Locker rooms are targeted as well, because they are usually isolated ar eas with no surveillance. Best practice would be to bring simply your keys and wallet to the gym, and store them in a locked wall locker. Many gyms are now installing these types of small lockers, along the walls of the main tness oor, in plain view of many watching guests.

The Rev. Mark Boykin, senior pastor of Church of All Nations, said in a press release that he will hold a news conference and protest at 11 a.m. Saturday, Aug.18, in front of the Islamic Center of Boca Raton at NW 35th Street and NW 6th Way. Boykin claims in the press release that in 1999, the Islamic Center of Boca Raton received $600,000 from the Global Relief Fund for the construction of its mosque/Islamic center. The pastor claims that the U.S. Treasury Department designated The Global Relief Foundation a terrorist organization. Several items on the Internet said the organization has been under investigation for alleged ties to al-Qaeda Calls from the Boca Raton Tribune and messages left at the Islamic Center of Boca Raton were not returned. The ICBR must give $600,000 to the 9/11 Victims Fund; otherwise folks in Boca Raton will be going to a defiled Islamic Center built with blood money, Pastor Boykin said. There is enough evidence to warrant an investigation into this matter, said Joe Kaufman from Americans against Hate. Before the Boca Raton center is fully operational, they must return the money to the victims of 9/11. Boykin quoted a Sun Sentinel story that said leaders of ICBR are organizing an assortment of events for neighbors. Residents of homes within a one-mile ra dius of the center will get an invitation for lunch in the coming months. The center is within a mile of Boykins Church of All Nations. We strongly believe that members of the community must be aware of the history surrounding the building of this mosque, the pastor said.
3 Edition 110 for news 24/7 go to bocaratontribune.com August 16, 2012 through August 22, 2012www.bocaratontribune.com Community NewsThe Boca Raton Tribune Community News Back To School SpecialBy: Shannon Copeland On August 4th the Wayne Barton study center held its annual back to school giveaway. With over 7000 students and parents in attendance at the Wayne Barton Study Center, the needs of many were met. Approximately 6429 back packs were given out to students who arrived at the study center as early as 4:30 am. One parent even took her children in their pajamas and slept in their car to be on time for the give-away. Another lady came in a wheelchair with IV in her arms so that she could collect a backpack for her grandchildren. CEO Wayne Barton said, Its a blessing from God to be chosen to do this. He also stated, I am really excited about the opportunity to get children excited for school. Students received school supplies that will suffice for the school year; which included sta tionery such as note books, rulers, calculators and a backpack. Haircuts and hairstyles were given to the boys and girls respectively. Also, entertainment and refreshments were provided. Even the Fire Department had to be in attendance due to people passing out in hot sun. Barton was pleased with the turnout, It is a good cause because a need was met, and it was bad because people had to wait in a long line to get the school supplies. As a result of those long lines, persons started to pass out due to the heat and the Fire Department had to be in attendance. Bartons only disappointment was that there were not enough supplies to meet the needs of those in attendance and the difficulty he faces to raise money in Boca. The image of Boca makes it hard to raise money. We need more support, because wherever the need is, I want to meet it. I prefer to empower our youths and take preventive measures, not reactive measures. If you would like it make a donation to this good cause, please contact the Wayne Barton Study Center at 269 NE 14th Street Boca Raton, FL 33432 Phone: 561-620-6203 Fax: 561-620-6205.

What I Like About This bulletin board idea doesnt require much time to set up. Display the words What I like about and fill in the subject you teach (What I like about Science). On the first day of school, each student writes down on paper their favorite thing about your subject, and then these are stapled to the board. 2. Paper Portraits Each student receives an identical piece of paper, and then draws a full-body portrait of themselves, with many individual details. Each students portrait is attached to the bulletin board, with a title welcoming students back to school. For fun, have various school staff also create a portrait, so students have people to search for. 3. Month-by-Month Outline If your whole curriculum is mapped out for the school year, give a preview of what will be taught each month. List each month on the board, then display pictures or key words detailing what will be taught. 4. Fall Leaves Create a large paper tree on your bulletin board, and cut out large fall leaves. As your students enter your classroom, they write their name and a few things about themselves on each leaf (like what theyd like to learn this school year). 5. Reaching a Goal If you have a class goal or challenge, use one bulletin board as a way to keep track of your progress. For instance, a map in Social Studies class can be marked to show which areas the students have learned about. Or, perhaps, a community service project for your classroom can be displayed on a bulletin board with an explanation and a running tally toward your goal. 6. Famous Birthdays and World Events Keep a large calendar on your bulletin board to be changed every month. Update the calendar each month with important dates throughout history, as well as the birthdays of famous and historic figures. 7. Get Thinking! For a bulletin board idea that will get students back in thinking mode, display a variety of optical illusions and brain teasers. Offer bonus points for students who turn in correct answers. 8. Back to School Bus Create a large yellow school bus on your bulletin board. Each window can be filled with your students pictures, drawn portraits, names, or goals for the school year. 9. Motivating Words Find inspiring quotes about education (such as Education is the movement from darkness to light Alan Bloom, according to QuoteGarden), and display them on your bulletin board. 10. Back to School Checklist Use a large piece of paper and draw horizontal lines to look like a big piece of notebook pa per. Title it Back to School Checklist. Under the title, write a list of things your students should need to know about class for the coming year; it can include class rules, needed school supplies, or other importance pieces of information. Create a large paper pencil for added decoration. DM Ingrid Domingues McConville, Esq. Falamos Portugues Serving the Community for Over 17 Years

Shown from left are Morgan Costopoulos, Bryanna Wilbor and Maddy Miller see pics page B5 If you commonly open your childs lunch box after school only to find half of its contents untouched, dont despair; Sally Sampson, founder of the family cooking magazine ChopChop, has some tips to make school lunch planning and prep a little easier. Involve your child in preparing his/ her own lunches Kids who cook have a more diverse palate, says Sampson, who has authored 21 cookbooks. Cooking could be as simple as tossing a salad or stuffing almonds into dates; whatever the dish, Sampson has found that children are more likely to eat it when theyve helped make it. Dont force your child to eat a certain food. If your child is reluctant to try something new, just keep including it in his/her lunch box. Eventually, he/she might very well decide to give it a taste. Combine new foods with favorite ones. Doing this can help overcome some kids resistance to eating unfamiliar or just plain unliked ingredients. If you pair the hated food with the beloved food, Sampson says, it creates a conflict, and theyll want to try it. Shift (gradually) to healthier versions of familiar foods Switching from standard pasta to whole wheat, for example, or from whole milk to low-fat is a relatively simple way to boost kids intake of nutritious foods. To make new flavors easier to get used to, start by substituting a quarter of the total amount with the healthier food, then slowly increase that quantity until the original food is phased out. Apply the morning clothes principle to school lunches The popular trick that makes it easier for some parents to get their kids dressed before schoolyou know, offering them shirt A or shirt B instead of the whole closetworks just as well with meals. Do you want the apple or the banana with your lunch today? lets children express their preferences without opening up the entire kitchen pantry for discussion. Have a variety of food items readily available. This is a good one for parents and kids, and can be useful both for school lunch boxes and after-school snacks. For example, wash and cut up a batch of strawberries and leave the bowl on the counter; that way, youll reach for those first if your child needs a little something extra in her lunch bag or you need a quick bite before dinner. By Tawny Maya McCray Entering kindergarten is a huge milestone for kids and one for which they should be well-prepared. For some, its the first time they ever have been in a classroom setting, and it can be an overwhelming experience for them if theyre not ready for it. Here are some ways parents can help their kids get a jump-start on their education and make their transition to school a success. Take them to different places (zoos, parks, libraries, beaches, play groups), says kindergarten teacher Lani Salter. Read books and ask them questions about it so they are able to understand what the story is about. Count with them and teach them how to represent the numbers, meaning the value of the numbers. For example, one is one, whether its one little watch or one big house. Salter says teaching them how to write their names is also important, as is knowing the alphabet, not only what the letters are but also what sounds they make. If students know their letter sounds before they enter kindergarten, they are way ahead of the game, she says. Other helpful skills for a kid to have, ac cording to Scholastic.com, include knowing his/her full name, address, phone number and birthday and being able to identify rhyming words, manage bathroom needs, dress him or herself, follow directions, clean up after him or herself and listen to a story without interrupting.The Process of Getting InBy Ginny Frizzi It has been observed that life in general has become more complicated, but this is especially true when it comes to applying for college. The process, which can get complicated and nerve-racking, should begin with the student sitting down with his or her parents to clarify objectives, according to Steven Roy Goodman, an educational consultant and the author of College Admissions Together: It Takes a Family. This is a very important step, he says. You, the student, cant assume that your parents will agree with you about what you should study or what colleges you should apply to. In fact, your parents may not agree with each other on these points. Topics that should be discussed include possible majors and career interests, whether a liberal arts or career-oriented institution is more appropriate, whether the student will choose a college close to home or across the country and how to maximize financial aid. You need to flesh out these details before starting the admissions process. For example, one parent may not believe in womens colleges, while the other may refuse to pay for a liberal arts education, Goodman says. The student and parents should determine what issues they can agree on and what, if anything, are deal breakers. However, the student must assume the leading role in the college search. Someone has got to be the quarterback. Ultimately, the student needs to accept the responsibility for his or her education, Goodman believes. Ana Homayoun, founder of Green Ivy Educational Consulting, advises students and parents to work together to develop a list of institutions to which the student will apply. Make a list in September and the student should be thrilled in April when the admissions letters come out, she says. When it comes to completing college applications, many students include long lists of extracurricular and community activities to impress the admissions officer or committee. This, various experts agree, often isnt as effective as the applicants may think. It is a mistake for a student to try to present him or herself to the college as a well-rounded individual, Goodman says. Its a lopsided world. The days of a student dabbling in a long list of clubs so they can be put on an application are gone, he says. I advise students to do what you want to do and do a lot of it. By Amy Winter Bullying among children is a school issue that never will be eliminated completely. Communication and clearly defined rules may help to reduce bullying incidents and effects. Dr. Sylvia Rimm, writer of several books and of the syndicated column Sylvia Rimm on Raising Kids, says recent bullying could be seen as a bigger problem than it was in the past because of more aggressive bullies and bullied victims waging huge attacks on other students. And new technology tools, such as text messaging, Twitter and Facebook, make it easier to pick on children at a faster pace. Bullying has been around in schools for centuries, but in the past several decades, it has erupted into a major crisis in schools where administrators do not treat bullying as a major campus problem, says Dr. Robert Wallace, writer of the syndicated column Tween 12 & 20. Bullying reflects the violent scene in todays society. Bullying is defined as hitting, namecalling, exclusion, or other behavior that is meant to hurt another person, according to Stop Bullying Now! (http://StopBullyingNow.hrsa.gov/ kids). Bullies usually target weaker victims in order to gain control. This control makes the bullies feel powerful. Rimm says some bullies work in groups, and some attack alone. Essentially, all kids are teased at some point growing up, and it is important to learn how to deal with it, says Dr. Henry Gault, a child and adolescent psychiatrist who is part of the American Academy of Child & Adolescent Psychia try. However, if it continues and a young ster feels more and more alone and isolated, there can be serious consequences. Although bullying can occur at any age, Rimm says that the middle-school years tend to see frequent bullying incidents. Early adolescents are usually less confident in their sexuality and physical attractiveness and less secure with their friend groups as they go through puberty. Gault suggests friendships as a powerful element against bullies. Because bullies enjoy targeting single kids, a friend may serve as a protective tool. The goal is for a child to convey the message that he or she wont be pushed around. Ignoring a bully hardly ever works; the child still is seen as vulnerable. In milder cases, kids most likely can take care of the bullies alone. Stan Davis a former school counselor and founder of Stop Bullying Now! is co-leading the Youth Voice Research Project to learn more about bullying prevention. The research has found that telling them to stop or trying to walk away makes the situation worse with bullies. Back To School Special

7 Edition 110 for news 24/7 go to bocaratontribune.com August 16, 2012 through August 22, 2012www.bocaratontribune.com COMMUNITY NEWS East/West Boca Raton, FL Community News Boca Raton Chiropractor Care for PatientsBy: Malcolm Shields In an era where doctors and pharma ceutical companies attempt to encourage patients to take the latest and greatest remedy to treat ailments, Dr. Stephanie Goldberg of Allergy Chiropractic Wellness Center of Boca Raton has taken a different approach to treating her patients that struggle with lifes allergies, aches and pains. People today are starting to be more interested in natural alternatives and holistic alternatives because they are tired of being prescribed drugs as the only answer, Dr. Goldberg said. It is nice to offer people a different method that is effective. With this technique, the results are perma nent. Goldberg practices an alternative treatment to allergies. Known as Nambudripads Allergy Elimination Techniques or NAET, the technique combines the disciplines of allopathy, chiropractic techniques, acupuncture/acupressure and kinesiology to provide a natural, non-chemical care. The treatment was pioneered by Dr. Devi S. Nambudripad in the early 1980s. Its completely natural. There are no drugs. There are no needles involved in the testing. It relies on muscle strength for testing and finding a weakness when a patient is in contact with something, Dr. Goldberg said. It erases the brains response to the allergic item and plants a new healthy response. Some of the most common allergies that she treats are from eggs, milk, nuts, grains, gluten and environmental irritants like pollen. The basis of the technique is to help the body re-adjust to the problematic allergen a patients body struggles with. There is an energy component that everything has, Dr. Goldberg said. When you are in contact with something that you are allergic to, it makes your body weak. According to Goldberg, when she tests a patients muscle, a weak point provides the starting point for treatment. The treatment that Dr. Goldberg provides is very structured and incrementally works towards finding a solution for the patient. There is a very strict protocol that I follow, she said. There are a basic group of allergens that Dr. Goldberg treats initially. We build up the immune system and once the immune system is built up to a certain level, then we can attack the more complicated issues that a patient has. Along with treating adults, Dr. Goldberg also specializes in treating young kids. Getting adjusted for children is so important. It makes sure that their nervous system is running at its prime, she said. When that is happening, then their immune system is stronger. According to Dr. Goldberg, the adjustments that she provides have helped kids that deal with asthma and constipation. It is very beneficial for children, Dr. Goldberg said. Although it is difficult to determine the amount of treatments needed for complete success, according to Dr. Goldberg, many patients have had instant improvements once they began treatments. Most people start feeling some positive results after five treatments, she said. Dr. Goldbergs ability to connect to with her patients and her belief in her technique draws back to her experience dealing with rheumatoid arthritis and her struggles dealing with the side-effects from the prescribed drugs and chemotherapy she was offered. That has made me an excellent prac titioner, Dr. Goldberg said of her experience. I believe in the technique 100 percent because it changed my life. I know what results I got. When I help my patients, I know what they are going through and I empathize with them. I offer a treatment that I know that works.

8 Edition 110 August 16, 2012 through August 22, 2012www.bocaratontribune.com P.O. Box 970593 Boca Raton, FL 33497Al, Just read your column today in the Boca Tribune. Thank you for your fa vorable comments about Kaye Communications and the City of Boca Raton efforts to develop international exposure and business from Brazil. Look forward to seeing you both next week. As AlwaysSeriously Strategic! JON To the Editor: I, like many others, grew up and went to public school to learn how to become a well rounded citizen so we could improve and make a statement for our generation; to pave the way for future generations; to learn all we could about the country and the world we were born into. We walked to school and entered the classroom to learn how to think. Standing at the head of the class was a teacher who was there to guide us through our journey in education; to teach us how to read, write, add, subtract and multiply, plus give us the confidence and courage to become a successful adult; to guide us in education so we could excel in our endeavors, and in exchange to make America, our communities, our neighborhood and our lives more productive. It is now 2012 and it seems to me that education in America has become less important and football more important, along with sports being the easy way out. This is wrong. The public school system and the colleges are the most important tools we have to make our country great. The financial resources for the public schools and colleges have been replaced by monies being spent on wars and policing the world, leaving our children left behind in obtaining a quality education. Classes and extra classes are eliminated, standards lessened to make every student graduate, whether he or she is qualified or not. We need to change our priorities and bring back discipline and the rule of law; that the teacher is the law of the land. The guidance counselors should make sure every students abilities are discovered and guide them to the right programs. Lets bring back the respect that was always necessary for the teachers, so that each student is benefiting from the time spent in the classroom. The price of college should be affordable, and not crushing to a student at the end of four years, leaving them to pay back a $200,000 student loan. This is not the way to build Americas greatness. To our leaders: Stop all the lack of common sense, and lets get down to work or our country will fall just like the Roman Empire did in the past. Leslie Goldstein I have an abiding love for the poetry of T.S. Eliot. The literary world has praised him as the greatest poet of the 20th century and if they hadnt, I would. I think T.S. and I have something of a bond. We were born on the same day of the year, Sept. 26, making us both Libras, and, according to that Zodiac sign, we are creative, well grounded and seek justice for all. (Im not bragging I read it in an astrology book.) Thomas Stearns Eliot, born in St. Louis, Mo., but who opted to spend most of his life in the U.K., left a small portfolio of writings, but those poems and essays have had a powerful impact on those of us who have reveled in the exquisite imagery and bold pronouncements contained in his works. Eliot is best at coming up with stunningly somber tones and word pictures of grimy, worn-out roadways, dark alleys and lifeless futures. The Waste Land and Hollow Men are prime examples. But while studying Eliot in college, I latched onto a poem that has stuck with me for life. The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock has provided a signature line: I grow oldI grow old/I shall wear the bottoms of my trousers rolled. I have often quoted that line, particularly at times when life is difficult and things arent going well. I even quoted it while I was a young college student when the burden of studies adversely affected me. Im reminded a bit of Paul McCartney, who, as a man in his 20s, sang, When Im 64, not thinking that the time would come when he would actually BE 64. (And now he is even older). Coincidentally, Eliot has a connection to music. He received a posthumous Grammy for the song, Memory, from the musical, Cats, which actually was largely based on T.S. Eliots Old Possums Book of Practical Cats collection of cat poems. The musical generated many new songs, the most memorable of which was Memory. Sung by Grizzabella the Cat, the music and lyrics for Memory are mesmerizing and haunting, a passionate plea for renewal, a last effort for redemption. The lyrics for Memory, a poem in their own right, dont spring from Eliots cat poems as the rest of the musical does. Instead, the words were inspired by two other poems, also by Eliot, entitled Preludes and Rhapsody on a Windy Night. When these two source poems are read, theres that same sense of morning approaching, dragging the remains of the previous days along with it. However, that sense of regret and decay was then shaped into the character of Grizzabella and her classic song, Memory. But I hearken back to Prufrock. Who is this man who urged us to go, through certain half-deserted streets/The muttering retreats/Of restless nights in one-night cheap hotels/And sawdust restaurants with oyster shells? J. Alfred has followed me some 40 years now, telling me, There will be time, there will be time/To prepare a face to meet the faces that you meet. Its as if Eliot could see me: Time to turn back and descend the stair/With a bald spot in the middle of my hair. Could I be the victim of a literary stalker or is he watching us all? One might ask how much of this poem is Eliot, and how much is Prufrock? As is typical of Eliot, his imagery is forbidding, but he offers one line that we can read as hopeful: I shall wear white flannel trousers, and walk upon the beach. We can picture Jimmy Buffett clad thusly and walking along the sands in Key West. I hope to someday put my feet in that sand, but for now Im content to say Its 5 oclock somewhere. For now, J. Alfred is returning to my subconscious. It was nice to meet with you again, old friend. We will always be a part of each other, through your creator, Eliot, who passed away in 1965.

9 Edition 110 for news 24/7 go to bocaratontribune.com August 16, 2012 through August 22, 2012www.bocaratontribune.com By Douglas HeizerTHOUGHTS FROM THE PUBLISHER EDITORIALS & LETTERS East/West Boca Raton, FL By Dr. Synesio Lyra, Jr.POSITIVE LIVING From many public speakers people have been literally bombarded in recent years by what has now become a clich. The message in question is simply that You must leave your comfort zone While this is very true in some instances, it is absurd to apply it comprehensively, to all sectors of your life! After all, it is only from your comfort zone that you can adequately function in the world. That does not mean that the task you will be engaged in shall be simple and easy, but you need the security of what is familiar to you and helpful to you as a foundation for what you need to achieve with zest and ultimate effectiveness! Obviously, what the complaint leveled at many is quite reasonable and fair. It refers to challenging peoples inac tivity on account of selfishness, and lack of genuine consideration for individuals, legitimate causes, and other situations which one can help in altering them for the better. Its so true that people are creatures of habit and many are totally incapable of breaking free from certain patterns theyve chosen for themselves, in which theyve been stuck for a long time, even if ultimately unnecessary, or possibly harmful, to them. There are situations you can do something practical and positive about to improve, or even to eliminate, but that wont occur unless you are willing to be momentarily inconvenienced. World conditions, beginning in your own home and in your neighborhood, can improve if every person will start each new day seeking to respond to such questions as: What can I contribute to today? Where can I find a worthy cause in which to involve myself so that others can benefit from what Im able to contribute? How can I touch someone this day in a decisive, meaningful way? Certainly, there will be several situations for which such questions wont even need to be asked. Just opening your eyes, and being observant of what surrounds you anywhere, will offer the necessary, valid clues and incentives for prompt action. Look outside your windows, read the daily newspaper, follow the news on radio and TV, and even ask others whom you trust about existing situations for which you can render positive, creative assistance! All this you can do with the awareness and satisfaction that its not required for you to abandon all your so called comfort zones altogether in order to have a significant impact on something in need of your efforts, your expertise, your creativity, and more! Use, instead, your comfort zones to maximize the effectiveness of what you aim to achieve! 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. A lot of us spent considerable time in front of our TV sets these past couple of weeks watching scores of athletes competing in perhaps the biggest event they will ever encounter the 2012 London Olympics. The athletic Olympics are over. It is now time to begin the academic Olympics otherwise known as Back to School. For weeks now, weve been inundated with advertisements for school supplies as well as new clothing for our young ones and teen-agers heading back to class. Just the other day, when some of us were casting our ballots in the primary election, we got a chance to walk around a school on the first day that teachers were back in their classrooms. It was nice to see smiling faces on the people who will be instructing our children during the coming months. It was invigorating to see their enthusiasm and happiness. Its not just teachers who are getting ready for the rush of kids wholl be bounding out of school buses on Monday morning, the first day of school in Palm Beach County. Parents are also preparing to get the kids out of bed first thing in the morning, dress them, feed them and either get them to the bus on time or drive them to the school for the (usually) long wait to drop them off at the school door. Its such an important activity, and it should involve everyone. The young people have had a chance to rest up over the summer. Perhaps they went to summer camp or took part in a school activity during the warm months of the year. (Of course, in Florida, those months are usually pretty darn hot!) When kids return to school, theyll be greeting their friends again and probably sharing stories about a summer vacation with the family or a visit with a relative in a faraway state. Maybe some of the older children had a summer job that was particularly intriguing. With so many children flocking to so many schools, it will be important for everyone to abide by safety rules. Kids, pay attention to your crossing guards. They are there to protect you, so listen to what they say. The same goes for bus monitors. Pay attention to their directions. Most bus rides are uneventful, but its always better to be safe than sorry. You can even compare your upcoming school experience to that of the Olympians. In the case of the Games, hundreds, even thousands, of young people had to find their way around the big Stadium. They also had to make their way through the streets of London, a big and unfamiliar city to most of them. Safety first was the rule at the Olympics, and it is the rule at American schools. Palm Beach County has tens of thousands of students making their way through corridors to classes and cafeterias, auditoriums and gymnasiums, onto buses and off buses. They should watch safety officials and traffic lights to make sure they have the right of way and can move about without endangering themselves. The same goes for healthy foods. Eat a good breakfast and lunch, whether you do so at home or in the school lunchroom. If you have a salad bar, add some of that to your food. Meat and potatoes dont always provide the necessary nutrients. Fill up on tasty stuff that has vitamins and minerals. Be cautious in your consumption of sugary beverages. Make the upcoming academic year like a stint at the Olympics. Be studious and attentive, friendly to fellow students and staff. No bullying. No misbehaving in the classroom or at athletic events. There will be a time in your life when you will realize the importance of your school experience. Enjoy it now while it is happening. Do your absolute best. Make your school days a positive experience.

BOCA RATON -Florida Atlantic Universitys department of music in the Dorothy F. Schmidt College of Arts and Letters recently received a donation of $25,000 to establish the Georgina Dieter Dennis Vocal Scholarship Fund. Scholarships will be awarded for one academic year, but may be renewed upon availability of funding and satisfactory progress by the student scholarship recipient. FAU is one of four Florida colleges chosen to receive the scholarship. The others are the University of Miami, Florida International University and the University of South Florida. We are thrilled to have been chosen for the scholarship fund, said Rebecca Lautar, chair of FAUs department of music. Ms. Dennis love for the arts and her desire to help others will benefit many of our students. Georgina Dieter Dennis, who passed away in 2006, had a storied music career, starting at the age of 12 when she won the New York Music Week Association Junior Bronze Medal. She was awarded a scholarship to the Institute of Musical Arts of the Juilliard Foundation and later sang with the National Opera Associa tion. She made her debut at New Yorks Town Hall in 1937 and then went on to Canada to sing with the Civic Music Light Opera Company and back to the states to New Yorks Erlanger Theater and the Majestic. Dennis sang in every state in the Union during World War II and presented programs with James Vic tors Band for the USO. Dennis knew she was fortunate to have training and opportunities from an early age. She wanted to provide opportunities for others and so established the Georgina Dieter Dennis Foundation prior to her passing. This is the first year for the Vocal Scholarship Fund, which will be administered by the host schools. To receive a scholarship, the student must be a resident of Florida and must maintain a B average. For more information about FAUs music program, call the music department at 561-297-3810.

11 Edition 110 for news 24/7 go to bocaratontribune.com August 16, 2012 through August 22, 2012www.bocaratontribune.com By Dale M. King BOCA RATON Boca Raton doesnt act like a city caught in the throes of a recession. In fact, the community has a full plate of activities and projects, not to mention the fact that its Economic Development Incentive Program established in April 2010 has brought in 22 new companies and either created or retained 3,923 jobs. City Manager Leif Ahnell shared his State of the City address with a multitude of guests at the annual city-sponsored breakfast meeting of the Greater Boca Raton Chamber of Commerce, held Aug. 9 at the Via Mizner Country Club. Ahnell was joined by Mayor Susan Whelchel who was not present, but offered her ideas on a pre-recorded video. The city manager offered an assessment of Boca that seemed pretty positive. As to development, he said nearly 1,600 new residential permits are in various stages of approval. Also, more than 700 student housing units are planned along the 20th Street corridor which will become a back door to Florida Atlantic University. He also offered some bullet points: Construction of the new I-95 interchange should begin in the fall of 2013, with more lanes being added in the sec tion of the highway between Palmetto Park Road and Congress Avenue. The city and Lynn University are pulling out the stops for the Oct. 22 presidential debate expected to bring thousands of people to Boca. A request for proposals (RFP) will be issued at the end of the month for development of the Wildflower property, the three-acre parcel on Palmetto at the Intracoastal. A restaurant is expected to be the centerpiece for a plan to be decided by the end of the year. An RFP will be advertised soon for an entertainment or recreational complex on 15 acres near the Spanish River Library. Eight ball fields have been created at De Hoernle Park, with the coopera tion of the Greater Boca Raton Beach & Parks District. He also talked about switching to natural gas to fuel some of the citys heavy trucks. This would be one money-saving measure. Ahnell also talked of the periodic need to add sand to beaches a process called renourishment. He said the federal government has, in the past, offered financial assistance, but isnt any more. The cost of a beach renourishment runs about $10 million, he said. The city is also giving thought to annexation of land along its western border. He said no property will be attached unless the project is financially feasible. During upcoming budget discussions, he said, the City Council will resume its look at pensions and to make sure they are affordable. He did offer one positive note. He said property values appear to be sta bilized, which will help officials in the planning for the communitys financial future. Ahnell and the mayor both praised the citys relationship with the Greater Boca Raton Chamber of Commerce and the Palm Beach County Business Development Board. Bocas best days lie ahead, said the mayor in her pre-recorded comments.

This is the mission statement of the Countys Wa ter Utilities Department (WUD). How is WUD doing in fulfilling this mission? Best Water At a recent Board of County Commissioners meeting, officials with the American Water Works Association recognized the countys water plant at Sandalfoot Cove as the best water plant of its size in Florida. The Sandalfoot Cove plant, operated by the Water Utilities Department (WUD), provides drinking water to West Boca and southwestern Delray Beach. The AWWA Outstanding Class A Water Treatment Plant Award means the plant consistently produces high quality drinking water and is well operated and maintained. Best Service WUDs customer service (561-740-4600; Delray/Boca 561278-5135) and Emergency Service (561740-4600, option 3) provides answers and help when needed. WUD delivers and connects generators to service the lift stations after a hurricane. There are a number of homeowner associations who have bought generators through the County that will service the lift sta tions within their communities. The agreement does stipulate that if a hurricane has not affected the community, the generator(s) will be moved to areas in the County that were damaged. If your community would like more information, please contact my office. Best Environmental Stewardship WUD also oversees the Wakodahatchee and Green Cay Wetlands. If you havent visited these two gems featuring interesting wildlife and peaceful views, I highly encourage you to do so. Wakodahatchee is located at 13026 Jog Road in Delray Beach. Every day the WUDs Southern Region Water Rec lamation Facility pumps approximately two million gallons of highly treated water into these wetlands. By acting as a natural filter for the nutrients that remain, the wetlands work to further cleanse the water. The wetlands are open to the general public from 7:00 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., seven days a week. Green Cay Wetlands and Nature Center are located at 12800 Hagen Ranch Road, which is in suburban Boynton Beach on the east side of Hagen Ranch Road, between Boynton Beach Boulevard and Atlantic Avenue. The wetland features 1.5 miles of elevated boardwalk featuring interpretive signs about the habitat. The Nature Center includes a lecture hall, gift shop, and live animals in an extensive exhibit room that highlights wetland attributes. The wetland boardwalk is open to the general public from sunrise to sunset, seven days a week. As always, I invite your comments on any issue of interest to you. As your commissioner, I am here to help you. You may write me at 301 N. Olive Ave., West Palm Beach, 33401 or call my staff at 276-1310 or toll free at 877-930-2205.

But dramatic photos of the event will soon be on display at the Palm Beach Photographic Centre in West Palm Beach. Just days after the flag-waving, pride-filled closing ceremony of the Summer Olympic Games, PB Photographic is presenting an exhibition of images captured in London by renowned sports photographer and PBPC instructor Adam Stoltman. His work has appeared in Sports Illustrated, The New York Times and its Sunday Magazine, TIME, Newsweek, and a host of other publications, Stoltman has covered 11 Olympic Games. I photographed my first Olympics in Lake Placid in 1980, says Stoltman. I was 20 years old, had $50 to my name. I slept on floors and, as I was not accredited, I scrounged tickets to be able to photograph; but by the end of the Games, I had secured a few significant assignments. In 1984, I covered both the Winter Games in Sa rajevo and the Summer Games in Los Angeles working for Newsweek magazine, and have covered eight other Olympics since then. Each Olympics is a little different in terms of news, personality, and experience yet the passion of the athletes, and the scope and grandeur of the spectacle is a constant. It is impossible to attend an Olympics without being affected by the spirit of the event, heart of the competitors, the obvious pride of the host city and the diversity of competitors and media from all corners of the globe, he added. An opening night reception will be held Aug. 24 from 6 to 7:30 p.m. at the Center located at the City Center municipal complex at 415 Clematis St. in downtown West Palm Beach.

Yes was formed in 1968 by bassist Chris Squire. The band consists of bassist Squire, guitarist Steve Howe, drummer Alan White, keyboardist Geoff Downes, and newest addition singer John Davison. Yes has been through a lot of changes, said bassist Squire. About seventeen musicians have contributed at different times making Yes sound differ ent each time. Although weve kind of moved around between different styles our music has always been under the umbrella of Yes. After the closing set of Procol Harum, Yes entered the stage as the audience stood up in unison and roared. Yes still has the ability to allure fans through timeless hits. Steve Howes fin gers shuffled rapidly up and down the neck of numerous guitars throughout the concert as the audience cheered with excitement. Yes remains refresh ing regardless of what decade they perform in. If someone had told me this band would exist forty four years in time I would have never believed them, said Squire. I dont really know what keeps me going Im just really happy with the way things are, its a great job to have. The infamous band played classic hits such as Roundabout, Open Your Eyes, and Owner of a Lonely Heart. Each piece was collectively extended and classic. The majority of Yess influence stems from long classical pieces, hence this unique element added to their performances. Audience members were not surprised when Yes delivered yet another exceptional show. You hear songs on the radio to day that wont be good fifty years from now, said fan John Bower. Thats what makes Yes such a great band. They were good fifty years ago, and theyre still great today. Talent Varies at the Talent FarmBy Gina Onori and Aaron Wecker On Monday, August 6, adolescent hipsters were scattered throughout The Talent Farm in Pembroke Pines to hear their friends bands, The Vogans, Astronaut, The Vigilantes; they also came out to hear a more well know band, Side By Side. Side By Side is a pop rock group that has been strong for about two years, named one of the top unsigned bands in the country by the Billboard maga zine. The band tours nonstop and is constantly recording new songs. The unique thing about the band is that they draw huge influence from completely different places, creating a diverse sound different from any other band. Lead singer Joelle listens to a lot of pop, folk and jazz music. Guitarist Mike enjoys anything indie, 80s, and European rock, while drummer Geoff is constantly listening to music based on rhythm. Bassist Joseph Pepe is influenced by Blink 182, The Cure, Metric, Kanye West, Eric Valentine, Mark Hoppus, and other creative pop tunes. After numerous high school bands took the Talent Farm stage, Side By Side ignited the audience as vocalist Joelle ordered the crowd to come closer. Playing their more popular hits such as Lie to Me and My Everything; Joelle untwisted her hair tie to let her long brown curly hair flow back and forth to the music; as she vivaciously danced around the stage, bringing a real stage presence that was lacking in the less developed bands. Her exuberant attitude and unquavering melodic voice really grabbed the attention of many who had faded out, while waiting for their friends band to play. Performing is what our band lives for, said bassist Pepe. Its more addicting than any drug you could ever take. Side by Side is not afraid to admit they aspire to be big. In five years they see themselves touring international and having major distribution. Their goal from the start was to reach as many people as possible. In five years this band wants to be bigger than we could have ever imag ined, said Pepe. To tour the world, get extensive radio play, and be writing the best songs we can theres really no other option for any of us. BOCA RATON It was a rainy afternoon Aug. 12, but the Shoppes at Village Pointe managed to pull off its PAW-ty for pets, a Boca Festival Days event designed to benefit Tri County Humane Society. The event brought together dancers, live bands, artists, vendors, food samples, gourmet food trucks, bounce houses and dunk houses. Pets were also there for adoption, and a Happy Dog contest was held.

18 Edition 110 August 16, 2012 through August 22, 2012www.bocaratontribune.com If you are as sick as I am over the nasty attacks on both sides of the political spec trum over the coming elections, you may appreciate as I did the crude, over-the-top Rrated satire The Campaign. The Campaign does for politics what Austin Powers did for British secret agents. Its a total spoof of what is worst about both genres. It is no small coincidence that direc tor Jay Roach also directed Meet the Parents and its sequel and Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery and its sequel. Will Ferrell stars as Cam Brady, the smug, firmly-entrenched four-term Congressman from the diddly-squat 14th District of North Carolina. Brady seems to be a shoe-in for a fifth term, but he screws up royally by leaving a salacious voice mail intended for his mistress on the home phone of a family of his pious, ultra-conservative constituents. Seizing the opportunity, the ultra-rich, manipulative and amoral Motch (rhymes with Koch) brothers (Dan Aykroyd and John Lithgow) feel they can buy themselves a doc ile congressman who will enable them to outsource local jobs to China for maximum profit. Marty Huggins (Zach Galifianakis), a meek tourism bureau guide, is tapped as the perfect patsy. The Motch brothers hire the utterly ruthless Tim Wattley (Dylan McDermott) as campaign manager, and the mud fights begin. The script by Chris Hency and Shawn Harwell has a haphazard quality to it, but it does have some real zingers. It seems that everything political boils down to sex or money or a combination of the two, with both sanc timonious characters wrapping themselves in the cloak of professed religion. Will Ferrell is a fearless farceur, and his slapstick gaffes are the hallmark of his performance. Galifianakis is more subtle as the fey, slow-to-burn Marty, but given enough humiliation he rises to the occasion and finally begins to fight. Much of the movie is crass and cruel, making fun of fat people, religious hypocrites and devout people alike, but there are plenty of gross laughs. Sarah Baker should get some kind of reward for swallowing her pride so completely as Martys pudgy, gullible wife. Its a mess! is Martys campaign slogan. The Campaign is nothing if not messy, but it sure has some laughs. Two and a half stars Bourne Legacy Goes On With Mas Macho New Hero Matt Damon is gone but his spirit lingers on in The Bourne Legacy. This is the fourth in a series based on Robert Ludlams Jason Bourne novels and the first not to star Damon as the intrepid super-agent. Bourne went MIA after dismembering the black op Operation Blackbriar in the last installment, but he is referred to and we even see a poster-sized picture of him. Returning in reduced roles are David Strathairn, Albert Finney, Scott Glenn and Joan Allen. Tony Gilroy wrote a new story with his brother Dan only just inspired by Ludlams charac ters. He also directs. Aaron Cross is the new guy, played by Jeremy Renner. The movie opens with Aaron toughening up in Alaska in freezing cold. Like Bourne, Aaron is a special operative with the CIA, but it doesnt take him long to realize they want him terminated after he narrowly escapes a missile that blows up the cabin he was in. Then a doctor freaks out at a laboratory in Washington and begins to shoot fellow doctors. Cowering in fear is Dr. Marta Shearling (Rachel Weisz), a research scientist who has worked on mind-altering virus drugs at the sinister Outcome labs. Aaron happens to be on one of these drugs, and his supply is running out. Without the drug he will lose his mind, die or both. In one of many spectacular escapes, Aaron is able to bust Marta out of the lab, and so begins a worldwide chase with CIA assassins in close pursuit. Marta tells Aaron the only way she can make an antidote is to go to the lab in Manila, The Philippines, where it was created. Jeremy Renner is one fine physical specimen. The stunts he pulls off are amazing yet somehow believable. My favorite is the craziest, most thrilling motorcycle chase Ive ever seen, filmed in the teeming streets of Manila, with Aaron and Marta astride an off-theroad dirtbike, chased by a thug on a stolen police bike. Renner and Weisz are an attractive couple and they have good chemistry. Weisz has a winning combination of brains, beauty and understated sexiness to match Renners brawn and bravado. I have no doubt well be seeing more of Mr. Renner as Aaron Cross. Whether or not hell be paired again with Ms. Weisz we dont know, but its a strong bet it will be a good show. Three and a half stars Forget your typical menu for the most part. Combine organic and imported Japanese ingredients to produce new dishes meant for sharing a definition of fusion at this Japanese signature restaurant. Three soups head the menu we sampled a creamy edamame (pureed edamame with chicken broth) with a grilled shrimp garnish unusual but smooth and tasty. The shitake miso soup was much the standard brew but the Szechuan chicken soup of soman noodles, bits of spicy chicken shards with a bite and after bite great for spice lovers. Of the 4 salads, we tried a cool crabmeat angel hair with cucumber very tasty! Their house salad was bland, depending on any of 3 dressings to give it flavor. There is also a Caribbean seafood salad and a seaweed salad listed. The heading of Sushi Bar Teasers lead off with shrimp toast topped with a tuna/strawberry jam unique! A tuna pizza flatbread with guacamole, greens and sliced tuna had a splash of balsamic vinaigrette and spicy aioli nice presentation and taste. We had a green apple snow crabmeat, eel and sushi rice wrapped in thinly sliced avocado great in looks and taste. Six other items are listed not sampled. The Kitchen Teasers had rock shrimp tempura small tender pieces, breaded with a citrus sauce to be an excellent dish. We tried a crispy shrimp lollypop shrimp dumplings inside a wonton noodle with guacamole plus sweet chili very nice. We could not resist steamed pork and veggie dumpling pot stickers and we were rewarded with fine tasting stickers. Then, we tasted a lobster scallop cake consisting of pan seared ingredients that was a winner as well. We sampled various rolls the House Signature Rolls 15 in number including their Mystery Roll, spicy tuna with a house spicy sauce and their Kiss of Fire, cream cheese, asparagus tempura topped with shrimp, eel and smoked salmon served flamb! These, and the Old Fashioned Rolls 13 in number including a K.C. roll of salmon, snow crab meat wrapped in thin cucumber with sweet vinegar sauce. All were very, very nice tasting and well presented. 4 Udon soups and 4 edamame fried rice dishes, all in beef and chicken or shrimp variations offering a variety of flavors. We were delighted with Chilean sea bass enpapilote. This fish, cooked in a pouch, braised with sake, shitake mushrooms sat upon a pool of Bacardi 181 rum, ignited to produce a dramatic blue flame that burns off the alcohol leaving a sweet tasting fish to devour. Great! There are 10 additional items of this Kitchen Entre list. No Japanese restaurant is complete without a Sushi bar list of offerings we have some 10 sushi and sashimi combina tions here. Serving only sake, beer and wine, there is a rather extensive menu with choice by the glass and bottle. Located at 500 Via de Palmas at the Royal Palm Plaza in Boca Raton (561367-3283), they seat 50 inside and 50 on the patio for luncheon, 11:30AM to 2:30PM and dinner 5PM to 10PM 5 days a week. On Saturdays, they open noon to 11PM closed Sundays. Pricing is realistic for dinner, much reduced for lunch. Note the the Fusionaire Japanese experience is quite an eclectic take on dining. We tell the adventurous to Go and Enjoy!

It supports a significant amount of load during all motions like on bending and twisting. Due to anatomical and fisiological differences women are more prone to severe knee injuries when compare to men, however, both men and women, may suffer acute knee injuries caused by a one time event or due to repetitive trauma. One of the exercises that may aggravate knee problems is a stretch commonly used maximally bending the knee bringing the foot back in direction of the buttock with the intention to elongate the anterior thigh. When the knee is maximally bent the Pa tella or knee cap is maximally compressed against the femoral bone under it. This exercise may cause a condition known as condromalacea, where the cartilage under the patella becomes softened and inflamed, leading to knee pain and early joint degeneration. The overload to the knee joint in the attempt to get in shape fast may also cause permanent damage to the joint. Several other exercises may cause knee pain as on the leg press, lunges and plyometrics, when performed with poor alignment. Decrease the stress on your knees But dont misunderstand me: squats, lunges and plyometrics are excellent exercises to strengthen the gluteal muscles and the lower extremities, but make sure you prevent overload and pain by alternating them with low impact exercises on the rowing machine or eliptical, both offer the possibility of intense exercise with minimal impact. Swiming and speed walking are excellent activities as well. What to do to prevent knee injuries Maintain a healthy body weight: obesity may lead to osteoarthritis; to avoid that, maintain your weight within the healthy average for your body type and age, thus decreasing the stress to the knee joints. Use proper footwear for your foot type and indicated for the activity to be performed: the use of proper footwear assists with the maintenance of proper lower extremities alignment improving your balance and decresing the chances for knee injuries. Whenever possible shop for your footwear in specialized stores that offer a free analysis of your walking pattern and foot type. Increase the intensity of your exer cises gradually: this way you prevent excessive stress to the knee joints all at once. If you are out of shape your muscles may fatigue early, sacrificing your posture thru out the rest of the exercise and leading to injuries. Warm up before exercising: before any physical activity make sure you warm up your body to decrease the risk of injuries. After the warm up program perform gentle active stretch to decrease the tension to the muscles and joints. Strengthen your muscles : muscle strengthening of the abdominals, hips and lower extremities improves the joint support maintaining proper alignment and decreasing the overload to the knee joints. Exercise regularly: stopping all exercises will lead to further muscle weakness, and decreased joint support, leading to injuries and osteoarthritis. In the presence of pain never force an exercise, this may lead to worsening of symptoms. Never ignore knee pain : if the pain to your knee is decreasing your ability to exercise or to perform your daily activities, make sure you consult your doctor to avoid further problems. You may want to consult a physical therapist to establish an exercise program taking into consideration the diag nosis present and your body type. Knee pain can be disabling and should be prevented at all costs. Exercises and proper nutrition are also keys for a good health. Healthy Living Dr. Marcia Perretto Medina As Seen by Feen Diane FeenFeeling Good RegardlessThey say it takes a village, but Im not so sure that really helps. Others say that feeling good is an inside job and that a village will not suffice. I think they are right. It takes more than a village to keep your head up high and your hopes and dreams from shattering into micro-chips. It takes a firm belief in your goals and a firm grip on reality to convince yourself that you are not going crazy (even if you are, so are most of your peers). Sometimes its a client that is disrespectful or just wants a story written without saying very much (I always say that mind reader is not on my resume). Other times its the air conditioning repair man that says that your system is working perfectly, even if it takes two hours to go down one degree. And still theres the reality of living in a crazy world. Our political candidates are playing shoot the opponent on TV and in a lesser political realm real people are shooting each other for fun (or recreation). Some say we need tighter gun control, others feel that we need guns to protect our rights. Does that mean you can run a red light with an AK-47 or shoot someone if they grab your size at a shoe sale? And then there is the constant drone of losing ones religious freedom. Ac cording to Mitt Romney, Mr. Obama will take away our religious freedom if he stays in office. Well, is that so? I attend synagogue every Friday night and I see no signs that Mr. Obama will put someone at my front door to steer me to Wal-Mart instead of Temple Beth-El. As a matter of fact, most Jews I know would rather go to a movie or dinner than set foot in a synagogue anyway. When I was visiting New York I attended a synagogue and a church and no one threatened to take away my platform shoes while en route to services. And if that wasnt bad enough, Ann Curry was fired from The Today Show because of her choice of shoes. Of course we all know that if Matt Lauer showed up in a bikini he would still take home $21 million a year. But this all seems insignificant when you find out that Brad Pitt just bought Angelina Jolie a Patek Philippe hand made minute repeater watch for $370,000. When you think about it I am sure this little bauble is well worth the cash. After all it chimes like Big Ben and was made by hand. It may be a great gesture of his love for Jolie, but for men all over the world it will make those dozen red roses and a pair of mom jeans look a little chintzy. Before I found out about Pitts gift I was happy with the roses, cheese cake and blouse for my recent birthday. But now it all seems so classless. And besides, Pitt picked up the watch up in Geneva Switzerland, not Bloomingda les. I was beginning to think that perhaps I was being too hard on myself (and the world) until I heard that Dennis Rodman just published a childrens book. The man is clearly no role model for children and other than kinky sex tips (for adults) I doubt he has much to say to an innocent child. The former Chicago Bulls player owes his ex-wife $808,935 in back child support and his attorney claims he is suffering from alcoholism. Let me tell you folks, this is not fairy tale material. But there is one bright spot in the world. Love abounds. Jennifer Aniston just got engaged to Justin Theroux (and why not she has bought him everything except a private island with his initials on it), billionaire George Soros just got engaged to a woman half his age (but she has an MBA so you cant really classify her as a twit) and 65-year-old Susan Sarandon is romanc ing her hot 34-year-old ping pong business partner. All this good news has uplifted me from the reality doldrums and allowed me to forget the guns, the verbal sniping and possibility of a voucher program. But I still cant get over the fact that Mr. Soros did not pick me as a running (or walking) mate. attorney at law

22 Edition 110 August 16, 2012 through August 22, 2012www.bocaratontribune.com Effective August 13, the paratransit service operated by Palm Tran Connection is being provided under a new contract with Metro Mobility Management Group, LLC (Metro). Officials said Palm Tran and Metro staff have worked hard to ensure this transition will be as seamless as possible. Palm Tran Connection currently provides an average of 73,000 rides per month to the elderly and persons with disabilities. Metro is currently one of the three existing vendors providing this service. Metro will subcontract work to several different disadvantaged business enterprise (DBE) firms, including Two Wheels Transportation, which has been providing transportation to Palm Tran Connection customers for many years. The reservation system will continue to be managed by Palm Tran Connection. The new contract provides for greater use of smaller vehicles in order to provide the service at a lower cost to the county. Palm Tran Connection custom ers may now be transported in sedans, taxicabs, mini-vans, and cut-away vans. This diverse fleet will offer riders the most comfortable, cost-effective and safe service available. All new drivers will be fully trained and tested by Palm Tran Connection before assignment. The contract, as approved in June by the Board of County Commissioners, is for a five-year term at a cost of $90 mil lion. The contract provided the county with the greatest cost savings, estimated at $16.7 million during the five-year period over the next highest rated proposer. Two weeks ago, I suggested that the average citizen of Boca Raton would not know where the Mizner Park Cultural Arts Center (MPCAC) is, never mind what it may be programmed to do. Well after filing one public records request; receiving a 373 page public records file; and spending $70 for copying charges, there may actually be an answer, albeit, not short and certainly not clear. Please excuse the legal jargon and the use of alphabet soup references throughout this column. It is surprisingly difficult to follow the complexities and interrelationships considering that the actual number of insiders is limited to a mere few. The story starts in January 2004 when the not for profit group, Mizner Park Cultural Arts Association, Inc. (MPCAA) was formed for the purpose of leasing and operating the City/CRA owned property located at 201 Plaza Real, at the southwestern end of Mizner Park. Hence we now know where the MPCAC is located. As for the why, one needs to take a trip down memory lane to a time when the International Museum of Cartoon Art (IMCA) closed its doors here in Boca Raton leaving the publicly owned facility vacant and dark. The original lease with IMCA was amended and reinstated in March, 2005 by the City/ CRA to this newly formed not for profit, MPCAA, for the public purpose of creating a space for cultural purposes, a cultural/ arts educational park. The agreement has been further amended three additional times; to wit: July June and January In general, all these amended and reinstated agreements reinforce the purpose that a space for cultural arts be available to the public; be managed by the MPCAA, and now its successor management organization, Schmidt Family Center of the Arts (SMFCA); and, at very favorable terms extending to 2040 for $1 a year through the term of the lease. Suffice it to say that the legal documents and contracts are very complex and worthy of examination beyond the constraints of this column. One additional consideration requires a look at the physical plant, its capital improvements and ongoing maintenance. MPCAA approached Palm Beach County for a grant to fund a Black Box Theater on the second floor of the facility. That has been completed with an interlocal agreement continuing to require that the public space be available for non profit and cultural organizations. Currently, maintenance and capital improvements for the facility remain the responsibility of the management organiza tion and not the taxpayer but there has been at least one effort by the management group to get the City/CRA to pass these costs on to the taxpayer with programming control almost totally at the discretion of MPCAA/ SMFCA. Three reports to the City/CRA have been made during 2010 through 2011. Within these reports are concise summaries of the complex relationships. Some of the contract provisions are as follows: A 40 year term expiring in 2040; MPCAA/SFCFA may enter into sub leases with cultural subtenants without Landlord (CRA) permission; MPCAA/SFCFA is required to maintain the premises second floor as a first class cultural arts and educational center; MPCAA/SFCFA is required to redevelop and outfit the second floor for cultural and civic purposes; to wit: museums and/or an auditorium/lecture hall for community uses; a gift shop; a television studio, and any other cultural use deemed appropriate by the landlord and the tenant; and, MPCAA/SFCFA shall obtain cultural subtenants within 6 months of completion with the MPCAC open to the public at least 35 hours per week during at least 48 weeks of the year. In summary, the City/CRA remains committed to creating a cultural use for the facility but this has clearly not been accomplished in the now 8 years since its beginning. In the three reports, the City/CRA has heard that the process is an ongoing effort and that the tenant is in compliance with the contract terms. Really, by whose standards???? First, the city official giving the report is intimately involved with the management team and the decision process for accomplishing the contract terms. Contract compliance requires an in-depth, independent review. The City/CRA should retain the services of an outside auditor to review objectively the substance of this management teams performance before any new amended and reinstated agreements are brought forward.. Second, recently it is as been reported that a Jazz venue will be coming to the old ZED451 space, a great step forward to the requirement that the first floor be first class retail and restaurant operations. Of concern, however, is that also reported is that this jazz operation will be encroaching on the reserved cultural area for use as a recording studio. Justification for such an encroachment may be found in the language of at least one of the amended and restated agreements. However, the devil will have to be in the details. In order for such an encroachment to be a permitted, the for-profit entity must directly provide services to a not for profit before the forprofit entity can co-locate in the reserved cultural area. One thing is clear. Any encroachment into the reserved cultural area will require permission of the City/CRA policy makers. So the time is yet to come for the public to have some light shed on this black hole and on the insiders currently making decisions outside the public eye as these decisions must be made to advance the public purpose of providing for and expanding the cultural arts in this great city, Boca Raton.

Lennox Ferguson, 25, of Lake Worth, learned that lesson the hard way, Boca Ra ton Police said. On Wednesday, August 8 at about 7:50 p.m., officers responded to a call involving a disabled Mercedes Benz that was blocking traffic at the intersection of Yamato Road and Congress Avenue. An officer made contact with the driver, identified as Lennox Ferguson, who said that the vehicle ran out of gas. While the officer was talking to Lennox, she was told by police dispatch that the Mercedes was reported stolen out of Miami. The officer ordered Ferguson out of the car and he initially complied, but instead of getting on the ground, he fled across several lanes of traffic before giving up near 901 West Yamato Road, police said. Ferguson was taken into custody without further incident. Officers searched Fergusons backpack. Police said it contained three screwdrivers, black pants, a black long sleeved shirt and black boots.

23 Edition 110 for news 24/7 go to bocaratontribune.com August 16, 2012 through August 22, 2012www.bocaratontribune.com by Amanda Silberling Summertime in Florida is known for its clear skies, light breezes, and blazing sun raysthe perfect weather for a beach or pool excursion. Without appropriate preparation, what may seem like a fun activity could be fatal for your young ones. In Florida, toddlers are most likely to meet death in a swimming pool. In fact, more children fall victim to drowning here than in any other state. Parental initiative, however, can drastically reduce instances of these unfortunate fatalities. As you get ready to swim, remember these simple tips that can keep young children out of danger: sible When living in Florida, with warm weather year-round and nearby beaches, wa ter activities are ordinary. Before your childs first birthday, it is likely that he or she will be exposed to a swimming pool. Because of this, pediatricians encourage parents to put their children in swim lessons at the earliest age that they can. A study conducted by the National Institutes of Health concluded that formal swimming lessons lead to an eightyeight percent decrease in the prevalence of drowning. The United States Swim Academy, located in Coral Springs, offers a free lesson to any Broward County baby. This swim academy also holds semi-private Preschool programs for children two-and-one-half years or older. Its inevitable that children will wander. And when they do manage to leave your sight, they may end up on the patio beside a six-foot deep body of water. With a fence surrounding the edges of your pool, your childs life may be saved. Its the time of year when you can finally relax. Just as kids count down the days until school is out, you need a break from responsibility too. As easy as it is to lie down by the poolside and drift off, its your duty to remain vigilant, and make sure that your children are safe at all times. Seventy-five percent of childhood drownings are due to a lack of supervision. You have the ability to lower that percentage simply by staying aware of what takes place in the pool. Call the United States Swim Academy at (954) 509-0089 for more information about enrolling your children in swim lessons and keeping them safe when in the water.

BusinessThe Boca Raton Tribune Business Boca Named One of Top 50 Meeting, Convention Destinations in US By Dale M. King BOCA RATON Next time your company is looking for a place to conduct meetings or conventions, just look outside your window. Boca Raton has been dubbed one of the top 50 meeting destinations in the United States. Cvent, the worlds largest meetings and event management technology company, recently announced the top 50 cities for meetings and events in the United States, according to meeting and event booking ac tivity in the Cvent Supplier Network. Boca Raton came in 43rd on that list, and is one of five Florida locations listed. This is indicative of the phenomenal work of the Visitors and Convention Bureau, said Troy McLellan, president and CEO of the Greater Boca Raton Chamber of Commerce. It is a testament to what they have done. But he said the high ranking is also indicative of the quality and service provided by resorts, clubs and hotels in Boca Raton. Just look at the meeting locations, he said. The Boca Raton Resort & Club is one of the best. And you have the Wyndham, the Marriott, the Renaissance and others, all providing quality service. Cvent said the Number 1 venue for meetings and conventions is Orlando, following by Washington, D.C., Las Vegas, Miami, Chicago, San Diego, Phoenix, Atlanta, Dallas and New Orleans. New York is Number 11. We are honored and excited to be rated as the top U.S. destination by Cvent. Corporate meetings are a crucial business seg ment for Orlando, and our ranking No. 1 validates the effort we have put into working with these groups, said Tammi Runzler, senior vice president of convention sales and services at Visit Orlando. More importantly, Orlando remains committed to making the destination a compelling choice for corporate meetings. Meetings and conventions are important revenue generators for cities, supporting not only the meeting venues and hotels, but also local restaurants, entertainment and numerous other businesses within the city, said Bharet Malhotra, vice president of sales for the Cvent Supplier Network. Cvents role in the meetings ecosystem is to connect venues and planners to facilitate efficient and informed meeting booking. As the single largest marketplace for meetings activity, we have an excellent feel for which cities and properties are popular and growing, and the data to back it up. McLellan agreed, pointing out the fact that companies look for price, quality and a good experience within the community when selecting a conference site. Boca offers great environs, he said, such as Mizner Park, with its shops, restaurants and cultural offerings. In addition to Orlando, Boca and Miami, other Florida cities that made the top 50 include Tampa, 32 (site of the upcoming Republican National Convention) and Naples, 49. To come up with the rankings, Cvent evaluated 1,000 cities and 200 major metropolitan areas (MMAs) in the U.S. on the Cvent Supplier Network to create the list. Activity was tracked between July 2011 and June 2012, and the ranking was then determined by a set of qualifying criteria, including: booked through the Cvent Supplier Network; quest-for-proposals (RFPs) sent through the marketplace to venues within the city; ted; ings booked. In addition to ranking top cities, Cvent also ranked the top MMAs to represent select markets where notable meetings activity takes place near, but outside the limits of the city core.

24 Edition 110 August 16, 2012 through August 22, 2012www.bocaratontribune.com BUSINESS East/West Boca Raton, FL Copyright 2011Bernard Featherman. Bernard Featherman is a columnist for the Boca Raton Tribune and is also the mayor of Highland Beach. By Mayor Bernard FeathermanTHE CORNER OFFICE the Best Medicine You sometimes need a good laugh at something funny to lighten up a tough situation. It is important to have a good sense of humor to balance out your life. When something bad happens, you can more easily cope by looking on the lighter side of things. Laughter helps us gather our thoughts and feelings to manage our lives better. The world is a funny place after all. Laughing about it to ourselves can relieve tensions. Many years ago, a friend gave me the book, Anatomy of an Illness, while I was recovering from a minor operation. I still read it for inspiration and laughs. It was written by Norman Cousins, a famous journalist, who had been hospitalized with a serious disease and told that he was dying. Instead of giving in to his fate, he checked out of the hospital and into a hotel room. Along with large doses of vitamin C, he brought a movie projec tor with him. Norman watched old Marx Brothers movies and Candid Camera TV tapes. These were his lifesaving medicines, along with books of jokes that made him laugh as he read them. He claimed those jokes saved his life. Maybe they did. We now know that positive emotions can help us to cope, when we are ill. Cousins claimed that he laughed himself back to health. In business or in our daily lives, a little laughter can really help us to be more patient and understanding. If you are dining at a restaurant and the wait staff is unfriendly, you will not want to return. Or, if you go to a retail store and the clerk is rude, you may not want to make a purchase. It may be no laugh ing matter to you or to business owners, but if you can laugh about it on the way out of the restaurant or store, you will feel better. Recognize that at the time it was a terrible experience, but think about all the stories you can tell about it later on, and how funny it will sound. The best thing to do, when you are feeling annoyed or angry, is to think of something that will make you laugh and feel relieved. When things go wrong or you cant get on track, take time out and try to laugh. No matter which end of the story you are on, customer or server, laugh at yourself and think of something funny because at this crucial moment, you need to defuse things. Everyone benefits if you can do it. Later, if necessary, you can take more serious steps to resolve any problems or issues. There is now scientific evidence to show that people who find humor in their difficult encounters are often healthier and able to heal themselves better than those who dont. Laughter really does help us. So the next time something unpleasant happens and you are feeling down, think about my doctor friend who rushed his patient to the hospital emergency room and after two days, the patient took a turn for the nurse. Sure, you probably know a better joke than that one. Save some of the ones that your friends send you on the Internet. Pick the ones you like best. Print them out and use them the next time you need some humor in your life. Business By Carlo Barbieri In a world beset by financial strife and uncertainty about the future, Bra zil has a lot to offer. Here are just a few bullet points: Brazil is among the largest countries in terms of territory, population and GDP ($2.475 billion for 2011 in US dollars.) Brazil has vast natural resources, including recently discovered large offshore oil fields, a diverse industrial base, a dynamic and sophisticated private sector and a well-structured public sector; Brazil is a vigorous democracy, with free multiparty elections and a stable political system; Brazil has good relations with all its neighbors and has invigorated its ties with all regions of the world. Its economy is the largest among Latin American nations and the second largest in the western hemisphere. Bra zil is one of the fastest-growing major economies in the world with an average annual GDP growth rate of over 5 percent. But there is also cause for concern particularly as the world deals with a continuing economic crisis. American millionaire real estate investor Sam Zell said Brazil still has opportunities for investment, especially in sectors linked to consumption. The question is whether this slowdown is over or not, said Zell. There are different opinions about it, but in general, foreign investors view Brazil and other emerging markets with cau tion. Today, emerging economies face many obstacles, a lot of resistance. Yet, he said, the demand for housing is strong, and even the hotel market is very promising. Actually, Brazil set its course for stability in the early 1990s when a presidential impeachment in 1992 following by a weak administration led by the former vice president allowed rampant inflation to continue. Through the 1990s and into the 21st century, the nations economy has grown, though lately, it hasnt quite kept up with estimates. The FOCUS report says that growth of Brazils gross product was estimated to increase 4.5 percent in 2012, yet the figure is more like 1.9 percent. Still, this is good, considering the struggling international economical situation. Brazil maintains financial diversity with membership in a mix of economic organizations such as Union of South American Nations World Trade Organization Cairns Group. Its trade partners number in the hundreds, and 60 percent of its exports are manufactured or semi-manufactured goods. Brazils main trade partners in 2008 were: Mercosul and Latin America (25.9 percent of trade), European Union EU (23.4 percent), Asia (18.9 percent), the United States (14.0 percent), and others (17.8 percent). Important steps have been taken since the 1990s to bring about fiscal sustainability and to liberalize and open the economy. These have significantly boosted the countrys com petitiveness fundamentals, providing a better environment for private-sector development. The owner of a sophisticated tech nological sector, Brazil develops projects that range from submarines to aircraft and is involved in space research. The country possesses a satellite launching center and was the only nation in the Southern Hemisphere to integrate the team responsible for the construction of the International Space Station (ISS). It is also a pioneer in many fields, including ethanol production. According to government statistics, Brazil was the first capitalist country to bring together the 10 largest car as sembly companies inside its national territory. The annual Brasil Investment Summit takes place in So Paulo and is the largest gathering in Brazil of international investment experts covering opportunities in alternative vehicles, infrastructure, and advanced trading strategies. Brazil is also a pioneer in the fields of deep water oil research from where 73 percent of its reserves are extracted. With still high levels of Eco nomic inequality, though it has dimin ished in the last years, the Brazilian economy has become one of the major economies of the world. According to Forbes 2011, Brazil has the 8th larg est number of billionaires in the world, a number much larger than what is found in other Latin American countries, and even ahead of Japan. By the end of 2011, Brazils economy had become the worlds sixth-largest. Next week: The Boca Raton-Brazil Connection. TheBocaRatonTribune.com

Tips for Negotiating: The BasicsBy Palm Beach State College Small Business Development Center BOCA RA TON -Negotiation is a fact of life, especially when you are a business owner. So, where do we begin with this subject? First and foremost, there are people you know who are great negotiators ask them for a few tips, if possible OBSERVE them in action! Did you know that your local library has many resources on this subject and for more in-depth assistance you can request the services of a research librarian? Here are some ideas that may assist you in the negotiation game thereby improving your chances of a mutually agreeable outcome. Think about the four elements: people, interests, options, objective criteria and your commitment. Evaluate your opponents. Example: their status in the organization, their educational background, personality profile (likes/dislikes) negotiation style and time frame of the agreed-upon project or outcome. This will enable you to be more comfortable when you are negotiating. Seek common ground. You both like playing tennis? Great, that is a good icebreaker when exchanging pleasantries. The physical layout of the room is important. A round table is considered best for negotiations, also lighting of the space should be considered as well as the chairs. So, now we are sitting at the table, do we all know why we are here? What is on the table? Before either party can move forward, you need to know what their concerns are and how you both can come to an agreement. If the other party doesnt share information with you, the task cannot move forward. Communicate clearly your expectations and what it can do for them. Always search for common ground. Its important to know your own value and stress that open communication is the key to a successful outcome. It is also important that you remain optimistic. Remember to be diplomatic. Diplomacy and poise on your part can go a long way to even the trickiest negotiations and demands. It opens the door to problemsolving and a more reasonable business outcome which may equate to more business for your firm.

27 Edition 110 for news 24/7 go to bocaratontribune.com August 16, 2012 through August 22, 2012www.bocaratontribune.com bocaratontribune.comHow To Get People To One of the most common problems in the workplace, or in the home, is poor communication. Even your best ideas, plans or suggestions are worthless if you cant communicate them effectively. Every year companies lose billions in potential profits because they ignore outstanding ideas or suggestions from employees. Communication is not automatic. Just because someone is hearing you say something doesnt mean they are really listening. Fortunately, there are seven skills all of us can develop that can help to ensure that people will listen to us when we speak. Interestingly enough, these simple, yet profound and amazingly contemporary guidelines are presented in the pages of the Bible: 1. CHOOSE THE RIGHT TIME! Timing is the first key in effective communica tion. You may be ready to talk, but your audience ready, or even willing, to listen? Never drop a bomb a startling, unexpected statement or announcement that your hearers are not prepared to receive. There is a right time and a right way to do everything (Ecclesiastes 8:6). 2. PLAN YOUR PRESENTA TION. Carefully think through what you intend to say first. When what you need to communicate is critical, take the effort especially to plan your introduction and supporting illustrations. Dont begin what you are going to say with cumbersome details that could obscure your primary objectives. Take a hint from TV, where directors move from the long shot to the medium shot to the close-up. Intelligent people think before they speak. What they say is then more persuasive (Proverbs 16:23). 3. BEGIN WITH HIS OR HER (YOUR HEARERS) NEEDS. A listener is always asking questions like, Why should I listen to this? and, How will it benefit me? If you can answer these two questions at the outset, you will have your audiences undivided attention they will understand why what you have to say is significant to them. Speak only...according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen (Ephesians 4:29). 4. LISTEN FIRST! We usually get into trouble when we make assumptions, especially when trying to communicate important information. Before you concentrate on what you intend to say, be willing to listen to the other side first and gain their perspective. Be quick to listen and slow to speak (James 1:19). 5. SAY IT POSITIVELY. No one likes to hear bad news. Learn to be both realistic and optimistic at the same time. You are never persuasive when you are abrasive, or negative! If you have bad news, say it up front in a factual, non-personal way. Then quickly move into a more positive, construc tive mode. The mature person is known for his understanding. The more pleasant his words, the more persuasive he is (Proverbs 16:21). 6. CLARIFY YOUR CONCLUSIONS. Summarize and recap what youve said to make certain that you have been properly understood. Be specific. Restate what you have decided on and what you havent to ensure agreement. Agree with each other in the Lord (Philippians 4:2). 7. END WITH AN ENCOURAGING WORD. Exit lines your closing words are important. Even if the discussion was heated and both sides took some heavy shots of criticism, try to end on a positive, affirming note. A word of encouragement does wonders! (Proverbs 12:15). Rick Warren is the author of the highly ac claimed, best-selling book, 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.

We were married when we were both 16, and had a son two years later. I came to the United States four years ago to play baseball and now play in the ma jor leagues and earn about $15 million a year. My ex and I wrote for a couple of months, and then she wrote that she had divorced me. She sent me a court paper ordering me to pay child support of about $100 a month. I have paid her child support since. I have re-married My former wife moved to Miami last year. I found out that she was here last week when she served me with divorce papers, claiming that we were still married. She asked for alimony, half of my property, an increase in her child support, and attorneys fees. Do you think that there is a chance that my former wife has rights against me? That we are not really divorced? If I am not divorced, is my marriage to my American wife legal? A To answer your question I would have to review a certified copy of the Cuban legal records leading to the child support court order that you, hopefully, still have in your possession. Use any legal contacts you still have in Cuba to research the records of the court named in the court order for any other documents. The issues will turn on the type of the case your former wife filed. If it was for child support only, you may still be married. If her case invoked the Cuban divorce law on the issue of dissolving your marriage and distributing property you may actually be divorced, if the Cuban court had jurisdiction over you. You might have your contact in Cuba check the marriage records to see if your former wife re-married after you left the island. Her re-marriage would certainly indicate her intent, belief that you were legally divorced, and that your Cuban divorce was finalized. If you were not legally divorced in Cuba your marriage in the United Sates would not be valid. The effect that that would have on your legal rights and those of your wife are too far reaching to fully cover in this column. Your Cuban wife would be able to obtain a significant raise in her child support, governed by the Florida Statute providing the child support guidelines.Columnists $ $$ We are looking to partner with a few dynamic, results-oriented women who are ready to earn what theyre worth.

29 Edition 110 for news 24/7 go to bocaratontribune.com August 16, 2012 through August 22, 2012www.bocaratontribune.com SportsThe Boca Raton Tribune Sports By: Pedro Heizer In front of 80,203 fans at Wembley Stadium, the U.S. Womens Na tional team were golden yet again with a 2-1 victory over Japan in what was a rematch of the 2011 FIFA Womens World Cup. The USWNT won its fourth gold medal in the give Olympic competitions featuring womens soccer. Winning four gold medals is a feat that has never been accomplished either in Mens or Womens Olympic Soccer history. The USWNT got off to a flying start in the gold medal match when Lloyd gave her side an early lead in the eighth minute. Shannon Boxx worked the ball from right to left to Kelley OHara and then Tobin Heath. Heath slipped a low cross into the box for Alex Morgan, whose first touch took her to the end line left of the goal. She deftly crossed the ball across the front of the goalmouth with her next touch towards Wambach who had crashed towards the net. While it appeared Wambach was poised to get a goal in her sixth straight game London, she remained tightly marked and Lloyd darted into the scene from her midfield run and headed the ball into the right side of the net. Morgans assist was her team-leading fifth of the Olympics. Im so proud of her because she played so many games and all of a sudden I thought she wasnt good enough. Then she just comes back and helps the team tremendously and she proved that I was wrong. I love that, said USWNT head coach Pia Sundhage on Lloyds performance. Its not just the skill on the ball and the physical aspect of the game, but shes got what it takes. It doesnt matter what she goes through, added teammate Hope Solo on Lloyds performance. Shes mentally strong and thats what I admire most about Carli. Nobody can affect her play, not being benched, shell come back on the field and make plays. Shes just a winner. Shes a veteran on this team and shell find a way to win. Japan found a long spell of possession after the USA goal and ultimately an array of scoring chances. In the 17th minute, Homare Sawa slipped Na homi Kawasumi through into the left side of the penalty area and the defender took a shot toward the far right post that got past U.S goalkeeper Hope Solo, but team captain Christie Rampone hustled to get a body on the ball and prevent a goal. The rebound deflected off Solos back and bounced in the sixyard box where Yuki Ogimi came rushing in to try and finish the opportunity, but Solo did well to get back into position and made a point-blank save. Solo had a sensational match and came up with a huge save on Ogimi again one minute later, when the Japa nese forward snapped a high-header on goal. Solo leapt to get her left glove on the shot and push the ball off the crossbar. U.S. defender Rachel Buehlers headed clearance fell back to Ogimi for another sniff, but her strike from close range went wide right and high. She played very well and helped us big time when we struggled a little bit in defending, said Sundhage of Solos heroics. I think Japan played very well, but give credit to our defending and give credit for the way we counterattacked. The USWNT avoided a potential game-changing moment in the 26th minute when Miyamas free kick from just outside the box struck the left arm of U.S. midfielder Tobin Heath, who was positioned near the wall inside the penalty area. Japans appeals for a penalty were denied as referee Bibiana Steinhaus signaled for play to continue. Maintaining a one-goal lead to start the second half, the USWNT gave itself a bit more breathing room in the 54th minute with Lloyds second goal of the game. Rapinoe dished to Lloyd just inside the Japanese half and she did the rest, dribbling for more than 25 yards through the center of the park and slic ing towards goal before unleashing a wicked right-footed blast from 20 yards out that streamed into the left side netting, giving Japans diving goalkeeper Miho Fukumoto no chance. The strike would prove to be the game-winner, her second straight in Olympic gold medal matches as she scored the deciding goal in the USAs 1-0 overtime victory against Brazil in Beijing in 2008. Coming in, I was coming off the bench and I didnt know what to expect, said Carli Lloyd On her performances in big Olympic matches. I prepared harder than anyone. I dont think there is anyone who trains harder than I do. I was ready for the moment and I took it game-by-game. I focused and I kept on it every single day. Hard work pays off. Japans continual possession and pressure eventually paid off with Ogimis rebound goal in the 63rd minute. Japan strung together a bevy of passes before a slicing ball was put into the right side of the penalty area for the streaking Shinobu Ohnu. She took a quick touch before cutting the ball back to Sawa who was wide open at the penalty spot. Sawa hit a first-time shot that got past Solo, and once again Rampone blocked the goal-bound shot off the line. The ball fell back to Sawa, and this time she touched it to her left for Ogimi and the forward buried the easy finish from two yards out. Japans offense had another similar scramble in the 74th minute after Lloyd was called for a handball outside of the box on the right side. Miyama took the free kick and the delivery was deflected to Azusa Iwashimizu who hit a volley on target that seemed destined for goal, but U.S. defender Amy LePeilbet stood resolute and blocked the shot while on her knees. The ball remained loose, but Japans Saki Kumagai was eventually called for a foul and the USWNT maintained their slim advantage. In the final 10 minutes, Japan nearly equalized when Mana Iwabuchi stole the ball from Rampone near the top of the box and closed in one-on-one with Solo. Coming in from the left side, Iwa buchi tried to curl a shot towards the back post but Solo was up to the challenge and made a monster diving save to keep the U.S. in the lead. It was such a journey. It was so emotional, said forward Alex Morgan on her Olympic experience. It was upand-down and we all did it together. We were such a unit and we leaned on each other when we needed to. We ended up on top and Im so happy. Were the best in the world right now.
30 Edition 110 August 16, 2012 through August 22, 2012www.bocaratontribune.com Sports By: Pedro Heizer In front of 3,549 Striker Likers at Lockhart Stadium, the Fort Lauderdale Strikers were able to complete a feat that they have accomplished only a total of three times this season, earn a shutout victory. The Shutout victory is the first for Fort Lauderdale since June 10 when they defeated FC Edmonton 1-0 at Clarke Sta dium. The Strikers defeated the Carolina Railhawks 1-0 in a game that saw the Strikers solidify their place in the NASL Standings. With the win, Fort Lauderdale moves to 8-8-6 and with 30 points, the Strikers took sole position of fourth place in the standings. Andy Herron scored his eighth goal of the season in the 65th minute when he had a perfect right-footed shot just outside the box on a sensational assist from Mark Anderson. This wasnt easy, Herron said. We came in with the right mentality. All we needed to do was score one goal and go from there. We got the goal, the zero and the win. Mark Anderson flirted with the goal all night long but couldnt find the back of the net. Anderson had at least four solid chanc es to extend his rookie record of goals but the ball just didnt roll his way this time around. We took our chances well and there were a few missed opportunities on both sides, said Strikers head coach Daryl Shore. After two games in which Fort Lauderdales defense seemed to lose its shape during the match, the defense this time around proved all wrong and had one of the best games of the season, We were solid defensively, Shore said. We defended as a team. The big message in the locker room today was team defense for 90 plus minutes and I think we saw that tonight. We worked all week on our defensive shape, Shore said. We made a couple of changes to the lineup and we knew we would get chances going forward. We knew if we could stop the bleeding defensively we could create chances. Fort Lauderdale now has a seven game unbeaten streak at Lockhart Stadium with a record of 7W-3T-1L. Up Next: The Strikers take on the Puerto Rico Islanders in Puerto Rico before coming home on the 25th for World Record Night where Strikers themed sunglasses will be distributed to fans as they enter Lockhart Stadium while supplies last. Fans will be instructed when they need to wear the glasses in order to make an official world record attempt. The current world record of 1,642 was set at Wrigley Field, in Chicago on July 6.

On June 12, 2011, LeBron had just been defeated by the Dallas Mavericks in Game 6 of the 2011 NBA Finals. A Series which saw him average only 17.8 PPG and routinely have 4th Quarter disappearances. LeBron, and us, couldnt look, listen or go anywhere without laughter and shame being pointed his way. The grand experiment of Wade, James and Bosh is South Beach had failed. And although they were just 2 games from their ultimate prize, the way it all fell apart was a perfect script for the haters. Nearly all the blame fell on LeBron. He was being stripped of his nickname, The King and he was humbled. A few weeks later, everything changed for James. He get back in the gym and started working on his game again. He met up with Hall of Famer Akeem Olajuwon to work on the post-game that everyone has been begging him to do. He rediscovered the joy in the game of bas ketball, and then once the season started, everything LeBron touched turned to gold. LeBron finished the 2011-12 season averaged 27.1 PPG, 7.9 RPG, and 6.2 APG. He had a PER of 30.8, which was far and above anyone else in the league. He led the HEAT to the 4th best record in the NBA and May 12, he received his 3rd NBA MVP award in 4 seasons. On his way throughout the playoffs, he put on remarkable performances. He carried the HEAT back even against the Pacers after Chris Bosh went down. In Game 4 he tallied 41 points, 18 rebounds and 9 assists. When facing elimination against the Celtics down 3-2 on the road in the Conference Finals, LeBron felt the pressure and dropped 45 points to go with 15 rebounds. And when it was time to wrap everything up, James pulled out a triple double in the clinching Game 5 over the Thunder to win the title. LeBron led the HEAT to their second title in franchise history and his first as a player. He received the NBA Finals MVP award along with it. And just a week or two later, LeBron was with team USA training for the Olympics. While in London, LeBron was the leader of a group of All-Stars. He commanded leadership and perfection from his team. Coach K continually referred to LeBron as the most important, most versatile, and best player on the team and in the world. And James lived up to those words. In the closing moments of the Gold Medal game against Spain, LeBron put the game out of reach with a dunk and go ahead 3-pointer. And now, in a span of 3 months, LeBron has won the NBA MVP, an NBA Championship, the NBA Finals MVP, and an Olympic Gold Med al, a feat that only Michael Jordan had done prior. Hes no longer a punchline to your joke. He is King James.
