Jefferson Davis had big plans for when the Confeder-
acy sent the Yankees running. In particular, he laid out
plans to conquer Mexico, Cuba and Brazil. The South
had seen expansion southward as a way to compensate
for non-slave expansion to the west. During the war it-
self, the Confederacy sent agents to destabilize Mexico
by fomenting revolution, and after the war, thousandS
of die-hards fled to Brazil, which still had slavery.

BOCA RATON- In a pros-
pective study published in
the European Journal of Nu-
clear Medicine and Molecu-
lar Imaging, researchers at
Boca Raton Regional Hos-
pital showed that Positron
Emission Mammography
(PEM) and breast MRIhad
comparably high ability to
detect cancerous lesions.
The prospective study en-
rolled 182 women with
recent biopsy-proven pri-
mary breast cancer and
also found that PEM was
not impacted by meno-
pausal status, breast den-
sity or hormone replace-
ment therapy making PEM
a valuable alternative.
PEM scanners are high-re-
solution breast PET sys-
tems that show the location
as well as the metabolic
phase of a lesion. The met-
abolic view assists phy-
sicians to make the opti-

mal cancer care decision
by providing an unpre-
cedented ability to distin-
guish between benign and
malignant lessons, what
researchers term "specifi-
PEM is different than X-
ray mammography in that
it is currently not used as
a screening modality, but
rather to confirm extent of
disease in a patient already
diagnosed with a primary
breast cancer.
"We were very pleased to
find that PEM and MRI
had comparable ability to
detect cancerous lesions
regardless of type or seve-
rity of the tumor," said
Kathy Schilling, MD, Boca
Raton Regional Hospital
radiologist and lead author
on the study. "In addition,
the data showed that PEM
is a fantastic alternative for
women with dense breasts

or where timing of an MRI
due to menstrual cycle is
challenging. The next step
is to understand how PEM
and MRI compare when
differentiating between be-
nign and malignant suspi-
cious lesions."
Results from a separate
NIH-sponsored clini-
cal study [NIH Grant
5R44CA103102J, recently
presented at the 2010 So-
ciety of Nuclear Medicine
Annual Meeting, compa-
ring PEM and breast MRI
help answer Dr. Schil-
ling's question. The multi-
site study of hundreds of
women with newly diag-
nosed breast cancer shows
that PEM demonstrated a
6 percent improvement in
specificity, ability to dif-
ferentiate between malig-

NOflORal Fire Prevention

Week safety lesson
BOCA RATON Boca Raton Firefighters recently wel-
comed special visitors at Fire Station # 1 at 1151 North
Federal Highway.
The visit was in preparation for National Fire Prevention
Week Oct. 3-9. Students from MECE Pre School and
Kindergarten classes stopped by the station to leam about
fire safety. The 5-year-old students teamed to "Stop,
Drop and Roll", "Know Two Ways Out" and "Stay Low
and Go".
Teachers, parents and students toured the fire station and
were given a close-up look at the fire apparatus and medi-
cal unit.
The highlight ofthe visit was when Firefighter/Paramedic
Chris Neville showed the students that a firefighter looks
different when they are fully dressed to fight a fire. "Al-
though we look different, firefighters are your friends,"
he said.

Ohio, Boca Raton authori-
ties have located a suspect
in connection with the
Sept. 19 knifepoint rob-
bery of a clerk at Sally's
Beauty Supply, 1950 NE

During the initial investi-
gation, Boca Raton Police
Detective Hanley circu-
lated a photograph of the
suspect, taken from sur-
veillance video. A member
of the Boca Raton Police
Tactical Team saw the
photograph and notified
Detective Hanley that the
suspect's name was Toby
Berry, 45, with no listed

The police officer had
spoken to Berry Sept. 16
during a routine street en-
counter in the parking lot
of the Fifth Avenue Shops.
During that encounter,
Berry had a gold and silver
medium size folding pock-
etknife in his possession,
and said he was staying
with a friend at Boca Man-
or Apartments on North
Federal Highway.
Berry was arrested Sept.
27 in Toledo. Boca's Pub-
lic Information Officer
Sandra Boonenberg said
Detective Hanley filed for
a warrant for Berry for the
charge of robbery with a

deadly weapon. She said
the investigation revealed
that Berry had previously
lived in Toledo, Ohio and
still has family there. De-
tectives notified officials
in Ohio that Berry might
be heading to their juris-
diction. Berry was arrested
in Toledo without incident.
Boonenberg said Boca Ra-
ton detectives went to an
apartment at Boca Manor
and spoke with the resi-
dent, who said Berry had
been staying with her for
the past week. The resi-
dent identified Berry as the
person in the surveillance
video at the beauty store.

Drummond celebrated her
80th birthday Sept. 30.
And it was a heck of a birth-
day. Not only did hundreds
of people turn out to honor
the woman most respon-
sible for organizing and
leading the drive to create
a hospital in Boca back in
the 1960s, but local philan-

her donation.
Officials from the Boca

Foundation said the dona-
tion will name the Christine

The gift will be utilized to
construct a new, state-of-

services, creating an at-
tractive and comfortable
setting with an emphasis
on clinical excellence, ef-
ficiency and privacy, said
Jan Savarick, president of
the Boca Raton Regional

"We are so appreciative
of Christine's generosity,"
said Savarick. "This lead

It was with no small
amount of regret and sym-
pathy that we said good-
bye last week to former
Palm Beach County Sher-
iff Ed Bieluch.
At age 68 young by most
standards the ex-lawman
succumbed to cancer, cer-
tainly not an ending befit-
ting a man who left the top
law enforcement spot in
the county to become an
Anglican priest.
I didn't see Sheriff Bieluch
much, but I do remember
an afternoon some time
ago when he and his fel-
low officers visited Boca
As I recall, it was a hab-
it of the sheriff to visit
neighborhoods all over the
county. When he was in

Boca, people came out to
greet him. We all had to
look up. Ed was a big, big,
man, tall and imposing,
typical of the traditional
man with a mission to en-
force the law.
I remember that Ed and his
officers passed out candy
bars to the kids not just
any candy, but specially
wrapped ones with the
Palm Beach County Sher-
iff logo and information on
the wrapping.
As I recall, I left mine in
the car, and went back lat-
er to find a melted choco-
late puddle.
Sheriff Ed yielded his
seat to another wise and
hardworking lawman, Ric
Bradshaw. Both are fine
examples of people who

have the safety of resi-
dents in mind.
We'll miss you, Ed, and
we offer condolences to
his family.

Changes at City Hall

I was a little shocked the
other day when I visited
Boca Raton City Hall.
Gone are the metal detec-
tor and the guards who
used to issue passes to
and discovered that a lack
of money in the budget
forced the city to get rid of
its security detail at City
I remember when the of-
ficers first arrived. It was
some time after both 9/11

and the anthrax scare in
Boca Raton back in 2001.
Because of the dual threat
locally, Boca buttoned
down its municipal gov-
ernment. It shut down the
after-hours tax drop and
the library book return.
Everyone who came to
City Hall had to get a pass.
They used to be color-cod-
ed by floor.
Now, visitors can say hel-
lo to a receptionist. No
badges. No metal detec-
tor. Hopefully, there will
be someone to maintain
crowd control at meetings
that become crowded.
As I said in last week's col-
umn, these are some of the
things that are passing into
history because of budget

lies, in villages, in cities;
they also meet neighbors,
school mates, play mates,
co-workers, and a multi-
tude of those providing
the services one needs and
seeks, available in most
People cannot avoid peo-

opt for total distance from
Others. Human creatures,
as social bemgs, are fully
interdependent in life. And
because each individual
is unique, everyone has
a contribution to make,
and everybody can benefit
from the opinions of oth-
ers, the activities of others,
even the mere presence
of other fellow humans at
certain life moments!
Nevertheless, the very fact
that persons are different,
also brings its problems in
human interaction. Some
people are bossy, some in-

sist on their way in every-
thmg; there are hars, dis-

honest people, mdividuals
on whom one cannot de-
pend, even for the simplest
promises they may make.
This leaves you with a
choice: you either cling to
some people or you simply
avoid them. Avoid unnec-
essary confrontations and
futile disputes; go after
more receptive people -
those with whom a healthy
interaction is possible and
The experience of any
person with others is usu-
ally very similar when it
occurs: some people are
worth knowing more inti-
mately, and the effort can
be made to effect that real-
ity. Some can be the object
of our loving care and as-
sistance without any fear
of them taking undue ad-
vantage of us. A few will
become peers on projects
of common interest. No
doubt, there will be those
who become closer than a
But there are also persons
to be avoided by all means:
individuals whose values
can become an embarrass-
ment to us, persons whose

daily practice and reputa-

own if we became too
close to them. Not to men-
tion the brutish, the nega-
tive spirits, and the self-
seeking men and women
whose only agenda item is
their own self!
Indeed, any day or any
year, the people you meet
on earth will appear in dif-
ferent sizes and shapes,
with open or hidden agen-
das, with good or evil in-
tentions, eager to build you
up, or drive you into non-
productivity, if not total
failure. Jealousy, disloy-
alty, and other evil char-
acteristics may dominate
their outlook and practice!
Your best choice is to clmg
to persons who will ensure
mutual benefits (yours and
theirs) in any association
you establish with them.
T.S. Eliot once declared
that there are people with
whom one speaks with
difficulty, as there also
are those with whom one
speaks in vain. I would
still add those with whom
one speaks with difficulty
at first, but also in vain, af-
ter all prior efforts. Avoid
all these if you can!

When we first sat down
months ago to come up
with a plan for the Boca
Raton Tribune, we asked
ourselves: what does the
community want to read

Lots of ideas came out
of that session. Politics,
meetings, the social scene,
achievements, awards, city
government and the like.

But a subject everyone
agreed on was student
So the Tribune is doing its
best to cover Boca's high
schools sports teams. We
are using student items
to cover games. In fact '
in what is probably a first
for a community paper
this week's edition offers
two stories about the Boca
High-Olympic Heights
football game one story
from the Boca High point
of view, the other from
the Heights.
It may seem like a duplica-
tion, but each school has a
story to tell. Each school
has its own assessment of
the team. And each school
has its own heroes to hon-
or. Both deserve notice.

Our desire to cover schools
isn't just restricted to
sports. We are looking
for news from all areas of
Boca's schools. We want
to know what the clubs are
doing, what the classes are
studying and which stu-
dents are thinking outside
of the box with new and
different ideas.

Just think. The holidays
are coming up, and that's
a perfect time to showcase
schools. Undoubtedly, stu-
dents will be making proj-
ects for Halloween, help-
ing out in the community
in advance of Thanksgiv-
ing and collecting gifts and
cash for needy kids and
families for Hanukkah and
Christmas time.

Actually, one seasonal e-
vent has already been held.
The Boca Raton Historical
Society held its Oktober-
fest at the Count de Ho-
emle Pavilion (the former

FEC railroad station) on
South Dixie Highway.

There was plenty of Ger-
man food and drink to go
around. Historical Society
members made big, fancy
cakes and pastry for a bake
sale and there was music
by the Sheffield Brothers

Yes, that was the Tribune's
own entertainment guru,
Skip Sheffield, performing
with his brothers Richard
and John, and keyboardist
Mark Winans, providing
music not all of which
was German. But they
did offer a nice version of
"Roll out the Barrel" that
pleased the crowd.

The Oktoberfest is actually
a prelude to the Historical
Society's biggest fkmd-
raiser of the year, the Boca
Bacchanal scheduled for
early next year.

BOCA RATON -What the
Federation of Boca Raton
Homeowners Associations
said would be a debate Oct.
5 between congressional
candidates Ron Klein and
Allen West tumed out to
be a one-man show.
West had the floor all to
himself, and used it to
castigate Democratic in-
cumbent Klem for what he
called negative advertising
that was annoying his fa-
mily. He also said Klem's
policies are "destructive"
to the nation.
Klein, congressman from
the 22nd District since
2006, and West, an Army
colonel, faced each other
in 2008, with Klein com-
ing out the victor. The
challenge will replay itself
on Nov. 2.
As to Klein's presence at
the debate, Melissa Silver-
man from his campaign
office said the congress-
man had told the Federa-
tion a long time ago that he
would be unable to attend.
But Federation President
Gene Folden said he had

talked to Klein's campaign
manager and received no
specific word about the
incumbent's attendance. "I
asked him to send some-
one else if the congress-
man could not come," said
Golden. No one from the
Klein camp came.
Golden said he was "not
surprised" the incumbent
didn't show because Klein
left early from a Federa-
tion-sponsored debate with
West in 2008.
As to Klem's so-called
negative ads, the Repubh-
can challenger said he was
particularly miffed about a
mailing "sent on the eve of
Yom Kippur" that includ-
ed West's Social Security
number and his wife's em-
ployee ID. "He's not talking
about issues, he's trying to
destroy me."
Asked why he doesn't re-
spond to Klein's barbs,
West said, "That's not what
it's all about. I want to get
the message out. When
people can't stand on is-
sues, they smear. I have
more honor in my little toe
than Ron Klein has in a
lifetime. The campaign is
not anot ths, met, ,tuff "

He said that when Klein
took office in 2007, un-
employment was at about
4 percent. It has risen to
nearly 10 percent national-
ly and about 13 percent in
South Florida. "Ron Klein
sits on the House Finance
Committee under the tute-
lage of Bamey Frank."
The GOP hopeful said "we
need people in Washington
who will stand up for fiscal
,, .
stability. He said the cur-
rent administration seems
to be trying to "demon-
ize those who get out and
West added that the small
business community will
not hire more workers "un-
til the economy is stable
and predictable "
Taking Democrats to task
for financial programs he
said they have not worked,
West noted: "The greatest
stimulus package is put-
ting dollars back in your
pockets. That's how to
stimulate wealth."
Currently, he said, the ratio
of pay in the public sector
compared to the private
sector is 2 to 1. He said the
financial situation has cre-
ated a boom in Washington
where "you constantly see
construction cranes. One
of the [new buildings] is
for the IRS and its new
16,000 IRS agents."
President Obama's health
care program, he said, has
created 166 new govem-
ment agencies and 11 new

a marathon is a tough e-
nough task.
But three people associa-ted
with a Boca Raton-based
addiction treatment center,
Caron Renaissance, left
Sept. 30 for Egypt to take
part in a 150-mile ultra
marathon in Africa's Saha-
ra Desert. During the race '
they will be carrying all
their provisions and camp
items on their backs.
On Sept. 30, the last day of
National Addiction Reco-
very Month, Michael Her-
bert of Delray Beach and
Afshin Kamama of Lake
Worth, joined 57-year-old
grandmother, Linda Quirk,
in her Run7on7 mission to
raise scholarship dollars
for Caron Renaissance.
Hebert is a member of Ca-
ron Renaissance's clinical
team. Kamama, a branch
manager for PNC Bank, is
amemberof CaronRenais-
sance's board of directors.
Both men have volunteered
to support Quirk, who is a
fellow board member and
parent of a Caron Renais-
sance alumnus.
Caron is a nonprofit addic-
tion treatment center that
helps those affected by al-
cohol and drugs and their
families begin a new life.
Linda's stepdaughter, Ka-
therine, began her joumey
from methamphetamine ad-
diction to recovery at Caron
Renaissance in Florida, so-
. .
meeting Lmda said she is
forever grateful for.
Herbert and Kamama are
two of seven volunteers
who have joined to run
one of the four deserts
with Linda. The volun-
teers were tasked to raise

a minimum of $5,000 for
the scholarship fund and
to train extremely hard to
prepare for the joumey
ahead. Some have never
run a half-marathon, let
alone 150-miles.
Those who want to track
the runners can visit www.
run7on7.com for additio-
nal background as well as
facts about this race.
The Sahara Desert is con-
sidered one of the world's
most amazing places. It's the
largest hot desert, stretching
more than 5,000 kilome-
ters across 13 countries.
The course for the Sahara
Race 2010 passes through
the Valley of the Whales
(locally known as Wadi
El-Hitan). It is a UNESCO
world heritage site which
means that it is protected
and not many people are
permitted the opportunity
to visit. Runners will li-
terally be passing whale
fossils and other sea life
remains from more than
8,000 years ago.
The race is divided into six
sections. There are check-
points approximately ev-
ery 10 kilometers (six mi-
les) where volunteers and
a medical doctor are sta-
tioned to give water. Each
checkpoint also has a tent
providing shade. Course
temperatures can reach as
high as 500C (1220F) with
lows of 100C (500F) at
The terrain is largely sand
- a mixture of soft sand and
hard-packed sand as well
as many sand dunes.
Runners are required to
bring a hydration system
that is capable of carry-
ing at least 2.5 liters of


water. The standard water
allocation is 1.5 liters at
each checkpoint along the
course and 4.5 liters at the
final checkpoint of each
stage (which is at camp),
but it is possible that run-
ners will be required to
leave a checkpoint with up
to 2.5 liters of water if the
temperature is particularly

This is the second in a se-
ries considering the issue of
"God." We discussed previ-
ously that God was a prima-
ry, not a secondary issue. In
essence, life cannot be lived
in a state of suspended ani-
mation. When a crisis comes
in one's life, he either prays
to God or he does not. He
cannot remain suspended
between two opposite opi-
nions. Either there is a God
or there is not. The necessity
to act requires that a stand
be taken.
We were also very care-
ful to point out the fact
that attempting to study an
incorporeal God by cor-
poreal means was like try-
ing to measure radioactiv-
ity with your pencil or pick
up a phone signal with a
fork... one doesn't measure
the other. L.S. Keyser once
wrote: "Let us remember this
fact: Human reason cannot
prove the Christian faith to
be true. It can only show it
to be more reasonable than
unbelief." (A System of
Christian Evidence, pg. 31).
That bemg said, Be very
clear we are not saying there
is no evidence for God or
faith! Harvey Everest said
it well: "We cannot believe
unless belief is more ratio-
nal than unbelief. We cannot
believe at will, arbitrarily
or against reason. Reason,
meaning thereby the whole
mental power for the ascer-
tainment of truth, must be

our guide. No one insists
upon this more eamestly
than the defender of Christi-
anity. Reason and faith are
not antagonistic, but rather
coadjutors. No faith is wor-
thy unless it is justified by
the severest use of reason."
(The Divine Demonstration,
While I have no qualms a-
bout providing evidence for
my faith, I am often amazed
at how quickly and mind-
lessly we accept statements
"as fact" when given from
sition. To be fair, we need
to require the position of
faith and non-faith to ac-
cept equal responsibility to
produce evidence. You see,
evidence does not neces-
sarily prove. It constitutes
proof only when the mind is
open and honestly consid-
ers the evidence. Two boys
had a contest to see who
could scare the most rats out
from under the bam. The
first boy placed his friend
on the opposite side of the
barn, took a long pole and
rattled it loudly beneath the
barns. Rats scattered in ev-
ery direction. The first boy
called to his friend, "Did
you see any rats?" "No,"
he responded. How was
that possible? The boy had
seen rats running from eve-
ry direction visible to any-
one who would look. The
boy ran around to see his
friend with his eyes tightly

closed. He had seen no rats,
not because there were no
rats to see, but because he
didn't want to see them.
Sometimes the evidence for
God and faith is ineffec-
tive, not because there is no
evidence, but because we
are not willing to evaluate
it with an open mind or we
don't like the philosophical
implications if they are true.

Over the next few weeks
we will look at the scope
of evidences which pertain
to reality by reason of its

distinguish between an hy-

cient supporting evidence),
and a fact or law (a theory
which has been demonstrat-

Question: I have read ar-
tcles in your newspaper
and others, over the last
few years regarding a con-
troversy over sealing fles
in divorce cases to prevent
the publication of marital
settlement agreements and
other Anancial information
in public court records.
My wife and I are doing a
good job in cooperatively
working toward a fair set-
tlement in our case that in-
volves the division and dis-
dollars of assets. We have
houses in different states
and countries and non-re-
tirement and retirement as-
sets in the stock market.
Most of the assets were ac-
quired during the marriage
as we developed a well-
known nationwide business
in which we both worked
The business sold for cash,

our present liquidity. We
recently moved into South
Florida where we are flyin g
below the radar Anancially
and would like to stay that
way to avoid constant so-
licitation for one Hong or
Our lawyers tell us that
Florida law makes it un-
lawful for a judge to grant
an order sealing court fles
without fling a separate
case to do so, andam11top
newspapers. Is there any
way around this problem?

Answer: Recently it has

come to the attention of the
Florida Supreme Court that
existing rules goveming the
sealing of records by judges
throughout Florida have
been largely ignored in cer-
tain counties in South Flo-
rida. Many, but not all such
incidents, involved financial
records in divorce cases.
The court asked the Florida
Bar, through its Board of
Govemors and committee
system, to review the exist-
ing rules and recommend
changes. That process is
well underway. The court
sent a clear message to trial
Judges throughout Flonda
to apply strictly the current
Current rules appear to re-
quire notice to be given to
newspapers in the event
that a trial court has sealed
a file, or plans to seal a file,
and allow the newspapers
the opportunity to go to a
court of competent juris-
diction, a circuit court, to
unseal the files, or sto the
process. The changes will
make it harder to seal files
in Flonda.
However, before a litigant
has to be conceded about
the sealmg of a court re-
cord, the record you want
to remain private has to
become part of a court file.
Florida Circuit Court judges
seem to have no problem in
cooperating with attomeys
in allowing agreements to
keep certain financial infor-
mation out of court files, to

maintain the confidentiality
of client records.
Marital settlement agree-
ments often refer to "side
letter agreements" which
can hide the core financial
agreements between the
two of you.
Financial affidavits are re-
quired to be exchanged and
filed in all Florida divorce
cases, except the simplest
cases where no financial re-
lief is being sought. Gene-
rally, at final hearings, in
settled cases, the marital
settlement agreement end-
ing the case is filed m the
court records.
When asked, however,
many judges are willing
to waive the f ilmg of these
documents, in order to al-
low parties to maintain
financial secrecy by agree-
ment of the attomeys for
the parties to maintain the-
se financial documents in
their office files, and not the
court files.
In democratic and en so-
ciety that cherishes freedom
of the press, there is public
purpose for open court files.
There seems to be no par-
ticular public purpose to re-
quire civil litigants to open
up their financial records to
the general public merely to
get divorced.
Handled in the right way,
it will not be necessary for
you to seek the sealmg of
your court records, as the
important documents will
not be there.

Dear Dr Man, My tennis
partner told me got some-
thing called Tickle Lipo.
Did I misunderstand her?
Sounds strange. Hat is
it? All I know is that she
looks great.

Answer: You heard cor-
rectly. Named for its slight
"tickling" sensation, Tick-
le Lipo uses a specially
designed cannula that pro-
duces a unique vibration
referred to as nationall
motion." This is what
produces the sensation
many patients report as a
"tickling" sensation.
Tickle Lipo differs from
other methods of tumes-
cent liposuction because
the cannula is activated
by air pressure, causing a
whirhng movement, in-
frasound and gentle vi-
brations referred to as
nationaln" motion. This
patented technique pro-
vides faster infiltration
of the tumescent solution

- 25 percent faster than
other liposuction technol-
ogy, shortening the length
of the procedure.
A selection of specialized
cannulas used in the Tickle
Lipo technique allows the
physician to better ma-
neuver through fibrous or
harder to reach areas of
fat, enabling precise body
contouring. The ease of
maneuvering of the special
cannula allows for high
definition body sculpting.
It is more effective and
safer, removing deeper fat,
as well as superficial fat ly-
ing just under the skin with

The benefits of Tickle Lipo
are as follows:

* Local anesthesia Pa-
tients can be awake be-
cause general anesthesia is
not needed.
* No heat damage less
bruising. Unlike other li-
posuction techniques that

utilize the heat of laser
or ultrasound energy, the
surgical cannula used in
Tickle Lipo stays cool,
eliminating the risk of heat
injury to tissue.
* More precise/better re-
sults Because of its ease
of movement, Tickle Lipo
is more precise. It can be
used to safely and more
effectively remove deeper
fat pockets, as well as su-
perficial fat, providing
"high-definition" sculpt-
* Cuts down on surgical
time. Faster results be-
cause there is less bruising
and swelling, patients see
results almost immedi-
* Less downtime patients
recover faster.
* Fat harvesting The phy-
sician can also harvest the
patient's own fat, which
is removed dunng hpo-
suction, for use as a long
lasting natural facial filler,
instead of using synthetic

It's October and that means

to be wearing it, walking it
and rocking it for the next

In the four years I've been
covering philanthropy in

unimagined scale. This

Robin, Elizabeth Welprin,
Amy Seidman and Kathy
Fleishman are celebrat-
ing their third annual ben-
efit concert at Mizner Park
with some of the top names
in the music business.
I remember my first Boca
Raton Regional Hospi-
tal's "Go Pink" Luncheon
- 800 women crowded
into the ballroom at Boca
West wearing every shade
of pink imaginable. I was
wearing what has become
an annual tradition SAKS
Fifth Avenue's Key to the
Cure fundraising T-shirt.
The T-shirt is tradition-
ally pink except the year
superstar Karl Lagerfeld
designed it in blue and red
- obviously no one asked
him why it wasn't pink!
This year we can rest easy.
Donna Karan has designed
a feminine pink rose de-
sign. The T-shirts are avail-
able for $35 from SAKS at
Town Center

way. My fellow Brit Simon

In my last column, I dis-
cussed specific character
traits and behavior patterns
that Ihave found to be vital
for success in sales. Here's
a test that you can use to
evaluate your own success
or that of your current or
prospective sales people.
However, other factors do
enter into the equation,
such as a person's passion
for sales and their ability to
get along with people.
This is a brief rundown of
some of the characteristics
to look for:
Empathy: Putting yourself
in the other person's shoes.
EgoDrive: Success driven
and the ability to bounce
back from failure.
Appearance: Dress for su-
Assertiveness: Enterpri-
sing, a go getter
Integrity: Being ethical
and telling it like it is!
Creativity Finding a new
way or better way to do the
Emotional Maturity: Ne-
ver taking it personally.

So let's evaluate your po-
This exercise was devised

to identify the qualifica-
tions of candidates for
sales positions. How do
you rate against others in
necessary sellmg charac-
teristics? By rating your-
self honestly on each of
the criteria, you will gain
an awareness of how you
compare with success-
ful practicing salespeople.
In short, you will know
whether a position in sales
is right for you.
To the right of each char-
acteristic place a number
which you feel best re-
flects the degree to which
you possess each of these
characteristics. Use the
following scale:
5- possess to an extreme
4- possess to own satisfac-
3- possess to some extent
2-possess an insufficient
1- don't possess at all

1. Empathy (x5)=
2. Ego Drive (x4) = _
3. Appearance (xl) = -
4. Assertiveness (x4) = _
5. Integrity (x3)=
6. Creativity (x2) =
7. Emotional Maturity (xl)

To determine your score:
(1) Multiply your rating
for each characteristic by
the weighing factor along-
side it in parentheses;
(2) Add the resulting pro-
ducts to obtain your total
Score. Apply the follow-
ing ratings to your score;
90 100 = excellent sales
80 90 = good sales poten-
tial; some improvement
70 80 = satisfactory po-
tential; need improvement
through practice
Under 70 = does not show
adequate potential; needs
considerate amount of
work to master the sellmg
So there you have it! If
you rate 70 and over you
have the potential of being
successful in the selling

The Boca Raton Tribune is

ence some economic fluc-
tuation as it adapts. Much
like plants, which grow
stronger after pruning, our
economy will emerge from
this downturn more pow-
erful than ever. The econo-
my may seem bare at pres-
ent, and without bloom it
looks ugly, but soon we
will bear witness to yet
another American heyday
- a golden age to rival all
others. As George Fried-
man asserts in his recent
book, The Next 100 Years:
"The U.S. is a young and
barbaric country," and she
is still in the process of
maturation; balance and
stability will come only
with time.
Though it may not seem
like it, the U.S is on

the brink of yet another
boom of productivity and
growth. The former eco-
nomic boom, which took
place in the final decade of
the last century, occurred
largely due to the public
release of military tech-
nology, such as the inter-
net, which revolutionized
business management and
boosted both productivity
and revenues to unprec-
edented levels. Moreover,
the end of the Cold War
saved hundreds of billions
of dollars, allowing the
country to spend less as it
made more. The resulting
economic surge produced
an ideal situation in the
U.S. for some time. Unfor-
tunately, no measures were
taken to ensure that this

growth was maintained,
and in the last year of the
Clinton administration the
country went into a rapid
decline, with economic
growth falling from almost
7% to around 1%. This sit-
uation was aggravated by
the terrorist attacks of Sep-
tember 11, which exposed
the deep hole in homeland
security that had been
caused by budget cuts in
intelligence. To make mat-
ters worse, government
agencies were downsized
to compensate for the cost
of wars, while other wars
became necessary due to a
lack of government intelli-
gence! These are the costs
of immaturity.
While these issues must
be taken seriously, they

do not have to alter the
bigger picture: the U.S. is
still the largest exporter in
the world, and may even
hope to double its exports
within five years. More-
over, the U.S. has the larg-
est expanse of arable land
in the world (China's, for
example, constitutes only
9% of it), and it possesses
the technological and de-
fensive means to dominate
the oceans entirely. Its
defense budget is greater
than that of all of the oth-
er countries in the world
put together, and its GDI
is larger than Britain and
Germany combined; all of
world's trade routes could
be under U.S. control. We
should be aware, however,
that this potential hege-

mony will be very difficult
to maintain throughout the
upcoming century. One
of the challenges we will
face, of course, is the de-
clining population. We all
know that the upkeep of
a stable society is passed
down through generations;
the social security of one
generation depends upon
the contributions of an-
other. As population de-
creases, this contribution
decreases, causing major
economical instability;
therefore within another
decade or so we will begin
to encourage immigration
- a process for which we
will need to develop an ag-
gressive and selective im-
migration policy. Germa-

ny, for example, is now offering awards to companies that attract qualified immigrants.
Technological and educational leadership are other challenges that lie ahead. If our
schools are increasingly subjected to the tight-fisted tyranny of teachers' unions, tomor-
row's Americans will not be able to respond to the technological challenges of a chang-
ing world. Without these tools, the U.S. will be condemned to failure.
In the same vein, it would be extremely beneficial for the U.S. to welcome the wisdom

Friday night happened to
be one of the most beauti-
ful nights of the year, but it
would play out to the dis-
advantage of the Boca Ra-
ton Bobcats. Boca would

for a touchdown, but the

Lions of Olympic Heights
marched down the field to
tie the game on an 80 yard
drive without a single pass
thrown. This, it turned out,
would be a precursor to the
rest of the night. The score
at the end of the first was
tied at 7. After an impres-
sive drive to start the sec-
ond quarter, the Bobcats


fumbled the ball over. The
Lions then fumbled on
that drive, giving it back.
The Bobcats lined up for a
field goal to take the lead,
but it was blocked, spar-
ring an emotional drive for
Heights. During the next
play the Bobcats had a 56
yard rush for a touchdown
to take a 14-7 lead. During
the rest of the second, the
Lions showed their size as
they pushed Boca around,
going into the half for a
lead of 14-7. The Bob-
cats came out fired up on
defense, giving up only 4
yards to the Lions. After a
controversial muffed kick
retum that should have
been a Lion's touchdown,
the Bobcats tried to capi-
talize on their luck only to
drop three straight passes.
The next Heights drive,
the wishbone, just kept
the beating up throughout
the third quarter, and go-
ing into the fourth the lead
had risen to 20-7. With a
bomb to the left to start
the quarter, the Bobcats
brought the game to 20-
14 with new emotion. The
Lions would then go on to
run some the clock out and
punched a late touchdown
and a 2-pt conversion to
build their lead to 28-14.
Boca would score late,
bringing the score to 28-21
with 21 seconds to go, but
it wasn't enough.

Both teams coming in
to Friday's matchup had
the driving urge to win:
last week resulted in mu-
tual losses for Olympic
Heights and Boca High,
and both against district
rivals. Putting last week
behind them, however, the
two teams approached this
game with zeal: all week at
Olympic Heights the focus
has been on the rival Bob-
The game started out with
a kick retum touchdown
by the Bobcats' Ced Bry-
ant. This is the second time
this season that a game has
begun with a retum by the
opponent. Just like the first
time, however, the Lions
did not let it determine
the end result of the game.
After the retum, the Lions
went on a 13-play drive
that ended with a 5-yard
touchdown carry by Tavon
Jenkins. This tumed out
to be just a taste of what
would follow.
The Lions were able to
run their way to victory.
Picking up just over 350
yards in rushing, Tavon
Jenkins and David Tanis
sparked tonight's win. Ta-
von ran for 148 yards on
12 rushes and scored two
touchdowns, one being
the game decider. David
took the team record to a
new high: 155 yards on 21
carries, with one run re-
sulting in a 60-yard touch-
down. Despite battling an
early leg injury and pain

throughout the night, Da-
vid fought through adver-
sity and led the team effort.
The defense as a whole
had their own way all
night: the Bobcats only
had 45 rushing yards as
an entire team. Zach Slaf-
sky was able to recover a
fumble, and junior defen-
sive back Damani Wallace
had the game of his life.
He recovered two fumbles
and had one key deflection
after jumping a route. Wal-
lace sums up how he felt
in one word: "Amazing."
Speed to the ball, pres-
sure on the quarterback,
and an obvious win on the
defensive line allowed the
Lion's defense to dominate
the "explosive" Boca High
Late in the fourth quarter,
the Lions had a choice to
either kick a field goal on
a fourth down and extend
the lead to nine, or go for
it. Coach Henghold called
a play for senior, Tavon
Jenkins, illustrating his
confidence in him. Jenkins

hit the comer and scored,
giving the Lions a lead of
28 to 14 after a two point
conversion by Matt Kelly.
All in all, four rushing
touchdowns and the big
plays on their defensive
game gave the Lions an
enormous win over a 6A
powerhouse. Coach Heng-
hold comments after the
game: "I've been here for
6 years and it's our first
win against them, it feels
great." For all the seniors
on this team, this fourth
meeting with rival, Boca
High, gave them the win
they all were hoping for.
The team broke out in
chants and excitement dur-
ing the breakdown after
the game, and the Coach
yelled, "Ya just beat Boca
The next game is on Fri-
day October 8th against
Archbishop McCarthy, a
district game that may ar-
guably be called the single
most important game of
the Lions' season.

for the Boys & Girls Club-

just given that money to
them instead of indulging
in a one-hour special about
Hey, I'm completely cool
with his decision to join
Miami. No problem. I just
don't like the way it was
handled. Here's what I
think, LeBron: fire all these
so-called friends, posses, or
whatever you would like
to call them, and hire real
P.R. people. Hire people
who are qualified to give
you real advice that won't
make you look like a fool.
You are too good a player
to have the bad public im-
age you have right now.

LeBron James and his bu-
siness partner, Maverick
Carter, told CNN's Sole-
dad O'Brien that race was
a factor in the backlash he
received after announcing
that he was "taking his tal-
ents to South Beach."
"Do you think there's a role
that race plays in this?"
asked O'Brien, "I think so,
at times. It's always, you
know, a race factor," replied
LeBron, this is probably one
of the dumbest comments
you have made throughout
this entire ordeal. Listen,

let's get one thing straight:
I like LeBron James, but
he has been making some
pretty bad decisions since
joining the HEAT on July
To say that his race is the
reason that people are
burning his jerseys, cur-
sing him everywhere he
goes, and making him the
sixth most hated athlete in
America is pretty silly and
immature. It seems to me
like a last resort response
to all the people who are
questioning him.
People don't hate him be-

cause he's black; people
hate him because he humi-
liated the city of Cleveland,
the entire state of Ohio, and
let the drama explode at the
last possible second; he just
had to do a one-hour special
to announce that he didn't
want to be on a losing team,
and that he was joining the
HEAT? Why couldn't he
just make an announce-
ment on Twitter, and then
have a quick interview on
ESPN like Wade and Bosh?
Nothing majestic: just fast
and to the point.
