Police said the victim told officers she was pushing a shopping cart, which contained groceries and her purse, to her parked car. She briefly turned away from the cart to open the trunk when she saw a male run by and grab her purse.

4 Edition 106 July 12, 2012 through July 18, 2012www.bocaratontribune.com Story, photos by Dale M. King BOCA RATON Several hundred lovers of live theater gathered July 8 to honor a local stage icon and to raise cash to save the financially strapped Caldwell Theatre. Vickie Halmos, executive producer of EntrActe Theatrix and Palm Beach Principal Players, hosted a special aftershow tribute to Jan McArt, the director of Theatre Arts Program Development at Lynn University who is widely recog nized as the First Lady of Floridas Musical Theatre. McArt was honored at a Piano Bar/ Pizza Party at the Caldwell following the Sunday matinee performance of Jesus Christ Superstar. EntrActe Theatrix and Palm Beach Principal Players are performing the Andrew Lloyd WebberTim Rice rock opera 15 times this month in hopes of pulling the Caldwell out of bankruptcy. The tribute to McArt included a reunion of supporters and performers from her long-running Royal Palm Dinner Theatre, where an after-show pizza party was a tradition. Just as this production of Jesus Christ Superstar is reviving the recently-shuttered Caldwell Theatre, so too did we 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 Halmos. McArt sat in the center orchestra sec tion during the production, and met her fans at the theater entrance minutes after the conclusion of the program. She mingled with the crowd as visitors prepared to step into the next room for refreshments. The decrees of two governors named McArt as the First Lady of Floridas Musical Theatre. Many people do not associate Jan McArt with opera because of her impressive career in Florida. Her award winning performance in NBCs La Boheme led to an invitation from Maestro Arturo Toscanini to have lunch at his home. She made her New York debut in Mother of Us All, Virgil Thompson conducting, and premiered in The Abduction of Europa, composer Darius Milhoud conducting, in San Francisco. Through her Royal Palm Center Production Company, she established Jan McArts Royal Palm Dinner Theatre and Jans Rooftop Cabaret Theatre, along with the Little Palm Childrens Theatre in Boca Raton. She also started theatres in Fort Lauderdale, Delray Beach, Key West and Miami Beach, and produced many shows through her not-for-profit wing, Jan McArts American Festival Series. Simultaneously, she produced three na tional touring companies of The Pirates of Penzance. In 1989 she brought an original musical, The Prince of Central Park, to the Belasco Theatre on Broadway. She was a leading soprano with San Francisco Opera and NBC Opera and has starred in world premieres in New York. Having made her symphony debut with Arthur Fiedler and the Boston Pops, the Columbia concert artist became a favorite guest performer with symphonies across the country. She has co-starred with Liberace and Jack Jones; played well-known caba ret nightspots such as the St. Regis and Pierre Hotels, New York, the Coconut Grove, Los Angeles, and the Colony and Society, London. She also has performed concert engagements in Saudi Arabia, Tokyo, Hong Kong and Bangkok. Throughout her ca reer, McArt has earned awards and recognition such as the prestigious George Abbott Lifetime Achievement Award from the South Florida Entertainment Writers, the Palm Beach Posts One of the 100 Most Influential People in Florida for This Century, the BNai Brith International National Performing Arts Award, 278 Carbonell Award nominations for her dinner theatre, and a Carbonell Best-Actress Award for her performance in Nightclub Confidential. Her Royal Palm Dinner Theatre took its last bow in April 2001 after a record run of nearly 24-1/2 years. In 2004, she was appointed director of theatre arts program development at Lynn University. She is the founder and producer of the Libby Dodsons Live at Lynn series. EntrActe Theatrix and Palm Beach Principal Players will conclude their production of Jesus Christ Superstar with the following performances: + 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. This ticket price is inclusive of all fees. To purchase tickets call 877.710.7779. BOCA RATON -Nancy Marshall, president of the Arthur R.

Box 970593 Boca Raton, FL 33497Dear Dale, The summers best wine tasting event is a bit earlier this year the Wine & All That Jazz event. We hope the Boca Raton Tribune will join us on Saturday, August 4th, for an evening of elegant fun dining, dancing and tasting fantastic wines at the beautiful Boca Raton Resort & Club. It will be held from 7 to 9 p.m. at Mizner Center at the Resort. General admission is $50; $100 for VIP admission. Sincerely, Troy M. McLellan President and CEO Greater Boca Raton Chamber of Commerce To the Editor: The Wayne Barton Study Center and The Boca West Foundation are helping thousands of children in need prepare for school. The Back to School Jam is held annually to ensure all children are afforded an opportunity to have backpacks, school supplies, health exams to include physicals, immunizations and eye exams and other vital informa tion. The event will be held Aug. 11 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Wayne Barton Study Center, 269 NE 14th St., Boca Raton Sincerely, Bartons Boosters To the Editor: The Supreme Courts recent ruling [on Obamacare] will only add to the anxiety that the healthcare reform law created for Floridians concerned about jobs, our economic recovery, and access to quality healthcare. This divisive policy increases taxes, places new regulations on businesses and raids $500 billion from Medicare, and Im committed to replacing it with real solutions that will improve access to quality healthcare without sac rificing choices or creating additional burdens for our already struggling businesses and hard working Floridians. Sincerely, Adam Hasner / Republican Candidate for Congress District 22The headline on todays column is taken from an item on the Greater Boca Raton Chamber of Commerce website announcing the upcoming, much anticipated Boca Festival Days to be held throughout the month of August. For years, this has always been at the top of my list of favorite summer activities. I was checking out the website to see what is happening this year, and I found there are lots of activities that please. Theres a great back-story for all the ac tivities. Boca Festival Days is the Chambers outreach to the non-profit community. Nonprofit Boca Chamber members join forces with for-profit Chamber members to hold funfilled events. The goal is to raise awareness and funds for the non-profit members philanthropic efforts. All month long, residents of Boca Ra ton will travel from event to event, participating in everything that is great about this City from the smaller events to the grand. Lots of activities are already scheduled. But there is apparently still time to organize a list-minute event. Lets see, so what is on the list. Well, it appears one of the first actually happens at end of this month. On July 30, the Second Annual White Coats-4-Care Reception sponsored by Kaye Communications, will be held at the Bridge Hotel. This special program benefits Florida Atlantic Universitys Charles E. Schmidt College of Medicine. Lets check the first week or so and see whats on tap. Oh, and speaking of taps, the Chamber will tap a few bottles of vino at the annual Wine and All That Jazz activity. Usually an end-of-summer program, this year it is one of the first, scheduled for Aug. 4 So the first week shapes up like this: Aug. Kidsafe Luncheon Seminar Kidsafe Foundation and NCCI 12:00 p.m. to 1:00 p.m. August 1 BIG ART Miniature Golf 5:30 to 8:00 p.m. August 3 G.W. Bailey First Responders Charitable Fund, Inc.Honorable Men in Uniform Bartending at Mortons 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. August 4 Wine & All That Jazz 6:00 to 10:00 p.m. August 9 Cocktails for a Cause 6 to 8 p.m. OK, great start. Lets take a look at the next couple of weeks: August 10 Habitats 2012 Mr. Stud Finder Bachelor Auction 5:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. August 11 Health and Fitness EXPO with Florida Blue and FitWize4Kids 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. August 11 Wine Tasting Safari 7:00 to 9:00 p.m. August 17 Bocas Ballroom Battle 6:00 p.m. August 19 Party with Promise Family Promise and the Chamber Ambassadors 5:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. August 20 So You Think You Can Sing? Karaoke Contest Hospice of Palm Beach County 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. August 22 Hospice by the Sea Evening Not to tip my hand, but I really, really enjoy the Ballroom Battle. My wife has turned me into a big fan of Dancing with the Stars, and this is very much like it. (By the way, Troy, if you are reading this, my wife desperately wants to be one of the dancers.)

It is a most frustrating experience to be stuck in heavy traffic, often paralysed and, thus, going nowhere! Far worse than that, are countless individuals with every possibility of reaching pleasant destinations, who allow real or imaginary obstacles to impede any progress. Yet, most barriers can be overcome; stop signs and red lights are only momentary pauses in the journey. It is better to concentrate on where you are, at any given moment the tangible here-and-now than some imagined locations that take too long to reach, if at all. Be present to where you are; bloom where you are planted! Focus on your point of departure and move forward from there! Aiming at mountain tops may be a desirable venture for some occasions; often they can be reached and truly enjoyed. Nevertheless, daily life is downto-earth! While one should soar like eagles in pursuing ones best, every personal effort takes place in the real world, with all its impediments and frustrations. Plan at positively affecting earths citizens through what you accomplish and exemplify through all you attempt! If you havent satisfactorily succeeded in life, perhaps what you still need is to take the first step to lead you where you must go. Remember that this journey is both individual and also communal. There are many things you can only achieve alone, while several other projects will get done as you partner with others heading in the direction you need to reach! God has mapped out the course we should take for safe passage and eventual arrival, in spite of unexpected detours and inevitable barriers, even if experienced differently by each traveller. God Himself leads His own into places or circumstances where no other person will go nor experience. Nevertheless, God Himself will always remain at the side of each of His pilgrims, whatever the level of their progress may be! Nevertheless, distractions abound along the way. And you wont know of certain obstructions along the terrain until you encounter them wherever they appear, at varied intersections in the course of the journey. Only remember that in the world you are just passing through; be not too attached to what is transitory, and of limited value! As a resident alien, function according to your true identity! Move in life with a sense of urgency, but never to the point of being enslaved by anyone or anything. You need not add any more to the rush hour already present in this mad world! Too much personal hurry, when there is no special reason for it, only leads to new, undesirable frustrations and unexpected delays! God may offer alternative routes for your journey on earth, but forward remains the only direction He desires for you to travel, remembering what Lloyd J. Ogilvie once reflected: There is no exit sign along the corridors of life. Every step you take, and every move you make, must be accomplished with conscious caution. But until your lifes work is over, concentrate on what you need to fulfil, and where you are supposed to go, even in spite of the worlds rush hour, anytime you find yourself affected by it! 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. By: Robert J. Tamasy Anyone actively involved in investments understands the importance of dividends. One of the selling points of many life insurance plans, for example, is the amount of dividends projected for appreciating the value of the policy. And when we invest in individual stocks, or in more comprehensive mutual funds, we desire to receive the highest and fastest dividend rates. We pursue other kinds of dividends as well. For instance, we strive to build beneficial relationships with customers, clients, colleagues, suppliers, sometimes even competitors, hoping these connec tions will pay dividends that enhance our business productivity and success. We invest long hours on the job, dedicated to proving our value as employees, leaders, and members of the corporate team. Our hope is that this labor and devotion will pay dividends in terms of professional advancement, increased responsibility and authority, and greater compensation. There are other kinds of dividends that cannot be calculated by a sales report, in an organiza tional chart or on a paycheck. For instance, dedica tion to physical fitness through healthy eating and a consistent exercise program can pay great dividends in terms of personal well-being, not only physically but also emotionally, mentally and socially. All of these kinds of dividends, for the most part, are self-oriented. We want to get a reasonable return for our investments, whether they involve money, time, energy, or talent. But can we reap dividends from pursuits where the focus is to give and not to get? Yes we can, which is one reason Jesus taught, It is more blessed to give than to receive (Acts 20:35). Here are some practical ways for doing this that can pay great dividends: Words of encouragement. In an age when we find ourselves surrounded by negativity, a few wellchosen, positive words can lift someones spirits a compliment, words of praise or appreciation for work well done, assurance that the moments difficulties will not last forever. A man finds joy in giving an apt reply and how good is a timely word!(Proverbs 15:23). Pleasant words are a honeycomb, sweet to the soul and healing to the bones (Proverbs 16:24). Gift of compassion. When someone is confronted with adversity or pain, a caring, comforting word can provide needed strength and hope. so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves have received from God (2 Corinthians 1:3-7). Availability as a mentor. Those of us that have traveled further down the road of life have wisdom, experience and insights that we can offer through mentoring relationships, helping others through what life has taught us. As iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another (Proverbs 27:17). A helping hand. Work seemingly impossible for one person becomes much easier when others committed to the same goal share in performing it. Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their work. A cord of three strands is not quickly broken (Ecclesiastes 4:912).The Quest For Dividends

Municipal NewsThe Boca Raton Tribune Municipal News By Commission er Burt Aaronson District 5 BOCA RA TON -No man is an island entire of itself. It is to the credit of my constituents, my staff, county staff, civic groups and others that we have accomplished so much since I took office in 1992. In particular, the relationships you have forged with my staff are remarkable. My Chief of Staff, Marylou Berger, has been my personal representative in the community. Her relationships with the Alliance of Delray, Coalition of Boynton West Residential Association (COBWRA) and the West Boca Community Council have been invaluable, not to mention her one-on-one relationships with so many of you. My Senior Administrative Assistant, Vivian Leiva, oversaw the distribution of hundreds of thousands of dollars that benefitted these communities. Of her many responsibilities and duties Vivian is most proud of the children and sports programs that benefitted from the allocation of those funds. My Secretary, Meaghan White, is often the first line of communication you reach when calling my office. She takes great pride in the fact that she serves the very district she grew up in. As my final term nears its end I look back in amazement at all the accomplishments we have made over the last 20 years. Here are just a few of which I am most proud: Introduced Solid Waste Authority bidding process dubbed Aaronson Method by fellow Commissioners saving taxpayers $76 million over a ten-year period Fulfilled campaign promise to eliminate the Site One landfill Derailed the Bullet Train (DEBT) in 1998 & Reorganized DEBT to reverse the 1999 referendum mandating a bullet train that would have run through the West Boca/ Delray area Leader in the success of the 1999 $150 million Agricultural Reserve bond referendum Responsible for the installation of illuminated street signs in District 5 Responsible for the County Commission revising the Countys Investment Policy to include the purchase of Israel Bonds Instrumental in bringing the Special Olympics/Club Managers Association of America Therapeutic Recreation Complex the only one of its kind in the United States Responsible for the County Commission adopting an Ordinance authorizing the installation of red light surveillance cameras an 8 year crusade near and dear to my heart after 6 people from Whisper Walk lost their lives It would be remiss of me not to mention the lessons that came from hurricanes Frances, Jeanne & Wilma. Marylou and Vivian came into the office the very next day with limited resources to respond to literally hundreds of calls. Marylou provided me updates so I knew where to go next, who needed what and what best to advocate for. I can confidently say that the lessons learned and the countless hours spent getting us back on track have contributed to the Countys readiness for future storms and other emergencies. It has truly been an honor and privilege serving you all these years and it is my sincerest hope that the constituency of District 5 continues to have its wishes fulfilled.Ex-TV Weatherman Accused of Having Sex With Two Minors; One From Boca Adam Hasner Raises $558,000 for Congressional Campaign in Second QuarterBOCA RATON The Adam Hasner for United States House of Representatives campaign in Floridas District 22 announced that the candidate raised $558,935 in the second quarter of fundraising in 2012. This brings the campaigns total amount of cash on hand to over $1 million. We are truly thankful for all the support we have received and look forward to meeting new people every day that recognize the importance of this election and support my candidacy, Hasner said. Campaign Manager Brad Herold stated, We will continue to build on this positive momentum because our eventual opponent will be well-funded. Adam and our team look forward to spending more time meeting with voters and supporters who believe in Adams vision that a badly broken Washington must be fixed to get our economy going again. Republican Hasner is the only GOP candidate in the race. In November, he will face the winner of the Aug. 14 Democratic primary between former West Palm Beach Mayor Lois Frankel and Broward County Commissioner Kristin Jacobs. Robert LopicolaPalm Beach County CommissionersVote to Hold the Line on Tax Rate for 2013Palm Beach County Commissioners voted this week to hold the line on the fiscal 2013 tax rate. They directed staff to submit to Property Appraiser Gary Nikolits a proposed maximum millage rate of 4.7815 mills for the fiscal year 2013 countywide budget and to advertise for public hearings on Sept. 6 and Sept. 24 at 6 p.m. in the commission chambers in West Palm Beach. The final millage rate can be lower, but not higher, than 4.7815 mills. The millage rate means county property owners will pay no more than about $4.78 per $1,000 valuation, the same as in fiscal year 2012. Unlike past years when county officials had to lop programs to make up for budget deficits, the county this year has about $800,000 to spend either for additional services, to increase reserves or lower the property tax rate, said County Administrator Bob Weisman. In other business at the July 10 meeting, commissioners took the following action: Island Way postponed selection of an alignment for Jupiter Park Drive/Western Corridor, to be known as Island Way, and directed staff to re-advertise for public hearing on Sept. 11. Brownfields adopted a resolution designating the former Pike Utilities property, a county-owned parcel on Charleston Road in unincorporated Lake Worth, as a Brownfields area to facilitate cleanup and redevelopment. The estimated cleanup cost is $482,000 with approximately $98,000 coming from the EPAs Brownfields Assessment federal grant fund. Action Plan adopted a resolution approving the Palm Beach County Action Plan for FY 2012-2013. Federal HUD grant allocations from the CDBG, HOME and ESG programs total approximately $7.5 million for Palm Beach County.

Riviera Beach Marina approved an interlocal agreement with the city of Riviera Beach for improvements to the city marina.

King BOCA RATON Henrietta, Countess de Hoernle doesnt have the attitude of a philanthropic icon. Nor does she make an issue about the millions she has donated or the 50-plus buildings that bear her name or that of her late husband, Count Adolph de Hoernle. And shed rather play bridge than about her upcoming 100th birthday. I hope I make it, she joked in her typically jovial manner. But the community in general, and the organization that gave her and her husband their titles, have joined together to celebrate the Countess, her legacy of giving and her longtime support of Boca Raton. The Order of St. John of Jerusa lem, Knights Hospitaller Commandery of Florida invites the community to join together to honor the Countess in several ways on her 100th Birthday, Monday, Sept. 24. Festivities include a formal gala presented by the Order of St. John to benefit local charities, a communitywide Red, White & Boca-Blue Countess Apprecia tion Day and the presentation of what is planned to be a record-breaking birthday card. Managing her charitable work from home since 1981 without a staff, and often working into the early morning hours, the Countess de Hoernle has given away more than $40 million of her personal funds to local Boca Raton charities while serving on 16 boards each year for more than 30 different charities in her lifetime. Serving as an inspiring role model of philanthropy with wisdom and grace, there are more than 40 buildings named in her honor in Boca Raton alone out of the more than 50 in Palm Beach County and New York. I feel that people who have money should give to the ones who cant help themselves, she told the Boca Raton Tribune in a telephone interview. Even as she approaches the century mark, the Countess is still giving. She said she recently donated to a project at St. Andrews North, adjacent to her home, where a meeting center for veterans is being built. They wanted to put in a few benches, she said in a strong, decisive voice. That wasnt sufficient. So I gave them money to put a canopy over it to protect the veterans from the sun and other amenities so make meetings more comfortable. The three-times-married Countess said the facility will be named for her second husband, Jeff Gass, a veteran himself who served in the U.S. Army during World War II and was later put in charge of all the documents for the Nuremburg trial. He died from the after-effects of malaria related to his service in the South Pacific. She said she knew the Count as a friend, having met at a social club in New York. But when her second husband took sick and was expected to die, I had to get up and get going and he [Count] sort of supervised the children while I was gone. That brought us closer together. She has two daughters and nine grandchildren; the Count had no children when they married. The Countess recalled that she and Count de Hoernle both arrived in the United States within a few years of each other. Born Henrietta Rach in Karlsruhe, Germany, she immigrated to the U.S. at age 18 aboard the S.S. Pennland in 1931 to live with her grandparents in Jackson Heights in Queens, NY and became an American by choice a point she stresses. After being twice widowed, she married engineer and entrepreneur Adolph, Count de Hoernle (who immigrated to the U.S. in 1926) in 1950. While living in Bronxville, N.Y., the Countess began volunteering at Lawrence Hospitals thrift store. While there, she noticed many plaques in the hospital stating, This room is donated by Inspired by the generosity of others, she encouraged her husband to do the same. Their first gift was to provide music scholarships to singers through the Liederkranz Club, a Manhattan social club founded by German-Americans to promote social and instrumental music. Following the sale of the Countys company, Stewart Stamping Corp. of Yonkers, N.Y., in 1965, they took numerous cruises around the world and visited Boca Raton many times before moving here in 1981. Renewed commitment to her charitable work became their new life in Florida. The Countess told the Tribune that seeing her name on a building she donated money to is more of an incentive for others to give. Its a matter of thinking about others. Give your community your very best.

Its a massive infusion of steroids into a faltering 40-year-old fable. It was just ten years ago that Marvel Comics Spider-Man franchise was rebooted by director Sam Raimi, with Tobey Ma guire as Peter Parker and Kirsten Dunst as his girlfriend Mary Jane Watson. They went on to star in two sequels. Andrew Garfield, who was so terrific in Social Network, is even better as this years Peter Parker. Though he is thin and slight like Tobey Maguire, there is something manlier about Andrew Garfield. He has an air of anger and danger, underscored with sorrow. The story begins with a prologue that explains more about Peter than we previously knew. Peter evidently idolized his fa ther (Campbell Scott), but one day when he was about 6 Peters parents left in a big hurry and dumped him off with his Uncle Ben (Martin Sheen) and Aunt May (Sally Field). Peter, now 17, is in his senior year at a Forest Hill, Queens science high school. He is bullied by Flash (Chris Zylka) the football hero, and he is in awe of Gwen Stacy (Emma Stone), a beautiful but seemingly unobtainable classmate. In the course of masquerading as an intern at the humongous Oscorp headquarters, Peter is done a favor by Gwen, who covers for him, and he goes off to do a little investigating on his own. Dr. Curt Connors (Rhys Ifans) was the research partner of Peters father and he is now the chief research scientist at Oscorp. Connors is missing his right arm, and he has become obsessed with the idea of regeneration. If a lizard can grow back a severed tail he reasons, perhaps a human could do the same thing. Prowling in one of the laboratories Peter encounters a mass of spiders and one gives him a painful bite. It was no ordinary spider but one charged with radioactivity. Suddenly Peter develops spider-like abilities to snatch things out of mid-air, crawl up walls and stick to ceilings upside down. Garfields Peter has a lot more fun than Maguire ever had with his newfound powers. Furthermore he has a much stronger romantic relationship with his leading lady than his predecessor. Emma Stone is wide-eyed adorable, but she is also feisty and a fitting match for her super boyfriend, who becomes a target of her protective father, police Captain Stacy (Denis Leary). There are some goofy things about this movie, not the least of which is the mutant villain. Director Marc Webb has the good sense to laugh at the sillier aspects of the plot. Webb directed the bittersweet romance (500) Days of Summer, and he is equally at home with action and the ways of the heart. Yes, Hollywood seems to be bankrupt of original ideas, but in this case they have improved on a tried-and-true formula. Welcome back, Spidey! Three stars FAU is offering a buy-one, get-one-free deal on the rest of its Summer Rep Shows through July 28. If you like the music of Jerry Herman (Hello Dolly, Mame, La Cage aux Folles, etc), youll appreciate Showtune: A Jerry Herman Musical Revue, which showcases Hermans bestknown and some little-known gems in the FAU Theatre. In the Studio One Theater, director JeanLouis Baldet has come up with a goofy take on Shakespeares romantic romp Loves La bours Lost. The setting is Key West in the year 1947. Why, I dont know, but it gives the cast a chance to wear exaggerated 1940s attire, which is fun. So is the kazoo chorus. Ferdinand, the King of Key West (Darrick Perry), is from Jamaica, mon, with ac cent to match. The pint-sized Princess of France (Lynn Wilhite) seems to be enjoying things more than her court. One of the drawbacks of pairing professional actors with students is that you can really tell which is which when the actors simply open their mouths. Holofernia (Equity actress Kathryn Lee Johnston), a professor of etymology and philology, has so much better enunciation and projection she seems to be out of another play. But any show that has the entire cast join in on the 1938 Sammy Fain classic Ill Be Seeing You is OK in my book. Tickets are $20 general admission; $14 group and $12 students.

Thats how long the EntreActe Theatrix production of Jesus Christ Superstar is scheduled to run. Revolutionary when it was first presented as a rock opera concept album in 1970 and a stage production in 1971, it remains revolutionary today. In essence, Superstar is a passion play set to rock music by Andrew Lloyd Webber with lyrics by Tim Rice. The play is different from traditional passion plays before it for its emphasis on Jesus as a man, and its take on his apostle Judas as a tragic, even sympathetic character. Some conservatives condemned the show as blasphemous. In South Africa it was banned outright. Now it is a staple of theater companies all over the world. The EntreActe cast, directed by Jessica Kris, is young and fresh and more age-appropriate to the historical characters. In this show the strongest singer is Anthony Nuccio as Judas, which adds even more impact to the character. Nuccio has phenomenal range, flexibility and power in his voice and as an actor he has a convincing ability to express his charac ters torment. John Parker is perfectly fine as Jesus, but his unruly wig gets a thumbs-down. It actually becomes a distraction from an otherwise moving performance. The third most important character in this concept is Mary Magdalene, played by Val Roche. A fallen woman who sees Jesus divinity, Mary also grows to love him as a man, as is expressed in one of the shows most popular songs, I dont know How to Love Him. There were some recurring technical problems with the sound amplification system which unfortunately detracted from some of the shows more dramatic moments. The vocal harmonizing by the cast is uniformly good, and the costumes are colorful and funny. The fate of the beautiful Count de Hoernle Theatre, as the building is called, remains clouded. It is laudable that producer Vicki Halmos and the Vicki and Peter Halmos Foundation have stepped up to make use of the facility, but it is doubtful any individual or foundation alone could assume the enormous debt that has accumulated since the opening of the new facility. If you value live theater, and if you love to see talented young performers giving their all, I urge you to see Jesus Christ Superstar while you can. You might be reminded of the shows timeless message and feel uplifted. Reserved seats are $25; $15 for groups and children under 12 and $10 student rush (with ID). Call 877-710-7779. Cast of Jesus Christ Superstar includes, from left, Anthony Nuccio, (Judas), John Justice Parker (Jesus) and Val Roche (Mary Magdalene).THEATER REVIEW As Seen by Feen Diane FeenThe Accomplished Among UsIf theres one thing about Boca Raton its that you never know who is walking beside you. There are doctors, lawyers, writers, retirees, real estate agents (and everything in between). If you havent met Dr. Susan Resneck Pierce, then you might not know that she is President Emerita of the University of Puget Sound, where she served as President from 1992 to 2003. What you also may not know about Dr. Pierce is that she elevated Puget Sound into the ranks of the National Liberal Arts Colleges and raised the endowment from $68 million to $213 million. There are a lot of things that Dr. Pierce did in her college president days (including publishing books and papers), and to honor her wonderful accomplishments a chair in humanities and a lecture series in public affairs was named after her. And if thats not a big enough feather in her cap, the atrium of Puget Sounds new Humanities Building is now named after her as well. You could say that this woman who walks beside you in Publix or at the post office is very accomplished, prolific and continues to contribute to the health and welfare of our colleges and society at large. She also recently published a book called, On Being Presidential; A Guide for College and University Leaders. That is why she will be the modera tor at the Authors & Ideas panel featuring FAU President MJ Saunders and Lynn University President Kevin Ross at the Festival of the Arts BOCA on March 13th. The topic will be: The Role of the College President in Preparing Citizens of the World. If youre wondering why you should attend this more cerebral discussion, Dr. Pierce will tell you. The panel should be of interest to people from this area because to continue to thrive, the United States --as both a multicultural society and a participant in a global economy-must prepare our current and future generations of college students to be citizens of the world. And one thing we do know is that Dr. Pierce knows what is important and what is disposable data. That is the reason university presidents, trustees and higher Ed organizations hire her as a consultant (her company is called SRP CONSULTING). In the past few months she spoke at the National Association of Independent Colleges in DC, the Council of Independent Colleges Presidents Institute and at a conference sponsored by the National Association of Administrators in Student Affairs. Lets just say that Dr. Resneck Pierce is one busy lady. She is grandmother to two young grandsons (six and eight-yearsold) and has a daughter (Sasha) and sonin-law (Steven Siegel) in the area. And if you ask her why she moved to Boca Raton eight and a half years ago, Dr. Pierce will tell you its because of her family. Born in the small town of Jamesville, Wisconsin, Dr. Pierce (who was simply Susan in those days) stood out among her peers. She was editor of the high school newspaper and as a youngster she created a newspaper and sold it to the neighbors for a penny a piece. Her parents Elliott and Dory Resneck always encouraged her to succeed, and her late husband Kenneth continued this tra dition of supporting Dr. Pierces ascent to the top of the educational pyramid. There is a lot more to this Boca Raton resident than meets the eye (or the spread sheet). At the National Endowment for the Humanities she directed programs that supported undergraduate education in the humanities; she participated in a project teaching ethics at Harvard, served as Chair of the English Department at Ithaca College, was a Visiting Associate Professor at Princeton, and Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences at University of Tulsa. Theres a lot more to her resume than that. But, what is important today is that she is prospering in her consulting prac tice (and is happy to take on new local clients) and is thrilled to be living in Boca Raton. When my late husband, Kenneth Pierce and I moved to Boca in 2003 I thought I knew the area well. But, to my pleasure I discovered that living here is an even richer experience than visiting. Early on, I taught a continuing Ed course in literature at FAU and met a lot of people who shared my love of books. My role as co-chair of the Authors & Ideas program for the Festival of the Arts Boca has brought friendships with people who care deeply about music, literature and ideas. Ive also learned to love Bocas sunshine.

22 Edition 106 July 12, 2012 through July 18, 2012www.bocaratontribune.com Over the last few months, the city council of Boca Raton has caused me a serious case of de ja vu by reminding me of my twelve or so years in public life in a city to our north, West Palm Beach. In the 1990s and early 2000s, West Palm Beach saw dramatic change in its character from a small town to a big city; from a quaint community to a center of commerce; and much of it over the objections of the early settlers and some neighborhood associations and leaders. The recent public debates here in Boca Raton centering mostly on expansion and growth whether by annexation or density are reminiscent of those days in council chambers that changed forever the nature and charac ter of West Palm Beach from the sleepy little town to a place that now invites the outside world to its doorstep. This invitation supports the need for an ever expanding revenue stream that often seems in contradiction with and at the expense of quality of life items important to those residents who settled for a life style which now may have gone by. Sound familiar.. Boca Raton is at that very crossroad. Influences for residential and commercial development are challenging the notion of downtown Boca Raton as a low density place; a city attractive to those who came and settled in this place due in large part to the limitations contained in Boca Ratons history and in its character. Arguments now are for growth through an increase in height and density. For growth to accommodate the perceived need to expand; to invite the outside world here for commercial, educational, and residential progress; and to ever increase the tax base that provides for the services that expansion requires. Another similar circumstance to West Palm Beach can be seen in this notion of annexation. At this years financial summit, city council members instructed the manager to investigate annexing up to ten western communities north of Clint Moore Road between Congress Avenue and the Florida Turnpike. Communities with little or no relationship to the traditional grid pattern envisioned by the citys founders and so well preserved in the archives of the Boca Raton Historical Society. Councilman Mike Mullaugh, a resident of a private community, was very vocal in his support of this expansion with the rest of the council appearing passive but interested in the tax revenue producing possibilities. Councilman Mullaugh argued that the expansion to the tax base outweighs other considerations. He went on to state that in light of earlier annexations of private communities another such annexation will not affect the character of the city of Boca Raton. I strongly disagree. West Palm Beach is the perfect model of why the character of a city will be indelibly changed by a continuing annexation policy towards private and gated communities not conceived or anticipated in the history or tra dition of a city. Yes, there may be increased tax revenues to be gained. However, it is delusional to think that these revenues will not be of diminishing return over time. This was dramatically exampled at the financial summit when a private community resident took the microphone and demanded that the medians outside her community be landscaped and beautified, a factor that I am sure was not built into the projected revenue calculation. West Palm Beach expanded dramatically to the west in the 90s to protect its water catchment area and to expand its tax base with revenues from those large private communities along the Okeechobee Blvd and Northlake Blvd corridors. Today, the revenues have diminished while unanticipated costs continue to rise. But.the single greatest aspect of character change to a traditional city that annexes private communities is in the political considerations these communities exert on the citys politics. One cannot win an election in West Palm Beach without the support of the private communities. This will surely be true in Boca Raton as well if the annexation policy as currently anticipated is approved. A private community, by its very nature, does not have the same considerations as communities on the traditional grid pattern. Private communities are self contained; they have there own recreational facilities; their own roadways; infrastructure; clubhouses, golf courses and on and on. Most importantly, they enjoy a competitive advantage at the ballot box. For convenience, over the years supervisors of elections have placed voting stations within the clubhouses of these communities. This subtlety provides political advantage to communities which vote in blocks and with ease of access not realized outside the gates. Current and future politicians soon realize that elections are a numbers game and those voting precincts that produce the most votes get the most attention. Believe me I know.I represented all the private and gated communities in West Palm Beach and made a science of parlaying that influence into benefits for my communities. Character really does count.. Some citizens of Boca Raton have been very vocal in their concerns for managed sustainable growth. They point to the current posture that downtown Boca Raton is desig nated a low density community and that there is a piece meal approach to growth currently in play. They are not wrong and should not be ignored. Now is the perfect time to have these discussions and conversations. Now is the time to face the ever increasing need for growth. Now is the time for our elected leaders to engage the competing groups to take part in the dialogue defining the future for Boca Raton. This is the perfect time. No election year politics; no political pandering; and, with no disrespect to the interests of all concerned. Developer interests should be viewed as good. So too are quality of life issues important to the residents. These are not mutually exclusive Therefore, I propose the following debate theme for the city of Boca Raton. In the memorable words of the now infamous former mayor of West Palm Beach, Nancy Graham, Congestion is good or is it????

I remember the first job that I had after being honorably discharged from the service. It was working as an inside salesperson for a lamp company. I was hired by the owner, who was also a veteran. What I didnt realize at the time was that he had a sales manager who did the hiring. Little did I know that the sales manager would resent my presence in the company because he was not involved in the hiring process. He made everything difficult for me. He fought me on every turn and made my life miserable. I started to oppose him and as a result I was fired. The owner apologized and he said the sales manager had the final word. After that incident, I knew I would meet up with other hard to get along with folks whether they where my superiors, other employees or acquaintances. I decided that I would try to not let them interfere with my career. These difficult people had a problem with themselves and I would not let their problems become mine. I decided not to overreact. Instead I looked for ways and means to understand who I was dealing with and decide whether I would want to continue the relationship. There is a saying in the retail world that, The first mark down is the best mark down. If the relationship is truly unbearable take the mark down and get out, otherwise you may find yourself just hanging around and withering away. I am certain that everyone sooner or later will have to deal with a difficult person, whether it is in the work place, people we do business with and others that we live with. It is important to try to understand why they act a certain way. What you need to do is to deal with them. The development of your people skills will lead to a successful pathway in dealing with these difficult people. Classifying in your mind the type of individual you are dealing with, may enable you to manage the situation and overcome the obstacles that you are confronted with. The solution is up to you and what you are willing to give up. The following are various difficult type people that we encounter and some suggestions of how to deal with them: be in control of every situation and will become angry and frustrated if things do not go along with what they expect or want. They want things done, My way or the highway! When its not their way, they show their anger and some of them become verbally abusive and downright nasty. Their tendency is to demean the one who is the target of their frustration. Letting them control you will result in you losing your own identity and a loss of confidence in yourself. Most people do not change only time changes and it could get worse. Decide how much you are willing to accept or keep your eyes open for something else. harassing people and criticizing them unjustly. Adults become bullies for several reasons. They like the power they receive from degrading people and that makes them feel important. Many bully because they can get away with it. The best way to cope with this person is to not allow the bully to make you feel bad about yourself. Work hard and maintain a good relationship with your co-workers. Discuss the situation with your superiors and let them know about your work. confident, full of themselves, and narrow-minded. When proven wrong they get defensive. Some times its best to let them think they know it all and they will expose their arrogance and ignorance for all to see. right for them. They will never be satisfied because they feel the whole world is wrong and they are right. Let them complain and ask them how they would solve the problem to make it right. They proba bly will just walk away from the situation. simistic and will tell you why things will not work out. They are very inflexible and difficult to please. Avoid becoming defensive. Dont take it personally. Focus on positive solutions. Try the yes but method. Agree with them and then show another solution. agree yet they rarely come through. At least you know they will not upset the applecart. Best way to treat them is dont ask them for their opinion. If you think you dont want to hear the answer, dont ask the question. you and take advantage of you to further their end. These people like to get your ideas and use them as their own. Once you experience their actions try your best to stay away from them. Getting to understand the type of person you are dealing with is vital in business and social relationships. Deciding if you can function in the relationship is a decision that you alone can make. The most important thing is to remember that these difficult people have a problem. Dont make it yours.

25 Edition 106 for news 24/7 go to bocaratontribune.com July 12, 2012 through July 18, 2012www.bocaratontribune.com By Small Business Develop ment Center At Palm Beach State College Do you have a product that youre not even interested in selling to small retailers? If you want to be big and do it quickly, the best way is to work with the worlds big gest brands like Walmart, Kraft, or Pepsi, to name a few. Its not going to be easy, but if your goal is to fast track your business cycle, here are some tips excerpted from Entrepreneur. com: Be unique. Make sure your business pitch is carefully thought out and offers value to your potential partner. Offer something that is clearly valuable to that big brand that they might not want to spend the time investing in or doing. Remain persistent. Successful entrepreneurs scour LinkedIn and alumni networks to find the right contact, some call WalMart 10 times a day, every day for three weeks until finally getting through and setting up a meeting. Big companies field lots of requests, so persistence is a must. Think big. You have to think like a big brand to partner with one. That means developing large-scale projects. Large companies dont want to talk about a $10,000 project they want to talk in seven figures and really big user numbers. Plan for fast growth. If youre growing too quickly to keep up with demand, youll lose money--and probably your partner. Have production partners in place. Prepare for scrutiny. Make sure your financial and legal affairs are in order. Audits are more common and frequent and you need to have proper procedures in place. Build on existing partnerships. Dont rush to find the next partner once you suc cessfully link up with a big company. Instead, expand existing partnerships. Rec ognize the potential of more revenue by exploring other channels instead of chasing new clients.

Like humanity, sports have rules that are comparable to the laws that govern our daily existence. Like life, sports have limitations such as out-of-bounds areas and foul zones. Sports have goals be they home runs, three-point shots from downtown, a hockey or soccer net or a touchdown. And we have goals educational, social, occupational, societal and familial, to name just a few. Theres another spot where life and sports overlap and that is in the areas of fairness and unfairness. Many things in life are unfair and many things in sports are also unfair. Usually, the sports unfairness involves strayed behavior as in the player who takes performance-enhancing drugs or throws a game to win money. Likewise, an official can purposely make incorrect calls, altering the outcome of a game to favor one team over another. I recently became aware of a gross unfairness going on in a soccer tournament organized by a very famous theme park in Orlando, not far from here. I learned that one or more of the officials who are supposed to make sure the rules are followed were doing just the opposite so that a local team could prevail, even if victory did not fairly and appropriately belong to that squad. Invited players (or ringers) were engrafted in the teams to make them stronger. What happened to the real team players? Are they happy they do not have a chance to be part of the team just because the coach wants to win in any necessary way? Is this the best way to prepare our kids for the future? Is this the kind of examples that we would like them to have? I wondered How does this unfairness call it cheating, unsportsmanlike conduct or attempting to give one player or one team the advantage over another impact on the players and the teams that are not involved in this inexcusable situation? Well, you can look at it in either of two ways. A negative person would say that unfairness does harm to players and teams often irreparable harm. It makes players and teams feel dirtied; it creates anger about their participation in the sport. It may even make them hate the game and leave it for good. A person who is more of an optimist might say that the player or official involved in the unfairness gives the innocent participants a lesson in how someone associated with an upstanding and entertaining game can make a mockery of it. The innocent bystander (player) sees the unfairness for what it is an aberration of the rules of the game. That vision will reinforce the players desire to stay on the straight and narrow so as to avoid the embarrassment and personal angst the illicit behavior has caused to the person caught cheating. There is another positive side to this terribly negative act of cowardice. Coaches, referees and players caught cheating suffer the ignominy of having their awards taken away or incurring sanctions that bar them from future participation in sports. So why do they cheat? The rewards of winning by cheating are financial gain and fame. These seem to be more important to some athletes and officials than the consequences of getting caught: financial fines and an infamous reputation. There are other ways to cheat in sports. During a marathon, it is faster and a whole lot easier to win if one takes the subway instead of running the entire course. There are always unsportsmanlike moves that debilitate, temporarily or permanently, an opposing player. Fixing games or point spreads for cash instead of glory has brought down many an athlete. Fortunately, most of the cases we hear about end with some kind of justice being done or at least an attempt at justice. While athletes and sports officials are hesitant to rat out a colleague, they must often take some type of corrective step even if it is personally painful. In the end, dishonesty in sports, as in other aspects of life, cannot be tolerated. Even if it yields some type of positive message, unfairness cannot be allowed to continue. We can only hope that someone with courage and conviction comes forward to expose the inequity going at the local school in question. When that happens, we can put this shameful incident behind us and move ahead, for the sake of the game and for our own sense of justice.

27 Edition 106 for news 24/7 go to bocaratontribune.com July 12, 2012 through July 18, 2012www.bocaratontribune.com bocaratontribune.comMoney: How Much Is Enough?Money tends to dominate our lives. Much of our time is consumed by earning it, spending it, saving it, investing it, giving it, even thinking about it. A major survey recently showed financial tensions and conflicts are major factors in more than 50 percent of all divorces. Fortunately, the Bible has excellent advice on money management. The majority of Jesus parables deal with handling material possessions. In fact, He spoke more about money than he did about either heaven or hell. This might be because more people seem to be interested in money! TWO COMMON MYTHS ABOUT MONEY: MYTH #1: Money is evil. Money is neither good nor bad. What the Bible ac tually says is: The LOVE of money is the root of all kinds of evil (1 Timothy 6:10). The Bible teaches that we are to USE things and LOVE people. Whenever we get that reversed, we get ourselves into trouble. If we love things, we will end up using people. God says people are always more important than possessions. MYTH #2: Money is the key to happiness. Obviously, that is not true either. If money guaranteed happiness, those with the most would be the happiest. However, every day we see and hear media reports that explode that idea. Jesus said, A mans real life is not made up of the things he owns, no matter how rich he may be (Luke 12:15). So how much money can we make without feeling guilty? God says you may make as much as you can as long as you observe four important limitations on your desire to acquire. 1. As long as it doesnt hurt your own health. Foolish people work themselves to death. Your health must take priority over wealth. Do not wear yourself out to get rich; have the wisdom to show restraint! (Proverbs 23:4.) 2. As long as it doesnt hurt your family. Homes fall apart when parents are too busy earning more. Kids dont need more things they need more time with their parents. You can become so busy making a living, you forget to make a life! A greedy man brings trouble to his family (Proverbs 15:27). 3. As long as it doesnt hurt other people. God insists that we make our money honestly and fairly. In fact, He says that wealth gained dishonestly will bring unhappiness. A fortune can be made from cheating, but there is a curse that goes with it (Proverbs 20:21). Its better to have a little, honestly earned, than to have a large income, dishonestly gained (Proverbs 16:8). 4. As long as you give as much attention to growing spiritually. Having financial goals is commendable as long as you have spiritual development goals as well. You need balance. The objective of life is far greater than just acquiring material things. I pray that you will prosper physically as (much as) you do spiritually (3 John :2). Keep this admonition from the Bible in mind: It is better, much better, to have wisdom and knowledge than silver and gold (Proverbs 16:16).Adapted from columns by Dr. Rick Warren, the author of numerous books, including the highly acclaimed The Purpose-Drive Life, which has been translated into many languages and sold throughout the world. It affirms the importance of having a carefully considered, clearly expressed purpose to guide everyday life.FAITHBy Rick Warren DIVORCE FLORIDA STYLEBy Mike Gora ColumnistsThe Boca Raton Tribune 561-208-6029 Michael H.

Mr. Gora may be reached at mailto:mhgora@ sbwlawfirm.com. Changes in the SystemThe architecture of the legal system in Florida underwent a sea change on July 1, 2012. No, it was not the acceptance of gay marriage or any other major change in your rights. The Florida Supreme Court ordered that all court filings, except the filing of original new cases, be done electronically, by e-mail. That is, when one of us files a motion or other document in the court file we must e-mail that document to the Clerk of Court, and to the opposing attorney. Shapiro Blasi Wasserman & Gora P.A. is ahead of the curve in this bold new step as having been chosen as one of a few firms in Palm Beach County to operate the beta model of this system for the last several months. When fully in place the electronic system will save the court system and private law firms thousands of dollars daily in the cost of paper, ink, current storage, and archived storage. As you know many of you in divorce court represent yourselves. At this point the electronic filing system does not apply to you. Eventually the system will probably apply to all legal filings by everyone. Clearly there will be glitches from time to time as the system matures and grows. The final result may be even more beneficial than we can now imagine. Welcome to the brave new electronic world of court filings. Columnists

For most athletes, the first step towards that goal occurs on the fields of youth organizations. The sport that is known as the Beautiful Game has taken root in Boca Raton and the fruits of its investment have produced scores of soccer players that have played either collegiately or professionally. Youth soccer programs like Soccer Association of Boca Raton (SABR), Greater Boca Youth Soccer Association or Boca United, and Team Boca have given thousands of boys and girls in the region the chance to hone their skills on the numerous soccer pitches in Boca Raton. Boca Raton youth soccer has produced world-class talent. United States Mens National team member and member of the Dutch club AZ Alkmaar, Jozy Altidore began his journey to the elite level of international soccer in Boca Raton. For me and my family, soccer is in our background. Soccer is the biggest sport in Haiti so everyone played, Altidore said. For me it was a no-brainer to play soccer. Along with providing valuable life lessons of teamwork and perseverance, local soccer organizations provide young athletes the opportunity to create memories and build relationships with teammates and coaches. Youth soccer is one of my best memories, Altidore said. It [youth soccer] was a huge platform for me. Along with participating on a travel team, Altidore was a part of a program that played in multiple state and national soccer tournaments. For many of the players on travel teams, the chance to play in major tournaments provides the opportunity to advance their soccer careers as many of the tournaments have coaches from the college ranks scouting for future talent. Our first priority is to develop kids to play at the next level, said President of SABR Hank Kreh of the travel program. We want players in front of college coaches. The association also provides soccer programs for all levels in recreational leagues and for participants with disabilities. Each kid receives a buddy in high school in Boca Raton, Kreh said. The league currently has over 150 participants. Over the past five years, the growth of soccer in Boca Raton has steadily risen. Currently there are close to 3,000 youths that compete in youth soccer. The growth in girls participating in soccer has also risen. Girls [participation] took a huge bump with the womens national team in 2011, Kreh said. The excitement of womens soccer increased with the presence of the Womens Professional Soccers franchise, the magicjack, in Boca Raton and the United States success in the Womens World Cup in 2011. In the past year, SABR was able to help nearly 40 girls to obtain full or partial scholarships to play collegiately. Kristy Whelchel and Lisa Gomez were both youth soccer products from Boca Raton. Whelchel played high school soccer at Spanish River, collegiately at Duke University and professionally for the New York Power of the now defunct Womens United Soccer Association from 2000 2003. Gomez also played high school soccer at Spanish River, went on to play at the University of Miami and was selected to the Mexican National team in the 2004 Olympics in Athens, Greece. I think that it is a huge thing, Kreh said of having successful players come from the area. The Jozy Altidore Foundation has also been committed to aiding youth soccer players to reach the next level. There is a lot of talent here in South Florida. A lot of these guys get overlooked, as I did, Altidore said. I think we need to shed light on them. For all of the success, the platform that youth soccer provides is invaluable to keep area youth involved in a positive activity. Its important to keep kids healthy and to keep them out of trouble, Altidore said. Strikers Score Three In Draw With CarolinaThe Fort Lauderdale Strikers (5W-5T-6L) scored three times, but it wasnt enough for their first road win as the Carolina RailHawks (5W-6T5L) scored in the dying moments of the match to finish 3-3 at WakeMed Soccer Park. Fort Lauderdales Walter Restrepo scored twice and forward Darnell King scored his first goal as a professional. The Strikers will look to carry their good offensive showing into their next game against the league-leading San Antonio Scorpions on Saturday, July 14, at Lockhart Stadium. The Strikers remain in sixth place in the NASL standings with 20 points on the season. The RailHawks struck first in the game when a Carolina shot caromed off the post and right to a wide open Mike Palacio who tapped it in. It was the second goal on the season for the former Striker. Fort Lauderdale would draw even in the 31st minute when Abe Thompson collected a forward pass and found a streaking Darnell King who wrongfooted Ray Burse for his first goal of the season. The goal was also the first as a professional for the Florida Atlan tic University alum. The Strikers would take the lead just two minutes later when Abe Thompson made a through ball pass to Walter Restrepo who beat Burse at the near post. After halftime, the Strikers would continue their strong play and extend ed their lead to 3-1 when a counter-attacking Darnell King made a cross just out of reach of two Carolina defenders and in front of Walter Restrepo who scored his fifth of the season. Carolina would get a goal back in the 87th minute when Palacio kept the ball inside the box and in the midst of several defenders found some space and beat Strikers goalkeeper Matt Glaeser at the far post. The match would make its way into stoppage time, and in the final moments of the added time, Palacio would send a cross all the way across the penalty area which bounced to an open Ty Shipilane. The RailHawks sub would beat Glaeser to tie the match and salvage a point for the home side. Fort Lauderdale defender Toni Stahl will miss the next game after receiving a yellow card in the match. It was his fifth of the season, so he will have to serve a one-game suspension for accumulation. The Strikers return home to Lock hart Stadium to face the league-leading San Antonio Scorpions on Saturday, July 14, at 7:30 p.m. EDT.

On a Thursday afternoon, I had the privilege of meeting a 22 year old that has accomplished more in his lifetime than most his age. Jozy Altidore is best known for scoring goals for AZ Alkmaar and the United States Mens National Team. But, for the Boca Ra ton native, it is the opportunities that he has been given outside of the soc cer field that have made all the difference in someone elses life. After the 2010 earthquake that left Haiti devastated, the young Jozy Altidore knew that he had to do something more for his familys native country. With the events that happened in Haiti is when I thought, I have to do something, Altidore said, I think it is important that I try to give back and help out a country that has given a lot to me and my parents. Consequently, in 2011, Altidore founded the nonprofit charitable organization known as the Jozy Altidore Foundation. Alongside his sister Lindsey Altidore and publicist Jeremy D. Pond, the foundation has worked relentlessly to preserve its mission of helping children in need. I think kids are one of my main focuses because my family, who were brought up in Haiti, always tell me stories about their upbringing and how hard it was for them, Altidore said, I figured I would try to give kids the opportunities that I didnt have and my parents didnt have. Over the past year, the foundation has worked collaboratively with numerous organizations. In the summer of 2011, the foundation hosted a 2 week soccer camp at St. Andrews School in Boca Raton. With proceeds benefiting the founda tion, children were invited to train with Altidore. How many kids are in my shoes when I was at that age, Altidore said, I said lets help these kids get exposure, and teach them the game. One of the foundations first projects, the camp proved to be highly successful and gave Altidore optimism for the future. I would like it to be a yearly thing at some point, Altidore said, we started it and wanted to see where it went, and it went very well. Recently, Altidore was given the opportunity to help Kashius Mostransky and the Make-A-Wish Founda tion. In a World Cup qualifier on June 8th, Altidore wore a bracelet that read, Lets Kick It For Kashius. Mostransky, who suffers from acute lymphoblastic leukemia, has undergone several chemotherapy treatments since his diagnosis. But, with the help of family and friends, Lets Kick It For Kashius has become a voice to raise awareness for all who suffer from acute lymphoblastic leukemia. A truly selfless family, the Mostranskys asked for all donations from the exposure to be donated to the Make-A-Wish Foundation in the names of Kashius Mostransky and the Jozy Altidore Foundation. When asked how it made him feel to commemorate Mostransky by wearing the bracelet, Altidore quickly responded, unbelievable. As athletes, in the position we are in, it is easy to forget what is around you in terms of people in that situation, Altidore said, I honestly felt like this was a way I could help. Nearly two weeks following the qualifier, Altidore made a guest appearance at the Football Factory at Legends and Jack Dempseys, which are both located in New York City. Altidore was on site to raise money for the foundation, while signing autographs and taking photos with fans. I always love meeting the fans, Altidore said, without the fans the athletes would struggle, they are the ones that give us motivation. With the appearances, the founda tion hoped to raise funds that would benefit the ongoing Haiti relief effort and the local community. We are trying to give back to Haiti, the rebuilding of the country, and to some of the orphanages there, foundation President Lindsey Altidore said, and definitely, trying to give back to our community here in Boca. In a recent partnership with Generosity Water, the foundation hopes to raise $6,000 to help build a well in Haiti. Being the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere, there is not a lot of clean water and resources for the people, Lindsey Altidore said. The well will provide clean water for more than 400 people. To properly maintain the well, Generosity Water will help educate villagers. They have classes that teach the villagers proper sanitation and hygiene, Jeremy D. Pond said, they want them to be able to use it propResidential & Commer cialLicensed & Insured CFC 1427238 CGC 1508546 rfnrf tbbbb ntbbt Any Plumbing Service CallBR TIIWith this coupon.

Currently, the foundation is seeking new ways to become involved with different projects and organizations. But, lucky for me, Jozy Altidore shared one of his dreams for the future. Hopefully everything goes well and I make the World Cup team. I want to put up projection screens in Haiti, so that all the World Cup games can be broadcasted throughout the villages, Altidore said, for that month and a half, people can forget about their worries and just enjoy the game. For someone like you and I, it is hard to imagine standing on the platform that life has given Jozy Altidore. But, through his foundation, it is truly a blessing to be witnesses to the difference it is making. If you would like to make a dona tion, you can send a check or money order made out to The Jozy Altidore Foundation to 21053 Shady Vista Lane Boca Raton, FL 33428.

31 Edition 106 for news 24/7 go to bocaratontribune.com July 12, 2012 through July 18, 2012www.bocaratontribune.com SportsAnalyzing the Rashard Lewis Deal to MiamiDid you really think HEAT Pat Riley was going to stand pat this offsea son? The rich keep getting richer and the strong keep getting stronger as the HEAT reached a deal with veteran forward Rashard Lewis on Tuesday. It is reported to be a two year deal. The HEAT has had a very busy offseason luring the likes of Ray Allen and now Rashard Lewis has climbed on board. We are witnessing a Seattle Supersonics reunion that has been made in spectacular fashion. If you thought the Ray Allen signing was a big deal for the HEAT, let me tell you that this signing is even bigger. Even though Lewis may be coming off the worst year of his career, averaging 7.8 points and 3.9 rebounds per game with a PER of just 9.37, there is no way the 32 year old can be anywhere close to being done as of yet. First of all, Lewis should be completely revitalized and rejuvenated playing for a true contender like Miami. Lets be honest, with the lowly Wizards, he didnt exactly have much to play for. Therefore, motivation should not be considered as an issue for Lewis based on any stretch of the imagination. With that being said, Lewis will be taking a myriad of talents with him to South Beach. He has the ability to spread the floor with his shooting, use his draw dropping length to defend and he even has a considerable amount of quickness and athleticism. Lewis is going to play a little bit of small forward as well as power forward. He is a multi-dimensional player and very versatile. Lewis and Allen are going to have an opportunity to spread the floor magnificently for Dwyane Wade and LeBron James. It is also important to note that the HEAT now has six above average three point shooters. Thats a far cry from what they had last season. Lewis could easily be inserted into the starting lineup or he can come off the bench. This was a key signing for the HEAT that should ultimately pay tremendous dividends. There is just no denying the fact that the HEAT is now absolutely loaded with offensive weapons. The Lewis signing should be viewed as an absolute steal, especially at the veteran minimum of 1.5 million. Ray Allen Leaves the Celtics to Join the HEAT What if I told you the NBAs all-time leader in 3 point field goals was taking his talents to South Beach? Would you believe me? Well you better believe it because next season Ray Allen will be playing for the world champion Miami HEAT. The HEAT applied the full court press on Ray Allen with LeBron James and Dwyane Wade constantly tweeting him. Pat Riley worked his magic and the HEAT made a very compelling case. Based on financial terms, it made the most sense for Ray Allen to return to Boston because they were offering more money. The Celtics offered 6 million plus a no trade clause, while the HEAT was only able to offer its taxpayer mid-level exception of 3 million. The fact is Allens deliberations went above and beyond what made the most sense financially. The biggest reason why Allen made this decision was because he felt like the HEAT gave him the best opportunity to win another championship. However, he also reportedly said goodbye to the Celtics in order to get away from Rajon Rondo. The writing has been on the wall ever since the Celtics reached an agreement with Ja son Terry. If Allen would have returned to Boston, he would have been blocked by a promising young player in Avery Bradley and a veteran scoring machine in Jason Terry. So it is also reasonable to assume that playing time also factored into Allens decision making. For the HEAT, this move makes them even more dangerous heading into next season. Allen will add an extra dimension and component to the teams offense. The HEAT spent two years trying to find a consistent three point threat to team up with Wade, James and Bosh. The good news is it looks like they finally found their guy. The New York Cosmos are Back; Storied Club to Resume Play in 2013By: Pedro Heizer The North American Soccer League announced this week that the New York Cosmos will join the NASL for the 2013 season. The club will start playing in the 2013 season and ticket information can be found at their website. The Cosmos will be the ninth team in the league, which will admit Ottawa as team No. 10 in 2014. Its been over 30 years since the Cosmos played in a professional league, yet throughout the absence the iconic global soccer brand has maintained a loyal and dedicated fan-base. Our return is a testament to the passion and loyalty of our fans, wrote chairman Seamus OBrien in an open letter posted on the Cosmos website. The Cosmos ownership group are committed to putting the brand back at the forefront of North American soccer. The New York Cosmos began play in 1971, spending fourteen seasons in the earlier NASL and during their peak they drew crowds of nearly 50,000 to Giants Stadium. Players like Pele, Franz Beckenbauer and Giorgio Chinaglia helped lead the team to a record five Soccer Bowl titles and made them the most successful team during the original iteration of the NASL. The Cosmos last won the NASL Soc cer Bowl in 1982. The Cosmos have a celebrated history with the NASL and with its rebirth in recent years, our entry was the natural first step of our return added chairman Sea mus OBrien in the open letter, We look forward on taking on some of our biggest traditional rivals like the Ft. Lauderdale Strikers and Tampa Bay Rowdies, and our ultimate goal is to play at the very highest level and we feel todays announcement is the first step in that direction. The history of the Cosmos and soccer in the New York City area are intertwined, said NASL Commissioner David Downs. Bringing the Cosmos into the NASL is a logical next step as we embrace the heritage of our own past and now reunite the Cosmos, Strikers, Rowdies and several markets with ties to the NASLs early days. Most importantly, we look forward to the Cosmos enhancing the quality of our league both on and off the field. OBrien added, We are delighted to return to our historic home with the NASL and bring the New York Cosmos back to the playing field. We are committed to running the franchise with the highest possible standards on and off the field, and look forward to putting together a competitive and entertaining team our fans can be proud of. Aaron Davidson, the Chairman of the NASL Board of Governors, stated, The team owners are thrilled to welcome the Cosmos back to their birthplace and home, the NASL. The Cosmos ownership groups decision to join the NASL is the ultimate validation of our efforts to bring back the league which laid the foundation for soccer in North America. We look forward to respectfully honoring the legacy of the NASL and Cosmos of the 1970s 1980s as we grow todays NASL and play our role in driving the further development and maturation of soccer in the United States, Canada and the Caribbean. There are still some rather significant details of the Cosmos return to be worked out, the biggest of which is where theyll play home games. There have been several rumored sites for a potential home, but there was a notable absence of anything official in the release.
