eral Highway at Palmetto Park Road, and in Sanborn Square Park. Federal Highway, between Palmetto Park Road and NE 2nd Street, will be closed on Friday, January 18, from 1pm until Sunday, January 20, it will re-open by 10pm.

commitment to keep the buy/sell or manufactured work out of the show is of upmost importance, as this has become somewhat of a nationwide issue with buy/sell creeping into our juried art shows.

As part of our commitment to include art education into the Boca Raton Fine Art Show™, there is a Budding Artists Art Competition for grades 6-12 or ages 9-19. Young artists are encouraged to create their original and personally handmade art, as they begin to learn the rules of being part of a professional art show. The young artists are invited to speak with the professional artists in the show, too, and it exposes the families to great art. All entries of the Budding Artists Art Competition are publicly displayed in the Budding Artists Art Competition tent. There is $250 in Budding Artists Art Awards.

The public is invited to nominate their favorite doctor by completing a nomination form online at the www. website and paying $40 per nomination or $100 for 3 nominations; all nominated doctors will be invited to attend the luncheon as a guest. Tickets for the luncheon are available to the public for $75.00 per person. The event is a fundraiser for the Helen M.

Schmidt College of Medicine at FAU, Christine Lynn Nursing School at FAU, Lynn University and Palm Beach State College. This year’s Honor Your Doctor luncheon is chaired by Janice Williams with co-chairs Joan Weidenfeld and Ingrid Fulmer. Honorary Chairs are Holli Rockwell, Jerry and Terry Fedele and the Honorary Physician Advisor is Dr. Nicolas R. Breuer. The fundraiser was the brainchild of Helen M. Babi-

one, who is still an active member of the GFWC and passionate about raising funds to support the medical community in Boca Raton. “We are so pleased to come aboard as the new partner in this important endeavor which perfectly aligns with our mission of supporting FAU’s Charles E. Schmidt College of Medicine and our Health & Wellness initiative,” said Rotary Club Downtown Boca Raton President Alan Kaye. “At the recommendation of a Rotary Club Downtown Boca Raton member, luncheon committee member and esteemed Doctor, Robert Colton M.D. proposed the great idea of having doctors honor doctors with a nomination,” added Kaye. “We are so energized with the new affiliation with the Rotary Club Downtown Boca Raton and the new venue of Broken Sound Club. The Honor Your Doctor luncheon is a great opportunity to recognize our medical community and at the same time raise needed funds for deserving medical and nursing school students to attend our local universities,” said Chair Janice Williams. “The goal is to have them engaged in the community early on and remain in practice here in South Florida.” Gwen Herb president of GFWC;

“Veteran” tells of Road to Victory: Hope and Courage in WW II

Living history re-enactor Peter Colon tells about World War II during appearance at Willow Theatre in Sugar Sand Park. BOCA RATON -- The Willow Theatre at Sugar Sand Park Community Center kicked off its spring “Afternoons at the Willow Series” Jan. 15 with a lecture by Peter Colon about World War II.

Continued from page 1 College of Medicine’s inaugural “Your Medical School” celebration honoring Dick and Barbara Schmidt. “This historic gift by an FAU faculty member Dr. Morton Levitt and his wife Cindy will help us continue to recruit and educate the best and brightest men and women who will become our future doctors,” said FAU President Mary Jane Saunders. “We are truly grateful for their generosity, vision and leadership.” Morton Levitt, M.D., chair of FAU’s Charles E. Schmidt College of Medicine’s Integrated Medical Science Department and professor of Clinical Biomedical Science is a board-certified pathologist whose impressive background includes serving in the National Cancer Institute’s Carcinogenesis Bioassay Testing Program, serving as a hospital executive and chief medical officer as well as spending more than 20 years in the United States Air Force. He is recognized nationally for his expertise in medical and pathology education, advocacy, and medical policy and governance. “I am both humbled and blessed to stand before you this evening and bring to fruition what has been a lifelong dream to me,” said Levitt. “I am very proud to be a member of the Levitt Family — a family that

taught me from an early age that charity, philanthropy, and service were the true measure of a person’s success. This gift was made possible because of the philanthropic and charitable vision of my father and mother and their families before them.” The Charles E. Schmidt College of Medicine’s sold-out inaugural event was held on January 5 at The Royal Palm Yacht Club to benefit the medical school’s “Compassionate Care through Education” Medical Scholarship Campaign. “The financial pressures of medical school debt can weigh heavily on a young doctor’s career decisions as well as their idealism,” said David J. Bjorkman, M.D., M.S.P.H, dean of FAU’s Charles E. Schmidt College of Medicine. “Dr. Levitt’s greatest passion is teaching and both he and Cindy are dedicated to the medical profession and to medical education. Their very generous endowment will continue in perpetuity to enable our students to pursue their dreams and goals.” For more information on medical school scholarships, contact Kari Oeltjen, director of development in FAU’s Charles E.

Atlantic Avenue, Delray Beach, and opened fire on my nephew who did not have a chance to protect himself or run for cover. This was a senseless killing for less than $100. I am asking the community for help! The gunmen have not been identified for this heinous crime. The death of my nephew has devastated my sister and other members of my family. I am making a plea to anyone who has information in regards to this shooting to contact the Delray Beach Police Department in efforts to apprehend these gunmen before they kill someone else.

Afflicted by the ‘Verdi Virus’? This week for my column I have decided to share with you a column writen by Robert D. Foster in which I thought it was fantastic. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did! From the life of the operatic composer Giuseppe Verdi comes the story of one night when he performed a piano recital at La Scala in Milan, Italy. After his final piece, the appreciative audience demanded an encore. Verdi, hungry for applause, chose a loud and frilly composition he knew would thrill the audience, even though it was, artistically speaking, inferior music. When he finished, the crowd stood again, roaring its approval. Verdi basked in the extended applause – until he saw his lifelong mentor in the balcony who knew exactly what Verdi had done. His mentor neither stood with the crowd nor applauded. On his face was a pained expression of disappointment. Verdi could almost hear

his mentor saying, “Verdi, Verdi, the examples it presents: how could you do that?” Love for preeminence.

Rehoboam presumed his family legacy and power he inherited would cause the people to yield to his whims. However, having neither political wisdom nor an accurate understanding of his father’s trust in God, Rehoboam died proud and foolish at the age of 58. “And he did evil, because he never did decide really to please the Lord” (2 Chronicles 12:14). How can we overcome pitfalls of pride and ego? Consider 1 Peter 5:5-6: “…All of you, clothe yourselves with humility toward one another, because God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble. Humble yourselves, therefore, under God’s mighty hand, that he may lift you up in due time.” Until next week! .

Choose Peace as Your Best Weapon! You may be permitted to carry a weapon, but you are not authorized to use it at random. With or without any such tools, never start a fight; peace is always attainable if that is your ultimate aim! Pursuing a positive, conciliatory path is the most preferable action in any circumstance a human faces. Indeed, peace is the best weapon for you to employ at all times, whether as an individual or as citizen of a nation!

you alone provoked!

Your insecurity will never disappear nor diminish, if you turn your weapons indiscriminately at others, just because you are scared and feel unsafe. Being mad at somebody else is no reason to act irrationally. Such attitudes, instead, only lead to battles that no one else but

An additional, wise posture to observe at all times is the reasonable, wise command from ages past, which instructs: “Seek peace and pursue it” (Psalm 34:14b cf. I Peter 3:11). It’s in the human heart that peace is born, develops, and makes its impact!

Peace, whether among nations, or between individuals, with family members or acquaintances, will never be secured through intimidation and a belligerent spirit. Much less can that be the case by the improper use of any other provocative weapons at your disposal, such as a vengeful attitude and improper verbiage.

It is there also that bad feelings, the spirit of retaliation and other negative emotions originate, can also be obliterated for the benefit of whoever harbors such attitudes, and also anyone else who could become their victims! Therefore, concentrate your best efforts on peace, not conflict! Avoid a combative mood. Save your energy for necessary battles, not the ones you choose due to your own insecurity. Lashing out at others “is sometimes symptomatic of other frustrations,” as author Ken Sade suggests in his excellent book, “The Peacemaker.” If you concentrate on vengeance or

getting even, you shall never have the mind nor the necessary strength to seek reconciliation, which is the right road to take. Your entire inner being would become adversely affected by your unforgiving attitude. Furthermore, that ugly disposition prevents the resolution of any conflict but, instead, it increases its intensity, and worsen the chances of a reasonable reduction and elimination of tensions! Weapons which inevitably hurt, maim, or kill should be avoided altogether, and by every possible means. Using peace as the rightful weapon shall achieve far better, enduring, edifying results!

How To Be Thankful In Tough Times What do you do when faced with a situation that seems beyond your control? Perhaps business is not going well, you are facing major financial difficulties, or a personal situation seems to defy resolution. What do you do – worry about it? The Bible offers some very interesting insight into this and suggests that instead of worrying, we simply should be thankful: “Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done” (Philippians 4:6). Let’s take a closer look at this advice: 1. Don’t worry about anything. Worrying doesn’t change anything. You could call it “stewing without doing.” There is no such thing as a born worrier; worry is a learned response. You probably learned it from your parents. If not, you learned it from your peers, or you learned it from experience. That is good news – the fact that worry is learned means it can also be unlearned. Jesus says, “So don’t worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will bring its own worries. Today’s trouble is enough for today” (Matthew 6:34). 2. Pray about everything. Use the time you would spend worrying by praying instead. If you prayed as much as you worried, you would have a whole lot less to worry about. Some people think God only cares about things such as how many people attend church or how much money we give to religious causes. But God is interested in everything, even car payments and aching joints. He is concerned with every detail of your life. That means you can take any problem that you are facing to God. 3. Thank God in all things. Whenever you pray, you should always pray with thanksgiving. The healthiest human emotion, psychology experts tell us, is not love, but gratitude. Being thankful actually

increases your immunities; it makes you more resistant to stress and less susceptible to illness. People who are grateful are happy. But people who are ungrateful are miserable because nothing makes them happy. They are never satisfied; nothing is ever good enough. So if you cultivate the attitude of gratitude, learning to be thankful in everything, it reduces stress in your life. 4. Think about the right things. If you want to reduce the level of stress in your life, you must change the way you think. The way you think determines how you feel, and the way you feel determines how you act. So if you want to change your life, you need to change what you are thinking about. This involves a deliberate, conscious choice where you change the channels of your mind, much like you would change the channels on your TV: You can choose to think about the right things, focus on the positive and on God’s Word. Why should you do this? Because the root cause of stress is the way you choose to think. Think properly and positively and you will minimize the stress in your life. When we no longer worry, when we pray about everything, when we give thanks, when we focus on the right things, the apostle Paul assures us the result will be, “The peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus” (Philippians 4:7).

You’ve doubtless heard of Grover Norquist, political terrorist; Let’s the rich get richer and the poor subsist. “Let them the old eat cat food,” his command, “sick babies, and veterans too; Grover, Grover, he’s our man, if he can’t screw them no one can.”

“He’ll cost elections. Can’t let the D’s rule the roost; Let’s give the GOP a boost, forget the pledge throw out the bum; Maybe we can get some done, toss the Tea Party, as well; Their rhetoric smacks of hell, and revolution, Slick politricks are no solution.”

“But time has come,” some Republicans say to dump old Grover, Political ‘Rover,’ a dog of a leader for their line, this time.”

“Let the “Pres” sit down; no Grover distraction, he and Boehner; Take the action to compromise away our cliff, and don’t let Grover Sniff the champagne’s bubbles.”

Boice to Chair PB State Foundation’s STEAM Launch with “The Woz”

Yvonne Boice

BOCA RATON -- Yvonne Boice announced that Apple Inc. co-founder Steve Wozniak will be headlining the Palm Beach State College Foundation’s upcoming event launching a five-year initiative to increase the number of skilled professionals in science, technology, engineering and math, the so-called STEM fields.

co-founded Apple Computer Inc. with Steve Jobs in 1976 and was the designer of Apple’s first line of products, the Apple I and II. He currently serves as chief scientist for Fusion-io, a global data storage and delivery firm. Known as “The Woz,” he is internationally recognized as an inventor, scientist, innovator and philanthropist strongly committed to the arts.

Crime, Treachery and Butchery in 1940s Los Angeles “Gangster Squad” makes “Chinatown” look like child’s play. “Chinatown” if you remember was a dark tale of crime and corruption in late 1930s Los Angeles. “Gangster Squad” is an even darker tale of high-level crime and corruption in late 1940s Los Angeles. Scarier still, it is based on real-life characters. Sean Penn plays the chief bad guy, the treacherous, despicable, murderous mob leader, Mickey Cohen, and Penn does not hold back. Director Rueben Fleischer establishes the ruthless, sadistic character of Cohen in the first few frames of the film. As he begs pitifully for mercy, a Chicago gangster is chained to two cars facing opposite directions. With one last desperate scream from the mobster, Cohen orders the two drives to floor it. The victim is ripped in half.

“Gangster Squad” is the kind of film that makes you cringe, flinch and maybe cover your eyes. The film is so violent it was delayed in the wake of the Aurora massacre because one of the key violent scenes took place in a movie theater. It is now an equally violent scene set in Chinatown. Square-jawed Josh Brolin stars as Sgt. John O’Mara, the ultimate toughguy Los Angeles Police Department cop. O’Mara is hand-picked by Police Chief Bill Parker (Nick Nolte) to put together an undercover police unit charged with fighting Mickey Cohen with his own violent, vengeful tactics. “No names, no badges, no mercy,” the Chief says. O’Mara is married to pretty, very smart Connie (Mirielle Enos), who is pregnant with their first child. When her pleas to not take on the challenge are disregarded, she elects to help her husband by suggesting the best candidates possible for a squad of a half-dozen Dirty Harrys. One of them is Sgt. Jerry Wooters (Ryan Gosling), an absolutely fearless and incorruptible cop. How fearless? Jerry makes a pass at Cohen’s favorite girlfriend Grace Faraday

(Emma Stone) and she takes him up on it. We don’t get to know the other cops as well as they are pretty stereotypical. Three who stand out are Giovanni Ribisi as the brainy family man Conway Keeper, Robert Patrick as the self-styled cowboy Max Kennard and Michael Pena as the obligatory Latino, Navidid Ramirez. There really was a mobster named Mickey Cohen who tried to take over L.A. for evil purposes, and there really was a LAPD Chief named Bill Parker, who organized an elite squad to fight fire with fire. This is simply that true story amped up with violence and gore. You could say it is a sign of the times. Three stars “Rust and Bone” a Very Unusual

Love Story For something considerably more uplifting, consider the unusual, touching love story “Rust and Bone” from prolific French writer-director Jacques Audiard. Matthias Schoenaerts stars as Alain “Ali” van Versch, who leaves Belgium and a dysfunctional wife with his 5-year-old son Sam (Armand Verdue) to try and make a go of it in Antibes, France, where his sister Anna (Corinne Masiero) lives a precarious existence as a part-time grocery cashier. Ali is a tough guy who aspired to be a professional kick-boxer. Because of his boxing expertise he gets a job as a bouncer at a local nightclub. Late one night he rescues a drunken young woman from a brawl. He chivalrously drives her home in her car and does not take advantage of her. Stephanie (Marion Cotillard) is a star trainer at a Marineland attraction where she coaxes killer whales to do amazing tricks. In the middle of the act one of the whales leaps out of the water and lands on Stephanie, who is knocked out. When she awakens in a hospital bed she learns to her horror

January 17, 2013 through January 23,2013

both legs have been amputated below the knee. Sinking into depression, she gives Ali a call. Ali is not fazed by Stephanie’s injuries. In fact he invites her to go swimming and carries her to the water. So begins Stephanie’s healing. Meanwhile through another job Ali meets a shady character named Martial (Bouli Lanners) who convinces him he can make quick cash fighting in brutal underground matches without referees or rules. “Rust and Bone” is about painful injuries to the body, but it is also about the healing power of love; both of a father for his son and of an independent-minded man and woman who ultimately realize they need each other. You could call this a “tough love” story. Audiard has cast just the right actors for the job. Cotilliard is equally convincing as a tough chick and a proud, vulnerable woman. Schoenaerts exudes machismo, but there is an achingly tender side to this tough guy, as we see with little Armand Verdure. This movie is a dandy to share with your Valentine. Three and a half stars “Nicky’s Family” a Truly Moving Documentary For something even more uplifting and downright inspirational we submit the Czech documentary “Nicky’s Family.” Sir Nicholas Winton is living proof the good don’t always die young. Through ingenuity, bravery and persistence as a 29-year-old Winton left his banking job in England to rescue hundreds of Jewish children in imminent peril as the Nazis tightened their grip on Czechoslovakia in early 1938. “This old man saved my life,’ marveled survivor Joe Schlesinger. “I knew nothing about him or that he even existed. He insisted it was nothing to make a fuss about.” “Nicky’s Family” amounts to 669 Czech children spirited away under the noses of the Nazis and relocated with British foster families. Winton had to work fast. He began in March of 1938 and by Sept. 1 World War II had broken out, ending his diplomatic efforts. “Nicky’s Family” blends dramatic rec-

reations with real vintage movies, newsreels and photographs of the inexorable march of Hitler’s armies over Europe, including the horrific blitz that pounded London and its innocent civilians. Amazingly, Sir Nicholas is still alive at age 103. This film is a series of testimonies from the great (The Dalai Lama) to the merely grateful survivors who owe their lives to his selflessness. If there ever were a ‘righteous gentile” it is Sir Nicholas Winton. Four stars The Holocaust Haunts “The Interview” “The Interview” is a memory play by Faye Sholiton about the Holocaust. The Women’s Theatre Project is presenting it through Jan. 20 at the Willow Theatre of Sugar Sand Park. “The Interview” is as the title indicates an interview with an elderly Holocaust survivor named Bracha Weissman (Harriet Oser), being conducted by Ann Meshenberg (Patti Gardner), a daughter of survivors. There is a third character there in spirit and memory only: Bracha’s estranged daughter Rifka (Irene Adjan). It is because of Rifka’s two children that Bracha has finally decided to speak of her painful past for the record for her grandchildren. Christopher Mitchell plays the small, brief role of the videographer. Though we are reminded never to forget, no Holocaust remembrance is as gripping, terrifying or tragic as the real thing. “The Interview” is as much about a mother’s sundered relationship with an uncomprehending daughter as it is about the horrors of the “final solution.” This is an admirably well-acted production, directed by Genie Croft, but if you want to be moved to tears, see “Nicky’s Family.” Tickets are $25.

Experienced gourmet diners have enjoyed the wonderful fare at Kathy’s Gazebo Cafe for some 32 years. Amazingly the success is due, in part to the permanent menu that has not changed in format for all this time. True, daily specials are many and varied but the time tested standard menu is paramount. The menu offers a choice of seven cold appetizers including fresh oysters and fresh clams plus jumbo lump crabmeat, smoked Scottish salmon and jumbo shrimp cocktails. This reviewer elected to taste both the creamy, gentle taste of the goose liver pate and the robust, rough hewn taste of the gazebo country pate – both rich and delightful. The seven hot appetizers feature an artichoke bottom stuffed with crabmeat with a glazed Mornay sauce – a rich yet fragile dish with superb taste. Likewise, the rich crepes royale – crabmeat, shrimp, scallops and mushrooms in their lobster sauce – was lighter and more flavorful than we had experienced in the past. Escargot, in shell, were nice sized with a light garlic butter sauce – tender and tasty. Other offerings include Oysters Florentine, Scampi Provencal, steamed clams or Mussels Poulette. We sampled a smooth vichyssoise, a cool crisp gazpacho and unique lobster bisque served hot with chunks of delicious lobster meat. Gazebo salad with both Boston and Bibb lettuce, mushrooms, heart of palm, avocado and tomato is a pleasant choice as is the Caesar salad with a whisper of anchovy taste in the light cream dressing. For a more robust taste – anchovy strips may be ordered. The house specialty entrée is their ever popular fresh Dover sole, flown fresh from Holland twice weekly. It is absolutely delicious unadorned or you may have it prepared either almandine or meuniere style. One can find no finer

dish so expertly prepared than at this fine bistro. We sampled the fresh sea scallops also done meuniere though they may be had Provencal or Florentine. Though nicely cooked, the taste and texture were a bit under done. The medallions of veal were a fantastic dish – we had it prepared picatta style and found it tender and very tasty. We also tried the calf ’s liver, done medium, producing a rich liver taste. Then we sampled the duckling which was beautifully roasted and served with wild rice and broccoli – superb. Of the seventeen entrees presented, the remaining thirteen offerings include fine fish, chicken, lamb and beef choices plus – our favorite – classic bouillabaisse with its lobster, shrimp, scallops, clams, mussels and snapper in a tomato garlic and saffron broth. This dish we must try in the future as it is the highlight of rustic maritime fare. In addition to the entrees accompaniments five sides are available to choose from. The standard menu desserts – seven in number – include a superior chocolate mousse with deep dark flavor plus a very, very, light crème brulee. Strawberry sabayon, a raspberry pillow, peach melba, crème caramel and a tray of various homemade pastries round out the end to a perfect meal. Owners Gerard Hascoat and Claudio Pedron lead a staff of servers that have, for the most part, been with Kathy’s Gazebo for its entire existence and are extremely knowledgeable and helpful. The bistro seats 150 and is open for luncheon from Monday through Friday 11:30am – 3:00pm. Dinners are served Monday through Saturday from 5:30pm – 10:30pm – closed Sunday. Pricing is commensurate with superior fare. With a full bar and wine menu, Gazebo is located at 4199 North Federal Highway in Boca Raton (561-3936033). As this an experience that one should sample…go and enjoy!! Boca Life & Arts

“I was getting these compliments about how young and fabulous I looked when my hair was pulled back, but when it was down…I didn’t always get those comments,” said the former Mrs. South Carolina. That sent her to the mirror for a second look. She too noticed that when her hair was in a ponytail she looked younger, her face was smoother, and her eyes looked perkier. The tension of her hair being pulled back had a noticeably youthifying effect. But she didn’t want to limit her hairstyles to a monotonous look, so she put her inventors hat on and created The Facelift Band. It took a few tries but then she nailed it! Using clear adjustable bands that attach to a clip very much like a hair extension clip, one secures it above the ears. The band is covered by your other layers of hair and it can be adjusted to the proper tension for you.

Two Democratic U.S. Reps from Florida sworn in to new seats Murphy, Frankel both endorse House Speaker Boehner WASHINGTON, D.C – Two freshmen Democratic U.S. Representatives have taken their seats in the Republican-controlled U.S. House of Representatives.

Congressman Patrick E. Murphy (District 18) and Congresswoman Lois Frankel (District 22) were officially sworn in during ceremonies in Washington, D.C. In one of their first duties, both cast “aye” votes for the return of John Boehner (R-Ohio) to the position of House Speaker. “I am truly honored to have been sworn-in as a member of the 113th Congress,” Murphy told the Boca Raton Tribune. “Over the past year, I have been humbled by the outpouring of support that got us to this point today. It is a privilege to represent the people of St. Lucie, Martin, and northern Palm Beach counties in the U.S. House of Representatives. I look forward to serving the 18thdistrict and will have an open-door policy for all constituents.”

“As the 113th Congress begins, I look forward to working with my colleagues on both sides of the aisle to come together in a bipartiPatrick Murphy san manner to address the

issues facing our nation. Too much was left unresolved in the previous Congress due to partisan gridlock. We not only need to get to work, we need to work together to move America forward.” Also sworn in was Lois Frankel, who takes over the District 22 seat. “During the campaign, I made a promise to you and one that I will always keep. I promised that I would always be on your side.” “As your member of Congress, I intend to do just that, and that starts by always listening to you. I truly want to hear from you.”

Lois Frankel

Murphy defeated incumbent U.S. Rep. Allen West in the Nov. 6, 2012 election. West had been congressman in District 22, but moved to District 18 following redistricting.

Frankel, the former mayor of West Palm Beach, defeated Republican Adam Hasner in last year’s election for the vacant District 22 seat.

Tactical Team arrests two potential burglars

Deon Batts

On Wednesday, January 9, 2013 at about 11:15 a.m., members of the Boca Raton Police Department’s Tactical Team were on routine patrol on Palmetto Park Road near the I-95 interchange when they noticed a car with very dark tinted windows. As an officer followed the vehicle, the driver began to drive erratically, making sudden movements and changes in direction. After observing numerous traffic infractions, officers stopped the car as it entered the parking lot of Boca Raton Regional Hospital, 800 Meadows Road. Officers made contact with the driver, Deon Batts, and the front passenger, who initially said his name was Timothy Vanterpool, but was later identified as Larry Covington. A strong odor of marijuana was coming from the interior of the car during

Larry Covington

this initial interaction. Officers searched the car and recovered a small amount of marijuana from the floorboards. As officers searched Covington, a small baggie fell out of his pant leg. Inside the baggie was a little over two grams of marijuana. When officers searched the trunk of the car, they found a bag which contained various items. When officers questioned Covington, he said he came to Boca Raton to go to the hospital, but Batts intended to commit burglaries. Officers charged both Batts and Covington with loitering and prowling and possession of marijuana. Covington was charged with providing a false name and they charged Batts with an outstanding violation of probation warrant out of Broward County, the original offense was burglary.

Boca Raton Regional Hospital Among Top 5% Of Hospitals In Nation For Nine Years In A Row Boca Raton Regional Hospital announced today that Healthgrades®, the nation’s leading independent healthcare ratings organization, has named it a Distinguished Hospital for Clinical Excellence™ for the ninth year in a row – a claim only 34 of the nation’s 5,000 hospitals can make. This prestigious distinction places Boca Raton Regional Hospital among the top 5% of hospitals nationwide for clinical performance.

Overall, Boca Regional achieved 13 Five-Star Ratings (the highest possible), four Specialty Excellence Awards and #1 in state rankings for Gastrointestinal Medical. The Hospital was also ranked in the top 10% nationally for Overall Cardiac Services, Cardiology Services and General Surgery and in the top 5% nationally for Treatment of Stroke, Overall Gastrointestinal Services and Gastrointestinal Medical Treatment.

This latest accolade for Boca Raton Regional Hospital adds to a growing list of honors. In addition to the 2013 Distinguished Hospital Award, the Hospital is also the recipient of Healthgrades 2013 America’s Best 100 Hospitals for Cardiac Care and Gastrointestinal Care for the second consecutive year.

“What is most significant about this accolade is that it represents the ninth year Boca Raton Regional Hospital has earned it,” said Jerry Fedele, President and CEO of Boca Regional. “This is strong testimony to the dedication and commitment of our physicians, nurses, staff and volunteers give day in and day out to

the patients we serve.” Healthgrades Hospital Quality and Clinical Excellence study, released today, objectively identifies those hospitals with the best overall clinical performance across 27 medical diagnoses and procedures that the organization rates. These 262 top-performing hospitals represent only 5% of the nation’s hospitals and each is designated as a Healthgrades Distinguished Hospital for Clinical Excellence™.

Durbin will manage the assessment, planning, coordination, implementation and evaluation of nursing practices on a facility level. She will also be accountable for ensuring high quality, safe and appropriate nursing care, competency of clinical staff and effective resource management. “We are most confident in Melissa’s talents and abilities,” said Jerry Fedele, president and CEO at Boca Regional. “She is a seasoned professional who will undoubtedly enhance the proud tradition of nursing excellence we have at the Hospital.” Durbin joined Boca Regional in 2006 as executive director for the Lynn Heart and Vascular Institute and the Hospital’s Critical Care and Emergency Services. Prior to that, she was director of Trauma and Critical Care Services at Delray Medical Center. She received her Master of Science and Bachelor of Science in Nursing with an emphasis in Nursing Leadership from Florida Atlantic University.

BOCA COSMETICS GROUP HAS THE ANSWERS FOR BEAUTIFUL HAIR By Diane Feen If you’re like most Floridians going outside has its consequences when it comes to your hair. If you have curly hair it’s not uncommon to look like you just departed a whirling helicopter first thing in the morning. And we don’t have to tell you about the humidity and moisture that permeates the air (and your hair) like flies to a jelly sandwich. Knowing all this, wouldn’t it be nice to stop worrying about your hair care? Imagine going to the beach, playing tennis and swimming without worrying about how your hair will hold up in the post shampoo phase?

That is exactly why a local Boca Raton company called Boca Cosmetics Group, has come up with a solution to help you manage your hair. By using their professional products - Olez INCEPTION and Olez Advanced – and their homecare treatment called Zelo, Boca Cosmetics Group has figured out a way for you to beat the sun frazzled hair blues that often takes over healthy hair and makes it a hot mangled mess. All this hair ingenuity and hair care solutions are the genius of business executive (and marketing guru) Claudio Correia. He began working with these products in South Florida and knew he had the perfect products for women in Florida to have illustrious beautiful tresses. Their new products will definitely straighten your hair and eliminate the Business

frizz. The products will also deliver a natural straight look without the overly processed looks of most straightening treatments. Imagine straight, frizz-free hair that can be temporarily curled? The grooming process is very easy with these miraculous products. Forget having messy unkempt hair, now you can look like you just submerged from a professional hair dresser’s chair. Some hair care chemicals destroy the hair, and if are used on a daily basis (or at the beach with the salt air, sun and pollution) will affect your tresses. It is also important to know that there are some shampoos out there that have too much detergent. And we both know that anything that affects our appearance also affects our health. And, Hair is drastically important for your well being and self-esteem. Olez INCEPTION, just introduced a few months ago, is the first straightening system to incorporate the use of apple stem cell technology. Apple Stem Cells have been widely used in skin care. In fact, the First Lady, Michelle Obama, has touted its benefits. Apple stem cells are rich in hydrogen, phytonutrients, antioxidants, proteins and age resistant cells. These nutrients slow down the deterioration of hair follicles, restoring the hair’s natural properties allowing INCEPTION’s effectiveness to last up to six months. If you don’t have hours to spend in a salon, Olez Advanced fits the bill. Like INCEPTION, it works on all hair types from within the hair follicle, and can be applied in an hour, lasting up to two months. If you are busy, and do not have time to go to a salon, then try Zelo, Boca Cosmetics Group’s home product. It contains similar ingredients to the professional treatments, but is designed with self-application for easy use. It also provides an alternative to salon straightening treatments. Talk to the folks at Boca Cosmetics Group, they know how to guarantee natural beautiful silky hair from the inside out. And they have a diverse group of products for everyone’s needs and lifestyle.

CARLO BARBIERI By Carlo Barbieri

“King” Obama likened to Sun King and “King” Arnold’s “Terminator” As we approach the first official days of President Obama’s second term, let us compare his past record and future possibilities to a couple of other historic strong men: French King Louis XIV, called The Sun King, an absolute ruler of France, and Arnold Schwarzenegger’s fictional “Terminator” character, whose temperament, at least initially, was that of an unthinking, uncaring, mechanical demon. Like the famous Sun King of France, our President Obama – we’ll call him “Moon King” -- enters his second term on a pretense of representing all people when, in fact, just over half the electorate voted for him. Obama often casts his succession to the White House in the form of an ordination followed by a coronation, as if he were somehow almighty. And his efforts to put himself above the people, the Congress and the Constitution show how he has adapted the “Royal We” into the “Royal Me.” Louis XIV de Bourbon placed his biological paternity in doubt. And our Moon King does nothing to rectify his uncertain birthplace and background – circumstances known only to him. Like a monarch, he closely guards the papers that can prove his birthplace and education. This puts him into a category with the “Terminator,” who was neither born nor educated, but simply “manufactured.” We do know that the Moon King was fathered by Barack Obama Sr., a staunch Marxist. The boy was mentored in Marxism by card-carrying communist Frank Marshall Davis from ages 10 to 18. Like our current president, Louis XIV worked to create a centralized state governed from the capital. The Moon King wants all national rule consolidated within the Washington Beltway and make all people draw their life forces from the centralized well. As Louis XIV once said, and Obama may have echoed, “L’etat, c’est moi – I am the state.” Mr. Obama has even said there are days when he would not mind circumventing Congress (and the Constitution) to pass laws of his own choosing. The Sun King created a council of “petty bourgeoisie” with JeanBaptiste Colbert, Hugues de Lionne and Francois-Michel le Tellie. But the Moon King, rather, surrounds himself with people whose image and likeness (meaning political leanings) are like his own. But their level of knowledge and experience need not be great or even

near-great. They can be – and are -amateurs in dealing with public things. Moon King does not have, as the Sun King had, a Colbert who reduced the public deficit and created fiscal reforms, introducing the aides and douanes (both commercial rates), the gabelle (salt tax) and the taille (land tax). The Moon King creates new and unspecific taxes while boasting he will not “hurt” the working class. Colbert respected those who brought progress to France, encouraged the creation of new industries and urged manufacturers and inventors to produce, unlike the Moon King, who discourages production, chides wealth and demonizes success. In the land of the Moon King, workers must toil twice as hard to produce less, because the fruit of their labor is given to those who do not work and produce. In nations ruled by monarchs, the king or queen are there for show and image, not for governance. The Moon King has distanced himself from those who govern by minimizing their role and vowing to run government largely on his own. The Moon King likens himself to a super hero, but less a hero than a villain, who jeopardizes the future of this nation, and the future of the children of America, by increasing government debt and disparaging the productivity of the country. He discourages work because the “unemployed” earn more than those who work. He pretends to forget that, as President Reagan said, “Government is not the solution, government is the problem.” Spending on education has been drained by bureaucracy and abuse that allows incompetent teachers go on strike against their evaluations. Spend a Louvre, and then exchange it for a Versailles. We have 62 million retirees, and, still, after four years of misrule, 22 million people have been unemployed for more than two years. About 49 million people receive food stamps, 800,000 gave their homes up to foreclosure and 1.2 million are in personal bankruptcy. U.S. intelligence is being destroyed, along with American military capacity. It’s clear that our Moon King will be known in the future as the “Terminator.”

MY MISSION IN MOSCOW By Tom Madden Anyone who knows me knows I like to talk, especially about my favorite subject--PR. I’m the guy Bill O’Reilly stops at the factor door. But to tell me to stop spinning and inventing and spreading publicity is like telling the Federal Government to stop spending. So I quickly accepted an invitation to speak at the PRRussia Forum in Moscow a few weeks ago.

in this famous square, and who knows, maybe I’d run into Dr. Zhivago. Oddly, the Sunday before I left, a play by Chekhov, one of my favorite playwrights opened on Broadway, which I couldn’t resist mentioning in my speech. From Red Square I dashed underground across the street to the palatial Ritz-Carlton where I got a sense of the robust commercial life in Moscow as small conferences of business types

Legal Ads First thing I did when I began my speech as an interpreter followed me around the room was to hold up my book “Spin Man,” a memoir that recounts my rise from a harrowing career as a newspaper reporter for The Philadelphia Inquirer to the pinnacle of the PR world as I ran the PR at several networks before starting my own firm, TransMedia Group. So here I am spinning around Russia, a very cold, grid-locked city, but packed with friendly, attractive people eager to give you directions, dining suggestions, and recommendations for sights to see. One of them, of course, was Red Square. How I remember Khrushchev during the height of the cold war standing at the Kremlin watching rows of tanks spin by the reviewing stand. Now I know why they called the war cold, because for a Florida guy, I was freezing, but I had to get some pictures of me Business

I was feeling so good the first night I arrived that I didn’t care how long it took the cab to take me back to my hotel. Actually watching the cab drivers battle Moscow traffic, fighting for every square inch of space, was almost entertaining, if it weren’t costing me so many rubles. But when you’re having a great time, who cares what it costs or how cold it is or whether your interpreter interpreted you right. I returned to Boca with some warm feelings for our country’s erstwhile enemy and now maybe a good friend, a partner and a fabulous place to visit, although I’m annoyed at President Putin for dropping an iron curtain on Americans adopting Russian orphans.

Fort Lauderdale Adds Weapon To Front Line with Addition of Forward David Foley By: Pedro Heizer The Fort Lauderdale Strikers wasted no time to make a big offseason splash this past week when the club signed former Puerto Rico Islander David Foley to a contract. Foley, who started playing professional soccer at the young age of 15 for Hartlepool United in the United Kingdom, comes to Fort Lauderdale after spending three seasons with the Puerto Rico Islanders where he recorded 22 goals and 10 assists. Foley played for Hartlpool for over six years until Adrian Whitbread, who was Puerto Rico’s assistant coach at the time, came to watch him play in the United Kingdom. Needless to say Whitbread was impressed with what he saw and brought over Foley to the NASL in 2010. From the start of his NASL career Foley impressed. In his season debut he scored his first career goal in the 12th minute of the season against the Minnesota Stars on April 21, 2010 at Estadio Juan Ramón Loubriel. That season, Foley would go on to tie for the team lead in goals with nine, while picking up one assist. The next season, there was no “sophomore slump” for Foley as he

showed a highly effective and balanced game when he recorded seven goals and six assists on the season. That season he was also named to the NASL’s Best XI Team that season. When Puerto Rico announced late last year that they would not participate in the 2013 Spring Championship Season, all their current players were released of their contracts in order to be able to sign with different teams. “Daryl Shore contacted as soon as I was released,” said Foley of the free agency process. “He has been fantastic with me; he’s been contacting me since day one. I was impressed with the interest he showed in signing me.” Despite the fifth place finished last season, and the early playoff exit to the hands of the Carolina Railhawks, Foley believes Fort Lauderdale has the right pieces in place to win the 2013 Soccer Bowl, “No doubt we could win the championship,” said Foley. “The talent is there, and we have the right coach for the job.” Foley had nothing but praise for the Strikers organization and its fans, “The team is already very good,” said Foley. “The potential is there, the team has a solid and growing fanbase, there’s nothing not to like about Fort Lauderdale.”

With the addition of Foley, Fort Lauderdale looks to have a very strong front line with players like Andy Herron, Walter Restrepo, and Mark Anderson, who combined for 25 goals last season. “I think this is the best front line in the NASL,” said Foley. “This played a big part in me coming to Fort Lauderdale.” Fellow Englishmen, Mark Anderson, lives five minutes away from Foley in the United Kingdom and the two already have a good relationship. “He [Anderson] is very clever with the ball and very aware of what’s going on around him,” said Foley. “He’s the kind of player that I will thrive playing alongside because he can get that final pass and you can bet it will be a quality pass. Not only that, but he obviously scores his shares of goals.” The savvy veteran will look to bring leadership to Fort Lauderdale and lead by example. Despite not being a big fan of the

new schedule format just yet, Foley understands the importance of winning early, and often, “It’s important to get off to a good start with the way the league is formatted this year, if you win the Spring Championship Season you are already in the Soccer Bowl,” says Foley. “And that in itself is already a major accomplishment heading into the Fall Championship Season.”

Aly Hassan’s Move to Club Aurora Will Prove To Be a Beneficial one By: Pedro Heizer Aly Hassan was one of the rookies, alongside Mark Anderson, that made a huge impact on the Fort Lauderdale Strikers last season. Hassan, 23, finished with six goals in league plays and added three during the U.S. Open Cup, and made 20 appearances for the Strikers with 13 starts. His first goal came in the same game as his first hat trick as Hassan scored three times against the Puerto Rico Islanders in a 3-2 Strikers’ victory at Lockhart Stadium on April 25, 2012. “I am very grateful to be a part of the Fort Lauderdale Strikers,” said Hassan in a recent interview with 90 Minutes Strong. “I’m happy that I got to debut my professional career in my hometown, I feel I grew a lot as a player here [in Fort Lauderdale].” Sports

Hassan grew up in South Florida attending Nova Southeastern University where he played for four seasons. He scored 36 goals in his career at NSU, which ranks him fifth in school history. He received several honors at NSU including being named a unanimous AllRegion selection by the NSCAA and Daktronics, Inc. and All-Sunshine State Conference First-Team honors. In 2007, Hassan was named the Sun-Sentinel’s Broward County Player of the Year. He was the top scorer for Cypress Bay High School, scoring 24 goals and adding eight assists. It was rumored for quite some time after Hassan agreed on a contract extension with Fort Lauderdale that he was on his way out for at least the Spring Championship Season. “Through the efforts of my agent, and the Strikers, I knew there were several teams interested in my services,”

says Hassan of the whole process. “We were actually waiting on an offer from a Russian team when Aurora called.” Nevertheless, the move to Club Aurora will prove beneficial to Hassan, who will now play in the first division of professional soccer in Bolivia. “Here in Bolivia there are a lot of quality players that are very technical,” explains Hassan of the difference between the NASL and the Bolivian Professional Football League. “Some player have experience playing in big tournaments and have also played for their countries.” "We feel this loan will be a good opportunity for Aly to grow as a player,” said Strikers head coach Daryl Shore. “The fact that a South American club is interested in our players speaks volumes about our team and our league." As for Hassan’s plans while on loan at Club Aurora, “I plan on coming here

and growing more as a player, gain more experience, and also score some goals.” Don’t worry about Hassan leaving the Strikers for good though, the loan is only for the 2013 Spring Championship Season, “I will be back in time for the fall season,” affirmed Hassan.
