COMMUNITY Partnership Will Help 6,000 Students Have A Smoother College Commute Transportation costs and limited transit accessibility restrict students’ capabilities to access college campuses, which can hinder their progress and the likelihood of successfully graduating. Florida Atlantic University is leading a first-time transportation collaboration with Broward College, Palm Beach State College, the South Florida Regional Transportation Authority (SFRTA, which operates Tri-Rail), Palm Tran, and Broward County Transit to improve southeast Florida’s transit ecosystem for college students and ultimately student success and retention. FAU has received a $375,000 implementation and research grant from The Kresge Foundation – one of five grants awarded by the Kresge Education Program – to enable colleges and transit agencies to identify, address and evaluate transportation solutions for students. FAU and collaborators will plan, launch and evaluate transportation solutions for 6,000 participating college students in Fort Lauderdale, Boca Raton and West Palm Beach. Local students who use transit often face lengthy travel and wait times due to limited bus and train schedules, while many more students who buy vehicles spend their limited incomes on car payments, gas, insurance and vehicle maintenance in a highly congested region. Of the 140,000 students at the three participating institutions, more than 40 percent received Pell grants and more than 50 percent are students of color. With its partners, FAU will first engage a transit app firm to customize a mobile app that helps users overcome the fragmented public transit system by recommending trip plans that combine real-time data on all existing modes of transit (buses, trains, walking, biking and Uber/Lyft). A second phase will layer in new transit options, such as new shuttle schedules and electric scooters, to address identified gaps in the transportation ecosystem. FAU transportation researchers will examine the effects of the app and any new transit solutions on students’

commuting behavior and on their success in higher education. “We are excited to join forces with our college and transit partners to deliver transformative results for 6,000 participating students in Broward and Palm Beach counties. This grant will enable us to develop innovative ways to reduce students’ transportation costs – both in time and money – as well as increase credit accumulation and year-toyear student retention,” said John Renne, Ph.D., principal investigator, an associate professor in the School of Urban and Regional Planning, and director of the Center for Urban and Environmental Solutions (CUES) within FAU’s College for Design and Social Inquiry. “At the field level, our research will add to the body of knowledge on transportation solutions in higher education literature and on student success in transportation literature.” As one of two implementation and research grants awarded by the Kresge Foundation, FAU was selected because of its ambitious scale in terms of the number of students it serves and the multi-city, multi-agencies collaboration and innovative transit solutions. In addition, if proven effective, the project’s partners plan to sustain and scale the transit solutions through a mix of institutional support and public dollars, and ongoing partnerships between higher education institutions and public transit agencies. Furthermore, because the FAU project leaders are transportation experts and not higher education experts, their publications will introduce to the transportation field the idea that transportation planning solutions have the potential to affect student success. Kresge’s Education Program is committed to aligning and strengthening urban higher education ecosystems, which consist of interconnected sectors that, together, impact student outcomes. These include colleges, government agencies, nonprofit social providers and transit agencies.

Popular TV Personalities Suzanne Boyd and Eric Roby Return to CBS12 with New Local Talk Show Veteran newscasters turned talk show hosts, Eric Roby and Suzanne Boyd, return to CBS12 with a new show that the popular team will produce and host for the West Palm Beach, Fla CBS affiliate. The duo spent nearly two decades as an anchor team and left the CBS12 anchor desk about a year ago to produce Rise+Live with Roby and Suze. The halfhour show will be seen every Friday at 9:30 AM on CBS12 and its sister station CW34. The morning talk show focuses on what makes South Florida a great place to live, work and vacation. For the past six months, the talk show has been seen live on Facebook, YouTubeand www.riseand.livewith a steadily growing fan base. Impressively, the show already garners an audience comparable to local newscasts. With the catchphrase, “Making Mornings Fun Again”, Rise+Live with Robyand Suzeincludes a live studio audience, DJ and open bar that features local bartenders and restaurants. “We are thrilled to be back on CBS12,” said Suzanne Boyd. “Our goal

www.bocaratontribune.com

was always to have Rise+Livedistributed by a TV station, but to have it happen this quickly is a bit of a surprise.” Eric Roby continued, “Our success with an online audience has been tremendous and beat our expectations. We will continue to broadcast on our digital channels, but expanding to a traditional TV platform will help us grow even faster.” The show’s expansion does not mean drastic changes to the format that has made it an instant success. Rise+Livewill continue to broadcast live from its home studio inside the Heart of Delray Gallery in Delray Beach, Fla and live on location for special events. “The show will have the same feel and fun segments, except Suze will just have to watch her mouth. On the internet you can curse, but on TV, the FCC frowns upon it!” laughed Roby. “It takes an entire team of professionals to make this show work. Many of them are friends we met over the years while working at CBS12. To be able to produce and host a show that will air on the station where it all started makes this even sweeter,” said Boyd.

Quadriplegic Veteran, Paralympic Athlete Earns Engineering Degree

For Carlos Leon, life has been filled with the unexpected. From serving for the military in Iraq to a traumatic accident that left him quadriplegic, he has faced adversity time after time and powered through these major challenges only to meet success. That drive carried him across the stage on Dec. 12, when he received his bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering. Leon, 35, signed up for the U.S. Marine Corps after graduating from Coconut Creek High School. A parachute rigger in the third radio battalion, he was responsible for packing and maintaining personal parachutes and jumping out of military planes. His service brought him to Iraq in 2004, where he served for one year in the radio reconnaissance platoon. After returning home in May 2005, his journey took him to his next station in Hawaii. It was then the unthinkable happened. On June 18, 2005, a traumatic swimming accident in the ocean left Leon paralyzed from the neck down. Diagnosed with quadriplegia, doctors told him he would never walk again. This life altering incident did not hinder Leon’s motivation. Just one year after his accident, Leon attended a sports summit in 2006 hosted by the U.S. Department of Defense in San Diego, where he decided he wanted to compete in the Paralympic Games one day. He immediately started training relentlessly, rebuilding his strength and working to regain movement in his arms in order to compete. His dedication paid off, even enabling him the ability to walk short distances. “If something is easy, I don’t want to do it,” said Leon. “I want to do

January 10 - January 16, 2020

things that challenge me. All decisions in life come down to a ‘yes’ or ‘no’ question. People become paralyzed by that question and their current situation. For me, I said ‘yes, I want to try.’” Leon achieved his goal in the summer of 2007, competing in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, in track and field at the Parapan American Games where he won a silver medal in discus and a bronze medal in shot put. He went on to compete in his first Paralympics in 2008 in Beijing, China, in shot put and also competed in the 2011 Parapan American Games in Mexico. Leon received the highest honor when he was asked to attend the 2012 Paralympics in London as the USA athlete ambassador. He met dignitaries from all over the world – an experience he says he will never forget. After retiring from a successful athletic career, Leon set his sights on a major educational goal. He found his next challenge at FAU in spring 2017 after earning an associate degree at Palm Beach State College, where he also fulfilled the role of president of the Phi Theta Kappa honor society. “When I first came to FAU I was intimidated. I never wanted to be treated differently because I was in a wheelchair or had a physical disability,” said Leon. “From the moment I stepped on campus no one ever treated me differently. If anything my professors pushed me further and helped me achieve more. They fully accepted me for who I am.” Following graduation, Leon’s dream is to work for Disney World as an engineer with the ultimate goal of making people happy.

Boca Raton Public Library Launches Its 2020 Signature Initiative, Civic Engagement

and other civic engagement themes, plus offer free computer access to fill out the online Census form. Children will vote in a special “mock election” featuring literary characters to learn about the political process. Both libraries will feature rotating displays of civic-themed books, films, and music. “The Boca Raton Public Library is launching a yearlong signature initiative on Civic Engagement to help local residents participate effectively in the democratic process,” says Manager of Library Services, Ellen Randolph. “Providing unbiased and nonpartisan information has always been one of the roles of a public library.

Helen Babione is Still as Caring, Gentle as she was 60 Years ago Mention the name Helen Babione to anyone who has been in South Palm Beach County for more than 30 years and they will say she successfully ran a funeral home in Boca Raton for many years. More importantly, they will describe her as a soft spoken woman with a generous spirit, a tireless community servant and the architect behind several civic organizations in the area. Sixty years ago, Ms. Babione pledged to give her greatest effort to promote and defend the joy of achievement and the dignity of service in her community. Today as she turns 91 in March, she continues to embody the essence of the women of Soroptimist, which is perhaps best interpreted as ‘the best for women’: effective and dedicated to helping those in need. Just recently, the sisters of the Boca Raton-Deerfield Beach Chapter of Soroptimist International honored

her with their Lifetime Achievement Award. Ms. Babione was a charter member in 1960. For more than 30 years, I referred to her as the gentle giant. She is a true life-changer who spent much of her time working, volunteering and dedicating herself to programs and causes that benefit women and children. In addition, she gave birth to several civic organizations that have improved the lives of thousands of people in our community. In fact, it would be difficult to find a civic group in South Palm Beach County that has been around for the last 40 years that Ms. Babione did not have a hand in its formation. Among her list of accolades are the Boca Raton Woman’s Club, the Kiwanis Club of Boca Raton and both Horses and the Handicapped and the Society for the Disabled. She is a life member of the Debbie Rand Memorial Service League and member of the Caridad Center.

Ms. Babione also started the Honor Your Doctor Luncheon of the Downtown Rotary Club to recognize physician leadership and excellence in healthcare as well as to raise scholarship monies for nursing and medical students at Florida Atlantic University, Lynn University and Palm Beach State College. My first introduction to Ms. Babione was in the late 1980s when she was in her prime. The area was not as saturated with nonprofits, and the handful that were doing something, stood out. She was a newsmaker not only because she and her late husband of 55 years, Robert, operated the funeral home but she was a “mover and shaker”. She was passionate about causes she believed in and she was convincing. I once listened as she spoke eloquently and passionately from the

podium to a roomful of women at the old Country Club. Like a respected gospel evangelist, she made an appeal and those women, without hesitation began writing checks and making pledges for her cause. Over the years, I was blown away repeatedly by her continuous generosity and support for those less fortunate, especially the disabled. I admired her gentle spirit humility and wanted to emulate her. I soon learned that she celebrates her birthday six days before me so we share the same zodiac sign. Our community is much better place because of Ms. Babione, and I am grateful to have her as an inspiration. C. Ron Allen can be reached at crallen@Delraybeachtribune.com or 561665-0151.

POSITIVE LIVING By Robert J. Tamasy

One Thing We All Could Use In The New Year All around the world, clocks and calendars are counting down. By this time next week, we will have entered another year, either bidding a fond farewell to the year just passed or simply saying, “Good riddance!” Each new year represents an opportunity for a fresh start. If the past year was a successful one, it is a chance to build on that success. If not, we can resolve to fix what was broken. Since we only get one shot at each new year, we typically seek to maximize the “newness” by reflecting on the past, taking a deep breath, and then plunging into whatever the next year has to offer. With that in mind, if you were to identify the most important things you hope to achieve during the coming year, what would they be? Greater profits? A long-awaited promotion? A job change? One thing many of us might not

January 10 - January 16, 2020

include on such a list is peace. Not world peace, since that is something we have little if any control over. Living in a world filled with turmoil and chaos, it seems unlikely that will change anytime soon. But amid the continual upheaval that surrounds us, is it possible to attain inner peace that external circumstances cannot touch? In search of this, some turn to spiritual alternatives, such as meditation or mysticism. Blocking out the external, physical world to cultivate our internal, spiritual selves. There are many books, websites and workshops for those who choose such options. These may be helpful, to one degree or another. However, there is one time-tested, enduring source of peace that countless millions of people through the centuries have found for connecting both the spiritual and the physical worlds in which they

live. Here are some of the many peacegiving promises we find in the Bible: Peace through Jesus Christ. The Scriptures called Jesus the “Prince of Peace” (Isaiah 9:6). Nearing the conclusion of His earthly ministry, Jesus promised to give them a kind of peace unlike anything they had ever experienced. “Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid” (John 14:27). Peace beyond all human comprehension. Sometimes the challenges and hardships of everyday living seem without solution. How can we experience peace when enduring such difficult times? The apostle Paul, no stranger to adversity, offered this assurance for followers of Jesus: “Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with

www.bocaratontribune.com

thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus” (Philippians 4:6-7). Peace in the midst of trials. We often regain a sense of peace when difficulties subside, but Jesus promised His followers they could enjoy peace in the midst of them. “I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world” (John 16:33). Peace: a promise, and a command. Those of who profess faith in Christ are instructed not only to believe assurances of peace, but also to act on those promises. “Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace” (Colossians 3:15).

Honoring our Military Event at Mae Volen Center

I attended the honor our military event at Mae Volen Center. It was so delightful to see so many veterans in attendance. They enjoyed a delicious lunch and a great DJ who was one of the Four Aces group. This group may be older, but boy you should have seen them jitterbug on the dance floor. So much fun!

The Ever-Changing Tools Of The Trade The “tools” I was given for my first job in public accounting included an adding machine, pencils, and a pad of green columnar paper. The only computer I recall was a $1 million albatross located at a client’s office that no one could figure out how to use. How the times have changed since then! Today, my laptop computer is about the size of my former adding machine, capable of putting that $1 million dinosaur of a computer to shame. My laptop has eliminated the need for an adding machine, I rarely use a pencil for anything, and the green accounting paper has been replaced by software with a capacity for doing work we could not have imagined during the first years of my career. What is most interesting about this is how along with not being able to anticipate today’s advancements in decades past, we know that technology continues to present us with new tools and resources that we cannot envision right now. Just when we start thinking we have “arrived” in terms of technological breakthroughs, we learn about some new innovation. This is true not only for the workplace, but also for every aspect of our personal lives. If it has been a few years since purchasing a new car, we find ourselves amazed at new additions that make driving safer and more comfortable. Advances in communications move so quickly, it is almost impossible to keep pace with them. All of this newness continues to amaze us, but the Scriptures tell us we can eagerly look forward to discovering new things in the spiritual realm as well. In Isaiah 42:9, God said, “See, the former things have taken place, and new things I declare; before they spring into being I announce them to you.” If we look at the “book of begin-

nings,” the Old Testament book of Genesis, we read about God’s work of creation, how He started with nothing and created an entire universe and proceeded to create the world we know, along with everything in it – foremost of all, humankind. Finally, Genesis 2:1-2 tells us, “Then the heavens and the earth were completed in all their vast array. By the seventh day God had finished the work he had been doing, so on the seventh day he rested from all his work.” However, this did not mean God forever ceased from His plan to create and oversee the wonders that we experience every day. As Jesus Christ told His followers, “My Father is always at his work to this very day, and I too am working” (John 5:17). Best of all, this work is not limited to a broad, general sense. God’s work of “newness” takes place in the lives of each of His people every day. He can and desires to perform an act of recreation in us as well. As the apostle Paul wrote, “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come!” As the seasons change, we see a continual march of new replacing the old. And as the Spirit of God works in our hearts, we can experience new life – new desires, new motives, new values and new strength – moving in to replace our old lives that brought us so much failure and frustration. The future tools of our trades, the resources we utilize for performing our daily jobs, are usually announced in a very rudimentary form. However, if we pay attention and are receptive, we can be prepared for the new things God has declared that He will do in us and through us, for His glory, whether it is where we work or where we live.

Although it is known as one of South Florida’s top luxury shopping destinations, Town Center is quickly becoming known for its culinary and creative offerings as well. One of the newest experiences to set up shop is craft beer and wine bar, Prosperity Town Center, serving up six to eight draft beer selections exclusively from Prosperity Brewers in Boca Raton, as well as cider and kombucha, and a full list of domestic and imported wines available by the glass or bottle.

PBC Commissioners Declare Jan. 12 as Palm Beach State College Day The Palm Beach County Board of County Commissioners has approved a proclamation declaring Jan. 12, 2020 as Palm Beach State College Day to commemorate the 10-year anniversary of the institution’s latest name change and its impact as an educational pillar in the community. Commissioner Melissa McKinlay presented the proclamation during the commission meeting Jan. 7. On hand to accept it were a group of PBSC trustees, staff and Palmer, PBSC’s Panther mascot. McKinlay, who recently used her leftover campaign funds to create a scholarship for students, lauded Palm Beach State and the Florida College System for their work to provide quality and affordable education despite what she said is “a very challenging legislative environment” for them. “I look forward to working with our legislative affairs team and your legislative affairs team to make sure you get the funding that you need to continue to do what you do.” The proclamation highlights pivotal moments and achievements for the College, which changed its name from Palm Beach Community College on Jan. 12, 2010 to reflect its new degree program offerings. The College began offering its first baccalaureate degree, the Bachelor of Applied Science in Supervision and Management, in fall 2009. Five hundred students were accepted in the program, and 340 enrolled in courses that semester. Today, in addition to the BAS in Supervision and Management with concentrations in General Management, Health Management, Entrepreneurship and Project Management, the College also offers a Bachelor of Science in Nursing and a Bachelor of Applied Sci-

ence in Information Management with concentrations in Database Administration, Security & Network Assurance (IT Forensics) and Project Management. To date, PBSC has awarded 2,776 bachelor’s degrees. The College hopes to add additional bachelor’s degrees in high need areas. Last summer, trustees voted to seek approval from the State Board of Education to offer a Bachelor of Science degree in Cardiopulmonary Science and a Bachelor of Science in Human Services. If given the green light from the State Board of Education and then the Commission on Colleges of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools, its accrediting body that also must approve the measure, the programs could begin as early as this fall. Barbara Miedema, chair of the PBSC District Board of Trustees, spoke on behalf of the College. President Ava L. Parker, J.D., was in Tampa at a meeting with the state education commissioner and unable to attend. She highlighted the College’s $1.1 billion economic impact on the county and its students. Just this past fall term, the College awarded nearly 3,000 degrees and certificates, and 900 went to first-generation college students. “We truly do inspire hope and transform lives. It’s not just what we say. It’s what we do,’’ she said. “Without Palm Beach State College so many students would not have the ability to go to college, and we train them not just for the jobs of today, but for the jobs of tomorrow and, particularly in allied health fields.” PBSC opened in 1933 as Palm Beach Junior College and as Florida’s first public community college. As its programs and course offerings expanded, the College changed its name to Palm Beach Community College in 1988.

The City of Boynton Beach will temporarily modify the disinfection process utilized to treat its drinking water from Saturday, January 11 through Friday, January 31, 2020. Customers may notice a slight chlorine taste, or odor, in their tap water. These temporary conditions will not cause adverse health effects. Those sensitive to the taste, or odor, of chlorine, can place an open container of drinking water in the refrigerator for a few hours to allow the chlorine to dissipate.

www.bocaratontribune.com

Users of home dialysis machines, owners of tropical fish and managers of stores, and restaurants with fish and shellfish holding tanks are advised to seek professional advice as the method for removing chlorine residuals differs from removing chloramine residuals from tap water. This is an annual preventative maintenance process in order to maintain the City’s high standard of clean water distribution. Please call 561.742.6964 for further information.

SPORTS Conference USA announces FAU’s 2020 football schedule

After almost three weeks since the Florida Atlantic University football team won their second Cheribundi Boca Raton Bowl in the past three years on Dec. 21, Conference USA officially announced the Owls schedule for the 2020 football season on Wednesday, Jan. 8. This season will be the first for new Owls head coach Willie Taggart, who was hired on Dec. 12 when former FAU head coach Lane Kiffin decided to take the University of Mississippi job after three seasons with the team. While Taggart has been busy recruiting future players and managing his coaching staff, expectations will be high, especially when this will be the team’s 20th season operating. FAU will open the 2020 season at the University of Minnesota on Thursday, Sept. 3, where the two teams will play each other for the fifth time in history. The Owls are 1-3 all time against the Golden Gophers and have not played against one another since 2008 when Minnesota won 37-3 in their home stadium. Following Minnesota, the Owls will return home for the tenth season playing in FAU Stadium, as they face Stony Brook University on Saturday, Sept. 12, before traveling to play Georgia Southern University on Sept. 19. The

non-conference opponent schedule will then end with a home game against the University of South Florida on Sept. 26, where Taggart formerly coached at from 2013 to 2016 and now where former defensive coordinator Glenn Spencer and former offensive coordinator Charlie Weis Jr. both hold the same positions. From there, the Owls will begin playing C-USA opponents, as they take on the University of North CarolinaCharlotte at home on Oct. 3, and at the University of Southern Mississippi on Saturday, Oct. 10, with a bye-week to follow. The bye-week comes at the right time for FAU, as they will look to avenge their only loss from the 2019 season when they travel to take on Marshall University on Oct. 24. Then, the following Saturday is Halloween, where the Owls will start a back-to-back home game slate of the University of Texas-San Antonio and Western Kentucky University on Nov. 7. To close out the regular season, the 19th Shula Bowl at Florida International University will take place on Nov. 14, prior to the last home game against Old Dominion University on Nov. 21 and then the last game on Nov. 28 at Middle Tennessee State University.

Sailfish Downed by Bucs in Final Seconds

The Palm Beach Atlantic men's basketball team faced a tough test in the form of the Barry Bucs who entered the game on an eight-game winning streaking. The Sailfish had a strong showing in front of the Rubin Arena crowd, including a chance to win it at the buzzer; however, Darhius Nunn's 3-pointer fell short resulting in Barry (12-2, 6-1 SSC) coming away with the 91-89 victory. The home crowd was treated to a dramatic finish. With Barry leading 91-88 with six seconds left, Nunn was fouled on the inbounds pass which sent him to the line. The senior sank the first shot to cut the deficit to two, then missed the second shot on purpose to give PBA (10-4, 3-3 SSC) a chance. It seemed as if the ball glanced off a Barry defender and went out of bounds, but the referee made the tough decision to award the Bucs the ball. On the ensuing inbounds play, Nunn drew an offensive foul to give possession back to the Sailfish with three seconds remaining leading to the missed buzzerbeater. After shooting 9-of-16 from beyond the arc in the first half, PBA regressed to the mean going 2-of-14 from deep in the second half. The Sailfish also lost the rebounding battle to Barry 49-24, including 17 offense rebounds for the Bucs. Nunn led PBA in scoring with 23 points along with eight assists, four rebounds and two steals. Jules Jasmin was right behind him with 22 points and three rebounds. De'Ondre Jackson followed

with 21 points of his own with three 3-pointers. Dan Largey added 14 points including four 3-pointers. PBA had the hot hand from 3-point range to start the contest. The Sailfish converted on their first two possessions, hitting from downtown to take a quick 6-0 lead. An early 11-2 run with 3-pointers from Nunn and Largey gave PBA a 20-10 lead through a frantic first six minutes of play. Barry cut the deficit to two with a 12-6 run with six minutes remaining in the first period. PBA tried to keep its distance as the 'Fish ended the half on a 6-2 run to take a 48-41 lead going into halftime. The Bucs made their move midway through the second half as an 8-0 run gave Barry its first lead of the game with 10 minutes remaining. Nunn kept the Sailfish in the game with two 3-pointers that kept Barry from pulling away. The 'Fish regained the lead as an 8-3 run with four made free throws by Jasmin made it 83-82 PBA down the stretch. Ultimately, the game finished with five lead changes, most of them coming in the final minutes. PBA did win the turnover battle forcing 17 Buccaneer miscues resulting to 19 points off turnovers. The Sailfish also continued to perform well at the freethrow line shooting 22-of-29 from the charity stripe. The Sailfish end their homestand on Saturday against Rollins. The game at Rubin Arena will tip-off at 4 p.m.

Edition 443 - 15

Baseball Lands Three on Preseason Awards Watch List The Collegiate Baseball Newspaper recently released a list of South Region Preseason All-Americans, players to watch and newcomers to watch. Among the honorees were Palm Beach Atlantic's own Brandon Seltzer, Derek Schwimer and Sebastian Salado. Seltzer, the 2019 Second Team NCBWA and ABCA/Rawlings All-South Region honoree, was one of only seven South Region players to be named as a preseason All-American by the paper. The senior led the Sailfish in a plethora of offensive categories last season, including hits (66), triples (3), home runs (10), RBIs (43), total bases (112), slugging percentage (0.569) and stolen bases (10). His 0.335 batting average ranked second on the team, as Seltzer collected All-Conference Second Team recognition after starting all 49 competitions for the 'Fish last season. Schwimer was included on the South Region Players to Watch list. A member of the 2019 ABCA Rawlings

Gold Glove team, Schwimer did not commit a single error last year, while registering a trio of outfield assists. The Port St. Lucie native led PBA with a 0.342 batting average after transferring in from Palm Beach State College. Schwimer contributed to the offense with 64 hits, 38 runs, 27 RBIs and a team-high 26 walks drawn. Salado notched recognition as the third baseman among the South Region Newcomers to Watch honorees. The Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic native comes to Palm Beach Atlantic following a two-year stint at Hillsborough Community College. As a freshman with HCC, Salado batted an impressive 0.286, while recording 36 hits, scoring 22 runs and knocking in 16 RBIs through 40 contests. The baseball team will begin its season at home later this month when the squad hosts Tusculum on January 31st. First pitch is set for 6:00 p.m.

Offer only applies to new Fixed Rate Choice HELOC. Home equity products offered by Amerant Bank, N.A. are only available for property located in Florida and Texas and are subject to credit and property approval. Applicants must be U.S. citizens or resident aliens and have a valid Social Security Number or Tax Identification Number. Property insurance is required; if the collateral is determined to be in an area having special flood hazards, flood insurance will be required as well. Texas homestead properties are limited to 80% combined loan to fair market value for home equity financing. Amerant Home Equity Lines of Credit (HELOCs) feature variable rates based on the Prime Rate, as published in the Wall Street Journal (4.75% as of 10/31/2019), plus a margin. Amerant HELOCs have a 10-year draw period during which advances may be made, followed by a 10 or 20 year repayment term during which the line is no longer accessible and minimum monthly payments fully amortize the outstanding balance on the line. Rates, program terms and conditions are subject to change without notice. For more information on home equity products, refer to “What You Should Know about Home Equity Lines of Credit,” a consumer information booklet prepared by the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. Consult your tax advisor concerning interest deductibility.     *Fixed-Rate Choice Feature: With the Fixed Rate Choice Home Equity Line of Credit (FRC-HELOC), using the Fixed Rate Loan Option (FRLO) during the draw period Borrowers can convert outstanding variable interest rate balances to fixed rate loans with terms of 1, 3, 5, 7 or 10 years, provided the fixed rate term does not extend beyond the expiration of the draw period, resulting in fixed monthly payments on such balance at a fixed interest amortized over the selected term. The minimum FRLO amount is $1,000 in Florida and $4,000 in Texas. No more than 5 FRLOs may be outstanding at one time. 1 Introductory fixed rate of 2.75% Annual percentage rate (APR) shown applies only during the first 5 years to advances made at closing from a new FRC-HELOC and converted to a FRLO with a 5-year repayment term at account opening, up to a maximum of $100,000. Offer cannot be combined with any other offer or discount. Thereafter, rate is variable and based on the Prime Rate published in the Wall Street Journal (4.75% as of 10/31/2019), plus a margin. Payment example for a FRLO of $25,000 at 2.75% will have a payment of principal and interest of approximately $446.45 per month for 60 months. 2 This APR is based on a 10-year repayment term and reflects (1) an “auto-pay” discount of 0.25% for Amerant Bank checking account customers and (2) an “initial draw” discount of 0.25% for making a $50,000 minimum initial draw at closing and maintaining that balance through the first 3 billing cycles. To qualify for the “auto-pay” discount, payments must be made via automatic payment from a Amerant Bank checking account which must be open and funded prior to closing. The discount may be terminated upon closure of the qualifying checking account. Your APR may vary based on credit history, property type, occupancy, lien position, line amount and other factors. At no time will the APR exceed 18%. All other advances will be subject to the variable rate APR according to the terms of the account agreement. Discounts are subject to change at any time and cannot be combined with any other offer or discount.  Proceeds from advances made at closing cannot be used to pay off existing Amerant loan balances. The minimum line amount is $25,000. Certain eligibility requirements and restrictions apply for lines greater than $1,000,000. 3 Amerant will pay all closing costs for lines of $250,000 or less, and up to $2,500 for lines greater than $250,000 ($500 for Texas homestead properties). A $75 annual fee is charged on the first anniversary of the account and every year thereafter (no annual fee for Texas homestead properties). If your HELOC is closed within 24 months of account opening, a $500 early closure fee will be charged to the line (not applicable to Texas homestead properties). Initial escrow-related funding costs may apply.
