With no hospital in Boca Raton at that time, the Drummonds tragedy spurred a groundswell of concern by local residents for creation of a medical fa cility in the rapidly growing city. In September 1962, 351 civic-minded residents gathered to charter an organiza tion whose mission would be to raise funds for the hospital and subsequently serve as the institutions volunteer arm. Out of devastating personal loss and pressing community need, the Debbie-Rand Memorial Service League was created. And so, too, were the fundraising seeds sown that would eventually result in the creation of what is now known as Boca Raton Regional Hospital. It opened its doors as Boca Raton Community Hospital in 1967. September of 2012 marks the 50th anniversary of the Debbie-Rand Memorial Service League, an orga nization which has contributed more than $30 million to the hospital during the last half-century. From very humble beginnings, the Debbie-Rand Memorial Service League has grown into a critically important component of Boca Regional, said Debbie Leising, current president of the D-RMSL. The contributions we have made financially and through volunteer support of the daily operations of the hospital have played a significant role not only in the building of the institution but also in its evolution to a preeminent, regional referral medical center. With a current active roster of nearly 1,200 individuals, the D-RMSL constitutes one of the largest hospital-based volunteer organizations in the nation. In the past five decades, League volunteers have given nearly eight million hours of service to the Hospital and the patients it serves. The League maintains a host of initiatives, such as its well-known Thrift Shop and the Hospital Gift shop, which generate funds to support Boca Regional. The League also coordinates all volunteer services.

The crowd gathered for a champagne and hors doeuvres reception at the Boca Raton Resort & Clubs Beach Club at 900 South Ocean Boulevard. They then boarded trolleys that embarked to the Spaniard Restaurant in Boca Raton, 50 Ocean atop Bostons in Delray Beach and then back to Mizner Park in Boca Raton, where the tourists visited two adjoining eating and drinking places, the Dubliner and Kapow. The evening concluded at the Beach Club with dessert and dancing. Mother Nature rained on the trolley pa rade as it left the Beach Club, but the precipitation finally ebbed, making way for some high humidity. The trolleys, however, were equipped with cold beverages for the tour. Committee members spent the summer working on this event to ensure a variety of restaurants and scenes. The committee was chaired by Dawn Zook and Lindy Harvey, and members included: Denise Alman, Lisa Vander Ploeg, Kathy Qualman, Elizabeth Ragland, and Diane Robertson. Toasts, Tastes & Trolleys provided a wonderful opportunity for a group of friends to get together. Everyone enjoyed the cama raderie and special food and drinks at each location. And the fun benefits the Boca Raton Historical Society & Museum, stated Mary Csar, its executive director. Event sponsors included Madelyn Savarick, who sponsored two trolleys in honor of her 89th birthday; the Boca Raton Resort & Club, E.M. Lynn Foundation, 1st United Bank, George Brown and Linda Davidson, Robert G. Campbell, Fairman & Associates, Florida IBM Club, Vander Ploeg & Associates, Dr. and Mrs. Steven Alman, Flossy Keesely, Paradise Bank, and Rick and Kathy Qualman. Toasts, Tastes & Trolleys is the Historical Societys major fall fundraiser. Proceeds will fund its programs for the community: childrens history programs, history tours and lectures, care of the historic collections, historic preservation efforts in the community and the maintenance and repair of Town Hall, the F.E.C. Railway Station, Count de Hoernle Pavilion and the rail cars of the Boca Express Train Museum.Boca Raton Historical Society Executive Director Mary Csar, right, with Madelyn Savarick, who was presented with a cake in honor of her 89th birthday. see pics pg.

6 Edition 116 September 27, 2012 through October 2, 2012www.bocaratontribune.com BOCA RATON -Lynn University, one of the 270 schools listed in the national universities category in U.S. News & World Reports 2013 Americas Best Colleges rankings, again found itself atop the list for having one of the highest percentages of interna tional students in the nation. With 18 percent of Lynns student body hailing from 80 countries around the world, Lynn ranked fourth for having the highest percentage of interna tional students. Only The New School, Florida Institute of Technology and Illinois Institute of Technology had higher numbers than Lynn. In the 2012 rankings, Lynn moved up from the Regional Universities category to the National Universities category, which increased both Lynns prestige and competition. National universities, as categorized by U.S. News, offer a full range of undergraduate majors, plus masters and Ph.D. programs and emphasize faculty research. The percentage of international students at Lynn continues to grow each year. In U.S. News list, Lynn reported 17 percent international students, up from 15 percent in 2011 and 14 percent in 2010. We expect to see our percentage of international students rise even more in 2014, said Gareth Fowles, Lynns vice president of enrollment management. This year, we welcomed 164 new international students to campus. Thats a 43 percent increase compared to last fall. This fall, Lynn welcomed one of the largest classes on record, and interna tional students represented one of the largest areas of growth. Although Lynn officially reported that 18 percent of its student body is made up of international students, the university actually boasts 25 percent international students if you include the students with dual citizenship (with both the United States citizenship and citizenship in another country). To further enhance its international profile, Lynn created a new Interna tional Office this year that will oversee visa processing, orientation and support of international students attending Lynn and directed the launch of a new Center for Learning Abroad (CLA). We are dedicated to recruiting and serving the international student population on Lynns campus, said Fowles. We see the importance of dialogue between foreign and domestic students, and we work to foster those relationships in and out of the classroom. This year, international students at Lynn are being given a special opportunity to witness the American political process first-hand. With Lynns dedication to internationalism, it is appropriate that the university will host the third and final presidential debate focused on foreign policy on Oct. 22.The Boca Raton Tribune COMMUNITY NEWS East/West Boca Raton, FL Community News U.S. News Ranks Lynn Fourth for Percentage of International Students Pet Loss Support Group Meets Third Thursday of Month in WPBLosing a beloved pet can be a traumatic and heart-breaking experience.

Sincerely, Laura Stephens Lynn University Media RelationsAll letters to the editor should be sent to: The Boca Raton Tribune, P.O. Box 970593 Boca Raton, FL 33497It just hit me that Boca Raton is marking some major milestones as we move toward the end of 2012. The biggest event of the week, of course, was the 100th birthday celebration of Henrietta, Countess de Hoernle. She is an amazing woman with an amazing life and a very generous heart. Ive always been impressed that she is so humble and approachable, with a sense of humor that is unmatched. She stayed through the entire party at Boca West Country Club Monday night, and even offered a whimsical comment at the end. She said that since she has turned 100 years of age, she is no longer Countess de Hoernle, but Countess de Antique. It got quite a laugh from those in the crowded room. The Countesss goal Monday night was to raise money for charity. At the end of the evening, the organizers named the five organiza tions that will share about a quarter-million dollars collected at the event. These include: Boca Helping Hands, Family Promise, Gulfstream Goodwill Industries, HomeSafe and the Spirit of Giving Network. Also being celebrated is the 50th anniversary of the Debbie-Rand Memorial League, established a half-century ago by Gloria and Robert Drummond in honor of their children, Debra and James Randall, who died of accidental poisoning. The Drummonds led the charge to create Boca Raton Regional Hospital so Boca would have a local medical facility. Their children might have been saved if a local hospital was available. We commend the work of both the DebbieRand League and the Countess. They have both worked to make Boca a better place for all. FAU Has Massive Economic Impact Florida Atlantic University recently notified the media that it has an estimated $6.3 billion annual impact on its six-county service region, according to a project report led by Khi Thai, Ph.D., FAU professor of public administration, and designed by William B. Stronge, Ph.D., FAU professor emeritus of economics. FAU clearly fulfills the responsibility of servicing and engaging in the lives of the communities on many different levels, said FAU President Mary Jane Saunders. This university is dedicated to economic development, research and community engagement and will continue to expand upon these areas in the years to come. According to the report, FAU is a major economic driver as a purchaser of goods and services from private business and an employer of 3,543 men and women who spend their income in the local market. FAU graduates and students also hold jobs in the region, and alumni, students and visitors alike purchase goods and services in the local economy.

This is so whenever it becomes convenient for the accuser to maintain his or her belligerence to ward another! Sadly, this happens more frequently than it should, whether among family members, in residential neighborhoods, in the work place, and within religious institutions. When such attitudes persist, unnecessary trouble erupts, allowing unpleasant situations which could be more quickly resolved, to be prolonged interminably to the disadvantage of all concerned. Personal conflicts can easily occur. Sometimes, simple misunderstandings can lead to major contentions which retard, and often prevent, permanent, satisfactory solutions. Sadly, this stems from personal pride and other negative forces operative among the participants involved! Nevertheless, no personal controversy should ever be initiated and pursued, unless there is a predisposi tion on the part of the contenders to seek a sound conclusion, or reach a reasonable compromise, leading to a swift resolution! One must strive to establish an expiration date for any hot topic under discussion, any issue difficult to resolve! When such is not the case, one contemplates two losers when both could be genuine winners! Prolong ing any hostility tends to complicate matters because new issues are often added to the conflict, more fuel to the fire, when true reconciliation should remain the uppermost objective to be reached! In such battles, carried on with negative attitudes, no one will ever be the winner. Yet, both can be triumphant by swallowing their pride, abandoning their stubbornness, and by taking positive steps forward in a reconciling attitude through dealing with the issues more creatively! Everybody makes mistakes and, on that account, every person deserves more understanding and forgiveness. This applies to individuals in any sector of society, and to nations at every corner of the earth! Let there be peace on earth, as each inhabitant of this planet takes personal initiative in acting in a more proactive, peaceful fashion, both to avoid entering into an unnecessary fight, as well as in finding positive solutions to battles which need not continue! 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. Jim Mathis wrote a great column this week that I thought I would share with you all that talks about how you should love what you do and not be looking forward to retirement your entire life. Have a great week and God Bless, Douglas Heizer We live in interesting times as business and professional people. I am a part of a generation in the United States that has been given the nickname of Baby Boomers, and for many of us, the primary aim at work is to retire. Case in point, I recently overheard a conversation at a party. A man who was nearing retirement commented that he could hardly wait until he could quit his work. He said he hated his job and the only reason he continued going to work each day was he needed the money. I did not say anything to him, but my thought was, What a pitiful way to live. I cannot imagine going through life hating what I spend the greatest portion of my time doing. Some jobs are more rewarding than others. But even when I experience discourag ing days, I still love what I do. At times in my life the work I was doing might not have not been inspiring, but the people I encountered on a daily basis were inspiring to know and interact with. When I hear people talking yearningly about retirement, I always think about the intrinsic value of work. In fact, there are many references in the Bible that speak to the nobility of work. Colossians 3:23, for instance, says we are to work with all our hearts at whatever we do. After all, it says, ultimately we are working as for the Lord. The Old Testament book of Ecclesiastes has many admonitions to work hard and enjoy it. Ecclesiastes 3:22 says,So I saw that there is nothing better for a person than to enjoy their work, because that is their lot. For who can bring them to see what will happen after them? In the popular paraphrase of the Bible, The Message, it says, So I made up my mind that theres nothing better for us men and women than to have a good time in whatever we do thats our lot. Work may be difficult and challenging, but God designed work also to be enjoyed. Proverbs 22:29 says, Do you see someone skilled in their work? They will serve before kings. You might say the secret to success is to do good work and then show it to people. Today we call that product and marketing. I believe the emphasis should be put on the product and not the effort to persuade people to purchase it. In other words, Make good stuff. If you do, you will have no trouble selling it. When we work in this way, the idea of retiring becomes much less appealing. In fact, I am not at all looking forward to a time when I may not be physically able to do what I do. When I get to that point I might have to stop out of necessity; but I do not intend to stop working just because the calendar says I have put in enough time. Connecting retirement with how much money a person has saved also seems like a rather trivial pursuit. There is very little guidance from the Scriptures on the subject of retirement. The word is rarely used, and when it is, it means to withdraw. Is the main goal of work simply to reach a time when you can withdraw from productive living? The only ac tual reference to retirement in the Bible pertains to Levites, priests instructed to retire at the age of 50 but even then they were to continue to assist younger priests. The idea of retiring as we know it today is a recent phenomenon, largely a 20th century idea brought on by longer life spans and the Industrial Revolution. Only in the past 60 years or so has retirement become something many people would aspire to. Only a few generations back, retirement was thought of as too old to work or being put out to pasture. Unless you are ready to be put out to pasture, learn to enjoy your work!I Cannot Wait Until I Retire

Police said the first crime happened on Sept. 20 just before 9 p.m. Boca Raton Police officers responded to an automobile burglary in the 800 block of Aurelia Street. The victim was sitting in his car with the engine off when an unknown male opened the passenger door and started to reach for the glove box. The victim spoke to the suspect, who fled east on Aurelia Street. While K9 was tracking, a witness told officers they saw a male matching the suspect description drop a wallet while running east. The wallet belonged to Stephen Rodriguez, who lives in the neighborhood. Officers located Rodriguez several blocks away. Officers arrested Rodriguez and charged him with burglary to a conveyance.

The suspect, who was kneeling on the floor outside her bedroom door, was bowing and waving his arms up and down, and said he wanted to talk to her. He said he was her neighbor, Stephen Rodriguez, and she needed to talk to him. The victim asked the suspect to leave and he did. Officers checking the area located Rodriguez a few blocks away. Rodriguez ran from officers, but they were able to apprehend him after a short foot chase. The victim identified Rodriguez as the person who was inside her home.

Boca Raton Police Services detectives also charged Shuman with burglary, grand theft and fraudulent use of a credit card.

15 Edition 116 for news 24/7 go to bocaratontribune.com September 27, 2012 through October 2, 2012www.bocaratontribune.com BOCA RATON Margo Joy, a Boca Raton singer, songwriter, cantor, model, medium and healer, has written about 1,000 songs in her lifetime. Her latest musical endeavor is perhaps the one she is most proud of, for it celebrates the life and generosity of a famed Boca Raton philanthropist, Henrietta, Countess de Hoernle, who celebrated her 100th birthday Sept. 24. The song, called Give while you live, is based on one of the Countess most fa mous admonitions, Give while you live so youll know where it goes. Ms. Joy debuted the song during High Holiday services at The All Peoples Synagogue in Fort Lauderdale, where she is the cantor. She sang it during services on Sept. 16 and 17, and performed it again during Yom Kippur rites Tuesday, Sept. 25 and Sept. 26. She said the services were offered free and there was no charge for parking. All Peoples Synagogue uses a church building at 301 East Broward Boulevard, Fort Lauderdale, for its ceremonies. These were special interfaith services for the Jewish and those of other faiths, said the multi-talented Ms. Joy. She will also sing the special melody on Oct. 24 at St. Jude Church in West Boca Raton, which is sponsoring a special commemorative luncheon in honor of the Countess 100th birthday. Boca Raton artist and sculptor Yaacov Heller, instrumental in bringing Ms. Joy and the Countess together, told the Boca Raton Tribune about the young ladys performance and other happenings at the Rosh Hashanah ceremony. At the High Holiday service at All Peoples Synagogue, Cantor Margo Joy, for the first time in public, sang the song she wrote for Countess Henrietta de Hoernles 100th birthday. The song, Give While You Live, was received with ovations from the crowd and spiritual leader Rabbi Loring Frank, Heller told the Tribune. She has sung the tune for the Countess, and also performed Time to Say Goodbye, a favorite of Bocas royal lady. Heller also recounted how the relationship developed between Ms. Joy and the Countess. I made a gold angel pendant for the Countess, he said. She asked me to have it blessed for her. I told her about Margo and sent her a bio about her special gifts as a spiritual healer. Margo did a hands-on healing transferring healing energy to the angel pendant. The Countess said she felt the energy immediately upon wearing it and said she would never take it off, Heller said. After getting to know the Countess, Ms. Joy said, Id love to write a song for you. She chose the Boca philanthropists key phrase and put it to music to honor the Countess. The song is very special, and she is very special, Ms. Joy said. The creation of her first musical album is another special project for the Boca performer. It is being produced by Tony Bongiovi, a cousin of pop music performer Jon Bon Jovi. (Bongiovi is the correct spelling of their family name.) Heller is also involved and will provide art for the project. In addition to her work as a cantor, Ms. Joy is a medium and a healer. She has a counseling website, www.healingvisions. org.Boca Woman Inspired by Countess Writes Special Song for Her 100th Birthday Margo Joy Edition 116 B3 September 27, 2012 through October 2, 2012 www.bocaratontribune.com Boca Life & Arts Section B Shred-A-Thon Boca Raton Lions Club Shred Trust Celebrating Henrietta, Countess de Hoernles 100th Birthday

18 Edition 116 September 27, 2012 through October 2, 2012www.bocaratontribune.com It would be unfortunate if people thought Wont Back Down is simply an anti-union film. There have already been union protests about this film from Walden Media, the same company that produced the doomsday education system documentary Waiting for Superman. Wont Back Down is a fictional drama, co-written and directed by Daniel Barnz (Phoebe in Wonderland) and inspired by Californias 2010 parent trigger law, in which parents attempt to take over failing public schools. The drama is about two mothers. Jamie Fitzpatrick (Maggie Gyllenhaal) is a single mom with a daughter Emily (Malia Fitzpatrick) with dyslexia. Jamie works hard as a bartender and struggles to help her daughter do her schoolwork. Nona Alberts (Viola Davis) is a teacher at the Pittsburgh school Emily attends. Nona, too, has a child with a learning disability. Cody Alberts (Dante Brown) has suffered brain damage. The elementary school Emily attends is one of the worst schools in town, and Emily is stuck with one of its worst teachers: Deborah (Nancy Bach). Deborah is lazy, apa thetic, and treats the kids with malice. You would think in the real world Deborah would be fired, but according to this scenario, the union protects her and her job regardless. Im hoping this is just exaggeration for dramatic effect, but you dont go to this movie for its melodramatic, then rah-rah story, you go for the powerful performances of Maggie Gyllenhaal and Viola Davis. As a bonus you get Rosie Perez in her first film role in some time, and a boo-hiss performance by Holly Hunter as the teachers union head, Evelyn Riske. Frankensteins Pup Writer-director Tim Burton was inspired by the famous 1931 version of Frankenstein, starring Boris Karloff, for his blackand-white stop-action animated comedy, Frankenweenie. Burton pays tribute to many more famous monster and horror films in a story about a boy who brings his beloved dog back to life after a traffic accident. I loved the monster and horror movies of my youth (they never scared me), and this is a very funny and clever tribute to those films. Charlie Tahan voices Victor Frankenstein, a boy whose beloved dog Sparky gets run over in traffic. Like the Frankenstein monster, Sparky comes back to life, scarred and stitched-up. Like Frankenstein, Sparky unintentionally wreaks havoc in the town of New Holland. Winona Ryder voices Victors next-door neighbor, Elsa van Helsing, who has a pet poodle, who through another electrical procedure, gets a hairdo like the Bride of Frankenstein. Frankenweenie has a great cast of celebrity voices including two stars of famous horror films: Martin Landau as the Vincent Price-like weird science teacher who encourages Victor to experiment, and Christopher Lee as the voice of Dracula. Others are Catherine OHara as Victors mom and several other voices; Martin Short as his dad Ben Frankenstein, and Atticus Shaffer as Edgar Gore, the Igor-like classmate of Victors who is Weird Girls (Catherine OHara) potential love interest. Frankenweenie, the first stop-motion picture in 3-D and IMAX formats, is a project near and dear to Tim Burtons heart. The affection shows. Even monsters need love. Three and a half stars Of the 25 appetizers we chose to sample the tuna tataki fresh, sweet tuna in form of a blooming rose, surrounded by cucumber halves in a presentation with sesame seeds and scallions. We sampled fried meat dumplings lightly browned and delicious, the steamed vegetable dumplings were extremely juicy with very light flavor. The deep fried soft shell crab was heavily breaded but flavor came through. Of the 9 soups listed, we tasted the miso, the hot and sour, the wonton and the seafood soup. Miso was light with full flavor, the hot and sour had nice, complex taste, the wonton floated in a rich broth and the seafood was shrimp, scallop, pea pods and carrots in a very light broth. All are recommended. A large portion of mu shu pork, assembled tableside by your server, is encased in soft pancakes and has a rich full bodied taste excellent! This one of 8 pork dishes listed on the menu. The 10 beef offering included yellow curry beef very gentle medium spice (can be ordered mild or hot) with pepper, onions and carrots with white rice. Just a bit of a bite! Sushi and sashi combination some 13 pieces including tuna, salmon, shrimp, kani (imitation crab meat)and California roll was fresh, chilled and perfect. The poultry list of 18 items includes duck 3 ways Peking, China Town style (bone in) or West Lake boned.

20 Edition 116 September 27, 2012 through October 2, 2012www.bocaratontribune.com We are always in a hurry, and for some of us when we exercise its not much different. We jump into the execise routine hoping to warm up as we go, and we stop and rush out of the gym thinking that the body will take care of itself. But it isnt quite that way. Each exercise session should be marked by a period of warm up and another of cold down. The warm up period is mandatory to prepare your body to the exercise to come, and to reduce the chances of injury. The best form of warm up is the one the incorporates rhythmic motions and active stretching initially at small amplitudes, increasing it as the body warms up. In the case of specific sports the athlete performs activities related to the sport but with low intensity. The increase in the muscle temperature increases the flexibility, allowing the muscles to contract faster when compared to the same muscle without being warmed up. The blood flow must increase significantly to protect the muscles against injuries during the exercise. Other effects of the warm up include increase in metabolism, increase in cardiac frequency, increase in the transport and usage of oxygen by the body, increase in the speed conduction of the nerves, and increase in muscle contraction speed and quality. The ideal interval for warm up is of about 5 to 10 minutes. After 45 minutes without any physical activity the body has returned to its rest temperature. As a consequence of the warm up there is an activa tion of the central nervous system with an improvement in the attention spam, favoring learning ability, coordination, and movement precision, crucial during training. There is a release of adrenaline, which decreases the blood viscosity, increases the activity of the enzymes, and increases the energy levels by increased the metabolism of glycogen (a form of sugar readily available in the cells of the liver and muscles). At the end of the exercise session, the cold down period is as essential as the warm up. The cool down allows the muscles to eliminate latic acid, a metabolic by-product that accumulates in the muscles with the exercise. The gradual decrease in the activity level during cool down helps to prevent dizziness that may happen with the sudden stop of the activity. When the exercise is suddenly stopped, the blood accumulates to the lower extremities, and does not arrive to the brain in sufficient amount leading to dizziness. The cold down is also important to assist in the normalization of the blood pressure, and to gradually relax the body struc tures involved in the activity. The charac teristics of the cold down are similar to the warm up, prioritizing whole body exercises with duration of 5 to 10 minutes in total. In sum, the warm up and cold down are part of your training/exercise session, offering you a safe practice, and granting longevity to the training program. Al decisions about the exercise session should always be made taking into consideration the objec tives and the individuality of each person/ athlete.

This is a work of joy to this woman who espouses that nothing is too much for her to accomplish. AND accomplish she does! Every year Alidas residence is transformed into a medieval castle haunted house and an eerie graveyard complete with tomb raiders, grave robbers and various other creatures of the night to benefit St. Jude Childrens Research Hospital. There is no charge to view this amazing show, but donations are accepted; and everyone does. Each year for the past three years, the exterior of the house becomes a medieval castle with doors that open to elaborately staged rooms featuring a walk-through several different rooms, which feature haunting themes. In the past they included a Vampires Lair, a Zombie Banquet, a Haunted Swamp and a Gothic Inner-Sanctum. The Mad Scientists Laboratory will be this years haunt complete with giant electrodes and bubbling plasma tubes. From there you go to the dun geon where the cells show the ghoulish residents rotting away. Of course, this is when they are not scaring the visitors. This all happens on Halloween night when the donations are accepted for St. Judes. A Halloween aficionado, Alidas pas sion for the holiday has become a com munity event to support the work of St. Jude Childrens Research Hospital. The Hospitals mission is to advance cures and means of prevention for pediatric catastrophic diseases through research and treatment. Consistent with the vision of founder, Danny Thomas, no child is denied treatment based on race, religion or a familys ability to pay. Volunteers act as the various charac ters that haunt the house on Halloween night. They are local residents, neighbors and students. This year Quota International Boca/Delray Service Club is also participating in the event.

22 Edition 116 September 27, 2012 through October 2, 2012www.bocaratontribune.com The Boca Raton Tribune MUNICIPAL East/West Boca Raton, FL THE CITIZENS VOICEBy Al Zucaro Municipal NewsAwake All You Ghosts and GoblinsTrick or Treat After 4 hours at city chambers for the Planning and Zoning marathon this week, everyone left the room glazed, hungry and ready to go. Listening attentively and taking decisions on such complex subjects is, at best, difficult and without visuals, one cannot even begin to see the treats resulting from the tricks hidden within the technical language. Like ghosts lurking to prey on the innocent who believe that all is good and evil does not exist...incredible. So what was the first order of business? Planned Mobility to implement regula tions for 78.62 acres east of the El Rio ca nal between Spanish River Blvd. and Interstate 95, a project that anticipates 2.5 million square feet of development with density to allow almost 1600 residential units next to a single family area without the benefits of traffic studies, economic impact analysis or visual sightlines describing the cityscape after the developer is long gone and the citizens are left with managing the outcomes. The first request by the developer was to remove this item from the agenda and postpone to the next meeting. I guess the dire economic consequence for not meeting their deadline is more a trick then a treat..Happy Halloween! Next was a presentation from staff about proposed zoning changes followed by a developer request for 10 amendments dramatically changing to the impacts and the look of the city. Very intense, very complex language again presented without the benefit of economic impact studies, traffic studies or even sightlines to provide visuals of the end results. A picture is worth a thousand words Citizens, in the past few weeks, have voiced negative opinion over the Levitz Plaza development on North Federal Highway. That project, a mere babe in the woods compared to those being recommended now, consists of 20 units per acre, a fifteen foot setback from the road, four stories in height with a total of 384 units. With that project out of the ground, one can only now visualize what will dominate the sightlines of that area forever. Can you see the Caldwell???? Begin to imagine the look that will dominate if projects with a density of 54 units to the acre and 85 feet in height are approved. That is the height and density being recommended to the city council and the council seems ready to accept these outcomes without the pictures necessary to see the developers vision for the city of Boca Raton. Competing interests. Present in chambers were all the usual suspects and then some. The developers were there in full force. Also present were citizens expressing concerns that these plans are inconsistent with Boca Ratons low density directive and its passive and peaceful lifestyle. Two very different, competing views. What became apparent was how the argument was formulated. Staff argued for language with proscribed limitations. Developers argued that their requested amendments are small in nature and will have a negligible impact. That is a false argument. Staffs changes are a major deviation to the existing look and feel of the city. The incremental difference from staffs position and the developers request is not the mea surement. What is the measurement is the difference from the current code to the considerable demands the developers suggests is necessary to make a project viable. Balderdash. Developers will push to get maximum density always. They will not act in the best interest of the citizens or the city. They will only act in their individual best interest believing that collective individual interests will somehow equal the common interest. This is false and this is exactly why there is representative government, a city council that is elected to act in the best interests of the people. The citizens argued effectively that Boca Raton is a low density place; that the citizens interests come first; and that the city council is not the voice of the developers but rather the voice of the community. They are exactly right. This is not to say that the common interest is necessarily different from the collection of individual interests but it is to say that there is currently no community buy-in to these massive changes. There has been little effort by the elected officials to go to the citizens and make the case as to why these changes are good. The threat of higher taxes and fewer services is not valid until the people have a reason to ac cept the facts as truth. There is little evidence that the elected officials have taken their case to the people and there is growing dissatisfac tion throughout the city by citizens that are uninformed within the process. I have argued this before. The city council needs to get out of its ivory tower and go out to the people. Make the case. Make the developers make the case. Do not simply ac cept the notion that that there is only modest changes being asked for. These changes are anything but modest and the elected officials act at their peril to overlook the common good, the voice of the people. Like the ghosts in the night, the true choice is a treat of a willing and informed citizenry or the trick of more petition driven challenges, more angst among the people and an elected body irresponsive to those that they serve.

24 Edition 116 September 27, 2012 through October 2, 2012www.bocaratontribune.com Is America Still the Land of Economic Freedom?The race for the White House in 2012 has boiled down to a single issue. The economy. That includes a lot of ramifications: Consistent high unemployment, failed job growth, a rising tide of poverty, increased dependence on government entitlements and a diminishing mid dle class. Both President Obama and chal lenger Mitt Romney swear theyll help to pull the middle class out of its financial peril. Many hope Romney will become the new president in 2012. Others want to stick with Obama despite his unfulfilled promises. It is ironic that Obama would classi fy the economy as fine in one speech, yet said in a Minutes interview that the nation lost nine million jobs during the recession, but he has only replaced about 4.5 million. That, Mr. President, is not an econo my that is fine, and he has no definitive steps to improve it. So, in the meantime, empty storefronts remain empty; small business owners keep their finances close to the vest as they face an uncertain future and job opportunities remain few. Hundreds of thousands of unemployed people have just given up. This isnt just a personal and unsup ported opinion. Economist Tim Kane, in a study by Hudson Institute, said few startup companies are launching in this troubled time. Job creation at new firms was at an all-time low in 2009 of 2.8 million, then fell again a year later by 250,000 jobs, wrote Kane. He concludes that entrepreneurs are having a harder time starting a company today than at any time since the government began collecting data. What makes this recovery different for startups? Kane thinks its an environment more hostile to entrepreneurial employment. He writes: At the federal level, high taxes and higher uncertainty about taxes are undoubtedly inhibiting entrepreneurship, but to what degree is unknown. The dominant factor may be new regulations on labor. The passage of the Affordable Care Act is creating a sweeping alteration of the regulatory environment that directly changes how employers engage their workforces, and it will be some time until those changes are understood by employers or scholars. Separately, he said, there has been a federal crackdown since 2009 by the Internal Revenue Service on U.S. employers that hire U.S. workers as independent contractors rather than employees, raising the question of mandatory benefits. New firms tend to use part-time and contract staffing rather than full-time employees during the startup stage. According to Labor Department data, Kane said, the typical American today only takes home 70 percent of compensation as pay, while the rest is absorbed by the spiraling cost of bene fits (e.g., health insurance). The dilem ma for U.S. policy is that an American entrepreneur has zero tax or regula tory burden when hiring a consultant/ contractor who resides abroad. But that same employer is subject to paperwork, taxation, and possible IRS harassment if employing U.S.-based contractors. Some of those fears are reflected in the most-recent U.S. Chamber Small Business Outlook Survey that found that 72 percent think the health care law will make it harder to hire more people. Based on these data, it appears America is on its way to becoming a European-style socialist nation, with the government as the kingpin. President Obama seems bent on bringing socialism to US shores. He boasted in his Minutes speech that he saved General Motors as well as the banks. What he didnt say is that the US Government invested billions to prop them up, and GM still owes plenty, meaning Obama is actually the automakers owner. As to the banks, they took the money, gave a big chunk to its executives as bonuses, yet still hold back cash intended for new mortgages. This is a bailout that certainly favored the banks and slapped consumers in the face. Even now, the president is sending billions in assistance to nations like Libya and Egypt; nations that have allowed protestors to wreck US embassies and kill American personnel. Where is America now? A Econom ic Freedom of the World (EFW) report published by Canadas Fraser Institute and the Cato Institute says the United States ranks 18th in the global marketplace. The country is just behind Denmark and Qatar and ahead of Kuwait. Economists James Gwartney, Robert Lawson, and Joshua Hall write that studies using this data have concluded that countries with institutions and policies more consistent with economic freedom have higher investment rates, more rapid economic growth, higher income levels and more rapid reductions in poverty rates. This report is another indication that the U.S. is falling behind globally. It is clear that whoever is in the White House after the November election must unleash free enterprise to make the US more competitive, improve eco nomic growth and create more jobs.Business Advent Lutheran Church 300 East Yamato Road Boca Raton, FL 33431 561-395-3632 www.adventboca.org First Church Of Christ, Scientist 566 W Palmetto Park Road Boca Raton, FL 33432 561-391-7689 Armation Lutheran Church 9465 Glades Road Boca Raton, FL 33434 561-483-6004 First United Methodist Church www.fumcbocaraton.org 625 NE Mizner Blvd. Boca Raton, FL 33432 561-395-1244 Ascension Catholic Church 7250 N Federal Hwy Boca Raton, FL 33487 561-997-5486 Friendship Baptist Church 1422 NE 2nd Court Boca Raton, FL 33432 561-395-6871 Assembly of God Hispanic Church Centro Cristiano Familiar 21121 Oriole Country Rd Boca Raton, FL 33433 561-746-8626 Frontline Christian Center Olympic Heights High Schl 20101 Lyons Rd Boca Raton FL 33434 561-826-0404 www.frontlinechristiancenter.com Ayts Chayim Messianic Synagogue 600 W.

Florida is the worlds principal commercial gateway to Latin American and Caribbean markets and serves as a leading global trade hub. Goods worth more than $149 billion flowed through Floridas airports and seaports in 2011. So, should your business be exporting? Consider this: Foreign demand is strong, with forecasts of the world economy growing more 4 percent and world trade growing more than 6 percent annually in coming years. Advancements in e-Commerce and logistics have lowered the costs of doing business overseas. Free trade agreements have opened up markets in Australia, Chile, Singapore, Jordan, Israel, Canada, Mexico and Central America, creating more opportunities for U.S. businesses. U.S. companies that export enjoy greater business success overall because they are able to extend the sales potential of existing products and maintain productive capacity by stabilizing seasonal markets.

Word of the special guest speaker, Senator George Lemieux, drew a crowd of nearly 100 members and VIPs. The senator discussed the current economic conditions of South Florida and the upcoming presidential election. Following the speech, the audience had an opportunity to ask questions. The Chamber was pleased to bring Senator Lemieux to Boca Raton to speak to the exclusive trustee members, said Troy M. McLellan, CCE, President & CEO of the Greater Boca Raton Chamber of Commerce. With so many critical issues facing the future success of our state, it was important that the senator come address the business power base of our community. Lemieux served as Floridas 34 United States Senator from 2009-10. In the Senate, he served on the Commerce, Science and Transportation Committee, the Armed Services Committee and the Special Committee on Aging. He passed legislation on health care fraud, export promotion, rating agency reform, small business promotion and a treaty resolution on tactical nuclear weapons. Senator Lemieux now serves as the chairman of the board of the Gunster law firm. The Trustee Membership Program was founded in 1999 to bring together senior level executives whose caring and commitment to the community is the foundation for the Greater Boca Ra ton Chamber of Commerces continued growth. Senator George Lemieux, Chairman of the Board, Gunster Boca Raton Regional Hospital Offers New Flash CTBOCA RATON Boca Raton Regional Hospital is now the only hospital in South Florida to offer the SOMATOM Definition Flash from Siemens Healthcare, officials there have announced. This innovative, second-genera tion Flash CT scanner delivers the shortest scan times with the lowest radiation dose. It produces high-quality, diagnostic images in fractions of a second, while significantly reducing the patients exposure to radiation. Because of its increased speed, motion from breathing or a patients inability to hold still does not cause faulty images. When compared to a traditional CT scanner, the Flash CT reduces radia tion exposure by as much as 90 percent. It also contains specialized adaptive dose shields that customize the lowest possible dose of radiation for each patient. The Flash CT can detect and turn off its beam cycles when aimed directly at sensitive tissue areas. It also filters out unneeded radiation and uses what is called iterative reconstruction, which reduces radiation while enhancing the quality of the image. A typical 64-slice CT scanner takes about 30 seconds to image the whole body and the image can be disrupted by any movement, such as tremors or breathing. The Flash CT table moves as fast as 1.5 feet per second, scanning the entire body in 3-4 seconds. Due to its unprecedented speed, it is no longer necessary for patients to hold their breath or be sedated. This offers tremendous advantages in pediatric and geriatric scanning. The technology also gives us a new level of diagnostic capabilities that includes vessel imaging, cardiac testing, cancer staging and tissue characterization, which can be tailored to each patients individual needs, said Jonathan Wiener, MD, Medical Director of Neuroradiology and Cardiac CT at Boca Raton Regional Hospital. With this system, our clinicians can obtain significant enhanced diagnostic information from the time of initial diagnosis and throughout follow-up treatment. The Flash CT will revolutionize our imaging department, providing the most cutting-edge technology available in computed tomography, said Joseph Kleinman, MD, Chief of the Department of Radiology at Boca Regional. From both a patient and physician perspective it provides benefits unequaled by other technology. In 2012, Boca Regional received a $25 million grant, the largest, single philanthropic gift in the institutions history, from the Marcus Foundation to create the Marcus Neuroscience Institute on the Hospitals main campus. The facility will serve as a new, stateof-the-art nexus of care for neurologic and neurosurgical patients and transform the landscape of clinical capabilities available in the region. The Flash CT scanner will be the cornerstone in the advanced imaging capabilities that will be offered at the Marcus Neuroscience Institute, said Dr. Wiener.

The Countess and Uncle HerbieBOCA RATON -As former president of the Boca Raton Museum of Art I have had the opportunity to meet and talk with The Countess, Henrietta (called Rita by friends) de Hoernle about her support of the Museum and other generosities bestowed by the Countess and her departed husband on Boca Raton. I have always found her to be easy to talk to, with a great sense of humor. I recall her mentioning that she had attended a Boy Scout Jamboree, and watched an Army parachute team appear through the air. She mentioned her hope of catching one for herself. As did many, I attended her 100th birthday bash at Boca West on the evening of September 24th to wish her well. The evening was as grand as her countenance and raised money for various charities. As I was leaving, it came to mind that my Uncle Herbie, who lives in Delray Beach, would soon celebrate his 100th birthday and a party had been set for his synagogue on West Atlantic. While Herbie never became a Count, he always counted when it came to his family and mine. Herbie had married my fathers sister Mary shortly after my parents were married in the late 1930s. He had started his lifes labor of love when, at age 18, he began working as a copy boy for the New York Post shortly after graduating from high school. He never had another employer; winding up as the manager of one of the Posts departments. While my fathers family had a wellexercised sense of humor, Herbie was usually the first to turn an everyday moment or moment in history into a reason to laugh or groan. At his 90th and 95th birthday parties he closed the evening with a well practiced and a bit worn vaudeville act. Herbie has an active Facebook through which he tries to keep the family and his many friends up to date and often passes on op-eds and jokes through e-mails. Herbie and Marys identical twin sons, my cousins David and Daniel, both licensed psychologists, were sent through college by the incomes of their father and mother, a school teacher. Early on, after World War II, Herbie and Mary bought a small home in the Flatbush section of Brooklyn, a half dozen blocks from a tri-plex oc cupied by my grandparents and two aunts and their husbands. Herbie and Mary never moved until coming to South Florida in the late 1970s. We played a bit of golf at that time and I recall playing a round with Herbie which ended with a loud splash behind me. He had accidentally managed to drive our cart with clubs into a golf course pond in Tamarac. All I could see was his hat floating on the water. Using my five-iron I fished him out. He came out laughing, but not hearing as the water had blitzed his hearing aids. Herbie was the first in the family to buy an eight millimeter movie camera and a light bar from which we were never safe during any family event. I still have hours of his movies (now on discs) of our Passover Seders and other events which document Herbies wish to provide us all with a way to look back at the way we were. Very few of us will ever have the pleasure of using multi-millions in savings for the benefit of others as has our Countess. Herbies life of hard work bought him permanent financial security through a pension and savings, but the joy that he has brought to his family made him a Prince.ColumnistsCasey Cleveland, is pastor at The Avenue Church, Delray Beachs fastest-growing new church. The Avenue Church opened in September 2010 and meets at the Delray Beach Community Center and sometimes at Old School Square. Pastor Casey may be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org. 11 Years LaterWhere were you? Where were you when it all went down? I was with a room full of middle school students. Where were you when the planes crashed, the buildings came down, and the world changed forever? As we remember 9/11 over the years we probably think of so many things; loss, suffering, evil, heroes, loved ones, first responders, military sacrifice, rebuilding, hope. Somewhere in the midst of all these memories lie questions that haunt many. How could this happen? Will it happen again? Where was God? Rather than pretending these questions do not exist because they are less noisy each passing year, or thinking it is easier to live in our own answers, may I sug gest something different? I suggest we look at three biblical truths that help us to define reality, and in so doing define a real hope. First, according to the Scriptures we live in a broken and fallen world. Sin exists and permeates all areas of life. The Bible is not a pessimistic or nega tive book, it is actually the best selling book of all time because of the grace and hope it offers. But it must first define reality. And the presence of sin is our reality. If you think I am crazy just open any given paper on any given day. Or watch the news tonight. Or check online for the latest current events. Not good. Seriously messed up and broken and painful and chaotic and so on Evil exists. This is our reality. It was not supposed to be this way, nor will it stay this way forever. But I am getting ahead of myself, I always love to skip to the good news. Second, according to the Scriptures we are sinners. It is not just that we live in a broken world, but we in our thoughts, words, and deeds do evil as well. The brokenness is because of us. I as a pastor, and father, and husband, and friend, and writer, am a sinner. I am not alone in this condition. Because we live in a broken world, with broken people, horrible things happen. The people who committed those terrible crimes on 9/11 were evil people doing evil things. Evil will continue in this world. Jesus even promised that, but he also promised something else. So where is the hope in all of this? Third, according to the Scriptures we have really good news. The second half of Jesus promise to the evil was that we were to take heart because he had overcome the world. Here is the best news you will hear all day; Jesus came in to our broken world and died for sinners like you and me, he was punished in our place, he overcome our sin and death the proof of which is his resurrection, he offers forgiveness and freedom from sin for those who believe in him, he is coming back to restore and renew all things forever, and in that day will wipe away every tear and right every wrong. There is our hope. His name is Jesus and he is the same yesterday, today, and tomorrow.

29 Edition 116 for news 24/7 go to bocaratontribune.com September 27, 2012 through October 2, 2012www.bocaratontribune.com After a three-week stretch on the road that featured back-to-back games against top-tier Southeastern Conference opponents, the Florida Atlantic football team is back home this Saturday against North Texas. Not only is Saturday the first home game for the team in nearly a month, its also FAU Pride Day. The athletics department and new AD Pat Chun has a challenge for Owl fans, especially the student body. If we get 4,000 students in the stands before kickoff, we will distribute rally towels to all 4,000 students after the first quarter, said Chun. You did great turning out for the first game, but we know you can do better! Show your Owl Pride by getting to the game before kickoff! Since the Owls last played at their home field, theyve gone 0-3. It was all the way back on August 31 when they were last at FAU Sta dium, winning 7-3 over Wagner College. The next week, they lost their Sun Belt Conference Opener to Middle Tennessee State, and then played back-to-back games against teams currently ranked in the top five nationally: No. 5 Georgia and No. 1 Alabama. Head coach Carl Pelini is glad to be home, and described what a win Saturday would mean to the team. All the hard work theyre putting in during the week needs to show on the field, he said. (A win) would certainly be a boost for everyone: the program, the players and coaches. Im not going to say we cant keep getting better if that doesnt happen. Certainly, theyre pushing themselves, in the meeting rooms and on the field. Theyre working at getting better, but a boost would help. The squad got a fourth quarter touchdown to snap a nearly 13-quarter scoreless streak by the Alabama defense, a span that saw the Crimson Tide score 134 unanswered points. Just the fact that we kept playing and punched one in there was important, said Pelini. I guess I couldve kicked a field goal, but I felt if we couldnt get 4th-and-1, they deserved the shutout. So we went for it, and ended up scoring on that drive, which was good to see. Pelini has seen a lot of improvement in this early season, especially on special teams. Heres what I see after four weeks: I think special teams-wise, weve at least competed or won every game, minus the first game, he said. Our coverage teams have been tremendous; our return teams have been at least comparable to what the opponents have been giving us. The punt game has really flipped the field a number of times and our kickoff team has done a great job giving up nothing, so thats a definite improvement over a year ago. Two other areas that Pelini is excited about is penalties and turnovers, at least the lack thereof by the team. We were a highly penalized team a year ago, said the coach Weve got to be, statistically-speaking, a highly-rated team in terms of number of penalties, and were operating efficiently (there). Turnovers were a big deal to us going into the season. We had those miscues early, but weve gotten better every game in terms of just taking care of the ball and ball security. Im looking at marked improvements in certain areas. There are three areas Pelini pointed to that still do need improvement. I want to see us get out of the gates faster and I want us to be a better tackling football team, and I want to be able to run the ball more consistently, he said. Those are the things I want to see more improvement on. But Im seeing improvement in areas, and I keep saying thats what this year is about, laying foundations for playing our kind of football. I knew that this was going to be a long haul, it wasnt just going to be a quick fix. Its not going to happen overnight. North Texas will come to Boca Raton with the exact same record of 1-3 overall and an 0-1 mark in the Sun Belt. And their season schedule to date looks very similar to that of the Owls: They lost to two top-ranked opponents (No. 3 LSU and No. 8 Kansas State), won over a smaller school at home (34-7 over Texas Southern), and lost their conference opener (14-7 last week to Troy). SportsThe Boca Raton Tribune SportsPablo Campos Wins 2012 NASL Golden Boot AwardBy: Pedro Heizer After the best single-season performance of his career, it was announced earlier this week that San Antonio Scorpions forward Pablo Campos has received the 2012 NASL Golden Boot Award. This award wouldnt be possible without my teammates and coaches, said a humbled Campos. Campos led the NASL with 20 goals this season, tying the NASL single-season record set by former teammate Etienne Barbara of the Carolina Railhawks last season. As teammates last season for Carolina Railhawks, Barbara and Campos were a 1-2 punch as they finished the season #1 and #2 respectively in goal scoring. Campos finished his season last year with 12 goal and 2 assists. He moved to the firstyear Scorpions in January. During his stellar 2012 campaign, Campos was named NASL Offensive Player of the Week on five separate occasions and won Player of Month honors in July. The 29-year-old Brazilian international now sits first on the NASLs career scoring list with 37 goals in all competitions, including NASL Playoffs and the Lamar Hunt US Open Cup. Pablo was a game-winner for us this year. Whether it was through great individual effort or playing off services from his teammates, he showed that he is a true goalscorer, Scorpions Head Coach Tim Hankinson said Nick Zimmerman of the Carolina Railhawks finished second in the league with 15 goals followed by Fort Lauderdale rookie Mark Anderson who scored a rookie-high 12 goals this season.Photos by Bob Markey II www.MarkeySportsPhoto.comFAU Football Returns Home Saturday vs. North Texas Strikers Tie with FC Edmonton, Face Carolina in 2012 NASL PlayoffsThe Fort Lauderdale Strikers (9W-9T-10L) completed their 2012 regular season with a 2-2 tie against FC Edmonton (5W-10T-13L) at Clarke Stadium in Edmonton, Alberta on Sunday. The Strikers had a 2-0 lead going into the 90th minute before FC Edmonton scored twice to pull even. Fort Lauderdale will travel to face the Carolina RailHawks in the first round of the NASL Playoffs unless the Minnesota Stars FC defeat the San Antonio Scorpions in the final regular season NASL match. If Minnesota wins, the Strikers will instead travel to face the Puerto Rico Islanders. It was disappointing on our end because we should have left here with three points, but give Edmonton credit for two good goals, said Strikers head coach Daryl Shore. Getting ready for the playoffs, we felt we had a good week of practice and plan on having another good week coming up. We feel like we have a good group and you have to beat the best teams to make the finals, so it doesnt matter who we play, we just hope to have a successful run like we did last year. Fort Lauderdale took an early 1-0 lead in the 12th minute when Edmontons Kevin Hatchi committed a foul in the penalty area, putting Strikers captain Abe Thompson at the penalty spot. Thompson struck the ball toward his right and into the side netting to beat Lance Parker, despite Parker diving to the correct side. The goal was Thompsons fourth of the season giving him 17 all-time in his Strikers career, just one behind Romario who tops the record books with 18. The match would stay 1-0 until the 78th minute when the Strikers broke through with a combination of passes resulting in Abe Thompson playing a through ball which Aly Hassan was able to chip over Parker who was sprinting off his line to attempt to cut off the pass. The goal was Hassans sixth of the sea son in the NASL and ninth in all competitions, including his three US Open Cup goals. The Strikers finish the regular season with two fewer points than in 2011. They will open the 2012 NASL Playoffs on the road versusu the Carolina RailHawks on Saturday, Sept. 29, at 7:00pm.
