Let them know you saw their Ads in the Boca Tribune.By: Guadalupe Monarrez Memorial Day, a federal holiday observed annually in the United States, is a day to remember the men and women who have died while serving in the United States Armed Forces. While Memorial Day did not become an official federal holiday until 1971, many Americans have commemorated fallen soldiers since the Civil War, World War I, and World War II. In celebration of Memorial Day, many observe the holiday by visiting cemataries and memorials, while cities across the United States host large parades that brings civilians and military personnel together. The Veterans Speakers Forum of Palm Beach County, established in 2010, is an orga nization that hopes to educate students about the importance of veterans in our community and their history in the United States Armed Forces. Corporal Burt Richards, creator and founder of the Veterans Forum, was able to have all Palm Beach County Schools close on Veterans Day as of November 11th, 2011. Our mission is to educate the school board and have them see our programs, and to continue using our programs. By hiring war veterans, they will not only have a job, but they will be able to discuss their history during these programs. I hope to see that all schools in Florida are closed on Veterans Day from Nov 11th 2012, and there after, proclaimed Cpl Richards. Cpl Richards recognizes that there is a strong need for educational programs about war veterans within the Palm Beach County school curriculum. Not to take away from our dedicated teachers, but many are baby boomers, said Richards, the school curriculum depends on the Veterans Speakers Forum for students to benefit from our educational programs that we present at our own expense. Cpl Richards praises all the veterans that are a part of the Veterans Forum and ac knowledges that they do such a tremendous job sharing their stories. Some of the members that make up the organization include lieutenant Jacob Goldman of Boca Raton, who was part of the Air Force and involved in the atomic bombing of Japan. Sergeant Elliott Lichtenstein of Boca Raton, who was a combat medic and aided injured service men. Stanley Saltz, who is a Battle of the Bulge war veteran. Harry Zaslow, who is a World War II combat veteran and a liberator of the Dachau concentration camp. Corporal Bob Everson, who is a Vietnam veteran that was pronounced dead on the battle field, but was miraculously revived while being taken to the morgue. Sergeant George Fisher, who is the founder of the 67th year of the Battle of the Bulge Veterans Organization. Erne Greenblatt, who was a paratrooper that landed in Germany to liberate hostages and war prisoners. Tom DeCicco, who uses therapy dogs to aid military personnel. Hank Goldman, who was a navigator on a B-25 attack bomber in the South Pacific during World War II. Michael Kelsey, who served 20 years in the United States Army as an infantryman and a Senior Intelligence Analyst. On May 29th, Cpl Richards held a Veterans Speakers Forum seminar, honoring Memorial Day, at Boca Raton Middle School. The seminar addressed 1,377 students in all social studies classes, which gave them the opportunity to listen to war veterans from Iraq, Afghanistan, and Vietnam. We expect to have those who attended, to write an essay and turn it in to their teachers as to what they learned with our appearance and what they did on their day off, Memorial Day May 28th, said Cpl Richards. Master Sergeant Michael Kelsey, who has served for nearly 20 years in Iraq and Afghanistan, talked to students about his experiences in the United States Army as an infantryman and a Senior Intelligence Analyst. I hope students gain an understanding of the sacrifices made by past, present, and future veterans, said Kelsey, Freedom is not free, we should live a life worthy of their sac rifices. Sergeant Tom DeCicco, a Vietnam War veteran, spoke to students about his work in the Armed Forces and brought his therapy dog, which he uses to help veterans and pa tients at Boca Raton Regional Hospital. We usually take him to Boca Raton Regional Hospital for visits, said Sergeant DeCicco, the therapy dog is used to lift spirits and boost morale. The Veterans Speakers Forum hopes to build relationships with other organizations as well. By providing educational programs, they hope organizations will be able to raise funds for themselves. We are almost like a professional Broadway show, but we are veteran history educa tors, said Cpl Richards. Anyone who is interested in the Veterans Speakers Forums programs can contact Cpl Richards at (561)734-7263 or at pr.group@ juno.com. Celebrating Memorial Day With VeteransCommunity NewsThe Boca Raton Tribune Seventh Annual Oc Future Authors Project Writing Workshop Begins June 11 in BocaBOCA RATON Oc, a Canon Group Company and an international leader in digital document management, announced that Robert Forbes, childrens book author and president of ForbesLife magazine; and Mary Monroe, a high school teacher and young adult book author, will be the featured speakers at the 2012 Oc Future Authors Project writing workshop. In its seventh year, the program begins on June 11 with an intense eight-day writing workshop held at Don Estridge High Tech Middle School, 1798 NW Spanish River Boulevard, Boca Raton. Forty middle and high school students will be selected to participate from 85 applicants. The program is a partnership between the School District of Palm Beach County and Oc North America, and is made possible with grants from the Lawrence Sanders Founda tion; Maroone, an AutoNation Company; and Xplor International, a not-for-profit educational and networking association serving users and suppliers of document technologies. The authors will be donating their time to provide insight and advice to the budding artists and complement the curriculum offered by the staff of three certified Palm Beach County language arts teachers. The teachers for the 2012 class are: Nicole Adamo, who teaches at Don Estridge Middle School; Katrina Sapp Holder, a playwright and short story author who also teaches at Don Estridge Middle School and Cartheda T. Mann, the chair of the English department and writing coach at Glades Central Community High School. Secondary Literacy Program Planner Dianna Fedderman supervises the program for the District. The Oc Future Authors Project writing workshop is designed to help students become published authors. Students improve their writing and critical thinking skills, develop an understanding of how authors are published, and learn about todays digital print and publishing opportunities. Students gain insight into the process of writing, editing, and digitally publishing books through interactions with Oc executives, the published authors, and the teachers. Writings from each student are then compiled, professionally published and digitally printed in final book form by the Boca Ratonbased Oc North America Production Printing Systems division. The finished book is then unveiled at a book signing hosted by the city of Boca Ra ton at the Spanish River Public Library. Since the programs inception in 2006, nearly 300 students have participated in the Oc Future Authors Project writing workshops. Without support from companies like Oc North America and the other sponsors of the program, partnerships like this would not exist, said Mary Kay Murray, the executive director of the Palm Beach Education Foundation. Creative public-private partnerships, like the Future Authors program, give our students extraordinary experiences they otherwise would not have. Francis McMahon, vice president of marketing, Production Printing Systems at Oc North America, says his company remains committed to this program, which enriches the educational experience for so many budding authors. We continued to be impressed by the students who choose to spend their summer vacations as Oc Future Authors because of their passion for writing, he said. Our hope is that this experience will result in a group of young adults with lifelong commitments to writing, reading and learning. McMahon added that the age of digital publishing has opened up more opportunities for these aspiring authors. Digital printing technologies are revolutionizing the business of book publishing, he said. Publishers can now cost-effectively print books in run lengths anywhere from 1 to 10,000, creating exciting opportunities for new talentlike these future authorswho now can get their works published. As a leader in providing digital printing solutions for the book industry, we are delighted to support the Oc Future Authors Project and to help make the students dreams to become published authors a reality.From left are author Robert Forbes; Francis McMahon, vice president of marketing, Production Printing Systems at Oc North America and Tracy Rudnick, director of programs and grants, Education Foundation of Palm Beach County.

The unique program will provide Office Depot with a source of highly qualified applicants for potential employment following their service in the military. It also serves as an additional recruiting incentive that increases the Armys ability to man the force. To commemorate the partnership, Office Depot held a ceremonial signing at its global headquarters in Boca Raton. Were very excited about our alliance with the U.S. Army PaYS Program, said Robyn Tyler, vice president of Global Talent Management for Office Depot. This program will provide us with a steady stream of great candidates who are motivated, experienced, and qualified, and can be placed in a variety of positions at Office Depot, whether in our headquarters, stores, or in the field. The U.S. Army PaYS Program, which began in 2000, guarantees a soldier an interview with a PaYS partner employer once he or she decides to re-enter the civilian workforce. The Army is confident that the soldier will be an asset to any company or organization since the tangible and intangible traits of the Army soldier are desirable attributes that are heavily sought after.

Box 970593 Boca Raton, FL 33497Dear Dale, Thank you very much for participating on our panel for Leadership Boca Raton 2012 Wednesday at Bogarts Bar and Grille. We truly appreciate your taking time out of your busy schedules to share your knowledge and information in journalism with this years Leadership Class. It was an intriguing program that class members enjoyed. Thank you again to each and every one of you! Jayne Scala, CPC Business Solutions Manager Dear Dale, We thoroughly enjoyed the Business Awards Luncheon last week! Congratulations again to Jason Doherty of R2 Unified Technologies the 2012 Small Business Leader of the Year; Rick Konsavage of Ocean Properties Ltd. the 2012 Business Leader of the Year; and Florida Atlantic University the 2012 Business of the Year! Thank you again to all of our sponsors and to everyone who attended and made this a memorable event. Sincerely, Troy McLellan President and CEO Greater Boca Raton Chamber of Commerce Dear Editor, Thank you for, Intersection Safety Program Red Light Cameras in Boca Raton. The program contains a severe problem. Vehicles which speed up to the Red Light but stop before entering the Red Light Crossway, nevertheless set off the flash which falsely indicates a violation. The Flash is only 80% accurate, thereby falsely indicating a violation 20% of the time. This is unfair and requires immediate remedy. Sincerely, Leo ShatinWe got an email a few weeks ago from Carol Connors, a singer, songwriter and frequent visitor to Boca Raton. She is very good friends of artist-sculptor Yaacov Heller (of Gallery 22 fame) and his wife, Sue, and we have come to count her as one of our friends as well. Anyway, Carol was notifying us from her home in Beverly Hills that Carroll Shelby, the famous auto racer and designer of the Ford Cobra and the Mustang Cobra, had passed away at the age of 89. I recalled the name of Carroll Shelby from my teen years when his creations of the Ford Cobra racing car and the Mustang Cobra street vehicle were hailed in story and song. Shelby had been a race car driver, even after suffering from heart disease. He had a heart transplant in 1990 and was one of the worlds longest surviving heart transplant patients. It was only recently that I found out that Carol Connors actually wrote the song, Little Cobra, celebrating the accomplishments of the Shelby-designed vehicle. It became a top five hit in the mid-1960s for a group called The Rip Chords. Regular readers will remember that the era of surf songs and car songs coincided with my teenage years, so I was very familiar with the tune and have checked it out on YouTube since then. Viewers can hear the song and watch a series of slides on the computer screen showing models of the Ford Cobra in black-andwhite and color shots. I didnt realize the very close connection that existed between Carol Connors and Carroll Shelby. I found this account in her email. After smashing the front of her then-boyfriends AC Bristol car, Connors was sent to find Shelby to see if he could put a Cobra front on an AC back. So there I am in his officeI said Mr. Shelbyis there any way you can put a Cobra front on a Bristol back? Well, he became hysterical. He just couldnt stop laughing, remembers Connors. He looked at me and said, You know little girl, if you write a song about my car and it goes to number one, Ill give you oneand the rest was history, she added. (You can find a photo of her and the car Shelby gave her on the Internet.) The Rip Chords 1964 recording of Little Cobra peaked in the top five on the Billboard Charts. The famous lyrics Hey, Little Cobra/ Dont you know Youre gonna shutem down became a phrase synonymous with Shelbys racing wins during his career. When the song was at the peak of its popularity, Connors remembers a funny meeting with The Beach Boys Brian Wilson, who came up to her and said, We knew that song was written by a girl. I said, Brian, how did you know that? and he said because you cant take your Cobra out of gear and coast to the line! remembers Connors. I said, if youre that far in front, you can do that. Connors has had a long career in music, one that includes co-authorship of Gonna Fly Now, the theme from Rocky. She was also lead singer of the 1950s group, The Teddy Bears, best known for its song, To Know Him is to Love Him. The tune was written specifically to showcase Connors voice by another member of the group. That man who is still well known today is Phil Spector.

Let them know you saw their Ads in the Boca Tribune. By Douglas HeizerTHOUGHTS FROM THE PUBLISHER EDITORIALS & LETTERS East/West Boca Raton, FL By Dr. Synesio Lyra, Jr.POSITIVE LIVING Acceptance Which Leads to ContentmentSome people live a perpetually unsatisfying life because their expectations are so unrealistic. They tend to overanalyse what people say and do, while applying the same rigid rule to themselves, and to every experience they face. A child of God, very especially, should know in advance that there is no perfection to be found in the world; everything has been adversely affected by the reality of evil. Even the philosopher Jean Jacques Rousseau had admitted that all things are good as they come from the hands of God; all things degenerate when they fall into the hands of humans. To make the best of any situation you need to learn to accept things as they are, while employing every effort to improve conditions and all situa tions you are faced with. As it often occurs, where one person is incapable to accomplish certain things, many more will become available to fill that gap, and take care of that situation. There will also be times when you shall be the one to meet the need of another, and heal a hurt you may encounter along lifes journey! Dont be overly preoccupied with the life you didnt live. Instead, concentrate on improving the life you still have, and make the best of it, with Gods help! Rather than being conditioned by circumstances, you should be affected and motivated by certainties, for only these give direction to a life of fulfilment. Even so, the road to joy and fulfilment, is not devoid of obstacles! You cannot have it all, nec essarily, but you can learn to deal effectively with what is apportioned to you in life; the good may be magnified, while the bad experiences can be acknowledged and often removed. Author Lisa Engelhardt addressed this issue when she remarked that contentment doesnt mean getting all you want, but enjoying what you have. Dont postpone enjoyment! When confronted by any impediments or difficult challenges in the course of your earthly journey, face them not as paralysing barriers but simply as signals to a better way to follow! After all, the best is always ahead of you, and only gradually will you grasp it, and enjoy it! If you condition yourself to be a treasure hunter, you shall surely encounter happy surprises in life, even if by looking back, and recognizing previous experiences as golden nuggets you may not have noticed when they first happened to you. You have only this one life to live. Thus, you should make the most of it; no one else can live the life given to you, nor can you live your life through somebody else. Remember also, for making the right decisions, there is no time for delays! When the Boca Raton Tribune celebrated its 100th edition last week, it made me think about the state of newspapers in America today. When we started the newspaper more than two years ago, we knew it was a gamble. We knew it was a difficult time to get into the newspaper game because many papers were suffering advertising and circulation losses due to the economy and competition from electronic media. In the past week, I have seen two sides of the newspaper issue. I have read about a very rich man who has developed tremendous faith in the industry so much so that he is investing millions in the trade. On the other hand, I saw how a business with a location in Boca Raton has decided to shun newspaper advertising altogether. To me, this shows a total lack of faith in this medium. The man who has faith in the newspaper system is none other than billionaire Warren Buffett. His company, Berkshire Hathaway Inc., has agreed to buy 63 newspapers from Media General Inc. for $142 million. An Associated Press article said Berkshire Hathaway is also extending a loan to Media General and taking a 19.9 percent stake in the company, which will still own 18 TV sta tions. Media General also owns some websites, such as coupon provider DealTaker.com. Media General said the deal includes all of its newspapers except the Tampa Tribune and smaller newspapers in that market. Its in talks to sell those newspapers to other buyers. Berkshire Hathaway is buying the Richmond TimesDispatch in Virginia, the Winston-Salem Journal in North Carolina and the Morning News of Florence, S.C., among others. Berkshire Hathaway has owned the Buffalo News of New York for decades and bought its hometown paper, the Omaha World-Herald, in December. The company is also the largest shareholder of Washington Post Co., with a 23 percent stake. Buffet is a believer. He has long defended newspapers, saying that they will have a decent future if they continue delivering information that cant be found elsewhere. In towns and cities where there is a strong sense of community, there is no more important institution than the local paper, Buffett said. The many locales served by the newspapers we are acquiring fall firmly in this mold and we are delighted they have found a permanent home with Berkshire Hathaway. Thats the same message the Boca Raton Tribune has been declaring since we first began as a website in early 2010, and then expanded into the Boca Raton Tribune newspaper a few months later. The Delray Beach Tribune has just come out in print after developing as a website for many months. So, it was a little disappointing when our restaurant reviewer, Marc Kent, and I went to the Capital Grille the other day after being invited to lunch by the higher-ups at the elite restaurant. Marc was intent on reviewing the lunch, but when they restricted our menu to only a few items morsels which were somewhat less than inviting Marc ended up doing the review, and I decided to pay for my own meal. At the end of our meal, the managing partner came to our table and was very nice. We talked for a while and I asked the restaurant operators if they would consider buying an ad in our newspaper. I was told that the Capital Grille does not do newspaper advertising. Why, I asked. Why not? A lot of advertisers help keep this newspaper going by advertising. Many are restaurants. Does the Capital Grille have no faith in ANY paperor just the Tribune? He told me that that the corporate offices dont believe in community newspapers to place ads, they only use maga zines. I do want to say something about the Capital Grille. It is a wonderful restaurant; in fact its one of my favorite restaurants. The food is excellent, and I fully intend to go there again. But I have a question. If the Capital Grille doesnt believe in community newspapers to place ads, why are they asking us to write a food review? Something must be wrong, or maybe I just dont understand. 561-208-6029 Dr. Synesio Lyra, Jr. is a Florida resident who, for many years, was a professor at the post-graduate level.

Let them know you saw their Ads in the Boca Tribune.BOCA RATON -The Pap Corps Recognition and Installation Luncheon, held at Boca West Country Club was especially festive this year as the all-volunteer organization celebrated 60 years of raising funds for cancer research. This years donation of $3.2 mil lion was presented to Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center at the lun cheon. Speakers included Donna E. Shalala, president of the University of Miami; Pascal J. Goldschmidt, M.D., senior vice president for medical affairs and dean of the UM Miller School of Medicine; and Joseph Rosenblatt, M.D., past interim director of Sylvester. The multi-million dollar donation represents one year of fundraising by the Corps more than 20,000 volunteers located in the tri-county area. The outstanding efforts of these dedicated men, women and teens were praised by all of the speakers at the luncheon. Dean Goldschmidt announced an array of accomplishments that Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center recently achieved, including the recruitment of world-renowned cancer specialist Stephen D. Nimer, M.D., who leaves Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center to join Sylvester as its new director. Goldschmidt called the $3.2 million gift awesome and said, This annual gift allows us to continue fund ing research that leads to new treatments and diagnostics. I know that with The Pap Corps behind us, we will beat cancer. Dr. Nimer, who was in transit to Florida, also sent his congratulations saying, Knowing the importance of research funding, I cannot overstate the value of having such a dedicated group of volunteers behind us at Sylvester. Outgoing chapter presidents were recognized and new executive board members were installed. President Naomi Prever passed the gavel to JoAnne Goldberg, the Corps new president. The Pap Corps has donated over $43 million to cancer research since 1952; more than $32 mil lion in the last eleven years alone. These funds provide the seed money for vital research programs at Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center at the Uni versity of Miami Miller School of Medicine, South Floridas only universitybased cancer center.

Deputy Mayor Susan Haynie told the Boca Raton Tribune that the idea of finding a sister city in Brazil came up for discussion during goal-setting sessions held by the mayor and City Council earlier this month. It was decided to reach out and find a sister city in Brazil, she said. Everyone on the council agreed with the proposal. The idea of having a sister city is to stimulate economic development, said Haynie and Councilwoman Constance Scott, who chairs the Community Redevelopment Agency (CRA). Publisher Heizer, who is a native of Brazil, was asked by Haynie and Scott to suggest some communities that would make good sister cities for Boca Raton. Haynie said Heizer is working on that now and will come back to the council with suggestions. This is something we are excited about, said Haynie. She said this idea actually ties in to something that has been discussed by the Boca Raton Airport Authority. They are thinking of having a customs office at the airport so planes from other counties can come to Boca. We want to know what the city can do to help them. Boca Raton once had Spandau, Germany, as a sister city, but that relationship faded away many years ago. Haynie said the council approached Heizer because he is active in the large Brazilian community in Boca Raton, and also founded a Brazilian Rotary Club in West Boca Raton. Holding check are Donna E. Shalala, and Naomi Prever. Surrounding from left are Hannah Scheff, Tutsie Lipkin, JoAnne Goldberg, W. Jarrard Goodwin, M.D., Joseph Rosenblatt, M.D., Pascal J. Goldschmidt, M.D. and Joan Scheiner.Sachs Comes Out Fighting in Preparation for Two-Incumbent State Senate BattleDELRAY BEACH In a vocal blast that officially kicked off her bid for reelection to the State Senate, Maria Sachs told fellow Democrats Monday night she was ready to take down the last person who doesnt represent our principles. She tossed those barbs at fellow sena tor, Ellyn Bogdanoff. The two officeholders will face each other in a rare twoincumbent race forced on them through redistricting. Sachs is currently the state senator from District 30. Republican Bogdanoff represents District 25. With the lines redrawn, both candidates are running for the newly created District 34 seat. The new political territory runs from Harbor Isles in Fort Lauderdale to the city of Boynton Beach and hugs mostly coastal areas until it reaches Palm Beach County, where it jogs west and takes in Democratic strongholds like Kings Point. Fronting a bevy of powerful Democrats at the South County Civic Center, Sachs promised that that person Bogda noff will be defeated. Following the session, Sachs told the Boca Raton Tribune that the new District 34 is skewed slightly in favor of Democrats. Stepping to the podium before Sachs were such Democratic heavies as Chris Smith, the incoming party leader of the Florida Senate; County Commissioner Burt Aaronson; Democratic Party Chairman Rod Smith and state Rep. Joseph Abruzzo, who is also running for a Senate seat. Speakers characterized Sachs as a tough competitor. Maria has done a phenomenal job, said Chris Smith. Aaronson pointed out that I know Maria is a fighter. Party Chairman Rod Smith made some predictions and said, You can hold me to them. He said President Obama and Sen. Bill Nelson will win re-election. He said Sachs will defeat Bogdanoff and Democrats will end 14 years of domination by one party Republicans in Tallahassee. In her address, Sachs said she favors womens rights, including a womans right to choose, and she also backs proper funding of education. She said she also stands four-square in favor of care for the disabled, seniors and veterans. From left are State Sen. Maria Sachs, Democratic State Party Chairman Rod Smith and Boca Raton Democratic Party Chairman Mark Alan Siegel.

Let them know you saw their Ads in the Boca Tribune.By Dale King BOCA RATON As the campaign for the 2012 presidential election in November begins to heat up, so also is the planning for the final debate between the two presidential candidates scheduled for Oct. 22 on the campus of Lynn University in Boca Raton. Palm Beach County recently came up with $150,000 in tourism tax dollars for the university to market the debate as a destination. Tourism officials say the event is expected to attract 1,000 journalists and fill at least 3,000 hotel rooms in the area. That decision comes a month after Gov. Rick Scott vetoed $250,000 in state money that was meant to help local communities cover security costs related to the debate. Although county commissioners approved the tourism tax disbursement unanimously, Commissioner Paulette Burdick questioned university and tourism officials on how the county would benefit. But Commissioner Burt Aaronson likened the debate to the Super Bowl, and said it would give the county considerable exposure. In addition, the Greater Boca Raton Chamber of Commerce is getting into the act. At a recent business awards luncheon, Chamber President and CEO Troy McLellan announced that the organization is launching an initiative in conjunction with Lynn University where your company can become an official small business partner to the 2012 presidential debate. As a partner, your company will enjoy the benefits of having the eyes of the world on Boca Raton on October 22, he said. You will be featured on both the Chambers and Lynn Universitys debate website pages, receive tickets to an exclusive VIP debate viewing party at Mizner Park in addition to an official Debate Partner certificate, lapel pins, and much more. McLellan said, This is a great opportunity to be a part of something that is very unique and rare and perhaps once in a lifetime! And although we all might not be watching the debate on Lynns campus, our community will rally and demonstrate our strengths and special attributes. So, when 3,000 members of the national media descend on our great city in October, lets show them how Boca Raton is unified in our efforts to support our success. For details and to become an Official Small Business Partner for $255, visit www.bocaratonchamber.com/2012debate. Looking forward to the general elec tion, Lynn has also launched its official http://debate2012.lynn.edu/ 2012 presidential debate website. The site will be the universitys central repository for all things related to the debate. It will allow users to find out the latest information on student events, classes, community happenings, lectures and other activities related to the event. We are thrilled to be a part of this signature event for American democracy, Lynn University President Kevin M. Ross, said. And this site will help us share information about all the exciting onand off-campus happenings coming this year that are related to the debate. It will be a springboard for anyone who wants to share in this amazing experience. The site was designed for easy navigation and quick access to information. As such, it offers two large buttons on the right side: Become a Volunteer and Maps and Directions, and a simple menu along the left side that may expand as more information becomes available. To help everyone keep track of how long until the event, the site also offers a countdown clock in the upper-right of the site. The clock is visible no matter what page the user is on. bocaratontribune.com Municipal NewsThe Boca Raton Tribune The presidential debate will be held in the Wold Performing Arts Center Oct. 22 on the campus of Lynn University in Boca Raton. Commission OKs Revenue Bonds for Lynn University ImprovementsThe Board of County Commissioners approved the issuance of up to $12 million in revenue bonds by the Palm Beach County Educational Facilities Authority for water and electrical in frastructure improvements on the cam pus of Lynn University in Boca Raton. Commissioners noted that no county funds are involved. In other business at its May 15 meeting, the commission took the following action: Efficiency study discussed an efficiency study conducted by Gerstle, Rosen & Goldenberg, PA, CPA. The board agreed to hold separate workshops in June to further discuss the reports recommendations and set cost-saving goals and objectives, and to discuss with constitutional officers the feasibility of participating with the county for central services. Clerk & Comptroller heard a presentation of the countys annual financial report by Clerk & Comptroller Sharon Bock. Financial Management & Budget approved a transfer of up to $200,000 from Pollution Recovery Trust Fund reserves to fund a two-year staff position or consultant to provide climate change action planning and environmental sustainability coordination. Island Way continued to the July 10 meeting consideration of an alignment for Jupiter Park Drive/Western Corridor, to be known as Island Way. This road section is located within an unincorporated area of Jupiter between Jupiter Gardens Blvd. and 68th Terrace. Board approval will allow for establishment of the overall alignment from Jupiter Park Drive to Indiantown Road. Vehicles for hire adopted a series of amendments to the Palm Beach County Vehicle for Hire Ordinance. They include extending through June 2013 a moratorium that prohibits any new vehicle-for-hire companies from operating in Palm Beach County. Staff will return in three to six months with specific standards mirroring those in effect at Palm Beach International Airport. Property maintenance approved a series of amendments to the property maintenance code to create consistency, correct spelling and grammatical errors, and to provide a means to recover the cost of abatement of nuisances via a non-ad valorem assessment. Pride contract agreed to extend the countys current contract with Pride Integrated Services for misde meanor probation services for up to six months. A termination for convenience clause will be added. The extension allows time for the RFP process to be completed without disruption of services. Boards and committees approved the removal of one member of the Public Art Committee and one mem ber of the Overall Economic Development Program Committee for noncompliance with the revised Palm Beach County Code of Ethics Ordinance training requirements. Preparation for Presidential Debate at Lynn Heating Up Operation Neighborhood Watch Nets Over a Dozen ArrestsBoca Raton, FL Over the last couple of weeks, members of the Boca Raton Police Services Department devised Operation Neighborhood Watch to stem the rising number of residential and automobile burglaries in the city. The project involved shifting officers from other areas of the department to undercover assignments, stepped-up intelligence briefings, targeted marked patrols to areas of concern and neighborhood education efforts. The impact was immediate. Since the start of Operation Neighborhood Watch, more than a dozen people have been arrested for Automobile Burglary, Residential Burglary, Loitering & Prowling and other charges. In all cases the individuals arrested were not from the City of Boca Raton and were in possession of burglary tools or stolen property. Effective crime prevention starts with alert and involved neighbors. During neighborhood surveys following crimes, many citizens reported that they saw suspicious activity, but did not call the police. The Boca Raton Police Services Department encourages residents to report suspicious activity immediately to 561-3686201 or 911. If it doesnt look right, it probably isnt right. Citizens can also find tips to protect their homes on our web site athttp:// www.ci.boca-raton.fl.us/police/home_security.shtm. Residents may request a home security survey from our Crime Prevention Unit by calling 561-347-3938.

Police said a white Ford pick-up or Sport Trac traveling north on St. Andrews Boulevard was making a right turn onto West Glades Road when it struck a female pedestrian. She was taken to Delray Medical Center where she remains in stable condition. Police identified her as Ana A. Tapia Lacayo, 24, of Boca Raton. The hit and run vehicle is described as a white Ford F-Series pick-up truck or Sport Trac. Investigators are ask ing anyone who may have information about the crash to contact Traffic Investigator Mike Daly at (561) 3381356. By now everyone in town has seen the Boca Citizens for Fiscal Responsibilitys email attacking the Citys Fire and Police Pension Plans and arguing that that the City Council should immediately address the unfunded portions of these pensions before it is too late. This communication begs the ques tions of. Why now? Why the sudden urgen cy? Why this group? The situation that is being com plained of actually dates back at least two decades perhaps three. Firefighters work 42 hours a week, including weekends. This formula was imposed by the city council some 30 years ago and the benefits being complained of were negotiated over many years by former city council members who are no longer in the public eye. In the 2012 election cycle, one of the charges leveled against Councilman Majhess was that he was a shill for the unions and that he is responsible for the unfunded pension issues now being highlighted by this group. That assertion was and is simply untrue. Of todays elected body, only the Mayor and Deputy Mayor have been on council long enough to be held, at least, partially responsible for this eco nomic boondoggle. The others ought not be held to answer for the errant ways of past councils. In fact, within the last few years, this council has seen the unions voluntarily agree to reopen contracts resulting in give backs in excess of 1.7 million dollars. Hence, one can argue that there is already a movement for fiscal responsibility by the unions themselves rather than by this shallow effort to demonize the citys unions as the villain. Why the urgency? Could it be to cover up other areas of fiscal irresponsibility? On May 2, at the citys goal setting session, both founders of Boca Citizens for Fiscal Responsibility spoke sternly against the City Managers suggestion that the city could save up to $5 million a year if it turned over its two libraries to the Palm Beach County library system. Both spoke in favor of reducing firefighter pensions claiming they are rising at an unsustainable rate and are the real elephant in the room. Perhaps that is so. Perhaps there is good argument that these contracts are rich and need to be modified. But these obligations are contractual and not negotiable at this time, a fact that could not have been overlooked. Finally, why this group? One should never attack the messenger because of the message but, this groups founders are far from fis cally responsible. They are also the founders of Friends of the Library and in 2003 pushed the referendum to build a new downtown library. That library just broke ground last week and is estimated to cost in the neighborhood of 12 million dollars with an annual operating budget of 2.5 million. Certainly not a fiscally responsible action in these times and considering that there is a brand new library on Spanish River Blvd, a mere 4.0 miles away. So one can argue that the Boca Citizens for Fiscal Responsibility are anything but.it is fiscally irresponsible to point fingers towards one set of fi nancial challenges while diverting attention away from the set of financial challenges that your pet project creates. Of course, politics can always be seen as rearing its ugly head! Point the blame for the Citys pension boondoggle where it belongs. Place it with past councilpersons and with the two current council members still holding onto their seats of power. Those elected officials that agreed to these rich pension benefits and who gladly accepted the unions backing in the next election cycle to retain the power and notoriety of elected office. Should negotiations work to right these perceived excesses? Of course they should.. Do we need the 12 million dollar library and the 2.5 million in additional annual overheads? I think not. Do we need to hold onto the Wild flower site and tie up 7 million dollars that could be better utilized to provide services like reopening parks and recreational facilities? Of course we dont. Do we need to be placed in a situation where some people win while oth ers lose? I think not..but then, I dont have a vote.

Let them know you saw their Ads in the Boca Tribune.By Dale King BOCA RATON -Rebecca Zerbo, a 7th grader at Eagles Landing Middle School in West Boca, knows that bullying in school is a serious problem. But when it happened to her, she put her anti-bullying response into overdrive. What came of it was the Positive Pocket anti-bullying campaign that has now grown to be an award-winning business. It includes a card with a list of positive affirmations that a person can keep in his or her pockets, lunchboxes, cars or desks to read when things arent going well or after an incident of bullying. The cards are free and available on Rebeccas website, www.positivepocket. org. Zerbo is also launching a line of bracelet-pens that will be sold as a profit-making product for her business. Zerbos enterprise got a shot in the arm when she became part of the Young Entrepreneur Academy sponsored by the Greater Boca Raton Chamber of Commerce. As a participant in this years YEA class of 24, she was selected to compete in the national YEA! Bright Ideas Competition in Rochester last month and won the national title. She earned a $30,000 scholarship and a trip to Washington D.C. to attend the U.S. Chambers Small Business Summit this week to be recognized by business and community leaders from all over the United States. Zerbo told the Boca Raton Tribune that her business has blossomed since she joined up with the YEA progam. She remembers the bullying incident well. Another girl walked up to her and it just started. The bully took my band folder and threw around the pa pers. She made a scene. I ran into the bathroom and cried. After getting so upset by the bullying incident, Rebecca failed a math test, she said. She spent that night working on the computer to come up with a bullying remedy. It resulted in the creation of the Positive Pocket. Rebecca took the card with positive messages inscribed on it to school the next day. When she left at the end of the day, she said, she felt great. And her mother, Laura, noticed the change. When I pulled up to the school, I saw a complete difference. Her mother knows something about the problem as she is a special education teacher. She said she was also aware in the days before the incident when Rebecca did not seem to be herself. You could see it in her face. She wasnt bubbly, Laura said. When Rebecca created the Positive Pocket, her mother drove her to her grandmothers house where a lot her grandmothers friends asked to bring some of the Positive Pockets home for themselves and their friends. When Laura and her husband, Christopher, saw the success of the Positive Pocket, they had the name copyrighted. Rebecca said the people she met through YEA helped her create a website, write a business plan and offered other assistance in setting up the business. If it were not for YEA, I dont know where Rebecca might be, said her mother. Now, the 7th grader runs her own business, and has spoken about it at several schools, including Sunrise Park Elementary, which she attended. Her 8-year-old sister is a pupil there now. She said she plans to begin accepting donations that she will turn over to charity. Rebecca held a fundraiser with music and raffles on April 29. The anti-bullying businesswoman also met with Brett Loewenstern, the Spanish River High School student who finished in the top 24 last year on American Idol. During his stay on the popular national show, he talked about his experiences with bullying and wrote songs with anti-bullying themes. He loved them, she said. He took some and will share them with his friends. Rebecca is also working on an app for anti-bullying messages. She also plans to sell advertising on the back of the Positive Pocket cards. Laura Zerbo said her daughter is getting calls from hospitals and rehabilitations looking to spread her positive message among patients. She even got a call from a hospital in Massachusetts where a friend, Chad Kidd, is chaplain. He responded and thanked her for the help.West Boca Seventh Grader Turns Anti-Bullying Campaign into Successful BusinessBusinessThe Boca Raton Tribune Five Bookkeeping Tips for Small BusinessBy Palm Beach State College Small Business Development Center BOCA RATON -Eileen P.

Bob is known for his common sense perspective. He understands how to think and act during critical times. Few of todays active financial advisors have lived through the NYC Bankruptcy Crisis of 1975 or the Washington Public Power Supply System debacle of 1983. Bob believes both financial catastrophes have strong similarities to todays economic quagmire. When economic times and financial markets were tough, Bob was there and learned from those financial tragedies, first-hand. Advising clients for almost 40 years, Bob has a team of seasoned and disciplined professionals working aside him servicing retirees and soon-to-be retirees, for over eight decades, combined, by carefully assessing the personal needs and financial goals of their clients. I just received a seven-figure inheri tance from my late aunts estate. The inheritance is the largest sum of money that I have ever handled. I would like to make sure I have a good plan in place to manage this inheritance. What do you suggest? You are wise to be cautious and not give into the urge to spend and shrink your inheritance to nothing. A little planning will go a long way toward making the most of your money. In many cases, receiving a large sum of money carries a price tag in terms of taxes. Although income taxes generally are not due on inheri tances, there are exceptions. (e.g. for withdrawal from an inherited IRA). So the first thing you should do is find out what the tax consequences will be. Next, put together a sound, long-term strategy for investing and spending. Sit down with an experienced financial advisor and identify your needs and investment goals. uation? Since your wealth has increased substantially, you will also want to review your estate plan. You may have an opportunity to control estate taxes and you will want to make appropriate provisions for your family.1 Receiving a large sum of money can be thrilling, but it can also be overwhelming. Having a plan for handling the money can help ensure that wise financial decisions are made. Bobbin for Dollars and Sense is based on a hypothetical situation.

Both have retained their mental acuity and both are revered by our family members, especially by their grandchildren and great grand children. These feelings go both ways. This week, one of the ladies received an unexpected phone call in the middle of the afternoon that went somewhat like this: Granny, Im in trouble, said the voice on the phone. Billy, (name changed to protect the innocent) is that you? she replied, although no grandmother in our family had ever been called Granny by any grandchild. Its me and Im in trouble. Ive been arrested, I need your help, said the voice. I was in a car accident, and the other person is in the hospital. They say I was drinking, but I wasnt. What do you need? Five thousand to make bond. They would have taken a credit card, but I dont have one on me. Ill call your mother. Please, dont call anyone, Id be so embarrassed. Just give me your credit card number and Ill pay you back tomorrow. By that time it was clear to our mom that something was not quite right. Billy, the real one, was a totally responsible professional who has never been in any trouble and was on a business trip out of the country. Mom asked for a phone number, and said that she would try to get some money together. The voice said he would call back. Mom called me and a conclusion was immediately resolved that our Nonnie was the intended victim of a scam. The scammer never called back. The scammer probably continued down some list of senior citizens phone numbers that he had somehow collected off the Internet and before the day was over successfully completed his thievery. Just another day in paradise.Living According To Your ValuesEverything we do is influenced by our values. Even if you have never ac tually sat down and compiled a list of what is important to you, your actions in life are largely determined by the values you hold dear and important. Every time you make a decision, you are relying on your values to tell you what to do. Unfortunately, some of the values you operate by might be counterproductive to your success and serve as a hindrance to your sense of satisfaction and fulfillment in life. Many of the subconscious values we live by we didnt choose. They were imposed on us by parents, friends, peers, and the culture around you. For instance, studies have shown that today, television programming has become the foremost shaper of values in our society. As a result, if we are not careful, we could find ourselves acting according to incorrect information and values that do not stand up under pressure. Just as the set of the sail determines the direction of a sailing vessel, your values guide or even dictate the course for your life. If that is true, we must intentionally and often ask ourselves questions such as: In what direction are my values leading me? Are they going to deliver what I hope or expect, or will I eventually be disappointed? Here is another fact about values: They can cause us tremendous amounts of stress. Stress occurs when what we claim to believe and what we truly do believe do not line up. For instance: When we SAY, My family is important to me. But we are always too busy or too tired to enjoy them. When we SAY, I value my health. But we overwork, overeat or eat poorly, and rarely or never exercise. When we SAY, Im not materialistic. But we become so heavily in debt that we worry constantly about our personal finances. When two of your values conflict, thats called a dilemma. A study by a prominent research organization recently revealed that conflicting values are a leading cause of emotional tension among business and professional leaders. What, then, is the solution? 1.IDENTIFY WHAT IS REALLY IMPORTANT IN LIFE. We need to articulate a personal definition of success not someone elses definition, but your own. Remember this: Success is the feeling I get when I live out my values. It is not a destination. You can be successful at any stage of your life, based on your own personal values and goals. Begin by making a list of what you value most in life. Ask yourself, What is most important; what is going to last? ...We should choose to follow what is right. But first we must define what is good (Job 34:3-4). 2.BEGIN BY ELIMINATING THOSE THINGS THAT REALLY ARE NOT IMPORTANT. The culture around us, pressure from friends and peers, and other factors can tempt us to act counter to our best judgment. However, clearly understood values can serve as a helpful, reliable guide. Do not copy the behavior and customs of this world, but be a new and different person with a fresh newness in all you do and think. Then you will learn from your own experience how Gods ways really satisfy you (Romans 12:2). 2011, Purpose Driven Life. All rights reserved. Adapted from a column by Dr. Rick Warren, the author of numerous books, including the highly acclaimed, The PurposeDrive Life, which has been translated into many languages and sold throughout the world. It affirms the importance of having a carefully considered, clearly expressed purpose to guide everyday life. It has been named one of the 100 Christian books that changed the 20th Century.

The feelings around the program at this time last year was the complete opposite for the Blazers. Last April, head coach Clay Shiver inherited a Blazers football program that had fallen on hard times. Reeling from winless season and not having enough players to field a team for a spring game, Shiver went to work to put together a roster. By last fall, the Blazers had 14 players on the team. The fruits of their labor in 2011 produced a three win season. The three wins were small steps, but for Boca Raton Christian, they were the steps of improvement. This is a rebuild for this program, coach Shiver said. The program as far as numbers is increasing. When the numbers increases it gives us the opportunity to do a lot more for the kids. Entering this spring, Boca Raton Christian has better depth and cohesion as a team. The Blazers will have 19 players dressed for the spring jamboree. By this fall, Boca Raton Christian expects to have close to 25 players on the roster. With the small roster, the majority of players have to play both on offense and defense. One of those players is senior Caleb Hood. Along with playing linebacker, Hood is a dynamic running back for the Blazers. In 2011, Hood scored 12 touchdowns and nearly rushed for 700 yards in nine games. He is our standout running back, Shiver said. We are excited to see what will happen with him next season. Another two-way player is senior Heber Michel. Michel is versatile player who plays tight end, full back and linebacker. On defense, he really is kind of our lead guy. [He is] the captain of the defense, Shiver said. He is a big hitter and a big playmaker. His ability has not gone unnoticed as college programs Indiana, Florida Atlantic, FIU and smaller schools have shown interest in Michel. The spring jamboree will provide an opportunity for Boca Raton Christian to gauge how they matchup against a team that runs the spread offense like Northwest Christian. It gives us an opportunity to see how we match up and how we play against that type of offense, but also their type of athletes, Shiver said. Were excited to get on the field. Head Coach: Clay Shiver 2011 Record: (3-6 Independent) Spring jamboree: May 19 at Miami Northwest Christian versus Miami Northwest Christian and Princeton Christian School Caleb Hood (left) and Heber Michel (bottom right) Fleury Begins the Process of Turning Around Olympic HeightsBy: Malcolm Shields After being the defensive coordinator at Cardinal Newman for the past three sea sons, Kevin Fleury is back on the sidelines as a head coach for Olympic Heights in 2012. One of the first tasks for Fleury was to change the atmosphere that surrounded the program after a losing season in 2011. We talk about is accountability, Fleury said. Were making sure that these kids are accountable, whether its in the classroom or on the field. His formula for suc cess has worked before as Fleury led Palm Beach Garden to a state championship in 2005. With the departure of senior quarterback Matt Kelly, the Lions have had a close quarterback competition between Nick Brooks and Richard Thompson throughout the spring. In Olympic Heights spring game against Wellington High School, both quarterbacks will get significant playing time. Although both quarterbacks are talented, each brings a different skill set under center for the Lions. Richard has a bit more of an advantage as far as athleticism with Nick having more of an advantage as a thrower, Fleury said. We are pretty much looking at 1 and 1A right now. In the backfield, running back John Clerister will have other backs to help him carry the rushing load. He will be one of our guys with Wesley Innocent and Emilio Fernandez, Fleury said. Degaulle Sama will also get some carries for the Lions. Clerister is familiar with splitting carries. In 2011, Clerister spit carries with four other runners. He received the most carries with 99. On defense, Andy Bien-Amie and Walvenski Wally Aime will anchor the defensive line for the Lions. In the secondary, cornerback Gaetan Dolbrice and Sama have been solid throughout the spring. With its matchup against Wellington High School on May 30, there is one main goal the Lions want to accomplish. We got to pull a win out. Everything is about winning, Fleury said. Weve been practicing since May 1. We got to see where we are at. A lot of guys are going both ways. Were also facing an option team that is going to be tough. We got to be very discipline. Head Coach: Kevin Fleury (First sea son at Olympic Heights) 2011 Record: (3-7, 3-2 District 14-6A) Spring Game: May 30 at Wellington Community High School Saint Andrews Balanced Team Production Will be Paramount in 2012 By: Malcolm Shields As Saint Andrews wrapped up its spring practices, the Scots have a good balance throughout its roster that will provide production on both sides of the ball in 2012. Along with its upperclassmen, Saint Andrews will also rely on some of its underclassmen. Our juniors and seniors are an experienced group. We got a lot of young guys who played last year for us, McCartin said. We have a good nucleus of freshman and sophomores. One of the players that is apart of that young nucleus is quarterback/wide receiver Sean Downes. As a freshman, he started for the Scots first four games under center until an injury knocked him out of the lineup. Ive been feeling pretty good, Downs said about is progression during the spring. Im just trying to get better in all facets of my game. He is in a competition for the quarterback position with Sean Mooney. Mooney led the Scots in the final five games of the season in 2011. Im been doing pretty good, Mooney said. I know that I have a lot of work to do. I just want to keep working. Regardless of who gets the starting nod, both players will be contributors for the Scots in 2012. They are both neck-andneck for our starting job, McCartin said. Its as close a race as you can get. With the departure of key seniors from last season, the Scots will rely on young core of players at the skill positions to make up for the lost production. One of those players is Jake Bargas. Last season Bargas was one of Saint Andrews top wide receivers as he ranked in the top five of all the major receiver categories for the Scots. On defense, the Scots are led by linebacker Jesse Kolinac Our defense is going to fly around a lot this year and make plays, Kolinac said. We are really aggressive and fast. The defensive line is also made strides during the spring. Our D-line has done a great job this spring. We have got a lot of young guys playing, McCartin said. They seem to be handling it pretty well. David Rowe has been the leader on both the offensive line and a young defensive line for the Scots. We got a lot bigger, stronger and we are faster this year, Rowe said. Defense, we are going to be great. For the upcoming spring game against Forest Hill, the Scots will be prepared to face the Falcons 3-4 scheme. We just have to take care of the [defensive] ends and get up to the middle linebacker, make hole for our running backs and give time for our quarterback, said Rowe.

Let them know you saw their Ads in the Boca Tribune.By: Chad Beattie Coral Springs, Fla. Lynn Universitys womens golf team rose back to national prominence this season and head coach Danny Randolph and Irene Cavlo were a part of that. Randolph was honored as National Golf Coaches Association South Region Coach of the Year while Calvo garnered All-America Honorable Mention recognition. Under the direction of first-year head coach Danny Randolph, the Fighting Knights earned a top-five finish in nine of the 10 events in which they competed. The SSC Coach of the Years squad won team titles at the Flagler Fall Slam, Kiawah Island Intercollegiate and the EmbryRiddle Invitational, marking the first time in five years Lynn has won three tourna ments in a season. The Knights finished second at the SSC Championship, just one stroke behind champion Nova Southeastern. Lynn earned a ranking as high as No. 3 and made its 11th NCAA Tournament appearance. Calvo becomes the first All-America selection for LU in four years. A SSC First Team pick, she led the Fighting Knights, and was fifth in the SSC, with a 76.72 stroke average. The Madrid, Spain, product logged six top-10 finishes and five top-five finishes along with winning the Barry-Florida Tech-Lynn tri-match. Calvo also tied for fourth at the SSC Championship to earn All-Tournament honors.SPORTS East/West Boca Raton, FL Why The Miami Heat Should Worry as They Go Deeper in the PlayoffsBy: Steve Rawnsley After riding the historic game four performances by LeBron and Wade in the game four win, the Heat now have home court advantage, and have the momentum heading into what is now a best of three series against the Pacers. On the surface, everything is all good heading into game five. However, there are some major concerns for the Heat heading into the rest of the series, and beyond. The biggest concern is the same concern that has been there since they formed their trio. That problem is the supporting cast. As great as Wade and LeBron are, they cannot win this series by themselves. The Heats supporting cast must play better than they have been playing. Game one was tied going into the fourth quarter. Joel Anthony made a layup a minute into the fourth, and then made one free throw with about a minute left after a loose ball foul. Outside of those two events, nobody on the Heat scored other than LeBron and Wade in the fourth quarter. In game four, it was the same story, only more extreme. This time Haslem made two free throws with 2:50 left in the second quarter. Only Wade and LeBron scored for the next thirteen minutes before Haslem again hit two free throws with 1:30 left in the third quarter. Then nobody on the Heat scored other than LeBron and Wade, until Haslem made a jumper with 5:56 to go in the fourth. For about twenty one minutes, the Heats supporting cast had a total of two points. Nobody on the Heat scored other than Haslem, LeBron, and Wade for the final thirty minutes. For the most part, in the two wins, LeBron and Wade have had to win it by themselves. In game two, outside of LeBron and Wade, the rest of the team had twenty-three points on nine of thirty-four shooting. Ma rio Chalmers had a great game three, but that was in a blow out, so you can take that with a grain of salt. So far Shane Battier is shooting 10.5% this series. He shot under 40% for the year also, and he is starting in place of Bosh, as they move LeBron to the four. Mike Miller is not much better at 33%, and only averaging 2.5 points per game. These are the guys that the Heat decided to use the mid-level exception on to surround their big trio. They simply have to play better. LeBrons game four performances was simply historic. According to the Ellias Sports Bureau nobody has gone for at least 40 points, 18 rebounds, and 9 assists in a playoff game since Elgin Baylor in 1961. Not to be outdone by LeBron, Wade made eleven straight field goals starting late in the second quarter and ending early in the fourth. As great as these guys are, they cannot play like they did in game four. It is just not sustainable. LeBron left Cleveland because he wanted help, but this looks like Cleveland 2.0 right now. The other thing to be concerned about is the Pacers just gave game four away. The Pacers missed a lot of open shots in the first quarter. They went 3-11 from downtown and they were all open shots. They Pacers were sixth in the league in three point shooting during the season. The Heat dodged a huge bullet. The Pacers tried outshoot the Heat to the brink of elimination, instead of going to their strength, post play. Roy Hibbert has been the best player for the Pacers in the series. The fact that the Heat have used a different starting center in each game tells you how much they are hurting in the post, and this is where the Pacers have a huge advantage over Miami. However, in game four Hibbert only got nine field goal attempts in thirty-two minutes. Meanwhile, Leandro Barbosa got ten field goal attempts in nineteen minutes. The Heat did not really double Hibbert all that much either. David West was also silent, due to the fact that the Pacers fell in love with the outside shot. They did not feed him enough, especially with Battier guarding him. He only got eight field goal attempts in the game. Granger had more three point attempts then West had field goal attempts. This is a very easy fix. The Pacers played into the Heats hands, and it still took unsustainable performances by LeBron and Wade to tie up the series.

West Boca Raton, Spanish River Limits Gulliver Preps Running Game in JamboreeBy: Malcolm Shields On a wet and muddy field at West Boca Raton on May 18, the Bulls faced a Miami Gulliver Prep team that had multiple Division I prospects. One of those prospects is senior running back Bo Ellis. In 2011, Ellis rushed for over 1,200 yards and nine touchdowns for the Raiders. Although Gulliver Prep was a tough test for the Bulls to conclude its spring football season, West Boca Ratons defense was up to the challenge as they held Ellis in check for most of the scrimmage. The Bulls ended its matchup with Gulliver Prep in a 0-0 tie. We stopped a real good running back, West Boca Raton coach Willie Dodaro said. We are real pleased about that. Offensively, the Bulls had its ups and downs. The Bulls did connect on 44-yard pass play in the final minutes of the game by quarterback Zach Miner to get West Boca Raton in field goal range. With no time out remaining in the final seconds of the game, West Boca Raton was unable to get its field goal unit on the field to attempt a game-winning field goal. It was the first time that we ran that offense, Dodaro said. We moved the ball in certain keys situations and we are seeing some things are lacking. The backside blocking wasnt too good, but that is why we have the spring game for. Spanish River 0, Gulliver Prep 0 The Sharks also had an opportunity to test themselves against Gulliver Preps top players. Although they were able to keep the Raiders out of the end zone, Spanish River committed multiple penalties and missed assignments on both sides of the ball. Defensively, I thought the effort was good, but with any young team, kids were not lined up in the right place, Spanish River coach Rod Payne said. I was happy with the effort, but we have a lot of things to go over. One of the bright spots in the game for Spanish River on defense was Tyler Cousino. He intercepted a Gulliver Prep pass and returned it inside the Raiders red zone in the first quarter. West Boca Raton 3, Spanish River 0 In a matchup between rivals in District 137A, neither side played their starters long as Spanish River played some of its starters in the first couple of possessions and West Boca Raton had most of its reserves on the field against the Sharks from the beginning of the scrimmage. The only points in the game came on a 28-yard field goal by Mike Jaffee with 5:56 remaining in the first quarter.
