Boca Raton Airport Towers to Remain Open, DOT Says By Fred Hamilton The Boca Raton Airport will keep its air traffic controllers on the job at least until Sept. 30 after a decision Friday by the U.S. Department of Transportation. The department sent out a brief statement announcing that Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood determined there is enough extra money, under a bill passed by Congress last month, to keep the towers open through the end of the budget year. “We’re very pleased that it’s been extended through this fiscal year. We fought very hard to get the funding reversed from being cut off,” said Janet Sherr, director of landside operations at the Boca Raton Airport.

FAU President Mary Jane Saunders Announces Resignation By Jason Schwartz Mary Jane Saunders, the embattled Florida Atlantic University president who has had to deal with several controversies over the past year, has resigned.

“When I accepted the presidency of FAU three years ago, I did so with a vision to expand upon the excellence of this richly diverse and strong institution with a focus on academics and student success. We, as a campus community, have successfully accomplished these goals,” Saunders wrote in a letter to FAU Board of Trustees Chair Anthony K. G. Barbar accepted. “There is no doubt the recent controversies have been significant and distracting to all members of the University community. The issues and the fiercely negative media coverage have forced me to reassess my position as the President of FAU. I must make choices that are the best for the University, me and my family.” Barbar regretfully accepted the resignation on Tuesday. “The Board respects your desire to return to the faculty, a decision we

know you made in the best interest of the University,” he wrote in his letter to Saunders. Under Saunders’ watch, the university had been in the media spotlight for a number of controversies over the last 12 months: Students protested the proposed naming of a football stadium by a prison group and a backlash after a professor raised questions about the Sandy Hook and Boston tragedies and another professor whose lessons involved students stepping on a piece of paper with the name Jesus written on it. Tensions on campus increased to the point where police were reportedly stationed in the president’s office and Saunders had a bodyguard. Saunders is not leaving the university; she will return to a faculty position and be assigned a special research project. FAU hopes to have an interim president in place by the fall. At that time, a search committee for a new president will be formed. Here is the text of the announcement from FAU: BOCA RATON, Fla. (May 15, 2013) – Florida Atlantic University Board of Trustees Chair Anthony K. G. Barbar accepted FAU President Mary Jane Saunders’ letter of resignation late yesterday (see attached), responding with a letter (see attached) expressing regret and praising her for her many accomplishments. “On behalf of the Florida Atlantic University Board of Trustees, I regretfully accept your resignation,” he said in his letter. “The Board respects your desire to return to the faculty, a decision we know you made in the best interest of the University.” In her resignation letter, President Saunders wrote, “ When I accepted the presidency of FAU three years ago, I did so with a vision to expand upon the excellence of this richly diverse and strong institution with a focus on academics and student success. We, as

a campus community, have successfully accomplished these goals. “There is no doubt the recent controversies have been significant and distracting to all members of the University community. The issues and the fiercely negative media coverage have forced me to reassess my position as the President of FAU. I must make choices that are the best for the University, me and my family.” Barbar added that President Saunders showed her dedication through attendance at events on campus and in the community. “She attended every athletic game, arts performance and FAU-sponsored event that she could,” he said. “Few major community events were held without her involvement. Throughout her time as President, she consistently demonstrated a genuine love for the University, its students and the community. She has been fully committed morning, day and night to the betterment of FAU. We thank President Saunders for her service and dedication to the university.” President Saunders’ list of accomplishments at FAU is extensive (see attached). During her tenure, freshmen applications and enrollment doubled;

philanthropic donations significantly increased; the University received a perfect score on the 10-year SACS reaffirmation; the Charles E. Schmidt College of Medicine was opened; and a number of capital improvements were accomplished, which include the opening of FAU Stadium, as well as new residence halls, classrooms and research facilities. “The list of accomplishments you made during your three-year tenure is long,” Barbar wrote. “FAU, its students and the region benefited from the strong vision you had for the University’s future – a future you have set in motion.” In consultation with Barbar, President Saunders is appointing Dennis Crudele, FAU’s senior vice president for finance and administration, as the Acting President, effective immediately. President Saunders will be returning to a faculty position and be assigned a special research project – to assess the feasibility of developing a physician’s assistant program at FAU. Barbar said he expects to have an Interim President in place by fall 2013. At that time, a search committee for a new President will be formed. Go to page 24 to see a list of her accomplishments

Suddenly, Things Get Interesting in Boca Raton

“Never pick a fight with someone who buys ink by the barrel.” — attributed to Mark Twain The Obama administration has apparently never heard that old saw about avoiding fights with people who buy their ink by the barrel. Journalists haven’t taken too kindly to the revelation that the Department of Justice seized phone records for the Associated Press in an investigation of classified leaks. Carl Bernstein from MSNBC said: “The object of it is to intimidate people who talk to reporters. This was an accident waiting to become a nuclear event and now it’s happened. There’s no excuse for it whatsoever. There’s no reason for this investigation, especially on this scale.” This story scared Americans; they could not believe someone would abuse their power the way it’s been portrayed. The need to control the press isn’t anything new in the world. Right now, Argentina is having a battle between their president, and their biggest news media and this kind of problem happens all around the world. We can feel this happening not only around the world but also in our own backyard. When we began raising questions

about topics that not all groups were happy with, we began to see retaliation from said groups. The biggest mistake people in government can make is trying to sensor what the media has to say. When that happens, the press speaks louder. Censoring the press is like to try to stop a fire with gasoline. This isn’t something that only I am thinking of, but it’s what history has shown us. Believe me, the Obama administration will be on the radar of all the media because of their mistakes. People will lose their jobs, and the White House will need to work hard to try to minimize those mistakes. Censoring isn’t the only direct action of not allowing the media to publish what they know; this can be made in a numerous of different ways. They can suppress information, they can avoid answering your phone calls, they can ignore your questions by email, they can even play the “I don’t understand” card just to suppress information that the press needs to do their job. They can try to intimidate the press by harming their business.

At this moment some people in the city are trying to intimidate us at The Boca Raton Tribune into now doing our job. They are trying to intimidate us suppressing information, speaking loud and throwing paper on the table during meetings. They are trying to ignore the importance of the media. They are not answering our emails or phone calls and are even trying to use their power to not allow sister companies of our group to get jobs in the city. This is not going to intimidate us. As I said, this is the fuel we need to do our job. This makes our reporters even more motivated to dig for the truth and to know what’s going on in order to make people act like this. Just for the record, during the dictatorial regime in Brazil where we were censored in every newsroom, where the government told us what the papers can or cannot publish, even at that time, the media found ways to do their job. They use to torture and put in jail people who wanted answers and changes. During that time I was a 15 year old student that ran away for the police for going to public events

to speak to the crowd about what was really going on. We used to publish a newspaper in the basements and deliver free to the students with news about the government. I am not afraid of people who try to be aggressive and crass and even of people who want to harm my businesses with their false power. During that time, I learned how to see the character of someone by their attitudes and to know how fragile the false power is. If those attitudes don’t stop, I will have their attitudes and names published in my column, I just want to make this straight and give them the benefit of the doubt before harming people’s jobs. We are receiving support of dozen of readers who send us of emails and letters telling us their stories since my last column. Some other mainstream media have their complaints and already have shares them with me. Don’t suppress the press. This is the message. We live in a free country and with the support of the first amendment; we know what we are doing. God willing, see you next week!

POSITIVE LIVING By Dr. Synesio Lyra, Jr.

Happiness is Never for Sale! People usually tend to ascribe greater value to things which cost a lot. In that vein, many erroneously ponder that happiness is also for sale, anticipating that the more they spend to achieve it will guarantee perpetual bliss to them. Nevertheless, such is not the case though several individuals still pay a fortune to psychotherapists, not because they are emotionally or mentally ill, but because they are devoid of any happiness. These may help, on occasion, but will never bring happiness to anyone! There are also others who go on spending-sprees, engage in all kinds of luxuries but, even then, are incapable

of finding what they so desperately long for; happiness still eludes them, because it can never be linked to one’s possessions. Consider the pathetic empty lives of countless celebrities whether from the theater, cinema, along with TV stars, sports figures, famous singers, and countless others who have everything that money can buy but still miss genuine happiness in life. They fail to recognize that personal wealth will never be a source of real happiness. As a result, many attempt suicide and some succeed. Those who remain alive continue experiencing half lives, or

lives of perpetual meaninglessness and brutal desperation! What most of these persons fail to grasp is that happiness is not necessarily found in success, fame, money, a pill, a drink or any other artificial, and often superficial, means. Happiness is a choice perpetually before every human; it is open to rich or poor, young or old, educated or not. I once read that in Manhattan alone, 40-60% of the residents are in therapy. Similar figures, sadly, are repeated in several other locations around this nation and in other sectors of the globe as well.

Just remember that the factor “happiness” per se, is not for sale because it is free and it can be secured in great abundance wherever one happens to be. Perhaps you need to change your perspective on life, and secure true happiness where you are, in spite of adverse conditions you may have to face, and even when much that you desire may not yet be attainable! Ultimately, real happiness relates far more to who you are than to whatever you may have secured and accumulated!

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.

Courage In The Workplace For many people in today’s workplace, security is their primary concern: A steady job; an acceptable income; manageable job responsibilities; predictable expectations. And who can blame them? With the world economy remaining as uncertain as ever, simply having a job is a blessing. So avoid saying or doing anything that could jeopardize a “secure” position. Why rock the boat?

beyond the confines of the familiar, established and dependable – can come from other sources as well:

Courage to take a stand. When you feel strongly enough about a belief or principle, courage demands that you not compromise. Perhaps you believe a change in strategy is necessary, despite opposition. Or maybe you think change would be wrong, regardless of pressures to do so. Yet most high achievers, those Follow the example of “…the men that have left indelible marks in of Issachar, who understood the their areas of endeavor, have been times and knew what Israel should ones that exhibited uncommon do” (1 Chronicles 12:32). courage – willing to swim against the current, to challenge the status Courage to proceed despite quo, to venture into the unknown danger. Moving forward, or with no guarantees of success. instituting major changes, can involve considerable risk. But if The examples of Bill Gates and you sense God is directing you to Steve Jobs immediately come to move forward, acting boldly with mind, individuals that envisioned courage is warranted. “Have I not uses and capabilities for computers commanded you? Be strong and that their peers never dreamed of courageous. Do not be terrified; being possible. We have the classic do not be discouraged, for the example of inventors like Thomas Lord your God will be with you Edison, who is said to have remained wherever you go” (Joshua 1:9). undaunted by setbacks in his quest to invent the light bulb, convinced Courage to persevere.

At such times, the courage Where does such courage come to persist, to remain focuses on from? Sometimes it comes from the objective, is essential. “Let us necessity.

Gone Tomorrow Q: I have just had a disturbing preliminary consultation with a divorce attorney. My husband is a well known personal injury attorney who earns well over a million dollars a year. We have been married for six years, and have two children. I met my husband when I was working for his firm as a paralegal. We lived together for eight years before we married. I am 37 years old and he is 52. He had been married before, for 14 years and pays permanent alimony.

to permanent periodic alimony, or durational alimony for a set number of years. Therefore, it is not likely that a court could grant you any significant alimony.

The attorney advised me that I probably would not be able to get permanent alimony, even though my husband and I had been together 14 years. We live in a three million dollar house, which is mortgaged to the hilt, and I drive a leased Porsche. We have a forty foot fishing boat. We have no savings. I could not afford to continue to live the way we live now with out permanent alimony. Was the attorney correct?

You will be able to receive child support based on your husband’s income, although the court might include some projected income for you. He will probably have to supply the children with health insurance and may have to provide life insurance. If the children have been attending private school and summer camps, he might have to continue those extras as part of the children’s lifestyle.

A: A six year marriage is considered a short marriage under Florida law. A short term marriage does not give you the right to expect the same lifestyle after the marriage that you enjoyed during the marriage. Under Florida law living together prior to marriage does not turn a short term marriage into what the courts call a “gray area marriage,” which might entitle you

The attorney you consulted with has done an excellent job of giving you advice that was correct and realistic. It is better to begin the divorce process with realistic expectations than to have less experienced counsel build up false hopes which can never be achieved.

You are a young woman, who has had experience as a paralegal. A court might give you some “bridge the gap” short term support or, perhaps, a little longer term of rehabilitative alimony, to enable you to bring your skills up to speed and obtain employment.

Your lifestyle will not be gone today but it will probably be gone tomorrow.

Indie Rock Band The Vogans Release First EP

By: Andrea Garcia and Gina Onori On May 5th indie rock band The Vogans, based out of Boca Raton, released their first self titled EP. Upon listening we couldn’t help but think this is only the first? It was surprising and refreshing to hear consistency from track to track- it being the band’s debut EP. Lead vocalist and founder of the group, Andre Heizer has a mysterious voice that tastefully engulfs you in a warm echo while the rest of the band harmoniously delivers individualized melodies that come together to form an upbeat, indie pop groove. Although this project was of course studio recorded, it almost feels as if you are listening to them Boca Life & Arts

perform live at a show. The mixing and collaborations amongst this five member band is just that organized yet at the same time free spirited. Between Andre’s elongated vocals and lead guitarist Nick Jamshidi’s craft every note simply seems to fall into place. For the overall sound including bassist Paul DeFilippis, percussionist Nick Palmieri and drummer John Paul Morrissee, each song was well paced with a few exceptions of some surprising tunes. Some great tracks off this EP include Dr. Wallace and CosmosThe intense drums and lively rhythms that The Vogans deliver bring you back to the genius days of Jimi Hendrix, the diversity of The Pixies and the innovation of MGMT. If you are hungry for any of these bands, The Vogans will be

sure to satisfy your appetite. The band’s sound takes you on a trippy journey full of twists and turns, and it’s quite a ride to keep up with these guys. Heizer sang profound phrases with creative lyricism yet never distasteful. Their new song Cosmos, a fan-favorite, is delivered by sunny synth beats and a timely keyboard tempo as a low-end bass conjoins with an uplifting electric guitar to bring forth a toe-tapping, hipswinging melody. The opening lines “Look inside Into the fogged window/ Lean in to take a peak/ See only what you know” are the intro into a psychedelic trip of hope, honesty, and courage. Some of their influences include The Monkeys, Radiohead, and The Who. The goal for the band is to

build up more of a fan base, but at such a young age it is often difficult to book gigs at certain venues with age requirements. This harsh reality is a shame, because more people should be able to get their fix and experience what The Vogans have to offer. This band has every tasteful ingredient it needs to cook up a stir in the indie rock scene. This EP has something for everyone to enjoy, no matter what your favorite genre of music, I guarantee you will be nodding your head to The Vogans. The message that The Vogans want to convey to their audience is to have fun. They hope that people enjoy their music as much as they do. You can find The Vogans online at More pictures on B3 May 17, through May 23, 2013

“War Horse” Unique, Epic Story of Love and War “War Horse” is unlike any other theatrical presentation this year or any other. This moving story of a boy and his horse continues through May 19 at Broward Center in Fort Lauderdale.

loud noises and gunpowder smells sitting so close, as the show recreates the horrors of being in the trenches in France, battling the German forces of the Kaiser. The story begins in 1912 with the

Albert’s best friends and comrades. If it weren’t for its upbeat cliffhanger resolution, it would be almost unbearable. Instead it is inspirational and a marvel of a very large group of talented people working together in perfect concert. Tickets are $39.50$89.50 ($119.50 Club Section. Call 954-4620222 or go to www. Chameleon Musicians Finale May 12 at Leiser Center Chameleon Musicians winds up its season at 3 p.m. Sunday, May 12 at Leiser Center, 221 SW Third Ave., Fort Lauderdale. The program features the work of Tchaikovsky, Schubert and Elfrida Andree. Tickets are $35 ($15 students). Call 954-761-3435.

“War Horse” is almost like an extended dance, with amazingly intricate choreography intermixed with agile, athletic puppetry, interacting wordlessly with human actors. The story is based on Michael Morpurgo’s 1982 children’s story which was adapted to the stage by Nick Stafford and debuted in London in 2007. It also is the basis of Steven Spielberg’s award-winning 2011 live action film. The story is much like the traditional, sentimental children’s tales “Black Beauty,” “National Velvet’ and “Lassie Come Home,” except in this case it is set in the ghastly time of World War I in Europe. Spielberg used real horses in his epic movie. This stage play, based on choreography and movement by Toby Sedgwick, uses ingenious lifesize puppets created by Handspring Puppet Company of South Africa. We were seated right down front in the third row. On one hand that is good because we could really see the actors and their subtle expressions. On the other hand it is not so good to be so close because you can see the puppeteers inside the horse puppets manipulating the beautiful machines and creating the horse sounds with three human voices working on concert, revealing the illusion.

birth of a beautiful horse witnessed by a 14-year-old boy named Albert Narracott (Alex Morf). The production has incidental music throughout reminiscent of the period. Particularly appealing is the recurring them “All Be Remembered for What We Have Done.” When the colt comes up for sale two years later, a bidding war occurs between the brothers Arthur Narracott (Brian Keane) and Ted Narracott (Todd Cerveris). There is an intense rivalry and some bitterness between the brothers. Arthur boasts of his battle experiences in the Boer War, though it was Ted who was the real hero, wounded in action and left lame. Ted uses alcohol to ease his pain. Sometimes it gets the best of him, as it does when he recklessly wins the bid at 39 guineas- an enormous sum at the time. Albert literally falls in love with his horse, which he names Joey. When Great Britain is forced into the war against Germany, Ted agrees to sell Joey to an army officer (Jason Loughlin) for 100 pounds. At 16 Joey is too young to enlist. Eventually he will, only to witness firsthand the horrors and sorrow of hand-to-hand combat. Alex Morf is a very emotive actor who bears a striking resemblance to a young Ronnie Howard. “War Horse” is also a story of repeated loss of

Mario’s Osteria – Superb Classic Italian Fare Enjoy the luxury of selecting from a list of 13 truly Italian appetizers such a 3 meatballs made with beef, pork and veal crowned with a dollop of ricotta and fried peppers or Mario’s signature dish of eggplant pancakes – a stack of five, each separated by melted layers of feta, asiago, parmesan and mozzarella cheeses and sauced perfectly with asiago tomato syrup. Both marvelous! We also sampled calamari – available fra diavolo or simply grilled or…our choice… crispy fried with a fine marinara sauce – delicious! Two standard soups are the chicken vegetable and the pasta fagioli which was smooth and deep flavored. We enjoyed it and, as the soup of the day, a fine mixture of vegetables in a hearty minestrone, if it is on your menu – try it. From a list of 10 salads, we applauded a fine Caesar with a creamy dressing and with a hint of anchovies. This was accompanied by a side of whole anchovies. One may add shrimp or chicken or salmon or steak if you wish but the salad is superb as is. The house salad was sampled next but we were delighted to have the roasted beets and goat cheese salad that featured pistachios, currants, arugula and taggiasca olives with crostini in olive oil…and exciting experience. The offer to “Create Your Own Pizza” on the menu was accepted so we could judge their basic concept. We ordered a medium cheese pizza – 12” with only Mario’s sauce and grande mozzarella to evaluate the crust and base. The taste, thinness and texture were perfect. No need to add any of the 42 pizza toppings or to order any of the 18 signature pies

to state- “Mario’s pizza is superb”. We sampled chicken two ways. The roasted lemon chicken frascati style was a tender chicken half with a true lemon taste and presented with artichokes, rosemary and roasted vesuvio potatoes with a white wine sauce for a gentle taste. The chicken scarpiello, however, was a robust dish with pepperoncini, broken cherry peppers, roasted peppers, calamata olives, Sicilian olives, artichokes and pasta scarpiello sauce to which we added sausage with a real bite. A fine, spicy dish for the adventurous. There are a dozen additional listings in the Meat Entrée menu as well. We were unable to sample any of the 10 fish and seafood items or any of the 18 pasta items or any of the 17 side dishes to try another time, although Director of Operations Sande Weinstein gave us his suggestions. Mario’s Osteria prides itself of serving their fine foods in large portions created by Executive Chef Augustine Jeudy and staff – Bravo! For excellent selection choices, our server Daniel was a fountain of knowledge –also Bravo!

World Renowned Artist Art Siegel Showcases 3D Art Works in Boca Raton’s Museum Of Art By: Rachel Almeida Boca Raton has been made home to many creative minds, and nationally renowned artist Art Siegel is no exception. His 3D works are now open for public view and his uncommon inspirations and artistic background have garnered him a lot of attention from the Boca Raton area and beyond. His works, which are on display at the Boca Museum of Art until July 14, are entitled Kinetic Vistas and implement photography and physical elements to create an intricate, three-dimensional piece. And it’s not only Boca Raton that has sparked an interest in Siegel’s innovations; Art’s pieces hang in various homes across the globe, from Montreal to South America—proving that art can be a universal language. Siegel, a native New Yorker, has found a way to make use of his retirement years in South Florida by continuing to draw upon his natural talent for design and construction to create his art. Having worked in public television, Art draws on his

knowledge in scenery backgrounds to design his one-of-a-kind works, which use pieces of wood, metal, and plastic to enhance the detail of the featured photographs. His dimensional creations, which include titles such as 7th Avenue Local and Number 6 to Pelham Bay, often depict bustling city-scenes and have been known to give viewers the feeling of being a part of the piece—not a common characteristic for modern artwork. “The audience needs to feel that the action is occurring in a real place. Whether that reality is inside a courtroom, in front of a fantasy castle, or in John Adams’ period home,” Siegel says, “Everything that appears on the screen must serve as credible context for the story.” Unlike his artistic contemporaries, Siegel’s Kinetic Vistas focus on the background, and not the individual subjects. Not only does his artwork produce a creative outlet, it has also prompted charitable, community involvement. Two of Siegel’s pieces will be on display at the Yaacov Heller’s Gallery 22 for a cocktail and

cupcake reception benefitting The Multiple Sclerosis Foundation, MSF, on Thursday, May 23rd. The event, which will take place at Heller’s Gallery 22, will also give guests the opportunity to have a meet-andgreet with Siegel and learn more about his chance encounter with the artistic communities of South Florida. The reception will benefit MSF, which is a foundation whose main focus is not only to assist those

affected by multiple sclerosis, but also to create educational programs that help educate the community on the realities of those living with MS. Yaavoc Heller’s Cocktails and Cupcake Reception will be held on Thursday, May 23rd at Gallery 22, and will run from 5:30to 7:30pm, which is by invitation only.

Carjacking suspect identified On Thursday, March 28 at about 10:50 p.m., Boca Raton Police officers responded to a report of a carjacking that occurred at 521 NE 43 Street. The victim told officers she had just arrived home from work when she was approached by a male asking for directions. As she was giving the directions, the male pointed a long, black handgun at her and demanded her car keys. After she gave him the keys, the suspect got into her 2008 black Nissan Altima bearing Florida tag 881TFF and drove off. The victim’s purse, which contained cash and credit cards, an iPhone, iPad, and laptop were in the car. The victim was not injured. During the investigation, detectives with the Boca Raton Police Services Department learned about an armed carjacking in Delray Beach where a white Dodge Charger was stolen. Hours later, deputies from the Broward County Sheriff ’s Office (BSO) located the Charger along with the car from the Boca Raton carjacking

at the Plantation Inn in Plantation. Surveillance video showed both cars arriving two hours after the carjacking in Delray Beach. It also showed Myronn Berry driving the car belonging to the Boca Raton victim. Most of the victim’s property was recovered, along with majority of the cash stolen. Both Berry and Alexander Boyd were arrested by BSO. Detectives from the Boca Raton Police Services Department then went to the Broward County jail to interview Boyd. Boyd gave investigators detailed information about the night of the carjacking in Boca Raton. The red and gold color car the victim saw at the scene when she was carjacked was also recovered as a stolen vehicle by BSO in Lauderdale Lakes. Detectives went to the Broward County jail to talk with Myronn Berry who was uncooperative and refused to speak. Based on the information laid out by detectives Berry was charged with armed carjacking.

Palm Beach Schools Observe Food Allergy Awareness Week By Natalia Arenas Food allergies affect nearly 250,000 students in Florida and researchers estimate that up to 15 million Americans have food allergies with nearly 6 million being children. To increase awareness and education regarding this disease, Senator Joe Negron, District 32, has issued a Proclamation in recognition of Food Allergy Awareness Week, May 12–18. Every three minutes, a food allergy reaction sends someone to the emergency department – that is more than 200,000 emergency department visits per year. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control reported that food allergies result in more than 300,000 ambulatory-care visits a year among children under the age of 18. Food allergy is the leading cause of anaphylaxis outside the hospital

setting. There is no cure for food allergies. Strict avoidance of food allergens and early recognition and management of allergic reactions to food are important measures to prevent serious health consequences. Once you have been diagnosed with a food allergy, talk to your doctor about how allergic reactions should be treated. Mild to moderate symptoms are often treated with antihistamines and oral or topical steroids. Click here to watch an informational video about managing food allergies in the school setting.

Boca Raton Airport towers to remain open, DOT says By Fred Hamilton The Boca Raton Airport will keep its air traffic controllers on the job at least until Sept. 30 after a decision Friday by the U.S. Department of Transportation. The department sent out a brief statement announcing that Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood determined there is enough extra money, under a bill passed by Congress last month, to keep the towers open through the end of the budget year. “We’re very pleased that it’s been extended through this fiscal year. We fought very hard to get the funding reversed from being cut off,” said Janet Sherr, director of landside operations at the Boca Raton Airport. “We hope that it will be part of the 2014 budget that Congress will look at for funding of $150 million for the control tower to continue and we will continue to fight for that.” Sherr on Wednesday praised the work of local businesses, the airport’s board and community leaders who notified congressional

representatives about the economic consequences of closing the control tower. “The airport staff worked very hard in reaching out to our congressional delegates and they all jumped on board,” she said. U.S. Representatives Lois Frankel, Ted Deutch and U.S. Sens. Bill Nelson (D-Fla.) and Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) were “very instrumental in making it happen,” she said, adding “they all signed on to the letters we asked them to sign.” A message left at Mayor Susan Welchel office seeking her reaction was not returned. The FAA in February listed Boca’s airport and Broward County’s North Perry Airport among 189 small airports across the country slated to lose their control towers as a result of the federal cuts, known as the sequester. Last month the FAA released a final list of 149 towers that will close. Congress freed up $253 million last month from accounts with unspent funds to prevent further furloughs of air traffic controllers.

The furloughs at airport towers and air traffic control facilities caused widespread flight delays across the country for nearly a week before Congress stepped in. Then, the transportation department had to decide whether that money would be spent on the control towers. The towers at some small airports were scheduled to close June 15 as part of the FAA’s plan to accommodate automatic spending cuts required by Congress. Airport officials have said it would cost roughly $650,000 a year to take over tower operations. Without a manned tower, the airports can remain open but pilots have to monitor the airfield themselves during takeoffs and landings. Air traffic control unions also are upset, saying these closures will impact safety. The FAA insists the airports will remain safe, but South Florida’s congressional delegation pushed back. “We’ve made several requests to the FAA and Department of

Transportation urging them to keep the control tower at Boca Raton Airport open,” wrote Frankel and Deutch. “We’re seeing the real, local impacts of the mindless, acrossthe-board budget cuts known as the sequester with this control tower closure. It’s time for Congress to come together and solve the sequester. On behalf of our constituents we will continue to fight to make sure planes coming in and out of Boca Raton Airport are safe.” Boca’s tower opened in 2000, five months after four people died when two planes collided over suburban Boca Raton. Some area residents blamed the collision on the absence of a tower. Five air traffic controllers work at Boca’s tower, manned daily from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. The airport, which generates $154 million, provides 1,237 jobs, Sherr said. “With the tower being open continues that process,” she said. “If this closes, you’re going to lose jobs and corporations will pull out. It will hurt.”

Newsweek Names 2 Palm Beach Schools to “Best High Schools” List By CRA News Service Newsweek and The Boca Raton Tribune are recognizing two Palm Beach County high schools as being among the best 2,000 public high schools in the United States. Suncoast Community High School and the Alexander W. Dreyfoos School of the Arts made Newsweek’s annual “America’s Best High Schools” list for 2013. They ranked 9th and 39th respectively both boast graduation rates of 100 percent. Schools were ranked based on a number of factors, including graduation rate, college acceptance rate, average SAT or ACT scores and the number of students taking advanced classes. “Total commitment to a culture

of achievement for all and service to others fuels excellence at Suncoast,” said Principal Dr. Linda Cartlidge. “Newsweek’s recognition of Suncoast as one of the nation’s Top 10 schools for the eighth year validates this mission.” “The Dreyfoos Community is proud of our Newsweek ranking as we continue to strive for academic excellence and increase student achievement each year,” said Principal Dr. Susan Atherley. More than 115 Florida high schools were included in the total list. Boca Raton Community High School ranked 226 and Spanish River Community High School ranked 245.

Boca Raton Regional Hospital Receives “A” Rating In Hospital Safety Score Boca Raton Regional Hospital is the recipient of an “A” rating in the Spring 2013 Hospital Safety Score, administered by The Leapfrog Group, an independent, national nonprofit organization focused on healthcare safety and accountability. The Hospital Safety Score, calculated under the guidance of experts from Harvard and Johns Hopkins, uses 26 measures of publicly available hospital safety data to produce a single grade representing a hospital’s overall success in keeping patients safe from infections, injuries, and medical and medication errors. The Spring 2013 update to the Score used information from 2012 and assigned

“A,” “B,” “C,” “D” or “F” grades to more than 2,500 general hospitals in the United States, of which, only one third earned an “A” grade. “As evidenced by this latest information, Boca Regional places the highest priority on patient safety, as well as other quality-care indicators, such as Core Measures and patient satisfaction,” said Jerry Fedele, President and CEO of Boca Regional. “This focus has resulted in our material success in establishing and maintaining an environment of care that is ranked as top performing in the country by a host of independent ratings organizations.”


Defining Your Target Market Developing a Focus Group I recently asked a prospective client what business she was in. She complained that some days she doesn’t know herself. She said her clients are so fickle that she is not sure what they want anymore. We decided to do a focus group to find out what they wanted and determine if we can satisfy their wants and needs. We discovered that she was not catering to her present market and did not see what was actually happening. There was a marked shift to a younger, more price conscious customer. Knowing your audience base is essential for any business. However, we must have the tools to work with in order keep up with the changing times. So, we conducted a Focus Group! What is a focus group? It is a research tool that gives the company the ability to intermingle directly with its public in a controlled environment. In this setting the participants’ responses are recorded and analyzed. Look at it as another means you can use to evaluate your current services and future plans. It affords you a chance to become more attuned to what your customers are thinking by hearing and analyzing their responses to the posed questions and to each other’s responses. There are various kinds of focus groups depending upon on the size of the business, the size of the geographical area concerned with and the cost allocated to it. The cost of a focus group is not expensive, (we offer a special discount to those who read The Boca Raton Tribune). Focus groups are also used in marketing research studies, in the social sciences, political campaigns and even by the federal government. For the purpose of the average local business the group should consist of a representative group of your company’s target market usually, 6-12 people, who are requested to participate in your focus group and answer questions posed by the moderator. The questions asked relate to how they feel about the services/

products you provide, future products/ services and their perception of your brand. There is usually some form of compensation for the participants, special discounts, gifts, refreshments and sometimes-just recognition in the form of a thank you letter. The information you get can be invaluable in guiding you to make corrections or additions to your company’s plans or format. It provides you an opportunity to glean opinions, perceptions and beliefs about your product. A company is wise to conduct a focus group prior to adding a new product/ service or planning any large event, advertising or public relations campaign to ensure that they will resonate with the target audience. All of this can be accomplished by a skilled moderator’s questions and an equally skillful analysis of the answers. • In my experience conducting focus groups, I find that a successful focus group consists of the following four components: • An audience that is carefully selected to truly represent a cross section of your customers. • The skills of the independent moderator who is running the meeting, in stimulating audience participation. • The suitability of the questions asked. • The objective analysis of the information obtained. Organizing a focus group is not a meaningless activity; it unveils vital information a business needs in order to serve its public. It’s not expensive and the return on investment will pay great dividends. Excerpts from the book, The Real World Guide to Selling & Management, Gerald J. Sherman, MBA,DBA & Sar S. Perlman.

John Sculley to Speak at Palm Beach State College STEAM Event Fundraiser Former Apple Inc. and Pepsi Executive to Discuss Local Job Creation (LAKE WORTH, Fla. – April 29, 2013) – Former Apple Inc. president and Pepsi executive John Sculley will share his perceptions on working with local entrepreneurs to create jobs and the growing need for science and technology professionals

at an upcoming appearance at Palm Beach State College. This event will be a fundraiser for the Foundation’s STEAM Initiative, a five-year plan with the goal of providing 1,000 new scholarship awards, creating 50 academic program enhancements and generating 100 new businesscollege partnerships with 50 new internship opportunities. The event is set for 5:30 p.m. Thursday, May 30, at the Duncan Theatre on the Lake Worth campus and includes a post-presentation reception. Sculley’s visit is part of the College’s ongoing STEAM Initiative which was launched at a luncheon featuring computer icon

Steve Wozniak in January. Tickets are $50, and can be purchased by calling the Foundation at 561-868-3450 or online at www. Steam. After establishing a national reputation as a successful big brand consumer marketer with Pepsi, Sculley was recruited by Steve Jobs to head up Apple in 1983. At the time, Apple products were outsold by Atari, Commodore, Tandy and IBM. By the time Sculley left Apple 10 years later, the Mac had become the largest selling computer in the world, and Apple’s revenue had grown over 1,000 percent. Yvonne Boice, who is the cochair of the STEAM Initiative said, “We are so proud to be hosting John Sculley. His presence once again proves the national importance of our program. Through these outstanding events, Palm Beach County business leaders are taking notice of the incredible impact this Initiative will have on the economic growth of our community.” Palm Beach State’s five-year STEAM initiative targets the socalled STEM fields of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. Boice suggested the addition of the Arts as she saw the integration as a critical aspect of student education. Bank of America is presenting sponsor for the event. “We plan to continue the excitement started in January and to keep engaging the community throughout the year,” said Suellen

Mann, executive director of the Palm Beach State Foundation. “This first follow-up event with John Sculley presents a different aspect of closing the gap on STEAM education, as he will share his experiences of working with local companies. In September, we plan to offer an educational event, and of course, we are already planning next January’s luncheon with a world-class speaker.” . Serving 49,000 students annually, Palm Beach State College is the largest institution of higher education in Palm Beach County, providing bachelor’s degrees, associate degrees, professional certificates, career training and lifelong learning. Established in 1933 as Florida’s first public community

college, it offers more than 100 programs of study at locations in Lake Worth, Boca Raton, Palm Beach Gardens and Belle Glade.

Lynn Women’s Basketball Inks First for 2013 By Chad Beattie BOCA RATON, Fla. – Looking to build off the success of a NCAA Tournament appearance, Lynn University head women’s basketball coach Niki Washington proudly announced the first member of her Class of 2013 to sign. Fredinna “Nina” Guillaume joins a squad coming off its first Sunshine State Conference regular season title. “I could not ask for a better person or player to represent Lynn as the first member of our 2013 recruiting class than Nina [Guillaume],” said Washington, who will begin her fifth year at Lynn in the upcoming season. “She comes from a successful high school program where her coach, Cindy Richardson, is known for instilling a strong work ethic and preparing her players for basketball at the college level.” A 5-foot-11 power forward from Colonial High School in Orlando, Fla., Guiallaume averaged doublefigures in scoring as a junior and senior while also pulling down

nearly eight rebounds per game. She was named the 2012-13 Metro Conference Player of the Year and garnered Orlando Sentinel First Team All-Orange Country accolades as she helped lead her team to the Florida High School Athletic Association 8A State Semifinals. Guillaume then capped off a career in which she scored over 1,200 points and grabbed 500 rebounds by earning Florida Association of Basketball Coaches All-State

Basketball Team recognition. “Nina is very aggressive and strong, so a lot of players don’t want to deal with that type of physical play and exertion all game,” Washington added. “She just wears you down physically, which eventually wears on you mentally. She’s exactly what we’re missing in the post; some grit and fire coupled with a tremendous skill set.”

The Fighting Knights posted an 18-10 overall mark while going 11-5 in SSC play to set a program record for wins in a season. In addition, Washington became the first coach in program history to garner SSC Coach of the Year recognition. Lynn returns eight letterwinners, including starters Charla NelsonJames, Tylar Tracy, Zachara Bailey and Shatorria Baker.

Panthers Are Rewarded For Mediocrity; Get $4.2 Million for New Scoreboard By: Pedro Heizer The list of teams asking the government for money just keeps growing. The Florida Panthers argued that that the county should fork up $4.2

million to build a new scoreboard… and they won. The $4.2 million, according to Broward County, will come from hotel bed taxes.

The current scoreboard has been in a gift or as capital improvement. Not place since the BB&T Center opened one. We’ve taken loans out, but we’re in 1998. The arena was almost entirely responsible for those. It’s their building. They own it.” paid for by the county. I’m confused though, if the Panthers However, as part of their 30-year lease, the Panthers pay about $4.6 are responsible for the upkeep of the million in rent, and are responsible for arena, what are they asking the County its upkeep of the for a gift? Have they earned it? George Richards of The Miami arena. T e a m Herald has obtained this chart from the p r e s i d e n t Panthers, which they claim represents Michael Yormark the economic benefits a new scoreboard has said that if would bring to the arena and the county. This is absurd, sports teams should there is a new scoreboard, the only be allowed to receive public funding NHL promises if they preform on the field/ice. to bring the draft to Sunrise within the next three years, and will also put Sunrise back in the mix for a future AllStar Weekend. The arena, Yormark says, desperately needs the upgraded video and audio capability. “We have puts tens of millions of dollars into this building since it has opened,” Yormark said. “The county has not put one dollar into this building as

South Florida needs to stop rewarding mediocrity, haven’t we learned enough from the whole Miami Marlins fiasco? The Dolphins want public funding to upgrade Sun Life? Sure! Just win the AFC East two times in the next four seasons and you get your money. The Panthers want a brand new scoreboard? Sure! Just finish two seasons above .500 and it’s all yours. According to the Panthers, the new scoreboard would feature super-sized high definition screens sandwiched between two LCD ribbon rings.

Fort Lauderdale Gets First Win of 2013 Season, Beat Minnesota United FC 2-1 The Fort Lauderdale Strikers defeated visiting Minnesota United FC by a score of 2-1 at Lockhart Stadium, Saturday night in front of 4,323 fans. Early goals from Mark Anderson and David Foley secured victory for the Strikers, who finished the game down a man following Stephane Guillaume’s red card in the 58th minute. “We fought hard and we knew

they were going to come at us and they threw numbers at us but you’ve got to give our whole team credit,” said Strikers’ head coach Daryl Shore. “They dug in and this shows we’re capable of doing good things.” Mark Anderson opened the scoring for the hosts inside of two minutes after collecting a ball from Jemal Johnson at the top of the box before firing a shot past Daryl Sattler, off the post and into the goal. David Foley doubled the Strikers’ advantage in the 14th minute, chasing down a long ball from Manny Gonzalez and tucking his shot into the back of the net. The assist was the first as a professional for first-year Strikers’ midfielder Gonzalez. In the 16th minute of the match the game was delayed due to lightning in the area and resumed after a 64 minute stoppage. Just four minutes after play resumed, Strikers forward David Foley appeared to sustain an upper leg injury and needed to be subbed off. During first half stoppage time, the Strikers’ Stephane Guillaume was issued a Sports

yellow card for retaliation after a tackle and the half ended with Fort Lauderdale ahead 2-0. In the second half, the teams stayed on the offensive with Fort Lauderdale and Minnesota fighting for every ball. One of these challenges ended with Guillaume being tagged with his second yellow card of the match, causing him to be ejected in the 58th minute.

United FC would need just 10 minutes from that point to score their first goal, as in the 68th minute, Simone Bracalello sent in a cross from the right side that forward Pablo Campos was able to put a head on and direct a shot behind Strikers’ goalkeeper Jeff Attinella. Emboldened by their score, United FC continued to press and put numbers forward. They hammered the Strikers’ defense producing 10 shots with Attinella making five saves in the second half and six on the night. Fort Lauderdale was able to hold on and earned their first victory of the season. Fort Lauderdale takes over sixth place in the league and will next play at Lockhart in the second round of the 2013 Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup. The Strikers’ next matchup however, requires a trip to San Antonio to face the Scorpions for the first time at the brand new Toyota Field on Saturday, May 18, with an 8:30 p.m. eastern kick off.
