Lynn has spent millions preparing the campus for the arrival of the two presidential contenders. In addition, Boca Raton Mayor Susan Whelchel has called the debate “a huge event” for the city and for the university. “This is a national and international opportunity,” she said, citing the economic impact coming from the “tremendous television coverage” and the arrival of thousands of journalists. “We are prepared and ready to showcase our lovely community” by way of the debates, she added. In preparation for the one-on-one, Boca Raton continues its month-long schedule of debate–related programming with a movie under the stars on Friday, October 12. Residents and visitors are invited to come watch one of the American Film Institute’s top 100 movies, “Mr. Smith Goes to Washington.”  This 1939 Frank Capra film was nominated for 11 Academy Awards, winning for Best Original Story.

BOCA RATON -- The South Florida business community is rallying unprecedented support for the October 22 Presidential Debate taking place at Lynn University with the official Small Business Partner program.

Letters to the Editor Normally, I don’t like to talk about my own political inclinations. But I have made it clear in the past that I am not a big fan of President Barack Obama. So, obviously, I’m glad that Mitt Romney came out swinging in Wednesday’s presidential debate. And to my mind, he had Mr. Obama on the ropes during much of the 90-minute event. I’m not just personally glad, I also feel good for the city of Boca Raton. Wednesday’s debate was informational and interesting – even intense. So, when the candidates come to Lynn University on Oct. 22 for their final debate, it should be a barnburner. My wife and I didn’t let the first debate go by without a lot of conversation. We actually talked until 1 a.m. about what we had seen. And I told her that, for the first time in four years, I actually felt bad for Mr. Obama. After he and Mitt shared a laugh at the beginning of the debate about the fact that it was the Obama’s’ anniversary, the chief executive seemed to lose his usual speaking aplomb. I had been afraid that Mr. Obama would outdo Romney on the basis of his debating talent alone. But it didn’t happen. Romney finally seemed to get the message that he needed to intensify his attacks on the president. And he certainly did. To date, Romney has seemed too aloof and careful about what he was saying. Wednesday night, he threw out the rule book and made sure his message got out. He was polished and sincere, tough, yet polite. Politesse doesn’t always work in the political arena. Mike Dukakis, another former governor of Massachusetts and the 1988 Democratic presidential candidate, told me once that he felt his loss to George H.W. Bush was due in large part to his failure to respond in kind to Bush’s jabs and halftruths. Bush dragged out the Willie Horton issue and also implied that Dukakis had gone purposely ignored polluted Boston Harbor. And there were other jabs that also went unanswered. I was afraid Romney might also go down in flames for lack of proper response. Let me clarify myself on a couple of things. I’ve always voted as an Independent. I’m also from Massachusetts and lived in Rhode Island as well. Both states are highly,

Editorials & Letters

highly Democratic. I remember as a younger man how former Bay State Governor Frank Sargent – a Republican – screwed up the state’s financial situation so much that when Dukakis – a liberal -- stepped in in 1975, he had to slash the budget like no Democrat would normally slash. He did his best to eliminate the title of “Taxachusetts.” And I think he did. But you had to live there at the time to understand what he did. I think Mike Dukakis got getting little recognition for bailing out the Bay State when the chips were really down. I don’t favor Romney because he is from Massachusetts. Actually, he is not a native. I believe he was born in Michigan. But he has taken on the Commonwealth as if it were his home state, and has raised his family as Bay Staters. I was particularly intrigued by Romney’s comment during the debate that Massachusetts was Number 1 in the area of colleges and universities. I went to college at Northeastern University, located in the heart of Back Bay, Boston, close to many of those other fine schools Romney alluded to. Maybe Romney struck a chord with my own Bay State pride. But you don’t elect presidents on the basis of pride, but on the basis of ability. Also, I don’t dislike Mr. Obama. He seems like a fine gentleman, a good father and loving husband. He is not a bad man, and in another time, he might have made a very good president. I admit he was hit with a major task when he came to the White House. The nation was financially as bad off as it could get. I don’t blame Mr. Obama for not solving the problem in four years. But I hold him accountable for the fact that the US is virtually the same now as it was in 2008. If someone were to ask me if I am better off today than I was four years ago, I would shout a resounding, “No way.” My wife wondered why I felt bad for Obama when the debate was over. I felt bad because he was floundering – and presidents shouldn’t flounder. JFK didn’t flounder. Nor did Bill Clinton or Ronald Reagan. At last, Mr. Obama has shown he is vulnerable – that he is a real person. If he had shown that four years ago, he might be the odds on favorite to win a second term.

Doug Heizer’s column on the value of time, how precious it is, and how we should respect and enjoy each day was terrific. No matter how much wealth a person can acquire in a lifetime, it cannot buy time. • Flossy Keesely To the Tribune: Pro-life prayer chains are planned for the first weekend in October at various parishes and locations within the five-county area of the Diocese of Palm Beach in observance of  Respect Life Sunday which occurs on Sunday, October 7. Respect Life Sunday is the first Sunday of October in which Catholics celebrate life and participate in pro-life events. It is also part of  Respect Life Month designated as such by the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops to encourage all to reflect during the entire month in a special way on the respect for all life and the dignity of all life. In your area, a candlelight rosary vigil will be held Oct. 6 on the parish grounds of St. Vincent Ferrer Church, 840 George Bush Boulevard, Delray Beach.

THOUGHTS FROM THE PUBLISHER By Douglas Heizer

Effective Leaders Impart A Bigger Vision Rick Boxx wrote a great column this week that I thought I would share with you all that talks about effective leadership and how we can all apply that to our daily lives. Have a great week and God Bless, Douglas Heizer When my daughter, Megan, said she desired to become an occupational therapist. I did not understand this vocation or what such work would entail. That was before we attended an open house at Kansas University Medical Center’s Graduate Program for Occupational Therapy. The program director first greeted all of the parents and prospective students, then proceeded to inform us that an occupational therapist’s job is “to discover the dreams of the patient, then help them overcome their challenges to achieve those dreams.” I had to marvel at this powerful picture of the impact an occupational therapist can have. The program director must have been a wise leader, because she could have described daily duties and would have been accurate in detailing what an occupational therapist does. Instead, she inspired and encouraged these students with a vision for changing lives. And in the process, she gained the support of parents who felt great enthusiasm about the meaningful roles their chil-

dren could play in people’s lives. We see many biblical examples of the principle of inspiring followers with a great vision for the future. In Deuteronomy 3, for example, God said to Moses, “But commission Joshua, and encourage and strengthen him, for he will lead this people across and will cause them to inherit the land that you will see.” God was not just giving Joshua an assignment – He was imparting vision for leading the Israelites. A savvy leader inspires others with a vision bigger and more important than the specific responsibilities involved in performing the job. You might know the story of the brick mason observed chipping at a large piece of granite, working as part of a large construction crew in Europe. When a passerby asked what he was doing, the mason replied, “I’m building a cathedral!” That man had vision. The challenge for us as leaders is in communicating this vision, enabling people to see their work as bigger than themselves. It starts with us – you cannot give away something you do not possess, so we need to have the greater vision ourselves before we can pass it on to others. That is why I was so impressed by the description of what an occupational therapist actually does. We spend so much of our time in business focused on the bottom line, striving for profits,

that we often lose sight of a greater vision. In your company, you know the products and services you provide. But what is your vision – how can your business make a positive, meaningful difference in the lives of people that you touch? Here are two biblical examples. Make clear what you expect them to do. When Jesus initially approached His future disciples, He needed to convince them to leave their accustomed work as fishermen. He simply gave them their new job description: “Come, follow me, and I will make you fishers of men” (Matthew 4:19). Communicate how lives can be changed. At the close of His earthly ministry, Jesus Christ made clear to His followers what He expected them to do: “…go and make disciples of all nations…teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you” (Matthew 28:19-20).

POSITIVE LIVING By Dr. Synesio Lyra, Jr.

You Can’t Succeed All Alone! Succeeding at anything in life is often the outcome of a joint venture, it stems from a collaborative engagement. Every individual on earth is dependent on others if one is to function adequately in society, most especially in areas where something significant is the ultimate goal. Humans are social creatures and operate best interdependently because no single person ever has all the answers to anything. Furthermore, no person should be viewed as omni-competent on any life issue. Despite the abundant knowledge and proven skills which anyone may manifest, there’s something unique which shall still be lacking that only another fellow human can provide for the completion of something worthwhile. It’s good and commendable for anyone to

show personal initiative in a new venture, to attempt to do as much as he or she can on one’s own. But the time inevitably comes when others must be consulted, when the wisdom and skills from someone else are necessary to be brought onboard, before a project can legitimately reach its successful conclusion. A practical benefit stemming from all this, is that a unique fraction of the eventual product also brings credit to somebody additional. The inventor, the originator of the idea, the one who may have started the whole enterprise all alone, recognized the need to ask questions of others; she was forced to seek aid on complicated features. In other words, wisdom led that project initiator to acknowledge other elements of the work to which necessary, beneficial expertise,

should be sought and utilized! This concept was uniquely expressed many years ago, by a wise American when he proclaimed: “You cannot borrow character, but you can borrow brains.” With that in mind he diligently sought all the right persons with the expertise he lacked, and proceeded to build a great university which still continues to flourish in one of our southern states. The ingenuity and the final quality of any significant project shall manifest far greater superiority when it is accomplished with the participation of a well-chosen team instead of a lone ranger which is limited in scope and procedures. This applies to great and small endeavors! It takes joint efforts to bring great endeavors to benefit the human race at any level!

Dr. Synesio Lyra, Jr. is a Florida resident who, for many years, was a professor at the post-graduate level. He is a writer, a sought-after conference speaker, a man who lived in five continents of the 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.

FAU Partners With Women in Distress to Offer Internship Program BOCA RATON – Florida Atlantic University’s School of Social Work has partnered with Women in Distress (WID) of Broward County to offer internship opportunities for undergraduate students. FAU undergraduates will gain hands-on work experience while serving the local community.  “We are excited about this new collaboration that benefits not only our undergraduate students in gaining resumebuilding experiences but also serves our local community in administering crucial services to women and families,” said Michele J. Hawkins, Ph.D., MSW, director for the FAU School of Social Work. “This partnership will help to ensure the success of our students beyond the classroom by providing a ‘real world’ application of knowledge and skills through their internship field work at Women in Distress of Broward County.” WID is a full service domestic violence center serving Broward County for the past 38 years through programs divided into residential services, outreach services, prevention and education.  This summer welcomed the first group of FAU Bachelor of Social Work (BSW) students in their final semester as interns at WID’s Deerfield Beach location. 

Completing the minimum requirement of 400 hours per semester, interns received training on how to directly serve victims of domestic violence through activities that included administering group and individual counseling, individual case management, registrations, safety planning, and crisis line operations. “This new partnership between FAU’s School of Social Work and Women in Distress is so important,” said Mary A. Riedel, Women in Distress of Broward County President and CEO.  “Our participants served at WID, especially children, are getting compassionate, one-on-one advocacy help and our agency is getting hours of professional services that the interns are able to provide at a time when so many more victims of family violence are coming forward.” The FAU School of Social Work has more than 200 agencies throughout seven Southeast Florida counties currently participating in the field education internship program.  For the 2011-12 academic year, total student field hours donated to the community through the numerous internship programs equal 143,600 and amount to an estimated local economic impact of more than $3 million.

Congressional Candidate Hasner Endorsed by County Police Union BOCA RATON - Adam Hasner has announced that the Palm Beach County Police Benevolent Association endorsed his campaign for the United States House in Florida’s District 22. “I am proud to earn the endorsement of the association, the men and women who help keep our communities safe,” said Republican Hasner.  “I appreciate that they understand my proven record of standing up to gangs and my work to provide law enforcement with the tools needed to make our neighborhoods safer here in South Florida.”

“The Palm Beach County Police Benevolent Association knows both Adam Hasner and (Democratic opponent) Lois Frankel very well and we know how important this race is to the people of our community and the future of America,” said John Kazanjian, president of the Palm Beach County PBA. “When it comes to having an open mind, listening to both sides, and taking a responsible, results-oriented approach to keeping our community safe, there is only one choice in the race for

Congress in Florida’s 22nd district Adam Hasner,” he added. Hasner’s campaign has also been endorsed by the nonpartisan Voter’s Coalition, U.S. Chamber of Commerce, National Federation of Independent Business, Associated Builders and Contractors, and other national organizations.  He is also supported by a coalition of current and former elected officials, both Democrat and Republican, throughout Palm Beach and Broward counties.

Aaronson’s Alert: Heed Warnings About Hurricanes – and Also Tropical Storms

Commissioner Aaronson By County Commissioner Burt Aaronson District 5 Every year I remind you about hurricane preparation. In many of those articles I mention ‘the past has taught

us that despite the good intentions of government, it takes at least 24 hours to get help to you.  Make your preparations now.  You owe it to yourself and your family.’” After seven years with no major storms, no one could have predicted the effects that Tropical Storm Isaac would have on our area. We have all read about the flooding in Loxahatchee, the Acreage and Deer Run.  We saw the pictures on television and in the newspapers – families trapped in their homes, roads impassable, schools in that area closed.  Here in District 5, we were lucky.  There was no major damage anywhere.  My staff took a number of calls from a handful of communities about minor flooding that blocked entrances.  There was some confusion over who is responsible for draining water from the lakes, swales and culverts in communities.  In District 5, water drains from our communities into canals owned and operated by the Lake Worth District (LWDD).  LWDD then discharges water into regional canals

owned and operated by the South Florida Water Management District (SFWMD).  This three tier system works just fine most of the time.  But during extraordinary rainfall, water sometimes cannot be moved quickly enough.  This was the case with Isaac.  If you would like more information about water drainage, you can contact the LWDD at 561-498-5363 or SFWMD at 561686-8800.    I visited the county’s Emergency Operations Center.  Many of our employees worked tirelessly throughout the storm taking calls from the public, monitoring the situation and working with our local agencies to keep you safe.  It is reassuring to know that behind the scenes, the county is prepared and ready to assist you.  I am certain that we all learned a few lessons from Isaac.  My staff and I learned that communication is vitally important.  We will be making a change in my office for those times when the county closes for a storm or hurricane. 

When you call you will be directed to the county’s Emergency phone number 561-712-6400 so that you can receive immediate information.  In addition, let me remind you of other ways to “stay in touch” with the latest information.  Keep your televisions and radios tuned to your local news stations, including Channel 20.  Follow us on Twitter @PBCGOV, become a fan on Facebook, or visit  www. pbcgov.com.  As we move forward, let me remind you once again of the importance of being prepared.  Hurricane Season does not end until November 30th.  Review your plans and check your supplies now.  You owe it to yourself and your family’. As always, I invite your comments on any issue of interest to you.  As your Commissioner, I am here to help you.  You may write me at 301 N. Olive Ave., West Palm Beach, 33401 or call my staff at 276-1310 or toll free at 877930-2205.  My email address is: baaronso@pbcgov.org.

Free Breakfasts Now Offered Four Men Rob Saks Fifth Avenue; Use Sledge Hammer to Take Jewelry in All County Schools The Palm Beach County School Food Service Department announces that through its “Power up with Breakfast,” a free morning meal will be offered to all students in county schools. The service began Monday, Oct. 1. Students must select a breakfast that complies with the USDA school breakfast program, which requires them to select food items from three or four of the following food groups: grains, protein, fruit, and milk. At least one of the choices must be from the fruit group.  Studies continue to validate how important it is for students to start their day with a healthy breakfast and how

a well-nourished student has more energy available for cognitive and social activities. Because the breakfast and lunch programs are self-supporting and do not use general revenue education dollars, there will be no fiscal impact on the school district’s budget and no money taken from the classroom.  Breakfast is served daily, usually 30 minutes prior to the start of the school day.  For more information contact Steve Bonino at (561) 383-2000 or via email at steve.bonino@palmbeachschools.org.

BOCA RATON -- On Thursday, September 20, at 7:53 p.m., Boca Raton Police officers responded to Saks Fifth Avenue at the Town Center at Boca Raton mall after receiving a report of a robbery. Witnesses told police four males wearing masks and black clothing and carrying sledge hammers entered the store through the south doors. The suspects yelled for everyone to “get on the ground.” Police said the suspects went to several jewelry cases and smashed the glass. The suspects stole an undeter-

mined amount of jewelry and money from a cash register. The suspects left the store through the south doors and got into a waiting black, four-door BMW. No one was injured during the crime. On Friday, September 21, police said, the BMW was recovered in the residential neighborhood south of the Mall. If anyone has information about this crime, they are asked to call Detective Jeff Clare at (561) 338-1246 or Palm Beach County Crime Stoppers at (800) 458-TIPS.

“Looper” Not Just another Time-Travel Movie

Joseph-Gordon Leavitt and Bruce Willis in “Looper” Not another time-travel movie! That’s what I thought when I first heard the premise of “Looper.” Then the accolades started coming in for stars Joseph-Gordon Leavitt and Bruce Willis and writer-director Rian Johnson. Intrigued, I saw “Looper” as a paying customer and I’m glad I did. It is the best science-fiction-crime thriller so far in 2012 and I think it is destined to be a classic. “Looper” is set mostly in 2044, but it harkens ahead to 2072 and a decayed, corrupt and crime-ridden future. In the year 2074 time-travel was invented and quickly outlawed. The reason becomes apparent with the definition of Loopers, who are hired assassins who go back into the past and blow away a target destined to cause trouble for the mob in the future. Joe (Joseph Gordon-Leavitt) is one such Looper. So is Seth (Paul Dano), his best buddy. Loopers live a relatively good life, but at a fearsome price. One day each will be forced to “Close the Loop,” or in other words kill themselves and vanish without a trace. Writer-director Rian Johnson doesn’t create any complex mumbo-jumbo to make this premise believable. You either buy it or you don’t. If you do buy into it, as I think most people will, the scenario presents all kinds of tough moral dilemmas. Joe is faced with the dilemma of killing his older self, played by Bruce Willis. He chokes, old Joe escapes, and the chase is on. As with the time-travel premise, Johnson makes hardly any effort to create a futuristic look. People drive the same cars we do now. Joe drives a Mazda Miata roadster. There is one whiz-bang jet motorcycle thing and some CG animation of a big city. This is no bigbudget blockbuster. Its power comes from the mind-bending twists and ironic turns of the story and the amazing performances of the two stars. Joseph-Gordon Leavitt has been physically altered with makeup, prosthetics, dye and contact lenses to more resemble Bruce Willis. More importantly, you sense a mutual respect and bond between the younger and older actor. Willis does the best acting he has in years as a man torn by loss and regret. Leavitt proves he has moved into the major leagues with his most powerful performance to date. There is a side plot involving a single mom (Emily Blunt) and her otherworldly son Cid (Pierce Gagnon) who may or may not

grow up to be a truly evil figure.  There are echoes of Old Testament retribution as the characters teeter between painful good and lucrative evil. For once the ending is not a cop-out. I’ll say no more except this film sets the mark for high-emotional action/drama for this year or perhaps any other.  Four stars  Something is Rotten in “The Oranges”  There is no shortage of drama in the suburbs. Take “The Oranges,” if you will. David and Paige Walling (Hugh Laurie and Catherine Keener) and Terry and Cathy Ostroff (Oliver Platt and Allison Janney) are best friends and neighbors in West Orange, New Jersey in this domestic/romantic comedy directed by Julian Farino and written by Jay Weiss and Ian Heifer. The story is narrated by the Wallings’ sourpuss daughter Vanessa (Alla Shawkat). Vanessa is 24 and still living at home. Neither her career nor her love life are going anywhere fast. The calm is broken when Nina Ostroff (Leighton Meister), the Ostroff ’s beautiful daughter and Vanessa’s former best friend, arrives unexpectedly just before Thanksgiving after a five-year absence. It seems that Nina’s imagined perfect life has just evaporated. Her self-possessed fiancé Ethan (Sam Rosen) has broken the engagement and announced he is off to Europe, without Nina. Crestfallen and vulnerable, Nina turns not to Vanessa’s perfect brother Toby (Adam Brody) but to handsome David Walling (Laurie) for sympathy. She gets more than either bargained for. It seems that David’s relationship with his obsessive wife Paige (Keener) has been deteriorating without either one really noticing. When a beautiful young thing shows an interest in David, he is tempted to throw caution to the winds. There is some slapstick comedy in “The Oranges,” with the righteously angry Terry doing battle with his best buddy David, but there is a fair amount of pain too, particularly on the part of the “woman scorned,” played with equal parts sorrow and resolve by the formidable Keener. “The Oranges” is one rung above a typical situation comedy, but it reminds us there is more going on than meets the eye in the suburbs.  Two and a half stars

When called upon to review restaurant s we seek consistency in above-par taste, texture and presentation throughout the menu offerings. Saltimbocca has exceeded our expectations to the degree that we will merely list the fine dished we sampled without specific comments. Antipasti- Shrimp Sambucca , Cajon seared jumbo shrimp sautéed with crisp vegetables in sweet and spicy Sambucca sauce. Braised beef short ribs with root vegetables, leeks and crimini mushrooms in a rich bordelaise sauce. Crispy fried calamari served with marinara sauce and a garlic arugula aioli. Six escargots served in a very light garlic butter, chardonnay wine, fresh herb sauce with mushrooms. Soups – Soup du Jour was hot chicken soup with shards of chicken pieces and vegetables. The spicy crab bisque on menu was deliberately served tepid, not hot with a fine petite crab cake afloat. Salads – a stacked Napoleon of fresh mozzarella and vine ripe tomatoes, rich with fresh basil oil and a balsamic glaze. An arugula and goat cheese salad had Mandarin orange slices and Bermuda onion slivers in a balsamic citrus dressing. Caesar salad had crisp shards of romaine with croutons in homemade Caesar dressing and slivers of Romano cheese. Steaks and Chops – a veal chop Saltimbocca was sautéed in a Marsala demiglace, topped with prosciutto and Buffalo mozzarella, served with Yukon gold mashed. The blackened prime rib eye gorgonzola was pan seared in a Madeira wine sauce, with polenta and asparagus and crimini mushrooms. Walnut encrusted rack of lamb- done medium- was served with rosemary infused port demiglace sauce plus mixed vegetables and Yukon gold mashed. A honey roasted pork chop featured a balsamic reduction and brandied apples and pears.

Saltimbocca has a list of 14 Italian favorites and we tasted four. A veal Saltimbocca with mushroom and prosciutto on a bed of spinach with melted mozzarella. A veal Marsala featured a sweet Marsala mushroom demiglace sauce. Both these specialties can be had with chicken in lieu of veal. The chicken cacciatore is sautéed in marinara sauce with peppers, onions and mushrooms. For pasta we sampled creamy Vodka sauce over tender penne. Chef Mark presented Osso Bucco, a braised veal shank with porcini mushrooms and saffron risotto and superb taste. He has eight other Chef ’s specialties on this menu. We ended our adventure with tastings of an excellent chocolate velvet cake sample followed by Italian cheesecake and a tiramisu- all rich and delicious. The restaurant seats 170 plus a private room seating 80. Saltimbocca has a full bar – seating 20-and a lounge that seats 25. In addition to 5 house wines there are 9 white and sparkling plus 8 reds – all by the glass. Wines by the bottle number 35 offerings. Open in December of 2011, the menu listings are permanent yet Chef ’s specials are offered daily. Open for luncheon and dinner from 11:30AM to 10PM weekdays, they offer dinners only, Saturday and Sunday from 4:30PM to 10PM. A child’s menu is available daily as well. Saltimibocca is located at 14820 South Military Trail in Delray Beach (561-455-4390). This new Italian restaurant , an elegant modern setting with beige/brown décor offers both tables and booths. A singer performs music of Tony Martin, Frank Sinatra et al each Thursday night from 7PM to 10PM. Pricing for food and wine is a bit upscale – we feel the general portions of superb food make this pricing reasonable. Obviously, we suggest that you…Go and Enjoy!

Halli’s Comments

Halli Moore

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-approved 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.

Nordstrom Reveals its Own Beauty Makeover

Marcella Cerabono from Bobbi Brown does the makeup of Christina Cossio Hello gorgeous!! Nordstrom Boca Raton recently revealed its glamorous new cosmetics department. The makeover features beautiful bright light fixtures, spacious walking areas and a plethora of the best beauty brands displayed in a userfriendly fashion. To celebrate the department’s glamorous new look, the store hosted a Beauty on Location event, where each brand showcased the newest products with makeovers, demonstrations and special appearances. Bobbi Brown’s Global Artist, Rogelio Reyna, was also there with his team talking about the newest products Brown is launching. “The customers are raving,” said Christopher Coles, Nordstrom’s cosmetics manager. “The makeover took us about 2 months to complete, and we are so thrilled with the design.  It’s modern, fresh, friendly, very open, and it was designed to meet all ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) requirements.” As we walked through the department, you could see the incredible attention to detail that went into creating each counter.  The layouts are visually stunning and the accessibility makes shopping fun and inviting.  Coles made special note of the incredible emphasis placed on the skin care section and the artistry brands, which include Stila, Kevyn Aucoin, Vincent Longo, and Winks Lashes by Georgie Beauty. “Boca women want the next big thing,” he said. “The women are very smart, they ask a lot of questions and they want exclusives. Skin care is very important to them, so we made sure to provide a lot of depth in that area. In addition, women here like to try many different lines. They want to experiment. They are very savvy. And they are also great makeup artists themselves.” That day the store was overflowing with innumerable Boca women, plus ladies who drove all the way from Miami and Palm Beach to see the new department and to partake in the shopping bonuses including snatching up a jazzy red tote bag with a purchase of $125 or more. Many tote hold-

ing gals were lined up by the Bobbi Brown counter to get their chance for a makeover with Rogelio Reyna and his team. The Global Artist had lots of tips to share and was enthusiastically chatting about Bobbi Brown’s latest book, Pretty Powerful.  “I love the book,” said Reyna. “It’s very inspirational. In it celebrities, athletes and real women share what beauty means to them.” The book also offers Bobbi’s incredibly smart tips for celebrating your own individuality. “For this season, Bobbi is focusing on the basics,” he continued. “Today, I am showing the women here how to select the right natural colors for them. The earth tones, the pinks, the roses, the suedes. And how to mix and match to create what you like.” Foundation is also a big issue in Florida. Beauty meltdowns due to heat and humidity are year-round problems, so Reyna was quick to showcase the Longwear Foundation. “This is really amazing,” he said. “It lasts 12 hours, is sweat proof, but it hydrates and feels incredible on your skin.” Another hot topic was the BB cream. Beauty magazines are buzzing about these so-called blemish balms or beauty balms depending on the ingredients. The craze started in Asia, explained Reyna, and they are now the hot thing in cosmetics as they blend tinted moisturizers with SPF and skin care ingredients.  Reyna explained that Brown’s BB, helps with many skin issues including acne, oiliness, hydration, aging and more. It comes in 5 skin tone correct colors. “It looks like skin,” he said. “And it really perfects the skin. So you can use it alone or you can use it under your foundation.” “I love it,” said shopper Maureen Walker. “I came just to see what the new department was like and am leaving with an incredible new product.” Nordstrom Boca is planning another event like this November 9 and 10, but even bigger. South Florida shoppers already have their calendars marked!

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

THE CITIZENS VOICE By Al Zucaro

Popularity Contest or Substantive Debate…. A few weeks ago, two things occurred that brought the District 89 State Representative race between incumbent Bill Hager and challenger former Speaker of the Florida House, Tom Gustafson, into the proverbial spotlight. The first was receiving an invitation for a fund raiser that had many local political names endorsing Bill Hager to represents the interests of Boca Raton and 15 other municipalities along the coastline from Fort Lauderdale to Riviera Beach. The second item was the entry into the District 89 race of Tom Gustafson, a name that may be remembered from his days in the Florida legislature as its Speaker and as an expert on issues directly related to coastal communities and environmental concern. Well, with Boca Raton politics being what they are, one can only wonder the reasons for such an overwhelming one sided early political endorsement. To begin, this is a partisan race. Hager is a republican with a partisan reputation as evidenced by the issue statements posted on his campaign website. see www.billhager.org/meet-Bill . Bill is well known in the local community. He was a former City Council member and Deputy Mayor; he was a businessman in the community serving as President and CEO of NCCI in the 1990s; he was a family man in District 89 for over 20 years; and he has been highly visible amongst the social and cocktail set of Boca Raton for a very long tim Since being elected to the House in 2010, he has served on 5 committees including one of particular note to Boca Raton; to wit: the Transportation and Highway Safety Subcommittee. Other committees are the Judiciary, the Insurance and Banking, the Pre K Appropriations, and the Civil Justice Subcommittees. In researching the legislation he has championed that may be relevant to these Boca Raton endorsements, there is little to report. Besides being somewhat vocal in the insurance area and calling for the end to Citizens’ Insurance, opting in favor of a free market model, there is not much to report relevant to the issues here in Boca Raton. In the issues section of his website there is no mention of urban redevelopment, planned mobility, density, congestion, or transportation. There is also no mention of coastal environmental concerns, beach restoration, or inland navigation matters, items of great import to Boca Raton as well as the other coastal communities within the district. Shifting Sands….. Tom Gustafson presents a somewhat different picture. In this partisan race, he is a democrat. However, his legislative reputation and history demonstrates a political personality that can and has reached across the aisle as necessary to get the job done. In 1990, after having served in the Florida House for 14 years with 2 years as speaker, Tom left politics to follow what has been his focus for over 30 years now. Tom

Municipal News

is an often sought after speaker on many topics related to transportation funding opportunities, sustainable development and livable communities. His political and academic accomplishments are remarkable and too voluminous to list here. Suffice it to say that he has touched our lives on the local, state, and federal levels for many years. To see the details visit http://cake.fiu.edu/TIGER2012/bio/Gustafson.pdf . In the last few weeks, Tom has inserted himself to understand Boca Raton’s issues with planned mobility. He commends Charlie Seimon’s amendment proposals but recognizes that the community is not prepared, not educated and not ready to accept these items on face value. He has already begun to bring forward ideas to reduce the angst amongst citizens while keeping in mind the developers’ needs and desires. His inherent understanding of these issues is demonstrably evident to anyone who will take the time to discuss these matters with him. Elections have consequences…. It seems that there is a lot yet to learn about the District 89 race and the two candidates seeking the office. Citizens may find additional items to reinforce their belief that the council’s action rushing through increases in density is simply wrong. Citizens are demanding the benefit of further community discussion and further dialogue. Perhaps the District 89 State Representative race is the perfect opportunity to do just that. Council members would be well served by calling for a debate between the candidates. After all, as seen in the Archstone litigation, it is the State Legislature that passes laws which become subject to challenges in the local communities. It seems that before our elected leaders endorse one candidate, especially one that is not being heard on the issues of the day here in Boca Raton, the council should give the citizens opportunity to explore which candidate would better serve the citizens’ interests. At a recent Homeowner Association Council meeting, both candidates were given five minutes to address the audience. This interaction displayed differences in style, understanding and platforms mostly on the Citizens’ Insurance question. However, what was apparent is that whichever candidate wins the seat, the winner’s effectiveness in Tallahassee will have direct impacts on our community, the great city of Boca Raton…. Like a salmon swimming up stream, this writer believes that Tom Gustafson is the better candidate to represent our interests. He is better prepared, better informed and the better spokesperson on the issues of greatest impact to the citizens of Boca Raton in this next upcoming legislative session. So back to the original question, popularity contest or substantive debate….I vote for substantive debate…. Al Zucaro

Boca Police Safety Tip

Q:  My neighbor’s dog barks at all hours of the night.  Is there anything I can do about it? A:  Section 10-60 of the Boca Raton municipal code states that it is unlawful to keep or maintain any dog, cat, bird or other animal that habitually howls, barks, meows or squawks.  The city manager or designee will investigate and enforce this law if the complainant provides sworn affidavits by 2 unrelated residents living in separate dwellings in close vicinity or 1 sworn affidavit of complaint accompanied by time/date stamped video footage of active violations. Crime and safety questions are answered by officers from the Crime Prevention Unit. For more information, visit www.bocapolice.com.

Notes from PBSC: Writing an Effective Job Description By Palm Beach State College Small Business D e ve l o p m e n t Center BOCA RATON -- Are you looking to expand your workforce but having a hard time finding the right fit? An effective job description can help define roles and expectations to find your perfect employee.      Job descriptions also: • Help attract the right job candidates • Describe the major areas of an employee’s job or position • Serve as a major basis for outlining performance expectations, job training, job evaluation and career advancement • Provide a reference point for compensation decisions and unfair hiring practices Overview • A job description should be practical, clear and accurate to effectively define your needs. Good job descriptions typically begin with a careful analysis of the impor-

tant facts about a job such as: • Individual tasks involved • The methods used to complete the tasks • The purpose and responsibilities of the job • The relationship of the job to other jobs • Qualifications needed for the job What to Avoid • Don’t be inflexible with your job description. Jobs are subject to change for personal growth, organizational development and/ or evolution of new technologies. A flexible job description encourages employees to grow within their position and contribute over time to your overall business.  What to Include • Job descriptions typically include: • Job title • Job objective or overall purpose statement • Summary of the general nature and level of the job • Description of the broad function and scope of the position • List of duties or tasks performed critical to success

• Key functional and relational responsibilities in order of significance • Description of the relationships and roles within the company, including supervisory positions, subordinating roles and other working relationships Additional Items for Recruiting Situations: • Job specifications, standards, and requirements • Job location where the work will be performed • Equipment to be used in the performance of the job • Collective bargaining agreements if your company’s employees are members of a union • Salary range Proper Language in the Job Description • Keep each statement in the job description crisp and clear: • Structure your sentences in classic verb/ object and explanatory phrases. • Since the occupant of the job is the subject of your sentence, it may be eliminated. For example, a sentence pertaining to

the description of a receptionist position might read: “Greets office visitors and personnel in a friendly and sincere manner.” • Always use the present tense of verbs. • If necessary, use explanatory phrases telling why, how, where, or how often to add meaning and clarity (e.g. “Collects all employee time sheets on a bi-weekly basis for payroll purposes.”) • Omit any unnecessary articles such as “a,” “an,” “the,” or other words for an easyto-understand description. • Use unbiased terminology. For example, use the he/she approach or construct sentences in such a way that gender pronouns are not required. • Avoid using adverbs or adjectives that are subject to interpretation such as “frequently,” “some,” “complex,” “occasional,” and “several.” For more on this topic, or for no-cost consulting with certified business analysts, including growth acceleration consultants and PTAC specialists, contact the SBDC at  561-862-4726 or email sbdc@palmbeachstate.edu

CARLO BARBIERI By Carlo Barbieri

America is Still the Best Place for Nations to do Business The global recession continues to sap the economic strength of many nations. If you’re an international entrepreneur looking for a stable place to invest your money, there’s no better choice than the United States. Certainly, the economy in the US, like that of many other countries, continues to sputter along with frustratingly high unemployment and sluggish GDP growth. But the American economy has always bounced back from economic slowdowns with renewed strength. America’s influence on business culture across the globe is unmistakable. This can be seen more clearly through examination of key concepts and values of the American culture: Individualism - The concept of individualism in the US plays a significant role in the lives of many Americans. The nation’s culture emphasizes individual initiative and personal achievement. Independence and self-reliance are highly valued, and this also extends to the workplace where business is frequently carried out autonomously. Consequently, one’s position in US society is determined by one’s own achievements as opposed to status or age. This is particularly important during an economic downturn. Some businesses have fallen on hard times while others continue to prosper. In the US, the government often plays an important role, offering initiatives or easing regulations to spur business growth. Low context culture – Generally speaking, those cultures described as low context tend to communicate meaning and information explicitly through words. Americans are task-centered; thus, the primary purpose of communication is to exchange information, facts and opinions. In the US, conflict is dealt with directly and openly, and for this reason, Americans will not hesitate to say “no” or criticize others in public. This direct style of speech is often interpreted by foreign visitors as rude and may cause embarrassment to business people who are unaccustomed to such explicit communication. However, it is important to remember that in a business context it bears no relation to personal feelings and should not be taken as such. Multibillionaire businessman Donald Trump begins his popular “Apprentice” television program with the quote: “It’s not personal, it’s just business.” Egalitarianism – An important element of American culture is the concept of equality. Despite the many differences within American society, there is a collective understanding of the notion of equality that underlines many social relationships in the US. Americans believe in having equal rights, equal social obligations and equal opportunities based on the

Business

concept of individual merit. Consequently, there is a general lack of deference in the US to people of greater wealth, age, higher social status or authority. This is evident in the way in which titles are seldom used in business environments and how Americans call each other by their first names almost immediately. Egalitarianism also contributes to the system of merit frequently referred to as the “American Dream,” in which hard work is rewarded with success and financial prosperity. This concept has been muddied recently during the presidential campaign. President Obama, in a recent speech, indicated that business people did not succeed on their own, but were aided by another entity or person. “You didn’t build that on your own,” he said to citizens, many of whom have started successful enterprises or retired after selling one off. While Obama has tried to backtrack from that line, it has been picked up and used by presidential hopeful Mitt Romney against his foe. Many business people have also responded with signs at their firms proudly stating, “I built this.” Indeed, the economy of the United States is build on the strength of small businesses. And while the recession may have slowed growth, this, too, shall pass and the United States will return to its pre-eminent position in the world market. America has a long history of economic stability, one that has endured through two world wars, a war between the North and South, and conflicts in Korea, Vietnam, Afghanistan and Iraq. It is that history of stability that, even now, draws investors from China and other Asian nations. Brazil has a thriving trade with the US as well. America also has a culture of taking care of its own. Even while unemployment remains high and people lose medical health coverage, the government steps in with unemployment payments, food stamps and Medicaid. Elders depend on Social Security and Medicare – all government programs. And while these programs often draw criticism among those in American political office as being too generous or encouraging laziness, at the end of the day, these services prevail. To criticize is the right of every US citizen under the Constitution – a document that grants a level of freedom few other nations have. American businesses have always found a way to survive the most difficult financial times. Even now, they are finding solutions to their problems as they adapt to a new world order. Today, the US is considered to have the strongest and most technologically powerful economy. Investments in America are likely to endure and thrive.

John Hancock Financial to Lease 15,000 Square Feet at West Camino Center BOCA RATON -- The John Hancock Financial Network/The Partners Network has signed a 10-year, 10-month lease for some 15,000 square feet at the Fountains Center office and retail park in Boca Raton. The company will occupy the entire third floor of the 7700 building at 7700 West Camino Real. The building will be renamed The John Hancock Financial Network@7700. An early December move is planned. Richard T. Cleary, president and managing partner of The Partners Network, said this will be a relocation from its current location two blocks away. The Partners Network was represented in the office lease transaction by Mark Rubin of Newmark Grubb Knight Frank, a leading commercial real estate advisory and services firm. Cleary said he met with Zvi Schwarzman, managing partner for Boca Medical Plaza, LLC, the Fountains Center’s new ownership group,

and Patrick Watson Hogan of ZVI Construction, who was the “go-to guy” for working out all the lease details. “The experience has been a good one,” he pointed out.  Boca Medical Plaza, LLC acquired the mixed-use center (then known as The Fountains at Camino) in February 2012. The investor group changed the center’s name and committed substantial dollars to enhance and stabilize it in order to attract new tenants and increase its value. Major capital improvements are under way, including renovations and new interior build-outs for the many offices, executive suites, retail space and restaurants. Exterior enhancements are being made as well. “We are extremely excited to be moving our offices to Fountains Center because of all of the great changes and updates the new owners are delivering. We believe Fountains Plaza will become one of the key business plazas in the Boca Raton area,” added Cleary. John Hancock Financial Network/ The Partners Network specializes in helping individuals and businesses with their insurance and wealth management needs.

WHAT BUSINESS ARE YOU IN?™ By Gerald J. Sherman

Marketing & PR Campaigns  We will soon be experiencing another historic event – the presidential election on Tuesday, November 6. The debates have already begun. The political parties are constantly getting positive words out to the public to get the votes and they do this with planned marketing and public relations campaigns. Campaigns come in various styles, designs and formats. We have political, military recruiting campaigns and the all-important business campaigns to name a few. Is there a commonality that makes one campaign a success and another a failure? The secret formula for success is superior marketing and the secret ingredient is high-quality PR and consistent advertising. In 2008, the United States of America experienced the ultimate representation of marketing and PR in the political campaigns to elect a president. It was one of the most intense, complex and expensive campaign exercises we have ever experienced. To reach their goal and target markets, both parties’ strategies involved enormous research, planning, appropriating proper personnel, acquiring financial resources and executing and measuring results. During the campaign the political teams targeted segments of the population, analyzed their needs and offered plans to solve their problems. The expenditures in these political campaigns ran into the high millions (and it is estimated that this 2012 presidential campaign will be in the billions). The decisions on where to spend the advertising dollars and achieving positive media coverage follow the same thinking and planning that one would do in planning any type of campaign. Timing, personnel and using the proper form of media is essential. The results of careful planning and effective implementation thereof will determine whether the campaign is successful. The marketing and public relations campaign starts off with organizing a plan. Planning is the key to getting the job done. This planning procedure

must include the goals, courses of action, funding, research and a system of measurements as an integrated approach to the campaign. The initial overview of the campaign must be spelled out with the specific goals and a plan for how to reach them. A clear definition of what are to be the results is paramount to the whole procedure. We can look at the planning stage as a ladder with ten steps—you can’t go to the second step until you’ve stepped on the first one, you can’t go to the third until you’ve stepped on the second, and so on—which culminates at a completed campaign plan: • Marketing and  public relations campaign overview including analysis. • Establish plans, goals and objectives • Establish target market/s • Establish a budget • Establish strategies • Assign people who will participate listing specific responsibilities, functions, and duties • Timing  –  establishing starting and completion times • Develop the message • Decide on how to deliver the message – TV, radio, print media, direct mail, Internet, social media, events • Develop a method to measure performance So you see that your individual business, like the business of government, must incorporate these principles in your campaign. Presumably some of the smartest brainpower in government are using these procedures, so why not take advantage of their knowledge and follow suit in your business.

FAITH

DIVORCE FLORIDA STYLE

By Rick Warren

By Mike Gora

How To Confront A Crisis There is a humorous story about a woman that won a huge fortune in a state-run lottery. Upon receiving the news, she called home to her live-in boyfriend and told him, “I have just won the lottery! Start packing!” Her boyfriend replied, “That’s fantastic! Should I pack for warm or cold weather?” She answered without emotion, “I don’t care – just as long as you are out of the house by the time I get home!”  That man had a crisis! And that is the way many crises are – they arrive totally unexpected, finding us completely unprepared for dealing with them. Like it or not, unexpected crises are a part of life. And at this exact moment you are in one of three phases: Either you just got out of a crisis; you are in a crisis right now; or you are headed into a crisis. There is a fascinating story of a shipwreck in the New Testament of the Bible (Acts 27), from which we can glean three timeless insights for crisis management that you can apply directly to your business: DETERMINE THE REASON. Ask yourself, “What is really the reason behind this crisis?” The cause is often deeper than what appears on the surface. In the case of the shipwreck recounted by the apostle Paul in the book of Acts, three reasons are cited: (1) They listened to bad advice; (2) they followed popular opinion, and (3) they relied on circumstances rather than what they knew was the right thing to do. If you are having difficulty sorting out the reason for a crisis – try praying about it. King David of Israel wrote, “I tried to think this problem through but it was too difficult for me until I went into Your

Columnists

temple”  (Psalm 18:16). DETERMINE THE RESULT. Second, ask yourself, “What can I learn from this?” Every crisis is an opportunity to enlarge my perspective, sharpen my skills, and develop my character. DETERMINE YOUR RESPONSE. And third, ask yourself: “What is the best way to respond to this?” Regardless of what else you do, your response should include three elements: • Confront the problem. You rarely solve a problem by ignoring it. It probably will not be easy, but God will be with you if you ask Him for strength. • Confess your part (if any). If you brought this crisis on yourself, admit it and ask forgiveness. Do not make excuses, and do not shift blame to others. Accepting responsibility is a mark of genuine leadership and emotional maturity.   • Claim a promise. Did you know in the Bible there are more 7,000 promises from God to help you?  They are like blank checks waiting to be filled in. What are you waiting on? If you do not know the Bible very well, ask a friend who does to help in finding a promise that applies to your situation.   God makes one such promise in Philippians 4:6-7, where He tells us, “Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”

At the Mall, and to the Max I love the Town Center mall.  I don’t shop a lot, but when I do… that is where you can find me.  And there I was one recent evening in search of presents for my secretary and paralegal.  My wife Bonnie was at my side, as I am not to be trusted in shopping for women’s gifts Earlier in the week a vendor that I use in my law practice had sent me a $100 gift card to The Capitol Grille, one of my favorites when I receive a gift card.  The steak was excellent and the bill, plus tip only $72 more than the value of the card. It was the side show that caught our attention.  An older couple and a younger, perhaps the older couple’s son and daughter-in-law, were seated next to our table for the older woman’s birthday.  We are always tolerant of our senior snowbirds from the Northeast whose less than dulcet tones occasionally interrupt our own conversation with complaints of a table location and other restaurant features.  We knew that when we came for dinner at a 6 p.m. time for pre-shopping purposes, we would not be dining, but using our gift card to get into the holiday spirit. We ordered a couple of nice glasses of wine and it was clear the folks next to us were doing the same, except for the condo-blonde mom, who, according to my wife, had ordered a martini. What caught our attention was the refill.  When the martini was consumed, the woman took a container out of her designer purse and filled

her martini glass with something that looked like a Cosmo.  When questioned by her family, her loud reply was that, “all of my friends do that. Why should I pay another $15.00?” We settled up and left for shopping at Nordstrom’s, one of our favorite stores and a good place to buy women’s items in our price range. On the way we noticed that one of the mall’s art galleries featured a personal appearance by Peter Max. While neither of us had any interest in Max or his work, we thought it might be fun to look at the gallery’s stock of the brightly colored, popular work of one of the few American Artists who has managed to make a good living with marginal work and top notch promotion. (Just our opinions.) Actually seeing this iconic figure might be fun as well. As you might know by now photography is one of my hobbies, and I approached Peter with my iPhone camera at the ready.  He was less than cooperative.  Sticking his hand up between himself and my tiny lens, he shouted, “No, no.”  I did take a photograph, and I guarantee you I will not publish it in the Tribune, and the photo will not make my website. It dawned on us as we drove home that the subject matter of a large portion of the money made by Peter Max through his sales of paintings and reproductions peddled during his career were of a subject that was owned by us, and by you, through our government: The Statute of Liberty, a small National Park supported by our taxes.  Perhaps he forgot.

Miami HEAT 2012-2013 Season Preview

By: Pedro Heizer The 25th season of Miami Heat basketball will kick off October 30th as the Defending NBA Champions face the Boston Celtics at the American Airlines Arena as LeBron James will finally receive his elusive first championship ring, and Dwyane Wade will add another one to his collection. After yet another terrific offseason orchestrated by Heat president Pat Riley, the Miami Heat were able to sign one of the biggest sought-after free agents, Ray Allen. Allen comes to the NBA Champions after spending the past five seasons with the Boston Celtics. Allen rejected a two-year $12 Million deal by Boston and came to Miami for much less. Not only did Miami sign Ray Allen, but they also landed his former teammate from Seattle, Rashard Lewis. Unlike the previous season after a championship run, the Heat got better this offseason with Allen and Lewis. Both are lethal from beyond the 3-point line and they will join Mike Miller, James Jones and Shane Battier and let threes rain from downtown at the American Airlines Arena this season. Below is the 2012-2013 Season Preview: Starting Five: • Mario Chalmers • Dwyane Wade • Udonis Haslem • LeBron James • Chris Bosh During media day, Bosh said he was finally at peace with the idea of playing center for the Heat. Personally, Haslem would be much better off in a starting role like he used to be before the Big Three and having players like Joel Anthony and Dexter Pittman come off the bench would be a huge boost for the team. Probably the shocker everyone reading this sees is having Ray Allen on the bench. Well, Ray Allen will be a reserve for the first time in his career, but that’s

the sacrifice he wanted to make in order to join the defending champions. This in no way means Allen will only play with the second unit, he will clearly play with LeBron, Bosh, and Wade but having him start would hurt the team. Most people out there want to move Wade to point guard and have Allen be the starting shooting guard but that’s not a good idea. Wade is not a point guard, he tried that his rookie season and it didn’t work out. They tried again in the Beasley era and it failed once again. Wade is a shooting guard, and one of the best, so don’t fix what’s not broken. Chalmers has earned his spot as the starting point guard of the team and so putting anyone else but Chalmers at the helm would not be a good idea. Yes, LeBron will handle the ball most of the time and Cole is a better player for the run-and-gun offence Miami likes to run, but Chalmers is a hard-nosed defender and is not afraid of taking the big shot if Coach Spoelstra calls his number. Key Reserves: • Ray Allen • Shane Battier • Norris Cole • James Jones • Mike Miller • Joel Anthony Significant Off-Season Additions: • Ray Allen • Rashard Lewis Significant Off-Season Losses: • Ronny Turiaf • Juwan Howard Man on the Hot Seat: Dexter Pittman It’s no surprise that the Miami Heat organization is frustrated with the development of Dexter Pittman. Pittman was supposed to be the center of the future for Miami but so far he has not stepped up to the plate when he’s given opportunities. During the offseason, a Heat official said the team was disappointed in Dex-

New offseason acquisitions Rashard Lewis (9) and Ray Allen (34) pose with Dwyane Wade (3), LeBron James (6), and Chris Bosh (1) at Miami Heat Media Day ter Pittman’s summer league work and “this is a crucial training camp for him. But the slate is clear.” Pittman has a guaranteed contract ($854,389) and seems likely to stick but has been assured nothing. He must prove to Coach Erik Spoelstra and the rest of the organization that he’s the man for the job. He needs to be the Dexter Pittman that played with the Texas Longhorns. Biggest Question: Will there be a “Championship Hangover”? The bitter taste of the 108-66 debacle to start the 2006 NBA season to the hands of the Chicago Bulls is still in the mouth of many Heat faithful. In fact, that entire season was a mess and it felt like the Heat were still in a hangover from the championship they won the previous season. This time around things must be dif-

ferent. Wade and Haslem, the only two players remaining from the 2006 championship and the debacle the year after, need to set the tone early and show the team that a championship hangover is something they can’t afford this time around. Yes, this Miami Heat team is a very different one from the one that won it six years ago, and that will work to their advantage but Miami needs to get out of the gates guns blazing versus the Boston Celtics on October 30 and they can’t let up one minute this season. It’s like Chris Bosh said at media day, “We will now have an ever bigger target behind our backs.” 2012/13 Record: 68-14 (1st seed in the East, 1st in the southeast division) Playoff Prediction: Beat Los Angeles Lakers in NBA Finals (4-2)

Strikers Finish 2012 Season With 3-1 Loss in NASL Playoffs

The Fort Lauderdale Strikers 2012 season ended with a 3-1 loss to the Carolina RailHawks in the first round of the NASL Playoffs at WakeMed Soccer Park in Cary, N.C. on Saturday night in front of 2,534 fans. Forward Abe Thompson scored the lone goal for the Strikers with Carolina getting two goals from Ty Shipalane and another from Amir Lowery in the victory. The Strikers reached the NASL Playoffs for the second straight season after finishing the 2012 regular season with a record of 9-10-9 with 36 points.  “When we made it 2-1 we thought we’d get back into it, but we gave the game away with a couple of mis-

Sports

takes,” said Strikers head coach Daryl Shore. “We won’t make any excuses for ourselves. We weren’t good enough tonight and it’s a disappointing end to the season, but we’ll regroup and hopefully be back next year.” The Strikers were forced to go to their bench early in the match when in the 18th minute, forward Andy Herron appeared to injure his leg and Abe Thompson was substituted into the game.  The Carolina RailHawks took the lead in the 34th minute when Jason Garey took a turnover into the penalty area and spun around a defender to find Amir Lowery whose shot found the back of the net for a 1-0 lead.

After halftime, the RailHawks extended the lead to 2-0 when Brian Shriver made a run down the left sideline and crossed to Nick Zimmerman who found a cutting Ty Shipalane. His shot was deflected by the leg of Strikers goalkeeper Matt Glaeser, but still went into the net in the 52nd minute. Fort Lauderdale would make it 2-1 in the 61st minute when Lance Laing sent a cross into the penalty area where forward Abe Thompson controlled the ball with his chest and placed his shot over the head of Carolina goalkeeper Ray Burse and into the net. The goal was the 18th of Thompson’s career with the Strikers, putting him in a tie with Romario for the

franchise’s all-time record for goals. Carolina would re-establish their twogoal lead in the 67th minute when Ty Shipalane scored his second goal of the game. This one coming on a pass from former Striker Brian Shriver. The Strikers would substitute attackers Darnell King and Aly Alberto Hassan into the match to produce additional scoring chances, but were unable to score again. Fort Lauderdale goalkeeper Matt Glaeser made several dramatic saves to keep the Strikers’ hopes alive in the match, including stopping two one-onone chances for the RailHawks to take a three-goal lead.
