Craniopagus parasiticus is
a rare medical condition
in which you appear to
have two heads. The sec-
ond head is a residue of an
undeveloped twin. There
are only three known
cases of people surviv-
ing birth with this con-
dition, the most famous
of which was the "Two-
Headed Boy of Bengal,"
who survived four years
in the 1780s until being
killed by a cobra bite.

Safety tip from

Boca Raton Police

Boca police safety tip

Q: I heard that I should keep a copy of the serial number
of my new flat screen television. Is this true?
A: Yes, in fact you should record the serial number to
all of your electronics, including televisions, DVD play-
ers, game consoles (Wii, PlayStation, etc), computers,
digital cameras, etc. If an item with a serial number is
stolen, police can enter the item's serial number into a
database. If the item is taken to a pawnbroker, the bro-
ker is required by law to submit pawn transaction forms
to the local Sheriff's Office within 24 hours. Police can
then compare stolen items against the pawn transaction
database which has resulted in the recovery of thou-
sands of stolen items.
Crime and safety questions are answered by officers
from the Crime Prevention Unit. For more information,

Boca Police arrest

Lynn student from Rhode

Island for making threats

on Facebook

ton Police arrested a Lynn
University student Nov. 14
after he allegedly posted
threats on Facebook indi-
cating that he was going
to recreate a "Columbine
High School incident," a
police report says.
The student, Daniel Sha-
na, 20, of Barrington,
R.I., was taken into cus-
tody and transported to a
mental health facility for
evaluation, said Public In-
formation Officer Sandra
Boonenberg. She also said
he was charged with two
counts of written threats to
kill or do bodily injury and
with two counts of threats;
extortion through writ-
ten communication. Both
crimes are second degree
felonies, police said.
Police were called to Lynn
about 2:15 a.m. to investi-
gate the incident. When of-
ficers spoke with Shana, he
allegedly told them he did
not intend to hurt anyone
and that he was just tired
of people picking on him.
Boca Raton detectives as-
signed to the case spoke
with Shana's friends and
his Facebook friends. Sev-
eral of Shana's friends
read the posts, including

Wu1Y CI4a5e

"Columbine take 2...,"
"just registered for my
firearms license...," "just
purchased the ruger SR9c
9mm." Detectives read the
posts and made copies of
them for evidentiary pur-
Although Shana uses the
name "Deejay DontStop"
on Facebook, Boonenberg
said, he was not attempting
to conceal his identity be-
cause his friends knew this
name was used by Shana.
Police said Shana also
made specific threats
against his ex-girlfriend
and her current boyfriend.
These threats were also
posted on Facebook. Both
the ex-girlfriend and her
current boyfriend are
friends with Shana on
Facebook and received the
threats/posts directly and
were told about the threats
from mutual friends. They
both told detectives they
were afraid for their safety.
Detectives obtained a
search warrant for Shana's
computer, which revealed
that Shana had searched
for firearm licensing infor-
mation, researched cheap
firearms, and viewed
several Columbine High
School shooting videos.

Florida Atlantic University alumnus

named U.S. Ambassador

Atlantic University alum-
nus Robert "Skipp" Orr
was recently sworn in as the
United States Executive Di-
rector to the Asian Develop-
ment Bank (ADB) with the
rank of ambassador.
He was nominated by Presi-
dent Barack Obama to the
post that required confir-
mation in the U.S. Senate,
which took place in Sep-

In his new capaci-ty,
Orr will represent the
United States when
voting on the loans
and grants, mostly
for infrastructure,
that the ADB ex-
tends to other coun-
With extensive ca-

the foundation. He gradu-
ated with a B.A. in history
cum laude in 1976.
"I would like to stress that
I'm really proud of FAU,"
he said. "I'm a big booster
of the history department
where I received my intel-
lectual start, and I love to
come home to the university
when I can. All throughout
my career, I am really grate-

ful that I was a history major
at FAU. They had and have
a great faculty. My history
degree was very diverse and
allowed me to go into any-
thing. It gave me the ability
to develop analytical tools."
Before becoming an ambas-
sador, Orr was chairman of
the board of the Panasonic
Foundation for three years
and worked on Obama's
campaign for the presidency.
He earned an M.A. in gov-

Orr and his wife, Mitsuko,
will live in Manila, Philip-
pines, where the headquar-
ters of the Asian Develop-
ment Bank is located.

Perman enters Florida House

West Boca Raton chiropractor Steve Perman, center, joins other new Florida state rep-
resentatives during swearing-in ceremonies recently at the State House in Tallahassee.

than re-election. Rader lost to Lizbeth Benaquisto.

Thanksgiving reminders can come to you in

many different ways

Did you ever have
one of those
days? I mean
one of those really, REAL-
LY bad days?
I did last week. I won't
go into detail. My wife
says I complaint too much
as it is.
It was a bit ironic that
these difficulties seemed to
come at a time when I was
trying to come up with a
topic for my Thanksgiving
column. Needless to say, I
was distracted for a good
part of the day.
The evening of that par-
ticular day, my wife was
looking over email messag-
es, and drew my attention
to one that was particularly
appropriate. It was not spe-
cific to Thanksgiving, but,
rather, told of how lucky
we are to be Americans as
troublesome as our situa-
tions can be.
I can't find that email,
but I recall it offered statis-
tics that were eye-opening.

It said if we have a home,
enough food and clothing,
then we are doing better
than millions of others in
the world. If we are literate
and could read the email,
we are a leg up on millions
I do remember one statis-
tic. The email said if we are
reading this on a computer,
we are in the top 1 percent
of those in the world.
With Thanksgiving here,
all we have to do is think
about the stricken people in
Haiti or Darfur, the hovels
of India or the gang-infest-
ed streets of Mexico to find
life that is more troubling
than our own.
Yes, we have unemploy-
ment and a stagnant econ-
omy and other problems.
But will still have spirit,
and have seen how Ameri-
cans can stand up and show
their true colors. The last
election proved it. Let's
give thanks to the fact that
we have free speech, free-

dom of assembly, freedom
from invasive searches and
can still pursue happiness.
On Thanksgiving, let
us revel in that happiness,
even just for 24 hours. The
world will spin on tomor-

Good friends
I know I started this col-
umn by talking about a re-
ally bad day. But I have
had a couple of very good
days lately, ones that united
my wife and me with some
good friends.
I was reunited with many
I hadn't seen for a while
during the award ceremony
at Plaza Real in Mizner
Park. Assistant City Man-
ager Mike Woika, former
Development Services
Director Jorge Camejo,
downtown administrative
guru Ruby Childers not
to be confused with Ruby
Tuesday among others.
There was a moment to
speak with Mayor Susan

Whelchel and former May-
or Steven Abrams outside
the trappings of a formal
meeting. Ditto for Deputy
Mayor Susan Haynie and
Council members Cons-
tance Scott and Mike Mul-
laugh. It was nice to meet
Morgan Green from the
Boca Resort. And it's al-
ways good to speak with
PR spitfire Andrea Knibbs
and Chamber President
Troy McLellan.
A day or two later, my
wife and I attended the
grand opening of Burt Ra-
poport's new restaurant,
Deck 84, in Delray Beach.
Burt is also a good friend
to both of us. It was also
wonderful to see him and
his wife, Robin, amid the
swirling success of his new
Yes, lots of familiar fac-
es. Back in New England,
Thanksgiving was known
as something of a home-
coming. I guess the same
is true here in Florida.

Share Thanksgiving greetings with a

friend or someone forgotten

Thanksgiving is a wonder-
ful day. The holiday isn't
tied to religion, but all
faiths can join in the mea-
ning of the day. It's doesn't
celebrate a political event,
though there are things go-
vernment provides that we
can be thankful for. And it
doesn't celebrate a single
person, but is a holiday de-
signed for everyone to par-
ticipate in.
Naturally, I hope all area
residents get a chance to
share the day with family
and friends. But it's even
more important to pass a-
long a greeting to someone
who may not be expecting
Just think back over the past
year and recall something
someone did that deserves
a special thank-you. Send
them a card or letter, even
an email, thanking them for
what they did. It will prob-
ably make their day. And
it will certainly give you a
good feeling inside.
There are so many things
that happen and are quickly
forgotten. And there are
people who come into our
lives for a few moments
and then are gone. Don't
forget them particularly
on this special day.
Our managing editor, Dale
King, told us how he re-
ceived emails this past year
from a couple he gradu-
ated high school with and

whom he hasn't seen since
then. It turns out they are
also living in Florida, mo-
ving from the northeast to
St. Petersburg.
That's an idea, too. Get in
touch with someone you
haven't seen or talked to in
a while. Give them a call, a
card even an e-card and
let them know you were
thinking of them. This is a
good time to renew friend-
ships and maybe even set-
tle disagreements that have
gone on too long.
Whatever you do, enjoy
Thanksgiving. All of us at
the Boca Raton Tribune ho-
pe you have a wonderful
day and a great big "thank
you" to all who have helped
us grow and succeed this

A special message
Speaking of emails, we got
a very nice holiday greeting
from Charlotte Beasley, a
longtime friend, a political
activist and local socialite.
The message in her e-card
"Have a great Thanksgi-
ving...and remember why
it's called that. God pro-
vides us all, the good and
the bad, blessings untold.
The rain, water, sunshine
and breathable air, nourish-
ment, shelter and money,
friends...and yes, even e-
nemies, pets and vermin
alike, the Internet and live

confrontations, not to men-
tion the many, many more
things we take for granted.
So go ahead and stop, take a
moment to offer a heartfelt
'Thank You' for all things,
big and small, to Him who
provides so graciously to
all of us here on this tiny
blue speck of dust (this
globe we call Earth) in the
great Cosmos, which He
has created for His good"
It was very kind of her to
think of us at this busy time
of year, and we are very

Don'tforget 'the launch'
Many of you are planning
to hit the stores and malls
for the "Black Friday" be-
ginning of the shopping
But Friday is also a spe-
cial day for Boca Raton.
It's "launch" day, the time
when the holiday lights are
first illuminated throughout
the downtown, at Mizer
Park and around City Hall.
The event begins at 5 at
the Mizer Park Amphi-
theater, but the highlight
is at 6 p.m. when Mayor
Susan Whelchel throws the
switch and thousands of
lights around the city begin
to twinkle.
There are plenty of events
at Mizer Park for families
to enjoy. It's a great night.
And it's all free. We hope
you attend.

Making a True Impression

It has been said that no
one has a second chance
for making a good, first
impression. This may be
true, though people can
still prove themselves later,
gradually, by new attitudes
and actions, even if at first
no good impression was
The opposite is often also
true. Many people make
excellent good, first impres-
sions, only to fail in main-
taining consistency thereaf-
ter. Commitments are made
to some people on the ba-
sis of how they first pres-
ent themselves, but noth-
ing substantial comes from
them afterwards.
Such problems exist at all
levels of human relation-
ships. Employers come to
expect certain things from
an employee, just as em-
ployees anticipate the ful-
filment of promises made
by their boss which are
never delivered.
Through the years I have
received couples in my
counseling office where one
partner complains: "This
is no longer the man I
had married; I fear I don't
know him anymore." Or

"I no longer recognize the
woman I am married to;
she has changed too much
since our wedding, and not
necessarily for the better."
Then there are those who
promise innocent favors
or services which they do
not take seriously, quickly
forgetting them altoge-
ther. Yet, those unto whom
those promises were made
keep wondering what hap-
pened, without ever secu-
ring an honest reply. It is
preferable not to offer any-
thing than to make a com-
mitment and never fulfil it,
or at least show no sense
of urgency for its delivery.
Lord Chesterfield is fa-
mous for a simple, yet
meaningful, recommenda-
tion: "Never put off until
tomorrow what you can do
today." It's only by fulfil-
ling little tasks on time
that anyone shall be able to
tackle bigger ones, which
are always present in any
person's schedule. Time
never stands still, waiting
for you!
Individually and corpo-
rately, there needs to be
more emphasis on the
need for truth at all times

and at all levels; this de-
mands greater consistency
between what one says and
does. Faithfulness pertains
to little tasks, as well as to
bigger ones!
Politicians often make
promises they can't ful-
fil, knowing that well in
advance. Many salesmen
also impress potential cus-
tomers so as to sell their
product, though their fast
talk often does not cor-
respond to the way things
are, or will be. There is a
famous national car ren-
tal company where all its
young agents look hand-
some, speak convincingly,
and are very courteous.
Yet, none of that conceals
the fact that their major in
college might have been
"double talk."
These, and many others,
are horrendous flaws cer-
tain people utilize to en-
trap others. You need be
less concerned with ap-
pearances, while striving
always for genuine, posi-
tive impressions; these are
possible only when your
words and your actions
are consistent with one an-

Ceremony honors Plaza Real at Mizner Park as

one of 'Ten Great Public Spaces'

By Dale M. King

BOCA RATON The crea-
tion of Mizer Park was
something of a gamble, an
early test of multi-use zo-
ning that combined resi-
dential and cultural aspects
with retail and commercial
It has succeeded well, so
well, in fact, that the Ameri-
can Planning Association
named Plaza Real at Mizer
Park one of the Ten Great
Public Spaces in America in
That special designation led
the city to gather local and
state officials and those in
the business and tourism
fields and community lea-
ders for a ceremony today
(Nov. 18) celebrating the ho-
nor. Also unveiled were a
new permanent plaque and
a commemorative poster.
Noting that Mizer Park
will celebrate its 20th birth-
day in 2011, Mayor Susan
Whelchel said, "The Plaza
Real and Mizer Park story
is a remarkable one, of the
public and private sectors
partnering to create and nur-
ture a vital centerpiece of
downtown Boca Raton."
"Together with [General
Growth Properties, opera-
tors of Mizner Park], we
celebrate not only this cov-
eted APA designation, but
also the many people who
have worked for more than
two decades to make this
such a special place."
Among those in the crowd
were County Commissi-
oner Steven Abrams, who
was a freshman member
of the City Council when
Mizer Park was built; for-
mer Councilwoman Wanda
Thayer; former Boca Raton
Development Services Di-
rector Jorge Camejo along

"Plaza Real didn't just hap-
pen on its own," she said.
"It came about as a result
of public and private part-
nership and strong com-
mitment to turn a shuttered
shopping mall into an attrac-
tive commercial, residential
and business district with a
distinctive and unique pub-
lic commons area."
The area is defined by four
fountains, three wrought-
iron detailed gazebos, pu-

with Mayor Whelchel, Dep-
uty Mayor Susan Haynie,
Community Redevelopment
Agency Chairwoman and
council member Constance
Scott and Council member
Mike Mullaugh.
Scott noted that "Mizer
Park and Plaza Real are part
of what make downtown
Boca Raton a wonderful
place in which to live, work
and play. The APA recogni-
tion exemplifies that with

the site of the former Boca

down in the late 1980s.

American Institute of Certi-
fied Planners and corporate
officer of the American
Planning Association, said,
"Plaza Real is exceptional
for many reasons, including
big thinking, planning and
follow-through on those big
plans; site design and aes-
thetics; public-private col-
laboration and community
engagement," said

At the southwest end is the

Since the age of three, Jana
Hugon has been battling a
degenerative brain condi-
tion that has slowly robbed
her of freedoms. The size
of her brain is steadily de-
creasing. Her legs are para-
lyzed. She has limited use
of her arms and hands. But
despite these things, Jana
still smiles.
She sits quietly and sucks on
a McDonald's smoothie that
her brother, Newton, raises
to her lips. She is unable to
eat solid food, but still, she
grins as the confection hits
her tongue.
"When I look at my daugh-
ter, I see hope," says her
mother, Daisy Hugon.
Jana was born in Brazil, a
beautiful, healthy girl. To
combat an eye ailment, she
was prescribed a medication
that has since been banned.
The drug began systemati-
cally shutting down parts of
her body. Within a week,
Jana was paralyzed. Even-
tually, the University of
Miami offered its services,
and in 1999, Jana and her
family moved permanently
to Miami. Small progresses
were made, but her condi-
tion slowly regressed.
In August of this year, after
moving to Boynton Beach,
Jana was being fed break-
fast when, suddenly, she
lost consciousness. After
being rushed to Bethesda
Memorial Hospital, they
stabilized her condition.
But in September, doctors
suggested she be put into
Hospice because of a severe
case of Pneumonia.
"The doctors had given up
hope," says Daisy. "But we

Horrified by this prospect,
the Hugon family was re-
ferred to a bone marrow
specialist at the South Flori-
da Bone-Marrow and Stem
Cell Transplant Institute. He
had pioneered a procedure
in which a patient's bone
marrow could be stimulated
to release adult stem cells
into the blood stream. The
treatment had succeeded in
restoring brain function in
stroke and cancer patients.
However, because the treat-
ment is experimental, the
Hugon's insurance compa-
ny won't cover the costs of
the $50,000 procedure. But
the Hugon's remain deter-
"Her brain will be formed
again," said Daisy firmly.
"There is no doubt in my
mind that we will raise the

ries with Jana, explaining

"She danced with 15 boys!"

laughed Daisy. "And she lo-
ves music. Especially Lean-
dro and Leonardo."
As Daisy tells the story of
the plane flight, Jana's eyes
widen and she begins to
laugh. Even through hard-
ships, the Hugon's have had
joyful times. This Thanks-
giving won't be any diffe-
"While we eat this Thanks-
giving, I'm going to be so
grateful for this doctor and
the hope he has given us,"
says Daisy.
Newton nods his head in
"I'm thankful for Jana. I'd
give my life for her. I love
her so much," says Newton.
As for Jana, she continues
living through difficulty with
a genuine smile on her face.
She has only one request.
After she has undergone
treatment and is able to eat
solid foods again, she'd like
a steak. When asked what
temperature she would like
it cooked, she answers de-

i A lot happens quickly in

"The Next Three Days"


Crowe as Mr.

For awhile that's what it
seems like in "The Next
Three Days," which stars
Crowe as tweedy Pitts-
burgh English teacher
John Brennan, married to
a lovely young, diabetic
Lara (Elizabeth Banks).
This is a Paul Haggis film
however, and things won't
remain peaceful for long.
We see Lara lift a fire ex-
tinguisher from under her
car as a woman rushes by
and squirts some blood on
Lara's blouse.
These seemingly incon-
sequential actions will
change the life of Lara,
John and their young son.
One evening the police
smash their way into the
Brennans' cozy suburban
home, seize and hand-

cuffed Lara and haul her
off to jail, accused of the
brutal murder of another
No matter that the evi-
dence is circumstantial and
superficial, Lara is found
guilty and sentenced to life
in prison.
For three years John Bren-
nan goes about his daily
routine, quietly seething
about the injustice of it all.
Then one day he snaps,
and after advice by suc-
cessful escapee Damon
Pennington (Liam Nee-
son), Brennan decides to
go all out to spring his wife
from prison.
"The Next Three days" is
an adaptation of the French
film "Pour Elle" (Anything
For Her), written by Fred
Cavye, who collaborated
with Haggis ("Crash") on
the American version.

This is a very complex,
interwoven, scene-shifting
prison break movie, but
with split-second timing,
chases, gunfire and crash-
es aplenty, Haggis keeps
the viewer on the edge of
the seat. It is fun to see a
movie set in Pittsburgh,
and Haggis makes use of
every unique location the
city has to offer. If you can
brush away the logical and
logistical problems of the
plot, "Next Three Days"
is an exciting, suspenseful
rapid ride to an unexpected
destination. j

Also opening this past
weekend was the fifth in-
stallment, "Harry Potter
and The Deathly Hallows,
Part 1" and the cleverly-
named global warming
documentary, "Cool It."

building has been sold, and
club owner John Yurt is

Classic Chloe

unwse oiwnuis
Boca has many outstanding
community leaders, especia-
lly some amazing women who
have been mentors and role
models to me and so many
others. Every week we see
these incredible ladies in the
pages of our paper looking
lovely and helping support our
town's many worthy causes.
Their influence is long-lasting
and is inspiring the next genera-
tion of stylish givers.
Recently, I caught up with
Chloe Dolandis who was be-
ing honored at Blue Martini,
Town Center as part of Boca
Life Magazine's 4i Under
40" issue. This incredibly tal-
ented young singer, only 25
years old, has already made
her mark on this town and I
feel she is poised to take on
the nation when her debut
album, "Bring Back the Fe-
ver," produced by Grammy
o ,TwrAl lrrlnninma n annr 7'rh

Ziskin, is released this
winter. Currently, she
is putting the finishing
touches on it!
I first met Chloe ma-
ny years ago when she
was participating in
BRET's (Boca Raton
Educational Televi-
sion) first Rising Star
competition. I was im-
pressed by her soaring
vocals and outgoing
stage persona. Natu-
rally, as a PR per-
son who does many
events, I thought she would be
perfect to perform at some of
my charity functions. She was
gracious then and has contin-
ued to be there for me and the
many causes I have worked
with over the years.
Whether I needed help rai-
sing funds so a beautiful little
local girl could travel to visit
an eye specialist or I needed a
special tribute to the soldiers,
Chloe always came through
time after time. But this is not
a surprise to those who know
her, giving back is simply part
of her. Some of the charities
she has supported include For-
gotten Soldiers, The Haven,
The Andy Roddick Charity
Foundation, Food for the Poor,
America's Promise Boca Ra-
ton and Cystic Fibrosis Foun-
"I grew up doing it," she ex-
plained. "I am very lucky to
be able to do what I love, and
I hTo- hT1 tho h nnnr nf nor r-

forming at many charitable
functions. I have also been ex-
tremely fortunate to have had
many mentors, so I really also
enjoy working with young
performers helping to mentor
them in return."
Those who see Chloe perform
either live or on TV shows
such as Showtime in Har-
lem, VHl's In Search of the
Partridge Family and NBC's
Fame, immediately notice
that she has unique fashion
style that has deve-loped over
the years. She is as distinctive
in her look as she is in her vo-
cal presentation the mark of
a true star.
Many years back, I did a fun
fashion story at The Boca
Raton News with Chloe and
the girls of The Rising Star
competition at Bloomingda-
les. The look then was sort of
Rocker Chic, but today Chloe
has developed her own style
by creating a mix current and
vintage pieces.
"I love shopping at vintage
and thrift stores," she reveals.
"They have so many unique
items, and I like the idea of
supporting the local economy."
She also enjoys seeking out the
deals at Loehmann's and like
all young women there is the
occasional raid of mom's clos-
et. Mix it all up and you have a
trend-setter to watch!
Make up wise, Chloe loves
Vegan makeup brand ZuZu
and Gabrielle available at
Whole Foods. And you will
also see the singer stocking up
on lots of healthy good food
there as well. "I love to be
green and eco-friendly," she
Whether looking out for the
environment or any of the
causes that are dear to her,
Chloe is always giving from
the heart. Our town is very
lucky to have her and I know
we will all be cheering her on
as she takes her next steps to

Thursday, Nov. 25, Lee
Shuman and Gregg God-
dard will enjoy Thanks-
giving for the first time
in Boca Raton as college
Their friend and room-
mate Tyrone Brooks,
will enjoy his first
Thanksgiving as a col-
lege graduate with an
A.A. degree from Talla-
hassee Community Col-
lege. He is now a junior
at Florida A&M. He in-
tends to go on to gradu-
ate school.
Tyrone got a late start in
college. He is 23 now.
He began college part-
time at Palm Beach
Community (now State)
College, as he had to
work full-time to help
out his family.
Shuman and Goddard
are older than typical
freshmen, too. Lee is 19
and Gregg is 20.
All three men grew up in
the Pearl City section of
Boca Raton. All three have
been involved in PROPEL,
a non-profit whose name
is an acronym for People
Reaching Out to Provide
Education and Leadership.
One of the main missions
of PROPEL is to persuade
young people from eco-
nomically disadvantaged
or broken families to resist
the temptation to drop out
of school, and to stick it out
through high school and if
possible, go on to college,

or at least a
trade school.
Tyrone Brooks
is a shining
example of a
cess story. Stay-
ing in college
has not been
easy. When he
made the deci-
sion to go off to
Tallahassee, he was able to
land some financial assis-
tance, but he has to work to
make ends meet at the law
office of Bill Gwaltney,
whose wife, Jennifer, is a
former executive director
"Of the PROPEL directors,
Jennifer and Tolliver are
my favorites," said Brooks
recently at the fourplex
Tallahassee apartment he
shares with Shuman, God-
dard, and a fourth Boca
Raton man, Gardner Mi-
chel. "Without the help
and guidance of PROPEL,
I don't think I could have
made it into college and
stayed with it."
Tolliver Miller, 41, is the
current executive direc-
tor of PROPEL, a post he
has held for three years. A
Louisiana native, Miller
is a veteran of 12 years in
the U.S. Air Force. In addi-
tion to his PROPEL duties,
Miller is a coach and cur-
rent president of the Boca
Jets youth football league,
now in its 50th season in
Boca Raton.
The three Pearl City youth
all joined PROPEL at the
same time in June of 2004
at the invitation of PRO-
PEL co-founder (with his

Lee anu0mnr
wife Marta), James H.
Batmasian. "Mr. B," as the
kids call him, has a special
concern for the down-and-
out and economically dis-
advantaged. He is loathe
to give up on any PROPEL
boy or girl, even if that per-
son has gotten in trouble
with the law.
Lee Shuman has never been
in trouble with the law, but
he has not had an easy life.
Born in Fort Lauderdale, he
lived with his mother there
until his parents split up. At
age 12 he moved to Boca
Raton to be with his father
Lee Sr. at Dixie Manor.
Like his friend Tyrone, who
was a track and volleyball
star at Boca Raton High
School, Lee excelled at
sports; in his case, football.
Brooks and Shuman are
both physical education
majors. Goddard, who
comes from a pioneering
Pearl City family, is ma-
joring in business manage-
Not every PROPEL partici-
pant is a success. Some fall
by the wayside. Some have
run afoul of the law, but
successes far outnumber

cabinet be the place to do so?

LLE, FI It is
no secret that the economy
has been bad. As a result,
people are trying to cut
costs. Trading in the expen-
sive car for a cheaper one,
switching from the name
brand groceries to generic
store brand ones are just
some ways in which con-
sumers are cutting costs.
But what about when it
comes to our health? Is it re-
ally safe to switch the name
brand drug you use to the
cheaper generic drug?
This past month the Food
and Drug Administration
(FDA) has awarded the Uni-
versity of Maryland School
of Pharmacy a $1.1 million
grant for researchers to ver-
ify the effectiveness of the
generic version of carbam-
azepine and levetiracetam
for epilepsy. At first look,
this grant seems to be given
because of complaints of
physicians and patients that
the drugs didn't react in the
same manner as the name
brand drug.
This is just one of many
instances in which the
"switchability" of generic
and name brand drugs is
Brice Keenom, 20, a Uni-
versity of Florida under-
graduate student, didn't
seem to believe they had
the same quality. "I feel
that maybe they are closely
the same...but not fully the
same," said Keenom.
Sharing a similar position is

macy graduate student at
Nova Southeastern Univer-
sity. According to Richard-

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

By Pastor Sandy


Two men were walking
through a field one day
when they spotted an en-
raged bull. Instantly they
darted toward the nearest
fence. The storming bull
followed in hot pursuit,
and it was soon apparent
they wouldn't make it. Ter-
rified, the one shouted to
the other, "Put up a prayer,
John. We're in for it!" John
answered, "I can't. I've
never made a public prayer
in my life." "But you
must!" implored his com-
panion. "The bull is catch-
ing up to us." "All right,"
panted John, "I'll say the
only prayer I know, the one
my father used to repeat at
the table: 'O Lord, for what
we are about to receive,
make us truly thankful."
I have met happy poor
people and miserable
poor people. I have met
happy wealthy individuals
and I have met miserable
wealthy people. Frankly,
I would rather be rich and
miserable rather than poor
and miserable, but that is
not the point. The point is
wealth, or health, or good
fortune is not what makes
a person happy.

Happiness is an internal
quality, not an external

Lou Holtz, Notre Dame
football coach said, "Abil-
ity is what you're capable
of doing. Motivation de-
termines what you do. At-
titude determines how well
you do it." The Apostle
Paul, another highly mo-
tivated man, learned this
important secret to life. He
said, "I have learned to be
content whatever the cir-
cumstances. I know what it
is to be in need, and I know
what it is to have plenty. I
have learned the secret of
being content in any and
every situation, whether
well fed or hungry, wheth-
er living in plenty or in
want. I can do everything
through Him who gives
me strength" (Philippians
4:11-13). He had learned
the secret of not living life
based on the conditions
around him. He could be
content in prison as well
as at home. His happi-
ness was not based on
situations, it was based on
something much deeper.
"Don't wait to be happy.
Don't postpone happiness
until your situation chang-
es or you have acquired a
certain thing. If you can-
not be happy now, you
will not be happy then, for

happiness is not a condi-
tion of possession or cir-
cumstance. It is a matter of
who you are and how you
respond to life. It is found
within, and unless it is on
the inside, all the things in
the world on the outside
will not make a difference.
If you have been saying,
"I'll be happy when...,"
then you will never be hap-
py because when that con-
dition is met there will be
a dozen more conditions
to take its place. If you
cannot learn to be happy
now, you will never learn
to be happy in spite of how
much you have or achieve.
If you are not content with
less you will never be con-
tent with more. There are
many who live in this fan-
tasy world... "If only I had
this.... If only this were dif-
ferent.... If only I could do
that.... If only this had not
happened in my life...."
What really matters is
what happens in us, not to
us. There is very little dif-
ference in people, but that
little difference makes a
big difference. That dif-
ference is attitude.

Plan your work and work

your plan

In my many years as vice
president of marketing for
a public company and as an
adjunct professor, teaching
business marketing, public
relations, advertising and
professional selling, I found
that real world situations
were not being sufficiently
addressed in many colleges
and universities.
On November 20th, I com-
pleted a survey for a contest
for an international network
which questioned, "What are
the things they never taught
you in school about being
successful in business?" The
response centered on the fact
that they didn't learn enough
about people skills, relation-
ship building and running a
business. Many responses
indicated that they were
never taught how to write
a marketing plan. Whether
they worked for a company
or they planned to go into
their own business, under-
standing the marketing plan
was essential.
The marketing plan is an in-
tegral part of the company's
strategic plan. It is the guide
to the organization's direc-
tions and objectives and is
instrumental in planning a
course of action to accom-
plish these objectives. The
plan can be compared to a
road map that indicates the
various routes to take to
reach a destination Small
and big businesses will find

the trip easier, safer and fast-
er to reach their goals with
this 'road map.'
Don't minimize the impor-
tance of this plan. It's con-
sidered necessary to acquire
financing, keep the business
focused on its direction,
provide a measurement and
evaluation of the organiza-
tion's progress and provide
guidance to employees in
helping them reach their

revise your existing plan,
ask yourself the following

ket? Define the demograph-
ics which is a set of charac-
teristics of a certain group
that describes its back-
ground, economic status,
education and other social
factors. Define the psycho-
graphics which is a set of
characteristics of a certain
group that describes the be-
havioral and psychological
structure, (Sherman & Perl-
man, 2007)
2. Is there or can you create
a want or need for your ser-
vice or product?
3. What is the message you
should send to this target
market to get a reaction?
4. What is the best way
of reaching your target
market? Can it be online,
events, mailers, TV or radio
or a combination of some of

Answers to all of the above
should be taken into ac-
count and periodically up-
dated so that it is included

tomer analysis, business

3 Golf Swing Tips For Instant Results

By: Dave Powell

Are simple golf swing tips
a waste of time? Well, to
improve your golf game
there is no substitute for
getting proper instruction
from your local pro. He
can help you develop sound
technique and work out a

the muscles. It is then the
release of that coiling ac-
tion in the downswing that
helps create power. The
length of your backswing
should be determined by
how much coil you can cre-
ate, not how far back you
can swing the club.
Allowing your chin to

practice regime to
instil these swing fun-
damentals. However,
quick golf swing tips
also have their place
in helping your golf.
They can sometimes
just help spark your
game into life a
certain new swing

thought may just help
get your golf swing
on the right plane,
or a small change in
your set up can have
a major impact on
your impact position.
Here are 3 simple golf
swing tips that could
just make that small
but vital difference to
your golf swing:
In golf a good shoulder turn
is important. But how that
shoulder turn is created is
often misunderstood, and
as a result leads to poor
ball striking. Golfers some-
times make the mistake of
thinking it is the length of
the backswing that gene-
rates power. In an attempt
to make a long backswing
they allow their left heel
to come up too far off the
ground and their hips to
turn too much. While this
action may create turn, it
does not produce coil. The
main role of the backswing
should be to stretch, or coil

rest against your chest at
address makes it impos-
sible to swing your left arm
across your upper body in
the backswing. When the
natural path of the shoul-
ders is blocked, it encour-
ages you to pick the club
up too steeply with your
hands. The result is little
or no weight transfer on
to your right side, creat-
ing a backswing that is far
too narrow. The resulting
downswing becomes too
steep and you usually end
up chopping down on the
ball instead of swinging
through. Keep your chin
up and allow your left arm

to move freely across your
chest. This will enable you
to create the full wide arc
required to strike the ball
When under pressure, ma-
ny golfers make the un-
derstandable mistake of
snatching the club away
too quickly in their back-
swing. This gets
the hands and body
moving at different
speeds and destroys
the swing's natural
rhythm. Here is one
of those simple men-
tal golf swing tips
which if used should
help slow down the
start of your back-
swing. At address, i-
magine there is a ball
and chain attached to
the clubhead. In order
to start the club back
you have to drag that
ball along with it. Not
only will this image
help slow down your
take-away, it will also
make it easier for the rest
of your body to work at the
same pace as your hands.
One of these golf swing
tips may help to instantly
kick start your golf swing
into action, but, remember
that you should only have
one (or two maximum)
golf swing thoughts while
you play.

Busy Offseason for the Florida Marlins

By: Matt Blue

Unfortunately, there will
be no more "And his name
is Dan Uggla!" home run
calls from Rich Waltz and
Tommy Hutton next year.
The team made a very risky
decision by trading All Star
second Baseman Dan Ug-
gla to the Atlanta Braves
for utility man Omar In-
fante and lefty reliever
Mike Dunn. Infante hit
.321/.359/.416 in 56 plate
appearances for the Braves
last year. Also Infante was
selected to the NL All Star
team as well. On the other
hand, Mike Dunn is consid-
ered as a hard throwing left
handed reliever who com-
piled big strikeout num-
bers in Triple A with the
Braves organization. There
is no doubt in my mind
that the Braves got away
with highway robbery. This
was an absolute steal for
the Braves. I don't under-
stand the logic of trading

arguably the
best power hit-
ting second base-
man in baseball
within your own
division to a
team you have
to battle against
throughout the
year. What was
the point?
The fact is they
could have re-
ceived just as
much value in
return; if the
Marlins had de-
cided to trade
Uggla to a team
outside of the
division. You
o should only tra-
de one of the
: ...- best players on
your team to
another team in the same
division if you are going
to receive unbelievable va-
lue in return. There are a
number of teams that were
interested in Dan Uggla.
I mean who wouldn't be?
Last season, he finished
with a .287/.369/.508 line.
Remarkably, he also fini-
shed the 2010 campaign
with 33 home runs and 105
The Marlins did make a
valiant effort to resign Ug-
gla to a contract extension.
The Marlins offered Uggla
a four year 48 million dol-
lar deal. However, Uggla
emphatically demanded a
five year 71 million deal.
Reportedly, the Marlins
increased their initial of-
fer quite a few times and
it is believed that they did
offer him a five year deal.
Theoretically, it is possible
that just Uggla wanted a
change of scenery. Howev-
er, I think he did not receive
very good advice from his

agent. I don't think Uggla
should have turned down
such a reasonable offer. It
is easy to underestimate the
value in which the Marlins
received in return. They did
not just trade Uggla for a
bag of bats and balls based
on any stretch of the imagi-
nation. Omar Infante was
an All Star last year and
Mike Dunn is a strikeout
pitcher. From an overall
standpoint, I don't believe
the Marlins executed the
best possible deal. I was
very disappointed to see
Dan Uggla leave. However,
they did help their ball club
by acquiring an infielder
who hits for a high average
and who does a good job
getting on base and for a
pitcher with decent poten-
In other news, the Mar-
lins agreed to terms with
Catcher John Buck. They
addressed a big team need
by signing Buck to a three
year deal worth $18 mil-
lion. This was the biggest
contract the Marlins have
signed a player to since
2005 when they inked Car-
los Delgado. Last week,
the Marlins traded pitcher
Andrew Miller to the Bos-
ton Red Sox and outfielder
Cameron Maybin to the
San Diego Padres. Miller
and Maybin were two very
highly touted prospects at
one point. The Marlins fi-
nally decided to cut ties
with both players after they
never lived up to expecta-
tions. For Miller, the Mar-
lins received pitcher Dustin
Richardson. As for May-
bin the Marlins received
relievers Ryan Webb and
Edward Mujica. The Mar-
lins organization is in the
process of rebuilding their

volleyball teams

volleyball team at Lynn
University in Boca Raton
has placed a trio of seniors
on All-Sunshine State
Conference teams, it was
recently announced by the
league office.
Libero Lacy Redwine
was named to the first
team while setter Devon
Woolard and middle block-
er Haley Pratt were chosen
for the second team.
Leading the conference
with 5.95 digs per set,
Redwine earned her third
All-Conference selection
of her career. The New
Braunfels, Texas, native
was a second team selec-

tion in 2009 and a fresh-
man team honoree in 2007.
Redwine broke her own
single-season school re-
cord for digs, and by doing
so, she also broke the Lynn
record for career digs with
1,878. Earlier this season,
Redwine recorded 35 digs
at Palm Beach Atlantic,
the Division II season-
high for a three-set match.
Redwine was also a third
team academic all-district
selection this year.
Quarterbacking arguably
the most balanced offen-
sive attack in the nation,
Woolard earned her sec-
ond all-conference honor
after being named to the
freshman team in 2007.
A local product out of Del-
ray Beach, Woolard owns
the Lynn career record
for assists (4,490) and
is fourth on the all-time
digs list with 1,150. The
setter is just the second
1,000/1,000 player in Lynn
history and is the first to re-
cord at least 1,000 assists
in four straight seasons.

The Lynn record holder
for career blocks with 311,
Pratt earned all-conference
distinction for the first
time in her career. A na-
tive of Greenwood, Ind.,
Pratt led the team and fin-
ished fourth in the confer-
ence with a .333 hitting
The six-foot-two middle
blocker finished second
on the squad with 89 total
blocks to take seventh in
the SSC. Pratt is also one
of six Fighting Knights,
the most in all Division II,
to finish with at least 190
Barry's Julia Teixeira was
selected Player of the Year.

was named Freshman of
the Year. Tampa's Chris
Catanach was chosen

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

By: Chris Nelson

NFL Network's Jason La
Canfora reports that Miami
Dolphins outside lineback-
er Cameron Wake could
approach the team about
a contract extension in the
near future.
Currently leading the AFC
with 8.5 sacks and quite
possibly heading for his
first Pro Bowl selection,
Wake will reportedly ask
for the new deal if and
when he reaches 10 sacks
on the season a total that
could be reached tonight
given the Chicago Bears'
poor pass protection.
Originally undrafted out of
Penn State in 2005, Wake
spent a brief time with the
New York Giants and was
out of football before join-
ing the CFL's BC Lions in
Wake took the CFL by
storm, totaling 39 sacks in
two seasons with the team
and earning the league De-
fensive MVP award both
The Dolphins' beat out
more than half the teams in
the NFL when they signed
him as a free agent in 2009,
but actually got him at an
extremely inexpensive pri-
As I broke down back in
January 2009, Wake's cur-
rent four-year deal has a
maximum value of $4.9
million and included a sign-
ing bonus of $1 million.
It calls for minimum base
salaries in all four years for
a total of $1.55 million, in-
cluding a base salary of just
$395,000 in 2009.
Wake totaled 5.5 sacks in
his first season with the

team as a situational pass
rusher, but has been thrust
into the starting role in
2010 with the departure of
veterans Joey Porter and
Jason Taylor.
In addition to his AFC-best
8.5 sacks in 2010, Wake
has also added 32 tackles,
one forced fumble, and four
pass deflections.
Wake is a very humble and
reasonable guy from what I
can tell, but he has one of
the lowest salaries on the
entire Dolphins' roster. It's
hard to argue he doesn't
deserve some kind of pay
increase for the way he's
played and the impact he's
had on the Dolphins' de-
fense this year.
I don't anticipate any prob-
lems with the two sides
working out a deal, because
it's not an unreasonable re-
quest on the player's part
and the Dolphins are smart
enough to lock up one of
their biggest defensive pie-
The Dolphins have shown
no hesitation in extending
the contracts of young key
players or those with poten-
tial, such as Lousaka Polite,
Patrick Cobbs, Greg Ca-
marillo, John Denney, Dan
Carpenter, Brandon Fields,
and Ikaika Alama-Francis.

Wake is arguably more va-
luable than any of the guys
above, and while his con-
tract demands will prob-
ably exceed any of theirs as
well, he's clearly proved to
be worth starter money.
Not only has Wake ex-
celled as a pass rusher this
season, but he has also rap-
idly developed into a com-
plete player than can play
all three downs and defend
the run as well.
While older than your aver-
age second-year player at
28, Wake is in as good of
physical condition as any-
one in the league an cer-
tainly has plenty of good
years left at the rate he's
The Dolphins should re-do
the final two years of his
contract to give him more
appropriate base salaries,
offer him a nice signing bo-
nus up front, and tack on an
additional two years to the
existing deal.
In the end, I expect the
Dolphins to sit down with
Wake and his representa-
tives this offseason and
hammer out a fair deal that
both sides can live with,
and one that will keep one
of the Dolphins' most pro-
ductive defenders in Miami
for the coming years.

Report: Cameron Wake could ask

for new contract

* After a slow start by Chris
Bosh, I believe he is now
finally settling in and find-
ing his place in this Miami
Heat offence. Over the last
two games, Bosh has been
averaging 29 points and 10
rebounds per game. And
it's finally looking as if Mi-
ami is on the rise up. The
Big three have scored 137
in those two game (Phoe-
nix on 11/17, and Charlotte
on 11/19). Miami's offence
is looking more like the
offense many envisioned
when the three best play-
ers in the league decided to
join forces in South Beach.

* Although many critics
will quickly jump on the
fact that Dwyane Wade
only scored 28 points in
those two games, Wade has
done the little things in or-
der to get his team the W
In the November 19 game
versus the Bobcats, Wade
was playing with the flu,
and only one player in the
history of the NBA played
a terrific game with his flu

symptoms and that was
Michael Jordan. Wade told
Coach Spo he wanted to
play and so he did. Wade,
Bosh and James have what
Coach Spoelstra calls
"Team Ego", something
that is pretty clever once
you think of it, all these
players have egos, but if
they centralize their ego for
the team, this team will be

* By no stretch of the imag-
ination has LeBron James
not preformed. He has done
more than that, James leads
the team in points per game
with 23 and also with nine
assists per game. James has
done exactly what he was
brought to Miami to do,
help Wade and the Heat
when Wade was down.
In the last two games in
which Wade has been feel-
ing down, James scored 22
points versus Phoenix and
35 against Charlotte. Don't
Expect LeBron's number
to stay the same once Wade
is back to 100% but it sure
is nice to see that even
when one of our best play-
ers goes down, we can still
win the game because we
have two extra all-stars.

* All-Star ballot voting
had begun. You can go to
NBA.com to vote for your
favorite players. In the bal-
lot this year for the Miami
Heat are Dwyane Wade,
Chris Bosh, LeBron James
and Mario Chalmers. There
is an option to write-in a
player and I encourage you

to write-in Udonis Haslem,
the heart and soul of the
Miami Heat.

* Mario Chalmers is still
rotting on the bench and
only given 5 minutes to
showcase his talent. I ex-
pect this to change as the
season goes on. Mario
Chalmers is much better
than Carlos Arroyo. Does
Arroyo have better court
vision? Yes, but that's
only because he's been in
the league for eight years,
this is Chalmers' third. In
Arroyo's first three NBA
seasons, he averaged three
points, o.3 steals, and one
assist per game. In Chalm-
ers' first three NBA sea-
sons, he's been averaging
eight points, two steals, and
four assists per game. Are
you still wondering who
should be the point guard?
Consider this; Arroyo has
played for 7 teams in his
eight year NBA career...
Is he really the guy you
want starting for the Miami
