Boca Police Safety Tip

Q:  I heard that I should keep a copy of the serial number of my new flat screen television. Is this true? A:  Yes, in fact you should record the serial number to all of your electronics, including televisions, DVD players, game consoles (Wii, PlayStation, etc), computers, digital cameras, etc.  If an item with a serial number is stolen, police can enter the item’s serial number into a database.  If the item is taken to a pawnbroker, the broker is required by law to check the stolen article database.  Police have recovered thousands of stolen items because owners kept the serial numbers on record in a safe place. Crime and safety questions are answered by officers from the Crime Prevention Unit. For more information, visit  www. BocaPolice.com.

Gov. Scott Tells Boca High Audience that 9/11 Attack on NYC was “‘Just Devastating”

By Dale M. King BOCA RATON – The man who is currently governor of Florida was a businessman 11 years ago, and just happened to be in New York City on the morning of Sept. 11, 2001. “I was at a prayer breakfast when the first plane hit. I heard the second crash as I was walking down Park Avenue,” he told an audience during a 9/11 remembrance ceremony Tuesday at Boca Raton Community High School.” “It was just devastating.” Gov. Scott and wife, Ann, were among dignitaries at Tuesday’s solemn ceremony that included hymns, speeches and remembrances. “We had a lot of friends who lost their loves ones in the attack,” said the governor who was living in Connecticut at the time. Looking out over the audience and the auditorium lived with

members of the Naval Junior ROTC squad, he said, “It’s wonderful that our country holds remembrances like this.” Scott said his father served in the 82nd Airborne Division during World War II. He recalled that seven Florida residents died in the 9/11 attacks, and 334 Floridians have died in the ensuing wars. The governor wasn’t the only one with memories of New York on that horrible day. NJROTC Cadet Olivia Kerwin said her family lived in Manhattan at the time. She said her mother worked in Tower 1, but the morning of the attack, she said, mom was fearful that something might happen, so she met with her boss in another building. Cadet Kerwin said he mother “saw the plane flying into Tower 1” where she would have been working. The cadet said her father, who worked for the

NYC Sanitation Department, spent nine months cleaning Ground Zero, and must return even nor for health checkups for toxic residue from the debris. Cadet Commander Julianne Nor-

NJROTC Color Guard during 9/11 ceremony dhagen offered opening and closing remarks at the hour-long ceremony. The Boca High Advanced Chorus sang the National Anthem and a hymn to America. Elgin Davis played “Taps” before the close of the ceremony.

Thousands Celebrated At Downtown Boca’s Friday Night Live! ian favorites as participating businesses extended hours for exploring and enjoying the destination, from Mizner Park to Royal Palm Place, including the signature collection of shops and boutiques, restaurants and galleries.  Downtown Boca and the City of Boca Raton hosted the festivities in partnership with the Consulate General of Brazil in Miami, the Palm Beach County Convention & Visitors Bureau, Friday Night LIVE! series presenting sponsor JM Lexus, Banco do Brasil as the evening’s Official Programming Sponsor, plus the Rotary Club of West Boca Raton, Leblon, Café Brasil 88.9 FM, Boca Tribune, Gazeta Brazilian News and Acontece Magazine. During the evening, Boca Raton Mayor Susan Whelchel alongside Deputy Mayor Susan Haynie and Community Redevelopment Agency Chair and Council Member Constance Scott welcomed Ambassador Helio Victor Ramos, Consulate General of Brazil in Miami and presented him with the key to the City of Boca Raton and a proclamation. Following remarks from the Ambassador, both the Star-Spangled Banner and the Brazilian National Anthem were played.  Batuke Samba Funk, a unique collective of musicians from Brazil and

Miami, then took the stage to perform the classic samba/soul sound originating in Rio de Janiero in the late 1960s. The group combined the percussive grooves of Brazilian samba with the funk rhythms of American legends like James Brown and Earth, Wind & Fire. Batuke Samba Funk was founded in 2008 by bassist extraordinaire Diogo Olivera and features a revolving cast of the very finest musicians playing guitars, bass, drums, vocals and Afro-Brazilian percussion. As a signature element of the show, the band erupted into a samba jam session using traditional Brazilian drums as well as recycled objects such as cans, buckets and scrap metal to create a joyous carnival atmosphere.  Rose Max, “South Florida’s favorite Brazilian singer,” followed Batuke Samba Funk with her mesmerizing guitarist Ramatis Moraes. They “fired up” the streetside dance floor with authentic, classic samba music inspired by the nightclubs of Rio de Janiero accompanied by a pulsating band and a lively percussion section. Max’s talent and performance has earned her several Miami New Times “Best of ” awards as well as three Brazilian International Press Awards.

BOCA RATON -- The Pap Corps celebrated Boca Festival Days with Eat to Beat Cancer, a dining event held at Royal Palm Place in Boca Raton. Hundreds of supporters dined at the plaza’s restaurants, which donated a portion of their proceeds to the largest all-volunteer organization in the United States solely dedicated to raising funds for cancer research. The event also marked the 60th birthdays

of both the Pap Corps and the Boca Raton Chamber of Commerce. “We appreciate Royal Palm Place for being our Chamber partner for this event,” said JoAnne Goldberg, president of The Pap Corps. “They were wonderful hosts. We also want to thank Denise Righetti of Investments Limited for all of her hard work, and for securing the very talented Wild Cats Band which provided

the evening’s entertainment. They were outstanding!” “We enjoy participating in these community events because they help us spread the word about our mission. Volunteers are critical to our fundraising success, and we are always looking for opportunities to invite people to get involved. Everyone has been touched by cancer in some way. If you are looking to make a real difference,

The Pap Corps provides many ways for you to do so. “ In the past 60 years, The Pap Corps has donated more than $43 million for research on ALL TYPES of cancer at Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center, the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine.

Letters to the Editor I have never met Boca Raton resident Virginia Williams, but I have spoken many times to her mother, Barbara Einheuser. During the most recent calls, Barbara has been on the verge of tears. Virginia is very ill with a mystery disease that no medical personnel – at least to date – have been able to diagnose. Barbara says Virginia is a 52-year-old single mother of two. She has been fighting illness for the past 17 years, but during the past three years, she has taken what Barbara calls ”a drastic turn for the worse” and is now bedridden. During the last phone call, Barbara said her daughter was in critical condition at Boca Raton Regional Hospital, but it appeared the hospital was going to release her. Barbara was frightened. I’m not a doctor and can’t say whether this was or was not a good thing to do. What I really want to say – or ask – is for help from the community to aid this woman in her hour of trouble. From what Barbara told me, Virginia has always been a vibrant person, despite her previous illnesses. She was “a get up and go person, one of the strongest, most vibrant people I have ever known,” her mother said. Barbara even recalled how Virginia, despite illness and financial troubles, rallied the community to come together and collect money and toys for less fortunate children at the Wayne Barton Center. “She worked so hard and made so many kids happy that Christmas,” said Barbara. “This is not the Virginia that we all know today,” Barbara said sadly. Virginia (nicknamed Gina) has traveled all over the medical spec-

Editorials & Letters

trum in search of help – to Washington, D.C., Germany, the Mayo Clinic, Cleveland Clinic and the University of Miami. “No one has been able to come up with any answers as to what is causing her health to decline,” said Barbara. The only clue, it appears, was a diagnosis of Lyme disease about three years ago. That illness – which may or may not have actually been Lyme disease – seems to have set off the decline in Gina’s health. Barbara said her daughter is in bed 95 percent of the day, suffers chronic bone pain from head to toe, has lost 30 pounds, suffers extreme fatigue along with hair loss, bone loss and chipping and cracking teeth. There are other maladies, but I think this makes the point. Gina can no longer work, Barbara said, and, as such, has no source of income. “She has repeated been denied disability benefits due to lack of a concrete diagnosis,” said Gina’s mom. Due to limited insurance coverage, she no longer has the money to pay for doctors or necessary medication. Mom sees her daughter’s situation as grave, and is calling upon the community to help. “We must support each other in every way possible. Most of us are struggling in our own ways, financially and physically as well. No matter how bad we all may suffer in our lives, it’s important to remember that there is always someone suffering more than we are.” “We have hosted car washes, garage sales and home parties to try to help support her,” said Barbara. But the diagnosis for this mystery disease seems to be the key to a solution. If you can help at all, contact me at dking@ bocatribune.com

It takes imagination to think that Brazil’s Independence Day could create a wonderful celebration for Boca Raton and surrounding communities – but that is exactly what happened on Friday, Sept. 7th at Sanborn Square. As a 20-year resident of Boca, I want to congratulate the voices that proposed and promoted this event and extend praise to the staff of the City of Boca Raton for superb execution. Because the City is working to establish a sister city in Brazil, I hoped to inform more Boca residents about this diverse and amazing country by sharing my own life-changing experience, as told in my novel Until Brazil. Via a booth at the Brazilian Beat event, I had an opportunity to meet many people – longtime Boca residents, Brazilians from South Florida, and visitors from countries such as France and Peru. With a ringside seat from mid-afternoon until closing, I watched young and old, neighbors and visitors, enjoy the diverse activities and entertainment. Many commented on how refreshing it was to have such a lively and fun evening, especially “off season.” This is the first time that I attended one of the Downtown Boca, Friday Night Live events. It will not be the last. Kudos to everyone who made the Brazilian Beat a success; I hope the City has already booked the date for next year.

THOUGHTS FROM THE PUBLISHER By Douglas Heizer

How Do you Approach the Start of a New Day? Sometimes we never know how to start a new day off right. Here is a great column by Robert J. Tamasy on this subject. I thought it was a great column and I just had to share with you! God Bless, Douglas Heizer When you awaken to prepare for another workday – especially a Monday – what is your typical attitude? Are you filled with enthusiasm and anticipation, looking forward to opportunities and challenges the day will present? Or do you experience feelings of frustration or even dread, wishing you could get back into bed, pull up the covers, and forget about going to work?   If you fall on the negative side of this equation, there could be many reasons: Deadlines you face might seem overwhelming; you could be facing serious conflict with superiors or coworkers; you may not be a good match for the work you are asked to perform; or the job you have held for a long time could have grown tedious and routine, causing you to feel bored and uninspired rather than eager and energized.   Other reasons for disliking work might come to mind, but your mind itself could be a primary factor: the attitude you allow yourself to have toward your

work and your workplace. Even though we cannot always change our circumstances, we can choose our attitudes toward our circumstances.  I am not a “power of positive thinking” person – but I am a person who ascribes to positive believing. This is why I like to start each day – sometimes before I get out of bed – by silently repeating a favorite verse from the Bible: “This is the day that the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it” (Psalm 118:24). If I truly believe that, that God has seen fit to give me a new day, filled with opportunity, new experiences and unexpected encounters, I can approach it with optimism and expectation.   Most days never turn out exactly as I have anticipated. A friend I did not expect to hear from gives me a call or sends an email, leading to meaningful interaction. Out of the blue someone contacts me and asks if I would be interested in a new writing or editing project; something totally off my planning grid. I start working on one task but must shift my focus onto something else, and then I realize the original task was not as urgent as I had thought, so I could postpone it for another day.   Nearly six years ago, after successfully coming

through open-heart surgery, I determined to regard each new day as a “gift.” Not one of us has tomorrow guaranteed, but surviving a major event like that has a way of impressing that reality on you. So while I recognize not every day will be enjoyable or easy, if God has given it to me, there must be a good reason – and I can look forward to whatever the day presents.   Here are principles from the Scriptures to consider when embarking on a new day:   Regard each day as an opportunity, not an imposition. As the saying goes, “our days are numbered.” So we should appreciate what we have and make good, wise use of the time give to us. “Teach us to number our days, that we may gain a heart of wisdom” (Psalm 90:12).   Redeem the day before it is lost. The one commodity we all have in common is time. And we cannot save it for use on another day. Once an hour has passed, it is gone forever, so we should consider how to use it for greatest advantage. “Look carefully then how you walk, not as unwise, but as wise, making the best use of the time, for the days are evil” (Ephesians 5:16).  Until next week! 

POSITIVE LIVING By Dr. Synesio Lyra, Jr.

Correcting Your Mistakes It has been said by several authors and public speakers that most problems have within themselves the seeds of their own solution. And this may be true in several instances, if those faced with the problem diligently look for such hints. In a sense, the same may be applicable to certain mistakes one makes. Unless the consequence of a mistake is complete damage, a correction can easily be sought and found, whatever the cost might be! We all make mistakes. Some make them repeatedly. Some are very innocent, while others may be more difficult, or even impossible, to resolve. Whatever be the case, anybody responsible for any mistake should attempt with diligence to correct the situation or condition affected. This thought came to me in a new light, suddenly, when I made a wrong turn while driving northward.

I knew exactly where I needed to go. Nevertheless, instead of going a few extra miles in the correct direction, I mistakenly turned right, proceeding toward the east. As soon as I realized I had made that mistake, I could’ve quickly made a U-turn. However, my thinking reminded me that I could still proceed that way and, eventually, take the opportunity of getting into other streets which would bring me to my planned destination without any problem! That was simple and easy; the mistake was not that significant. Yet, that simple experience brought to mind the reminder that any mistake is always worthy of correction. Especially the major ones should not be perpetuated; a solution is always possible. In all circumstances a mistake committed should be rectified by prompt, honest actions! Nothing is ever solved when kept hidden, be it un-

der a rug or elsewhere. Silence, which can be golden in many circumstances, is never the answer to such plight. Ignoring a mistake will never eliminate its reality and the consequences it inevitably carries. Confessing an error, openly acknowledging a mistake, adds urgency to the situation. It aids in its resolution far more than any attempt at concealing or ignoring it. Courageously admitting to it, and seeking aid from others in its correction, brings the desired results, not to mention the personal advantages and a greater sense of peace to the one who acted honestly in this regard! There’s no need to fix what is not broken, but what requires appropriate action needs to be tackled, the sooner, the better, for the benefit of the one who made the mistake and for the sake of others who may have faced any disadvantage on account of miscalculations which led to such error!

FAU 2012 Enrollment Tops 30,000

Record Student Population Largest in FAU’s History

BOCA RATON – Florida Atlantic University has the largest enrollment in its history, exceeding 30,000 students for

the fall 2012 semester. “This record-breaking fall enrollment provides strong evidence that students of all ages are recognizing the extraordinary value and experience that Florida Atlantic University has to offer them,” said FAU President Mary Jane Saunders. “We welcome them all and assure them that their success will always be FAU’s top priority.” Saunders, along with FAU’s Board of Trustees, has strengthened the university’s ties with business and industry, directly benefitting FAU’s private sector partnerships and supporting regional economic development. With an annual economic impact of $6.3 billion, FAU is

Suspect Robs Fifth Third Bank in Boca Sept. 11 BOCA RATON – Boca Raton Police are searching for a bald, middle-aged man who allegedly robbed the Fifth Third Bank at 120 East Palmetto Park Road just after 12:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 11. The male suspect entered the bank through the main entrance, carrying a folder and approached a teller, police said. The report said he demanded the money in the drawer and threatened to set off a bomb if he didn’t get enough. The teller gave the suspect an undetermined amount of cash and he left without incident, said police. The suspect was seen running westbound along the front of the bank. No bomb was found. The suspect is described as a white male in his 40’s, approximately 5’5” tall with an average build. He is bald, clean shaven, wearing glasses, a grayish colored polo shirt and jeans.

BOCA RATON -- The Adam Hasner for US House campaign has released the names of its Democrats for Adam Coalition Leadership Team. The Democrats for Adam Coalition is made up of former local elected officials, business leaders and community activists who believe Adam has the solutions for fixing Washington and getting the economy back on track regardless of party affiliation.  The Coalition will provide outreach efforts throughout Broward and Palm Beach counties in this highly competitive district. Former Fort Lauderdale Mayor Jim Naugle, co-chair of the Coalition, said, “I have never been afraid to shake things up and neither is Adam.  Now more than ever we need to send folks to Washington who will take on the status quo and get the job done, and it is clear to me Adam is the right guy for the job.”  “As a lifelong Democrat, I don’t always agree with Adam Hasner on every issue.  But on the issues that matter most in this election jobs and the economy - Adam is the only smart choice,” Democrats for Adam Co-Chair, Bobra Bush said.  “I know both Adam and Lois Frankel, but as a small business owner and job-creator, I know Adam is the only one who understands what we need to do to get our economy back on track.  I have watched Adam represent our community in the state legislature for years and he could always be counted on to do the right thing.  I’m supporting Adam and I hope other Democrats will join me in sending him to Washington.” Members of the Democrats for Adam Co-

Top Brazilian Group Harmonia do Samba Plays Pompano Beach

Brazilian musical group Harmonia do Samba

By Skip Sheffield It is hard not to notice the growing number of Brazilians and their influence in South Florida. In some neighborhoods, Portuguese is heard more often than Spanish or English, especially in West Boca Raton, where there is a Brazilian church, Brazilian restaurants and even a Brazilian motorcycle club. Mauro Santos has been promoting things Brazilian in South Florida for 17 years, including a magazine, “Tititi,” and a Brazilian Film Festival, which just had its 16thanniversary. Santos and his partner Carlos Salles through a group called Brazilian Party Productions are hosting the popular Brazilian musical party group

Boca Life & Arts

Harmonia do Samba in concert at 9 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 22 at the Cinema Club, 3251 N. Federal Highway, Pompano Beach. The concert is part of Harmonia do Samba’s third national tour of the USA. “We first had them at the grand opening of the Cinema Club,” reveals Santos. “They will be playing Boston, New York City and San Francisco. Boston has the highest number of Brazilians. South Florida is in second place and growing.” It is estimated there are more than 300,000 Brazilians in South Florida alone, and well over a million nationwide. Harmonia do Samba was formed

in 1993 in Salvador, Bahia Brazil. The group has recorded 12 CDs and three DVDs, sold more than 4 million albums and it performs around 120 concerts worldwide. The group is fronted by Alexandre Xanddy, who is famous for his improvisational skills. Brazil celebrated its 190th Independence Day on Sept. 7. There was a large public party with free entertainment at Sanborn Park in downtown Boca Raton. One person manning a booth there was none other than Boca Raton Tribune Publisher Douglas Heizer, who arrived with his family from Rio de Janeiro more than ten years ago. “There used to be more Brazilians in Pompano. Now West Boca has one

www.bocaratontribune.com

of the largest populations,” he said. “There are quite a few super-rich Brazilians who fly their jets into Boca Raton Airport. South Florida is relatively much cheaper than Brazil. That is one of the reasons people keep coming here. A two-bedroom apartment in Rio costs as much as a four-bedroom house in Boca.” General admission tickets for Harmonia do Samba are $55. VIP tickets are $65-$85. Tickets are available at Picanha Brazil, 22797 State Road 7, West Boca Raton, Christine & Company Hair Salon, 4400 W. Hillsboro Blvd. and several other locations.

Boca Raton Museum of Art to Host “Art of Video Games” Exhibit

BOCA RATON -- The Boca Raton Museum of Art will be the first museum in the nation to host the Smithsonian American Art Museum’s groundbreaking exhibition, The Art of Video Games, following its enormously successful presentation in Washington, D.C. Running from October 24, 2012 through January 13, 2013, the Boca Raton exhibition, presented by FMSbonds, Inc., explores the 40-year evolution of video games as an artistic medium, focusing on striking graphics, creative storytelling and player interactivity. During its stay in South Florida, the Boca

Raton Museum of Art will offer a variety of associated programs and educational opportunities for visitors of all ages and interests. The exhibit will highlight some of the best games for 20 gaming systems ranging from the Atari VCS to the Playstation 3. It will feature 80 video games presented through still images and video footage. In addition, the galleries include video interviews with developers and artists, historic game consoles and large prints of in-game screen shots. Five featured games, one from each era, will be available in the exhibition galleries for visitors to play for a few minutes

to gain some feel for interactivity. The playable games – Pac-Man, Super Mario Brothers, The Secret of Monkey Island, Myst and Flower – will demonstrate how players interact with the virtual worlds, highlighting innovative new techniques that set the standard for many subsequent games. The Art of Video Games explores the legacy of video games as a medium for artistic expression. Curated by Chris Melissinos, former chief evangelist and chief gaming officer for Sun Microsystems and founder of PastPixels, the exhibition will give viewers an opportunity to explore the evolution of video games since they were first introduced 40 years ago. The Art of Video Games focuses on the interplay of graphics, technol-

ogy, and storytelling. “Video games are a prevalent and increasingly expressive medium within modern society,” said Melissinos. “In the 40 years since the introduction of the first home video game, the field has attracted exceptional artistic talent. Video games, which include classic components of art, offer designers a previously unprecedented method of communicating with and engaging audiences by including a new element, the player, who completes the vivid, experiential art form by personally interacting with the game elements.” The Art of Video Games is organized by the Smithsonian American Art Museum with support from various organizations.

Flutist Jeffrey Khaner Joins Lynn University’s Conservatory of Music Faculty BOCA RATON -- Principal flutist of the Philadelphia Orchestra, Jeffrey Khaner, is joining Lynn University’s Conservatory of Music faculty of artists and educators as artist-in-residence and professor of flute. “The opportunity that Lynn provides students is unique, combining the experience of the elite conservatory with that of a university setting,” said Khaner. “I am excited to start working with a flute class that can be at the very highest level.” Khaner is an acclaimed recitalist and has appeared as soloist with orchestras on five continents. He has released six critically acclaimed solo CDs on the Avie label – American, British, French, German, and Romantic Flute Music, and Brahms and Schumann sonatas and romances – including his latest CD of Czech music. “I have had the great good fortune to play all over the world on tours with the orchestra and on my own. One of the highlights of a musician’s life is traveling and sharing music with people from all over,” said Khaner. This year, he will begin sharing his music and his significant teaching experience with Lynn’s highly select group of gifted music students. “I like primarily to discuss music with students at this level. I have a rigorous method for technical development that students must work through, and I encourage students to always consider themselves their own best teacher to figure out solutions to technical problems. The lesson is much better learned when arrived at through thought and practice,” he says.   Jon Robertson, dean of Lynn’s Conservatory of Music, who enjoys a distinguished career as a pianist, conductor and academician, said he is thrilled to have someone of Khaner’s caliber among his faculty.

Jeffrey Khaner  “Jeffrey Khaner is one of the world’s great flutists and pedagogues.  His extraordinary abilities as a performer and symphonic musician are well documented in his solo recordings, as well as recordings with the Philadelphia Orchestra. His teaching style is at once impressive for his deep concern for excellence in technical and artistic proficiency,” said Robertson. The Canadian-born flutist has been principal flute of the Philadelphia Orchestra since 1990. A noted soloist, he has performed with orchestras and collaborated with conductors throughout the U.S., Canada and Asia. A graduate of The Juilliard School, he was named to the faculty as flute professor in 2004, holding the position formerly held by his mentor, the late Julius Baker. In addition, Khaner serves on the faculties of The Juilliard School and The Curtis Institute of Music and gives master classes throughout North, South and Central America, Europe and Asia.

Girls Just Want to Talk Dirty 

Sex is funny. Sex is also tragic and baffling but almost always interesting. That’s why it has been an enduring subject for stories, poems and plays through the ages. “For a Good Time Call” is a contemporary R-rated female comedy about phone sex, but it’s more than that. “Good Time” was co-written by Lauren Miller, who also stars as a good little rich girl also called Lauren. Lauren is trying to break into publishing in New York City with little luck. Her love life is even worse. Her feckless boyfriend Charlie (James Wolk) has decided he wants to break it off and go to Italy. Lauren and Charlie had been together two years and were living together in her late grandmother’s apartment. To add to her misery, Lauren learns her apartment is no longer rent-controlled and will be rented to the highest bidder. Lauren is homeless and jobless in the big city. Out of misery comes comedy. Lauren answers an ad for a roommate at a posh Gramercy Park apartment and discovers it was placed by an old college nemesis, Katie Steele (Ari Graynor). Lauren and Katie had a falling out as college freshmen ten years previously. Now, they are thrown together by circumstances

Scene from “For a Good Time” beyond their control. Yes, “Good Time” has its hook on the rather raunchy subject of phone sex. Lauren discovers Katie has a lucrative side business as a phone sex operator, and inevitably the otherwise prim Lauren is drawn in to the scheme for some quick cash. “Good Time” is really more about friendship between polar opposites. While the raunchy stuff is at times laughout-loud funny, the story is surprisingly sweet and sentimental under the direction of  first-time Canadian Jamie Travis. The humor is accented by some amusing cameos. Justin Long plays against type as the effeminately gay friend of Lauren. Seth Rogen, who is Lauren Miller’s real-life boyfriend, has a hilarious bit as a horny airline pilot. Kevin Smith is a heavy-breathing caller. Nia Vardalos (“My Big Fat Greek Wedding”) has a brief but memorable performance as a frosty editor offering Lauren’s dream job. Mimi Rogers has aged noticeably to fill her role as Lauren’s snobby mother. “Good Time” is not profound but it is better than a trifle. It’s a fair to middling comedy about young adults acting like juveniles.   Two stars

Revisiting Joseph’s Table This fall’s dinner menu retains most of the fine dishes we sampled in spring plus several new delights. A new starter is the jumbo lump crabmeat tower featuring diced tomato, cucumber, avocado and mango with a fresh herb and lime dressing – a cool, crisp and tasty warm weather treat. One must have the rich, warm and delicious lobster bisque complete with cream and brandy – robust with the true taste of the sea. The soup du jour was a cool watermelon gazpacho – sweet tasting as can be. We sampled their escargots again – refreshing our memory of a half dozen, out of shell delights in a great garlic butter sauce – served with crusty bread – still a winner. The entrée listings included Dover sole – pan roasted sole with a choice of almondine butter or lemon-caper butter or plain lemon butter sauces – we feel only a bit of lemon butter sauce is necessary to enhance the full flavor of the sole. Prepared at tableside, it is a fine, fine dish. There is a herb crusted salmon filet, gently cooked, flavorful and served with crispy seasonal vegetables and potato. Sautéed jumbo shrimp arrived with gluten free spaghetti, tomato, basil white wine and olive oil – fine tasting and recommended. Listed are Maine lobsters, crabmeat

stuffed baked 1 ½ pounders or broiled 2 ½ pounders with drawn butter… try any of six sides from the menu to round out your entrée. For poultry dishes – we chose both the roasted whole Cornish hen and the roasted Maple Leaf duck. The hen with wild rice, dried cranberry and pine nut pilaf and lemon-thyme mushroom sauce was a very light tasting bird with rich accompaniments. The duck was a wonderfully rich, gently game- tasting treat served with sweet potato mousseline, oranges and fresh berries with a fig/balsamic glace – this we prefer. We had enjoyed the pappardelle and short ribs, the wonderful Wiener schnitzel, rack of lamb and filet mignon in the past – also on this current menu! The dessert menu repeats the past – Joseph’s Apfel strudel and his crème caramel were a fine as before. A flourless chocolate tart, sugar free lemon mousse, gelato/sorbet and fresh berries are listed as well.

“King & I” to Open 60th Season at Lake Worth Playhouse LAKE WORTH -- The Lake Worth Playhouse opens its 60th Anniversary season Oct. 5 with the classic story, “The King and I.” In this romantic musical, the boymeets-girl plot is woven into the historical context of the British Imperialism in Asia. It is the story of a clash between cultures and the dynamics between Great Britain and The Orient. The King of Siam invites an English governess to teach the children of his many wives about the modern world. Yet he himself resists changing his traditional role as the benevolent patriarchal dictator until the bold young governess wins his heart and his respect. Yul Brynner is perhaps best known for playing the role of the King of Siam. The play runs Oct. 5-21, with performances at 2 and 8 p.m. Tickets can be purchased through the Lake Worth Playhouse Box Office at 561-5866410 or online at  http://lakeworth-

Longer Life Guaranteed With Peaceful Sleep A serious health concern for many people and their partners in bed is snoring, grinding of their teeth and the fact that they might stop breathing. This problem is called sleep apnea. Classic symptoms of this malady are fatigue, sleepiness and snoring. Using a CPAP (mask-like contraption) makes many people claustrophobic and so Dr. Alvaro Betancur recommends an oral device. He says that sleep apnea is significantly underdiagnosed, which led him to obtain advanced training in that area beside his practice, which encompasses general dentistry, oral surgery, dental implants and sleep medicine. Sleep apnea sufferers repeatedly stop breathing while asleep, sometimes up to 500 times a night. The body needs oxygen so when it is deprived of it, this can cause a myriad of diseases such as heart problems, high blood pressure and adult onset diabetes. When sleep apnea us treated using oral appliances, the grinding comes to a stop. The headaches in the morning are gone, sore jaws disappear, and the teeth are protected, saving the patient a great deal of money. Medical insurance and Medicare pay for this kind of treatment. “ It’s less costly for them to treat the sleep apnea than to have to handle the comorbidities down the road,” Dr. Betancur says. Dr. Betancur works with several physicians and pulmonologists. “In terms of oral appliances, patients have many options. Dr. Betancur notes that, “ There are over a hundred FDA-ap-

Dr. Betancur

proved appliances for the treatment of sleep apnea. Using these oral appliances gives us a lot of freedom to adjust for the patient and tailor it to his or her needs.” Many ADD/ADHD patients are children who have sleep apnea. These children are terrible sleepers, which many parents think is caused by hyperactivity. “The brain shouldn’t be hyperactive when we’re asleep.” The problem is that these children are not getting enough air, so they wake to change position to get air. Children that have sleep apnea can be diagnosed incorrectly as having ADD/ADHD. “The solution is to have the adenoids and tonsils removed and seeing an orthodontist to get the special appliance needed to treat them.. Children can be treated starting at age 2 and in a matter of four to six weeks this helps them breathe better and sleep normally,” says Dr. Betancur.

The Boca Raton Tribune MUNICIPAL East/West Boca Raton, FL

THE CITIZENS VOICE By Al Zucaro

From City Council to County Courtroom So what happens when a city council, with taxpayer money, joins with a determined developer in a legal challenge against the city’s own citizens? A modern day version of the biblical story of DAVID AND GOLIATH, that’s what. And that is exactly what happened in Courtroom 11c at the Palm Beach County Courthouse this past Monday, September 10, 2012. Co-plaintiffs, the City of Boca Raton and Archstone Palmetto Park, LLC fielded a ‘dream team’ of 6 high powered litigators, Goliath, against one lone attorney, David, representing five brave and determined Boca Raton citizens in the citizens’ ongoing saga asking for a referendum vote as guaranteed by the city’s charter. This referendum vote is challenging the February 14, 2012 development order which, if enacted as passed, will change the character of downtown Boca Raton forever and ever. To listen to the ‘dream team’ lawyers, this development order is not the subject of a referendum vote due in large measure to legal reasoning that dates back in time almost two decades analyzing the city’s charter, binding and persuasive case law and the legislative intent around the 2012 legislation giving rise to this legal challenge. Law is all about words and their meaning, sometimes plain and other times convoluted. This case is no different. So let’s examine some of the words found in the written pleadings and oral arguments of this case. In the Court filings, one immediately finds the following stipulated facts which set the tone and backdrop for this modern day drama; to wit: “The parties hereto have an actual, present, adverse and antagonistic interest in the subject matter of this Complaint” and, that there is “a bona fide, actual, present need for a declaration” from the court that the City is or is not prohibited from processing the referendum requested by its citizens. Adverse and antagonistic are good descriptive adjectives describing the hostilities surrounding the city and its citizens throughout this controversy. There are no disputed facts in this courtroom controversy. There is no argument that the citizens did not meet the City’s Charter requirement for a referendum vote on the ‘Archstone’ development order. There is, however, convoluted legal argument that the subject 2012 legislative action did not include challenges to development orders such as the one presented in this controversy as this order is less than 5 parcels of land, and, that if the court were to rule as the defendant citizens are requesting, the entire legislative process would be rendered meaningless. Can you imagine paying the hourly rates for the ‘dream team’ to dream up these far reaching legal arguments? The simpler argument is made by the citizens’ lone attorney. He argues that the plain language of the disputed development order is, on its face, applicable not merely to the ‘Archstone’ parcel but to the entire

Municipal News

downtown Boca Raton area. He further argues that, if adapted as written, this development order applies to all ‘downtown’ Boca Raton parcels and sets new rules for density, intensity, and developmental transfer rights for all land parcels within the described boundaries of downtown Boca Raton. Without getting to far into the legal weeds of this case, it is worth mentioning that the Court is governed by a narrow standard of pre-election judicial review; to wit: that the proposed ballot question is facially unconstitutional in its entirety or contrary to or expressly preempted by state law. There is no argument that the referendum ballot question is unconstitutional on its face but the ‘dream team’ does argue that the referendum is contrary to state law. To establish this argument, the ‘dream team’ offers convoluted reasoning suggesting that the 2012 legislation has no express intent to support ‘retroactive’ application. A further argument is made that there is an ‘implied preemption’ based in large measure on case law and legal reasoning far beyond the limits of this column. In response, the citizens’ attorney correctly points out that the language of the legislative act “does clearly express the legislature’s intent to retroactively apply the law”, and that the argument of an “implied preemption” is strongly disfavored by the Florida Supreme Court. Lawyers are bound to follow the law. Good lawyers will always look for ways to overcome negative facts or case law that is in opposition to their desired outcomes. The lawyers in this case are good lawyers, professional and prepared. The arguments on both sides were creative, expansive and certainly within the realm of reasonable legal bounds. Monday’s hearing was in front of Circuit Court Judge Lucy Chernow Brown. Judge Brown was well prepared, attentive and balanced. Her questions were insightful and reasoned; her demeanor professional. From a pure legal observer point of view, this was an excellent lesson in legal reasoning, argument, and courtroom drama. No decision was rendered. The judge took the arguments presented under advisement and will rule in the near future…. The ‘dream team, Goliath, representing the city and the developer, seemed to leave the courtroom believing their convoluted arguments will win the day. The citizens’ attorney, David, also presented confidence in the expected outcome. We shall see what we shall see. One thing is for sure, this is not the end of the court action or the political fallout. Whatever the court ruling, this observer expects that the case will be taken to the appellate level. If the co-plaintiffs prevail, the future of downtown Boca Raton will be forever changed. If the citizens prevail, that change will be, at best, delayed and the citizens’ bravery and diligence will live to fight another day…. Al Zucaro

Business The Boca Raton Tribune

Small Business Development Center at Palm Beach State College is here to Help Small Business Companies By Aaron Wecker If you have a new business in Boca Raton, or you’re thinking about starting a business, the Small Business Development Center (SBDC) located at Palm Beach State College, is specifically geared towards helping you. The organization is 30 years old and is located nation wide. They are a nonprofit organization funded in part by the Small Business Administration (SBA), in this county by the Office for Small Business Assistance (OSBA) and by their host the Palm Beach State College. They offer free counseling to any person interested in starting a business, or someone trying to expand their business. Ted Kramer, the regional director put it this way, “Come in this afternoon, we’ll show you how to register this afternoon and within 48 hours maximum you have got a legitimate company.” Ted Kramer explained that, “you’ve got to develop an atmosphere and you’ve got let people know that when you want to do that (start a business), there are people out there that can help; and they don’t charge

you. They know what they’re doing and the sure know how to set up a company.” This he explained is what the SBDC is all about, helping people understand the risks and benefits of starting a business, and helping them formulate a realistic strategy and plan. It’s about turning your ideas into a practical reality. The economic times have made it very hard for small business owners, but not impossible and the SBDC has many of the connection in the local community and government that are needed to start a business. Constance J. Scott, the growth acceleration counselor explained the different services offered; such as the Florida Procurement Technical Assistance Center (PTAC), which helps businesses owners get contracts with the federal government agencies like the Department of Defense (DoD). They have a veteran outreach program targeted at returning vets, and helping them to acclimatize back to civilian life and the market they’re trying to start a business in. These are just a few of the many services offered by the SBDC for free, to new businesses owners, or those

interested in starting their own. The SBDC seeks out alternate forms of financing for people. Since the banking crisis of 2008, banks have been more reluctant than ever to give small business loans, so the SBDC helps find asset based lending, venture capitalists, business angels and micro-loans, to help small business that would otherwise unfunded find

Constance J. Scott the funding to get started. The SBDC is right around the corner, and their door is open to anyone interested in starting, or advancing their business and as Ted stated, “all we wanna do is be there from them, if we can do that, and as Constance says get our name out there so people know what we do, that’s great.”

New Insty-Prints Owners Bring Brotherly Bond, Unique Experience to Business

BOCA RATON – Brothers Carlos and Jose Segnini had worked together in the past and were looking for a way to work together again. They had hoped to find something that would combine Carlos’ background in printing and Jose’s photography experience. Insty-Prints in Boca Ra-

ton turned out to be the perfect fit.  “We felt it was best to stick with what we know, and Carlos has years of experience in the printing industry,” said Jose Segnini. “My work in photography gives me a good eye for composition and color, which will be beneficial in helping customers create pieces that will grab the attention of their audience.” Originally from Venezuela, the Segninis have made Boca Raton their adopted home town, which was another key aspect in their selection of Insty-Prints. Also, the broth-

ers already have big plans for their business, including finding a new building to accommodate growth and transitioning to the Allegra brand. “We know how important high-quality printing and professional marketing services are for our customers in terms of getting out their message,” said Jose. “By providing as many of those capabilities as we can in one spot we can best support the needs of our customers in helping them grow their business.” Insty-Prints offers advanced printing

technologies including full-color printing, graphic design service, digital color signs, posters and banners and complete finishing services.

Rosh Hashanah 5773

Child Support Guidelines

We Jews are lucky, we have two new years. The secular New Year is a celebration and the religious New Year is a cerebration, i.e. we employ our cerebellum to try to steer ourselves in a better direction. The secular New Year is a time of revelry, while the religious New Year is a time of revery, where we are reverent towards the creative energy that permeates the universe, and which also lies within each of us. Between revery and revelry, and celebration and cerebration there is an “ell” of a difference. “El” is the Hebrew word for God. While many Jews do not believe in a personal God, at this time of year, all Jews strive to attune ourselves to the inner voice that urges us to make the most of our lives and strive to be a blessing to others. As we begin the High Holy Days, we make resolutions to do better and cherish the opportunity to get off to a new start. New beginnings are brimming with possibilities, yet some feel that they have been dealt a bad hand in life and are ready to give up. Others feel that they have tried so many times to achieve a lofty goal and failed, that they have no energy left to try again. Fortunately, our father Abraham did not feel this way. According to the Bible, he was a septuagenarian when after a lifetime of “idoling” away his time with “idol” pursuits, he made a new start and sought a higher purpose. Abraham welcomed change and the possibility to grow beyond his present limitations. He believed that he had been called upon to be a blessing to humanity and he wholeheartedly accepted this calling. As Jews, we all are recipients of this higher calling, and we are exhorted to respond as Abraham did by saying“hineni” i.e., “Here I am”. Another Abraham responded to the call to dedicate his life to a higher purpose. This Abraham had suffered so many humiliating defeats that his friends removed all the knives from his house. He failed in business in ’31, was defeated for state legislator in ’32, failed in another business in ’33, had a nervous breakdown in ’36, was defeated in a run for Congress in ’43 and in ’48, lost a campaign for Senate in

’55, ran for Vice President in ’56 and lost, and was defeated again in his bid for the U.S. Senate in ’59. The average person would have given up long ago. However Abraham Lincoln understood that most people are not defeated by others, but by themselves. After incredible perseverance, Abraham Lincoln was elected the 16th President of the United States and changed the world forever. Today, no one remembers his failures; instead people around the world celebrate his accomplishments, which include holding this country together at a time that it looked like it could be torn apart, and authoring the Emancipation Proclamation which finally freed the slaves. On Rosh Hashanah we remember what Lincoln taught, that it does not matter how many times you are knocked down, what matters is will we get back up? Some people think Abraham Lincoln may have been Jewish due to his Jewish first name, his religious views, and the fact that his ancestors were from a town in England where many Jews were killed or forced to convert. While we may never know if Lincoln was biologically Jewish, we do know that he was spiritually Jewish when he gave his life for the welfare of others for the goal of Tikkun Olam, i.e. repairing the world. The message of the Jewish New Year, is a universal call that we can all improve our lives and the lives of others. Rosh Hashanah literally means head of the year. The word for year in Hebrew, “Shanah” also means “change”, so literally Rosh Hashanah means with the head we can change. This quintessential human gift to reflect upon our lives and change for the better allows us share in the divine gift of creativity, and makes life exciting, and each day a new adventure. As we begin the year 5773, let us strive to emulate both Abrahams by never giving up on important objectives, refusing to get discouraged due to initial setbacks, and filled with gratitude for the opportunity to be of service to others and a blessing to mankind. I wish people of all faiths and backgrounds a happy and healthy 5773.

Should The HEAT Play Even Faster Next Season? Tempo is very important to any individual team’s success. Early on in the season, teams must establish an identity. Are they going to be a team that tries to push the tempo every opportunity they can by getting out in transition or are they going to be a methodical half court oriented team? The coaching staff has to evaluate its team’s personnel before deciding on what the team’s main identity is going to be. Determining a team’s identity is a major decision for any coaching staff. In the defending champion Miami HEAT’s case, they already have an established identity which is to push the ball off turnovers and missed shots from the opposing team. The question is can they play even faster than they played last season? HEAT coach Erik Spoelstra seems to think so. “I hope to play faster,” Spolestra told 560 WQAM recently this week. “We turned it up a gear last year and I think we have the personnel to hopefully go even faster. I think with a normal training camp and a normal season we can build up that habit even more.” It is in the HEAT’s best interest to utilize

their speed and athleticism every chance they have. Since the HEAT is severely undersized against a number of other contending teams, they need to take advantage of their own fair share of strengths. The ability to play like the “Showtime Lakers” is definitely one of the advantages they have that most teams don’t. It is important to remember that during the beginning of the season, they were able to get out and run like there was no tomorrow. However, as the season wore on the HEAT’s pace dropped off significantly to about the league average of 19th. This was partly due to the fact that teams started to make adjustments defensively. But it also had to do with the fact that the HEAT became their own worst enemy because they just stopped playing as fast as they were capable of. In spurts, you would see explosive plays in the open court from the HEAT. The problem was that they just weren’t able to sustain this type of rapid pace. The HEAT has proven that they have the capability of beating a majority of teams in this league at their own game. The thing is

if the HEAT actually plays their game, they will be virtually unstoppable. There is absolutely no way a team such as the Pacers or Celtics can hang with the HEAT when they are at their high flying explosive best. This is why it makes a remarkable amount of sense that coach Spoelstra wants his team to play faster more consistently. Last year,

the HEAT won its second championship in franchise history based on talent, effort, teamwork, chemistry and timely shooting. So if they win it again this year, it will be because they also have a true identity. You can add it to the list of reasons why they repeat if they do in fact repeat.

Strikers Clinch Playoff Spot With Draw Against Islanders The Fort Lauderdale Strikers (9W-7T9L) clinched a spot in the NASL Playoffs for the second consecutive season with a 1-1 draw against the Puerto Rico Islanders (10W-7T-8L) in front of 4,704 fans at Lockhart Stadium on Saturday night. Puerto Rico scored in just the second minute of the match, and the Strikers answered in the 8th minute, but there would be no more scoring in the match. Fort Lauderdale will now take to the road for their final two regular season games against the Atlanta Silverbacks and FC Edmonton. Should the team finish the season in third or fourth place, Fort Lauderdale would host a first round playoff game at Lockhart Stadium on Saturday, Sept. 29.

“I thought we played well tonight, and obviously we’re pleased to be in the playoffs for the second year in a row,” said Strikers head coach Daryl Shore. “We know we have to play two tough road games and we’ll go into these games with a playoff mentality to stay focused and work together.” The match started with a bang when Islanders forward Nick Addlery collected a turnover 35 yards from goal and fired a shot which skipped off the wet field, hit the inside of the left post and went into the net past Matt Glaeser. Puerto Rico took the lead 1-0 and the goal was Addlery’s ninth of the season. The Strikers would even the match just

six minutes later when a ball played into the area came to midfielder Hosman Ramos whose pass took a minor deflection and fell to the feet of Pecka. The second-year Striker shot toward net and the ball struck the bottom of the crossbar and bounced into the goal. The match remained even the rest of the first half. In the second half, the Strikers were able to create several chances with forward Andy Herron breaking in on goal more than once. Unfortunately the best chance was called for offside and the Strikers were left without a victory in their regular season home finale. “The support tonight was absolutely fan-

tastic by our fans and unfortunately we were unable to reward them with a win, but both teams really pushed to get the winning goal and I felt we played well tonight,” said Shore.   Fort Lauderdale finished the regular season with a record of eight wins, four ties and two losses at Lockhart Stadium producing 28 points. The mark is a significant improvement on their 23 points earned at home in 2011. In order to return to Lockhart Stadium in the post season, it is likely the Strikers will need to win their final two regular season games. A home game would be ensured should the team reach the second round the 2012 NASL Playoffs.

FAU Prepares for Number Seven Ranked Georgia Bulldogs

The Florida Atlantic Owls football team faces an uphill battle when they travel to Athens, Georgia this Saturday, September 15, to take on the #7-ranked University of Georgia Bulldogs. Coming off of a 31-17 loss last week at Middle Tennessee State, head coach Carl Pelini has no steps in place to change his gameplan despite the reputation of his opponent. “If you change how you do things based on your opponent, then you’re telling your guys, we didn’t do it good enough any other weeks,” he said. “I think no matter who your opponent is, you prepare as best you can, and you do it the way think is the best way to do it. We do the best job we can preparing our guys every week.” Mostly, Pelini believes the change starts with his own squad. “We have 100 things we need to fix,” he said. “I knew when I took this job that that would be the challenge, fixing everything. The way we practice, the way

Sports

we prepare, the way we work out, the way we conduct our daily lives. All those things manifest themselves on the field. Those are the things I’m worried about. I can’t worry about Georgia, Alabama, North Texas, or Louisiana-Monroe, I have to worry about us. Until we can get us fixed, it really doesn’t matter who the opponent is.” There are positives to playing a school like Georgia though, the coach says. “I want our players to share my vision, and I want my administration and school administration to share my vision,” said Pelini. “To go up and play a team that is perennially a top-20 team, and see not just (what’s) on the football field, but the organization itself. How they conduct game day and how their players act on the field, how their players prepare and how they execute, and how their athletic staff administration as a whole conducts the game experience. All those things are positive things for a school like FAU because that’s what my vision for this

program ultimately would be.” While Pelini has never coached against a Mark Richt-led squad, he respects the way he coaches. “I’ve always been impressed by Mark Richt and his teams. They’re physical, downhill, well-schooled. They do what they do, and they do it well. You’re not gonna see a different Georgia team week-to-week. That’s true in the SEC a lot, the athletes they have allow them to do that. I like coaches that have success through consistency. I look at schools like Alabama, LSU, Georgia, Virginia Tech, the teams who year in and year out, they have an identity that you don’t see shifting all the time. Oregon, in a different way, they still have their identity. They believe in it, they stick with it, they play it out year in and year out. Those are the programs, there’s a reason they’re always good. They’re not fly by night, they know what they want to do, and they just go out and execute it.”
