For 18 years, Best West-
ern had a pact where they
got everything west of the
Mississippi and Quality
Inns got all the turf east
of the river. But when the
truce broke down, Best
Western created a brand-
new chain called, natu-
rally, Best Eastern. Three
years later, everything
was branded Best West-
ern, along with the gold
crown logo. For a long
time, Best Western was
legally a nonprofit co-op.

Q: I received an email from the UK Global Lottery say-
ing I've won $15 million. The lottery official wants me
to send my name, address, birthday, and a processing fee

I do it?

Team effort leads to

rescue of three generations

of a family

unit from the Boca Raton
Police Services Depart-
ment assisted in a rescue
at sea shortly before 8 a.m.
Nov. 20, according to a po-
lice report.
Public Information Officer
Sandra Boonenberg said
Marine Officer Bob Alma
heard a distress call over
the radio to the U.S. Coast
Guard in Miami. The boa-
ter said his vessel was ta-
king on water.
Officer Alma responded to
the coordinates of the call
and found the unoccupied,
capsized 25-foot vessel
four miles off Red Reef
Boonenberg said that whi-
le he continued to search
the area in six foot seas,
a Coast Guard helicopter
arrived and located three
people in the water about
100 yards north of where
the boat capsized. All were
wearing their lifejackets
and were quickly plucked
from the water by a Sea
Tow operator who also res-
ponded to the distress call.

The three individuals were
then transferred to the Bo-
ca Raton Police Marine
boat and transported to
shore where they declined
medical treatment, police
"This event could have
turned into a tragedy very
quickly", said Officer Al-
ma. "But the fact that all
three individuals were wear-
ing their lifejackets proved
to be a life saver."
Boaters are encouraged to
make sure they have all
the necessary safety equip-
ment required by the U.S.
Coast Guard on board be-
fore heading out. The items
include lifejackets, fire ex-
tinguishers, visual distress
signals, sound making de-
vices, including air horns
and bells, and a throw-able
floatation device.
The rescued individuals
were identified as John
W. Bowman, Sr., 69; John
Bowman Jr., 45 and John
Bowman III, 25. All three
are residents of Cape Cod,
Mass., and Deerfield Beach.

holiday shopping season
gets into full swing, the
Boca Raton Police Services
Department (BRPD) wants
to remind everyone to stay
alert while shopping.
This year, the BRPD has
teamed up with the Town
Center at Boca Raton mall
and its retailers to help
spread the word using "QR
(quick response) Codes,"
which are two-dimension-
al barcodes consisting of
black modules arranged in
a square pattern on a white
During this holiday sea-
son, posters with a holiday
greeting and a QR code will
be placed at various loca-
tions throughout the Town
Center mall. Each code


will identify a participating
retailer's discount coupon
and a safety message from
the BRPD Crime Preven-
tion Unit.
Shoppers with the QR app
simply need to scan the QR
code with their smart phone
to view the message and
the coupon. After show-
ing the retailer the coupon,
shoppers will receive the
applicable discount.
QR apps are typically avail-
able for free as downloads
for any smart phone user.
The BRPD plans to expand
the program to other loca-
tions. Retailers wishing to
participate in the "Be Safe
and Save" program may
contact the Crime Preven-
tion Unit at 561-347-3938.

County Commissioner approves

gleaning contract to help

provide food to
Commissioner Steven L.
Abrams has announced that
the Board of County Com-
missioners approved a con-
tract for gleaning services
with Christians Reaching
Out to Society, Inc. (CROS).
Gleaning is the gathering
of excess produce after the
fields have been harvested.
"This is a good example of
the county co-partnering
with the community and
really making a difference
on numerous levels," said
Abrams. "This initiative not
only provides food to dis-
advantaged residents, it also
maximizes the use of local
resources by discouraging
It has been reported by the
United States Department of
Agriculture that 28 percent
of the total U.S. food supply
(approximately 100 billion
pounds) is wasted annually
- either due to missed me-

chanical harvesting or it is
not profitable for far-mers to
Since 1999, the county has
partnered with Christians
Reaching Out to Society,
Inc. (CROS), which provi-
des volunteers, the needed
labor behind gleaning. Just
this past year, more than
200,000 pounds of food was
gleaned by approximately
1,700 volunteers. Once har-
vested, the product is distrib-
uted to local homeless shel-
ters, day care centers, senior
centers and emergency food
pantries countywide.
There is constant demand
for volunteers to meet the
demands of the growing
season and harvest time.

this program or to volunteer,

gleaning coordinator, at 561-

Black Friday has given us the blues

I always approach Black
Friday with a degree of
The infamous day after
Thanksgiving that's not
only the first day of the
holiday shopping sea-
son, but also supposedly
one of the busiest, is get-
ting out of control. Stores
open earlier and earlier
each year some even on
Thanksgi-ving Day.
But my wife, who took
several days off from
work to prepare a wonder-
ful holiday feast last week,
wanted me to join her for
a journey into the black
hole of commerciality.
"I'll drive," I said, hoping
to hold on to some mea-
sure of control on this day
when control is normally
cast to the wind.
Naturally, we visited Town
Center at Boca Raton mall
- not at 4 a.m., but at a
more civilized hour about
mid-day. I had hoped that
some of the sleep-deprived
bargain hunters would
be gone. Apparently not.
The corridors were packed
wall to wall.
It appeared good luck
might be on our side that

day. We found a park-
ing space fairly close to
the mall, without a lot of
trouble. (We decided not
to park on the grassy area
near Glades Roads where
vehicles were lined up like
a used car lot.)
Once we made our way
through the crowd, we
stopped at one of my
wife's favorite stores and
she entered the shoe de-
partment which appeared
overrun with frantic buyers
and equally frantic clerks.
The staff tried its best to
find the shoes tapping
little messages into hand-
held electronic gizmos.
Then, they disappeared
into the back and returned
with boxes galore.
Over the years, I've dis-
covered that my job in
this particular shoe depart-
ment is to stay out of the
way of the buying public.
I tried my best, despite
being knocked about by
large shopping bags or
large shopping ladies. At
one point, when I tried to
grab hold of a corer of the
checkout counter, a clerk
said with a snarl, "Do you
mind stepping out of the

way?" I wanted to say,
"That's all I've been do-
ing today is stepping out
of the way." But I held my
My wife purchased two
pairs of shoes that she
loved. After something of
a wait, she paid for them -
and we headed for the sec-
ond floor.
There, she looked through
the women's clothing -
and I looked for a chair.
I found a nice, cushy one
and proceeded to do what
I do best on shopping
trips fall asleep. My wife
brought me back from
dreamland after finding
that some of the 50 percent
off stuff wasn't really 50
percent off and some of
the items on the sale rack
weren't really on sale.
Like the Wise Men of
old, we went home by a
different route, stopping
at a couple of electron-
ics stores. In the first, I
encountered a customer
chasing after a clerk, say-
ing, "How do you stay
sane?" The woman didn't
We found a few things, and
vowed to return when the

crowds subsided.
At home, my wife opened
the two boxes of shoes.
When she took the cover
off the first, she found in-
side several wadded-up
pieces of paper and one
"We'll have to go back,"
she said. But not that day.
The sun was already be-
ginning to set. So we in-
vented something new -
Black Saturday.
Steamed about the shoe
malfunction, my wife and
I returned Saturday mom-
ing. She intended to give
the manager a piece of her
mind. And well she might
have. When she went to
the counter, a clerk lis-
tened to her predicament
and said, "Well, it's going
to take me a few minutes.
Why don't you look for the
other shoe."
Stunned, but realizing the
severity of the situation,
my wife looked on the rack
- and she actually found it.
"Do you still want to see
the manager?" I asked. She
thought a moment.
Then, I decided to cut to
the chase. I said: "Let's go
get a couple of pretzels."

Big things come from small businesses

The importance of small
businesses can never be
understated. These firms
are vital employment pro-
viders and creators. They
are often considered the
backbone of a commu-
nity's economic stability.
And that is true right here
in Boca Raton.
We at the Boca Raton Tri-
bune have always sup-
ported small businesses
- because, after all, WE
are a small business, too.
We realize the troubles the
economy has caused, and
we have felt the pain of see-
ing empty shops with "For
Lease" signs on the win-
dows and doors shops that
once housed busy firms.
Something recently came
to our attention that's
aimed at promoting small
businesses and it's some-
thing we agree with 100
percent. It's called the 3/50
Project, and it's designed to
make people realize how
necessary small businesses
are in keeping this nation

Here's how it works:
3 -Think about which
three independently owned
stores you'd miss most if
they were to go out of busi-
ness. Stop in and visit those
stores. Pick up something
you know will make some-

one happy. Your contribu-
tion is what makes these
businesses strong.

50 If just half the em-
ployed U.S. population
spent $50 each month in an
independently owned store,
it would generate more
than $42 billion. Imagine
the impact if three-quarters
of the population spent that

68 -When you spend $100
in an independently owned
store, $68 goes back to the
community. If you shop at
"big box" outlets, the com-
munity gets only $43. And
online sales generate noth-
ing for the community.

1 The number of people
it takes to start making this
happen namely, you.

Carousel Day coming
We can't stress enough the
importance of the fourth
annual "Carousel Day at
Sugar Sand Park" coming
up on Sunday, Dec, 12,
from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
It's a benefit for needy chil-
dren. Those planning to at-
tend are asked to bring an
unwrapped toy that will be
distributed to less-fortunate
youngsters for the holidays.
But the event is a big draw
for families, too. Carousel

rides are free, and there will
be hot dogs and hamburg-
ers with all the fixin's.
Toys collected that day will
be distributed to the needy
through the Wayne Barton
Study Center and Boca
Helping Hands.
It's going to be a day of fun,
and a day when giving will
make you feel good inside.
It's the perfect way to enjoy
the holiday season by hav-
ing a good time and giving
a present to a child who
might otherwise receive
It's being hosted by the
Boca Raton West and Boca
Raton Sunset Rotary clubs.

Light up your home
The Boca Raton Tribune's
first annual Holiday Deco-
rations Contest has just
been launched. We have
already seen some houses
that really shine, so put
your residence into conten-
tion for prizes.
Check the ad elsewhere in
the newspaper for all the
rules. The judging will take
place Dec. 19, and photos
of the winners' homes will
be featured a special holi-
day edition of the Boca Ra-
ton Tribune.
Take holiday pride in your
home. Let your neighbors
around the community see
what you can do.

Missed Opportunities

A great tragedy affecting
large numbers of the hu-
man population, pertains
to missed opportunities in
life. Many live without a
compass, never consult a
map, and operate from the
wrong script.
These are people who
simply let life happen to
them instead of discover-
ing and following the plan
and design the Creator had
pre-ordained for maximum
fulfilment in their earthly
Many persons are easily
satisfied with a mediocre
life instead of the kind of
existence available if they
earnestly seek it and do
what is required to attain it!
Very recently I was reflect-
ing on these issues when
my eyes fell on a phrase
from Oswald Chambers
which somewhat sums it
all up. He wrote: "Many of
us refuse to grow where we
are put, consequently we
take root nowhere."
A most meaningful chal-
lenge for all to heed is,
"Bloom where you are
planted!" Allow the storms
which may surround you,

and the winds of change
which may confuse you, to
provide new incentives to
remain on course and fear-
lessly to keep on keeping
on! Do not wait for condi-
tions to improve before you
attempt something great.
Even in the midst of any
other trouble, in the face
of giant obstacles, in frail
health or with limited re-
sources, you can still take a
positive step forward in the
execution of any project.
Dr. Howard G. Hendricks
offered a meaningful re-
minder when he wrote:
"We are all faced with a se-
ries of opportunities, bril-
liantly disguised as unsol-
vable problems." Indeed,
some people thrive on chal-
lenges and even welcome
impossibilities which they
creatively transform into
significant, new realities!
Others, sadly, become pa-
ralysed the moment things
do not go their way; they
prefer to seek a safe refuge
elsewhere and dismiss all
previous attempts in pursu-
ing their objectives. But as
anyone can easily recog-
nize, the dictionary is the

only place where "success"
comes before "work." Only
through persistence, sweat
and tears, may one's goals
be reached, and often trans-
Sometimes you may need
to take detours along the
way and even experience
unpleasant hardships, but
as long as it is the path
where you are supposed to
be and to follow, such is the
road where you need to re-
main till the journey ends!
After all, for every problem
there is a solution; some
take longer than others but
all can be fixed!
As I've written before, no
door of hope, no gate of op-
portunity, will ever be shut
to you if, with endurance
and determination, you
seek to enter it. Remember,
big opportunities start quite
small before they reach the
level intended for them.
Don't miss any which may
seek entrance at the doors
of your heart and of your
mind, even when you least
expect it. Capture the mo-
ment, seize the opportunity,
and run away with it into

for her production staff, attendance at which is mandatory. As we learn early in the play,
Barbara is the kind of boss who brooks no contradiction.
But when Barbara receives an ominous threat that she will not live to see Christmas
Day, it becomes clear that at least one member of her staff has had enough of Barbara's

irrational need to control
people. Will Barbara sur-
vive her own party? And
who on her staff wants her

darling of "thousands of

staff is portrayed by John

Alan Bennett (her direc-
tor), Randy Threewits (her
make-up artist) and Trisha
Shervin (her writer). Bran-

Connie Bell, who would

clearly like to take Bar-

perhaps, even sooner).
Helping Barbara to identi-

before it's too late is Zach

plays the inevitable Unex-

a young photographer who
clearly knows more about
Barbara than any ordinary
stranger should.

Smokehouse Grille

By: Dale King and
Julia Hebert

BOCA RATON Some peo-
ple think rib joints are a dime
a dozen.
But the owners of the newly
opened Smokehouse Grille
& Wingery in Boca Raton
think their revamped eatery
is golden. So, apparently,
do most of the customers
who've recorded their com-
ments on the establish-
ment's Facebook page.
The secret to exceptional
ribs, smokehouse combina-
tions, burgers and other fare
lies not inside the restaurant,
but in the rear where a large
"smoker" that can cook up
to a ton of meat at once is
located. Co-proprietors Erik
Frasco and Mark Uffer trav-
eled 3,600 miles to Missouri
to seek out the custom-made
hardwood smoker respon-
sible for the establishment's
authentic smoked barbeque
"Authentic smoked barbe-
cue is the result of more than
just a traditional oven or char
grill," explained Uffer, who
handles the cooking respon-

in Boca Raton.

sibilities. "We smoke
our meats over hick-
ory and oak logs, creating
natural, hardwood flavors.
Our fresh, never-frozen in-
gredients and slow cooking
process ensure the highest
quality barbecue, making
us the only local authentic
smokehouse in Boca Ra-
The owners say Smoke-
house's one-of-a-kind bar-
beque process provides
unique character, depth and
genuine smoked flavor to its
menu items. The extensive
assortment includes smoked
ribs, brisket, chicken, wings,
sausages, pork and a vast
array of Smokehouse com-
bos. With many meats smo-
ked between two and 27
hours, the final products are
fall-off-the-bone tender and
cooked to rib-tickling per-
In addition, Smokehouse's
proprietary "Magic Dust"
seasoning is a secret blend
of 19 spices gently rubbed
on all of the meats before
the long and slow smoking
process over a hardwood
fire begins. This process
creates a "bark" and visible
smoke ring that enhances the
flavors of Smokehouse's au-
thentic barbecue, said Uffer.
The cooked meats are
paired with sides like Cole
slaw, Poblano-cheddar corn
bread and baked beans
blended the old-fashioned
way to complete the meal.
Smokehouse specialties
include the Pepper Fever
Burger topped with Roasted
Poblano Pepper Relish, Pan-

ko-Crusted Grouper served
with a Chipotle Aioli, and
"Smokehouse Wings" smo-
thered with homemade sauc-
es like "Wicked" (the hottest
of hot sauces), Jamaican
Jerk, Lemon Pepper, Tradi-
tional BBQ, Sweet & Tangy,
and Tangy Raspberry.
When reporters got a chance
to sample some of the res-
taurant's fare recently, each
was given the opportunity
to select his or her favorite
sauce and could take a con-
tainer of it home.
Visiting journalists also got
the opportunity to view the
massive, barrel-like cooker
at the rear of the restaurant.
Frasco and Uffer are foun-
ders of Wicked Restaurants
LLC, headquartered in Wel-
lington. The company en-
tered the restaurant market
in March 2009 when it took
over the 23-year-old esta-
blishment, Boca Wings &
Ribs at 2257 N. Federal
Highway in Boca Raton and
converting it to the Smoke-
house Grille & Wingery.
Uffer said the renovation
was done without having
to close the place down. He
also noted that the company
plans on further expansion
of the Smokehouse Grille
& Wingery brand into ad-
ditional markets in the near
Smokehouse Grille &
Wingery is open for
lunch and dinner Monday
through Sunday starting at
11 a.m. with delivery and
catering available.

Boca Rotary West sponsors document day, distributes

BOCA RATON Residents
who have come to the Boca
Raton area from Brazil
were able to meet with of-
ficials of the Brazilian Con-
sulate all day last Saturday
and Sunday to have docu-
ments from their native
country processed.
The event was held at
the Boca Glades Bap-
tist Church, 10101 Judge
Winikoff Road, West Boca,
in the Family Life Center.
Every other month, the
Boca Raton Rotary Club
West sponsors the spe-
cial two-day sessions that
bring staff members from
the Consulate to the Boca
Raton area so that Brazil-
ian residents do not have to
travel to Miami.
The Rotary also has about
30 volunteers working with
the Consulate's staff.
All types of documents

were processed. Brazilian
students attending universi-
ties in the United States had
their diplomas validated,
for example.
The Boca Raton Rotary
Club West is also currently
involved in the distribu-
tion of dictionaries to third
graders at Del Prado, Coral
Sunset and Water's Edge
Elementary schools.
In addition, the Boca Raton
Rotary Club West is joining
with the Boca Raton Rotary
Club Sunset to present the
fourth annual Carousel Day
at Sugar Sand Park Dec. 12
from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. The
park is at 300 S. Military K
Trail in Boca Raton.
The clubs are asking
residents to bring an un-
wrapped toy to Carou-
sel Day, which is free
and open to the public.

'Vices: A Love Story' provides a powerful start

to new season at Caldwell Theatre

"Vices: A Love Story" was
nominated for eight Car-
bonell Awards and won
two: Holly Shunkey for
Best Leading Actress in a
Musical, and AC Ciulla for
Best Choreography, when
it made its world premiere
in the summer of 2009 at
Caldwell Theatre Com-
Artistic director reasoned
that since it was a sum-
mer show, many Caldwell
snowbird patrons missed
it the first time around. So,
"Vices" opens the new sea-
son and runs through Dec.
12 at Caldwell, 7901 N.
Federal Highway, Boca Ra-
While "Vices" is an en-
semble piece for two dan-
cers and four actors, if there
is a star of the show it is

Holly Shunkey, a riveting
performer if there ever was
Holly is back, and she has a
new partner in Albert Blaise
Catafisi, a powerful dancer
and actor who gracefully
supports and complements
Ms. Shunkey in the erotic,
intertwining, athletic dance
of desire that sets the mood
for this production of dance
and music illustrating the
vagaries of love in the 21st
The clever dialogue is writ-
ten by Michael Heitzman
and Ilene Reid, who also
collaborated on the music
along with Susan Draus
and Everett Bradley.
"Vices" is performed rapid-
fire, without intermission,
under the direction of Clive
Cholerton, with musical di-

reaction by Eric Alsford.
As the title declares, this is
a story of the power of love
and the tenacious grip of
vices, flaws and addictions
that interfere with love. Re-
turning for this round is the
terrific tenor Carlos L. En-
cinas and the spritely, lithe-
some blond soprano Lara
Janine. New to the produc-
tion is the big-voiced and
expressive Danielle Lee
Greaves and the equally ad-
ept singer and agile dancer
Will-Lee Williams.
The number "What If' seg-
ues into the irksome but
comical vice of "Do You
Mind If I Smoke?" a ques-
tion which is decreasingly
sympathetic, and "Hello...
Aah," which celebrates and
puts down cell phone com-

The guys have fun throw-
ing fake weights around in
"Buff," as does everyone in
the debt-crazy "Charge It"
and self-satisfying "Choco-
Boca ladies will relate to
the mocking entreaties of
"Nip and Tuck," and ev-
eryone will understand
the televised mayhem of
"White Noise."
The band, contained in
a loft about the stage, is
super-tight with seasoned
pros, including some es-
pecially tasty yet not over-
powering electric guitar
work from Greg Chance.
The vices continue with
"Hit Me," about gambling,
"All the Money" about
acquisition and "Tempta-
tion," about everything
See "Vices" with someone
you love; preferably with
someone who appreciates
the beauty of expressive
dance. It's a strong start for
Caldwell's 2010-2011 sea-
son and sign of good things
to come.
Tickets are $38, $42 and
$50. Call 561-241-7432

The heat will be on as

chef 'grills' food writers

Y ou know
the season's
truly here
when you
find your-
self in traffic on the way
to the office and actually
have to wait in line at a
restaurant! I know season's
here when my e-mail inbox
is nearing capacity. This
week was no exception.
On Monday, Dec. 6, An-
drew Roebuck, Executive
Chef of the Boca Resort &
Club, is turning the tables
on food critics at the sixth
season opener of the popu-
lar "Culture & Cocktails"
series hosted by the Palm
Beach County Cultural
Council. Andrew will be
"grilling" sorry, moderat-
ing a discussion on "Food
Glorious Food." The lucky
critics are Liz Balmaseda,
Restaurant Reviewer, The
Palm Beach Post; Bill Cita-
ra, Food Editor & Restau-
rant Reviewer, Boca Raton
Magazine and Jan Norris,
Food Writer for the Sun
Sentinel and blogger. Tick-
ets at $35 are still available
from 561-472-3330.
Carla Marsh, longtime
PR person for the Boca
Bacchanal (March 18-20)
called with big culinary
news, "The Mango Gang
is back!" I've heard of the
Wild Bunch, but the Man-

go Gang?
All was revealed as Carla
explained, "The Mango
Gang were the award-win-
ning chefs who emerged in
the late 1980s who revo-
lutionized the way South
Florida was perceived as
a foodie destination. They
took our native products,
citrus, fish, shellfish, arti-
san cheeses, etc., and put
them together to reflect our
cultural mix and Caribbe-
an and Cuban influences."
In other Bacchanal news, a
"Rock your Bacchus" after
party will be held on Sat-
urday night, with dancing
and partying into the wee
hours at the Boca Raton
Resort. Sounds like a wily
plan to bur off calories
before the Grand Tasting
on Sunday!
Joanne Weiner, founder of
Boca's Private Tutoring
Services and Royal Palm
Academy, told me she and
a group of fearless women
are launching a new Palm
Beach Women's Inter-
national Film Festival,
April 7-10, 2011. Joanne's
company supplies educa-
tors to people traveling all
over the world and runs
the school on the Winter
Equestrian Festival's show
grounds in Wellington!
The film festival will be
held partly at FAU's new

Culture and Society Build-
ing movie complex, oper-
ated by Living Room The-
aters. The building houses
a state-of-the-art all-digital
movie complex with four
separate theaters and a
cafe. It's the first and only
all-digital theatre on a uni-
versity campus another
first for Boca!
On nights and weekends,
we can catch foreign, clas-
sic and independent films
and eat in the European-
style cafe, which apparent-
ly serves everything on re-
usable plates and glasses,
to cut down on waste. Ah
qui-Le Recyling!

your help with everyday
giving of food! Call them

"Dave Koz And Friends A Smooth Jazz

Christmas" Tour

Featuring Jonathan Butler, Brian

Culbertson And Candy Dulfer

Six-time GRAMMY
nominee Dave Koz is cel-
ebrating the holiday season
with the 13th anniversary
edition of the "Dave Koz
and Friends A Smooth Jazz
Christmas" tour with spe-
cial featured guests South
African singer/guitar-
ist Jonathan Butler, key-
boardist Brian Culbertson
and Dutch saxophone star
Candy Dulfer. Their con-
cert at the Broward Center
for the Performing Arts, on
November 29th, was a once
in a lifetime experience
and the stuff jazz lovers'
dreams are made of. Brian
Simpson, who also per-
formed on keyboards at this
concert, will be the featured
performer on March 18th,
2011 at the fifth concert
in the "Royal Palm Place
Smooth Jazz Series".
Koz's take on the classic
Burt Bacharach-Hal David
song "This Guy's In Love
With You" is No. 1 on the
Breakouts for Hot Dance
Club Play chart, and for
good reason. It features
Dave's first-ever lead vocal
performance, and he posi-
tively wowed the sold-out
Jonathan Butler is not your
traditional jazz vocalist. In
the spirit of a Bill Withers
tune, "You've Got To Be-
lieve In Something" finds
Butler crooning on this
inspirational affirmation.
"This song came to me
while reading scriptures.
We're often lost in our
struggles, but you've got to
keep going and think about

the positive side," says
Butler. His passion for
his music and the message
clearly comes through;
"soul jazz", for lack of a
better term, seems to be the
most fitting description for
his music and the driving
force behind his live per-
Chart-topping keyboardist
and multi-instrumentalist
Brian Culbertson is con-
sidered a musical virtuoso.
Composer, arranger, con-
temporary jazz keyboard-
ist, trombonist and bassist
- he has done it all. His
stage presence is powerful,
funny, and even mesmeriz-
ing at times.
Candy Dulfer is a Dutch
alto-saxophonist who first
caught the public's eye as
Prince's protege via his
video for the song "Par-
tyman." Blending jazz,
rock, funk and groove
into a groove that doesn't
quit, her style goes beyond
smooth jazz. You can't
help but be totally blown
away by the sheer strength
and power she exhibits; she

can definitely hold her own
on sax, sing beautifully, is
gorgeous to the point of
getting the audience's tem-
peratures rising, and man-
ages to blow your socks
off all at the same time...
trust us, it just doesn't get
any hotter than that. If you
want sexy sax, Candy is an
absolute must..
Bottom line: Just picture
the entire audience clap-
ping, singing and moving
to the beats... oh, and let's
not forget multiple stand-
ing ovations. Put these
four electrifying perform-
ers together and the result
is sheer magic!
Dave Koz is one of the
premiere saxophonists in
the world, has received six
Grammy nominations, won
multiple Oasis Smooth
Jazz awards, and has per-
formed around the world
not only as a solo artist
but also with such musical
legends as Ray Charles,
Celine Dion, U2, Luther
Vandross and Rod Stewart.

H Rescued local mastiff pays it forward, saving

lives of others

By Sam Tett

Goliath is a purebred Eng-
lish mastiff, rescued by lo-
cal veterinarian, Dr. Lesley
Hack. Having gone from
homeless to hero in the spa-
ce of just a few months,
Goliath is a true local dog-
gy legend.
As a young dog, Goliath
fell victim to that common

puppy plight: he chased a
car, and it hit him. The ac-
cident broke two of the big-
gest bones in his right front
leg. His owners, unable to
spend the many thousands
it would cost to repair his
fractures, were forced to
surrender him to the local
Humane Society. They, too,
could also not afford the
massive price tag on the re-

quired surgery, and Goliath
spent two and a half painful
months without receiving
veterinary care.
Finally, Goliath was res-
cued, and he arrived at
the clinic where Dr. Lesley
Hack was working. Dr.
Hack began supportive care
for this emaciated dog with
his dangling, useless front
leg. A local veterinary spe-
cialist a-greed to repair the
fractures for a reduced fee,
and the clinic banded to-
gether in order to fundraise
the money. In the interim,
Dr. Hack's care allowed the
dog to gain strength.
Having developed a fond-
ness for this gentle giant,

Dr. Hack introduced Goli-
ath to her husband; it was
love at first sight, and this
new addition to her fami-
ly has inspired Dr. Hack to
open a clinic of her own:
"Goliath's story is one of
those that has inspired me
to incorporate a veterinary
assistance program into
my new veterinary clinic,"
says Hack, "I truly believe
that if such a program
had been available to his
previous owners, Goliath
would never have been sur-
rendered. He is one of the
lucky few to have a happy
ending, but for every happy
ending there are hundreds
of sad ones."

Goliath is the mascot of Dr.
Hack's newly-established
Boca Veterinary Clinic, and
its charitable program, the
Boca Veterinary Assistance
Program. Through this cha-
rity, the clinic will channel
donations to help qualify-
ing patients get the extra
care they need.
Furthermore, Boca Vete-
rinary Clinic has been
founded on the principle
that the cost of veterinary
care should not be out of the
average person's reach. 'If
Goliaths surgery had cost a
little less, or the family had
been able to get some as-
sistance through a program
or through pet insurance",

says Dr Hack, his own-
ers may have been able to
work something out."
Best of all, Goliath has
a new job: Blood Donor
Extraordinaire! Every few
months he donates blood,
and there are several dogs
who could claim to be part-
mastiff after receiving a
Goliath transfusion. It's a
ripple effect, claims Hack:
by saving Goliath's life,
many other beloved pets
have been saved.
Boca Veterinary Clinic is
located south of the Power-
line/Palmetto intersection,
between Party City and
Kosher Marketplace.

A 'Honey' of a Lab/Shepherd
mix is waiting for you at

December 2 through December 8, 2010 21

Story, photo by: Pam D 'Addio

Honey, a female Lab/Shep-
herd mix, one year old
weighing 35 pounds.
Yep, I'm a real "honey"
you'll want to meet. My first
year of life has been event-
ful. I had puppies and land-
ed here, homeless. They tell
me the rest of my life will be
much nicer because a nice
person like you will choose
to adopt and love me.

I* I'm very energetic
and still act like a
puppy myself, but
I'm housebroken
already. I'll be a great fam-
ily dog with older kids and
other dogs, but I like to
chase critters, including
cats. (They have no sense of
humor a-bout it!).
I need some love and trai-
ning, and a lot of exercise.
If you lead an active life and
there's room in it for me, let's
meet and become a family!
I'm available for adoption at

ety, a no-kill animal shelter

P perhaps the
greatest power
humans possess
is the power
of choice. It
seems nothing brings us
greater pleasure than the
power to choose, but noth-
ing brings a greater poten-
tial for pain and destruction
like choice.
Our lives are the sum of
our choices, therefore, it
behooves us to learn to
choose wisely. Learning
to choose wisely means we
understand some important

1. Our choices have con-

On this planet where peo-
ple, companies, nations are
all exercising their ability
to choose means we will
all be profoundly affected
by their decisions. This
means the decisions people
make and the things people
do link up to constitute our
circumstances. For the
most part then, things don't
just happen; rather, people
do things.
Crime doesn't rise... people
commit more crimes. Pric-
es don't rise: people raise

prices. We use all sorts of
convenient verbal short-
hand to say that things hap-
pen, but it doesn't change
the fact that people cause
Groups of people are noth-
ing but people, whether
they are congress, a mob,
or a committee. The legal
system doesn't do anything;
judges, jurors, lawyers, and
legislators do. The arts
don't flourish: artist create
and patrons buy their work.
Everyday people make de-
cisions in boardrooms and
executive offices that set
policies affecting millions
of people.
One night in December
1982 a husband and wife
from Westland, Michigan,
were driving home when
a fourteen-pound bowl-
ing ball crashed through
their windshield, killing the
husband. Did something
admittedly pretty bizarre
just happen to him? No. A
nineteen-year-old teen in
a car up ahead tossed the
bowling ball out his win-
dow and let it bounce down
the road.
Learning to make wise
choices means I understand
that my choices profoundly

affect me and others.

2. You can choose, but
you can't choose your

We live in a world governed
by strict laws of cause and
effect; if you jump out of
ten story window, gravity
will pull you down to your
death. If you sow corn,
you will reap corn. When
choices are made, they are
mirrored by their conse-
quences. "My experience
shows that those who plant
trouble and cultivate evil
will harvest the same." (Job
4.8 Bible)
Just as reliable physical
laws operate in our uni-
verse, equally fixed and
functional laws operate in
the spiritual realm. Solo-
mon, considered to be the
wisest man who ever lived
wrote "He who brings trou-
ble on his family will inher-
it only wind." (Prov. 11.29
Bible) He learned that
truth firsthand, and in this
day of moral relativism,
people need to remember
that moral absolutes exist
in the universe.

target market and create
word of mouth. It's not ad-
vertising; you are not selling
anything. Its purpose is to

disseminate information to
benefit and entertain people
who visit these social media
entities. Understanding the
objectives of the tools and
what they can create will
help you make the decision
of how much time and ef-
fort you wish to spend on
these activities.
Blogs are one of the most
dramatic avenues for dis-
seminating information.
How many businesses are
using blogs? To be an ef-
fective participant means
working at it and mana-
ging it. This open forum is
a cost effective way of cre-
ating word of mouth news
and also to gather feedback
from your base. It can also
become an indirect focus

direct information about
your product or service.
Networking typically brings
together an extended group
of people who share simi-
lar interests. It allows these
people to interact and re-
main in informal contact for
mutual assistance or sup-
port. It also offers the op-
portunities to meet and forge
business relationships with
potential clients, suppliers,
peers, and other members
of your business commu-
Networking can become a
highly organized activity.
Networking events such as

those organized by the local
Chamber of Commerce, and
membership groups com-
prised of business people
from a wide variety of fields
and industries, typically fall
into this category.
You can find networking
opportunities in places you
never dreamed of. For ins-
tance, doing something for
the community voluntee-

of a local non-profit organi-
zation is such an example.
Another excellent avenue
for combining community

pooling their resources and
contributing their talents
to help serve communities

dedication to this ideal is
best expressed in its prin-

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

Boost Business for Boca this December!

By Sam Tett

The Holiday Season
is upon us, and we've
shopped our way through
all of the big-name stores
during their blow-out holi-
day sales events. First came
Black Friday, followed by
American Express' Small
Business Saturday, and
then we finished it all off
with Cyber Monday. How
about we dedicate some of
our shopping this Decem-
ber to supporting the local
businessmen and women
of Boca Raton?
The Boca Raton Tribune
would like to encourage
you all to shop locally this
month. It has been a diffi-
cult year for the American
economy, and for the small
business owner in particu-
lar. Boca Raton is a won-
derful place to live, with
a unique character and a
diverse collection of things
to see and do but Florida
has been hit hard by this
recession, and our local

businessmen and women
could use a little help from
us. Our strength lies in our
uniqueness here in Boca;
one may frequent a chain
or franchise in any other
city in the country, but if
we want to help Boca Ra-
ton remain strong, we must
also shop locally.
For every $100 spent in in-
dependently owned stores,
$68 of it goes right back
into the local economy; so
instead of patronizing a big
chain eatery this season,
why not drop by one of our
fantastic local restaurants
for your winter family
gatherings? If you're look-
ing for a gift for someone
special, consider getting
them something unique
from one of our indepen-
dent local retailers. Redis-
cover the charm of what
is means to shop locally,
where the proprietors
know their trade, and treat
each customer as an indi-
Whether you're looking

for that perfect gift, drop-
ping off your dry-cleaning,
getting your hair cut, or
just going out for a meal
with family and friends,
think locally this holiday
season. By helping your
local businessmen and
women, you help your
neighbors, family, and
friends by keeping Boca
strong and thriving.
The Boca Raton Tribune
fully embrace this cause;
throughout the month of
December we will be fea-
turing small businesses
from around Boca Raton
and West Boca. If you or
someone you know owns a
small, local business, and
would like to be featured
in the paper, please email
us at news@bocatribune.
Tis' the season to go out
and shop locally and
don't forget to tell them
that we at The Boca Raton
Tribune sent you!

Boca High gymnast beams after committing

to Bowling Green

Locingo always dreamed
of competing in gymnastics
at a high level.
The 17-year-old Boca Ra-
ton High School student
and two-time state gymnas-
tics champion will realize
those dreams next fall when
she competes for Bowling
Green State University.
"I like the coaches," she
said, "and when I went
there to visit, it was beau-
tiful," said the 5-foot-1
powerhouse who trains at
American Twisters in Co-
conut Creek. "I want to
see snow and I have been
in Florida my whole life. I
thought a northern school
would be a good choice for

She has seen snow only
once in her life, during a
competition in New York
when he was 12.
Locingo also visited East-
ern Michigan, and had re-
ceived inquiries from Yale
and Utah before deciding
to attend Bowling Green,
where she will be reunited
with a former American
Twisters teammate, Gabri-
ela Swanson of Lighthouse
Point, a freshman at the
The daughter of Pam St.
Pierre and Chuck and
Daudie Locigno, she said
Bowling Green entered the
picture early this year. She
spoke with team officials
every Monday at 9 p.m.
and went for an unofficial

visit in May and had to wait
until a scholarship became
available. She committed
in July and took her official
visit in August.
"I am extremely excited
about the signing," Locig-
no said. "It is everything I
have ever worked for since
I was a little girl. It's been
my goal, and it's a dream
come true to know that I am
going to a school for some-
thing I love."
Locigno got her start in
gymnastic doing Mommy
and Me classes when she
was 2.
"I just thought it was fun,"
she recalled. "They thought
I had a lot of energy and
they put me into classes. I
was like or 7 when I started
to do competitive gymnas-
"I just remember that I
never wanted to leave," she
said. "I was like, 'Dad, I
want to stay, I want to stay.'
I never wanted to go home.
I thought it was the coolest
thing in the world."
The younger American
Twister gymnasts mobbed
Locigno at a recent practice
after learning she commit-
ted to Bowling Green. The
university-bound gym-
nast smiled and posed for
pictures with the group
and, afterwards, reflected
on what the commitment
meant to her.
"It feels great that people
want to be like me when
they get older," she said.
"They look up to you and
it feels like a great accom-
plishment. It's not really

difficult being a role model
for them as long as you
know how to act and what
to do."
American Twisters head
coach Gary Anderson said
Locignio is a perfect role
model for the younger
"It automatically puts her
in a situation where the
younger kids look up to
her," he said. "They look
at her work habit and her
skill level. In fact, there
are times when we take the
little kids over and sit them
down and let them watch
Gina on beam because that
is her best event, and we
tell them to watch this. It
serves as an example to the
little kids."
Bowling Green State Uni-
versity head gymnastics
coach Kerrie Green be-
lieves Locigno has a lot to
offer the program. She is
one of four gymnasts that
Beach has signed for the
2011-2012 season. The
others are Jamilah Ali,
Chelsea Anderson and
Amanda Lievendag.
"Gina Locigno is solid on
all four events," Beach
said. "She is definitely a
strong uneven bar swinger.
She comes from a great
gym and a great coach,
Gary Anderson. We look
forward to adding her skills
to our program."
Locigno, who hopes to
major in exercise science,
nutrition or physical thera-
py, has won the all-around
championship at the Sun-
N-Surf Challenge as well

as the Tim Rand Invitational in 2010. She also finished
seventh in the all-around at the Florida State Champion-
The Boca gymnast is looking forward to the next chapter
in her life.
"I can't believe this is really happening," Locigno said. "I
just ordered my cap and gown and I will be graduating in
six months. It is definitely going to be strange when I go to
Bowling Green and walk on that campus, but it is a very
warm environment and I am looking forward to that."

Keep The Yellow Golf Shirt In

The Bag

By: George Gabriel

Another beautiful day, out
on the golf course, and
I'm feeling like a million
bucks wearing my bright
yellow golf shirt, and the
girl I want to meet, is just
a golf hole ahead of me.
There she goes, off the tee
box. Right down the mid-
dle of the fairway on num-
ber 2 hole. The last time I
was out here, she faded
it right into the bunker,
just next to my favorite
ball placement. I missed
my golden opportunity
to meet her at that time.
I pull hooked the ball on
the opposite side of the
Maybe we'll meet a cou-
ple holes down. She has to
come back down number
3, and I should be teeing
off number 2-tee box at
the same time. Maybe I'll
impress her with a beau-
tiful drive, straight and
long down the fairway.
Worst-case scenario will
be another long hook out
into her fairway this time.
I wonder if she'll stop and
watch me fly the trees, hit-
ting back to the green?
Here we go. I see that her
drive on number 3 landed
left side of the fairway. I
better tee this puppy up
and let it fly. If I'm go-
ing to impress her, now is
the time. With this bright
yellow golf shirt on, there
is no way that she will
not notice me. I'm sure
I'll stand out. This is my
golden opportunity.
Great golf shot happening

here! It is flying way out
of sight! I see her look-
ing over as the ball lands
and rolls. Wow! I think I
did it! All I have to do is
proudly walk down the
middle of the fairway. I
feel like a pro with this
yellow golf shirt on, tak-
ing the turn at the Mas-
ters. Now all I have to do
is keep a straight face, as
if it's routine, and walk
down the left side of the
middle. That would bring
me a little closer, without
having to yell, to say hi.
I better figure out quickly
what to say, just in case
she compliments me on a
nice golf shot.
Oh great! I hit it so far.
The foursome ahead of
me is yelling and wav-
ing. I completely forgot
to wait until they were out
of reach. How embarrass-
ing is this going to be? I

am the only golfer in my
group out on the fairway.
All my golf buddies are
on the other side of the
fairway. How do you try
to impress someone with
a great golf shot, only to
find out, the shot almost
hit someone? This is not
good. What's even worse?
I think her parents are
walking my way. Great!
Let's meet the parents!
Perfect timing! My bud-
dies need a hand on the
other side of the fairway
to look for a lost ball! It's a
good thing I carry an extra
shirt, just in case it rains. I
think I should change this
bright yellow golf shirt on
the opposite side of the
fairway. First impression
is going to have to wait.

LeBron James Must Stand with

the Miami Heat Not Above Them

Miami Heat head coach,
Erik Spoelstra, is not in the
hot seat ESPN is saying
he's in.
On the contrary, Heat presi-
dent Pat Riley has said time
and time again that Spoels-
tra is the right guy for the
One source went on to state
"Riley keeps saying 'Spoel-
stra's a good coach and he'll
grow into a great coach,'Ri-
ley said he got his coaching
break with the Los Angeles
Lakers around the same age
as Spoelstra got his."
Why would Riley fire a
coach that he himself hand-
picked to take over the Mi-
ami Heat bench?
Earlier this week, Los An-
geles Head Coach Phil Ja-
ckson spoke on the topic,
"The scenario that sits kind
of behind the scene, is that
eventually these guys that
were recruited Bosh and
James by Pat Riley and
Mickey Arrison, the owner,
are going to come in and
say, 'We feel you [Riley]
can do a better job coach-
ing the team. We came here
on the hopes that this would
work,' and whatever, I don't
know," Jackson said.

The only way I see Riley
coming back to coaching is
if Erick Spoelstra is demo-
ted to Riley's top assistant
in order to learn how to run
a star-studded team.
But would such a thing re-
ally happen?
Adrian Wojnarowski of Ya-
hoo Sports reported that for
the first time in his career,
LeBron is hearing a word
that he never really heard it
before -"no".
Erik Spoelstra is being the
type of coach Mike Brown
wasn't in LeBron's tenure
as a Cavalier. Everyone al-
ways gave him the "yes"
right away because he's
"the king" but here in Mi-
ami, he's simply another
player and he needs to un-
derstand that.
In Miami, we have a presi-
dent and an owner that think
"team" not "LeBron" first.
It looks as if LeBron doesn't
understand what he signed
up for-he signed up for the
MIAMI Heat, not the LeB-
want-in-south-beach Heat.
The funniest part is how
ESPN is promoting the idea
that Erik Spoelstra is pan-
icking and fearing for his

job. But truth be told, he's
been behaving in the oppo-
site way.
Spoelstra isn't running from
LeBron, he's running at him.
Contrary to popular belief,
Spoelstra is not afraid to
criticize superstars LeBron
James, Dwyane Wade and
Chris Bosh.
In fact, he's been hard on
them. Holding them ac-
countable for every little
"He's jumping on them,"
one source said. "If any-
thing, he's been too tough on
Erick Spoeltra, the guy
people are saying isn't "cut
out" for this job is being too
tough on LeBron?
Get over it.
If this was a Pat Riley team,
LeBron would probably
hate it right now.
Riley is known around the
league for his tough condi-
tioning, and refusal to take
anything from anyone.
If a player called out Riley
or worse bumped into him,
he would bench that player
no matter if it was Chris
Quinn or LeBron James,
just ask Antoine Walker.
