Altidore who plays for Dutch-side AZ Alkmaar was taunted during a quarterfinal match against FC Den Bosch, a second-tier team. After the match, Altidore spoke to the Dutch media about the incident and said he will pray for the fans who taunted him. Its a bit dissapointing that these things still happen, said the 23-year old Boca Raton Native. But what are you going to do? You just have to hope that these people find a way to improve themselves. After hearing the chants, Den Bosch officials warned the fans over the speakers to stop, what was reported by AZs official twitter feed, as jungle sounds directed towards Altidore.Honoring those who served BBQ Bank Goes After Squatter in $2.5M Mansion

Burt Richards says to me, Students recite the Pledge of Allegiance in class every day, and do not know who wrote it and they think Pearl Harbor is a resort in the Ba hamas. When I arrive at Veterans Park in West Boca Raton on a sunshiny Friday afternoon on January 25th. I learn that the people in attendance fought in WWII, Vietnam, Korea, and in other regions around the world. At first I was overwhelmed, who to talk to or where to start, but then I meet Corporal Burt Richards also known as the Burt Reynolds of Boca. Like my own grandfather he takes me by the hand and shows me around the VFW (veterans of foreign wars) post like I was a celebrity. I remained humble though when Cpl. Richards introduced me to a group of ten people that are residents from a veterans community living center. He told me these men who served for our country many years ago now rely on the Veterans Administration to help them be cared for because they do not have either friends or family to rely on. These veterans are either mentally or physically debilitated and need professional help to live comfortably on a daily basis. If it were not for the VFW post and supporters, this particular group of veterans would not be able to leave the center to enjoy a beautiful day of being in the company of others. Cpl. Richards then takes time to introduce me to VFW VAVS representative, veteran. Lieutenant Barry Goldin who served in Vietnam in 1969. Lt. Goldin represents the VA medical center in West Palm Beach and coordinates activities twice a month for the resident veterans. Its a really rewarding experience to meet with these fellas, they made a lot of sacrifice when they were younger and its a way to repay these veterans today. Close by was Robert Boucher a navy veteran who fought in the Korean war, I ask him why is it important to help our veterans? He says, Its important because a lot of them do not have families, we become their adopted family. After meeting with a few of the veterans and listening to their stories I thought my job was done, but Cpl. Richards insisted I stay and have some classic BBQ fair of burgers and hotdogs. As we were waiting in line for food Cpl. Richards turned out to be a real jokester having laughs with the people around him. To one man he said, Youre so hunched over that when your standing you can tie your shoe laces. He makes another joke, What is the longest sentence that is one word?prison! Cpl. Richards is not only involved with the veterans post, but he also participates in the Veterans Speakers Forum teaching students about American history. He teaches programs such as: Arlington Tomb, the Korean War, and the Tuskegee Airmen. The experience I encountered that day at the park showed me how history cannot simply be learned in textbooks or from dramatic films, but from the men and women who served our country to protect our freedoms. Seeing for myself how proud veterans are to have served our country made me think about how proud I am to be an American.Honoring those who served BBQ T I R E D O F Y O U R C L E A N I N G C R E W ? 561 -693 6776 Local Owned and Operated No Contract Harassment Insured and Bonded 10 years in business www.acmbuildingservices.com $ Cpl.

Ron AllenThe smell of fried food warmly welcomed visitors from the moment they pulled into the parking lot at St. Marks Greek Orthodox Church for the annual Boca Raton Greek Festival. And it didnt seem to matter how many people poured into the dining tent either an army of volunteers was ready and armed with gyros (pronounced YEER-ohs), souvlaki and baklava and other pastries. The lines were no match. Things are just wonderful, Fa ther Mark Leondis said Sunday, the last of the four-day event. Hundreds of people are coming out to help us express our faith and our culture. We started this morning with our liturgy where we give thanks to the Lord Jesus Christ. And now, were just sharing and rejoicing in the day. Parishioners who cooked like they would at home using copious amounts of garlic, lemon and oregano prepared the menu of Greek specialties. Now in its 31st year, the festival, dubbed Passport to Greece, also featured performances of traditional Greek music and dancing, with some participants sporting traditional Greek clothing. The family-oriented event also offered the chance to learn how to dance to Greek music and tours of St. Marks Church to discover Greek religious tra ditions. First and foremost, we have our church, Leondis said. Second we have all the different delicious food. Then we have of course, our beautiful Greek music and dancing and thats part of our culture, which for us is something that goes hand in hand with our faith because its how we celebrate life. Festival enthusiasts Tonya Diamant and Kanella Fotopoulos, both Greek natives, said they made a point to come every day of the annual festival.Traditional Food, Fun, Music, Dancing at Boca Greek Festival Boys and girls perform a traditional dance, for the audience at the Greek Festival, at St. St. Marks Greek Orthodox Church for the 31st Annual Boca Raton Greek Festival.

Both critics and art enthusiasts consider ArtPalmBeach one of the most influential contemporary art fairs on Floridas Gold Coast since its opening in 1997.Over 70 international galleries presented works of contemporary art at ArtPalmBeach 2013. By Samantha Mellman Andre de Paula Barbosa days living in in a foreclosed waterfront mansion may be coming to an end soon as Bank of America is suing to evict him, officials said. There is a certain legal process we are required by law to follow and we have filed the appropriate action, according to a statement released by the bank. The bank is taking this situation seriously and we will work diligently to resolve this matter. Repeated calls to Bank of America seeking additional comments were not returned. Barbosa, 23, managed to get into the foreclosed property at 580 Golden Harbour Drive last year using a loophole to stay there. Barbosa has invoked an obscure Florida real estate law to stake his claim on the 7,522-squarefoot, 5-bedroom palace that fea tures canal views and whose interior includes pillars, a curved staircase and marbled bath. Barbosa, who the bank says in court papers is liable for more than $15,000 for breaking into the house, could not be reached for comment. Neighbors have called the police at least three times in the past two months to inform them that Barbosa had been staying there. Each time police arrived, Barbosa showed them documents he received from the Palm Beach County Property Appraisers Office showing he had all rights to be on the property under the state law. There is not much police can do without the cooperation of the owner of the property. A police officer said he contacted bank officials who said they would create a work order to secure the property and post no trespassing signs. I explained that the "No Trespassing" signs cannot be legally enforced by police without a representative being able to be reached at the time of the trespass or placing an appropriate City of Boca Raton no trespassing sign on the property once a trespass affidavit has been completed by Bank of America, Officer T.N. Gentilcore wrote. He stated he did not have the authority to do anything else at this time. Gentilcore also contacted Bank of America Corporate Security to speak with the person responsible for managing the property for the bank, however again he was transferred several times and later told by a phone representative that "the people who manage a particular property change day to day and week to week," he wrote. It could be the end of his stay in the posh neighborhood that has caught worldwide media attention and the beginning of something that neighbors have been hoping for.Bank Goes After Squatter in $2.5M Mansion

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. Do You Like Showing Up or Just Showing Off? By Douglas HeizerTHOUGHTS FROM THE PUBLISHER Leave me Alone! I know what to doMika HakkinenOver the last couple of weeks some very interesting things have happened. However, life needs to move on, as does the business. After almost four years, Dale King is no longer the editor of the paper. After many rumors, and speculation from people as to what really happened, I have decided to make a statement to clear the air once and for all. This is what happened: Nothing. Dale is a terrific journalist and a very well-known person in our city. However, the time came for him to move on. I didnt think it was fair to keep Dale here if it hurt his chances of getting a better and more profitable job elsewhere. Dale and I are still friends, in fact even more now than when I began the paper. This was not the only change we made to the paper; we have also changed our distribution. We are now delivering our newspaper across Hillsboro Boulevard, between Hillsboro Beach and Parkland. Not only are we distributing in more places, we have also changed the methodology. We will no longer deliver free paper to homes. Readers who want the pa per deliver at their home will need to buy one of our mail subscription plans. However, we have added a couple of innovative ways to have our newspaper in the hands of the people, and we also have kept our newspaper racks all around the city. Building a community newspa per is a lot like having a blog supported by groups with personal interests. We dont have easy money. Our only commitment is keep the citizens informed and let them make their own decisions. Money cant buy love. Money cant buy peoples choices, just try to remember what happened in the last local elections. It was clear that our newspaper had a relevant influence in peoples choices. One candidate prioritized and placed ads in our local newspaper and he won. This showed where people are looking to get their news. We need to make money to print and we need make the decision based on what we have. As you can notice, we have less than 50 percent of our pages advertisements. We decided not be a shopper or penny saver type of newspaper, we also did not decide to be a blog with an agenda and receive money from supporters to write what they want us to write. We decided to be your news provider and this has a price. This is why I made the title of this weeks column a quote from one of the most experienced Formula one drivers in the world, and a two-time world champion. While Mika Hakkinen was in the lead and wining a grand prix, his team manager, who was seated back at the garage, kept telling him what to do though the radio. Hakkinen simply told him: Leave me Alone, I know what to do! The message is simple: Sit in my place, and drive the car! Love you Boca, keep tuning in and God Bless you all.There is a major difference between showing up and showing off. The first is primarily for the benefit of others though you, yourself, shall unquestionably also gain a lot by being present. The latter, however, is just a form of prideful exhibitionism of some sort. Its also possible to combine the two for unworthy, selfish motives; you show up at certain events exclusively for the purpose of showing off; instead of thinking about any good you can bring to a public event, even if merely on account of your personal presence, you only anticipate the opportunities for selfadvertising! You show your face at places and events in the expectation of the praise and applause of others, instead of a genuine interest for the happening occurring, which you are visiting! Showing off is something easy to detect, and its not a quality ever appreciated by those who observe it, even when no word is said about it. Actually, it leaves a bad taste in those who accurately recognize your intentions and selfish motives. People dont need to stand in judg ment to ascertain that such is the case because it is most obvious from the start! Showing up, on the other hand, is something generally welcome and appreciated by others, especially those who may have issued the invitation for ones presence and/or participation at an event, a home visit, or a meeting of some kind. Your presence, in such cases, denotes that you value the occasion and those who extended their hospitality to you! There are times when showing up may also take place apart from any personal invitation received. The knowledge of a friend or neighbor being infirm at a hospital can inspire you to make a visit, which is deeply appreciated by the patient and the family. Reading the obituary of someone from a family you know, and showing up for the service, brings comfort to those mourning, along with their tremendous gratitude to you which theyll retain for a long time. Cases can be multiplied very easily. The important distinction is for you to recognize the value of showing up at varied happenings, while avoiding showing off at any time or situation which will never upgrade your status but it can certainly diminish it!

Edition 13211for news 24/7 go to bocaratontribune.com www.bocaratontribune.comFebruary 1, through February 7, 2013 Divorce Florida StyleBy Mike Gora ColumnistsThe Boca Raton Tribune VIOLATION and MODIFICATIONMichael H. Gora has been certified by the Board of Education and Specialization of The Florida Bar as a specialist in family and matrimonial law and is a partner with Shapiro Blasi Wasserman & Gora P.A. in Boca Raton. Mr. Gora can be reached at mhgora@sbwlawfirm.com. Q: My former wife and I have one child, a son now five years of age. When we were divorced two years ago we entered into a Parenting Plan which called for me to have typical access rights to our son, alternating weekends with four over nights each weekend. In the original case she had counsel and I did not. During the first few months after our agreement and the entry of the final judgment incorporating that agreement, and others, my former wife announced that our son was not yet ready to have overnights with me because of the disruption of our marriage and various illnesses that she claimed he suffered. Ultimately she just refused to allow me to have any overnights with my son, and I have had none. To be clear, there have been no accusations whatsoever against my ability to take care of our son during overnights. I know that I have some paths through the legal system to correct this breach of our parenting agreement but I have tried to avoid conflict and save expenses. I have decided to take the bull by the horns and try to enforce my rights. What is my next step? What remedies are available to me? A: There are at least two remedies which are open to you. You can file a motion for contempt against your former wife for having violated the Final Judgment of Dissolution of marriage, because that incorporated your parenting plan. This would ultimately get you a court order holding your former wife in contempt of court by her frequent violation of the final judg ment and parenting Plan. The courts order would come accompanied by a strong verbal admonition in open court and a threat that if she continued to deny you access to your son she could be put in jail for contempt, either civil or criminal. Her past performance can also provide you grounds to file a Petition for Modification of the parenting plan asking the judge to provide you with the lions share of the overnights and your former wife with the alternate weekends. Grounds for a modification require a material change of circumstances which appear to be permanent, and were not voluntary on your part. Florida appellate decisions would allow the court to find that her unilateral change in the parenting provisions in your Parenting Plan and Final judgment meet the criteria. This second road is more complex than the first; a change in the parenting arrangement carries with it a re-calculation in your child support obligations because of the shift of overnights to you from your former wife. New financial affidavits would have to be filed and some financial discovery accomplished to verify your respective incomes. In order for you to be successful in either or both of the remedies you will have to be represented by experienced counsel.Resisting DiscouragementFAITHBy Rick Warren Most of us feel fairly self-sufficient. When a crisis arises, we do whatever is necessary, work through the problem, and move on. What happens, however, when we do everything we know to do and the crisis remains? Often we then adopt the motto, When all else fails, pray. But what happens when even your prayers go unanswered? If you feel discouraged because of Gods delay in answering your prayers, understand the delay does not mean denial. Just because the answer or the miracle hasnt come yet that does not mean God is not going to answer, or that He has forgotten you, or that He does not care about you. It simply means, Not yet! Spiritual maturity is knowing the difference between No and Not yet the difference between a denial and a delay. The Bible tells us, He who is coming will come and will not delay (Hebrews 10:37). The delay may be a test of your patience. Anyone can be pa tient once, and even twice. And, just about anybody can be patient three times. So God may choose to test your patience again and again and again, until you think you cannot be patient any longer. Why does He do this? To determine how patient you are? No, He already knows that. He delays his answer to reveal to YOU how patient you are. In this way you will discover what is inside of you, and be able to understand your level of commitment. God tests your patience so that you can know He is faithful, even if the answers you seek are delayed. If you have become discouraged, turn this negative emotion around by remembering God teaches you patience during times of delay. Ask him to transform your discouragement into patience. You may be going through difficult times right now and feel like running away or dropping off the planet. You have become discouraged because the situation you face at work, in your home, in your finances or your health seems unmanageable, unreasonable, or even unfair. It may seem unbearable and inside you find yourself basically declaring, God, I cant take it anymore. I just cant take it anymore! But you can. You can endure, staying with the situation longer because God is with you. He will enable you to press on, if you are willing to trust Him and rely on Him. Remember, you are never a failure until you quit. Do not quit. Resist discouragement and finish the race God has set before you. As it says in the Scriptures, You need to persevere so that when you have done the will of God, you will receive what he has promised. For in just a very little while, He who is coming will come and will not delay (Hebrews 10:36-37). Adapted from a column by Dr. Rick Warren, the author of numerous books, including the highly acclaimed, The PurposeDrive Life, which has been translated into many languages and sold throughout the world. It affirms the importance of having a carefully considered, clearly expressed purpose to guide everyday life. Most recently, he also has written The Purpose of Christmas.

12 -Edition 132 February 1, through February 7, 2013 www.bocaratontribune.com Does DESIGN MATTER? Douglas A. MummawIt seems very relevant, that with the passing of Apple Founder and Master Genius Steve Jobs, that potentially everyone who has ever purchased an Apple product has been exposed to a commitment to Design Excellence. Congruently, the hardware, software interface and the packaging of the Apple product exemplified the finite detailing that makes an object beautiful. Steve Jobs forever changed how technology impacts our lives yet he never relented his passion for creating well DESIGNED Products. Can Place Making Architecture create the same impact? Boca Ratons Downtown has already proven that Design Matters. Mizner Park, achieving its 20th anniversary has been identified by the New Urbanism as one of the best planned and constructed Urban Spaces in America for the last 25 years. We have all been there to shop, dine, get a Starbucks fix or see a concert. These utilitarian functions are necessary adjuncts to our daily routine. However, have you ever truly noticed how many visitors go there to stroll along the loggias and plaza? These momentary gatherings at the fountain or gazebos to watch live entertainment are what energize the Space. The scale of the trees overhead, the texture and multi color pattern of the pavers gently dissolving into velvet feeling grass. It is also the introduction of water in the artistically tiled fountains that serves as both an audible and reflective sensory forces. Why do Special Spaces evoke the emotional and haptic sensory feelings that draw us there? For thousands of years, architects, artists, builders, owners and governmental entities have been Collaborating to create such spaces for their citizens to enjoy. Piazza San Marco, Times Square, St Peters Square and on and on.... The leadership of any City realizes that to create a Community, there must be opportunities for the residents to gather, enjoy each others company, participate in activities and of course engage in commerce. The City of Boca Raton has been promoting this initiative since the early 80s when the Community Redevelopment Agency was formed. Since then, many passionate Urbanites(City Planners, Architects, Lawyers & Private Citizens) who tirelessly wrote the downtown code, lobbied for its funding, cultivated the Mizneresque Architectural guidelines and then created the momentum of ACTION to build. Mizner Park is now a 25 year legacy project recognized throughout the world as a model in Remarkable Urban Space Creation. This place is in our Downtown. Yes, we have a Downtown. It is full of local businesses, retail stores, incredible restaurants, art studios, civic venues, parks, cinema and live theaters, all within a 10 minute walk. The recent improvements for the Promenade continues to thread the necessary fabric together, that with time, will become a metaphoric quilt of Boca Raton. Come experience this important addition to our Community on October 21st & 22nd. I am certain you will see and experience the essence of why creative Urban Planning is enhancing the Downtown. There will more specific Case Studies in the near future where the Back-Story on what creates the special urban/pedestrian spaces in our downtown will be explored and continue to demonstrate why DESIGN MATTERS......

Edition 131B1Section B February 1, through February 7, 2013www.bocaratontribune.com An Exhilarating First Sunshine Blues Festival at Mizner ParkENTERTAINMENT See page B2 The Boca Raton Tribune B Section B Boca See page B3PICCOLINO BRINGS ITALY TO YOUR PLATE FOOD REVIEWBy Skip SheffieldThe world premiere of Gloucester Blue is some wicked good fun for the second offering of Theatre at the Arts Garage, running through Feb. 17 at 180 NE First St., Delray Beach. We had the privilege of attending opening night with the great playwright Israel Horovitz in attendance. Horowitz has written some tragic, gripping stuff in his huge (more than 70 plays) output of stage and cinema. Horowitz also has a wicked sense of humor. If you are from New England the word wicked does not necessarily mean evil or nefarious. It is more an adjective that means extremely or very. Yes, Gloucester Blue is a very funny play, but it is also wicked in the original definition of the word. All four characters are up to no good, for different reasons. The setting, by Stephen Placido, is an old packing house in the historic blue-collar fishing village of Gloucester, Mass. Gloucester has seen better days, but like so many places gifted with physical beauty, the waterfront is being transformed by wealthy upwardly-mobile types. Stumpy (David Michael Sirois) is a battered, salt-of-the-earth man who aspires for more. He is a painting contrac tor who has hired Latham (Stephen G. Anthony), a fellow Massachusetts na tive with a shady past, as his helper for a rush job for a wealthy couple. Latham is a loud, outgoing type who loves the raucous local favorites Aerosmith played at high volume. Stumpy prefers the intellectual enrichment of NPR. The men spackle, sand and paint between banter. When the wife of the owner, Lexi (Andrea Conte) makes her entrance, Latham can immediately see there is hanky-panky going on. Sexy Lexi is a Harvard-educated lawyer and daughter of a judge, but she like to walk on the wild side with the gratefully accommodating Stumpy. Lexis husband Bummy (Michael St. Pierre) is the archetypical upper-class twit; born into wealth and privilege, but devoid of ambition or maturity. Bummy also has his shady side, and with his pent-up rage, you just know something is going to pop in this vola tile situation. There is something satisfying in seeing characters who had it coming duly punished. Gloucester Blue is more farce than drama, but it is highly entertaining highjinks and low-blows by adults who should know better. It is no coincidence that Horovitz is much admired by the French, who appreciate the fine art of farce. Stephen G. Anthony is a hulking, large-framed actor with keen intelligence; perfect for the role of the devious, dangerous Latham. Andrea Conte is an actress not too shy to exude sex, and Michael St. Pierre is spot-on as a downtrodden soul only too happy to sample forbidden fruit. Bummy is a straw man impossible to admire or even sympathize with, and Michael St. Pierre makes him as insufferable as possible, short of making him a complete fool. Louis Tyrrell has directed this agile quartet with deadly accuracy for laughter most foul. As a side benefit, Sirois and Anthony are honing home decorating skills that could come in handy between acting gigs. Tickets are $30-$40.

February 1, through February 7, 2013 www.bocaratontribune.com B2 Edition 131 Section B Entertainment Skip SheffieldAn Exhilarating First Sunshine Blues Festival at Mizner ParkIt rained but it didnt pour and the fans came anyway to the first Sunshine Blues Festival at Mizner Park Amphitheater. My brother and I arrived late because we had a gig of our own, but we were able to catch the main headliners. Matt Schofield is a young British blues man with a bright future. He wails on his Fender Strat and does some good blues shouting. He is also a very friendly guy. He hung out by the stage door, greeted fans and gladly gave out autographs. Dr. John was looking and sounding fit. His New Orleans-style outfit included a female backup singer who also played the trombone with flair. I had never heard of Joe Louis walker before this festival. He has been around a long time (hes about my age), but only recently signed to Alligator records. Walker is an excellent guitarist and a powerful singer. What I really liked was his sense of humor. Who says the blues must be depressing? His young band is really hot too. The main attraction was the husband-and-wife team of Susan Tedeschi and Derek Trucks. I first saw Derek when he was a young guitarist playing the Musicians Exchange in Fort Lauderdale. I saw singer-guitarist Tedeschi first when she had her own band. Both Tedeschi and Trucks have gotten better every time Ive heard them. I can say without reservation that Trucks is one of the best guitarists in the world today, both with slide and fingers. Tedeschi is the best female singer in the blues today, and it doesnt hurt that she is so attractive too. Together TedeschiTrucks are the power couple of American blues. If you missed them you have another chance when they play the Wanee Festival April 18-20 in Live Oak, Florida. Palm Beach Poetry Festival in Delray Beach Poets and poetry have taken over Delray Beach in the vicinity of Old School Square through Saturday, Jan. 26. The festival was the recipient of this years Muse Award for Outstanding Arts & Cultural Organization (budget under $500,000) from the Cultural Council of Palm Beach County. Go to www.palmbeachpoetryfestival.org for a schedule, or call 561-868-2063. Love is Blue and Beautiful in Amour There has been a lot of critical buzz about Amour, which is up for an Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film. It features two of Frances best, oldest actors, Jean-Louis Trintignant and Emmanuelle Riva, directed by Michael Haneke, who also wrote the story. To say this is a sad love story would be understating the fact. Now in their 80s, Georges and Anne are still very much in love. But as so often happens in old age, one of them suffers a stroke, and the other must become caretaker, with increasing difficulty. Amour is infused with melancholy classical music, as both characters are musicians, as is their daughter Eva, played by Isabelle Huppert. Amour shows what happens when love is put to its ultimate test. Wonderfully acted, it is both sad and wistfully beautiful.

Edition 131B3Section B February 1, through February 7, 2013www.bocaratontribune.com PICCOLINO BRINGS ITALY TO YOUR PLATE Food Review Marc Kent Leonora and Roberto Vacca present a very selective menu at Piccolino78 South Federal Highway in Boca Raton (561395-8858). This 50 seat neat little bistro has choice dishes at reasonable prices for dinners. Open from 5PM to 10PM each night except Sundays, Chef Roberto offers daily specials in addition to the permanent menu. Offered eight starters, we get to try their minestrone and found this soup well above parchock full of fine veggies tasty, tasty! We had been offered complimentary stuffed and breaded black olives plus hot bread with oil and/ or butter. Eggplant Parmigiana was very tasty and worth ordering, the Caesar salad was fresh but needed a bit more creamy anchovy flavor we asked for and received anchovy pieces to kick up the dish. Mixed green salads, calamari fritti, arugula with cheese, mozzarella caprese are listed as is an antipasto Italiano for two diners. We sampled gnocchi Sorentinathe days choice which was rich and filling as was one or our favorites, Fettuccine Alfredo excellent dish with a very rich creamy sauce. The spaghetti with clams was so so as the tiny clams had very little taste. Four other pasta dishes are listed. We started sampling main courses with the two daily specialsa huge portion of Veal Parmigiana with superb taste as was the Filet of Sole Francese if either is on your menu for for them! We had a great Veal Piccata lovely lemon sauce and plenty of capers. Fresh dishes we heard the Chef pounding out the veal! Chicken Paillard and Chicken Milanese, Veal Marsala and Veal Francese plus Snapper alla Livornese and Salmon with broccoli rabe and mushrooms round out the main course standard menu. We tasted the Marcherita Pizza a 10 inch pie, very tasty indeed. Next time we most sample their other pizza offering Prosciutto e Arugula. Serving only beer and wine, we noted 9 whites by bottle, 18 reds by bottle, 2 sparking bottles and 7 house wines by the glass Connie and Bob chose a red Pinot Noir and a white Pinot Grigio and were quite pleased. Amsel light, Coors Light, Miller Lite, Heineken and Peroni are the beers available. Desserts available were tira misu and cannoli plus a trio of sorbets. Opened in 2010, Piccolino offers quality food and realistic pricing with very personal service. We suggest youGo and Enjoy! bocaratontribune.com By Skip SheffieldThree old pros team with young actor-director Fisher Stevens and novice screenwriter Noah Haidle for the crazy crime caper comedy Stand Up Guys. Al Pacino is one stand up guy named Val. Christopher Walken is his best buddy Doc. Alan Arkin is their former wheel man, Richard Hirsch. The trio was a team of lower-level criminals before a bust 30-odd years ago. Val took the fall for the gang rather than ratting them out, and for his silence he was rewarded with a 28year stretch in the penitentiary. Doc picks up Val from the slammer. They go to Docs crummy apartment and Doc insists they need a big night on the town. Unbeknownst to Val, Doc is under orders to liquidate Val from the vengeful local crime boss Claphands (Mark Margolis), whose son Val rubbed out. The deadline is 10 a.m. the next morning, or terrible things will happen to Doc and his innocent granddaughter (Addison Timlin). So the guys head for a night of Viagra, hookers, dancing and booze, springing their old driver Hirsch (Alan Arkin) from a nursing home in the process. To demonstrate how preposterous the story is, the guys handily steal a new Dodge Challenger, which Hirsch drives like Mario Andretti despite having been hooked up to oxygen moments before. Then they set off on a merry chase pursued by half the Los Angeles Police force, eluding them handily, and then continuing the spree as if nothing had happened, never to be bothered by the cops again. Alan Arkin could make the Real Yellow Pages funny, but sadly his part amounts to only a cameo. After all the old guy jokes peter out, we are left with Val, Doc and the inevitable showdown. Even at their level of fame and acclaim, maybe actors the caliber of Pacino, Walken and Arkin crave the work regardless of the script. Maybe they just need the money. Whatever the reason, you should save your moneyunless you get a kick out of seeing great actors slumming. Two starsOld Pros, Old Jokes and Preposterous Stand Up Guys

February 1, through February 7, 2013 www.bocaratontribune.com B6 Edition 131 Section B Lets Talk Life & Style Kay RenzThe buzz in the beauty blogosphere about Giorgio Armanis Maestro Fusion Makeup was on the lips of women waiting on line at Neiman Marcus, Boca Raton to meet Premier Face Designer, Antonio Costa. Ive heard so much about it, said customer Linda Carson. But I wanted to experience it at an event like this where I could learn proper application from Armani experts. Costa who oozes charm, and obviously loves his role as a teacher, explained that while many women are calling this new product a foundation, its really a revolutionary complexion perfector. Its magical, he said. There has never been anything like it. The texture is amazing, it just blends into your skin and disappearsleaving incredibly perfected skin. The feel is unbelievably lightweight but it covers trouble spots with ease. The tiny amount of product that is needed truly surprised the guests getting makeovers. Women who were used to layering on foundation to cover flaws, we shocked how just a drop or two of Maestro Fusion transformed their faces. You need very little product, said Costa. Just use a little bit in the center of your face and blend outward. It is super lightweight and very easy to apply. Costa suggested using finger application. You dont need to use a brush with this to get that perfected look, he explained. And just watch how it doesnt get into pores and lines.thats due to Armanis technology. The unforgettable and unique texture created by this patented Fusion Technology delivers the thinnest color film that blends perfectly and corrects skin imperfections without buildup. As the Boca women were having wow moments, Costa talked with me about how much he loves being able to do these events. Teaching is so important to me. Just handing a woman product does nothing. Showing her how to use it, how to be more beautiful and how it will make her life easiernow that is what I am excited about. For South Florida women, Costa especially felt Maestro Fusion was going to be huge. We are selling out all over the country,he said. But South Florida women are truly going to appreciate this because of their active lifestyles. They want application to be easy they dont want to look like they are wearing makeup, yet they want to look amazing. Costa also felt that the Spring palette will be a huge hit here. Women love these small compacts with their blush and shadows all in one. Trend-wise, he stressed pops of pink and coral on the cheeks with pastel and nude lips. Its joyful, playful and colorful, he said. Sums up the Boca woman pretty well! Exibit at Boca Raton Museum of Art Celebrates 50 Years of Fashion I am so looking forward to attending the gala opening of the latest exibit a the Boca Raton Museum of Art: IMPACT: 50 Years of the CFDA. I will bring you all the fabulous party pictures and share my take on the presentations that will showcase an array of designer garments and accessories, along with interactive touch screen displays that illustrate a timeline of American fashion with illustrations from nearly 600 designers who make up the CFDA.

24 -Edition 132 February 1, through February 7, 2013 www.bocaratontribune.comBusinessThe Boca Raton Tribune Business NewsWhile it may not yet be known which PGA legend will leave Boca Raton with the coveted 2013 Allianz Championship trophy and share of the $1.8 million purse until the final round concludes on Sunday, February 10th, it is already clear who the real champions will be: the greater Boca Raton community and area businesses. As 70,000 spectators; 600+ volunteers, 50+ golf leg ends such as Corey Pavin, Tom Lehman, Bernhard Langer, Mark Calcavecchia, and Fuzzy Zoeller and more descend on Boca Raton, the impact on local charities and the economy will greatly ascend. Tournament Director Ryan Dillon sees the big picture. The goal each year is simple: to showcase and promote the City of Boca Raton by producing a premiere event that increases business and awareness for the tournament and its main beneficiary the Boca Raton Regional Hospital, said Dillon. He added that the tournament, sponsors, stakeholders, and even Champions Tour players all look forward each year to driving even more charitable support as fellow members of the Boca Raton community. Boca Raton Champions Golf Charities President and JM Lexus President and General Manager Jim Dunn noted that the longstanding partnership between the Allianz Championship and the Boca Ra ton community has led to numerous fundraising opportunities for area nonprofits, such as the annual Birdies Fore Charity program in which participating nonprofits keep 100% of pledges collected depending on how many birdies are made by the players during the three tournament rounds. 2012 participants included 4KIDS of South Florida, Big Brothers Big Sisters, Autism Society of Broward County, Boca Helping Hands and more. Last year, the tournament raised more than $350,000 in net proceeds for the BRCGC and BRRH, a number Dillon would like to see surpassed in 2013. Produced by the nonprofit BRCGC board that oversees tournament operations, financials and distribution of all charitable funds, the Allianz Championship will continue to chip-in big benefits on many levels. Among those who stand to gain the most: featured in significant regional and national print, broadcast, online and social media as eyes around the globe will view the live coverage by The Golf Channel. More than $1.3 million in media exposure was garnered for Boca Raton on Golf Channel during last years tournament, with coverage reaching 4.9 million viewers across 150 million households in 174 countries. The City is featured in the tourna ments new PGA Champions Tour history-making messaging: It All Starts In Boca references that two recently two Allianz Championship champions, Bernhardt Langer and Tom Lehman, went on to win consecutively the yearlong pursuit for the Charles Schwab Cup. The tournament continues to be an ac tive part of and an steadfast advocate for the Boca Raton community, not just during tournament week, but all year round, added Tournament Director Ryan Dillon.

Most recently, BRRH was recognized by Healthgrades, the nations leading independent healthcare ratings organization, as a Distinguished Hospital for Clinical Excellence for the ninth year in a row a claim only 34 of the nations 5,000 hospitals can make. This prestigious distinc tion places Boca Raton Regional Hospital among the top 5% of hospitals nationwide for clinical performance. This latest accolade for Boca Raton Regional Hospital adds to a growing list of honors. In addition to the 2013 Distinguished Hospital Award, the Hospital is also the recipient of Healthgrades 2013 Americas Best 100 Hospitals for Cardiac Care and Gastrointestinal Care for the second consecutive year. o Boca Helping HandsFor the first time, all leftover foods will be donated from tournament catering to this vital community-based 501(c)(3) organization that serves nutritious hot lunches three days a week and gives bags of groceries to families in need.

Seven-year sponsors include Allianz Life of North America, Insperity, JM Lexus (official vehicle of the tournament), City of Boca Raton, 3M, Palm Beach County Sports Commission, Penn Florida Companies, Flagler Development, Kaye Communications, Palm Beach County Convention and Visitors Bureau, and Office Depot. Many multi-year partners and sponsors also support the Allianz Championship in the community, including Florida Atlantic University and the Boca Raton Bridge Hotel (presenting sponsor of the Grapes On The Green Golf & Wine Experience). The last three years at the hotel, weve been fortunate to have over 1,200 room nights of business directly related to the [Allianz Championship] tournament, said John Valence, Senior Sales Manager at the Wyndham Hotel Boca Raton.

Retaining the Smart Group last year, an orga nization of ecologists, scientists, educators, and academic researchers who help clients make sound decisions about environmental management, and working in collaboration with partners Broken Sound Club, Southern Waste Systems and the International Green Energy Council, the tournament developed a comprehensive carbon footprint analysis to set green benchmarks. The plan included the education of spectators, players and vendors about the benefits of going green in their daily business and personal spaces. While plans to up the game on the green to become even greener continue in 2013, its 2012 achievements included the following: recycled ment carbon footprint ment diesel generators and fuel products throughout the year, from business cards to plastic PVC tournament sig nage. After the close of the Allianz Championships tournament play, a PGA pro will hoist the trophy and pose with an oversized check but its clear who the real winner is. Boca Raton has scored a hole-in-one with this partnership and created a legacy that will have lasting effects on its community for years to come.WHEN PGA CHAMPIONS TOURS ALLIANZ CHAMPIONSHIP TEES OFF IN BOCA, THE REAL CHAMPIONS WILL BE THE COMMUNITY AND AREA BUSINESSES

26 -Edition 132 February 1, through February 7, 2013 www.bocaratontribune.comBusiness News Republican Party Must Get Good, Firm Grasp on Reality CARLO BARBIERIBy Carlo Barbieri On the morning of Nov. 7, 2012, virtually every Republican in the United States awoke with a splitting headache and a deep sense of unreality. Had the nation crossed over into the Twilight Zone, they asked. No. Barack Obama, the man that many presumed could never win a second term in the Oval Office because his first term, they felt, was an utter disaster, was punching his ticket for a ride back to the White House for another four years. Not only that, but many Democrats particularly here in Palm Beach County and its environs were elected to various offices, some of them ousting sitting Republicans, others defeating GOP candidates that many felt were more popular. Lois Frankel, former mayor of West Palm Beach, a woman known to be tough on friends and foes, defeated nice guy Adam Hasner for Congress in District 22. Republican Allen West, the much honored military man who rose up to win a Congressional seat in 2010, lost it in 2012 to a South Florida accountant. Now, the Republicans are doing the accounting. Just what the heck happened on that fateful day in November 2012? The assessments are still coming in and most are pretty harsh. Many say GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney, despite his eloquence and his efforts to humanize himself, was still viewed by many as an elitist. He campaigned on a platform that promised to create jobs. Apparently, many Americans dont want jobs. President Obama has created his own needy class, people who get extended unemployment benefits, food stamps, government-paid Medicaid, Supplemental Security Income, utility bill assistance, housing assistance and other nanny allotments. Clearly, the American Dream does not consist of a good job and a healthy paycheck with livable benefits. Its the flatscreen TV and the big lounge chair with a remote control on a nearby table, right next to a pile of government aid checks. Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal, a Republican himself, was one of the first post-election critics, telling the GOP to end dumbed-down conservatism by putting a stop to offensive, bizarre comments. It is no secret we had a number of Republicans damage our brand this year with offensive, bizarre comments -enough of that, Jindal told Politico. Its not going to be the last time anyone says something stupid within our party, but it cant be tolerated Weve also had enough of this dumbed-down conserva tism. We need to stop being simplistic, we need to trust the intelligence of the American people and we need to stop insulting the intelligence of the voters. Other Republicans have attempted to explain the GOPs election failure in less harsh terms. Karl Rove gave nearly two dozen reasons for Republicans election night losses while 2012 Republican Vice Presidential candidate Paul Ryan said urban areas gave Obama the boost he needed to win. But the real question is: With a horrible economy, soaring food and gas prices, millions on food stamps, not to mention suspicious scandals like Fast and Furious and the Libyan debacle, how on earth did Barack Obama get re-elected, especially just two years after the unprec edented Republican victories in the 2010 mid-term elections? Why, after almost four years of massive deficits and stag gering debt, all of it racked up by Obama and the Democrats, did an astonishing 50+ percent of voters say they still blamed the economy on George Bush? How is that even possible? We feel the answer is marketing and the message. Republicans have always tended to speak over the heads of the little people and that includes not only the middle class, but minorities both of color and ethnicity. In 2012, Republicans had nothing to market to blacks, Hispanics, students voting for the first time and the masses who have become comfortable living off government doles. As Fox Network commentator Bill OReilly predicted on elec tion night, the winner would be chosen by the people who get stuff from the government. In a world replete with TV commercials, Internet pop-up ads and signs on the sides of buses, trains and taxis, it should be clear to Republicans that the message is the thing. They should take a lesson from the Democrats who sell their message relentlessly, forcefully and with language that is simple, vivid, and emotional. Even when the product is flawed in this case an ever increasing dictatorial nanny state the right marketing campaign works. Thus, Republicans should turn from policies to promotion. If they want to survive as a party, the GOP had better get back to the kinds of conservative principles that have always worked. But then they must learn how to sell capitalism and smaller government using the kind of language that everyone can understand. The GOP must also shed its image as a party of exclusion and promote what Republicans do best supporting capitalism and job creation ideas that have worked in the US and abroad. Surely with its record of success throughout history, free market capitalism should be downright easy to vigorously promote, let alone meekly defend.

Edition 13229for news 24/7 go to bocaratontribune.com www.bocaratontribune.comFebruary 1, through February 7, 2013SportsThe Boca Raton Tribune Sports Former Barclays Premier League defender and French international Pascal Chimbonda will join the group of more than 60 players aiming to impress coaches at the NASL Combine in Florida next month. Recognized as a pathway to playing professional soccer in the United States, the third annual NASL Combine is attracting players from around the world and will be held from February 1-3 at Lockhart Stadium, home of the NASLs Fort Lauderdale Strikers. Last season, nine players realized their dreams, as they were signed by NASL teams, including Fort Lauderdales Mark Anderson, who finished third in goals scored (11) and was the league-leader in shots attempted during the 2012 season. Anderson went from the NASL Combine to the Strikers to being named to the NASL Best XI team at the end of the 2012 season. A total of 68 players from Canada, Colombia, Costa Rica, Egypt, England, France, New Zealand, Panama, Spain, Trinidad & Tobago, Uruguay, Venezuela and the United States will be put through their paces under the watchful eyes of NASL coaches. Among the players attending the Combine are midfielder Laurent Merlin, formerly of Chivas USA in MLS, who has been capped by France at youth level; forward David Santama ria, who played two years in the NASL with Fort Lauderdale and Atlanta; and midfielder Yoximar Granado another former member of the Strikers from Colombia. Chimbonda, 33, has enjoyed a stellar career that includes more than 150 appearances in the top flight of English football with Wigan Athletic, Tottenham Hotspur, Sunderland, and Blackburn Rovers. He was named to the PFA Barclays Premier League Best XI after the 2005-06 season. This will be the third consecutive year the NASL has held a February combine, which will be attended by coaches from every NASL team as they look to add to their playing squad ahead of the 2013 Spring Season Opening Kick on April 6.More than 60 players to attend NASL Combine including former English Premier League defenderBy: Pedro HeizerBoca Raton Native, and U.S. Soccer star Jozy Altidore was the target of racist chants on Tuesday, January 29 during a Dutch Cup game. Altidore who plays for Dutch-side AZ Alkmaar was taunted during a quarterfinal match against FC Den Bosch, a second-tier team. After the match, Altidore spoke to the Dutch media about the incident and said he will pray for the fans who taunted him. Its a bit dissapointing that these things still happen, said the 23-year old Boca Raton Native. But what are you going to do? You just have to hope that these people find a way to improve themselves. After hearing the chants, Den Bosch officials warned the fans over the speakers to stop, what was reported by AZs official twitter feed, as jungle sounds directed towards Altidore. Referee Reinold Wiedemeijer wanted to stop the match in the first half, but Altidore persuaded him not to. I feel like as a football player that I have an obligation, to my team, to my club, to my family to not react to things like this, explained Altidore. I want to show them that club stands better than that and that I was raised better than that than respond to such ridiculous behavior. We were in a good rhythm and it was important for us to keep going. I think we started the New Year right and you have to look at the bigger pic ture, added Altidore. Altidores teammate, Viktor Elm, also added a few words on the subject to the Dutch media, The fans that misbehaved towards Altidore should be ashamed. I, like everybody else, am really disappointed in these supporters. It is a bad time for professional football. It is not something I have experienced in my career before. Despite all that, Altidore was still able to score on a penalty kick, adding to his goal total for the season, he has now scored 20 goals in 27 matches and eight goals alone in the past sic matches. Jozy handled it really well. He has not been tempted to respond. He was emotional after his penalty, added Elm. In a release, Altidore added Racism remains prevalent in the world. The only thing you can pray for is a positive outcome from situations like these. You hope parents and coaches of young, impressionable athletes not just soccer players are told that what happened today isnt right. It is never acceptable. FC Den Bosch pledged Wednesday to do all it can to identify and punish a group of fans who hurled racist abuse at Altidore during a match. Den Bosch said fans responsible for the monkey chants Tuesday in the Dutch Cup match against Altidores AZ Alkmaar do not belong in the De Vliert (Stadium) and will face the toughest possible sanctions. (The fans) totally ruined weeks of preparations with monkey chants, throwing things at match officials and not showing respect for those on and around the pitch, Den Bosch said.Boca Raton Native Victim of Racist Chants In Soccer Match

30 -Edition 132 February 1, through February 7, 2013 www.bocaratontribune.comSportsBy Chad BeattieAlthough Lynn Universitys baseball team lost 12 players from last years NCAA Tournament squad, the 28thranked Fighting Knights still return a bevy of talent, coupled with the addition of 20 new faces, to compete for the programs second national championship. Head coach Rudy Garbalosa and his staff of Donovan ODowd, Beau McMillan, Andrew Fabian and Chris Youngberg has reloaded and should force the Sunshine State Conference, South Region and the country to take notice. Returning on offense for the Blue & White are Cory Elasik and Jason Ma tusik. The duo combined for 10 home runs and 58 runs batted in while Elasik finished second in the SSC with 21 stolen bases in 23 attempts. Joey Sharkey is back behind the plate as well and will continue to be the primary backstop to a loaded pitching staff. Also back and seeing their roles increased are outfielders Paul Stortini and Kamm Washington. Stortini played primarily against left-handed pitching in 2012 and hit .350 with a pair of home runs and 13 RBIs. On the flip side, Washingtons defense was invaluable last season and the Fighting Knights hope he fulfills the potential he has flashed at the plate. In addition to the mentioned, Chris Piperno has been turning heads with his bat and could spell Sharkey or Elasik behind the plate or see time as a designated hitter. A logjam could ensue in the outfield as Enrique Perez and Mike Gonzalez duke it out for the final spot. Both players offer speed and average for the top of the order. With so many holes to fill on the field, Garbalosa had his work cut out for him. Infielders Sal Giardina Jr., Alex Freedman and Ryan Lashley should work out nicely though. Giardina becomes the second member of his family to join the Blue & White after following in his fathers footsteps. The elder Giardina donned a LU jersey from 1984-86 and managed the squad in 1993. The younger Giardina should be a middleof-the-order bat while holding down the hot corner. Freedman could be Lynns answer at shortstop for years to come with a penchant for spectacular defensive plays and solid hitting while Lashley looks to close out his career on top after being a Freshman All-American three years ago. Joe Anzeveno, Ryan Carmona, Danny Carroll, Alex Reiner and Donovan Christman round out the bench but all five players have the tools to start for LU. The pitching staff was even more in limbo following the graduation/drafting of all three starters. Joe Perrotta, who pitched in a starting and relief role the previous season, is making a play to join the rotation along with 2012 holdover Kentrail Pierce, who averaged over a K per inning. Austin Bailey shined in his first sea son on the mound, leading the team with seven wins. His development as a starter could ease the burden of some many new arms. Additionally, Eric Pfefer and AJ Falletta could earn spot starts or be big arms out of the pen. Andre Colon returns to lock down the final innings. He led the team in saves in 2012 but has some competition in Andrew Melchor and Josh Evans. Newcomers who will be looking to log innings will be Jed Vandernaald, Troy Mannebach, Peter Graffeo, Kyle Butcher, Travis Connolly, Kevin Lee, TJ Sullivan and Alec Lamrouex. The Fighting Knights open their season on Friday, February 1, when they battle North Georgia and continue through the weekend to face Valdosta State and Palm Beach Atlantic. Lynn boasts an ambitious schedule with two trips to Georgia and non-conference games against three nationally-ranked teams and a contest against Division I Florida Atlantic. Lynn was picked to finish fourth in the SSC Preseason Poll despite a program-best second place finish in 2012. Tampa was an overwhelming favorite to repeat as champions and the two teams will meet in Tampa to end the regular season. League schools traveling to the McCusker Sports Complex will be Rollins, Florida Southern, Eckerd and Nova Southeastern while the Blue & White hit the road for series against Florida Tech, Barry, Saint Leo and the Spartans.2013 Season Preview: Lynn Baseball Boca Raton, FL Florida Atlantic University senior first baseman Mark Nelson and sophomore pitcher Austin Gomber have earned preseason AllSun Belt Conference baseball honors by Perfect Game. The organization also picked the Owls to repeat as Sun Belt Conference regular season champions. Nelson, an Orlando native, led FAU with 45 runs batted in and tied for teamhigh honors with seven home runs in 2012. The co-captain posted a .290 batting average and scored 33 runs last year. He helped last years team to a 32win campaign, marking the programs 14th consecutive winning season. Gomber is one of two returning weekend starting pitchers from last season. The left hander from Winter Garden had 63 strikeouts in 61.1 innings, compiled a 3.82 earned run average and tallied three victories on the mound. The entire Perfect Game preseason write up can be seen here. FAU opens the season on Friday, February 15 at 6:30 p.m. against the University of Cincinnati at the FAU Baseball Stadium.Nelson, Gomber Named Preseason All-Sbc By Perfect GameBy Olivia CoiroBOCA RATON, Fla. Lynn Universitys mens basketball team was attacked by the Nova Southeastern Sharks 66-63 at home in the de Hoernle Center on Saturday evening. Lynn slips to 2-5 in the Sunshine State Conference, 10-7 overall with the loss. Lynn took an immediate 4-0 lead after back-to-back jumpers from Jeremy Lampkin and Shamel Akins. The lead would change five times over the course of the half. The Sharks went into the locker room with a 32-30 advantage at the buzzer. Lampkin led the Knights with nine points and five boards in the first half. He shot 50 percent from the field while adding two blocks. As a team, Lynn shot 50 percent from the field and 60 percent from behind the arc, while grabbing 14 rebounds. Akins opened the second half with a jumper to tie the game at 32-all. However back-to-back shots from downtown gave the Sharks a lead they would own for the rest of the game. The Blue and Whites biggest deficit came at 9:14 when it trailed NSU by 13. LU was able to close the gap to two with 31 seconds to play on a Lampkin layup. A Brian Cahill shot from the charity line, followed by a missed trey from Akins in the final seconds would secure the victory for the Sharks. The Knights shot 48.2 percent from the floor overall and pulled down 31 rebounds. Lampkin led LU with 17 points and 12 rebounds for his second consecutive double-double performance. Akins added 12 points while Jerell Oxendine and Slobodan Miljanic each contributed nine.Knights Mens Basketball Falls 66-63 in Shark Attack
