The Rotary Club Boca Raton, and the Rotary Club Boca Raton West once again joined forces and made the Sixth Annual Carousel Day a tremendous success. Hundreds of Boca Raton residents came by to Sugar Sand Park this year to donate toys, enjoy hot dogs, hamburgers, and a great time with the family. Something that was extra special this

year to the Annual Carousel Drive was the special appearance by Santa Claus. Yes, the jolly old man from the North Pole took time off his busy schedule to come down to Boca Raton and meet the kids of the city with his joyful smile. The thousands of toys that were collected will be donated to the Wayne Barton Study Center as they distribute them dur-

ing their Christmas Party later this month. This is all thanks to you, the residents of Boca Raton. The Boca Raton Tribune had constant updates of the toy drive on their facebook and twitter accounts and their faithful readers came out in huge numbers with toys to support this amazing cause.

Lynn Students to attend President Obama’s Re-inauguration BOCA RATON -- Fifteen Lynn University students will travel to Washington D.C. Jan. 14 – 21 to observe the re-inauguration of the nation’s 44th president, Barack Obama. The trip marks the conclusion of the 400 level January Term (JTerm) course, “Witness to History: The 2013 Presidential Inauguration in Washington, D.C.” taught by Sindee Kerker, associate professor of criminal justice in Lynn’s College of Liberal Education. Kerker, who made a similar trip to D.C. to observe Obama’s inauguration four years ago, will accompany the students. J.J. Dawson, president of Lynn’s Democratic Club and Eric Gooden, Obama’s stand-in for the third and final presidential debate held on campus Oct. 22, are among the 15 students attending.

“The students are more engaged this year since Lynn hosted the third presidential debate,” said Kerker. “They volunteered for the debate, enrolled in debate related courses and many assisted political campaigns and participated in rallies.” As required by the United States Constitution, Obama’s swearing-in ceremony is normally held on Jan. 20. Because Jan. 20 falls on a Sunday this year, the outdoor ceremony will fall on Monday, Jan. 21 – which also happens to be Martin Luther King, Jr. Day.

Lynn students are shown at President Barack Obama’s first inaugural in 2009.

Before the class departs for D.C. on Jan. 14, students will meet on campus to discuss the media’s impact on the political process, the results of the 2012 presidential and congressional elections and the importance of the president’s relationship with other political branches of the U.S. government, among other topics.

FAU Presents Madrigal Dinner as Holiday Tradition BOCA RATON – The department of music in Florida Atlantic University’s Dorothy F. Schmidt College of Arts and Letters continues its holiday tradition in presenting the second annual Madrigal Dinner at St. Jude Parish Life Center, 21689 Toledo Road, Boca Raton on Sunday, Dec. 9 at 6 p.m.

lowing a cocktail hour, guests will be invited into the dining room and seated at their tables. The king and queen will then enter the room leading a procession of their noble guests, which will include FAU’s madrigal singers, costumed true to the period.

The event reflects a Renaissance evening full of pageantry and entertainment, including a court jester, wandering minstrels and other characters, as well as food and music. “Our first Madrigal Dinner was such a success last year that we decided to make it a holiday tradition and annual fundraising event for FAU’s choral and vocal studies program,” said Patti Fleitas, director of FAU’s vocal studies program. The dinner is modeled after the feasts of the Renaissance when Lords and Ladies of large manors would prepare huge holiday celebrations. FolCommunity News

A full-course meal will be served with instrumental fanfares announcing meal courses and events. Following dinner, a concert of seasonal and madrigal music will entertain guests. Reservations for the dinner may be made by calling 561-297-2337 or visiting fauf.fau.edu/madrigal. www.bocaratontribune.com

Connecting the Dots of Boca Raton’s Future

This is the bonus article in a 6-part series from One Boca, One Future spotlighting the City of Boca Raton’s most valuable yet under-realized growth area: The Northwest Sector, the space on the map between I-95 and Military Trail, Clint Moore Road and Spanish River Blvd. Boca Raton has the leading-edge attributes any 21st Century city would want. It has a bustling and growing technology, healthcare and professional corporate base. Its employers provide high-wage careers to skilled employees coming out of area colleges and universities. Those employers, as well as community planners, forward-thinking civic leaders, area developers and other stakeholders jointly pursue a common vision of planned development and long-term sustainability. Together, these elements and infrastructure exist as dots that when connected create a model of how tomorrow’s best and brightest communities can thrive in an evolving global marketplace. As a result, the spate of business development, new construction and job growth leads to a fertile tax base that benefits the entire community and brightens future opportunities. As urban planners around the country visualize the nature of planned live / work / learn / play communities, Boca Raton could become the roadmap. Boca Raton isn’t alone in recognizing this profile. In 2008, the Northwest sector was identified as being “in a state of evolution,” according to the 2008 land use and urban form study from urban planning firm Glatting Jackson Kercher Anglin. Though the area is zoned for light industrial uses, plans for retail and luxury residential development could provide employees of area company’s suitable housing that otherwise are

found only in nearby cities a commute away. Central to the city’s success has been the collaborative relationships between all its leaders – residents, educators, civic leaders and stakeholders. This was revealed most recently with the third annual MedUTech forum and program. Bringing together innovators from Boca Raton’s and Palm Beach County’s medical / healthcare, educational and technology sectors, the event has become a showcase for the region’s innovative pursuits – with Boca Raton as the anchor. MedUTech had much to cover. From prekindergarten through graduate programs, the educational system is actively fueling the workplace with educated workers, espe-

Technological advancements developed locally are changing the global marketplace for industry and consumer applications. A growing sustainability construct is starting to brand the entire Western Central

(Town Center, Florida Atlantic University and Boca Raton Regional Hospital) and Northwest Boca Raton sectors. Initiatives that have embraced high levels of international and national sustainability certification processes include the Allianz Championship at The Broken Sound Club, Lynn Financial Center, Office Depot’s global headquarters, Lynn University, and the FAU College of Engineering, among others. Plans for the Northwest Sector incorporate planned mobility. Local transit options will reduce commuting’s impact on local roadways and the environment and encourage synergies between workplace, retail and residential markets. Communities created to enable people to live in proximity to both the workplace and retail options allow for collaboration, networking and a more green way of life. The model sets the stage for community longevity. Families demand more opportunities for their children and grandchildren to excel and expect a greater myriad of educational opportunities. Graduates from local colleges and even the medical schools become high-wage employees, who rent luxury garden apartments near their workplaces in the Northwest Sector. They eventually buy homes, raise families, send their children to A-rated schools – all of which fuel a city’s engine and sustain the community’s lifecycle. In fact, the infusion of such amenities serves as a magnet. Additional educated residents appreciate activities and cultural arts, which grow in kind. The new population base requires greater health resources and high-caliber medical care for residents – which often leads to “medical tourism” common in areas with leading-edge facilities found nowhere else in a region.

and national Mecca for medicine, technology, education, arts, culture and wide-spread economic prosperity creates a healthier and safer environment for residents and visitors. The city will continue to be recognized as a model community in which to live and raise a family. Desirable and trend setting, it will be studied and emulated by urban planners for the opportunities it creates for residents, visitors, students, the work force, consumers, retirees and all its stakeholders. In recent weeks, One Boca One Future has profiled the area’s changing demographics, its sustainability initiatives, and infrastructure improvements needed to propel the local area to becoming a remarkable community. Ultimately, what emerged was a roadmap to quality of life improvements and prosperity that re-emphasizes the city’s largest employment zone, broadcasts a “new way” to reinvent ourselves, and creates the community of the future. By connecting the dots from education to high-wage employment, and planned mobility development and walkable, sustainable communities in Boca Raton’s valuable yet under-realized Northwest Sector, the city becomes a lure for companies looking to relocate or grow here. Business prospects improve. By creating a robust community, an improved tax base funds the needs of the entire city through taxes on real property, retail, consumerism and general investment. Amid all the leading-edge attributes any 21st Century city would want is a roadmap to the how the city can become an example of a collaborative community of tomorrow – and the realization of One Boca One Future.

THOUGHTS FROM THE PUBLISHER By Douglas Heizer

We Encourage Sustainable, Well-Planned Growth in Boca Raton’s NW Sector For much of its existence, Boca Raton was a sleepy hamlet that came to life in winter with the arrival of tourists and pretty much hibernated through horrifically hot summers. Development began in earnest in the late 1950s and early 1960s with the arrival of housing mogul Arthur Vining Davis, the transformation of the old Boca Raton Army Airfield into a municipal airport and Florida Atlantic University and the influx of IBM buildings and Big Blue’s 10,000 workers who bought the houses that became the city’s early neighborhoods. Much has changed in 50-plus years. But the need for sustainable, organized, well-planned growth is still a necessity. On the table right now is a proposal from a development group touting the theme of “One Boca, One Future.” The publication of a five-part series of articles and advertisements has just been completed by the Boca Raton Tribune. These planners and thinkers have taken an overall look at Boca Raton, assessed its strengths, weighed its weaknesses and have devised a conceptual plan to breathe new life into the Northwest Sector – the area surrounded by I-95, Military Trail, Clint Moore Road and Spanish River Boulevard. This is the area of the so-called “Congress Avenue Corridor,” a road that ex-

tends north into Delray Beach. That city is also working to develop the road into a pathway for offices and light industry. One Boca, One Future is a blueprint for growth in an area that has been overlooked and underutilized. Many businesses call that area home, but the commercial, retail and industrial firms that normally spring up around such development have not kept pace. East Boca – the City Council’s target area for new development – has seen considerable growth, but it has been carefully controlled by local offiicals. That doesn’t mean there haven’t been squabbles with those who feel the growth is out of hand, but this is the type of debate that normally brings consensus. To the east, the city’s business corridor has office buildings, commercial plazas, restaurants and residences. More of that is needed in the NW corridor. One testament to the potential success of well-planned growth is Mizner Park, a complex of businesses, restaurants, cultural venues and residences. It came about in the late 1980s not only to replace the floundering Boca Raton Mall, but also to test the theory of multi-use development. In its time, Mizner Park has struggled, but with the commercial market improving – and with the city now directly involved in operations at some Mizner facilities – the

center is thriving. Many people still remember the arguments, the concerns, the hesitation, the lawsuits and the second-guessing that accompanied the development of Mizner Park. This facility is still an example of what can be done when decisions to move ahead are made, and made with conviction mixed with caution. And so we come to Boca Raton 2012. It is becoming a major player in South Florida. It houses three major higher educational institutions – one of which has a large football stadium – along with a famed regional hospital, miles of beaches, a favorable climate, headquarters of some major industries like Office Depot and luxurious homes in places like Broken Sound, Boca Bath & Tennis and St. Andrews Country Club. What is the future of Boca Raton – and where will it be centered? Those questions led those involved in One Boca, One Future to examine the NW Sector. Dozens of high-tech firms are located in places like the Arvida Park of Commerce and the former T-Rex Park. There is still much fallow land left from the IBM “pullout,” though the city has bought much of it and is developing de Hoernle Park. Much has been done to put this property on the commercial, retail and industrial radar screen, but still, lots of cars

drive quickly past big buildings en route to East Boca or other communities. Growth is needed. Some feel growth is still a bad word, but it is not. Growth is needed to provide the jobs for our children and grandchildren. Too often, locals go to school and college in Boca, then leave for employment opportunities elsewhere in the US. The goal of One Boca, One Future, is to make Boca a great place to live, work, play and shop. In the developers’ own words, “planned mobility and smart design are sustainable development concepts.” In addition, they said, the goal is to make Boca a destination. “Those who today commute from Delray Beach, Boynton Beach, West Palm Beach or throughout Broward County to the south instead will find suitable residential options [in Boca Raton] in keeping with their educated, ‘Millennial’ lifestyles. They will live close to work, support area businesses that enrich the tax base while establishing roots in the local community.” The Boca Raton Tribune stands by those who want the future of the great city to be fruitful and all-encompassing, with an inviting infrastructure that will draw jobs, businesses and residents to their “new home.”

POSITIVE LIVING By Dr. Synesio Lyra, Jr.

Wisdom is More Than Accumulated Information A wise person is a well-informed individual. Yet, the mere accumulation of information does not necessarily constitute wisdom. You may go to school for many years and learn all kinds of important and legitimate facts; you may devour important books and benefit from what you find in them. But wisdom is acquired differently and it entails other factors! Throughout my years I’ve encountered several persons who had an impressive academic baggage, but by observing their life and the decisions they often made, it was most obvious that they were devoid

of true wisdom! By the same token, I’ve also met quite a few people who had no academic credentials; some had not even finished elementary school. Nevertheless, in their dealings, in their demeanor, and by the results of many of their transactions, they demonstrated what wisdom entails. Ultimately, wisdom is the preferred path one should follow, the most important possession for one to acquire. It is reached through careful thinking, followed by sound choices led by that process. It entails gains as well as losses, additions but also subtractions!

One cannot accept whatever is said or written without first analyzing those ideas through a preestablished grid. Wisdom is reached by intelligent comparisons and contrasts; it demands solid discernment between a variety of options; it can never be attained without a prior understanding of the potential consequences of every action taken! Wisdom needs not to be limited to a small segment of the human race. It is available to any person regardless of age, anyone who seeks it diligently throughout life, and is eager to incorporate it in all the decision-making processes, and in

every aspect of one’s daily living, in things great or small! The Author of Life is also the Giver of Wisdom which He does not deny to anyone who diligently seeks it from Him. Like most products we utilize, it must be followed in accordance with the prescriptions offered, lest it ceases from being wisdom. It enables its practitioner to view life more realistically and to arrive at conclusions never before imagined. Among all credentials anyone could ever display, wisdom is the most essential and absolutely necessary!

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.

By Mike Gora

By Rick Warren

Good Leaders Are Good Listeners There is an old story about a young man who came to the celebrated Greek philosopher Socrates to receive instruction in public speaking and oratory. From the moment the young man was introduced to the great thinker, he began to talk in a non-stop flow of words. This continued for such an extended time that Socrates could not get a word in edge-wise. He finally silenced the young man by putting his hand over his mouth. “Young man,” said Socrates, “I am going to have to charge you a double fee for my training.” The man complained, “A double fee! Why would you do that?” Socrates replied, “Because to make you a good leader I will have to teach you two sciences: First, you must learn the science of holding your tongue; then you can learn the science of using it correctly!”

THE INTERROGATIVE LISTENER – This person thinks that good listening consists of continuously firing a series of questions at the person who is speaking. Questions are important to conversation, but interrupting with questions gets old very quickly. According to research, 26 percent of all people use this approach. 3. THE ADVICE-GIVING LISTENER – More people (35 percent) are in this category. They listen only long enough to make a quick assessment, and then they move toward what they really want to do – offer unsolicited advice. They do not really listen. They are not concentrating on everything you are saying; they hear only enough for them to respond.

VI ANNUAL ROTARY TOY DRIVE

The Rotary Club Boca Raton, and the Rotary Club Boca Raton West once again joined forces and made the Sixth Annual Carousel Day a tremendous success. Hundreds of Boca Raton residents came by to Sugar Sand Park this year to donate toys, enjoy hot dogs, hamburgers, and a great time with the family. Something that was extra special this year to the Annual Carousel Drive was the special appearance by Santa Claus.

and meet the kids of the city with his joyful smile. The thousands of toys that were collected will be donated to the Wayne Barton Study Center as they distribute them during their Christmas Party later this month. This is all thanks to you, the residents of Boca Raton.

Hopkins must have put on weight and he certainly was padded to resemble the rotund writer-director. More important are his vocal inflections and facial mannerisms. Hitchcock had a certain way of pursing his lips and drawing out his vowels, which Hopkins has down flat. But even more important than these physical manifestations is Hopkins’ recreation of the director’s intellectual insecurity and strong sexual peccadilloes.

Alma had plenty to be jealous of. Hitchcock had a penchant for falling in love with his leading ladies, and just as easily casting them off. We meet two of them in this film: “Psycho” star Janet Leigh, played with overwhelming sexual allure by Scarlett Johansson, and Vera Miles (Jessica Biel), an actress who spurned Hitchcock’s advances and was relegated to the thankless role of Janet Leigh’s sister.

Tickets $20 – $74

“Hitchcock” is set in California during the 1959 filming of Hitchcock’s most famous film, “Psycho.” The screenplay, written by John J. McLaughlin, is based on the non-fiction book “Alfred Hitchcock and the Making of Psycho” by Stephen Rebello. While there is plenty of behindthe-scenes details on what a struggle it was for Hitchcock to produce “Psycho” (he had to mortgage his house, among other things), “Hitchcock” is more basically an unusual love story between Hitchcock and his loyal, long-suffering and modestly brilliant wife, Alma Reville. Helen Mirren is a British actress

There are many small delights: Toni Collette as Hitchcock’s indispensable Gal Friday, James D’Arcy as prissy actor Anthony Perkins, Richard Portman as bellicose studio head Barney Balaban and Danny Huston as Alma’s writing partner, friend, and possibly more, Whitfield Cook. It is easy to castigate Hitchcock for his faults and foibles. Under the direction of Sacha Gervasi this is a fond, admiring tribute to an indisputable genius and the remarkable woman who was the power behind the throne.

TO INSTANTLY LOOK YOUNGER Sometimes We Can Actually Make Ourselves Look Older! These 7 Beauty Tips Instantly Give A More Youthful Look. Some things we do take days…hours…. weeks, even months, to help us appear younger looking. Then there are some things we go out of our way to do that make us look older. Here’s how to correct them: 1. An Oily or Shiny Face A shiny face actually makes the face look older because the shine plays up the wrinkles and lines on the face…oil or shine exaggerates them. Here is the answer “Powder down” to blend makeup colors and “take off the shine.” TRY THIS TEST: Before applying powder, stand sideways to a window while looking in a mirror and study your face…the lines will be more exaggerated.

Don’t forget that manufactures are there to sell – you have to pick and choose what flatters your face. Here is the answer. Remember, your eyes should steal the show…not the eye shadow. Here are some simple rules: 1. Wear more natural colors. My favorite is a soft off- white or light tone eye shadow on the lids and a brown or gray shade above the lids and a little above the eye bone . The off-white mostly blends into the eyelid skin after a short time to give a natural look 3. Purple, Black or Orange Lipstick These colors can be aging and distracting to the face in most cases. Here is the answer Maybe a soft orange is OK to fit a special garment color, but use a soft color orange if you must…one with a little brown tone in it – make sure your rouge color blends with the lipstick tone. Red should have a little blue color in it so it does not look orange. 4. Dull, Dry Hair Even if you have bleached or tinted hair, straightened hair or sun dried hair there are products on the market to get your hair back into shape. Dull, dry hair gives an older look to your overall appearance. Here’s the answer Apply a good Conditioner on hair and cover with a plastic cap then wrap towel around your head to hold the heat in. You can also apply a “gloss” on the hair after washing and drying it – this is a clear very light oil to make hair shine. You will love the more youthful and flattering look. 5. No eye make-up Going without eye make-up is fine if that is the look you like. But we look more youthful with at least a little eye make-up. It gives an alive look to our face as well as

You’ll also find 10 Real People Makeovers Before and After Step by Step. 6. No Rouge, Too Little Rouge or Putting It In The Wrong Place Well here is one of my problems – Often I worry about having too much rouge, or not enough. I often ask my husband to take a look before going out. Sometimes I have to go back and tone it down! Another rouge problem is WHERE to apply it. Here’s the answer When using rouge, apply it where the sun would make your face naturally rosy-except for the nose, of course--across the cheekbones, somewhat over and under them and tapered off toward the ears. Apply ever-so-little to the top of the forehead and up to the hairline blending so it is hardly noticeable. (Add a bit of color to your neck to make it look like it belongs to your face. See http://www.oleda.com/makeupschool/ for more instructions. 7. Poor Posture Ages you Never underestimate the beauty and health benefits, of good posture. Often poor posture is just a bad habit that is easily corrected. Poor posture not only makes you look older, but could be the first step toward dowager’s hump, double chin, potbelly, and swayback as well as some internal problems too.

Here’s the answer To correct poor posture we must be aware of our posture all of our waking hours for a few days or weeks. Make a point to stand straight with shoulders back… chin up not down for a more youthful look! Ask your best friend, your kids or husband to keep an eye on your posture and to let you know when you are not standing straight. This can help you get out of a bad habit. Don’t forget good posture when you are sitting for the very same reasons. Until next time, Love, Oleda To Learn The Correct Way to Apply Makeup.

BOCA RATON – University of South Florida student Stevan Fane Brenner of Boca Raton has championed the importance of preserving nature through his photography since he was in high school at North Broward Prep.

Christmas Eve Service

Son of the owners of Fort Lauderdale-based Brenner Real Estate Group, he has been clicking away under the artistic name of Stevan Fane Photography. He has now taken his environmentally conscious message to the photography industry and fashion worlds with the launch of a new organic clothing line, .RAWApparel, LLC. The line is marketed through Fane’s website, www.dotraw.com. The apparel is designed for photographers and nature enthusiasts to promote the use of raw materials and an organic, sustainable planet. Fane’s first pieces will be T-shirts made of recycled cotton featuring Fane’s own environmental photography. “I hope to capture the niche of photography combined with earth-friendly wear, as I think it is an untapped combination,” says Fane. The name Raw taps into the organic composition of the clothing and doubles as a common file extension for photographs, .raw. “My goal is three-fold,” said the student entrepreneur. “I want to help bring to light the importance of sustaining our natural resources and prove that profit can be found through peaceful practices. And creating .RAWApparel to get that message out furthers my own personal mission. I want to help heal the world...one resource at a time, one shirt at a time, one photo at a time.”

THE CITIZENS VOICE By Al Zucaro

Say what you mean… mean what you say Sound familiar…. Did you see Boca’s CRA workshop meeting on Tuesday, November 13th debating city staff ’s recommendation on the proposed planned mobility ordinance? Did Chairwoman Constance Scott really say what she meant and mean what she said? Can you believe the inquiry she made in members’ comments as to whether the city government can impose an obligation on citizens not to hold any neighborhood meetings discussing city business without a representative of the government present? Just what country does she think we live in? When did elected officials in their representative capacity become philosopher kings ruling over their subjects? These remarks are so out of line that they are almost incomprehensible. But then again, just look at government at all levels telling its subjects what they, the citizens, do not know, do not understand. Incredible….. By way of background, planned mobility is a hot topic within Boca Raton. The city council has been moving forward with legislation designed to change the character of our city. Residents have opposed this legislation which ultimately changes the historical low density nature of Boca Raton. And yes, Chairwoman Scott, Boca Raton has been and remains a low density destination. Contained right in the city’s own code of ordinances is a low density planning directive adopted by the council designating Boca Raton as such. Until and unless that is officially changed, the council, representing the voice of citizens, past and present, has the obligation to act accordingly. To date, planned mobility legislative language is being developed with land owners, their lobbyists and attorneys that will add great value to large parcels of land within 5 areas of the city. Agents for the landowners have been exercising major influence on what the final legislative lanMunicipal News

Much of these Phase II of the construction imefforts are without the city council provement plan is expected to begin recognizing the concerns raised by in May 2013 with a target completion date of November 2013. citizen groups throughout the city. At the Federation of Homeowners meeting last week, Deputy City Manager George Brown presented staff ’s recommendations for a final ordinance. Staff ’s position differs from those made at the planning and zoning committee meeting three weeks ago. Staff presented its recommendation to the CRA at the workshop on November 13th and final legislation will be presented to council in two public hearings on November 27 and December 11. The land owners’ agents will be there in force to argue for their preferred changes. Interested citizens must remain vigilant and have only these two remaining opportunities to remind the council of their representative role. Good luck with that…. One note of recognition is that at the Federation meeting, Chairwoman Scott was present and offered comments to the attendees that were articulate, informed and concise. It escapes this writer why she and other city council members, individually, do not take more opportunities to present their arguments to concerned citizens instead of the continued acrimony that is currently employed. To that end, a political action committee, BocaWatch, has been formed and will be organizing opportunities for council members, on invitation, to appear before interested citizens and groups to discuss legislation that the council member may support or oppose. It will be interesting to see which members are willing to participate in forums outside the formality of the council chambers. More on this in the near future…. So back to the beginning…council members should always say what they mean and, of course, mean what they say, but more important, elected officials should be able to defend to the body politic, the citizens, their actions and their votes.

Leo A. Daly, Weitz Construction and New York-based John Saladino Design Group worked closely with the St. Andrews Country Club Construction Committee and professional staff to ensure the membership would be pleased with the final product. “Members’ feedback has been extremely positive and we are appreciative of the work put forth by Ed Cooperman, Construction Committee Chair and his team,” said Michael Goldman, president, St. Andrews CC Board of Governors. “They put in a lot of hours with the vendors to guarantee a high quality renovation.” Phase II will begin in the spring and includes the recreation and aquatic center, extensive clubhouse enhancements and updates to the dining and lounge areas. Phase III will begin in June 2014 with improvements to Lakeside, a freestanding dining and entertainment facility. Many prospective members seeking real estate in private residential communities are attracted to clubs offering renovated and upgraded facilities,

reputable service and family-oriented amenities. The three-year strategic improvement plan includes facility upgrades, replacements and expansion that meets the needs of current and future members. “Phase I is the first step in our strategic plan to attract younger members to the community with upgraded facilities and Phase II enhancements to the recreation and dining areas will encourage and promote spaces for families of all ages to enjoy,” added Craig D. Martin. St. Andrews CC chief operating officer and general manager. “St. Andrews is a leader in the Boca Raton market for benchmarking standards of excellence,” he said. “We are committed to protecting members’ real estate interests and attracting new members who seek the highest quality of facilities and service.” St. Andrews Country Club of Boca Raton features superior amenities, two 18-hole championship golf courses, including an Arnold Palmer Signature Design®.

Notes from PBSC: Small Business Tips for Handling Negative PR

BOCA RATON – Officials at Boca Raton Regional Hospital have released financial results for Fiscal Year 2012 and the first quarter of Fiscal Year 2013. After experiencing its first decline in financial performance in four years during Fiscal 2012, the hospital rallied in the first quarter of the new fiscal year to realize material gains.

By Palm Beach State College Small Business Development Center BOCA RATON -- In this digital age, it’s easy to give feedback and get feedback. But what do you do if your small business receives negative press? Staying calm, objective and responsive can help put out the fire and generate some positive PR. Here are some tips: Don’t hide. In most cases, a failure to react will only validate the criticisms, so an appropriate response is usually advisable. Yet there are exceptions. If the accusation isn’t credible (a rumor or Internet troll), there’s no need to dignify it. Don’t overreact. It’s easy to be emotional and use inflammatory or defensive language when attacked, especially if things get personal. Ask for equal time. Most legitimate websites or news sources will let you have your say in response to a negative story. Where facts or details are wrong, insist on your right to set the record straight. Appeal to the journalist or blogger’s sense of accuracy. No one wants to get it wrong. Use facts and figures and cite third party sources. A convincing response is usually one that invokes objective facts or statistics. Quote third parties. Past recognition, company ratings and recommendations, even satisfied customers, will help you state your case. Let your advocates defend you. If you have trusted customers or partners who are willing to be quoted or post comments in your defense, by all

Boca Hospital Finance Report Cites “Material Gains” Despite Losses

means, let them. The essence of reputation is what others say about you in public. If appropriate, apologize. If your company has made an error, offer a prompt and sincere apology. Take responsibility, and more importantly, take steps to fix the situation or make amends. Generate positive content where possible. Once the storm passes, help “push down” negative or unflattering stories or comments with fresh, positive, and highly searchable content. Step up your blogging; offer to guest post on an industry site; get quoted in a trade publication or site. Ask yourself, is this an opportunity? Sometimes public criticism is actually a gift in disguise. It can be a chance to correct a problem or improve a product or service offering. If appropriate, thank your critic and take advantage of the opening. For more on this topic, or for nocost consulting with certified business analysts, including growth acceleration consultants and PTAC specialists, contact the SBDC at 561-862-4726 or email sbdc@palmbeachstate.edu

“Our step back in financial performance can be largely attributed to volume declines that were the shortterm result of our actions in Fiscal 2012 to position the hospital for long-term success,” said Jerry Fedele, president and CEO at Boca Regional. Fedele cited such operational improvements as the introduction of electronic medical records and a hospitalist program as examples of initiatives that had positive impact on patient care, but were ones of significant change to physicians utilizing Boca Regional. “These changes, while advancing the level of care we provide, were material and undoubtedly had an effect on physician utilization until they became comfortable with them.” For the 12 months ending June 30, 2012, Boca Regional incurred a net loss of $10.1 million. For the first quarter of its new fiscal year, which ended on September 30, 2012, the hospital incurred a net loss of $1.4 million. This first quarter 2013 performance represents an improvement of $5.9 million over the corresponding time period last year and is the best first quarter performance under the current leadership since 2008. Boca Regional, given the seasonal nature of its patient pop-

ulation, traditionally budgets losses through the first part of its fiscal year.

During the most recent time period, Boca Regional saw increased patient volumes. Total discharges were up by 2.3 percent compared to the same period in the prior year. Total surgical cases improved by 2.5 percent, outpatient radiation oncology procedures increased 24.8 percent; cardiac catheterizations were 8.7 percent better than the prior year and deliveries increased by 3.8 percent. The hospital continues to be the busiest center for robotic surgery in Palm Beach County, increasing its number of procedures during the corresponding fiscal quarters from 75 to 117. “We are greatly encouraged by the results of our first quarter and believe they reflect that we have weathered the setback that was brought about by the evolution in the way we provide care,” said Fedele. “I remain confident that this fiscal year will conclude in a manner that continues the significant financial improvement we saw during the last four fiscal years of our current administration.”

Wayne Barton Study Center Holiday Newsletter No. 2

O CHRISTMAS TREE, O CHRISTMAS TREE

Kids Do the Decorating; Toys for Teens Program continues BOCA RATON – Just a week ago, a tall evergreen tree stood alone and undecorated in the entrance corridor of the Wayne Barton Study Center at 269 NE 14th St., Boca Raton. Then, a group of kids who take part in the various programs at the Barton Center arrived. They grabbed ornaments and lights and turned the evergreen into a holiday showpiece. Now, when students and visitors arrive at the Barton Center, they are greeted with a shining tree that has officially welcomed the Christmas season. In the meantime, Wayne Barton, founder of the center, is continuing his “Toys for Teens” effort by asking residents to donate an unwrapped toy that will be presented to a child in the 12 to 18 age bracket. Barton said he wants to reward the children he serves year-round with his education and meals programs. “We want to give something to the children who have improved their grades and behavior,” said Barton.

Anyone who wants to bring an unwrapped toy to the center can do so Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Donations may also be sent to the Wayne Barton Study Center, 269 NE 14th St., Boca Raton. In addition to the toys, he is collecting food – turkeys, hams and canned goods – for those who would not have sufficient food or resources for a special holiday meal. The “big day” for Wayne Barton’s kids will actually take place Sunday, Dec. 16 from 1 to 4 p.m. That’s when Santa Claus will arrive on a fire truck and distribute toys to area kids. There will also be a full dinner, Southern-style, gospel singing and an ice cream sundae make-it-yourself station. This isn’t just a Christmas thing for Barton. For years, he has held annual Christmas and Thanksgiving events, inviting kids and families to break bread and celebrate the spirit of the seasons. He also holds a Back-to-School jam in August for kids returning to class. During that occasion, he distrib-

with local businesses to create an “Angel Tree” program intended to personalize the gift-giving. “You can put a toy in a box and just give it,” he said. But through the Angel Tree program, a person or business will know which child gets the gift, and can fit the wish to his or her own desire.

Barton offers an After-School Meal every day for children who don’t have the chance for a hot dinner. There is also camaraderie among them – another commodity that’s in short supply these days. Kids “don’t text each other from one room to another,” said Barton. “They talk – and get along.” During the Christmas season, Barton said he’s hoping to partner

WHAT BUSINESS ARE YOU IN?

By Gerald J. Sherman

GetMed Urgent Care marks grand opening at Fountains Center

Identifying Changing Market Shifts Many successful businesses hope to stay in their magical “comfort zone,” where things always stay the same. However, they will find that just as there is change in their daily lives so is there change in their daily business environment. Today’s fast-paced world places an enormous pressure on companies to keep up with change. Demographics, social and political events, competition, all contribute to the volatile shifts in the marketplace. How do you keep up with these changes? How do you anticipate why and when changes occur? What strategies will you use to stay ahead of these changes and manage them? Change is not only a natural process in the business world, but one which is also necessary for the company’s existence. Consumers changing attitudes and preferences intensify the changing process. According to the Merriam-Webster dictionary change is defined as “to replace with another - to make a shift from one to another.” Consumer demand and competition are forces that cause market shifts and are generated from outside your control. It is important to recognize these market shifts when they take place. There are three types of market shift changes: (Sherman&Perlman). • Product-oriented Market Shift -- a significant change in the product or service which can potentially affect sales • People-oriented Market Shift -- a significant change in the demographics and psychographics which can potentially affect sales. • Structure-oriented. Market Shift -- a significant change in the structure of the industry – the way product/service is deBusiness

Lynn Men’s Soccer Claims Fourth National Title, 20th National Title in School History The sting of loss from last year’s final has given way to jubilation following Lynn University’s 3-2 victory over Saginaw Valley State in the NCAA Division II Championship final, claiming the program’s fourth national title and the 20th in school history. Johnny Mertl and Yannick Braeuer scored first-half goals but it was Anthony Desperito’s goal with 20 minutes remaining that allowed the Fighting Knights to hoist the championship trophy. Lynn finishes the season 19-3-1 overall. The Blue & White previously won national crowns in 2003, 1991 and 1987. Desperito was honored as the Most Outstanding Offensive Player while Jason Sangha earned Most Outstanding Defensive Player recognition. The duo was joined on the all-tournament team by James Aldred, Roberto Cadilhe, Julian Halder and Martin Wehlert. Just as LU had done in the semifinals, it found the back of the net within moments of the opening whistle. The Fighting Knights took advantage of a corner kick from Jack Winter on the left flag as AB Magnusson was able to keep the initial header inside the sixyard box before Johnny Mertle headed home his first goal of the season.

Lynn dominated the pace of play for the remainder of the first half and headed to the locker room with a welcome surprise; a second goal. Saginaw Valley State (18-3-4) was pushed on its heels by Simon Gubisch, who drew a foul on the left wing. James Aldred bent-in the ensuing free kick and Braeuer was waiting on the right post for his fourth score. The Fighting Knights kept up the pressure in the second half and were rewarded after the Cardinals moved forward in a trap position. Keeper Matt DiCerbo launched a drop kick into the midfield which Winter was able to head past the SVSU defense. NCAA Offensive Most Outstanding Player Anthony Desperito slipped by the back four and ripped a shot past a pulled out Jason Wise in goal for the eventual gamewinner.

Ahead 3-0, the Cardinal made it a game with 22 minutes to play. Zach Walega scored after a defensive mishap to cut the deficit to two and Lachlan Savage headed in a cross from Zach Minor minutes later to keep things interesting. But Mertl won a ball in the midfield and headed to the left corner, kicking

off a celebration on the bench. As the clock struck 00:00, the Fighting Knights swarmed the field amidst all the fans that traveled from Boca Raton to celebrate the school’s 20th national championship. Lynn out shot Saginaw Valley State 12-8 and held a 4-2 edge in corner kicks.

FAU Accepts Conference USA Bid Florida Atlantic University has entered into a membership agreement with Conference USA and will join the league in 2014. Conference USA (C-USA) will include 14 schools in 10 states and provide FAU’s nearly 500 student-athletes a broad range of new experiences and recognition. “Florida Atlantic University is now a proud member of Conference USA,” said FAU President Mary Jane Saunders. “We look forward to the opportunities a new league will offer. Conference USA’s media partnerships will provide FAU with increased national exposure, and our fans will benefit from new rivalries and an exciting new dynamic for FAU athletics.” C-USA’s existing media contracts include television partnerships with FOX Sports Media Group, CBS Sports Network and ESPN. In August 2011, the conference launched a digital network, which includes live streaming of non-televised events, video on demand, a weekly C-USA show, podcasting, regular-season and championship event highlights, and conference-produced feature stories. “This is a momentous day in the history of Florida Atlantic University,” said FAU Athletics Director Pat Chun. “We are proud to be aligned with the great institu-

Sports

tions that define Conference USA. More than ever, we are committed to the development of our student-athletes into leaders and champions.” Membership in C-USA reunites FAU with its in-state rival FIU, which joins the league in 2013. The league’s other institutions will include Louisiana Tech, Marshall, Middle Tennessee, North Texas, Old Dominion, Rice, Southern Mississippi, Texas-San Antonio, Tulsa, UAB and UTEP. Charlotte will be a non-football member until 2015. New C-USA additions will grow the league’s footprint by 20 percent and allow for a division-scheduling model that will be beneficial to all student-athletes, fan-friendly and cost effective. FAU will be showcased in four of the top 25 and 11 of the top 65 markets in the country, according to Nielsen’s 2012-2013 estimates. “The future of Florida Atlantic and its athletics is very bright,” said Britton Banowsky, commissioner of Conference USA. “The commitment to excellence by FAU’s outstanding leadership is clear, as evident by its new on-campus stadium. FAU is a perfect fit for the divisional model and located in a destination Conference USA fans will enjoy.”

FAU opened 29,419-seat FAU Stadium in 2011 and will play the final home game of its second season in the new venue on Saturday, Dec. 1, against Louisiana-Lafayette. C-USA offers championships for each of the 19 varsity sports sponsored by FAU. In football, the league is a member of the Bowl Championship Series and has tie-ins with the following bowls: AutoZone Liberty Bowl, Beef O’Brady’s St. Petersburg Bowl, Bell Helicopter Armed Forces Bowl, Military Bowl, R+L Carrier New Orleans Bowl, Sheraton Hawaii Bowl, and the TicketCity Bowl. C-USA has consistently been ranked as one of the top men’s basketball leagues in the country while its women’s basketball teams have made 47 NCAA Tournament and 38 Women’s National Invitation Tournament appearances. Six C-USA members have reached baseball’s College World Series. FAU has been affiliated with the Sun Belt Conference since 2005 after a period as a Division I-AA independent institution. As a member of the Sun Belt, FAU’s student-athletes have garnered success on the field and off, securing seven conference championships. FAU’s football team won the Sun Belt championship in 2007 and the

league’s bowl tie-ins led to appearances and victories in the 2007 New Orleans Bowl and the 2008 Motor City Bowl. The men’s golf, women’s cross country and women’s tennis teams recently received the NCAA’s 2011-12 Public Recognition Award, an honor bestowed on teams with a Division I Academic Progress Rate in the top 10 percent of all squads in their respective sports. “FAU is tremendously proud of its accomplishments as a member of the Sun Belt Conference,” added President Saunders. “Affiliation with the Sun Belt provided an opportunity for FAU’s football program to move to Division I-A and raised the competition level for our student-athletes both academically and athletically. FAU enjoyed its years in the Sun Belt and is very proud of all that our teams accomplished as Sun Belt competitors. I thank Former Commissioner Wright Waters and Commissioner Karl Benson for their leadership of the league.”

FAU Women’s Basketball Wins Second Straight at Home

Two 20-point performances helped the Florida Atlantic University women’s basketball team to a 79-71 home victory over Arkansas State University on Saturday at the FAU Arena. The Owls improve to 2-0 in Sun Belt Conference action and posted their third straight win. “We have started conference well with two victories,” said Kel-

lie Lewis-Jay, FAU’s head women’s basketball coach. “Winning at home was one of our preseason goals. We did a good job of securing the home court this week.” Junior forward Chenise Miller, a preseason all-SBC selection, scored a career-high 29 points (on 13-of-18 shooting), while senior guard Breana Turner chipped in a season-best 22 points off the

bench. “I told Chenise after the last game (playing only 11 minutes Wednesday in a victory over South Alabama) to come ready to play early today. I like seeing her statistics line today,” said Lewis-Jay. Besides the team-high 29 points, Miller had eight rebounds and two blocked shots. FAU (5-2, 2-0 Sun Belt) got off to a quick start, grabbing a 14-9 lead at the 16:06 mark with 11 points coming from Miller. However, the visitors responded with an 8-0 run over the next three minutes to take a 17-14 lead. The first half featured six ties and five lead changes as Arkansas State (1-6, 1-1 Sun Belt) took a 3532 halftime lead. For the third straight game, Florida Atlantic dominated the second half. Junior guard Takia Brooksconnected on a three-point field to tie the game at 37 with 18:42 remaining. The score would be tied four more times before a Miller layup at the 14:23 mark gave FAU a 47-45 lead. Later, junior guard Briah Blake-

ly made a 3-pointer with 12:21 left for a four-point lead, 52-48. That advantage would stretch to 59-52 midway through the second half following another Miller layup. Turner scored 16 of her 22 points in the second half and drained a 3-pointer at the 4:45 mark to give the host a 72-66 lead. She made two free throws on the next offensive possessions to help FAU gain a commanding eightpoint advantage. Brooks rounded out the doublefigure scorers with 10 points and a game-high seven assists. Blakely added eight points in the victory. FAU forced 27 turnovers by the Red Wolves and had 20 assists compared to turning the ball over 10 assists. The Owls lead the SBC in committing the least amount of turnovers per game. Arkansas State was led by Jane Morrill’s 17 points and shot 55 percent in the game. FAU returns to the court on Friday, December 7 at 8 p.m. against Mississippi State University in Starksville, Mississippi.
