Boca Raton

Comment Up

At last night's football game, there was discussion on how to pronounce Boca RATON.  Just like it spells...raton--sort of like Baton...Rat-on..or Ra-tone.  Here is a cute video clip.Those from that city go "nuts" when people mispronounce their city's name.

Although it looked like it would be bad weather all evening, we did have this glorious sky right before the game with West Boca Raton.

Last night was Alumni Night and the school had a special treat for us in the school's cafeteria: plenty of Bud's Chicken, cole slaw (which was fabulous), hush puppies and a dessert to die for made by the kids in home economics. All these kids are so polite to all of us Senior folks.

Quote of the Day - Allen West

Some time ago, President B. Hussein Obama delivered his ISIS strategy — he was adamant about not having American combat troops as part of any operation. Obama stated that the solution would be to utilize the Syrian Free Army — a group he once referred to as “fantasy” and just a bunch of “doctors, farmers, and pharmacists.”

But now there are reports that the Syrian opposition force to be recruited by the U.S. military and its coalition partners will be trained to defend territory, rather than to seize it back from the Islamic State. I read that as “whatever ISIS takes, ISIS keeps.” Am I missing something here? But it sure sounds like the Obama administration is giving ISIS a green light. Steadfast and Loyal

Paul Spain running against Lois Frankel

Comment Up

Paul Spain is running against Lois Frankel in District 22. Lois is the incumbent and a Democrat. Lois favors higher taxes on the wealthy; opposes absolute right to own guns. And you can't forget when she was mayor of West Palm Beach and did not honor the vote of the people on her government center. God, it's hard to accept people like that and we have a few with the exact same mindset sitting on the dais right here in Lake Worth.

According to the website GovTrack, Frankel missed 34 of 1,081 roll call votes from January 2013 to July 2014. This amounts to 3.1 percent, which is worse than the median of 2.5 percent among current congressional representatives as of July 2014.

As Lois Frankel rates a D grade by Numbers USA on immigration, I wrote Paul Spain this morning asking him about his stand on immigration, legal and illegal...here is his response:

Lynn,

On Immigration...I am for adhering to the law...Democrats are not! I am for closing our Borders, counting the illegals that are here, then having a legitimate discussion regarding Visa's, Work Permits, and whether any should be eligible for citizenship (after Formal Application).

Then the people of this country should Vote to determine the status of Immigrants. That's what the Constitution says under States and that is what we should follow. We count everything else in this nation and a Political Party should not override that reality.

I would appreciate your Vote

Warmest regards, Paul Spain

Clay Gallery in Lake Worth receives $51,000 grant

On Tuesday night, during public speaking at the city commission meeting, Joyce Brown announced that Clay Glass was just awarded a grant of $51,000 by the Community Foundation of Palm Beach and Martin Counties.  They had been working towards opening their studio at 216 South F Street.

Joyce says, "This will pay for scholarships for ten senior citizen low-income artists.  They will have full studio access, supplies, tools and firings in kilns.  They will also have space in the Clay Glass Metal Stone Gallery.  It is hoped that at the end of one year, they will create and sell enough work to pay their future fees as well as increase their income."

Joyce also has been working on a large grant for a collaboration with the high school students in the Art Department at Lake Worth High School.  If they get that grant, they will teach these students skills, that will allow them to create a living for them and their families through the arts.

New York doctor with Ebola symptoms

Ebola is not just in Dallas.  Now a New York City doctor has been rushed to the hospital because of Ebola symptoms. He was just in Guinea...was he screened when he returned? There are so many crises going on in the world and it seems that we are a depository for a lot of it.

Per The New York Times, more than 400 health care workers in West Africa have been infected with Ebola during the current outbreak and 233 had died as of Oct. 8. The W.H.O. said that the high rates of infection among medical workers could be attributed to shortages or improper use of protective equipment; not enough medical personnel; and long working hours in isolation wards.
