Boca Raton fire chief honors star of Spanish River High baseball players

TV show, 'Emergency'
BOCA RATON A star of
the TV show, "Emergen- I
cy," the first program that
followed the exploits of
parame-dics, was recently '
honored by Boca Raton
Fire Chief Tom Wood,
who oversees the city's k
Fire/Rescue squad.
Wood presented the Boca
Raton Fire Rescue Ser-
vices Excellence Award to
Randolph Mantooth, who
a h no Fire Chief Tom Wood with Randolp)
was the keynote speaker

at a seminar on firefighter
safety held at the Fire Res-
cue Services Administra-
tion Building, 6500 Con-
gress Avenue.
Mantooth spoke to more
than 150 firefighters from
the tri-county area on
firefighter safety and the
dangers of carbon mon-
oxide poisoning. He also
took time to pose for pic-
tures, signed autographs
and signed "Emergency"
His character on that show,
"Johnny Gage," was por-

trayed in a very positive
light and provided cred-
ibility for the paramedic
profession and was one of
the best marketing tools to
enhance Emergency Medi-
cal Services throughout
this country, Wood said.
In 1975, Mantooth said,
his personal experience
with carbon monoxide
poisoning and his real life
rescue by two paramedics
that day led to his current
campaign to make fire-
fighters aware of the dan-
gers of carbon monoxide

and to seek medical moni-
toring and rehabilitation at
fire scenes.
His support has been ex-
emplified by his service
as the honorary chairman
and spokesperson of the
County of Los Angeles
Fire Museum Association
since 2005.
The TV show, "Emergen-
cy," ran from 1972 to 1979.
In addition to Mantooth, it
starred Kevin Tighe, Julie
London, Bobby Troup and
Robert Fuller. It focuses
on the day-to-date opera-
tions of paramedics from
Los Angeles County Fire
Department Station 51.
The award presented to
Mantooth is inscribed with
the Vince Lombardi quote;
"The quality of a person's
life is in direct proportion
to their commitment to
excellence, regardless of
their chosen field of en-

hope to go to bat for the community

dent baseball teams at
Spanish River High School
spend a portion of the year
on the diamond.
But they want to stay active
all year long. So they'll be
leaving the base paths be-
hind for a while in favor of
working in the community.
"The Spanish River baseball
coaching staff and its teams
are all committed to achiev-
ing the highest standard of
excellence for their players
both on and off the field,"
said Clif Matis, Booster
Club president. That means
achievement in the class-
room, but also "participa-
tion in the philanthropies
and civic responsibility."
Their next foray into the
community will take place
Nov. 6 when the players
take part in the "The Light
the Night" walk-a-thon.

Student player Matthew
Poser is taking a lead role in
this event, and is also pro-
moting the team's desire to
take part in local activities.
"I am proud to say that this
year my team, the Spanish
River Sharks, is expanding
its reach to include commu-
nity outreach! The coach-
ing staff and the parents
are committed to teaching
us the importance of giving
back," he said in an email to
the Boca Raton Tribune.
"This Saturday, the Spanish
River Sharks and I are par-
ticipating in the 'The Light
the Night' Walk-a-thon for
the Leukemia and Lympho-
ma Society.

"Thank you so much for
your consideration and we
look forward to a wonderful
event," he added.
His mother, Jill, is one of
the most vocal cheerlead-
ers for the team. "They are
expanding their horizons,
moving from boys to men,"
Jill recently told the Rotary
Club Sunset, whose mem-
bers said they hope to work
with the youngsters.
"It's not about baseball acu-
men," she said. "It's more
about who you are, your
character, and your desire to
give back." The students are
making personal strides for

The Little Sharks from
Omni Middle School are
joining in, as are members
of the junior varsity team.
Jill and Clif told Rotarians
they are looking for spon-
sors to help out by encour-
aging baseball team mem-
bers to assist community
organizations. The Rotary
Sunset Club suggested the
students could help out at
the Nov. 7 Police Athletic
League half-marathon,
sponsored by the Rotary to
benefit PAL.
Clif said ideas like that

"help us to reach out to the
community." He noted that
Spanish River students are
"well known for citizenship
as well as academics and
athletics." About 90 per-
cent of graduates go on to
schools of higher education,
he said.
The team has already lined
up other activities for later
in the season. In addition
to helping out at this week-
end's walk-a-thon, they will
take part in the Next Gen-
eration Benefactors event
March 5, which aids the

Alzheimer's Association,
and will also participate in
the Alzheimer's Associa-
tion Memory Walk on April
9. They are also assisting
Habitat for Humanity.
Clif and Jill praised the
coaching staff for their lead-
ership and guidance: Varsity
Coach Bill Harvey, Assis-
tant Head Coach Mark Tru-
del; assistants Richie Lamas
(a Spanish River alum) and
Bennett Vivona, and Junior
Varsity Head Coach Dan
Rouah and Assistant Coach
Einar Atencio.

Palm Tran, Palm Beach County's public transportation agency, demonstrated consistent
ridership gains for fiscal year 2010, setting several fixed-route ridership records, ac-
cording to officials of the transportation authority.
Annual ridership increased by more than 300,000 passenger trips from the previous
year, as Palm Tran set a new record of 10,319,218 passengers, a 3.1 percent growth rate.
Average weekday passenger trips set a monthly record of 37,737 in September, beating
the previous record by more than 1,000. Average annual daily weekday ridership in FY-
2010 also increased by 3.5 percent, establishing a new record.
Nationally, public bus systems are reporting declines in the number of annual passenger
trips, but this has not been the case in Palm Beach County. Palm Tran has been able to
maintain high service levels through the support of the Board of County Commissioners
and the work of the Palm Tran Service Board (PTSB).
"I have watched Palm Tran and Palm Tran Connection grow by leaps and bounds,"
said County Commission Chairman Burt Aaronson. "I am very proud of what we have
In each of the past two years, Palm Tran has carried more than 10 million passengers,
the third time in the agency's history. Officials at Palm Tran said Palm Beach County
recognizes the importance of providing reliable and affordable public transportation for
its residents.

PBSO warns of acid spill scam usually

used on the elderly

New incidents of an el-
derly distraction scam a
fake acid spill have been
reported again in Florida,
particularly South Flori-
da, according to the Palm
Beach County Sheriff's Of-
Officials said PBSO has not
worked any cases involv-
ing this scam. The infor-
mation being distributed is
for awareness.
PBSO said the target is
usually an elderly female,
and items stolen are usu-
ally rings or bracelets being
worn by the victim.
According to the sheriff's
office, an unknown subject
or subjects con their way

into a home, stating there's
a problem with the water
quality or water pressure.
He or they say are testing
the system because a neigh-
bor has a leak, or they are
spraying for insects.
Sometimes, two individu-
als will gain entry. They
will either bring their own
glass or ask the target for
a cup or glass, into which
they will pour water and
then will add Alka-Seltzer
or some other bromide or
color agent.
They will then "acciden-
tally" spill a liquid on the
victim's hands. The woman
is told it is acid and that she
should remove her jewelry

and wash her hands imme-
diately, or she may be told
to go flush all the toilets
multiple times, or run the
water. Sometimes they will
ask for a glass of milk to
soak the jewelry. While the
victim is continually told
to keep washing her hands,
or running the water, the
thieves pocket the jewelry
& flee the scene.
PBSO said targets of the
crime may be followed
home from stores like Cost-
co, Wal-Mart, Publix, or a
flea market.
Anyone with information
about this or other type of
scam is urged to contact
Crime Stoppers at 1-800-

and came up with the five
that are the worst. He said
the number of "approaches"
actually totals seven because
the cameras will be set up
eastbound and westbound at
two of the crossroads.
Intersections getting camer-
as, the council decided, are:
East and west approaches at
NW 15th Avenue and Glades
*Northbound approach of
St. Andrews Boulevard and
Yamato Road.
*Southbound approach of
St. Andrews Boulevard and
Glades Road.

*Eastbound approach to Clint
Moore Road and Military
* East and west approaches to
St. Andrews Boulevard and
Glades Road
Morley said the cameras can
be moved to other intersec-
tions, if the city desires.
Actually, another red light
runner camera has already
been put up west of the
city limits, at Palmetto Park
and Powerline roads. That
was done after the Board of
County Commissioners ap-
proved a red light runner

Morley said the debate about
whether getting caught on
camera running a red light
was a civil or statutory in-
fraction was rendered moot
July 1, 2010, when the Mark
Wandall Traffic Safety Act
went into effect. Wandall
was killed by a car that went
through a red light in 2003.
Gov. Charlie Crist signed the
legislation creating the law
on May 13.
Approval of the ordinance
clears the way for the city to
select a contractor to install
the cameras. Morley said the
entire system will not go on
line until all the cameras are
in. He said there will be 30-
day grace period before cita-
tions are issued.
He noted there is an appeals
process allowing drivers
to sign an affidavit saying
they were not driving or the
car was stolen, among other
ways of opting out of the
ticket. Morley did say, how-
ever, that the owner of the
car is responsible for paying
the citation. The $158 fine
was set by the state.

Did you ever vote early? You've got to try it

My wife and I did two
things this past Sunday that
we are particularly proud
One, we went to church,
which is something we al-
ways do. But this time, we
actually got there early.
The second thing we did
which is not a weekly habit
was to vote. It was the first
time either one of us had
taken part in the vote-early
practice that only began
here in Florida a few years
We knew that Election Day
would likely be packed
with voters trying to ex-
press their opinions via bal-
lot on the condition of the
We figured there wouldn't
be a long line on the final
day of early voting par-
ticularly since the Hallow-
een trick-or-treaters were
just a few hours away.
Wrong! The line wrapped
around the building and
the parking lot was filled
with candidate supporters -

-i !

all of them the appropriate
distance away, I assume.
Well, we went to the end of
the line and started to wait.
(I'll reveal the ending right
now it took us about two
hours to cast our ballots
and leave.)
It actually wasn't that bad.
We got to talking with a
couple in front of us who
were also former New
Englanders. So the time
went by pretty fast. The
sun moved in and out of
the clouds, so sometimes it
was comfortable and other
times it was miserably hot.
It's too bad an enterpris-
ing entrepreneur didn't
come by with cold drinks
or snacks. We could have
used them. And that busi-
ness person would have
made a bundle.
You know, I heard people
mildly complaining about
the lengthy line, the heat
and the time factor. But
not one person left the line.
They all wanted to cast
their ballots for the election

that was to play out two
days later.
I know there has been a lot
of rancor during this cam-
paign. I think there was
more mudslinging this year
than any other time I can
remember. I don't recall
too many positive ads. If
"Joe Smith" was featured
in a TV ad, it was not about
Joe Smith, but a roster of
all of Joe Smith's oppo-
nent's bad traits. I heard
words like "dangerous"
and "liar" tossed around.
Back in journalism school,
we were taught that using
words like that could lead
to a lawsuit.
I'm glad that's over, but
I'm cure that such acrimo-
ny riled up voters enough
to pack the polls and en-
dure more than the usual
voter should endure to get
to the ballot box.
My wife and I felt the same
way. It was our duty as
Americans to take part in
the voting system. Certain-
ly we have spent enough

time discussing between
ourselves and with others
the sorry state of the na-
I think our feelings were
rubbed a little more raw
than usual because in the
past week, two homes in
our neighborhood were
foreclosed on. I saw an
eviction notice on the door
of one house.
But the voting process
went smoothly. I have to
credit Supervisor of Elec-
tions Susan Bucher with
making the process work
Let's face it; Palm Beach
County has had a lousy
voting system for much of
the past decade, from the
"butterfly ballot" of 2000
through the touch-screen
I can't tell you to go out
and vote. I can just say I
hope you did, either be-
fore or on Tuesday. Let's
see if the results help our
troubled nation.

candidate attacking anoth-
er. There was just too, too
much of that this year.
It's time for all of us to
take some time to let the
results of Tuesday's bal-
loting sink it. People are
calling this year's elec-
tion historic. Apparently,
such a massive win by one
political party has either
never happened before, or
hasn't happened in a cen-
tury or more.
Even before the election,
people seemed to know
that something dramatic
was in the wind. Too many
people didn't like the way
things were going and
that was reflected in many
Soon, it will be time for the
Republicans to make good
on what they have been
telling us all year long. If
the Republicans don't or
can't -- make things better
- as they have promised -
then they won a lot of seats
for nothing.
We, as citizens, must hold
their feet to the fire and
make sure they don't re-
peat some of the past mis-
takes that have plagued

There are issues that have
either been overlooked or
ignored. Unemployment
is still a major problem.
Small businesses need
incentives to grow. The
health care reform is like-
ly to be changed in some
fashion, if not tossed out
It's up to us to stay in touch
with our new political
leaders to tell them what
we want. They have been
telling us all year long that
they want to represent the
people. They have to stick
to their word.
We want to congratulate
Allen West for his victory
in U.S. House District 22.
We're anxious to see the
new ideas he'll be bringing
to that seat.
Also, congratulations to
Bill Hager for winning the
House District 87 race. He
seems like the right person
to follow Adam Hasner,
who, unquestionably, has
been one of the most ef-
fective, active and busy
representatives in Talla-
hassee. We wish Adam
well in whatever endeavor
he tries.
It's good to see Irv Slos-
berg back in the House

he held from 2000 to

Holiday trimmings

Watch next week's Boca
Raton Tribune for more
specifics on the rules for
the holiday house decorat-
ing contest we'll be spon-
soring this year.
It probably won't kick off
until after Thanksgiving,
but we want everyone to
know the regulations be-
fore the holiday season
gets too close.
We want everyone to take
part, to make the season
truly bright. There will be
prizes in various catego-
ries. So start rummaging
through the garage now for
those lights, wreaths, me-
norahs and other decora-
tions. We'll let you know
more next week.


By Dr. Synesio Lyra, Jr.

Don't Wait to Start Living!

Life does not start at 40,
nor at any other suggest-
ed stage of a person's de-
velopment. Its beginning
cannot be postponed by
any personal decision!
Fortunately, throughout
the ages, the world has
seen many young people
who were more alive than
others who, albeit much
older chronologically,
had allowed life to pass
them by; they were alive
only in the sense that
their name had not yet
appeared in any obituary.
Yet, there's much more
to life than the mere ac-
cumulation of days and
years in the existence of
any human. At any era of
the history of humanity,
one can find persons who
"die" relatively young,
even if their burial may

only occur many years
Life truly begins not at
20, 30, or 40, but once a
person is gripped by an
idea or ideal which begins
to unfold and is brought
to full realization. It may
take years to happen but
the steps toward its ful-
filment already represent
living at one's best!
Be ever mindful that in
the ways of death one
travels alone, while in the
paths of life one is always
accompanied! There are
no exchanges nor substi-
tutes for authentic living!
To all who are truly seri-
ous about life, direction
can be found on how to
enjoy it to the fullest, in
perpetuity, never in dis-
appointment but in total
radiance and with the

assurance of additional
happy surprises from un-
expected sources, bring-
ing abundant satisfac-
tion! No one can ever be
fulfilled with what only
money can acquire; it's
only from nobler and
more valid sources that
one's life may find its
nurture, direction, and
Choose life, and its full-
ness will gradually be ap-
portioned to you; follow
God's blueprint to live it
meaningfully in a world
lacking in meaning; and
anticipate the best in
spite of the indignities
constantly hurled at you!
Never wait for another
moment to start living;
start living now!

'Girl Who Kicked Hornet's Nest'

wraps up Swedish millennium trilogy

"You came to kill me" are
the first words heard in
"The Girl Who Kicked the
Hornet's Nest" as hero Lis-
beth Salander (Noomi Ra-
pace) lies in a hospital bed,
bruised and swathed in
bandages, emerging from
a coma.
The statement is pretty
much the essence of all
three parts of the Millen-
nium Trilogy by the late
Swedish author Stieg Lars-
son. Professional computer
hacker Lisbeth was abused
by her father as a child, and
she retaliated by trying to
set him on fire at age 12.
For poor Lisbeth it is kill
or be killed.
Since her violent incident
with dad, Lisbeth has been
in and out of mental insti-
tutions, and under the care
of dubious guardians who
have abused her further.
No wonder Lisbeth dis-
trusts and dislikes men in
There is one notable ex-
ception: Mikael Blomkvist
(Michael Nyqvist), a cru-
sading investigative jour-
nalist at Millennium maga-

zine. In installment one,
"Girl with the Dragon Tat-
too," Lisbeth helped Mi-
kael uncover a half-centu-
ry old Nazi plot involving
mutilation and murder of
women, and in the course
of their investi-
gation they had
a torrid fling.
"Dragon Tat-
too" remains
my favorite of
the Millennium
trilogy because
it combined
mystery, sus-
pense, blis-
tering action
and hot May-
December ro-
In part two, "The Girl Who
Played With Fire," Lisbeth
took center stage to be-
come kind of an avenging
feminist supergirl. As a
result of her desperate al-
tercations, she has a bullet
in her head and two other
parts of her body, and at
age 27 she is accused of
three counts of murder.
In this final installment,
Mikael moves back to

does his best to shield her
from police and bag guys
alike while she is helpless.
The Millennium series has
made a star of Lisbeth Sa-
lander, a thin, slight, dark-
haired beauty who does
martial arts moves with a
ballerina's grace.
The problem with "Hor-
net's Nest" is that it is
much more static than ei-
ther of the earlier chapters,
and it is bogged with plot

On that account there is some satisfying closure regarding the fate of Za-
lachenko, but there are oodles of other bad guys who must be dispatched
by Ms. Salander.
Paramount among these is Niedermann (Micke Spreitz), a hulking platinum-haired gi-
ant who just happens to be Lisbeth's half-brother. Other nasties include crooked psy-
chiatrist Dr. Peter Teleborian (Anders Ahlbon), and Evert Gullberg (Hans Alfredson)
and Fredrik Clinton (Lennart Hjulstrom), former heads of the shadowy, sinister "Sec-
tion" political faction.
Once Lisbeth regains her health and readies to face the music in court with her com-
passionate lawyer, Mikhail's sister Annika Giannini (Annika Hallin), she struts her all-
black colors, teases her hair into a Mohawk, and re-inserts all the hardware into her
various piercings in defiance of courtly decorum.
Plot threads tie up a little too neatly in this finale, but it still has action, intrigue and
style. I cringe to think what is in store when this series is remade in the USA with
American actors, so catch the real thing while you can. *- j

The Cove Waterfront Dining

The Cove at 1645 SE Third
Court (The Cove Shop-
ping Center in Deerfield)
954-421-9272 is a 34 year
old bar and restaurant with
a menu that's being updat-
ed as of this writing.
We found 22 items listed
as "appetizers and small
plates",decided to sample
only 4. The nice size por-
tion of seared tuna had lit-
tle taste, needing both the
wasabi and ponzu sauce to
bring out flavor. Six nice
sized braised beef ravioli
were rich and hearty with
root vegetables plus asiago
and parmesan cheeses in a
fine red wine reduction.
Escargot out of shell -
mild tasting needed rich
butter/garlic desperately.
The cap of melted provolo-
ne had little taste and there
was too much of it. The
winners in this category
were the wild mushroom
toasts shitake mush-
rooms, olive oil, shallots
with thyme and parsley,
topped with grated par-
mesan on sliced baguettes
- superb! One of our fa-
vorites calamari served
with a marinara sauce was
perfection. Breaded rings
were crispy with full flavor
with or without the sauce.
A hugh portion that's one
of the best!
Three soups are listed. The
lobster and shrimp bisque

was rich and smooth, very
tasty. The Bahamian conch
chowder with a splash of
sherry, a slightly sweet yet
spicy concoction excel-
lent taste that lingers on
the palate. Lastly, the New
England clam chowder
- rich, chunky pieces of
clam in thick broth our
favorite. A must try!
We sampled two of the
eight salads featured. But-
ternut squash and pears
with shallots and pecans
over greens needed the
spicy pecans vinaigrette
to make it work. The crab
avocado salad with can-
died pecans, baby tomato
and grilled pineapple was
a great idea but there was
very little to the crab too
much mayo. The crab fla-
vor was missing.
"Seafood" entrees were
eleven in number. We
chose seared scallops with
pineapple soy sauce, jas-
mine rice and vegetables.
The pan seared sea scallops
were weak and flavorless.
The coconut shrimp very
heavily breaded in coco-
nut needed the nice colada
sauce to become a flavor-
ful mouthful. The broiled
seafood platter consisted
of nice shrimp and scal-
lops plus a lightly breaded
filet of sole that was dainty
and delicious plus a couple
of oysters Rockefeller-

wonderful treat. The best
was seafood Jambalaya
with shrimp, chicken,
smoked sausage simmered
in a very spicy Cajun broth
plus mixed vegetables and
white rice. If you like a
dish with spice and great
flavor- this is it!
While the "Landlubber"
section had nine offer-
ings we elected to try
the Cove's favorite for
locals. The Danish baby
backs were unfortunately
tasteless though the BBQ
sauce they were bathed in
was quite good. Next time
we'll check out the other
beef, pork and chicken
items listed therein.
Desserts a half dozen
choices made it difficult
to decide but we lucked
out with a homemade key
lime pie don't remember
having any better try it,
you'll love it. Love, for
chocoholics, comes in the
form of the Cove's tux-
edo bombe chocolate
genoise, white, milk and
dark chocolate mousse
with a chocolate ganache
coating so rich but not
cloying great!
The Cove, a family owned
restaurant, seats up to 400
diners, both inside and
waterfront from 11AM
to 10PM daily, Fridays to

Te Jtoca Raton Tribune

By Mike Gora

Husband hires divorce lawyer wife

consulted, which may not be legal

Question: Six months ago, I
was referred to a sole prac-
titioner, divorce lawyer in
Boca Raton. During the
course of a week, I talked
to her over the phone three
times about my case. We
discussed the issues in de-
tail. She did not bill me for
her time.
We discussed the marital
facts and the personal pro-
blems that my husband and
I had been having, and my
suspicions of his having an
ongoing extramarital affair
We did not get into the fine
details of the financial as-
pects, but did discuss our
incomes, and his business
history, and an inheritance
that I would soon receive.
We discussed custody is-
sues, including the possibil-
ity ofkeeping the children in
Catholic education, ;hl, i.. gi
high school, and making
sure that could get my hus-
band to pay for it, and for
tutoring one of the children.
As the result of those dis-
cussions, I decided that I
really liked the attorney, but
that I was not yet ready to
go ahead with the divorce.
While the lawyer did not
charge for her time, she told
me her hourly rate and re-
tainer requirements, and I
told her that would be call-
ing her back, when I made
up my mind.
I was a bit shocked yes-
terday when I was served
with my husband's divorce
papers signed by the same

lawyer that I had talked to
six month ago. My husband
denies that he knew that I
had talked to the lawyer,
but I believe that it was too
coincidental. I may have left
her card in my purse. He is
not above looking ;lih ,, ig
my ;hliigs
I called the lawyer to com-
plain, but her secretary said
she could not talk to me,
because she represented
my husband, but I was told
that she had no recollection
of our conversation, and no
notes. This does not seem
fair, can she represent my
husband, or is she disquali-

Answer: Under the Flor-
ida Bar's recently passed
rule 4-1.18, entitled Du-
ties to Prospective Client,
your husband may have to
choose new counsel.
A "Prospective Client" is a
person who discusses the
possibility of forming an
attorney-client relationship
with respect to a prospec-
tive matter. Even when no
client-lawyer relationship
is finalized, and no fees are
paid, a lawyer who has dis-
cussions with a prospective
client shall not use or reveal
information learned in that
consultation, unless the two
parties agree, in writing.
Under limited circumstanc-
es, another attorney at the
initial lawyer's firm could
represent your husband, but
here there is no other at-

torney available. It is quite
possible that the attorney
had no recollection of your
calls, and made no notes,
but that would not make a
difference. She should have
entered your name and that
of her husband into her con-
flict log, a list of clients and
prospective clients and their
mates, and then run a cross-
check when you called, and
when your husband called.
There have been a few re-
ported instances when a
wealthy person planning a
divorce tried to intention-
ally conflict out many of
the well known divorce
lawyers in the community,
by investing in paid confe-
rences with several of them.
If this can be proven, that
person may have waived
the privilege usually given
those conversations by his
or her fraudulent intent.
From your question it does
not appear that you had
such intent.
If the lawyer you describe
will not withdraw from
the matter, after receiving
a letter from you or from
the lawyer you decide to
hire, a motion can be made
to have the judge in your
case disqualify the attorney.
A grievance may be filed
against the offending law-

Consequences of God

(Part 5)

This is the fifth in a series con-
sidering the issue of "God"
and his existence. In my
own personal search regard-
ing the existence of God, this
argument, often referred to
as the teleological argument,
was the strongest. Isaac
Newton (1642-1727) implic-
itly confirmed the validity of
this argument when he wrote,
"This most beautiful system
of the sun, planets and com-
ets, could only proceed from
the counsel and dominion of
an intelligent and powerful
Being." The argument sim-
ply goes like this:
(1) Every design has a de-
(2) The universe has a highly
complex design.
(3) Therefore, the universe
has a Designer.
Dr. John Cleveland Cothran,
a mathematician and chem-
ist: "If you think strongly
enough, you will be forced by
science to believe in God...
the discovery of atomic struc-
ture has now revealed that in
all these examples of chemi-
cal behavior definite laws
prevail, not haphazardness or
chance... each atom of every
one of the 102 elements con-
sists of exactly the same three
kinds of electrical particles:
protons (positive), electrons
(negative), and neutrons... so
that all the millions of differ-
ent kinds of substances, both
elements and compounds,
simplify down to three kinds
of electrical particles which,
in turn, appear to be only dif-
ferent forms of the one pri-
mary entity, electricity, which
finally, may be only a form or

attribute or manifestation of
the ultimate in simplicity: en-
ergy... the material universe
is unquestionably one of
system and order, not chaos;
of laws, not chance and hap-
hazards." ("The Inescapable
Conclusion," The Evidence
of God in an Expanding Uni-
verse, John Clover Monsma,
pp. 37-41)
Time will not permit us to
consider the literally thou-
sands of examples of com-
plexity and design that may
be observed from the small-
est atom to the largest celes-
tial blob (made up of galax-
ies and large bubbles of gas),
but permit me to mention
one more. Our planet, earth,
has highly precise and in-
terdependent environmental
conditions called "anthrop-
ic" constants, that are so ex-
tremely fine tuned to support
life here on earth, that if any
where changed or altered
that life here would become
1. Oxygen levels- Oxygen
comprises 21% of the atmo-
sphere. If it were 25%, fires
would erupt spontaneously;
if it were 15%, human beings
would suffocate.
2. Atmospheric Transpar-
ency- If it were less trans-
parent, not enough solar
radiation would reach the
earth's surface. If it were
more transparent, we would
be bombarded with far too
much radiation.
3. Moon-Earth Gravitational
Interaction- If it were greater
than it currently is, tidal ef-
fects on the oceans, atmo-
sphere and rotational period

would be too great. If it were
less, orbital changes would
cause climatic instabilities.
4. Carbon Dioxide Levels-
If CO2 levels were higher
than it is now, we would
have a runaway greenhouse
effect. If it was lower than
it is now, plants would not
be able to maintain efficient
photosynthesis. (I have listed
4 of these constants, while at
present over 100 of these an-
thropic constants have been
listed by Hugh Ross in his
book "Why I Believe in Di-
vine Creation.")
Dr. A. Cressy Morrison, a
physician and former presi-
dent of the New York State
Academy of Science stated:
"We have found that the
world is in the right place,
that the crust is adjusted to
within ten feet, and that if the
ocean were a few feet deeper
we would have no oxygen or
vegetation. We have found
the earth rotates in twenty-
four hours and that were
this revolution delayed, life
would be impossible. If the
speed of the earth around the
sun were increased or de-
creased materially, this histo-
ry of life, if any, would be en-
tirely different... Considering
the bulk of the earth, its place
in space and the nicety of the
adjustments, the chances of
some of the adjustments oc-
curring is in the order of one
to a million, and the chances
of all of them occurring can-
not be calculated even in the
billions..." (Man Does Not
Stand Alone: Cressy Morri-
son, pp. 94,95)

FAU's College of Business to honor

Mike Jackson with leaders award

Atlantic University's Col-
lege of Business and pre-
senting sponsor, BankA-
tlantic, are hosting the 20th
annual Business Leader
of the Year awards break-
fast on Friday, January 28,
2011, at the Boca Raton
Resort & Club.
This year's program cele-
brates the accomplishments
of Mike Jackson, AutoNa-
tion's chairman and chief
executive officer. New this
year, sponsorships for the
event will assist the college
in launching the Business
Leader Scholars program.
The Business Leader of the
Year award celebrates the
accomplishments of busi-
ness leaders and their on-
going legacy in improving
the overall business envi-
According to FAU, Jack-
son meets the criteria of
this award, exhibiting traits
which measure effective
leadership in business, in-
cluding vision, innovation
and change, knowledge
and experience, transpar-
ency and integrity, and so-
cial responsibility.
Jackson joined AutoNa-
tion in 1999, serving as
CEO and director of the
board. Prior to his arrival
at AutoNation, he worked
at Mercedes Benz where
he reinvigorated the com-
pany's U.S sales.
For his role in reversing
the company's fortunes,
Jackson steadily moved up
through Mercedes manage-
ment ranks, and in 1997,
he was named president of
Mercedes-Benz USA.
Today, AutoNation is the


Mike Jackson, AutoNa-
tion chairman and chief
executive officer
country's largest automo-
tive retailer, selling over
400,000 units each year
and servicing over 5 mil-
lion vehicles. Even during
the economic recession,
AutoNation, under Jack-
son's leadership, managed
to post solid financial re-
Jackson has received nu-
merous leadership awards
including the Automotive
Hall of Fame in February
1994. The Hall of Fame's
President Jeffrey Leetma
said that Jackson's "lea-
dership at AutoNation is
significant not only in the
sheer volumes of units de-
livered but in raising the
bar in all areas of the cus-
tomer experience."
Sponsorship for the event
includes a corporate table
and event admission at
the Boca Raton Resort &
Club. In addition, spon-
sorships will launch the
Business Leader Scholars
program. A portion of the
sponsorship dollars raised
from the Business Leader
of the Year awards event
will provide financial as-
sistance to FAU students.
The level of sponsorships

for the event will deter-
mine the number of schol-
arships awarded.
Since 1991, FAU's College
of Business has presented
the Business Leader of the
Year award program, hon-
oring the work of outstand-
ing contributors to the
overall business climate
of the southeast region of
Florida and the state.
Jackson joins other highly
honored recipients of the
award, including Ronald
Assaf, Alexander Drey-
foos, Jim Moran, Wayne
Huizenga, Carl DeSantis,
Bud Paxson, Jerry Levin,
Pat Moran, Jeb Bush, Alan

ball for a 50-yard touch
down to take a 7-3 lead.
Soon after Tevin Spells ran
a 41-yard touchdown mid-
way through the first quar-
ter to bring the lead to 14-
3. Eventually, the Bobcats
were able to score a field
goal in the second to bring
the score to 14-6 and bring
some momentum for Boca,
but on the next offensive
drive running back Mar-
cus Gaskins ran the ball
for 80-yards on one play
scoring a touchdown that
brought them ahead 21-6.
The game went scoreless
until Keith Byars ran in for
an 11-yard touchdown to

The contribution of the
body to the golf swing has
been over emphasized for
years. I guess one reason
for this fact is that body po-
sitions were easy to point
out in a golf magazine.
Problem is, the over use
of the body or excess body
motion continues to be the
killer of the golf swing
for many a golfer, holding
them back from their true
The biggest killer by far is
the starting of your down-
swing with your shoul-
ders. The body has such a
small territory to cover in
the downswing while the
arms have so far to travel
that you MUST start your
downswing with your arms
or you will travel over the
top on your downswing
causing you to pull the ball
and more importantly re-
lease the power angle cre-
ated at the top of your back-
swing too early.
Another by product of start-
ing your shoulders first on
the downswing is swinging
on too steep a plane during
your approach to the golf
ball. You can get away with
swinging a little steep with
a wedge up to a seven iron.
Once you get in to the lon-

ger clubs you need to get
the arms going first so the
club shallows out on the
The lie angle on a wedge
(the lie angle is a measure-
ment from the center of
the shaft to the ground in
degrees) would be about
64 degrees. On a driver the
lie angle is 55 degrees. All
clubs are swung on plane,
being the shaft angle at ad-
dress and every golf club
has it's own plane. The lon-
ger the golf club the flatter
or more shallow the plane.
To get the longer clubs to
shallow out you need to
start your arms earlier on
the down swing.
You may feel a little flat
or rounded on your swing
with a driver but that's a
good thing. A perfect exam-
ple of what I'm saying here
is Sergio Garcia. He starts
the arms down early about
as well as anyone has since
Ben Hogan did. Ben Hogan
described his downswing
as like pulling an arrow out
of a quiver. Tiger Woods
says his down swing feels
like his arms are falling out
of the sky in front of his
chest. Al Geiberger said
the downswing was like
ringing a bell. They are all
saying the same thing, get
your arms going first in the

Take a look at Jim Furyk.
You may think he has a fun-
ny swing but watch how he
drops his arms first on the
down swing. Many a golf-
er like Jim Furyk, (Tony
Lema, Lee Trevino, Freddy
Couples) swing steep on
the back swing so they can
fall to a shallow position on
the downswing. It is a lot
easier to fall down to the
plane rather than rise up
to it. Taking the golf club
back low and behind you
might cause you to swing
steep on the down swing
because you need to turn
your shoulders first to get
the golf club out in front of
you to get to the golf ball.
Pretend like you're facing
12 o'clock while at the ad-
dress position. Then take
your club to the top of the
backswing. Pick your head
up an look at the 2 o'clock
position. Hold that position
in your chest and head and
start pumping the golf club
down with your arms hold-
ing the body perfectly still.
That's the feeling you need
to get the arms going first.
Another great drill is to put
a stick in the ground about
three feet high and one foot
outside your back foot and
even with the golf ball.
Try to put the stick in the
ground at the same angle as
the shaft on your golf club.
Take the golf club back
outside the stick and bring
it down to the ball inside
the stick.
Whatever drill you use get
your arms going first!

Have They Improved The Master

Championship? I Don't Think So.

Swing Like A Pirate.


By: Bobby Lopez, PGA

I can't tell you how disap-
pointed I am in the powers
to be at The Masters Golf
Championship. They've
ruined my favorite golf
tournament. I'm quite cer-
tain that Bobby Jones is
turning in his grave!
The Master's has cho-
sen to lengthen their golf
course to the point that
90% of the field doesn't
have a prayer in compet-
ing for the opening major
championship of the 2006
season. I grant you that
Master's officials certainly
should have concern for
their championship be-
ing won by a score like
22 under par. Compared
to the US Open, known
for its difficult conditions
making even par a winner
score again, the Masters at
Augusta National with its
wide rolling fairways and
light rough became out-
dated in today's long ball
hitting environment.
The same long hitting line-
up is hitting it long at the
US Open too but it's not
just the length that's caus-
ing the higher scores. It's
the super fast greens and
tight fairways with con-
siderable rough that makes
it very difficult for any
player to reach the green
in regulations once in deep
rough's grasp.
At the Player's Champion-
ship we watched the best
PGA touring profession-
als in the business agonize
over a par three of only
123 yards. What made the
Masters committee decide
that only a 240 yard par
three could tame today's

long hitting bullies?
Tighten up the golf course
I say, don't lengthen it.
Add a vicious intimidat-
ing rough that would make
even the longest hitters
reach for their 1 iron or
a three wood to not risk
hitting their drive in the
rough and lose a stroke,
(or maybe even your ball)
to a deep club swallowing
Not only would the scores
go up but at the same time
you would bring more
players into contention and
in my estimation bring out
the best ball strikers not
just the long knockers.
Doesn't NASCAR do the
same thing? Look at how
successful NASCAR is!
They control the speed of
the cars so that more com-
petitors are bunched up at
the finish to create a more
exciting race.
Maybe the powers to be

their glory, high income

sense as a bunch of red-
necks with a beer in their

The Tale of Michael Beasley

When Miami traded Mi-
chael Beasley for a second
round pick on July 10, 2010
I couldn't help but laugh at
it. No, not because I didn't
like Beasley, but at the
fact that Miami traded the
player who at one point was
thought to be the "savior" of
an ailing franchise.
Back when the Heat was
15-67 Miami fans couldn't
wait for the draft to come
around so we could pick
our new savior, the one
who with Wade, would
bring the Heat out of
the ashes and make
the Heat a relevant
team once again. Well, that
didn't happen. The only
reason Miami was relevant
again was because of the re-
birth of Dwyane Wade.
Let me be perfectly clear
with you, I was never sold
on Michael Beasley. Yes, '
he was a terrific college
player, but some players
are just that, terrific col-
lege players. When he came
out of Kansas State after
only one year I was a little
hesitant at the fact that Mi-
ami was going to draft this
kid. Because let's face it,
a 19 year old kid isn't ex-
actly what Miami needed.
There has only been a hand-
ful of players that come in
to the NBA in their teens
and make a difference and
I wasn't sold Beasley was
going to be one of them.
The irony of the story is,
our 2nd round pick Mario
Chalmers, played all 82
games that season and Bea-
sley was a bench warmer
that came in with the second

I eraged 26 points and
12 rebounds as a Kansas
State Wildcat.
I gave him the benefit of
the doubt and was looking
forward to his second sea-
son in the Heat uniform. I
was so pumped for it that
I decided to buy his jer-
sey... (Anyone want to buy it
off me?) Heat great Udonis
Haslem had been the star-
ting power forward for the
Miami Heat for as long as
I can remember, but in the
2009 season, Haslem gave
way for Beasley to start
in his place. He started 78
games in his second season,
and his averages were a lit-
tle better, Beasley averaged
14 points and 6 rebounds
per game; an astonishing
one point increase from his

rookie season.
Beasley was never a good
fit in Miami. Pat Riley fi-
nally realized that on July
10, 2010 when the Miami
Heat signed LeBron James,
Chris Bosh, and re-signed
Dwyane Wade. Beasley
was traded to the Minneso-
ta Timberwolves for a 2011
and 2014 second-round
draft picks.
One of the main reasons
Beasley was never go-
ing to be a good
fit in Miami is the
fact that he is pretty
bad in the defensive
end. He never ran back to
defense, he looked lost in
most of the defensive rota-
tions when he was on the
court and that caused him to
lose focus in the offence as
well. Beasley was a double-
double machine in college
but in the NBA not so much.
I expect nothing but suc-
cess to Michael as he takes
his talents to Minnesota. He
still has the potential of be-
ing a great player but that
was never going to have
happened in Miami where
he would have rotted on the
bench behind LeBron, Bosh
and Haslem. Timberwolf
Beasley is already showing
flashes of what an amazing
player he can be with an av-
erage of 15 points per game
and 7 rebounds. He had a
game of 21 points and 10
rebounds, something that
took him a while to get in
Miami. So here's to you
Michael Beasley, prove me
wrong, become the best
player in the NBA with the
Timberwolves and show
Heat fans, like myself, that
we are wrong for writing
you off.
