Wayne Barton came on asking for toy donations to give to the needy children of Boca Raton. Right after, Heizer decided to give him a call. Hey, how can I help? Heizer recalled saying. It was then that Heizer made a promise to Barton that every year he was going to help him collect toys. And he did just that. Back in 2005, the Boca Raton Rotary Club Sunset was instrumental in raising money to help purchase an intricate merrygo-round. In celebration of Rotarys 100th anniversary, the club decided to donate the carousel to the citys Parks and Recreations Department where it was then placed at Sugar Sand Park. Because of the Rotarys generosity, the Greater Boca Raton Beach & Parks District, which owns the play area, offered the club a chance to use the carousel one day a year free of charge. In 2007, Heizer proposed to use one of those days to host a toy drive. No one was really using that carrousel, Heizer said. I thought lets use this to help Wayne Barton and help kids during the holidays. Since the first Carousel Day, more and more people got involved. Boca Helping Hands joined forces as well as supporters from Atlantic High School Key Club and four other Rotary clubs. This year, Boca Raton Chamber of Commerce will be joining the event as a sponsor. in Sugar Sand Park from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. It offers families fun and free rides on the carousel as well as hot dogs and hamburgers. There will also be a special appearance from Santa Claus. Participants are urged to bring new, unwrapped toys that will be given to needy kids who may not otherwise receive any presents this holiday season. Our goal is to be the biggest toy drive in the south county, Heizer said. We want to be bigger, we want to be able to give away more toys. In the first Carousel day, they managed to raise a little over a thousand toys in donation. Last year, they hit around four thousand toys and this year, they hope to raise that number to six thousand. Its no longer a club event and its no longer a Rotary event, Heizer said. Its a city event and is open to everyone in the community to come and have a nice time during the holidays.

Path to Health is designed to inform and educate South Floridas uninsured population and others within the community on how the changes in the healthcare law will impact them and what they need to do in order to secure affordable healthcare coverage. Delray Medical Center and West Boca Medical Center remain committed to delivering safe, quality care in the community they serve. As care givers, ensuring that the community and patients understand all of the coverage options available to them is an extension of the hospitals mission. The Path to Health campaign will work with community partners and offer educational materials and resources around navigating the insurance exchanges and the ACA. The comprehensive campaign will break down the barriers of this complicated law, and provide userfriendly guidance and tips on what community members need to know in order to make sure they are prepared to choose the best coverage for themselves and their families.

West Boca, Delray Medical Centers Launch Path to Health CampaignBy Carol Kassie The Delray Beach Chorales holiday concert, Voices of the Season, will feature the 60-voice Chorale accompanied by a professional instrumental ensemble. They will perform a selection of choruses and solos (sung by their Artist-in-Residence professionals) from Handels Messiah, as well as a number of seasonal favorites, including Hark the Herald Angels Sing, Away in A Manger, Do You Hear What I Hear, Silent Night (sung in German), and two Hanukah favorites, Bashana Habaah (sung in Hebrew), and Festival of Flame. The concerts will take place at the Duncan Theatre in Lake Worth on at the First Presbyterian Church in Delray Beach on Saturday, Dec. 7, at 3 p.m. The Chorales Artistic Director Eric Keiper is enthusiastic about both concert venues. Theres not a bad seat in the house, he says of the Duncan Theatre, And the First Presbyterian Church provides beautifully live acoustics in a wonderfully pastoral setting. The seasonal music for this concert, both Chanukah and Christmas, is joyous, touching, celebratory, and familiar, he continues. Audiences are sure to leave our concerts with a song in their hearts and on their lips. Founded 30 years ago by a group of Delray Beach singers, the Chorale has consistently attracted talented amateur and professional vocalists from Fort Lauderdale to Palm Beach. The group performs with an orchestral ensemble consisting of array of talented instrumentalists, including members of the former Florida Philharmonic. The Delray Beach Chorales mission is to promote and encourage the art of singing and to share the experience of great music with the community. Although their initial focus was on the classics of great choral literature, both traditional and contemporary, over the past several years they have broadened their musical scope to include works of 20th century composers, including Rachmaninoff, Copland, and Gershwin. Their April 2013 concert featuring the music of Leonard Bernstein and Stephen Sondheim sold out. The Chorale also operates a Music Academy Program, the only one of its kind in the state. Five professional musicians selected as Artists-in-Residence perform as soloists with the chorale, act as section leaders, and provide instruction to a select group of talented high school singers who also sing with the chorale. Tickets for the Delray Beach Chorales Voices of the Season are $25 each; $5 for students, and can delraybeachchorale.org/ or by Group Rates (15 or more) are also available.Popular Chorale Groups Holiday Concert to Feature Crowd-Pleasing Selections

Ron Allen The Boca Raton Tribune EDITORIALS/LETTERSThe Boca Raton TribuneFounded January 15, 2010 Publisher Business C.E.OC.O.O. Editorial Interim Editor Managing Editor Online Edition Editor : Associate Online Editor Social Media Software Engineer Thank you Lord for another day Help my brothers and sisters along their way Thanks for good health and a few dollars in my wallet And please bring peace to our nation. Three decades or so ago, I used to write stories about happenings in my community. I recall covering every event or program where the public was served a free meal on Thanksgiving Day. And I enjoyed sharing that slice of life, many times, of those less fortunate with our privileged readers. I am following the same track today, with the only difference being, I am in a position to help in a greater way. There are lots of people to salute and be thankful for this year. But first, happy belated Thanksgiving to our readers, many of whom doubtless still alternate between bouts of grief and deep depression. In spite of everything thats going on in your life, there is a lot that you ought to be your blessings. On this Thanksgiving weekend, it would be easy for me to admonish you to be grateful for all the good things you enjoy friends and family, food and freedom. After all, this is the first long weekend of the fall. It also is a chance for all of us to be thankful individually and collectively. Despite undeniable challenges faced by individuals, groups and the nation as a whole, we truly are a nation of plenty. The arrival of the bounty of the fall harvest is a tangible reminder of this. Illustrations of the great community in which we live will surely be the acts of kindness and charity extended to fellow human beings everything from physical sustenance for those unable to provide this for themselves at this time, to the gift of time and a friendly home to someone alone or new to our area. I am moved by the effort of an organization I am privileged to partner with this year to feed more than 1,000 meals to residents in my community. During the five days leading up to Thanksgiving, an army of about 7,000 volunteers in Palm Beach Gardens prepared more than 100,000 Thanksgiving meals for distribution throughout south and central Florida. These volunteers with Big Heart Brigade, a Palm Beach Gardens charitable organization, set up shop and worked in shifts on 12-acre fire station site in their city. They did everything from mashed potatoes, prepared turkeys and cooked green beans. They parked vehicles, hauled trash and even colored place mats. In the end, 1,400 residents in the Delray Beach, Boca Raton and Boynton Beach area received a meal thanks to a partnership forged by KOP Mentoring Network, formerly Knights of Pythagoras Mentoring Network and CRA Media Group. Each meal included roast turkey and cranberry sauce, mashed potatoes and gravy, stuffing, green beans and homemade pumpkin bread. This is a classic example of the power of collaboration. Big Heart Brigade began the annual Thanksgiving meal giveaway in 1992, providing meals for 17 needy families. In 2001, Christ Fellowship, the church that lies just west of the fire station, joined the effort and 6,000 meals were served. That total has increased each year, along with preparation efforts. As we reflect on these thoughts, the anything? How Thankful are you?
Edition 1649for news 24/7 go to bocaratontribune.com www.bocaratontribune.com November 29, through December 5, 2013 The Boca Raton Tribune EDITORIALS & LETTERS By Dr. Synesio Lyra, Jr.POSITIVE LIVING world, having received his education in four of them. When he resided in southern California, he wrote a weekly column for the daily Anaheim Bulletin, which was carried for about six years, until he moved to south Florida. Your Good Deeds for the Day! Competition, Integrity, and Compassion bocaratontribune.comWe often hear some people exclaim, This was my good deed for the day after they fulfill an act of charity, or do something else which specifically helps someone. It is good and admirable that many individuals are interested in doing anything for others whenever they can. Nevertheless, no one should be satisfied with just one good deed for the day if additional opportunities present themselves. Wherever we are, if we are observant, we can readily encounter several more chances to do something which may change another life for good, albeit a small act on our part. Many persons very quickly limit themselves to something that satisfies their own ego, that bring them a sense of personal pride, an action which was appreciated by its recipient, and often by others who noticed the occurrence. And thats What Im trying to convey here is that as good and significant as one good deed always is, let us not be satisfied with just that, especially when we are perpetually surrounded by countless other opportunities of doing good for our fellow humans in Normally, these things dont cost us anything while they make an enormous, positive difference in another life. The trouble is that too many people just think of themselves and hardly notice what is happening round about them. They also fail to realize that when they help others some, they are helping their own Furthermore, as valuable as one single act which aids another human is, no one should stop there. Keep on spreading your good cheer, your good will toward others. A friend of mine many years ago coined the phrase, the secret of success us to find a need and fill it; to find a hurt and heal it. And with that attitude he surveyed an entire section of southern California, and on the basis of his findings, developed a major institution which for so many years fulfilled those noble purposes, If you have an umbrella, in a rainy day you can help someone without one to reach her car in a parking lot to which youre also headed; if you notice a waitress downcast while carrying on her high pressure labors, you can offer a word of cheer and, thus, encourage her; if a neighbor is incapacitated in any way, you can offer to do something within your limitations but which can be fully valid to that person or family; in the loss of a loved one, you can convey your condolences to co-workers, friends near or far, and neighbors. keep your physical eyes and the sight of your heart focused on what surrounds you, anywhere, anytime, and you shall have no trouble in finding more than just one good When we talk about competition in business, typically we are thinking in terms of trying to achieve an advantage over our competitors whether through the products or services we offer, customer service, or other factors that could enable us to increase market share. And whenever a circumstance presents itself that could enable us to gain a competitive advantage, we know it would be wise to grab it. However, a friend of mine, perspective on competition and the practice of capitalizing on a competitors misfortune. In his book, Winning through Integrity, Cliff included a story about his friend, Robert Ingram, who owned two radio stations, one that specialized in classical music. Mr. Ingram had a monopoly on classical music radio programming in his city until a new competitor arrived. The competitors station presented similar programming, threatening to put a significant dent in the advertising sales and revenue generated by Mr. Ingrams station. One day severe winds blew down the transmitting tower of the rival station. Many people in Mr. Ingrams situation might have celebrated the competitors misfortune. However, he chose a very different approach. Instead of waiting for his opponent to fail because he was no longer able to broadcast, Mr. Ingram sent the chief engineer of his own company to get the competitors station up and running again. When someone asked why he would do such a thing, knowing that choosing not to do anything likely would have resulted in eliminating the competitor, Mr. Ingrams reply he needed to survive. In the Bibles New Testament, we you really keep the royal law found in Scripture, Love your neighbor as have used the competitors problem for his own advantage. But he also realized that, had the circumstances been reversed, he would have appreciated receiving such assistance himself. Too often in todays demanding, high-pressure, bottom line-oriented business environment, we are willing to do anything to secure an important sale, get a signature on a contract, or somehow undermine those competing with us. The thought of offering help to them in a desperate time of need rarely occurs. But if we are committed to conducting business with integrity and compassion concentrating on the best interests of those we encounter during the course of a typical workday, perhaps a radical change in our thinking is necessary. Another New Testament passage tells us, Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit, but in humility consider others better than yourselves. Each of you should look not only to your own interests, but also to the interests of others sound difficult, because it is. We cant be certain of the next sale, or of finalizing the next deal. But if integrity is our priority, we know what to do even when it is difficult. Will you do the right thing, even if it is for the benefit of a competitor?

The show promises to be jam-packed with all the hallmarks of Motown impeccable harmonies, dazzling choreography, flashy outfits and those instantlyrecognizable grooves that everyone knows and loves. The Temptations are everyones favorites, says Tony Brocco of Premier Concert Group, which is producing the event. They were the quintessential Motown group because of their look, their sound and their hits My Girl, Get Ready, Aint Too Proud to Beg it just doesnt get any better than that, Brocco added. The Motown Holiday Spectacular features an all-star line-up of vocalists and musicians assembled from the ranks of the Miracles and the Capitols and former members of the Temptations. The performers, collectively known as The Motown Experience, have each paid their dues performing with Motown legends on stages around the world.

November 29, through December 5, 2013www.bocaratontribune.com B2 Edition 164 Section B Entertainment Skip SheffieldSunlight Jr. a Dark Portrait of Florida LifeThe best thing I can say about really glad I do not live in the Greater Tampa Bay area. by Laurie Collyer (Sherrybaby), paints Tampa/Clearwater at its worst; a barren land of strip malls, tawdry motels, trailer parks and trailer trash. It is playing locally at FAUs Living Room Theaters. Naomi Watters and Matt Dillon play a low-rent, low-educated couple, Melissa and Richie, who live in one of those tawdry motels near a strip mall that has the 24-hour convenience store of the title. Her boss is a sexist pig who cruelly orders her on the graveyard shift, making her hard life even more miserable. Richie is an embittered paraplegic due to a construction accident. His only subsistence is a small disability check, doled out reluctantly by social workers who suspect he is just a lazy bum. When Melissa announces she is pregnant, Richie only momentarily expresses alarm, and then claims he is happy. The two are obviously in love and really have the hots for each other, so why not get married? Melissa is being stalked by a creepy ex-boyfriend (Norman Reedus) who deals drugs and harasses her. If that werent bad enough, Melissa gets fired from her crappy job. If you think there is a silver lining to this story you would be wrong. It is admirable that Laurie Collyer feels such empathy with the poor, downtrodden, disadvantaged and self-destructive members of society, but their sad tale of woe is not very interesting, let alone uplifting. Two stars Blue is the Warmest Color at Gateway Theatre Blue is the Warmest Color, which won the coveted Palme dOr at this years Cannes Film Festival, is playing an exclusive run at the Gateway Classic Theater in Fort Lauderdale. The best thing I can say about it is the two young stars are winsome and emotionally expressive and the story will surely appeal to a select audience that wants to see an evocative riseand-fall fable of young, lesbian, coming-of-age love. Newcomer Adele Exarchopoulos plays Adele, the bicurious high school girl with a love of knowledge and books. Emma (Lea Seydoux) is the older, blue-haired Sapphic siren who catches Adeles attention instantly. Director and cowriter Abdellatif Kechiche (Black Venus) likes to take his time telling a story. The problem for an old coot like me is that Blue is indulgently long (just short of three hours) and rather repetitive. I say that from seeing only the first hour or so of the film. Not only am I impatient; I am a technological clod. The movie distributor sent me an online link to Blue. It took me forever, with much back-and-forth to New York, just to log on. I had intended to pick up where I left off at the one-hour mark, but I found the link automatically resets to zero. I tried fast-forwarding, and even that was time-consuming, so I finally gave up. You wont have that problem at the Gateway, which caters to a select audience that enjoys alternative fare. Its not that I was offended by the I just lost interest. Tonys Tips For SuccessFailure is not a Person.... It is an Event! Last week, I discussed a 7 step as a reminder these steps included, Identifying your Goals, stating your benefits, identifying your major obstacles, identifying the skills and knowledge needed to achieve the goal, identifying your support system, drawing out your plan of action, and setting your completion date. Today I will be discussing the number one thing that prevents us from completing our goals. That thing or person is traditionally ourselves. Nine times out of ten we stop just short of victory because it got to hard, took to long, or we just got tired. These are the moments we need to dig Every morning (until I move closer to Boca Raton), I drive 40 minutes to work. Sometimes, it is smooth sailing, just a few red lights, light traffic, I just hit the cruise control and I sail to work. Other days I hit every red light, there is a major pile up on the turnpike, and it seems like there is construction the even bother getting up out of bed to go to work because I know I will run into obstacles along my journey? Or do I take small steps in preparations to better deal with them? We will all encounter obstacles on our journey to success. We will all get Thomas Edison failed 1000 times Disney was fired from a newspaper for lacking original ideas. Dr. Suesss first book was rejected by 27 publishers. Even a good friend of mine, Sensei Stefani Walkling of Elite Force Martial Arts, failed her 1st degree degree Black Belt, Chief Instructor and a inspiration to hundreds of kids Well, How do you stay focused on the goal and persevere when times get tough? Surround yourself with like minded people. Do not become what Zig Ziglar calls a S.N.I.O.P. (Susceptible to Negative Influences of Other People). Sometimes friends, peers and even family do not want you to succeed. They will even encourage your failure. Eliminate those people. Find encouragement and those that support your goal. Look for that extended hand when you are down. Yes there are Halls of Fame to honor individual people, but none of those honorees will tell you they did it alone. Next week, I will discuss how to become an encourager, and how you can have everything you want in life, if you just help enough other people get what they want.

The next few weeks are the most celebrated weeks of the year. Everyone wants to celebrate, because everyone else is. Those that make the effort to diet, only miss out. If you start your efforts to lose weight on losing a pound a week for the nest 50 weeks. Remember you are not going to diet next year around Christmas and New Years. You will lose 25 pounds with very little effort. Dieting now will require a great deal of effort, and you will lose a few pounds at best. More importantly you will lose all the joyous times that are available to you. You may lose a few pounds now, but you will most likely gain it all back by February. If you must do something, as you have made a commitment to start changing, than start looking at what you and others are eating. Do the portions look normal; are they the same size you remember eating as a young adult? How many deserts are you eating or trying? How many courses are you eating per meal? Are you having an appetizer, entre that consists of a vegetable two starches a protein and a desert? Are others eating as much as you are, or are they eating more? Has every meal become a celebration? Do you watch TV shows that teach you how to enjoy food even more, are these shows teaching you how to make better deserts? How big are the portions of each meal? Do you watch the show while you are eating, do you eat after? Has eating morphed into and obsession?

November 29, through December 5, 2013www.bocaratontribune.com B4 Edition 164 Section B Does DESIGN MATTER? Douglas A. MummawWhere are the cars? In the sky? Vertical Parking is here to stay. As the Downtown transforms into a dense urban fabric woven with residential, commercial and entertainment uses, the prototypical parking lots have vanished. There are still opportunities to park on the street, but the bulk of the parking has shifted to vertically oriented garages. Is this a positive improvement? Absolutely. is heard a lot in the Downtown. Especially lately, once some of the on-street spaces at Mizner Park had parking meters installed. Parking is a convenience. Direct parking at curbside to a retail or restaurant destination is a valuable convenience. Paying to park is normal in all vibrant City Centers. Getting used to paying for it is another discussion. Garages are full is another statement. As a local resident and frequent visitor to the downtown, I can honestly say I have never experienced a full garage. I may park a little higher or maybe further away, but taking an elevator or the stairs a couple of extra levels is not a problem for me. Valet is always an option, but again, you should expect to pay for the added convenience. Parking Demand in a downtown is real and must be managed. There are more than a dozen parking garages in the downtown. There is a mixture of retail, restaurant, residential and office buildings with thousands of parking spaces available. Most are tucked inside the large buildings with entrances from side streets and provide convenient elevators and stairs. All of these parking garages are FREE to park. Many have overlapping uses that reserve spaces during normal non-peak demand periods, so you must carefully look for way-finding signage that restrict parking during those times. During the peak night time hours, these spaces ARE available. This is the essence of Shared Parking. It is a practical and scientific method of balancing the ebb & flow of the parking function. Parking is dynamic. People are constantly arriving and leaving. Unless there is a specific unique event happening, like a concert or festival, parking spaces are constantly filling up AND becoming available. To create a sense of place and promote the pedestrian experience, the automobile must subordinate to the pedestrian and urban planned architectural spaces. It is obvious that cars are needed to transport visitors from beyond walkable neighborhoods next to the Downtown. Public Transportation in Boca Raton is increasing, but is not a pragmatic choice yet. However, once you arrive at the Downtown district, the cars should be parked in areas where function is practical and the urban experience is maximized. I encourage you to look for these parking opportunities. I would also encourage you to look for the garages that may not be directly next to your destination. These secret spots are there, you just need to discover them. The added benefit is that the walking experience from them to your destination will be enjoyable and may allow you to discover other future dining or shopping opportunities. The sky cranes are working hard to create the newest mixeduse projects in our Downtown. Not only will these projects add new retail and restaurants to our Must try lists, these buildings will add to the surplus of parking available to the public. Vertical Parking is here to stay friends. It is my goal in writing these articles that you are beginning to understand that DESIGN MATTERS in our Downtown. Vertical parking is a pragmatic and necessary functional need that permits the pedestrian experience to be prioritized and enhanced to ensure our city maximizes its Urban Form potential. I look forward to our ongoing conversations.....Does DESIGN MATTER in our Downtown? Volume VI

In a call to action communication that went out to its members, NAR is requesting members to contact their legislatures and ask for a time out in the implementation of the law. The NAR communication states the problem as Congress providing a year reauthorization of the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP), but severe implementation problems threaten to undermine real estate transactions where flood insurance is required to obtain a mortgage. The have caused serious confusion and hardship for property owners. Management Agency (FEMA) continues to delay and miss deadlines. transition to true risk rates has plagued consumers with increases in rates beyond what anyone imagined possible. The solution according to NAR in the call to action is a four-year-timeout. Calling a time-out will enable the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to complete the affordability study already mandated by BW12, propose targeted regulations to address affordability issues found in the study, and give Congress adequate time to review these regulations. NAR is asking its members to write their legislators and urge immediate Congressional action on the Homeowner Flood Insurance Affordability Act. This bipartisan, bicameral legislation takes the crucial first step of delaying further implementation of some rate increases contained in the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) reauthorization known as the BiggertWaters law (BW12). The legislation, was introduced by Reps. Michael Grimm, R-N.Y., and Maxine Waters, D-Calif., and by Sens. Bob Menendez, will delay further implementation of major rate changes until the Federal Emergency Management Agency completes an affordability study; creates an office of the Advocate to investigate flood insurance rate increases; and reports to Congress with proposed solutions to identified problems.

About ten years ago, I mentioned it to him and he said not to worry about it, that he had torn it up. He lied. I filed a case for divorce against him and he and his lawyer filed papers attaching the old agreement. My brother, who is a real estate lawyer, is helping me. He said that the agreement was so old and unfair that no judge would enforce it. In the agreement, I waived alimony. I also agreed that anything saved from my husbands earnings, during the marriage would be his non-marital property, and anything I earned, and saved, would be my separate property. At the time of the agreement, we were both working and making about the same amount of money. Since then we have become very wealthy as the result of the success of my husbands hedge fund. I left my career to raise children. Is my brother right, do you think the judge will throw out the agreement? Florida has adopted a Uniform statute which made some material changes in your favor. Historically, neither the unfairness of your agreement, nor its age would disqualify the agreement under Florida law. You did not say where the two of you lived and signed the agreement. If the agreement was signed in another state, that states law might apply. In some states, a court can set aside an agreement if it has turned out unfairly because of changing circumstances. Under Floridas current statute absolute unfairness, called inconsolability, may provide you grounds to have the agreement set aside. You did not describe the circumstances surrounding your signing the agreement. If you were coerced into the agreement, not given adequate time to review the agreement before you signed it,, or denied the right to have an attorney of your choice in negotiating the agreement, a Florida court might set it aside, if it were a Florida agreement, or if the law of the state where it was signed was similar to Floridas law. If you and your husband did not fully disclose your assets, liabilities and income to one another at the time the agreement was signed, it might be fatal to the agreement. It is possible that the Florida court will disregard the law of another state, if it was fundamentally different from Florida law. If the agreement were upheld, you would receive no alimony and no property distribution, unless your husband agreed to settle the matter. To create a negotiating position you will need the advice of knowledgeable counsel. It appears to be a good time for your brother to go back to his real estate practice and help you find a very experienced matrimonial attorney you help you through this legal thicket. It appears as if you have a lot to lose if a court upholds the agreement.When The Dicult Way Is The EasiestFAITHBy Robert J. Tamasy Something about the human psyche prefers the path of least resistance, the easy way, the course that requires the smallest investment of blood, sweat and tears. But history teaches that quick and simple is rarely the avenue for achieving lasting success and significance. In the realms of entertainment and art, we often hear about the overnight success, the person that was a virtual unknown one day whose name was on the lips of of a major motion picture; a singer soaring to the top of the music charts; an author whose book gains widespread public acclaim, turning her into an instant celebrity. But we all know that even though a person may go from being unnoticed to stardom in the blink of an eye, much effort, struggle and preparation were invested to make that overnight success possible. My friend, Gary Highfield, is a great example. In his book, When Want To Becomes Have childhood, including some heartwrenching experiences. As a young adult with a wife and three children, he had a dead-end, hourly wage job, barely scraping by. He wanted a better life for his family, and then his want to became have to, starting an ambitious self-improvement program. Garys book not only tells his personal story, but also presents many of the principles and wisdom he gained over the years through hard work, determination, a refusal to quit and the grace and timely provision of God. His path was difficult, but he refused to accept failure and the seemingly easier alternative of resigning himself to being a victim of his circumstances. In the process, Garys career transformed from frustrating, unfulfilling manual labor to great success in sales and entrepreneurship. Today many disadvantaged people are being promised entitlements, but he understood his true entitlement was to utilize the talents and abilities God had built into him to realize his personal and professional goals and dreams. Today he seeks to help others in similar circumstances. The Bible speaks a lot about this, both in workplace and spiritual terms. Here Sufferings serve to strengthen us. Hardships can build endurance, just as years of training equip top athletes to perform at championship levels, far beyond their peers. but we also rejoice in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope. And hope does not disappoint us No such thing as a quick fix. Many people want instant success, rewards without the struggle. But often formulating a plan, even if it takes time and overcoming challenges to carry out, can serve as a reward in itself. Steady plodding brings prosperity; hasty speculation Struggles shape and refine us. A caterpillar faces great difficulty escaping the cocoon after turning into a butterfly, but its struggle is rewarded as it flies majestically through the air. Similarly, hard work refines us into who and what we are to become. Consider it pure joy, my brothers, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith develops perseverance. Perseverance must finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking Robert J.

Edition 16423for news 24/7 go to bocaratontribune.com www.bocaratontribune.com November 29, through December 5, 2013BusinessThe Boca Raton Tribune By Nicholas MessinaAmongst the many artists at the Advocacy & Art event at the Armory Art Center in West Palm Beach were Boca Raton residents, Art Siegel, Bill Farran and Michael Gora. The event focused on raising money from the artwork to support the fight against anti-Semitism and religious segregation. The main objective of the League is to stop the defamation of the conscience and, if necessary, by law. The ADL consistently hosts events to raise money and further prevent Art Siegel, once employed in television, used his knowledge to create his own company, Kinetic Vistas Inc. His artwork is framed around a metropolitan setting, and captures active scenes of city life. Siegels artwork has been in many prominent galleries including the Boca Raton Museum of Art and The Philharmonic Center for the Arts in Naples, Florida. He uses big city settings with groups of people interacting in many different ways and combines architectural elements such as metal, plastic, and wood, giving his artwork a 3D appeal. The spontaneity of the metropolitan atmosphere such as a train or subway station combined with the real items such as girders or rails combine to create beautiful scenery that changes depending on the angle of which it is looked upon. The figures in the works are always a mystery leaving the viewer to determine the attitude of the figures in the works. Michael Gora, another artist from Boca Raton, has been a practicing attorney for close to fifty years. Several years ago, Gora took up photography at the Boca Raton Museum of Art, Art School. Successful in his endeavor, some of Goras paintings have been accepted into a number of museums, including the Boca Raton Museum where he began his photographic career. Unlike the Siegel and Gora, Bill Farran creates artwork with wood as opposed to film. He has been creating linoleum and wood cuts of Eastern European synagogues, which was a the end of World War II. Farran uses his art work to help people remember The artwork was breathtaking; the artists created some incredibly moving pieces to benefit ADLs critical mission, said Hava Holzhauer, ADL Florida Regional Director. The turnout for the event was excellent, as many people came and went as the art show progressed. The artists met with collectors to exchange stories and converse about their love of art. One hundred percent of the proceeds went to the ADL to support their programs around the entire state of Florida. Boca Regional Introduces Unique Initiative to Children of Cancer Patients Boca Raton Regional Hospital is the first cancer program in the state of Florida to offer the Childrens Lives Include Moments of Bravery (CLIMB) Program to children of cancer patients. Developed by the Childrens Treehouse Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to the emotional support of children who have parents with cancer, the CLIMB Program helps youngsters cope and share their feelings of concern during this stressful time in their lives. CLIMB will be offered to children ages six to 11 and will meet once per week for four weeks. Under the direction of a specially trained clinical social worker, the sessions use discussion and art to help participants express their feelings. Children are provided with their own workbook, which they can share with family members. There is no charge for the program. According to Elsa Raynor, a licensed clinical social worker at Boca Regionals Eugene M. and Christine E. Lynn Cancer Institute, CLIMB has been implemented at some of the nations leading cancer centers such as MD Anderson and Memorial Sloan-Kettering where the program has demonstrated a significant, positive impact on these children. Our colleagues at other institutions have found the CLIMB Program to be very beneficial at increasing a childs understanding of cancer and its treatments, normalizing their feelings of sadness and better equipping them to express and manage any anger they may be experiencing, she said. Raynor said that other benefits include improved communication between the parent and child and essentially teaching children that their parents cancer is not their fault and they are not alone. The CLIMB Program is part of a robust and innovative series of initiatives at the Lynn Cancer Institute that are aimed at addressing the varied and sometimes daunting non-clinical needs of a cancer patient and their loved ones. CLIMB is a component of the Institutes broader HUGS (Helping U Get Support) Program, which is a comprehensive effort to support children and teens. Both are part of the umbrella CINDY Bertuch Rosencrans Life Expressions Program, which was founded at the Institute and provides emotional, personal, educational and logistical support for a patient and their family at all phases of diagnosis and treatment, with an emphasis on supporting the end-of-life process. We take great pride in the therapeutic aspects of our services at the Lynn Cancer Institute, which have received national recognition for their quality and capabilities, said Dr. Louise Morrell, medical director. That said, we have made a concerted effort to also provide the psychosocial support and care for patients and their families that is so vitally important and often lacks the emphasis it deserves. These unique programs are indicative of that commitment. Boca Raton Residents Volunteer Talent to the Anti-Defamation League Art Show and Auction bocaratontribune .com

Salazar was signed back in March after a successful preseason with the club. Salazar appeared in 17 games for the Red and Yellow, tallying four goals, and one assist. Three of the goals Salazar scored were from penalties. The Colombian native finished the season on a high-note scoring in each of the last three matches. On May 26, Salazar donned the captains armband, as he scored the lone goal of the match as he led the Strikers to a 1-0 win in Edmonton on the way to their first road victory of the season. As the Strikers look to build momentum after a very good Fall Season, which saw them move from last place to 5th, Salazar will be a big part of those plans. Salazars emergence as a team leader and dominating presence in our midfield made him a high priority signing for 2014 and beyond, said Strikers Managing Director Tim Robbie. Were pleased to have him coming back next year. Previously, Salazar has played professionally for club teams in Colombia, Costa Rica, Chile, Venezuela, Iran, Panama and now the United States. His experience includes matches in tournaments such as the Copa Libertadores and for the Colombian U23 national team. He has appeared in more than 250 professional matches, scoring 50 goals over that span. Im very happy because I feel that in the Strikers Ive found a family, said Carlos Salazar. Im very grateful to the Strikers management and especially to the president for giving me an opportunity and having the trust in me to give me another year with the team. Also returning for the 2014 NASL season are midfielders Manny Gonzalez and Gonzalo de Mujica, who were both re-signed by the Strikers. Gonzalez appeared in 17 games for the Strikers, starting 12 and recording 2 assists and no goals. De Mujica appeared in nine games for the club without any goals or assists. There is still many questions left unanswered for the Strikers; most notability, there is still no word on if the team will bring back head coach Gunther Kronsteiner, who took the team from dead last in the Spring Season to contenders in the Fall. Both parties are interested in a return, stated a source close with the organization.
