Hurricane Irene, a strong and expansive storm, has been heading north from the Caribbean, but shifting east since its original track that put the east coast of South Flori da in the cone of error. It appeared by mid-week that Irene might barely touch Florida. But residents, emer gency agencies, police and fire units were not taking any chances.

Community News The Boca Raton Tribune County contractor to conduct sea turtle monitoring Under a contract with Palm Beach County through its Department of Environ mental Resources Manage ment, Inwater Research Group began monitor ing sea turtles in the Lake Worth Lagoon this week. The project will evaluate the size and health of the la goons sea turtle population as part of a baseline study initiated in 2006. Sea turtles function as an indicator species for envi ronmental health much like a canary in the coal mine. The results of the study have im portant implications for the overall health of the lagoon. The study consists pri marily of turtle captures by setting a large-mesh tangle net. When a turtle encoun ters the net, researchers quickly remove it and take measurements and a blood sample. Most of the sea turtle captures will occur near Munyon Island in the northern end of the lagoon. Previous capture events indicate that mostly juvenile green sea turtles utilize the lagoon for a portion of their life cycle. The study is funded by a grant from the Sea Tur tle Conservancy (STC), a not-for-profit organization dedicated to ensuring the survival of sea turtles with in the Atlantic and Pacific oceans and Caribbean Sea through research, educa tion, training, advocacy, and protection of the reptiles natural habitats. STC is responsible for awarding grants with mon ey raised through the pur chase of sea turtle license plates. These grants are crit ical for the continued success of Palm Beach Countys sea turtle research and outreach program.

Golf Classic to benet PROPEL set for October 20 The Emergency Op erations Center in West Palm Beach was staffed and monitoring the storms progress. So was the School District, an ticipating it might have to cancel classes. One person who called to the Boca Raton Tribune reported he was unable to find gasoline in West Boca on Monday night. Additional tankers were reportedly heading this way to refill reserves at stations where residents stocked up in advance of the storm. On supermarket shelves, water seemed scarce and, at one Publix, milk that does not need refrigeration was gone completely. The pace of prepara tion seemed to slow down as the week progressed and it appeared the storm might just skirt Florida. "We've got a lot of time for people to get ready, but we don't have forever," said Craig Fu gate, who heads the Fed eral Emergency Manage ment Agency, during a briefing Tuesday. The current track fore cast takes the storm inland up the North Carolina and Virginia coasts and onto the Delmarva Peninsula Sunday morning. Federal forecasters monitoring Irene have been cautioning that the accuracy of their track forecasts can be off by as much as 250 miles five days out. Even so, "a little deviation in the track" can have a significant impact on the storm's effect on the coast, Fugate said. The Christian Science Monitor contributed to this story.

COMMUNITY NEWS East/West Boca Raton, FL CPR course at Boca Regional Hospital helps babysitter save toddlers life BOCA RATON When people take a CPR training course, they of ten wonder if they will ever be called on to use it. For Boynton Beach resident, Talisha Tor res, a 24-year-old teacher at Manatee Elementary School in Lake Worth, that answer came a lot sooner than she expected. Talisha credits the training she received through the Family and Friends cardiopulmo nary resuscitation pro gram at BRRH for help ing her save the life of a toddler left in her care for babysitting. Education is the key to prevention. Or, at least thats what Posie Whelan thought when she asked family friend, Talisha, to take the CPR course. Talisha works part time for the family as a nanny over the summer months, babysitting the familys 13-month-old son, Chris topher. She completed the CPR training class this past May. The class teaches par ents, grandparents and babysitters how to handle life-threatening situa tions in infants, toddlers and children, which in cludes the infant Heim lich maneuver. While Talisha was babysitting the toddler, Christopher began chok ing when a green bean lodged in his windpipe during his feeding. When Talisha noticed he was struggling to breathe, she immediately began to ad minister the infant Heim lich maneuver. She whisked the baby out of his highchair and slung him downward on her knee and hit him five times on the back, just as she was instructed to do back in May. The green bean was finally dislodged and she was relieved when she heard him crying and breath ing properly. This was the first time she had ever used the maneuver. Talisha credits her recent CPR/Heimlich training for providing her with the knowledge and the confidence to act quickly and correctly in what could have been a life-threatening situation. People dont know that with infants and tod dlers the CPR/ Heimlich procedure is performed differently, said Talisha I would not have known to place the baby over the knee had I not taken the class. Im just amazed that I remembered what to do. The incident all happened so quickly and under such a desperate situation, all the training comes back to you. Posie Whelan, who works for Brian Bernick, MD, an obstetrics/ gyne cologist on staff at Boca Raton Regional Hospi tal, praised the hospitals CPR course. Talisha kept her head and stayed cool. Im really proud of her. The evening class was taught by American Heart Association CPR instructors Nicole Holo boff and Richard Alva rez. Ironically Richard is Talishas cousin. Its strange how all things were set in motion for me to take this class, she said. It was almost like it was destiny. BRRH offers the Fam ily and Friends CPR class es at 6 p.m. every Wednes Community Outreach Coordinator Sandra Savia hands tod dler doll to Talisha Torres for demonstration of Heimlich maneuver on toddlers.

Box 970593 Boca Raton, FL 33497 used as letters to the editor. Letter Guidelines By Dale King Letters to the Editor When it comes to dancing, Boca Raton has its own stars EDITORIALS/LETTERS East/West Boca Raton, FL The Boca Raton Tribune Founded January 15, 2010 Publisher C.E.O C.O.O. C.M.0 Managing Editor Associate Editor I know I frequently talk about my wife in these columns. Some times, its just to kid her while at other times, she is an integral part of what the column is about. This time, she is very integral. Years ago, she became a follower of the TV show, Dancing with the Stars. The program has caught fire with mil lions of TV viewers over the years, becoming to dance what American Idol is to song. Four years ago, as part of Boca Festival Days, the Greater Boca Raton Chamber of Com merce created Bocas Ballroom Battle, a local production patterned af ter DWTS. It was, and still is, a fundraiser for the George Snow Schol arship Fund. My wife has been en couraging me to get tick ets every year since the program began. She is not just a fan of dancing, but was a professional dancer and teacher for the Arthur Murray Stu dios. Coincidentally, the dancers for the local event were also provided by a professional school. Well, when I told my wife I got the tickets this year, she was ecstatic. Since we had never attended, we didnt know what to expect. What we saw was as terrific as we hoped probably much more so. We were sitting with Flossy Keesely who re membered that during the first Boca Ballroom Battle, only about 100 people showed up. The event last Saturday at the Boca Raton Resort & Club drew a crowd of some 750. It was a won derful showing, particu larly because this is still summer and season is a ways off. I particularly enjoyed the fact that the organiz ers were able to bring one of the professionals from Dancing with the Stars to be a judge at the contest. Chelsie Hight ower, who has been part of the onstage troupe in Hollywood for about five seasons, was there in Boca Raton Saturday night. She joined other judges Babette Brown, Ioana Grigore and Dan Guin. Those who put their feet on the line for the Snow Scholarship Fund were philanthropist and businesswoman Yvonne Boice; plastic and recon structive surgeon Dr. Rafael Cabrera; Ralph Mesa, executive manag er of Mercedes-Benz of Delray; Pat Thomas, a local volunteer extraor dinaire; Ingrid Fulmer, an executive VP with Coldwell Banker Com mercial; Bryan Tindell, co-owner with his wife of a fitness salon in Boca Raton and South Florida director of disposal for Waste Management Inc.; Jackie Reeves, managing director of Bell Rock Capital and Jay DiPi etro, president/COO/ general manager of Boca West Country Club. Training the novices were Patrick Alonsagay, Pam Casanave and Mari ya-Khristina Shurupova, Ivan Rivera and Sayra Vazquez from the Fred Astaire Dance Studios Boca Raton. Mesa and Shurupo va proved it takes two to tango. Boice and Alonsagay offered up a fine and fancy fox trot. Thomas cha-chad with Rivera and Fulmer (who brought along her daughter, Kendra, a re markable singer) held the audience spellbound as she waltzed with Alonsagay. Next came Tindell, buff from his business, who joined Casanave for a jive that made the floor come alive. Reeves was ready to rumba with Ri vera. Then came Cabrera, who proved he was truly a cutup. He appeared on stage in a shirt open to the waist. His sexy salsa with Shurupova had the audience on their feet. Then came the suave Mr. DiPietro, whose top hat and cane cabaret/ quick step with Casa nave brought raves from all sections of the audi ence. There were winners that night in the Mizner Center at the Boca Re sort. But the real winner was the George Snow Scholarship Foundation. Just the eight commu nity leaders who danced their hearts out that night raised more than $211,000. It was truly a night of excitement. It should hold my wife over until Dancing with the Stars begins its new season next month. Dear Dale, Nice job on the column about your memories of autumn in New England. Im from New York so I can understand how you feel.

Let them know you saw their Ads in the Boca Tribune. EDITORIALS & LETTERS East/West Boca Raton, FL By Dr. Synesio Lyra, Jr. By Douglas Heizer The headline on my col umn today is a translation of a Portuguese phrase that is just as important and just as relevant in Bra zil, the USA or any other country. Without advertising, no business can survive. Thats probably a more frank observation of the marketplace than some people want to hear, but its a fact. If people dont know that a business exists, how can it expect to draw cus tomers? Word of mouth only works for a short time and often brings in a few people. Ive alluded in the past to the need for advertising in the newspaper business, and how publications like the Boca Raton Tribune can carry information about business into the homes of residents throughout the area in a way no other me dia can. Im mentioning this now because I spent some time the last few days going through shopping plazas and past businesses that I have visited during the past year and a half of the Tri bunes existence. I dropped by to say hello and, early on, pitched the Tribune as the new kid on the block that was looking to branch out and give them exposure to homes they had virtually no other way of reaching. Later, as the newspaper became known, I revisited these places and told them that our grasp was now much greater than in the past, and I continued to urge them to advertise. Some helped out and purchased ads. Some wouldnt part with a single dime. These past few days, I have noticed the large num ber of vacant storefronts around the area, places that once bustled with shop pers; restaurants that once overflowed with hungry customers, and shops with shiny fixtures and lots of shoppers sometimes lined up in front before the doors were even open. Many of these stores and restaurants are gone. Certainly, the economy has taken a toll. But would some of these retailers still be around if they had pur chased advertising, not just in the Boca Raton Tribune, but in any publication that serves the area? We are not the only medium in which business people can advertise. But we have certainly built up clout since we first hit the streets as a print product in March of 2010. I learned a lot about the minds of business op erators during the past 18 months. One major mis conception that I want to dispel is the idea that buy ing one ad will bring in a flock of shoppers. Thats not necessarily true. You need a business plan to make your adver tising work. You need to place ads on a regular basis so your operation can take advantage of the frequency of publication. People can easily miss a single ad, but if you feature your busi ness in several editions as many as you want you have a better chance of be ing seen. Thousands of eyes scan the Boca Raton Tribune each week. Not just the peo ple who pick it up at a store or take one out of a news paper box. The papers get passed around. Those that end up in medical offices can be perused by people over and over again each day. Its not easy convinc ing some business people to buy advertising. But the matter is simple. If stores and restaurants buy ads, it will help them prosper. And by putting money into our operation here at the Boca Raton Tribune, it guarantees a steady flow of news and ads into the com munity. Buying an ad or a se ries of them is a better strategy than not open ing your wallet and taking some of your space for a few weeks. Youre bound to make a big difference. We cant do anything more for those firms that have had to shutter their windows and lock their doors. But you, the busi ness person in the com munity right now, you have survived the worst of this recession. You have beaten the financial odds. You have struggled in the face of ad versity. We commend you, and we offer you the opportuni ty to add your name to the many companies that ad vertise here in the Boca Ra ton Tribune. We are, after all, your closest neighbor. Advertising is the soul of the business By Dr. Synesio Lyra, Jr. For people who regu larly devote some time to think, fresh, new ideas inevitably emerge. They need to be recorded, re vised when necessary, shared with others, and ex panded. Once their quality is refined, and they can be recognized as sound, right and useful, they should gradually lead to positive action! At every stop in life we are coping with the conse quences of ideas and ac tions, most of them long since forgotten as Nor man Cousins once stated. The mind God gave each human creature needs to advance in careful, sound motion, producing healthy ideas which can lead to something great, with positive, long-lasting out comes. What appears good from the start shall require time to be tested before be coming truly great! As the late Bishop Wil liam Culbertson once re flected, It is important to start right, but it is imperative to end well, while remembering St. Augustines warning that nothing worth doing can be accomplished in ones lifetime. Quite often, the best ideas one receives tend to arrive at most inconve nient moments. They may come in the middle of the night when you mo mentarily awake, or while you are in the shower, dur ing your driving through heavy traffic, or in equally impractical circumstances. Yet, even then, you can develop ways to capture every good thought when it comes to you. Many of the things people enjoy in life today as conveniences, or items of an inspiring, constructive nature, also came about in similar, even adverse circumstances. Yet, per sistent creativity brought the project to legitimate fruition! Twentieth century French philosopher, Henri Bergson, left the challenge that we must think as people of action and act as people of thought. Many ideas will never lead any where because they were not clearly defined, finetuned, well though-out. But once they are re flected upon, shared with others, modified and im proved over time, they may lead to something impact ing, enduring, providing direction and genuine help to others in varied ways. Normally, what comes too quickly has greater prob ability of flaws and failure, or of never getting off the ground, however fascinat ing the idea initially might appear! The late Phillips Brooks left a sane and sol id proposal worth follow ing in situations similar to these. He suggested, Do not pray for tasks equal to your powers. Pray for powers equal to your task. From Sound Ideas to Positive Action!

Municipal News The Boca Raton Tribune r f n t b rfntbrrb t BOCA RATON -A lo cal man told police he was robbed at gunpoint out side his apartment on NW 15th Court just after 4:15 a.m. Aug 15. Police said the gunman fired two shots, but missed the victim. Boca Raton Police of ficers responded when the mans cousin, who also lives in the complex, called 911. The victim told officers he had been at a club in West Palm Beach with two friends and had dropped the friends off at their re spective homes before ar riving home himself. The police report says that when the victim got out of his car, he was ap proached by a male point ing a gun at him. The sus pect told the man to get on the ground and give him his wallet. At this point, police said, a second suspect, who was also armed with a gun, got out of a grey four-door vehicle, which was stopped in the street, and approached them. The victim said he did not have a wallet and refused to get on the ground. The sus pect grabbed the victim and tried to push him to the ground, ripping the necklace off his neck. The suspect grabbed the victims shirt and pulled him toward an area north of the parking lot. During the struggle the suspect took the victims bracelet. The man was able to pull free from the suspect and threw his keys and cell phone at him. At this point the suspect fired two shots. The victim was not struck. The suspects got into a newer model, grey fourdoor American made car, which was driven by an unknown third suspect, and left east on NW 13th Street. The victim sus tained minor abrasions and a ripped shirt.

P.A. and Associates A year after a 2-yearold died in a sweltering hot van at a Delray Beach child care center, the Palm Beach County Com mission has adopted new regulations for child care facilities, one of which mandates safety alarms in transportation vans. Sitting as the Child Care Facilities Board, commissioners approved a series of changes to child care facilities rules, including the require ment for alarms in vehi cles used for transporting six or more children. The panel also voted to reduce site require ments for outdoor play areas, require child care personnel to have a high school diploma and addi tional pre-licensing train ing requirements. County Commission adopts new rules requiring alarms in child care vans In August 2010, 2-year-old Haile Brock ington died after she was forgotten in the back of an extremely hot day care van. To help child care cen ters pay for the alarms, the county's Children's Services Council has set aside up to $100,000. The alarms range in price from $250 to $400. The money would provide day care centers with a onetime reimbursement. "We want to avoid any tragedies like Haile Brockington," Gaetana D. Ebbole, the services council's chief executive officer told commission ers. "We are pleased to make this offer to help keep Palm Beach County's children, our most pre cious cargo, healthy, safe and strong." Under the new rules, day care centers have to have the alarm systems installed by Sept. 1, 2012. They work by forcing the driver or bus aide to walk to the back of the bus to deactivate the alarm af ter the ignition has been turned off. The presump tion is that the person will notice if any children have been left behind. At its Aug.16 meeting, the commission also took the following action: Mortgage Foreclosure Registration adopted an ordinance requir ing banks and mortgage companies to register properties in foreclosure, inspect those properties and identify a property maintenance company for each foreclosed property. Firearms approved on preliminary reading and to advertise for pub lic hearings on Sept. 13 five ordinances mandated by state law pertaining to the sale, purchase, posses sion, use and storage of firearms. Homelessness ap proved a memorandum of agreement with the Homeless Coalition of PBC to advocate and edu cate on the issue of home lessness and to pursue re sources in pursuit of the countys Ten-Year Plan to End Homelessness. The county will provide staff ing and office space for the coalition at the coun tys Division of Human Services. Commissioners also adopted a resolution reducing membership on the Homeless Advi sory Board from 36 to 19 members. Palm Tran ap proved a three-year joint participation agreement with the Florida Depart ment of Transportation (FDOT) in the amount of $863,400 per year to fund service frequency increases on two Gladesarea Palm Tran routes. No county funds are re quired. Economic Develop ment conceptually ap proved a Section 108 Loan Program agreement in the amount of $592,000 (pending HUD approval) and a Brownfields Eco nomic Development Ini tiative (BEDI) grant in the amount of $182,451 for Americas Sound, Inc. The audio equipment manufacturer plans to renovate a building lo cated within the Avenue A Revitalization Project in Belle Glade, creating 35 new full-time jobs over the next five years. Annexations ap proved the voluntary an nexation of an enclave to taling 1.21 acres on Kirk Road into the village of Palm Springs and a 3.44acre parcel on Indiantown Road into the town of Ju piter.

B BOCA LIFE & ARTS East/West Boca Raton, FL Names of Love a French Sex Farce with Political Overtones Sara Forestier in Names of Love. The 1960s hippie cre do Make Love Not War takes on new meaning in The Names of Love, the winner of this years Cae sar, the French equivalent of Academy Award for Best Picture, now play ing at FAUs Living Room Theaters. The lovely lover is one Baya Bernahmoud (Sara Forestier), a young wom an of Algerian descent and now living in France. Baya decries the discrimi nation against Africanborn and Muslim French citizens who have flocked to France in large num bers for a better life. Baya wages a one-woman battle to change the minds of right-wing, wealthy, big oted men of power by se ducing them one at a time while arguing for more moderate, compassionate policies. Ironically Baya is the daughter of a French heiress who has expressed her rebellion by marrying an Algerian refugee (Zin edine Soualem). Arthur Martin (Jacques Gamlin) is the forty-some thing, rational, serious son of a nuclear scientist (Jacques Boudet) who is a veteran of the 1954-1962 Algerian War of Indepen dence. Arthurs mother (Michelle Moretti) is a Jew haunted and traumatized by being the only survivor of her family in the wake of the Holocaust. Arthur works for a government health agen cy. We see him examining dead birds for a feared bird flu epidemic. Because of his job and common name, Baya as sumes Arthur is ultra-con servative. She is wrong. Names of Love, writ ten by director Michel Leclerc and Baya Kasmi, is an opposites-attract ro mantic comedy not unlike Annie Hall. Leclerc in fact is an avowed admirer of Woody Allen, but he has adapted the form to French sex farce with serious themes thrown in. Its a frothy mixture with plenty of nudity and sex. Maybe this is French way of dealing with the very serious problems that exist today in Frances multi-cultural society. I have always felt that laugh ter is a very healthy medi cine. If this film doesnt change any minds, at least Leclerc will have tried.

B BOCA LIFE & ARTS East/West Boca Raton, FL By Diane Feen When corporations became people If corporations are people then just what kind of people are they? Do they have a gender, parents or grandparents? And if so, who is the man and who is the wom an? Can corporations le gally get married? If GE dates Ford Motor com pany, who picks up the check after dinner? And children. Who raises the kids? And who are the grandparents, Warren Buffet and his wife? Ive been thinking a lot about this since Mitt Romney declared that corporations are people. Well, if they are people then corporations need some etiquette classes. When I call AT&T, I am put on hold for at least 30 minutes. On some days, I am subjected to a record ing that repeats itself 20 or 30 times. My mother used to repeat herself quite often, but never 30 times. Then there is the is sue of gender and same sex marriage. National City Bank just wed PNC. and T-Moble is set to walk down the aisle with AT&T. When you have two macho corporations spending their lives to gether it just might ruffle some feathers in Wash ington (especially Mr. and Mrs. Bachman). And, I am not sure you can pray away the gay when you are the most power ful telephone company in America (but I am no ex pert on these matters). I was thinking that perhaps I should date a corporation. They have large amounts of spend able income, are outspo ken in their right to my needs and want to take me for a ride every time I buy something from them. Perhaps what these human corporations need is a good woman to set them straight. We dont need a washing machine that lasts five years, we need one that will at least last longer than the marriage (should it end after 10 years). And warrantees are like com mitments, what woman would date (or marry) a man who only promises to stick around for three years (do you hear that, Toyota?). As women, we also need to be heard. But when I call a corporation I get voicemail and am told I must speak to someone in customer service. Now that corporations are people, who wants to date a lowly customer service person? They often live in India or Pakistan and work such long hours it would eliminate dinner dates and social engage ments. Not only that, corpo rations do not make good companions. They close at 5 pm and often dont want me to come over on weekends. What kind of person does that? Do they have secret liaisons in the eve nings and on weekends? Could it be that Mr. Rom ney wants corporations to live like Mormons and keep two sets of wives (dont ask dont tell I pre sume). And, if we get along well will a corporation, make an honest attempt to meet my needs in time of trouble or will they just complain about me to their shareholders. After all, I dont have share holders, only friends and acquaintances. I wonder if Mr. Rom ney understands what a real person is. Does he know that I need a shoul der to cry on after some one gets killed off on Desperate Housewives? Does he know that I need someone to keep me com pany during long holiday weekends? You show me a corporation who wants to take me to the Carib bean for our anniversary (or a holiday) and I will show you a corporation who insists on having the remote (or asks for direc tions when lost). I am all for dating a corporation and having one as a good friend, but Im not sure how to meet one. If Mr. Romney is correct about corpora tions being people then why arent they on dating sites like Jdate or match. com? And for that reason I think he and I need to consider counseling. Because, after all, it would be pretty hard to get a corporation into couples counseling. And if you cant do that, what good are you as a person?

Jack Cohn had it pretty good. At 20 he was a college student majoring in journal ism at a great Ivy League college. Tragically, during Jacks junior year, his father died. After the estate was set tled, Jack received a check for almost $650,000. There are at least two ways this true story could end up. The first is that Jack decides to invest wisely and goes on to finish college. The second is that he decides that college is not as important as fast cars and lots of par ties. (Read the full article to learn what happened to Jack in real life.) Most of us would like to think that our children and grandchildren could handle a sizeable inheritance. The truth is that some would be able to deal with it while others would have great difficulty. As we all know, money can be both a great motivator and a great hindrance. One way to turn money to your advantage is with an incentive trust. How does it work? An incentive trust is a trust which most often be comes effective when you die, though you could estab lish one while living. Assets in the incentive trust are used by the trustee for the benefit of your beneficiaries. The key difference is that rather than outright distri butions, the trust assets are used to encourage certain types of behavior. For example, lets as sume that you believe your children should be rewarded for choosing a public service career. This might mean teach ing, politics, mission work or other types of employment that contribute to the public good but traditionally have not been considered high paying careers. You could design an incentive trust that would make distributions to your heirs if they decide to pursue such careers. One way to do that would be to pay them a dollar or two in trust distributions for each dollar they earn in public service. We have seen situations where clients have used incentive trusts to help a child live a drug free life style. Like anything in life, in centive trusts have pros and cons. Here are some of the is sues to consider. Advantages Incentive trusts can be used to motivate good and positive behavior. They can be used to en courage good grades in school or completion of cer tain stages of education on time. Incentive trusts can be used to reward a beneficiary for saving money or for liv ing a healthy life style. Many clients have estab lished these trusts to reward entrepreneurship or stew ardship of a family business. And of course incentive trusts can be used to encour age philanthropy. Disadvantages One of the potential con cerns with an incentive trust is the resentment that can be caused if your heirs feel you are controlling their behav ior from beyond the grave. Another potential issue is that children may come to rely on matching trust distri butions and settle for a me diocre job choice rather than striving to reach ever higher goals. This type of structure can also be an easy set up for disappointment if the trust goals for success are set un realistically high or for some reason cannot be met by the beneficiaries. Despite the potential for disadvantage, clients con tinue to establish incentive trusts. They do this because we take them through a process that allows them to think creatively about how to achieve the results they are looking for. If this idea sounds attrac tive to you for your family, here are some things you can start thinking about. Keep it flexible. You never know how your kids or grandkids will turn out. Sometimes it is the child who drops out of col lege who goes on to create Microsoft. Reward milestones. Think about how you could use the trust to re ward constant improvement. One way this can be done is by having your trustees and your beneficiaries consult and let your beneficiaries help to establish their own goals. This can encourage personal and professional growth in a way that does not require the imposition of your views and values on future generations. Establish good communi cation. One of the biggest prob lems we see in this area is the failure to let your children know why you set up the trust as you did. Failure to communicate your reasons may be one of the easiest ways to generate resentment after you are gone. Commu nication is the best way to in sure that the trust works ex actly the way you want it to. Allow Flexibility Finally, consider allowing your trustees substantial dis cretion to work with the ben eficiaries so that as times and people change, your trust can change as well. Now, back to Jack. Jack just inherited $650,000 outright. He used the money in the first week for a new BMW. He went back to school and told ev eryone what had happened. As a result, he became the bank for some of the craziest parties the college had seen in a long time. One night, Jack was driv ing home from one of these parties and was in a serious car accident. His face was badly scarred and he suffered a number of broken bones. Luckily, no one else was hurt. For Jack, it was a wakeup call. He called his dads law yer a few days later and made an appointment. The lawyer talked with Jack about how to put mon ey into trust and set him up with a good investment counselor. He then told Jack to forget the money and go back to finish school as his father would have wanted. The good news part of this story is that Jack did go back. He finished with high marks and now travels the world as a successful photo journalist. If you think you may need to review or update, contact us to set up a time to discuss this with you.

Columnists The Boca Raton Tribune By Mike Gora Sometimes no one wins Florida Bar as a specialist in family and matrimonial law. By: Pastor Miguel Angelo Jr. How To Improve Our Relationship with God How to improve our relationship with God? God does not just want you belong to Him, and to have an alliance with him, but HE wants a relation ship with you. This is the most important relation ship that we could culti vate in our lives. (Matthew 6:31, 32, 33, 34) Jesus teaches us that our "biggest concern" must be seeking a full re lationship with God. In the first place! Relating to: (to be con nected with, to have with the, To Become acquaint ed with), means to be connected, on, learn more and more! If you are seeking to improve your relationship with God, Ill give you five tips: 1) Take time with God in prayer! Dialogue generates intimacy! When you tell things from your heart to God, He tells things from his heart to yours! Dont get a "fast pass ticket" when it comes to talking to God, calm down, take your time, make it plea surable invest in this precious time with God! If you take 5 minutes off every day from your daily doings: phone, in ternet, television, listen ing to music, chatting away at the end you ... Made time! (Psalms 91:1,22) 2) Give up what you know displeases God! Would you get along with someone who does things they know is wrong and you do not like it? And yet they continue to do so, no! Neither does God! If you know that God does not like it, dont do it! Mistakes and sins will always create a gap be tween you and God de spite his forgiveness to wards you! (Proverbs 28:13,143) 3) Seek to know the Word and grow in under standing! This will help you un derstand the will of The Lord ... If you do not read the manual of your car you can still drive it, but when doubts arise about the functioning of the car, you will go unan swered! (Mark 12:24) Ignorance and lack of knowledge destroys lives and interferes in the rela tionship with God! 4) Choose to be with people who are also seek ing quality relationship with God. Other people can in spire us and help us in our relationship with God and can also hinder! Therefore it is extremely important to choose well. (Co.15 1: 33.34) Ive met people who were instrumental, vital in my relationship with God, I became so much better! How nice it is to have contact with people that are connected, connected, intimate, that knows God not only from "hearing about it" but from experi encing God in their lives! 5) Put yourself al ways before the Lord as a humble servant, God has no place in the Proud, not haughty, stuck up, conceited, proud! Nei ther know it all attitude, "Lets rewrite your his tory together and youll no longer need to use an eraser... All we have to be is a humble servant, jars of clay in the hands of God! Whoever wants to look great or be the best or be the perfect one is because its insecurities and thats the way they find to hide their terrible defects! Liv ing with masks, living a lie! Any symptom of pride affects our relationship with God! Himself: He was meek, humble, dis creet, simple, gentle, and merciful, without cer emony! Liturgies, religios ity, self-sufficiency, if you are like this, it will only draw you away from God! Making you less and less pleasing to Him! (John 3:27 to 30) Cristo Vive Church: Phone: (561) 674-1431 Website: www.cristovive church.com Q My wife and I have been married for only three years. We are both in our late thirties and were both partners in a large ac counting firm until a year ago when she became ill, and could no longer work. She had a long-term ill ness, which had been in re mission since we had met. I feel like I had been defrauded, she never told me that she might become disabled from an illness I never knew about. We dis cussed many things before we married that neither of us wanted children; that we would work together, pay our bills, and be able to save considerable money over the years and retire early. Now all that is out the window. Last week she served me with papers for divorce. Not only is he asking for half of what we had saved so far, she is asking for permanent alimony. I do not want to hire attorney, looked up the Florida law online, and told her she could not get permanent alimony after a three-year marriage. She told me her high priced lawyer had told her different. Who is right? A Under most cir cumstances you would be right, but not under these circumstances. A three year marriage would usu ally not qualify a person for permanent periodic alimony, no matter how much more one person earned than the other. Her illness, however, will give a judge the dis cretion, and perhaps even the obligation to provide her permanent alimony in an amount of money to support her, completely. There is no specific for mula for alimony, as there is for child support. In considering your income, and lifestyle, the judge will consider some range of al imony and pick a number based upon all of the facts. From what you have said it appears that your wife should diminish her needs by filing for Social Security disability. The fact that she with held this information be tween you may or may not play into the courts con sideration of the amount. You may also have to pay her attorneys fees as well. You might reconsider your decision not to hire coun sel. The decision that the judge makes will probably affect the rest of your life and hers. Your degree in accounting does not give you the experience nec essary to try to sway the court in your direction at a trial.

She is currently the Palm Beach County Vice Chair of the Republican Party. Active in the Junior League of Boca Raton, the Advisory board of the American Red Cross, and author of several childrens books. Is our country stable or are we so unstable that we could fall apart? Our country is going through a lot right now. It is important to re member that we were founded in a time of instability and a time where things could have broken us apart. No one knew whether America would survive and many of the framers were skeptical themselves. Our problems today are vast, from economic problems, to poor leader ship in the White House. And Constitutional debates are always going on. Wiki leaks brings up the question of free speech, immigration problems bring up the 14th Amendment which says "All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and sub ject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the state wherein they reside", the debt ceil ing brings up Article 1, Section 8 that Congress shall have power to bor row money on the credit of the United States, and the right to bear arms is always being debated, etc. And as much as these issues can tear us apart, its the red, white, and blue that keeps us to gether. In 1782, Charles Thomson, the secretary of the Constitutional Congress, gave a report to Congress on the de scription of the colors of our flag. "White sig nifies purity and inno cence. Red hardiness and valour and Blue signifies vigilance, perseverance and justice." I believe in a country where against all odds our founding fathers de cided to form a country based on Judeo-Chris tian values where every one could practice their religion and be safe. In 1790, George Washing ton wrote to the Hebrew Congregation in New port, Rhode Island "May the stock of Abraham, who dwell in this land, continue to merit and enjoy the good will of the other Inhabitants; while every other one shall sit in safety under his own vine and fig tree, and there shall be none to make him afraid." But, we have gotten fat and we have gotten lazy. I believe that if we work hard, and we cut the fat from what has been going on, that we can get in shape. We can be that strong country that we always were. Any athlete will tell you that it takes discipline, dedication and belief in one self to accomplish your goals. The framers of the constitution never wanted the government to run our country, but that we the people would run our own lives and that we would over see the government. We live is a large un incorporated community west of Boca Raton. It owes its evolution to Fran Reich who fought for schools, traffic lights and, especially, the envi ronment. She helped bring a middle school, defeat a proposal for an airport, establish the West Boca Medical Center and built a bridge, now bear ing her name, over the turnpike on Palmetto Park Road. In 1980, she created the West Boca Community Council and began advocating for parks, libraries and youth activity centers. She worked hard and ac complished much. I believe in America and its amazing resourc es and its perseverance. I believe we will over come our obstacles, our current difficulties, and our spirit must never be dampened or broken. I believe that while we live in such a beau tiful community like South Florida, we must realize that we are all in this together. I believe in America, and I believe in our success and hap piness and many happy days ahead. by Margi Helschien I still believe... Models were using corrective lip make-up tricks many years before show business or Holly wood started overdoing, filling lips with silicone some looking like a duck in profile. Corrective lip make-up for fuller lips is not difficult to master its a matter of knowhow and practice. You will know how after you read this column. Just practice a few times be fore you actually go out on the town with your new, glamorous lips. Note: If you decide to have your lips made full er with silicone, tell the doctor you do not want your moneys worth dont overdo it. *Two shades of Lip stick, one a little lighter than the other with NO shimmer. *A Lip Liner Pencil A little darker than the darker lipstick. *A Lip Gloss medium shine with no shimmer. Below you will find step-by-step instructions using model makeup tricks to achieve fuller looking lips. It is not dif ficult to master and can be very glamorous and alluring. This is how I develop my fuller lips. 1) Apply lipstick nor mally, using your full lip lineblot lightly. 2) Next, take the lip liner pencil and lightly blend the pencil color around your lips edges and into the lipstick, making sure to cover the full edge of your lip lineeven going over the edge ever-so-slightly. Do not just make a dark line around the lips with your pencil.smudge or blend the two colors to gether so there is no line of demarcation between the lipstick and lip pen cil. Do not put the lip liner color all over the lips. The trick is to have the outer part of the lips appear darker than the middle of the lips. The consistency of the lip liner pencil is most im portant. A medium con sistency not too hard or too soft will make the ap plication so much easier. Make sure the pencil has a point 3) If you want/need to add more of the origi nal lipstick now is the time to do it. After that, apply a lighter shade of lipstick to the middle INSIDE of the bottom lip only, tak ing care not to cover the entire bottom lip itself with this second color. The lighter inside bot tom lip color gives it a fuller, puffier look. 4) Blot your lips lightly and carefully then lightly powder over the outside edges go ahead, dont be afraid. The powder will hide your secret, since a shiny outside edge reflects light, calling attention to your lip art the powder camouflages it. 5) If you like a subtle gloss, now is the time to apply it but do not apply it on the lip line as it will expose your fuller lip se cret. Note: If your lips are too full or wide, you can follow the above infor mation, but bring the lip stick and lip pencil just INSIDE the lip line. Do you like it? I bet you do. Want to make your lips more youthful and fuller?

Sports The Boca Raton Tribune By: Pedro Heizer BOCA RATON, FL The Fort Lauderdale Strik ers began their remote training tour this past week as the team held practice at Loggers Run Park in Boca Raton on Tuesday, August 16. The Strikers held a regular training session in front of fans and members of the Boca United youth soccer club. Once practice concluded, the Boca United youth team and parents took part in a question and answer session with the Strikers players and coaches, followed by an au tograph session for the as piring young athletes. An important aspect of our community out reach program is cement ing relationships with the youth soccer community, said Strikers President Tim Robbie. We feel the re mote training sessions are a great way of providing clubs with opportunities to get a closer look at a profes sional training session and a special opportunity to in teract with the players and coaches. Its good to play in front of my hometown fans again. I saw a few familiar faces, its great to be back here said Boca Raton na tive and Strikers defender Scott Gordon. The Strikers are cur rently in sixth place in the North American Soccer League standings but only three points separates sixth place Fort Lauderdale and third place Tampa Bay. Fort Lauderdale hosts Tampa Bay this weekend at Lockhart Stadium in a cru cial game that can change the landscape of the NASL Playoff race as the Strikers look to bring playoff soc cer to Lockhart Stadium for the first time since the Miami Fusion last played at Lockhart. Our motivation these last few games are simple, we are not in the playoffs yet. We need to keep bat tling said head coach Da ryl Shore of the playoff situation the Strikers are currently in. We are on a good run right now, and if we keep this going we will accom plish the goal we set for our selves at the beginning of Fort Lauderdale Strikers Practice in West Boca Raton the season, added Gordon. If Hurricane Irene doesnt hit south Florida, the Strikers will take on Tampa Bay F.C. on Satur day at Lockhart stadium at 7:30pm. If you cant make it to the game, make sure to tune in online to strikers. com/live. By: Chris Nelson Many of usmyself includedhave wondered why the Dolphins didn't find a true backup to Dan iel Thomas. Someone that could carry the load in the event the rookie suffers an injury, considering Reg gie Bush is more of a role player and Lex Hilliard just isn't starter material. But as Ronnie Brown and Ricky Williams and Marion Barber and Je rome Harrison and every other quality back signed elsewhere, it appeared the Dolphins were content go ing with a seemingly thin backfieldat least until fi nal cuts rolled around. However, the Dolphins have added an unlikely, for merly high-profile name in the form of ex-Chiefs and Redskins running back Larry Johnson. The Dol phins have waived running back Kory Sheets to make room for Johnson on the roster, which now stands at 85 players. Miami also reportedly worked out Johnson's for mer Washington teammate Clinton Portis on Monday. Reports from last week had Portis extremely out of shape for a workout with the Patriots. Johnson played his col lege ball at Penn State, where in 2002 he rushed for 2,000 yards on fewer carries than anyone else in NCAA history. Averag ing nearly eight yards per carry, Johnson earned the Doak Walker Award as the nation's top running back and the Maxwell Award, given to the best player in college football. Selected by the Kan sas City Chiefs in the first round of the 2003 NFL Draft against the wishes of head coach Dick Vermeil, Johnson played sparingly as a rookie before seeing significant action (and ex celling) late in the 2004 season. Out of Priest Holmes' shadow in 2005, Johnson went on a tear the next two seasons, topping 1,700 yards rushing in both 2005 and 2006 while combining for 37 touchdowns on the ground. Before the 2007 season, he signed a six-year, $45 million contract with $19 million guaranteed. Johnson, who set an NFL record with 416 car ries in 2006, saw his pro duction dip significantly as he rushed for just 559 yards on a 3.5 average in eight games in 2007. He aver aged a healthy 4.5 yards per carry the following season despite missing four games, but missed time due to vio lations of team rules. Through the first seven games of the 2009 sea son, Johnson remained the Chiefs' starting running back and averaged just 2.9 yards per carry. Follow ing a series of tweets that criticized head coach Todd Haley, a Chiefs fan, and the entire gay and lesbian com munity, the team eventually released Johnson on Nov. 10. I'm a bit conflicted on this signing, because it ab solutely fills a need. Despite what Tony Sparano says, Bush is not going to be an every-down back, meaning a backup that can carry the load is needed on the ros ter in case of an injury to Thomas. Johnson can cer tainly be that guy. My question is why the Dolphins settled for someone that hasn't shown much life in nearly three years as opposed to some one like Barber or either of the Dolphins' former veter an backs that might be able to fill in as a starter better? Obviously, Johnson is probably getting a bottombasement deal with some incentives, but it's not like the other veterans on the market signed big-money contracts either. It seems odd the Dolphins would opt for a less effective play er to save 500 grand. One thing to keep in mind for anyone getting overly excited or overly an noyed at this signing is that Johnson is by no means a lock to make the roster. He'll have less than two weeks to audition for a spot Dolphins sign former Pro Bowl RB Larry Johnson on the team, but he'll be no better than the third option in the backfield and thus is not safe from being re placed by a younger player (and one that can play spe cial teams) once final cuts are made.

The Fort Lauderdale Strikers (6-106, 28 points) were unable to extend their undefeated streak as they fell 2-0 to the NASL-leading Caro lina RailHawks (15-3-4, 48 points) at WakeMed Soccer Park on Saturday, August 20. The Strikers remain in fifth place in the NASL standings, one point behind the NSC Minnesota Stars. I thought we werent bad tonight, said Strikers head coach Daryl Shore. We missed a lot of chanc es and when you give Caro lina two goals its tough to catch up. Carolinas first goal came on an Etienne Barba ra penalty kick in the 31st minute. Strikers defender Toni Stahl was called for late tackle on Barbara in the penalty area and Bar bara was able to bury his league-leading 17th goal of the season. Fort Lau derdale had several chances to tie the game, including a point blank header by Abe Thompson which was saved by RailHawks goal keeper Brad Knighton. In the second half, the Strikers continued to have their chances, but were un able to find the net. Fort Lauderdale was victim ized on the counterat tack a second time when Carolinas Matt Watson started a give and go with Pablo Campus in the 58th minute. Watson took the return pass from Cam pos and deftly chipped a charging Matt Glaeser to put the RailHawks up 2-0. The loss is the sixth of the season for the Strikers and snaps a streak of 10 games scoring at least one goal. We have to regroup because we know we have a very important game next Saturday against FC Tam pa Bay, said Shore. The Strikers com plete their road trip 1-1-1 and will now have three straight games at home, starting with third place FC Tampa Bay on Satur day. Fort Lauderdale has six games remaining in the regular season with four of them coming at home in Lockhart Stadium. Strikers Fall To First-Place Carolina SPORTS East/West Boca Raton, FL
