Yvonne Boice loves a challenge. As the event chair for the Palm Beach State College Foundations STEAM initiative launch, she knew that having Apple Incs co-founder Steve Wozniak as the guest speaker meant there were high expectations for this luncheon, which ended up raising more than $500,000. We were practically sold out from the moment we announced that the Woz was our guest of honor, said Boice, a Boca Raton resident, businesswoman and philanthropist. As the event chair I knew I had to create an atmosphere worthy of one of the most innovative geniuses of our day. I had to pull out all the stops. And that she did. As guests entered the Cohen Pavilion at the Raymond F. Kravis Center for the Performing Arts you could hear audible gasps of surprise and delight the ballroom had been transformed into a visual wonderland paying homage to the themes of Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Maththe STEAM disciplines.

Ron AllenNationally-known comedian Tom Cotter was in town recently to raise 100 birthday celebration. The Stony Point, NY., resident, who was runner-up on the most recent Americas Got Talent, brought his high energy, rapid-fire style of comedy to the annual Laugh with the Library, Chapter 7 event Feb. 1. Im honored to be a part of this benefit, Cotter said in an interview before the show at the Marriott. Its sold out and were going to raise a lot of money for a good cause. He spared no one throughout his xx-minute performance. He cracked on seniors, bad drivers and couples. His humor occasionally took a few dark, but funny turns, like when he talked about relationships with pets dogs and cats. Its been a whirlwind year for Cotwho auditioned for the seventh season of AGT after learning that one of the was leaving the panel and would be replaced by shock Everyone for the previous six years, had been saying, Cotter youve got to go out because of my style of comedy is kind of rapid-fire, said Cotter, who has performed standup for about 25 years. When I saw Pierce critiqued other comics, he was very harsh. He would say things like, I didnt laugh, Youre not original, and You werent funny. I didnt want to be in front of 19 million people having some British dude telling me I wasnt funny. So, I always shied away from it. With comedians Howie Mandel and Stern on the panel and renaissance woman Sharon Osbourne, Cotter said if ever he was going to do it, now was the year. I never thought he would be my number one fan, he said of Stern. And the rest is history, as they say. Cotter became the first comedian to ever reach the finals of NBCs Americas Got Talent. Given his slew of comedy gigs, TV appearances and network meetings after Americas Got Talent, catching up with Cotter these days is no small feat. Ive been trying to cash in while I can, while Im flavor of the month, he said.

From the initial 20 members to the current 50, the chapter has grown in membership, programs and service. But its never forgotten its charter members and founding values. The chapter will observe its 30-year anniversary Feb. 23 with a luncheon at Benvenuto restaurant in Boynton Beach. The celebration, themed Thirty Years of Continuous Leadership and Timeless Service Hats off to Great Leadership, will begin at 12 noon. were going to be recognizing people who have made accomplishments in a retired educator who was a member of the sisterhoods first line in 1984. The Xi Pi Omega chapter, as it is officially called, serves the Boca Raton, Conceived as a social and service organization by undergraduate Ethel Hedgeman Lyle and founded on the campus of Howard University, AKA was the nations first black sorority. When AKA began, blacks were largely confined to a handful of black colleges, and the terrorism of lynching was on its way to claiming thousands of lives. In those days, being on line was a term reserved for dressing alike, learning history, and learning ritual steps and songs along with all the other Ivies who made up your pledge class, longtime members said. Some members have lived to see profound changes both at the national and local level. One of the things that was significant back when the chapter was chartered in 1983, a lot of the women were from this area, Nix said. Whereas now, because of the growth of the area, were getting a lot of members from out of state and a number of young women whove gone to college, gotten an education and have returned home. Todays membership is comprised of a cross section of avocations compared to its inception when it was mostly educators, members added. We used to have educators but today we have members from a broad range of employment medicine, social services and people who own their own businesses, she said. Today, AKA has more than 200,000 members nationally, and the women benefited from an established network of professionals. The organization tors, lawyers and educators, and membership has meant that there is usually another AKA close by, ready to do an extra bit of looking out. The organiza tion counts the late civil rights activists Rosa Parks and Coretta Scott King, ac tresses Phylicia Rashad, Liberian president Ellen Johnson Sirleaf and Jada Pinkett and singer Alicia Keys among its members. Notable members of the Xi Pi Omega chapter include the late H. Ruth Pompey, one of its charter members, retired educators Nadine Hart and Helen Condry.

But one group of revelers spent the afternoon raising money while having fun to support a local organization thats helping aspiring teenage athletes. Prep & Sports, Inc, a nonprofit organization that tutors and mentors student-athletes in southern Palm Beach County, held its 3rd annual Big Game Party at the Hyatt The goal of the party was to raise money so the organization can continue providing academic tutoring and sports training for these students. Several dozen supporters paid $100 for all the food they could eat, an open bar and a chance to hobnob with a few dignitaries. The highlight for many of the guests was meeting and mingling with current and former NFL players. The organization was the brainchild of Tavarius (TJ) Jackson a graduate of Olympic Heights Community High School and a former been giving back to his community since 2005 when he founded the organization along with his cousin, Ja mael Stewart and others. Beach, Jackson was a good athlete. He excelled in football. But he struggled with exams including the the college entrance exams. His childhood dream was to play football at the University of Florida; he was offered a scholarship to play football at Florida with the stipula tion of passing the SAT or ACT. He eventually passed the college entrance exam and was later offered a scholarship to play football at Virginia Tech University, where he played and graduated with a Bachemanagement. In 2003, Jackson signed as a free and returned home after a stint. With first-hand experience, his quest was to ensure that his peers in the community especially those who struggled academically were prepared to pass the college entrance exams. A lot of the kids throughout Palm Beach County are involved in athletics. We want to help them put that amount of energy equally into academics, said Jackson, who recently was named football coach at Atlantic High School.

8 -Edition 133 February 8, through February 14, 2013 www.bocaratontribune.com EDITORIAL By C. Ron AllenLetters to the Editor EDITORIALS/LETTERSThe Boca Raton TribuneFounded January 15, 2010 Publisher C.E.OC.O.O. Editorial Interim Editor Managing Editor Copy Editor Online Edition Editor Social Media Software Engineer Random ThoughtsThe beginning of the year is a time of reflection. We bemoan the failures of the past year and vow to make resolutions to improve or not to repeat our mistakes. However, we should set resolutions we can keep. As Abe Lincoln once said, Your own resolution to succeed is more important than the resolution itself. I am not one who makes New Years resolutions. And last month, I had planned to share with you my hopes and dreams for 2013. But that column was bumped because of the shooting in Connecticut. However, I promised I would share them with you this month, no matter what. For starters, I wish we all will set resolutions we can keep to improve ourselves, our lives and the world around us. spend less than I earn. 2. Learn Something New. I will attempt to learn to fix my own computer, thus making my friend happy. 3. Get Organized. When it comes to my house, less is more. I will not hesitate to invite someone over on a whim, and I can find my stapler when I need it. 4. Help Others. A popular, non-selfish New Years resolution, volunteerism can take many forms. 5. To better cherish family, children and the sanctity of life, and recognize my most important purpose is to love and to be loved. The last five are my wish list, but I wish friend that you will make them your resolutions. can finally realize that our suffering country is much more important than their petty squabbles, private perks, or corporate backers. 7. I wish Congress would make unemployment a priority. 8. I hope that deadly and nonsensical Stand Your Ground laws, like the ones here in Florida, are erased from the law books. 9. I wish the ongoing conflicts around the world will finally come to peaceful conclusions. 10. And since the world didnt end on to fulfill my wish of marrying a millionaire on life support. Now having heard that, I welcome your feedback. C. RonNot Another Bureaucracy Your column in Januarys issue suggested the need for gun control. I dont see how gun control will make any difference when the illegal guns. Gun control is going to create another bureaucracy, like the war on drugs, that will costs billions and go nowhere. I live in a rural part of the county and, yes, there are rifles and shot guns at some yard sales. There is no way to stop people from obtaining guns, by stealing or buying them, from people who have legally obtained them. George Mason Lake Worth No Gun Control Please I strongly disagree with your column calling for gun control because these events never do. There is always talk about gun control (which always goes nowhere), yet the idea that tragedies like [Newtown, Conn.] ould possibly be prevented by creating a more robust mental health system is never even uttered in the media or public discourse. Alex Santos Lets Help the Mentally ill It is depressing in part that it takes a tragedy such as this to discuss mental health services. More people commit suicide every year than do die by homicide. In fact there are more than twice as many suicides than homicides (38,000 vs 18,000). I suppose any discussion is good. However, I fear that when something like this happens the mentally ill will never be truly helped because the discussion is not starting for the right reasons. You want to spark proper conversation it first because you are concerned about the mentally ill themselves, not primarily because of what the mentally ill might do to others. Odessa Gibson Boynton Beach Time to Start Discussing Gun Control It sure as hell will help if we start the damn conversation on gun control. We need to call and write our senators and representa tives in government, write letters to the editor, post it on Facebook, tweet, blog, etc., and talk to family and friends about it. We cant remain quiet. This issue needs a spotlight, and we are the ones to provide it. We are the ones most affected and we have to raise our voices and make our voices heard. As Gandhi said, Be the change you wish to see in the world. Laura Smith

Edition 1339for news 24/7 go to bocaratontribune.com www.bocaratontribune.comFebruary 8, through February 14, 2013 EDITORIALS & LETTERS By Dr. Synesio Lyra, Jr.POSITIVE LIVING world, having received 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. Conversations Which Break Relationships! By Douglas HeizerTHOUGHTS FROM THE PUBLISHER The 5 Ps of Ethical Decision-MakingRick Boxx wrote a great column Making and I thought it would be Not long ago I heard author and speaker Lee Strobel give an excellent message on what he called the Ps for making ethical decisions. I thought his insights would be good to present in Monday Manna. The first P he mentioned is Purpose. When making a challenging decision, it is critical to remember your purpose. If your purpose is to make money, you will often make the wrong decision. However, if your purpose is aligned with biblical principles, your decision will lead to a much different result. As 1 Corinthians 10:31 teaches, So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God. Everything followers of Jesus Christ do should be for the purpose of glorifying God. When that becomes the motiva tion behind ethical decisions, difficult workplace decisions become easier. The second P Strobel cited was Prayer. He stressed the importance of praying about hard decisions, seeking wisdom and guidance. We also should pray, ac cording to Strobel, for the moral conviction and courage to do the right thing. Many times we know the right thing to do, but need the courage to do it. James 1:5 teaches, If any of you lacks wisdom, he should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to him. The next time you face a challenging ethical dilemma, take Strobels advice and pray boldly for Gods wisdom, then trust He will provide it. The third P in Strobels list was Principles. He urged his audience to make decisions by testing them against biblical principles. He said 50 percent of ethical decisions are based on emotion. Emotions like fear, greed, or anger can lead to very poor decisions. Pausing to consider how your proposed decision aligns with what the Bible teaches is more productive. Psalm 119:9 teaches, How can a young man keep his way pure? By living according to your word. When you face ethical dilemmas, do not let emotions rule. Pause, pray and seek help in Gods Word. Strobels fourth P was People. When faced with a tough decision, do not make it alone. Involving wise, trusted people in your ethical decisions has many benefits, including receiving good counsel, forcing you to be transparent, and adding built-in accountability. For years, I led a small group of CEOs. Many times, regardless of the issue, we found someone with insights that were helpful for arriving at a wise decision. Proverbs 15:22 teaches, Plans fail for lack of counsel, but with many advisers they succeed. Being a leader can be lonely at times, but it does not have to be. When faced with a challenging ethical decision, allow other people to be a part of your decision. The final P was Popular Opinion. However, Strobel took this principle in a different direction. He recommended when confronting a difficult decision, consider what the popular opinion might be and then be prepared to do the opposite. God is not concerned think. In Isaiah 55:9, God teaches, As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts. Ethical decisions based on popular opinion can be disastrous. Be courageous and, if necessary, take Gods opposing path instead, Strobel advised. Copyright 2013, Integrity Resource Center, Inc.

In some cases, even those whom they considered to be close friends appear distant, and dont visit or talk as much as it was done before. While they used to respond so readily to invitations for social interactions, they now appear to find reasons always to decline similar offers. Not that any fight took place between those people, nor misunderstandings erupted among them. They out knowing the cause. Through my investigation of some such reports, I quickly notice that what often happens is that the complainer tends to be a very domineering individual. In spite of the hospitality which such person extends to others, when it takes place it appears that they,alone, open their mouth the entire time of the visit. In the case of a couple, it is also quite frequent that when a spouse says something relatively insignificant, the other immediately has to contradict, or deny what is being said. For instance, if a person refers to something being yellow, the other will interrupt simply to say, No, it was green; if one is describing a vacation taken together and alludes to some incident they experienced, the other has to revise and correct a minor, irrelevant detail which no one cares about, and which makes no difference to the report being presented. After experiencing some of the above, or other unpleasant distractions of this nature, some people begin to retreat whenever a new invitation is issued to them for dinner by the same individuals, or any other type of socializing with those people. Sadly, Ive seen such things far too often, which make me understand the vacillation of some in being ready to respond and be with acquaintances which quickly ceases from being interesting or desirable. If you wish to be hospitable to othfriends and acquaintances, seek to inquire more about them rather than talk about yourself. Allow them the opportunity to participate in a conversation if you ever want to see them back; give them the opportunity to speak, make the experience a true exchange, involving dialogues rather than the monologues you use to dominate the moments spent together. As you can see, you dont need to start a fight in order to distance your friends from you; any of the above is a form of disrespect, even if unintentional, which most people prefer to avoid altogether. Its always good to that, there is the right way and the

I own a business, which my attorney tells me has nominal value under Florida divorce law. We have retirement savings, a couple of luxury cars, on lease, and a small boat. has a mortgage of only about $100,000.00. We have three children under eighteen. Before she filed the divorce, my wife and I had agreed to sell the house and split the proceeds. She would keep the retirement accounts; I would get the business. Her lawyer told her that she could live in the house until the youngest child was eighteen years old, and when it was sold, the proceeds would be divided. Without selling the house, I cannot buy a house of my own. She now wants to keep the house, stating that she could not live anywhere else, in such a nice house, with as low a mortgage payment as we have now. She would need alimony, which she says she would not need if she stayed in the house. She works, and says she would be fine with some alimony and child support, if the house were sold later. I would like to settle, but then Id have to rent. What do you think trial? What should I do?

Your decision should be based on complete financial informa tion, and the advice of a financial planner. You could negotiate a modification of her terms, by requiring her to move if she remarries, lives with another person, or after a number of years less than she asks for. Your house may continue to grow in value. In negotiating, be sure to specify who is to pay the mortgage payment, real estate taxes, insurance, maintenance, and repairs. Specify whether the paying person gets any extra credits at the time of sale.

Loudly. more than ever. February is Black History Month, which reminds us to stop and give honor where honor is due, especially to the AfricanAmerican individuals and groups that have shaped who we are as country today. Rather than one individual, we shall take a look at an entire movement that defined a culture and has the potential to bring renewal to many today. The historical African-American church. First allow me to define reality. The church as a whole is more and more being found to be a minority in America. A Biblical worldview is no longer truly welcome in politics, the marketplace, education, or Hollywood. Authors Steve Timmis and Tim Chester of Everyday Church, rightly suggest that we are living in a post-Christendom world. A world that is skeptical of anything absolute, especially a Jewish carpenter who 2000 years ago claimed to be the way, and the truth, and the life. Now what? The church used to be the center of American life. The Scriptures used to set the tone of our culture. The church used to lead from the mainstream of society as get to thrive as we once didfrom the margins. This is not a time for lament or discouragement. This is not a time to obnoxiously fight for the place we once held. This is a time to embrace our reality in the margins, as a minority, and begin to renew the culture with the gospel. So where can we look for a model of how to go about this work? The historical African-American church. Actually, the first place we could look is the early church of the first century. It is important to understand that leading from the margins is not a new concept. It is how the church does some of its best work. Author and pastor Thabiti Anyabwile calls us to look closer than the first century, to the much nearer historical African-American church of America. He offers a few key themes that defined this movement as the same key themes that can bring clarity to what God is doing today through the local church. 1. Learn to suffer with grace and dignity. Thats not easy. But if the evangelical church is going to maintain a healthy dignity and resolve, itll need to endure suffering like a good soldier. 2. Learn to do theology from the underside. Most of AfricanAmerican theology gets worked out in the crucible of suffering and underpriveledge. It would be good to glean from experiences and theologies of persons that already have in hand over three hundred years of thinking about such things. 3. Learn how to fight for your One genius of African-American theology and the Black Church has been its insistence on the full dig nity, humanity, brotherhood, and rights of both the Black community and the White community. The best of Black Church history sees the future of Blacks and Whites inseparably connected. 4. Learn to hope in God. Thats one part of the legacy of the Black Church. When life was at its worst, it was a praying church. threat of death on every hand, African-American Christians put their hope in a God they were sure would tice and deliverance. I thank God for the power of the gospel that makes all of this a reality. I thank God for the AfricanAmerican church. I thank God for the authors mentioned in this article and their thoughts that shaped much its content. May we continue to be transformed by the love of Jesus for the glory of God. Much LoveCasey

The leadership of any City realizes that to create a Community, there must be opportunities for the resicompany, 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 recognized throughout the world as a model in Remarkable Urban Space Creation. This place is in businesses, retail stores, incredible restaurants, art studios, civic venues, parks, cinema and live theaters, all within a 10 minute walk.

The cast is large (17) yet lavishly costumed by Rick Pena, who also plays Buddy, a struggling musician who discovers the twins in a carnival sideshow drags his friend Terry Connor (codirector Matthew Korinko), an Orpheum Circuit vaudeville scout, to see the act. Connor instantly sees the commercial potential in the untrained twins. Buddy and Terry convince nival to achieve their star potential.

Their best friend Jake (Jerel Brown) asks them to stay for reasons of his own, but he agrees to let them go when they say he can come with them. which they are based, are two separate and distinct personalities forced to share the bitious and star-struck. Violet yearns for love, romance and a conventional marriage. This inevitably leads to conflict, as it did expressed in Like Everybody Else and Feelings Youve Got to Hide; reality in As I Am? and I Will Never Leave You. Side Show is also about exploitation. and people are desperate to do anything for a buck. In the case of the Hilton sisters that includes staging a very public wedding ceremony. As in real life, the ending of the Hilton Sisters story is bittersweet. This show thankfully does not follow it all the way to its sad conclusion. Instead it is uplifting in an odd way, celebrating strong souls who triumph over handicaps. The singing in this show is simply beautiful with gorgeous harmonies by the entire ensemble, backed by an unseen but very responsive onstage band. Both Kaela Antolino and Courtney Poston are strong singers. tion, but she throttles back to felt perfectly for her twin duets. Choreographer-director Patrick Fitzwater and his plucky troupe are truly mira cle workers. The theater community lost a lot over the past year, but the future burns bright for Slow Burn. Tickets are $30-$35. Call 866-811-4111 or go to www.slowburntheatre.org. Raisin a Modern Classic at Palm contemporary theater classics, artfully and soulfully realized. A perfect example of this is their production of A Raisin in the Sun by Lorraine Hansberry. Hansberry made history in 1959 as the first African-American and youngest playwright (29) ever of a Broadway play. The director, Lloyd Richard, was the first African-American Broadway director. Sadly Raison was a one-hit wonder for Hansberry, who died tragically young of pancreatic cancer at age 34. Hansberrys career grew posthumously. Her writings were adapted into a stage play and later a book called To be Young, Gifted and Black, which was a suc cess in the 1968-1969 Broadway season. Raisin was adapted into the single-word musical production, which won the Tony Award for Best Play in 1973. Bruce Norris wrote Clybourne Park in 2010 in response to Raisin. It had its Florida debut at Caldwell Theatre and won a Carbonell Award as Best New Play for the final sea son of that company. It went on to win the Pulitzer Prize in 2011 and Tony Award for Best Play in 2012. Guest-directed by Seret Scott, A Raisin in the Sun is a largely autobiographical story of how Hansberrys family broke the color barrier of a Chicago suburb. Hansberry fictionalized her family name to Younger. Walter Lee Younger (Ethan Henry) is a proud, hard-working but sometimes hard-drinking, reckless family man. Ruth (Shirine Babb) is his strong, neathe Younger (Janice Abbott Pratt) is the closest character to the playwright: whipsmart, ambitious and full of righteous Asagai (Marckenson Charles) is Benethes Nigerian-born exchange student friend and George (Jordan Tisdale) is her boyfriend. Travis Younger is the 10-year-old and Joshua Valbrun in alternating performances. The family matriarch is the regal Ruth (Pat Bowie, made up to look much older). Act One is mostly a simmering, ominous setup for the fiery Act Two. Ruths husband has died, leaving a $10,000 insurance policy to the family. Ruth wants to use the money to finance a down payment on a house in Clybourne Park, a previously all-white suburb. The rest of the money will go to help finance Beneathes college tuition and family expenses. Walter has other plans, cooked up with his shady friend Bobo (Micley LaFrance). Everyones plans are put in A, Hyland). Smiling obsequiously, Karl claims to be head of the welcoming committee for the Clybourne Park Improvement Association. The only improvement the committee really wants is protection of the value of their homes against feared loss if a black family moves into the neighborhood. Act Two is a conflagration resulting from a foolish decision, a senseless loss, and dire consequences. Each character has his or her chance to bare his or her soul. The results are spectacular, particularly with piteously grieving, regretful Walter and devastated Beneathe. In the final analysis, it is the quiet, stoic power of grandmother Ruth that gives the play its dramatic charge, wonderfully realized by Pat Bowie. If you want to see a ground-breaking, modern classic, look for farther than A Raisin in the Sun. It runs through March 3 at 201 Clematis St., West Palm Beach.

Unlike the touring version that visited Broward Center a few years ago, this production does not have the magical Mary Poppins flying over the audience. Im guessing the much higher ceiling of Kravis makes rigging the flying much more difficult. Mary still flies, but her flying is confined to the stage. This isnt Peter Pan after all. The fact that Mary can levitate with her umMary Poppins changes people for the better, and in Madeline Trumbles performance that quality shines loud and clear. There is a clear need for change in the Banks household in London at the turn of the 20th century. Father George (Chris K. Hoch) is a grouch and and old before his time. The Banks children Jane (Madison Mullahey alternating with Julianna Rigoglioso) and Miwith Eli Tokash) are out of control, have driven away six previous nannies. Mother Winifred (Kerry Conte) tries in vain to keep the piece. Serving as narrator is Bert the chimney sweep (Con OShea-Creal, an excellent singer and dancer from the Broadway show), who is also a close friend of Mary Poppins, who suddenly appears the latest nanny has fled in frustration. The familiar songs, by Richard M. Sherman and Robert B. Sherman, are augmented by new songs and lyrics by George Stiles and Anthony Crewe. Rest assured your toes will be tapping to such favorites as Chim Chim Cheree, A Spoonful of Sugar and Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious played by a most spirited orchestra in the pit. A hallmark of this show is its excellent dancing chorus, with Matthew Bournes imaginative, clever choreog raphy. You could say this is the ideal family show, for really that is what it is about.

Edition 133B3Section B February 8, through February 14, 2013www.bocaratontribune.com MEDITERRANEAN DELIGHTS AT ESTIA GREEK TAVERNA Food Review Marc Kent Authentic dishes include 8 cold appetizers as Tzatziki (yogurt with cucumber, dill and garlic with Greek olive oil), Taramosalata (a fish roe spread), hummus and Tirokafteri (feta cheese with hot peppers and olive oil), dolmades (grapes leaves stuffed with rice and herbs), and black olives. There are 15 hot appetizers we had a very nice fried calamari quite tender. We then sampled tiny fried smelts for seafood starters. The taste of their mussels and scallops was over powered by the strong tomato, basil, garlic and feta cheese sauce. While we liked the cold dolmades we loved the hot version with ground beef, rice and herbs topped with a fine egg lemon sauce. We tried the giant baked beans nothing here like the usual the tomato and onion sauce added to the beans sweet flavor. We sampled the tasty green salad with its fine dressing but found the red beet salad, though tasty as well, had very little of the beet taste. Listed are 5 (rustic Greek originals) and we had to try the traditional mousakas. This was a huge portion containing layers of eggplant, potatoes, ground beef and homemade bechamel sauce a perfect dish. Lamb chops, scallops and shrimp with lemon potatoes and vegetable make up the Estias sig nature platter. The chops had a lemony flavor as well as the potatoes, the scallops had a deep sea flavor, the shrimps sweet and tender. The meat sampler offers lamb chops, biftekia (ground beef patty), deep flavored Greek sausage chicken souvlaki (marinated chicken breasts). And a lamb/ beef gyro. Each of these individual components can be the focus of full plates. Meat listings also offer rib eye steak, pork chops, and various souvlakis. Fish and seafood offerings include shrimp sauted or grilled, swordfish, salmon or yellow tail snapper or bronzino. Scallops, mussels, and shrimp are available over pasta in chefs signature red wine sauce. We sampled a delicious egg lemon chicken soup a superior choice. The soup of the day was a full bodied lentil soupif its on your menu, try it. Carlene, Steve and this reviewer ordered bougatsa a desert of phyllo dough with custard cream having hints of vanilla and topped with powdered sugar and cinnamon. We then tasted the traditional blaklava, honey soaked phyllo with almonds and walnuts. Both desserts were wonderful and a sweet ending to a fine Greek meal. Other desserts offered include rice pudding and yogurts. From a list of 10 coffees, we had a delicious decaf cappuc cino, hot and sweet.

It was actually very nice for a rock pit. He was so happy because he was going to go to the pond today. he said. What time is it? he asks himself. said Mr. Bunny. Could you help me wash my carrots? Ok, said Tommy, lets go. 1 hour later What time is it now? asked Tommy, Its 1:00, replied Mr. Bunny. Oh, I shouted back as he scurried out the door so he could get ready to go to the pond. Just as he got home Mrs. Chick came up and asked if Tommy could watch over her eggs while she went to get food. Oh, ok, said Tommy. But I have to go to the pond at 2:00. Oh, thank you, Tommy, said Mrs. Chick. God bless you. 30 minutes later Sorry I took so long. I could barely find a seed, said Mrs. Chick, as soon as she arrived home. Its ok, said Tommy. What time is it? he also asked. Oh, its 1:30, said said Tommy Turtle, politely. Bye, said Mrs. Chick. Bye, said Tommy. Oh, no, said Tommy sadly. Im not going to make it to the pond in time. Just then, it started pouring and storming quite badly. Oh, now I see why I wasnt supposed to go to the pond stopping me from going to the pond today. You know best. For You have maintained my right and my cause; You sat on the throne NKJV) I think we learned an important lesson today with Tommy the Turtle. Its that God knows best.

I knew I had to make an impact worthy of our guest, Boice said. Wozniak seemed overwhelmed by the mag nificent display and the reception he received from the over 660 guests. The Apple co-founder, who was the engineer behind the famed Apple I and Apple II computers, easily won the audience over with his self-effacing manner and humor. He conversed for almost an hour with event emcee, Felicia Rodriguez of WPBF Ch. 25, on a wide range of topics, including many questions submitted by PBSC students. While Woz stressed the importance of the STEAM disciplines for our students to remain competitive and prosperous, he also reminded the students of the essentials: finding their passion in life and being a kind well-liked person. Those themes he entwined throughout many of his personal stories, as he told of his early years in high Packard and his now legendary partnership with Steve Jobs. Wozniak was a magnificent speaker, Boice said. His words were heartfelt and his insights into the future were truly inspiring. He made us realize how much we have to look forward to and how our students really need our guidance and support to help them achieve that next level of success.

Miami Gardens, and Rep. Eduardo Gonzalez, R-Hialeah, have sponsored bills (HB-165 and SB-306) that begin the discussion on whether the state would allow taxes to be directed to help stadium upgrades. The legislation casts a wide net, offering a $3 million tax rebate annually to a sports team that is undertaking a $250 million stadium upgrade, as long as the team owner is paying a minimum of $125 million, according to the bills. In Stephen Ross case, he has offered to pay $200 million out of his own pocket. The bills could also grant Miamithe cap on the mainland hotel tax to 7 percent from 6 percent. Ross has said that the purpose of the upgrade is to continue to attract Super Bowls and to seriously compete against the San Francisco 49ers future $1.2 billion stadium and the Houston Texans Reliant Stadium for the National Football Leagues 50th Super Bowl in 2016. An improved stadium would also Life Stadium until at least 2034, he has said.

26 -Edition 133 February 8, through February 14, 2013 www.bocaratontribune.comBusiness News Second American Civil War CARLO BARBIERIBy Carlo Barbieri The Civil War that pitted the North and the South against each other during the early 1860s was, without doubt, a bloody encounter, with brother fighting brother over the barrel of a rifle or amid the cannon fire of a battlefield. The bitter irony of that conflict was fate of slavery was the overriding reason for the bloody fighting. If there is a second American Civil War and this column has previously speculated on that possibility it is likely to be a psychological conflict and not a war with guns and bombs. Still, even psychological warfare can have a traumatic impact on this nation. America hoped that the November 2012 election would give some glimmer of a brighter future and even an eventual end to the terrible economic troubles that have stricken this nation since at least 2007. The re-election of Barack Obama by a couple of percentage points over Mitt Romney leaves many in the US wondering if the next four years will simply be a repeat of the past four. This is where some of the psychocampaign, and in his recent inaugural address, President Obama addressed some of the questions that have plagued various segments of the population. But we wonder if those questions have been answered to the best of his ability and to the liking of the American people. In other words, are their minds secure in what he predicts for the future? Barely two months have passed since Mr. Obama won re-election, and yet he has done little to bring peace to the minds of many, particularly those in the middle class, the ones he promised during his election not to hurt. The protracted discussion and lengthy period of inaction over the socalled fiscal cliff brought nothing but continuing angst to the entire popula tion. The wealthy wondered if they would be hammered with much higher taxes. But even the middle class, it appeared, was going to be stricken with new and heavy taxes on top of the sacrifices they have made during the past few years. The argument over the fiscal cliff ended with a false sense of security when federal legislators and Mr. Obama announced a temporary settlement around the time of the New Year. Still, despite the huzzahs and the back-slapping among official Washington, the middle-class didnt get away unscathed. With the new year came a new tax a higher payroll tax. So the promise that the middle class would not be hurt was breeched. Like citizens, businesses also wonder what 2013 and the Presidents new term will bring. As Mr. Obama inflicts his own brand of psychological warfare on them leaving them in the dark about his plans for the future they will ing until they know how their financial coffers will be affected. In essence, both the people of America and the businesses of the USA are both being held hostage as 2013 continues into its sec ond month. The current administration seems to be heaping insecurity and uncertainty on top of class warfare that began during the past few years. We have spoken about how President Obama has created a nanny state made up of people dependent on government doles to survive. This includes the so-called cradle to grave assistance that substitutes welfare for the American dream. This subservient class likely has or will soon have what the middle class has worked and sacrificed to get. At the same time, the Obama White House has declared its own war on the rich, declaring that they owe more of their share in money to US coffers. In the same breath, success has been declared to be bad and initiative is frowned upon. So where is the middle class to turn? In a fictional essay published in Small Wars Journal magazine, a team of experts bring forth an argument that ongoing economic unrest and political division within the US popula tion could cause a civil war to erupt in the United States in only a few years time. The essay, Full Spectrum Opera tions in the Homeland: A Vision of the Future, is in no way represented as a piece of pure truth, but its writers suggest that a civil war could happen much sooner than Americans may think if certain conditions occurring in the country today persist into the next few years. This also brings Mr. Obama to a crossroads. Will he allow the status quo to continue, endangering the na tions peace of mind? Or will he show leadership and finally work with Republicans for the good of all people, and all classes? The solution is squarely on Mr. Obamas shoulders.

Edition 13329for news 24/7 go to bocaratontribune.com www.bocaratontribune.comFebruary 8, through February 14, 2013SportsThe Boca Raton Tribune SportsStory by: Pedro Heizer The 2013 NASL Combine which is recognized as a leading pathway to playing professional soccer in the region was held this past weekend at Lockhart Stadium, home of the NASLs Fort Lauderdale Strikers. Last season alone, almost 15% of its 2012 Combine ended up on NASL rosters at the opening of the season. In the opening game of the Combine the Red team drew 2-2 with International Tom Jackson struck twice for Red, the first coming off an efficient cross from Kendall Sealy and the second coming after some excellent build up play in the area. For the Blue team goals came from Andres Vargas and Juan Gonza lez. Blue was led in the attack by the cultured midfield play of Laurent Merlin, a former Olympique Marseille and Chivas USA midfield. James Mack, formerly of the Charleston Battery also stood out in the match for the Blue team. The second game featured former Barclays Premier League Best er Pascal Chimbonda. The match flowed nicely in the first half with chances for both teams. The breakthrough for the Green team finally came in minute sixty three when Steven Miller finished an opportunity. Just minutes later, the White team equalized thanks to former FCM Aubervilliers midfielder Ferrety Sousa. I thought the first game was a typical first day of a combine game, but as the day went on, but the second game I thought was much better and those guys really got after it especially in the first half. I think the level was quite good, Fort LauShore. Ricky Hill Head Coach of the NASL Champion Tampa Bay Rowdies said we have nice playing conditions here in sunny Fort Lauderdale and the standard has been very good. On Saturdays session, Green and Red drew 1-1 in the first match. Reds Jesus Toscanini formerly Uruguay opened the scoring finishing on a low driven cross from former Pittsburgh Riverhound Red had an opportunity to double the lead shortly before halftime as Craig Wilson broke away from Green defense but he was denied rey Whisenhunt. In the sec ond half, Green came out strong with former Premier League Best XI and France World Cup veteran Pascal Chimbinda shifting from right back into the middle, solidifying a defense that had been opened up in the first 45. About midway throught the second half, 22 year-old George Tor equalized for Green as the match opened up with chances both ways. The 1-1 final scoreline was a fair reflection of the play. Game two featured five goals in second half action, with Blue drawing White 3-3. Blue struck first with an excellent run and finish by former Charleston Battery midfielder James Mack. The game opened up after halftime when Sean Arters took on three defenders in the box, rounded the keeper and slotted home a clean finish at the near post. With the score 2-0 in favor of Blue, White struck with three consecutive goals in a ten minute period. Goals by Robbie Tice, Mickael Oliveira Barrosa and Uzi Tayou gave White a 3-2 lead. However, Blue equalized when former Chivas USA midfielder Laurent Merlin who was a standout performer again on day two of the combine rounded out the scoring in minute 77, which savaged a draw for the Blue team. Minnesota Stars Head Coach Manny Lagos said the level and professionalism (of the combine) was very high and the field is one of the nicest I have seen in the last few years which creates a great setting for the games. We have had a lot of energy on the field today and it has been very impressive. The 2013 NASL Combine concluded on Sunday afternoon with Blue defeating Green 2-1 and White defeating Red 3-1. Juan Gonzalez opened the scoring for Blue early on in the first match of the day. George Tor who has had a solid week had an opportunity on a breakaway to level the wide. In the second half Murphy Campbell leveled the score before Andres Vargas tapped in a loose ball set up by a tight angled deflected shot by Tamba Samba. In the second match of the day White defeated Red 3-1, with former Fort Lauderdale Striker and maria opening the scoring in minute four for White. Tom Jackson nearly equalized for the Red team a few moments later and Red kept the pressure on with Charles Rodrgiuez equalizing in minute 24. In the second half White scored twice, thanks to Kaoru Forbess low, hard long distance strike and Uzi Tayous set piece header. FC Edmonton Head Coach Colin Miller who in his dual role as interim Canadian National Team Manager led his side to a 0-0 result vs. the fa vored United States on Wednesday remarked on the Combine the attitude was good and some good goals scored and some excellent football this weekend.2013 NASL Combine Recap

The Celtics went from going to Game 7 of the NBA Finals in 2010 to losing to Miami in consecutive post-seasons. The Celtics remade their roster in the wake of Ray Allen spurning a Celtic offering and Courtney Lee and a string of others. On paper, the Celtics didnt look too bad, with Jeff Green returning, they seemingly were ready for another run. but the age and chemistry was not right. Boston has struggled all season, and last week received the news during the middle of the game against Miami Rondo had torn his ACL and will miss the rest of the season. This is devastating news for Boston because Rondo is the one who runs that them going 2-0 so far without him, most know the Celtics stand a slim chance against any contender without him. Talk of blowing up the team started to be rumored, and Ainge is listening to offers without seeking them Today, the Celtics received news that their first round pick Jared Sullinger will require back surgery and miss the rest of the season. The Celtics may be in disarray. They cant withstand anpoint guard on their roster. The Celtics may blow things up, or they could make a minor acquisition and position themselves in the playoffs. We arent sure. Heres what we do know that favors ics without Rondo, the HEAT are huge favorites over Boston in a playoff series was the one who gave Miami the most headaches. This eliminates a severe threat the HEAT would need to worry about. Secondly, if the Celtics do implode and miss the playoffs, their likely replacement would be the Philadelphia 76ers who are only 3 games back. The Sixers are waiting on Andrew Bynum to return, if he does, to be a threat to anyone. Heres how this helps Miami: 1. The Sixers have been owned by The Sixers want to play the style of basketball that favors Miami, and this is good. Bynum could be a problem, but if Miami stays #1 and Philly is #8, should be an easy round for the HEAT. 2. If the Sixers make the playoffs, the HEAT receive their first round pick (from 2012 draft night trade). If Philly is an #8, the pick would be around number 15 or 16. This could result in someone like 6 Mason Plumlee Kentucky, maybe even Trey Burke from Minnesota. For all that its worth; Miami could really use a good draft pick, and that could be huge for them moving forward into luxury tax time. Keep an eye on the race between Boston and Philly because it impacts the HEAT in so many ways.Tragedy in Boston Could Mean Joy in Miami
