By: Gina Onori I have the coolest desk do you wanna know why? said dance studio owner Jean Marc Casanave as he lowers his desk automatically. We dont mess around at Fred Astaire baby. Fred Astaire dance studio started in 1947 and was founded by Fred Astaire and Charles Lawrence Casanave, Jean Marc Casanaves grandfather. The two were business partners who founded a chain together for the first time. The concept of a franchise was a business that sprung from the dance studios. Before McDonalds and Burger King signs illuminated the streets of our nation, people paid percentages to use the name Fred Astaire. Professional dancer, choreographer, singer and ac tor Fred Astaire personally trained all of the teachers at the dance studio.The Boca Raton Tribune for news 24/7 go to bocaratontribune.com YOUR CLOSEST NEIGHBOR.Nearly 400,000 readers!

The final presidential debate for the 2012 election cycle will take place on the campus of Lynn University on Oct. 22 between President Barack Obama and former Governor of Massachusetts Mitt Romney. Once the University was selected as the site for the debate, the process of preparing the campus and the surrounding area for the event went into motion. We have been working in coordination with the Commission on Presidential Debates,said Senior Vice-President of Administration at Lynn University Greg Malfitano. We have weekly conference calls with the Commission. The University has also been in contact with fellow 2012 presidential debate schools the University of Denver and Hofstra University as well as the University of Mississippi and the University of Miami, which held presidential debates in 2008 and 2004 respectively. We reached out to see what worked and what didnt work, said Director of Public Relations at Lynn University Joshua Glanzer. On campus, there has been ongoing construction to improve facilities to accommodate spectators and the numerous media outlets that will be on the Boca Raton campus. It has been a tremendous organizational challenge, said Chief of Staff at Lynn University Jason Walton. It has animated life on campus. The construction to the main entrance is expected to be completed by the beginning of the fall semester. With the influx of national and international media, the University has begun the process making the Keith C. & Elaine Johnson Wold Performing Arts Center more media friendly. We are creating a debate city within our city, Malfita no said.

The gustatory hit returned for its third season the week of June 4. The Boca doc tor and amateur chef joined about 100 other contestants to display their culinary acumen. He preparing Crme Brule French Toast, a dish he said is a particular favorite of his eldest son. Contestants were judged by award-winning chef Gordon Ramsay, restaurateur Joe Bastianich and acclaimed chef Graham Elliot. The plastic surgeon said the show, taped in Los Angeles, was truly an experience not to be forgotten. Cooking for me is a lot like plastic surgery, he said. They both involve creativity and precision. Dr. Rosenthal went on to say he could be seen several times during the first two shows on Monday and Tuesday, June 4-5. But when the number of finalists was pared down to 36 during the second week, he was eliminated. Thank you, everyone, for supporting me in my MasterChef run, the doctor said after his TV cooking tenure ended. It was a memorable and fun experience. I met so many wonderful people and I am thankful that my cooking has become both more adventurous and refined due to my time in Los Angeles and learning from some amazing chefs. You dont see everything or taste or smell the food at home, but many of these contestants have incredible skills and passion for food and cooking. Dr. Rosenthal also thanked my patients and staff who encouraged this endeavor. I am most grateful for your trust and your support. I am most fortunate that I was given the skills and opportunity in life to be a physician and plastic surgeon, a calling I love and believe in. Earlier this week, the remaining 36 contestants were put to the ultimate test in an intense ground beef challenge. By the end of that episode, those who impressed the judges earned a spot in the Top 18. Only those who put their best dish forward will move one step at a time closer to becoming a culinary master. Before beginning his medical practice in Boca Raton, Dr. Rosenthal trained at Duke University, Tulane University and the University of Miami. He also studied at the world-renowned University of Michigan and completed a two-year fellowship in Craniofacial Research. During this fellowship, Dr. Rosenthals main focus was the difficult aspects of pediatric facial reconstruction, and he even used this work to create a device that helps prevent positional head deformities in children. The personalized patient care he consistently demonstrates and the quality of work delivered has led to local and national rec ognition from the following media outlets: ABC, NBS, PBS, CBS, Sun Sentinel, Palm Beach Post and Boca Raton News.Community News Cpl Burt Richards Recognized by the School District of Palm Beach CountyBy: Guadalupe Monarrez On Wednesday June 20th, Corporal Burt Richards was recognized for his effort to instruct students in Palm Beach County schools about the importance of war education. The School Board meeting, which took place at the Palm Beach School District headquarters in West Palm Beach, distinguished Richards with the recognition for his Honoring Those Who Served educational program. The program, Honoring Those Who Served, features war veterans reminiscing about their war experiences with students. Recently, Cpl Richards alongside two other war veterans, Sergeant Tom DeCicco and Master Sergeant Michael Kelsey, hosted the program at Boca Raton Middle School in remembrance of Memorial Day. Cpl Burt Richards, who founded the Veterans Speakers Forum of Palm Beach County, is responsible for creating a campaign to approach the Palm Beach School District about closing schools on Veterans Day. He was suc cessful and November 11th, 2011 became the first Veterans Day that Palm Beach County schools were closed for students. Currently, Cpl Richards hopes to close schools for teachers as well. In an effort to have schools closed, Cpl Richards hopes students will take the day to truly honor those who have served. It is important for Palm Beach students to be educated on war history and about those service men and women who kept them safe and free, said Richards, and to have an opportunity of visiting a Veterans event on the special day of November 11th. With the founding of the Veterans Speakers Forum, Cpl Richards was able to prove to educators the need for military service personnel to speak with all students regardless of race, creed, or color. To contact Cpl Burt Richards for his educational programs, call (561)734-7263 or at email@example.com. Professor Dr. James Downey at Lynn University, the debate will provide three levels of impact to the community. The first impact is economic. What we like to think is that this event will be like a Super Bowl. Dr. Downey expects that people will congregate either at home or at local establishments to view the debate. The legacy impact of the debate will be measured by a survey of American conducted by a firm for the University 24 to 48 hours after the debate. What we like to find out is what is the effect that an event like this would have on people coming back to visit Lynn University, Dr. Downey said. The third element is publicity value. With the large number of journalist in the area, the community and University will gain exposure by the media leading up to the debate. The University has been in partnership with the city and the county in preparation for the debate. The City of Boca Raton has been a huge supporter, Walton said. The county has equaled the city with involvement. Hospitality and Tourism Industry to Benefit The impact of such of an event runs deeper than the national political repercussions that will occur from the results of the debate. The hospitality and tourism industry is due to benefit the most from the debate as thousands are anticipated to visit Boca Raton over a two week period before the debate. There is going to be tremendous response for people wanting to be here, said General Manager of the Boca Raton Bridge Hotel Greg Kaylor. We are looking for some real activity in the area. We begin to pick up for the season late October so we will begin to see more activity. Many hotels in the area have already set room rates leading up to the debate. According to Kaylor, his hotel has set their prices for rooms for the weekend leading up to the debate. Other local hotels have had rooms already booked leading up to that weekend that has been reserved by media outlets. Restaurants in the area are also in line for increased business leading up to the debate. We have two fairly iconic restaurants in Palm Beach County. Hopefully we get some additional exposure, said Kaylor, whose hotel is also associated with Water Colors Restaurant and Bar and Carmens Restaurant. We hope the exposure of the restaurants and the reputation of the restaurants will help to drive some of the room nights and good participation of the guests are staying and frequenting our restaurants. The debate will provide the opportunity for the region to be displayed to the rest of the nation in primetime. We want to see the area showcased in a positive light with tourism, Walton said.

Florida Blue is your Blue Cross-Blue Shield plan, said Penny S. Shaffer, market president for South Floridas Florida Blue segment. We are a not-for-profit company. We listen to our stakeholders and not shareholders. There is no other Blue Cross-Blue Shield in Florida. The new Florida Blue will offer affordable products, she said. We move from an insurance company to a health solutions company. Customers can actually go to a store and purchase health insurance, she said, at 10 new centers that will soon total 11. In the area, they are located on Congress Avenue in Boynton Beach and the Sawgrass Mills Mall. This is a very personalized approach to the way we use healthcare. It is a store, open to the community. We need to shop for healthcare the way we do for a car or an electronic device. Chamber President Troy McLellan said he had gone to a Florida Blue store and received a biometric screening. The numbers were pretty good, he said with a smile.

By Oleda Baker It didnt take Tom Cleaver long to catch this beautiful six pound, largemouth, bass after a couple of casts, as well as hooking a few others shortly thereafter. The camera was there and did not miss a thing! The lakes at Stonebridge are some of the most beautiful waters and surroundings in this part of Florida. They are also abundant with many species, such as Bass, Bluegill, Sunfish and Black Crappie. Tom said. In real life Tom has been Director of Golf at the prestigious Stonebridge Golf and Country club in Boca Raton for the past 10 years. As such, hes given countless golf lessons, while at the same time keeping up his own golfing skills. In 2010, he qualified for the US Senior open, A Champions Tour major tournament at Sahalee Country club, near Seattle. But Tom has always had a serious passion for fishing, with a particular love of flyfishing. He even designs, creates and makes his own flies which is an art all of its own. We found our Oleda Baker, Boca Raton Tribunes own Beauty Health Columnist, along with a few other Stonebridge members, fishing with Tom. In fact Tom was giving Oleda (who has been fly-fishing for 35 years) a lesson to improve her casting. For a moment I thought I was taking a golf lesson which I really need, said Oleda with a smile. Cleaver said three special lakes were chosen at Stonebridge so any member and guest could fish whenever they please, yet be sensitive not to interfere with their golfing friends. It all works together very well...we have the best of all worlds, Tom said as he made another cast into the lake. Yes, he caught even another fish!

Naming contest winner Matthew DeFrain and his friend, ShadowLynn Announces Gift to Help Build Stadium for Fighting Knights SoccerBOCA RATON -Lynn Universitys soccer team will soon have a stadium worthy of their seven national championships thanks to the generosity of Robert (Bobby) Campbell of Boca Raton who provided the school with a gift of $1.2 million for construction of the new stadium. The Fighting Knights soccer program has garnered a total of seven national championships for the mens and womens teams. Most recently, in 2011, the mens team competed in the NCAA National Championship. This stadium also allows Lynn to expand the athletic offerings to include la crosse. Campbells gift adds to the $1.2 million already donated, including an anonymous gift of $1 million. The university continues to raise funds for this project, which is expected to cost $2.6 million. I am very involved in the Boca Ra ton community and this project is an exciting one for both me and for the community, said Campbell. I love sports and thought this would be a good opportunity to help the university become better known nationally and internationally for a strong and important sport such as soccer. I feel proud to be a part of this project. As a young man working for Kinney Shoes, Campbell had a vision to become an entrepreneur and start his own business. Now his company, BBC International, with corporate headquarters in Boca Raton, is one of the leading childrens and athletic footwear design and sourcing companies in the world. Campbell serves on the boards of the Boca Raton Historical Society, the ARC of Palm Beach County and Boca Raton Regional Hospital Foundation. He is past president and currently serves on the executive board of the Two Ten Footwear Foundation, the American Heart Associa tion and on the presidents council for Sloan Kettering. In May he was awarded the Monsignor John. T.

In 2011, he was honored for his humanitarian efforts by Ace, an organiza tion that supports the homeless. Bobby Campbell stadium will be a game changer for our championship athletics program at Lynn, Lynn University President Kevin M. Ross said. With 19 na tional championships, weve always had extremely accomplished student-athletes and dedicated coaches and staff.

It is a joint press release by all Florida Bishops, including the Diocese of Palm Beachs Bishop Gerald Barbarito, on the Fortnight for Freedom which begins this week. The Fortnight for Freedom has been called by all U.S. Bishops as a two-week time period of prayer, study and reflection on our first most cherished freedom Freedom of Religion. All Catholic Churches and (arch)dioceses across the U.S. will be participating. The Fortnight begins on Thursday, June 21, and runs through July 4. In the Diocese of Palm Beach, on June 21 and July 4, church bells will ring at noon in honor of our religious freedom. During the fortnight, there are special Masses and events planned at all of our 53 parishes and missions within the five-county area of our diocese (Palm Beach, Martin, St. Lucie, Indian River and Okeechobee). A schedule of events is listed on the diocesan website. Go to HYPERLINK http://www. diocesepb.org/ \t _blank www.diocesepb.org and click on the Fortnight for Freedom image. Save the Date: There will be a Diocese of Palm Beach Patriotic Concert on July 2. Sincerely, Dianne Laubert Director of Communications Diocese of Palm Beach Dear Media Friends: The Palm Beach Book Store will sponsor a book signing with U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio Saturday, June 30 at 10 a.m. at First Baptist Church of West Palm Beach, 1101 South Flagler Drive., West Palm Beach. Senator Rubio will sign his memoir, An American Son. The book will be available in English and Spanish. Books must be purchased at the signing at First Baptist Church. Sincerely, Gregory Langowski My wife and I drove past the Caldwell Theatre at 7901 North Federal Highway in Boca Raton not too long ago and were horrified at the emptiness we saw. Like most local fans of live theatre, we have been following with great interest the progress or lack of same by the Caldwell in its efforts to cover a debt on the Count de Hoernle Building which houses Bocas premiere acting troupe. That red ink has basically shut down the production facility until it comes up with the cash. As we drove by, I thought I saw a For Lease sign out front. And that seems to be the case. The court-appointed overseer of the bankrupt property is trying to lease it. We keep looking for a positive light at the end of this tunnel. If you dont already know it, two theater companies have joined forces to save the failing Caldwell. EntrActe Theatrix and the Palm Beach Principal Players are co-producing Jesus Christ Superstar at the Caldwell for a 10-performance run July 5-15. Money raised will be used to put the theatrical venue back on track. If there ever was a must-see, this show is it. When I learned of the Caldwells financial troubles, I hearkened back to 2001 the year I became a news reporter in Boca Raton and I recalled how several cultural centers in Boca shut down that year Jan McArts Dinner Theater, the Boca Pops and the International Museum of Cartoon Art. It seemed like a dark cloud had formed over the citys cultural community. I thought of Charlie Brown, sadly walking around with a black cloud over his head. Now, years later, the Caldwell may meet the same fate. Stuff like this cant happen again. My wife and I have been fans of the Caldwell since we arrived, and have always been major theater goers. I remember writing my first theater review in 1984, and how it led to a close friendship with an actor/producer in Rhode Island, Dave Jepson. He operated a dinner theater in Pawtucket, right next door to my office. Over the years, I attended many shows with my wife or my mother. We found live theater such a wonderful form of entertainment. Dave has since moved out of Pawtucket and relocated to Westerly, on the far west side of the state, where he and his wife still produce shows, but the dinner aspect which was never a big moneymaker is gone. It seems that live theater is undergoing changes all over the nation. In Boca, the Caldwell always seemed to enjoy a special position. Certainly, there are many theater companies in the city and the area and all are very good. But the Caldwell seemed to lead the pack. It attracted all types of people. The Countess Henrietta de Hoernle, who sat in a designated seat at Caldwell, put up $1 million to pay for construc tion of the building that was named after her late husband. Madelyn Savarick, another cultural arts maven, donated money and her name adorns the stage. Dozens of other supporters could be added to the list. The production schedule for Jesus Christ Superstar is: + Thursday, July 5 8 p.m. + Friday, July 6 8 p.m. + Saturday, July 7 2 & 8 p.m. + Sunday, July 8 3 p.m. + Thursday, July 12 8 p.m. + Friday, July 13 8 p.m. + Saturday, July 14 2 & 8 p.m. + Sunday, July 15 3 p.m. Tickets are $25 for reserved seating, $15 for groups and children under 12, and $10 student rush (with ID) at the door on day of show.

Just think of natural disasters, political turmoil, economic instability, moral decline, and spiritual confusion, just to name a few aspects of the problem, which perhaps are the most noticeable to many! These, and other fac tors, seem to abound in recent seasons, adversely affecting large multitudes in diverse quarters. Endless wars, new conflicts, and additional rumors of war also continue to decimate the population of many na tions. An entire region of the world is currently engulfed in confusion, conflicts, and bloodshed, the end of which is not in sight, for no one can safely imagine or ascertain if a conclusion is humanly possible. Blatant robberies and assassinations in cities, and now even in the high seas, are becoming more and more common. Crimes against humanity which earlier occurred in a much lesser scale, have now reached unprecedented, new levels of acceleration due to uncharacteristic, unseasonable, unmanageable, blatant greed! Previously well-understood moral issues, which facilitated blessing and prosperity to flow into so many persons lives, now beg for alternate definitions and new connota tions which are causing the withdrawal of divine favors to several who couldve remained their regular, perpetual beneficiaries, both individuals, families, and nations. Major earthquakes, devastating tornadoes, powerful blizzards, mighty floods, gigantic mud-slides, and other heretofore natural disasters not endured by many, are now consistently claiming the lives of countless individuals, while maiming others, in most diverse locations and regions of the planet. Those who once possessed something, and often left with nothing! Agricultural sowing, food crops and production, are being unfavorably devastated in many lands on account of sudden, unsuspected climate changes and other adverse factors and conditions in several regions of the globe. All this, and much more, may be viewed as signs of the times; its another possible divine warning to those willing to recognize that God remains Sovereign over all creation, and continues to superintend over the affairs of men and nations. He shall fulfill all that His Word affirms concerning His creation and His purposes for it! All humans better beware! his education in four of them.

Following Jims remarks, Mary Csar, executive director, presented a 40-Year Retrospective of the Historical Society, which outlined the early years, the restorations of Town Hall, Depot and train cars, preservation advocacy as well as educational programs over the years.

COMMUNITY NEWS East/West Boca Raton, FL BOCA RATON -The Boca Raton Historical Society & Museum and the Boca Raton Pioneer Club are joining forc es with the Delray Beach Historical Society in a project to preserve and make ac cessible back issues of the Delray Beach News. In 2004, the BRHS&M and the Pioneer Club worked together to digitize the Boca Raton News and the Pelican, Boca Ratons hometown papers dating back to the late 1940s. But much of Boca Ratons historic people, places, and events are captured in the pages of Delray Beachs hometown paper, the Delray Beach News. The News began publication in 1923 and ended in 1986. Today the Delray Beach Historical Society maintains a collection of microfiche, microfilm, and original copies of the DBN. The society has undertaken the digitization of the paper. However, much of the paper is currently not text searchable or OCR (optical character recognition). This severely limits access to the paper. Together the three agencies hope to make all of the Delray Beach News text searchable. The Boca Raton Pioneer Club recently gave the BRHS&Ms Delray Newspaper Fund a donation of $2000. This money will be applied to the DBN text searchable project. Archivist Dottie Patterson of the Delray Beach Historical Society hopes that this amount will fund the searchability of the earliest years of the Delray Beach News, 1923-1928. These are among the most interesting years of the paper since they document the rise and fall of the Florida land boom, when Addison Mizner put the little town of Boca Raton on the map and Delray Beach grew into a resort destination. As archivist of the Delray Beach Historical Society I greatly appreciate the help of the Pioneer Club and the BRHS, Dottie said. Having more of the collec tion searchable will be a wonderful resource for all researchers of local history. see pics on pg.B9 Things to Do at Daggerwing in JulyBOCA RATON -Daggerwing Na ture Center is operated by the Palm Beach County Parks and Recreation Department and is located in South County RegionalPark at 11200 Park Access Road, off Cain Boulevard between Glades Road and Yama to Road, in western Boca Raton.

11 Edition 103 for news 24/7 go to bocaratontribune.com June 21, 2012 through June 27, 2012www.bocaratontribune.com By Dale M. King BOCA RATON The positions of Palm Beach County Commissioner in Districts 1, 3 and 5 will be decided in Novembers election. But two names seen on the ballot every four years for the past two or more decades in Districts 1 and 5 wont be there in 2012. District 5 Commissioner and powerhouse Democrat from West Boca, Burt Aaronson, will complete his 20-year tenure when his term is over later this year. The same for District 1s Karen Marcus, who has served about 27 years. A Supreme Court ruling forced the pair to accept term limits and leave the countys governing panel. In the meantime, three Democrats will face each other in the Aug. 14 primary for the District 5 seat: Mary Louise Berger, Steven H. Meyer and Rick Mark Neuhoff. The winner will face Republican Paul Tocker in the November balloting. In Marcus district, three Republicans are in the running Daniel Amero, Harry Goboian and Hal Robert Valeche. GOP hopeful Albert Kay has withdrawn. The top vote getter in the primary will face Democrat David Levy in November. The redrawing of district lines throughout the state this year has created a number of new contests. The battle of two incumbents for a single state Senate seat is probably the one to watch. Former District 25 Republican incumbent Ellyn Bogdanoff and former District 30 Democratic office holder Maria Sachs will butt heads in hopes of nailing the new Senate 34 seat in November. This assumes that newcomer Michael Lameyer, also a Republican, doesnt knock off Bogdanoff in the primary. U.S. Rep. Allen West moved from District 22 to District 18 to seek a second term on the hill. That opened the door to former state Rep. and House Majority Leader Adam Hasner to switch from a U.S. Senate run to a bid for the congressional seat in 22. West is being challenged by Patrick Murphy in 18, and Hasner can wait until November to face the winner of the August Democratic primary between Lois Frankel and Kristin Jacobs. Supervisor of Elections Susan Bucher is being challenged by three in this nonpartisan race Delray Beach Mayor Nelson S. Woodie McDuffie, Maxo Marc and Caneste Succe. Former state Rep. Kevin Rader, who lost a 2010 race for Florida Senate, was running for a new Palm Beach County state Senate seat. But at the last minute, he bowed out of that contest to challenge state Rep. Steve Perman in District 81, the former District 78. The two Democrats battle in the August primary, with the winner taking on Republican James Ryan OHara. The following candidates have also qualified for political office this year: State Representative, District 82 Carl J. Domino, REP Beverly Joy Hires, WRI MaryLynn Magar, REP Jonathan W.

As a U.S. Army veteran, he received his Bachelor of Arts degree from Florida Atlantic University and a Masters Degree in Public Administration from John Jay College, City University of New York and he was a graduate of the FBI National Academy and the U.S. Secret Service School. In 1968, Chief McCutcheon was one of nine officers chosen nationwide to study law enforcement for a year as a fellow of the U.S. Department of Justice under the Law Enforcement Act. Sheriff McCutcheon began his career as a patrol officer at the Delray Beach Police Department from 1954 1955. He then went on to work as a deputy constable in Palm Beach County from 1955 1956. In October 1956, Sheriff McCutcheon continued his career in law enforcement at the Boca Raton Police Department. He served as a detective, detective sergeant, lieutenant and assistant chief before becoming chief in 1970, the citys fifth police chief. As chief, Sheriff McCutcheon developed and shaped a police culture defined by progressive thinking and innovation. He reorganized the department to be more efficient and effective. He fought for competitive wages and benefits and was a standard bearer for education in policing. Sheriff McCutcheon was a stalwart supporter of the Police Athletic League and their annual golf tournament bears his name. He served as chief until 1980. Once his duties as chief were satisfied, he joined the Palm Beach County Sheriffs Office as the undersheriff for Sheriff Richard Wille. In February 1995, Governor Lawton Chiles appointed him to sheriff of Palm Beach County following Sheriff Willes retirement. Sheriff McCutcheon served as Sheriff of Palm Beach County until he retired on December 31, 1996. Sheriff McCutcheon was adjunct professor in the Criminal Justice Departments of the Palm Beach Community College and Florida Atlantic University. He was the past president of the Palm Beach County Police Chiefs Association and chairman of the Criminal Justice Advisory Committee at the Palm Beach Community College. He served as the vice president of Florida Atlantic University Alumni Association. He was also a member of Cities in Schools and American Society of Public Administration.

This non-profit was created by long-time Boca Raton resident Catherine AbbottHorowitz to raise awareness and research funds for Batten disease, an always-fatal neurodegenerative condition that afflicts thousands of people, including Horowitz. The evening will showcase Indi-Chics sophisticated signature styles and will feature complimentary wine and lite bites from Lemon Grass. Like most people, we had never heard of Batten disease, said Michelle Jaffe. But when Catherine told us her story and how people afflicted with other diseases such as Alzheimers, Parkinsons and MS will all benefit from research done on Batten disease, we knew we wanted to help. I so appreciate the Jaffes coordinating this event for me, said Catherine. I was diagnosed with Batten disease as an adult; however, I soon learned that it is the number one neurodegenerative disease in children. And because it is hereditary, my two sons have a 50 percent chance of developing this disease. Dealing with our prog noses is not easy, but I wanted to focus on doing something positive, not only for us, but for the thousands and thousands of others who also have this disease. Abbott-Horowitz founded Catherines Hope for a Cure to raise funds for research doctors at Massachusetts General/ Harvard and in London, the only two facilities in the world doing advanced research on the disease. Through her efforts she has raised over $120,000 of desperately needed research money, and 100 percent of all the money she raises goes to the doctors. The one thing we noticed about Catherine is that she is focused on living life to the fullest and we want to celebrate that at our event, said Michelle. Our fashions are about embracing an individual look. We have created an essential lifestyle brand for the jet-set fashionista, fea turing a sophisticated mix of distinctive styles for day, night, going-out, resort and aprs-yoga. Since opening in Royal Palm Place, the boutique has gained an avid following who adore their casual to dressy clothing, handbags, jewelry and shoes that you wont find at any other retailers or clothing boutiques. Serving discriminating customers who seek quality constructed fashions and accessories that defy trends, Indi-Chic is known for designer fashions in luxurious fabrics including pima cotton, cashmere, handmade lace, velvets and silks.

22 Edition 103 June 21, 2012 through June 27, 2012www.bocaratontribune.com By: Gina Onori I have the coolest desk do you wanna know why? said dance studio owner Jean Marc Casanave as he lowers his desk automatically. We dont mess around at Fred Astaire baby. Fred Astaire dance studio started in 1947 and was founded by Fred Astaire and Charles Lawrence Casanave, Jean Marc Casanaves grandfather. The two were business partners who founded a chain together for the first time. The concept of a franchise was a business that sprung from the dance studios. Before McDonalds and Burger King signs illuminated the streets of our nation, people paid percentages to use the name Fred Astaire. Professional dancer, choreographer, singer and actor Fred Astaire personally trained all of the teachers at the dance studio. That would be like the equivalent of George Clooney or Jennifer Lopez opening up and personally teaching people how to dance, said Casanave in his black pinstripe suit and silk purple tie.At the time it was beyond believable. Decades later Jean Marc Casanave still keeps the passion alive at the top third dance studio in the nation. Growing up surrounded by dance studios, Casanave cant help but have a passion for dance. Dancing is walking to music, said Casanave. But to express yourself through music and movement is really awesome and to be able to have a job where you come in every day and you have music and youre dancing and moving is enjoyable. Fred Astaire teaches numerous forms of dancing from the fox trot, swing, cha cha, salsa, samba, mamba, merengue, rumba, Paso doable, quick step, west coast, swing, hustle, to the east coast the list goes on and on. Fred Astaire teaches many styles of dancing. Lesson packages differ depending on how many classes you are interested in. Unlimited group classes are priced at $135 a month. We like to be the adult Disney World, said Casanave with a wide charming smile. We want people to get an escape from their everyday life and world. Fred Astaire is where you can leave everything behind, dance and have a phenomenal experience. However, one cannot simply walk into Fred Astaire expecting to walk out a pro in one lesson. You get out of it what you put into it, said Casanave. Teachers first teach students the language of dancing so that students understand the lingo of dance. Then they are taught steps and movements. Last, but not least, comes the dancing. You need to learn about poise, posture, balance rhythm, timing, where your hands and feet go, etc. said Casanave. Theres basic elements of dance, but we must understand the vernacular and ba sics first. Are you ready for your lesson? asked Casanave through his razor thin glasses. The room was crowded with people of various ages, and Casanave had taught me dance vernacular, simple moves, and finally the fox trot. Fred Astaire is the most renowned dance studio in South Florida, having a prominent history, knowledge and respect for the dance industry.MUNICIPAL East/West Boca Raton, FL Just DanceMunicipal NewsBurglary Suspect Arrested for Second Time in Three WeeksBoca Raton, FL Just before 11:00 am Wednesday, June 6, 2012, Boca Ra ton Police responded to a residence at 2724 NW 30th Street. The caller said a blue convertible Mustang pulled into her driveway and the passenger knocked on the door asking for Ms. Anderson. When the resident told the person there was no one there by that name, the suspect left. About an hour later, while patrolling the area, a member of the Boca Raton Police Tactical Team noticed a blue Mustang matching the description of the suspicious vehicle reported earlier. A check of the license plate revealed that the car was rented, and the officer noticed the windows were tinted very dark. The Mustang turned left and headed north on Congress Ave, before making a u-turn to head back to Yamato Rd. Officers pulled over the vehicle on Yamato Rd. The two occupants gave conflicting stories; one said they were heading to the mall, while the other said they were just rolling around. A search of the Mustang turned up small quantities of marijuana, burglary tools, and a pillow case of stolen jewelry from a home burglary in another jurisdiction. The driver, Adrian Brown, was driving with a suspended drivers license and was arrested by the Boca Raton Police Department on May 15th for Loitering & Prowling. On that date, Brown was stopped in a different rental vehicle in the same neighborhood. Brown and his passenger, Keith Scott, were both charged with Loitering & Prowling, Possession of Burglary Tools, Possession of Marijuana and Drug Paraphernalia, and Grand Theft for being in possession of the stolen jewelry. In addition, Brown was charged with Driving with a Suspended License and was issued a citation for window tint violations. Burglar Returning to Scene of Crime is Nabbed by PoliceBoca Raton, FL On Wednesday, May 30 at just after midnight, Boca Raton Police officers investigated an alarm at the B Kwik store, 1921 North Federal Highway. When they arrived, they found the front door smashed, but a gate enclosing the cash reg ister area appeared undisturbed. A wrench was found inside the business that did not belong there. Later that day, Boca Raton detectives returned to the store to get a copy of the surveillance video. The detective and the owner reviewed the video and watched as the suspect smashed the front door and went inside, where he took several packs of cigarettes. In the video the suspect was carrying a cream-colored backpack. While still reviewing the video, the detective and owner looked up and saw a male walking in the parking lot, who looked like the suspect and was carrying a cream-colored backpack. The detective approached the suspect, identified as Thomas Whittaker. Whittaker said he was walking by the store the night before and smashed out the front door to steal cigarettes. Whittaker still had a pack of the cigarettes with him. When questioned further, Whittaker told the detective he was also looking to steal bath salts. Whittaker was arrested and charged with burglary to a structure and retail theft.Boca, Delray Safety Personnel Take Part in Nuclear Training DrillPalm Beach County emergency managers recently took part in a training exercise involving an incident at the St. Lucie Nuclear Power Plant. Participating agencies included Palm Beach County Fire Rescue, the Sheriffs Office, Public Safety, Public Affairs, the West Palm Beach, Boca Raton and Delray Beach fire departments, the Palm Beach County Health Department, and the American Red Cross. Palm Beach was one of five counties participating in the biennial exercise, which simulated protective measures each would take if a real emergency were to occur at the plant. Palm Beach Countys role was that of receiver for St. Lucie County residents who had to be evacuated. Emergency response personnel from various federal, state and local agencies gathered at an open field near the Mound Circle Pavilion in John Prince Park where processing sta tions were set up. Students posing as evac uees, along with their pets were screened for radiation exposure, then decontaminated and treated for injuries, if necessary, and assigned to temporary shelter. Observers from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) were on site for required evaluations. The Emergency Operations Center was activated, and representatives from most county departments were involved.

In order to do business with the Federal government, suppliers are required to complete CCR registration. It is also recommended that small businesses complete a DSBS profile to help them win contracts. If your competition is trying to win contracts too, that means all their information is right at your fingertips.

To find another business in CCR, go to the CCR website and click the Search link in the top menu. On the search page, you have a number of options. If youre looking for a specific company, try entering their business name (you can also use their DUNS number or CAGE code if you know it). If youre just looking for other businesses in your industry, you can enter the NAICS code and geographical informa tion as well. CCR will also let you search according to socio-economic factors, such as 8(a) participation or woman owned businesses. To find another business in the DSBS, go to the DSBS site and enter the criteria you wish to search by. The DSBS offers a much more powerful search with a seemingly endless list of criteria you can search by. Here, you can also get a glimpse at what your competitors capabilities are, if they completed their profile.

Zimmerman, who works alongside his wife Monica, was not always involved in the reupholstery business. A California native, he began his career as an aerospace engineer. When he decided to move to the South Florida community, he found that there was a lack of opportunities in the aero space business. I couldnt find a job, much of the aerospace business is concentrated in the west coast, Zimmerman said. Luckily, Zimmerman was able to use his background in engineering to start a business in reupholstery. I started a business with reupholstery because I was able to build anything from scratch, Zimmerman said, We started the business in 1978 in a warehouse, I had kids, and no penny to my name, Since he began his business, Zim merman has changed the location of J.D Michaels a total of three times, but all located within the same area. To draw some inspiration for the companys name, Zimmerman used the name of his three children. Justin, David, and Michael were responsible for what became known as J.D Michaels. The company, which specializes in reupholstery, provides many services for their clients. In order to give a piece of furniture a new look, Zimmerman is able to redesign and transform it. Anything that involves fabric, leather, and vinyl, we can reupholster, said Zimmerman. J.D Michaels uses a variety of high end companies to obtain their fabrics. They include, Brunschwig & Fils, Clarence House, Scott Fabrics, Kravet, Robert Allen, and Durlee. Detail is very important. We work with top of the line fabrics, added Zim merman. Most of Zimmermans clients are in their late 30s to early 80s. For perspective clients, Zimmerman offers in home services. By providing an in home service, it gives Zimmerman the opportunity to work closely with the client. We also have shop at home services, Zimmerman added, we come to the home, bring fabrics, and we coordinate those fabrics to the environment. I am not a designer, but I will put my work up against any of them. Zimmerman, who accounts the quality of his work to his continued success, works diligently to provide the best service he can to his clients. I pride myself in the quality of my work, praised Zimmerman, I put more work into completing a piece of furniture, even if it takes more time, to ensure that I do a very good job. For anyone looking to redesign or provide a new look to their furniture, Zimmerman and J.D Michaels can ensure quality reupholstery to your new project. J.D Michaels Interiors is located at 100 N.W 28th Street in Boca Raton, FL. For more details call 561-391-8333.

BUSINESS East/West Boca Raton, FL Five FAU Business and Engineering Students Receive Paid Summer Internships BOCA RATON Five Florida Atlantic University students recently accepted paid summer internships with Lockheed Martin Corporation as a result of their performance in the spring semesters Business and Entrepreneurship course, which offered FAU business and engineering students the opportunity to work together with industry experts. The semester-long projects have the possibility of real-world application and implementation as teams worked to solve current business problems, said Som Bhattacharya, Ph.D., interim dean of FAUs College of Business. This blended team approach of allowing students from different FAU colleges to create viable business propositions provides a true holistic business solution. Lockheed Martin offers students the opportunity to work on teams with highly skilled professionals to solve challenging and exciting engineering, information systems, and software development problems. During the internship, the students will develop a prototype for a device to be used to capture data from a sensor under water and interpret their findings into digital data for decision-making information using Android tools. The internship program will be housed in a space provided by the Research Park at FAU and run from May to August. Tim Van Epps, former instructor in the College of Engineering and Computer Science, and Jeanne Mc Connell, instructor in the College of Business, will serve as academic mentors. The prototype concept was originally developed as a student project in this innovative course and over time led to implementation of FAU students helping to solve a current business problem. Oversight from Lockheed Martin during the course came under the tutelage of FAU alumnus Tom de Groot, a senior program manager for Lockheed Martin. With the success of the Business and Entrepreneurship class, FAU will continue to look into expanding its interdisciplinary offerings and involvement with community partners. past 20 years, has been named as one of the best outdoor diningrestaurantsin & Beyond,will take place at theShops at Boca Center onNovember 15, 2012, and will be the ocial unveiling of the brand new courtyard! mance and personal commitment to their businesses and communities.

Deena Lang from 97.9 WRMF, joined the 88-year-old family-owned and operated company to raise funds for the nonprofit. Making Lives Brighter runs through the end of August. During the campaign, customers can donate their old lighting at any South Florida Capitol Lighting showroom to be repurposed in a Habitat-built home or sold at one of their Re-Stores. In exchange for donated lighting fixtures, lamps and fans, supporters will receive a 10 percent discount toward any new lighting purchase, as well as a tax deduction from Habitat for Humanity. Habitat is one of most respected charitable organizations providing an invaluable service to those in need, said Eric Lebersfeld, president of Capitol Lighting. The Capitol Lighting family is honored to be able to support such a worthy cause and truly help to make lives brighter in our community. Five food trucks from the Gourmet Truck Expo and Deena Lang from 97.9 WRMF were on-site with the WRMF street team. Deena created her own sig nature sandwich with the Stocked N Loaded food truck and proceeds of the sandwich benefited Habitat for Humanity. There were raffles, giveaways and goodie bags provided throughout the event. The event also helped to kick-off the Fandemonium sale at Capitol Lighting going on throughout the summer.

27 Edition 103 for news 24/7 go to bocaratontribune.com June 21, 2012 through June 27, 2012www.bocaratontribune.com Little Frustrations Can Lead To Big ProblemsMany times I have been amazed to witness how minor frustrations in the workplace can mount up into one big, bad attitude by the time you leave for home. As wise King Solomon of Israel wrote thousands of years ago, Catch for us the foxes, the little foxes that ruin the vineyard (Song of Songs 2:15). Each workplace is its own unique problems, the issues that can arise to ruin even the most pleasant and peaceful day. But I have learned the frustrations that we all experience in the business and professional world typically come in three varieties: INTERRUPTIONS: These come in the form of unexpected visitors or phone calls such as the one I received while typing this particular sentence! These interruptions have an uncanny way of showing up whenever we have a deadline to meet, or some other important matter that requires our time. Even the most thorough preparations cannot keep our best plans from being interrupted. INCONVENIENCES: Interruptions usually come in the form of people, but inconveniences are usually situations involving things often tools and modern conveniences that put us into a tailspin when they fail to function properly. For instance, the copy machine breaks down and you (or someone else) must take the time to get it operating properly. Traffic jams up, leaving you sitting still on the roadway rather than arriving for appointment on time. Or you cannot find an important document for a presentation. IRRITATIONS: These typically are delays of various kinds: For instance, unreliable people who fail to keep commitments; playing telephone tag with someone you need to talk with, exchang ing messages but never succeeding in making direct contact; contracting a minor illness that leaves you feeling below par; or obnoxious clients that fail to appreciate all you are trying to do for them. Whether you like it or not, interruptions, inconveniences and irritations are all facts of life. No matter how hard you try, you cannot eliminate these. I guarantee you will encounter all three types of frustration this week. However, even though you cannot avoid them, you can learn to keep them from causing you unnecessary stress. What is the secret for managing frustrations? Do not resist them. Accept frustra tions, but do not overreact or explode in anger. Do not resent them. Do not intensify the frustration by internalizing your anger. Do not resign to them. Refuse to indulge in self-pity simply because of an unexpected obstacle. Reduce them. Treat the frustration as significant, but put it into proper perspec tive. Regard it simply as a minor setback, a part of living, rather than as a major calamity. The Bible teaches that one of the byproducts of wisdom is patience. We need to view our circumstances from Gods perspective. When I am in tune with God, I remember He has everything under control, even though I do not. As Galatians 5:22 tells us, The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience. 2010, Purpose Driven Life. All rights reserved.

Mr. Gora may be reached at mailto:mhgora@ sbwlawfirm.com. Not Again!Q My ex-wife and I lived in California when we got divorced seven years ago. We have two children. We entered into a marital settlement agreement. I agreed to pay a total of $1,000 a month in child support. Since that time, she remarried and moved to Atlanta. I moved, and now live, in Palm Beach County. A week ago I was served with pa pers from the ex asking for an increase in child support, because she no longer worked, and because she thought that I was making a lot more money than I used to make. The man she married is a lawyer who, it appears, makes a lot of money, so she does not have to work. Can the Florida court order more child support against me? Can she just quit working and get more support because she does not need to work? Can she just start this up again, and make me give her my current financials? A The power of the court over you is called jurisdiction. Since neither you nor your ex-wife lives in California any more, she can seek modification of the California judgment against you where you live. Even though your original case was in California, Florida law will apply. Under Florida law, the right to modify depends on whether or not there has been an involuntary, permanent, material change of circumstances. If your former wife voluntarily left the workforce because of her new marriage, she cannot rely on that change to ask for more support, because it was a voluntary change. The case will then turn on whether or not you are now, permanently, making more money than you were at the time of the divorce. Your former wife will have the burden to prove that there has been such a permanent change in your income, and she will have the benefit of the Florida rules of discovery to gather your financial information. You will have to turn over your tax returns, bank records, brokerage account records and business records for the time since the divorce. If you are now making more money and the court finds that the change is permanent and material, a new calcula tion will have to be made under the Florida child support guidelines statute. Income will be imputed to her at the amount she was earning at the time she voluntarily quit work after her re-marriage. If she cannot prove that your income has changed, and the only difference arises because the Florida support guidelines statute is more generous than the California statute, no increase should be granted.Columnists

29 Edition 103 for news 24/7 go to bocaratontribune.com June 21, 2012 through June 27, 2012www.bocaratontribune.com By: Pedro Heizer Two years ago when LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh decided to join forces in Miami they knew they would be met with much criticism. People saying they took shortcuts, and took the easy way to win. But what they didnt know was that their first season together would have been the most scrutinized season of any NBA franchise in the history of professional sports. Despite of all the noise, Miami came close; in 2011 they won the Eastern Conference but ultimately lost to the Dallas Mavericks here in Miami. With the pain of last year still in everyones mind, the Heat did everything in their power to get those images out of their heads and Thursday night. We love you Miami, said head coach Erik Spoelstra to the Heat faithful after the Heat beat the Thunder in Game 5 of the Finals 121-106, We didnt forget about last year. Thank you for your patience. LeBron, who was named Finals MVP, scored 26 points to go along with 13 assists and 11 rebounds, finishing with a triple-double in the biggest game of his career. James entered Game 5 averaging 29.3 points, 10 rebounds and six assists in the series. ESPNs Stuart Scott asked LeBron after he received the MVP trophy what was the first thought in his mind after the clock reached zero, Its about damn time, James said. Bosh and Wade, the other members of the Big Three both had strong games. Bosh, who wept as the Heat left their own court after losing Game 6 last year, finished with 24 points and Wade scored 20. The Heat also got a huge boost from Mike Miller, who made seven 3-pointers and scored 23 points. The disappointment of losing to Dallas in six games a year ago vanished in a blowout of the demoralized Thunder, who got 32 points and 11 rebounds from Kevin Durant. It hurts. It hard, man. Were all brothers on this team, and it just hurt to go out like this. We made it to the Finals, which was cool for us but we didnt just want to make it there. Unfortunately, we lost, so its tough. Said Kevin Durant after the game. Although the ultimate story of the NBA Finals will be LeBron James greatness and finally winning his first NBA Championship, Miamis supporting cast of Mike Miller, Shane Battier, Mario Chalmers, and Udonis Haslem cant go unnoticed. Miller, who played with a bad back the entire postseason, was sensational in Game 5. He scored a postseason-careerhigh 23 points and was 7 of 8 from three-point range after averaging just two points a game to begin the series. The Heat made 14 of 26 attempts from three-point range, setting an NBA Finals record. Pure adrenaline, Spoelstra said of Millers performance. Its no surprise to anyone that Mike Miller is hurt. In fact, Miller is so hurt that he limped from the bench to scorers table when he checked in and throughout the game you could see him grimacing, and holding to his back. After the game, Miller came up hobbling to the podium and spoke on playing hurt, Tonight was that opportunity. A lot of us dreamed of these situations. For me, coming from South Dakota and having an opportunity to play in two NBA Finals now is a dream come true. I wasnt going to miss that for anything in the world. A lot of us dreamed of these situations, Miller said. Through the injuries, Im just glad they didnt take me to the back of the barn and put me down. Im just happy to be here. Dwyane Wade and Udonis Haslem are the only two players left from the 2006 Championship run; in fact, they are two of the four players of that Championship team that still plays in the NBA. Since I won it six years ago, Ive been through a lot in my personal life and Ive been through a lot in my professional life, Wade said. This one means so much more. Speaking of LeBron James, he set a new standard for postseason greatness by having 13 games in the playoffs with at least 25 points, five rebounds and five assists. Michael Jordan, Larry Bird and James himself held the old record of 11 straight games with at least 25-5-5 in the postseason. LeBron really took being the best player in the league to a different level and did it all season, Wade said. After everything this team has gone through for the past two years, the Big Three and company can sit back and enjoy being World Champions. Sure, the media and fans are already thinking about next season. Who will go? Who will be signed? Who will be traded? But at least for the rest of the summer, the Miami Heat are not worried about that and Chris Bosh said it best, We came here to win a championship and we got it done. SportsThe Boca Raton Tribune SportsThe Kings of The NBA; Miami Wins Second Championship in Franchise History Miami Heats Salary Cap ExplainedBy: Steven Rawnsley The Heat are about to go into the offseason full of momentum after winning the championship. Now, the question becomes what is next for the Heat? Before you start mentioning potential free agents, you have to understand the current cap situation for the Heat. First, the salary cap will remain at 58 million like it was for this season, and the luxury threshold will be held at about 70 million. Neither one of these figures changed from this past season. If you are under the cap, you can sign anybody for up to the maximum amount as long as you do not exceed the cap. Once you are over the cap, you have what is called the mid-level exception, which can start at five million. Teams that are paying taxes however, are different. They can still use the mid-level exception, but they can only start at a salary of three million for their first year. This upcoming season the tax system will remain the same, but this is the final year of it. For every $1 a team is over the luxury threshold, they pay the NBA $1. Next year however, that changes, depending on how much you are over. With the draft pick and if Ronny Turiaf picks up his player option, the Heat will be at approximately $80 million with thirteen players. They will pay about ten million in extra salary to the league, since they are ten million over the luxury, with no other moves. However, starting in the 2013-14 season, the taxes get harsher. For a team just barely over the tax, to $4,999,999 over, the taxes will be, $1.50 for every $1 over. $5,000,000 to $9,999,999 over, the taxes are at $1.75 for each dollar. If the Heat want to go out and use the three million dollar exception, and be $10,000,000 to $14,999,999 over, its $2.50 for every dollar. If a team is $15,000,000 to $19,999,999 over, it is $3.25 for every dollar. Heading into the 2013-14 season, the Heat are currently at 80.9 million, with ten players if James Jones picks up his player option for that season, and if they exercise the four million dollar team option on Mario Chalmers. This does not include any draft picks. That means the Heat will be paying at least 27 million in luxury taxes, before they complete their roster, with the final three pieces. Also if a team pays luxury four out of the past five years, those taxes increase by $1.00 per dollar. This is why the Heat might just stay pat this offsea son. Gone are the days where teams that pay luxury taxes every season can go out and use the mid-level exception. It is a lot more expensive now. When the Heat signed the big three, they knew they would be luxury payers all the time, but now, they have to be careful how much over the luxury threshold they go. The Heat have not used the amnesty clause, and this could ease the pain of their luxury payments. If a team uses the amnesty clause they still pay the player his salary, but they do not go against the books. The most likely candidate of this provision for the Heat is Mike Miller. He has been banged up in his tenure, and has talked about how he might not be able to play again because of his back. If a player retires, he stays on the books, but the team does not pay him. Now, if he retires, the Heat could save his salary, and then use the amnesty clause for his original contract not to go against the cap. It does not give them any more options in terms of signings, but it saves them money. He is owed thirteen million the next two seasons with a player option for the 2014-15 season. Cap wise, the Heat have virtually no flexibility. This is not a big deal though, considering they knew it would be this way when they signed their big three. While adding a player might sound all great to fans, it might not sound all that great to Mickey Arisons pocketbook.
30 Edition 103 June 21, 2012 through June 27, 2012www.bocaratontribune.com SPORTS East/West Boca Raton, FL SportsLeBron Finally Got the Help he NeededBy: Steven Rawnsley LeBron James finally got his elusive championship. For the first time, I will call him King James. Matt Pineda had a great article on the evolution of LeBron. He is grabbing all of the headlines, and after all of the criticism he deserves all of the praise that is coming his way. However, lets spread the love around. Back in March, I wrote an article on how the Heat started to look vulnerable because at times the game looked like it was three on five. I did the same thing after game four against the Pacers. While LeBron is getting all of the headlines for the championship, the role players really wrote the final chapter of the season for the Heats season. One player can dominate basketball more than any other major team sport. However, even that one player needs help, and boy did LeBron get it in the playoffs. LeBron capped off the finals with a triple double to silence all of his critics about his clutch game. (He was only one rebound away from having a triple double in game four also.) However, Mike Miller also silenced his critics also. People talked about how Mike Miller was an amnesty candidate this offseason. He has been banged up during his tenure in Miami, and has not played as well as the Heat were hoping he would. In the clinching game, he absolutely exploded, and silenced all of his critics. Nobody in finals history has hit more threes off the bench then Miller did, by hitting seven. It was not like he was just shooting the ball all the time either, only taking eight threes. He put on one of the all-time great finals performances by a role player. Yours truly, was the biggest critic of Shane Battier all year long. At times, I wondered if the game had slipped him by. For being such a defensive stopper, Melo was lighting him up in the first round. I kept pointing out that he has always been a great shooter and defender. However, this year, he was shooting below 40% not just from downtown, but from the field in the regular season. Then he comes up huge in game seven against Boston, he goes 4-9 from downtown, hitting them in critical times. In the finals he averaged 11.6 points on 6.2 fgas, including going 12-17 in games one and two combined. In game four on the jump ball, the ball was tipped in his direction, and he then tipped it to Chalmers to set up the eventual clinching free throws. This will never show up in the box score, but it was as big as any play. Last, but not least, Mario Chalmers came up huge when they needed him to. Like Battier, I was really getting on his case, especially in the second half of the season. After the all-star break, he shot below 40% from the field. In game four the Heat needed every point Chalmers gave them. Without Chalmers, they do not win game four, and this is a completely different series. In that game he scored 25 points on 15 fgss. I do not want to take anything away from LeBron. He has been the best allaround player for a few years now. There is a reason why he has three MVPs. However, even he knew that he could not do it alone. That is why he joined Miami to team up with Wade, Bosh, and the rest of the organization. He finally got the help from the supporting cast, and now he is getting the praises he has long deserved. Spring Football 2012: Pope John Paul II Eyeing a Bounce Back Season in 2012By: Malcolm Shields In the 30 years that Matt Dillon has been a head football coach, he has never had a season like the one he witnessed in 2011. The Eagles coach relied on two freshman quarterbacks to lead his offense. The Eagles only had six seniors on the roster. The growing pains were evident as Pope John Paul II finished with a 1-9 record. Despite the tough season, many players on the Eagles logged valuable playing time and put in work in the weight room to improve their conditioning for the upcoming season. These guys dedicated themselves. We had tremendous commitment to the offseason program, Dillon said. There is no doubt that we are a better football team. Upcoming sophomore quarterbacks Carmine Giuffrida and RJ Ritz have been splitting the reps throughout spring practice. Its been great competition between the two guys. They each bring something different to the table, Dillon said. They both are going to play [in the spring game]. I want them to have the opportunity to be competitive and compete for the position. Pope John Paul II has multiple playmakers on defense. Middle linebacker Stefan Hinz has been one of the top performers on defense in the spring. He is a physical presence at the Mike linebacker position. He runs extremely well, Dillon said. Hes got to be our bell cow on defense. Bobby Lentz, who also plays running back on offense, will play along side Hinz at outside linebacker. The Eagles secondary has depth to compete with many teams that favor the passing game. Cornerbacks Dequan Mc Griff, Gunner Gius and free safety Will Jeanlys, have good ball skills and provide good support in the run game. All three players also contribute on offense for the Eagles. With the talent at the skill positions, Pope John Paul II matches up well against most teams that it will face. One area of concern for the Eagles is the depth on both the offensive and defensive lines. Although the Eagles have a core group of linemen on each side of the ball, they can not afford to sustain injuries to either line this season. What is going to be the determining factor on success or lack of success are the guys up front, Dillon said. We are trying to rotate those guys as much as possible to keep them fresh. The results of the offseason condition, their new resolve and the experience that the young core of starters for the Eagles have will be tested against Ransom Everglades. I want these coming out of the game with some confidence. Last year we were not a confident football team. Dillon said. We have made great strides and Im interested to see how it all plays out.
