Summer is coming, but the Boca Raton Tribune staff will be keeping busy

Memorial Day – the traditional gateway into summer – is coming up in just a couple of weeks.

Summer is usually the time when people kick back a little and think about the beach, vacations, sitting under a palm tree sipping a pina colada or just relaxing on a lounge chair with a good book.

We at the Boca Raton Tribune may take a little time off to recharge our batteries, but the momentum is going strong – and we don’t want to slow down.

This week’s paper marks the appearance of our new Real Estate section – one that has been in the thought stage for a long time, but it is now in print.  And it will be printed every other week, alternating with the B-section which features lifestyle, society and entertainment stories.

We’re also entering the hurricane season – and today’s paper features the first in a series of hurricane preparation tips.

When you think about it, hurricane season is even closer than summer.  The season of potential storms is coming up June 1 – barely giving us time to enjoy the Memorial Day weekend.

Naturally, we at the Boca Raton Tribune are concerned about the safety of everyone in East and West Boca and the surrounding communities. We will be offering special hurricane news and safety tips as we march into and through the season.  Everyone knows the usual precautions – have emergency supplies, flashlights and lanterns, food and water and a safe place to weather the storm.  Don’t forget to check the generator. And notify friends and family if you have to evacuate.

We have been very lucky the past five years.  The Boca Raton area hasn’t been hit since 2005 when Wilma gave us a slam from the west.

But odd weather has been plaguing the country lately. Tornadoes in the states just north of Florida.  A terrible winter in the Northeast.  The earthquake and tsunami that afflicted Japan is not weather-related, but the impact is still being felt.

So, we advise you to watch for helping hurricane hints. Every little bit of information is a good thing.

Anniversary commendations

I want to thank everyone for their kind words about the first anniversary edition of the Boca Raton Tribune.

Many commented us about the beautiful cover featuring the front pages of many past editions.  That is the work of our Art Director Maheli Jardim.

We compiled a lot of photos from the past year showing our staff at various events around the city as well as pictures of many who visited us here in the office.  We intend to be out there again this year — and everyone is welcome to drop by the building and say hello.

And also, special thanks to all the people who took out ads congratulating us on the occasion of our first anniversary: Henrietta, Countess de Hoernle, Flossy Keesely, Yaacov and Sue Heller, Ben and Rosemary Krieger and the gang from Gallery 22.  You have been very kind.

The second year of publication should be just as interesting. We are already coming up with ideas for new sections, new stories and special advertising sections.  Keep an eye on the paper and the website so you won’t miss a thing.

We often receive military orders, are used to shield the phone bombs, as a good cell phone jammer factory, we need to ensure quality.
I hate those people who use the phone loudly. They are in public places that care about other people's feelings, I really should use cellphone jammer to put their Zuidou sealed.
We do not know being followed in many cases, in order to prevent such incidents, GPS blocker have used as a guard against such incidents occur.
Canadians pay attention to life, we often speak loudly in order to call on the road who worry, do not know the mobile phone blocker are not suitable for us.
What mobile phone jammer in the examination room is the real meaning? That is to make cheating candidates signal disappears, so that everyone fair exam.
