Editorial Interim Editor Managing Editor Copy Editor Online Edition Editor Social Media Software Engineer Hooray for All Mothers Over the last month, my mailbox has been bombarded with invitations to events honoring mothers, news releases sharing possible feel good Mothers Day stories and even a few emails offering deals and giveaways at local eating establishments. But there is one event I will highlight, not because it is near and dear to me but because of its significance. On Saturday, five women will be recognized for their years of giving unselfishly to young people in their communities. The five will be crowned as KOPMNs Ladies of Distinction at a picnic at Lake Ida Park, Eastern Pavilion in Delray Beach. For the next 12 months, they will wear this honor proudly as they represent the cream of the finest in motherhood in Palm Beach County. And not all these women gave birth to a child. There is one, Rachel VanNess, a Delray Beach police officer, who has devoted much of her career to helping kids in the city. The Boca Raton resident has given her money, time and love unconditionally to improve the lives of these youth. When she is not on patrol downtown, Officer Rachel, as the kids call her, can be found meeting with representatives from community groups to plan an event or devise a performance improvement plan to help a child excel in school. She has worked with local business people to provide homework assistance or tutoring for youth at Village Academy. A kid at heart, she is a lover of horses. It is not unusual to find her taking a group of children to one of the ranches in the western corridors of the city. She exposes them to a life outside the city limits. She has taken them kayaking and canoeing at Jonathan Dickenson State Park in Jupiter. All this is above and beyond her regular assigned duties as a police officer. In the truest sense, she is an example of community policing. The other honorees are: Athalone H. Brailford, a retired educator who was one of the founders of Operation Save the Children. The program, which morphed into the Knights of Pythagoras Mentoring Network nine years ago, was one of the earlier tutoring programs in south Palm Beach County. Brailford and a handful of other black teachers tutored children in math and reading at Pompey Park on Saturday mornings for more than 30 years. -Vera Rolle Farrington founded the Spady Cultural Museum in Delray Beach after more than 30 years as an educator in the school system. She continues to educate youth about the history of African Americans in Delray Beach and Palm Beach County. Cathy DeMatto parlayed her professional expertise in marketing and development to assist disadvantaged children in the greater community. Her commitment to help youth causes is evidenced by the number of organizations with which she has been affiliated. Among them are the Boys and Girls Club of Palm Beach County, the Caridad Center, the Milagro Center, Delray Beach Police Advisory board, the Spirit of Giving Network, Kids in Distress, Zonta International, and the City of Delray Beach Education board. She has chaired the citys Principal for a Day program for five years. -The name Janet Meeks is synonymous with youth, education and children at least in Delray Beach. She was one of the founders of the Plumosa School of the Arts Foundation, she served on the Chambers Education foundation and was an adult mentor for the citys Youth Council. She was a board member of the Boys and Girls Club, a mentor for Take Stock in Children and she has championed many educational programs such as the Mayors literacy initiative, Principal for a Day, and the Delray Beach Pop Up Book. Meeks continues to promote the importance of education in the community. Organizers are billing Saturdays picnic as a family event. There will be the usual picnic food. In fact, the renowned Smoker 61 BBQ will be providing the food. There wont be much games or entertainment. Instead organizers are hoping to use the two-hours to show all mothers how much they are appreciated. Students from the mentoring program will offer tributes to their moms. Bobby Canatta, chairman of KOPMN, formerly Knights of Pythagoras Mentoring Network, said many of the children served by the organization come from single family households. And many times for single mothers, Mothers Day comes and goes because a father is not around to help celebrate and the children are usually too young. The result is that single mothers often feel lonely or left out, which can make difficult situations even more so. Saturdays event, he said, is meant to try to ease the burden, if only for a little while. Its a gift to these mothers as well, he said. Its a day for them to come out and enjoy the afternoon for a few hours. And hear from their kids how much they love and appreciate them. address. to the editor.Letter Guidelines Letters to the EditorCongratulations on the new look of the website.

Edition 1459for news 24/7 go to bocaratontribune.com www.bocaratontribune.comMay 10, through May 16, 2013 EDITORIALS & LETTERS By Dr. Synesio Lyra, Jr.POSITIVE LIVING world, having received his education in four of them. When he resided in southern California, he wrote a weekly column for the daily Anaheim Bulletin, which was carried for about six years, until he moved to south Florida. Always Put Service Above Self! By Douglas HeizerTHOUGHTS FROM THE PUBLISHER What I Learned From My Mother About GodRotary International has been around since 1905, doing good now at all corners of the globe. At some point of its development the organization adopted as its main motto, Service Above Self, coupled with the reminder that He profits most who serves best. Ive been proud to be member of a local Rotary club since 1977, where those principles are continually emphasized through tangible activities for the benefit of many. It should not take too long for you to grasp that you help yourself best when you aid others first, not the other way around! Nevertheless, this ideal needs not be limited only to members of an organization where it is repeated and practiced. Every human can and should adopt this ideal in ones daily operation. As Paul D. Moody had eloquently stressed, The measure of a man is not in the number of his servants but in the number of people whom he serves. Servant-leadership is a noble quality to manifest! As individuals and as a nation we have been, and continue to be, a most favored people, especially in terms of material benefits. All the blessings that come to us should not be stored somewhere, to guarantee their availability whenever we desire them. Many of the good things of life have an expiration date; several shall be corroded and will decay, becoming good for nothing after a while. Thus, we should never block those blessings by keeping them from flowing out of us to impact a large number of people in need. Good deeds have no expiration date for human need is ever present around the globe! During prosperous times as well as in periods of difficulty, we always have enough to share with others so as to minimize their need and renew their hope for better things to come. In fact, during his successful life on earth, the late Sir John Marks Templeton recognized that real success can never be achieved without the elements of usefulness, of service. As Ive often stressed, the giver of any gift is never impoverished through the giving; on the contrary, such person becomes a real beneficiary of that gesture when it truly proceeds from the heart. Perhaps one reason why America never ceases to be blessed is a consequence of the generosity of its people in so many ways to so varied situations! Let us never lose this fervor!Several things we learn from our mothers. Truthfully, thanks to them, we walk our first steps in life. They worry about us and treat us with kindness, even after we are adults. I was able to learn a lot about God from my mother. In fact, she gave me more practical lessons than theology. As a matter of fact, I could say 99% practical and 1% theological. I learned from her, everyday of our lives, while she raised my sister and me with difficulties. Thank God, I must be very honest that the lessons have not ended yet. My mother continues to teach me with her love, about God, every single day. GOD IS LOVE: It was the first lesson I learned from my mother. I learned that there was someone who loved me more than she did (and that is something very hard for mothers to believe, the daughters in law can tell that). Someone who wished and planned my birth more than she and my father did. Someone who already had a purpose for my life, even before she thought I could exist. He always wants the best for me, treats me with the kindness only possible to God. In the hardest moments of our lives, my mother never lost her belief that God loves us. GOD WILL ALWAYS BE WITH ME: He will never leave me on my own. My mother taught me that too. Every morning, when I woke up to go to school, or better, when she woke me up to go to school, she taught me to be sure that God would be with me each moment of my day. He would be with me going down the stairs, crossing the street, getting together with my friends at school (and also with the ones that were not so close). Even after she separated from my father, when I was 11 years old, she guaranteed me that God would always be with us that He would not leave us on our own. Many and many struggles! But my mother was always certain that God was in charge. I then learned that God would be with me my entire life. If I was in any kind of difficulty, whatever it would be, I could be tranquil because He would never leave me by myself, he would show me the best path and teach me. GOOD LISTENS TO ME: God is always ready to listen to me. As a matter of fact, He really wants to listen to me. Although I know that He is able to do all, He wants to hear from my mouth what I need, He wants to know that I trust Him, He wants to know what worries me, what I plan for the future. How many hours, my mother, my sister and myself spent talking to God! Honestly I dont remember of one single night that we would not speak to God. Our conversation was very frank, with an open heart and I learned that God listened to us for sure! That is why I am certain that He is always ready to listen to me. And I do not miss the opportunity. GOD SPEAKS WITH ME: I also learned that God speaks with me, always. I dont need to wait for something marvelous or pyrotechnical. He speaks through simple ways, not only complicated ways. One thing is for sure, he always speaks to me. I just need to keep alert to listen to what he tells me. I saw my mother making decisions because she listened to God, I saw that He really had spoken to her. I learned then to listen to God! What a wonderful thing Several times He spoke to me through the weirdest and different ways; through a boy on the street looking for a place to stay, through a comment that I heard on the line at the bank, in other instances through a very humble person making a comment that I would never imagined to hear. Incredible the ways God spoke to me! Shame that a lot of people wait for something supernatural in order to hear God and forget that our everyday lives are more than supernatural, and God uses all of it. God speaks through pain and unpleasant situations, that a lot of times, because we are a stubborn son, we do not listen to him before making decisions. If I learn to listen to him, He is ready to teach me and guide me every day. Do you think I want anything different? GOD IS FAIR AND TAKES CARE OF ME: My mother taught me that God is fair. I should trust to him the justice. But also, by Him, wait to be judged. I learned that He sees my heart and not what I say or do. I learned that he will always judge me every day and thats why I must seek to follow his commandments. I learned that nobody escapes from Gods justice. I should not worry if I am injusticed, slandered, offended, my God will come to my defense; the battle is the Lords. He will guard me each day of my life. GOD HAS A PLAN: Because he loves me, He has only one plan for me! Therefore he gave me a digital that is just mine, a DNA, only mine, He made me unique! He drew me a plan that only I can achieve. Now it leaves me to be certain of that plan. In order to do that, I must talk to him, trust His justice and be ready to listen to Him! I can be sure that He will never abandon me and no matter what happens, He will not give up the plan He has for me. And most importantly, GOD IS FAITHFUL and I can truly count on His promises. I thank Him for the mother He gave me, for His loyalty, for the plan He has for my life, He chose her, knowing that she would have a very difficult boy to raise! After all, that is part of His plan for her life! To all mothers, and especially to my Mom Elza, have a Happy Mothers Day!

Edition 14511for news 24/7 go to bocaratontribune.com www.bocaratontribune.comMay 10, through May 16, 2013 ColumnistsThe Boca Raton Tribune Practicing ones faith in the pragmatic, bottom-line business and professional world, where seeing is believing, is difficult enough. Faith is especially hard to come by during times of economic adversity. A recent mortgage fraud case reminded me of this truth. The borrowers business grew rapidly by purchasing houses at below market prices and rehabbing them, making them more attractive to potential buyers. The business owners would leverage as much debt as possible, borrowing large amounts of money to acquire as many low-cost houses as the bank allowed. Eventually, however, mistakes were made. The borrower made poor decisions on some properties; reconstruction work was slowed on others, and the company bought houses much faster than it could sell them. As a result, a number of the properties remained unsold, consuming much of the borrowers available cash resources. Eventually the borrowers had an important decision to make: Do we admit our problem and accept the consequences, or do we lie to the lender and use their money on other projects? Unfortunately, fear overcame their conscience and faith, leading the company into fraud and ultimately, criminal charges. Faith, in all likelihood, was violated in two ways in this case. First, the borrower proceeded more aggressively than the unstable real estate market warranted, even with the devalued status of properties that were purchased. Most likely, the borrowers did not seriously consult God for guidance about whether to proceed when the growing risk became evident. Second, the borrower lacked the faith to trust God with the outcome of being straightforward with the bank about the increasing debt load. Instead, the owners of the company chose to lie and presume they could wriggle their way out of debt by spending more. (Does that scenario sound at all familiar?) They might have avoided their fraud and the criminal consequences if they had heeded the promise of Psalm 23:4, which offers the assurance that God can be trusted when it says, Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for You are with me. This verse and the entire psalm were written by a shepherd faced with the daunting task of guiding his sheep through dark, threatening passages where the animals might encounter predators of various kinds. Operating a real estate business is very different from shepherding sheep, but the principle remains the same: Followers of Jesus need to trust their Lord in times of uncertainty and even danger. Another passage, Philippians 4:6-7, offers a similar promise: 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 Jesus. The owners of the residential refurbishing business did not believe or act upon this assurance. If you are faced with a similar dilemma, I have a recommendation: Choose faith, not fear.

His book, How to Prosper in Business Without Sacrificing Integrity, gives a biblical approach for doing business with integrity.Keeping Faith During AdversityFAITHBy Rick Boxx DIVORCE FLORIDA STYLEBy Mike Gora Grand Old Opry Q I am the mother of a lovely 12-year-old young woman. Her father and I were never married but lived together for several years, before and after her birth. During our relationship I worked, and still work as a schoolteacher. He never worked. His father however, is a multi-millionaire who has a face and voice which everyone in the world would recognize as a Nashville based country and western recording star. During our relationship, the grandfather refused to recognize my daughter in any way, or have anything to do with her, perhaps because we are of a different race. However, on Christmas of each year, he would give his son a quarter million dollars for support for the next year. If emergencies would arise during the year, more money was available. No money was saved. I was told that no savings were necessary; his dad would always be there. A year ago he abandoned us for a younger woman, married her and another child is on the way. He kicked us out of his house, but rented a house for us, paid support, and kept our daughter in private school and sent her to camp last summer. Now that the school year is over, he says we are on our own. He says that he has no money, no income, no skills and never worked in his life. I have appealed to him and his father, who will not even acknowledge we exist. What are my rights? I cant even afford a lawyer. A If you can prove the history of the grandfathers regular giving through bank records and testify about your knowledge of the lifestyle that you had enjoyed, you are likely to be very successful in obtaining child support, attorneys fees and, perhaps, extra money for private school and summer camp. Florida case law allows that proof of regular substantial giving, under circumstances where it is very likely to continue, forms a basis for child support under Florida child support guidelines, which include money for extras such as private school and summer camp if usually provided. The gift income can also support an award of attorneys fees and court costs. Keep in mind, however, that guidelines for child support is somewhat limited in amount. On the $250,000 tax-free gift income you mentioned, adjusted for your income, the guidelines support would be just under $2,000 a month. The school and camps may or may not be found affordable by a court. Health insurance for your daughter and some payment toward non-covered medical expenses might be provided, as well as some life insurance to secure the child support. On the facts you present Im sure you can find competent counsel to take on your case. Michael H.

As luck would have it, Fagien got a better offer from the owners of Hard Rock Cafe, so Michael and his twin brother Steven opened a Jazziz nightclub as one of the first additional attractions at the Seminole Hard Rock Live in Hollywood. Seminole Hard Rock was not an ideal fit and after three and a half years, Jazziz left the building. The Fagien brothers returned their full energy to the music magazine they founded in 1983. Jazziz is now the largestcirculation jazz magazine in the world, and it finally has a companion Jazziz Nightlife restaurant and concert facility in the very same spot the Fagien brothers first considered in Mizner Park. We always wanted to have a Jazziz club in Boca Raton, Michael Fagien said recently during a tour of the facility. Both my brother Steven and I live in Boca Raton. Steven moved here in 1988 and I followed from Gainesville in 2000. Opening Jazziz Nightlife is the culmination of our dream. Media were invited to pre-concert tour before actress-singer Molly Ringwald took to the stage with her virtuoso jazz quartet. Ringwald is a perfect example of the fact that jazz music has many facets, not just one narrow definition. The problem with jazz is that many believe it is just for a certain kind of people, Fagien explain. There is an image of jazz snobs. We are not that way at all. Jazz is what you believe it is. To prove that we often book people who are not primarily thought of as jazz musicians. Molly Ringwald is better known as an award-winning film and stage actress, but her interest in the Great American Songbook and jazz classics is real. Ringwalds father was a professional jazz musician and she grew up with music. She proved her prowess powerfully with a killer set that underscored the allure of her sultry, husky singing style. Both the Fagien brothers have medical degrees earned at the University of Florida. Steven Fagien still practices surgery in Boca Raton. It was at the U of F that Michael developed a passion for jazz, and began writing about it. When he decided to start a magazine, Michael got a big boost from Dr. Robert Cade, inventor of Gatorade. The University of Florida got the rights to Gatorade, but Dr. Cade did just fine, says Fagien. We started a partnership 25 years ago. He always believed in Jazziz magazine. One thing that brought Jazziz to international prominence was its innovation of a free 5-inch CD with each issue. We became the de facto promoters of the 5-inch CD format, Fagien notes. We still include CDs with our print issues. As good as CD quality is, there is no substitute for live performance. The Fagiens poured untold amounts of money to transform what had been Zed 451 restaurant into a stateof-the-art restaurant and live concert facility. Jazziz pledges to bring in top artists of all descriptions. Private memberships are offered as well as are New Orleans-style brunches on weekends. National acts tend to be booked Wednesday and Thursday with 7 and 9 p.m. dinner sets. Tickets are required only in the Live Room where the stage is. Live entertainment is offered other nights at no charge. Coming attractions include Larry Carlton May 15-16; Yellowjackets May 22-23; Nestor Torres May 2930 and Bobby Caldwell June 5-6.

May 10, through May 16, 2013 www.bocaratontribune.com B2 Edition 145 Section B Entertainment Skip SheffieldParis-Manhattan a Wood Allen Fan FilmWoody Allen is not universally admired. In fact some despise the whining, neurotic Brooklyn comedian who found his voice in movies that express his sad-sack outlook on life. If you dont like Woody Allen you will not like ParisManhattan. If you do, you may find this debut film by writer-director Sophie Lellouche a fluffy, slight delight. Woody is the muse to Alice Ovitz (Alice Togliani), the lovely daughter of a Paris pharmacist. Alice has a large portrait of Woody in her apartment. Her thoughts are often expressed in quotations from Woody Allen movies, spoken in Allens New York voice and subtitled in French, which makes Woody seem all the more deep and profound. Alice is gorgeous but insecure and single. Her well-meaning father (Michele Aumont) is always pushing her to find some suitable match. One such candidate is handsome Pierre (Louis-Do de Lenaquesaing), who takes an interest in Alice at a party. However, Alices more aggressive since Helene (Marie Delterre) muscles in on the conversation and snatches Pierre away before Alices disbelieving eyes. Alice continues living her solitary life, working in the pharmacy and finishing her education. Helene marries Pierre but all is not peaches and cream. Alices father gives the drug store business to her at age 30, and it seems despite her great beauty is destined to spend the rest of her life behind the cash register. Then two men enter her life. Vincent (Yannick Soulier) is dashing, sophisticated. Victor (Patrick Bruel) is a lowly burglar alarm salesman who is older than Alice and has never even seen a Woody Allen film. Paris-Manhattan has a plot patterned after Play It Again, Sam. Instead of Humphrey Bogart giving advice to hapless Woody Allen, Allen himself gives advice to frustrated Alice. The film is an unabashed fan letter to Woody Allen and to Paris. It culminates with an appearance by the man himself. It is not a great or profound film, but if you are a fan of Allen and beautiful women, you may find it delightful.

This multi-dining room restaurant features the food styling of Master Chef Lindsay Autry and Pastry Chef Sarah Side. Manager Bruce Siegel advised us as to several choices to consider for our report. Charlotte, Bob and this reviewer appreciated the creative food approach starting with the heading of Crisp and Freshfive items. Suggestions including an excellent roasted and raw beet salad with ceringola olives, charred chick peas, fetaall in a Greek vinaigrette. A fine mlange. The shaved vegetable salad with a selection of local veggies, brussel sprouts and pecorino romano plus a lemon vinaigrette had a nice individual flavor but, as a combination, was not our favorite. Try the Celery Caesar salad here we have shaved celery root, celery greens and croutons in a house made Caesar dressing nice combination but not a Caesar salad. Two additional offerings are listed. The Warm and Soulful category lists a very tasteful roasted tomato soup with a bit of pulled mozzarella, herbs and roasted swank peppers. Kudosthe grilled octopus was tender yet firm with true taste, garnished with fava beans, artichokes and a lemon coriander aioli. Delicious Key West shrimp on toasted ciabatta with scampi butter was a treat as was the roasted bone marrow a BBQ short rib beautifully prepared with pickled shallots and crispy onions shards well try the sweetbreads next time. Main course choices featured a crispy whole branzini most delicious fish with arugula, shaved fennel and caramelized shallots accented with grapefruit charmoula. A must try. We sampled a rich tasting boneless half chicken with a great lemony orzo risotto, tiny leafy brussel sprouts, pepperocini and feta excellent! A grilled rib eye, done medium as requested, featured salsify, fine wild mushrooms, plus grilled radicchio with a fine horseradish sauce. A highlight was the bowl of orecchietti pasta with roasted tomato, wild mushrooms and local greens in a nice ricotta salata. One may also choose from herb roasted salmon, Florida snapper or a filet of beef. Available sides were smashed fingering potatoes similar to hot potato salad in their crme fraiche and chive bath. Crispy brussel sprouts and broccoli n cheese round out the sides. We sampled only four of the six dessert listings each a brilliant choice. Roasted pineapplehazelnut financier, whipped creme fraiche with toasted cashews; then a coconut angel food berry shortcake with vanilla Chantilly; then a dreamscicle of chocolate orange mousse, orange ice cream and candied almonds and lastlygrilled corn pound cake with honey ice cream, blackberry jam and sugared pecans.

There was the traditional live Mexican music, childrens activities, rides and food vendors. But arguably, the highlight was the Chihuahua Race, sponsored by the Animal Rescue Force of South Florida, Inc. Fans cheered as four sleek, purebred teeny-tiny dogs raced down a 30-foot track toward the finish line in hopes of grabbing the title of Queen or King of Cinco de Mayo and win an appropriately petite trophy with a Chihuahua figurine on top. Several other dogs were eliminated in heats earlier in the day. There even was a celebrity race where Archie, who was adopted at the festival last year, returned to compete with Louie, who was hoping to find a home this year. Cinco de Mayo commemorates the Mexican armys defeat of French forces in 1862.

The driver of the Jeep, later identified as John Thomas, backed into a parking space and after about 20 seconds, left and drove to the BP. After several minutes they left the BP. As officers followed the vehicle, they observed several traffic violations and stopped the vehicle. While speaking with Thomas, and passengers Sam Webb and Jamel Hughes, officers smelled the odor of marijuana emanating from the vehicle. Officers searched all three and located a baggie of marijuana in Webbs pants and multiple drivers licenses and debit cards belonging to four different people in Hughes shoe. When officers searched the Jeep, they found a window punch and broken auto glass. All three suspects told officers they had left Ft. Lauderdale about 10:00 a.m. and drove to Boca Raton, but had no planned destination. Webb admitted the marijuana was for personal use. Hughes said he had no idea why the drivers licenses and debit cards were in his shoe. Officers spoke to the people whose identification they found and were told that the items were stolen during various auto burglaries that occurred in North Port, Jupiter, and Palmetto. Officers arrested all three and charged them with loitering and prowling. Thomas was also charged with possession of burglary tools, theft and driving on a suspended license. Webb was charged with possession of marijuana. Hughes was also charged with theft and violation of probation.On Thursday, March 28 at about 10:50 p.m., Boca Raton Police officers responded to a report of a carjacking that occurred at 521 NE 43 Street. The victim told officers she had just arrived home from work when she was approached by a male asking for directions. As she was giving the directions, the male pointed a long, black handgun at her and demanded her car keys. After she gave him the keys, the suspect got into her 2008 black Nissan Altima bearing Florida tag 881TFF and drove off. The victims purse, which contained cash and credit cards, an iPhone, iPad, and laptop were in the car. The victim was not injured. During the investigation, detectives with the Boca Raton Police Services Department learned about an armed carjacking in Delray Beach where a white Dodge Charger was stolen. Hours later, deputies from the Broward County Sheriffs Office (BSO) located the Charger along with the car from the Boca Raton carjacking at the Plantation Inn in Plantation. Surveillance video showed both cars arriving two hours after the carjacking in Delray Beach. It also showed Myronn Berry driving the car belonging to the Boca Raton victim. Most of the victims property was recovered, along with majority of the cash stolen. Both Berry and Alexander Boyd were arrested by BSO. Detectives from the Boca Raton Police Services Department then went to the Broward County jail to interview Boyd. Boyd gave investigators detailed information about the night of the carjacking in Boca Raton. The red and gold color car the victim saw at the scene when she was carjacked was also recovered as a stolen vehicle by BSO in Lauderdale Lakes. Detectives went to the Broward County jail to talk with Myronn Berry who was uncooperative and refused to speak. Based on the information laid out by detectives Berry was charged with armed carjacking.Carjacking Suspect Already Jacked UpSuspect Confessed to Burglarizing Convenience Store Twice in as Many DaysLighting may not strike the same place twice but one suspected burglar struck the same convenience store twice, just days apart, police said. Police responded to an alarm at the B-Kwik, 1921 North Federal Highway, shortly after 3 a.m. on Friday, April 19. Officers found the front door smashed out, drawers opened and items strewn around. A surveillance video showed a male throwing a rock through the front window at about 3 a.m., police said. The suspect took an undisclosed amount of cash and lottery tickets then left through the front door, police said. On Sunday, April 21 at about 11:30 p.m., officers answered another alarm at the B-Kwik and found an identical crime scene as two days earlier. Surveillance video showed a man who appeared to be the same suspect. On May 5th, investigators learned that Broward County Sheriffs Office deputies had arrested a suspect for multiple convenience store burglaries. Investigators showed the suspect, Vincent Moorman, footage from the surveillance video and he confessed to both breakins. Moorman also confessed to burglarizing the Crown Liquor store on May 1. Moorman, already in jail in Broward, was additionally charged with three counts of Burglary to a Structure, Grand Theft, Petit Theft and criminal mischief.

Boca man Arrested After Fleeing From Police, Hiding in TrunkA Boca Raton man was arrested early Sunday morning after he allegedly pulled off the ultimate game of hide-and-seek, police said. Maximilian Schroeder was charged with fleeing and eluding, marijuana and drug paraphernalia possession. He was booked and released from the Palm Beach County Jail after posting a $3,000 bond. An officer in Highland Beach police was targeting speeders when he clocked a red Mitsubishi traveling 57 mph in a 35 mph speed zone, according to an arrest report. When officers pulled over the car, they were baffled because they couldnt find anyone inside. Thats because the driver was actually hiding in the trunk, police later discovered. When the officer initiated a traffic stop, the driver turned off his headlights and drove into a parking lot. But when the officer approached the car, nobody was inside. Police watched as the car eventually drove off again with its lights off. On several more occasions, police would pull over the car only to find that it was empty. But on the last attempt, police said they realized that the driver, later identified as Schroeder, was using the fold-down rear seat to hide in the trunk. POLICE BRIEFS (9) 6332 9 5 4 6 3 5 5 3 5 2

Brazilian Ambassador to the U.S. Mauro Vieira gave an enlightening keynote address at the recent International Days held in Tallahassee, sponsored by the Florida Chamber of Commerce. It highlighted not only how Brazil and the U.S. have worked together to share prosperity, but also how that cooperative spirit is working to guarantee a brighter future for the two nations. We have a political and business relationship based on shared values, Vieira said in his address to a packed house. We have an important political relationship that reinforces our economic ties. The two nations, he said, are multiethnic, multi-cultural democracies. And while both have been shaken by a staggering recession that is just now beginning to ease, the U.S. and Brazil have weathered the storm nicely. Vieira noted how the Latin American nation has experienced a high level of growth in the last decade. More than 24 million people rose out of extreme poverty to enter the middle class, a sizeable segment of the population. Brazil counts about 100 million citizens in that division. The World Bank, he said, declared that Brazil grew threefold between 2000 and 2011. Right now, it has a respectable unemployment rate of 4.6 percent and inflation is under control at 5.8 percent. The Florida-Brazil link is most obvious in the tourist trade, where Brazilians taking advantage of their generally good wealth and strength of the nations money have few qualms about spending that cash in the U.S. Last year, tourists from Brazil left $11 billion in the cash registers of stores, restaurants and other shopping venues around the country. Florida is a special state, said Vieira. It was Brazils first partner state in the U.S. Nearly two dozen different types of products are exported to Florida and Miami International Airport is Brazils hub to the world. The Brazilian business sector sees Florida as an excellent investment, said Vieira. The state is well developed, with a huge financial and economic base. Its universities have opened themselves to Latin America. Many important Brazilian companies are located in Florida and in the U.S. Thirty firms with roots in Brazil are thriving on Florida turf. They have made a local investment of $360 million, he said, and created good-paying jobs for some 2,000 people. The ambassador also touched on an educational initiative that had created a new connection between Brazil and the U.S. The leading South American country has created a program called Science without Borders, which offers shared research opportunities between the two countries. It also offers students a unique learning experience in a different, but allied country. The program concentrates on the so-called STEM courses Science, Technology, Engineering and Math. Vieira said he viewed its operations at Florida State University in Tallahassee where 20 Brazilian students have arrived. That brings to more than 100 the number of young people from Brazil taking part at Florida schools along. That brings to 5,000 the number of students who came to America to expand their own horizons. He said the host nation, which pays the total cost of the program, is looking to expand even more. Even Brazilian music, entertainment and culture are ripe for sharing, Vieira said. It promotes immigration and friendship, making it easier for each society to understand the other. Vibrant economies produce more cultural arts. He cited Miami as an area where there is lots of culture and music, especially from Latin America. At the same time it is working the conduit with Florida, Brazil is strengthening its own resource system. This an area such as energy, Brazil, like America, is focusing on oil and gas, biofuel, renewable energy and the civilian use of nuclear energy. Brazil hosted a Dialogue on Energy, one of four initiative established by U.S. President Barack Obama. Vieira said Brazil is doing a healthy oil exporting business and has 15 million barrels of oil in reserve, putting the nation in 14th place in the world. Continued search for oil and investments in shale oil investigation are seen as lucrative future avenues. Brazil wants to share that future along with the United States. Regarding shale oil, Brazil has much to gain in cooperation with the U.S, he said. Access to the technology for investigation and distribution will create business opportunities in both countries. In his address, Vieira looked to a bright future shared by Brazil and the United States. I only have words of thanks to the Florida Chamber of Commerce for organizing International Days.The little people, we the citizens.Citizens et al v City of Boca Raton, Palm Beach Circuit Court Case # 2013CA006241. A must read for all those that have been following the ongoing saga concerning our City Councils actions regarding the ARCHSTONE DEVELOPMENT project and the continuing resistance by the little people, we the citizens.. This newest chapter begins with a Council action taken on March 11, 2013 where, on a 4 to 1 vote, approving a development order for ARCHSTONE II over the objection of citizens, over the declaration of the previous circuit court ruling and with the Councils distain and disgust for having to explain themselves to the little people, we the citizens. So the little people, we the citizens, took up the gauntlet once again and, represented by three individuals, this writer included, filed an action against the City of Boca Raton challenging the ARCHSTONE II development order as not being consistent with the Citys duly-adopted Comprehensive Plan. So the little people, we the citizens, argue as aggrieved or adversely affected persons that will suffer adverse effects to a protected interest promised by the Citys comprehensive plan. The action brought under Florida Statute, Chapter 163, Community Planning Act, which requires local government to adopt a comp plan with mandatory elements and demanding that actions by local government be consistent with the adopted plan. Boca Raton is no exception to this section of Florida statute. So, the little people, we the citizens, demand that the city of Boca Raton honor the dictates of its very own adopted comprehensive plan. The Community Planning Act places the burden for enforcement on the little people, we the citizens. The citizen enforcement section provides that any aggrieved or adversely affected party may bring a civil action for injunctive or other relief to prevent the local government from taking an action on a development order which materially alters the use or density or intensity of a property that is not consistent with the plan. So, the little people, we the citizens, have a basis in law to bring this action and to ask a court to conduct a de novo hearing, a fact finding hearing, to impartially establish whether this case materially alter Boca Ratons comprehensive plan. An impartial hearing is necessary in light of the egregious treatment that the little people, we the citizens, endured at the March 11th public meeting, a session that was anything but impartial. The balance of the legal and factual arguments forming the basis of this lawsuit can be found on the Clerk of the Courts website and it is highly recommended that you take the time to review the arguments contained within. Now as I stated at the outset, for every legal action there is a legal reaction. After being served with the complaint, the City is obligated to answer within a 20 day period of time. They, however, may take alternative actions to delay such an answer. These actions can take the form of motion(s) to dismiss for a myriad of reasons. All of which will have to be heard and ruled upon by the court before proceeding forward with discovery and an eventual trial on the merits. So the little people, we the citizens, in our complaint, point out 9 sections of Boca Ratons adopted comprehensive plan that, arguably, are not complied with by the ARCHSTONE II development order. Only after an impartial judicial determination will either side know who is correct, and that is exactly what is being asked for by the little people, we the citizens. So stay tuned. The legal process will take time. The courts will make the appropriate rulings and the case will find the appropriate result. The lesson to be learned here is it that when there is a non-responsive elected body, the little people, we the citizens, have a legal right and a moral duty to fight. All government is a necessary evil. Allowing this evil to overtake the little people, we the citizens, can only result in the loss of more and more of our personal freedoms and a breakdown of the social pact to live within a civil society that is responsive to the little people, we the citizens, and not to itself. We the people perhaps is the most important phrase that has ever been contemplated by humankind and placed into practice as the prime directive for how we, as a society chose to live our lives..It is incomprehensible that this prime objective should be set aside for any reason, or in this case, for no articulated reason at all..Florida and Brazil: Hands of Friendship, Cooperation, Across the Ocean CARLO BARBIERIBy Carlo Barbieri THE CITIZENS VOICEBy Al Zucaro .For Every Legal Action There Is A Legal Reaction..

Edition 14525for news 24/7 go to bocaratontribune.com www.bocaratontribune.comMay 10, through May 16, 2013Business News Boca Entrepreneur Built Tech Business Into Publicly Traded Company and Experienced Similar Success With 2 Other Companies53-year-old Jim Daleen doesnt have to work anymore. The successful entrepreneur and software expert has experienced professional success most people only dream about. Daleen was the founder and CEO of Daleen Technologies, a global provider of high performance billing and customer care software solutions. In three years, revenue grew from zero to $43.5 million; he raised $130 million in capital and built a global workforce to 535 employees. The Boca Raton-based company went public and was eventually sold. The entrepreneur was most recently the CEO of CPG Solutions which saw 500% in sales growth and profits and was sold to an international buyer. Before that, he was the CEO of Affinity Express where he increased revenue by 400% and led a successful turnaround and sale of the company from 2003-2006. So why does Daleen now spend most days in a rented, 700-squarefoot office space in Boca Raton, working with his son and two others in four cubicles? The answer is simple: Daleens taste for new challenges and his familys obstacles while owning and operating a small pizza place in Wisconsin. The biggest obstacle for a food and beverage business is how to handle the transient nature of the clientele, says Daleen. Its a lesson he and his family learned firsthand when they opened Louies Pizza in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin. Daleen is now spearheading the effort behind AppSuite, (www. mobileappsuite.com) a new phone application company aimed at serving the food and beverage industry. For the first time ever, daily time spent in mobile apps has surpassed desktop and mobile web usage. The companys application is a mobile application supported by a content management system that operates as a powerful and convenient customer loyalty tool. Appsuites CMS can rapidly be deployed on iPhone or an Android without the restaurant spending money to develop its own app. The platform allows the restaurateur to build, brand and expand business with their patrons via the growing population of mobile users. From May 18-21, AppSuite will make its nationwide industry debut at the National Restaurant Association Show in Chicago. Restaurants spend much of their marketing budget on finding the new customer, we believe engaging the current customer is essential to maximizing revenue opportunities in this hyper competitive marketplace, says Daleen. The Center for Retail Management at Northwestern University revealed that about 1215% of a companys most loyal customers contribute 55-70% of total sales. Daleen says his familys firsthand experience in that Wisconsin pizza parlor, combined with his 25 years in technology and software development, are the fuel that power AppSuites game-changing service. Daleen adds, It is a thrill for my family and I to provide a new product to a competitive industry which leads to a sustainable method for increased revenue for restaurant owners everywhere. And Daleen knows all about increasing revenue. Florida Atlantic Universitys Louis and Anne Green Memory and Wellness Center of the Christine E. Lynn College of Nursing broke ground on a 5,000-square-foot extension to the Center on the Boca Raton campus today. The extension, which will be connected to the current Center via a covered walkway, is expected to be completed in late 2013. The Memory and Wellness Center will be open during construction and is accepting applications for current and future openings for participants in the Center program. Louis and Anne Green announced a commitment to support the expansion of the Center in December 2012. Dementia is a terrible affliction, said Louis Green, who helped fund the original building in 2004. Anne and I identified a need after seeing so many local families affected. There were not adequate facilities here to help people deal with memory loss and all that comes with it. As the number of people diagnosed with dementia continues to grow, we saw a need to grow the Memory and Wellness Center. The addition will house a large multipurpose room for Center activities and community education as well as a kitchen, an art studio, nurse and case manager offices and treatment rooms. The increased capacity will enable the Center to serve more individuals in the community who suffer from memory loss and their caregivers. We are deeply grateful to Louis and Anne Green for joining hands with us to take the Center into the next phase of its development, said FAU President Mary Jane Saunders. Our University and our community could not ask for better friends than these caring philanthropists, who are making a real difference in thousands of lives through their generous gifts. The Center averages 16,000 visits per year and offers a wide range of services and programs to individuals with mild to moderate memory disorders, including Alzheimers disease and related dementia. Visits begin with a comprehensive memory evaluation. The evaluation results often help diagnose a memory disorder and develop a treatment plan in cooperation with a patients physicians. The Center provides an active and secure place for families to bring spouses or parents who are experiencing memory loss, and the caregiver support programs have a positive impact on life at home. In January 2013, the Center was been named a Specialized Alzheimers Services Center by Floridas Agency for Health Care Administrations Division of Health Quality Assurance. The dementiaspecific adult day center was the first to receive the designation.FAU Breaks Ground on Louis and Anne Green Memory and Wellness Center Extension

The fact is, even though Carmelo Anthony and LeBron James were both drafted the same year; Melo has advanced only as far as the second round in his 11 year career. Now can you imagine if LeBron James had only been as far as the second round in his playing career? The ridicule and the scrutiny would be relentless and constant. The expectations placed on LeBron James are completely unfair and outlandish. Yes he is the best player in the NBA and yes he will go down as one of the greatest players to ever play the game. But why is LeBron held to a different standard compared to Melo or anyone else? The truth is, public perception can be a strange thing. If you visit any blog, NBA Facebook page, or comment thread, you will see the vulgar hatred and the unprecedented ridicule constantly being directed at LeBron. The bottom-line is, LeBron should be admired and respect based on what he has accomplished on the basketball court. The funny thing is many basketball fans and commentators used to give him a hard time for not having a championship. And now he has that elusive ring. So why is there such a stark difference in perception and popularity between the two players? Is it that Carmelo Anthony plays on the worlds biggest stage and LeBron plays in South Beach? That quite possibly could be the reason. But the most plausible theory is that many fans and pundits still havent recovered from the public relations nightmare that was The Decision. Its funny how society can easily forgive athletes for murder, rape and dog abuse. But an athlete who made a mistake in judgment by participating in a TV special that had unbelievable ratings nonetheless, cant be forgiven? Carmelo Anthony never did a Decision Special. The fact that he alienated an entire fan base in Denver by practically forcing the Nuggets organizations hand is now ancient history. The unprofessionalism and selfishness that he portrayed while with Denver was deeply disturbing. Did LeBron handle himself in a similar manner in Cleveland? Nope. LeBron honored his contract and he never complained about the roster or about having to carry a subpar team on a nightly basis. He dedicated his heart and soul to the city and to the team. But LeBron did a Decision Special on ESPN. Talk about an unforgivable crime against humanity right? So is this the only thing that separates the two players as far as popularity and public image is concerned? It sure seems like it. Believe it or not, Anthony even passed LeBron in jersey sales. Now, there is no denying the fact that Anthony is a very gifted player. Anthony is an absolute scoring machine averaging 23.9 points per game this past season. However, there is no way he should have more jersey sales than the best all-around player in the entire league. Do I have to remind you of the type of season LeBron had last year? Well I will anyways. He won an Olympic Gold medal, an NBA championship, an NBA Finals MVP award, an NBA regular season MVP award all in the same year. While this year, he has orchestrated an historical 27 game winning streak and he led his team to the best record in the NBA. Also, he just won another league MVP award. But it just doesnt seem to matter to certain fans. The fact is, regardless of what LeBron continues to accomplish in his career as far as records, stats and championships are concerned; he will never please his unrelenting and unreasonable critics. That is just the cold hard truth. Conversely, Melo knocks down a three in the Garden and he is praised and beloved. He could go his entire career without even sniffing the NBA Finals and he will still be regarded as an elite talent. However, when LeBron comes up short, he is labeled as a choke artist. Talk about a serious double standard. But nothing is going to change. LeBron and Melo will continue to be evaluated differently and held to completely different standards all because of one Decision Special announcement on ESPN. That is pretty unfathomable for the unbiased NBA observer to understand. Because trying to understand the rationale of a LeBron hater is like trying to understand the mindset of a patient in a mental ward. FAU Announces Initial Football Television Coverage
Edition 14529for news 24/7 go to bocaratontribune.com www.bocaratontribune.comMay 10, through May 16, 2013SportsBy Chad BeattieTampa, Fla. Lynn University closed out the 2013 baseball season with 12-6 and 13-7 doubleheader losses to sixth-ranked Tampa on Saturday afternoon. Jason Matusik went 4-for-8 with a home run, four runs scored and five runs driven in while also tossing a scoreless inning on the mound. Paul Stortini and Mike Gonzalez also added three RBI. The Fighting Knights end the year with a 30-20 overall mark and 13-11 record in Sunshine State Conference play. Things went south in the first inning of game one when LU hit three batters and walked in a run to give Tampa (39-10, 19-5 SSC) a 1-0 lead. The Spartans would go on to score three more until the Blue & White added a run in the fifth with a Gonzalez RBI single. Lynn took a 6-5 lead in the sixth when it scored five runs. Matusik started LUs run with a two-run shot to right center field while Gonzalez followed three batters later with a RBI double. Stortini then put the Fighting Knights on top with a twoout, two-run double to the left center gap. The Spartans offense proved too much as they would respond with three runs in the bottom half of the inning and tack on four more in the seventh and eighth frames to claim the 12-6 victory. Tampa took advantage of some wildness and an error in the opening inning of game two, to jump out to a 7-0 lead. Lynn closed the gap to 7-4 in the third with RBI base knocks by Alex Freedman and Matusik. Two runs in each of the next three innings pushed the game out of reach. The Blue & White looked to close the gap in their final game of the season and did that with three runs in the sixth off RBI singles from Elasik and Joey Sharkey. Matsuik then came to the mound in the bottom of the sixth to pitch in his first collegiate game. The senior walked the first batter and surrendered a double but induced consecutive pop flys before striking the final batter. Lynn returns 16 starters in 2014, including four field starters and one starting pitcher.Baseball Season Comes to an End On May 7, 2013, the Donna Klein Jewish Academy Lady Eagles won the Independent Athletic League Girls Tennis Championship over The Sagemont School of Weston by the score of 4 1. First singles player, sixth grader Jessica Siegel, won easily 8 1, and third singles player, eighth grader Dana Lipson, followed along and won 8 2. Second singles player, eighth grader Molly Gross, trailed her opponent 6 2 but rallied to win the next 6 games and clinch the match for the Lady Eagles 8 6. In doubles, Haylee Friedman and Megan Sharp won their match 8 6. The DKJA Middle School Boys Tennis Team finished in second place of the Independent Athletic League, losing to The Sagemont School of Weston by the score of 3 2. Benjamin Jultak won his singles match at third singles by the score of 8 4. In second doubles, Matthew Levine and Danny Israelian won in an exciting tie breaker 7 6. The Eagles finished with a final record of 6 1.Donna Klein Jewish Academy Lady Eagles won the Independent Athletic League Girls Tennis Championship The six North American Soccer League teams that will participate in the centenary edition of the Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup are a step closer to knowing their Second Round opponents following todays draw for the opening stages. The NASL teams will kick off in the Second Round on Tuesday, May 21, having been paired with clubs who contest their First Round games on May 14 and 15. I love this competition, said NASL Commissioner Bill Peterson. Everyone starts off with a fair chance to win the Cup and you never can predict who might get through to the final. With this being the Centennial Anniversary of the competition, it would be an exceptional honor to have a NASL club win. Our clubs are excited and will give it their all to capture the Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup. Some NASL clubs know they will face one of two opponents, while others must wait on a combination of results before learning their fate. Current league leaders Minnesota United FC are one of three NASL clubs guaranteed a home draw and will host either Des Moines Menace (PDL) or Madison 56ers (NPSL). Second placed Carolina RailHawks entertain either Carolina Dynamo (PDL) or Chattanooga FC (NPSL). As we have previously, we will continue to place a great deal of importance on the U.S. Open Cup, said RailHawks coach Colin Clarke. We had a great run in the tournament including the victory over the Galaxy and it meant a great deal to our season. We are delighted to be able to host the second round match and play another match in front of our home fans. It is important to have the support of your home crowd in a cup style tournament like this. The defending champion Tampa Bay Rowdies will travel either the short distance to face VSI Tampa Bay (USL PRO) or Orlando City U23s (PDL). San Antonios new Toyota Field will see the Scorpions host either FC Tucson (PDL) or Phoenix FC (USL PRO). We are excited to enter into this historic competition again, said Scorpions coach Tim Hankinson. The U.S. Open Cup remains a major priority for our club, as it represents a championship on the national level. We treat every opponent the same in terms of preparation, so we will train hard to be ready for our match on the 21st. Of the three teams heading out on the road, the Atlanta Silverbacks will travel to either Georgia Revolution (NPSL) or face Real Colorado Foxes (PDL) at a site to be determined, or travel to PSA Elite (USASA) or Laredo Heat (PDL). The Fort Lauderdale Strikers could face a long trip of more than 3,200 miles from Florida to Washington depending on results in the opening rounds. They could take on Laredo Heat (PDL), PSA Elite (USASA) or Doxa Italia (USASA) at home at Lockhart Stadium, or could travel to Sounders FC U-23 (PDL). Making their U.S. Open Cup bow in 2012, the NASL teams kept alive the traditional romance of a cup competition, as Carolina, Minnesota and San Antonio all progressed to the fourth round, claiming the scalps of MLS opposition along the way. Minnesota United went on the road and shocked Real Salt Lake 3-1 at Rio Tinto Stadium before losing in the fourth round to San Jose Earthquakes, earlier 2-1 winners over the NASL Fort Lauderdale Strikers. Carolina RailHawks earned a fourth round clash with Chivas USA by ousting LAs other team, the defending MLS champion Galaxy and striker Brian Shriver finished as the competitions leading scorer with five goals in three games. The San Antonio Scorpions beat Houston Dynamo, but the NASL club fell at the next hurdle to fellow giant-killer the Charlotte EaglesNASL Teams Discover Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup Opponents
30 -Edition 145 May 10, through May 16, 2013 www.bocaratontribune.comSportsStrikers goalkeeper Cody Laurendi will miss the remainder of the 2013 seasonFort Lauderdale Strikers goalkeeper Cody Laurendi will miss the remainder of the 2013 season due to a lacerated (ruptured) kidney, an injury he sustained after a collision with a Rowdies player on the April 27th loss to Tampa Bay at Lockhart Stadium. Glaeser, who has been struggling so far this season, was given the night off versus Tampa Bay. Cody has been pushing Matt all season long, says head coach Daryl Shore about the switch. With a couple of bad results, we felt like Cody deserved his chance. Laurendi was having a great game on goal until the 35th minute when he was involved in the collision with a Rowdies player in the penalty area. A kidney laceration (or rupture) occurs following a blunt impact to the lower back region. The extent of the injury can vary considerably, but according to team doctors, it will take Laurendi 6-9 months for a full recovery. Obviously we are very disappointed by the news, said Strikers head coach Daryl Shore. Cody is a good player whose presence will be missed on the field and in the locker room. Laurendi, 24, was injured in his first start and appearance for the Strikers after joining the club in March. He shared time with Strikers goalkeeper Matt Glaeser during the preseason, posting shutouts in each appearance. Before joining the Strikers, Laurendi played three seasons with the Puerto Rico Islanders. FAU Athletics Announces May Touchdown Thursday ScheduleFlorida Atlantic University Athletics, in conjunction with FAUs Alumni Association, has announced the dates for the three Touchdown Thursday events it will host together for the month of May.
