Go Bald or go home: Olympic Heights

students shave their way to end kid's cancer

By Pedro Heizer
It's that time of the year again! Olympic Heights
High School in Boca Raton, completed its annual
St. Baldrick's celebration.
St. Baldrick's is an organization in which its volun-
teers shave their heads in solidarity with kids fight-
ing cancer and family and friends give generously.
The St. Baldrick's Foundation uses the donations to
fund more in childhood cancer research grants than
any organization except the United States Govern-
ment. At a St. Baldrick's event, something amazing
happens. People who normally shy away from the
very thought of childhood cancer find themselves
compelled to support this cause after looking into
the face of these brave children who are beaming

as their friends and family members proudly dis-
play their newly shorn heads. Volunteers and do-
nors see it can be fun to support a serious cause.
This is the sixth year that the event has happened
at Olympic Heights, which was brought not only
to the school but to Palm Beach County six years
ago by Olympic Heights own Renee Manwaring.
Olympic Heights rose over $34,000 in this year's
event with 62 brave students and staff that stepped
up to the plate to raise money for children's can-
cer. Among the first time "shavee" was first year
Olympic Heights Principal Frank Rodriguez that

Detectives still seeking

leads in March 2007 murder

of Randi Gorenberg

By Dale M. King

BOCARATON As the third
anniversary of the shooting
death of Randi Gorenberg of
Boca Raton came and went
on March 23, investigators
say they are still loo-
king for leads in the
unsolved case.
On March 23, 2007,
Gorenberg, 52, was
last seen on video
surveillance tape
leaving the Town
Center at Boca Ra-RandG
ton mall. She was subse-
quently abducted and driven
to a park behind the South
County Civic Center in
Delray Beach where she was
shot to death.
Her body was found on the
ground behind the Civic Cen-
ter while her vehicle, a black
2007 Mercedes Benz GL450
sports utility vehicle, was

ditched by the alleged
shooter at a nearby Ho-
me Depot store.
"Detectives are seeking
hope that someone in the
community has informa-
tion about this homici-
de," said Teri Barbera,
a spokeswoman for the
Palm Beach County
Sheriff's Office.
According to PBSO re-
ports, Gorenberg left
Town Center at 1:16
p.m. March 23, 2007,
according to the surveil-
lance tape.
At about 1:54 p.m., police
said, a citizen called 911 and
informed the Palm Beach
County Sheriff's Office that
she heard gunshots and wit-

nessed a female being pushed
from the passenger side of a
black 2007 Mercedes Benz
SUV in the parking lot of
the South County Civic Cen-
ter in unincorporated Delray
Beach, about five miles from
the mall.
Surveillance cameras cap-
tured the black 2007 black
Mercedes SUV, later identi-

fled as Gorenberg's vehicle,
in front of the Home Depot
parking lot. The Home Depot
is less than two miles north of
where Gorenberg was mur-
dered and is located on the
southeast corner of Atlantic
Avenue and Jog Road, also
in Delray Beach. PBSO said
the vehicle was recovered
in the rear parking lot of the
Home Depot shortly thereaf-
Gorenberg's death was the
first of three incidents that
turned a critical eye on
Town Center security that
year. In August, a woman
and her 2-year-old son were
carjacked and told to drive
around, but were then orde-
red to return to the mall whe-

death in their black Chrysler
SUV in the mall parking lot.

Rubio, 38, father of four chil-
dren and married to a former
Miami Dolphins cheerleader,
drew loud applause from a full
house in the banquet room of

the Boca Raton Marriott as
he gently, but firmly, tore into
President Obama's policies,
taking particular exception
with the recent House pas-
sage of the president's health
care reform bill.
"This country is being run by
people who don't bebelieve
in the concept of individual
liberty," Rubio said, saying
leaders in D.C. believe they
belong to a "guardian class."
This guardian class, he said,
knows the public hates the
health care bill, but feels that
"you don't know what you're
talking about. [They say]
we will force it down your
throats and some of you will
be grateful."
That same guardian class, he
said, doesn't believe in free
enterprise, opting instead for
support of socialist programs.
"The choice you are being
asked to make in 2010 is will
America continue to be an
exceptional country or will it
just be ordinary."
Rubio announced his candi-
dacy for the U.S. Senate seat
in 2009. Crist is also seeking
that post, and the race, though
populated with about a dozen
candidates, has come down
to a runoff between Crist and
Rubio for the GOP nod.
The former state rep who was
speaker of the House from
2007 to 2009 is currently lis-
ted in some polls as having a
commanding lead on fellow
Republican Crist.
Boca political activist Jack
Furnari introduced Rubio at
the event as "the only candi-
date we can trust." He noted
that some political hopefuls
sided with Obama to "em-
brace socialism." But Rubio
"pledged to stand beside us."
Born in Miami to Cuban pa-
rents who left the island na-
tion in 1959, Rubio stood by
the Constitution, saying, "We
all have inalienable rights
from our creator, the right to
be who we want to be. We
de-serve to be in a society

Politics doesn't pose the wor-
se threat to the U.S., said Ru-
bio. He said one of his worse
fears is that "a radical lunatic
in Iran may come into pos-
session of a nuclear bomb. A
few years from now, he may
be able to kill people will one

push of a button."
He noted that Iranians "hate us more than they love life. I want
the commander in chief to be right. I am reticent to criticize
the president on national security. But I'm here to say that time
is running out. The issue of Iran is the most important national
security case in three decades."
Rubio said he feels the administration "is using the downturn
in the economy as an excuse."
The ex-legislator said he was moved to run for the Senate seat
because he saw "no one who would go to Washington to fight
for the [Republican] agenda. This country does not need an
opposition party, it needs an alternative party. "
He said he feels taxes "must be lowered and some need to
be eliminated. The tax code needs to be reformed." He said
income tax forms could be revised to fit "on the back of a

... Boca High to charter school

The conversion of Boca High
- which would be more of
a fiscal and administrative
change than one affecting
the physical plant is seen by
many as a win-win situation.
Schwartz told the City Coun-
cil at a recent workshop ses-
sion that the School Adviso-
ry Council at Boca High has
decided to draft a prelimi-
nary application to convert
the educational center into a
charter school.
A 501c3 nonprofit has alrea-
dy been created, Schwartz
said. "That will be the entity
that the SAC will utilize for
the charter conversion."
The change at Boca High
could be the prelude to con-
version of the city's eight
other public educational centers
to charter schools. Schwartz

I even mentioned mo-
ving next on one
middle school and a

Parents of Boca stu-
Sdents began moving in
the direction of a char-
ter conversion months ago
after an abortive attempt by
the School District to impose
what they called "one size
fits all" educational initiatives
on Boca's A-rated schools.
The mandates would have
included the removal of tra-
ditional one-teacher class-
rooms and imposition of new
homework rules in elemen-
tary schools.
In reaction to the rancor, the
Council established a com-
mittee to study the possibi-
lity of charter school conver-
sions and see if they would
make sense from education
and financial points of view.
Even though the district
dumped its plans for new
educational initiatives back
in January, Boca officials ha-
ve moved ahead with their

naires, which are due to be
sent in soon.
It is extremely important that
all Boca Raton residents fill
out these forms and return
them to the Census Bureau.
The Census is performed on-
ce in ten years and is man-
dated by the US Constitution.
It counts the number of resi-
dents in every municipality
in the country.
The distribution of over $400
billion in federal funding is
predicated on the new 2010
Census figures. For Boca
Raton, not filling out those
forms could be a significant
impact on the way we re-
ceive revenue sharing from

ments if we undercount our

charter plan.
Schwartz said the proposal
to make Boca High a charter
school led to a "rather heated
discussion" at a recent SAC
meeting. He said unionized
school teachers are concer-
ned about maintaining the
salaries and benefits they
currently receive. A report
says 59 percent of teachers at
Boca High oppose the plan.
But Schwartz said teachers
will not lose seniority, pen-
sions or health insurance. In
fact, he added, teacher sala-
ries should rise, but they can-
not be reduced.
He noted that the proposal
would be profitable for both
sides, and will enhance the
community at large.
He pointed out that char-
ter schools are financed by
taxpayers, but are free from
most district oversight. So,
the budget for the schools
would come from state mon-
ey provided for each student.
A city study of the proposal
said the charter plan would
generate enough funding to

Honey Bears from Del Prado

purchase, deliver food to Boca

Helping Hands headquarters
By Dale M. King

BOCA RATON It happens every year. The Honey Bears from Lenae Breger Herman's kin-
dergarten class at Del Prado Elementary School use money they raised through various pro-
jects to purchase food for Boca Helping Hands.
The kids recently visited BHH at its new headquarters to deliver the items they had just pur-
chased at Publix.
In return, BHH Executive Director Linda Gove presented the kids with certificates as they
enjoyed cookies and juice.
How did the kids raise money? One youngster ran a lemonade and cookie stand, and a neigh-
bor contributed a matching amount of money to what they had collected. Another student said
he read books to his sister.
Another kindergarten child said he got $10 for being Student of the Month, and gave it to the
BHH fund.
Breger Herman said this is the sixth year in a row that her kindergarteners have delivered food
"that is purchased with the money that they raise during the year." The project, she said, is an
effort to "reinforce the fact that the children need to be grateful for their wonderful families
and enriched lives and in turn give back to those in need:"
The Honey Bears and their parents met at the Publix in West Boca. Parent leaders had a shop-
ping list, a calculator and an envelope of money. Students proceeded to fill their carts with
groceries. The children next scanned, bagged and hauled the bags into parents' cars that were
lined up caravan style.
The children then delivered the groceries to the Boca Helping Hands Food Kitchen in the new
Remillard Family Resource Center.
The children also toured the new Boca Helping Hands kitchen during their visit.

McCollum right to challenge

Obama's health reform bill

Even a cursory analysis of President Barack Obama's first
14 months in office shows where his attention has been
On health care reform and virtually nothing else.
In those 14 months, with few diversions to issues such as
soaring unemployment, a growing number of home fore-
closures and a crisis level recession, he has kept his eyes
on that single prize.
Fourteen months later, he has finally won that prize. But
at what expense? Acrimony between Democrats and Re-
publicans seems to be at an all-time high. Officials who
swore to uphold the Constitution have danced around the
founding document in an effort to pass the reform bill that
many of them likely have not even read.
For all those reasons, we feel it is right that Florida Attor-
ney General Bill McCollum has filed a lawsuit challenging
the constitutionality of that bill.
It's not necessarily the content of the bill that's so bother-
some, but rather the process used to adopt it. Democrats,
it appears, employed closed-door tactics and took actions
even when the doors were open -- that seem inappropriate.
When the election of Scott Brown killed the Senate's
guarantee of garnering 60 "aye" votes, they opted for the
simple majority rule a tactic normally used only for bud-
getary items to get an approval vote from the House.
No doubt there was considerable arm-twisting as Demo-
crats who were on the fence caved in to offers that seemed
too good to be true.
And what happened afterward? Obama feted those who
voted "yes" on health care reform and said he was prepar-
ing for a "fight" from the opposition.
Why, one might ask, are we fighting each other? Why are
we battling internally? Why are the people and the politi-
cians they elected at each others' throats? Because Obama
and his Democratic colleagues didn't pay heed to the peo-

pie they are supposed to represent and did not recognize
that opposition to his health care bill was rampant.
A measure that raised so many questions and caused so
much rancor and wasted so much political time while the
economy, unemployment and home foreclosures all got
worse should have been jettisoned long ago.
Mr. Obama, you didn't do your job. You saw the jobless
and didn't try to create employment. You saw homeless
and near-homeless, and turned your back on them. You
saw the economy collapsing, and didn't give a nickel to
help businesses.
Now it's time to make yourself accountable to the people
you claim to serve. If a lawsuit filed by McCollum and
other attorneys general is what it takes to test the bill and
your methods, so be it.

The Boca Raton Tribune EDITORIALS & LETTERS April 3 through 16, 2010

First of all

I would like to say thank you to all the
people who have welcomed the paper into
the city. It's been amazing how the people
of the community and the business owners
Shave welcomed us with open arms. This
/'I shows how much they support our paper
J and how much they really want
their city paper back. This welcome push-
es us to raise our standards and make our paper better.


Speaking of change, we now are going to have sports as its
own cover on the back page, and we are going to expand our
local sports coverage along with our favorite teams from
south Florida. We also have begun our new column called
"From the Mayor's desk". And more changes are coming to
the following editions.

Undercover Boss

By being a Brazilian with broken English, it's very easy to be
the undercover boss. Two Saturdays ago I wanted to see the
reaction of the people to the paper. So, Pedro, Andre, and I
went to distribute papers on the coastline along A1A. It was
amazing how many of the receptionists in the apartments
were nice and welcoming. Some were so glad to finally have
a community paper back. All of the receptionists were very
nice except for one man who was very rude to us. I'm not sure

Douglas Heizer
that the president of the association knows how bad this man
treats the people that come in. Even though it was open to the
public, this man was in a very rude way telling me to leave
the property. I'm sorry, but that was what I saw.
On a happy note, I went to deliver the paper at Boca Raton
City Hall and got a very warm reception from Emily Lilly,
the community resources and affairs specialist. She was very
welcoming to us and for that I am very thankful.

On The Road

I was at the Boca Raton Republican Club dinner at which
Marco Rubio was speaking a couple of weeks ago. It was a
great experience. I will try to attend all the dinners and events
I have been invited to because it's a great time in which I
can interact with the readers and it's been a great experience
because I can listen to their suggestions.
It's unnecessary to say I'm impressed with Marco Rubio. He
has a great chance to one day have a high-level position in
politics that not even he expects.
Also, I had the opportunity to go to the Boca Bacchanal. This
was such a wonderful and successful event and we are com-
mitted to supporting the Boca Raton Historical Society. You
can read the coverage of both of these wonderful events in
the paper.

One Last Thing

Publicity is the life blood of a newspaper. Again, I ask for
the support of the business owners in Boca Raton to help keep
this community paper alive by placing your ads here with us.

Have a great Easter and I will see you in the next edition or
maybe out in the community.

Temporary Disability
Study after study confirms
that nearly everyone will face
at least a temporary disability
sometime during their lifeti-
me. More specifically, one in
three Americans will face at
least a 90-day disability be-
fore reaching age 65 and, as
the following graph depicts,
depending upon their ages,
up to 44" of Americans will
face a disability of 2.4 to 4.7
years. On the whole, Ameri-
cans are up to 3.5 times more
likely to become disabled
than die in any given year.
Many Americans Will Face a
Long-Term Disability
Unfortunately, for many of
us the disability will not be
short-lived. According to
the 2000 National Home and
Hospice Care Survey, con-
ducted by the Centers for
Disease Control's National
Center for Health Statistics,
over 1.3 million Americans
received long-term home
health care services during
2000 (the most recent year
this information is available).
Three-fourths of these pa-
tients received skilled care,
the highest level of in-home
care, and 51% percent need-
ed help with at least one "ac-
tivity of daily living" (such
as eating, bathing, getting
dressed, or the kind of care
needed for a severe cognitive
impairment like Alzheimer's
The average length of service
was 312 days, and 70% of in-
home patients were 65 years
of age or older. Patient age
is particularly important as
more Americans live past age
65. The U.S. Department of
Health and Human Services
Administration on Aging

While a relatively small
number (1.56 million) and
percentage (4.5%) of the 65+
population lived in nursing
homes in 2000, the percent-
age increased dramatically
with age, ranging from 1.1%
for persons 65-74 years to
4.7% for persons 75-84 years
and 18.2% for persons 85+.
Planning Tip: Many Ameri-
cans will require significant
in-home care lasting, on av-
erage, close to a year. For
those requiring nursing home
care, that care lasts, on aver-
age, nearly 2 1/2 years! Not
surprisingly, the older we get,
the more likely we will need
long-term care which is sig-
nificant given that Americans
are living much longer.
Long-Term Care Costs Can
be Staggering
Not only will many of us face
prolonged long-term care, in-
home care and nursing home
costs continue to rise. Ac-
cording to the 2006 Study of
the MetLife Mature Market
Institute, national averages
for long-term care costs are
as follows:

aides is $19, higher than in

Happy Passover

By Rabbi Josh Broide
As human beings, freedom is our most cherished attribute.
Free choice is the essence of being human. To attain our full
measure of freedom, we must avoid shackling ourselves with
"artificial" needs. The less our needs, the greater our freedom
to act upon the principle and do what which is right.
And when we have attained that total freedom, then the wealth
and bounty that God has bestowed upon us become tools for
growth and accomplishments, rather than chains of needs that
must be serviced.
As we eat the simple, unadorned matzo on Seder night, let us
reflect that we are 'resetting' our base level of subsistence to
its most elementary of levels. We look around and observe the
table, the meal, the wine, and learn to partake of them not as
enslaved hedonists, but as free men.
Spiritually, our community today is starving. Jews today thirst
for connections to G-d and to our Jewish heritage, yet the path
to these riches so often eludes us. How many of us truly have
the level of Jewish knowledge that we would like? Yet, here
too, we find inspiring rabbis and teachers who labor to spread
Jewish knowledge.
This Passover, amid all the singing, the visiting, and the eat-
ing of Passover, I will remember the cruelties and degradation
slavery meant for our ancestors. I will remember how Moses
was able to look at a fellow Jew, a slave, and say "my brother."
And I will remember that each of those Jews held true to their
Jewish faith, so that I, too, could one day sit around a table of
opulence and recall those days of slavery in Egypt.

mon, affecting an estimated
40 to 60 percent of men.
Gynecomastia is a medical
term that comes from the
Greek words for "women-
like breasts. It is one of the
most common procedures
performed for men. In fact, it
is one of the top five cosmetic
procedures conducted on
males. Though certain drugs
and medical problems have
been linked with male breast
overdevelopment, there is no
known cause in the vast ma-
jority of cases.
For men like you who feel
self-conscious about their ap-
pearance, breast-reduction sur-
gery can help. The procedure
removes fat and/or glandular
tissue from the breasts and, in
extreme cases, removes ex-
cess skin, resulting in a chest
that is flatter, firmer, and bet-
ter contoured.
The best candidates for this
surgery have firm, elastic
skin that will reshape to the
body's new contours. Surge-
ry may be discouraged for
obese men or for those who
are overweight, according
to the American Society for
Aesthetic Plastic Surgery.

gynecomastia. If a medi-
cal problem is the suspected
cause, you'll be referred to an
appropriate specia-list. In ex-
treme cases, your plastic sur-
geon may also recommend a
mammogram, or breast x-ray.
This will not only rule out
the very small possibility of
breast cancer, but will reveal
the breast's composition.
Once your surgeon knows
how much fat and glandular
tissue is contained within the
breasts, he or she can choose
a surgical approach to best
suit your needs.
Liposuction is usually perfor-
med, and can be combined
with the AccuSculpt 1444 la-
ser. The surgery itself usually
takes about an hour and a half
to complete, while other pro-
cedures may take longer.
Gynecomastia surgery can
enhance your appearance
and self-confidence. The
results of the procedure are
significant and permanent.
If your expectations are re-
alistic, chances are good that
you'll be very satisfied with
your new look. Consult with
a board-certified plastic sur-
geon to see if this procedure
is right for you. Good luck!

cated his life 's work to helping people look younger and improve

Kearns Goodwin shares pocket full of presidential

anecdotes with audience at Boca Festival

By Diane Feen

If you think history is bor-
ing, pull up a chair and listen
to Doris Kearns Goodwin.
The Boca snowbird, Pulitzer
Prize winning author, presi-
dential historian and Broo-
klyn Dodgers fan came to
Mizner Park as part of Fes-
tival of the Arts BOCA to
commune and kibitz (talk)
about historical figures in the
White House.
It was an evening of anec-
dotal wonderment. Did you
know that Lyndon B. John-
son liked to talk to reporters
while in the bathroom and
that Winston Churchill came
out of the bath with nothing

on, yet carried on a
conversation with
Theodore Roosevelt
in the White House
(he was a regular
These were just
some of the histori-
cal tidbits we heard
from Goodwin, who
is a masterful story
teller. As a matter of
fact she could talk
about mud drying
on the pavement and
it would sound rive-
The reason this for-
mer intern for the
Johnson administration (and
LBJ memoir writer) has the
inside scoop on matters of
the heart and the home is be-
cause she has written about
(and extensively researched)
LBJ, Abraham Lincoln, The
Fitzgeralds, the Kennedys
and Franklin and Eleanor
She won a Pulitzer in his-
tory for her novel No Ordi-
nary Time: Franklin and Elea-
nor Roosevelt: The Home
Front in World War II, and
also wrote The Fitzgerald's
and the Kennedy's, Lyndon
Johnson and the American
Dream and Wait Till Next
Year: A Memoir, Team of Ri-
vals: The Political Genius of

Abraham Lincoln.
And the best part of her ge-
nius is that Goodwin seems
like the girl next door. "I was
impressed by her generosity
in taking the time to tell sto-
ries and give us wonderful
images of the people she has
written about. She seemed so
approachable and down to
earth," said Donna Rinald.
One thing we didn't expect
was an in-depth account of
Abraham Lincoln being a
man of real integrity. This
looming figure, who most of
us know as the man with the
stern face and bushy beard,
came to life within the con-
fines of Mizner Park. We
learned from Goodwin that
Lincoln had a great sense
of humor, loved to debate
friends and rivals, picked
members of his cabinet who
were the best for the job re-
gardless of how he felt about
them (some were enemies).
"It's better to have them
(your enemies) inside pis-
sing out than being out and
pissing in," Lincoln once
said. We were also told that
Lincoln was kind and easi-
ly gave credit to others for
their hard work (he was no
egomaniac, for sure). Good-
win also told us that Barak
Obama turned to her to dis-
cuss the life of Lincoln as

1,000 people recently atten-
ded the Grand Tasting event

wins third straight in

Sun Belt play

SABR Provides Great

Weekends of Soccer for

Boca's Youth

LAFAYETTE, LA The Florida Atlantic baseball team continues to roll along in conference
play. The Owls won a tightly contested game March 28, 4-3 over Louisiana to earn the series
victory 2-1. FAU has now won three straight conference series to open Sun Belt play.
Trailing 1-0 in the second inning, the Owls (15-8, 6-3) responded to take an early lead. Eddie
Cassidy ripped a single to left field to plate Dan Scheffler and tie the game at 1-1. Two batters
later, Anthony Mesa hit a sacrifice fly to center which chased home Colby Gratton and gave
FAU a 2-1 lead.
Scheffler added to the lead in the third when the junior connected on his sixth home run of
the season. It was a solo shot which put the Owls in front 3-1.
Mike Albaladejo tacked on another run in the sixth with a clean RBI single that scored Colby
Gratton and gave FAU a 4-2 lead. Albaladejo fi-nished the day 2-for-4 with two singles and
an RBI.
Kevin Alexander (3-2) pitched well for the second straight outing and earned the victory. The
right-hander lasted six innings and gave up two runs off eight hits with no strikeouts and one
After the bullpen surrendered a run in the eighth to make it 4-3, Andy Mee slammed the door
again. The junior worked a perfect ninth and earned his fourth save of the season.

The Soccer Association of
Boca Raton, known as
SABR, recently completed
its 33rd year of providing
Boca Raton families' week-
ends of enjoyment from
October through Febru-
ary. Since 1978, SABR has
grown from 200 children to
over 3,000 players this year.
The age groups range from
as young as four years old
to nineteen. SABR consists
of 450 adult volunteers who
coach, train and develop the
soccer youth of our town.
This recreational program
provides age-appropriate in-
struction and competition;
there are ten levels for boys
and nine levels for girls. The
program is committed to
player development and the
acquisition of soccer skills,
as well as teaching the con-
cepts of teamwork, coopera-
tion, good sportsmanship and
fair play. The goal is for the
children to have fun while
playing in a safe, supportive
environment. The teams are
sponsored by local business-
es or parents and the spon-
sorship fee covers the cost
of the uniforms which will
feature the sponsors name on
the uniform. The games are
played on well-manicured
fields on local parks such as
Patch Reef and El Rio and
the amount of players on the
field at one time, the size of
the field and the goals are
modified to fit the age group
of the children. The games
are officiated by three U.S.

Soccer Federation certified
referees. There is usually
one practice per week on a
weeknight after school on
a lighted field. The twelve
game season is followed by
the playoffs and the Division
Championship game called
The Tom Cup. All the cham-
pionship games take place on
the last Saturday in February
at Patch Reef Park with a
party for the kids afterwards.
The Division Champs will
then represent SABR and
play against the champion
squads of the Greater Boca
Youth Soccer Association in
the East / West Challenge.
The teams' coaches and as-
sistant coaches are parents of
a child on their team. For the
past three seasons we have
had both of our daughters
competing in the league and
we have seen considerable
improvement in their level
of play and understanding of
the game. The coaching has
not only been instructional
but these volunteer parents
become personally involved
in a positive, mentoring way
with each of the players on

their team. The coaches
make sure that playing time
is as equal as possible for
each player, regardless of
their skill level, and they ro-
tate positions for the kids so
they are able to acquire new
techniques. The games are
attended by sometimes up to
fifty or sixty parents, siblings
and friends of the families
who sit on the sidelines in
folding chairs on the oppo-
site sideline from the coach-
es. The fans encouragement
for the children are to say the
least, vocal, and usually, and
especially during the play-
offs, extremely enthusiastic.
The family's support of the
players is important as the
kids learn good sportsman-
ship while competing at an
increasingly higher level.
The playoff games are very
dramatic, often ending with
goal kicks to decide a sudden
death double overtime game.
The lessons and experiences
learned by these young play-
ers are invaluable as they
progress up the age-level
ranks of the league where the
competitiveness and teams'
expectation to win increases.
By the end of the season, the
kids have formed very strong
bonds with their teammates
and coaches, and although
there is a sadness in saying
good-bye after the last game,
there is a sense of pride and
accomplishment felt by these
youngsters. We look forward
to the fall for another season
of participation in the Soccer
Association of Boca Raton.
Come join us for the fun!

Michael Beasley is no Tito Jackson

By Pedro Heizer

,Michael Beasley
1 v1 isn't worthy of
being the starting po-
wer forward for the
Miami Heat. People
have always said
that Beasley is going
to be great in a few
years drawing com-
parisons to players
such as David West,
Carlos Boozer, and
even Chris Bosh, but
I don't see it.
Michael Beasley right
now is not even wor-
thy of being called
a Tito Jackson. Tito
was good; Tito was
able to deliver night
in and night out, Tito
was able to be the go
to guy; all character-
istics that Michael
Beasley lack. For a
player that was sup-
pose to bring a franchise
back to the map, he has done
more to the Heat as Adam
Morrison has done to the Los
Angeles Lakers. Yes, I just
took a stab at Beasley. No, I
don't hate him, but the way
he has been playing, it's hor-
rible. You guys might try and
tell me that when we got Bea-
sley we went to the playoffs,
but if you honestly believe
that vnn lre q ni've Miami

Heat fan. Last season wasn't
about Beasley; last year was
the year of the MV3. Michael
Beasley came into a situa-
tion much like that of Darko
Milicic. He came into a team
that wasn't a bad team. Let's
face it, the only reason Mi-
ami only won 15 games was
because all of our players

not the point of a power for-
ward. He needs power, and
lots of it. He needs to be able
to fi-nish in the hole more of-
ten and not be afraid to take
the charge. Beasley needs to
be more like Udonis Haslem.
Yes, If Beasley was to play
more like UD and less like
Wade he would be a force to
be reckoned with.
And another thing, why is
Beasley starting? He should
be coming off the bench like
he was last season. When
Miami has the lineup of
Rafer Alston, Dwyane Wade,
Quentin Richardson, Udo-
nis Haslem, and Jermaine
O'Neal they were 12-9. So
which begs the two ques-
tions, one, why did Miami

the year before were injured.
Sure Miami wasn't going
to win a championship last
season, but they were bound
to make the playoffs. Bea-
sley was icing on the cake,
he wasn't the cake itself.
We would have had a good
team without him. Jermaine
O'Neal, Jamario Moon, Udo-
nis Haslem, Dwyane Wade
and Mario Chalmers are pret-
ty good players.
You guys might say that
I need to give Beasley
a break because he just
came back from an in-
jury, but I will not. He
needs to understand that
in this level of the game,
if you don't produce
you will be chewed up.
Even Dwyane Wade
gets chewed up when
he doesn't perform, so
why would a player
like Michael Beasley
be any different? Hon-
estly, I don't see what
people love about this
kid anyways. I will admit, I
was happy we drafted him
(even got his jersey in my
closet) but when I saw him
play I noticed he was noth-
ing that special. Yes, he has a
beautiful shooting stroke, yes
he can score at will (not that I
have seen any of that since he
left Kansas State) but that's

suspend Alston? (That's a
whole different story that I'm
working on) And two, what
is Beasley doing in the start-
ing lineup? I think if we took
him out and put Haslem back
in we would be doing better.
Beasley is great player there
is no question about it, but he
is not doing well as a start-
er. He is only averaging 15
points and 6 Rebounds. Last
season as a starter, Haslem
averaged 11 points and 8 re-
bounds per game. So what's
the big difference? Why does
Beasley have to start is it be-
cause he was the second pick
in the draft? Whatever the
reason behind it is, I strongly
believe that Beasley should
be in the bench.

Brittany D'Addio

enters 100-100 club
By Mario Sarmento

BOCA RATON- Earlier this
season, Pope John Paul II
senior midfielder Brittany
D'Addio entered an exclu-
sive club when she tallied
her 100th career goal and
100th career assist for the
She is the first player in the
history of Pope John Paul II
to reach the 100 mark in both
D'Addio scored her 100th
goal against the South Flo-
rida Heat, and the game was
stopped and Athletic Direc-
tor Scott Baker presented
her with the ball. Later in
the season, she notched her
100th assist against Summit
"I think both (achievements)
are similar," her coach and
father Bill D'Addio said.
"I've always been a coach
who emphasized a great as-
sist. When I played striker,
I had an appreciation for a
great pass for a great goal."
It was a trait D'Addio clearly
passed on to his daughter,
who finished the 2009 regu-
lar season with 118 career
goals and 102 career assists,
and she helped her team into
the Class 2A regional semifi-
nals after the Eagles' recent
8-0 win over Westminster
When asked which miles-
tone she is most proud of,
Brittany said, "Honestly, the
assists. I just love having
a lot of them. I feel better
when I pass."
With that mentality, it should
come as no surprise that Brit-
tany is just as selfless off the

to help special needs chil-
dren. She soon found that she
loved it, so much so that she
has worked with the "TOPS"
program every year, where
she teaches the fundamentals
of the sport to the kids.
And D'Addio has decided to
make a career of it, choosing
special needs education as
her major in college.
She isn't finished with soc-
cer though, as D'Addio has
earned a scholarship to play
for Flagler College at the Di-
vision II level next year.
"I love the coach, I love
the atmosphere, I love the
beach," she said of her deci-
sion. "It (St. Augustine) re-
minds me of home."
And when she looks back on
her years at Pope John Paul,
D'Addio said her first mem-
ories won't be of the 100-
100 club she has pioneered.
"I'm really proud of it, but it
doesn't stick out," she said.
"I'm going to think of my
teammates (first), and re-
member them."
