which Lang is helping the club reposition itself toward
capturing a “younger demographic.”
As clubs in general are aging, Agran said, many are
“matching investments to achieve a desired demographic.” Agran explained that at Boca West “a lot of
the units are 1970’s era.” What
Boca West asked Lang to do, Agran
said, “was show how these older
units can be rehabbed, and still be
competitive.”
This resulted in Lang’s successful
renovation of three units, Agran
said, all of which are now left open
to the general real estate community under a multi-list plan.

Boca West “continues to reinvent
itself,” Agran said, “because it wants to bring in the

Continuing its pro-active facilities upgrade, Boca

$100 million spent on facility improvements there over

Boca West’s Chairman of the Board, Leonard Meyers,

Briny
Breezes
awaits
rezoning
By Dale M. King
CITY EDITOR
Things are fairly normal again
in the tiny town of Briny Breezes.
That is, as normal as any community where all 488 of its residents are looking to become millionaires.
On Jan. 10, a majority of the
488 property owners on the barrier island abutting Boynton Beach
voted in favor of selling the “town”
(actually a corporation) to Ocean
Land Investments of Boca Raton
for $510 million.
The developer wants to build an
upscale resort community, replacing the 550 platted mobile home
lots with 700 to 900 condominium
and resort units.
For a long time, all eyes were
on the community as it pondered
multi-million dollar buyout offers.
Last year, when Ocean Land made
its first proposal, the corporation
rejected it. The Boca firm came
back a second time and made it
happen.
Not as many eyes are trained on
the community now. A woman who
answered the phone at the corporation office said a meeting was going on, 25 people were in the office
and “not much has changed.”
But one of those still eyeballing
the town is County Commissioner
Mary McCarty. She represents the
tiny section of seaside land that will
soon be transformed from a mobile
home park to luxury condos.
McCarty has even set up a site
on her web page to “keep you
informed of important developments” in Briny Breezes.

Boca Raton City Council members are used to getting calls from
angry constituents.
But when a resident contacted
Councilman M.J. “Mike” Arts to
complain that he’d been hit with a
$2,700 “parks and recreation impact fee” when he got a permit to
build a 640 square foot addition to
his home, the councilman felt it
was time to take it up with his colleagues.
“This is not to grow his family,
but to give the family more room,”
Arts said.
He was referring to the parks and
recreation impacts fees adopted by
the City Council a year ago. The ordinance creating the fees says they
are designed to provide a program
that maintains quality of life while
accounting for new growth.
Right now, a person can build
an addition of up to 600 square feet
without paying a parks and recreation impact fee. But when the addition hits 601 square feet, the fee
kicks in at about $2,700.
Arts said the caller complained
that the cost of all the permits he
had to get totaled about $8,000
– nearly 10 percent of the $85,000
price of the addition.
“The family has to add 10 percent of the cost – and all they want
is some comfort,” the councilman
said.

Boca ‘still a focal point
for bioscience,’ says mayor
City providing $5,000 grant
to host technology conference
(Special to the News)
Mayor Steven Abrams
By Dale M. King
CITY EDITOR
Boca Raton may not have won the battle to
locate the Scripps Research Institute within its
borders.
But Boca “is still at the focal point of the bioscience industry,” Mayor Steven Abrams told
the Boca Raton News.
Abrams will deliver the opening remarks at
the 6th annual bioscience conference – BioTech 2007 – April 4 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. at
Florida Atlantic University’s Boca Raton campus.
The city has provided the Enterprise Development Corporation of South Florida (EDC), the
sponsoring organization, with a $5,000 grant to
support the conference, which has come back
to FAU for the first time after rotating among
South Florida’s three other universities.
Boca bounces back
Boca’s comeback from the Scripps loss began
the day after the San Diego-based company announced it was going to Jupiter. Boca nailed
down Operation Checkmate, which will bring
an IBM-Scripps partnership to Boca to develop
vaccines for possible pandemics. “We hope to
expand this,” the mayor said.
He said the city has also seen healthy growth
of bioscience startup companies.
The EDC is a public/private partnership specializing in providing business development
services to emerging science and technology
companies. Jane Teague, its executive director, noted that “the city’s support will help us
continue to increase economic development in
the science and technology industries in Boca
Raton, as well as throughout South Florida.”
The theme of BioTech 2007 is New Frontiers
in South Florida Bioscience, Teague said, with
a focus on collaboration and the region’s 60year life science history, and how new clinical
and academic partnerships will change South
Florida’s bioscience landscape.
Dr. Richard A. Houghten, founder and president of Torrey Pines Institute for Molecular
Studies, will serve as keynote speaker at 9:30
a.m., following Abrams’ opening remarks.
Other conference highlights include sessions
on new collaborations in bioinformatics and
biomedical science, funding for life science
companies, and other business and regulatory
issues, plus poster presentations and sponsor
exhibits.
For information, call Christine Cannon at
561-620-8494, extension x10.
BDB on board
In a related matter, the Business Development Board of Palm Beach County held a Bioscience Stakeholder’s Meeting Thursday night
in West Palm Beach. The purpose was to update
members of the life science industry, government, education and the community about
new developments in Palm Beach County’s
biotech cluster.
Houghton attended, and took part in a panel
discussion of “Technology Transfer – Product
to Payoff: Technology Transfer’s Role in Commercialization.”
The workshop called “Community Transformation – Palm Beach County’s Response
to Biotech” had a healthy local representation.
It included Steve Sloate, senior vice president
and chief strategy office from Boca Raton Community Hospital and Ramaswamy Narayanan,
associate dean for Research & Industrial Relations at Florida Atlantic University. Clint Chalk,
a biotechnology student at Palm Beach Community College and intern at Ocean Ridge BioSciences, also took part, as did Russell Allen,
president of BioFlorida.

West Boca High students
break digital divide

STAFF WRITER
Boca students become
presidential historians
By Nicol Jenkins
STAFF WRITER
History recently came alive for
some Boca students.
Students from Spanish River
High School and Omni Middle
School in Boca Raton recently became historians. The local pupils
listened to a history lesson from
Robert Watson, Associate Professor of Political Science at Florida
Atlantic University in Boca Raton.
The Boca professor, who’s a historian, addressed the contributions
and leadership styles of American
presidents. His research includes
U.S. presidents, first ladies, and
the White House.
“He spoke about the presidency
and listed his top three presidents,
Lincoln, Washington and Truman. He is one of three dozen historians who serve on a committee
that ranks presidents,” said Tom
Di Figlio, Social Studies Department Chairman at Spanish River
High School.
About 700 students were in attendance for the speech, according to Di Figlio.
“They got to ask questions
about current politics,” said Di
Figlio. “The kids need to learn
about the past in order to understand the scope and sequence of
current day affairs.”
Spanish River High School and
Omni Middle School are the only
Gilder Lehrman history schools in
Florida. Gilder Lehrman history
schools are college-preparatory
schools centered on American history. At the core of these schools
is a four-year sequence of courses
in American history. In many of
these schools, the entire student
body participates in the Gilder
Lehrman program. In other
schools, a select portion of the
student body participates.
“The Gilder Lehrman Institute
of American History promotes the
study and love of American history,” said Eric Sharfstein, Communications Manager for the Gilder
Lehrman Institute of American
History. “Our goal is to have students not just cover history, but
discover history.”
Sharfstein said guest speakers
are part of the program called the
Junior Historians’ Forum. These
forums were created in 2004 for
Gilder Lehrman schools. Students
and teachers have the opportunity to analyze documents with
leading scholars and discuss the
historian’s craft in an informal
setting. Lincoln’s Emancipation
Proclamation: The End of Slavery in America by Allen C. Guelzo
of Gettysburg College was held
at Spanish River High School in
January.
“The forum is a chance for
students and teachers to listen
to and speak with a scholar, ask
questions, and analyze historical documents. Studying with a
scholar and looking at primary
source materials are the best way
to become a part of a dialogue on
a particular historical subject,”
Sharfstein said. “This is a great
way for students to learn that

No computer means social suicide in the teen world- where most
communicate via text messages and social networking sites.
But nowadays teachers also rely heavily on the Internet to interact
with students.
Those without in Palm Beach County are lumped into the digital
divide, meaning not having access to the Internet.
But West Boca Raton High School has decided to break the divide
between the techie “haves” and “have nots.” Through a computer
refurbish program through the district, students in the Information
Technology Academy add software to older computers and then donate
them to local non-profit organizations.
About 50 students in Craig Sommer’s PC Support and Networking
classes are currently “in the process” of refurbishing district computers
to donate to area non-profits.
“We get the computers from the district and put software into them
and then once we’re finished we will pass them on to non-profits, who
will then pass them on to households and people in the community,”
Sommer said.
Most computers are four to five years old, Sommer said, and it takes
two to three hours for students to refurbish those computers. The process, Sommer said includes, “First they have to make sure the system
works, then load software, physically clean the computer, and finally
test the computer and make sure the person is getting a good machine.”
Besides learning technical skills, Sommer believes the students also
gain a sense of supporting the community.
“I thought it was a great idea because of the double benefit. Students

Tuesday’s meeting raising the
square footage limit before the
fee kicks in. City Manager Leif
Ahnell said the city staff would
draft an amendment and present
it to the council during its goalsetting sessions in late April.
In fact, council members
showed an interest in possibly
revising the document during the
two-day workshop.
Arts’ experience apparently
jogged other council members’
memories. For one thing, Deputy
Mayor Susan Whelchel recalled
that it was she who raised the
square footage on the fee list from
400 to the 600 that eventually was
approved. She said the figure was
“pulled from a hat. Now, as we
are finding out, it isn’t helping.”
“We should do something to
help people, especially young
people,” said Councilman Bill
Hager.
The council noted that an addition to a home does not always
mean more children.

of Briny Breezes and the surrounding municipalities – and am very
committed to addressing the community’s concerns and issues as this
project progresses,” she said.
According to McCarty, the developer’s plans for a resort community
are in the preliminary planning stages and are subject to change due
to an extremely complicated process.
“Some of the government agencies that will be involved in the approval process include the State Department of Environmental Protection, the State Department of Community Affairs, the city of Boynton
Beach and the South Florida Water Management District.”
The closing on the land is scheduled for March of 2009. That’s when
residents will get their money – and will have to relocate.
Between now and then, elected officials will be making changes to
the comprehensive plan and zoning regulations, and acting on an
application to approve the resort.

www.bocanews.com • Boca Raton/Delray Beach News - Friday-Saturday, March 30-31, 2007 Boca students exchange
culture with Israel students
By Nicol Jenkins
STAFF WRITER
Jessica Friedman and Tal Fuchs have
much in common -- the duo shares similar
roots in Israel.
However, the new friends are a world
apart. Friedman lives in Boca Raton and
attends Weinbaum Yeshiva High School;
Fuchs lives in Kiryat Bialik, Israel.
But through the Jewish Roots program
sponsored by the Florida Jewish Federation,
both girls can visit one another. Currently,
Tal is staying with Friedman in Boca.
And she’s not alone.
Through the program, many local Jewish teens from Weinbaum Yeshiva High
School, Donna Klein Jewish Academy,
Spanish River High, and Olympic Heights
High visit and host students from Kiryat
Bialik, Israel. Also over the year, Boca students go to Israel and the Kiryat Bialik students come to Boca, in order to experience
each other’s different lifestyles, according to
Alexa Bryn, a student at Weinbaum Yeshiva
High School (WYHS).
“WYHS decided to participate in the program because the program takes students
out of their every day lives and comfort zone
and lets them experience the way other
teens their age live and understand how
they think,” said Bryn, also head of public
relations at the school. “While the cultural
differences between the Israeli and Ameri-
can teens are certainly remarkable, it may
be even more remarkable that the teenagers
in Boca Raton from three different schools
live and think differently. However, what's
so nice about the Jewish Roots program is
that it focuses on the similarities including Jewish Identity and feelings for Israel
that bind all of the teenagers and their lifestyles.”
But how do the teens connect?

developer for return of deposit

Former State Rep. Irv Slosberg, who represented a
largely West Boca district for the past six years, wants to
move east.
Nearly two years ago, he said, he paid Opus South Developments LLC, developer of the Meridian condo complex at State Road A1A and East Palmetto Park Road,
$245,000 as a deposit on a $2.5 million unit overlooking
the Atlantic Ocean and South Beach Park.
Now, Slosberg says he wants his deposit back, claiming
the unit he bought is 261 square feet smaller than what
was quoted to him on plans.
“I have three sets of plans,” Slosberg told the Boca Raton News. And he said the square footages are different.
The Meridian has not yet been completed.

A few months ago, Slosberg said he wanted to go into
the unfinished unit to measure for blinds and tile. He
said the builders told him he couldn’t go in, but he could
use the architectural plans in the firm’s office.
Slosberg said that when he checked out the unit, it

government agencies. Revenues
have tripled in the past four years
and this year's earnings of $1.18
have doubled in the same time
frame. Trading at 17 times earnings, MCTC has $378 million in
revenues, $76 million in debt and
15 million shares out.
Color Kinetics Inc. (CLRK$17.64) designs, makes and sells
lighting systems that use lightemitting diodes. Last year's revenues of $52 million produced
a profit of 24 cents a share (18.5
million shares out) with zero debt
and a huge cash position. The
shares trade at 74 times earnings
and those earnings might double
this year to 48 cents a share.
Online Resources Corp. (ORCC$10.22) provides outsourced Internet financial technology to 850
financial clients. The clients are
able to access and view accounts
online and perform Web-based,
self-service functions. ORCC generated $60 million in 2006 revenues, earned 24 cents a share, has
26 million shares out $85 million
in debt, plenty of cash and trades
at 42 times earnings.

learn a lot in the content area and
they get to give back to the community,” Sommer said. “And
they love it. They love the hands
on part and look forward to helping out.”
Sommer said once the computers are refurbished students will
deliver them to local non-profits.
In addition to the digital divide
program, students are taking the
test for certification in A+ and
Microsoft. Separate from the digital divide program, students have
also donated a refurbished computer to a fellow classmate and
repaired teacher’s computers.
Sommer said he thinks the
programs have proven successful, as such shown in student
Jack Giveon, who will receive the
award for top PC Support for the
graduating class and will continue studying computer science at
the University of Central Florida
in Orlando.
“These programs are helping
out anyone interested in the fields
of engineering, computer science,
or business,” Sommer said.

Divorce Florida Style
Compromise could hurt son's future
"Meet The Robinsons"
'Lookout' and 'Meet the Robinsons'
outstanding new films to see
By Skip Sheffield
STAFF WRITER
It’s a good movie weekend, with two outstanding
features; one for adults and the other for children
and adults.
“The Lookout” is an R-rated psychological
thriller that starts with terrible bang and never
loosens its grip on the viewer until its finale 98
minutes later.
Writer Scott Frank (“Out of Sight”) makes his
directorial debut, showing a facility for action and
drama that matches his writing skill.
Chris Pratt (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) is a cocky
high school hockey star out for a thrill ride in the
American heartland with his girlfriend and another couple.
Pratt’s idea of kicks is switching off the headlights at high speed so everyone can enjoy the dazzling display of stars. Pratt laughs as the girls start
screaming and beg him to turn the lights back on.
As the car sails over a hill, Pratt switches on the
lights and too late realizes a huge combine blocks
the road. The scene ends in a sickening crash.
The story shifts forward four years. Chris Pratt
is now college age, but he attends rehab instead of
school. Brain injury has led to permanent shortterm memory loss. In order to get through each
day, Pratt has to write a list of things to do, starting
with getting out of bed.
Pratt’s roommate is a fellow physically-challenged person. Lewis (Jeff Daniels) is blind, but his
intellect and sense of humor are intact.
Chris is Lewis’ seeing-eye guide and Lewis is
charged with keeping Chris on track and out of
trouble. Chris has secured a nighttime job as a
janitor at a small bank, and he dreams of one day
becoming a teller.
Then one day Gary Spargo (British actor Matthew Goode) slouches into Pratt’s life. Gary feeds
Chris’ shattered ego and provides him with a willing woman, the aptly-named Luvlee Lemons (Isla
Fisher) to give Chris his first affection since the accident.
Gary has a favor to ask, hence the film’s title.
“Lookout” moves from psychological exploration and black comedy to edge-of-seat thriller as
Chris realizes, again too late, what a mess lies just
ahead. Gordon-Levitt is fine as broken, tormented
Chris, but it is Jeff Daniels who steals the show
as Lewis, as funny, resourceful and brave a blind
character as has ever been created.
Three and a half stars
For the whole family we have “Meet The Robinsons,” a lively computer-animated 3-D fable about
persistence and forgiveness, based on the inspirational book “A Day with Wilbur Robinson,” by William Joyce. I wish I could have read that book as a
kid, but it didn’t come out until 1993, when I had
three kids of my own.
The main character is not Wilbur but a 12-yearold orphan kid named Lewis, a boy with a genius
IQ who is always inventing Rube Goldberg contraptions that tend to blow up.
Lewis has been through 124 adoption interviews
without finding a family. He has become obsessed
with finding the mother who abandoned him,
and to this end he invents a “Memory Scanner’ he
thinks will lead to her identity.
Lewis enters his invention in a science fair, and
an eccentric boy named Wilbur shows up like a secret agent, warning him to be on the lookout for
“The Bowler Hat Guy.”
When the Bowler Hat Guy sabotages and steals
the Memory Scanner, an adventure begins that will
take Lewis and Wilbur into a fantastic future and
back to the past again.
Walt Disney would have approved.
Three and a half stars
Short Takes: “Reign Over Me” is a surprisingly worthy effort by comedian Adam Sandler as a
New York dentist shattered by 9/11 and Don Cheadle as the college buddy who tries to lift him from
catatonic depression.
“Blades of Glory” is more funny business from
Will Ferrell as a champion figure skater and John
Heder as his male partner.
“Mummies: Secrets of the Pharaohs “ opens today in IMAX theaters. A review appears next week.
And finally the motivational film “Peaceful Warrior” goes into wide release today after a limited
run last year.
Sarah Smith returns to star
in Boca Ballet’s 'Romeo and Juliet'
By Skip Sheffield
STAFF WRITER
Sarah Smith returns to where it
all started to star in Boca Ballet’s
“Romeo and Juliet” at 7 p.m. tonight, 8 p.m. Saturday and 2 p.m.
Sunday at Florida Atlantic University Theatre.
A graduate of Harid Conservatory and Spanish River High School,
Smith is now a principal ballerina
with American Ballet Theatre of
New York City. Her co-stars are fellow ABT dancers Roman Zhurbin
as Romeo and Matthew Murphy
as the fiery Mercutio.
All three principals have danced
“Romeo and Juliet” with ABT, but
Boca Raton will be their debut as
principals.
“When I think of Juliet, I always
see Heather Sanders, and how
beautiful she was,” said Smith
Tuesday after rehearsal warm-up.
“I first saw her at Boca Ballet in
1996, and again in 2001. I can’t
believe I’m dancing Juliet now.”
Smith is one of the shining success stories of Boca Ballet. She first
appeared at age 7 as an extra in
“The Nutcracker,” and at age 11
began classical ballet training in
earnest with Boca Ballet husbandand-wife cofounders Dan Guin
and Jane Tyree.
“I didn’t even like ballet at
first,” Smith admits. “But I
learned to love it, thanks to Jane
and Dan, and now it’s my life.”
Smith went directly from Harid
Conservatory to Indiana Ballet at
Indiana University, where Julie
Kent became her mentor.
“Julie used to visit Boca Ballet twice a year as a guest artist,”
Smith explains. “She encouraged
me to audition for Indiana Ballet,
then after a year and a half she felt
I was ready to try out for American
Ballet Theatre.”
Kent was right, and Smith was
accepted as part of ABT’s corps de
ballet, and she made her debut
Feb. 6, 2004.
Russian-born, New Yorktrained Roman Zhurbin and New
York City native Matthew Murphy
started at ABT’s ballet school, and
they welcome the opportunity to
spread their wings.
“We’ve danced `Romeo and
Juliet,’ but not as principals,”
explains Murphy. “I love the role
of Mercutio. I get to die onstage,
which is always fun.”
Zhurbin’s last-minute casting
as Romeo has the makings of a
show biz fable. Dan Guin had
originally cast rising ABT star
Marcelo Gomes as Romeo, but
just three weeks before rehearsals
were to begin, he injured his knee
and Guin tapped Zhurbin to step
in.
“I’m still stepping,” said
Zhurbin with a broad smile, glistening with sweat from rehearsal.
“It’s a thrill and a little scary to
dance Romeo for the first time,
but I have a great partner.”
Dan Guin is like a proud papa,
and indeed he plays the nondancing role of Juliet’s father,
Lord Capulet.
“I’m the prejudiced, bigoted father who causes all the trouble,”
he admits with a grin. “When
we first did `Romeo and Juliet’ I
danced Romeo, but by the second
time in 2001, I moved to the nondancing role of Lord Capulet. The
only thing I don’t like is the beard
I’ve had to grow. It’s itchy, and it’s
not my wife’s favorite thing.”
Tickets for “Romeo and Juliet”
are $25 children 12 and under
and $35 adults. Call 995-0709 or
visit www.bocaballet.org.
Q: My husband and I have
one child. We’re from Evanston,
Illinois, a suburb just north of
Chicago. We moved here three
years ago. I hate it, and want to
go back to Chicago with my son,
who is in third grade.
Our son goes to private school,
which we can hardly afford while
living together. Living apart, he
would go to public school. From
what I can see the public schools
in Evanston, where my parents
and sisters live, are better. My dad
says I can work for him in his car
dealership.
My attorney tells me that my
reasons to want to move, with our
son to Evanston, may not satisfy
the judge. She and I have been
talking about a compromise with
my husband and his attorney.
Our case has been going on for
some time and this is the last issue we have not settled. The cost
has been enormous. My husband
cries over losing his son. They are
very close. My husband coaches
my son’s soccer team and is an
assistant coach on his Boca Jets
football team.
He and his lawyer suggest that
our son live with me, in grade
school and middle school; go to
sports summer camps in Boca
and come to live with him when
he gets to high school. In some
ways that seems fair, at least for
us parents, but I am not sure how
it will affect our son. My lawyer is
not sure whether the judge would
accept such proposal. What do
you think?
A: As to the plan’s psychological impact on your son, you
would have to see a psychologist
or a fortuneteller. Whether or not
the move would be in the best interest of your son about five years
from now is speculative.
He could have made some
longtime friends in grade school
and middle school that he does
not want to part with. There
could be special programs he is
involved in which overlap the two
schools. He may be very bonded
with his grandparents and cousins. Moving, just before he goes
into high school might turn out
to be traumatic. You just do not
know. That is the legal problem
as well.
The first rule of deciding child
custody matters for a judge is to
consider the best interests of the
child. When an event such as the
change you are talking about is
to happen far in the future there
is no way for a judge to make a
finding as to whether or not the
change will be in the child’s best
interest, at that time.
If you brought an agreement to
the judge with the clause you describe, a thoughtful judge would
probably reject it, because it is
speculative concerning the child’s
best interest. There are appel-
Michael
Gora
late decisions, which would give
him the discretion to do so, and
Florida public policy may make
it mandatory that the clause be
rejected.
If the clause slips by the judge,
because you and your husband
agreed to it, and no one objects,
you might be buying a large
mess, both legally and psychologically five years from now. Your
son, fifteen or sixteen years old,
may wake up one morning and
say he’s not going to move, and
give up his buddies and the high
school he always wanted to go to.
Your idea on how to compromise
with your husband and end the
divorce case, might be a costly
mistake, and harmful to your son
in the end.

Board of Legal Specialization of the Florida
Bar as a specialist in family and matrimonial law and practices law in Boca Raton.

accomplishments and donors who
make what we do possible, and
raise money for scholarships. This
year’s auction accomplished all of
these goals.”
The 2007 auction generated
an increase in revenues and attendance, he said. Those attending were entertained by ESPN’s
college football analyst Lee Corso,
who has been involved in college
football for more than 50 years.
Corso chronicled his career and
discussed FAU’s true potential for
top-quality football. Corso said he
witnessed FAU Head Coach Howard
Schnellenberger’s mastery at building football programs both at the
University of Miami, the University
of Louisville and now at FAU.
FAU also recognized seven individuals who are the newest mem-
bers of the FAU Director’s Club.
Members Dan Hodgeman, Rich
Iamunno, Bill and Cecelia James,
Lalita and Walter Janke, and Matt
Shafer, were presented with a blue
blazer which signifies their support
of FAU Athletics and is awarded
to members who donate a yearly
scholarship.
Currently, there are 22 members
of the Director’s Club.

Horoscope
HAPPY BIRTHDAY
Friday, March 30, 2007:
You have more get-up-and-go
this year than in the past. You
are able to get more done. Focus, and you'll hit your share
of a home runs. You achieve a
lot, and quite quickly. You have
much energy and many ideas,
though you often experience
a backfire when working with
others. Remain optimistic and
attempt to see the unusual solution that works for the majority.
If you are single, you could meet
some bohemian and interesting
people. You might opt to have a
relationship with one of them.
If you are attached, be willing
to backtrack and say when you
were wrong. Implementing new
ideas could be difficult. VIRGO
understands how to pitch in.
The Stars Show the Kind of Day
You'll Have: 5-Dynamic; 4-Positive; 3-Average; 2-So-so; 1-Difficult
ARIES
March 21-April 19
HHHH Focus on the process
and getting the job done. Others might give you some flak, as
they don't have your vision or
drive. Work with others, as long
as you can achieve your longterm goals. Know when to fly
solo! Tonight: Slow down.
TAURUS
April 20-May 20
HHHHH Creativity surges
for those who think about what
they do. Listen to what is being
shared by a child or loved one.
You might need to pull back and
think. Time alone allows great
ideas to bubble forth. Tonight:
Loosen up your play ethic.
GEMINI
May 21-June 20
HHH Come from a solid point
of view. You are interested in
some basics. Listen to others, but
aim for what you want. Meetings
and people join together to help
you get more of what you desire.
Tonight: Happy at home.
CANCER
June 21-July 22
HHHH Speak your mind. Be
willing to walk your talk. Take
charge and handle a personal
matter in a more forthright
manner. Others always depend
upon you to assume a leadership
position. Tonight: Hang out with
a co-worker.
LEO
July 23-Aug. 22
HHHH Read between the lines.
Understand what is happening
with someone close. You might
wind up paying far more than
you anticipated. Know when to
call a halt to the process. Understanding grows. Tonight: Happy
as a cat.
VIRGO
Aug. 23-Sept. 22
HHHHH Feel empowered and
respond to the Moon vibrations
calling you. Expect to be the
lead actor. What you can achieve
might be quite stunning. Work
with a partner as closely as possible. Tonight: On top of your
game.
LIBRA
Sept. 23-Oct. 22
HH Take your time making
a decision. You will be able to
make a difference in a little way.
Still, don't push someone too
hard. You might not like all the
flak that could erupt. Your ability
to move a project forward might
be limited. Tonight: Know when
to head for the hills.
SCORPIO
Oct. 23-Nov. 21
HHHH Though you certainly
know where you want to go, you
might have to work hard to get
there. You might feel as if you
are running in place. Don't give
up, as suddenly you could be
sprinting across the path. Tonight: Where the gang is.
SAGITTARIUS
Nov. 22-Dec. 21
HHHH Your creativity surges,
giving you an additional edge.
You are high energy and ready to
assume responsibility. You might
wonder why others are getting
stumped when a touch of ingenuity could loosen up a problem.
Tonight: A must appearance.
CAPRICORN
Dec. 22-Jan. 19
HHHH Events and your conscience force you to look past the
obvious. Listen to insight that
you gain, and use that information. Empathy and understanding emanate from a situation.
You might want to rethink a
situation. Tonight: Off to the
movies.
AQUARIUS
Jan. 20-Feb. 18
HHHH A partner could have
a profound impact, if you allow it. You might not always see
the complete picture, but the
same could be said of a partner. Loosen up and make fewer
judgments. Listen to others. You
could be amazed by what you
hear! Tonight: Go with another's
suggestion.
PISCES
Feb. 19-March 20
HHH Listen to your sixth sense
when dealing with someone you
care about. Others have strong
opinions, which you might or
might not want to go along with.
Still, you might not realize that
you aren't running the show -others are. Tonight: Say "yes."

Walters, McMillin pick Florida to win NCAA Tournament Monday
“Florida, just because of their size, their experience.
They’ve got a very solid bench with Chris Richards
and Walter Hodge. They’ve got four or five guys over
there who don’t play who are really good. They’re very
talented, they’ve got the best starting five."
By Mario Sarmento
SPORTS EDITOR
They may have been hot on the recruiting trail since their respective seasons ended, but Florida Atlantic University basketball coach Rex Walters
and Lynn head coach Scott McMillin
still found time to keep tabs on this
year’s NCAA Tournament.
Both coaches will be in Atlanta
attending the NCAA Final Four this
weekend, where they will also take
part in a conference for all basketball coaches at every college level.
This week, Walters and McMillin weighed in with their picks as to
who will be cutting down the nets
Monday as the national champion.
“Florida, just because of their
size, their experience,” Walters said.

Walters continues on recruiting trail
By Mario Sarmento
SPORTS EDITOR
Florida Atlantic University
coach Rex Walters has used a lot
of frequent flyer miles over the
course of the last month since
his team was eliminated in the
Sun Belt Conference Tournament. The Owls finished the first
season under Walters and in the
Sun Belt 16-15 (10-8 Sun Belt).
Walters said he has visited recruits in four states in four days,
and in April he’ll do the same
thing when he goes to Las Vegas,
Texas, Pittsburgh and Arkansas.
The Owls lost leading scorer
DeAndre Rice and Brent Crews
to graduation, leaving two huge
holes in the lineup.
Rice was a second team AllSun Belt selection who averaged
20.8 points per game and shot
50.2 percent from the floor.
“You talk about DeAndre Rice,
you’re talking about losing a guy
who could give you 39, 40 on any
given night," Walters said. "We
won’t have that next year, so we’ve
got to get better defensively.”
Crews was third in the conference with 4.67 assists per game,
ninth in steals at 1.47 per game
and he was fourth in assist-toturnover ratio.
“A guy who every single day
brought it, brought it to practice
hard, was the heart and soul of
our team,” Walters said. “We’ll
miss his leadership.”
Those departures have made
the players Walters has already
signed all the more important to
FAU’s future.
Jamal Owens is a 6-foot-6
small forward from Carol City
who is one of the top prospects
in the state. Owens played in the
Super Showcase in Orlando and
was the Slam Dunk Champion.
“Guys going to Florida, going to
UMASS, going to Wake Forest, one
of our kids is in that game,” Walters
said. “He’s probably one of the top
25 players in the state. Very athletic,
we’re excited about him.”
Walters also landed Brett
Royster, one of the top 20 players in Texas.
“Great shot-blocker, very good
athlete,” Walters said. “He’s going
to give us a true defensive presence,
even though he’s only 6-7, 6-8.”
Royster's wingspan helped him
to average eight blocks per game
at Martin High in Fort Worth.
The Owls also signed Carderro
Nwoji, a player who Walters said
would be FAU’s first true point
guard in some time.
“We’ll miss Dre playing the point
cause he could really score it, but
Nwoji is really good defensively,”
Walters said. “For a long time, he
(Nwoji) played with the No. 1 junior college in America and he’ll
give us great leadership.”
Transfer Sammy Hernandez
will also be counted on for help.
Hernandez was the sixth man
on last year's George Mason
team that made it to the Final Four, and at 6-foot-5, 230
pounds, he will give the Owls
another inside presence.
The Owls will have to wait until Spring 2008 to see Hernandez
on the floor due to transfer rules.
Walters will also have some
help from a 2006 signee who
didn’t get a chance to play
with the team last year, Saint
Andrew’s School graduate and
Boca Raton News 2006 Player
of the Year, Xavier Perkins.
Perkins was given a medical
redshirt this year after he was diagnosed with heart arrythmia. He
has been cleared to play and will
be on the FAU team next year.
“He’s going to be a good
player for us,” Walters said.
“Although he didn’t practice for
over half the year, he’s a smart
player. He really picks things up.
I think he’s got a chance to really help us. He can play a couple
of different positions for us, he
can play the 3, he can play the
4. He’s got to shoot it better, but
he can really drive it. And I think
he can be a good defender if he
really puts his mind to it.”
In their first season in the Sun
Belt Conference, the Owls finished
third in the East Division. Walters
thinks the switch from the Atlantic Sun will have a positive effect
on his team in the future.
“It was a big, big step up,” he
said. “When I think about last year’s
team, beating South Alabama at
home. When you go from the 28th
RPI to 21st or 20th, that’s a big step
up. There was great parity.”
South Alabama finished first in
the East and received an NIT invitation, while North Texas won the
conference tournament and earned
an automatic bid to this year’s
NCAAs. The Mean Greene played
the second-seeded Memphis Tigers
tough before falling 73-58 in the
first round of the tournament.
North Texas’ showing, combined with the recent success of
mid-majors, leads Walters to believe his Owls can compete with
any team in the country. To do
that, Walters wants to continue to
schedule top teams from around
the country, like he did when
the Owls played regional finalist
North Carolina last season.
“I was going to try to schedule

North Carolinas, the Kentuckys,

the Indianas (for this season),”
Walters said. “I want our guys to
know what it takes to play at our
highest level and get a taste of
that so you can evaluate yourself
against the best and see what areas you need to improve in.”
Walters was disappointed he
didn’t have two starters in the 105-
52 loss to North Carolina on Dec. 19.
Paul Graham III and Carlos Monroe were injured, and Walters thinks
it was an opportunity missed to see
how his team truly stacked up.
“Could we have beaten them?
Probably not,” he said. “The
score still would have been a little lopsided, but it would’ve been
good for those guys to experience
it and get a true taste.”
Walters also wants to schedule
an exempt tournament to get his
team to play three games in three
days, because “that’s what we
have to do in the Sun Belt.”
His goal is to continue to improve the Owls’ talent level and
build on their current success, as
FAU has now recorded back-toback winning seasons for the first
time since moving to the Division
I level and just the second time in
school history.
Boca Resort
The mental art of scoring in golf
By Mike Trinley
SPECIAL TO THE NEWS
Golf is truly a unique game. There are no plays to
run. No offense or defense. No time outs. Even worse,
there is no real recovery from a bad play. Each golfer
has to live with the mistakes, which makes how well
you deal with them the key to playing well and scoring well.
A most important lesson from which every golfer
can benefit is to always play in the present and avoid
getting too far ahead of oneself. Most golfers make
this mistake when it comes to keeping score.
Truth be told, monitoring your score and calculating what you’re on track to score is a recipe for
disaster. This takes you out of the present and into the
future. Golf requires complete concentration on the
shot at hand. Any future thinking would limit your
ability to fully perform in the present.
The next time you play golf try this. Before you
tee off tell your group that you don’t want to know
where you stand during the round. It may be tempting but don’t let their comments sway you. The goal
is to improve. Try your best not to keep a running
score in your head either. At the end of each hole just
announce your total score. Try not to be tempted to
look at the scorecard during the round. If you are,
take a deep breath, slow down your movements and
shift your thoughts to the shot at hand.
By not focusing so much on your score, you’ll find
it a lot easier to take your mind off future thoughts
and keep them in the present. Don’t be surprised
to learn that your total is lower than you may have
thought.
Keep track by GPS
While concentration is critical to your golf game,
technology is transforming the way we play. One of
NCAA picks
from Page 11
“Horford is a main post-up guy,
and Oregon was committed to keeping everything in front, and not allowing easy touches for Horford.”
That opened up the floor for
guards Taurean Green and Lee
Humphrey, and they both delivered
with big games against the Ducks.
Humphrey made seven threepointers and scored 23 points, and
the biggest innovations in the world of golf is GPS
(Global Positioning System) technology.
At the Boca Resort & Club, we have a fleet of GPS
UpLink Smart Cart golf carts. The technology, although not new, is spoiling golfers all over the world.
Trust me, once you become accustomed to GPS in
your game, you will no longer want to play the old
fashioned way.
The player at every point on the golf course knows
exactly how far he or she is to the pin and can see
what, if any, trouble lies ahead. In essence, the GPS
system is a virtual yardage book for the golfer. They
just look on the screen and the layout of the hole is
right in front of them. They receive exact yardages
for everything, from how far it is to carry the fairway
bunker to how far the carts of the group in front are
so they know if it is safe to hit the ball.
For the golf course operator, the benefits of GPS are
tremendous. From advertising your club’s amenities
to following the pace of play, GPS provides an incredible amount of communication between golfers and
the clubhouse.
For example, here at the Boca Raton Resort & Club,
we use the GPS to inform our golfing guests about our
daily clinics and the Dave Pelz Scoring Game School.
We can utilize the GPS to monitor which groups
might be playing slow or in the case of inclement
weather, we can send out a blanket message to all
golfers to seek shelter or return to the clubhouse.
With so many benefits, it is no surprise that more
and more resort courses now feature this groundbreaking GPS technology.
Now, if only this technology could fix a martini on
the 19th hole…
Mike Trinley is the golf professional at the Boca Raton Resort & Club.
Green added 21 points.
For Florida to repeat as champions Monday night, McMillin
and Walters agree that Green and
Humphrey will have to continue to
hit the outside shot.
Walters said if Ohio State gets to
the final, the Buckeyes will be extremely dangerous because, as he
put it, “Conley and Oden, all they
know is winning.”
But he still gives Florida the edge
because of experience.
“They (Buckeyes) don’t know what
the distractions are like,” he said.
“When I played in the Final Four
(with Kansas in 1993), I had no
idea how many distractions there
are out there. There’s television
cameras everywhere you go, there’s
fans everywhere you go. Everyplace
you walk, you talk, you eat, there’s
a camera there. And it’s a distraction. Florida’s been through that,
they’ve been going through it all
year. And they experienced it last
year, got the championship. So,
they know what to expect.”
