On January 11, community leader Al Zucaro filed paperwork declaring his candidacy for Boca Raton Mayor.

Political newcomer Marc Allen Brown who filed to run against incumbent Mayor Susan Haynie in the upcoming municipal elections has withdrawn from the race, according to city documents. Mayor Susan Haynie will not have an easy path to re-election, as the clock hit the final minutes, Al Zucaro announced his bid for Boca Raton Mayor. Construction on a project that is designed to help improve traffic flow at the Turnpike’s Glades Road interchange will begin January 3. The monthly meeting of the Palm Beach County Municipal Clerks Association was hosted by The City Of Boca Raton, Florida and held at the Spanish River Library. Municipal Clerks keep our cities organized and records available for review. The sheer volume of information they are responsible for is quite daunting but, they somehow keep it all straight. Mayor Haynie and Councilman Robert Weinroth joined Deputy City Manager George Brown, city commutations manager, Chrissy Gibson and the entire City Clerk staff in welcoming the group to Boca Raton. Boca Raton was featured on “Watters’ World,” which aired Saturday at 8PM, 11PM & Sunday at 2AM and followed up by an appearance on Monday, December 19th, on The O’Reilly Factor on Fox News, as Jesse Watters discusses how the City Of Boca Raton is responding to the Freedom From Religion Foundation display in Sanborn Square Park.

Community Lecture Series at FAU on Holocaust and Judaic Studies

Florida Atlantic University will present two lectures on Holocaust and Judaic Studies in January 2017. The lectures will take place in the Performing Arts Building, room 101, 777 Glades Road, Boca Raton campus. These lectures are free and open to the public. No reservations are required for any of the lectures and more information can be found by calling 561-297-2979. On Sunday, Jan. 15, 2017 at 4 p.m., a lecture titled “Reflections of a Holocaust Survivor,” will be presented by Norman Frajman. Frajman was born in the city of Warsaw, Poland, which was occupied by the Germans in 1939. Norman was only 10 years old at that time. He experienced and witnessed the heroic Warsaw Ghetto uprising in 1943 and together with his mother, sister and other survivors, was taken to the extermination camp of Majdanek where his mother and only sister were murdered, along with extended family numbering more than 100 people. From Majdanek, Norman was shipped to the Skarzysko Concentration Camp where he worked as a slave laborer in an ammunition factory. The next stop in his survival ordeal was the infamous extermination camp of Buchenwald. His suffering continued in the concentration camp Schlieben. As the Russians were getting closer, he was forced on a Death March. He was liberated at the age of 15 by the Russians and eventually was able to immigrate to the United States. After a long separation, Norman was reunited with his father who had survived the war for years in the Soviet Union. The second lecture will take place on Sunday, Jan. 22 at 4 p.m. Profes-

sor Alvin H. Rosenfeld will present “The Longest Hated Renewed: Reflections on Today’s Antisemitism.” Rosenfeld, professor of English and Jewish Studies at Indiana University, Bloomington, received his Ph.D. from Brown University in 1967 and has taught at Indiana University since 1968. He holds the Irving M. Glazer Chair in Jewish Studies and is director of the university’s Institute for the Study of Contemporary Antisemitism. He founded Indiana University’s Borns Jewish Studies Program and served as its director for 30 years. Rosenfeld’s books include “Confronting the Holocaust: The Impact of Elie Wiesel,” “A Double Dying: Reflections on Holocaust Literature,” “Imagining Hitler” and his most recent book is “The End of the Holocaust,” which was published in April 2011. In recent years, he has also been writing about contemporary antisemitism, and some of his articles on this subject have evoked intense debate. Rosenfeld has served as an editorial board member of various scholarly journals, including Holocaust and Genocide Studies, as well as a board member and scholarly consultant to various Jewish institutions and organizations, including the Anti-Defamation League; the American Jewish Committee; the Lilly Endowment; the Wexner Heritage Foundation; and the Koret Foundation. He held a five-year U.S. presidential appointment on the United States Holocaust Memorial Council (2002-07) and presently serves on the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum’s Executive Committee. Rosenfeld has lectured widely in America, Europe and Israel.

Al Zucaro Enters Mayoral Race

On January 11, community leader Al Zucaro filed paperwork declaring his candidacy for Boca Raton Mayor. Zucaro is no stranger to the halls of local government. He served for 8 years, 1995 to 2002, as a City Commissioner in West Palm Beach and as the President of the City Commission in 2000 and 2001. Over his more than 3 decades in Palm Beach County, Zucaro has served on many boards and agencies including but not limited to the Tourist Development Council, the Film and Television Commission, Palm Beach County’s Planning and Zoning Board, the Workforce Alliance Board, the Economic Council, and many more. He was then, and is now, a powerful voice in protecting the interests of the people. With BocaWatch, he, along with many other concerned and dedicated residents, have brought about significant change to Boca Raton. The organization has given a platform to the citizens and

has taken on developers with special interests to ensure growth within Boca Raton is responsible and sustainable. This change has not come easy. His candidacy is premised on one simple idea: putting residents first… always. “Boca Raton is a special place,” said Zucaro in a statement. “Change is inevitable but change and overdevelopment should not destroy the history and charm of Boca Raton. The Mayor, as the symbolic head of Boca Raton’s representative government, must provide that leadership; must provide the protection for the residents against the ever-present winds of change. This leadership is missing.” Al moved to Boca Raton nine years ago with his wife Yvonne Boice, never imagining he would re-enter politics, but he could not let one more day go by without addressing the issues facing voters. According to a release, Zucaro promises to keep the resident fully informed as to the city actions and activities impacting their quality of life. He will welcome the resident to actively participate in the governmental process; to have a greater voice in the future growth of our City, his adopted city, a city in which is now his home. “Let’s hold our city accountable. The people can hold me directly accountable to them. They, not the developer class, set my priorities and they must call me to task if I deviate from that promise. My policy is to bring common sense back to city hall, and putting residents first, always” Zucaro concluded.

So Refreshing Knowing There is Hope for the Needy One of the finest things about the Christmas season was the generosity it stirs in all of us. The economy was not kind to many last year and it was heartwarming to see so many people generously reach deep into their pockets to help others. Their acts of selflessness and goodwill, which was evident throughout our community recently, made the holiday season magical. While enroute, to an important gathering in town where four of my mentees were scheduled to speak (it was part of their prize as winners in an oratorical contest), I received a call asking for “a huge favor.” Someone had encountered a family of four that was destitute - no food, little money and no toys for the children. Four days before Christmas and not even a tree. I promised the caller I’d get back to her shortly. After verifying the story, I fired off an email to a few people in my immediate circle. Three minutes after hitting the send button I received the text, “I have $400 let’s

take them shopping.” Another read, “Get them whatever they want up to $100 and let me know. I will give it back to you.” A third wrote, “I will take care of all the toys for them.” My body jumped into overdrive mode while my brain was still at the crossroad. I started thinking; ‘I really want to be with the kids because this is a big deal. But with four days before Christmas, this could be a test of a lifetime from God.’ One of the donors and I arranged to meet the woman at Costco. She was nervous, to say the least. But we assured her she was in good hands. We shopped and two shopping carts later the woman broke down in tears. “I did not expect this,” she said that she walked through the door with two shopping carts. “This is unbelievable. Thank you.” To some, this was surprising. To me, this was all in a day’s work. I receive anywhere between two and three calls like this each week. I am able to address most with a simple phone call while some end up being long-term projects.

I was quite impressed by the generosity of the people who offered to help this family. In a community where the need is as great as it is, I bear witness that there are many people with big caring hearts especially during the season of giving; people who still believe in reaching back and helping out those less fortunate. Later that night, I received another text: “I just checked the email and was wondering how could I help?” I responded: “Thank you, issue addressed within minutes after email went out.” That’s the joy of being a part of this community. In times of need you can always depend on someone to come to your rescue. I am proud to say that in my 26 years of working in the trenches with the poorest of the poor in south Palm Beach County, of all the times I have asked for a favor for this community, I have only been told No once. And as the good word says, sometimes the Lord answers with Yes, No or Not now. (Coincidentally, about 15 years later, that No was recently changed to a Yes).

A text from a dear friend, who happens to be the supervisor of this woman, captures the essence of the gesture best: “You all are such a blessing and amazing! Thank you, thank you, thank you for all that you have done to bless this lady and her family. This has literally made my Christmas and the rest of my year. I am so touched by that level of generosity.” I spent 30 years in the United States Navy Reserve helping people and 24 years reporting the news at one of our local dailies helping people along the way. I must say neither is more rewarding than what I find myself doing these days helping the most vulnerable children and their families in Palm Beach County. It is so refreshing knowing that there is hope for those who are in need as our community will always come to their rescue. May there be gladness in the hearts of all and we wish you, our readers and families, a blessed and bountiful year.

POSITIVE LIVING By Dr. Synesio Lyra, Jr.

Enjoy Life While You Have It! A truly grateful person recognizes that life is a gift, and each moment of every single day offers all living individuals wonderful varieties of enjoyment at manifold levels. In spite of limitations which one’s health may impose, anyone can make the most of every opportunity! Creative people are never bound to a single format for living life to the maximum degree. In fact, they’re glad and grateful that they have plenty from which to choose. That way, life is more than just an adventure; it’s that also, but combined with a vast assortment of formats and experiences. Any person who can act genuinely alive, and truly grateful for the gift of life, will continuously go after new adventures, adequate to their age-level and health condition, and doable by someone prepared to January 13 - January 19, 2017

experiment. Nobody needs to be a slave to life, even when certain routines need to be observed. Certain experiences may be repeated as many times as one may desire, or discarded in favor of something else, or even when there’s nothing else one desires to try. For those prepared to utilize their creativity, countless new possibilities will continually appear. Life affords us enjoyment compatible with each age level and physical condition, whether what it entails is done alone or in the company of others. Even tasks which are accomplished with some regularity, can take on a new format, and made into significant, novel adventures. If living is to be maintained as an enjoyable activity, personal discipline must be

observed. I firmly believe that many people who complain about life in general, and lack the initiative to try new adventures, are those who tire themselves unnecessarily due to inadequate discipline, or who don’t take the initiative to inquire about new things to do, or who are not imaginative enough to ask the right questions, and do some necessary research in considering new alternatives to what they had done for years! Of course, a positive mental attitude is always a “must” as one gets up in the morning with readiness to face any challenge the new day shall bring, with creative plans to divide the hours into meaningful blocks, reserved for activities both planned and potential. Obviously, there always will be a steady menu of regular activities which precede, accompany, or take place only at the

end of work hours or other inbuilt operations of any given day. With pen and paper on hand, ideas can be recorded and each day can be apportioned for one or some of the activities being looked at to enhance one’s day. Individuals with a curious mind and a ready body to implement certain plans, will never face a boring day, nor hours with little or nothing to fill them in meaningful ways! What can’t be forgotten is that life in fleeting, one’s strength gradually diminishes, and illness and death are inevitable parts of life in the world. But as long as one is alive, even with limited powers, that one can and should enjoy life to the fullest. After all, ours is a beautiful world!

According to the Heart Association, more than 80,000,000 Americans have some form of heart disease. Four culprits – smoking, diabetes, hypertension and high cholesterol – play a major role in contributing to heart disease by causing inflammation in the heart’s arteries.

If you smoke cigarettes, quit. You’ll also protect those around you from secondary smoke (what everyone else inhales when you smoke) and tertiary smoke (residue on clothing, utensils, toys, etc). Controlling blood sugar and insulin levels is key to supplying your body with the nutrients it needs. Diabetes can irritate the arteries and cause blockages, reducing the flow of blood, oxygen and nutrients to the heart muscle and, ultimately, the rest of your body. Likewise, cholesterol, triglyceride levels and blood pressure also affect your blood vessels. When controlled, the potential for blockages is reduced. Start by making these basic changes to your diet: • Limit salt • Avoid fried foods • Cut out sweets/crackers

There’s a difference in the types of sugars you eat– foods contain good (complex) and bad (simple) carbohydrates. Good carbohydrates are difficult for the body to break down, taking longer to elevate blood sugar. Bad carbohydrates break down easily, quickly elevating blood sugar. Some examples of good carbs are:

• Beans • Fruits • Vegetables • Whole grains • Wild or brown rice Avoid bad carbs, which include: • Sugar • Corn syrup • Fruit juice • Candy • Sweets (with white flour) What’s a heart-healthy diet? I recommend the following for a healthy heart: • Vegetables – unlimited each day. Prepared hot or cold and not breaded or fried. Limit sugary vegetables like corn, beans and other legumes. • 6 ounces of skinned chicken or fish a day. Limit red meat, veal, pork or lamb to 6 ounces 3 times a month. • Three servings of fruit a day. Limit certain fruits that contain more sugar. One banana is so sugary it equals two servings; 12-14 grapes equal one serving.

Marla Olmstead began painting when she was 2 years old and was considered to be a child prodigy when she was only 4. Her paintings were sold for thousands of dollars after her art was first discovered while hanging in a coffee shop. Christo did not begin his work in the arts until adulthood in the 1950s. He escaped his home country of Bulgaria as a refugee and is most well-known for his collaborations creating sculptures with fellow artist Jeanne-Claude.

How To Escape The Drama And The Tension

Everywhere we look, we see drama, tension, fear, and a new crisis seemingly every minute. Forced to live and work in this oppressive environment, we can either become overwhelmed with anxiety, or take proactive steps to minimize external influences on us. I have chosen the latter. Here is what I am doing: First of all, I have determined not to waste energy on things I cannot influence. Feeling helpless can be a very debilitating emotion, so whenever I realize things are beyond my control, I choose not to spend time agonizing over them. My second step is actually the flip side of the first. I endeavor to exert influence in areas where I can make a difference, especially when I can see the possibility of an eternal impact. Like you, I find myself inundated with information overload – from TV, radio, the Internet, emails, texts, billboards and other sources. It is impossible to process it all. At the same time, we all get many requests for help, many of them very worthwhile. There are lots of valid concerns, as well as countless good and noble causes. But like you, my resources are limited; I cannot do everything, even if I wanted to. So I have applied the two principles above as a way of determining my priorities – what is the best investment of my time, talent, and treasure. As a result, here are some of the decisions I have made: For 40 years I have subscribed to the respected business periodical, the Wall Street Journal, but this year stopped. For 30 years we have received the Omaha World Herald every day, but this year we

stopped. And a long time ago I stopped watching national television news. Please do not get me wrong. I am not an isolationist or a head-inthe-sand person. I have simply come to realize that the “news” is slanted entertainment with a desire for higher viewer ratings so they can sell more advertising – and I no longer want to get sucked into the drama. God wants us to be like the “men of Issachar” described in 1 Chronicles 12:32, because they “understood the times and knew what their nation needed to do.” So how can I do that? First, I make the effort to spend time in the Bible (I also read several devotionals) each day because, as King Solomon wrote, “there is nothing new under the sun”(Ecclesiastes 1:9). In the process, God through His Spirit guides, protects, and provides for me. Next, I check a few Internet news sources twice a day and read periodicals I have found useful for international, national and local news coverage. Very sporadically my wife and I will watch the first 10 minutes of the evening TV news, but again limit that because we do not wish to get caught up in the drama of managed news coverage. Throughout each day I strive to remind myself that the Lord is completely in control of everything, so the issue is not “What is happening?” but rather, “How will I respond to what is happening?” I have found that only then, when I am being filled with God’s truth, His Spirit and His love, does the overflow of my life reflect His character.

This month’s speaker at the Tiger Bay Club luncheon at City Fish Market was Dennis Kozlowski, former CEO of Tyco industries. He spoke of going from the head of this major company to being incarcarated and going to prison. He also spoke about the many charities he is involved in Boca Raton. A very interesting speaker who had it all at one time! Also at this meeting Al Zucaro, husband of Yvonne Boice Zucaro, announced that he has filed to run for Mayor of Boca Raton.

New Year’s Eve started out quietly with four girlfriends having dinner at Nino’s in Boca Raton. After dinner ended at 7:30 pm we decided to go to City Fish Market for a New Year’s toast. We got the last table in the lounge and ordered a decadent Chocolate Mousse Cake and coffee followed by a glass of Pinot Grigio. At 11:30 they passed around hats, horns, necklaces and broke out large bottles of champagne on the house. I met a friend of mine who was one of the bartender’s, Anthony Robinson. All in all it turned out to be a fun New Year’s Eve after all.

Welcome to the Ben Affleck show. Ben Affleck directs, stars and adapted Dennis Lahane’s novel “Live By Night” for the screen. Affleck is Joe Coughlin, an Irish boy gone bad in 1920s Boston. Joe is the youngest son of esteemed Boston police Chief Thomas Coughlin, played by Brendan Gleeson. Something snapped in Joe when he was “fighting Huns” in 1917 in World War I. “I will never take orders again,” Joe says in voiceover. “I came out an outlaw.” Joe may be an outlaw in the lawless Boston of 1927, but he is a dapper one. He is one of the lieutenants of Irish-American mob boss Albert White (Robert Glenister). Joe plays with fire by launching an affair with Albert White’s townie girlfriend, Emma Gould (Sienna Miller). You play with fire and you get burned. It comes as no surprise Albert White learns Joe has cuckolded him. White’s goons beat Joe within an inch of his life. Then after a botched bank job and a wild car chase with three cops killed, Joe is wounded, arrested, and thanks to his dad’s influence given a lenient three-year stretch in prison, which ironically saves him from White’s goons. When he is released he decides to go to the other side by signing up with

rival Italian mobster Maso Pescatore (Remo Girone). Maso likes Joe, and decides to send him on a mission to Tampa, Florida to straighten out the bootlegging business. So begins a chapter two for Joe and the viewer. It’s fun to see an imagined view of Florida, and director Affleck makes the most of it. Joe gains an ally and sidekick, Dion Bartolo (Chris Messina) and a beautiful new girlfriend, Graciela (Zoe Saldana). Graciela and her brother Estenban Suarez (singing star Miguel) smuggle Cuban rum into Florida. Soon Joe becomes the rum king of Ybor City with the implied permission of Police Chief Figgis (Chris Cooper). He stands up to despicable KKK leader RD Pruitt (Matthew Maher). Things come unraveled when the chief ’s lovely daughter Loretta (Elle Fanning) goes off to Hollywood to become a star and becomes a junkie and prostitute instead. As so often happens in these cases, when Loretta goes through rehabilitation she emerges a crusader against sin, booze and godlessness. Prohibition to the dismay of its promoters caused the exact opposite of its desired effect. It made bootlegging and criminal activity flourish. Nowhere was that more apparent than in Florida, which was wide open to all manner of illicit activity. All things come to an end. The end of Prohibition came when Franklin D. Roosevelt took office in 1933. There is a spectacular gun battle near the end of “Live By Night,” and then the story tapers down to a melancholy end. While this is by no means a masterwork, it is good to look at, and it is of particular interest to students of Florida history. File it under noble effort. Two and a half stars

A View From The City Council By Robert Weinroth

Look Forward to the Opportunities 2017 Will Bring New Year’s Day has the same effect as a sorbet served as an intermezzo between courses to cleanse the palate. The new year of the Gregorian calendar gives us a moment to reflect on the year just past and to plan for the year just ahead. Of course, the old Yiddish proverb, “man plans, God laughs,” comes to mind as we recognize the future is unpredictable and the best we do is plan and be prepared to make course corrections as external forces blow us in new directions. On a national level, most expected the presidential campaign to come down to a contest pitting Hilary Clinton against Jeb Bush. So much for conventional wisdom! Even President Obama got it wrong when in mid-February he stated the electorate would never pick Donald J Trump to be president because “they recognize that being president is a serious job.” And, even after Gary Johnson memorably quipped, “what’s Aleppo?” (a remark that took the wind from his campaign’s sails), the international community appeared totally impotent as it could do little more than watch the death and destruction of the city of Aleppo, home to the last pocket of resistance to Syrian dictator, Bashar Assad. With hundreds of thousands dead and millions on the run, Europe and the Middle East are left to provide refuge for those displaced. Syria’s chaos incubated the rise of ISIS and cannot be ruled out as a contributing factor in the increased number of international terror attacks. Turning our attention closer to home (where we can feel comfort in having direct influence over events), the news in 2016 was generally positive. Unemployment in Florida fell below 5% in the 4th quarter of the year. Palm Beach County (and more particularly Boca Raton) continues to elevate its attractiveness as the venue of choice for companies seeking to relocate from the north with its educated workforce, low taxes and an unsurpassed standard of living with great schools, safe neighborhoods and unparalleled parks and year-round recreational opportunities.

There’s a lot to be excited about in our downtown as new residential units come online and the new Hyatt Park Boca opened for business. Next year, the Mandarin Oriental Hotel and Residences will further raise the city’s cache. Over two decades ago, the decision to redevelop the downtown was approved by the voters. The plan was to create an urban core that would attract a critical mass of around 10,000 residents to make the downtown commercially viable. Twenty-five years later we are seeing the befits of the redevelopment initiative as property values continue to climb, restaurants and small businesses in the downtown are prospering and cultural activities (live theatre, a downtown art museum, and more) are attracting the necessary audiences to make them viable. The New Year offers challenges and opportunities as we look toward our future. Plans are under way to bring more recreational amenities online. We are also looking to redefine and update the meaning of public transportation. With the new residents living in our downtown, we now need to promote the idea of leaving private passenger vehicles parked. This will require us to provide dependable choices (circulators, point-topoint transport within the downtown to supplement the services currently offered by the Downtowner and other alternatives to driving). In the not too distant future, don’t be surprised to see autonomous vehicles on our streets. Near term this could be a driverless circulator. Our city is seeking funding from FDOT to make this a reality in the near future. Within the decade, we will likely have the opportunity to buy a “subscription” to an autonomous service making vehicle ownership a less desirable alternative. Sounds a bit like the Jetson’s but the future is coming faster than you might think. In the meantime, let’s look forward to the challenges and opportunities that 2017 will bring.

Council Member Robert S Weinroth was first elected to the Boca Raton City Council in March 2014. He was re-elected to a full three-year term, without opposition, in March 2015. He is also a city representative on the Palm Beach Metropolitan Planning organization (MPo) where Mayor Susan Haynie is currently Chair. Mr. Weinroth was appointed to the Palm Tran Service Board and has served as an appointed member of the Boca Raton Airport Authority. Council Member Weinroth is married to Pamela with four boys and two dogs in their blended family.

Kennedy (co-authored with Caroline Kennedy)” and two volumes on “President Lyndon Johnson’s secret White House Tapes.” With more than 110,000 followers, Beschloss has the largest Twitter following of any historian on earth.

Chair Yoga Effective Way to Treat Osteoarthritis For the millions of older adults who suffer from osteoarthritis in their lower extremities (hip, knee, ankle or foot), chair yoga is proving to be an effective way to reduce pain and improve quality of life while avoiding pharmacologic treatment or adverse events. A new study, conducted by researchers at Florida Atlantic University and published in the current issue of the Journal of the American Geriatrics Society ,is the first randomized controlled trial to examine the effects of chair yoga on pain and physical function in older adults with osteoarthritis. For the study, researchers randomly assigned 131 older adults with osteoarthritis to either the “Sit ‘N’ Fit Chair Yoga©” program developed by Kristine Lee or a health education program. Participants attended 45-minute sessions twice a week for 8 weeks. Researchers measured pain, pain interference (how it affects one’s life), balance, gait speed, fatigue and functional ability, before, during and after the sessions. Results from the study found that participants in the chair yoga group, compared to those in the health education program, showed a greater reduction in pain and pain interference during their sessions, and that reduction in pain interference lasted for about three months after the 8-week chair yoga program was completed. The 8-week chair yoga pro-

gram also was associated with reductions in fatigue and improvement in gait speed during the study session, but not post session. “With osteoarthritis-associated pain, there is interference in everyday living, limiting functional and social activities as well as diminishing life enjoyment,” said Juyoung Park, Ph.D., co-author and co-principal investigator of the study, Hartford Geriatric Social Work Faculty Scholar and an associate professor in FAU’s College for Design and Social Inquiry. “The effect of pain on everyday living is most directly captured by pain interference, and our findings demonstrate that chair yoga reduced pain interference in everyday activities.” Regular exercise has proven to help relieve osteoarthritis pain, however, the ability to participate in exercise declines with age, and many dropout before they can even receive benefits. Although the Arthritis Foundation recommends yoga to reduce joint pain, improve flexibility and balance, and reduce stress and tension, many older adults cannot participate in standing exercises because of lack of muscle strength, pain and balance as

well as the fear of falling due to impaired balance. Chair yoga is practiced sitting in a chair or standing while holding the chair for support, and is well suited to older adults who cannot participate in standing yoga or exercise. “Currently, the only treatment for osteoarthritis, which has no cure, includes lifestyle changes and pharmacologic treatments that are not without adverse events,” said Ruth McCaffrey, D.N.P., A.R.N.P., co-author and emeritus professor in FAU’s College of Nursing. “The long-term goal of this research is to address the nonpharmacologic management of lower extremity osteoarthritis pain and physical function in older adults, and our study provides evidence that chair yoga may be an effective approach for achieving this goal.” The overall goal of this interdisciplinary program is to decrease pain, and improve physical and psychosocial functions of elderly individuals with osteoarthritis who are unable to participate in other exercise and yoga programs. Park and McCaffrey conducted the study with Patricia Liehr, Ph.D., R.N.,

co-principal investigator, co-author and a professor in FAU’s College of Nursing; David Newman, Ph.D., co-author and an assistant professor in FAU’s College of Nursing; and Joseph G. Ouslander, M.D., co-author, senior associate dean of geriatric programs and chair and professor of the Department of Integrated Medical Science in FAU’s Charles E. Schmidt College of Medicine. “The potential impact of this study on public health is high, as this program provides an approach for keeping community-dwelling elders active even when they cannot participate in traditional exercise that challenges their balance,” said Liehr. Osteoarthritis is the most common form of arthritis in older adults. Consequences associated with osteoarthritis include pain, joint stiffness and functional limitation of activities of daily living. Osteoarthritis is the leading cause of long-term disability among older adults and affects more than 33 percent of people over the age of 65 in the U.S. Annually, osteoarthritis accounts for more than 11 million physician and outpatient visits, 662,000 hospitalizations and an estimated $81 billion in costs for medical and surgical treatments. The World Health Organization estimates that osteoarthritis affects about 10 percent of men and 18 percent of women worldwide.

The Friends of the Boca Raton Library Donates Money to Boca Raton Public Library

The Friends of the Boca Raton Public Library recently presented a gift of $48,320 to fund youth services programs, summer reading, and new technology and databases in 2017. The Friends of the Library is a non-profit, volunteer organization dedicated to supporting BRPL. They raise money through memberships to the Friends organization, grants, and book sales at the bookstore in the Downtown Library, 400 NW 2nd Avenue. “2017 marks the Friends’ 27th anniversary (1990-2017), and we thank our members, donors and bookstore customers for their continued financial support of our organization,” stated Cyndi Bloom, Presi-

dent of the Friends Board of Directors. “Through their contributions, we are able to generously support the library’s mission.” “Thanks to the support and funding of the Friends’ members and volunteers, BRPL has been able to bring many wonderful opportunities to the community of Boca Raton,” said Ann Nappa, Manager of Library Services. “In 2017, most of the Friends’ gift will be used to expand BRPL’s Discover Studio, originally funded by the Friends, to create exciting new classes for children, tweens and teens that will teach coding, robotics and other 21st century skills.” This latest gift from the Friends provides almost $27,000 for youth services, which is earmarked for summer reading, new software and hardware, the annual Mother Daughter Tea, and other reading initiatives for children, including $5,500 for books given to children, tweens and teens in the library’s book clubs.

Bones Found in Undeveloped Area

Boca Raton, FL - On Monday, December 26, 2016 at just before 3:00 p.m., Boca Raton Police officers responded to a suspicious incident in an undeveloped area behind 2650 North Military Trail. An FPL worker met with arriving officers and told them he found what appeared to be human skeletal remains in a brush covered area near the railroad tracks. The remains may have been at the site for a while and appeared to belong

to a human. Boca Raton Police detectives called the Palm Beach County Medical Examiner's Office and their forensic anthropology investigators responded to collect the bones. There is currently no information available regarding the person’s identity or cause of death. If anyone has information about this case, please call Detective Lazarus Kimsal at (561) 620-6144 or Palm Beach County Crime Stoppers at (800) 458TIPS.

sports Boca Raton FC Adds Front Office Heart of a Lion; Botley Nails Game Veterans in Advance of Big 2017 Winner as Lynn Escapes Saint Leo

Boca Raton Football Club (BCFC), winners of four major trophies in two years is excited to announce the addition of two veteran soccer executives with local community ties to the club’s front office. Both Omar Garcia and Kartik Krishnaiyer join BCFC effective immediately. Omar Garcia joins the club as Director of Operations. Garcia worked in various front office capacities with the Fort Lauderdale Strikers of NASL from 2011 to 2016. With the Strikers Garcia worked extensively throughout the south Florida community building relationships and partnerships for the Strikers. He also served a critical role in marketing and operations for the club. “I’m excited to be joining Boca Raton FC and look forward to a big 2017 for the club and the community.” said Garcia. Kartik Krishnaiyer joins Boca Raton FC as the VP for Communications. Krishnaiyer who also serves as the Senior Writer and podcast co-host for World Soccer Talk was the Director of Communications for the North American Soccer League (NASL) from January 2010 until May 2013. He most recently served as a

Media Relations and Broadcast advisor for the Fort Lauderdale Strikers. He has spent the last decade working in various capacities around American soccer. “As a south Floridian, I am excited about working with Boca Raton FC to help create the best grassroots soccer experience our region has ever enjoyed. Local soccer fans and those around the sport will be impressed by the experience at this club and what we will offer in 2017,” said Krishnaiyer. “We are delighted to have added two very well-known names in the South Florida soccer market to join our staff for the upcoming NPSL season,” said club president, Douglas Heizer. “Both Kartik and Omar are professionals of the highest form and their credentials speak for themselves, and having both of them on board will do wonders for our club as we continue to grow.” Boca Raton FC faces São Paulo on Sunday at IMG Bradenton and continues the qualifying process for the 2017 Lamar Hunt US Open Cup in the coming weeks. In 2017 Boca Raton FC will also compete in the National Premier Soccer League (NPSL) for the first time.

Botley had a strong first half with 11 points, but fell cold from beyond the arc throughout the first 15 minutes of the second stanza. The senior caught fire down the closing stretch, scoring eight of Lynn’s final nine points. He finished with 21 points and three assists. Guard Allen Baez was the team’s leading rebounder with a career-high six while also boasting a team-high in the assist column (6). He tacked on six points and a steal in 31 minutes of action. Vieux Kande joined Botley in double figures with 13 points on 4-of-5 shooting (5-of-6 FT) and brought down five boards. After a strong shooting performance in the first half from both teams, the second half saw both sides struggle to find the bottom of the net with only a combined 53 points scored.

Saint Leo’s Antoine Tobias notched the game-high in points with 23 behind an impressive 9-of-11 performance from the field. He was averaging just 3.7 points per game entering the night. BEYOND THE BOXSCORE: Ball control played a critical role as Lynn turned the rock over only eight times (ties season low) while forcing the Lions into 16 turnovers. Lynn has won eight of its last 10 games. Three of the last four games between Lynn and Saint Leo have been decided by three points or less. Saint Leo suffered its second consecutive loss for the first time since the seasonopening weekend. UP NEXT: Lynn is back at home this Saturday, Jan. 14 for a 4 p.m. SSC matchup against Tampa.

Arthur Adler, Pro Sports Marketing Icon and Local Philanthropic Leader, to Headline B&P Industry Icon Breakfast Amid premium networking, business leaders and professionals will have a unique opportunity to hear from professional sports marketing icon Arthur Adler, who also served as Co-President of the New York Yankees and produced albums for recording legends at Columbia Records. Adler, also locally prominent for founding the Boca West Charitable Foundation, which he now chairs, will keynote the season’s second Lewis Katz Industry Icon Series event on Wednesday morning, January 25, 2017. Well over 100 local professionals attended each of the past four seasons’ widely acclaimed Industry Icon events and they’ll gather once again in Zinman Hall on the Federation campus at 9901 Donna Klein Blvd. in Boca Raton. Breakfast (dietary laws observed) and networking will begin at 8:00 a.m., and the program will start promptly at 8:30 a.m. The couvert for the morning is $36 per person. Named for a preeminent icon of industry and philanthropy, the Lewis Katz Industry Icon Series is a program of the Jewish Federation of South Palm Beach County’s Business & Professional Division (B&P). This season began with former Lehman Brothers Icon Ron Gallatin, and last year we featured Royal

Caribbean CEO, Richard Fain; Chairman & CEO of Georgia Aquarium, Michael Leven, and Miami Marlins President, David P. Samson. Adler was a leading entrepreneur in the media and sports industries for four decades, serving as Co-President of the New York Yankees, and as Vice President of Marketing for both the Yankees and Islanders. In the 1960s, he worked at Columbia Records, producing albums for legends such as the Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan and Aretha Franklin. From 1977 to 2003, he ran his own sports advertising company, Adler Communications, acquiring radio rights for major teams including the Mets and Yankees. He also created Sportsec Marketing and

later bought Spencer Sports Marketing, overseeing in-stadium advertising at 15 sports facilities nationwide. In 2004, Adler retired and moved to South Florida, where he founded the Boca West Charitable Foundation in 2010. He is now chairman of the Foundation, which has granted $3 million to over 25 charities, including the Jewish Federation of South Palm Beach County, helping thousands of atrisk children. "We’re extremely proud that Arthur Adler will headline the second installment of our 2016-17 series, and are excited for the opportunity to learn from this true icon,” said Lauren Cohen, Industry Icon Series Co-Chair. “His industry insights, professional advice and philanthropic leadership

will be of high interest and great value to all attendees across B&P members' broad range of industries and professions. We are excited to continue the quality programs upon which we have built our strong reputation.” “In just a few years, the B&P Division, now co-chaired by Gregory Gefen and Tracy Kawa, has built a diverse community of South Palm Beach County business leaders and professionals who look forward to gathering on a regular basis,” said Lauren Cohen’s co-chair, Jeff Shavitz. “We learn together as we make meaningful professional and personal connections through high-level networking opportunities, informative programs with industry experts and philanthropic activities that just keep proving how good they are for business as well as our community.” To RSVP, visit bpnetworking.
