Ever wonder where all those names for cooking pasta come from? Carbon-ara comes from the Italian word for "coal," probably because of the black pepper added to it. Primavera is from "springtime," in reference to all its veggies, just as marinara refers to seafood. Amatrici-ana comes from the town of Amatrice, and puttan-esca is from Naples slang for streetwalkers.

County delays Palmetto Park widening after Boca Council, citizens object
By Dale M. King
BOCA RATON - They say you can't fight City Hall.
But it appears Boca Raton City Hall can fight the Palm Beach County Governmental Center � and with some measure of success.
Opposition from Boca residents, the mayor and City County to the county's plan to widen Palmetto Park Road to as many as eight lanes in some areas has slowed, or potentially halted, a county plan to expand the roadway. County Commissioners recently voted to reconsider those plans rather than move forward with them now.
In the meantime, Mayor Susan Whelchel, her four colleagues on council and many homeowners in the Palmetto Park Road area all objected to the proposal when County Engineer George Webb attended a council workshop meeting to explain "why the county feels it is necessary."
He said the road work would reduce waiting time at the traffic light at Military Trail and Palmetto Park Road. He said the time is right to fund the project since the state is offered to split the expected $7 construction cost 50-50.
Council members generally said it isn't worth $7 million to help rush hour
drivers gain about a half-minute in getting through the light at Military and Palmetto. Deputy Mayor Susan Haynie was also adamant that an eight-lane road should not pass through a largely residential area.
Besides, said Webb, the project would not fix the problem caused by a glut of traffic at the busy intersection. It would improve the flow 20 to 25 percent, he said. But Haynie noted that "the level of service is currently rated F. With the improvements, it would still be rated F." She also pointed out that Webb's figures were "peak hour numbers." Councilwoman Constance Scott agreed with Haynie, as did Councilman Anthony Majhess. Councilman Mike Mullaugh said he could not support the project unless it would bring a turnpike exit to Palmetto Park Road. Webb said it would not. "There's not that much potential to justify do-
ing the project now," said Mullaugh.
"This project will not fix the problem," said Mayor Susan Whelchel. Then, she turned to the large audience in the City Council chamber and said, "What troubles me is that we're not the final say. It moves from here to the County Commission chamber." During his appearance before the council, Webb explained that the section of Palmetto Park Road from a half-mile west of Military Trail to Interstate 95 would be widened. This would be done by extending the westbound exit lane and the eastbound entrance lane from 95 to a drop-off just west of St. Andrews Boulevard. Webb also said the expansion is needed to accommodate project growth downtown.
Architect Richard K. Brooks, representing residents of Via Verde, said the road doesn't require widening because traffic there has actually declined Continued on page 5

Three fraud suspects arrested after allegedly trying to run over cop
Erwin Williams
BOCA RATON - Boca Raton Police arrested three fraud suspects April 20 at the Chase Bank on North Federal Highway. Additional charges were
Gerald Armstrong brought for allegedly trying to run down an officer with a car.
They were identified as Erwin Williams, 25, and Gerald Armstrong:, 20, both of
Aja Stimers
Fort Lauderdale and Aja Stimers, 32, of Pompano Beach.
Public Information Officer Sandra Boonenberg said Williams was charged with
identity theft, uttering a forged document, grand theft, and two counts of resisting arrest without violence. Armstrong was charged with aggravated assault on a police officer, organized scheme to defraud, aggravated fleeing and eluding, and resisting arrest without violence. Stimers was charged with uttering a forged document, identity theft, and grand theft.
Officers responded to the bank about 3 p.m. when a teller said a female in the drive-through presented a driver's license that did not
belong to her and a withdrawal slip with a signature that did not match the one on file.
When officers arrived, they approached the vehicle and made contact with the driver, identified as Aja Stimers. A male, who was lying down in the back seat, got out of the rear passenger door and ran. One officer chased the suspect to a nearby condominium complex. Another male driving a Chevrolet Cobalt picked up the suspect. Officers tried to stop the Cobalt before it exited the complex, but
the driver drove directly toward the officer at a high rate of speed, forcing the officer to jump out of the way to avoid being struck, Boonenberg said. A second officer saw the vehicle as it exited the complex and tried to pull it over. The driver of the Cobalt continued to accelerate away from the officer, heading south on Federal Highway. A short distance away, the suspect vehicle crashed into a concrete pole and both suspects fled on foot.
The three were arrested durine; a search of the area.
Audit sought byAbrams clears ineligible county health plan enrollees, saves $1.3 million
BOCA RATON - Based on an audit requested by District 4 County Commissioner Steven Abrams, more than 300 people found to be ineligible to receive county health care coverage have been cleared from the books, saving taxpayers $1.3 million, the commissioner said in a news release.
In 2010, Abrams requested Risk Management staff perform an audit of the county's self-insured health plan to determine dependent eligibility. More than 5,149 dependents were enrolled in the plan at the time of the audit, and ap-
proximately 325 (6.5 percent) of them were found to be ineligible. "I realized that we had an opportunity to reduce unwarranted spending," said Abrams. "As I review this year's budget, I will be looking for similar ways to cut costs countywide," he added.
The audit was mandatory for all Board of County Commission employees, who were required to provide documentation of their dependents' status, such as birth certificates, tax records, and marriage licenses, to verify that their dependents were eligible to
continue to receive health
Abrams said the Risk Management Division will continue to ensure dependents are eligible for plans during the open enrollment and hiring process and there are plans to repeat this exercise periodically.
County delays Palmetto Park widening...
Continued from page 4
10 to 15 percent since 2006.
Brooks said the county "would be spending money on a failed road to make it fail less."
If the state money is not used at Palmetto Park Road, it will likely be directed to other projects. It would not be unspent, said Webb.
The County Commission last week agreed to hold off on choosing a contractor for the project. The commission plans to discuss whether to proceed with the road work at its May 3 meeting.

Hanging out with some marvelous musk makers
During a rare moment of contemplation, it occurred to me that my wife and I have been in the presence of some great music makers lately. I suppose it helped that we were on a cruise ship in the Caribbean for a week, but, actually, most of the singers, writers and performers were met were right here in Boca - or not far away. I have to thank Debbie A-brams for pointing us toward Dennis Lambert, a man I did not know until I met him a few months ago at a reception. Dennis is a Boca resident wrote many hit songs back in the 1970s and 1980s - and also produced some hit albums. He has compiled his songs into a show that he is taking on the road for a national tour. But he and some of the famed performers who made hits out of those songs put on a concert recently at Florida Atlantic University. It was a great night.
I was particularly intrigued by the appearance of soul music giants Tavares. My music appreciation was honed in the 1960s, but I was a big fan of Tavares, who came along in the 70s. Two of their songs were of particular interest to me - and they performed both -"More than a woman" and "Heaven must be missing an angel."
Lambert - who is no slouch in the music department himself - brought with him Mickey Thomas, the lead singer of Starship, as well as pop legend Peter Beckett, lead singer of Player and a featured member of the Little River Band. Both are wonderful performers. When the former Jefferson Airplane morphed into Jefferson Starship and then just Starship, I kind of lost track of the group. That night at FAU, Beckett recalled the days of Jefferson Airplane's Grace Slick, who I think, was one of two 1960s female perform-
ers who had the most powerful voice I'd ever heard. (The other was Mama
Peter Beckett graced that night's performance with a couple of exceptional numbers.
I know I have talked a lot about performers from the latter part of the 20th century. But while on the cruise, my wife and I heard a performance by a group called "Mosaic," who won their honors on the contemporary TV show, "America's Got Talent."
Mosaic is a five-man group that performs without instrumental music. They create all the tunes and tones vocally. I don't know who did the bass part, but I could feel the vibration in the auditorium seat on the ship. They are really fantastic. One performer sang a solo from an Italian opera. They also did some barbershop harmony tunes.
I suppose I should also
mention that while on board the ship, we also saw the entire musical, "Hair-spray." I'd heard a lot about the show, but didn't realize we would see the entire production. "Hairspray" is supposed to be set in 1962, but the songs were written later, in the style of that era. I have to give the cast of that Royal Caribbean-produced show two thumbs up for great music, acting, and energy.
I'd be remiss if I didn't give Flossy Keesely credit for sponsoring another great musical show at Mizner Park Amphitheater this year, on April 15 - just 3 days before her 97th birthday. Everyone did an excellent job, but amazing, 9-year-old Brianna Kahane gave everyone on stage a run for their money with great classical violin tunes. I can't help thinking there is great music all around, and great performers not far away, if we just take a moment away from our busy schedules - and listen.

Who out there is reading the
Let me ask you a question. Who out there is reading the newspaper? I hope this doesn't sound silly. Obviously if you are reading this column, you are reading the newspaper - at least one small part of it.
When we launched the Boca Raton Tribune website and newspaper more than a year ago, we promised to be your closest neighbor. We wanted these media to be your forums for comment, questions and the presentation of your own personal stories. We get a lot of comments about the paper, and thankfully, most of them are good. But we haven't gotten a lot of response when we try to serve the community with special promotions and campaigns. I was surprised and a little frustrated that no one called up to take part in our Mother's Day remembrance page. I can't believe that no one in the Boca Raton area wanted to put a notice in the paper offering love and greetings to his or her mom. Don't forget, we don't just cover Boca Raton. We have online editions of the Delray Beach Tribune and the Coral Springs Tribune. We got no response from that area either.
We've talked before about how we want to be part of your community, how we want to publicize news items and pictures that other news media don't. And, of course, we seek the support of advertisers so we can keep this operation going and provide news for everyone. In the past, we've discussed the fact that news may be free, but there are costs associated with preparing and delivering news. When we produce an advertising campaign, we want to make sure it works - because we want businesses to succeed -like we want the Boca Raton Tribune to succeed. We can relate to small businesses - because we are a small business. And we can relate to individuals, because we all live in or near the community and we have the same responsibilities that other people have.
But unless we hear from you, the readers of our website and print newspaper, we won't know what direction to take as we continue to develop our network.
We don't want to operate in a vacuum. We hold staff meetings periodically to come up with ideas, but we need your input.
We sponsored a holiday decorations contest at the end of 2010, but there was little response. We try to take note of special events and holidays. We presented a very nice cover last week with good wishes for a Happy Easter and Happy Passover. With Mother's Day coming up, we wanted to give our readers a method of honoring their moms. We plan to do it again for Father's Day, and another for Memorial Day, where we invite citizens to send us stories and photos of loved ones overseas now, or those who have fought in previous wars. We will also be on the line covering local events. If we're missing something, we want to know about it. Let us know about it up front. Often, we get phone calls or emails saying, "Why didn't you cover such-and-such an event?" Our response. "Nobody told us about it."
That's embarrassing. It's our job to know what's happening, and we want your help.
So, if you are reading our paper, please let us know what you feel about it - and help us keep our promise to be "Your Closest Neighbor."

Growing Up With Books!
One of the fondest recollections I have of my childhood and youth pertains to the many occasions when family and friends instilled in me a love for reading. It is also one of the greatest blessings of my younger years, and a foundational element of the life that I've been enjoying since then. Reading became a healthy habit I can't ever let go! I still remember some of my childhood birthdays, and several celebrations a-round the Christmas tree when, among other gifts, books were a significant part of what others donated to me. Engraved in my mind is also the comment I heard more than once as a youngster, that when people give you a book, they recognize you as intelligent. And because I wanted to become and remain intelligent, I came to cherish books since that time - a custom which hasn't left me ever since; an experience that increas-
ingly confirms the value of good reading. Nobel prize laureate, and holocaust survivor, Elie Wiesel, went as far as saying that his idea of Hell is that of a place where there are no books. Brazilian intellectual and bibliophile, Jose Mindlin, also declared that "in a world in which books ceased to exist, I would not like to live." I'm sure that similar are the sentiments of many others who have developed, or are still pursuing, the practice of good reading, as they acknowledge its multiple benefits for life and work! American psychologist and prolific author, Dennis Waitley insightfully added: "Books are the fountain of wisdom. They take us where we can't go in person."
Growing up with books does not merely refer to a chronological pattern. It reflects the importance of advancing in life, at all age levels, with the manifold
benefits which good reading always provides. It is a tonic, it is pure nurture! It is also therapy for many a distressed soul which can find encouragement and pointers to new, healthy directions one may follow at different crossroads in life! Indeed, to quote Jose Mindlin again, "life is better for one who reads than for anyone who doesn't." No human mind can ever remain empty for too long; there's an inbuilt curiosity in every human being, driving one in search of satisfying, nurturing thoughts which books can and do provide. If one does not fill the mind with healthy thoughts, someone else will intrude, often instilling wrong suggestions and erroneous ideas. Harvard philosopher, Robert Nozick, commented that "we are not identical with the books we read, but neither would we be the same without them."
Dr. Synesio Lyra, Jr. is a Florida resident who, for many years, was a professor at the post-graduate level. He is a writer, a sought-after conference speaker, a man who lived in five continents of the world, having received his education in four of them. When he resided in southern California, he wrote a weekly column for the daily "Anaheim Bulletin, " which was carried for about six years, until he moved to south Florida.

Intentional Moms celebrate Mother's Day together
Story, photos by Barbara McCormick
BOCA RATON - Moms, together with their family and friends, recently celebrated the Annual Mother's Day Luncheon at the Polo Club in Boca Raton. The diverse group included unwed moms, everyday moms, step moms, single moms, moms of adult children and mentor moms. Catherine Hickem, LCSW, founder, author and teacher, was the keynote speaker. She said the goal of the organization is to continue to offer courses and counseling to empower moms and impact their children. An endorsement for Catherine read, "Catherine has found a way to educate parents on how to improve their parenting skills in a very encouraging manner. She teaches us, through
simple steps, the ways in which to become a better parent without making us feel like we have already failed at life's most important job."
Thanks were given to the luncheon committee members, Debra Pronyk, Tonya Andrews, Lynn Van Lenten, Holly Schuttler, and Jerilyn Ewton. Board Members contributing to the success of the luncheon were Jeanette Lewis, Jerilyn Ewton, Holly Schuttler and Dorinda Spahr.
Appreciation was also expressed to Gold Corporate Sponsors Ronnie and Jerily Ewton, Tandy Robinson, and RodSquad. Silver Corporate sponsors included Anita Detert and JD Gilbert & Company. For more information contact Intentional Moms at

Boca High social science feather named best in Palm
Beath County
BOCA RATON-Jon-na Shutowick, a social science teacher at Boca Raton Community High School, was named Palm Beach County Social Science Teacher of the Year. "Jonna Shutowick is empathetic, energetic, inspiring, courageous, versatile, and devoted. She has pioneered new curricula, led learning teams, and conquered every challenge with pure excellence," said Boca High
Principal Dr. Geoff McKee Thankfully, he said, Shutowick "accepted the
tation to lead the Bobcat Achievement Team of World History teachers assigned to improving writing skills. She motivated, equipped, and guided these teachers in leading 97 percent of our students to proficiency. This was the highest percent of any Palm Beach County high school, including Dreyfoos and Suncoast, in 2010." Even more impressive, he noted, Boca High students earned 109 perfect sixes, the highest total ever earned in Florida.
Having pioneered the curriculum for a women's studies course, Shutowick was the first teacher invited to develop curriculum for AICE International History. This course had no text book and had never been taught in the district. Consequently, Shutowick's "wide-ranging, well-developed skills and vision have been immensely valuable," said McKee. "This course is especially important in that it prepares students for an exam which may de-

Jeb Bush, Lee Woodruff to speak at Lynn's 2011 commencement
Jeb Bush
BOCA RATON - On Friday, May 13, from 6:30 to 8 p.m., and on Saturday, May 14, from 10 a.m. to noon, hundreds of undergraduate and graduate students at Lynn University will celebrate the successful completion of their academic programs at Lynn's 46th commencement ceremonies. The processionals for each ceremony will begin about 15 minutes before the ceremony start time at the Count and Countess de Hoernle Sports and Cul-
tural Center. Former Florida Governor Jeb Bush will address the hundreds of students walking in Saturday's day undergraduate ceremony. Bush served as Florida's 43rd governor for two terms from 1999 to 2007.
Friday night's evening undergraduate and graduate commencement speaker, Lee Woodruff, is a broadcaster, author and active blogger. She is perhaps best known as the author of the best-selling book, "In an Instant." The critically acclaimed book details the struggles and ultimate recovery of her husband, ABC news anchor Bob Woodruff, from a traumatic brain injury he suffered after we was struck by a roadside bomb while covering the Iraq War in 2006
After Bush's address Saturday, the university will present honorary degrees to Benjamin Olewine III and Harold and Mary Perper. They join other honorary degree holders including CNN's chief medical correspondent, Sanjay Gupta, former NBC newsman and economics reporter Irving R. Levine, Countess Henrietta de Hoernle and Christine and Eugene Lynn, among o-thers.
The event is not open to the public.

On a personal note, Principal McKee is especially grateful that she accepted the challenge of teaching this course for the sake of all of her students, including Dr. McKee's son, a Boca High sophomore. Witnessing Shutowick's work from a father's perspective has given him a new dimension of appreciation for her teaching.
Shutowick writes the "On the Bright Side" column in the Happy Herald. She is a natural encourager, inspiring colleagues and students every day.

Students turn recycling bins into works of
art for Earth Day
In one of the many celebrations of Earth Day April 22, the Palm Beach County School District partnered with its new recycling vendor, Southern Waste Systems (SWS), to provide seven teams of talented, local high school students that have transformed plain recycling containers into works of art along the mile-long stretch on PGA Boulevard that makes up PGA Commons.
Students from Palm Beach Gardens High School, William T. Dwyer High School, Alexander Drey-foos School of the Arts, Spanish River High School, Pahokee Middle Senior High School, John I. Leonard High School and Santa-luces High School took part in the "Recycling is an Art" event this past weekend. "This is a very powerful, visual way for students to express the notions of
environmental stewardship and civic responsibility, which are really what Earth Day is all about," said the District's Recycling and Sustainability Coordinator, Christina Crespo. "Along with the $1,000 first place, second prize was $500 and third prize was $250," said Patti Hamilton, spokeswoman for Southern Waste Systems. Prizes donated by PGA Commons, SWS and Venue Marketing Group were awarded April 22 at the "Recycling is an Art" celebration. Log on to http://www. for more information. The School District's goal is to prepare all students for academic success. Community partnerships such as these strengthen the organization and advance student achievement.

Three stars to be added May 3 at Boca Raton's 'Walk of Recognition'
BOCA RATON - The annual Walk of Recognition, presented by the Boca Raton Historical Society, will add three new stars at a ceremony on Tuesday, May 3, at 5:30 p.m., under the Mizner statue at Royal Palm Place.
The new stars are for Al-yce Erickson, Mary and Harold Perper, and Jamie Snyder, who have demonstrated a significant long-term commitment to serving in the interest of Boca Raton and have enriched the lives of local citizens. Alyce Erickson has immersed herself in the Boca Raton community since the early 1980s. Many organizations have benefited
from her involvement and leadership: the Children's Museum, Lynn University, American Red Cross, Florida Symphonic Pops, Boca Raton Museum of Art, FAU, and the National Society of Arts and Letters, for which she started the Distinguished Young Artist Award for a worthy student in the arts. In 2009, she was awarded the Junior League of Boca Raton Woman Volunteer of the Year Award. Mary and Harold Perper have supported numerous charitable organizations throughout the city of Boca Raton. Mary Perper is a longtime hospital volunteer and Harold serves on
'Walk of Recognition " granite star in honor of Elaine J. Wold, who was induded into Boca's Walk of Recognition in 2008
the Boca Raton Museum port of Hospice by the Sea,
of Art Foundation Board, and they continue to make donations to the hospital and museum.
Recently the Perpers funded the "mildly ill clinic" at Florence Fuller Child Development Center; they provide continuous sup-
and they have been longtime friends and benefactors of Lynn University. Jamie Snyder is known primarily for her leadership and vision for downtown redevelopment in the 1980s and early 1990s. As chairman of the Boca Ra-
ton Community Redevelopment Agency, Jamie's vision shaped downtown as we know it. She led the redevelopment of Sanborn Square, the adoption of the Beautification Plan in the mid-1980s, new design guidelines in the late 1980s, and she was the driving force behind Mizner Park. In addition, Jamie served as president of the Boca Raton Historical Society and continues as an honorary board member; she is also a member of the Junior League of Boca Raton. Instituted in 1997, the Walk of Recognition a-ward has been presented to 70 deserving members of the community. Each
inductee's name is inscribed in a black granite plaque, which is set into a commemorative monument featuring the mission of the program beneath the Mizner statue in Royal Palm Place. The plaques are underwritten by Marta Batmasian as part of her commitment to the community.
The Boca Raton Historical Society (BRHS) is a nonprofit membership organization dedicated to collecting, preserving, and presenting information relevant to the past and evolving history of Boca Raton, and to maintaining a visible role in education and advocacy of historic preservation.

Florida's biggest music and arts festival rocks WPB April 27-May I
By Skip Sheffield
WEST PALM BEACH -Hey kids, what time it is? It's SunFest Time! The fun began April 27 and continues through Sunday, May 1 on the waterfront in downtown West Palm Beach. Now in its 29th year, SunFest is far and away Florida's largest music and arts festival. As it has grown, SunFest has broadened its base from jazz and art festival to jazz, rock, country, folk, Latin reggae and whatever else people are listening to, while appealing to an audience growing younger.
That younger audience was reflected in the opening night lineup. Headlining were Pennsylvania ska-punk band Sublime with Rome Ramirez and Rolling Stone's 2009 "Band to Watch," the Avett Brothers folk-rock group. The action started early with a 5:15 p.m. workshop on the BAK and continued at 6:30 with Bobby Lee Rodgers and St. Cloud, Fla. reggae group Super villains at 7:15 (BAS).
For something completely different, we have Australian Christian contemporary artist Brooke Fraser headlining at 7 p.m. Thursday (BAS), followed by the incredible vocalist Cee Lo Green at 8 p.m. TKS and ever-popular singer-songwriter Jason Mraz at 8:45 BAS.
An additional smallest stage is added Friday through Sunday: the FPL Stage.
Rock and Roll Hall of Fame members Earth, Wind & Fire perform at 7:45p.m. Sunday at SunFest Orlando alternative rock- vals," says drummer Chris
Culos. "SunFest has such a wide variety of music it is a treat for the musicians as well as the fans, who can be much closer to us. We are really looking forward to it."
Classic Australian rock trio Sick Puppies hits FPL at 3 p.m. Sunday. Jeff Beck, the guitarist's guitarist, plays his complex musical compositions at 7 p.m. TKS. Slick electric pop group Neon Trees play their fresh sounds at 7:30 p.m. FPL. For R&B fans, Rock and Roll Hall of Fame members Earth, Wind & Fire make their smooth sounds at 7:45 BAS for a fitting finale before a big fireworks show closes SunFest 2011. Tickets are $34 a day adult ($10 kids 6-12), or $51 two days ($17 kids) or $66 all five days ($22 kids). Senior one-day tickets are $20 at the gate only.
Call 800-SUNFEST (800-786-3378) or go to www. for more information.
Amberlin may be heard at 7:15 p.m. BAS. Blues great Gregg Allman growls at 9:15 p.m. TKS and contemporary punk rockers Taking Back Sunday play a clean-up set at 9:30 p.m. BAS.
The music starts at 12:15 p.m. Saturday with The Gallery (TKS) and Tribal Seeds 12:45 BAS. The 2010 sensation Never Say Never is at 2 p.m. TKS and 1990s favorites Toad the Wet Sprocket ride again at 2:45 p.m. FPL. Reggae great Ziggy Marley jams out at 3:30 p.m. BAS. From the Dominican Republic Prince Royce performs at 8:30 p.m. FPL. Saturday's final acts are classic rockers Styx at 9 p.m. TKS and progressive rock duo MGMT at 9:30 p.m. BAS.
Maryland Jam band and college favorites O.A.R. (Of a Revolution) make their SunFest debut at 2:30 p.m. Sunday BAS. "We love outdoor festi-

They say location is everything. And you can bet your bottom dollar that Carole Middleton knew about this spatial relationship when she urged her daughter to attend the University of St. Andrews in Scotland. History has a small window in this Royal Fairy Tale. Kate met William at school, they become friends and the next thing you know, they were living together (some say it had a lot to do with the see-through shift she modeled in a charity fashion show). But we all know that it was probably her shining personality that drew in the most eligible bachelor since time immemoriam. Let's face it, William is a good catch. He had a loving mother, a doting dad (albeit with giant ears and a history of infidelity) and a giant castle to roam about at his leisure. He will inherit the throne at Buckingham Palace someday and become a King. Even if he doesn't have to wear a regal crown he does have excellent contacts and a chance to parlay his influence at whatever he sees fit.
William is also heir to the Balmoral Estate, which is 49,000 acres (eat your heart out, Hamptonites) and servants at his disposal. But despite this Royal pedigree William seems like a pretty decent guy.
Which makes Kate Middle-ton the envy of women everywhere (even in Great Neck). She will never have to pay an electric bill

or change cell phone carriers because her monthly charge went up. She will never have angst trying to get a dinner reservation or a hotel spa service. And chances are she will never have to power shop to find the perfect couch or TV stand.
She will, however, hold up trophies, perhaps boil a few noodles and stand around looking pretty and compassionate. In exchange for that inconvenience, she will have a lady in waiting (whatever that is), a house full of servants (when and if she wants them) and jewels fit for a Queen.
And that makes most of us in awe of a woman who can snag a nice guy who just happens to be a prince (to someone other than his mother).
When I think of what makes most of us gleeful, it all seems so banal. St. Barts, fey. Aspen in December, who needs it? This woman has it all - love, money, emotional and political support and very large closets. Who wouldn't trade that for their finest cashmere sweaters or weekly therapy sessions? Of course, Kate has to be seen in the proper light at all times. She will have to don spectacular hats
and wear demure suits and dresses. But she won't have to worry about alterations or matching shoes. And, she will have a dozen or more people to shop for her and do the alterations. It all sounds so fabulous -the gilded parties, the magnificent charity balls and the romantic moonlit dinners. It's just too much to contemplate. Let's just say that our gal Kate hit gold. She makes Cinderella look like a poor needy munchkin. All I can say to Kate is good luck. Enjoy your prince and all the royal things that come with your gilded life of privilege and patronage. And to you who live in Boca Raton or Miami - just know that big hair, long nails and breast implants are not mandatory to catch a prince (or a nice guy). And for that I am grateful to Kate.

Gnus, trains and love join up in 'Water for Elephants'
If you love the circus and you love trains, you are already halfway to loving "Water for Elephants." If you love an against-all-odds love story then you are virtually guaranteed to love this movie, based on the best-selling novel by Sara Gruen.
Reese Witherspoon and Robert Pattinson are the lovers: circus star Marle-na and veterinarian Jacob Janowski.
The story is told by the elderly Jacob, played by Hal Holbrook in the present. Jacob alludes to a young circus employee that he knows about the terrible Benzini Bros, circus disaster of 1931. Not only does he know about it; Jacob was there when the disaster happened and he knows what caused it. So begins Jacob's yarn and a movie that careens from dramatic adventure to comedy, romance and melodrama, and back again, under the direction of Francis Lawrence ("I Am Legend"). It is the depths of the Depression and Jacob is taking his final exam to become a Doctor of Veterinary Science at Cornell. Jacob never takes the test, as he is interrupted by the terrible news that both his parents have been killed in a car crash. If that weren't bad enough, Jacob's generous veterinarian father has mortgaged everything for his son's education, and now the bank is taking eve-Support
This has a very 2011 ring to it, but that is one of the attractions of a story set in that terrible time in America. Everyone is needy, hurting and growing more desperate.
On an impulse Jacob hops on a train that turns out to be the Benzini Bros, circus train.
Jacob has the good fortune to fall under the protection of a genial alcoholic called Camel (Jim Norton), and that's a good thing. August (German actor Christoph Waltz), the cruel, autocratic circus owner, regularly has his employees thrown off the moving train for reasons as simple as he can't afford payroll. Yes, August is a very bad guy and he is married to the very beautiful star of his show (Witherspoon), an expert equestrian and gymnast.
My opinion of Reese Witherspoon has shot up at least 30 points for pulling off this role and making it
look easy. Reese rides trick horses, flies through the air, twirls on metal bars, and as a coup de grace, rides a 4-ton elephant named Ro-sie.
The pachyderm is as impressive as Reese. Where did they ever find an elephant that understands Polish?
Robert Pattinson is less impressive. His character is younger than Marlena's and less sophisticated, but he seems a bit out of his league. The least successful part is his romantic scenes with Reese. I felt uncomfortable for him. On the other hand Waltz is one dandy villain, full of pride, vanity and rage. The German accent doesn't hurt either.
"Elephants" has many delights visually and dramatically. I loved the dwarf actor Mark Povinelli, who played Walter, a clown who loves his little dog. So while this movie appeals more to women than men, I'm with the girls on this

And the winner is - marketing and PR campaigns
We will soon be experiencing another historic event � the presidential election in 2012.
The political campaigns have already begun. All political parties are anxious to get a positive word out to the public to get the votes. Enter marketing and public relations.
Campaigns come in various styles, designs and formats. We have political, military, recruiting campaigns to name a few. Is there a commonality that makes one campaign a success and another a failure? The secret formula is superior marketing and the secret ingredient is high-quality PR. In 2008, the United States of America experienced the ultimate representation of marketing and PR in the political campaigns to elect a president. It was one of the most intense, complex and expensive campaign exercises we have ever experienced. To reach their goal and target markets, both parties' strategies involved
enormous research, planning, appropriating proper personnel, acquiring financial resources and executing and measuring results. During the campaign, the political teams targeted segments of the population, analyzed their needs and offered plans to solve their problems.
The expenditures in these political campaigns ran into the high millions (and it is estimated that in the 2012 presidential campaign it will be in the billions). The decisions on where to spend the advertising dollars and achieving positive media coverage follow the same thinking and planning that one would do in planning any type of campaign. Timing, personnel and using the proper form of media are essential. The results of careful planning and effective implementation thereof will determine whether the campaign is successful. The public relations campaign starts off with organizing a plan. Planning is
the key to getting the job done. This planning procedure must include the goals, courses of action, funding, research and a system of measurements as an integrated approach to the campaign. The initial overview of the campaign must be spelled out with the specific goals and a plan for how to reach them.
A clear definition of what are to be the results is paramount to the whole procedure. We can look at the planning stage as a ladder with ten steps- you can't go to the second step until you've stepped on the first one and got it done, you can't go to the third until you've stepped on the second, and so on -which culminates at a completed campaign plan:
Step 1. Public relations campaign overview including analysis.
Step 2. Establish plans, goals and objectives
Gerald J. Sherman, of Sherman & PerlmanLLC, is a marketing and public relations consultant, sales coach and author who has written several books and articles on these subjects. jerry@ shermanperlman. com http://www. shermanperlman. com
A general service law firm serving the modest middle class
Step 3. Establish target market(s)
Step 4. Establish a budget
Step 5. Establish strategies
Step 6. Assign people who will participate listing specific responsibilities, functions and duties
Step 7. Timing - establishing starting and completion times
Step 8. Develop the mes-
Step 9. Decide on how to deliver the message - TV, radio, print media, direct mail, Internet, social media
Step 10. Develop a method to measure performance So you see that your individual business like the business of government must incorporate these PR principles in your campaign. Presumably, some of the smartest brainpower in government is using these procedures, so why not take advantage of their knowledge and follow suit in your business?

Capital Abstract and Title - evolving with the economy
By Donovan Ortega
Capital Abstract and Title has been in business in South Florida for twenty-five years. Paul Mandel, President and co-founder of the company has seen Capital Abstract and Title continue to grow through unavoidable market fluctuations that are intrinsic in real estate.
"Obviously this isn't 2003," said Mandel, speaking of the troublesome decline in property value. "But, we quickly realized that we had to adjust our approach."
Many real estate companies, unable to keep a viable business model, simply closed their doors when the
economy began its downward spiral. But, Mandel and his wife and business partner, Diane Perkins, have changed their methods. One example is their intensified focus on short sales. A short sale is an alternative to foreclosure and bankruptcy that many property owners are taking advantage of. However, in order for this transaction to go smoothly, a lawyer is needed to negotiate the harried bureaucracy of banking. Both Mandel and Perkins are real estate attorneys and they have created a short sale division within the company. "We've been doing short sales for the last two years," said Mandel. "Not
a lot of people want to get involved. There's a lot of overhead and its very labor intensive. The process has become too complicated for the average title agent. You need a lawyer to close these files."
This process can often be intimidating, so Mandel stressed Capital Abstract and Title's attention to customer service. There is no pressure. The atmosphere within the office is relaxed. The agents are friendly and genuinely helpful. Walk-ins are welcome. In fact, they offer free consultation to prospective clients as well as weekly "how to" seminars. "We really try to sit people down and take them by the
hand and guide them to the correct course of action. Everybody has issues. No two files are alike. It takes work," said Mandel. But along with Mandel's serious business persona and no nonsense negotiation, he offers a unique perspective on the current economic climate. "I am a positive guy, so my business stays positive," said Mandel. "The market will continue to recover over the next five years and Capital Abstract and Title will be there to see it. I am sure of it."

Critical Links in the Corporate Integrity Chain
Many companies and organizations include "Integrity" when they list their foundational values for guiding their day-to-day operations. Although this desire for fostering a corporate culture of integrity is admirable, such aspirations can be ruined by one misguided employee. Corporate integrity is not simply a noble principle espoused at the top levels of corporate management. It is actually a culmination of the entire corporate team working in unity; many people combining to establish a consistent standard for personal integrity throughout the organization. An organization is only as good as the weakest link in the chain.
For instance, a customer's one bad experience with a sales person or customer service representative can seriously taint their opinion of the entire organization. If such behavior or attitudes are repeated, or if reports of the negative experience become widespread, an otherwise reputable company can suffer irreparable damage.
Just as the adage tells us one bad apple can spoil an entire barrel of apples, poor behavior or unethical actions by a single employee can tarnish how people perceive an entire organization. It might not seem fair, but that is the reality. Proverbs 17:21, found in the Bible's Old Testament, presents it this way: "To have a fool for a son brings grief; there is no joy for the father of a fool." Just as a father can experience grief, so can an employer. Whether in a family or a company, one individual can spoil things for everyone on the team. A bad hire can destroy a good reputation that has been built over many years. Here are some biblical guidelines for selecting people who will become assets for your organization: Seek people who demonstrate honesty. Does the individual's resume check out? Do they seem like people who cherish the truth, or do you sense they would be willing to bend the truth to make a sale or advance professionally? "The Lord detests lying
lips, but he delights in men who are truthful" (Proverbs 12:22).
Look for people with solid reputations. Do they come highly recommended by people you know and respect? If they are to hold leadership roles, they should already have demonstrated a commitment to personal and professional integrity. "Now an overseer (manager) must be above reproach...temperate, self-controlled, respectable, hospitable, able to teach____ Deacons, likewise, are to be men worthy of respect, sincere.. .not pursuing dishonest gain" (l Timothy 3:2-8). These qualifications are listed for spiritual leadership, but they also apply well for those charged with directing a corporate enterprise. Just as Proverbs 17:21 reminds us there is no joy for the father of a fool, remember there also is no joy for leaders whose employees bring embarrassment or disgrace to their companies. The next time you hire someone, strive to select a person who brings joy instead of grief.

Judge unlikely to set aside mediated agreement based on Jstressf
Question: My wife and I have been involved in a divorce case for over a year. All financial information has been exchanged. A month ago, with our lawyer's approval, we entered into a mediated settlement agreement, after a two-day mediation. We have been married for 20 years, and have two minor children. I have been a stay at home dad. My wife is a successful attorney, who makes several hundred thousand dollars a year.
In the mediation agreement, we divided marital property. She agreed to pay permanent alimony and child support. She also agreed to pay private school fees, summer camp fees and college education costs. A month after the agreement was signed, she had second thoughts. She told the judge she did not know if she could make the payments without increasing her workload to the point where she could spend little time with the children. She also claimed that she was coerced by the stress of the
two-day mediation. She asked the court to reject the agreement, because was not in the best interests of the children. The judge set a half a day hearing next week to hear e-vidence regarding whether or not the agreement was in the best interest of the children. He said that he had the right to reject the agreement if it was not in the children's best interests, or if my wife was coerced into signing it. Can he do that?
Answer: Florida law looks favorably on settlement agreements entered into voluntarily, between two adults, represented by counsel, after full disclosure. These agreements are, generally, endorsed and promoted. Statistics prove that voluntary agreements are more likely to be followed than court imposed agreements. On the other hand, the court's have the legitimate obligation to make sure that children's rights
are protected. Agreements can be rejected by the court if they do not provide an appropriate level of child support, or in some other way ignore the children's best interests. Courts can reject agreements on proven claims that they were entered into fraudulently, based upon misrepresentations of financial information. Agreements can be set aside based on duress or coercion.
An appellate court has set aside an agreement because the wife obtained it by threatening to expose the husband's business practices to the IRS. The stress of a mediation process is not likely to be grounds to set an agreement aside. Under the circumstances that you describe, it is unlikely that a judge in a circuit court has the discretion to set aside your agreement on the two grounds argued by your wife.

Teen Life

Musk: Does It Help or Hurt Study Habits?
Most parents have been there: they expect their son or daughter to be doing homework when all of the sudden they hear loud music playing from his or her room. Therefore parents should immediately assume that their teenager isn't doing homework, right? Wrong. In fact, odds are the music is helping their son or daughter more than they realize. At one point or another most parents will realize that their son or daughter has a short attention span, as can be expected of almost any teenager. Consequently, listening to music while completing homework or studying can be extremely beneficial to some teens, as the music in the background can help a teen to focus on the task at hand. The reason for this is that we as teenagers find it easier, paradoxically, to focus on an assignment with something that distracts some of our attention away from the task at hand.
A large portion of an average teenager's homework can be simple time-consuming busywork. As a result, music helps combat the urge to procrastinate and to not even bother starting the daunting task by making the busywork seem more bearable. When I start an assignment, I convince myself that I will only work until the song ends and then I will take a break. By the end of the song, however, I am already more than halfway through my assignment, so I decide that I may as well finish and play another song to keep my mind from wandering.
Moreover, by studying information as we listen to a specific rhythm of a song, it becomes easier for us to recall the information later-on by simply remembering the rhythm of the song. For example, if I am studying a long list of vocabulary words, I might play one of my favorite songs in my room to help
me keep focused on my task. Consequently, when it comes time for me to be tested on the vocabulary words, and I am stuck trying to remember I word, I try to remember the song I was listening to and see if that helps jog my memory. Remarkably, it works and I remember the word I had forgotten.
Though music always has a potential to distract a teenager, parents should realize that odds are listening to music will help most teenagers. If, however, parents let their son or daughter listen to music and still does not help him or her to focus on a given task, then parents should make music a reward for completing an assignment. For example, if the teen completes one assignment he or she can listen to one song, and so on. In the end, music has enormous potential to greatly help teenagers struggling to form good study habits.

Why Boston's double team tactic won't work against Miami
By: Matt Pineda
The HEAT beat the Celtics on April 10 and gave Miami promise going into a potential playoff series against the Celtics. Here are a few things you should be aware of in understanding this article.
1) In the recent success of Miami, starting against the second win against the Lakers, Dwyane Wade has been the closer for Miami. In that time, Wade, nor Miami, has had to take a last second shot. When the game is tight in the fourth quarter, it's now Wade's decisions that propel the HEAT. Wade is able to handle the ball, and take the offense where he wants it. They have been extremely successful with this approach.
2) The Philadelphia 76ers felt it was their best chance to double team Wade and take him out of the game.
They didn't straight double him, but they limited his chances of getting to the lane, and they have virtually taken Wade out of the game. But Miami has been far superior talent wise with James and Bosh to make that effective, thus beating Philadelphia effectively so far.
3) We recently say Boston eliminate Carmelo from closing them out by double teaming and denying him the ball. Carmelo was lighting the Celtics up, and thus with Stoudemire and Billups out, they didn't have much to turn to. Boston's strategy of doubling Melo makes less sense when Stoudemire is in the game. But with how the Sixers have handled Wade and slowed him down, Boston may take a similar approach, knowing they need to elimi-
nate one of the big three from being effective. But this strategy will not work against Miami anymore. Wade has seen it all too familiar before. Here's what will happen:
If Boston decides to eliminate Wade from being the playmaker the ball will likely end up being in LeB-ron James' hands. A recent ESPN poll of current NBA players, none of the 160+
players said they would want the ball in James' hands as a teammate But what this does is allow more room for James' quick decision making to happen. By doubling Wade beyond the 3 point line to get the ball out of his hands like they did Carmelo, it would leave LeBron on a 4 on 3 with Bosh and other teammates ready to score. James may not be the best closer but he certainly can take advantage of having an extra teammate to play with. Miami would then have Bosh, Bibby James Jones/ Mike Miller and Anthony/ or possibly Haslem left to score once LeBron makes his decision. Miami has capable scorers when they are set up by their dynamic teammates.

Softball Takes On local Rivals To Close Season
By Steve Kramer
BOCA RATON - Lynn University's Softball team wraps up the 2011 season with five games this week starting with a double-header at Palm Beach Atlantic on Thursday night. Lynn will then host a three-game weekend series with longtime rival Barry University. First pitch on April 28 is scheduled for 6 pm while Saturday's single game with the Buccaneers will start at 2 pm. Sunday's 1 pm double header against the Bucs is 'Senior Day' for the Blue & White, who will honor seniors Jordan Angel, Brittany Gross and Katrina La-vadan prior to game time. The Fighting Knights enter the week at 10-37 overall and 5-16 in the Sunshine State Conference. Gross broke Lynn's all-time record for steals with 32 after swiping a pair of bases against Nova Southeastern Friday night. The native of Jensen Beach, Fla., leads the team with a .359 average, 27 runs and nine sto-
len bases.
Mandi Brown has continued to hit the ball hard and now leads the Fighting Knights with ten extra-base hits and 26 RBIs and is second to Jordan Angel's three home runs with two. In the circle, Callie Dar-lin has been a workhorse with a team-high six victories and 4.63 ERA. Her 26 complete games is tops in the SSC while her 169.1 innings is also among league leaders.
Palm Beach Atlantic hosts Florida Tech prior to facing the Knights and enter the week 22-16 overall. The Sailfish are nearly hitting .300 as a team led by Lauren Powell's .358 average. Four other players are also hitting over .300 and all have the ability to take pitchers deep. From a power standpoint, Caitlin Bouschet paces the 'Fish with a team-high five home runs and 30 RBIs to go with ten doubles and three triples.
LU has dropped three of four meetings to PBA this season and should expect
to face Chris Donovan (14-6, 1.77 ERA) and Lauren Bubeck (7-7, 2.84 ERA) in the circle. Neither are big strikeout pitchers as they have fanned 66 and 65 batters, respectively, in over 100 innings of work. The Bucs (29-11, 15-5 SSC) host Northwood for a doubleheader tomorrow before making the short trip to Boca on Saturday. Grace Collins, Alyssa Goldsmith and Jessica Tabor are all hitting well over .400 to lead a hot-hitting team. Tabor also leads the team with five homers, 38 RBI and 15 doubles while Goldsmith has collected 14 extra-base hits and 32 runs batted in. Brooke Asher is also a power threat with five round-trippers despite hitting just .228. Brianna Smith has been dominant in the circle with a 1.13 ERA and strikes out nearly one batter an inning. Paula Mackin has also been impressive with a 9-3 record while sporting a 2.73 earned run average.

Offense Wins in FAU's 11th Annual Spring
Football Came
BOCA RATON - The Florida Atlantic football team had their 11th annual spring game this Saturday at the Tom Oxley Athletic Fields. The team took to the field on the sunny day as spectators crowded the sidelines in anticipation to watch what the Owls had been working on all spring. "It was a very competitive
day and a very hard hitting day" said Head Coach Howard Schnellenberger, "I think this was a really good spring practice." The offense was able to prevail five points over the defense in the third scrimmage of the spring season. Running back Damian Fortner had two touchdown runs to lift the of-
fense in an 18 to 13 victory over the defense. Fortner finished with 13 carries for 46 yards. The offense started strong with David Kooi beginning the game behind center. Throwing for the first offensive points of the game, Kooi connected on a 34 yard pass to wide receiver Jay-bes Cross. Kooi was able to hit multiple receivers and tight ends throughout the game getting in rhythm with Dexon Dorvilus,Darian Williams, Byron Hankerson and De-Andre Richardson. Williams led with receptions
(6) and receiving yards (71).
Quarterbacks Graham Wilbert, Stephen Curtis and Nick Bracewell all saw action behind center. Curtis put together a few plays with running back Travis Jones who led the team in carries (14) and in rushing yards (66). Bracewell found wide receiver De-Andre Robinson and tight end Alex Deleon multiple times.
Offense won the game but the defense didn't make the feat easy for them achieve. Strong safety Cortez Ash and defensive linemen Martin Wright and Kevin Cyrille all came away each with a quarterback sack.
The defense also had an easy time breaking up passes with Ash, defensive back Demetrius Williamson and linebacker Tony Moore all almost getting interceptions. Michael Co-peland, Tony Rodriguez, Randell Johnson and Cory Henry also stood out on defense.
The FAU stadium is the centerpiece of FAU's Innovation Village, located in the north central area of campus. A $70 million project, it is slated to feature 6,000 premium seats, including 24 suites, 26 loge boxes, 1,000 premier club seats and 4,000 priority club seats, and the latest, state-of-the art amenities.
The Owls will open the 2011 campaign at the University of Florida in Gainesville on Saturday, September 3. The 2011 football season will host five home games to be played for the first time on FAU's Boca Raton campus, with the home season opener scheduled to take place on Saturday, October 15.

Jaik Nicklaus - His Career Achievements
and Honors
By: Lorraine Simpson
Jack Nicklaus was born on 21 st January 1940 in Columbus, Ohio. His competitive career spans five decades and he has been named "Golfer Of The Century" or "Golfer Of The Millenium" by almost every major golfing publication in the world.
Success came early to Nicklaus when he carded 51 in the first nine holes he ever played and won the Scioto Club Juvenile Trophy at the age of ten. At the age of twelve he won the Ohio State Junior Championship and continued to win this tournament for the following five years from 1952 to 1956. Aged seventeen he qualified for the US Open for the first time and at the age of twenty he came runner-up to Arnold Palmer in the US Open by two strokes and in the process established a record 282 for an amateur entry. Since joining the PGA Tour in 1962 he has established himself as the most successful golfer ever. His impressive array of Professional Titles includes 6 Masters (1963, 1965, 1966,
1972, 1975, 1986), 5 PGA Championships (1963, 1971,
1973, 1975, 1980), 4 US Open Titles (1962, 1967, 1972, 1980) and 3 British Opens (1966, 1970, 1978). He won on his debut in the US Senior Tour (over-50) in 1990 and continued to win the title.

jors at least twice and is the only player to have completed the career "Grand Slam" on both the regular and senior tours. Arguably his finest hour in golf came in 1986 when he won the Masters by playing the last 10 holes in seven under par. He was then aged 46 and regarded by many as "past it". In summary his major championship statistics comprise of 20 wins, 19 second place and 9 third place which is a truly remarkable career history.
Jack Nicklaus has also enjoyed huge success as a Golf Course Architect and has gained a number of honors in this field including: Architect of the Year 1993 (Golf World), Environmental Recognition Awards 1996 (John James Audubon-Links Magazine), Environmental Leaders in Golf Award 1998 (Golf Digest), ING Achievement in Golf Course Design 2000-2001 (International Network of Golf), Donald Rossi Award 2001 (Golf Course Builders Association of America) and the Donald Ross Award 2001 (American Society of Golf Course Architects). He has

been involved in the design of 243 courses worldwide, some of the highest calibre including Muirfield Village and Glen Abbey. His business "Nicklaus Design" has 294 courses open for play around the world. Jack Nicklaus played his 38 th and final British Open in 2005 and to commemorate his incredible career achievements the Royal Bank Of Scotland issued a �5 Bank Note bearing his image and recognizing his Open Championship victories at St Andrews in 1970 and 1978. Two million Jack Nicklaus Bank Notes were issued into circulation in Scotland on July 14th 2005, the first day of the Open Championship. Apart from Her Majesty The Queen and the late Queen Mother, Jack Nicklaus is the only living person ever to have appeared on a Scottish Bank Note. In November 2005 after leading the United States to a victory in The Presidents Cup he was honored by President Bush at the Whitehouse with the Presidential Medal Of Freedom - the highest US honor given to any civilian. Jack Nicklaus lives in North Palm Beach, Florida with his wife Barbara. They have 5 children and 19 grandchildren.
