By Fred HamiltonThey came from countries that span the globe with the goal of becoming citizens of the United States of America. Three hundred and twentythree men and women from 51 countries took the Oath of Allegiance Tuesday in the Wold Performing Arts Center at Lynn University during an administrative naturalization ceremony. Most of the 323 people had been waiting months, even years, to take the oath of allegiance so they could finally call themselves American. I feel so wonderful, so happy. For me, its a pleasure to be here today, Boca Raton resident Helena Dvorak said. Finally after 10 years I have my citizenship.

Edition 1403for news 24/7 go to bocaratontribune.com www.bocaratontribune.comApril 5, through April 11, 2013Community NewsCommunity NewsThe Boca Raton Tribune The Maxim Life Fair: Raising Hope for Talia BennardoBy Samantha MellmanThe inaugural Maxim Life Fair will be held on April 7 to raise funds for Talia Bennardo, a 15 year-old girl who is awaiting a kidney transplant. Bennardo was diagnosed last year with Focal Segmental Glumerulo Sclerosis, a life threatening kidney disease. She is attends high school while having to do eight hours of dialysis every night while she sleeps. When Adriana Guardia learned that her neighbors Chef Andrew and Josephine Bennardo needed to raise $100,000 for their daughters operation, she reached out to her community by organizing the Maxim Life Fair. That is when everybody decided to step in, said Guardia, owner of Maxim Life a natural health and nutrition store, 499 NE Spanish River Blvd. It is totally amazing to see how the community is coming together to help, whether it is donating their time or money. Guardia is in the process of filing paperwork to become a nonprofit organization. For now, she is the only sponsor for the fair, which includes entertainment, food demonstrations, local vendors, auctions, games for kids, fitness expo, and free nutritional screenings. Admission is free and food and wine will be available for $12. Since space is limited, a fee of $12 is required for one demo and $30 for all three. All proceeds will benefit the Talia Bennardo Kidney Medical Fund. By Jason SchwartzUnder pressure from student protestors, the operators of a Boca Ratonbased private prison corporation have withdrawn a $6 million gift to FAU. That means the universitys new football stadium will no longer be named GEO Group Stadium. What was originally intended as a gesture of GEOs goodwill to financially assist the Universitys athletic scholarship program has surprisingly evolved into an ongoing distraction to both of our organizations, said George Zoley, GEO Group chairman and CEO. We employ many FAU graduates and Boca Raton community members. We take pride in running a well-respected company and are proud of our long-term support of the University. The $6 million gift a 12-year commitment with annual payments of $500,000 -was meant to help advance FAUs athletic department, officials said. Students and South Florida pro-immigrant activists expressed outrage after University officials announced they would change the name of stadium to that of the prison corporation, which has been accused of human rights violations. They said it was a done deal, but I knew it could be changed, says Arely Baugh, a senior who was one of more than 40 protesters turned away from the administration building, twice. At least 25 faculty members did not like the name Geo Group either, unsettled over accusations that the company treats inmates improperly. The Faculty Senate voted in March against the new stadium name. That vote did not change anything then, but professors intended to send a clear message to the President and Board of Trustees. Many things have changed in society because people continue to resist the notion that it's a done deal, FAU Professor Gail Burnaford said. University President Mary Jane Saunders expressed gratitude for supporters of the school in a news release announcing the withdrawal of the donation. FAU alumnus and Trustee Emeritus George Zoley and his colleagues have been loyal supporters of this University, Saunders said. We are thankful for all of the companies, organizations and individuals who give to this university to support our mission, our pursuit of academic excellence and valuable contributions to this community. Gonzalo Vizcardo, a student who had organized protests of the naming of the stadium, heralded the news. This is a victory for FAU, he said. This is a victory for students, faculty, staff, alumni, everyone at FAU.

Firefighters were called to the blaze in the 1200 block of Clint Moore Road shortly after midnight Sunday. When they arrived, firefighters found heavy smoke on the north side of the building. Additional units were called in and firefighters had to force their way through four overhead doors to extinguish the fire and remove smoke and toxic vapors from the building. Four separate businesses occupied the building but it appears that the fire impacted only one business.Event Planned for National Healthcare Decisions Day With April 16 being National Healthcare Decisions Day, officials at a home for seniors will provide free information about advance care planning and advance directives, as well as, a number of organizations involved in the pre-planning decision process.

The Bad Guys/Bad Guns Program Program is not a gun buyback program. Instead, it focuses on paying for information submitted as confidential tips to Crime Stoppers, according to a news release from the agency. Confidential tips will not be traceable and Crime Stoppers of Palm Beach County, Inc. will handle all reward payments discreetly, according to the release. To participate, tipsters can: Call Crimes Stoppers at (800) 458TIPS (8477), visit the website at www. crimestopperspbc.com and click Report a Crime, or text the tip to tips@cspbc. com.now. Dvoraks son, Lukas Dvorak, also became a citizen at the ceremony. Officials from the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services administered the Oath of Allegiance in the same auditorium where the presidential debate was held last October. We have done one other ceremony here at Lynn University because theyre the largest international university in the area, said Geoff Verderosa, field office director of the U.S. Citizens and Immigration Services West Palm Beach field office. We were going to have one in this auditorium in August or September leading up to the debate but the Secret Service wouldnt let us in there. As their families and friends looked on, the 323 stood and repeated the oath with Verderosa, applauding and waving miniature American flags as they finished. While residents of the area are generally naturalized at USCIS West Palm Beach field office or in a judicial setting by a judge, Verderosa said these types of ceremonies will be done more often locally in similar venues in the future. Lynn president Kevin Ross welcomes the newly minted citizens to his university, which is ranked fourth in the country for international students and has students from 87 countries and 40 states. Each of you come from multiple countries and diverse backgrounds and today youve all come from U.S. citizens, Ross said. This is something we all have in common as we say the pledge together. Ross said he believes that people coming together from diverse and different backgrounds can do amazing things. We believe there is great strengths in differences and that really is the spirit and identity of America, he told the audience. Other speakers included U.S. Rep. Lois Frankel and President Barack Obama and former Secretary of State Madelyn Albright, who offered video remarks and congratulations to the new citizens. During the reception, the newly naturalized were urged to partake in their first act as American citizens apply for a passport.Continued from page 1

Keep writing, Caleb! I will be looking for every article of yours once a month! Ana Maria C. Rocha The die will be cast in March of 2013 when the UN meets in New York specifically to discuss and pass a UN-backed ban of all privately-owned guns. Minutes after the results of the recent election were known, a secret call was made to the UN urging that a bill be passed in March. My question is this: If a bill is passed, who will the administration use to grab the guns from US citizens? My guess is that the Administration will not take the chance with the US Military and use UN troops from some African nation. Lets hope and PRAY that this does not happen. Amos LantieriI was at a sporting event recently when the National Anthem was being played. Many within my eyesight stood some with their hands placed over their heart, others by their sides. Then there were those who remained seated, continued walking or even munched on a hotdog while sipping a soda. I was somewhat miffed and as usual, thought they didnt know any better. Just this week, I was at a high-profile event with dignitaries present while the Star-Spangled Banner again was being played. Just like my previous experience, the disrespect was quite evident. Worse, some of the dignitaries were among the accused culprits. A few men did not remove their hats, at least two women kept on talking, and there were people, including children, who kept on walking down the aisle like it was a walk in the park. I was left to think how could I use this forum to educate and in some cases, remind, Americans of the need to respect the flag. As I conducted an informal poll of my close friends and even some random folks, I found that many are not clear what to do in each instance. In fact, most did not even know there was a difference. In conferring with social etiquette experts, such as Lizzie Post at Emily Posts Etiquette Daily in Vermont, during the playing of the anthem, a U.S. citizen should rise from his or her seat, stand at attention, face the flag and place his or her right hand over his or her heart. This etiquette also applies to children who are old enough to stand on their own. If someone is walking to his or her seat when the anthem begins to play, he or she should stop walking, stand at attention and place his or her hand over his or her heart until the anthem concludes. Simply put, people should not be milling around while the anthem is playing. Now, whether you put your hands at your heart or by your side is optional, Post said. How to proceed during the recitation of the Pledge of Allegiance is another story. My new found friend, Post, tells me, that when reciting the Pledge of Allegiance, all present should stand at attention facing the flag with their right hand over their heart. The only exceptions are those in uniform who shall salute. Now, the gung-ho patriots may want to remove their headgear (hats or caps) and hold it over their hearts. But again, that tradition is becoming a thing of the past and I am afraid will be forgotten if someone does not address it quickly. Remember, the flag of the United States of America is a living thing that calls to our spirit, reminding us of the greatness of our America. We cherish and uphold it because it is the standard of honor under which we live. So the next time you hear the National Anthem being sang or played in a public arena, please show some respect by holding off on chewing your gums, smoking or sipping on that soda. After all, more than 750,000 American servicemen and women have died defending the freedom our flag symbolizes. So as a Non U.S. Citizen I rise and face the flag when the National Anthem is played. I stand at attention while U.S. citizens pledge the pledge to Allegiance. As the wife of a U.S. soldier I respectfully stand up when the U.S. Flag is approaching me through carriers at functions and parades. I will not side talk, discipline my children or eat during the Pledge of Allegiance or the presentation of the National Anthem.

Living is Never Free from Risks! By Douglas HeizerTHOUGHTS FROM THE PUBLISHER Of Fools And FoolishnessBy: Robert J. Tamasy When was the last time you did something foolish at work? We have all dabbled in foolish behavior at one time or another, perhaps more than once. But let me ask a different question: Have you ever worked with someone you considered to be a fool, not just a person prone to an occasional foolish act or decision? It is interesting that many cultures have seen fit to formally recognize fools and foolishness. April 1, in the United States and many other nations, is known as April Fools Day. In some countries they call it All Fools Day. For some this provides an excuse for pulling a harmless prank or practical joke on someone, or fooling them by trying to convince them of information that is erroneous. There are various theories about the origin of April Fools Day, including Chaucers 1392 literary classic, The Canterbury Tales, and observances in Europe and the Middle East that trace as far back as the sixth century. But one thing is certain: Fools and foolishness have existed since the beginning of time. There is the saying that a fool and his money are soon parted. Another states, Fools rush in where angels fear to tread. Most of us have been guilty of forming bad relationships, making questionable investments or poor decisions that left us wondering, What was I thinking? But there is a difference between occasional foolishness and habitually being a fool, professionally or personally. It is not surprising that the timeless collection of writings called the Bible speaks about foolishness and fools. Much of it applies to the 21st century workplace. Here is a sampling from the book of Proverbs: The high cost of foolishness. We can labor years to build up something worthwhile a business, a career, a marriage or family that can be destroyed with a single act of irresponsibility. The wise woman builds her house, but with her own hands the foolish one tears it down (Proverbs 14:1). The mindless habits of being a fool. A wise person refuses to make hasty decisions, evaluating alternatives and weighing possible consequences. But a fool acts on impulse without worrying about negative outcomes. The wisdom of the prudent is to give thought to their ways, but the folly of fools is deception (Proverbs 14:8). The short-sightedness of the foolish. Wisdom prompts people to remain focused on worthwhile goals, but foolish people can be easily sidetracked and lose sight of their objectives. Folly delights a man who lacks judgment, but a man of understanding keeps a straight course (Proverbs 15:21). The undisciplined, reckless speech of a fool. Wisdom guides people in what is appropriate to say and what not to say. Foolish people are quick to speak without considering the aftermath of their words. A fools lips bring him strife, and his mouth invites a beating. A fools mouth is his undoing, and his lips are a snare to his soul (Proverbs 18:6-7). The irresponsible stewardship of the fool. A wise person strives to utilize resources properly and carefully, but fools are wasteful and rarely plan for future needs. In the house of the wise are stores of choice food and oil, but a foolish man devours all he has (Proverbs 21:20). Until next week! Robert J. Tamasy is vice president of communications for Leaders Legacy, Inc., a non-profit corporation based in Atlanta, Georgia, U.S.A. A veteran of more than 35 years in professional journalism, he is the author of Business At Its Best: Timeless Wisdom from Proverbs for Todays Workplace (River City Press) and has coauthored with David A.

A tragic misunderstanding is for many humans to assume they can live a risk-free life. In their erroneous conception, they avoid most things which, otherwise, would benefit them in the world instead of harming them. But they do it by avoiding the very things that ultimately can reward them in many ways! Obviously people need to be well informed of the consequences of their actions, even when such actions may be mandated by others. We all know that many accidents occur when people cross a street. Some people even lose their life in doing that. Yet, that should never be reason enough for persons to avoid crossing a street altogether. If you need to get somewhere on foot, thats the way to do it! The same applies to medications a doctor may prescribe, with undesirable, potential side-effects. However, such side-effects may not apply to every situation, or to every single individual following that medical advice. Besides, that remedy is the necessary ingredient to keep you alive and safer from the consequences of the malady it is intended to combat. Travelling by air may end in a crash with a large number of deaths. Nevertheless, compared to the enormous number of flights every single day crisscrossing the globe, the percentage of mishaps is minuscule, while the risk is worth taking. Sadly, the human family has a portion of its population who lack the spirit of adventure, as well as the confidence with which life should be faced and enjoyed. There is nothing perfect in this world but even then, individuals should not deprive themselves of courageously taking risks when necessary, so as not to miss positive realities which can come their way. Instead of shutting yourself at home, and living in daily fear even there, rather than facing reality even in its ugliness, all need to take risks within the parameters of wisdom, reasonableness, and conformity to the laws established by the creator.

Edition 14011for news 24/7 go to bocaratontribune.com www.bocaratontribune.comApril 5, through April 11, 2013 rffrnrt DIVORCE FLORIDA STYLEBy Mike Gora ColumnistsThe Boca Raton Tribune Guns and More GunsMichael H. Gora has been certified by the Board of Education and Specialization of The Florida Bar as a specialist in family and matrimonial law and is a partner with Shapiro Blasi Wasserman & Gora P.A. in Boca Raton. Mr. Gora can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org. This noon I learned that I had lost two friendly acquaintances, Shari Bellingham and Scott Edgerton. I had first known them through the Chamber of Commerce of Greater Boca Raton. My wife, Bonnie, and Shari were in a book club for over ten years. Scott had run the Center for Counseling on Boca Rio Road for many years, but had recently retired. Shari worked for a first class accounting firm. On the morning of April 3, 2013 Scott came to her office, shot her and then shot himself. By the time you read this you will have read it before, or seen it on TV. So you might wonder, Why is Gora bringing this up again? One would think that a man who had a long and successful career administering a Center for Counseling might have taken himself to one of many psychologists which he must have worked with or known. One would think that a man who had a long and successful career administering a Center for Counseling might have taken himself to one of many divorce lawyers which he must have known to look for a better answer than the one he came up with, a gun. For the last few years deaths by firearms in the United States have been about 8,400 a year. Of that number about 66%, 5,544 were suicides. Apparently misery loves company, the company of a pistol, the suicide weapon of choice. The likelihood of having to defend your home with a pistol or long gun against a stranger, wherever you live, is far less than the risk of you using your own gun to kill your wife or husband and then yourself. So far nothing is known of Scotts motives, none of which could have possibly been sufficient to justify his selfish act. If he was not so selfish it would have been bad enough if he had killed himself. The problem is at the moment of decision this nice little man from Boca Raton was out of his mind. And the gunthe beautiful gun he had bought to protect his beautiful home and his beautiful wife, the gun he had bought when he thought he was sane became more important to him than his life and more important to him than his wife Sharis life. Do not allow that to happen to you. While you are sane, do not buy a gun.Recovering From Lifes DisastersFAITHBy Rick Warren Fire destroys homes and families lose all of their worldly belongings. We receive word of the totally unexpected death of a loved one. The economy takes a dramatic negative turn, leaving investment portfolios in ruins. Without warning, an executive informs a long-time employee that she no longer has a job. As Murphys Law states, If something can go wrong, it will. The Bible expresses this reality somewhat differently: Sometimes something useless happens on earth. Bad things happen to good people, and good things happen to bad people (Ecclesiastes 8:14). What should we do, how should we respond, when we are faced with tragedy or great adversity? This week, I want to let Gods Word speak for itself: 1. RELEASE MY GRIEF Do not deny your grief or ignore it. Tell God exactly how you feel. Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted (Matthew 5:4). Pour out your heart to God, for He is our refuge (Psalm 62:8). The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit (Psalm 34:18). 2. RECEIVE HELP FROM OTHERS Do not isolate yourself. Find support from friends, and if you are a member of a church, from your church family. Carry each others burdens (Galatians 6:2). 3. REFUSE TO BE BITTER You have a choice: to become bitter or better. Watch out that no bitterness takes root among you it causes deep trouble, hurting many in their spiritual lives (Hebrews 12:15). HOW CAN WE AVOID BITTERNESS? changed. Reach out to God then face the world again, firm and courageous (Job 11:13, 16). what has been lost. No matter what happens always be thankful, for this is Gods will for you (1 Thessalonians 5:18). 4. REMEMBER WHAT IS IMPORTANT Relationships, not things, are what matter the most. Jesus said, Life is not measured by how much one owns (Luke 12:15). We brought nothing into this world, and we can take nothing out of it (1 Timothy 6:7). 5. RELY ON JESUS CHRIST This is the secret to finding strength needed to endure difficult times. I have learned the secret of being happy at any time in everything that happens. I can do all things through Christ, because he gives me strength (Philippians 4:13). HOW CAN WE DO THIS? Lean on Christ for stability. Those who trust in the Lord are steady as Mount Zion, unmoved by any circumstance (Psalm 125:1). You Lord, give true peace to those who depend on you (Isaiah 26:3). Such a person will not be overthrown by evil circumstances. Gods constant care of him will make a deep impression on all who see it. He does not fear bad news, nor live in dread of what may happen. For he is settled in his mind that God will take care of him (Psalm 112:6-7). Listen to Christ for direction. I know what I am planning for you, says the Lord. I have good plans for you, not plans to hurt you. I will give you hope and a good future (Jeremiah 29:11). Look to Christ for salvation. God is our protection and our strength. He always helps in times of trouble. So we will not be afraid even if the earth shakes, or the mountains fall into the sea (Psalm 46:2). Adapted from a column by Dr. Rick Warren, the author of numerous books, including the highly acclaimed, 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.

Edition 140B1Section B April 5, through April 11, 2013www.bocaratontribune.com A Simple, Complex Lungs Challenges at Arts GarageENTERTAINMENTSee page B2 The Boca Raton Tribune B Section B Boca Arts See page B3Its New, Its Delicious, Its French! FOOD REVIEWBy Skip SheffieldHome Run opens in theaters nationally April 19, including Cinemark Palace in Boca Raton. The film is not there by accident or chance. Home Run is of special interest to a group called Celebrate Recovery, which has branches in both east and west Boca Raton. Home Run is the story of Cory Brand (Scott Elrod), a hotshot baseball player who lives fast and loose. Reality smacks Cory in the face when he is busted with a DUI. As part of his sentence, he is ordered to return to his home town, join a recovery group and coach a struggling Little League team as his community service. Though he resists at first, Cory begins to appreciate mentoring his hapless kids. He also hooks up with a former flame, all of which gives him a new sense of hope. So Home Run is both a sports movie and an inspirational message movie, but inspirational movies often are in a limited market of people who believe in a certain way. Unlike Alcoholics Anonymous, Celebrate Recovery has a distinct Christian framework based on belief in Jesus Christ. Celebrate Recovery is about hope, feeling and redemption, says Nancy Runhaar, who founded the east Boca chapter of CR six years ago this August. We dont advertise that we are involved with `Home Run,, but once our founder, John Baker got onboard, we have been doing our best to promote it; not just to Christians, but to anyone who needs hope. Runhaar says Home Run is not as overtly religious as say, Fireproof, but it does adhere to its specific faith. In A.A. you are allowed to say you believe in a higher power or you believe in God, but you are not supposed to proclaim your faith is in Jesus Christ, Runhaar explains. Celebrate Recovery believes Jesus is the answer. Celebrate Recovery was founded by two California pastors, Rick Warren and John Baker, as a Christ-based alternative to the more secular Alcoholics Anonymous. CR as it is called for short is not just about alcoholism but all hurts, habits and hang-ups that may prevent a person from living a full, productive life. Runhaar started the Boca Raton chapter after she was told about it by her eldest daughter Heather, who was struggling with her own addictions. When two of my daughters began having problems with addictions, I thought we are going to fix this, she recounts. I went up and down the East Coast visiting CR chapters. I learned there were things I had to fix about myself. In Home Run the character who rescues the deep-in-denial ball player Cory is his agent Helene, played by Vivica Fox. Also providing support is an old girlfriend Emma, played by Dorian Brown. Vivica Fox is the biggest name in the cast, Runhaar admits. Scott Elrod had a small part in `Argo. This is his first starring role, and he really does a great job. In fact everyone did a great job. Thats why the movie is so powerful and why it should be seen by everyone, not just Christians or people in recovery. Runhaar believes in Home Run so completely she put her money where her mouth is, so to speak. We had to guarantee the sale of one thousand tickets to bring Home Run to Boca Raton, she reveals. I have faith we will make it. We have sold 700 advance tickets so far. For more information, go to www. homerunthemovie.com.Home Run the Movie Comes to Boca Raton by Leap of Faith
April 5, through April 11, 2013 www.bocaratontribune.com B2 Edition 140 Section B Entertainment Skip SheffieldPrepare for the Inevitable with Exit the KingWhen is a comedy not a comedy? The answer: when it is Ionescos theater of the absurd classic, Exit the King, onstage through April 28 at Palm Beach Dramaworks, 201 Clematis St., West Palm Beach. Eugene Ionesco considered the inevitability of death a primary, overwhelming fact of life. Since death is inevitable, why not make fun of hapless human beings squirming under its sentence? The action of Exit the King begins before the play itself. Affable British-born actor Colin McPhillamy circulates through the audience in costume and bright red wig, handing out flyers for the company. This sets the tone for a production that on the surface is silly and goofy, but as we are drawn in, becomes quite deadly serious. McPhillamy plays King Berenger the First, the 400-yearold monarch of a tattered kingdom wracked by war, corruption, pollution and bad choices. Exit the King was written in 1962 and revised in 2007 by actor Geoffrey Rush and director Neil Armfield, but I could not help but be reminded of an immediately past president who made similarly bad choices for which we still pay. King Berenger is a vain, juvenile monarch who has rejected his first wife, Queen Marguerite (Angie Radosh) for a newer model, Queen Marie (Claire Brownell). Queen Marguerite still hangs around the palace and she is none too happy about her situation. Neither is Queen Marie, a shallow young woman who didnt quite realize what she was getting into. Director William Hayes has set the action without intermission in approximately 90 minutes. This is a good thing, because a lot of territory is covered in that hour and a half as the inept King slowly realizes the magnitude and certainty of his situation. Apparently early in his reign, King Berenger enjoyed power not only over his people, but of the forces of nature itself. Alas his Doctor (Rob Donohoe) informs the King he has but 90 minutes left to live. This prompts the King to go through the stages of death: denial, anger, bargaining, depression and acceptance. Admittedly this does not sound like a load of laughs, but thanks to the black but not bleak humor of Ionesco and the artistry of McPhillamy, who somehow makes a failure and buffoon pitiable if not admirable, Exit the King never dips into the realm of tragedy. Aiding the cause are the able supporting players who one by one fade away. The aforementioned Doctor (Rob Donohoe) also becomes a surgeon, executioner, bacteriologist and astrologist. Elizabeth Dimon is the long-suffering Maid Juliette as well as assorted domestic help and Registered Nurse. Stoically overseeing the diminishing proceedings is The Guard (Jim Ballard), one of the few normal characters. For those of you who fear death, Exit the King is actually a mood-lifter. As badly as you may have screwed up your life, it is unlikely you failed as totally as bumbling King Berenger. It is pointless to regret what might have been. Tickets are $55 ($10 students).

Edition 140B3Section B April 5, through April 11, 2013www.bocaratontribune.com Its New, Its Delicious, Its French! Food Review Marc Kent Les Amies, located at 626 South Federal Highway in Deerfield Beach, (954-480-6464) is a cozy French bistro seating 42 diners for dinner Tuesdays through Sundays. Owners Marie Therese and Diane longtime restaurateurs have the talents of Paul and Steve as the Chefs Du Cuisine congratulations! Dee. Ed, Paul and this reviewer selected the cold vichyssoise, light yet full bodied, then a typical French onion soup a classic with rich broth, tender onion shards and a fine crown on this hot soup treasure. Continuing on the appetizer list, we sampled escargots out of shell in a light garlic bath not a tasty as we wished. Theres a scallop and shrimp coquille, a large serving of rich taste that we applaud. The pate mason had a nice taste and texture, a good size portion as was a crab cake with a very nice ratio of crab to filler. Of the five salads listed, we enjoyed the artichoke and heart of palm salad very much and liked the Caesar but prefer a richer, deeper flavor. Some 15 entrees adorn the menuwe sampled the traditional beef bourguignon and found it perfect. Likewise the four loin rack of lamb, done medium, produced chops with a fine flavor. We were pleased to try a lovely dish of calves liver Lyonnais, sauted with onions and with a faint raspberry sauce. The half duck a la Orange was tender, tasty meat under a crisp exterior very, very nice. There are 3 chicken dishes, 2 beef, 1 veal plus 3 fish, scampi and frogs legs that complete the entre listing. 3 versions of mussels include mariniere (white wine, garlic w/ French fries), marinara (garlic tomatoes sauce w/fries) and monclade (a curry sauce w/fries). These we will sample next time. We note the crepes offered seafood crepes featuring shrimp, scallops, mussels and Swiss cheese in a lobster sauce; a mixed vegetarian crepes with Swiss cheese and a creative chicken artichoke mushroom crepe in white cream sauce and the Swiss cheese. An amazing 16 dessert items treat the dinerwe chose the crepe suzette flamb with its orange liquor base, a lovely crme caramel and a truly fine large serving of pear tart great! Pricing for these dinner items is very reasonable for gourmet selections as is the beer/wine selections. In addition to a childs menu, there is a Sunset dinner served from 4PM to 5:30PM, 3 courses for only $18.99 per person cash only! Les Aimies hours extend from 4PM to close (10PM or so)closed only on Mondays. Menu offerings do change frequently and daily specials are presented. There is a wealth of experience in this new restaurant we suggest you Go and Enjoy! bocaratontribune.comBy Skip Sheffield Dorfman in Love is a check flick with an offbeat heroine. Deb Dorfman (Sara Rue) is a single, 27-year-old woman stuck with the thankless task of caring for her depressed, recently widowed father Burt (Elliot Gould) while working as an accountant for her arrogant, manipulative brother Dan (Jonathan), who takes advantage of her. The only joy in Debs drab life in the uncool part of Los Angeles is her imaginary love affair with Jay (Johann Urb), a vain, globe-trotting TV journalist who also takes advantage of her. You may be wondering where are the laughs so far? Unless you find Elliot Gould endless kvetching amusing, there are precious few. The catalyst for change in Wendy Kouts (Mork & Mindy, Anything but Love) script is Debs temporary role as cat-sitter for unappreciative Jay. He lives in an unfurnished converted industrial building in a dicey part of L.A. Jay has never really unpacked his belongings, let alone decorated his huge apartment. Deb takes it upon herself to surprise Jay by refinishing his living space. She accomplishes this with the help of a hunky neighbor who calls himself Cookie (Haaz Sleiman). Cookie is a dark, swarthy chap originally from Egypt. Deb is Jewish, with all that implies. Though she initially resists, Deb finds Cookies charm irresistible, much to the chagrin of his very New York Jewish father and her dishonest, conniving brother. Cookie inspires Deb to do a makeover, and a swan begins to emerge. Compared to the petty, selfish characters around her, Deb is a princess who deserves her prince. Yes, Dorfman in Love is a fairy tale aimed at, but not restricted to Jewish girls. It is nice to see Elliot Gould doing his comic shtick again. Sara Rue is quite appealing in an unconventional way, as is Haaz Sleiman handsome and gallant rather than the typical unflattering Arab stereotype. Directed by 27-year-old whiz kid Brad Leong, who made his Tribeca Film Festival debut at the unprecedented age of 21, Dorfman in Love is a slight but ultimately rewarding pleasure. Two and a half stars Dorfman in Love a Rom-Com for Jewish Girls

The officer followed the car into the plaza and watched as it parked in the middle of the lot. A few minutes later, another car, a 2006 Lincoln Pickup, also pulled into the plaza and parked right next to the Camry. The driver of the pickup exited his vehicle and got into the backseat of the Camry. After what appeared to be a hand to hand transaction, the male in the backseat exited and got back into the pickup and left heading east on Palmetto. The Camry left and headed west. Assisting officers followed the pickup and paced it going 50 mph in a 35 mph zone. As officers approached the vehicle, they detected a strong smell of marijuana coming from the car. The driver, Juan Gallardo, exited the vehicle and told officers, I know what you are looking for, its in the backseat. In the backseat officers found a Ziploc bag containing more than 62 grams of marijuana. Gallardo told officers he had purchased the weed from the occupants of the Camry. Meanwhile, officers pulled over the occupants of the Camry due to the fact it only had one tail light working. Again, officers smelled marijuana coming from the car. They also saw three Ziploc bags of marijuana in plain view on the center console. The driver, Carl Porcenat, and passenger, Andrew Gonzalez, were both questioned. Porcenat said he wanted to speak to an attorney, but Gonzalez told officers they came to the plaza to buy marijuana from Gallardo. He said he is a small time drug dealer and just started selling in February. The bags contained over 77 grams of marijuana. Gallardo, Porcenat and Gonzalez were all charged with Possession of Marijuana greater than 20 grams and Possession of Marijuana with intent to distribute and sale of marijuana within 1000 feet of a convenience store.

Edition 14023for news 24/7 go to bocaratontribune.com www.bocaratontribune.comApril 5, through April 11, 2013 What makes a salesperson successful? Not every person is cut out to be a successful salesperson. Some people simply do not have the right combination of character traits and behavior patterns, without which a career in sales would pose only frustrations, anxiety, and a lack of fulfillment. However, for those with the right chemistry, the opportunities for job satisfaction and personal growth in sales are unlimited. To be successful, a person must possess, or be able to adopt, a set of characteristics and behavioral patterns which are essential. Many of these characteristics may be cultivated and refined by conscientious application in on-the-job training. Even a topnotch salesperson or manager is constantly perfecting her or his technique, evaluating their performance, and ascertaining the clients needs and wants. In my experience I have found that successful salespeople have a combination of the following qualities: Empathy Do you find yourself adjusting to another persons moods and behavior, modifying your own position to accommodate another viewpoint? Or, do you find it difficult to anticipate another persons actions or to accept an opinion which is in conflict with your own? We define empathy as, listening to another person attentively and understanding their thoughts, emotions and feelings, and adjusting your own moods and behavior accordingly, (Sherman&Hertz). It is not to be misconstrued as sympathy. If the salesperson can elicit the needs of the customer on both a business and personal level, she or he can deal with those needs realistically. Empathy is one of the most important keys to successful selling. Ego drive -When a client turns you down do you feel angered, dismiss the failure with a shrug of the shoulder or are you driven to overcome the obstacles to your success? A professional salesperson is success driven in a controlled way. She or he bounces back quickly from the failure and looks forward to the next sales presentation as an opportunity to restore self confidence to make up for the past shortcomings. We can say that ego drive pushes the salesperson for constant achievement and selffulfillment. Much like the champion tennis player who is badly beaten in the first set, and bounces back in the next two to win the match. Integrity -Integrity carries a very special meaning in the business world. It defines ones character and reputation in the marketplace, forms the backbone of that persons credibility, and is a major factor in gaining the trust and admiration of all who you work with. Integrity in the business world is simply, describing things as they are and making commitments stand. What you say is what you do. You are judged on your accomplishments and whether you live up to your promises. Creativity -Although it doesnt seem like a trait that would make for an effective salesperson, it is important because it develops your own style of selling. Do you do things in an unquestioning manner, accepting a course of action because, thats the way weve always done it Or do you perceive the way a situation is being handled, then ask yourself, How can I do it better? Emotional maturity -The buying and selling process is an emotional one. Do you get carried away with your emotions under stress or in the throes of a difficult decision or are you able to accept strain and conflict as a normal part of your working day? Clients are frequently and understandably insecure about making their decisions. When a client says something that annoys you, dont take it personally. Internalizing and reacting to negative comments is a sign of immaturity and there is no room for this in the sales arena. Sellers do not have the luxury of overreacting. We suggest that as you read this conduct your own self-appraisal as a prospective salesperson (at the end of this article). Make notes of your personal strengths and also of those areas where you may feel deficient and where you may want to seek improvement. Testing Your Sales Potential How do you rate against other practicing and prospective salespeople in necessary selling characteristics? We devised this test to identify the qualifications of candidates for sales positions. By rating yourself honestly on each of the criteria discussed in this chapter, you will gain an awareness of how you compare with practicing salespeople in the industry. In short, you will know whether a position in sales is right for you. To the right of each characteristic place a number which you feel best reflects the degree to which you possess each of these characteristics. Use the following scale: 5possess to an extreme degree 4possess to own satisfaction 3possess to some extent 2possess an insufficient amount 1dont possess at all 1. Ego Drive (x4) = 2. Empathy (x 4) = 3. Appearance (x 1) = 4. Aggressiveness (x 5) = 5. Integrity (x 3) = 6. Creativity (x 2) = 7.

Sherman WHAT BUSINESS ARE YOU IN?Characteristics of Successful Salespeople Ronald Siegel, partner with the law firm of Brinkley Morgan and president of the board of directors of Jewish Association for Residential Care (JARC), was honored at the Israel Elwyn Tribute to Friends of JARC for his support of both organizations. The event, held at the Boca Raton Museum of Art, honored the three people who have been most involved in both organizations: Mr. Siegel, JARC Executive Director Dr. Debra Hallow, and Evelyn Solomon, board member of both of both JARC and American Friends of Israel Elwyn. The event also sought to raise awareness of both organizations in South Florida. JARC is a non-profit, non-sectarian organization that currently operates ten group homes for adults with developmental disabilities. The homes are located in the Boca Raton/Delray Beach area. JARC also offers apartment living for those who do not require 24hour supervision and vocational training in its own learning and training center. Similarly, Israel Elwyn currently serves more than 2,700 children and adults with disabilities throughout Israel. Israel Elwyns goal is to provide individuals with tools enabling them to make decisions about their own lives and to gain more independence for living and working in the community. "This award is especially meaningful to me because I was able to contribute to the advancement and connection of these two great organizations. I am very proud of the way this relationship has grown," said Siegel, who is credited with introducing the two organizations to each other, leading to an exchange program of first staff and then residents at both facilities. JARC Executive Director Dr. Debra Hallow said, "Ron Siegels commitment as an advocate to people with disabilities both here at JARC and with the Israel Elwyn program demonstrates his exemplary humanitarianism and compassion. He is extremely deserving of this honor and we are fortunate to have him in our community."JARC Honors Ronald Siegel for Work on Behalf of Adults with Disabilities

Commissioner Paulette Burdick was on hand to accept the award at the Florida Association of Counties Legislative Day meeting in Tallahassee. Lee and Collier counties also were awarded for their achievements. Information reported by the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity and Workforce Alliance indicated that as of February 2013, Palm Beach Countys unemployment rate was 7.4 percent the lowest in more than four years, falling below the state rate of 7.5 percent and the national rate of 8.1 percent. During the previous year, the county gained nearly 10,000 jobs, experiencing growth in industries including professional and business services, education and health services, trade/transportation/ utilities, leisure and hospitality, and financial activities. Palm Beach County appreciates the governors recognition of our efforts to create jobs in Palm Beach County, and we look forward to continuing to work with the state to attract and retain businesses in our area, said County Mayor Steven Abrams. The Board of County Commissioners has implemented policies to support economic development through programs offering job growth incentives, ad valorem tax exemptions, lowinterest loans, and expedited permitting. Working cooperatively through the Department of Economic Sustainability (DES), the county collaborates with local municipalities and the Business Development Board to promote job creation and expansion. Analyses performed by DES estimate that businesses assisted through the countys economic development programs in 2012 will have a five-year economic impact of more than $1.3 billion.McDonalds Provides Free Break fast For FCAT StudentsParticipating McDonalds restaurants in Palm Beach and Treasure Coast counties and around the state are inviting students taking Floridas Comprehensive Assessment Test (FCAT) to enjoy a free breakfast on April 15, the first day of testing. The breakfast offer will run from 6 to 8:30 a.m., and includes an Egg McMuffin, a choice of 1% low-fat white milk or a small orange juice, and a package of Apple Slices. This is the fourth consecutive year that McDonalds restaurants in Palm Beach, Martin, St. Lucie, Indian River and Okeechobee counties are offering students free breakfast on the first day of the FCAT. Last year, local McDonalds restaurants served thousands of students on exam day. We are excited to continue the breakfast program. Along with many other local McDonalds owner-operators, managers, and crew members I am a parent and we believe it is important to contribute to the well-being of children in our communities, said Joe Conrado, McDonalds owner-operator. The breakfast McDonalds is offering includes fruit, an English muffin made with 8 grams of whole grain, and low-fat dairy, which will help students start the day. Regardless of whether students eat at home, at their schools or at McDonalds, a balanced breakfast on FCAT day is important, Conrado continued. Students and their families who enjoy breakfast at McDonalds on April 15 are encouraged to plan their visits accordingly so they arrive to school on time. The breakfast offer is available at participating McDonalds restaurants in Florida and valid while supplies last. No substitutions or group redemptions are permitted. Students under age 15 must be accompanied by a parent and be present to redeem the offer.

With the way the new schedule format is laid out, the team who wins the spring championship season will host the Soccer Bowl and have the right to play the winner of the fall league, and with only 12 games in the spring season, every single game is an important one. Teams will hit the ground running as they compete to become the Spring Championship Season Champion. It puts pressure on the coaches and players to win every week, said NASL Commissioner Bill Peterson. They cant afford to have a tie, only the winner of the spring and the winner of the fall play in the championship game. The Strikers come into the season making huge off season moves, and the players see the urgency they will have to play with as this season starts due to the new format, the spring season is more of a sprint with only a 12-game schedule, says defender Scott Gordon. We play a very exciting brand of football and we will be able to come out here and get the fans going, because the better the atmosphere, the better we play. A big question coming into 2013 was the health of Walter Restrepo, who was lost last season after tearing his ACL in practice. I feel much better, says Restrepo. I feel ready to start this new season strong and help my team win any way possible. Stefan Dimitrov, whos on loan with Fort Lauderdale from the New York Cosmos, echoed the excitement to start a new season, we are going to surprise a lot of teams this season. We are ready to get this season rolling on Saturday versus FC Edmonton. We have a good group, we like the team we have put together, said head coach Daryl Shore, The guys all get along, which is the most important, and they all love to play soccer.

Looking to return the mens basketball program to its glory days, Lynn University Director of Athletics Dr. Kristen Migliano turned to a familiar face with the announcement of Jeff Price as the next head mens basketball coach Price started the Lynn mens basketball program in 1993, coaching for six seasons before moving on to Division I Georgia Southern. During his time patrolling the sidelines for the Blue & White, he accumulated a 134-44 (.753) overall record and 20-8 (.714) mark in Sunshine State Conference play. An accomplished collegiate head coach, Price has a 293-186 overall record in 17 seasons, which includes seven 20-win campaigns, eight trips to the postseason and two coach-of-theyear honors. We are excited to welcome Coach Price and his family back to Lynn University as his return to the de Hoernle Sports & Cultural Center is a homecoming, said Migliano, a former student-athlete on the inaugural womens basketball team in 1993. Jeff was the pioneer of Lynn basketball, and now he is committed to the program regaining conference and regional competitiveness. After accepting an offer to start the Lynn program from scratch in March 1993, Price successfully built one of the top collegiate programs in the nation. He averaged nearly 23 wins per season while at the helm of the Lynn program, guiding his teams to 23-7 (1993-94), 20-10 (1994-95), 16-11 (1995-96), 28-3 (1996-97), 22-7 (1997-98) and 25-6 (1998-99) records. Five of his seven career 20-win seasons came at LU, his .753 winning percentage was the highest in the state of Florida over that span and he reached the postseason in all six seasons. My family and I are absolutely thrilled to be part of Lynn University again, Price said. I will be surrounded by great leadership, starting with President Ross to Senior Vice President Greg Malfitano and Dr. Kristen Migliano, who have a tremendous desire to be successful, which is an outstanding combination. During the 1996-97 season, Lynn put together a 20-game winning streak, the longest in the nation, led the team to its first NCAA Division II National Semifinals appearance and had the best overall record in Division II. Additionally, Price was named the NCAA Division II National Coach of the Year as Lynn became the first school in NCAA history to reach the national semifinals in the first season of NCAA competition. I want to do everything I can to repeat the success Lynn had in the mid-90s, added Price. We had a great ride and it was a lot of fun. That is my goal again, to create a winning environment that is exciting for the fans to watch but equally successful . Price spent the past two years at the University of South Alabama where he served as the interim head coach since December following the retirement of his mentor Ronnie Arrow. He was named the associate head coach in August of 2011. During his two-year stint in Mobile, Ala., the Jaguars went 34-25. Prior to joining USA, Price spent the 2010-11 season as head coach at West Virginia Wesleyan where he led the Bobcats to a 19-11 record and a trip to the NCAA Division II National Tournament. It was just the second tournament appearance for West Virginia and marked the second-largest turnaround in the nation as the Bobcats had gone 8-21 the previous season and were 38-105 the previous five. Price was head coach at Georgia Southern for 10 seasons, where he totaled 138 wins, third-most in school history. He won 20 or more twice in his final six seasons at the helm and guided the program to the 2006 National Invitation Tournament. The Eagles were in the midst of six straight non-winning seasons and a combined 29-61 (.322) record in league play before his arrival. It took one year to transform Georgia Southern into a winning team as Price and the Eagles went 16-12 overall and 10-6 in the Southern Conference in 1999-2000. The second-place division finish was enough to earn Price the Southern Conference Coach of the Year Award. Jeff has successfully coached and mentored student-athletes at all collegiate levels, added Migliano. He is a motivator, a true teacher of the game and a tireless recruiter. We are excited for the prospect of Coach Price attracting talented studentathletes to Lynn from throughout Florida The Fighting Knights return nine letterwinners from last seasons team which finished 11-16 overall and 3-13 in the Sunshine State Conference.
