This year over 250 students and over 120 adults participated in a marathon day of service known as SERVE-AThon, on Saturday, April 6, 2013. In the weeks leading up to SERVEA-Thon supplies needed for the projects were collected. All items that were used in the service projects were contributed by school families; no outside solicitations were made. Each class spends time learning about the project they are doing, who the recipients are, why they need help, and how the students efforts will meet those needs. The service project begins with the 3 year old pre-kindergarteners and goes through 8th grade. The younger children prepare packages that are distributed by various community organizations, while the children in grades 3 through 8 go into the community on SERVE-AThon Saturday. In high school, over 100 Boca Christian students serve others during spring mission trips that range from local outreach to working internationally.

For 15 days, participating classrooms will read the chronicles of CCC director Dina Feslers adventures in Afghanistan. Written over the course of three years the story offers an intimate view of an isolated and mysterious part of the world, and a personalized perspective of the challenges their Afghan peers face growing up in a refugee camp. Daily chapters are accompanied by photos, videos, experiential learning activities, and thought-provoking discussions to help students examine challenging world issues as well as their role as global citizens. Through an online forum, students across the country will post highlights of their discussions, exchange thoughts, ideas, observations, and insights from within their own communities. Students will also have the special opportunity to communicate with and learn from a diverse panel of Afghan experts including journalists, anthropologists, medics, and educators, also participating via the online forum. Afghanistan remains a world conundrum, but by taking a lighter approach to a heavy global issue we create a portal for young people to connect to it; where they can peel back the layers and examine why things are the way they are; to see, think, ask, and question the status quo, says Dina Fesler. By taking this journey with other U.S. teens, kids gain perspective on who they are as Americans, and can more effectively examine their relationships with other cultures-whether those cultures are across the world, across the country, or across town.Continued from page 1

And a drum roll please!, said Beth Johnston, executive vice president and YEA program director for the Greater Boca Raton Chamber of Commerce, told the roomful of students and parents. Bronsen Bloom, Musical Cares, Congratulations! The annual event, held at the end of the school year, was on the campus at Florida Atlantic University. The announcement was on Thursday, April 11. Bloom received a $5,000 scholarship to FAU and will compete for a $30,000 scholarship and the national title in Rochester, N.Y. April 25 & 26. He will face off against 41 young business owners nationwide for the scholarship money as well as a journey to the U.S. Chamber Summit in Washington D.C. Bloom, a Pine Crest school junior, now ahs the opportunity to launch his nonprofit organization, Musical Cares, to a national level. Winning this competition was not just important to me but to the organization, Bloom, 17, said. It allows us to help more and more students and schools, and with more donations in turn, we can give more instruments. Bloom was only 14 when he founded Musical Cares. As a member of his schools orchestra, he wanted to collect, recycle, and donate musical instruments to children, schools, and programs in need. Beth Johnston approached me when she saw an article about my organization and introduced me to the YEA program, he said, explaining how the program helped to improve his business skills The 30-week course is held once a week at the FAU Adams Center for Entrepreneurship. Twenty-four middle and high school students are selected from a pool of applicants and they spend the year learning how to create and grow a business. With the help of the academy I was able to form a business plan and then begin to approach investors to fund my business, Bloom said. It made my organization more reputable and I learned great business skills talking with business advisors, local businessmen, and teachers. To learn business skills at such a young age is preparing me to be in the business world, which is really cool. Johnston said the program is a great resume builder for college. It show consistency, tenacity and their willingness to work to make something for themselves, she added.

City Libraries to Sell bus Passes Need a Palm Tran bus pass? Municipal libraries countywide will soon begin selling bus passes under an initiative approved recently by the Palm Beach commission. Bus passes can be bought only at Palm Tran offices and the County operated libraries. Providing the public with more locations to purchase bus passes is a convenience to our city residents, Mayor Steven Abrams said. As a user and an advocate of public transportation to save gas and take cars off the roads, I support encouraging ridership. A test program that took place with Village of North Palm Beach was successful, and inquiries have now been received from other cities. Senior centers are other possible locations for future consideration. All passes are being sold at the applicable approved rates, without any commission or surcharge.Event to Show Benefits of Health, Stress Relief The public is invited to the 14th annual Boca Raton World Tai Chi & Chi Kung Day event. The free event will be at Sanborn Square, 72 N. Federal Highway. It will begin at 10 a.m. and last for several hours.

8 -Edition 143 April 26, through May 2, 2013 www.bocaratontribune.com EDITORIAL By C. Ron Allen EDITORIALS/LETTERSThe Boca Raton TribuneFounded January 15, 2010 Publisher Business C.E.OC.O.O. Editorial Interim Editor Managing Editor Copy Editor Online Edition Editor Social Media Software Engineer ``We Will not be Deterred, Even Through the PainThe images remain etched in my mind. They were faces of the people, captured moments after the two Boston Marathon terror blasts, that registered deep confusion and shock. Every face asked the same thing: Why is this happening? There will never be a satisfactory answer to the question. President Obama has promised there will be justice. We will get to the bottom of this, he said. With the killing of one suspect and the capture of another, Im still not sure we will. My deepest sympathies go out to the victims. In cowardly fashion, an act of evil has struck a soft target a community event based on health and fitness, courage and sportsmanship, which the fluttering world flags at the finish line showed was held in the spirit of good fellowship regardless of race or religion. The two murderers who used bombs to spread their hatred knew full well the finish line carnage would be televised around the world, with the intent of spreading fear and trepidation about other events treasured by free societies, such as the looming London Marathon. The ghastly attack is a stark reminder that terror can always strike when and where we least expect it. This attack hits home for me. Its personal. I grew up looking forward to each marathon, partly because it was Bostons great spring holiday Patriots Day. It was the day when the first battles of the War of Independence are remembered and which the city celebrates with the double-header of a major baseball game and the world-renowned marathon. It also was a day for family, one that called for where you and hundreds of thousands of people meet on one accord. Instead it was stained with the blood of so many innocents, and all because someone, somewhere, believed that killing others is an effective way of drawing attention to their otherwise neglected cause. What kind of evil is it that lies behind such acts? What warped version of reality takes over when someone plants bombs in places where thousands of people must pass and does so in the full expectation that many will be killed and dreadfully maimed? What cause could possibly be elevated, what problem cured, by such lunacy? Sadly, there are millions of people who live each day with the fear of random attacks: in Iraq, for example, where dozens of car bombings just last week left 50 people dead and more than 300 injured; or in Pakistan, where a bomb in a passenger bus killed nine on a few days ago; or in Nigeria, where dozens were killed last month after bombs exploded at a major bus station. Since the attacks of September 11, 2001, there have been dozens of tragedies around the world notably in Bali, Madrid, London and Mumbai. Many have been killed and injured, and we have shared the pain and anxiety of witnessing images of horror in nations we regard as friends. Mercifully, since September 11 changed the world, our beloved country has been free of such devastation until now. This has perhaps lulled some into a sense of security, although our freedom from terror here at home has been more by good management than good luck. While not all investigations are made public, I know that our law enforcement officials have foiled several plots by extremists looking to launch horrendous terror attacks on Americans. So while we reflect on the trauma unleashed in my beloved hometown, we should also give thanks to the largely unsung work of counter-terrorism forces that have prevented far worse here at home. The Boston Marathon outrage will test the resolve of the United States and of all free nations. Locally, there have been some rumblings as to the fate of public events. Awful though it was, cancelling other community gatherings would be a win for terrorism, whatever its origins. While prudent precautions are common sense, surrendering our way of life to fear is not an option. Boston now stands as another grim reminder of the political maxim uttered by many a democratic leader who knows liberty cannot be taken for granted: The price of freedom is eternal vigilance. address. to the editor.Letter Guidelines Letters to the EditorTheres a Bully on the Playground The American Heart Association is supporting House Bill 525 and Senate Bill 392, which limit liability for schools that open their playgrounds and facilities on a voluntarily basis to community groups and individuals during non-school hours. HB 525 passed the Florida House of Representatives, however the Florida Senate has failed to take any action. The plaintiffs attorneys who are protecting their own interests, not those of Floridas children or schools, are presently blocking action on this bill in the Senate. The decreasing physical health of Americans is costing more than $147 billion dollars annually in additional health care costs, according to the Centers for Disease Control. Our politicians talk about maximizing taxpayer dollars. Expanding playground use does just that/ The principals responsible for educating our children are also capable of ensuring the school grounds are well maintained. Under the new bill, the school districts interests will be protected, and so will our children. We urge the Senate to act quickly. Consider the health and wellness of our children and the tax-paying parents. Support the kids and the schools and stand up to the bullies and tell them to get off our playgrounds.

Wisdom is More Than Accumulated Information By Douglas HeizerTHOUGHTS FROM THE PUBLISHER For the Record bocaratontribune.comA wise person is a wellinformed individual. Yet, the mere accumulation of information does not necessarily constitute wisdom. You may go to school for many years and learn all kinds of important and legitimate facts; you may devour important books and benefit from what you find in them. But wisdom is acquired differently and it entails other factors! Throughout my years Ive encountered several persons who had an impressive academic baggage, but by observing their life and the decisions they often made, it was most obvious that they were devoid of true wisdom! By the same token, Ive also met quite a few people who had no academic credentials; some had not even finished elementary school. Nevertheless, in their dealings, in their demeanor, and by the results of many of their transactions, they demonstrated what wisdom entails. Ultimately, wisdom is the preferred path one should follow, the most important possession for one to acquire. It is reached through careful thinking, followed by sound choices led by that process. It entails gains as well as losses, additions but also subtractions! One cannot accept whatever is said or written without first analyzing those ideas through a pre-established grid. Wisdom is reached by intelligent comparisons and contrasts; it demands solid discernment between a variety of options; it can never be attained without a prior understanding of the potential consequences of every action taken! Wisdom needs not to be limited to a small segment of the human race. It is available to any person regardless of age, anyone who seeks it diligently throughout life, and is eager to incorporate it in all the decision-making processes, and in every aspect of ones daily living, in things great or small! The Author of Life is also the Giver of Wisdom which He does not deny to anyone who diligently seeks it from Him. Like most products we utilize, it must be followed in accordance with the prescriptions offered, lest it ceases from being wisdom. It enables its practitioner to view life more realistically and to arrive at conclusions never before imagined. Among all credentials anyone could ever display, wisdom is the most essential and absolutely necessary! Last Friday, I answered the phone to the angry voice of Assistant City Manager Mike Woika, questioning a story two of my reporters had done on the citys drinking water supply (Report Details Murky Drinking Water Violations). Woika insisted the reporting was inaccurate and misleading and demanded that I print a retraction even an apology. Floored that this type of ire would come from a representative of the city I have grown to love, reside in and run my business, I took a deep breath and listened to his ranting. I gave in, saying I would remove the story from the Web site (I couldnt do anything about the printed edition) and write a letter of apology to the city and my readers. My quickness to side with the assistant city manager haunted me all weekend. I looked over the document, met with the reporters and editor and shook my head in disbeliefdisbelief because I had given in out of what I thought was required respect as a citizen, and then disbeliefbecause I hadnt spoken with my reporters before I agreed with the city manager. I learned a hard lesson after speaking with the reporter and editor. As veteran journalists, they pride themselves on printing just the facts, no leaning. I looked at the Palm Beach County Health Department report, which listed five counts of violations from the city and shook my head. I heard my editors words over and over again: We are just a mirror. I reloaded the article on the Web site and skipped the apology. Its no surprise that I received an e-mail Tuesday from the assistant city manager again expressing his displeasure because I had not removed the article; I hadnt apologized, either. Im offended that the assistant city manager attempted to stifle the press. Journalists go through great pains to make sure that their stories are accurate. Without the presence of a strong media, the city of Boca Raton has gone unchecked and unwatched for many years. As the paper of record, we are also the watchdog, as such we hope to give the citizens the information to continue to reside in a community seen throughout the world as a place for families and a hub for businesses. Stay tuned.

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 email@example.com. Have you ever heard of JeanFrancois Gravelet? He lived from 1824 to 1897, and used the professional pseudonym, Blondin, gaining world acclaim as a tightrope walker and acrobat from London, England. Blondin crossed Niagara Falls in upstate New York, U.S.A. a number of times on a wire 1,100 feet long, suspended 160 feet above the raging waters. He performed his death-defying tightrope feats with different theatrical variations: Blindfolded; in a sack; pushing a wheelbarrow; on stilts; even while carrying a man on his back. We might not be walking a high wire across a raging waterfall, but in the 21st century workplace, it seems like that at times. There is the balance between ethics and profit; embarking into the unknown with an unproven product or service; juggling work and family priorities; economic uncertainties. When I read about Blondin, I think of a man who also attempted a death-defying feat. His name was Peter. You might recall the biblical account where Peter and the other disciples of Jesus were in a small boat in the midst of a raging storm. Suddenly they saw Jesus walking across the water. Impulsively, Peter asked, Lord, if it is youtell me to come to you on the water (Matthew 14:28). Jesus response was simple: Come. when Peter saw the high waves he was terrified and began to sink. Save me, Lord! he shouted (Matthew 14:30). I suspect we all would have done the same. Have you ever embarked on a project or made a decision, thinking at the time it was the right thing to do, only to have circumstances immediately bring your judgment into question? I want to remind you Simon Peter did many notable things during the course of his lifetime, but this episode of walking upon the water ranked as one of his greatest: no high wire, no rocks hidden underneath. Surrounded by obvious dangers, faced with utter impossibility, Peter found inner strength in his Lords command: Come. For a few moments, Peter shared with his Master in the suspension of natural laws. Then the whole project blew up at four in the morning. One moment, his eyes fixed on Jesus, Peter was walking above the storm; the next he was in over his head. Soaked to the skin, Peter was rescued by Jesus. He learned an important truth: A saint is not someone that never fails; a saint is someone that is trusting in God and gets up and goes on again every time he or she falls. Lord, save me! Peters words were simple, without time to elaborate on details, without time to observe ceremonial laws. But in reality, this is the quickest, easiest, and most desperate way to reach the heart of God. What did Peter do wrong? He was blamed: Not for daring, but for doubting. Not for failure, but faltering. Not for lack of courage, but lack of confidence. You may not be a Blondin or Peter, but you probably find yourself in todays fearsome workplace, in the midst of the night, and the storm is contrary. Do not measure the waves, do not gauge the wind; do not give in to the danger, and most of alldo not throw in the towel and sink under the circumstances. The Bible offers this advice: Keep your eyes on Jesus, our Leader and Instructorif you want to keep from becoming fainthearted and weary (Hebrews 12:1-3). husband. At the time I was earning good money at a job that I loved, with a great company. His earnings were only about ten percent more than mine, and we had only been married for five years, so we waived all alimony rights. I have been getting a relatively little child support because of our nearly equal earnings at the time of the divorce. Over the last five years due to the market conditions in my industry. At first I voluntarily changed jobs for a comparative salary. Within a few months I was fired from y new job because of lack of production in a commission job, as the times grew worse. I have landed a new commission job at about half of my old salary. I tried to negotiate an increase with my Ex with no success. I have a little money left and will use it if necessary to try to get a modification of my child support. The children are now 16 and 13 years old. My former husband still works for the same well known successful company that he did when we divorced, but I do not know how much money he is making now. How much will it cost to get the modification? Am I likely to win? Will winning be worth it for me? A: Winning a modification case for more child support will depend on you being able to prove that your lost wages was a material, involuntary loss. Your original job change was voluntary, but not at less money. You were terminated from your second involuntarily. Your current wages are half of what they were at the time of your divorce. It appears as if you have an excellent case for a modification, unless your former husband has suffered a depressed income equal to yours. You will be able to determine that soon after a case is filed. Your costs will be limited, compare to your original divorce case as the issues are far more limited than in the original divorce case. The big question is whether or not the increase you are likely to win will justify the expense you will pay. Your oldest has two or three years more child support, and your younger five or six. I suggest that you pay an attorney a small amount to have him calculate the amount of increase you would win if successful, using your former husbands old wage rate for starters. There is a risk he is making less, but continuous employment with this old company, a well known successful company leads belief that he still makes at least what he was before. For an hours worth of legal costs you can find out what your new child support might be, and you can determine whether or not the proposed litigation is worthwhile.Walking The Wire In The WorkplaceFAITHBy Rick Warren bocaratontribune.com

I thought you had to be a fan of drag shows to enjoy Priscilla, but I was wrong. This is a spectacularly visual show for any sexual or political persuasion. Both the 1994 MGM movie and the stage musical by Stephan Elliott and Allan Scott are specifically set in Australia, with all the accents and details that entails. Australia is a rugged place with tough characters and a forbidding Outback, which makes staging a flouncy female impersonator show in the middle of nowhere all the more absurd. Wade McCollum, Scott Willis and Bryan West are Tick (Mitzi), Bernadette and Adam (Felicia), the three stars of a costume drag show in Sydney, Australia. When the fellows (girls) get a booking way out in the desert town of Alice Springs, Tick sees it as a chance to have a reunion with his long ago-liaison Marion (Christy Faber) and the sixyear-old son Benji (Shane Davis, Will B.) he has never met. The nominal plot is the least important part of Priscilla. Far more important are the incredible costumes by Tim Chappel and Lizzy Gardiner; the magic, color-changing bus called Pricilla, designed by Bryan Thomson, and the thumping, thundering 1970s and 1980s greatest-hit disco songs by the likes of Madonna, Tina Turner, Cyndi Lauper, Dianne Warwick, Gloria Gaynor and even John Denver. Adding to the spectacle are three airborne Divas: Emily Afton, Bre Jackson and Brit West, each a powerhouse in her own right. Yes, there are real woman such as the Divas, a transsexual Bernadette, a gay-friendly mechanic named Bob (Joe Hart) and assorted crossdressing gay and straight men. Its a heady, disorienting brew punctuated by one showcase song number after the other. The mood is set with Its Raining Men and continues with an amazing Tina Turner impersonation by a character known as Miss Understanding (Nik Alexzander) and the funniest rendition of the sappy ballad MacArthur Park you will ever see or hear. Funny? Check. Tuneful? Check. Colorful? Double-check. Meaningful? Well sort of, if you feel in an ideal world even the most dramatically-opposed characters can get along. Wouldnt that be nice?

April 26, through May 2, 2013 www.bocaratontribune.com B2 Edition 143 Section B Entertainment Skip SheffieldHome Run Scores in Boca RatonThe good news is that Home Run made and surpassed its goal of 1,000 ticket sales for its first weekend at Cinemark Palace theaters in Boca Raton. Even better news is the movie is better than I had expected. Home Run is a sports-oriented movie with a special agenda. Handsome and rugged Scott Elrod stars as Cory Brand, a hotshot baseball slugger for the fictional Kansas City Grizzlies. Cory is a power hitter with a hot temper to match. The temper is fueled by alcohol, which he sneaks in increasing amounts. When Cory has a temper tantrum that injures a bat boy, he is suspended. His loyal agent Helene (scene-stealer Vivica A. Fox) tries to do damage control, but Cory recklessly drives a rental Corvette while drunk and hits a tractor while injuring his younger brother Clay (Jim Divoti), a lawyer who has been trying to help him. Cory is ordered into a 12-step program. The only one offered in his small Oklahoma home town is Celebrate Recovery, a Christcentered program. Home Run is quite frankly an advertisement for 12-step programs and specifically Celebrate Recovery, which has local chapters that turned out in force for opening night. Both Cory and Clay had been damaged by an abusive, alcoholic father (Timothy Fall) who was a frustrated baseball player. In the course of the story we see a number of testimonies from people in recovery, all of whom have been damaged in one way or the other. In Corys case it takes some tough love from his hometown exgirlfriend Emma (Dorian Brown) who is now a widow with a son and a big secret for Cory. Of special interest to local readers is the fact Dorian Brown grew up in Boca Raton and got her start acting in the now-defunct Little Palm Family Theatre. Im happy to report that pretty Dorian did just fine with her poignant role. Home Run continues through Thursday, April 25 and possibly longer.A Very Funny SpankSpank played just two performances at Parker Playhouse, but it was a very funny parody of Fifty Shades of Gray, which I have not read. After seeing Spank I dont think I will waste any time attempting it. The best part of Spank was its improvisational moments with Danielle Trzcinski as the nave, submissive Tasha. Danielle ventures into the audience and interviews boyfriends who are total strangers, but willing to play the game. Gabe Bowling as the sadomasochistic Hugh Hanson was the big attraction to the overwhelmingly female audience. I must admit Bowling has some pretty good moves, but Danielle Trzcinski is a talent to watch.Polo Wraps in Wellington, Opens in Miami BeachThe 109th Maserati U.S. Open Final was played Sunday, April 21 at Palm Beach International Polo in Wellington. Two powerhouse 26goal teams faced off in a hard-fought shirts edged out Valiente in the white Open Championship. These action shots are by Boca Tribunes own Mike Gora. High-goal polo is over for now at International Polo Club of Palm Beach, but this weekend there will be polo of a different sort in Miami Beach. Miami Beach Polo World Cup 2013 runs April 25-28 on the beach between 21st and 22nd Streets in Miami Beach. The action starts Thursday with a South Beach Womens Polo Cup V Kick-Off Party and continues Friday with Miami Beach Polo Cup IX, Saturday with more World Cup IX plus La Martina Fashion Show and Sunday with Miami Beach Polo World Cup Final Play-Offs and Farewell Party.

Edition 143 B3Section B April 26, through May 2, 2013www.bocaratontribune.com Buddha Sky Bar/Garden Superb Eclectic Asian Foods Food Review Marc Kent bocaratontribune.com This upscale, lively, ultramodern bistro offers exciting creations starting with a choice of steamed dim sum from a list of 5. Carlene, Steve and this reviewer enjoyed steamed seafood shu mai with its scallop, tiger shrimp, shitake mushrooms and red peppers in a wonton wrap. This was followed by king shu mai with blue crab, lobster, shrimp, pork and asparagus, then mushroom dumplings featuring both shitakes and enokis. Of the 4 pan seared choices, we had grilled pork dumplings filled with pork, cilantro, mushroom and salted radishes. Each had fine distinctive flavor with fine taste and texture, accompanied by three dipping sauces. The miso soup had a nice sweet, deep flavor and the hot/sour was full bodied, not too acute but excellent. Rock shrimp tempura was a huge dish of small shrimp, properly coated as was the tempura vegetables featuring asparagus, cauliflower, sweet potato, onion rings and broccolini great selections! The baked scallop was a poor choice, just so-so. A surprise the Peruvian style ceviche was as fine as weve had in excellent Peruvian bistros! There are 5 additional starters listed plus a roster of 6 items on the Robata Grill. We turned to the menu of 13 sushi and tasted fresh, cool yellowtail, blue crab, spicy tuna and Scottish salmon All tasty, nice size portions. Well sample others another time. Choosing from the Wok category was a problem as some 18 listings covered beef, chicken, fish, shrimp, vegetables and starches. We had the Kimchee glazed sea bass with this Korean glaze atop a large portion of perfectly prepared bass accompanied by a edamame risotto and stir fry green beans. This delicious Peking duck arrived in precut shards of tasty, tender fowl with scallions, carrots, bean sprouts and cucumber sticks with soft pancakes and a fine homemade hoisin sauce. These are great dishes both must try! We must return to explore others in the near future. Weekday evenings find only two out of the four desserts available assorted mocha ice cream in mango and guava and red velvet flavors plus ginger/coconut ice cream. Friday and Saturday adds peanut butter and jelly wonton plus Buddhas Bento containing milk chocolate lava cake with Grand Marnier, coconut curry crumble, ginger ice cream, a green tea Cigar filled with strawberry mousseline, yuzu marshmallow and fresh fruits. These we will also taste another day. With a wine and beer listing, Buddha presents 15 specialty creative cocktails; 26 sakes (3 by glass, 23 by bottle), 16 white and 21 red by bottle and glass.

Fitness, 4950 Technology Way. The victim told officers that his cell phone and money clip, which held cash, two credit cards, his drivers license and social security card, were taken from his locked car. There were no signs of forced entry into the vehicle and the victim said he used the key fob to lock and unlock the car. A Boca Raton detective discovered that on the same day as the burglary, a male named Vincent Merulla had been involved in a crash on Military Trail in Deerfield Beach and was found to be in possession of the burglary victims credit cards and social security card.

As the officer passed them, he watched as one subject left the sidewalk and appeared to drop something next to a light pole. The subject repeated the behavior at the next light pole. The officer turned around and stopped to speak to the two subjects. As the officer approached them, he realized that they appeared to be juveniles. The officer asked if they were okay and if they needed help. The males, identified as 17 year old Kendrick King and 13 year old David Gamali, said they lived in a group home in Ft. Lauderdale and had come to Boca to go to the mall, but got stranded when they missed the last bus. They told the officer they were out past curfew and were probably reported as missing. King was carrying a backpack and allowed officers to search it. Inside, officers found a wallet, several gift cards, and an iPhone. Officers found a Prada purse, Florida drivers license, several credit/debit cards, and social security cards. They also found a set of car keys, several gift cards and a bracelet scattered between the two light poles. Gamali was in possession of a phone, cash, and a Woodfield Country Club identification card. Officers made contact with the owners of the two identification cards and discovered both were victims of cars burglaries. Officers arrested King and Gamali and charged both with burglary to an auto and grand theft. Detectives interviewed King and Gamali. Gamali refused to speak with them. King told detectives they went into the Hamptons of Woodfield Country Club and rifled through many unlocked cars looking for property. Detectives charged both with five additional burglaries to automobiles.

DSN said SNO containing zero nitrates was found to be the purest among all bottled waters tested as opposed to many of the leading bottled spring waters, which contain various levels of nitrates. SNO is naturally filtered through layers of volcanic lava rock, giving it the purity, natural balance and crisp clean refreshing taste. If nitrates are one supplement youd rather do without in your drinking water, you might consider licking a 20,000-year-old Icelandic glacier or just picking up a six-pack of SNO, the ultimate pure water that comes from an Icelandic glacier, said DSN editor Adrienne Mazzone While its important to your health to drink lots of water, DSN along with a growing number of nutritionists, scientists and environmentalists are noticing that most bottled spring water contains rising levels of nitrates. SNO doesnt come from below ground like spring water, but from a 20,000-year old Icelandic glacier, said Mazzone, so its the cleanest, purest water from a pristine source and an unpolluted, pre-historic time. Currently its sold in the UK and places like Dubai and fine hotels and restaurants in Europe and stores like Harrods, and should be on supermarket shelves in the U.S. by late December, she said. Being a Glacier Water sourced from above the ground, SNO therefore can not be contaminated by fertilizer run-off from farmland into underground aquifers contaminating the water source.

Edition 14325for news 24/7 go to bocaratontribune.com www.bocaratontribune.comApril 26, through May 2, 2013Business News This is not a column on fashion in the workplace but rather appropriateness of your attire in the workplace. Several years ago the book entitled Dress for Success by John T. Molloy, a premier American image consultant and clothing researcher, was published. The focus was how men should dress to be successful in the business arena. It served as a guideline for many people entering the business world. It had only one chapter on appropriate dress for women in the business environment. It is interesting to note that he followed this with, The Womans Dress For Success Book. So much for equal rights. Molloy points out that a womans success does not depend entirely or even primarily on how she dresses, but dress is an important factor in most womens careers. Research shows that when a woman dresses for success, it does not guarantee success, but if she dresses poorly or inappropriately, it almost ensures failure. Molloy goes on to say, Most women know men who dress horribly and are very successful. Dressing poorly sometimes does not destroy a mans career the way it does a womans. If a man is really good at what he does, he is often referred to as a diamond in the rough and can move up in spite of the poor image. This is obviously a double standard and certainly not fair. Molloys books concentrated on being aware of proper coordination of attire, how to make an impression and what colors to wear. There is mention of dressing for the interview and on the job. He indicates the importance of power clothes and proper attire for lawyers, doctors and other professionals. Molloy points out that clothes can make you look more influential, knowledgeable and pleasant. Molloys books are great guidelines for many people entering the world of business. However, dressing for success is more than just coordination of attire, powerful clothes, colors, and silhouettes. The approach should be to understand the ground rules of the dress code of your company and your clients. Knowing the dress code and dressing accordingly is the first step in dressing for success. While we can agree that when we dress properly, it can eliminate a negative response from our clients, it is also important to be aware of the dress code of the clients company. Several questions should be addressed and answered before you, dress for success. For example, do they have a casual clothing day? How formal is the dress code during the week and how informal is the casual dress code? An effort should be made by business people to not only understand this dress code but to dress accordingly. This is not to say that you have to lose your identity but rather to eliminate those aspects in the way you dress which your client might view as negative and distracting. Fit into the business environment that you are engaged in try not to be too different! Dressing for success is a common sense exercise. However, as the saying goes, common sense is not so common.

In previous columns, we have discussed the financial impact of tourism, particularly in the South Florida/Boca Raton area as well as the central part of the state where theme parks and other amusements are familiar draws. This column will focus on international trade which, again in 2012, proved to be one of the states strongest economic sectors, according to a March 2013 report from Enterprise Florida Inc. Florida-origin exports reached an all-time high of $66.4 billion while total merchandise trade (exports plus imports) hit a record $162.2 billion. The report says Florida continues to have the highest trade surplus among all U.S. states, a reflection of the states role as a global hub in the Western Hemisphere. International trade and investment accounted for about onesixth of the states economic output last year and supports an estimated one million jobs, further underscoring its importance to the states financial coffers. Also underscored by the report is the fact that trade and foreign investment play a fundamental role in Floridas economy by fueling growth, supporting jobs and diversifying the economic infrastructure. The upbeat assessment from Enterprise Florida generally dovetails with a report by the Florida Chamber of Commerce which proclaims the Sunshine States total trade activity has grown by some 69 percent since 2007 when the Great Recession struck. The Florida Chamber says international trade volume is a useful indicator of the states overall economic activity. As imports and exports increase, Florida employers may require additional employees to handle the growing level of commerce throughout the state. Although most economic developers focus on export value, strong imports can indicate improvement in consumer demand and also create transportation and logistics jobs for Floridians. In the months prior to the 2012 holiday season, trade activity suggested retail sales in Florida would increase as imports reached levels unseen since the onset of the Great Recession. Typically after the peak season, total trade activity declines primarily because of a drop-off in imports. However, recent data from the Census Bureau suggest Floridas trade activity in November held strong -relatively unchanged as the 2.7 percent growth in imports nearly offset the 3 percent decrease in exports. Trade activity growth in Florida appeared stronger than that of the U.S. as a whole as labor union disputes hindered the nations largest seaports. As a right-to-work state, Florida has very little in the way of labor strife. The strike last year of stagehands at the Kravis Center that delayed the opening of Jersey Boys stood out because of the general scarcity of union troubles. As one would expect with standard seasonal variation experienced in the month of November, U.S. imports and exports declined. The Los Angeles Port strike provides one possible explanation in the sharp decline in imports, as L.A. is the largest port in the U.S. California Public Radio reported that the one-week strike caused a 16 percent decrease in container volumes in November 2012 when compared to November 2011. However, this fact should not discount the positive activity occurring at Florida ports. Encouraging additional international trade through Florida will be a key driver of the states future economy. Here are a few bullet points about Floridas economy from Enterprise Florida: the value of trade in goods and services as well as foreign direct investment, accounts for about one-sixth (18 percent) of Floridas economy. services along with employment by foreign-owned companies is estimated to support more than one million jobs in the state. Manufacturers, seaports, airports and logistics providers all employ Floridians and their families. export, accounting for 20 percent of all U.S. exporters. This is the second largest number of exporters in the U.S. after California. has grown by 48 percent since 2005, rising from 39,482 to more than 58,000 in 2010. exporters are small and medium-sized enterprises with 500 or fewer employees. accounted for 68 percent of Florida exports in 2010. This is the highest figure among the 50 states and is much higher than the U.S. average of 34 percent. of Commerces Florida Trade and Logistics Study, jobs in Floridas trade and logistics industries pay 30 percent higher wages than the state average. United States ranks Florida second in the U.S. for Ex-Im Bank small business financing authorizing $400 million in export credit for Florida small businesses in their last fiscal year. reports that, on average, companies that export grow 15 percent faster, pay 15 percent higher wages and are 12 percent more profitable than those that do not export.

28 -Edition 143 April 26, through May 2, 2013 www.bocaratontribune.comBy Chad BeattieThe exclusive club of Lynn University Athletics Hall of Famers will get a little bigger with the induction of four new faces on Tuesday, April 23rd at the Student-Athlete Recognition Awards Show. Four former Fighting Knights will take their place among the schools best and brightest, bringing the total number of enshrined to 46. Those being inducted are four-time national championship golf and soccer coach Eric Abreu, womens basketball standout Gulsah Akkaya, womens tennis stalwart Monika Mastilarova and womens soccer star Dorte Nielsen. A member of the Lynn University Athletics family from 1985 until his retirement in 2011, Abreu served as head coach of the mens golf program from 1993-2005, was an assistant coach with the mens soccer program from 1985-2010, served as head coach for the womens golf team from 1992-93 and at the end, assisted with the mens golf program from 2005-11. During his time with the Fighting Knights, the Madeira, Portugal, native captured one mens golf national title, three mens soccer national crowns and helped two individuals, womens golfer Genevieve Laverdure and mens golfer Henrik Nystrom, claim individual national championships. As head coach of the mens golf team, Abreu led Lynn to its first NCAA National Championship and started a string of 12 consecutive NCAA appearances for the program. If that were not impressive enough, Abreu assisted teams recorded 10 Sunshine State Conference titles, 111 All-American selections and countless NAIA and NCAA appearances. Abreu made his mark as a midfielder playing professional soccer for 12 clubs in 10 different countries, including South Australia and the Philippines during a 21-year period. He also represented Japan and Hong Kong in five all-star matches. A three-year letterwinner for the womens basketball team from 199699, Akkaya was a force to be reckoned with on the offensive end during her time with the Blue & White. The Bornova, Izmir, Turkey, native closed out her stellar career by leading the Sunshine State Conference in scoring at 23.8 points per game, garnering the first NCAA All-America and First Team AllSSC selection in program history. She still ranks in the top-10 of single season records for points, scoring Average, field goals made & attempted, three-point FG made, attempted & percentage, free throws made & attempted, rebounds, rebound average and minutes average and in the top-10 of career records for points, scoring average, field goals made, attempted & percentage, three-point FG made, attempted & percentage, free throws made, attempted & percentage. Mastalirova is one of the most decorated players in Lynn womens tennis history, earning ITA AllAmerican honors four times in singles and three times in doubles from200104. She was also a three-time first-team All-SSC singles and doubles player, was named the SSC Player of the Year as a junior in 2003 and was selected as the top player on the SSC Silver Anniversary Womens Tennis Team. Mastalirova led the Fighting Knights to the NCAA Division II National Championship in 2001 and a national runner-up finish in 2004. Additionally, Lynn won three SSC titles during her time and went an astounding 25-1 in regular season SSC play. Her name is still littered through the record books as she is one of nine players to post an undefeated singles season and one of eight to record an undefeated doubles season. She is third in career doubles winning percentage (.926), tied for fourth in career doubles wins (87) and tied for second with 24 doubles victories in a season. One of the pioneers of the womens soccer program, Nielsen was a key member of the Fighting Knights from 1990-93. The four-year letterwinner helped lead the team to its first national championship in 1992 and a nationalrunner-up finish in 1993. Nielsen was named the 1992 NAIA National Most Valuable Player when she scored 25 goals and added eight assists for 58 points. In addition, she was honored as a two-time NSCAA and two-time NAIA All-American and showed she was just as brilliant in the classroom by earning Scholar-Athlete All-America accolades in her final year. She holds the record for most goals scored in a career (89), is tied for third with 205 points and led her team in scoring and goals all four seasons. The Class of 2013 becomes the 13th class to be inducted into the Lynn University Athletic Hall of Fame. Mens & womens soccer and womens tennis lead the way with eight members, followed by administrators/ coaches with five selections. Baseball has garnered five picks and womens basketball is next with three. Mens basketball, womens golf, softball and mens tennis have two honorees and volleyball holds one selection.SportsThe Boca Raton Tribune Polo Wraps in Wellington, Opens in Miami Beach By Skip SheffieldOnce upon a time, high-goal polo was played in Boca Raton at Royal Palm Polo Grounds. Polo is still played at Royal Palm under the direction of Joey Casey, but it is no longer high-goal, high stakes international competition. For that you have to go to the International Polo Club of Palm Beach in Wellington way out west on Lake Worth Boulevard. Boca Raton Tribune columnist and photographer Mike Gora and I took the trip Sunday, April 21 to see the 109th Maserati U.S. Open Final. This is where the best of the finest polo players and horses face off for ultimate bragging rights and is the culmination of the 10th anniversary season. The final two teams were Valiente, Piaget Gold Cup finals a few weeks ago. Players are rated by goals, 10 being the highest rating. Valiente has two 10-goal players, Pelon Stirling one 10-goal player, Facundo Pieres, an 8-goal player Magoo LaPrida and 7-goal player Mike Azzaro. Almost all the players are from South America with the exception of Mike Azzaro, who is from the USA. The USA spirit was set by singersongwriter Lee Greenwood who sang his signature tune God Bless the USA for the first time ever at a polo match. The competition was fast and furious with both teams rated at 26 goals. Polo is very combative both for humans and horses, and penalties were plentiful. The score was tied eight times in the hard-fought over Valiente 16-13. Facundo Pieres lead all players with an incredible 12 goals, 9 by penalty, earning him Most second U.S. Open Championship. A player is only as good as his or her horse. Valiente team patron Bob Jornayvazs horse Medallion was voted Best Playing Pony. Concha, a 7-year old American Thoroughbred, was named Horse of the Year. High-goal polo is over for now at International Polo Club of Palm Beach, but this weekend there will be polo of a different sort in Miami Beach. Miami Beach Polo World Cup 2013 runs April 25-28 on the beach between 21st and 22nd Streets in Miami Beach. The action starts Thursday with a South Beach Womens Polo Cup V Kick-Off Party and continues Friday with Miami Beach Polo Cup IX, Saturday with more World Cup IX plus La Martina Fashion Show and Sunday with Miami Beach Polo World Cup Final Play-Offs and Farewell Party.

The Strikers led 1-0 on a goal from Jemal Johnson, but Carolina came back on first half penalty kick goals from Floyd Franks and Brian Shriver, who also scored a goal in the second half. Fort Lauderdale was the first on the board in the 11th minute when Jemal Johnson took a pass from Pecka which he took one touch on and shot low toward the far post, beating Carolinas Akira Fitzgerald to make it 1-0 Strikers. Carolina tied the match in the 27th minute when RailHawks captain Floyd Franks scored on a penalty kick after the Strikers were called for a hand ball in the area. The RailHawks took a 2-1 lead in the 35th minute after Strikers defender Toni Stahl was called for a foul inside the penalty area and Carolina forward Brian Shriver was able to convert the penalty kick against goalkeeper Matt Glaeser. After halftime, the RailHawks maintained their pressure and it turned into a goal in the 58th minute when Ty Shipalane sent a cross that Shriver volleyed into Glaeser, but converted a loose rebound to make it 3-1 Carolina. The Strikers continued to press the RailHawks, producing 15 shots for the game, but it wasnt enough as the RailHawks were helped by timely defending from Kupono Low and Fitzgerald. The Strikers return home on April 27th to take on the rival Tampa Bay Rowdies in a Florida Derby match up at historic Lockhart Stadium.

Im glad that I may have helped represent my school on such a large stage. Its a blessing. Coming from a small school like FAU, Morris recognizes that he has helped open some doors for the university and believes that the program is headed in the right direction.
