the roots of America as a

going to get into that, but
there is plenty of reason
to think that, at the very
least, Declaration of Inde-

Jefferson harbored serious
doubts about Christianity.
For example, he secretly

Rare 1920s bungalow-style Luff House

remains in danger of demolition

House, a rare survivor of an
era when bungalow-style
homes were common in
Florida, is still in danger of
being demolished, said of-
ficials from the Boca Raton
Historical Society.
"The Luff House property
is privately owned, and
the owners would like the
house removed from the
property," said Historical
Society Executive Director
Mary Csar. "They have of-
fered the house to the His-
torical Society; however,
the Society currently has
no funds for the cost of the
relocation of the house, a
new site for the house, the
necessary foundation and
infrastructure for the house,
nor restoration funds."
The home, located at 390
Palmetto Park Road, has
been vacant since January
2010, when developer Greg
Talbott lost the property
to foreclosure, said Csar.
She added that the current
owner, Pios Grande East
Palmetto Park Road, L.P.,
told the Society it doesn't
want to pay to maintain
the house and it wants the
building moved off the
property by the end of the
year. Officials estimate it
would cost about $175,000
to move it.

The structure remains in
danger of demolition if a
buyer and new site for the
house are not found.
Csar said the Historical So-
ciety "has received several
calls regarding the property
due to recent news articles;
however, there has been no
resolution as of yet."
"Although it would be eli-
gible for grant funds like
those provided in the past
by the Florida Bureau of
Historic Preservation, these
are limited and cannot be
counted on. The Historical
Society is seeking individu-
als interested in relocating
the house for private use or
funds to relocate the house
for community use. Inter-
ested parties may call us
for contact information on
the current owners." The
Society's phone number is
She said that since the
home has no historic desig-

nation, it can be torn down
at any time.
Pioneer residents Theodore
and Harriet Luff had the
house at 390 E. Palmetto
Park Road constructed
in the early 1920s. It is a
Florida interpretation of the
bungalow style, employing
coral rock on the porches
and chimneys.
Csar said "this type of bun-
galow, once fairly common,
is now an exceedingly rare
survivor in the state and
is literally unique in Boca
Raton today. As Palmetto
Park Road grew more com-
mercial, the structure was
occupied by a number of
retail businesses and was
home to community agen-
cies such as the Junior Ser-
vice League and the Boca
Raton Historical Society.
It has been a vital part of
downtown Boca Raton in
historic and modem times,

oldest surviving structures

Fine arts a welcome addition

to downtown Boca Raton

For years, I've been follo-
wing the efforts of Boca
Raton officials to bring a
new luster and attraction to
downtown Boca Raton.
There have been many ef-
forts over the years, but no-
thing seemed to catch fire.
So it was with some mea-
sure of satisfaction that my
wife and I visited the Fine
Arts show that took place
this past weekend at Royal
Palm Place.
It was basically a full house
on Saturday. And Jennifer
Ortega, one of the people
running the Boca Raton
Tribune booth at the event,
said that on Sunday, the
crowd was even larger. I
guess the weather was a lit-
tle better on Sunday. Satur-
day seemed to verge on rain
throughout the afternoon.
What we found amazing
was the number of people
who traveled many, many
miles to get here. Many
from the south, but I talked
to a man who came down
from Chicago and there was

a booth run by a gentleman
from Belgium. My wife
and I couldn't help noticing
a woman who brought her
wares down from Newport,
R.I., one of our old haunts.
These were not just painters
and sculptors, but people
who worked with a variety
of media - many of which I
can't even count. This was
a unique show - and my wi-
fe and I have taken in a lot
of art shows in our time.
The venue seemed just right,
set in a large parking lot with
plenty of room to move a-
round. Along the perimeter
were dining spots large and
small, vending anything
from coffee to pastries and
dinners. There were also
retail shops galore. It was
certainly a place to make a
full day of it.
I couldn't help thinking
of Jim and Marta Batma-
sian, owners of Royal Palm
Place, who have been wor-
king to put downtown Boca
Raton on the map by sche-
duling special events and

activities. They are the ones
who erected that statue of
Addison Mizner that stands
at the edge of the parking
lot, atop a performing arts
If Boca Raton could at-
tract crowds like this every
weekend, then revitalization
would be a snap.

News nuggets
Just a few observations a-
bout some of the things that
happened this past week.
It's been a busy week, and
we like that. We were so
busy, we missed the first
night of "American Idol."
But we did see Boca's Brett
Loewenstern, the 16-year-
old student at Spanish River
High who got through the
audition round with a pass
to the next stage of compe-
tition in Hollywood. Good
luck to you. Let's bring a
title back here to Florida!
It's really great to be back
working with the likes of
Ray Russotto, the caricatu-
re artist who has joined our

Boca Tribune "family." We
spent a lot of years working
together a few years ago,
and we've become close
My wife and I attended
the OPAL awards this past
weekend - and want to
thank Ben and Rosemary
Krieger for the invitation to
join the folks at their table.
It's always a pleasure.
I couldn't help noticing that
a lot of winners traced their
roots back to New York. I
don't know if that is signifi-
cant or just coincidental.
But now that both the New
England Patriots and New
York Jets have lost their ef-
forts to make it to the Su-
per Bowl this year, I guess
things are equal between
And one more thing. Don't
forget the Paul Todd con-
cert Sunday at 4 p.m. at
St. Matthew Church, 6090
Hypoluxo Road in Lake
Worth. Tickets are $20 each,
and, as I said in a previous

worth it.

SOPAL Award winners inspire

us to seek the American Dream

Thumb through the program
from last Saturday night's
OPAL (Outstanding People
and Leaders) Awards cere-
mony and you'll find one
page devoted to each award-
Those pages offer a thumb-
nail sketch of each person's
achievements. But you can
imagine the many, many
things that could not be in-
cluded for space reasons.
These are all exceptional
people who inspire us all to
seek the American Dream.
Most came from middle class
homes and families, but as
they grew, they developed a
burning desire to seek more.
While I don't want to single
out any one particular re-
cipient, I feel very much in
common with Marta Batma-
sian. She immigrated to the
United States from Turkey; I
came to the U.S. from Bra-
zil. We both worked hard to
build successful businesses.
After touching American
soil, Marta devoted herself to
education, business, politics
and community service. She
earned bachelors, masters and
PhD degrees, and she and her
husband created Investments
Limited, one of the largest
commercial real estate firms
in South Florida.
From the viewpoint of ano-
ther immigrant, I commend
Marta for her amazing ac-
complishments. Not only has
she become a notable busi-
ness woman, but she is also a
community activist and phi-
lanthropist. During her 27
years in Boca Raton, she has
been a member of 37 differ-

ent boards and commissions.
She continues to serve as a
leader of many groups.
It may have been a coinci-
dence, but President Obama,
in his State of the Union ad-
dress Tuesday night, empha-
sized the need to recognize
the good that immigrants
have done, and not just force
them out of the country be-
cause they may be undocu-
mented. Imagine what we
would have lost if Marta
Batmasian were told by the
government to return to her
native land.
If you look at all the OPAL
recipients, you can see how
each has contributed. Jerry
Fedele has spent more than
24 years in the healthcare
field. He is credited with
saving a major academic
hospital and three commu-
nity hospital affiliates from
what would have been the
largest healthcare bankrupt-
cy in US history. But more
important to our area, he has
stopped the financial losses
at Boca Raton Regional
Hospital and pulled the insti-
tution back from the brink of
fiscal disaster. Boca depends
on this hospital, and the
community, as a whole, sup-
ports it. It may be appropriate
to note that among his many
other accomplishments, Jer-
ry was valedictorian of his
class at Duquesne University
School of Law.
Emily Lilly, our wonderful
community resources and af-
fairs specialist for Boca Ra-
ton, has proven her worth by
talking the talk and walking
the walk. A former teacher

from upstate New York, she
has brought her expertise
and experience to Boca - and
the city is better off for it. If
you've ever been to an event
in Boca, you'll find Emily
there - having already taken
care of all the arrangements.
We can't say enough about
Flossy Keesely, who is a li-
ving legend at age 97. She
has dedicated her life to fine
arts and philanthropy, and
can be counted on to be first
in line to aid various com-
munity agencies. She has
her own non-profit organi-
zation, Flossy's Dream, and
been a major supporter of the
Rotary Club's Future Stars
competition and assists the
Rehabilitation Center for the
Handicapped and St. Jude's
Children's Hospital.
Dr. David Robbe, an edu-
cational institution at Boca
Raton High School, has ta-
ken students where few high
schoolers have gone before
- from Ground Zero in New
York to the USS Missouri
Memorial in Pearl Harbor.
He has a history of working
with brain-injured and au-
tistic children, and when he
isn't volunteering for com-
munity causes, he is a Bob-
cat athletic coach.
Jim and Arlene Sclafani have
truly realized the American
Dream by establishing the
Multi Image Group audio vi-
sual company. From a small
firm started in 1979, MIG
has grown to 95 employees.
We congratulate all of you
and thank you for your gen-
erosity and caring. Your a-
wards are truly deserved.

By Dr. Synesio Lyra, Jr.

rance of being anything

but very quickly people will
catch up with who we truly
are! We are not what oth-
ers think we are; we are far
from being what God wants
us to be; we are not what
we think others imagine us
to be; we are not who we,
ourselves, think we are!
Authenticity reveals the
shape and color of who
we truly are, for it must be
a quality of our individual
character. Webster defines
the word "authentic" as
"conforming to fact and
therefore worthy of trust,
reliance, or belief." This is
not an impossible goal. Our
daily task is to ascertain in
greater depth what we are
supposed to be and do! !
Nothing short of following a
clear design for our life will
ever do or satisfy our lon-
gings, giving us the tran-
quility we desperately need
in a broken and confusing
world. But because we of-
ten fail, we need to submit
ourselves to an "Extreme
Makeover" from time to
time so our being may re-
align itself with the purpos-

es for which we exist!
Our productivity in the
world, our job achieve-
ments, our most basic tasks
in life, will be adversely af-
fected if we lack authentic-
ity. Who wants to be viewed
as a "con" man? Who de-
sires to be considered a
fake? Yet, this is precisely
who we will appear to be
if there's not a continual
striving toward authenti-
city - matching our walk
with our talk!
Whatever we attempt to
accomplish in life can be
easily destroyed in a mo-
ment, if we don't watch
our conduct to maintain
it consistent with sound,
honest prescriptions. Lack
of authenticity can never
be fixed with band-aids,
scotch tape, or any other
form of patch-up from the
outside. No pill can be
swallowed to restore it to
Authenticity is an inside
job, and corrective mea-
sures applied toward mak-
ing it so, can only come
from within, out of genuine
conviction and a new de-
termination to live by the
highest standards. If it is
ever lost, it may be nearly
impossible to recapture it

in one's life, at least with
respect to those who in-
teract with us on a regular
Being authentic does not en-
tail "washing dirty clothes"
in front of many people. In
other words, it does not re-
quire our "confessions" to
other people in a display of
contrition which may not
necessarily be fully genu-
ine. Confession is always
good for the soul, but only
when it is made to God and
to a trusted confidant. Hon-
esty and sincerity must be
manifested in our attempt
to observe a consistent sen-
se of accountability!
Life is truly fulfilling when
we know that we are walk-
ing in the right path, perio-
dically checking the correct
map, making necessary cor-
rections along the way, and
recognizing that we are
making progress instead
of going contrary to the
prescribed direction. Many
people will notice better
and greater things happen-
ing in us and with us, which
will enable us to regain the
impact we desire to have in
their lives and in those of
many more!

Raising money for good causes a family tradition

for Josh Lukes, 16

By Skip Sheffield

kes smiles and says he is
just carrying on a family
This is quite true, but Lukes
is no ordinary 16-year-old.
On Monday, Jan. 31, he
will be honored at the an-
nual South Florida Lun-
cheon hosted by the United
States Holocaust Memorial
Museum of Washington,
D.C. at Boca West Country
Lukes headed a team of
volunteers that raised more
than $2,500 for the museum
this past Thanksgiving with
a day of football at Patch
Reef Park.
"About 150 people partic-
ipated, so they all deserve
credit," said Lukes mo-
destly. "My dad started a
family tradition of raising
money for charities every
year when I was just a little
kid. I took over six years
ago. My mother and sister
Lukes is a junior at St. An-
drew's School in the Inter-
national Baccalaureate pro-
gram instituted this year.
One of the requirements of
the IB program is that each
student undertake a two-
year research project and
submit a paper.
Lukes chose the doomed
MS St. Louis, a ship which
disembarked from Ham-
burg, Germany in 1939
with 937 German Jews
aboard, bound for Havana,
Cuba and what was thought
a safe haven. The voyage
proved to be a cruel Nazi

propaganda hoax when
Cuba refused entry of the
refugees, followed by the
USA. The ship was forced
to return to Europe, where
hundreds of the passengers
were killed. Ultimately on-
ly about 450 survived.
"I have a great-uncle, Henry
Redlich, who is a Holocaust
survivor," Lukes reveals.
"He lives here in West
Boca, and he has taught me
a lot about the Holocaust."
Lukes is just one of sev-
eral honored guests at the
luncheon, hosted by Arlene
Perlman and Lynn Sexton
of Boca Raton. Honorary
chair is Arlene Herson,
who chaired last year's lun-
cheon and is the museum's
National Chair of the Lega-
cy of Light Society.
Florida State Senator Maria
Sachs, Peter S. Sachs and
Elaine and Bernard Roberts
are luncheon vice chairs,
and for the second year in
a row WPTV Channel 5
newscaster Jim Sackett is
master of ceremonies. The
keynote address will be gi-
ven by Hannah Rosenthal,
U.S. State Department Spe-
cial Envoy to Monitor and
Combat Anti-Semitism.
"I got a call from Jack Kara-
ko, who invited me to the
luncheon," recounts Lukes.
"He is director of the South-
east Regional Office of the
United States Holocaust
Memorial Museum, which
is based here in Boca Ra-
ton. I told him it would be
an honor to be there."
Josh Lukes will attend with
his great-uncle. He and his
family intend to host an-

other Thanksgiving charity event in 2011. The recipient of
donations will again be the US Holocaust Memorial Mu-

Jake's Stone Crabs Plus

Fresh Fish Galore!

Boca's own Jake's Stone
Crabs has a menu of quality
offerings featuring a dozen
appetizers, six salads and
some thirty entrees, all at
quite reasonable pricing.
We sampled a she-crab
soup, creamy smooth, gen-
tle flavor with chunks of
delicious crab - then a Ba-
hamian chowder, very tasty
with a very little "bite" per-
fectly done flavor coming
Six plump oysters Rocke-
feller had a subtle, yet hear-
ty taste and were expertly
prepared as was a hugh
presentation of an unusual
dish of chilled Maryland
lump blue crabmeat and
gulf shrimp resting on a bed
of warm potato/onion hash
and served with a fine mus-
tard dill dressing - Do try it!
The appetizer portion is
a single large crab cake,
crusty "shell" and tender
flavorful meat therein- the
dinner portion being two of
these full flavor delights.
For those who enjoy Caesar
salads, we can recommend
Jake's highly...shards of
torn romaine with a dressing
rich in taste and texture -just
the perfect consistency.
Comments on the fresh
stone crabs...stones are a-
vailable, in season, in ser-
vings of 2 to 5 pieces, de-
pending on your choice of
medium to super colossal
sizes. They are crisp, full

of flavor and have a nice
creamy mustard sauce for
dipping - they are brought
in from the Keys daily. for
guaranteed freshness.
Two of Jake's Signature
Dishes - Bouillabaisse - a
large crock of sea scallops,
shrimp, white water clams,
grouper and other daily fish
offerings in a deep and fla-
vorful red broth with a hint
of spice including saffron,
garlic and? This French de-
light is enhanced by Jakes's
daily ingredient choice and
served with garlic toast
- a must try! To satisfy re-
quests for a fish fry - there
is Jake's panko encrusted
fish dish of shrimp, grou-
per, calamari and scallops
served with French fries
and coleslaw.
Steamed soft shell crabs
with rice, spinach and a
lemon butter sauce were
indeed soft, not crispy with
a slight crunch. It's a fine
tasting and filling dish.
The extensive entree list of-
fers most every local fish,
both Maine and Florida
lobsters, a " surf and turf'
plus filet mignon and NY
cut steaks with red wine
demiglace, sauteed mush-
rooms and roasted potatoes.
All fish are available plain
or with Jake's herb spice
and can be baked, broiled,
grilled, sauteed, blackened
or fried...your choice. All
have rice and house veg-

tables on the plate.
A note - if youngsters are in
your party, just ask owner
David Leschen to suggest
kid's favorites. He is crea-
tive and most helpful.
David has researched, de-
veloped and mastered his
seafood offerings over two
decades and this is evident
at this top quality restau-
Attention dessert lovers,
there is a rich, juicy and
creamy NY cheesecake,
an authentic and delicious
Key Lime pie wedge plus
- for chocoholics - a choco-
late bomb, a deep flavored
cake with shards of rich
chocolate inside - sweet en-
dings indeed!
Jake's has an extensive
wine menu to accompany
your entree choosing. Ask
for suggestions to enhance
your dining experience We
certainly enjoyed ours.
Jake's is open 5PM to 10PM
from Sunday thru Thurs-
day, till 11PM Friday and
Saturday. Seating 80 insi-
de and 70 more on patio,
Jake's Stone Crabs is loca-

By Skip Sheffield

Bad things happen in "All Good Things"

"All Good Things" is the
richly ironic title of a mov-
ie about very bad things
like extortion, racketeering
and murder.
"Good Things" is the fic-
tion feature debut of An-
drew Jarecki, maker of the
unsettling documentary
"Capturing the Friedmans"
in 2003. The story is based
on the real life drama of
Robert "Bobby" Durst, the
irresponsible, screw-up
eldest son of a prominent
New York real estate mag-
The Bobby Durst character
of David Marks is played
by Ryan Gosling. Daddy
Sanford Marks is played
by stage and screen great
Frank Langella.
The story begins in 1971
after David's mother has
met a violent death, of
which we learn more later.
Dressed in a tuxedo, David
performs an emergency
plumbing repair for Katie
(Kirsten Dunst), a pretty,
free-spirited coed and one
of his father's tenants.
The physical attraction is

mutual and strong, giv-
ing David direction to his
otherwise rudderless life.
Against his family's ob-
jections ("She's never go-
ing to be one of us," dad
sneers), David marries
Katie and they attempt to
carve a new, good life in
Vermont, running a health
food store called All Good
The idyllic period is short-
lived. Dad arrives from
New York in a chauffeured
limousine. He has become
a major landlord of seedy
peep shows and question-
able businesses in the pre-
cleaned up Times Square
area, and he demands that
David rejoin the family
business as a kind of bag
David protests weakly, and
much to Katie's dismay
they return to New York.
David quickly falls into
his father's shady business
dealings while Kate at-
tempts to better herself by
attending medical school.
Then she becomes preg-
nant and Bobby, to put it

mildly, is not happy.
Katie Marks disappeared
as did her real-life coun-
terpart in 1982. David
Marks is strongly suspect-
ed of foul play, but there
is no body and no hard
evidence. The story picks
up again in 2000 when
the case against David is
reopened. There is no dra-
matic conclusion to this
unsavory story of power,
corruption, greed and lust.
David Durst is still alive
and well and it has been
reported that he likes this
film. While the powerful
acting performances of
Ryan Gosling and Kirsten
Dunst cannot be denied,
the story is a real bummer,
man; the opposite of the
American Dream. * * $

"No Strings Attached" is
the opposite of a bummer.
It's a feel-good, R-rated
sexy romp about the power
of true romance over mere
animal attraction by direc-
tor Ivan Reitman ("Ghost-

Adam (Ashton Kutcher)
and Emma (Natalie Port-
man) are friends from
early teen years at sum-
mer camp. They keep on
bumping into each other
until they both end up in
Los Angeles in their early
20s. Adam is an aspiring
script writer and Emma is
working toward a medical
degree at a teaching hos-
pital. The mutual attrac-
tion that has been bubbling
under the surface bursts
forth in an erotic one-night
stand that leads to another
and another. In Elizabeth
Meriwether's witty script,
the couple's stereotypical
sexual roles are reversed.
Adam longs for cuddling
and commitment. Emma
wants slam, bam, thank
you m'am and back to
"No Strings" has an en-
tertaining supporting cast,
lead by Kevin Kline as
Adam's aging Lothario
movie-star dad Alvin.
British actress Ophelia Lo-
vibond amuses as Adam's

shallow ex-girlfriend and
dad's new flame. Rap-
per Ludicris shows he
has both acting and comic
chops as Adam's room-
mate Wallace. Lake Bell
is outstanding as Adam's
accommodating boss, who
develops an awkward, fun-
ny crush on him.
Perhaps because I went
into this with such low ex-
pectations I was pleasantly
surprised at the genuine
laughs amidst the raun-
chy material. "When Harry
Met Sally" and "500 Days
of Summer" said it better,
but "No Strings" contin-
ues Natalie Portman's role
as a formidable, sensuous
starlet. Pretty boy Ashton
Kutcher knows his limi-
tations, and he cheerfully
plays them to best advan-
tage as an incurable ro-
mantic. i i

Art enthusiasts turned out
in huge numbers for one
of Boca Museum of Art's
strongest set of exhibitions
in recentyears. "Cut! Cos-
tume and the Cinema" fea-
tures 43 costumes created
for period films. Museum
marketing director Bruce
Herman gave me a private
tour. He told me exhibition
co-curator Nancy Lawson

meticulous display! My
personal favorite was the
pink confection worn by
Emmy Rossum in "Phan-

Impressionism fans will
love "California Impres-
sionism: Paintings from
the Irvine Museum." This
is the first time the 60 mas-
terpieces have traveled
outside California.
My "Boca First List" is
getting longer by the min-
ute. Jean Stem, execu-
tive director of The Irvine
Museum, his wife, Linda
Stem, and James Irvine
Swinden, attended the
opening reception. Save
some stamina for the third
exhibition in the small-
est gallery because there's
nothing small about the
names on these walls!
"Romanticism to Modem-
ism: Graphic Masterpieces

from Piranesi to Picasso"
features 21 works by Pi-
casso, seven by Miro and
six by Goya to name just a
few! You'll probably need
two visits -- ah ha maybe

Building relationships

BI I irgiinia Cris

How to keep Love alive - at Any


For a family to be success-
ful, the relationship must
be on a firm basis. It must
be cohesive or it crumbles.
Just as it is important in
your personal life to esta-
blish good relationships, so
is it important for the life
of your business. Distrust,
disrespect, secrets, gossi-
ping and the like shake
the foundation. We can't
be all things to all people
but we can be team players.
Just as in families, the stan-
dards are set at the top and
filter down, so is it in busi-
ness. It all starts at the top!
When I walk into an office
and the receptionist is cold,
unfriendly or downright
nasty, I get a clue - the boss
pro-bably is, too.
The true relationship be-
tween an organization and
its clients actually starts
after the transaction is
completed. How well the
relationship proceeds is de-
termined by how it is man-
aged by the organization.
Ethics and honesty play
a major role in relation-
ship development. Always
remember, it is mo-re cost
effective to maintain exist-
ing clients than it is to find
new ones to replace them.
Retaining your customer
base is always a prio-rity.

Good relationships with
clients should not be under-
In a selling situation, for
example, it used to be that
the organization and buyer
sat on opposite sides of
the fence. Today, this has
largely changed to a part-
nering situation between
buyer and seller working
together to achieve their
mutual goals. Sellers to-
day recognize that a
buyer's failure with their
product/service will reflect
negatively on their perfor-
mance. Therefore, it be-
hooves the seller to take an
active role in helping the
buyer select the right prod-
uct the right equipment,
the right style.
Before the seller starts a
relationship with the buyer
she/he must understand
what the buyer wants in the
relationship. Buyers want
their sellers to be team
members and have a high
degree of ethics and integ-
rity. They want that com-
fort zone in the relation-
ship in knowing that the
seller will do as promised.
The relationship cannot
progress unless the seller
is able to be a problem
solver, provide the buyer
with service and satisfy the

buyer's perceived value.
The seller can ensure a
lasting relationship by try-
ing to make sure that each
and every transaction will
be mutually beneficial.
Strange as it may seem,
sometimes the best way
for the seller to establish
this trust and build a rela-
tionship is to solve a prob-
lem when she/he foresees
one that the buyer may
have with his/her prod-
uct/service; late delivery,
merchandise not received
as ordered or any area that
the company has not per-
formed as promised.
Statistically, more than 50
percent of marriages end
in the divorce courts. We
are living in a "me first"
society, want immediate
success, instant gratifica-
tion, all this, without be-
ing committed to making
things work! Maintaining
a successful relationship,
both personally and in
business, requires a will-
ingness to work at it.

your awareness that you are

Alan Greenspan, Chair-
man of the USA's Fed-
eral Reserve Bank said of
Americans in 1997, "I am
afraid that too many have
given in to the thinking of
irrational exuberance." An
assumption by definition is
"a proposition that is taken
for granted, as if it were
true based upon presuppo-
sition without preponder-
ance of the facts."
False assumptions can lead
to wrong conclusions, and
wrong conclusions can
lead to wrong actions. In
some cases, we can laugh
at the outcome of our false
assumptions. In other cas-
es, false assumptions can
be deadly.
"A professional carpet-
layer stepped back to sur-
vey a newly installed car-
pet. Reaching into his shirt
pocket for a cigarette, he
realized the pack was miss-
ing. At the same time he
noticed a lump under the
carpet in the middle of the
room, about the size of the
missing cigarette pack.

There was no way to re-
trieve his cigarette pack
from under the attached
carpet without ripping ev-
erything up and starting
over. Finally, he decided to
beat the object flat, thereby
destroying any evidence of
his mistake.
Gathering his tools, the
carpet layer walked out
to his truck. There on the
seat of his truck was the
mislaid pack of cigarette.
As he lit one up, the home-
owner hurried out of the
house and asked, "Hey,
have you seen my son's
gerbil?"(Braude's Trea-
sury of Wit and Humor,
Prentice-Hall, Englewood
Hills, NJ.)
Most of us are living with
some false assumptions.
Our parents, our teachers,
our culture, the media, all
have input into our lives.
And some of those inputs
are false assumptions.
For instance, many young
people have the false as-
sumption that a good mar-
riage is built on a diamond

ring, good feelings and
compatibility. Such false
assumptions lead to the
wrong conclusion, that
nothing else is needed to
build a good marriage.
And the result is passiv-
ity after marriage, which
often leads to disappoint-
ment, disillusionment and
even divorce.
On the other hand, those
who are married and ex-
perience a rewarding mar-
riage know that hard work,
forgiveness and self-sac-
rifice must be part of the
equation for a good mar-
riage. False assumptions
lead to wrong conclusions,
which lead to wrong ac-
All of us need to work very
hard to continually evalu-
ate our thought processes,
question our assumptions,
and research the facts be-
fore forming our opinions
and choosing a course of
action. Over the next few

How to properly prepare to

enter the divorce process

As matrimonial attorneys,
my colleagues and I deal
with the community's least
happy people on a day-to-
day basis. There is really
no part of divorce litigation
which one can describe as a
fun experience.
Months or years of unhap-
piness culminate with a de-
cision to admit failure to
achieve one of life's most
heartfelt endeavors, a happy
marriage, surrounded by suc-
cessful children and loving
Those of you who are in-
volved in the process, or
plan to become involved in
the process over the next few
months, know that the trip
will not be easy or inexpen-
sive. However, I know that
there is life after divorce,
after enjoying 33 years of a
loving second marriage. To
make the most out of your
divorce I suggest you take
the following recommenda-
1. Before starting, learn as
much as you can about Flor-
ida divorce law. There are
hundreds of online sources.
Reading Chapter 61 of the
Florida Statutes provides
a meaningful beginning. If
you can read a newspaper,
you can learn a lot by taking
an hour or two to read the
basic provisions about ali-
mony, child support, parent-
ing plans and distribution of
property. Knowing as much
as you can about the process
will prevent you from having

unrealistic expectations.
2. Retain an appropriate at-
torney for your case. Choose
an experienced attorney, but
one you can afford. Rates
go from $250 an hour to
over $500 an hour. You are
usually better off with an at-
torey who specializes only
in matrimonial law, in the
county where you live. He
or she will know the judges,
and the judges will know
them. While it is a good idea
to ask your friends of their
experiences with their at-
torney, but realize that their
case may be vastly different
from your case, and that they
may have been disappointed
because they had unrealistic
expectations. Hiring a Board
Certified Florida Matrimo-
nial Attorney will usually
insure that your counselor is
knowledgeable and prepared
to help you. You can find
many Board Certified Ma-
trimonial attorneys in Palm
Beach County on the web-
site of The Florida Bar.
3. Do not involve your chil-
dren in your divorce case, or
use access to your children
as a bargaining chip. There
are few cases in which the
reason for a divorce is to-
tally the fault of one of the
two adults involved. There
are no cases in which your
children caused the divorce.
Bringing your arrows against
your husband or wife to
the children will hurt them
more than it will help you.
If a judge finds out you have

been enlisting your children
on your side you will lose
your credibility in court. If
the judge does not like you,
you will lose.
4. Follow your attorney's
advice, while you continue
to work together. It would
be foolish to pay a profes-
sional, and then to ignore his
or her advice. You cannot
hope for a good result if you
resist helping your attorney
prepare your case. Expect to
have a lot of homework to
prepare and turn over to your
counsel during the discove-
ry phases of the case. You
will need to use basic math
skills to help to complete
your financial affidavit, upon
which alimony claims are
based. You must communi-
cate with your attorney, ans-
wering his or her questions,
and providing insight about
your spouse's business and
personal spending habits.
You and your lawyer must
become the better team.
5. Understand that while the-
re are a number of issues that
can require litigation in eve-
ry divorce case, not all are
equally important in every
case. Most cases eventually
settle as negotiations often
result in compromise. The
intent of the Florida divorce
law statute is to produce a
result which is fair to both
husband and wife. Do not
forget, there is life after di-

in Boca Raton that features
both City Furniture and As-

Innovative and "green" from

"This opening is truly about

sustainability - both econo-

said City Furniture Presi-
dent Keith Koenig. "Our
company's roots are in
South Florida, and we're
deeply committed to grow
with and help sustain this
region. We're pleased to
have generated more than
200 construction jobs and

Lynn's Women's Basketball Hits

the Turn in SSC

By Chad Beattie

versity's women's basket-
ball team hits the midway
point in Sunshine State
Conference play this week
with a pair of league games.
First on tap is the final SSC
contest before the turn, Rol-
lins on Wednesday night,
before starting the back-end
of play at Eckerd on Satur-
day afternoon. The Fighting
Knights are 8-9 overall and
2-5 in the SSC.
Following her first score-
less outing in a Blue &
White uniform at Florida
Southern, Chelsea Patter-
son has upped her scoring
output. The senior point
guard led LU in scoring
with 17 points in a victory
against Nova Southeastern
and added 12 more in a heart-
breaking last-second loss
at Barry. She leads Lynn
with 15.0 points per game
on 44.6% shooting, includ-
ing 30.9% from three-point
range and 73.5% from the
free-throw line.
Marquis Lee continues to
be a consistent threat on

both the offensive and de-
fensive ends. Coming into
the 2010-11 season avera-
ging five points and 4.1
rebounds per game, the ju-
nior swing player is second
the squad at 12.8 ppg while
leading LU with 6.2 boards
an outing.
Tashina Bailey has also
come along on the defen-
sive side, leading the team
with 29 blocks and ranking
fourth in the SSC. At her
current pace, the sopho-
more out of Coral Springs,
Fla., will swat 44 shots,
which would be the fifth
most in a single season at
A split last week dropped
No. 16 Rollins' record to
16-3 overall and 4-3 in SSC
play. Since opening the
season 12-0, the Tars have
gone 4-3. Rollins brings a
24-3 all-time record against
Lynn into Wednesday's
match-up, which includes
a 69-67 overtime loss at the
de Hoemle Center last year.
Two players are scoring in
double-figures, led by Kris-
tina Mingos at 11.2 ppg
and followed by Amber

Heistan with 10.4 ppg. As a
team Rollins is scoring 74
points per contest on 43%
shooting while holding op-
ponents to 54.1 points on
35.8% shooting.
Squaring off against Palm
Beach Atlantic on Wednes-
day, Eckerd (10-7, 4-4 SSC)
will try for the season-
sweep against Lynn on
Sa-turday. A 69-53 victory
on December 11 moved the
Tritons to 10-19 all-time
against the Knights and
snapped a four-game los-
ing streak at the de Hoemle
Center. Ashley Lutz and
Kati Rausberg are neck-
and-neck in scoring, aver-
aging 11.9 and 11.8 points,
respectively. Tijana Brdar
is one of three players in the
SSC averaging 2.0 blocks a
game while Krystal Char-
gles is second on the team
with 24 swats.
Tip-off for Wednesday's
game is set for 5:30 p.m.
and Saturday's meeting is
slated to begin at 2 p.m.
Fans can follow all of the
action live this week by
logging on to www.Lyn- and

Travelling golfers want to play

the better courses

By: Suzanne Lenaerts

Among the hundreds of
thousands of golfers in the
world, many are avid tra-
vellers. They like to com-
bine holidays, weekend
breaks and business trips
with a chance to play the
best courses in their chosen
destinations. Great courses
act like magnets to discern-
ing golfers. Poor quality
courses and facilities are not
what travelling golfers are
typically looking for - al-
though value for money is
often a consideration.
It is surprisingly difficult
however, for travelling gol-
fers to identify the best areas
for golfing breaks, which
courses to play when they
get there, and what to ex-
pect from any particular
course. Most of the avail-
able guides (books) contain
purely factual information
and give the golfer little idea
of the quality of the courses,
or which courses will give
them the best "golfing day-
out. Distinctively different
from golf guides mentioned
above, are large, glossy, cof-
fee-table books, that might
delve into very considerable
detail on a few "blue-chip"
courses - but are far from
ideal for planning and book-
ing golfing trips or holidays.
Many online golf guides
display all golf courses but
fail to answer key questions
for golfers. Travel sites list
only those golf clubs and
hotels with which they have
commercial arrangements.
Still other sites show only
the very top courses or fo-
cus on a limited geography.
Travelling golfers often
want to play the better
courses in an area, and need
a reliable rating system,

contact details and infor-
mation about what they'll
find when they get there.
com sets out to remedy
these information gaps. The
online database covers cur-
rently 750 top golf courses
situated in UK & Ireland,
Belgium, Netherlands,
France, Italy, Spain, Portu-
gal, Sweden, South Africa,
Australia, New Zealand
and some popular U.S. golf
areas. Site visitors can find
courses by name, by geo-
graphic region or by near-
est city. Each golf course is
rated and described, giving
the golfer an impression
of the quality and "ambi-
ence" of the selected golf-
ing destination.With a five-
point rating scale based on
course condition, layout and
surrounding s,Where2Golf.
com enables golfers to dis-
cover hidden gems and

to choose a new course to
play based on how its rating
