I told him I was not interested and shut the door. Did I do the right thing? What else should I have done? A: You did the right thing, but I would recommend calling the police immediately to report the incident. Criminals use various distraction techniques so they or their accomplice can enter your home and steal your valuables; generally jewelry and cash. e most common technique used is by asking you to go outside to talk about work that needs to be done to your house or work which is being done to a neighbors house which may aect you. Other techniques which are used as ruses to gain entry into your home are spilling some sort of liquid on you which they say is harmful and must be washed o immediately, or by posing as some type of worker needing access to your residence. Regardless,neveropen your door for solicitors or workers you did not previously hire, rather speak through the door and contact the police immediately. Crime and safety questions are answered by ocers from the Crime Prevention Unit. For more information, visit www.BocaPolice.com.

4 Edition 105 July 5, 2012 through July 11, 2012www.bocaratontribune.com BOCA RATON -KidSafe Founda tion, a 501c3 nonprofit whose mission is to empower children and adults through education to prevent child abuse, believes the trial of Jerry Sandusky should act as a wake-up call to the importance of sex abuse prevention training to protect children from pedophile predators. KidSafe Foundation Co-Founder Sally Berenzweig, MEd, MA says, When you hear Sandusky talk, it is pedophile speakhe does not think what he did was wrong. The children he abused were no match for such a skilled pedophile whose goal is to make a child feel it is their fault; that no one will believe them, especially when it is someone so revered as Sandusky who was at Penn State. We must educate children and adults about the dangers and how to access help. It is our hope that Jerry Sanduskys guilty verdict shows survivors you will be believed, you need to tell, most dont know how to we want to teach them. A true pedophile thinks the child is a willing participant. He makes the child think this as well, and therein lies why children, most often do not tell. Child sex abuse statistics are shocking; 90 percent of the time a child is harmed by someone they know, 68 percent of the time it is a family member. Established by child safety experts, Sally Berenzweig MEd, MA and Cherie Benjoseph, LCSW, KidSafe Foundation wants every child to understand and believe that they have the right to be safe. The founders believe that sexual abuse prevention training should be mandated for every adult working with children. Not only will this help the adults rec ognize the red flags of an offender when they are in the process of grooming our children, it will teach them what do and how to respond to protect children, comments Co-Founder, Cherie Benjoseph. KidSafe Foundation provides Prevention Education programs and materials to children and adults to decrease child sexual abuse, bullying, and internet dangers. The Foundations goal is to give children a voice and empower them and the adults who keep them safe with education and communication skills to become the first line of defense in their childrens safety.

The ceremony will follow a production of Jesus Christ Superstar, being presented by EntrActe Theatrix and Palm Beach Principal Players. A series of performances is scheduled to raise money to help Caldwell pull itself out of bankruptcy. McArt will be honored at a piano bar/ pizza party at the Count de Hoernle Theatre (home of the Caldwell) following the Sunday matinee performance of Jesus Christ Superstar.

The cost to attend both Jesus Christ Superstar and the after-show tribute is $35 in advance and $40 day of show. Just as this production of Jesus Christ Superstar is resurrecting the recentlyshuttered Caldwell Theatre, so too are we going to use this show to remember with great fondness another vanished cultural landmark in Boca Raton, the Royal Palm Dinner Theatre, and its guiding light and guardian angel, the always enchanting Jan McArt, said Vicki Halmos, direc tor of the Palm Beach Principal Players.

7 Edition 105 for news 24/7 go to bocaratontribune.com Jul5, 2012 through July 11, 2012www.bocaratontribune.com BOCA RATON Florida Atlantic University Libraries have recently signed an agreement to share copies of their articles and documents with the American University of Nigeria Library. The university, which serves about 1,400 students and 100 faculty members in the farming town of Yola, Nigeria, is struggling to develop research and teaching programs. The agreement allows the seven-year-old library to request up to 30 electronic photocopies of periodicals, conference papers, government documents and other materials each month from FAU Libraries interlibrary loan department. We are glad to assist this young institution in providing access to its faculty as they establish their research programs, said William Miller, Ph.D., dean of University Libraries at FAU. The university is in a poorer region and does not have a budget to access the expensive proprietary materials that we subscribe to. This is FAU Libraries second agreement for special services with an international library. Since 2001, FAU Libraries have sent electronic copies of materials to the Papa zian Library at the American University of Armenia in Yerevan, Armenia. The American University of Nigeria and the American University of Armenia are modeled after the U.S. higher education structure. At the American University of Nigeria, many of the professors and administrators are either American or have worked in colleges or universities in the United States. The librarys director, Amed Demirhan, is an American and a former Broward County Library employee who became acquainted with Miller and FAU Libraries through the Southeast Florida Library Information Network. This agreement is a big window for us and will allow our faculty access to current scholarly resources, said Demirhan. The intent of the special agreements is consistent with FAUs reputation of forging distinctive alliances, serving diverse communities and expanding its international presence. The agreements also demonstrate the good will of FAU Libraries, which primarily use WorldCat, a global network of library content and services that uses the web to connect 72,000 member libraries in 170 countries, as its main source for sharing research and resources. This demonstrates our willingness to share resources in the international arena and identifies us as a good place to come to for resources, said Troy Christenson, interlibrary loan librarian and coordinator at FAU Libraries. Sharing our resources enhances our ability to borrow materials for our university community. FAU Libraries interlibrary loan department is receiving more requests for interna tional articles and documents, and expects that trend to continue to rise. FAUs diverse student and faculty populations are requesting more research materials in their native languages, and the Internet is helping to increase awareness of the availability of the articles. The more our budgets shrink, the more it will continue to drive up demand for these services, said Christenson. We must borrow because we cannot purchase or store all of the materials.COMMUNITY NEWS East/West Boca Raton, FL Community NewsFAU Libraries Share Resource Materials with Universities in Nigeria, ArmeniaOmachi Okolo, a library assistant at the American University of Nigeria Library, helps students (left) Bassaro Abdulrasheed and Kamilu Elwan.

Sincerely, Troy McLellan President and CEO Greater Boca Raton Chamber of CommerceIts summer. Its hot. The Fourth of July has passed us by and theres not very much to do. At least thats what a lot of people seem to think. Well, you know you can always find something going on at Florida Atlantic University. Just look to the performing arts area. The universitys Theater and Dance Department is up and running for the season, offering its annual series of Summer Festival Reparatory performances at Studio One, Studio Two and in the University Theater. As usual, the department is alternating two shows, and therell be a final performance to end the series on July 28. My wife and I were intrigued by production of Shakespeares Loves Labours Lost. Director Jean Louis Baldet said he adapted the Elizabethan Era comedy by setting it in Key West circa 1947. This was the Key West of Hemingway, Tennessee Williams, a place where President Truman came to relax, at the Little White House, away from the affairs of state, Baldet said. In his adaptation, Key West is an independent kingdom, the seat of power of the Great Florida Keys. They Conchs, as they are called, lay claim to the Peninsula of Florida in a dispute with the King of France. The arrival of the kings daughter tests the resolve of four young men who are in Key West to give up wine, women and song (wrong place to do that). While each tries to hide his infatuations from each other, in the end their trysts are too hard to keep quiet. The play ends as they are all revealed and join in a gigantic celebration and dance. The play is in Studio One on the following dates and times: Saturday, July 7, 7 pm; Friday, July 13, 7 pm; Saturday, July 14, 1 pm Sunday, July 15, 1 pm and Saturday, July 21, 7 pm Shakespeares show alternates with Showtune, a revue of songs by Jerry Herman, who offered up hit tunes in everything from Mack and Mabel to La Cage Aux Folles. Jerry was himself a distinguished Broadway composer and lyricist. Showtune performance dates are Saturday, July 7, 1 pm; Sunday, July 8, 1 pm; Thursday, July 12, 1 pm; Saturday, July 14, 7 pm; Thursday, July 19, 1 pm; Friday, July 20, 7 pm and Saturday, July 21, all in the University Theater. The curtain comes down Saturday, July 28 at 7 pm when FAUs all-Florida College Jazz Band presents an evening of hits from the 30s, 40s and 50s. Authentic music of Big Band sensations like Count Basie, Duke Ellington, Glenn Miller and Benny Goodman will fill the air.

Thank you for all that you shared with me, your knowledge, your time, your experiences and especially your friendship. You made my job easy.. even though there were times we had to do more than one take. My position will not be filled; however they will be turning over the PIO duties to my friend and co worker Assistant Chief Mike Gergora. A seasoned veteran in the fire service he will no doubt be a valuable asset to our city and to each and every one of you. With your help the transition of my position will be easy. God Speed, Frank!

This continues for quite some time until they can become more fully independent of pa rental care. It is during those growing years that they need to learn vital lessons about assuming responsibility for personal decisions, and for taking the initiative on various life demands. Eventually, on their own, they also need to recognize in lifes jourmey, the necessity of seeking wisdom from responsible persons, and not acting totally independent from fellow humans. Daily we are confronted with a multiplicity of situations which couldve been avoided if we had been more proactive in taking personal initiative in dealing with them. This occurs in creating something that needs to be done as well as in preventing, or even terminating, situations which should not persist! For many years Ive been challenged by ten twoletter words that address this issue very accurately and eloquently. They clearly show that bad things wont stop, nor will good things ever get started, unless you do your part to ensure that such is the case in either instance. Those ten words Im referring to are: IF IT IS TO BE, IT IS UP TO ME! In other words, never wait for others to do what you yourself can accomplish; avoid delaying what has no need to wait any longer when the opportunity and the resources for quick action are right before you! Sadly, in our society, people are quick in blaming others for not having done certain things which they, themselves, could have tackled, whether to end an undesirable condition, to prevent a potential disaster, or to promote a positive project which can impact for good a large number of people. Finger-pointing and some types of loud protest are often too late in coming, and far less effective than doing what you are able to achieve, at the right time, in the right way, and for the right reasons, always employing the right tools and following the best possible strategies! Dont think of others as the only solvers of situa tions you are capable of addressing. Instead, recruit others for what you have already initiated. Quickly discover, help develop, and effectively deploy fellow laborers in accordance with their talents to be utilized in the situation you seek to improve or resolve! Any life of inactivity is a wasted life. Yet, humans everywhere are daily surrounded with new challenges that must be addressed! You can take the initiative to do what you are able! his education in four of them. When he resided in southern California, he wrote a weekly column for the daily Anaheim Bulletin, which was carried for about six years, until he moved to south Florida. First and foremost, I would like to thank the Boca Raton community both east and west -for their continuous support of the Boca Raton Tribune, which has been delivered in a print edition for more than two years and offers a wonderfully diverse website. With your support, we look forward to the growth of the publication. We are excited this week to announce that the newest edition of Downtown Boca will be released in the upcoming weeks. We would also like to congratulate our sister publication, the Coral Springs Tribune. After one year of providing local news on the online website, we are happy to provide the first print publication to the community of Coral Springs this week. To efficiently run a newspaper, it is imperative to have the proper resources and funds. For the Boca Raton Tribune, we are counting on the generosity from businesses both inside of and outside the Boca Raton area. However, we would like to encourage more support from businesses in the city of Boca Raton to place ads in the newspaper. The city of Boca Raton is a community that is large enough to provide prominent stories rather than small excerpts. We would like to see these news stories delivered with many ads within the printed publication. This will help the Tribune to extend its coverage in order to provide the community with relevant information. Like our sister publications, the Delray Beach Tribune and the Coral Springs Tribune, we promise to continue to serve the city of Boca Raton in the same way. We promise to provide news articles pertinent to the city of Boca Raton and its surrounding areas. We hope to always provide local news that everyone can depend on. Thank you for your continuous support and I wish the Delray Beach Tribune and Coral Springs Tribune a bright future. I look forward to always providing the city with relevant local news because we truly are Your Closest Neighbor.Boca Tribune Salutes Sister Publications, Coral Springs and Delray Beach Tribunes

Thanks to the magic of computer animation Ted not only springs to life, he develops a randy personality of his own. Ted is rated R. Much of the humor derives from the shock value of a foul-mouthed Teddy bear doing raunchy things. Ted is like a perennial adolescent, always on the make. InexpliJohn has a longtime girlfriend named Lori (Mila Kunis) who also inexplicably tolerates Ted as a rival met when John and Lori come home ers. Its not so much the hookers but the really gross thing one of them has done that disgusts Lori. Understandably Lori issues an ultimatum: the bear or me. I dont know what is so tragic about a man having to man up, but a number of Hollywood fantasies seem to be based on the same dilemma. Jason Segal had the same problem in The Muppets, but that was a kinder, gentler and more touching comedy. Ted is simply gross and not much fun.

More dangerous yet is to exercise under the heat and the high humidity levels. Learn how to protect yourself against this 4 dangerous health conditions that may be potentially fatal. 1) Dehydration The dehydration is not only limited to the summer months, even do being more commun this time of the year. Several health professionals believe that the ma jority of the population is in a chronic dehydration state. Beverages like coffee, teas, sodas, and alcohol, act like diuretics, and if consumed daily, without at least the same amount of water ingested, it will cause dehydration. Now, if the individual is physically active the chances for dehydration are even higher. Working outdoors under high humidity and temperatures promotes perspiration, and may cause dehydration. The perspiration is an important process, because it cools down the body, but at the same time it dehydrates it by the loss of electrolytes. If you are lightly dehydrated and sweat you may aggravate the dehydration. It is important to maintain good levels of fluid ingestion at all times. Once you feel thisty it is already too late, because the human body can withstand hours of critical levels of lack of fluids before you feel thirsty. By watching the color of your urine you you may know if you are dehydrated. The urine must be pale yellow or even very clear. If not, you must ingest more fluids. 2) Muscle Cramps due to the heat Muscle cramps caused by the high temperatures of the summer are very painful and rarely improve with a quick massage or by firming the leg on the ground. They occur due to the loss of minerals with the sweat and dehydration. Once you get to the point of this type of cramps, its to late to try to replace the fluids and electrolytes lost. To get rid of this type of muscle cramps you have to interrupt the physical activity you are performing and must ingest fluids. The fluids ingested may includ sports drinks and plain water. Apply massage to the involved muscles to decrease the pain, cool down the body with wet towels to decrease the body metabolism, and prevent the further loss of fluids thru sweat. 3) Heat Exaustion Heat Exaustion is a dangerous condition that can lead to serious health complications. The symptoms commonly observed during heat exaustion are: dizziness, chills (mainly in the arms and body), nausea, moderate to severe headaches, decreased coordination, muscle weakness, muscle cramps, and increased heart bit. If you experience one or more of these symptoms you should: stop the activity immediately, drink plenty of fluids and sports drinks,change in loose and dry clothes, lye down with your legs elevated above the heart level, and go to the nearest emergency room. 4) Heat stroke Heat stroke can be fatal. Unfortunately several individuals ignore the symptoms of heatstroke and continue to push to the point of a termoregulatory system collapse. The symptoms of heat stroke are similar to the symptoms of heat exaustion but rapidly progress to: desorienta tion, severe weakness, strange behavior, rapid pulse, cessation of sweat, hot and dry skin, and high body temperature of 104 degrees Fahrenheit (40 degrees Celcius) or higher, loss of consciousness, convulsions and coma. To practice physical exercises outdoors is very important, but do not allow the heat to put your health in danger. Follow the above stated precautions, dont forget to apply a good sunscreen and enjoy the benefits of the summer.

22 Edition 105 July 5, 2012 through July 11, 2012www.bocaratontribune.com An old proverb is that everything seems to change but often actually remains the same. After being away for the last few weeks and now returning to the ongoing controversy raised by Boca Citizens for Fiscal Responsibility, an action item requiring a closer look at choices for our elected officials to consider is warranted. Mayor Whelchel made the recommendation to bring to the forefront the pension issues being demanded by this vocal citizens group, a righteous position. However, rumor has it that the Mayor is actually the catalyst driving these issues with the firefighters in her crosshairs for their opposition during the last election cycle. Regardless, the issue is important and, whether for right or wrong reasons, deserves a public hearing and conversation. So the city manager will do just that at a public hearing on July 10th. All are welcomed to attend.. In researching the pension issues from around the nation, one finds very interesting options, none of which are particularly appealing and all of which are litigious and costly. What are the options.. To begin, there are existing agreements not subject to reopening at this time. Therefore, from a contract point of view, elected officials have three available options: Honor the current contracts and do nothing. A result not acceptable to the fiscal responsibility group; Renegotiate the contracts. However, that will require the unions to agree to voluntarily reopen negotia tions, a result that is becoming more and more unlikely; and, Break the contracts and force litigation that the city will lose and spend a lot of the citizens tax dollars in the process. None of these are acceptable. None of these will satisfy all parties concerned. But these are not the only ugly options. Looking around the nation at other cities facing similar circumstances, one finds three other processes being used that are equally unacceptable with varying degrees of difficulty and costs. These are as follows: Referendum vote of the citizens to force renegotiation. This is being done in cities like San Diego and San Jose, Ca. with both these municipalities having borne the cost of the referendum process and now having to absorb the cost of litigation to defend the voters action. Bankruptcy, the nuclear option for cities, which allows for local government to set aside contract obligations and enter into new talks under the supervision of a Federal Bankruptcy judge. This opens up a Pandoras box on many other issues beyond those raised by Boca Citizens for Fiscal Responsibility and may result in many unintended consequences; and State receivership, another nuclear option which will take away the decision making powers from our elected officials and places them with a state appointee. Certainly not an option fa vored by anyone currently involved in this argument. The Band-Aid approach. All of these beg the question of how we got here and how we get out of this fiscal mess. Correcting the mess will take an adult conversation from all parties concerned; recognition that there are not the funds to continue on the current course; and, a realization that ultimately any financial resolution will have to be borne by current and future citizens of Boca Raton. So stay tuned, stay in touch with the upcoming action items and stay involved with the decisions of our elected officials. Representative government is based upon the premise that the collective wisdom of the elec torate results in a collective wisdom of the elected who are charged with voting the vote in the collective citizens best interest. One can only hope that representa tive government actually works as designed. We citizens deserve to have our leaders take on the hard issues. It is our job to make sure they know how we feel Thank you Boca Citizens for Fiscal Responsibility for suggesting that all Boca citizens tell our elected officials their feelings by phone, by fax, and in person.. See you July 10th..dont be late.

Federal Highway after emergency dispatchers received the 9-1-1 call. Fire crews arrived within minutes and noticed light smoke coming from the barber shop storefront and black smoke showing from the rear of the building. Fire crew located the fire in the snack room of the shop and quickly extinguished it. Smoke did spread to the adjacent pet store and firefighters had to use large fans to remove the smoke.

The cause of the fire is under investigation. 3 1 5 2 6 9 3 8 8 2 & PBC Water Utilities Department to Flush Lines Starting July 16To maintain high water quality in the countys water distribution system, Palm Beach County Water Utilities Department will temporarily modify the disinfection process used to treat drinking water. The county will be using a somewhat stronger disinfection process to produce chlorine residual instead of a chloramine residual from July 16 to August 16, 2012. The county will also increase hydrant flushing during this time. This is a preventative maintenance process. Customers served by the Palm Beach County Water Utilities Department may notice a slight chlorine taste or odor in their tap water during this period. These temporary conditions will not cause adverse health effects. If you are especially sensitive to the taste or odor of chlorine, keep an open container of drinking water in your refrigerator for a few hours to allow the chlorine to dissipate. Users of home dialysis machines, owners of tropical fish and managers of stores and restaurants with fish and shellfish holding tanks are advised to seek professional advice as the method for removing chlorine residuals differs from removing chloramine residuals from tap water.

23 Edition 105 for news 24/7 go to bocaratontribune.com Jul5, 2012 through July 11, 2012www.bocaratontribune.com By Skip Sheffield Boca Raton is filled with restaurants of familiar nationalities: Italian, French, Greek, Spanish, Mediterranean, Jewish, but there is nothing quite like Kin Noodle Bar, 200 S. Federal Highway, Boca Raton. Smiling owner-chef Ben Kin is from Thailand. He has been in the USA only seven years, and Kin Noodle Bar only just opened in March. Kin first settled first in San Francisco, which has a large Asian population. It was there he learned how to speak Eng lish and started making his signature Pad Thai noodles for BKK Bangkok Restaurant. In 2009 he opened his first restaurant, Kin Noodle Bar, in Chicago. It was such a success he opened a second Chicago restaurant nine months later. Kin has a cousin named Pat Chan who arrived in the USA 12 years ago and opened a Thai restaurant in Jupiter. Pat invited Ben to visit, and encouraged her relative to open a restaurant in Florida. We looked at several different loca tions, but Boca Raton seemed to be a great location, says Pat. Nobody is doing authentic Thai noodles, and Ben is the best. Its time for something different in Boca. Ben sold his second restaurant in Chicago and signed a lease for his current location. Ben Kin creates from scratch all the noodles on the menu, including Thai, egg noodle, rice noodle and Japanese Udon. Ben Kin has been making noodles and cooking since he was a child at the side of his grandmother in Bangkok. Its a lot of work, but I love it, says Ben. In the future we will have more va rieties of noodles I will add to the menu. As it is there is quite a variety of items on the Kin Noodle menu, and each noodle dish is distinctly different. Thai cuisine is big on fresh seafood, and Ben Kins creations are exquisite. There are more than a dozen appetizers, including such unusual items as soft shell crab, deep friend oc topus in takoyaki sauce, crunchy calamari and boneless duck on a bed of spinach. Soups include Miso as mild or spicy as you want, veggie, chicken or shrimp Tom Yum, chicken or shrimp Tom Kha and Udon with portabella mushroom, chicken and fresh spinach. A half-dozen salads made with the freshest ingredients whet the appetite. Noodles can be served with chicken, beef veggie, tofu, shrimp, squid or scallops. The wait staff will always ask about sea soning, because Thai cuisine can be quite spicy and hot. Whether its fried rice, Kin noodle, Ra men or one of Kins specialties, the ingredients will be wonderfully fresh and prepared with care. Prices are surprisingly reasonable (the most expensive dinner on the menu is $19.95), and there are daily specials. Ben just loves to cook and he works so hard, says Pat. We want to create something different that people really love. Judging by just two visits to Kin Noodle, there is much to love and much to return for. Kin Noodle delivers in east Boca from Yamato Road south to SW 10th Street and west to Powerline Road.

Gora has been certified by the Board of Specialization of The Florida Bar as a specialist in family and matrimonial law and is a partner with Shapiro Blasi Wasserman & Gora P.A. in Boca Raton. Mr. Gora may be reached at mailto:mhgora@ sbwlawfirm.com. State of AffairsQ I am a 92 year old man married to an 84 year old woman for 20 years. I have been diagnosed with stage four cancer of my pancreas. My doctor has told me that I have only a couple of months to live. We lived in Atlanta until last week, when I decided that I wasnt feeling well and could not live with the wife any more. I packed all my stuff and flew to West Palm Beach to live with my daughter. Just before I married the last time I bought a house in Buckhead which is now worth about three times what I paid for it. It has always remained in my name. There was a mortgage on it, but we paid it off with a lot of my savings and some of hers. We improved the house with new bathrooms and the like and both chipped into to pay for it. She still drives a car that is in my name. I dont drive any more. I have a stock portfolio left on which we have been living for many years. We did OK and still have a million or so. I earned every penny in that stock, but she used to be my broker and handled the money before and after we were married. We do not owe anyone any money. Id like to divorce her before I die so she wont get all that I have. In addition to my daughter I have a son. My will says it all goes to the wife unless she dies first; then it is divided between my children. Can I divorce here in Florida? What could she get from me? A Since the last place that you lived with you wife was in Georgia it is likely that your divorce case will have to proceed in Georgia in order for a court to have the jurisdiction over you and over your property. However, divorce is divisible. If you file for divorce in Florida before your wife files in Georgia your marriage can be ended here, but the judge cannot divide your property here. If you change your will to leave all to your children and pass away before the Georgia Court could divide your property you may achieve your goal to disinherit your wife. I cannot tell you what the exact result would look like if the Georgia judge had the ability to divide your marital estate before your death because the Georgia law may be different than the Florida. However, if Florida divorce law applies a part of the equity in your home and your brokerage account would probably be found to be marital property and divided equally. I also cannot tell you whether the Georgia law provides for a percentage of your estate to go to your wife even if it was your intent to disinherit her. However if Florida probate law applies after your death your wife will receive 30 percent of your estate. You need to retain a Georgia attorney and a Florida trust and estates attorney to give you the final answer to your questions.Columnists Intentional FreedomHappy Fourth of July! What a great time to celebrate our freedom and enjoy our independence as Americans. But I must ask if there is more to our citizenship than simply celebration and enjoyment? I am not against those concepts, I am all for a good party like the rest of us, I just have a sense that we, at times, miss the whole point for the sake of a once a year BBQ and some fireworks. I do the same thing when it comes to my faith. The Apostle Paul seemed to somehow know I might miss the big picture when he wrote his letter to the Galatians as he said, For you were called to freedom, brothers. Only do not use your freedom as an opportunity for the flesh, but through love serve one another. I need this everyday, because I will be tempted to make my freedom about me and miss the whole point. Two key observations that can help us reorient around service before we lose ourselves to consumerism. First, freedom always has a cost. For Americans, it was paid for by the life and death of many who believed in something far greater than their own comfort. For those who follow Jesus, it was paid for by the life and death of Christ who went to a cross and took the penalty that our sin had earned. Remembering the severe cost of freedom will bring about humility and gratitude that leads to a heart that serves. Second, freedom always has a purpose. For Americans, we have independence for the sake of humanity. We believe it best represents how our Creator has designed us to function. For those who follow Jesus, we have been set free from our sin for the sake of loving God and loving others. Remembering the purpose of freedom will bring about intentionality and purpose that leads to a heart that serves. Freedom is much like the biblical concept of grace. An undeserved gift meant to transform the recipient. I did not earn the sacrifice of the men and women who willingly gave of their lives so that I could live in freedom. I did not earn the sacrifice of Jesus who willingly gave his life so that I could live in eternal freedom. And the wonder of grace is that it never leaves you where it found you. Nothing motivates like grace. So this Fourth of July I invite you to celebrate, enjoy, but most of all serve those in need around you. I challenge you to be known more as a servant rather than one who is served. Look for ways to use your freedom for more than just your personal comfort and convenience. May the eternal truths of the Scriptures be our catalyst in understanding and living out our freedom in such a way that shape our hearts after the One who grants true freedom.FAITHBy Casey Cleveland Casey Cleveland, is pastor at The Avenue Church, Delray Beachs fastest-growing new church.

Chun comes to FAU after spending over 15 years at Ohio State University where he held many job titles. His latest role at Ohio State before accepting the FAU position was the Executive Associate Athletics Director for External Relations. He has helped oversee a nationally prominent [athletics] department, said FAU President Dr. Mary Jane Saunders. He has covered all aspects of development and marketing. Chun replaces Craig Angelos, whose contract was not renewed by FAUs Board of Trustees on March 21. Chun holds a bachelors of arts degree in journalism from Ohio State University and a masters degree in sports leadership from Duquesne University. We have the confidence that he will take our athletics department to the next level of development, President Saunders said. Chun stated that the people within the administration and the athletics department were one of the aspects that convinced him to accept the position at FAU. Successful organizations are defined by people. You can sense the pride and the purpose with the people at Florida Atlantic Chun said. Once you get to know the people and everyone associated with this University, its not a hard decision. You hope they want you. I am lucky that they wanted me. Chun stated that he wants the message of the athletics department is to embrace comprehensive excellence, increased focus on serving the student-athlete and to embrace a higher purpose for the athletic department and the University. In athletics, we have the responsibility of enhancing the brand of Florida Atlantic University, Chun said. Our success should be a direct reflection of this growing and dynamic institution. We will embrace our responsibility for being an economic stimulator for this campus, the City of Boca Ra ton and entire South Florida region. The biggest selling point on Chun to President Saunders was Chuns experience. Some the things that we were looking for were expertise in fund-raising, marketing, and ticketing. He certainly has a proven track record, President Saunders said. This was an easy decision. Pats background really matched up with the needs that we have to move our great university forward. Throughout the search process, Melissa Dawson currently the Senior Associate AD-Internal Operations/Senior Womens Administrator played a vital role as the Interim Athletics Director while the University was conducting its search. She led the department in completing the contract for a three-game series in football with the University of Miami, a contract extension with mens basketball head coach Mike Jarvis, hiring volleyball head coach Fernanda Nelson and womens basketball head coach Kellie Lewis-Jay. She has done an excellent job in keeping everything moving forward, President Saunders said. We greatly appreciate her hard work and dedication to FAU athletics and FAU. Although the University opened a new $70 million football stadium last fall, other facilities on campus like FAU Arena and FAU Baseball Stadium are in need for renovations. Chuns focus in the coming days is to take a wider examination of the athletics department. We will take a look at everything, Chun said. We will get together our strategic plans. My first 100 days in the office will really be going to listening to our staff. We will sit down as a staff and we are going to gather some information to get FAU going to the next level.
30 Edition 105 July 5, 2012 through July 11, 2012www.bocaratontribune.com SPORTS East/West Boca Raton, FL SportsMajor League Lacrosse Puts on Show in 2012 All-Star GameBy: Malcolm Shields Entering the grounds of FAU Stadium on June 30, you would have thought that you were heading for a Saturday night football game under the lights as fans were tailgating in the parking lots and numerous young fans were playing in pick-up games around the stadium. This night was not about football. On this evening, lacrosse fans descended onto the campus of Florida Atlantic University to witness the 2012 Major League Lacrosse All-Star Game. The players did not disappoint as the fans were entertained with behind-the-back shots, no-look passes and a down-to-thewire finish. Steven Brooks scored the game-winning goal with 56 seconds remaining in the fourth quarter to give team Old School an 18-17 victory over team Young Guns. Stephen Berger led team Old School with three goals and was named game MVP. Casey Powell and Brian Langtry followed with two goals apiece. For team Young Guns, Peet Poillon and Jeremy Sieverts tallied two goals in the game. The entire weekend appeared to be a success for the 12-year-old league. They got it. They were lacrosse fans, said league cofounder Jake Steinfeld said of the crowd. The official announced crowd was 4,821. The players wanted to show the fans the MLL. The second half was just as competitive as the first two quarters of the game as team Old School held onto a slim 15-13 lead after three quarters. In the fourth quarter, a twopoint shot by Brian Farrell tied the game at 17-17 with 3:42 remaining in the game. From that point on, team Old School controlled the pace and was able to secure the game-clinching goal. The players put on an entertaining display for the fans during halftime as Kyle Hartzell won the Fastest Shot Contest. Joel White won the Gauntlet Competition and Brett Queener received the loudest cheers as he won the Freestyle Contest. In the second quarter, the action went back-and-forth as both teams had quality shots on goal. Team Young Guns made a strong push midway in the half as team Young Guns outscored team Old School 5-4 in the second quarter to send the game tied at 9-9 at halftime. Team Old School displayed their savvy early in the first quarter as they jumped out to a 3-0 lead by goals from Chris Eck, Berger and Langtry. Team Young Guns countered with goals by and Sieverts on a two-point shot behind the arc and Poillons shots on goal. After team Young Guns tied the game at four late in the quarter, Powell who is also the Director of Lacrosse at Saint Andrews School scored his first goal of the game to give team Old School a 5-4 lead to end the first quarter. For those involved, the weekend was a success to display the game of lacrosse. This was awesome. It was a very special night and a great weekend, Powell said. The fans were surrounded by the worlds best players and they put on quite a show. Do the results of this weekend strengthen the chances of a franchise coming to the region? Its a great sign. We want to do it the right way, Steinfield said. Everything is pointing in the right direction.Mark Anderson Named NASL Offensive Player of the WeekThe NASL has named Fort Lauderdale Strikers midfielder Mark Anderson Offensive Player of the Week.

The tournament will be held on July 8 from 12 p.m. to 5 p.m. at the Isle Casino at Pompano Park in Pompano Beach. All proceeds raised will benefit the Wilkins Parkinsons Foundation.

Thankfully the Isle got behind us 100 percent, said Executive Director and Co-Founder of the Wilkins Parkinsons Foundation, Daniel Wilkins. They have been great to work with. The Isle Casino has a history of working with non-profit organizations. We [have] run charity events before, said Director of Poker Operations at the Isle Casino Mike Smith.

Major League Lacrosse Debuts in South FloridaBy: Guadalupe Monarrez On June 30th, FAU stadium became the 11th venue to host a Major League Lacrosse All Star Game. Saturday night marked the first time a Major League Lacrosse game has been played in the state of Florida, which allowed thousands of fans to embrace the first professional league to debut on the newly constructed field. Presented by Moes Southwest Grill, fans were able to experience various All Star pre-game festivities. Tents from sponsors lined the walls of the stadium, where crowds gathered before making their way onto the field. I am hoping to have a good time tonight, Boca Raton resident Evan Miller said, I have been playing lacrosse since I was 5 years old. Televised through ESPN, the MLL All Stars were not the only ones who showcased their talents on the national stage. FAU students Geraldine Fleurimond and Rebecca Guillaume gave phenomenal renditions of the Canadian and United States national anthems to kickoff the game. Once the Young Gun and Old School players took their positions on the field, fans erupted in glee. It is always exciting to come to a la crosse game, Boca Raton resident Kelly Powell said, this is the first time I have attended a Major League game and it has been a good experience overall. We have been playing for years and we are big fans of the sport, brother Bryan Powell added, we are very happy they chose FAU to have the event. Tied at halftime, fans were enthralled as their favorite players joined together to compete in the annual Bud Light Skills Competition. The competition consisted of three events, including the Fastest Shot, Freestyle, and the Goalie Gauntlet contests. I think the All Star game is just so much fun because they do a little bit of everything, Baltimore resident Louise Larson said, they just try to make it a good time for everybody. After a grueling second half, the Old School All Star team emerged victorious with a 18-17 win over the Young Guns. But, it was the overwelming support from fans that left an impression on the lacrosse league. Lacrosse is catching on like crazy, and now it is growing nationally, Larson said, it is expanding to more and more states. With the success of the 2012 MLL All Star Game, there is no doubt that lacrosse is well on its way to becoming one of the many popular sports among the South Florida community. Strikers Fall To Rowdies On The RoadThe Fort Lauderdale Strikers fell to the Tampa Bay Rowdies (7W-3T-5L) 3-1 at Al Lang Stadium on Wednesday, July 4th in front of 4,710 fans. The Strikers scored first through Andy Herron, but the Rowdies scored three unanswered gals to win their seventh game of the year. The goal was Herrons fifth of the season with Walter Restrepo earning his league leading sixth assist. The Strikers are now in sixth place in the NASL standings with 19 points on the season. It was a good start to the game, said Strikers head coach Daryl Shore. We felt like we were moving the ball well. Even though the score doesnt show it, I thought we fought hard and deserved a better result. The Strikers opened the scoring in the 19th minute when Walter Restrepo found forward Andy Herron inside the box. Herron took two shots at Jeff Attinella, eventually burying a shot into the net for a 1-0 lead. The assist makes Restrepo the NASLs leader on the season with six. The Rowdies would equalize in the 30th minute when Fafa Picault took a ball near the end line and passed back to Mike Ambersley, who slotted a shot far post just out of Matt Glaesers reach. The second half had several chances for the Strikers, the best one coming in the 58th minute when Conor Shanosky received a pass from a combination play from Andy Herron and Mark Anderson. Shanoskys shot caromed off the post and back out to keep the score 1-1. Then, in the 66th minute a throw in to the Rowdies Daniel Antoniuk led to a through pass to Tsuyoshi Yoskitake, who fired a half volley chance off the left post and into the goal for a 2-1 Rowdies lead. Tampa Bay extended their lead to 3-1 in the 85th minute when Mike Ambersleys cross got by Glaeser to be met by a sliding Antoniuk to complete the scoring. Fort Lauderdale defender Emilio Orozco will miss the next game after receiving two yellow cards in the match. Also receiving a one game suspension will be Tampa Bays JP Rodriguez who also was issued two yellow cards in the match. The Strikers will remain on the road and travel to Cary, North Carolina to face the RailHawks on Saturday, July 7, at 7:00 p.m.
