By Darnesha McCrayDELRAY BEACH Its known as The Best Stinkin Party in Town. And while there was an abundance of music, food and beer, what stood out was the aroma of garlic that filled the air. Everything was so good I had to come back, said Ryan Kogan, 13, who attended with friends (his second family) the first day but returned with his parents on the final day. We enjoy it here. Its a great place for any family to have an outing. At least 26,000 people or garlic heads as the fans are called, attended the 14th annual Garlic Fest, Feb. 8 to 10, on the grounds of the historic Old School Square, according to police and organizers. The gourmet food and entertainment event aims to bring the community together to have a good time and give back to those in need. The festival started as a way for nonprofits to raise money for education and the arts for young people. So far Delray Beach Arts Inc., has raised more than $400,000. There was something for everyone to do and enjoy: tasty unique garlic dishes, fun rides, By Samantha Mellman Three weeks out of the year we see our local Girl Scouts friendly faces selling those delectable cookies we have all come to know and cannot resist. The biggest question we may face when we meet them is, how many boxes will we buy? But the bigger question should be what are you donating to? Nina Heckerthorne is a 1st year leader of Girl Scout Troop 20912 and she explained, Girl scouting is really about teaching them life skills, values, and how to be strong powerful women. Saige Levine, a 2nd year Girl Scout, is 9 years old and most young girls do not have a sense of what world issues are, but Levine and fellow troop members shared how they want to help society and the environment. Since joining scouts she said, I know more about the world then I did before, and I have learned that there are people who dont have food YOUR CLOSEST NEIGHBOR.Nearly 400,000 readers!The Boca Raton Tribunefor news 24/7 go to bocaratontribune.com Send us a picture of you reading The Boca Raton Tribune to pictures@bocaratontribune.comCommunitySee page 5 Police: Shooting Victim Wanted Suicide by CopMunicipalSee page 19 Oscar-Nominated e Gatekeepers a Very Important FilmLife & ArtsSee page B1 Boca Raton City Council Approves Plans For Complete Transformation Of Boca Raton Bridge HotelBusinessSee page 26 Girl Scouts: Selling Cookies while Teaching Life LessonsMark Ramirez reading The Boca Raton TribuneContinued on page 8 Garlic Fest Draws ThousandsContinued on page 3 Boca Squatter Loki Boys Days in Mansion is Over CommunitySee page 7 Boca Real Estate Agent Took Lewd Photos of Underage Girls, Police Say

New this year was a kissing booth. One of the highlights was the Garlic Chef cooking competition where top chefs from local restaurants vie for bragging rights. Food critiques also highlight the numerous health and culinary possibilities that garlic offers. Organizers hope Garlic Fest will eventually be the premier food and entertainment event in South Florida. My inspiration came from the revitalization of Delray, said Nancy StewartFranczak, the Queen of Garlic who spearheaded the event. The citys residents wanted festivals to go out to, to have a good time. So after a friend attended a Garlic Festival in New York, they decided to duplicate it in Delray Beach. Festivalgoers were mesmerized by Bob Ross inventory of clocks that he made from actual album covers and the vinyl records. Each clock was made from seven combined records. Today has been a rocking show, Ross, owner of The Tunes company, said of the festival. Among the sea of exhibitors was martial arts studios in Delray Beach and Boca Raton. Wilson, 54, said his mother was his inspiration and his love of people motivated him to help people, ages 4 to 64. The festival had its share of newcomers as well. Lucy Tipple, from Quebec, Canada, said she enjoyed the festival, especially since it did not rain and was not so hot. She had one qualm though: I think there should be more samples freebees, the first-time visitor said. Franczak said of the amount of garlic. Theres thousands of pounds of garlic that go into Gourmet Alley, the gantlet of food vendors, she said. This year, several groups provide more than 500 volunteers and in exchange benefit from the festival: Atlantic High Band Boosters, Atlantic High Eagle-ettes, Banyan Creek Elementary, Boynton Beach High, Boy Scout Troop 301, the Brookdale (College) Foundation, C.R.O.S. Ministries and Caring Kitchens/Community Food Pantry, Delray Beach Police Explorer Post 319, KOP, formerly Knights of Pythagoras Mentoring Network, Old School Square, S.D. Spady Elementary Montessori Magnet, Sister Cities, and Sunrise Kiwanis. The show goes on rain or shine; a 100-foot tent will stand at the main stage at Old School Square.Community NewsThe Boca Raton Tribune Community News 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 $ Garlic Fest Draws Thousands Continued from page 1

The Palm Beach County Sheriffs Office served an ejection notice last week after Bank of America had sued Barbosa. Police went to the five-bedroom waterside property Thursday afternoon with a representative from Bank of America to warn occupants if [they] remained they would be trespassing. But no one was home. No one was inside, and the house has been turned over to a Bank of America representative who is now securing the property, said Sandra Boonenberg, a spokeswoman for the Boca Raton Police Department. The 23-year-old who calls himself Loki Boy, has cited Floridas adverse possession law in defending his right to be there. Under the law, a party may acquire title from another party by openly occupying his land and paying real property tax for at least seven years. In a statement issued after the home was secured, a spokeswoman for Bank of America said it appreciated the assistance of local authorities and the patience of neighbors as we worked to have the trespassers removed. We take trespassing seriously, and in the interest of the community, we will take appropriate legal action to protect this and all properties we service, the statement said. After Barbosa gained national attention for his brazen attempt to take over a mansion, Bank of America filed an injunction on unidentified occupants. Bank of America was listed as the owner of the home as of property. After Barbosa filed for adverse possession, the Palm Beach County Property Appraisers Office was notified that Barbosa would be moving in, Residents said they are relieved their new neighbors are gone. Barbosa could not be reached for comment.Boca Squatter Loki Boys Days in Mansion is Over

Boca Raton police charged Gary International Realty, with lewd and lascivious behavior on a victim 12 to 16, lewd and lascivious behavior by someone over age 18, promoting sexual performance by a child, child cruelty, and four counts of possessing child pornography. Goldberg, who lives on Plainview Circle in West Boca, was released after posting a $91,000 bond. This is not his first arrest on sexrelated charges. Goldberg, who turned 49 on Feb. 9, was arrested in 2008 for solicitation of prostitution, but the Palm Beach County State Attorneys office ultimately declined to prosecute. Goldberg is married with children. He and his wife Paula were featured a 2006 Money Magazine article. They also are listed in the 2010-2011 annual report of donors to Pine Crest School. complaint to police by the 17-yearold girls mother who allegedly found an x-rated photo of her daughter on her daughters phone. The photo had been sent to Goldberg. Detectives interviewed the girls and learned that Goldberg entered a relationship with them. Cell phone records obtained by police also show Goldberg sending inappropriate text messages to the girl asking for sexy photos and saying Lets play! :) ... He also allegedly used an iPad to take pictures of the girls making out with each other and flashing breasts, according to the report. Goldberg then allegedly performed a sex act on the 15-year-old girl in the bathroom at the BP station on the corner of Glades and Butts roads while the other girl waited in the car outside, according to the arrest report. Goldberg allegedly told one of the girls that he is married and will use the sexy photos for his personal self-induced pleasure, according to the arrest report. When detectives showed up to Goldbergs office with a search warrant he admitted to knowing the teens but denied taking lewd photos of them before asking for an attorney. Detectives proceeded to search Goldbergs computer, iPad, Blackberry and thumb drives finding 12 photos of the teens, several of which were considered lewd. Detectives say they used data embedded in the photographs to prove that the photos originated on his iPad. Video cameras at Goldbergs office, 2255 Glades Road, and the gas station showed him in those locations with the girls, according to the arrest report.Boca Real Estate Agent Took Lewd Photos of Underage Girls, Police Say

Editorial Interim Editor Managing Editor Copy Editor Online Edition Editor Social Media Software Engineer Random ThoughtsAmazing. Incredible. Miraculous. The Annual Garlic Fest does it again, which makes it 14 years in a row. Once again I was impressed by the leadership and caliber of the annual family event in Delray Beach this past weekend. The Garlic Queen herself, Nancy Stewart-Franczak, has lived up to her moniker as a top-notch party planner. No matter the size of the event, leave it to Nancy and she will make something out of it. Over the weekend, the event brought in enough money much of which will be donated to local charitable youth groups that support the Arts to make a considerable difference in the lives of area youth and their families. It was so refreshing to see the army of volunteers, representing the various non-profit organizations and civic groups working the gates, pouring beer and filling other roles. Our area is proud and pleased to host such a great event. As we like to point out, StewartFranczak and her hard working team could have selected anywhere in South Florida for their activities, and they choose Delray Beach. Speaking of parties, or rather, festivals, whatever became of so many of the ole time festivals we had in the area? These days, every weekend in some community, theres something special going on. From an art or music festival in Mizner A1A to the huge Fall Festival at Bidners on U.S. 441, there is something to do with the family. Old-time county fairs and festivals were started as a way for folks to connect with one another when horsepower to get anywhere was just that, horse powered. In years not long ago, organized celebrations were part of the social glue that held communities together. Remember the Roots Festival? The popular festival that was a staple in the community for more than 35 years and which attracted crowds from as far as the Bahamas and Georgia. How about Celebrate the Soul of Delray Beach, the shared her gifted singing voice. And what ever happened to the MultiCultural Festival, which celebrated the rich heritage of Delray Beach? Before it was silenced in 2010, the festival focused on community diversity and brought awareness to the many cultures of our neighbors. Festivities included music, food, childrens activities and family entertainment. The public brought lawn chairs and enjoyed a relaxing, fun-filled day at this outdoor event. And did I mention that the chiefs of police and fire departments were responsible for working the grill that day? Today, many of those legacies endure, but their significance has changed. Memories of Celebrate the Soul of Delray Beach is the only thing that remain. The Roots has been watered down to a daylong event along West Atlantic Avenue. And former board members still make promises to revive the Multi-Cultural Festival. Festivals, fairs and community celebrations today are about spending time with the neighbors, friends and family. Theres still good food and entertainment, but instead of catching up on the news from town smart phones and Facebook take care of that festivals are about spending actual time together. Its little kids sitting on a parents lap, pointing to the fire truck in the parade or sharing a batch of deepfried Oreos. Its busy, working moms, dads and siblings, taking a break from the daily grind and checking out the things that make where they live be it apples, grapes or sauerkraut unique. Every weekend, in this city, theres something special going on. Again, congratulations and thanks to everyone who worked hard to make this years Garlic Festival the Best Stinking Party in town. and that I can help them by asking my neighbors to donate food for them. Levines grandmother Randi Swatt volunteers for the troop and has been involved many years with Boy and Girl Scouts. Swatt is glad that her granddaughter will benefit from the life lessons Girl Scouts can teach. It gives the girls several opportunities, one it focuses on the world, the earth, how to be a good citizen, and compassion toward others, said Swatt, For girls who are interested like Saige and want to make the world a better place, it is hard as a working person to give her those opportunities, but the Girl Scouts give her that opportunity. Troop 20912 has 15 members 5 daisies and 9 brownies, in other words kindergarten to third graders. On every box of cookies they sell are the words courage, confidence, and character virtues that all women want to achieve. What I try to strive for my girls every day is that anybody can become a leader, be strong, and grow from your experiences, said Heckerthorne, I was a Girl Scout as a child and I remember how fulfilling it was to be with a group of girls who felt like sisters. Madison Hernandez, 10 years old, and a 5th year scout has enjoyed the many field trips and friends she has made along the way. The fairy tale camp out was my favorite, we each got to take a fairy home, said Hernandez The funds from selling Girl Scout cookies goes to the camping and field trips that are essential parts for the girls to build friendships and learn how to help others with community service and charity. of Girl Scouts set her mind to it, she strived to make it long lasting, said Heckerthorne. Whenever the scouts do good deeds in the community, whether it is cleaning up a beach or visiting the elderly they earn badges. The badges become incentives for the girls to go beyond what is asked for while helping others. February 8th marks National Girl Scout Cookie Day, so this year when your celebrating with a box of Thin Mints or Samoas, remember your not only satisfying your stomach but your helping young girls around the country become successful and enlightened women.

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. Love is Here to Stay! By Douglas HeizerTHOUGHTS FROM THE PUBLISHER Learning From the Mistakes of OthersRobert Tamasy wrote a great column this week about learning from mistakes of others. I thought this was a fantastic read and wanted to share with you all. Enjoy Why do you want to be mentored? That was the question I asked the young man sitting across the table from me at a local restaurant. A mutual friend had suggested to Todd that he meet with me since he had expressed an interest in having someone mentor him in both his professional and personal life. His answer surprised me: I want to learn from your mistakes. I smiled, thinking here was a man in his late 20s that already had the wisdom to recognize that you do not have to learn exclusively from your own errors and poor decisions. You can learn from people that have already traveled along the path you are following and you can benefit from what they have learned through trial and error. As it turned out, he and I did not begin a one-to-one mentoring relationship because he already was meeting with several other men in various mentor-like capacities. With many younger men lacking even a single man to meet with, I concluded Todd already had enough help. But his comment caused me to reflect on the many times I have done the same thing learned from the mistakes others have shared with me, along with their successes. I would not have the passion I have today for helping others learn how to effectively integrate their faith in the workplace if it had not been for others that showed me it could be done. And they honestly told me about times when they had failed, when they had yielded to the temptation to cut corners to achieve goals, even though they knew it would be a breach of their personal integrity. It was through failures like these, however, that they learned the importance of setting boundaries, of affirming their commitments to excellence and honesty before they came to a moment of decision. Difficult decisions become easier, they taught me, when they are made long in advance of the crisis. Men like these also taught me about their trials, failures and successes in areas such as marriage, parenting, handling finances, dealing with anger and other troublesome emotions, and sexual temptation. I, too, have been privileged to learn from the mistakes of others. The Bible offers many character studies of men that strived to follow and served God, yet sometimes stumbled along the way. I have found these stories very encouraging, not only by learning specifics of their failures, but also realizing God does not demand perfection, only a sincere desire to follow Him, along with a willingness to repent in times of failure. The 10th chapter of 1 Corinthians offers great insight with only two verses: Recognize other peoples failures and take them to heart. There is a saying that if we fail to learn from history, we are doomed to repeat it. Colleagues and friends can only be bad influences when we allow ourselves to repeat their wrong actions. All these things happened to them as examples, and they were written for our admonition (1 Corinthians 10:11). Do not overestimate your own strength. One of the benefits of learning from the mistakes of others is realizing we could make the same errors. If we are wise, we will take preventative steps to avoid a repeat of those failures. As another saying tells us, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. So, if you think you are standing firm, be careful that you do not fall! (1 Corinthians 10:12).Every February has been designated as Brotherhood Month, within which St. Valentines is celebrated on the 14th day. Apart from the romantic dimension associated with Valentines day, we are helped to focus on that unique virtue which must characterise every child of God. In fact, our concrete love for others validates our professed love for God. In being love and showing love so profusely, God offers us a pattern for exercising our own love in its multidimensional aspects: to Him, to self, and to others. I wish to focus on the latter, primarily. How is your love life? Not just to your family, but to your neighbors, to the people you rub shoulders with, and additional others with whom you must interact? Love does not demand uniformity; it can also thrive where there is diversity. A disagreement or a strong viewpoint does not mean lack of love. Once I read of an elderly lady who was asked the reason why she was so well loved and liked, and what her secret was of keeping so many friends? In her reply she stated: Well, theres just one daily rule I follow: I am always mighty careful to stop and taste my words before I let them pass my teeth. Not to be forgotten, the gestures of love are just as important as the verbal expressions of it. Our words about love must be demonstrated in concrete acts which illustrate and validate real love. True love is perennial, flowing from one heart into the life of another. It does not depend on a switch that may be turned on or off, based on circumstances or personal mood. In addition, love is not fulfilled from a script; it must spring naturally from a warm human heart ready to respond to another human object it desires to encourage and impact! So, be daring in your demonstration of love. Learn and relearn the language and the gestures of love, and use them in a world so devoid of it, in spite of excessive mention of it. Dont allow anyone to change the original meaning given it by God. Let your love be free from admission or rental fees, or any instalment plan. Keep it in your life as a non-negotiable, and as a prominent part of your daily conduct before the watching world!

12 -Edition 134 February 15, through February 21, 2013 www.bocaratontribune.com Divorce Florida StyleBy Mike Gora ColumnistsThe Boca Raton Tribune PARENTAL ALIENATIONMichael 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 In the eight months, since I filed my divorce case against my wife my relationship with my children has gone from great to non-existent. Before I left my two daughters, both teenagers, and I spent time together on a daily basis. We did homework together. Both of my daughters are excellent tennis players and play the USTA circuits and high school tennis. I attended their matches and encouraged them. Since the breakup, they do not speak to me. They refuse to participate in court ordered visitation. The few times they have gotten in my car to go out for dinner they have not spoken to me during the whole evening except to order food. My wife takes the position that she cant do anything about it, and the girls dont have to go with me if they dont want to. Their mother keeps trying to get me to come back to her, but life with my wife was intolerable, for me, and I believe for her as well. She says if I come back, the girls will forgive me. It took me years to get up the courage to file the papers, and I am not going back. My lawyer seems to be at a loss. What is going on? What should I do? A From your description of the deterioration of the relationship between you and your daughters it appears that, you and your children are the victims of Parental Alienation Syndrome. You can find out more about PAS on the internet, but here are the basics: Therapist Richard A. Gardner has written a book on the subject in which he defines PAS as a disorder that arises primarily in the context of child-custody disputes. Its primary manifestation is the childs campaign of denigration against a parent, a campaign that has no justification. It results from the combination of a programming (brainwashing) parents indoctrinations and the childs own contributions to the vilification of the target parent. Gardners internet article and book go on to describe three stages of parental alienation: mild, moderate and severe, and three types of alienators: naive, active, and obsessed. For some time, there has been a battle between technocratic psychologists, who deny that this is a true psychological syndrome, and others who refer to the condition as a syndrome. The important thing for you to know as a Florida victim of PAS is that Florida courts have frequently recognized Parental Alienation Syndrome when facts are presented, as well as expert testimony, which prove its existence. In such circumstances, the alienated parent is given relief in the form of a change of custody to that parent, or increased access, coupled with mandatory psychological evaluation and treatment of the alienator and the victimized children. Your lawyer should locate and hire the best experts available, and have the mother and children evaluated. He should consider filing motions for the appointment of a Guardian Ad Litem for the children and a Parent Coordinator, to help get the visitation back in line with the court order. bocaratontribune.comHow To Confront A CrisisFAITHBy Rick Warren There is a humorous story about a woman that won a huge fortune in a state-run lottery. Upon receiving the news, she called home to her live-in boyfriend and told him, I have just won the lottery! Start packing! Her boyfriend replied, Thats fantastic! Should I pack for warm or cold weather? She answered without emotion, I dont care just as long as you are out of the house by the time I get home! That man had a crisis! And that is the way many crises are they arrive totally unexpected, finding us completely unprepared for dealing with them. Like it or not, unexpected crises are a part of life. And at this exact moment you are in one of three phases: Either you just got out of a crisis; you are in a crisis right now; or you are headed into a crisis. There is a fascinating story of a shipwreck in the New Testament of the Bible (Acts 27), from which we can glean three timeless insights for crisis management that you can apply directly to your business: DETERMINE THE REASON. Ask yourself, What is really the reason behind this crisis? The cause is often deeper than what appears on the surface. In the case of the shipwreck recounted by the apostle Paul in the book of Acts, three reasons are cited: (1) They listened to bad advice; (2) they followed popular opinion, and (3) they relied on circumstances rather than what they knew was the right thing to do. If you are having difficulty sorting out the reason for a crisis try praying about it. King David of Israel wrote, I tried to think this problem through but it was too difficult for me until I went into Your temple (Psalm 18:16). DETERMINE THE RESULT. Second, ask yourself, What can I learn from this? Every crisis is an opportunity to enlarge my perspective, sharpen my skills, and develop my character. DETERMINE YOUR RESPONSE. And third, ask yourself: What is the best way to respond to this? Regardless of what else you do, your response should include three elements: rarely solve a problem by ignoring it. It probably will not be easy, but God will be with you if you ask Him for strength. you brought this crisis on yourself, admit it and ask forgiveness. Do not make excuses, and do not shift blame to others. Accepting responsibility is a mark of genuine leadership and emotional maturity. in the Bible there are more 7,000 promises from God to help you? They are like blank checks waiting to be filled in. What are you waiting on? If you do not know the Bible very well, ask a friend who does to help in finding a promise that applies to your situation. God makes one such promise in Philippians 4:6-7, where He tells us, Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ 2012, Purpose Driven Life. All rights reserved. Adapted from a column by Dr. Rick Warren, author of numerous books, including the highly acclaimed, The Purpose-Drive Life, which has been translated into many languages worldwide. It affirms the importance of a carefully considered, clearly expressed purpose to guide everyday life. It has been named one of the 100 Christian books that changed the 20th Century.

The Gatekeepers tells the tale previously untold of the Shin Bet, Israels ultra-secret internal security service. Filmmaker Dror Moreh convinced six former heads of Shin Bet to tell their story. The conclusion all six men come to is bound to make The Gatekeepers controversial. The fact that Shin Bet is the first line of dense against terrorism in Israel and throughout the Middle East makes that conclusion even more significant. Dror Moreh by telephone. These six men fought all their lives for Israel. This film is in no way pro-Palestine. That is a short-sighted opinion. Go see the film and decide for yourself. Moreh interviewed every head of Shin Bet from 1980 up to 2010. The video interviews are interwoven with newsreel footage of war, terrorist strikes, recreated events and civilian interviews. Computergenerated charts and graphics are employed the make the problems easier to comprehend. The conflict Arab members of former Palestine date back to biblical times, but the conflict sharpened with the formation of the State of Israel from formerly British-occupied Palestine in 1948. The conflict ratcheted up after the Six-Day-War of 1967, in which Israel defeated Palestinian attackers and seized land to create a buffer zone called the Gaza Strip between Egypt and Israel. Morehs documentary covers the violence and carnage that has been carried out in the name of religion and national sovereignty. Israel withdrew from the Gaza in 2005 and the radical Muslim Hamas took over in 2007. The most intense area of conflict is the disputed West Bank, which has been walled off from the rest of At times it seems to Shin Bet faced hopeless, thankless dilemmas, yet it is the unanimous conclusion of the six Shin Bet leaders that dialogue must continue between Arab and Israeli forces. One of the most telling reveals of the film is that there or bit as radical and destructive as radical Muslims. One mans terrorist is another mans freedom fighter, notes one of the leaders. In the war against terror forget about morality. Moreh, 51 explains further. The conflict really began when homeland 20, 30, 40 years before the creation of the State of Israel, said Moreh. The intention of this film is in the best interests of Israel, sincerely promoting dialogue that means what you say and say what you mean. The unanimous conclusion of the six leaders is that the Israeli occupation is not only immoral, but ineffective. Four Stars.Oscar-Nominated The Gatekeepers a Very Important Film

February 15, through February 21, 2013 www.bocaratontribune.com B2 Edition 134 Section B Entertainment Skip SheffieldWhat Went on Before Dorothy Dropped In?How did the Wicked Witch of the West become so wicked? Why are the ruby slippers so important to her? And what about all those flying monkeys? All these questions and more are answered in Wicked, continuing through Feb. 17 at Broward Center for the Arts. This is the sixth visit of Wicked to South Florida, and the fourth time to Broward Center. Created by Stephen Schwartz and Winnie Holzman from the 1995 novel by Gregory Maguire, Wicked is the back story of characters from the beloved 1939 film version The Wizard of Oz, Beginning with the death of a witch by Dorothys flying house. It is an evergreen fable, literally and figuratively. Elphaba (Christine Dwyer) is born bright green in the Land of Oz. The shock is so great her mother dies and her sister Nessarose (Zarah Mahler) becomes crippled. As the noted philosopher Kermit the Frog has mused, Its not easy being green. Despite the prejudices against her, Elphaba (the name is inspired by original Oz creator L. Frank Baum initials) makes it to Shiz University, Waal) is assigned as her roommate. Maybe it is not chance but fate that brings these too opposites together. Ga-linda as she calls herself is darn near perfect: blond, beautiful, popular and beloved by everyone. Ah, but Elphaba is beautiful too if you really understand her, and really smart too. Fiyero (Billy Harrigan Tighe), a handsome palace guard, gets it. Boq the Munchkin (Michael Wartella) on the other hand is more impressed by the superficial beauty of Glinda. Wicked is all about appreciating the beauty and value of people who are for whatever reason are different. It is also about repression. The girls Russell), is a talking goat. Talking animals threaten the absolute power of the so-called Wonderful Wizard of Oz (Paul Kreppel) and his chief enforcer, Madame Morrible (Gina Ferrall). The conflict is played out by clever songs, starting with the selfexplanatory No One Mourns the Wicked. While it is important to like Elphaba and Glinda, it is Elphaba who has the greater dramatic weight and some of the best songs. The role made Idina Menzel a star in the 2003 Broadway production. Like Menzel, Christine Dwyer has a rich, powerful voice with a strong lower register, showcased in No Good Deed. Kristen Chenoweth was already a star when she played the first Glinda, but she set the mark high for all who followed her. Lovely, sweet-voiced My hunch is that we will be seeing Elphaba and Glinda again in some future visit, but if you want to experience Wicked here and now, you should hasten to Broward Center by Feb. 17. Tickets are $34.50 and up. Call 954-462-0222 or go to www. browardcenter.org.

Edition 134B3Section B February 15, through February 21, 2013www.bocaratontribune.com Delicious Offerings At Santos Modern American Buffet And Sushi Food Review Marc Kent Forget the image of yesterdays typical buffets for the opportunity of sampling consistently prepared Chinese, Mexican and American cultures. With Mary and Marty, Audrey and Len, we began our adventure by tasting all 3 hot soups a full bodied lobster bisque with tender chunks of lobster meat, a rich tasting chicken vegetable and an above average miso with deep flavor. Then a delicious trio of ceviche included Mexican shellfish, Peruvian and mango/shrimp versions. All crisp, cold and quite different in flavors. Moving on to a dazzling array of sushi, we tried the standard California roll, the spicy tuna roll plus a rainbow roll with salmon, avocado and tuna; a Manhattan roll with salmon, cream cheese and avocado; and unusual vegetarian roll consisting of red pepper, tofu, cream cheese, mango and seaweed saladthis with a little bite. All were fine tasting as were the dragon roll with shrimp and the dynamite roll. There is a section presenting raw seafood on a bed of ice, we sampled very tasty oysters, clams and mussels. The shrimp and crab legs are also available and were delicious. We enjoyed a slightly spicy mini crab cake very nice, indeed! The fine gyoza fried pork dumplings were followed by spare ribs, done loose and juicy rather than crisp and and somewhat dryunusualy good. A must try! The lo mein noodles were actually Italian linguini that had great taste with their semolina base. This selection is a quiet cut above average. The pineapple chicken was fine; the grand Marnier shrimp with its crunch had the tasty sauce it needed. A word about Chef/Owner full bodied yet light and fluffy with vegetable bits a must try of this really fine taste he developed. Turning to vegetables, the grilled mix veggies were nicely done tender and tasty. The roasted red beets were a real treat, the mashed potatoes were whipped, nicely seasoned and fantastic, the corn on the cob was bland (not the season for local corn). The Thai cucumber had a nice, simple taste while the seaweed salad was strong with a light spicy sensation. The black pepper mushrooms were light to the taste. The standard steamed edamame were plentiful and tasty. The Caesar salad had the romaine shards and croutons topped with a so-so homemade Caesar dressing. The Mediterranean salad had excellent taste and texture. We were delighted with the tempura shrimp and the tempura vegetables. They were superior with their very light panko coating go for them! Santos features American style meat bar. We found their rib eye steak is a better choice than the New York strip while their spicy sausage had a nice bite. The desserts are unlike any of standard buffets offerings! The variety includes a crme Brule, a coconut panna cotta, a mango mousse cake, custard with pearls and tiramisu plus warm Thai doughnuts with a drizzled icing all excellent to the taste! Wines, beers and soft drinks are available at Santos open for lunch Monday through Friday from 11AM to 3PM, for dinner Sunday through Thursday from 5PM to 10PM, Friday and Saturday to 11PM. There is a brunch from 11AM to 4PM on Saturday and Sunday. This 200 seat restaurant is located at 4690 N. State road 7 in Coconut Creek in a corner of the Village Shop Plaza at the NE corner of Wiles Road and 441 (www. santosbuffet.com). 914-971-6882.

Nicholas Squire, 22, of no fixed address, was charged with aggravated assault on a police officer. He was in the Delray Medical Center. His condition was unknown at press time. Squire told detectives that he was hoping the officer would shoot him in the head and wanted a suicide by cop situation, according to the arrest report. The Feb. 8 incident began around 9 a.m. when an employee of an air conditioning company, Mark Young, went on the roof of Building 3, 3701 FAU Boulevard in the Research Park area to do some work. Squire, who was wearing black shorts and a black shirt, asked Young for a cigarette, police said. Young gave two cigarettes to Squire, who walked away but remained on the roof. Young came off the roof about 45 minutes later, locked the door to an access room and told the property manager about the man. The manager then called police. FAU Police Chief Charles Lowe said his officers Bill Hernandez and Gary Grande went to the roof to remove Squire. They found him leaning against a wall and said he began pacing as they approached. The officers also said Squire was looking over the side of the building as if he thought about jumping. As officers continued to approach, Hernandez pulled out his Taser and Grander drew his handgun, according to the arrest report. When they were about 10-to-15 feet away from Squire, they said he reached into his right pocket, pulled out a six-inch Gerber knife and ran at them. Both fired. The Taser and two bullets struck Squire, who then fell to the ground. Both officers have been put on paid administrative leave. Squire was rushed to Delray Medical Center. His condition was not known at press time. Lowe said no officers were hurt and no civilians were directly involved. He added that this was an isolated incident contained to the roof. While there was no lockdown, people who work in the building where the shooting occurred were not being allowed in for a period of time during the investigation.

The pictures were of her daughter and another teenage girl in various stages of nudity. The photos were also in text messages to someone named Gary G. and a phone number. That number came back to the cell phone of 48 year old Gary Goldberg of Boca Raton. The 17 year old told investigators that Goldberg would pick up her and her friend and bring them to his real estate office at 2255 Glades Road.

Edition 13429for news 24/7 go to bocaratontribune.com www.bocaratontribune.comFebruary 15, through February 21, 2013SportsThe Boca Raton Tribune SportsBy: Pedro Heizer Talk about a rivalry renewed The Fort Lauderdale Strikers will open their NASL Fall Championship season versus a familiar foe, the New York Cosmos. This will be the first matchup between the heated rivals in over three decades, and it comes nearly 13 months after the Cosmos announced they would play in the NASL once again. The two teams last squared off in the 1983 NASL regular season. Starting the fall season off with the renewal of the original NASL rivalry between the Cosmos and Strikers shows our league is looking toward a bright future, said Strikers head coach Daryl Shore. The Strikers are excited to be the first opponent for the Cosmos and expect an electric atmosphere as they return to our league. All eyes in the soccer world will be on New York City as the irrepressible Cosmos will make their long-awaited homecoming at Hofstra Stadium, the clubs home when the original powerhouse of American soccer won its first NASL championship in 1972. August 3rd has been a long time coming for the entire Cosmos organization, the NASL and most importantly our fans, Cosmos Chairman Seamus OBrien said. Its hard to describe how excited our team is. This is going to be a date that will be remembered for a very long time and we plan on making Opening Day a special one in New York. Were extremely excited to announce the fall schedule under our new format and await the return of one the greatest soccer legacies ever, said NASL Commissioner Bill Peterson. The 2013 NASL Fall Season will feature eight teams playing each other home and away for a total of 56 games with the team topping the final standings traveling to face the Spring Season champions in the annual Soccer Bowl on the weekend of November 16/17. The addition of the Cosmos means our league is going to be even tougher and it is very important to get off to a good start, not only in the spring season but the fall season as well, said Shore. This years format creates tough challenges for all of our teams, and everyone within the Strikers organization is excited and looking forward to a fun and exciting 2013 season. The Puerto Rico Islanders will continue to restructure their operations and target a return to action in 2014 when the NASL will also welcome new franchises in Indianapolis, Ottawa and Virginia as part of a 12-team league. We are committed to growing the NASL brand steadily, so rather than rush the Islanders back into action before they are ready, we are giving them time to work through the ongoing process of stabilizing their franchise, said Commissioner Peterson.Strikers/Cosmos Matchup Headlines Start of NASL Fall Championship By Chad BeattieLakeland, Fla. Lynn Universitys 10th-ranked mens golf team finished third out of 15 teams at the 32nd Annual Matlock Collegiate Championship.

The Florida Atlantic University baseball team prepares for the first pitch of the spring season as the favorite to repeat as Sun Belt Conference (SBC) champions after topping the leagues preseason poll. The Owls received five of the 10 first-place votes by league coaches. Senior first baseman Mark Nelson and sophomore starting pitcher Austin Gomber were named preseason All-SBC selections. FAU was the only school to receive multiple first-place votes. The team earned 89 points and edged FIU for the top spot with 85 points. The Owls has also been ranked No. 1 in SBC preseason polls by Baseball America and Perfect Game. It is an honor that we have been picked as the preseason favorites especially in such a prestigious McCormack, FAUs head baseball coach. It does put a target on your back each weekend, if it already wasnt. Its a great honor as we are ready for the challenge. Nelson led the conference with 35 of his 45 runs batted in coming in SBC games. The Orlando native hit .290 and tied for team-high honors with seven home runs. Nelson prepared for his senior season by being named the Most Valuable Player in last summers Florida Summer Collegiate Leagues All-Star game.

The left hander made 12 starts and finished second on the team with 63 strikeouts. He had a career-high 10 strikeouts as the Owls completed a three-game sweep of FIU. Mark and Austin have worked extremely hard and deserve this honor, said McCormack. Both will play a big role in the success of this years team.FAU Baseball Selected Favorite in SBC Preseason Poll Lynn Mens Golf Finishes Third at Matlock Classic

30 -Edition 134 February 15, through February 21, 2013 www.bocaratontribune.comSports By: Pedro HeizerWhen Miami signed Chris Birdman Andersen to his first 10-day contract about two weeks ago, Miami knew what they were getting. A player ready to prove all the doubters wrong, something the Miami Heat as an organization has been doing for a while now. Andersen, 34, has been out of Denver Nuggets, the team in which he started his NBA career, parted ways with him and the $9 million still owed him. Andersen has had a troubled past form the league for violating the leagues banned substances policy. After a short stint with the New Orleans Hornets, Andersen once again found a home with Denver, where he would be known simply as Birdman and notable for his distinctive hand-to-neck tattoos. Andersen quickly became one of the top per-minute rebounders and shotblockers in the league. From 2008 through the end of last season, Andersen, who with his hard-nosed work on the glass was averaging between 10 and 11 rebounds per 36 minutes in each of his four seasons, was one of Denvers most vital parts off the bench. However, last May, Andersens home was searched during an investigation of an Internet crime and although he was never charged, the bad press and changing roster dynamics led the Nuggets to part ways with the fan favorite. Since then, the Birdman has been looking for a new nest. Enter the Miami Heat, a team facing challenges in rebounding (26th in the league in overall rebounding rate, a 20-spot drop from last season) and overall defense (Miami is 11th in the league in defensive efficiency, seven spots off last years pace). Andersen, who is long, athletic and active, enticed the Heats brass as he would potentially offer help on both fronts. Once again, Pat Riley hit the nail in the head. The acquisition of the Birdman not only rejuvenated the 34 year old who recently told the South Floridas Sun Sentinel that he is not at 100 percent just yet, stating hes only at six feathers out of a total eleven but has also rejuvenated the Miami Heat. In contests where Andersen has played more than 10 minutes, Miami has averaged 9.2 offensive rebounds. The rejuvenation of Miamis rebounds is no surprise. Andersen has made a living on the boards, gobbling 10.5 rebounds per 36 minutes during his 10-year career. When Miami first signed Andersen, no one expected him to even crack the rotation, some went as far as to say Andersen was this seasons version of Eddy Curry. But, in the past few games, Andersen has been putting up very good numbers. In fact, Andersens offensive efficiency is another bonus. Andersens range is limited to at or near the rim, but his career effective field goal percentage (which accounts for free throws) of 55 percent is a significant upgrade over Anthonys career mark of 50 percent. In six games with the Heat, the Birdman has put up 3.7 points and is snatching four rebounds per game, all in 10.8 minutes per game. Andersen has earned his place in Miami and the Heat Couldnt be happier with the way things have worked out.Chris Andersen Has Been Exactly What Miami Needs
