Chris Evert's 21st annual
Chris Evert/Raymond Ja-
mes Pro-Celebrity Tennis
Classic raised more than
$700,000 to benefit ne-
glected and abused chil-
dren in South Florida
during two days of tennis
at the Delray Beach Ten-
nis Center.

This year's event was one
of the best to date. "The
turnout this year was
great, we had big crowds
and it was just amazing"
said Chris Evert, the host
of the event.
This year's edition had
the most star studded
line-up in the event's his-
tory with tennis legends
Martina Navratilova, Se-
bastien Grosjean, Anna
Koumikova, actors Jef-

frey Donovan from the
hit-show Burn Notice,
Alan Thicke from the
show Growing Pains, co-
median Jon Lovitz from
Saturday Night Live, mu-
sicians Gavin Rossdale
and David Cook, among
many others.
David Cook was without
a doubt one of the most
popular of the celebri-
ties at the event "We sold
a lot of tickets thanks to

David" said Chris Evert.
"David actually ap-
proached us about play-
ing. And he just started
learning. It takes a lot of
courage for David to do
David Cook began playing
tennis only eight months
ago and was already out
on the courts.

will continue in 2011. The Centre for the Arts at Mizner

operation of the Count de Hoernle Amphitheater over to
the city. Fears that the Festival ofArts BOCA would be

Yesterday, we touched on
baseball's eviction from
the Olympics. That gives
it something in common
with tug of war, which
was an Olympic event
from 1900 to 1920. But it
wasn't without controver-
sy. In 1908, three eight-man
squads of British policemen
swept that event, after the
Americans withdrew be-
cause the Liverpool cops
had extra-heavy shoes.
Whose was the first num-
ber ever retired by the Mi-
ami Heat, even though he
never played for the team?
A) Larry Bird
B) Kareem Abdul Jabbar
C) Michael Jordan
D) Shaquille O'Neal

Q: Is there a proper way of disposing of unused or out-
dated prescription drugs?

A: Yes. Most prescription drugs should not be flushed
down the toilet or drain, so it is suggested that you
locate a community drug take-back program such as
Operation Medicine Cabinet, which is offered in Palm
Beach County. The next event will be held Saturday
November 13 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. in the parking lot of
the Town Center Mall, 6000 West Glades Road.

quickly responded Oh
man, this by a landslide.

confidence at all in a back
In his first Celebrity-Pro
Classic event, Cook went
1-1 with a win coming on
Saturday with Frenchman
Sebastien Grosjean and a
loss on Sunday with Mar-
tina Navratilova.
"I was having butterflies
like nothing else, but they
made it really fun and easy.
All things considered I did
okay this year," Cook later
told The Boca Raton Tri-
The most anticipated
match of the event was on
Sunday when Christ Evert
and actor, Scott Folley

took on tennis great Anna
Koumikova and musician
Gavin Rossdale. Kourniko-
va and Rossdale defeated
Evert and Folley 6-4 but
the match was a back and
forth battle that made it
look as if Folley and Ross-
dale were professional ten-
nis players playing along-
side Kournikova and Evert.
"The competition this year
was great. It was better than
years before, the celebrities
keep getting better and bet-
ter every year," Evert told
the Boca Raton Tribune af-
ter the match.
In all, the 21stAnnual Chris
Evert/Raymond James Pro-
Celebrity Tennis Classic
raised more than $700,000
in the event alone.
Afterward, people had
nothing but nice things to
say about the event and
Chris Evert herself. Ten-

resident Vince Spadea said
"Chris Evert is amazing.
She's been doing this for
so many years and it's get-

gets people to come out and
support her in the stands for
this great cause."
"This is my second year
coming back to this event,"
actor Jeffrey Donovan of
the hit show Burn Notice
said after the closing of the
event "and her energy is
amazing. I told her as soon
as I got out of the car; 'Your
charity has the most gener-
ous spirits of any charities
I've been part of' No one
treats you better than her
and her staff."
Not only did the event raise
over $700,00 but on Satur-
day, the event's annual Gala
dinner was held at the Boca
Raton Resort and it raised

over $16U,UUU. Some ot
the action items were: a
US Open ticket package
with seats in the USTA
President's Box that went
for $19,000; two roundtrip
tickets to fly anywhere in
the world on Swiss Interna-
tional Airlines that went for
$13,000; and a Wimbledon

Tickets and VIP tours at
television shows were also
popular. A visit to the set

Jeffrey Donovan brought-
in $11,000, an American

$6,000, and two Fox &
Friends backstage visits
netted a combined $9,000.

Festival of the Arts Boca,
SArt BOCA the signature event that has

"Planning is well underway
for the fifth annual festival
as part of the organization's
continuing commitment to
bring high quality cultural
programming to the com-
munity," said Charlie Ru-
therford, chairman of the
SFCFA board.
IP "The SFCFA's board is ex-
Scited to renew its commit-
ment to expanding cultural
opportunities for our com-
Smunity," Rutherford said.
"The recent agreement with
mred the responsibility of the city to assume responsi-
le Mizer Park Amphithe- ability for the amphitheater

lut the Schmidt Family cultural arts programming
entiree for the Arts has ta- at this and other venues,
en over, and the show will including the Mizner Park

Cultural Arts Center."
Rutherford said that board
members and major donors
including the Schmidt Fa-
mily Foundation pledged con-
tinuing support at the SFCFA's
recent Board meeting, re-
cognizing the important role
that the SFCFA plays and its
many achievements.
More than a million atten-
dees have enjoyed the Am-
phitheater for the annual
festival, free community
performances and 125 pop-
ular commercial concerts
by an all-star roster of en-
tertainers including Norah
Jones, Harry Connick, Jr.,
Ringo Starr and Aretha
Franklin, among many oth-
ers. Many thousands of
school children have partici-
pated in the SFCFA's Kids
programs provided at no
charge for low income chil-
dren, Rutherford noted.
The SFCFA was founded
to provide Boca Raton with
a center for the arts com-
prised of a museum of art
and a unique, world class

outdoor performance venue
designed to unite the com-
munity through culture and
encourage the growth of
performing arts in the area.
The $6 million Count de
Hoemle Amphitheater, built
and operated since 2002 by
the SFCFA at no cost to the
City, was key to expanding
access to cultural and com-
munity programming and
set the stage for the widely
acclaimed Festival of the
Arts Boca.
"We are excited to build on
this foundation and plan to
announce the 2011 Festival
roster in the near future. We
are looking at a diverse pro-
gram including symphonic
music, another cinema with
orchestra, concert opera,
ballet, jazz and literature,"
said Charles Siemon, an SF-
CFA founder. "As we look
to the future, we are grate-
ful to the generous donors
and supportive community
members who have played
a role in helping us to fur-
ther SFCFA's mission."

The annual Festival of the
Arts has brought intera-
tional recognition to Boca
Raton with concerts and
lectures featuring such per-
formers and writers as Itzak
Perlman, Salmon Rushdie,
Renee Fleming, Joshua Bell
and the Russian National
Orchestra. "With The Festi-
val of the Arts Boca, SFC-
FA has created the signature
cultural identity for the City
and Downtown Boca Raton
that cities such as Charles-
ton and Aspen have long
enjoyed," Rutherford said.
Siemon said that while the
economic downturn and
other factors adversely im-
pacted the SFCFA's ability
to raise funds for the Am-
phitheater's annual operat-
ing costs, SFCFA is proud
of its contribution to the
community. The construc-
tion, operation and pro-
gramming of the Amphithe-
ater over the past
eight years represents a pri-

Palm Beach County Tax
Collector Anne M. Gan-
non has announced her of-
fice received a settlement
of $710,681.93 from Winn
Dixie Corporation for un-
paid tangible personal
property taxes.
In a settlement that was
reached on October 14,
2010, Winn Dixie, which
operated 87 stores in Palm
Beach County at the time
they filed for Chapter 11
re-organization, agreed to
pay 80 percent of the value

of the tangible property
and 7 percent interest. In
July of 2010 Winn Dixie
announced it would close
30 stores, including 9 in
Palm Beach County.
"My office received pay-

the settlement on October
29, 2010," reported Gan-
non. "This is good news
for the citizens of Palm
Beach County and I want
to thank my staff for their
diligent efforts in working
out the settlement."
Tangible personal proper-

ty, Gannon said, includes all
assets other than real estate
that physically exist. Assets
such as stock certificates and
franchises represent only

tangible property. However,

other equipment used in a
business or to earn income

My dad was more than a father. He

was a veteran

Each year, it seems a strug-
gle to entice people to take
time away from their ev-
eryday activities to honor
veterans, both on Memo-
rial Day and Veterans Day.
Today is one of those days.
Activities are planned in
Boca Raton and in other
communities later this
week. It shouldn't be hard
to find a ceremony to at-
tend, or just to take a mo-
ment to give some thought
to the men and women who
fought wars in the past and
those serving now.
I don't have to look far to
find a great veteran. Actu-
ally, he was the greatest
man I ever met. He was
my father a proud soldier
from the "Greatest Gen-
eration," those who fought
in World War II.
My father spent three
years in the Army, most
of it overseas. He com-
manded a troop that built
landing fields for Ameri-
can aircraft.
There is a bit of a Florida
connection. He trained at
the former MacDill Field

(now MacDill Air Force
Base) and began his ser-
vice as a second lieuten-
ant. He was promoted to
captain when he served in
the South Pacific.
Even though he served
only three years, that term
meant a lot to him. He
shared stories with his
children the positive ones
about courageous men and
daring deeds.
He wasn't just a soldier, he
was a diplomat. He told us
how men in his command
looked up to him as their
own father, and he often
spent late nights dealing
with their tearful personal
And while some people
might brag about the num-
ber of enemy combatants
killed in the line of duty,
I'm proud to say my fa-
ther never took a life. Yes,
there were snipers on the
perimeter of the airfields,
and he occasionally had to
fire back. But it was usu-
ally night time and hard to
My father helped me re-

live the memories of
his service when, in the
1970s, the troops he had
served with began orga-
nizing reunions. The first
took place in Washington,
D.C., and I accompanied
dad. I met many of the
men he served with and
found them an amiable and
outstanding lot. Brave,
too. Many continued their
service in the Army after
World War II ended. By
the time I met them, some
had retired from the corps.
Many, too, returned to the
South Pacific to see what
became of the islands they
inhabited for three years.
They showed films and
slides of the rebirth of
what had been destroyed
In all, my dad and I at-
tended three reunions, an-
other one in Washington,
D.C. and one in Omaha,
Nebraska, in a small town
which was and contin-
ues to be the home of the
Strategic Air Command.
I've been lucky enough
to meet the men who put

their lives on the line in
the middle of one of the
fiercest conflicts of the
20th century. It's much
easier to know the attitude
of the men who served,
the thoughts they had for
families left behind and
the memories they brought
I stayed in touch with some
of the troops, and had to
deliver the tragic news in
1989 that my father had
passed away.
And little by little, the
notes, the Christmas cards
and the messages from the
men also trickled down to
On my father's grave 1,500
miles north of here is a line
listing his rank (he was
discharged as a major) and
the fact he served in the
Army during World War II.
If he were here today, I
would hug him and tell
him how proud I am to be
his son. But my mother,
who joined him this past
February, will certainly
pass along the message.
If you have a veteran in
your family or among
friends, remember them
today. It takes barely a
moment, but will do both
of you a world of good.

It was interesting to notice
that the Town Center mall

This truly means that the

community to take part.
Our condolences

Normally, I like to keep
this column upbeat. But
all of us here at the Boca
Raton Tribune are sad-
dened by a loss in the fam-
ily of Mr. and Mrs. Barry

Their son, Larry, 45,
passed away recently of a
heart condition, according
to his father, who writes
a popular column in the
Boca Raton Tribune and
is a well-known figure in
public relations and com-
munity activism.

"He had so many friends
and never met a stranger,"
Barry says about his son in
his column elsewhere in
today's paper. "E 'crI OIn
instantly gravitated to him
because of him his outgo-
ing personality."

I went to sit Shiva with the
Epsteins after we learned
of Larry's passing. In fact,
more than 200 people vis-
ited the Epstein home to
offer condolences.

As a memorial to his son,
donations can be sent to
the University of Miami
Heart Project at Jackson
Memorial Hospital.

Cultivating a Peaceful


Insecure individuals suffer
from an inability to adapt
themselves to a variety of
life situations; they avoid
anything and anyone unfa-
miliar to them. By nature,
they are often combative
as well, when people and
situations don't match their
pre-conceived molds.
These personalities literally
suspect and dislike a large
number of the persons they
must interact with. It starts
with family, and extends to
many others they cannot
avoid in society, such as
doctors, hairdressers, insu-
rance agents, sales clerks,
just to name very few.
Naturally, it is most reason-
able that humans should be
on their guard, to avoid un-
necessary intrusions from
undesirable manipulators
or unscrupulous agents of
any kind. But living with

suspicion of anyone or
anything is more a mark of
bondage than a display of
the freedom and courage
all human creatures can en-
People should carefully
choose their battles, and
fight each one to win. But
being isolated from others,
or displaying a resistant at-
titude all the time, will lead
to defeat far more than to
genuine conquest!
If we cut ourselves from
others, we not only miss
what others may have to
offer us, but we also limit
our influence, by keeping
them from receiving what
we are able to share! One
will hardly impact others
if suspicious of them; nei-
ther will one receive the
benefits those persons are
capable of providing.
Most of our fears are imag-

iary, not real. Some people
spend more time and en-
ergy engaging in fictitious
warfare, instead of reserv-
ing all their resources to
fight and win the real, tan-
gible battles that will occa-
sionally assail them.
Avoid adding fuel to any
fire, or starting unworthy
conflicts. A life lived in
perpetual suspicion is a life
half-lived; it is a form of
imprisonment which can
damage any individual!
Choose to cultivate a
peaceful disposition, gi-
ving one's self the security
needed to face people and
the multiple situations life
forces us into. Avoid living
on a "minus" sign; instead,
let each new day manifest a
"plus" life, lived not in fear
nor in defeat but from vic-
tory unto victory!

Cole Bros Circus was Amazing

By: Gabriela Heizer

We at The Boca Raton Tri-
bune, love to give young in-
spiring writers a chance to
write, and so, Gabriela Heiz-
er wrote this amazing story
on her first experience at the
circus. Gabriela Heizer is a
8th grade student from Log-
gers 'Run Middle School.
As we pulled into the par-
king lot, protesters were
surrounding the entrance.
"Free the animals!" and
"Circus is cruelty" they
yelled. I couldn't believe it.
Couldn't they see the hap-
piness the circus was bring-
ing to all the kids, parents,
and even grandpa-rents?
I was shocked to say the
After we got in it was

amazing! The smell of ex-
citement, the smell of pop-
corn, and the smell of ani-
mal dropping! All mashed
into one.
I would never forget that
smell, the smell of a circus!
With great excitement it fi-
nally started. The acts were
great! One after act after
the other, the animals all so

FAU Green Building Ribbon Cutting

SCeremony kicks off Wyland Living

Green Fair

The Florida Atlantic University's College of Engineering &
Computer Science and University Faculty & Food Service
hosted a ribbon cutting ceremony on November 5, 2010 to com-
mence the opening of its new 97,000 square foot "living learning
laboratory" anticipated to be the first academic building in the
State of Florida to be designed and built to LEED (Leadership
in Energy and Environmental Design) Platinum level standards.

Dean Karl K. Stevens, Ph.D.,
PE. opened the ceremony by
welcoming everyone and in-
troducing the building as the
first new-construction acade-
mic building in southeast Flo-
rida to be designed and built to
U.S. Green Building Council
LEED Platinum level stan-
dards the highest level in the

Jane Saunders, Ph.D. and Se-
nior VP. of Financial Affairs
and CFO Dennis J. Crudele
also addressed the audience
and Florida Senator Jeremy
Ring concluded the ceremony
with a few words about the
importance of the innovation
that FAU has brought to the
fore front of the community
through their green efforts.
The architectural firm of Gal-
lo Herbert Lebolo and FAU's
College of Engineering and
Computer Science also dedi-
cated the College's Food
Service Venue space in the
building. The inviting 8,800
square-foot food service faci-
lity was designed as a dyna-
mic and organic space inten-
ded to reflect the sustainable
and natural aspects of "Green
Design". The designer worked
with an array of sustainable
and energy efficient materials
to create a rich contrast to the
modem rendered building in
which this space resides. The
materials utilized include rich
wood finishes, modem metal
finishes, decorative glazed pa-
nels, metallic tiles and organic
stone finishes.
The ribbon cutting ceremony
also helped to kick off the

'Cane' brews up a storm at

Florida Stage

For reviews this week we
have sort of a ying and yang
of entertainment: the lofty
and noble new play "Cane"
at Florida Stage's new space
at Kravis Center and "Due
Date," a low, vulgar road trip
comedy starring the unlikely
duo of Robert Downey, Jr.
and Zack Galifianakis.
"Cane" is a play by resident
playwright Andrew Rosen-
dorf commissioned express-
ly for Florida and its Florida
cycle of plays about the Sun-
shine State.
The title has a double mean-
ing. It refers to the murderous
hurricane of 1928 that devas-
tated much of Palm Beach
County- especially in the re-
gion near Lake Okeechobee,
which overflowed its flimsy
dike and flooded the com-
munities of Belle Glade,
Pahokee and Canal Point.
The second reference is to the
cash crop of sugar cane, the
harvesting and refinement of
which is the leading business
in the area.
The play is equal parts his-
tory lesson and morality tale.
Unfortunately for theater go-
ers, there is not much in the
way of fun. Act one is set in
1928. Eddie Wilson (Gregg
Weiner) is a successful, am-
bitious bean-farmer turned-
merchant. His neighbor Noah
Brooks is in financial peril,
and Eddie is bullying him
to sell off his land at a dirt
cheap price.
Meanwhile an unnamed hur-
ricane is traveling their way.
Newspaper editor Jacob Gold
(Dan Leonard) warns there
will be Hell to pay in the
likely event the earthen dike
fails, but nobody cares to listen.

The women folk are Ed-
die's loyal wife Ruthie (Julie
Rowe), and Harriet (Trenell
Mooring), a pregnant tenant
farmer's wife.
Act One has the most ac-
tion, sound and fury as Ed-
die and Noah grapple while
thunderclaps and lightning
flashes signal the advance of
another storm. Act two for-
wards to the present day. Ed-
die's great-grandson Junior
(Weiner) is more successful
than ever and greedy for yet
more. Junior thinks there is
gold in the sugar cane fields
if he can just wrest the land
away from Harriet's descen-
dant, Zora (Mooring).
Noah's descendent Isaac (Nail)
is a local cop strongly protec-
tive of Zora. Dan Leonard's
character has devolved into a
crazy old coot spouting dire
warnings of certain destruc-
tion coming from both the
fury of Mother Nature and
the greed of venal men like
Junior Wilson.
Those of us who know a
thing or two about Florida
history will find no surpri-
ses in the script. Mankind
has been foolishly trying to
conquer rather than work in
concert with nature for over
a century. What is highly un-
likely is the prospect of su-
burbia spreading to a place
as impoverished and despe-
rate as Belle Glade.
Then again I never thought I
would see giant urban malls
at the very edge of the Ever-
glades, so what do I know?
Is Zach Galifianakis
The New "Great One?"
Could Zach Galifianakis be
a Jackie Gleason for a new

Like Gleason, Galifianakis is
a large, rotund man. He uses
his bulk to comic effect in
surprisingly delicate ways,
and he is utterly fearless to
do anything for a laugh.
Robert Downey, Jr. is the
straight man of this piece: Pe-
ter Highman, an uptight Los
Angeles entrepreneur with a
young wife Sarah (Michelle
Monaghan) expecting their
first child.
Sarah's due date is in just a
few days. All Peter has to do
is board a flight in Atlanta
non-stop to L.A. and every-
thing will be peachy.

Party on! Tips for creating a successful event

The social season has begun
and your emails and Face-
book pages are probably
filled with invites. So in the
weeks to come, we will pre-
view an array of sexy and
sophisticated styles, discuss
the fun charitable events
that are taking place, and
profile a few of the wonder-
ful people who make this
town outstanding.
Today, we are chatting with
Cary Roman, founder of
LivingFLA.com. Cary, of
course, throws some of the
best parties in town, and
helps to promote an array of
non-profits. But if you have
been reading the headlines
lately, you know that chari-
table giving is at an all-time
Charities and causes are try-
ing to stir up support, so I
asked Cary to discuss some
of the biggest problems fac-
ing fundraisers and to offer
some smart suggestions.
"There are a lot of worthy
nonprofits out there," says
Roman, whose Halloween
party at LOLA's, supported
the Shuzz Fund, an organi-
zation which provides new
shoes to poverty stricken
areas around the world.
"But there is a lot of com-
petition for supporters' time
and money."
Cary and I noticed that
even this early on in the
season there are often 4-6
events all scheduled on the
same night! Event organiz-
ers really need to look over
the social calendars (like at
LivingFLA.com/todo) to
get some idea as to what
events typically occur at
certain times, and try not to
compete with other events,
he stresses.

With budgets tighter than
ever, designing a fun event
can be a challenge. How-
ever, Cary suggests think-
ing about the overall expe-
rience and being creative.
"The experience is impor-
tant," he says. "''E\Lt do
not need to be lavish, using
some ingenuity will make

them fun. It is far better to
do a really well-received
cocktail party than a run-
of-the-mill gala."
Think out of the box, then
think out the process. Go
over the details, and always
focus on quality location,
food, drinks and value, he

And, of course, people
make a party! So think
about your guest list and
learn from expert party
planners like Cary. "RS-
VP's have been running
really last minute lately,
which is very difficult
when you are trying to de-
termine how much food to
have ready for a party."
So when you are creat-
ing your RSVP wording,
be sure to highlight cut
off dates and perhaps add
increased pricing for RS-
VPing during the last few
days prior to the event.
Thank you Cary! That was
great advice I know many
of our readers will appreci-

Justice delayed can be justice

denied, even in divorce cases

Question: I ;h ,,ghit that the
year that it took to get my
divorce case to trial was
ridiculous. My husband
and his lawyer used every
device to delay giving my
side information about his
business. He fought me
tooth and nail over cus-
tody of our children whom
he hardly seemed to notice
when we were ;i ,h i. r
Forensic accountants were
hired. Psychologists were
hired. A vocational expert
was hired to prove I could
earn more money than I
earned at a job I had for
years. Hundreds of thou-
sands of dollars spent. The
trial took two weeks. I did
not know that the night-
mare was not over when
the trial ended.
Thirteen months of- ,,imn
ended yesterday when the
judgefinally issued her rul-
ing. It seemed she had not
been at the same trial that
I attended. Her 25-page
opinion confused positions
Ihad taken at the trial with
those of my husband. She
attributed testimony to me,
which never passed my
lips, and made similar mis-
takes with the testimony of
other witnesses.
Most of her errors were
made in such a way as to

hurt my case, and most of
her rulings were against
me, ,lhhi,,ghi. on some is-
sues they were harmful to
the other side. It was just
a mess.
Her rulings on the law
seemed different from the
law as explained to me by
my attorney. He is a single
practitioner and just went
out of town for two weeks.
What should I do? Can I
get the judgment changed?
Should I take an appeal?



you have two chances to
change the judgment. The
first opportunity, filing a
motion for a re-hearing,
may have already expired.
That motion must be filed
within 10 days of the date
of the final judgment. It
should raise the length of
time that the judge took,
plus the inconsistencies,
confusion and deficiencies
of the judgment. If your
lawyer is not available,
and the time has not run
out, find another lawyer
If your motion is filed
within the 10 days, it can
be amended after the 10
days, when your lawyer re-
turns. If that deadline has
passed, you can appeal the

judgment, as long as your
notice of appeal is filed
within 30 days of the date
of the final judgment.
The length of time that the
judge took to rule is not, by
itself, a basis to set aside
the judgment. However,
delay is a factor an appel-
late court will consider.
You will have to buy a
transcript of the proceed-
ings, expensive in a two-
week trial. Your counsel
will have to convince the
trial judge or appellate
court that the judgment
contained inconsistencies,
deficiencies, and confu-
sion sufficient to prove
that the delay clouded or
confused the judge and
that the ruling should be
re-considered, based upon
a new trial or further re-
view of the trial transcript.
Since the judge's mistaken
rulings cut both against
you and your husband it
might be possible for both
sides to agree that the rul-
ings were inconsistent and
confused and cooperate
on the motion or appeal.
If your husband's counsel
has already filed a motion
for re-hearing your lawyer
may still have time to file
one of your own.

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

To be human is to be in

As humans we experience
relational problems, financial
problems, family problems,
health problems, emotional
problems, employment pro-
blems, parenting problems,
and civil problems...just to
mention a few! Job, the old-
est book in the Bible and
the personification of pain
wrote, "Man that is born of
a woman is of few days, and
full of trouble" (Job 14.1).
If you take the time to read
the first chapter of his book,
you discover that in just a
few verses his whole life
changed. He went from ha-
ving a lot to having nothing.
He went from being respect-
ed to being reviled. He went
from admiration to accusa-
tion by friends of a great and
terrible sin against God.
In my 59 years on this planet,
I have yet to meet an individu-
al who is not having problems;
coming out of a problem or
headed into one. The ques-
tion is, "How am I going to
deal with them?"

Too many people try to
escape their problems.
1)Some try to deal with their
pain by dulling their senses.
They choose alcohol, drugs
or almost anything that will
kill the pain and transport
them from reality, even if
its for only a few hours. Not
only is this costly and des-
tructive but it is futile.
2) Others divert their pain
by replacing it with endless,
mindless activity. They im-

merse themselves in their
work, a hobby, a passion in
hopes that the pains and sor-
rows of reality will somehow
dissolve. Unfortunately, we
all eventually learn, in the
real world, problems don't
just disappear.
3) Still others try to escape
the real world by creating
a fantasy world. Via the in-
ternet or television or even
some book, they take on a
new persona, reinvent them-
selves and manufacture anew
world with new rules and
laws. A world where actions
have no real consequences
and everyone lives happily
ever after. Rather than thin-
king about or concentrating
on their own problems, they
find relief by filling their
mind with the fantasy of o-
ther peoples lives.

Don't run from your trou-
bles, deal with them.
Here are three simple prin-
ciples that will help during
times of troubles.
Principle #1 If possible,
determine the cause of your
Until we first determine the
reason for our trouble, we
cannot successfully deal with
it. Until we know the reason
for it, we cannot respond to
it appropriately. There are
troubles we bring on our-
selves; there are troubles
others cause and then there
are things that just "happen"
because we are here.
Principle #2- "( lhage 'iihat
you can, accept what you
There's a sign hanging in a

hospital that says, "Be kind.
For everyone you meet is
fighting a battle." Troubles
that we bring on ourselves
are usually the hardest to
bear because we know that
our own ignorance, or will-
fulness or stubbornness has
caused it. Troubles that oth-
ers cause are the hardest to
handle because others initi-
ate them. Troubles that God
allows are the hardest to un-
derstand because we don't
understand God's purpose in
them for us at the time.
Principle #3 Determine the
best response to the trouble.
If we don't respond appro-
priately, the trouble will de-
feat us. It must be addressed
but in a constructive way.
Troubles are usually only
temporary, but our lack of re-
sponding to them could have
permanent effects. "Two frogs
fell into a can of cream or so
I've heard it told. The sides
of the can were shiny and
steep, the cream was deep
and cold. "Oh, what's the
use?" said No. 1, "tis fate-
no help's around- Good-bye,
my friend! Good-bye, sad
world!" and weeping still,
he drowned. But No. 2 of
sterner stuff, dog-paddled
in surprise, The while he
wiped his creamy face and
dried his creamy eyes. "I'll
swim awhile, at least," he
said- or so it has been said-
"It wouldn't really help the
world if one more frog was
dead." An hour or two he
kicked and swam- not once
he stopped to mutter, But
kicked and swam, and swam
and kicked, then hopped out,
via butter." Author unknown

their condolences on the
death of my son Larry in
Orlando. He was 45 years
old and died in his sleep of
a heart condition. He had
so many friends and never
met a stranger. Everyone in-
stantly gravitated to him by
his outgoing personality. He
founded and was the presi-
dent of the Central Florida
Cleveland Browns Fan Club
and built it up to thousands
of members, all gathering
together on a Sunday after-
noon to watch the Browns
play. He was a graduate of
the University of Miami
and loved both teams. I like
to think that both their wins
last Sunday was somewhat
due to Larry looking down
on his beloved Browns and
Canes. Over 200 of you were
at my house Sunday and I
sincerely appreciated those
who took the time to console
me and my family. A number
of people have asked about
a memorial and donations
can be sent to the University
of Miami Heart Project at
Jackson Memorial Hospital.
Keep those you love close
and let them know every day
how you feel. Life is short,
but no parent should have to
bury a child. For those who
share in my grief, I know
how you feel. Hopefully no
one else should ever have to
know those emotions. Thank
you all.

Public opinion determines

winners and losers

In America, we have the free-
dom of making our own de-
cisions about what food we
buy, what automobiles we
drive, which political can-
didates we select and other
day-to-day decisions. These
choices are often determined
by public opinion.
Consumer purchasing de-
cisions are also guided by
what the consumer thinks
they need or want. Political
choices, too, are based on
our needs and wants. Public
opinion of what is and isn't
popular is a driving force in
shaping our decisions.
The media, social media, and
the Internet play a major fac-
tor in influencing us. Society
and these communication
entities constantly work off
each other through complex
information sharing designed
to change public opinion.
Understanding how public
opinion is shaped is impor-
tant if you are looking to
influence public opinion and
create positive recognition.
The effects of public opin-
ion can determine the suc-
cess or failure of a particular
situation. Analyzing the fac-
tors that shape public opin-
ion and exploring the ways
to improve it, can work to
change the public image of
the product, service and even
influence a political decision.
The ability to comprehend
what comprises communica-
tion's role and a definition of

the various types and catego-
ries of media is essential if
you are to get your message
Hadley Cantril was a prolific
1940s sociologist and pub-
lic opinion researcher. His
research and writing, which
identified numerous key
laws about public opinion
and what shapes it, have sig-
nificant relevance to public
In his 1951 book, "Public
Opinion," which he co-ed-
ited with Mildred Strunk,
Cantril states that public
opinion is influenced by ac-
tions and events rather than
by words. It is thus highly
sensitive to important pub-
lic events, such as changes
in politics and economics,
shifts in social values and
customs, or occurrences-
good or bad-that affect the
public at large.
These events can take place
overnight, or stretch over
a period of years. Whereas
events of sudden and un-
usual magnitude can make
public opinion swing from
one extreme to another tem-
porarily, changes in public
opinion take time to cement;
public opinion requires time
to stabilize, during which the
public has the chance to di-
gest the event and evaluate it
with a deeper perspective.
According to Cantril, public
opinion does not anticipate
or plan for crises and emer-

gencies-it merely reacts to
them after the fact (Cantril
& Strunk, 1951).
At the center of Cantril's
theory is the assumption that
the core of public opinion
is based on individual self-
interest. Events, actions, or
other stimuli are important
to the public to the degree
that they affect the interests
of the individual or group;
an event must concern the
self-interest of the individu-
als to evoke an opinion. In
other words, people in gen-
eral do not care about events
or actions that do not have
implications on their per-
sonal lives.
Public opinion, therefore,
does not arouse people un-
less they feel their self-in-
terest is at stake; people will
lose interest in the event or
issue after some time unless
they are reminded about its
effects on their self-interest.
Initiatives aimed at shaping
public opinion, then, should
include elements that dem-
onstrate to the public how
these initiatives affect their
lives as well as elements
that create a sense of timely
relevance (Fashion Public
Relations, Sherman & Perl-
man, 2010).
Once again, understanding
the moods and behaviors
of others, empathy, has tri-
umphed in the political en-
vironment as it will in our
everyday lives.

Bobcats Win and bring Park

Vista's Playoff Hope to an End
Photos andArticle By:
Jon Ricco

On Friday night the Boca
Raton Bobcats traveled to
play the Park Vista Cobras
and defeated them 32-21.
In the process, they de-
flated Park Vista's playoff
hopes. Behind running
back Keith Byars' 149
yards and 2 touchdowns
and Cameron Lewis fill-
ing in as quarterback the
Bobcats were able to come
back late in the fourth
quarter. The Cobras had
a 21-20 lead with 6:20 to
play, but Boca was able to
score two late touchdowns
in order to conceal the win.
Generally a receiver, Cam-
eron Lewis played quar-
terback in place for Kevin
Anderson (illness) and
lead the Bobcats to the win
while going 11-17 with
173 yards passing and a
touchdown. He also had 62
yards on 12 carries. Boca
improves to (3-5) as they
finish their season at home
against Boynton Beach
High on Friday.

Well, who actually did
invent the game of golf?
The question has been
asked and argued for many
years with no true win-
ner. Many countries have
a valid claim to an early
game that resembles the
game of golf. Some of the
countries that make this
claim are England. Scot-
land, China, Rome, France,
The Netherlands, Belgium
and Laos. The most heated
debate over who invented
golf definitely comes from
Great Britain and Scotland.
The first area to look when
deciding the answer to our
question must be what ac-
tually determines when a
game with sticks and balls
is golf or another game.
Most countries in the world
have had games where you
hit an object with a stick at
some sort of target. Is this
enough to be called golf?
I don't think so. If so, then
these early games could
claim the origin of many
sports played today. I think
it takes more than just a
game with some kind of
object being hit by a stick

to qualify as the origin of
Holland is believed to
be the origin of the name
of golf but not the ac-
tual game itself. Holland
played a game in the 1200s
called Colf, which means
clubs. This was a form of
golf but once again the
form of many other sports.
Colf has been traced back
to Dec. 26, 1297, in the
town of Loenen aan de
Vecht in northern Hol-
land. On that day, the lo-
cal townsfolk played four
holes of the game to com-
memorate the relieving of
the Kronenburg Castle ex-
actly one year before. The
fact that Colf was chosen
to mark the occasion is
proof that the game was al-
ready popular by that time.
In Great Britain the earli-
est traces of golf history
are said to date back to
1340, where in a sketch
from a stained glass win-
dow, the Great East Win-
dow, in the east wing of
the Gloucester Cathedral,
England, scenes of the
Battle of Crecy in France
showed a man apparently
preparing to strike a ball in

a golf-like manner.
The early forms of golf
were all missing one im-
portant ingredient to their
games to truly make the
game golf and that was the
hole. Scotland is widely
believed to be the first
country to put all the in-
gredients together and
actually start a primitive
form of the great game of
Yes, this will always be a
disputed point, who actu-
ally invented the game of
golf. If you believe some
of the claims that the game
they were playing was
golf and they didn't have
a hole, then you could
take this same game and
turn it into the origin of
many games we still play
today. I believe the hole is
what separates all the early
claims to who originated
the game of golf.

section at the World of
Golf Handicap for more
detailed information on

Playing mini golf is notjust
for children. It is a game
that can also be played by
grownups. All the person
needs to play is a golf club
and a ball.
People who have never
played the real game will
easily get the hang of it by
just watching how others
swing and putt the ball into
the hole.
Here are some tips when

1. One should read the
rules and regulations post-
ed outside before playing
the game. There are certain
rules, which are implemen-
ted for the safety of the
players and other people
who frequent that place.
2. There is a certain dress
code when playing this
game. It is advisable to
wear some lose clothing
which will make you feel
relaxed and a cap if the
weather is hot.
3. Whenever someone is
taking a shot, one should
not create any sounds or
disrupt the player as a sign
of courtesy to that person.
4. Just like in real golf, peo-
ple take turns when playing
at one hole. Should that
person do well at a certain
hole, that person has the
right to tee off again at the
next hole.
5. After one has putted, it
is best to retrieve the ball
away from where the next
person will putt since this
is considered polite to the
other player.
6. Lastly, play the game
Playing miniature golf with
friends or family is just one
of the many forms of re-
laxation people can enjoy
these days. It is a time for
bonding and a great escape


from the pressures of the
city. If one wants to get se-
rious in this game, one can
practice more often and
join some miniature golf
competitions and even win
a prize. Such facilities can
be found on the web or by
checking the local direc-
Miniature golf facilities are
also accessible to for people
with disabilities. The law
requires such places to
make at least half the num-
ber of holes accessible to

these individuals. Failure
to do so will require the
owners of the establish-
ment to redesign the layout
in compliance with the re-
This activity is very afford-
able and it doesn't really
matter if one wins or loses.
It is all about having fun
which everyone can enjoy
even if one is young or old,
able or disabled.

crimes are misdemeanors
compared to the costly dis-
information campaign run
by the Florida Marlins, who
sold the public on the des-
perate need for a new stadi-
um in South Florida while
misleading voters about the
franchise's profitability.
If those same governmental
grandstanders who turned
baseball's steroid hear-
ings into a circus of sleaze
are also interested in serv-
ing the greater good, they
should summon Marlins"
owner Jeffrey Loria and
ask him to account for his
accounting. They should
ask him to explain how a
club that purported to be
operating as a "break-even"
proposition turned a $37.8
million profit in 2008. They
should consider the ques-
tion of whether the citizens
and their elected represen-
tatives were defrauded in
the campaign to "save base-
ball in South Florida."
They should consider, too,
whether the American gov-
ernment has a role in pro-
tecting cities from getting
fleeced by sports franchises.
Sensitive financial docu-
ments leaked to Deadspin.
com suggest a significant
disparity between what
some baseball clubs claim

their ledgers to public in-
spection, no more than any
private citizen is obligated
to post his tax returns on
Facebook. Yet sports ex-
ecutives who mislead the
public about franchise fi-
nances in order to influ-
ence a stadium vote should
assume some of the same
risks Roger Clemens did
in voluntarily testifying on
Capitol Hill. They ought to
be held somewhat account-
able for what they say, par-
ticularly when what they
say helps persuade public
officials to build a retract-
able-roof ballpark in Mi-
ami that will cost taxpayers
$2.4 billion over 40 years.
"(The idea) is horrible,
and the financing is even
worse,"Miami-Dade Coun-
ty Commissioner Carlos
Gimenez told the Miami
Herald. "And now you see
they took us for a ride."
It's hard to study the Mar-
lins' misrepresentations
and not believe that the
public has been bilked.
It's harder to reconcile the
Marlins' public statements
with their profits, even now
that the numbers have been
leaked. Confronted by his
longstanding claim that
the Marlins' player payroll
would reflect its revenues,

Samson's new spin is that
the team was saving its
surplus to finance its por-
tion of the new stadium -- a
claim he neglected to make
before the Deadspin disclo-
sures. And though that may
indeed have been the plan,
local officials suspect they
could have cut a better deal
with more accurate infor-
As any experienced nego-
tiator understands, there's a
certain amount of misdirec-
tion in any major negotia-
tion. Still, there's a big dif-
ference between spin and
subterfuge. You may have
noticed that while the San
Diego Chargers have made
many optimistic assertions
about the benefits of a new
stadium, they have avoided
the dubious claim that they
are losing money while
they wait for one. They
know better, and they know
that we know better.
Forbes magazine's an-
nual assessment of NFL
franchise values, released
Wednesday, estimates that
Team Spanos made a $24.7
million operating profit in

What Happened to

"Super Mario'?






H w did Mario
Chalmers move
from the starting
point guard for the begin-
ning of the last two sea-
sons to the scrub minutes
of blowout games?
Mario Chalmers' minutes
have been more than cut
in half they have disap-
peared. Carlos Arroyo won
the starting job last year,
as Mario became the pri-
mary back-up point guard.
But after all the turnover
from this past off-season,
Chalmers has disappeared
from the rotation. Now,
part of this could be due
to his off-season injury
that sidelined him for two
"Initially, coming into
training camp, if he was
healthy, I fully expected

him to compete for the
starting job," coach Spoel-
stra said. "It didn't work
out that way, but it's a
long season and he's get-
ting healthy. He'll get his
chance. He just has to be
ready when it happens."
So Mario lost the starting
job. Carlos does bring an
element to the game that
Mario hasn't shown. De-
spite his poor performance
in the opener, Arroyo has
shown why he fits in with
the first unit. He is able to
run a great pick and pop.
He is able to smoothly hit
the mid range shot when
the defender goes under
the screen. He is a great
passer, and he doesn't have
to shoot to be effective.
He isn't the best defender,
but you can't have it all in

a role player.
So Arroyo gets the nod,
but where did the back-
ups minutes go? "I'm
only playing one point
guard now," Spoelstra said.
"And that is Carlos. And
I'm divvying up the rest of
the minutes between LeB-
ron and Dwyane with our
With the addition of Ed-
die House, back-up point
guard minutes are not ne-
cessary. House can guard a
point guard pretty well, but
he doesn't have to bring
up the ball with Wade
and James able to handle.
House is a superb three
point shooter compared to
Chalmers, and even Ar-
royo, so it makes sense he
gets the minutes.
But it may seem a sur-

prise that Chalmers gets
the boot. The guy who at
one point this off-season
was the only player on
the roster. He has a mini-
mal contract, less than
a million this year, but
Miami fans had a lot of
promise for Chalmers.
Some thought he could be
like Rondo with all these
weapons around him, but
for whatever reason he
has not blossomed enough
for coach to give him the
opportunity with the first
Chalmers is still very ser-
viceable as a part of this
team. If Arroyo were to
go down with an injury,
expect Chalmers to get the
call, maybe even the start.
