4 -Edition 171 www.bocaratontribune.comCommunity News Community NewsThe Boca Raton Tribune Olympic Heights High Zerorobotics Team Recognized at MITBy Bito David Zero Robotics is a robotics programming competition where the robots are SPHERES (Synchronized Position Hold Engage and Reorient Experimental Satellites) inside the International Space Station. The competition starts online where teams from across the United States and Europe program the SPHERES satellite to solve an annual challenge. After several phases of virtual competition in a simulation environment that mimics the real SPHERES, finalists are selected to compete in a live championship aboard the ISS. In the first semester of the 2013-2014 school year, the Olympic Heights ZeroRobotics team signed up for this after-school virtual challenge. The game is motivated by a current problem of interest to NASA and MITthe possibility of a comet striking the earth! Student software controls satellite speed, rotation, direction of travel, etc. Depending on the game premise, the students must program their while conserving resources, and staying within specified time and code-size limits. The programs are autonomous that is, the students cannot control the satellites during the test itself. Almost 200 teams from around the United States and Europe went through many rounds of elimination, and the top teams, including Olympic Heights, travelled to MIT from Jan. 16 to 18 to take part in the final round. Olympic Heights was the only Palm Beach County School invited to participate in this final round. The team members who attended were Joseph Landry, Sarah Curtis, Ryan Dingman, and Shayna Soares, mentored by engineering teacher Nimmi Arunachalam. Other members of the team are Jerry Zuili, Jake Rice, Julia Grober and Charles McGuire. The team was also mentored by parent volunteer, Patrick Zuili. At the finals on Jan. 17, teams were able to submit their code and watch via a live feed two astronauts run their computer programs aboard the International Space Station. Teams were also invited to send a representative for an interview session, to discuss game strategies employed. Olympic Heights senior Joseph Landry spoke about OHs team, called Pride of Boca, in front of an audience containing four space shuttle astronauts, Hollywood director Gavin Hood and Visual Effects Supervisor Matthew Butler, and hundreds of students and parents. He was also broadcast live on the web throughout the world as well as to the International Space Station. Additionally, the OH students met the astronauts and the director, took a tour of MIT, and explored MITs research facilities and labs. It was an amazing experience, Participating in this incredible conference really reinforced my love Heights!Chicago-based Cancer Treatment Center to Bring 225 Jobs to CityBy CRA NEWS SERVICECancer Treatment Centers of America is moving its national headquarters to Boca Raton from suburban Chicago, the Boca Raton Tribune has learned. The Schaumburg, Ill.-based company is expected to employ some 225 people. We are excited to have Cancer Treatment Centers of America become part of our community, Mayor Susan Whelchel said. Information on how many employees would relocate was not given. CTCA has yet to choose an exact location in Boca Raton, and no date has been given for when the company will move. The five-hospital national network has facilities in Goodyear, Ariz.; Newnan, Ga.; Philadelphia; Tulsa; and Zion, Ill. A recent Modern Healthcare investigation found that three of these facilities were among the nations leaders in receiving Medicare supplemental outlier payments that are based on hospital retail prices as opposed to standard Medicare payments. The decision to relocate to Boca Raton was based on the favorable business climate, closeness to three airports, and other factors determined to be helping allow CTCA accelerate investment in talent, technology and other resources, according to a news release from Gov. Rick Scotts office. Gerard van Grinsven, CTCA president and CEO, said in the release that the Boca Raton location provided company employees exciting opportunities for further personal and professional development. He thanked the state of Florida, the city of Boca Raton, the Palm Beach County Business Development Board, and the governors Enterprise Florida organization for their assistance with our evaluation of the benefits associated with our relocation. Selecting Boca Raton as our new corporate headquarters represents Treatment Centers of America to serve even more patients in the future, while simultaneously providing our dedicated and valued employees with exciting opportunities for further personal and professional development, van Grinsven said. Van Grinsven replaced Stephen Bonner as CEO last year. Bonner remains with the company as executive chairman. Illinois officials made a pretty aggressive offer to keep CTCAs headquarters in the state, said Dave Roeder, spokesman for the Illinois Department of Commerce. The sweeteners Illinois offered the company include an income tax break through its Economic Development for a Growing Economy, or EDGE, program which offers corporate income tax breaks based on a percentage of personal income tax returns it could expect program was also on the table. Altogether, the proposal was to locations they have in Schaumburg and Zion, Roeder said. Were here; we couldve lost more. Roeder noted that the Illinois Health Facilities and Services Review Board recently approved an $84 million 168,000-square-foot patient tower at the CTCAs Midwestern Regional Medical Center, a 73-bed hospital in Zion.


Edition 1715for news 24/7 go to Candidate For Seat A Has Already Won ElectionCandidate For Seat A Has Already Won Election The Boca Raton City Council elections are not for another couple months yet one candidate has already secured his spot in Seat A come March 11. Singer, who was running for Seat A, won the seat after having no opposition after candidate Craig Ehmst changed from Seat A to Seat B. Seat A is currently occupied by Deputy Mayor Susan Haynie who is running for the Mayor seat against City Councilman Anthony election to council and could have stayed on until 2015, however, he has to resign his council seat in order to run for mayor, according to city clerk Susan Saxton. Since Singer was the only person that filed paperwork to qualify for Seat A, he is deemed elected and his name will not appear on the ballot on March 11. Singers three-year term will begin on March 31 and like all the council candidates who win, hell have to be sworn in. The man who changed seats, Craig Ehmst, is now running for Seat B versus incumbent Michael Mullaugh, candidates Mohamed Abdalla, and Eric Gooden. In a campaign event on January 23, Ehmst spoke about the switch. I felt Scott was a responsible individual and Mike is a nice person, but we have to get into a lot more detail, and Id better serve the community by running against Mike. Another seat which is up for grabs is Seat D, which is only a one-year term for the unexpired portion of Anthonys term. The people running for Seat D are Yaniv Alcalay, Rosetta V. Bailey, and Robert S. Weinroth. Only 6,851 city residents voted in the 2012 Municipal Election, according to Palm Beach County Supervisor of Elections totals. Only city residents can vote, not anyone with a Boca Raton address who lives in the county but not within city limits. We at The Boca Raton Tribune want to be more interactive with our readers.

Edition 1717for news 24/7 go to BOCA RATON, Fla. (January 27, 2014) The Department of History in Florida Atlantic Universitys Dorothy F. Schmidt College of Arts and Letters presents a lecture on Zen and the Art of Formless Precepts in the Evolving Platform Sutra on Thursday, Feb. 6 at 4 p.m., at the Wimberly Library, fifth floor, 777 Glades Road, Boca Raton campus. The lecture will be presented by professor Morten Schltter of the University of Iowa. One hundred years ago, two expeditions crossed the Silk Road in western China in search of treasure. These expeditions were headed by Sir Aurel Stein of England and Paul Pelliot of France. At an oasis called Dunhuang, they made a fantastic discovery. Hidden in the secret chamber of a Buddhist cave was a lost library from 1,000 years ago. Today, scholars are still discovery. At the FAU lecture, Schltter will discuss a chapter from his current all Zen texts, the Platform Sutra. The version of the sutra found in Dunhuang describes a ritual for the bestowal of formless precepts. These precepts are the natural moral compass that exists in all of us. In later editions of the sutra, the ritual side of this concept begins to be downplayed. Why this happens, and what this means for our of Schltters fascinating lecture. In addition to the lecture, there will be a special exhibit of rare books from FAU Special Collections. Did you know that the famous Civil War General Ulysses S. Grant, who is remembered on the U.S. $50 bill, went to China and met with members of the imperial family? A rare copy of this 19th century book display before and after the lecture. This book and others from FAUs rare book collection represent a time capsule of what Stein and Pelliot would have read before embarking on their adventures on the Silk Road in 1901.COMMUNITY NEWS FAU Lecture on Zen and the Art of Formless Precepts Mentoring Program Names Bocas Burt Rapaport its 2014 Man of the YearBy Jason Schwartz Tickets are on sale for the KOP Mentoring Networks inaugural awards program to recognize community leader and entrepreneur Burt Rapoport as its 2014 Man of the Year.

8 -Edition 171 EDITORIAL By C. Ron Allen EDITORIALS/LETTERSThe Boca Raton TribuneFounded January 15, 2010 Publisher thousands in our community to observe the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. holiday. It was a weekend punctuated with ecumenical services, banquets, breakfasts, sporting events, marches, walks and a rally. I am sure there were even the usual barbeques. There were the usual speeches at all the events. But as happened with some commemorations of Dr. Kings I Have a Dream speech at the 50th anniversary of the 1963 March on Washington, celebrating the progress our society has made in the area of civil rights can obscure the full measure of Dr. Kings message. I think too often, we lose sight of the fact that Dr. Kings work as a minister and civil rights leader not only promoted the cause of racial equality, but also challenged us to address the prevalence of poverty in our country. While we as residents may not be equipped to solve all of the problems confronting society or the poor, we all have the ability, the responsibility, and might I also add moral obligation to do our part to answer Dr. Kings call to do something for others. Individually and collectively, our efforts can produce positive change. The Martin Luther King, Jr. federal holiday is the only federal holiday observed as a national day of service. It has been called a day on, not a day off. The holiday is past but the need still exists. Right here in our communities there are ample opportunities to lend a hand. There are soup kitchens that have room for a few helpers, mentoring programs that need caring volunteers, neighborhood parks that need cleaning, sports teams needing coaches and most of all struggling civic and non-profit organizations that need funds. I was left with mixed emotions by the level of participation at the Dr. King observances in our local cities this year. While I must say there was much better participation this year than in previous years. Perhaps the credit is due to the beautiful South Florida weather that we were blessed with this year. Lets take for example the ecumenical service in Delray Beach on Sunday evening. Except for the three members of the clergy who were part of the organizing committee, there were less than five other clergy members present. Now with more than 80 houses on worships in Delray Beach most of them serving people of color that was dismal especially since the weekend was set aside to honor to efforts of a former member of the clergy. Boca Raton also has its share of worship houses. Yet none was represented at this service. Perhaps they were not invited, maybe they chose not to venture across that city limits unless its to go to work, shopping or for entertainment. Whatever the reason was, this has to change. There needs to be a tri-city effort, spearheaded by the clergy to work on making next years event a banner year. To follow the Rev. Kings philosophy, if our people are going to move ahead, they need to be led by the clergy. Mondays observances gave me hope though. The annual breakfast at the Delray Beach Golf Club was once again the highlight of the weekend. The standing roomonly program was comprised of all segments of the community. And those who did not care to be up that early took park in the walk later that day. But what was disturbing to me was once the walkers arrived at the Pompey Park Community Center, for the culmination program. The clear message they sent was that, Oh well, I did my part by walking 30 minutes. To that I reply, Dr. King marched miles so we all can share today. The least you could have done was to spend another 30 minutes inside to hear the beautiful program, which included a hearty message by the Mayor Cary Glickstein and a poignant address by Caleb Charles. Depending on how we approach it, this holiday has the potential to is an invitation to look inward and assess our lives. Are we using our gifts to perpetuate goodness? Are we practicing agape, or spiritual love, to live courageously? Dr. Kings dream is still the universalizing impulse of compassion. The remembrance of Dr. King provides us a radical way of moving through crisis and into unbound freedom where we will be redeemed through our resistance to tragedy. As our brother said, unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word. We still have time to for next year. I will start by inviting at least five people to the local Weve Made Progress, Still Theres More Work to be Done Business C.E.OC.O.O.

Edition 1719for news 24/7 go to 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. Keep a Good Conversation Going!Humans are social creatures and, as such, have the opportunity of human interaction with other people. By this means one can impart something good to others the mutual sharing of ideas, humor, information, and much more! In most instances, its always great to talk, on account of the countless benefits which this activity always affords to those involved in such exchanges. Yet, or several. A person may talk in the direction of another without being engaged in real conversation. The topic needs to be of common interest to those involved in conversation. In life, even for the most customary activities, one is expected to follow certain procedures, even rules, if the best results are to be experienced. This is most true with conversations as it is with matters of even greater significance! In my title above, I allude to a good conversation. That means that there also exist bad conversations those which dont get off the ground, or others which get nowhere, even if started. A conversation should never be a platform for venting personal frustrations, and especially the negativity one may have for the other, engaged in the same exchange. Obviously, there may often be unpalatable issues which need to be addressed, and the setting for such can and should purpose. In general, however, a conversation can and should be a pleasant activity, with positive goals pre-established, especially a sound impact which the life of each participant should gain. Animosity, usually, accomplishes more animosity. And when such is the case, the conversation will not achieve anything of value; it must as well stop! The same can be said about arguing. Although this function has its place, a conversation will not be pleasant when that becomes its primary aim. People who are eager to find reasons to argue about anything, have failed to find more substantive issues to discuss! Develop sound conversation techniques and procedures, and employ them to the best of your ability, for the sake of impacting another life and keeping your own from being unnecessarily affected by the unpleasantness of widely divergent points of view! Suggestion boxes at companies are being replaced by online ideasubmission systems, according to the Wall Street Journal, a respected business periodical. These systems not only receive ideas for changes and new initiatives, but also allow employees the opportunity to comment and vote on suggestions from other staff members. PricewaterhouseCoopers launched an idea-management website that generated 3,300 new ideas. Although the consulting firm has implemented only 140 of those ideas to date, the ones they did put into use have saved the company hundreds of thousands of dollars. The irony is that too often executives call upon outsiders to evaluate business practices, systems and a variety of other factors that affect revenues and expenses, but fail to consider the insiders that could have the greatest insight. Employees usually know company products and processes better than consultants, since they work with them every day, yet many organizations never ask their staffs for ideas. Years ago, manufacturers implemented quality circles, through which the employees most affected by production decisions would have input into actions taken and what conclusions were reached. In many cases employee advisory groups contributed significantly to greater efficiency and economy. It might not be necessary to create quality circles for your organization, but some purposeful way of soliciting and responding to staff input on important organizational and management strategies could pay great dividends. There is a saying that sometimes it is hard to distinguish the forest from the trees, but it might be wise to periodically consult with those that are most familiar with the trees. The Bible has much to say about this approach to business: Do not be too proud to consult with others. Some executives seem to take the attitude that since they are in leadership positions, they should be expected to have all the answers. There is no rule that says that, and wise leaders encourage staff people to offer their perspectives. Proverbs 12:15 teaches, The way of a fool seems right to him, but a wise man listens to advice. Be receptive to views from a variety of reliable sources. There are many ways of soliciting valued counsel regarding business plans and key decisions, ranging from idea-submission systems to employee and team meetings. By taking full advantage of people and ideas available, the likelihood of success is multiplied. Plans fail for lack of counsel, but with many advisers they succeed(Proverbs 15:22). Value the resources available within your own staff. Often the thinking of consultants is given greater weight because of their However, good stewardship requires proper utilization of the personnel we have within our companies, including involving their insights in critical decisions and practices.

PAGE 13 Edition 171B1Section B The Boca Raton Tribune B Section B The Aftermath of EvilENTERTAINMENTLets Go on Vacation!TONYS TIPS See page B3 See page B2See Parade and Gain UnderstandingBy: Skip SheffieldIt sounds like a rather dubious accused of a heinous murder. Same man is exonerated of charges, yet falls victim to bigoted vigilantes. Surprise, The Parade has its lovely and loving moments and is always riveting entertainment. Slow Burn Theatre presents this littleknown 1998 Tony Award-winning Broadway musical through Feb. 9 at West Boca Raton High School Auditorium. The book, by Alfred Uhry and Jason Robert Brown, is based on the true-life incident that rocked Atlanta in 1913. A man named Leo Frank, who managed a pencil factory, was accused of raping and murdering one of his employees, a girl named of her 14th birthday. Thanks to an over zealous, politically ambitious prosecutor named Hugh Dorsey and an anti-Semitic newspaper writer named Tom Watson, the proudly Jewish Leo Frank was railroaded into a guilty verdict. That was not the end of the misfortune that befell Leo Frank, as playwright Alfred Uhry and composer Jason Robert Brown meticulously recount in words and music. The Parade ran on Broadway, but courageous regional theater companies such as Slow Burn have breathed new life into the show. The Parade is indeed a show, directed and choreographed with compassion and understanding by Patrick Fitzwater, with precise musical accompaniment of challenging songs by Manny Schvartzman, lighting by Lance Blank, sets by Sean McClelland and costumes by Rick Pena. Equity professional Tom Anello stars as Leo Frank, and in her role Ann Marie Olson plays his loyal wife Lucille. The mood is set with the Prologue: The Old Red Hills of Home. The parade of the title is to honor Confederate soldiers. These folks are proud of their rebel heritage, and they dont much cotton to Jew boys from New York City like Leo Frank. Though Lucille is also Jewish, she is a daughter of the South. Despite her best diplomatic efforts she cannot overcome the blind bigotry and hatred of Southerners still bitter about losing the Civil War. Though the plot is dire, there are rays of light and hope in some of the tender ballads sung beautifully by Leo and Lucille and the marvelous Slow Burn chorus. Slow Burn co-artistic director Matthew Korinko plays the role of despicable villain Hugh Dorsey. He does not make him a cardboard villain, but himself a victim of blind ambition. Even more villainous is hatemongering writer Tom Watson, played by Rick Pena doing triple duty. The always entertaining Jerel Brown also does triple duty in three widely contrasting roles. The good news about the Leo Frank-Mary Phagan tragedy is that it led to the founding of the Jewish Anti-Defamation League. The local ADL in fact held a talk-back after the first Sunday matinee. Though it is dark and challenging, The Parade is educational and provocative. It is yet another amazing show done by one of most daring, resourceful theater companies in South Florida. Tickets are $40 adults, $35 seniors and $25 students. Call 866811-4111.

PAGE 14 B2 Edition 171 Section B Entertainment Skip Sheffield By Skip SheffieldAftermath is set in 2000, but the story, inspired by Jan Gross Neighbors, is firmly rooted in the Holocaust of World War II. More than any other country, Poland was affected by the Nazi persecution of Jews. There once were 3 million Jews in Poland. A large number of those were part of the 6 million or more souls lost to the Holocaust. Co-written and directed by Wladyslaw Pasikowski in 2012, Aftermath tells the back story of 120 of those souls in a small Polish town. Pasikowski fashions the story as a mystery-thriller centered on brothers Franciszek (Ireneusz Kalina. Franciszek had left the town and fled to America 20 years ago, after the death of his father. Jozef remained in Poland, tending the family farm. The film begins with the return of Franciszek to his home town to investigate strange circumstances involving his brother. Shortly after disembarking the bus, Franciszeks luggage is stolen. It is a sign of more trouble to come. Josef is in trouble with local authorities for destroying a road. The reason Josef ripped off the asphalt was that he discovered the roads foundation was made with tombstones from a now-vanished Jewish cemetery. Though Josef is a devout Catholic, his moral outrage is such that he has taken it upon himself to save and restore the tombstones and recreate the cemetery. This does not set well with the villagers. Accidents begin to happen to the Kalina brothers. When it comes time to harvest the wheat the communitys harvester is mysteriously broken. When the brothers decided to harvest the wheat the old-fashioned way, by hand, the field catches fire. As the hostility of the villagers rises, so does the animosity between the two brothers. If it werent for the towns kindly, tolerant older priest (Jerzy Radziwilowiez) the Kalina brothers would have no friends at all. The truth is the town holds a terrible secret, and Jozefs mission to make reparations to murdered Jews threatens to expose that secret. Aftermath is quite controversial in Poland and banned outright in some places because it is perceived as antiPolish. The truth of the matter is the Nazis were not the only villains in the Holocaust. They were aided and abetted by sympathizers and people fearful for their own self-preservation. An evil as monstrous as the Holocaust was, it tainted all around it. Rather than being anti-Polish, this film screams Never again! Three stars Fitness Life Randy FineAre You Eating the Food or the Sauce?Sauces have been used for centuries to make unpalatable food tasty. The French while under siege would use them to make rotten meat edible. That is why the French are so good at making delicious sauces. They had lots of practice. If you cannot eat a hamburger and French fries without ketchup and mustard, than are you really eating the sauces or the entree? If I do not have the two sauces, I do not want the entre. So for me, all I have to do is ration the sauce and the entre goes with it. How about pasta? Can you eat it with nothing not even butter on it? How about your favorite salad, can you eat it without dressing? Just reduce the sauce and see what happens to your appetite. If you do this you will more than likely reduce your portion size. You will also find many flavors that you never noticed as the sauces were covering them up as they were supposed to. Think about what you are putting on your food. Do you typically put a lot of sauce on steak, or can you eat it with nothing added? Most people eat it with a little salt and pepper. see how it changes things. Most calories come from the dressing or sauces. The more you understand what you are eating and why, the easier it will be to make small changes that have big long term effects. Remember it only takes 100 extra calories a day to gain about 10 pounds a year. So if you reduce you food by 100 calories a day for a year there goes about 10 pounds.

Santaluces High Students Read to Starlight Cove ElementaryBy Vickie Middlebrooks As part of Santaluces Highs celebration of Literacy Week, seven male cadets from the JROTC and Criminal Justice Academies volunteered to read to elementary students to help reinforce the importance of reading.

The Boca Raton Tribune By Quezia Salgado The Shoe Industry is made up of hundreds of manufacturers, wholesalers, and retailers. Among them, BBC International stands out as a prominent footwear sourcing agent, representing the largest providers and specialty brands in the world, for more than 30 years. This long history of success is undoubtedly due to the hard work and efforts of BBCs incredible team, but none of it would have been possible without the boldness of its CEO and founder Robert B. Campbell. On a recent interview with Mr. Campbell, the Boca Tribune was able to find out a bit more about this incredible man, who has made such a difference in the community. As a child, growing up in Pittsburgh with his mother and three sisters, the idea of owning a multi-million dollar company, was far from Roberts mind. For six years, they lived in the attic of his grandmothers house, while his mother worked at his grandpas bakery the same bakery where Robert started working at the age of 9. My mother did nothing but work hard; she was amazing and taught us all about respect and ethics, and raised us in a good Christian family. Despite their humble beginnings, Robert says his family never knew the word poor; they never thought of themselves as poor, We always knew we were a lucky and happy family. After his mother remarried, Robert and his family moved to Detroit when he was 15 years old. There Mr. Campbell attended Cass Tech High School, which was rated the countrys #1 tech school at the time. At Cass Tech, Robert was involved with music and athletics, playing in the concert band and football team. working part-time at a local Kinney Shoe store, where his career started. Robert made $35 that first week, but his true goal was to make $100, I never had a goal about being rich because I thought I was rich; making $100 a week at 16 years old, I thought that was the greatest thing in the world. Robert was quickly promoted to store manager, and later regional buyer and started traveling all over the States doing special buys for Kinney. By 1963 Bob became a buyer for F.W. Woolworth, which was Kinneys parent company at the time; there he worked for 9 years, traveling the world as the Developing Director of Footwear. The bureaucracy of big companies became too stressful for Robert, so in 1975 he founded BBC International. He started by himself, with only one secretary, and a few good people who were a great help in encouraging Bob, and are considered mentors to him. One of those was Cam Anderson founder of Footlocker I worked directly with him in Chicago and every time I needed help with anything he was there for me. Another one of Bobs mentors was Harvey Levy, from Pagoda International, he was my competitor, but he said: If you need any help, let me know. Although Robert never had a life plan he always knew that if he focused on something and worked hard at it, he would be successful: My only ambition was to work hard, get ahead, and I knew it would pay that; I was never afraid of failure. This same confidence is what makes Mr. Campbell such an important part of the Boca community. For many years, he has been involved in several charities and organizations, among which is the Boca Historical Society and Museum the official organizer of the Bacchanal Wine & Food Festival. Robert has attended the festival every year since its inception, 12 years ago, and for 2014 he was named Honorary Chair of the event, I think the Bacchanal does fabulous things for the town, and what I like most is that its a local event, it stays within the community. Those interested in attending the Bacchanal have to go through the Boca Historical Society to purchase tickets, and should hurry because this years promises to be one for the memories. With such a record of achievements, not to mention all the awards received for his charity contributions, Robert Campbells example is one worth imitating. From a young kid working at a bakery, to multi-millionaire business owner, Roberts life is a demonstration of what someone can accomplish if they work hard and remain humble and grateful. His advice to young entrepreneurs is simply: Work hard, have a goal, and dont complain! At 76 years old, Mr. Campbells energy and passion for his work remain unchanged; he is undoubtedly a living legend, whose legacy will live on for years to come.

Send your information to our mailing address at: Boca Raton Tribune, PO Box 970593, Boca Raton, FL 33497 When in RomeStart a Production CompanyBy: Quezia Salgado Nearly everyone has had at some point in life a History teacher who showed educational videos in class, in an attempt to keep students the topic was the fall of the Roman Empire, or the colonization of the Americas, about 5 minutes into the video students could hardly keep their eyes open, and falling asleep was only natural. The truth is, while those videos contain extremely important information, the style in which the content is presented is far from entertaining. For the most part, educational television shows lack the element of entertainment, and viewers resort to the banality of reality shows. Fortunately, all of that is about to change, thanks to the amazing team of professionals at 3 Amici Studios in Boca Raton. 3 Amici, (Italian for Friend), is an international production company, capable of creating anything from pre to post production, including film, television, theater, industrial, etc., in over 40 different languages. The way the company came together is nothing short of serendipitous. While on a family trip to Italy, Jonathan Resnick, the companys CEO, had the misfortune of having their private tour of the Coliseum cancelled at the last minute. Luckily the tour company made a phone call to Tom Shaker, an artist/professor who happened to be available to give a tour that day. Tom and Jonathan met in a very non-conventional way, He was leaning against the wall, wearing his usual shorts and T-shirt outfit, and smoking a big stogie says Jonathan of his first impression. Needless to say, after about five minutes of talking, the two hit it off, realizing they had many things in common, including their love of movies. Tom has been a producer and performer for more than four decades, and he prides himself as an Edu-tainer, or someone who educates while entertaining. After what turned out to be the most incredible 4-hour tour of the Resnicks lives, Tom had a proposition, Buy me a really nice cigar and Ill give you another four hours of the rest of Rome. They accepted and had a terrific time taking in Toms extraordinary knowledge of the city and the film business. All the while, Jonathan was thinking to himself: If I had such a great experience today, why wouldnt other people want this? And the answer to his question is 3 Amici Production Studios. With an avid interest in history, art, and entertainment, Jonathan realized that much of what is on television is not fulfilling, so he decided to bring in Toms knowledge and talent and create a production company that can offer a product that combines both elements: education and entertainment. When it comes to the style of the shows produced by 3 Amici, the group focuses on merging talent, knowledge and quality. According to Tom The truth is, everyone likes to learn, but no one wants to be taught. With that in mind, as the companys artistic director, Tom came up with several ideas for TV shows that inform viewers in a fun way. Among says there are officially 360 churches in the city of Rome alone, so Rome angle. Each episode covers a specific church and its neighborhood, and is split into four groups: the facts, the fantasy, the faith and the fun. With 15 episodes ready to go, negotiations are underway to broadcast the series. Another exciting series currently in production is Vino Veritas (Latin for In wine there is truth), a half hour show split into three sections which include visits to a vineyard, a restaurant or spa, and someones home. The shows produced by 3 Amici deal with not only history and culture, but also with themes that are a part of everyones life, which is the case with Frequent-Sea Electronics, a boat show hosted by Jonathan Weisser, a boat electronics expert. In Frequent-Sea, the audience can take a look at boating in South Florida through the eyes of J.W., and tag along with him as he fixes everything from a 25-foot boat in someones backyard, to a Russian millionaires yacht. The success experienced by 3 Amici in their first year of life is due to not only Toms talent and Jonathans entrepreneurial boldness, but also to the team as a whole. A production company cant go anywhere without a business manager, and thats where Vickie Sanderson comes in. As 3 Amicis CFO, Vickie runs all the financials to make sure everyone is always reason for the companys success is the hard work of its Director of Communications, Lee Zoretic, and Producer/Editor, Jordan Ackerman. Both Lee and Jordan are graduates of Lynn University, and a great addition to the team as local young talents. 3 Amicis passion for knowledge, and commitment to offering the public a product of the best quality, makes them one of the most promising production companies today. Each member agrees that the key to all they do is team work and communication, and as Vickie said: Weve only been together for one year, and what weve accomplished in this time is absolutely amazing, and thats because we treat it as a team effort. This is a unique group of people who will reach for the stars without reservations, and who are all truly proud of what they do. There is no telling what 3 Amici can or cant do, and audiences all over the world wont have to wait much longer to witness the masterpieces created by this phenomenal team.

The last couple of weeks we have been discussing how to properly prepare for one of the biggest financial decisions you will ever makepurchasing a home! After you have created your budget you are going to want to begin the next step STEP 5: IMPLEMENTING A RECORD KEEPING SYSTEM: The reason for analyzing and planning your future spending is to help you take control of your spending habits. In order to track your finances you must keep record of it. Keep all receipts, both cash and credit, in a file or pocket folder and invest in a small filing cabinet to stay organized. STEP 6: ANALYZING SPENDING RECORDS AND ADJUSTING ALONG THE WAY: This is where you compare actual spending versus estimated spending and figure out where the differences are so you can make the necessary not weekly basis so you can stay on target. These last 2 steps are an ongoing process. Always keep in mind you want to spend less than you make. When you have developed a habit of saving money and you get some budgeting experience under your belt, it is then you are able to focus on saving money to buy your new home. There are 2 different types of costs, one-time costs and long-term costs associated with home ownership. First it is important to get the skills of creating and mastering your budget then we will tackle those different costs. I would like to end this series with 2 of my favorite quotes when it comes to budgeting Luke 14:28-30 Suppose one of you wants to build a tower. Will he not first sit down and estimate the cost to see if he has enough money to complete it? For if he lays the foundation and is not able to finish it, everyone who sees it will ridicule him, saying, `This fellow began to build and was not able to finish. (NIV Bible) The amount of money you have has got nothing to do with what you earn. People earning a million dollars a year can have no money and people earning $35,000 a year can be quite well off. Its not what you earn, its what you spend. Paul Clitheroe Just remember No matter what age you are, it is never too late to start budgeting. Stay Tuned Focus on communities in Boca Raton.

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 FAITHBy Robert J. Tamasy DIVORCE FLORIDA STYLEBy Mike Gora We sometimes hear people make this statement: Life is a marathon, not a sprint. And theres much truth to that. Many people can look good for a short distance. In fact, in a sprint even a slower person might take the lead for a step or two. But a successful life is not measured in minutes or hours, days or even weeks, but in years. A good start does not guarantee a good finish. However, comparing life to a marathon falls short in one respect. In a marathon, runners compete alone. There might be people along the course to cheer and encourage, and perhaps volunteers offering water or other refreshment. But for the most part, marathon runners engage in a solitary pursuit perseverance, reaching the finish linealone. In real life, however, no one reaches goals or achieves success on their own. Especially the most successful people. Celebrated executives, accomplished physicians, notable inventors, the most famous athletes and entertainers might have had visions and dreams, and worked hard to refine their skills and talents, but they all needed help along the way. Years ago, one of the most popular American TV shows was The Lone Ranger. It featured a lone crusader against crime, determined to right what was wrong did have a faithful companion named Tonto, but the Lone Ranger would suddenly ride into a town, take on the criminals and overcome them, even saying good-bye. The towns citizens would look at each other and ask, Who was that masked man? History teaches that trying to succeed as a lone ranger in the business and professional world is a recipe for failure, even disaster. We all need accountability, administrative support, encouragement, help from people with experience and expertise different from ours to reach our about this. For example: Strength in numbers. Teamwork and mutual support are hallmarks for success in any endeavor. Two are better than on, because they have a good return for their work. If one falls down, his friend can help him up. But pity the man who falls and has no one to help him up!... A cord of three strands is not quickly broken (Ecclesiastes 4:9-12). And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds (Hebrews 10:24-25). Sharpening of focus. Just as the edges of two knives can be sharpened by being rubbed together, people can sharpen one another as they also rub against each other as they work together, often resulting in creative and constructive friction. As iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another (Proverbs 27:17). Diversity in capabilities. We each have unique abilities and talents, and by merging them and working together, we can accomplish far more than we ever could working alone. There are different kinds of gifts, but the same Spirit. There are different kinds of service, but the same Lord. There are different kinds of working, but the same God works all of them in all men (1 Corinthians 12:4).Robert J.

I was visiting with my trust and estate lawyer last week, and asked him whether, as a grandparent, I had rights to see my grandchildren, after the childrens parents were divorced. He told me that I had rights under a Florida Statute752.01. I remembered that you wrote a column some time ago in which you said that there were no longer grandparent visiting rights in Florida. My son and his wife divorce some time ago. My son moved to Los Angeles, my daughter-in-law remained here with the children. We used to see the kids all the time. Now she wont permit it. Do grandparents have visitation rights under 752.01, or not? A. In 1996 the Florida Supreme Court declared that Florida Statute 752.01 was unconstitutional on its face, and refused to enforce it under facts similar to yours. In reaching this conclusion the Court cited the United States Supreme Courts ruling that such laws, granting grand parents legal rights to their grandchildren, constitute state interference with parental rights granted under the 14th amendment to the United States Constitution, and a violation of the rights of privacy found in the Florida Constitution. Other Florida statutes provide remedies to grandparents and others in the event that the conduct of the childrens natural parents are so damaging that the children are placed in actual danger. That process can lead to termination of parental rights and the substitution of a guardian for the children and their property. The guardian might or might not be a grandparent. A Grandparent, such as you, who tries to bring an action at this time for visitation rights under the long dead 752.01, will be wasting their emotional capital as well as their money. You would probably have to pay the fees of the mothers attorney. In addition, if you attempt to communicate with the child or the remaining parent you may be sues for damages, an No Job For 'The Lone Ranger'

Raickovics Double-Double Cant Lift Mens Basketball over Saint LeoBy: Pedro Heizer Looks as if there will be a press conference in Miami next week after all. According to Patricia Mazzei of the Miami Herald, Miami-Dade Mayor Carlos Gimenez confirmed the Wednesday press conference in which soccer superstar David Commissioner Don Garber will be in attendance as they rally support for a privately funded stadium. The Miami-Dade County mayor's office says negotiations began this week with David Beckham's group, Miami Beckham League Soccer stadium site in Miami. Earlier this month, Commissioner Garber acknowledged Miami's bid but also stated the league would only return to Miami if the situation was ideal. "There's a lot of work that needs to happen," Garber said. "We can't go to Miami without the right stadium solution. David understands that. The city understands that. That's an indisputable fact. We can't have different rules in Miami than we have in any other city. We want to do as much as we can to work with David and Simon Fuller to get something done as quickly as we can." On Tuesday, representatives from Miami Beckham United ran down a list of over 30 possible sites for a soccerspecific stadium in the region in a meeting that lasted over three hours with Mayor Gimenez. Upon the end of the meeting, Mayor Gimenez said they had narrowed it down to five "viable" sites for the potential soccer stadium, with the county-owned land at PortMiami still the groups top choice for a stadium. Beckhams group has promised that the stadium will be 100 percent privately funded, and Gimenez said in November that Dade County could lease county-owned land at the PortMiami site in Biscayne Bay to team owners, who would then build a stadium themselves. Despite the set press conference for next Wednesday, it must be noted that the presser could be nothing more than a "What you must do for MLS to return" message. Garber and MLS officials have done similar press conferences in New York and Orlando before those cites were awarded teams.David Beckham Set to Address Media in Press Conference on Wednesday

It was a beautiful South Florida afternoon and thousands came out for Lynn Universitys successful Seventh Annual Family Fun Day. This nationally-recognized community engagement event brought over 2,000 families on to campus for a free day filled with obstacle courses, bounce houses, rock climbing walls, face painting, food trucks and soccer and lacrosse camps. Wow, what a fantastic day this was, said Alex Perez, Family Fun Day organizer and Director of Marketing and Corporate Relations for Lynn University. Families were coming from all over Palm Beach and Broward Counties for this great event. It is so nice to get our local businesses exposure and give a hassle-free day to families to have fun and relax at. Family Fun Day once again featured the Mini Knights Challenge Fun Run where kids ran a quarter-mile obstacle course and received a medal and free T-shirt upon completion. Lynns student-athlete population came out in full force to support, signing autographs, assisting at all the game stations and even helping out in personal clinics. New to Family Fun Day was the inaugural lacrosse clinic, where over 100 kids came out to learn the fundamentals of the newest college sport in South Florida. Lynns soccer teams followed with its annual clinic for boys and girls of all ages. In addition to bounce houses and clinics, there were special appearances by Ronald McDonald, the Florida Panthers, PBS Kids, Boca Raton Police, SWAT and Fire Departments and food trucks. The NCAA recently announced Lynns Family Fun Day as the Division II Community Engagement Award of Excellence winner for the Sunshine State Conference. This award recognizes institutions that successfully build bridges with communities in which they are located. The Lynn University Family Fun Day was created in 2008, in response to the NCAA Division II community engagement initiative. Dr. Rich Luker formulated the idea based on statistics showing that the United States is approximately a 78% service driven economy and there is no longer an economically derived reason for institutions or organizations to get together socially.
