Community NewsThe Boca Raton Tribune Five leaders receive OPAL awards from Rotary Club of Boca RatonBOCA RATON For a few somber minutes, Rabbi Merle Singer mesmerized a crowd at Boca Pointe Country Club Saturday night with a said story about his near-failure in school. My teacher told me, Youll be lucky if you graduate high school, said the rabbi, one of five chosen to receive an OPAL (Outstanding People and Leaders) Award from the Rotary Club of Boca Ra ton. At the time, no one realized the severity of dyslexia with which he was afflicted. And Rabbi Singer said it was the advice of a junior high school guidance counselor who pushed him to continue and to reach much success in life. He dedicated his OPAL award to that counselor. Achievement in the face of difficulty is the mark of OPAL recipients through the years. Proceeds raised at this years event, the 15th for the local Rotary, will provide scholarships to deserving local students who, as a result of difficult circumstances do not have the means to attend college. Other OPAL winners Saturday were pilot Kenneth Davis, who has found success in the real estate market and, with his plane, has helped the Cat Island Orphanage in the Baha mas; Patricia Thomas, a longtime volunteer for many area organizations; Timothy Snow, president of the George Snow Scholarship Fund which has provided more than 1,300 students with the means to attend college and Warren Orlando, chairman of the board of 1st United Bancorp and 1st United Bank. The OPAL Awards Gala is the Rotarys flag ship fund raising event with all monies delegated for scholarships, and celebrates the accomplishments of five remarkable individuals in our Community who exemplify the Club Mission of Chang ing Lives and Building Futures. Our OPAL Awards event is our most anticipated gathering of the year when we have the chance to fill a room with past OPAL honorees, community partners and leaders, business associates, friends and family who witness the energy and magic that makes Rotary such a special and important organization, said Douglas Mummaw, event co-chair and Rotary president. The Rotary Club of Boca Raton identifies scholarship candidates from the Boca Raton Community and, working in conjunction with the George Snow Scholarship Foundation, has established a vetting process with our scholarship chairman and committee. We offer our recipients a personal mentor to assist them in adjusting to college life, and beyond, he added. Our scholarship program benefits needy students from Boca Raton and surrounding communities and is flexible as to the amount awarded based upon need, scholarship and citizenship. This year scholarships were granted to both local colleges and those in other states. from left: civil service category, Rabbi Merle Singer, Kenneth Davis, for community service; Patricia Thomas, health and medicine; Tim Snow, for education and Warren Orlando, private business. see pages 19-21 561-208-6029

It accomplishes that in many ways. CAP offers flight scholarships, summer flight and glider academies, detailed aerospace curriculum and orientation flights. Boca Raton Composite Squadron Cadet Airman First Class Daniel Henao, an eighth grader at Loggers Run Middle School, took his first orienta tion flight (Oflight) out of Boca Raton Airport in a CAP Cessna 172. Here is his ac count: This was the first time I ever flew in a Cessna in my life. It was the craziest thing ever, when we lifted from the ground, I felt my heart drop and the blood rushing through my veins. My favorite thing is to fly in a plane, but it was a unique feeling to fly in a little one. Then later when we had enough air to see the horizon, the most beautiful thing I have ever seen was the reflec tion off the sun hit the edge of the earth. While flying the pilot said Im going to take the wheel and I was like wow thats awesome I actually get to fly! When I took the handles I felt the planes power going through my fingers. I remembered some advice an experienced pilot told me, that when you drive a plane, control it gently and I did. Then the CAP pilot said okay here you are going to turn right and so I did very gently. In the air when I turned against the sun I felt all its heat hitting my face. It gave me happiness while I was up there. Later the pilot told me he loved my way of flying. I was so proud of myself. I have always wanted to fly planes since I was two years old and my dad first put a toy airplane in my hand. Thats when I fell in love with airplanes. Now that Ive had my first Oflight I want to keep going to all of them, so I can learn more about planes. I learned a lot and I want solo at CAPs Power Flight Academy. First I have to be 16 years of age so the only thing is to wait. In my opinion I think flying is the best feeling anyone can have. It is my dream to get my pilots license. The Boca Raton Composite Squadron has a flight simulator so pilots and cadets can practice their skills. As part of its support of aerospace educa tion the Boca Raton Composite Squadron will be on hand to assist the Collins Foundation when they bring the WWII Bombers in to Boca Raton Airport January 27th through 31st. It is a great experience for our cadets, says Squadron Commander 1st Lt Douglas Macdonald. We are there to help with parking and greet visitors. Not only do our ca dets get to hear firsthand ac counts from area veterans, but several have actually gotten a ride in those giant birds. Civil Air Patrol, the official auxiliary of the U.S. Air Force, is a nonprofit organiza tion with 58,000 members na tionwide. CAP, in its Air Force auxiliary role, performs 90 percent of continental U.S. inland search and rescue missions as tasked by the Air Force Rescue Coordination Center and was credited by the AFRCC with saving 72 lives in fiscal year 2009. Its volunteers also perform homeland security, disaster relief and counter-drug missions at the request of federal, state and local agencies. The members play a leading role in aerospace education and serve as mentors to more than 23,000 young people currently participating in CAP cadet programs. CAP has been performing missions for America for 70 years. The Boca Raton Composite Squadron meets on Tuesday evenings from 6:30 to 9 at the Civil Air Patrol building at Boca Raton Airport.

And the article by Ben Stein, Confessions for the Holidays, speaks to and for us all: Christians, Jews, Muslims and yes, the agnostics and the atheists. We live together in our freedom to believe, to participate in religious ritual and to avoid these if we so choose. America is indeed exceptional.

This event is known as The Sweetest Party in Town and draws upwards of 800 people each year. Its a fabulous evening to taste delicious samplings from our areas hottest restaurants while helping to raise funds that benefit the projects and mission of the Junior League of Boca Raton. Sincerely, Sara Ritzler To the Editor: Thank you for using the story about the appointment of Kathy Schilling, MD, as medical director at the Christine E. Lynn Womens Health & Wellness Institute. Sincerely, Marlene Moni Communications Department Boca Raton Regional Hospital The recent sinking of the cruise ship Costa Concordia a shock in itself has proven several things about seafaring ships and about life in general. For one thing, it shows that when the chips are down, high technology can easily be trumped by human error. It also shows that no matter how hard you try to prepare for the worst, its pretty hard to stay calm and follow directions when your life is really at stake. It also proves that growing older does not mean youre becoming more mature. My wife and I love cruise ships. Our trips together have only taken us to the Caribbean, but she had already sailed to other places with her family and before we met. So she was already an experienced cruise ship passenger when we first sailed together some 20 years ago. And by the way, we have sailed on Costa not the Concordia but one of its sister ships. Each voyage on any cruise ship begins with a lifeboat drill. When we first began cruising, we noticed that this drill was taken very seriously by the crew. We would have to respond to a danger signal (a series of blasts of the ships whistle). We would actually have to put on our lifejackets and go to our muster station to be counted with all others assigned to that deck. While a lifeboat drill is not the happiest way to begin a cruise, it does show concern for our safety. Over the years, the lifeboat drill has become something of a joke. During the last cruise we took just a year ago the lifeboat drill essentially required us to go from our cabin to one of the bars. We didnt even have to check for a life jacket, let alone put it on and it is an intricate piece of equipment to fasten particularly if the ship is in trouble. I have often told my wife that no matter how organized the lifeboat drill seems to be, in case of a real emergency, the crew would toss out the playbook and run for their lives, leaving us poor passengers fending for ourselves. This appears to have happened aboard the Concordia. The captain set the tone by purposely going off course, bypassing the computer-set course and shutting down the off-course alarms. When he struck something underwater, he decided to forget the old adage about the captain going down with the ship and hightailed it for safety. This event will be a sad chapter in maritime history. First, it was so unnec essary. Second, the crew acted with such disdain toward the passengers. A number of people died in this shipwreck so tragically and without need. In a moment, a blissful sail on the ocean turned into a disaster. Many have compared this tragedy to the Titanic. But in the case of the Titanic, there were heroics. People gave away their lifejackets so others could live. Many chose not to get into lifeboats so women and children would have room. The ships band played, Nearer my God to Thee as the ship went down. The Titanic has been a legend for 100 years, spawning books, movies and documentaries. But this time, there will be no stories of heroism except for the man who gave his life jacket to his wife, saving her. There will be no movies showing brave people risking life and limb to escape from an overturned super liner. No, the legacy of the Costa Concordia will be one of gross neglect of duty; a perfect storm of inappropriate behavior and an attitude of save my own posterior first on the part of the crew. every 60 days. used as letters to the editor.Letter Guidelines By Dale King Letters to the Editor EDITORIALS/LETTERS East/West Boca Raton, FLThe Boca Raton TribuneFounded January 15, 2010 Publisher C.E.OC.O.O.

Dr. Synesio Lyra, Jr. is a Florida resident who, for many years, was a professor at the post-graduate level. 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. By Douglas Heizer EDITORIALS & LETTERS East/West Boca Raton, FL By Dr. Synesio Lyra, Jr. Capturing Your Fugitive ThoughtsFor the past several years Ive been improving my habit of not letting a day go by without recording some thoughts which, unexpectedly, enter my mind. God continues to flood my brain with new ideas which rapidly permeate my thinking. To that end, and aware of how fugitive such thoughts are, as soon as Im aware of them I swiftly apprehend them on paper, or record them on tape while they are fresh, for further clarification and expansion, besides eventual broader use. I have collected them on restaurant napkins, the back of used envelopes, small sheets of paper, as well as pads on which those thoughts are better orga nized for later, improved usefulness. These have become springboards for articles, are included in blogs I write, talks I give, and even in my teaching and preaching, whenever appropriate. Had I failed to capture those ideas and thoughts as quickly as they enter my mind, I would never find them again, nor be able to utilize them for a wider, beneficial aim. Anyone can (and should) develop the habit of thinking. Whenever that happens, at any time of day or night, regardless of where one may be, and no matter what one may otherwise be doing, the mind will overflow with an abundance of good material worthy of further exploration and development. The same also occurs while reading a book, an article, a piece of poetry, or even the daily newspa per. Whether in moments of leisure or agitation, in quietness or in noisy places, besides several other circumstances where we may be found, the mind will inevitably entertain new thoughts even if totally unrelated to what is specifically being read, heard, felt, or observed! All these are to be rec ognized as seeds God is planting in your mind to see how your creativity will be manifested, how you will recognize how far a seminal idea may advance if you follow the direc tives already implied in the thought itself. Thats why it is imperative for people to cultivate healthy mind habits from which useful ideas shall continually stem and emerge. The Bible places a high premium on thinking right thoughts, setting ones mental powers on what can lead to beneficial outcomes through inventions, writings, or any other creative endeavors. Like everything a child of God does, this activity should aim at the edifica tion of others, the advancement of Gods Kingdom, and the ultimate glory of the creator. St. Paul rightly proposed to Christs followers the practice of bring ing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ (II Corinthians 10:5b). After all, as the same apostle affirmed, we have the mind of Christ (II Corinthians 2:16b). May all we verbalize and do truly validate the origin of our words and actions!How To Have A Job You LoveBy: Robert J. Tamasy Some of us are fortunate to have jobs we truly enjoy. But accord ing to studies, the vast majority of men and women in the business and professional world dislike, even hate their jobs; at best, they tolerate what they have to do every day to earn a living. Are you among them? Would you like to be able to say with sincerity, I love my job!? What do you think it would be like to begin each day with eager anticipation, looking forward to the opportunities and challenges you will encounter at your workplace rather than with dread and anxiety? Well, I would have to change jobs! many people would agree. Perhaps, but recently I heard an intriguing sto ry that seemed to indi cate a new place to work might not necessarily be required for finding a job you love. At a cancer support group meeting I attended (my wife is a cancer survivor), a woman was telling about an inspiring person she had met while going for her treatments a valet parking attendant. This woman was amazing, she said. She truly loved her job and she loved each of us, patients at the hospital where she worked, as we would arrive each day for our appoint ments. She never failed to have a big smile and an uplifting word of encouragement for each of us. She made the greatest impression on me, the speaker at the meeting observed. She would be out there every day, even in scorch ing heat and freezing cold, focused on greeting each patient and helping to make their day a little bit brighter. Being an adminis trator for a non-profit organization, the woman telling this story thought to herself, This is the kind of person we need to hire as our new receptionist. In fact, she offered the job to the parking attendant. The woman, with her customary smile, politely declined. She explained she could never leave her job not because it paid well, but in a real sense it had become her dream job. She looked forward to each day and the opportunity to offer a kind word, give someone a needed smile, or shine a light of hope to someone desperately needing it. In a word, she saw her job as ministry. What if we each took that same attitude, viewing our work as ministry an opportunity to serve and be of help to others rather than simply a source of a paycheck or a way to fill time between weekends? But how can we do this, especially if circumstances are far from ideal? Consider this advice from the Bible: Focus on the positive. Undoubtedly, as pects of the parking attendants work are not perfect, things she might change if she could. But instead, she concentrates on oth ers. Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable if anything is excellent or praiseworthy think about such things (Philippians 4:8). Remember whom you ultimately serve. In our jobs we must envision doing our part in something much bigger than ourselves. Centuries ago, someone observed a brick mason and asked if he ever grew tired of his work. No, he replied, because Im building a cathedral. Slaves, obey your earthly masters in everything. Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord. It is the Lord Christ you are serving (Colossians 3:22-24).

Municipal NewsThe Boca Raton Tribune BOCA RATON -Linda D Jones of Boca Raton along with nine others -part of a volunteer group from Habitat for Humanity Broward recently joined forces with Jimmy and Rosalynn Carter to help build houses in Haiti for Habitat for Humanitys 28th annual Jimmy and Rosalynn Carter Work project. During the weeklong build, 500 volunteers from around the world helped to construct 100 homes in partnership with earthquake-affected families in Logne, a city 18 miles west of Portau-Prince and near the epicenter of the Jan. 12, 2010 7.0-magnitude earthquake. It was a remarkable journey and build, said Jones, volunteer house leader for Houses 116 and 117. To have the opportunity to share in this experience with other volunteers and friends from South Florida was most satisfying. Working along side the Haitian Home Partners, knowing we were making such a tremendous difference in their lives was both emotional and rewarding at the same time. There is still so much to do in Haiti; yet I felt that what we were able to accomplish in that one week was inspirational. I welcome others to become involved, if they have an opportunity, youll be a different person afterward. The build took place in the Santo community where Habitat built a total of 150 core houses in 2011. An additional 100 houses will be built on the site in 2012. The community will ultimately house 500 families displaced by the 2010 earthquake. Habitat for Humanity has made a five-year commitment to serve 50,000 Haitian families, and the Carter Work Project will help us to build homes and raise awareness to meet that goal, said Jonathan Reckford, CEO of Habitat for Humanity International. We are incredibly appreciative of the Carters and all the volunteers, sponsors and partners who are joining with us to help families in Haiti rebuild their lives. The Carters are Habitat for Humanitys most famous volunteers and give a week of their time each year to help Habitat build, renovate or repair homes, and raise awareness about the need for affordable and decent housing. They joined Habitat for Humanity in 1984 to help renovate a decaying building in New York Citys Lower East Side. Today, the building is part of a thriving, reinvigorated and dynamic community. Since that first build, the Carters and thousands of volunteers have worked with Habitat for Humanity across the United States and in Mexico, Canada, Hungary, South Africa, South Korea, India, the Philippines, Thailand, Cambodia, China, Laos and Vietnam. Jones has also partic ipated in builds across the United States, including Detroit, Los Angeles, The Gulf Coast and overseas in Mexico, India, and Thailand. Habitats Carter Work Project was the culmination of a month-long observance of the need for safe, decent and affordable shelter that began on World Habitat Day, Oct. 3. Observed annually on the first Monday of October, World Habitat Day is designated by the United Nations as a time to reflect on the dire need for adequate shelter around the globe. Habitat will kick-off the World Habitat Day observance in Washington, D.C., with a focus on rebuilding hope after disasters, highlighting the work in Haiti as an exempla ry response to the need for recovery.Boca woman volunteers for Habitat for Humanity work with Carters in Haiti Linda on right with friends in same travel group stand beneath a school that was demolished in the quake that is yet to be rebuilt.

When the deadline for qualifying arrived at 5 p.m. Jan. 11, incumbent City Council members Anthony Majhess (Seat D) and Constance Scott (Seat C) both had opponents for the March 13 balloting. Newcomer Frank Chapman filed papers early in the qualifying period to oppose Majhess. And Scott, who appeared to be on her way to an unchallenged win, drew an opponent when retired Boca Raton firefighter Bill Trinka filed to run against her shortly before the final bell tolled. I love Boca, Ive lived here 40 years 32 years in the same house, said Trinka, who is well known in the community for his activism as well as his height 6-foot-8. He said he waited until the last minute to see if anyone else was going to challenge Scott. No point in showing my cards, he said. But when it looked like no one would take that plunge, Trinka threw his hat into the arena. I see us going down the wrong road, said Scotts challenger. High density, no parking, traffic Its not easy to travel around the city. Trinka said he doesnt want Boca to become a Fort Lauderdale or a West Palm Beach. We are between two cities. We are between two major airports. I like being right here. I want to keep Boca Boca. Scott told the Boca Ra ton Tribune she is proud of my record and will run on that platform of accomplishments. She also cited her work as chairwoman of the Community Redevelopment Agency. She said she announced her re-election bid in July or August and has been raising funds since then. She said she never took for granted the possibility that she would run unopposed. I look forward to serving, she said. Majhess first won elec tive office in 2009 when he defeated former Councilman M.J. Mike in what was considered an upset. Chapman, 44, said he is a 1986 graduate of Boca Raton High School and served as an attorney until age 40 when he retired. Majhess held his reelection kick-off Dec. 29 with an event that drew between 200 and 300 people. The candidate said he took in $7,200 that night. He said the event was organized in eight days and held during a holiday seek. He noted that during the kick-off, he returned $2,500 of a $3,000 dona tion from a contributor who was tapping money from his individual corporation to endorse the candidate. That is legal, Majhess said, but he felt uncomfortable taking that amount from someone with corporate ties.

Scott is the incumbent holding Seat C on the council. Chapman is a political newcomer challenging incumbent Anthony Majhess for Seat D. Whelchel told the Boca Raton Tribune that Chapman is someone I have known for a while. She said he was a student at Boca Raton High School around the time she was a teacher there, and Chapman was a member of Student Government. She said she feels he has a very common sense approach to solving problems. Majhess said he was not surprised that she is looking to replace me with someone more sympathetic vote to hers. He also said the mayor is supporting several issues that he disagrees with in particular, off-campus student housing. As to Scott, the mayor said, She and I may not always agree on everything, but she has shown that she understands the issues. On the learning curve, she has come a long way and has also shown leadership skills. Scott faces challenger Bill Trinka in the March balloting.

B BOCA LIFE & ARTS East/West Boca Raton, FL By Diane Feen We Take Our Hats O to Brent BlackBrent Black is on a mission. He has been on this crusade since 1987 and has found his calling (both professionally and spiritually) in helping the people of Montecristi, Ecuador. It is in Montecristi that the finest Panama Hats are woven, and it is Montecristi that Black has found his craft to be perfected to a fine art. I have been working to preserve the art of Montecristi hats since 1987. I am obsessed with the very finest examples of this art. I buy the finest hats directly from the weavers, said Black, who used to be an advertising writer and creative direc tor before making mens and womens hats. The interesting thing about Black (and why he is not a heartless corporate stiff) is that he shares his success with the citizens of Montecristi. When he sells one of their handmade hats, the weavers and other artisans who created the hat receive 40 percent of the retail price. And when you realize that Black was commissioned to make a hat for Charlie Sheen for $25,000, you realize that this one man can change the lives of hundreds (if not more) people in this small village. Huge commissions were paid to the weaver and other artisans. In 2009 a king bought 21 hats priced between $10,000 and $25,000 each, it rained money in Montecristi. Have you ever tried to open bank accounts for people who cant read or write and cant sign their names? I have. Hopefully this lack of literacy will be a thing of the past. Monies raised from that large hat sale were used to build a water project for the community and Black also started a Foundation (called The Montecristi Founda tion) for projects and educa tion. Funding for Founda tion projects and programs comes from sales of Montecristi hats that are $5000 and up. Profits are then sent back to the weaving community in the form of free medical care, safety masks, eye glasses and other programs. The Foundation also receives direct donations from those who want to help. So far Black has been effective in saving the art of Montecristi hat making. People have bought hats from him in 66 countries. And he is so protective of this fine hat making tradition and reputation that he has put the word out that he is willing to wager $20,000 to anyone who can prove their Panama Hat is made better than his. I challenge anyone to show me that they make the finest Panama hat woven. I suggest we have a hat contest. Someone can bring their finest Panama hat thats possible to be woven and I will choose a hat from my inventory to prove that some of these extravagant claims are not true. How about a contest with a $20,000 entry fee and the winner takes all? For now no one has challenged Black. And so far Black continues to sell fine Panama hats by skilled hand labor from jungle plant to finished masterpiece. It takes four and a half months of skilled, focused, hand work to create a single hat, a single work of art, adds Black. We believe him. For more information about Brent Black Panama hats, or the Montecristi foundation go to: www.brentblack.com. Happy New Year 2012The decorations have been set out and displayed, taken down and put away. The shopping is done, the presents wrapped and unwrapped, cards sent and received and now tucked away. And now it is 2012. A time to change the calendar. A New Year that arrives with hope and challenges a year that holds the promise of change and improvement. And a New Year that represents a renewed hope of a better tomorrow. This is a political year, a presidential election year, which brings promises for hopes and dreams and a chance to get things done. The new year is one that is taking place amid a continuing economic downturn that has produced soaring national debt, and high unemployment. We can expect the Obama field to have a very competitive campaign this year and the Republicans to be out in front running for a hopeful victory. And so this new year promises to be a better year. There are signs of a recovery in America with a 2012 election for president in the horizon. One who will help us to get this country going in the right direction. We must keep courage and keep committed to the values that good government is based upon the individual and that each persons ability, dignity, freedom, and responsibility must be honored and recognized. The year 2012 will bring in to focus with the upcoming presidential election that the proper function of government is to do for the people those things that have to be done but cannot be done as well by individuals, and that the most effective government is government closest to the people. After the Wall Street Crash in 1929, and just as after the banking crisis of 2008, a lot of observers even thought that the worst was over. But in the summer of 1931, a wave of banking panics swept across central Europe. History can repeat itself if we are not careful. This is the time and this is the year, we must elect a republican president. The year 2012 is a year where the Democrat vision and the Republican vision are on opposite playing fields. The 2012 election will be a referendum on these two competing visions for Americas future. But with the support of each other, we will be confident the American people can face whatever challenges the new year offers.

We followed the salads with a corned beef Reuben on seeded rye bread toast a genuine Reuben with great taste the hot corned beef with sauerkraut, Swiss cheese and Russian dressing. There is also a featured Prosciutto panini and a Portobello sandwich, both juicy and flavorful. Today, there was a smooth, creamy yet lightcream of mushroom soup that we applaud!

Both pistachio encrusted mahi and pan seared tuna are also featured in the from the sea category. Under beef and poultry, we ordered the grilled NY strip done medium and the outcome was a tasteful, juicy center with a crisp surfacejust right. Topping the steak was a sundried tomato and green olive relish a nice touch. The veal cutlet pic catta proved to be the only disappointment-a almost tasteless meat that was overpowered by a strong caper sauce, much too strong, sug gest you confer with your waiter on this. Ill try the chicken breast with apricot and fig wine sauce next time.

While the hotel guests enjoy the facility, casual diners, as well, will find the food fare and service above par, so we suggest that you Go and Enjoy!BOCA RATON -Is professional wrestling an allegory for life in America? It sure is in The Elaborate Entrance of Chad Deity, running through Feb. 12 at Caldwell Theatre Company, 7901 N. Federal Highway, Boca Raton. In wrestling you have clearly defined heroes and villains. The heroes are staunch upholders of the American dream. Villains want to tear the USA apart. Part of the appeal of wrestling is that everything is so clear-cut and black-andwhite. Real life is a confusing mess of gray-scale tones. Chad Deity (Donte Bonner) is the hero of Kristoffer Diazs 2010 Pulitzer Prize-finalist play. Hero is in quotes, because Chad Deity is not a hero at all. Oh, he makes the most money and he is adored by the masses, but the real hero of the story is Macedonio Guerra, known as The Mace (Brandon Morris). Mace is a professional bad guy. He is costumed in the garb of whatever ethic group we are hating at the moment. Mace sets the stage by talking about his childhood in the Bronx; how he and his brother ate sugary cereals and played with wrestling figures. Dont call them dolls, please. Mace grew up to be a very good wrestler; so good it becomes his job to make lesser wrestlers appear better than they are. Wrestling is all about team work, Mace explains. If you dont work together, someone could get hurt. Maces love of wrestling is so lofty he likens it to an art form, like ballet, performed by 300-pound bruisers. It is Maces job to make Chad Deity look good. Chad is handsome, confident, with gym-sculpted body. He drapes himself, literally, in the American flag. He is the star of THE Wrestling company. His action figures and T-shirts make buckets of money for the crass promoter Everett K. Olsen, known as E.K.O. (Gregg Weiner). EKO knows what sells. When Mace brings in a charismatic upstart from Brooklyn, EKO smells money. No matter that Vigneshwar Paduar is of Indian descent, or that his sport is basketball. VP has presence. People stand up and take notice. EKO cooks up a new script. Mace plays the villain as usual, but this time he is an America-hating Mexican called Che Chavez Castro. VP is a vaguely Mideastern Muslim character called The Fundamentalist. Boo! Hiss! Chad Deity is extremely funny in its portrayal of the ridiculous extremes of wrestling, yet playwright Diaz salutes the men who play the roles. For authenticitys sake, a real wrestler named Matthew Schaller plays three stereotypical heroes. You dont have to care a fig about wrestling to love Chad Deity. My brother and I watched wrestling on television when we were kids mostly for the comedy and entertainment value. Later, brother Richard got to know several professional wrestlers. They were hardworking stiffs like anyone else. Chad Deity is a lefthanded salute to the people of wrestling and a scathing commentary on Americas greed, materialism and jingoism, but above all its is an amazing theatrical spec tacle that will make you laugh, jeer, gasp and feel both shame and pride. In the swift course of under two hours, director Clive Cholerton presents a microcosm of the paradox that is the good old USA. Tickets are $27-$50.

Just within the last year, six Original Brooklyn Water Bagel restaurants have opened and 13 locations are in different stages of development. By Gerald J. ShermanTraining is the Road to People DevelopmentAt a training seminar I conducted several years ago in Dallas, Texas, I was criticized by Stanley Marcus, former president and Chief Executive officer of Neiman Marcus Department Stores. He was adamant that the word, training, is for animals and not to be used for people. He thought the word training was demeaning. I deferred to his seniority but still stand in respect of Websters dictionary which defines training as to instruct so as to make proficient or qualified. Throughout time, we have found that the word training has remained a via ble description for educating and improving the skills of people. We train the military, we train emergency personnel on disaster response, nurses on hospital procedures and we train our personnel on methods and techniques. Training is a vital part of managements job. It allows the employee to prac tice methods in a stress free environment where errors can be observed and corrected without costing the company in lost business. Training includes much more than methodology; it must also include informa tion on existing and new services/products, technological updates, and prac tices in written and verbal communication. Dont assume that things you mention to an employee are training. Training should be organized and ongoing. In order to be successful in todays marketplace, the employee should not only manage their time effectively but also be able to operate their own virtual office. In this electronic age of the Internet, cell phones, laptop computers, and webbased video conference calls, employees must be proficient with the various software programs and devices that are involved in their job function. The type of training in the past will not work today training today must be directed to make the employee more knowledgeable and attuned to the needs or wants of the target market. For example, in sales, the sales manager who formulates a training program which focuses on a solid foundation of selling methodology allows the salesperson to practice their sales presentation, and offers ways to answer common objections, is sure to see a marked increase in performance and closing rate as a result. There is nothing wrong with salespeople learning how to develop methods in which to close sales and gain relationships. We are not talking about using trick methods or gimmicks these selling techniques are dinosaurs that belong to the distant past and will never work in todays market. What we are talking about is raising the salespersons awareness of the mechanics of the sale, the personal selling methods, the presenta tion expertise and the ways to negotiate a sale. Whether it is a product or service related, all orga nizations need to make provisions for formal training. Have you ever gone into a business and been turned off by the receptionists attitude? Training programs that include speaking skills and writing skills are more in demand today because many employees are not properly trained in these two essential tools. Companies that are getting the edge over competition are incorporating communication training as part of the training program. Show me a successful business and I will show you an ongoing training program focusing on product knowledge, people skills (empa thy training), selling skills, mathematical skills, individual management skills and communication skills. The training program must encompass all facets of the business in order to provide the employee with a wellrounded foundation upon which to build his or her job function. The bottom line is that we are in the people development business. As you build the skills of your people so will you build the business. Should the word training sessions trouble you like it did Mr. Marcus, you can call them motivational sessions, learning seminars, etc. or as Shakespeare wrote, Whats in a name? That which we call a rose by any other name would smell as sweet. Excerpts from the book, The Real World Guide to Selling & Management, Gerald J. Sherman & Sar S. Perlman.

Problem with Deadbeat HusbandQ My deadbeat exhusband told me when we got divorced 15 years ago that he would make sure that I never got a penny of the alimony or child support the judge awarded me in the trial. He now owes me about $350,000. I started to try to collect years ago, but he disappeared. I just found him living in North Florida, under another name, with another woman; they are not married. He lives in a huge home, worth a million dollars, which is in her name, in a golf course community. The records show that the house has no mortgage. I can prove that all the money that went into the house came from the deadbeat. I can not find any assets in his name. Can I collect anything, by getting at the money that he has in the house? A It might be possible to force the sale of the home, but you have a few hurdles to get over. As she owns the home, you must first prove that putting the home in her name involved a fraudulent transfer of the money to buy the home, or the home itself. First you must prove that you are a creditor, which seems apparent. You must join both your ex and the woman in your lawsuit, and serve process. Secondly, you have to prove your ex-husband is insolvent, or became insolvent by transferring the property to his girlfriend, without receiving anything of equivalent value for the home. If you can con vince the judge of these facts, the court can give you remedies to help you collect. An injunction can issue to prevent the home from being sold, mortgaged, or given away. A receiver can be appointed. An order can be entered setting the transfer to the woman aside; the home can be attached, forcing its sale. The homeowner and your former husband will try using the homestead provisions of the Florida Constitution as a defense. The homestead protection prevents legitimate creditors, such as you, from collecting from the forced sale of the defen dants home. If you can prove the fraudulent transfer, you may be able to get around the homestead defense, as the title was never legitimately in the woman, and was no longer in the ex-husband. There are some cases in lower appellate courts that alimony or child support can trump homestead, but that has yet to be approved by the Florida Supreme Court. He might be able to raise the defense of laches, which is simi lar to a statute of limi tations. However, if you have been actively pursuing you claims through the years, and he intentionally hid from you by using an assumed name, you will be able to defeat that defense. What Are You Worried About?Two businessmen were talking about the uncertainties of the current economic climate. Jack said, Im about to lose my job and our house is in foreclosure but I dont worry about it. His friend Bob asked, How can you not be worried? Jack answered, Ive hired a professional worrier. He does all my worrying for me. That way I dont have to worry! What do you pay for that service? Bob asked him. $50,000 a year, Jack answered. Hearing this, Bob gasped, $50,000! Where are you going to get that kind of money? Jack replied, I dont know. Thats his worry! WORRY IS SOMETHING YOU LEARNED TO DO. There is no such thing as a born worrier. It is a learned response to life. You learned to worry from two sources: 1. You learned to worry from experience. After years of mistakes, failures and unfulfilled hopes and expectations, you have discovered that things do not always turn out the way we want or expect them to. Out of these experiences, you formed the habit of worrying. 2. You learned to worry from examples. There are many models around you. Studies show that children usually pick up their parents worries. Anxious, fearful parents raise anxious, fearful kids. The good news is that since worry is a learned response to life, it can be unlearned! The starting point for overcoming worry is to realize one basic, universal truth: it is useless. You derive no benefit from worrying. It is stewing without doing. Worry has never changed anything. Worry cannot change the past. Worry cannot control the future. Worry only makes you miserable today. Worry has never solved a problem, it has never paid a bill, and has never cured an illness. It only paralyzes you, inhibiting your ability to take proper remedial steps, so you cant work on the solution. Worry is like rac ing a car engine in neutral it doesnt get you anywhere, it just uses up fuel. As Proverbs 12:25 tells us, An anxious heart weighs a man down. On top of that, worry exaggerates the problem. It plays on your imagination. Have you ever noticed that when you worry about a problem, it seems to get big ger and more difficult to solve? Every time you repeat your concern over and over in your mind, you tend to add details and increase its intensity amplifying the situa tion so you feel worse. So what is the solution? Instead of worrying, talk to God about what is worrying you. He is someone perhaps the only One who can do something about it. Dont worry about anything. Instead pray about everything; tell God what you need and dont forget to thank him for his answers. If you do this you will experience Gods peace, which is far more wonderful than the human mind can understand (Philippians 4:67). Rick Warren is the author of the highly ac claimed, best-selling book, The PurposeDrive Life, which has been translated into many languages and sold throughout the world. It affirms the importance of having a carefully considered, clearly expressed purpose to guide everyday life.By Rick Warren TheBocaRatonTribune.com

Auntie Faye liked to sing. She was an opera singer in her younger days. It was nothing for her to hit the high C notes on the voice scale. And she even knew show business, too. One of her girlhood friends was the famous Mae West, known for that greater line, Come up and see me sometime. Auntie Faye had style and grace. She was a savvy, frugal businesswoman. She and her family moved to Hot Springs, Ark., from Atlantic City, N.J., to open a jewelry store there. Auntie Faye traveled to Florida on occasion, especially during winter months. One time, she and my mother shared a vaca tion in Florida. And thats where the story begins. When I was 12, Auntie Faye had me as her luncheon guest at a popular deli in South Beach. It was a crowded eating place. Great atmosphere, loaded with tourists, and expensive; a place where celebrities went to be seen. We had a delightful meal. At that time, the price was 75 cents per person for soup, salad and sandwich. That translates to about $12-$15 per person at todays prices. Then came dessert. Auntie Faye asked the waiter, What is really good for dessert? She certainly wanted to treat me well, no doubt. The waiter replied, We are world famous for our baked apples. Its the best in all of Florida. He went on to tell all the positive selling features about it. Why, he said, I even eat the baked apples myself. What a salesman. Yep, that did it. Auntie Faye ordered a baked apple for each of us. I still remember her saying it was the absolute best baked apple she ever had, anytime, anywhere. That is, until the luncheon check arrived. Auntie Faye looked at the price of the baked apple. I still remember her shouting, What! 95 cents for a baked apple? And thats when her vocals hit the fan. She let out an ear-splitting shrill that was heard throughout the restaurant. It sounded like the walls were crashing down or a fire alarm went off. In my minds eye, I can still see many people bolting out of their seats and literally stampeding for the nearest exit. What pandemonium, and what a voice to go with it! Well, the rest is history. Auntie Faye reluctantly paid the bill, but only after getting a 25 cent reduction on the price of each baked apple. Her error was in not asking for the price before ordering. If she knew the price beforehand, there would not have been a problem. We truly enjoyed the lunch, the food and the ambiance of each others company. And, yes, those were great baked apples. A smart person should review all the information, including prices, before buying a product or service. Sometimes, price is only a small part of the overall package to be considered. The old saying, You get what you pay for, eliminates cutting corners that may lead to trouble. Although at times, depending on the situation, you may pay more than the going rate, because you feel it is well worth the price. Think about sports events, charitable affairs, theatre or meetings where food is sold. You may want something to eat, even though perhaps you pay more than the usual going rate, because you want it now, not later. So, the next time you order food, think of good ol Auntie Faye and her baked apple story. She let everyone know how she felt in grand old opera style. But in the end, she paid the bill anyway because the dessert was worth it. Many years later, Auntie Faye recalled the incident and told me that it was the best baked apple she ever ate.By Mayor Bernard Featherman Copyright 2011Bernard Featherman.

Coach Spos ImprovementsBy: Matt Pineda Erik Spoelstra took a lot of heat last season for the failures throughout the regular season and finals. Despite the HEAT winning 58 games, Spoelstra was always under the eye of the media, for they thought he wasnt good enough for the position. Even people in Miami began to question whether he was the right guy from time to time with Pat Riley looking from above. But Spoelstra kept his job, took this team to the finals in the first season (w/ James & Bosh), and he has improved his wins each sea son with the team. And now, Spoelstra used part of his off-sea son picking the brains of some very talented coaches to better himself as a leader. Its been obvious that Spo has made some chang es. Here are several ways that Spo has improved his abilities as coach in a tangible way. Depth Miami was severely hurt last season as Wade, James, and Bosh played heavy, heavy minutes in the regular season. Although they needed to learn each other, it was a burden knowing they would continue to play through June. This year, Spoelstra has been able to reach down the bench. He and Riley made the tough call to keep young guys Terrel Harris and Mickael Gladness instead of veteran Eddie House. Spo has used Harris in times to help with depth, but also seeing James Jones, Battier, and the rookie Norris Cole, there is an improved rotation. There is balance with Haslems minutes, and things will get even better once Mike Miller returns. Spoelstra has been able to limit the minutes of the Big 3 for the most part, not reaching over 40 minutes very often, and that is an improvement that will yield its fruits in the playoffs. Rotations One of the obvious deficiencies last season was Spoelstras hard rotations. It was always so obvious when guys would come out, and come back in. This year, Spo has loosed the reigns a bit. There is still a standard rotation as far as James playing the whole first and third quarters, but Bosh and Wade leave at different times each game. Sometimes its with 5 minutes left, sometimes its 2:30. He has allowed to flow of the game to be a part of that. Hes also allowed Chalmers and Cole to determine who plays in the final minutes of the game by whoever is playing better that night. He isnt afraid to change things up, that was clear with his recent benching of Joel Anthony. End of Game The HEAT took huge criticism for their late game execution last season. There were lots of numbers and stats all pointing to the HEAT being terrible in the clutch. So far this season, they havent been all that bad, and much of it goes to the coach. Spoelstra has changed things in his approach. So far this season weve seen the ball in Dwyane Wades hands to make the play. Once in Charlotte where Wade was able to score on an isola tion, and that was a success. The coach allowed his best closer to close. Last year, it was often LeBron in isolation, and Spo has learned that is not always their best chance. And despite their failures at the Clippers, the HEAT ran pretty good plays at the end of the game, they just missed free throws. Spo has gotten LeBron to take it to the rim and get fouled, and thats an improvement over a jumper or whatever else he would do. Next time, the free throws should fall. They arent always successful, but Spoelstra has improved the HEATs chances of winning at the end of games. Commitment He has gotten everyone to buy into his system, both offensively and defensively. That isnt necessarily a change from last year, but hes got the stars from the top buying into defense and its causing this team to win. This is the greatest attribute to Spoelstras resume. Overall, he has done several things to improve his abilities as a coach. He can only do so much though, much of it rests on the players performance. But one thing is clear, with Riley giving an extension to Spoelstra, his job is not in jeopardy this season. He is doing a much better job, and fans should have trust the Erik knows what he is doing, and has improved. Heres to hoping that Coach Spoelstra gets his first Championship as a Head Coach this season.

Florida Tech used an 8-2 run of its own to pull to within eight, 53-45. A pair of LU turnovers late in the game aided FITs bid for the comeback victory with Briauna Hagins knocking down a jumper in the paint to make it a one-point game, 63-62 with 1:04 remaining. Harvey, though, made the play of the game with 25 ticks on the clock as she blocked Panthers leading scorer Ashton McClairens lay-up attempt to preserve the victory.
