Safety tip from

Boca Raton Police

Boca police safety tip
Q: A man came to my house and offered to sell me alu-
minum hurricane shutters for all of my doors and win-
dows. He took a $500 cash down payment but never
returned. The card he gave me has a disconnected phone
number. What can I do?
A: First, file a police report. Second, if you are over
55, contact the local "Seniors vs. Crime" office. They
are sponsored by the Florida Attorney General and have
helped many seniors. Their phone number is 561-395-
8920. Lastly, never hire a soliciting contractor, check
references with the Better Business Bureau, get two es-
timates from licensed providers, and never make down
payments with cash.
Crime and safety questions are answered by officers
from the Boca Raton Police Crime Prevention Unit. For

Boca City Council nixes annexation, citing decreased revenue, legislative uncertainty

By Dale M. King

Raton City Council has
shelved, at least for the time
being, the idea of annexing
property from the western
suburbs into the city limits.
Council members and city
officials had been eying
three areas which, together
and individually, generate
more income than expens-
es, according to a report
prepared by consultants
PMG Associates.
Phil Gonot of PMG met
recently with council mem-
bers to deliver some unset-
tling news about the parcels
that Boca wanted to Velcro
to the existing city borders.

Gonot said more recent
studies of revenue and
expenses show that the
amount of money the city
would get if it annexed all
nine of the parcels under
consideration has dropped
because of a decrease in
land values. Most recent
figures show the city would
get $2,678,311 in net rev-
enue, a drop from what had
been figured earlier.
The three areas under an-
nexation scrutiny are Boca
Grove, to the west near
Florida's Turnpike; Boca
Country Club and the
Costco land in north central
Boca and six communities
in the northwest St. An-
drews, Newport Bay, Field-

brook, Boniello Acres,
Polo Fields and Le Lac.
Annexation is the process
of bringing county land into
Boca city limits. Normally,
it yields additional revenue
because providing services
to largely residential areas
is less expensive than the
amount of taxes generated.
Also, many Boca city ser-
vices are not as costly as
county utilities.
In addition to the worries
about revenue, said Gonot,
"if more than 70 percent of
the land in a proposed an-
nexation area is not owned
by registered electors in the
area, the area may not be
annexed unless the owners

of more than 50 percent of
the land in the area consent
to annexation prior to the
required referendum on
the annexation." This state
regulation applies to some
areas of possible annexa-
tion and not others.
Sewer and water service
in the area is also a mat-
ter of concern, said coun-
cil members. "Water and
sewer services are provided
by Palm Beach County
in all the areas to be an-
nexed, with the exception
of Mediterrania, which is
on city of Boca Raton wa-
ter and sewer, and Le Lac,
which is on well and septic
service." He said state law
requires that before annex-
ation, the community state
how it intends to deliver
water and sewer. The city's
stand thus far has been to

hope the county continues
to provide the service, but
"we have not had any dis-
cussions with the county
regarding the provision of
water and sewer to ensure
the city is in compliance
with the statute if we annex
any areas currently served
by Palm Beach County
utilities," said Gonot.
Getting back to the finan-
cial end, the consultant
said "the taxable value of
real estate has declined
about 13 percent since the
original annexation analy-
sis was completed, and
no sensitivity analysis has
been performed to address
potential future decreases
in valuation and their effect
on net revenues to the city."
In addition, he said, "If the
Florida Legislature impos-
es further limitations on or

reductions in ad valorem
revenues, similar to 2008,
future net revenues to the
city from the annexation
areas would be uncertain."
He also said that revenue
estimates are based on
bringing all nine areas into
the city. If certain areas are
annexed individually, "net
revenues from those areas
might be significantly im-
pacted. If, he said, Boca
annexed only St. Andrews
Country Club, the cost of
additional fire/rescue ser-
vice would reduce net rev-
enues from $1.4 million to
about $316,000.
Not all council members are
sold on the idea of annexa-
tion. In a discussion earlier
this year, Deputy Mayor
Susan Haynie said she fa-
vored the continued study,
but "that doesn't necessar-

ily mean I will support an-
nexation." Councilwoman
Constance Scott expressed
concerns, as Haynie also
did, about the fact that Le
Lac has wells and septic
tanks utilities the city has
been trying to eliminate for

And Councilman Anthony
Majhess, citing the "dra-
matic change" it would
cause in the community,
said, "I don't support it
[annexation] as a means of
raising money."
City Manager Leif Ahnell
said the proposal to annex

land at this time was the re-
sult of inquires from St. An-
drew's Country Club and
Boca Grove. Also, Mayor
Susan Whelchel has cited
the need to consider ways
of pumping up revenue in
light of the tight economy
and budget restrictions.

Morris Katz
Katz was born in Poland in
the spring of 1932, moving
to Manhattan with his fam-
ily, where he became a car-
penter in 1949. A famously
prolific and successful artist
for almost sixty years, Katz
had been showing his work
and participating in events
with his close friend Yaacov
Heller at Gallery 22 in Boca
Raton before becoming ill.
Widely known for creating
a revolutionary brand of
quick-art using toilet paper
and a palette knife, Katz
coined his own radical ar-
tistic philosophy: "Paint it
good, paint it fast, and sell
it cheap." This fascina-ting
new technique drew a great
deal of media attention,
earning Katz television in-
terviews with the likes of
Oprah Winfrey, Regis Phil-
bin, and David Letterman -
not to mention the 600 other
television appearances, of

which Katz would often
proudly boast.
Katz, whose work has been
displayed in galleries and
museums across the globe
for decades, was also the
winner of two Guiness
world records: "the fastest
painter in the world" and
"the most prolific," surpass-
ing Picasso in 1994. Katz
once finished a painting,
which he called "a child in
the snow," in 38 seconds

Driver of Bentley killed in traffic crash

from the Boca Raton Po-

Traffic Homicide Unit in-
vestigated a fatal motor
vehicle crash shortly after
midnight Nov. 11 at 5400
North Federal Highway.
Public Information Officer
Sandra Boonenberg identi-
fied the deceased driver as
Charles West, 83, of Boca
Raton. The Bentley he
was driving collided with
a Mack truck operated by
Mario G. Guzman, 59, of
Miami Gardens, the said.

She said West, the driver
of the 2006 Bentley, was
traveling north on Federal
Highway and lost control
of the vehicle as it entered
the construction area in
the 4700 block of Fed-
eral Highway. The vehicle
continued north on Federal
Highway passing Yamato
Road where it struck the
rear of a construction ve-
hicle. The construction
vehicle, a Mack dump
truck, was stopped within
the blocked-off inside
lane. The collision caused

the Bentley to veer to the
east, where it came to rest.
The construction vehicle
stopped within the inside
lane and grass median.
Boonenberg said West was
pronounced dead on the
scene by Boca Raton Fire
Rescue. The driver of the
construction vehicle was
not injured.
Investigators are asking
anyone who may have wit-
nessed the crash to contact
Traffic Homicide Inves-
tigator Chris Somers at
(561) 620-6141.

A residents' guide to living in South

Florida, part 1

I remember the day I be-
came a permanent resident
of Florida. I stepped off the
plane at PBIA and headed
for the rental car lot. A
shuttle driver yelled to me,
"Welcome to Florida."
That's was just 10years ago.
And I think I've learned a
few things about this state
that should be passed on to
newcomers so they won't
have to go through the so-
metimes troubling process
of learning them.
I'll deal with one major is-
sue here, and, someday, I
may tackle others.

groups have no counter-
part up north. When I was
growing up in New Eng-
land, no one told me when
to paint the house, what
color to paint it, when my
sidewalk was dirty, when I
was playing music too loud
and other demands even
more ludicrous.
This is the job of associa-
tions. And we pay them
money for it, too!
In all fairness (I suppose),
they do keep the grounds
looking nice. Some asso-
ciations do more for you

than others. And some are
specifically for those age
55 and older.
You may recall an earlier
editorial in which I told
how I was banned from
going into an age 55-plus
complex because I had my
dog in the car. I'm over
55, but must the dog also
be? (And is that 55 in dog
Associations are like little
kingdoms, with Shrek-like
rulers sitting on the boards.
I've tried to speak at meet-
ings and been told to sit
down because I'm "not on
the agenda." So much for
free speech.
Every now and then, we
receive a "violation notice"
from the board. These are
some I have actually re-
ceived and I'm notjoking:
Power wash your driveway,
you have been leaving your
trash cans out too long, pick
up after your dog and get

What's worse, if you don't
comply, you get whacked
with a $100 a day fine! You
can probably go around
smoking dope and get off
with a smaller financial
There's something else that

usually comes with asso-
ciations, and that's GATES.
Yes, many of us live in gat-
ed communities.
Now, that would be fine if
the gates actually improved
the safety of the commu-
nity. They don't. And that,
I think, is because nobody
respects them.
Over the years, I have seen
a Chevy Suburban go up
onto the sidewalk to by-
pass the gate. I have seen
motorcycles go around the
gate, ditto for bicyclists and
pedestrians. And the secu-
rity guards seem incapable
of doing anything but stand
and look.
When I'm walking my dog
inside my development, I
see a plethora of vehicles
that obviously don't be-
long to residents. Saturday
is rubbish collection day,
and in come a bunch of old
trucks driven by trash pick-
ing people. I don't really
mind after all, I was a big
fan of the TV show, San-
ford and Son.
One recent night, my dog
and I were approached by
a man in a smelly, old, bro-
ken-down car who said he
was "looking for my wife
and kids." He asked me if

they might live in the house
directly behind me because
they had just moved in. I
told him I lived at the oth-
er end of the complex and
didn't know the occupants

Holiday time is truly the season of


Generosity happens all
year round. But during
the holiday season, the
thought of sharing what
we have with those who
struggle all year to survive
is much stronger.
And lately, a lot more peo-
ple have been struggling
to keep their heads above
water than have done so in
many past years.
Boca Raton has always
been a giving community
- even when things were
difficult. And we know
that as Thanksgiving, Ha-
nukkah and Christmas
approach, that spirit will
come alive again.

Carousel Day
One event that is very dear
to our hearts at the Boca
Raton Tribune is the annu-
al Carousel Day at Sugar
Sand Park.
This year, the event will
be held Sunday, Dec. 12
from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at
the carousel in Sugar Sand
Park at 300 South Military
This event began as a
showing of gratitude by the
Greater Boca Raton Beach
& Park District to the four
Rotary Clubs that raised
a portion of the money to
help the city pay for the
carousel, which opened in

November 2005.
(I'm sure you all know
that I have a special place
in my heart for Rotary, for
the local clubs and for Ro-
tary International, which is
one of the hardest working
organizations I have ever
been connected with. And
it doesn't take a holiday to
bring out the generosity of
the clubs here and around
the world.)
Anyway, Carousel Day
gives the Rotary Club
Sunset and the West Boca
Rotary a chance to open
up the carousel to the com-
munity for free rides, hot
dogs and hamburgers. It's
an enjoyable family day.
What's really important is
the request that all visitors
bring an unwrapped toy
that will be given to chil-
dren served by the Wayne
Barton Study Center and
those who get their meals
from Boca Helping Hands.
This is a very important
and giving activity, and we
hope everyone comes by
to enjoy the carousel and
give something of them-
selves to a good cause.

Decoration contest
Don't forget, the Boca
Raton Tribune is sponsor-
ing a Holiday Decorations

Contest open to everyone
in Boca and West Raton.
There will be a small fee
to participate (to benefit
the Rotary Club Founda-
tion) and prizes will be
presented in four separate
"Most Popular Decora-
tions" (as determined by
an online public vote)
"Best Themed Decora-
"Best Apartment or Con-
dominium Decorations"
"Best in Boca" (the grand
prize winner)
We are also looking for
local sponsors to provide
prizes and/or funding to
help make this event the
best it can be.
There will be intense cov-
erage of this contest and
its sponsors in both the
online and print editions of
the paper. The contest will
also be the front page fea-
ture in our special Holiday
Edition paper following
the contest's conclusion.

Looking For Bright Tomorrows

Few are those who desire
gloomy, dark places in
which to live and work.
For those who so prefer, a
reason may be the nature
of their assigned labor, or
the mental and emotional
estate which governs their
Most people can accept
periods of darkness when
they know that light and
brightness shall re-emerge.
The motto of the city of
Geneva, in Switzerland,
is expressed in the Latin
phrase "Post Tenebras,
Lux" which means "After
Darkness, Light"!
In daily living every per-
son experiences night fol-
lowed by day; one is char-
acterized by darkness and
the other, by light. In the
north pole such experience
is extended annually in
that people residing there
face a long stretch of night
darkness only, after which
several months bring ex-
tended hours of brightness
Personal circumstances in
the life of each individual
can also result in periods
of dark, gloomy situations
one has to face, just as they
may also reflect the bright-

ness most persons desire.
As we often have to pass
through dark locations be-
fore reaching well-lit path-
ways, we develop courage
and enthusiasm to face
whatever dark clouds may
affect any of our days or
Life dispenses much that
is good, even exhilarating.
But it also brings difficult
moments, characterized
by heavy and somber ex-
periences that one must
confront, as a thick cloud
hangs over us for much
longer than one desires.
On that account, we should
never wait until dark-
ness disappears before we
act. It's like what happens
when electricity fails: we
s.\ iftll proceed to do what
we must so as to restore
all the benefits it brings.
Failure to act promptly in
any difficulty will simply
prolong the misery which
that situation may force us
Anticipating bright tomor-
rows is not a passive pos-
ture; it entails doing our
part to bring that about,
in dependence on every
available guidelines and
resources. It requires di-

rect involvement associ-
ated with what is being
sought, since "poorly-di-
rected efforts can rob us of
vital energy" as someone
wisely recorded.
It also demands personal,
studious reflection, consul-
tation with others, prompt
action when called for, and
diligent search for wisdom
and discernment. Looking
for bright tomorrows is not
seeking something which
has been lost; it simply
means an attitude of expec-
tancy of what is not merely
desirable, but also fully
possible and attainable.
It's a natural consequence
of the positive steps taken
to bring that about.
Any path toward a bright
tomorrow is not devoid of
detours, stumbling stones,
and other possible obs-
tacles. Yet, it still leads
you to where you need to
go and what you desire to
find. The tunnels may be
long, the clouds may hang
on indefinitely, the nights
are also inevitable. But
through persistence and
consistency you will reach
your bright tomorrows
where to enjoy additional,
unexpected favors!

Civil Air Patrol cadets take part in West

Boca Veterans Day ceremonies

from the Civil Air Patrol,
the official auxiliary of the
U.S. Air Force, participated
in Veterans Day ceremo-
nies Nov. 11 that paid trib-
ute to America's veterans
and armed forces.
At Veterans Memorial
Park in West Boca Raton,
cadets from the Boca Ra-
ton Composite Squadron
proudly carried the colors
along side the Veterans of
Foreign Wars and the Gold
Coast Women in the mili-
tary. "We are so pleased
that these kids made the
effort and got special per-
mission to take the mor-
ning off from school," said
Ralph Shear of the Veterans


Coalition of South Florida.
Guest Speaker, 12-year-
old Cadet Airman Basic
Hudson Rickard, moved
the audience of about 300
when he told them what
patriotism meant to him.
In his closing remarks he
said, "I love my country
and all that it stands for. I
am a patriot; you are pa-
triot; and together we make
our country strong. Maybe
the next time Americans
hear the song, 'God Bless
America,' they will realize
what a wonderful place we
live in."
Cadet Chief Master Ser-
geant Judah Brown re-
turned from college to help
train the squadron's Color

Guard. He told the teenag-
ers, "By honoring Amer-
ica's veterans we demon-
strate that we respect and
value American democra-
cy. Before you go to sleep
tonight, find a veteran, go
up to them and thank him
or her for what they have
done to protect your free-
dom and this great country
of ours."

Take Stock in Children gets $1 M from Helios

Education Foundation

Sake Stock in
Children, a state-
wide non-profit
with a 15-year history of
working to help low-inco-
me and at-risk teenagers
break the cycle of poverty
by providing scholarships,
mentors and hope for chil-
dren, has received a $1
million donation from the
Helios Education Founda-
tion at a special event at-
tended by more than 300
Florida business and com-
munity leaders.
"Helios Education Foun-
dation's community inves-
tments are driven by the
goal of getting students
prepared to succeed in post-
secondary education," said
Foundation President and
CEO Paul Luna. "Take
Stock in Children has a
similar mission and that's
why we're so pleased to
invest $1 million in sup-
port of their efforts to help
students advance success-
fully from middle school
through postsecondary. We
commend Take Stock for
their undying commitment
to students, and for achiev-
ing national recognition
through the i3 program."
This $1 million donation
satisfies the requirement
of a recently announced
federal grant from the U.S.
Department of Education
awarded to Take Stock in
Children, which called for
a 20 percent private sector
match in order to receive
the award.
Take Stock in Children will
use these funds for high
school mentoring, enhance-
ments to its web-based data
collection system, online

college readiness tools, en-
rollment training modules
in English, Spanish and
Creole and for online vir-
tual college tours featuring
major Florida colleges and
With the federal and priva-
te grant funds, Take Stock
in Children plans to launch
its FLIGHT program (Fa-
cilitating Long-Term Im-
provements in Graduation
and Higher Education for
Tomorrow). FLIGHT is
designed to improve aca-
demic and behavioral stu-
dent outcomes, increase
post-secondary matricula-
tion and reduce college
remediation. The program
also aims to enhance uti-
lization of student data
to identify high-need stu-
dents and implement time-
ly interventions to increase
their academic success.

"This investment will fur-
ther demonstrate Take
Stock in Children's unpar-
alleled success in graduat-
ing youth from high school
and continuing their post-
secondary education,"
says Richard Berkowitz,
State Board Chair of Take
Stock in Children. "We ap-
plaud the Helios Education
Foundation for making it
possible for us to expand
our new enhanced pro-
gram model to serve Take
Stock in Children students
beyond high school and
throughout their first 18
months of college."
Take Stock in Children is
an innovative organiza-
tion with a proven track
record of helping to close
the achievement gap and
increase high school grad-
uation, as well as college
enrollment rates. The or-


ganization continues to re-
port an unparalleled high
school graduation rate of
92 percent, with 81 percent
enrolling in college. Those
numbers are 61 percent
higher and 189 percent
higher (respectively) than
the Florida state averages
for at-risk students.
The organization serves
nearly 8,000 low-income
and minority students
in grades 6-12 annually
throughout 60 counties in

Royal Palm Place Smooth

Jazz Concert Series

"Royal Palm Place Smooth
Jazz Concert Series"
kicked off last Saturday
with stellar performances
by Urban Gypsy and head-
liner Marc Antoine. It was
an electrifying evening,
not likely to be forgotten
by the crowd of over 450
Nuevo Flamenco/Latin-
Smooth Jazz trio, blend-
ing Acoustic Guitar, Sax-
ophone, and Flute with
exotic and urban grooves.
Marc Antoine's career
boasts many # 1 hits on the
contemporary jazz charts,
as well as topping the Bill-
board charts. At the Amer-
ican Smooth Jazz Awards,
Marc was named the 2010
"International Artist of the
Urban Gypsy opened the
show, then Marc Antoine

performed several solo
songs, inviting Urban
Gypsy to come back on-
stage and "jam" with him
afterwards. That's when
the sparks started flying.
The passion they exhibited
brought the crowd to thun-
derous applause time and
time again.
This concert series is the
brainchild of Jacqui Wy-
att, Director of Market-
ing for Investments Lim-
ited, and Ken Levinson,
Founder of Smooth Jazz
Spot. Responsible for the
talent lineup is Steve But-
ler, CEO of Mighty Music
Corp. in New York.
Upcoming concerts in-
clude Jeff Kashiwa (De-
cember 10th), Matt Mar-
shak (January 15th), Shilts
and Nate Najar (Febru-
ary 12th), Brian Simpson

Denzel Washington saves the

day again in "Unstoppable"

Denzel Washington catches
a runaway train and Rachel
McAdams wrangles with
Harrison Ford in this week's
movie offerings.
I have always loved trains,
so I was a sucker for "Un-
stoppable," an action-thrill-
er based on an actual inci-
dent in 2001, when a CSX
freight train took off with-
out its engineer in Ohio, its
throttle on full and brakes
disengaged. Worse, it had
a number of tank cars filled
with toxic chemicals.
The facts are doctored for
dramatic effect, but after a
slow start "Unstoppable"
becomes a nail-biting ride,
enlivened by some of the
most amazing stunt work
you are ever likely to see on
a moving train, under the di-
rection of action specia-list,
Tony Scott.
His head shaved, and sport-
ing spectacles, Denzel Wash-
ington is Frank Barnes, an
engineer of 28 years experi-
ence saddled with a rookie
conductor played by hand-
some, piercing blue-eyed
hunk Chris Pine. Barnes
resents the rookie, Will Col-
son, and feels he is being
forced out to pasture at his
Pennsylvania-based railroad.
The back story goes on a
bit long as we wait for the
big chase: Frank and Will
in a single locomotive rac-
ing to catch up and couple
on to the back end of an
unmanned half-mile-long
train and attempt to slow
the whole juggernaught to
a crawl so Will can jump
into the lead locomotive and

bring the thing to a halt be-
fore it hits a perilous sharp-
curved elevated trestle.
That's about it folks. If you
dig trains, you'll love the
unbelievable crashes, bash-
es and close calls. If not,
you may pass on this one
with my blessing, .l *

Rachel McAdams shines
in "Morning Glory"

"Morning Glory" featu-
res two old pros and a
dewy-eyed young miss in
a situation comedy about a
grumpy old man, his sharp-
tongued contemporary and
an ingenuous but smart and
determined young movie

This was all done befo-
re and more effectively
in 1987 with "Broadcast
News," but, hey, this is a
new generation, and Rachel
McAdams is an irresistible
rising star.
McAdams' Becky Fuller,
a neophyte television pro-
ducer, loses her job at a
failing New Jersey early
morning news show to be
hired as a what-the-heck
last ditch chance by station
owner Jerry Barnes (Jeff
Goldblum) to resuscitate a
last-place New York morn-
ing news show called "Day-
Becky takes a chance by hir-
ing serious, award-winning
but cynical, condescend-

ing veteran newsman Mike
Pomeroy (Harrison Ford) to
be the new co-anchor with
equally seasoned Colleen
Peck (Diane Keaton)
Yes, it is hate at first sight
as Mike insults Colleen and
refuses to lower himself to
doing the "fluff news" that
is Colleen's specialty.
Through sheer force of will,
ever-perky and cheerful
Becky gets the warring co-
anchors at bay while mirac-
ulously bring "Daybreak"
out of the ratings cellar.
She is cheered on by hunky
Adam Bennett (Patrick Wil-
son), a fellow up-and-com-
ing TV producer.
Aline Brosh McKenna's
script is not nearly as clever
or biting as her adaption of
"The Devil Wears Prada,"

vehicle for the unstoppable

essence these are outtakes,
discovered in 1998, from a

by the Nazi Party as propa-

after World War II. This
"lost footage" gives glimp-

rosy picture being created
to depict cheerful, humane-
ly-treated Jews who have
been relocated to their own
district in Warsaw, where a
half-million human beings
were crowded into an area
of three square miles.
"This film documents evil,
passionately and system-

explains. "This is a rough

"Film Unfinished" is a per-
fect example of how truth
can be distorted and turned
inside out through care-
ful staging and editing. Of
course, Nazis weren't the
only ones who practiced
this deception. Consider the
recent political campaigns
and the outrageous charges
of some of the candidates.
Warsaw was just one ex-
ample of what went on all
over Europe in the name of
"racial purity."
Director Hersonski saves
the worst for last: footage
of the disposal of those who
did not survive to be herded
into cattle and hauled to
death camps. The inhuman-
ity of it all is staggering and
devastating, but the horri-
fying truth must survive.

The season begins to sparkle!

On Thursday, I made my
way to Saks Fifth Avenue
Boca Raton to interview
one of my favorite wom-
en entrepreneurs, Laurice
Rahme, founder and CEO
of Bond No 9 Fragrances.
It's the top selling fragrance
company in all 30 Saks
stores in the US.
This was the third time I'd
interviewed Laurice. The
first time, she told me Saks
stores were clamoring to
have their own store per-
fume. The second time she
told me Saks Boca Raton
was the first store to get its
own signature fragrance.
The store now has three
signature fragrances. Num-
ber three is available now
in a special holiday edition
Swarovski crystal bottle.
Six other stores nationwide
have their own fragrance.

Fourth Annual Carousel Day at Sugar Sand Park

benefits needy children at holidays

By Dale M. King

Park is one of the most ela-
borate recreation venues in
the city.
It has a Science Explorium,
a theater, a playground, ball
fields and, since 2005, a ca-
At that time, Boca Raton
had four Rotary Clubs, and
they joined forces to raise
the money Boca used along

with the city's own cash to
purchase the intricate mer-
ry-go-round, recalled Dave
Wilson, currently president
of the Boca Raton Rotary
Sunset Club.
Because of the Rotary
Clubs' generosity, the Grea-
ter Boca Raton Beach &
Parks District, which owns
the play area, offered each
one a chance to use the car-
ousel one day a year with-
out charge.

The Boca Raton Rotary
Club Sunset and the newly
formed Boca West Rotary
Club decided to combine
their days and turn that
event into a toy drive to ben-
efit needy children.
"I saw Wayne Barton on
TV, asking for toys," said
Wilson. So, the hearts of
Rotarians in two clubs went
out to Barton and others in-
volved in charitable organi-
The toy collection day has
come to be known as the
Annual Carousel Day at
Sugar Sand Park. This year,
the fourth annual event will
be held Dec. 12 from 10
a.m. to 2 p.m. at the carou-
sel in Sugar Sand Park at
300 S. Military Trail, Boca

Wilson said the day is spe-
cial for a number of reasons.
Kids can ride the carousel
for free. All visitors can en-
joy hot dogs and hamburg-
ers with all the "fixin's."
Those planning to attend
are asked to bring a new,
unwrapped toy to be distrib-
uted to children for Christ-
mas at the Wayne Barton
Study Center and to young-
sters who get their meals
from Boca Helping Hands.
The special day of free rides
and food in exchange for a
donated toy is sponsored by
the Boca Raton Rotary Club
Sunset and the Boca West
Rotary Club.

The horses are reproduc-

Chance Morgan has ob-

of these venerated antiques,
and today, creates hand-

all-weather use.
The carousel is placed on a
large brick patio, surround-
ed by benches and shade
trees. It is surmounted by
a decorative tent, complete
with finial. Multitudes of
lights and music enhance
the festive scene.

The Problem of double standards

By: Rick Boxx

According to two studies
conducted by The Marist
College Institute for Public
Opinion, only 28 percent of
the individuals surveyed,
including only 44 percent
of business leaders, be-
lieve people use the same
set of ethical standards in
the workplace as they do in
their personal lives. Appar-
ently, business and profes-
sional men and women ex-
hibit marked differences in
their public and private be-
havior. At least that is how
they are perceived and for
many observers, perception
is reality.
This double standard might
explain some of the well-
documented ethical prob-
lems we have been hear-
ing about in the media.
Although leaders may es-
pouse values such as hon-
esty, integrity and fairness,
those virtues are often cast
aside in favor of expedien-
cy whether that involves
professional advancement,
closing a sale, misrepre-
senting accounting records,
or many other unethical
The individual that con-
sistently lives out beliefs
is becoming increasingly
rare as an "end justifies the
means" philosophy reigns.
And frankly, most business
schools rarely if ever offer
classes on ethics since it

seems so difficult to reach
a consensus on what ethical
standards to uphold as the
Let me suggest one "text-
book" that would serve that
purpose well: the Bible.
While the Scriptures cer-
tainly are not limited to
workplace issues, there is
a wealth of teaching about
proper conduct in business.
And it does not suggest
a "situational ethics" ap-
proach: The beauty of hold-
ing to a biblical worldview
is you only have to remem-
ber one set of standards -
and they apply to both your
personal and business life.
In the New Testament's ac-
count of the life of Jesus
Christ, which we know as
the Gospels, we see that Je-
sus often encountered those
who had a double standard,
and He was always stem
in dealing with them. He
warned in Matthew 23:27-
28, "Woe to you, teachers
of the law and Pharisees,
you hypocrites! You are
like whitewashed tombs,
which look beautiful on the
outside but on the inside are
full of dead men's bones
and everything unclean. In
the same way, on the out-
side you appear to people
as righteous but on the in-
side you are full of hypocri-
sy and wickedness." Strong
words, right?
Jesus was addressing reli-
gious leaders in this situ-

ation, but His point was
clear: He condemned any-
one in a position of respon-
sibility that professed to
believe one thing yet acted
in a completely different
manner. Not one of us is
perfect, but Jesus hated hy-
There are some who would
argue that although the
Bible offers lofty standards
for behavior, whether in
public or in private, those
standards are unrealistic
and simply do not work in
the real world of the 21st
century. I would dispute
such an argument whole-
heartedly. There are nu-
merous examples around
the world of leaders and
companies that have con-
sistently turned to the Bible
as their guide for everyday
operations. Yes, it might be
difficult at times to stand
firm when faced with the
temptation to compromise,
but the rewards of becom-
ing known as a person or
organization that lives out
what you believe are worth
the effort.
Are you tired of living ac-
cording to two different
ethical standards, vacillat-
ing according to circum-
stances and the need of the
moment? Have you grown
weary of promising one
thing and then doing some-
thing very different? Try
simplifying your life and just
use one standard: the Bible.

made this country great?
Labor unions have to re-
evaluate their wage de-
mands and adjust their perks
in order for us to be com-
petitive. We need special
loans and tax deductions for
companies manufacturing in
the USA and a way to penal-
ize those manufactures who
outsource. Our global com-
petitors have received tax re-
lief from their respective go-
vernments to build factories,
and received other financial
benefits for their exports. We
must meet competition by
financing our manufacturers
who employ American labor
and do everything we can
to help them compete in the
global market.
The stimulus money has
been used for some worthy
things, such as weatheri-
zing your home, extending
unemployment benefits, re-
bates on appliances, health
insurance to some, rebates
on buying a home, getting a
small business loan, money
for college, and training for
green jobs. But nothing al-
located to encourage manu-
facturing and the jobs that
According to hnp \\\i\
recovery.gov, (11/05/2010,
Source for Distributing and
Reporting: US Treasury,
Federal Agency Financial

and Activity Reports), we
have paid out $568 billion
of $787 billion in stimulus
money and about $219 bil-
lion dollars is still not paid
out. We can use this money
to help solve our unemploy-
ment situation and be com-
petitive in the global market
place by investing it into our
manufacturing industry.
Another way to try to ba-
lance the trade deficit... why
not make it mandatory for
foreign manufacturers who
sell their goods to us to out-
source a percentage of their
production to the USA?
Some overseas automobile
manufacturers are assem-
bling and sourcing mate-
rials for their automobiles
in our country thus helping
the employment situation. If
the auto industry can do it,
other foreign industries can
outsource some of their pro-
duction to the United States.
Every problem becomes an
opportunity if you find the
solution. Let's get the great
brainpower in our country
to start thinking out of the
box and solve this unem-
ployment puzzle. How good
would we feel when we start
seeing the, 'Made in Ameri-
ca Label' again? How about
encouraging our consumers
to buy American, and have
American makers become
more proactive in advertis-
ing, public relations and
marketing, "Made in Ame-

Dr. Virginia Crist Offers Relationship Solutions

to Boca Raton

By Donovan Ortega

Dr. Virginia Crist is a Flo-
rida Licensed Marriage and
Family Therapist and has
been practicing as an Indi-
vidual and Couples Coun-
selor for over 20 years. Her
credentials are extensive:
a B.A. from the University
of Florida, two Master's de-
grees in Counseling from
Florida Atlantic University,
a five year Ph.D in Mar-
riage and Family Therapy
from Florida State Uni-

versity, and
a Diplomate
from the
apy Asso-
ciation. But
what makes
Crist a spe-
cial therapist
is the appli-
cation of this
widespread knowledge
to her patient's specific
needs, enabling faltering
relationships to blossom
into beautiful, passionate
bonds. She's the best-kept
secret in Boca Raton.
"I don't just try and save
marriages, I try and make
them better than they ever
were before," said Dr.
One statistic that Dr. Crist
references is the rising di-
vorce rate. Fifty percent of
first marriages end in di-
vorce and that number ri-

ses as individuals move on
to their second and third
marriages. To Crist, this
cripples the myth that find-
ing happy relationships
gets easier with experien-
ce. In America, there is a
distinct lack of knowledge
on the concept of love.
"What is troublesome to
me is that there are clas-
ses on history and science,
math or technologies, but
no one is ever taught how
to love in a healthy way"
said Dr. Crist to the Boca
Raton Tribune. "That's
what I like to do with my
patients. I help them find
their soul, and give them
the ability to love happily."
While relationship therapy

is Dr. Crist's expertise, ma-
ny patients arrive in her of-
fice depressed, anxious, or,
simply unhappy.
"They come in, for exam-
ple, these beautiful, lovely
women from Boca Ra-
ton, and they ask, what's
wrong with me," said Dr.
Crist. "Well there's nothing
wrong with them, there's
just an emptiness within
them that needs to be ad-
dressed. Through skilled,
trained conversation, I un-
cover the spirit that they
already have but do not
realize. Knowing how to
love in a healthy way is
learned, it's not innate."
And money can't buy it
either. Crist's patient list

has been extensive and af-
fluent. Household names -
that include the wealthiest
of the wealthy have at-
tended therapy sessions in
her office. She's been fea-
tured on over 35 radio and
television programs and
she was a repeated guest
lecturer at the Boca Raton
Resort and Club.
"I use my experience and
knowledge to help others.
I love my work. No mat-
ter how much outer beau-
ty you have, if you don't
know of the beauty you are
keeping inside, you aren't
going to attract or KEEP a
partner over time. There is
a passion that has to come

Dr. Crist views her pa-
tients with great respect,
which is reciprocated with
complete honesty. Therapy
sessions are a unique and
intimate experiences.

Maximizing Your Practice Time For

Maximum Results

By: Bobby Lopez, PGA

For the average golfer or
non professional, finding
the time to practice is diffi-
cult enough. In most cases,
even if the golfer finds the
time to practice for im-
provement, their methods
are flawed, thereby mak-
ing the process even longer
and inefficient. It's not how
long you practice but how
you practice. This special
report will help you make
the most of the practice time
you have so you can enjoy
the maximum improvement
for better golf.
1) Identify what it is you
need to practice and what
you expect to accomplish.
No need to spend time prac-
ticing movements in your
swing that have no value
for your specific swing
problems. Take a lesson
with video analysis and first
find the exact problem you
need to resolve. Stay fo-
cused on that one need until
it is mastered before mov-
ing on to another topic.
2) Prescribe an exact drill or
remedy to repair the faulty
swing move.
You may choose more than
one drill or remedy for any
one specific problem. At-
tacking a problem from
more than one angle can be
very beneficial.
3) Make sure your drills
can be done without a club
or ball.
Practicing one night a week
at the range for an hour will
lengthen your improvement
time considerably. To assure
fast and lasting results you
need to log a considerable
amount of repetitions of
drills or remedies until the
new movement is natural.

I suggest practicing for 5
minutes every time nobody
is looking! Assign yourself
some drills you can do at
home or office. The more
you do the drills without the
pressure of attempting to
produce proper ball flight is
recommendable. Once you
put a ball down you might
revert back to your old
swing movements and/or
compensations. Taking the
golf ball out of the picture
allows you to stay focused
on the movement you wish
to reprogram. Make no mis-
take about it, this is repro-
gramming of your muscle
memory through repetition.
4) Do your drills slowly and
Running through your drills
quickly and in a sloppy
manner is usually what I
see on the lesson tee. Golf-
ers do the drill two times
and think it's time to hit
another ball. You need to do
every drill very slowly and
deliberately talking to your
subconscious all the way.
Taking inventory of what it
feels like to travel through
your new motion and posi-
5) Use a mirror or friend or
In most cases I would sug-
gest using a mirror or other

tools for feedback if need-
ed. For instance, if you
are working on your spine
angle at address, you can
place some masking tape
on the mirror where you
want your spine angle to
be and the set to the golf
ball and look at the mirror
to see if you have accom-
plished the goal.
6) Once you decide to prac-
tice on the driving range hit
your golf balls slowly.
Don't tell the range owner
this, but most golfers could
get twice the results from
half the number of golf
balls hit. Of course the es-
tablishment wants to see
you beat your balls quickly
and move on so someone
else can use the mat. How-
ever you should take your
time between each shot and
take inventory on your re-
sults. Gary Player used to
place his range balls behind
him so he couldn't hit them
so quickly. Do a drill or two
between each shot. Remind
your mind and body of
where you want it to go.
7) Take notes on your prac-
tice session and improve-
If you can't measure your
progress you're wasting
your time. The golf ball
may not respond to you
immediately. You may be
improving considerably
but haven't seen the results
in ball flight. That's very
common and normal. Stick
to your program and mea-
sure results in the form of
drills completed, balls hit
properly, and your ability
to begin to feel comfortable
with the new motion.

How To Read Golf Greens for Speed and Break

Short putts and long putts,
are played with the same
golf club even though the
stroke pattern and purpose
are quite different. Short
putts demand club face
control while the long putts
demand pace control. The
short putting stroke should
be as short as possible to
lower the risk of changing
your club face position after
aligning the club face at the
target. The long putt stroke
can be long and flowing be-
cause controlling the pace of
the ball speed is your goal.
You'll find when you three
putt a green most of the
time you left your putt short
or you knocked it past the
hole, unless there was a sig-
nificant amount of break that
you did not negotiate prop-
erly. It is usually the pace or
speed of the ball that is the
most difficult to control, es-
pecially on super fast greens
like Augusta.
Today we discuss long putts
and how to first determine
the speed then the break.
Most golfers look at the
break first. I first have to
make a decision on how fast
I'm willing to roll the ball
before I decide how much
break or curvature the ball
will take over the surface it
has to cover. The slower I
roll the ball the more it will
break or curve.
I look at the green from 150
yards first to see any tenden-
cies of lean one way or the
other. If I threw a bucket of
water on that green which
way would it flow off?
Once reaching the green you
need to look at the putt from
both sides to gather all the
information you can about
the surface you are about
to roll the ball on. I suggest
that you drive your golf cart
to the back of the green each
time, (being that most golf-
ers leave their ball short of
the hole on approach) and

then walk around the back
of the putt first. Try walking
a half moon circle around
the putt rather than straight
to the ball. Look at how the
green leans. Understand that
the designer of the green
had to account for water to
flow off the green for drain-
age purposes. Find the area
of drainage and you'll have
the keys to the "lean" of the
Look at the coloration of the
green. Is the color a deep
dark green and thick or is it
light brown with very thin
grass blades? Is it up hill or
down? Is there a ridge where
the ball will speed up on you
and run by the hole? Make a
determination while walking

aluuLiiu LU; luit; an ; LU 1nuw
fast you need to roll the ball.
Then once behind the putt,
meld the information you
acquired from looking at the
putt from the back and the
frontal view you have. Now
and make an educated guess
at the amount of break you
should play for.
Remember if you are off on
your amount of break by a
foot or two it probably won't
cause you to three putt. It's
that putt you leave seven feet
short or twelve feet past the
hole that will cause you to
three putt. Get the pace first,
then the line.

Dolphins add quarterbacks Patrick

Ramsey, Tom Brandstater

By: Chris Nelson

The Miami Dolphins wast-
ed little time filling out
their quarterback depth
with injuries to Chad Pen-
nington and Chad Henne,
signing veteran free-agent
Patrick Ramsey to the ac-
tive roster and second-year
player Tom Brandstater to
the practice squad.
Pennington, who is likely
headed for his fourth and
possibly career-ending
shoulder surgery, was
placed on season-ending
injured reserve to make
room for Ramsey.
The injury to Henne's knee
does not appear to be as se-
vere, as he remains on the
active roster and is walk-
ing without crutches. He
would not officially rule
himself out for Thursday's


contest against the Bears,
although it seems unlikely
he will be able to play.
If Henne cannot go,
Ramsey looks to be the
only active backup behind
er Tyler Thigpen.
Ramsey and Brandstater
earned their contracts af-
ter a Monday workout
that also featured Are-
na quarterback Tommy
Grady, journeyman J. T.
O'Sullivan, and former
first-overall pick JaMarcus

Patrick Ramsey
A star quarterback at Tu-
lane, Ramsey was selected
by the Washington Red-
skins with the final pick
of the third round in 2002
NFL Draft.
Ramsey was in and out

of the starting lineup in
his first two seasons un-
der Redskins' head coach
Steve Spurrier. He started
a career-high 11 games in
2003, throwing for 2,166
yards and 14 touchdowns
with nine interceptions.
When Joe Gibbs returned
as the Redskins' head
coach in 2004, Ramsey
gave way to veteran Mark
Brunell for much of the
following two seasons.
He was named the team's
starter in 2005, but suf-
fered a neck injury in the
season opener and ap-
peared in only four games
as Brunell's backup that
Dealt to the New York
Jets for a sixth-round pick
in the 2006 offseason,
Ramsey was ironically ac-
quired to back up then-Jets
starter Chad Pennington.
He appeared in one game
and threw only one pass
before being released the
following offseason.
Ramsey then spent two
seasons as a backup to
Jay Cutler in Denver, ap-
pearing in two games and
throwing one touchdown
pass in a 2007 game for the
Released once again in
2009, Ramsey signed with
the Tennessee Titans and
and served as the third-
string quarterback behind
Vince Young and Kerry
Collins for the first month
of the season before he
was cut loose. Ramsey lat-
er spent a brief time at the
end of the season with the
Detroit Lions after Mat-
thew Stafford was injured.

Ramsey was signed by
the New Orleans Saints
in 2010 to back up Drew
Brees, but lost out on the
job to Chase Daniel and
was released on Sept. 3.
He spent a brief time with
the Jaguars in October,
but was released upon the
acquisition of Trent Ed-
Financial terms of
Ramsey's deal with the
Dolphins have not yet
been released, but he likely
signed a one-year deal for
the veteran minimum.

Tom Brandstater
A three-year starter at
Fresno State, Brandstater
(6-5, 223) led the Bulldogs
to a 9-4 record in 2007 and
earned the MVP award in
a Humanitarian Bowl win
over Georgia Tech. As a
senior in 2008, he set ca-
reer highs with 2,664 pass-
ing yards and 18 touch-
Brandstater was selected

by the Denver Broncos in
the sixth round of the 2009
NFL Draft, spending his
entire rookie season as the
team's third-string quar-
terback behind Kyle Orton
and Chris Simms.
Upon the acquisitions of
Brandy Quinn via trade
and Tim Tebow in the
2010 NFL Draft, the Bron-
cos waived Brandstater on
June 4.
The Indianapolis Colts
claimed Brandstater off
waivers, allowing him to
compete for the backup
job to Peyton Manning
with fellow 2009 sixth-
rounder Curtis Painter. De-
spite throwing three touch-
downs in the preseason
finale, Brandstater was
waived during final cuts.
He spent the first month of
the season on the team's
practice squad before be-
ing released.
As a practice squad play-
er, Brandstater will make
roughly $5,200 per week.
He will not be eligible to

play in games, but can be
signed to the active roster
at any time.
While Ramsey is essential-
ly a lock to be one-and-do-
ne in Miami, Brandstater
at least has enough room to
grow to where he could be
re-signed this offseason as
a team's third quarterback
behind Henne and Thigpen
in 2011-especially since
Pennington's career might
be coming to an end.

FAU hangs onto one-point lead to win third

grid match in a row

Led by Jeff Vancamp's
three touchdowns, the
Florida Atlantic Univer-
sity Fighting Owls held on
to their early lead against
the Rajin Cajins of Louisa-
na-Lafayette to win 24-23
in last Saturday's game.
This also marks the second
straight week the Owls
prevailed by a single point
against a Sun Belt oppo-
FAU led 21-7 in the third

quarter, and it seemed like
they were in cruise control
until the Rajin Cajins came
storming back to tighten
up the competition.
Then, with 1:45 left in the
game, Rajin Cajin quar-
terback Blaine Gautier
connected with a 43-yard
pass to Vernon Wolfe for
a touchdown, bringing the
game to 24-23.
The Louisiana boys decid-
ed to pass on going for the

tie with an extra-point kick
and opted instead to try
the two-point conversion,
which failed. They also
couldn't capitalize on the
ensuing onside kick.
The Owls kept their hopes
of being Bowl-eligible
alive with the win. FAU
moves to 4-5 (3-3 in the
Sun-Belt) and plays strug-
gling Texas next weekend
in Austin.

The Blame Game: Miami 'fans'

are already pointing fingers

Miami is 6-4 and the blame
game among so-called fans
and sports writers are in full
Some blame the head
coach, Erik Spoelstra. They
say he's not cut out to do
this job, they say he doesn't
use the right line-ups, can't
change the personnel at the
right time, sits players on
the bench when they are
heating up. Simply put,
people are saying he is not
cut out for this job.
Really? After 10 games one
can tell me if a person is
"cut out" for a head coach-
ingj ob? Heck, Miami is two
games over .500 and barely
trailing in the division and
Erik Spoelstra isn't cut out
for this job? To me, Coach
Spo is the second best head
coach in Miami Heat his-
tory, behind Pat Riley. Spo
has a record of 96-78 as a
Miami Heat head coach and
is 18 games over .500, and
you are telling me he isn't
cut out for this job?
Give him a chance, he will
surprise you.
Now, the other person
that people are putting the
blame on is Chris Bosh.
'Fans' and sports writers are
saying Bosh is not strong
enough, he's not a big man,
he's not producing the same
amount of numbers as he
did in Toronto, some go as
far to say he is not worth a
max deal.
Some are saying Miami
wasted money in going af-
ter Bosh and were going
to be better off if they pur-
sued Amar'e Stoudemire or

even Carlos Boozer. Again,
I ask... Really? Amar'e
Stoudemire and the Knicks
are a dismal 3-7 and Stou-
demire is averaging 20
points and eight rebounds,
where in Phoenix he was
averaging 23 points and
nine rebounds. In Phoenix,
Stoudemire had the benefit
of having one of the all-
time great point guards by
his side in the pick-and-pop
in Steve Nash, now Stou-
demire has Raymond Fel-
Don't even get me started
on Carlos Boozer. Yes, I
was one of the few people
that wanted Boozer in a
Heat uniform last season
but let's be honest here,
if you trip on a sports bag
while going to answer your
door and you break your
hand, you are sad. Boozer
was averaging around 20
points and 11 rebounds with
the Utah Jazz, but has yet to
play a game as a member of
the Chicago Bulls.
If you think Chris Bosh
isn't effective, shame on
you. I'm not sure you have

noticed but Bosh is not the
No. 1 scoring option like he
was in Toronto, he is now
the third option behind
Dwyane Wade and LeBron
If you expected Bosh to
average the same amount
of points he did in Toron-
to, that's crazy talk. Bosh
needs to become more of
a defensive and post pres-
ence, not a scoring ma-
chine. Yes, Bosh is lacking
in the rebounds department
right now with only six re-
bounds per game expect
that to change once this
Miami Heat squad molds
and becomes a contender
in the east.
Some fans are so disap-
pointed in Bosh that they
think Miami should trade
the All-Star forward. With
only 10 games into the sea-
son, how can you say that
he's a bust and he needs to
be traded? Bosh is one of
the best power forwards in
the league, give him time
and he will surprise every-
A ridiculous rumor go-

ing around is that people
think Bosh could be traded
to Minnesota and in re-
turn Miami picks up Mi-
chael Beasley. Why? That
would be a horrible trade
for us, why would we give
Bosh to a team in return
for a player that we didn't
want and gave them to only
get a second round pick
in return? Leave Beasley
alone in Minnesota; he has

played exceptionally well
averaging around 21 points
and six rebounds per game.
The reason Beasley has
been playing so well in
Minnesota is because of
the style they play the
game. Miami is a defense-
first team and if you don't
play defense, you will be
benched. Michael is not a
defense first type of player,
he's a scorer.

L i CTuIUs

In all, I think the media
and fans together should
let go of the panic button
and let this season play out.
People expected Miami
to come out of the gates
swinging and clearly that
has not been the case. But,
for now, 6-4 isn't such a
bad record to have. Give it
time, Miami will show all
of the doubters wrong once
they all get healthy again
and bring back the big-
gest weapon off the bench,
Mike Miller.
But for now, it's like LeB-
ron James said, "We all
know Rome wasn't build
in one day. It takes time."
