
the scene with soft knit
hoodies or zip-front jack-
ets. This fall, the newest
ones are bright in colors
and patterns. Add a "puff-
er" coat for chillier days.
o Mad for plaid. It's been
a schoolhouse style basic
since the "old" days, but
the plaids, checks and
stripes this fall are any-
thing but "old school."
Think bright and bold,
again even neon colors
that will rock even the
nursery-school class in
madras and buffalo plaids.
For the older teens, flan-
nel gets edgy layered with
textured vests and denim
o We're in the army now.
The military trend con-
tinues to be a big hit for
back-to-school fashion
news. Think epaulets and
shoulder details dusty
neutral colors, such as ol-
ive green, and camouflage
prints accented with pale
pink jackets and tops with
military-inspired buttons
and trims. Cargo pants
and leggings in camou-
flage prints also are rising
to the top of the class.

No. 1 academic fash-
ion rule? Get the basics
down first, and then pile

"extra points" the de-
constructed scarves (that
look like something you

The Boca Raton Tribune BACK TO SCHOOL East/West Boca Raton, FL

With many schools losing
funding for extracurricular
activities, it's become the
students' grass-roots cam-
paigns and unique ideas
for fund-free groups that
bring compelling special
interest clubs into their high
schools. Even without a
school system's thousands
of dollars in support for
arts and interest programs,
these clubs keep popping
up in the ultimate show of
the teen generation's power
to create and to keep a club
thriving.How do you start
a new club in school? We
have the seven essential
steps for founding an of-
ficial, recognized special
interest club:
1. First, come up with an
original, popular idea.
Consider the clubs the
school already offers so
that you're not competing
with an existing group, and
also look at the different
community clubs run by
churches and synagogues
or by youth groups in your
area to make sure you're
not encroaching on anyone
else's concept or siphon-
ing away any other club's
members. Then make a list
of the possible new groups
you could start, asking your

friends about which types
of clubs they would join
if such clubs existed. Very
often, students know what
they'd like to do; the club
just doesn't exist yet.
2. Gather a few found-
ing members, asking your
friends to join you as you
work to create a new club
at school. When you get to
one of the most essential
steps approaching the fac-
ulty for permission to start
your group you can show
that you're serious and that
other students would join
you by providing a list of
your friends who are al-
ready on board.
3. Further preparing to
meet with faculty, plan out
the foundations of your
club: How often will you
meet? Once a week? Twice
a month? Where will you
meet? In the cafeteria? In a
classroom? When will you
meet? After school? Be-
fore school? What are your
club's goals? You may de-
cide to add a fundraising
element to your club -- for
instance, with the hiking
club signing on to a charity
5k at the end of the school
year. These details put in
print will show the fac-
ulty and the school board,


again, that you're serious
about starting a quality
4. Next, recruit a faculty ad-
viser. Most school boards
require clubs to have teach-
ers or coaches overseeing
their meetings and mak-
ing sure that they adhere
to bylaws and rules about
school-sanctioned groups.
The school board likely has
a thick file of forms for you
and your parents to sign,
absolving it of any legal
responsibilities if someone
were to, say, break a toe at
skateboard club.
5. Be aware that your
school may say no. Sadly,
we do live in a legal-mind-
ed and legal-scared society,
and your school may not
have the insurance needed
to cover your club. So cov-
er your bases and show the
advisers that you're ready
to run a quality club, with
your faculty adviser, and
that you won't require a
massive outlay of funds to
do so. 6. Establish your
plan to raise the money you
will need to make signs to
attract new members, to ac-
quire supplies and for any
other expenses. A carwash
or bake sale probably could
raise the money you need.
7. Once you get the green
light from the
school board

Raton Community
Hospital's Christine E.
Lynn Heart and Vas-
cular Institute (LHVI)
has made the first use in
the state of Florida, and
only the fourth use in
the nation, of a recently
FDA-approved device to
exclude the left atrial ap-
pendage, a site associated
with stroke in atrial fibril-
lation (afib) patients.
James Morris, MD and
medical director of the In-
stitute recently implanted
what is known as the Atri-
ClipTM into a 71-year-old
male patient with atrial
fibrillation who had been
admitted to the hospital
suffering from an intra-
cranial bleed. The patient
has since been discharged
in good condition.
Patients with atrial fibril-
lation, or irregular heart-
beat, have a five times
higher risk of suffering
a stroke than people who
don't have the condition,
according to the Framing-
ham Heart Study, which
followed more than 5,000
patients for more than 30
Physicians believe this
increased risk is associ-
ated with the failure of
the left atrium to fully
evacuate blood during
atrial fibrillation. The
blood then pools in a cul-
de-sac within the left atri-
um called the left atrial
appendage (LAA). The
LAA is a small pouch at-
tached to the left atrium
containing irregular inte-
rior surfaces called tra-
beculations. In patients
with atrial fibrillation

The AtriClip, a device that
cuts off blood to the left atrial
appendage of the heart as a
means of preventing strokes,
is being used at Boca Raton
Community Hospital.
clots can form in these
areas. These clots can
then migrate through the
circulatory system, block
circulation to key struc-
tures in the body and lead
to stroke.
"We believe over 90 per-
cent of clots form in the
left atrial appendage,"
said Dr. Morris. "By oc-
cluding, or cutting off
blood flow into the LAA,
we can dramatically re-
duce the chance of stroke
for patients with afib."
Prior to the development
of the AtriClip, surgeons
used a stapler to remove
the LAA, or sutured the
appendage shut. Studies,
however, showed that
only about 40 percent of
these procedures success-
fully closed the LAA.
With the AtriClip, sur-
geons place the device
around the left atrial ap-
pendage using minimal-
ly invasive or "keyhole"
techniques, which provide
significant benefits to the
patient over conventional
open-heart procedures. The
AtriClip is then closed
and functions as a clamp
to cut off the blood flow
between the LAA and left
atrium. The LAA is then
reabsorbed by the body

"The left atrial appen-
dage is much like the
body's appendix. It per-
forms no physiologic
function. It is simply a
reservoir, if you will, for
the heart's left atrium,"
commented Dr. Morris.
"Thus, the logic behind
the AtriClip is quite ele-
gant. If the LAA presents
all risk but no reward to
the afib patient, why not
simply eliminate it."
Another significant be-
nefit of the AtriClip pro-
cedure is the potential for
afib patients not to have
to take anticoagulation
medications such as Cou-
madin, long a mainstay
therapy for this patient
population. "If one takes
out the repository where
clots form, it stands to
reason there could be a
concomitant elimination
of the use of anticoagu-
lants and their significant
side effects." said Dr. Mor-
Dr. Morris was quick to
emphasize that this bene-
fit was limited to afib pa-
tients and not those using
anticoagulant therapy for
conditions like deep vein
thrombosis or after an-
gioplasty. "While we are
very encouraged relative
to the two-fold benefits of
the AtriClip procedure, it
is essential that the public
knows the therapy is ap-
plicable only to patients
with atrial fibrillation and
high risk for stroke," he
said. "For that particular
patient population, this is
a tremendous advance in
the care we can offer."

ETe Jcta R aton Tribune
By Diane Feen

Having fun over 50; age is really just another number

If you're looking
at big numbers on
your next birth-
day, don't despair,
you're not alone.
According to the
US Census Bureau, Dan
every 7 seconds so-
meone in the US turns
50. If that's not enough to
scare you then you might
not want to know that 41
percent of all U.S. adults
are already over 50.
The good news is that
in South Florida, turning
50 means you are pretty
young. Add that to the news
that 50 is the new 30 and
you should be pretty happy.
There's been a lot written
about how to keep your
brain young, your body
youthful and your psyche
in its infancy, but much of
that is clever marketing.
To those who don't mind
growing older gracefully
this curse of aging is, well,
just a number. Youthful-
ness is really a state of
mind (unless you have a
large mirror) and can be

maintained with
social activities and
a good attitude
(therapy helps here
as well).
Because of this on-
Feen slaught of over-50
folks (we're called
Baby Boomers), there are
more and more activities in
the pipeline (just not speed
dating). The most impor-
tant one coming up is the
Orlando@50+ being hos-
ted by AARP. I know the
word AARP sends shivers
down the spine of some
50+ folks, but let's face
it, everyone gets older, no
matter how rich, how pret-
ty or how kind you are. So
sit back and enjoy the ride.
That's why we wanted to
let you know about the
Orlando@50+ event held
by AARP in Orlando from
September 30 to October
2. This extravaganza of
entertainment, informa-
tion, social activities, fa-
mous speakers, concerts
and 400,000 square feet of
exhibitors (there are 350

of them) sounds pretty
amazing. And no one has
to know how old you are.
The idea here is to have
fun being what (and who)
you are.
"Orlando@50+ is geared
specifically to address the
wants and needs of people
age 50+. It's to help them
live their best life and dis-
cover what's next, in all
areas, whether it be health
& fitness, entertainment &
relationships, or techno-
logy and finances. We've
got something for every-
one," said A. Barry Rand,
Some of the special guests
(and speakers) will be
Whoopi Goldberg, Rob
Reiner, Larry King, Jane
Pauley, the Dog Whisperer,
Cesar Millan, Olympia Du-
kakis and Martina Navrati-
lova. Entertainers attend-
ing are Gladys Knight,
B.B. King, Crosby Stills &
Nash, Gloria Gaynor, Patty
Loveless, Richie Havens,
Los Lobos, Judy Collins
and Marlo Thomas.

If you are old enough to
remember "Lassie" or
"Father Knows Best,"
then you can feel free
to reminisce with your
boomer pals at this event.
Hopefully you won't
be bombarded with talk
about the hazards of aging
or shamed by pictures and
editorial about how you
can find an Ashton Kutch-
er look-a-like (chances
are slim).
There is also a pre-event
get-together on Septem-
ber 29th at Universal Or-
lando. There is a charge
for this, but you can enjoy
the park, meet new people
(the demographics are in
your favor, ladies), eat
great food and dance at
the bars and clubs of Uni-
versal's CityWalk enter-
tainment complex. And
the best part is that you
won't find yourself stand-
ing next to a pretty young
thing who doesn't know
who the Beatles are.

members calls himself
Mississippi Charles Bev-
el, because that state is the
heart of blues country.
Small, thin and wiry, Bev-
el looks like a character
from the 1920s, which in
a sense he is.

His first song, which
comes after Sandra
Reaves-Phillips' introduc-
tory "They Call Me Big
Mama," is a sly double
entendre ditty entitled
"Jelly Roll Baker."
Now I know about Jelly
Roll Morton, but I had
never heard of Lonnie
Smith, author of this mu-
sical sexual metaphor. I
looked him up and discov-
ered an archetypical story
of the blues: born 1899,
prolific period of record-
ing productivity 1925-32,
comeback in 1939, then
long, slow decline un-
til Smith was reduced to
working as a janitor in
Philadelphia before being

rediscovered and touring
until being hit by a car in
Toronto and dying a year
The blues is rooted in
sorrow, but on the flip
side it is all about the
joys of sex.
That's what creators
Randal Myler (director)
and Dan Wheetman (mu-
sic director) looked for
in their song selection.
These are "dirty blues"
tunes made famous by
the likes of Ma Rainey,
Sophie Tucker, Pearl
Bailey, Howlin' Wolf and
Muddy Waters.
All those gals were full-

So is Big Mama (San-

Good food, hefty portions,
affordable prices and a
comfortable atmosphere
designed for family dining
are among the many invit-
ing touches, said General
Manager Peter Kramer.
"Nobody leaves without
taking some of their meal
with them," said Kramer,
watching as people with
take-home containers
walked out the door of the
eatery at 233 South Feder-
al Highway, Boca Raton.
There are nine family-
owned Matteo's in all,
said Kramer five in New
York, one in Connecti-
cut and three in Florida
- Boca, Jupiter and Hal-
lendale. Three others are
in the works, in Orlando,
Westchester, N.Y and
"We serve Italian food
family style," he said.
E\ cir thing is made to or-

its own ingredients, add-
ing to the authentic Italian
flavor of its many meal of-
Patrons can enjoy half-
order and full orders of
chicken, eggplant and veal

dishes (Limone, Marsala,
Sorrentino, Pizzaiola and
Parmigiana, to name a
few). Seafood is another
staple at Matteo's. It's
always fresh and every-
thing can be ordered with
a variety of sides, said
Kramer. Choices of Ital-
ian favorites include lin-
guini, capellini, rigatoni,
fettucine, penne or whole
wheat pasta.
Kramer noted that Mat-
teo's menu also features
a "healthy corner," with
low-carbohydrate dishes
such as Zucchini Lingui-
ni, Shrimp Alla Wendy,
Grilled Chicken Paillard,
Grilled Shrimp Matteo's,
Veal Chop Paillard and
Chicken Mona.
The Boca Matteo's has a
270-seat dining area, and
by the time dinner hour ar-
rives, it's usually bustling
with customers enjoying
the fare. The restaurant's
motif is friendly and in-
viting, comfortable for
intimate parties of two

Founder Salvatore Sor-
rentino, with his two son's
Andrew and Matthew,
opened their first loca-
tion in New York 22 years
ago, serving delicious

platters of Italian comfort
food. Meals are prepared
by professional chefs. In
fact, the head chef at Mat-
teo's in Boca Ervin Lazo
- is also corporate chef for
all the Matteo's.
The family-run operation
came to Boca 10 years
ago. It was located across
the street from its current
location for more than six
years. It is now in a newly
constructed building with
valet parking in a garage
at the rear of the building.
Not only does Matteo's
have longevity, but so
does the staff. Kramer
said many have worked
for the company for 10,
15, even 20 years. He
joined Matteo's in Boca
nine years ago after oper-
ating his own restaurant,
and has been general man-
ager for two years. Lazo
has been with the opera-
tion more than 20 years,
and was the first chef at
the first eatery.
Those who dine at Mat-
teo's can choose from a
wide variety of wines,
mixed drinks from the bar
or a soft drink to accom-
pany their meal.
Catering on-site and off-
premises is also available.

Don't expect to be mesmerized by

Caldwell Theatre production,

'Comfort of Darkness'

in a scene Jrom clomJort oJ uarKness are, jrom lejt, Jessica Maguire, Jane ortney ana

Stevie Ray Dallimore.
By Skip Sheffield

a good sign when I don't
know quite what to say af-
ter seeing a play.
At least I know what the
title, "The Comfort of

Darkness," means. This
world premiere production
of a play by Joel Gross
continues through Sept. 5
at Caldwell Theatre Com-
pany, 7901 N. Federal
Highway, Boca Raton.
Concert pianist Maria-

Theresa von Paradis (Jes-
salyn Maguire) has been
blind since age 3. Blind-
ness has been no impedi-
ment to Maria-Theresa's
career. She can read Braille
as fast as sighted people
can read a book. If any-

thing, the darkness has
been a comfort zone into
which she can retreat.
Dr. Anton Mesmer (Ste-
vie Ray Dallimore) thinks
otherwise. He sees Maria-
Theresa's blindness as a
curable mental affliction,
and he believes he can
cure it through "animal
magnetism," which is his
term for an early form of
Maria-Theresa von Para-
dis and Dr. Anton Mesmer
were real-life figures who
lived in Vienna in 1777.
Mesmer's name inspired
the word "mesmerize;" to
put someone under a kind
of spell.
Playwright Joel Gross,
who visited Boca Raton
to consult with director
Clive Cholerton on the
production, used the story
of doctor and patient as a
what-if springboard for an
unlikely but perhaps in-
evitable romance.
Thereby perhaps lurks the
problem. Broadway actor
Robert Cuccioli ("Jekyll
and Hyde") was origi-
nally billed as star of the

Caldwell production.
For whatever reason Cuc-
cioli bowed out, and now
Dr. Anton Mesmer is
played by Stevie Ray Dal-
Dallimore is a handsome
devil, but looks are less
important to this role than
personal magnetism. Mes-
mer literally has the power
to probe into a person's
psyche and change that
person's mind. Despite
dramatic finger-pointing
flourishes, Dallimore just
doesn't quite radiate that
Jessalyn Maguire has a del-
icate, fragile beauty that is
perfect for Maria-Theresa
von Paradis. Though she
is only 22, Maria-Theresa
is a confident and secure
woman who is quite com-
fortable with her disability.
I think the playwright's
point is that some people
use disability as a shield
from deeper emotion.
When the doctor messes
with the patient's cozy lit-
tle world, he creates more
problems than he solves.
The real Dr. Mesmer died

poor and discredited. In
this play his best friend,
Dr. Otto von Stoerk, is the
voice of reason and bridge
between the medical es-
tablishment and Mesmer's
more far-out theories.
It's a rather thankless role
for Ken Kay, who was a
stalwart at Caldwell for
many years, and is now is
executive director of the
Burt Reynolds Institute for
Theatre Training.
Even more thankless is the
role of Dr. Mesmer's pa-
tient Francisca Oesterlin,
played by Jane Cortney as
one of the doctor's earlier
I guess the heart of the
problem is that Dr. Mes-
mer is a quack, and his
speeches sound like so
much poppycock. Why
any woman would fall un-
der this guy's spell is the
real mystery of this ornate,
beautifully-costumed and
designed but oddly un-
moving period piece.

T)e Jtoca aton Tribune

By Mike Gora

"What In The World Should I Do?" State legislature has made significant

I have heard it said many
times that the
two most difficult
things for anyone
to do are "To think"
and "To do things
in order of their
importance." To
think, to judge or Pastol
consider, or as the prophet
Haggai said, "to consider
our ways" is one of the
most important activities
in which we can engage.
One business writer has
described our thought-
less ways as an "urgency
addiction." He identifies
this tendency as the habit
of finding our security in
busyness. The "adrena-
line rush" of hurrying off
to handle important tasks
provides an artificial sen-
se of worth, power, con-
trol and accomplishment.
The problem is, over ti-
me, our real problems
worsen, important rela-
tionships suffer and we
find ourselves unfulfilled
and empty.

Being "urgency addictive"
is an age-old problem.
The story Jesus told of two
sisters, Martha and Mary,
gives insight into this
busyness problem. Mar-
tha welcomes Jesus into
her home and then goes
about the eastern custom
of making preparations
for their houseguest and
ultimately expresses her
frustration with Mary her

sister who wasn't helping
with preparations
but was rather sit-
ting at the feet of
Jesus. Jesus tells
Martha, "Martha,
Martha, you are
worried and both-
r Sandy ered about so many
things; but only a few
things are necessary, real-
ly only one, and Mary has
chosen the right one..."
(Luke 10.41-42 Bible)
The priorities of these
women brought about two
different results. One was
obsessed with doing, de-
riving all her self-worth
from what she did and it
resulted in fear and anxi-
ety to say nothing of the
frustration it brought oth-
er people. The other un-
derstood, at least at that
moment, what was really
important, and she exhi-
bited the fruit of delibe-
rate forethought about
the best things.
These two sisters repre-
sent all of us: people with
real struggles, making real
choices every day. "What
shall I do?" is a question
that challenges the bal-
ance between thinking
and doing. First, wisely
decide, then incorporate
the decision into lifestyle.

Learn to turn good
intentions into action.
While "prioritizing" has
to do with time manage-
ment "commitment" is

something quite diffe-
rent. Commitment is
probably best described
as "persistence with a
purpose." The most im-
portant single factor in
individual success is
mitment ignites action.
To commit is to pledge
yourself to a certain pur-
pose or line of conduct.
It means practicing your
beliefs consistently. There
are, therefore, two fun-
damental conditions for
commitment. The first is
having a sound set of be-
liefs. There is an old say-
ing that goes, "Stand for
something or you'll fall
for anything." The se-
cond is faithful adherence
to those beliefs with your
Some years ago, a news-
paper headline told about
three hundred whales
that died after becoming
marooned in a bay. They
became trapped while
pursuing sardines. One
commentator observed,
"The small fish lured
the giants to their death.
They came to their violent
demise by chasing small
ends, by prostituting vast
powers for insignificant
goals. "
Don't waste your life in
pursuit of trivial things!

As the legislative Mike Gora The extension of

session ground toward its
mandatory close, the two
separate measures were
merged into one bill, which
passed both the Senate and
the House, was signed by
the Governor and became
the law of Florida. Our
last column discussed the
changes in the alimony stat-
ue which went into effect on
July 1, 2010.
The second part of the bill,
which made changes to
the child support statute,
goes into effect on October
1, 2010 and on January 1,
2011. This column summa-
rizes the highlights of the
child support changes. The
complete text of the new
statute can be easily found
The first change required
that guidelines for child sup-
port provisions in settlement
agreements and/or final jud-
gments, for families with
two or more children, under
the age of 18 must include
the child support guidelines
amount for the children and
also the remaining child
support payable after each
child reaches the age of 18.
Initially, support must be
based upon the income of
the parents at the time of
the divorce, but the amount
may be modified by ei-
ther parent filing a petition
for modification under the
existing modification part
of the statute. The month,
day and year of the reduc-
tion, or reductions must be

child support to the age of
nineteen for a child enrolled
in high school after 18, but
before 19, was left intact.
A second change spells out
the purpose for child sup-
port as fulfilling the mutual
obligation of both parents
to support his or her minor
or legally dependant child.
This section contains a re-
statement or codification
of existing appellate de-
cisions, as opposed to a ma-
jor change.
The second major change
requires the imputation of
income to any parent who
is voluntarily unemployed
or under employed, or who
fails to participate in the
child support case. The sta-
tute creates a rebuttable
presumption that such a pa-
rent's imputed income be at
a level described as "income
equivalent to the median in-
come ofyear-round full time
workers as derived from cur-
rent population reports or re-
placement reports published
by the United States Bureau
of the Census."
Under previous law, auto-
matic imputation did not ex-
ist, but there was a presump-
tion that income could be
included at the "minimum
wage" level under federal
law. This change would, ap-
proximately double the im-
puted income, which could
be imputed, and used in cal-
culating child support.
The courts specifically re-
tained the power to impute

a higher income based upon
proof that was competent
and substantial that a party
could earn more than in-
come then provided for in
the statute, but voluntarily
refused to do so. Records
of past income cannot be
more than five years old to
be used as a basis for impu-
tation, and under most cir-
cumstances cannot be based
on a level of income that the
party has never earned.

Only nominal changes were
made to the child support
guidelines schedule. If the
parents' combined income
falls below the bottom range
in the child support guide-
lines, the court must set the
child support on a case by
case basis to establish a base
which can be modified if the
parents beginning to make
more money.
Under the amended statute,
the 25 percent discount of
the expense of reimburse-
ment of childcare money
spent for work purposes has
disappeared and the respon-
sibility for such reimburse-
ment shall be based upon the
parties' relative net earnings
on 100 percent of the day
care cost.
A major change requires the
adjustment of standard child
support in every case in
which the parent with fewer
over-nights has 20 percent
or more of the over-night.
Previously that parent had
to have at least of 40 percent
of the overnights to obtain
an adjustment. This part of
the statute shall not go into
effect until January 1, 2011.
This change will usually
benefit the parent who has
the fewer over-nights at the
expense of the parent with
more over-nights.

Where your money goes
The money you donate is used to used to fund important research and programs
that help moms have full-term pregnancies and babies begin healthy lives.
And it helps us provide information and support to families
whose baby was born too soon, or sick.
Here are some of the ways you've already helped:

When a baby is born too soon, even by just a few
weeks, the brain and other organs haven't had
time to fully develop. Our researchers are
working on ways to prevent prematurity so that
all babies get their important nine months.

Every year, more than 6.800
babies are born with an oral cleft. Our
researchers identified a gene
responsible for the condition and are
working on prevention,
Fewer babies are born with neural tube birth
defects like spina bifida as a result of March
of Dimes folic acid education and
fortification campaigns.
Surfactant and nitric oxide therapies now save the
lives of tens of thousands of babies suffering from
respiratory distress syndrome after they
were born too soon.

Premature birth and certain birth defects can
lead to blindness. Scientists are studying the
genetic causes of prematurity and developing
treatments to cure vision defects like retinitis

WOW!ES of Boca Raton; beautiful

girls, great food

By Donovan Ortega

WOW!ES is a Boca Raton
sports bar that warrants the
exclamation point in its
'Wowie is what I want
people to say when they
walk in the door and see
the beautiful wait staff and
eat our wonderful food"
said Sophia Macchiavel-
lo, owner of WOW!ES.
While this mission state-
ment might seem famil-
iar in many South Florida
establishments, this isn't
your ordinary sports bar.
Sophia purchased
WOW!ES with her hus-
band, Andres Machiavello,
in November and trans-
formed an ordinary water-
ing hole into an upscale
gastro pub without the high
prices. If seafood is what
you crave, order the house
specialty, Snapper A La
Naples. It comes sauteed in
a francais sauce with arti-
choke heart, asparagus and
roasted peppers. But if that
sounds too fancy, burgers

Yael Messer bartender

and wings are available as
well. What is most striking
about the menu is the di-
versity. Where else can you
have an order of "loaded"
potato skins- a barroom
staple- and New Zealand
Green Mussels sauteed in
white wine and garlic?
Along with the bartenders
and servers, the interior of
the bar is elegant yet ca-
sual, featuring wood floors,
solid wood bars, and brick
walls, which give it a fash-
ionable, yet casual ambi-
"I've been coming here
since they opened," said
Michael Farrell while sit-
ting at the bar. "It's a nice
high end establishment
with good food. That's
what sets them apart. It's
not the usual grease pit you
find everywhere else."
Yael Messer paces behind
the bar, polishing bottles
and creating specialty
cocktails for regulars. She's
been working at WOW!ES
for a year and a half.
"Sophia treats us like fam-

ily" said Messler. "I love
working here because
the atmosphere is very
laid back. You can have
a conversation. Strangers
can talk to strangers. It's a
great place to get to know
If this sounds like a step up
from the aforementioned
grease pits' but you're
looking to drink on the
cheap, there's no need to
worry. At WOW!ES, hap-
py hour is 12pm to 7pm
every day. Friday is ladies
night and women drink
free from 9pm until 12pm,
which includes top shelf
liquor. There is live enter-
tainment featured every
Saturday night.
"We also have all the UFC
and boxing events," said
Sophia. "We have 26 flat
screen televisions so any-
where you sit you'll have a
great seat."
WOW!ES is located 7036

Keeping your shutters and generators

secure during hurricane season

By Officer Kurt Brower
Boca Raton Police

summer during hurricane
season, Floridians watch
the tropics, stock up on
supplies, review emergen-
cy plans and hope they
don't have to shutter up
for the big one.
While attention is diver-
ted to the Caribbean, cri-
minals are targeting our
homes for the very items
that protect and comfort
us during and after the
storm; shutters and gen-
A quick check of a metal
recycling business revea-
led that selling aluminum
shutters may yield around
$.40 a pound or $2.40 for
a 57-inch panel. That's a
far cry from the almost
$27 a national home im-
provement store charges,
but it's not bad for a quick

Generators, on the other
hand, can be found on
Craigslist for $150 and
up. In the few minutes
it takes a criminal to load
20 panels and a generator
from the side of a house,
he can net almost $200 or
more. It is easy to see the
attraction for criminals.
So how can you avoid be-
coming a victim of this
type of crime?
First, make sure shutters
and generators are prop-
erly secured. Shutters
should be moved into the
garage or a locked storage
area when not in use.
Generators should never
be stored outside, and
when in use, chain or
cable lock them to an im-
movable object. You can
create an immovable ob-
ject by filling a five gallon
bucket with cement, plac-
ing an eye-hook in it, and
burying it in the ground.
Additionally, make sure


the chain or cable used is
heavy gauge and equip-
ped with a high security
padlock. If the generator
is stored in an outside
shed, place a heavy-duty
eye bolt into the founda-
tion and secure as previ-
ously mentioned.
Next, make sure to close
and lock garage doors.
Not only are shutters and
generators kept in the
garage, but a number of
other valuables including
cars, lawn equipment, bi-
cycles and tools are stored
there as well.
Finally, make sure to keep
a copy of your generator's
make, model, and serial
number so that if you be-
come a victim, you will
be able to provide the in-
vestigator with this infor-
mation. Keeping a photo-
graph of your generator
and engraving it with a
personal identification
number is also highly rec-
ommended, remembering

never to use your Social
Security number. These
measures will make your
generator less attractive to
criminals and help iden-
tify it should it be stolen.

Makin' a List: LeBron Keeps

Tabs on Haters

Ever since LeBron
announced that he
"was taking his tal-
ents down south",
he has been under
a lot of fire, literal-
ly and figuratively

1 cuU Ilciz u

speaking. Minutes
after "The Decision" you
could see former Cleve-
land Cavaliers fans bum
his jerseys to the ground,
and not even two days
later, Michael Jordan and
Magic Johnson added
even more fuel.
But, all
hope is
not lost.
let the
know that
he is lis-
and keep-
ing tabs
on these
"Don' t
think for
one min
that I
been taking mental notes
of everyone taking shots
at me this summer. And I
mean everyone!" he said
in his Twitter account (@
One of the most active
talkers in the whole LeB-
ron ordeal is none other
than Charles Barkley.
Barkley already has a bad
reputation with Miami
Heat fans as he called out
the Heat last season by
saying that Dwyane Wade
was Michael Jackson and
was playing with a bunch
of Tito Jacksons.

Barkley was no
doubt right about
this but there re-
ally isn't a reason
for him to call out
a team like that on
national television.

It is understandable
that he took a stab at for-
mer number 2 pick Mi-
chael Beasley. Barkley is
a bully. And now he's try-
ing to bully LeBron, and
to me at least, that will be
a fail waiting to happen.
The TNT Analyst said

in an interview on a ra-
dio show with 103.3 FM
in Dallas "I want him to
make sure that he puts
my name on that list, I
thought that his little one-
hour special was a punk
Barkley also said that the
Summer 2010 Welcome
Party for the Three Kings
was "a punk move" and
he is not one bit worried
about saying all this to
their faces. "He [LeB-
ron] knows where I'll be,
I don't run. I'm on TV
every week, I'm easy to

LeBron has still been un-
der a lot of fire in Ohio.
While he was shooting
hoops at an amusement
park in Sandusky, Ohio,
onlookers were yelling,
"I bet you miss!" and
"Just like Game 5," in
reference to the playoff
game against the Celtics
where he was accused
of quitting on his team-
Listen all you haters, the
doubters, and nay-sayers-
get ready
for one of
the most
of Miami
Heat bas-
ever. Not
only for
the fact
that we
have three
of the top
five best
players in
the game
right now,
but because everyone is
fueling their fire.
If having the big three
is not enough to win a
championship, all these
talks about them sure
will. LeBron said he
would put some things
in the locker room this
season in order to get
pumped up. Personally,
I would love to see them
write down all the quotes
of people hating on them
and just posting them all
over the locker room. But
that's just me.

The Miami Dolphins' pre-
season opener was a down-
pour, making what would
typically be a pretty sloppy
game anyway that much
The Dolphins' struggled
with drops early on and
failed to get much going, al-
though they forced a hand-
ful of turnovers from the
Buccaneers and eventually
found the endzone on a Lex
Hilliard run.
The teams also traded field
goals in the low-scoring af-
fair, giving Miami a 10-7
win and a 1-0 record in the
exhibition portion of the
Here are my observations
from the Dolphins' win
over the Buccaneers:
* There really isn't any way
to evaluate Chad Henne's
performance, as he had
numerous drops during his
time in the game and he
played in the worst weather
conditions of the night.
* It's hard to say what exact-
ly the motivations were be-
hind Tyler Thigpen play-
ing so much and Pat White
not at all (except to kneel at
the end of the game, which
was just mean). The Dol-
phins could be showcasing
Thigpen for a trade, which
would open up the door
for White to stick around.
Or, the team could just be
committed to Thigpen as
the No. 2 quarterback, and
conversely have given up
on White's development.
We won't know for a few
* Ronnie Brown looked
good coming off his foot
injury and was especially
powerful and shifty in the
poor field conditions. If he
stays healthy, he's going to
be very productive in this
* Another preseason is here,

By Chris J. Nelson
which means
it's time for
Dolphins fans
everywhere to
overrate Lex
Hilliard. While
he did find the
end zone, he
wasn't that im-
pressive on the
ground (eight
carries for 19
yards) and sim-
ply isn't any-
thing special.
* With Brandon
Marshall drop-
ping his only
two targets of
the night in his
No. 19 jersey,
I could have
sworn I was looking at Ted
Ginn, Jr. There's not need
to panic just yet, as the rain
was tough and Marshall is a
proven receiver.
* We saw a few signs of life
from disappointing third-
round pick Patrick Turner,
who caught two passes and
led the team with 44 yards.
Turner could use a con-
fidence boost, and a few
more showings like this
should solidify his spot on
the roster.
* Marion Moore and Ju-
lius Pruitt each had a
few good grabs, although
Moore also had a bad drop,
which is somethingun-
drafted rookies can't afford.
Roberto Wallace failed to
make much of an impact
with one reception. I sim-
ply can't see any of these
guys forcing Turner off the
roster at this point given the
team's investment in him.
* The Dolphins' tight ends
were practically nonexis-
tent in the passing game
tonight, which is something
we saw a lot of in 2009. We
did see David Martin im-
mediately inserted into the
first-team offense in two-

tight end sets, which says
a lot about what the team
thinks of its three young
tight ends.
* Jake Long was solid in
the weather conditions and
was a visible leader in the
huddle. Backup Andrew
Gardner had a much rough-
er time with a penalty and
some missed blocks on the
right side, so he could be
hurting himself.
* I saw a bit about what
Omar Kelly has said about
Richie Incognito's inability
to pull as guard, but he's
still better than Donald
Thomas. It's quite tell-
ing that Thomas didn't get
most of his work until late
and with the third team.
Perhaps my prediction that
he doesn't get cut might
have some legs. I think a lot
of it depends on the health
of Nate Garner.
* Joe Berger got the start
at center with Jake Grove
a little banged up, although
Grove did come in with the
second team. Grove also
had a bad snap that led to a
turnover, but I still don't see
Berger winning the starting

mittent heavy rains have
cut into practice time for
the Florida Atlantic Uni-
versity Fighting Owls
football team since it
began pre-season train-

ing in preparation for the
2010 season which be-
gins Sept. 2 against the
University of Alabama-
The defensive squad
won the first scrimmage
34-24, on Aug. 13. De-
spite the score, though,
there were big plays on

offense, big stops on de-
fense and a fire to win on
both sides of the ball.
"The defense was obvi-
ously dominant except for
the few drives," said Head
Coach Howard Schnel-
lenberger. "We made a lot
of errors on offense with
snap exchanges, but that
will happen with third and
fourth string centers. I'm
disappointed but not ter-
ribly concerned. We will
get better as a team as time
goes on."
FAU took to the practice
fields for the first time
Aug. 7. It was also the
first practice for Richard
Lage, FAU's new defen-
sive tackle coach.
"It was a spirited day that
we are all thankful for,"
said Schnellenberger af-

a long way to go, but we
will work to close the gap
on our rivals."
Special teams began that
day with Tavious Polo
and Avery Holley recei-
ving punts. Despite a rain
storm that ended practice
early, the team was able
to work on individual
drills as well as installs,
7-on-7 and stationary
"I would say it was an
average first day," said
Jeff Van Camp, FAU's
senior quarterback. "Every-
one was rusty. We will be
fine tomorrow once the
rust is off. The pace was
good and that is some-
thing the coaches have
talked about. That will
carry over into games."
The next day, FAU had
to move its afternoon
practice to the evening
following a heavy rain-
storm. But, the move
provided an opportunity
to work under the lights
and on a turf field.
FAU completed the pre-
practice meetings, broke
for dinner and then made
use of the field at the
track complex for its eve-
ning workout.

to get today's workout

we put together, we got

little bit better and they
are working hard to get
